this felt so nice to read. i enjoyed the pacing and how you portrayed the awkwardness and insecurities.. it makes me happy to see and relate. thank you for creating this beautiful little story. ♥️
i had such a vague idea of what i was getting into when i first had this story on my hands and suddenly couple hours were gone! the religion and worship in the form of sexual power dynamics was such an entertaining read. very hot and very good.
my favorite part was the conversation in the basement, i felt like i wanted to just show the entire part to my girlfriend and be like "LOOK THIS IS MY JAM." it was so cute how that moment was presented, the vulnerability and confusion of sharing something like that.
the whole occult aspect of this seemed to appear to me just at the right time in my life. these topic have been interesting and relevant to me recently and especially because of that i enjoyed seeing the process A— went through in this story!
thank you for writing this. i thoroughly enjoyed it and came out of this sexy read with having learned some new things about myself too!! im so glad to be gay and trans when stories like these appear eheheh
funnily enough, i started writing this original concept before it all. yet as i was forced to take a break due to my hands the pandemic started later. i thought to myself before even starting the rewriting this project, that i will be curious to see if people can see those echoes of the solitude
you give your compliment so eloquently, thank you for sharing your thoughts and thank you for loving my story in the first place. it means the world to me to see positive reception after been on such a long hiatus!
thank you u_u it is true how you say it especially in the first paragraph. life has been hard, pandemic and my chronic pain and disability all at once has been rough. i think im recovering now. but i want to share some of it in my art
it makes me happy to see my story and the trauma connecting to other transfemmes and or sad bitches. cause that me
the specification is "queer relationships between women" this is a game jam built around the lesbian identity and women loving women, to tell stories about romantic and sexual interaction between them. as to make it more inclusive it has been broadened to include other variations that arent strictly lesbian in the standard sense; which is apparent in the further clarification "This includes: lesbian, bi, trans, non-binary, aro, ace, pan, any female-identified LGBTQIA characters. Trans masc and non-binary lesbians are also allowed to be the focus of any projects."
if you are only making a story that revolves around deep friendship it doesnt count as itself, but for example can count if it still describes the "queer female experience." ie someone in the story is gay and the romance aspect just isnt the main focus.
ultimately, the jam has been created to motivate people to make games regarding these minorities to create representation because there are not enough of these stories in the world. does your game contribute to that?
in the end, question why you want to include your game in the jam but if you think your game is yuri in the spirit enough that you would put for example the itch.io tags of lgbt and/or yuri on it then go for it and submit
thank you! ;D im adding more graphics to the game currently i dont know how many it will have but i do have quite a few added already :> ill def be making something similar in the future too! maybe with even more art if my wrists allow it ^^
i dont know. are you extracting the whole folder instead of just the exe? if yes maybe just try redownloading the whole thing im not sure as ive never run into this problem before! sorry! :x
renpy is a great and powerful FREE engine for making your own visual novels, it has all the basic stuff already built in so you dont need to code it all yourself, only thing you need to yourself is basically just the art and writing your story! its the most popular tool for making visual novels and if you want to see examples take a peak to the renpy tag here on itch.io
ive linked below the quickstart guide which has plenty of information on how to get started and goes through all the basics for making your first game! there is no need to read every single thing on the page but quickly glancing through and reading as much as you can helps you out so you know what renpy is capable of.
as you download the game it also comes with a inbuilt tutorial/example project called "the question" which you can play through and then open up the code and see for yourself how it was made.
i recommend just making a own project by copying and modifying all you need from the quickstart page and the example project. basically just change the sprites to your own assets and change the dialogue to your own story. its the easiest approach to making your own game and thats how i personally started on my first project!
if you need more help feel with anything, free to hop into the yurijam discord and ask for help. you can also contact me personally and i can do my best with helping you out! my discord is "a nadia#6949!"
i cant think of anything else than currently the adult content button is very hidden and considering how important it would be to not show adult content to people who dont want to see it, imo adding the options for the rating system on the main game edit page would be important.
