Does anyone here happen to own FFXV? I want to get a few workshop mods that turn the party into girls and use them on a pirated version, but http://steamworkshop.download/ doesn't work and SteamCMD fails probably because I don't own the game.
>>
Say, most if not all harem VNs (be it yuri, otome, or bishoujo) always have an LI that is the true roure, or is considered best by the majority. Pretty sure this is because the writer has their own bias and thus unconsciously underdeveloping other routes. What do you think about a project with multiple writers who agreed on an MC, but they each will create an LI that fits their own bias? Have anyone tried this before and does it work?
>>
>>2707452
It doesn't work. Inconsistency, character changes when the writer changes and so on. It's eroge way to do it, and everyone knows you can't really expect anything with many writers.
>>
>>2707452
Katawa Shoujo comes to mind as something that had a different writer for each route. It's not too uncommon for a single VN to have multiple writers in the professional world either (typically having one lead writer and several secondary ones who may help with specific kinds of scenes or even take on a route) since the work of writing a long 20+ hour VN could otherwise take years to finish with the pace some of the people in the industry are known to work.

Of course, when you have multiple writers, you need a good editor, lead writer, and communication to ensure consistency, which is why it can be unnoticeable in professional work but be pretty jarring in doujins (including aforementioned Katawa Shoujo).

>>2707462
The non-romance bits in each route can be written by one person to ensure consistency. The other writers only need to concentrate on developing the LIs and the overall tone of the route. The romance themselves are expected to be different because we all act differently depending on who it is we interact with (e.g. tsundere with one but at ease with another), so that way would feel more organic. I also want the routes to have different feels, such as cheerful, or calm and sombre, or slightly creepy.

Of course as said, the writers agree on the general traits of the MC so nothing will stray too far off mark. There's also the option to make MC a blank slate self-insert, which make the "OOC" issue non-existent.

>>2707467
I remembered KS right after posting. I haven't played it myself though, so no clue how jarring the inconsistency issue was.

There's also the art dilemma. 95% of the time, players already decide best girl just by looking at the pictures. I'm also guilty of this. It's boring if you don't offer a wide variety of character designs (think all the generic EVNs with a bunch of long straight hair big breasts same-face girls with different hair colours). But it's rather apparent who the hottest is if you do offer a variety of designs (almost always the long straight hair big breasted girl).
>>
>>2707481
>I remembered KS right after posting. I haven't played it myself though, so no clue how jarring the inconsistency issue was.

I gave it a shot back when it came out and it wasn't that bad, partially because most of the girls only really interact with one other girl in any real capacity during their route. The bigger problem was the fact that each girl's sprites seemed to have been done by a different artist, though the slight differences in the writers' styles did become noticeable in some places.
>>
>>2707481
>There's also the art dilemma. 95% of the time, players already decide best girl just by looking at the pictures.
And that's absolutely not a problem. Since when a player can't have preferences in character design or even find one route better than other? Don't be a Sawyerist, poll results have nothing to do with main/true routes.

That's not the point. I want to create a game where players are equally excited for every route, and that can't be achieved if they already chose the hottest of the bunch at first sight and have little interest to even try other routes.

Make everyone ugly then. Write every route to end in exactly the same way. Or stop being fucking stupid.

>>2707744
That's the plan. But speaking from personal experience, there had only been 3 franchises where I'd gladly go for different girls with no regret: Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku, Akaiito, Flowers. And what I noticed is that they all have equally attractive designs for each character. Those are games where I couldn't decide who to shoot for first just by looking at promotional arts.

Shit goes down and then it ends. And after that they throw everything chuuni and the kitchen sink in what is basically a Kung Pow II: Tongue of Fury trailer. Honestly, I believe it's more of a joke than a promise of continuing the story.

Actual pilots sometimes have to wear thermal resistant suit to protect themselves from the heat.

I do wonder why these nitpicking pseudo-realism complaints only surface when the games are perceived as SJW. Nobody says a thing when female characters wear sexy and nonfunctional armours despite everything else in the same game was normal, or when male characters started using hypnotism potions and witchcraft in a game that's advertised as "historically realistic by excluding women and blacks." At least try to be a little more subtle with your double standards.

