What do you think about Harem RPG's?

Definitely agree with LockeZ that you don't have to worry about popularity. Just because a few people on a rpgm forum say they dislike it doesn't mean it won't have an audience. Maybe it won't be here, sure, but who knows if you upload it elsewhere. Though I don't blame you for thinking that way. I'm kind of surprised at the responses.

Though I really think it's because of the use of the word "harem". That brings to mind 1 dude surrounded by hundreds of girls for no other reason other than the fact that "he's that dude". From the looks of what you wrote, it's more of a rpg with dating sim elements. Just stick to saying dating sim from now on.

I'd say, go for it. A lot can be done with a dating sim in terms of writing characters and relationships. But it's all about the work you put in and great planning as is with any game genre that focuses on story. Even if the romance is not the most important thing for the game, if it feels shallow people are going to call you out on it. Don't have all the choices fall in love at the same time in the same way. Maybe even have a choice just end in friendship because the two aren't compatible. Make the events an opportunity to show more back story meat for the characters, rather than just useless fluff.
Also don't make the lead some overpowered, super popular buffoon pls. And pleaseee do not make the girls turn to putty for him/lower their merit just because they are in love. Those are surefire ways to piss anyone off.

Link lovers; good news

I screamed and cried.
Mostly because I can finally revisit the Deku Palace whenever I want. Plus Deku Princess is my favorite character. And I can't wait to play as Deku Link to get hit by that cute dog.
Dekus are great.

But no really, I'm super happy they're doing this.

Drilling for motivation when the well is dry

Unlike Gabicho, seeing other people's progress on their games usually makes me feel the need to churn out some work of my own. Maybe I'm secretly competitive? >w>

Nah, I think for me it's more of a getting caught up in comparing myself to others deal. So I guess an issue of confidence?
It's nice to see how music is such a huge motivation for everyone. Though I've never heard of music being counterproductive to art. That's interesting.

And I agree with LockeZ! Working on multiple game projects helps.

Drilling for motivation when the well is dry

I'm the opposite for dressing up pfft. I can't get in the groove unless I'm in a hoodie and sweats. If I'm dressed up, I'll feel the need to go out shopping or something.

I triple quadruple support going for a walk. I can't tell you how many ideas have come from taking my dog out for a long walk. I always take my phone to jot them down too.
Also, celebrate the little victories. Maybe you didn't finish a whole level, but you redrew an asset or fixed up pieces of dialogue. Any step toward your goal is a good one.

I also find that seeing other people progress makes me kind of unmotivated. So I tend to stay away from any game tags.

[Offer][Artist] Face sets, cgs, etc.! Will work for trade too

@pianotm:: yes I do requests!

@jin69:: I sent a pm!

I also changed the post to reflect how I've been working. I also have a commission slot thing now. Thanks guys for looking!

[Offer][Artist] Face sets, cgs, etc.! Will work for trade too

@Link_2112 -
Oh, I am! I'm offering my services to a few teams right now that I'm interested in. I've always had the policy of "If I like what you're doing with your project, I'll work for free". But I didn't really know if it'd be right to put that in this post. I suppose I should...
And yeah I know not a lot of people have money right now. I'm in that situation with commissioning OSTs for my own games orz

I just put this thread out there in case anyone was interested even further down the line. Because unless I suddenly win the lotto or whatever, I'll prob always be able to offer art services.

@Max McGee -
I'm going to send you a pm, if that's ok!

[Offer][Artist] Face sets, cgs, etc.! Will work for trade too

Hello everyone!
I'm Gabicho and I've decided to stop hiding in my own projects and offer up my services for once! I want to get the team experience, so I'm willing to join up for any projects that are in need of an artist!
Or if you need just 1 thing, I'm all up for it.

What I can do:
- Face sets.= $10 for a full rpgmaker face set with emotions. Bust size is ok too!
- Ren'Py/Visual Novel busts. = $10 per bust per pose. expressions are free
- CGs. = $10 for simple cg. $25 for a detailed cg
- Banners and Promo art. = This includes title screens! Price is determinate on what you need me to do. It starts at $10 for a small piece.
- Character design. = $15 per character.+$3 if you want more outfits.

Examples of work:
RPG Maker Facesets:
icon size:

bust size:

Ren'Py Busts:


Promo Art:

Character Design:
^This basically shows how I design characters. I'm also able to do fantasy work!

Paypal is good.
Keep in mind that prices are final and are not negotiable unless otherwise stated.
If you're commissioning me for a big project, I'm willing to do a pay schedule.

Free work:
I do work for free, but it depends on how interested I am in your project. You can take a shot and ask, but please be understanding if I have to refuse.
If you're going to ask, please have a good outline of your story ready.

I'm willing to trade for music and scripts ONLY!!!
Please send me an example of your work first since the music I use for my games is very specific.
As for scripts, I'm really only in need of simple things like menus or title screens. So if you can do that, I'm definitely interested in trading.

My only rule is to please be respectful of my IRL schedule! I had the displeasure of working with a group that couldn't care less about my irl job so it was a hot mess. Basically I can't work on commissions during the weekend. So if that's the only time you're online, communication may be rough.
Also.... My work is for your project only!! You are not allowed to sell to others, give out to others or take credit for any art I do for you.

Thanks for looking!
Hope to start working for some cool projects! ヾ(ω` )/

Open commission slots::
1; filled as of 10.20.2014

Sorry it wasn't clear!

Ringmaster Clause Review

Thank you so much for this review! It really means a lot ;w;

Oh man!! I kept forgetting to change that piece of dialogue at the end. It was left over from playtesting.

"Sometimes I feel like the story was a bit rushed and too fast-paced, leaving gaps in the plot which can get me pulling my hair out with frustration! It's because stories like this have so much potential, but things are not often perfect the first few tries. Ideas you hold seem to be much bigger than what's on the game screen.
I'm a bit slow in the mind, but I'm still not too up to date with what the whole doll maker thing means in this world. Do doll maker's have a special status in society or are they just ordinary people too? What do dolls mean to ordinary people? It's things such as that which I think add to the storytelling. "

Yes I definitely struggle with my pacing in stories. I kept worrying that RMC was too fast paced for what I had going on in my head. I tried to pack too many ideas into a game that it ended up being super rushed. I'm trying to fix that though! So I hope by the next games, it'll be a lot more tolerable.
And as for doll makers and how they are in society... That's actually something I wanted to explore in the 3rd and final game of this series :> I hope it'll all make sense by then.
