Hurricane Paisley: The Visual Novel
« on: April 23, 2014, 01:03:20 pm »
Is it just me, or Kickstarter having more and more VNs lately? This is another F2P VN, and going to be made with RPG Maker. Not really interested, reminder set, gonna wait until further update.

I'm a little over these kickstarters. I said it in the last ones thread, but I really can't handle anymore things at once. I have a life somewhere that needs attention too!.

I almost feel bad for these guys. This market is just too saturated already. Wait 3 months and they might get more attention

Definitely one of the best trends of the year. Who'd have thought Visual Novels of all things would become such an 'in' thing all of a sudden.

//Gorchnik mode off

It didn't necessarily start it, but the mass (more than the norm) attention it received certainly helped.

It's not even a problem of over-saturalization on the VN front though because truth be told, Kickstarter itself is over-saturated with games in general.  It has been the highest funded category ever since KS inception and the problem is that  (and no offense to the creators) a good 3/4 projects are not worth your investment.  I mean really, go through and look at the games category.  Can you honestly tell me that you would back 75% of the projects in there if you had the cash available.  I certainly wouldn't.

Another thing is that Renpy is actually a free engine, and Visual Novels (IMO) are simpler to make compared to many other types of games.

I totally know what you mean, but it's dam annoying to see the games you like failing when the games you think look kinda dumb steaming ahead. If it wasn't for some random person talking about 'this game on kickstarter' he found, I wouldn't have ever found sunrider let alone found any other VNs on kickstarter.

Doesn't help that popular content makers which will remain unnamed keep playing said games and compounding the viewers want for such dumbness. We really shouldn't speak, VNs can be pretty dumb too. The type of humor is kinda different though. Scripted humor vs. random humor that games like goat sim generate. Funny because it's unexpected and your in the moment not becasue it was written in such a way as to tickle your funny bone. Some would say that the silly games form of humor is more genuine.

For me, the art was already kind of a turn-off when I skimmed over the project page. Still, read through the project description... And then stopped at this line:

Ye gods! Might as well stuck a "Warning, Mary Sue self-insert" sticker there instead.

I saw the page and I thought it looked fine.  And then I clicked on the video.

I'm still recovering from the shock.