Natasha Kerensky went into her Mech dressed in a top and hotpants and she was THE Mechwarrior of the time. 'Actual pilots' doesn't really count in a setting with it's own rules and tech.
After how they got Shadowrun down I don't understand why they didn't with Battletech, and Cyberpunk also shows that you can do 80s inspired future tech.

I heard Battletech had performance issues. So it's a pretty moot point if the game is SJW or not.
I will also add, /v/ tends to overexaggerate everything, so even if the game does has SJW elements in it, it's minor and insignificant and doesn't have an impact on the game.

>>
>>2708275
Most of the "action" was either strongly implied or not described in detail

this sort of game isn't exactly a good fit for sex since the storytelling is limited to getting a paragraph of lore or descriptions

But like, the actual gameplay can involve violent impregnations, which might just hint at what I'm talking about
>>
>>2708279
>wtf is tasteful rape
1) features both emotional and physical attraction, 2) no justification/blame-avoidance bullshit ("it's not my/your fault").

There are some retards who manage to ruin rape by making it pure violence fetish and no romance to be found, or do those mental gymnastics to blame the victim.

No, it's you who don't. I'm talking about the rapist's attraction to the victim. Don't give a shit whether the victim feels the same (FYI many victims do feel attracted to their rapists before being raped, and spousal rape is a thing).

There's a distinctive type of rape in hentai that features no such attraction. The rapist is simply in it to inflict pain and humiliation, rather than the typical "I love for you so much I must have your body against your will!" kind.

>>2708287

Not any of those anons, but there's no need to be so rude, rapefag. I understand what you are talking about, but for many people that's what all rape is, a violence fetish and the rapist's intentions don't change the fact that the victim is getting hurt.

I also feel that you are not really talking about yuri here, are you? Because for what I know, usually rape in yuri manga at least always have the characters being attracted to their victims, same with VNs if I'm not wrong.

I think that anon is full of shit because that doesn't apply to any of Razzart's games that have a selectable gender MC.

>Wolf Tails has sex scenes for both genders

Seconding Silverworld. Interesting being able to select your character's country of origin; it makes being able to picture them a lot easier. I ended up making a hun who I envisioned as a tiny sour-faced horseback sharpshooter, and ended up hooking her up with the gestalt androids, very satisfying. The bee woman might've been nice too but I was already committed to the androids by then.

I really dig the pulp sci-fi radio drama serial adventure kind of setting, mixed with the weird, cosmic, unknowable otherworldly beings. Also the supporting cast is nice. I didn't expect to like the merchant guy as much as I did.

I'd consider that a good thing. Having a decently long 3 part series that's actually planned out properly instead of being an eternally meandering series that just fades out at some point is nice.

I think I have found the first video game to have a lesbian protagonist. Ecstatica, 1994.

Theres somesuper obscure early example from the80s iirc that no one cares about. OTOH ecstatica is just a case of offering a female pcoption andnot bothering to change the plot, not an intentional lesbian
>>
>>2709074
the VNDB yuri list starts with 'Slope' in 1990 but its tricky tagging the early games as yuri-only because so few have played them to verify
>>
>>2709118
Hey, in the early days that was best we could hope for. When they DID take the female protagonist into account in games they change the LIs into men. A good example of this is Fable 3 and Fallout 4.
>>
>>2709123
There is a huge number of completely untagged games as well, especially but not exclusively from early 90s and late 80s.

>>2709135
Yeah man. Those ancient games Fallout 4 and Fable 3

>>
>>2709139
The fact that the game is the same for a male and female MC doesn't mean the devs didn't intend for the FeMC to be a lesbian. A FeMC option didn't spontaneously appear in the game code one day, the devs had to make the decision to implement it with full knowledge of the lesbian content it would entail.

And, in Ecstatica's case, the FemPC is fully voiced. So it's not like they did a simple cosmetic change.

