monsutagamessent: I'm currently working on a Horror RPG Maker game and haven't played too many of them myself. I trust your name and thought I'd ask for a suggestion or two and maybe a push in the right direction. I've downloaded Yume Nikki and Mad Father but haven't gotten too far into either. Any other titles I should know of? -Yours Truly, Monsuta
Hello! Sorry for the late reply, I’m really busy these days!
After finishing these, you should get the hang of RPG horror and be able to find the elements that makes these games great so you can put these elements in your game!
And a side note, here are some tips from the blogger himself
Be original, no one wants a game that just looks like a carbon copy of other games
Play with the characters a bit!
The game shouldn’t be too full of cutscenes, they are playing a game, not watching a movie
Do not follow cliches and stereotypes too much, otherwise, your game will just be plain predictable
Evaluate your game when the demo is done, Did you really make it scary, cause there are some horror game devs who try to make the game spooky, but their game is actually just boring and dull in the final outcome
Don’t make the triggers (things you have to do to go further in the game) to hard nor to easy to figure out, otherwise, the game will be too hard and most people will give up or the game will be too easy and they will find it boring
When you’re making the story, make it “build” as the game progresses
Anonymous sent: You should definitively continue both Wadanohara and The Gray Garden. There will soon be a prequel and a sequel for The Gray Garden so maybe you should try to continue playing it! And there are some pretty stupid/funny scenes so you don't really know what you're missing. XD (sorry for the bad english maybe)
Its fine your english is good! And I am giving it another shot!
iswearthisismylasturlsent: Wadanohara is fucking great, just telling you. Its not horror, and the monsters aren't challenging. But the story is worth it. I promise. Also, arigatou for having such an awesome BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!! ><
Ok! I actually am starting to like this game, but, should I make the levels really high?
