If you haven’t already played it, try our LD34 entry “My Best (Magical) Friend”, a very japanese visual novel about friendship and cool magic powers.

And since this is always fun, here’s some work-in-progress shots.

HOW TO MAKE A VISUAL NOVEL:

1

STEP 1: Write a bunch of stuff on pieces of paper.

 

2

STEP 2: Google docs because nobody else can read handwriting.

 

3

STEP 3: Plan out the whole story in MSPaint.

 

4

STEP 4: Write a little code.

 

5

STEP 5: Write some scripts. A lot of scripts. (This part took the longest!)

 

And voila, that’s how a visual novel was made!
Some screenshots of the final game:

Give it a shot, and hope you like it! Was very interesting to do something story-based (since I usually do action).
