Hi there,

I just began to work on VNM and I was wondering if it was possible to create a free to play game for phone. Like "amour sucré" or the "is it love" franchise. My goal is to propose a game entirely free :LZSangel: but where you can pay to have more energy (each scene will cost energy) or DLC's, etc. :LZSbleh:

But I don't know the possibility of this program concerning this.

Thanks guys :LZSsmile:

theoretically yes, practically very difficult.

the problem is that all money options legally require data security, and you would have to find a programmer who can implement that data security into your game.
that requires specific knowledge that most of the hobby programmer and hobby-plugin writer around here simply don't have.

But if I make a commercial game, I could recruit someone able to do that once the game is done, no ? Someone that I pay of course.

yes - you just have to find that person (someone with the knowledge required), and need to find him/her early enough that the programming can be included in the game before it is complete

Before pursuing how to do this technically, you should definitely strongly consider if you WANT to do this. It's been my observation that any kind of free to play + in-app purchases (of ANY sort) seems to draw a truly immense, disproportionate amount of odium/vitriol.

Odium and vitriol don't bother me. Licenses like "Amour sucré" or "is it love" works and sell. Even if some people are not happy with that, they're not my target. So yeah, I'm quite sure I want to do that :LZSsmile:

 …I think I might need to switch from standard ATK/DEF up/down buffs to parameter altering states. I just had an actor whose usual attack against an enemy does ~25 do a buffed attack against a debuffed enemy for ~600…
just saw that titan quest is free on steam until the 23rd
Zombie status is now complete. I didn't have to do much in the way of changing how healing is applied to undead targets, was just a simple 3 line code. I thought I had to overhaul Game_Action lol. Everything else was doable by events. So.. Zombie: You turn undead. Your element changes to darkness. You're weak to light, you're strong to physical attacks and healing hurts you and revival items will kill you.
My Overworld might be a mix of inspiration from 2D Final Fantasy games, Breath of Fire, Battlechasers: Nightwar, Super Mario World, and Pillars of Eternity. If I can make it more in-depth than just walking from point A to point B, that might do a lot for the gameplay experience. Hmm...
