To me that is a very good thing. Hopefully the developers are working on a few extra features that have been requested. I saw on the steam forums that the discussion there has been pretty much the same as in this thread. Else they found some bugs or other kinks that needs ironed out. In any case, better a delayed great engine than a bad one that is on time!

Then I guess it must be an even better thing for you to wait longer and longer :troll:

I thought it would be about a month more to wait, now it is over two months and there is no sign that it is going to be released soon. Is there any update or can someone say if it is released in the next 2 months? I looked it up on steam and all it says is "2017", which can be tomorrow or 9 more months...

Why has hardly anyone heard of visual novelty? It's free, no programming required, and fully customizable. Why not just get that?

1) most free visual novel engines do have serious limitations, because you need a professional (paid) team to get everything fixed in a reasonable development time
2) this is the company forum of the company that will sell the VN-Maker, so of course we focus on our products and not on alternatives.

Yeah but there are not that many engines that are better than rpg maker. Smile game builder is catching up though but I am talking about the visual novel maker.

Visual Novelty is abandoned production wise from what I saw of it before.

I honestly think visual novel maker will be the top option for VN creators. No matter what engine you use right now, you know there are some issues with it. And now we hopefully get A simple yet powerful engine, probably an active community, lots of costumizing options, the ability to use scripts/plugins like in rpg maker and loads of other stuff...I am still superexcited for this!

I am hoping for that. Then I am going to switch engines.

An active community is always the best, especially since it allows user-created plugins :)

Hmm...

A lot of visual novels I've seen were created using Python/Ren Py...

I'm guessing that VN Maker will trump that like an [A♠] to a [Q♥] ?

My understanding is that this program is going to have the higher flexibility of programs like Ren Py with a better wysiwyg interface.

Edit: What in the world? I think the correct spelling of the program has an autocorrect to Snake. Can't get it to show what I actually wrote.

Auto-Spam Filters, soooooooo ANNNNNOOOOOOOYYYIIIIINNNNNGGGG!!!

Frets on Fire Fan Forum is the same way; Star Casino (a moniker used by Yusuke Chiba and Shinichi Osawa) gets turned to Star (spam) there. Pfffffttt....laaaaaaaaaammmmeeee......

Anyway, that sounds cool; may have to give it a shot whenever it is re-released.

I wonder if there is going to be an official stance about content... as you know VN are very well known for certain content... just curious.

This site will remain PG-13 matter what engine comes out. There are legal reasons for it.

Not everybody's making VNs that have adult content in them. I'm for instance making one that's effectively PG-13 due to some violence and language.

I didn't see a thread about if/when a pre-order will be available. I just watched the video on Steam and I'm in love with this. Just getting this out there; I'm probably gonna have me this.

It is under closed testing process. You will have to wait for a while until they make a decision about release date. They said that the engine was close to releasable state though ;)

I've noticed that there are a few more screenshots on the Steam page than there were a months or so ago. That always suggests progress for those watching things closely.

My original idea of a quest where you just paid money to complete it (it made sense in context) somehow got turned into decorate a table with a variety of choices so that the majority of players will have different looking tables.