He's a horrible person, too. Completely shady, deletes any negative feedback on the Steam forums and Discord, funds his own projects on Kickstarter to make them seem popular, changed his name from AJ Tilley when they were getting too much flak for having endless projects on 10+ Kickstarter accounts, pretended he stepped down as CEO of Aj Tilley and that Dharker was run by a new person for a while, changed a yuri game into some porno set so he could sell the CG as trading cards in a Kickstarter, etc.

It amazes me how much hate Winged Cloud gets for some minor shit when Dharker is pure garbage and gets no hate at all.

>>2709559
Dharker got more hate here (unless I mixed him up with another dev who also turned a supposedly yurige into hetshit) than WC. I remember a dev who got so butthurt that /u/ shit on him that he attempted to redirect the hatred towards WC, yet none on /u/ took the bait and told him off. He then persistently trolled the game threads, constantly accussing people of treating him unfairly while liking WC.

>>
>>2709613
D/a. I'm not familiar with the dev scene, how popular is WC (let's say compared to Hanako)? And are their yuri games sell just as well as their het games?

I've never bought WC stuff but have watched a couple LPs. The writing is shallow as heck and the plot is always unsatisfying, but I appreciate that it's pure yuri with alive and happy lesbians. It's amazing how relaxing to not have to worry about het past, het rape, sudden het, bisluts, dead lesbians, gratuitious angst, or subconscious homophobic stuff.

Most of past AssCreeds' issues weren't that they had bad ports: all releases were varying level of fucked. The consoles even had it a bit worse in some cases in that the games would run at awfully inconsistent framerates while at least some PCs could run them smoothly.

Even if they make $10k/month, it's still a small salary when you split it between the artist, writer, programmer, musician, designer, etc. Barely enough for a studio to stay afloat. Plus they seem to be a regular waifufag-catering group with occasional pure yuri projects, I don't see why anyone here would get butthurt over them.

It seems a known developer is attempting to make a sort of spiritual sequel to Vampire Masquerade Bloodlines. I love VTMB. While it's going to be awhile before a proper triple AAA company will create that full-fledged sequel, this new game in the meantime seems like it's going to be fun!

the problem is you want your audience to play the same way: everyone tries every route. You can't control people, anon.

Freaks like me will play every route, but every other guy or gal will play only one route and call it a day. That's just the nature of people.

Just have variety and you'll hit a bigger number of people who will go "Oh hey, I wanna date that character"

Yet another unproductive comment. Obviously everybody has their own habit, but can't you focus on brainstorming a way to MANIPULATE those habits? It's like commenting "everybody is different, not everyone will like the same product" in a strategic meeting of creating a product that most people will want to use. You're being unhelpful and missing the point, and will definitely get fired.

In other words, think. What's the most common reasons somebody only play 1 route? What direct and indirect measures can we take to counteract each of those reasons? Are those measures prohibitively expensive? Can they all be used at once or must we decide on a direction to avoid diluting the content? What are the success and failure stories that we can learn from?

>>
>>2709969
The best (and perhaps only) way to ensure most people play all the routes is to have a plot that requires all routes to truly get the complete picture of. Such games also typically have a "true route" unlocked by completing all the other ones, typically either not associated with any particular heroine as it is driven to complete the plot or being the harem route (either explicitly or with an implied harem end).
>>
>>2709997
Yeah, I also think that's the most common solution and the one that typically get me to play all the routes. The promise of romance alone isn't enough, there must be unexplained mystery.
>>
>>2709989
That's cute, must be a struggling artist. I think she's severely under-selling herself, as these could easily be priced at $10-12. She just needs an English editor first.

>2 yuri

>>

Of course. Plot-driven games and !dating games! are different genres consumed differently.
One focused around plot may treat the romance as coincidental to the events and have routes for characters the player might even dislike upon their introduction--it doesn't matter whether you're into them or not, you want to see what they're bringing to the table that is the greater story.
On the other hand, a dating game lives and dies by the variety offered, where each heroine has to appeal to someone--preferably to a person who might not be interested in the other ones.

Thus, if you have a game about romancing characters, people are going to play the route(s) for the characters they want to romance--or if you want to put more distance between the player and the PC, whichever character they think would be the best match(es) with the protagonist. Sure, if it's well enough written, some people may be interested enough to give the other ones a shot, but that's not really even the point in most games like that.

