How to Create a Website Hosted Visual Novel with Unity.
Last year, while working on a larger Ren’Py Visual Novel, I had some serious writer’s block and I was feeling disheartened. The narrative wasn’t moving anywhere, yet I kept having all these unrelated ideas that didn’t really lend themselves to full length Visual Novels. I wanted to see if I could make a short, browser hosted Unity Visual Novel to help break my writer’s block and to finally finish something for once.
Don’t be suckered in by the beautiful visuals, the glowing reviews, the promise of a patient and meaningful story. Life is Strange is an ok game at first, but it’s a slow burn towards a raging dumpster fire of cringe-worthy sloppy writing. For those who have played the game and disagree – please hear me out. At first I didn’t want to admit I’d been conned either, but upon reflection I couldn’t get past the creeping feeling that something was terribly wrong. There is help for you, and coming to terms is the first step.
Well you did it Stonewall, you managed to publicly coerce me into watching something you recommended.
Let’s talk about Diplomacy.
No, not the brokering of international relations. I want to talk about Diplomacy: the board-game.
Board-games you say? I thought Stonepug was a video game company? Well get ready to expand your mind a bit, cause Stonewall and Pugs do have lives beyond crappy retro children’s videogames. Sometimes we play convoluted games for vindictive adults.
What is the best fighter game ever and why is it called Street Fighter 3rd Strike?
So recently I wrote a post about games that make me a bit hyper competitive. Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike is one of those games. This is hands down my favorite game in the Street Fighter franchise, and, I can say with complete objectivity, the best fighter game ever made in the history of mankind.
I don’t consider myself an overly competitive person. I like to take the high road and congratulate my opponent upon defeat, like a true gentleman and scholar. Ask anybody, Pugs is a paragon of sportmanship.
