The peculiarity here is that there are tons of (female-targeted) otome games available nowadays, especially for Android / iOS, but not every female player is into that type of VN. (I personally find them amusing, especially in comparing them to, for example, male-targeted eroge VNs.)


i know but i bet there are some female players who is interest in VN....those are the ones i am targeting

I'm bias for Yuri or Shoujo-ai VNs. So I'm quite glad that SonoHana and Flowers will be localized this year, I can finally play them in English lol. Just not incest yuri...

Of course - Yuri/Shoujo-ai
Female lead
Decent graphics
Mystery
Good Love Story or any Good Story
Let's just say I like fluffiness sometimes.

Memories Off Sorekara & Final Approach 2 was something I played & really liked it. (PSP era)

I think they would so they can relate to them. I don't really know what's an ideal female lead though...

Just stick with pretty boys and plot, and the VN will do well among women.


Have you played Dramatical Murder? It would be right up your alley.

Yes, please. Also, this order for putting together a game makes sense to and would flow naturally for me (though you may have different needs):

-Decide on a genre (comedy, horror, mystery, etc.)
-Decide on a setting (country, urban/rural/suburbs, time period, etc.)
-Determine the core premise around which your plot will revolve (this is one of the hardest parts)
-Establish a main protagonist to fulfill whatever goal your premise entails
-Establish supporting characters to help the protagonist along the way
-Send your protagonist on his or her journey

For example, let's fill everything in with information about the Girl Friends manga (I'd like to see more yuri with female leads written with a female player in mind). That would be formatted as follows:

Genre: Yuri, Slice of Life

Setting: Urban, Japan

Premise: A shy, quiet schoolgirl is brought into a popular classmate's circle of friends. Over time she develops feelings for her new friend.

Main Protagonists: Bookish, shy, and having trouble dealing with her newfound feelings (Mari). Personable, ditzy, socially sharp (Akko).

Supporting Cast: Someone with a lot of relationship experience (Satoko), someone energetic and outgoing (Tamami), someone blunt and straightforward in calling things as she sees them (Tagu)

Send On Journey: Write scenarios which a lesbian discovering her sexual orientation at a young age would be able to relate to

Just um...hmmm...a VN very popular among the ladies that it led to an anime adaption. (Anybody that played the VN knows it's so much better than the anime though).

I might be in the minority here, but I actually like some of the VNs normally directed at boys. I enjoy pervy humor like that.

That being said, I would really like to see VNs that incorporate the males more, because I am a girl after all. Cute girls are nice, but I'd like some more VNs focused on sexy guys too.

Also, more serious VNs with awesome storylines would be cool. Kind of like Kara no Shoujo as an example.

Well certainly in general, but in this case the amount of censoring was...particularly tragic.

The VN had much better material for, uh, scientific purposes!

My idea of Fluffiness might be the cheesy moments/romantic moments... It's the part where butterflies in your stomach flies.. lol