A dating game in which you try to get a person to go for all of the option is pointless in that it's not really the point of the genre. The only way to get everyone to go for all of the characters is to have all of them fill the same niche and so have the game appeal exclusively to people into that niche.
>>
>>2709846
At least I can be a nosferatu in real life.
>>
>>2710046
Disagree. If what you said were true, people would have flocked to VNs where there's only a predetermined LI. But the truth is that both guys and girls PREFER when there's a choice, and the market reflected that desire. They avoid games where there's no choice, even if the single LI looks very hot and sounds like the type they'd go for had it been a regular multi-route game.

Another clue that proved your belief wrong is the fact that most of the time, the fandom has a clear dominant preference for one LI over the others. 80-90% will unanimously agree on the best girl/guy for MC, whereas the rest are split among everyone else. Such a small percentage of hipster players doesn't justify the cost that the dev had to spend to create all these extra routes, but they still do it for a reason. And that reason is NOT to draw in hipster players.

What do those two clues mean? It means that different LIs are not primarily meant to cater to different niche interests. No, their primary function is to provide variety - a sense of choice, and thus provide the interactice element as opposed to passive kinetic novel. Catering to hipster players is just secondary.

I've talked with other indie devs on lemmasoft, and let me tell you the most common story: Everybody is initially inspired to create a game where their MC can date multiple people and outlined all the routes. But by the time they've written down the first draft, they inevitably developed a sense of who should be the main LI, and spent all their effort on him/her route, and got burnt out for everyone else. Some managed to half-heartedly write other routes to completely the game, some switched to a small 1-route game, some hired someonr else to write the rest.
Listening to that story for the umpteenth time, I can't help but think the only way to write a dating sim with truly equal routes is to have multiple writers who create their own ideal heroine.
>>
>>2710057
>the only way to write a dating sim with truly equal routes is to have multiple writers who create their own ideal heroine
Eh, what? Most jap games only have one writer and they're got multiple routes.
The problem with english speaking indie devs is that they don't have the budget/time for bigger games. Art costs quite a lot when you're on a shoestring budget.
>>
>>2710057
I'm sorry, but there's only really one reason for multiple heroines: Ero. And that's it. We are at a point, where even minor characters get random ero and/or a sub-route, because some apparently get angry, if not every girl in the game has lewd content. It's a horrible situation, but alas. It is what it is. Even the few writers hating this trend do still include ero filled mini routes for the other characters. Because they have to.

The sample size of games without ero is just a little too low, to really know what's going on there. (in Japan) But well, there's also some truth to the whole "first appeal" thing. Have plenty of pretty girls on a cover, hopefully one appeals. That's a general rule. It's very very hard to sell a story. It's much easier to sell well designed characters. So everyone tries. Games like "dear my abyss" will simply always have a hard time. It looks like nothing based on the cover. Yet it is really good and also recommended for /u/, if you are fine that it's not primarily about romance. Or even secondarily.

Who even wants that? Loli sells but no one gives a shit about shota except for some weirdos.

At this point, shota is probably a larger niche among video game nerds than yuri.
>>
>>2710195
The only possible consolation is if they have multiple routes/endings we can take for yuri. If not and hetshit is endgame then the dev can fuck right off out of /u/ and existence.

>>
>>2710324
Yeah, its just the supposed in-game reference that made me assume they at least knew of /u/.
>>
>>2710329
Of course they knew about /u/ and 4chan in general, but unlike, say, AA dev, they never were an active participant of any thread on /u/.
>>
>>2710332
I see. Thanks for the info. I dont frequent the gaming thread much.

Still miffed they decided to "abandon" the yuri but we'll see I suppose.

