Well, I thought things over.
I’ve been working on action games and poking at roguelikes for years. Other artistic interests of mine have been neglected. I haven’t written a story in ages. I haven’t really drawn anything in a few years. I’ve been frustrated.
I’m going to challenge myself. I’m making a visual novel with Ren’Py.
I have a plot in mind, but I’m not giving it away. It’s a big break from my usual stuff, though.
It’ll hopefully be an interesting story, and hopefully I can still draw after not having drawn anything in so long. It’ll probably be good for me to step out of making mindlessly violent games.
I’m going to count this among my “I think I hate this but I’ve never tried it, so I’ll give it a go” experiences. I’ve really been under the impression that I wouldn’t enjoy this type of thing. For all I know, I may discover a fondness for manga. (My game will be drawn in a manga style, which is how Ren’Py games are usually drawn)
I may well have been wrong about myself for a long time. There might well be something I’ve been running from. I’m not sure just yet. Blah. I’ll leave it for this morning.