>I've talked with other indie devs on lemmasoft, and let me tell you the most common stor
sounds like you've been talking to newbies making their first games who didn't realise that it would actually be work? Because yeah, people in that situation often bite off more than they can chew. hiring a bunch of other equally newbie writers to do eac route is not likely to lead to quality though.
>>
>>2710069
>I'm sorry, but there's only really one reason for multiple heroines: Ero. And that's it.
Many non-ero games with multiple routes would disagree with you.
>>
>>2710462
Many? Compared to the ero variants, there's maybe 5% of that in Japan. MAYBE. Don't look at the western market. They often copy stuff blindly from there without thinking and adapt it to what "fits" here. Although the no ero games get less as well.

The all ages games that have multiple routes are so little, that it's hard to say way that's the case. Standard in the medium? Actually useful for once? Console otome games are once again a completely different beast I haven't counted into this. It may just be the target group. Vns aimed at girls may be sold more often to the ~14 year old audience, while that's where the guys don't really get that stuff. Otherwise there'd be more released directly for that target audience. More than like 1-2 games a year.
>>
When you're making indie games if you try to appeal to what sells instead of making something you think is good you're going to create a shitty pandering mess that will fail miserably 99% of the time.
>>
>>2710477
Oh, I know it's a lot fewer, but you said ONLY one reason and I'm a pedant.

There often is a difficult bind for authors when they've committed themselves to X routes but not every character really leaps out as having the same story potential as the others, and it becomes awkward trying to make each route "equal" for fairness purposes. If there isn't at least more than one route with really strong potential, though, your plot design skills are terrible to begin with.

Fairness is especially a problem in the kind of game that tries to appeal to too many audiences in the first place. If it's an all-yuri game and there's six routes, it's kind of more okay to give in and accept that one route is just a side route. If you were trying to do "one GxB, one BxB, one GxG, one BxG" type things, and one of those options turned out extremely half-baked, that audience segment is ticked.
>>
>>2710482
OTOH if you try to make what you think is good with no regard for anyone else, you often end up with a game no one wants to play. Balance in all things.

(Suggested compromise: Come up with an idea you think is awesome, then bounce it around a few people to see if you get any bites. If they seem only politely interested, double-check with yourself on just how awesome you think this idea is and how much you can afford to be wrong.)
>>
>>2710497
I like the approach Akai Ito and Aoishiro took. You're encouraged to play each route because you learn more about an overarching plot with each route you complete. Hakuai does this to an extent.

Other VN's have taken this approach, some leaving things unexplained unless you go down some bad end routes, but those aren't yuri. I like that.

That's disappointing. I guess it might be unreasonable to expect them to go yuri again, since the MC gender was kinda picked at the last minute before, anyway. It was a wonder we even got what we got, and lord knows they took it on the chin for even doing that much. And they seem like good guys, I really can't hold it against them. They just want to make cyberpunk bartending. The lesbians were only ever a cherry on top in the first place.

That said, I don't think I want it. I might at least wait to see reactions when it releases first.

Like other anon said, I'm just glad we got VA-11 Hall-A. And most importantly, I'm glad they brought all this out up front instead of letting it be an unpleasant surprise for people who were expecting otherwise. So don't get your hopes up, guys. If you're into cyberpunk stuff and you don't mind, I'm sure it'll be great, but don't bet on it being lesbian unless otherwise confirmed. And don't be a bunch of salty bitches about it either, that doesn't incentivize anyone to pander to us.
>>
>>2710509
If there's one thing this board is good at it's being salty bitches though
>>
>>2710509
We can also take comfort in fact there are plenty of other games with /u/ content available, or at least will be available soon. Like AC Odyssey.
Though there is still lots of room for improvement and the occasional hiccup like this, I think we can all mostly agree that when it comes to /u/ in video games, things are alot better than they were in the past and they are definitely improving even further.

The first one had quite a few lesbians in it and the only relationship of note that Jill had was with a girl, guys usually didn't amount to much with her, and she's currently crushing on her boss and in one ending goes on a vacation with her.
>>
>>2710640
I guess i just have a different understanding of what yuri means.
>>
You guys are ridiculous. Sukeban games was never a yuri focused developer. They wanted to tell stories with quirky PEOPLE, not lesbian only yuri. It makes complete sense that the sequel would be about another girl but with the struggle of a turbulent marriage and taking care of her kid. VA11 HALL-A had shout outs to /u/ and gay moments but thats because the story centered on Jill, a bi chick who has a crush on her boss and visited danger/u/ when she's bored. A new protagonist with a new lifestyle and responsibilities was expected.

VA11 HALL-A was yuri friendly, but it was obvious the developers are more interested in expanding the universe to be about all kinds of weirdos.
>>
>>2710645
Yeah I figured as much, and I can appreciate that they want to expand on the universe. Anime-esque cyberpunk stuff is really hard to come by.
>>
>>2710514
There's a reason other boards hate us.
>>
>>2710654
I'm convinced that we're small enough to be largely unnoticed.
>>
>>2710654
Which would make them a hypocrite. So, /u/ gets salty about stuff, and they get salty about /u/ being salty? How loser-like.
>>
>>2710654
Which board on 4chan isn't a salty bitch? Not to mention the saltiest and bitchiest boards are /pol/, /r9k/, /v/, /co/, /tv/, and /a/.

/u/ is by far still an imouto compared to their miserable lowlives.
>>
>>2710678
Eh, lesbian stuff has been appearing more and more in mainstream media. That there's grievances towards us makes sense in that regard.
Take The Last of Us 2 for example, that was about as in your face as it can get for some.
>>
>>2710654
Does it matter? Would they not hate us if we never bitched about anything? Does anyone even care?
>>
>>2710678
Not really, since crossboarding is a thing and for some reason there's more than a few people who do their best to give /u/ a bad name. Not only that but with lesbians becoming more prevalent in modern media the resident neckbeards and newfags are becoming more resentful, and /u/ is getting caught in the crossfire regardless.

From everything I'm hearing I'm looking forward to Assassin's Creed but I think we should know where our expectations should be. It's the first RPG in the series so I expect the choice and romance stuff to be very shallow and rough. best case for me is that they don't abandon this direction and refine everything as the series goes on. I would adore an east asian AC that let me play as a lesbian assassin as ahistoric as that may be.
>>
>>2710740
nope would happily play one if it was like a generic het eroge with all the different stereotype choices and the art was good

>>2710881
>I would adore an east asian AC that let me play as a lesbian assassin as ahistoric as that may be.
I would love that so much.
>>
>>2710881
People have been asking for an east asian AC since the beginning. I don't think it'll ever happen.
>>
>>2710888
I wonder if it will be possible to... 'run out' of distinct and recognisable time periods for the series. The series has had 10 main games in 11 years and we just got ancient egypt and ancient Greece. I'm guessing a Roman Empire setting would come first but I can't think of anything as big and exploitable as say Warring States China. That said I'm not even close to being a history buff so I have no idea.
>>
>>2710892
Soviet lesbians from the Cold War period fucking when.
>>
>>2710740
Not to the point of refusing to read/write/play it, no. I admit, I get more excited by something that isn't that.

And for people who are making one-couple stories there's no excuse for sticking with schoolgirls IMO. The main reason for yuri gravitating to girls schools is that it's the easy mode to explain why you have an available harem of desperate girls and every single one you see is probably willing to bend a little.

But if all you want to do is "younger, shyer girl falls for older, bossier girl who is a bitch to her until she opens up" you can write a secretary/boss story.
>>
>>2710892
I mean, history is a really big place, especially since the degree of separation between different cultures was so significant until relatively recently. You start adding in the possibility of having sequels featuring the same characters a la Ezio, and the series will run out of plot ideas and money long before it runs out of potential historical locales.

>mongolian dyke assassin who has to navigate the imperial court during the reign of kublai khan, taking advantage of being a woman to flirt with the harem, while trying not to fall in love with her chinese archenemy

Not really. They greatly lessened the frequency and shortened the length of the out of Animus segments and the plots in this segment barely exist unlike the first games which had their own separate cast but the segments are still there.

Hey, you said "currently a criminal". Many people have justifications for whatever they're doing which may seem totally reasonable to them and shocking to others.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people are okay with drug dealing because "it's not like they're forcing anyone to buy them" or something like that. Especially if they've only dealt with small-time vendors who don't routinely shoot people.
