Hi AwesomeNinjaXD! The requests were closed for a longer time, but now, they’re re-opened. What backgrounds can I help you with? Let me know! -Rachel

Hi KelonTheMelon! Thank you so much for your message! I’m very sorry about the late response, I get tons of requests and comments and must have missed your message. :( I’ll start working on the police station pack right away. Regarding the outdoor shots of the police station, which season would you prefer? -Rachel

Hi Emanzi! Thank you so much for your message, and your kind words! ^-^ I’m glad that the factory backgrounds were useful, and congratulations on your game! I’ve added it to the collection showcased on my profile. Regarding Mars Civilization, got it! I started working on this pack and hope to get it ready in the first week of October. One more question: would you prefer the buildings to be more monumentalist / totalitarian (large stone structures) or more modern / sci-fi (glass, bulbuous structures etc.)? Also, do you need some vegetation or prefer a purely arid landscape? Thank you! -Rachel

Hi SailingOcelot! Thank you so much for your kind words! And sure, I’ve just added three different versions of the next button to the download section, you should be able to download them for free. Have a great week! -Rachel

Thank you! ^-^ -Rachel

It looks great! I love the character design!

Your games look really entertaining! ^-^

Hi! Thank you for your kind words! I’ve generated these with an AI software and later tweaked them a little with my usual graphical programs. Earlier, I used photos, yes. But now, not anymore, as photos work mostly for contemporary, realistic backgrounds, and I’d like to experiment with various settings. :) -Rachel

Hi Destini Islands, Thank you for your message! I’ll take a look at those packs, if they can be brightened up without losing image quality, and see what can be done. You gave me a new idea though, and I hope to upload some new packs inspired by the solarpunk, soon! -Rachel

Hi SailingOcelot, I’m not sure if I understood your question? Did you unpack the RAR archive? If no, you need to unpack it. Please check the instructions on my profile (rachelchen.itch.io). If yes, here’s the official tutorial which shows how to import JPG and PNG images into TyranoBuilder and make backgrounds change: https://www.nyu-media.com/4-changing-the-background/ I hope this helps! -Rachel

Hi! Thank you so much for your comment, and your kind words! ^-^ I’m glad to read that these backgrounds were useful for you. Also, congratulations on completing your visual novel! I’ve just checked it out, and added it to the collection showcased on my profile. -Rachel

Hi, thank you so much for your question! Sure, you can use them in your live-streaming videos. Basically, if you are using them as part of some bigger creative project, and to that make some sort of new composition for it (e.g. by adding video elements, or using them to make your own panels, banners, video overlays, etc.), you’re using them correctly. Overall, as long as these backgrounds aren’t displayed just as they are (so people could pause the video, and screenshot them), most video uses are ok. If you have any additional questions, just ask me, or check the terms of service on my main profile. Have a great day! -Rachel

Hi Debra, Thank you so much for your kind words! Unfortunately, I’m not on Discord. What would you like to talk about though? Please let me know! -Rachel

Hi Korytoombs, Thank you for your message! I don’t have a commission system set in place. I was asked about a project with exclusive rights once, but then the person changed their mind so that didn’t really work out. I plan to set some system with clearly defined prices, however, that’s more of a future plan. I’m going on a hiatus now, I’m moving out to start a new job, etc. Regarding background prices you’ve mentioned, they’re crazy expensive. Not even extended licenses from professional stock galleries cost this much! Keep looking for options, perhaps, some freelancer who’s just starting out, can help you get them done at a cheaper price. -Rachel

Hi SailingOcelot, Thank you for your message! And sorry for the late response, work matters kept me quite busy. I hope to post some new GUI packs by the end of this week, among them, the one you’ve requested.

As for Photoshop versions with editable elements, it unfortunately won’t be possible. :( First, I don’t even have Photoshop, and second, licences. I can use vectors commercially only if they make part of some larger final composition (in this case, an original game button), but can’t resell them as stand-alones.

Still, I’ll remember to add blank buttons without captions. I’ll also consider creating extra elements that can be combined together for decoration purposes, etc. Thank you for the suggestion! ^-^

Have a great Sunday! -Rachel

Hi, thank you so much for letting me know! I’ve already approved my participation. -Rachel

Hi, Thank you so much for inviting me to this jam! ^-^ I’ve submitted a couple of packs, will confirm their participation soon. Have a great weekend! -Rachel

Hi Anwynn! I finally made these backgrounds, sorry it took so long. I’ve added them to the original Picturesque Seaside Town Pack, so you can download them here: https://rachelchen.itch.io/picturesque-seaside-town-pack-14-visual-novel-backgrounds, the file is “RC_PicturesqueSeasideTown(OldVersion-Nights).rar” ; I chose not to add them to any new pack because, I feel that the originals are very old, and not that good. So, you’re getting the night versions of these, for free! Regarding the night versions of the revamped backgrounds, I started working on them, but they’re quite time consuming, and I didn’t want to keep you waiting more, if you only need the old ones. In any case, I’ll probably add them some day. Take care! -Rachel

Hi Sebastian! No worries, I’m not a native English speaker, either! Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m happy you found these backgrounds useful. ^-^ Good luck with your projects! -Rachel

Thank you! ^-^

Hi Anwynn! I have a question about the night versions of the Picturesque Seaside Town. Will you need the night versions for the old backgrounds, or for the revamped ones? Please let me know! -Rachel

Hi, thank you so much for your kind words! ^-^ I’m happy to read that you like these assets! And sure, I can make more castle backgrounds, no problem! Just let me know what is it exactly that you’re looking for, and I’ll do my best to create it. Have a great Sunday! -Rachel

Welcome! ^-^

Hi Sailing Ocelot! Thank you so much for your kind words, and for all the purchases, as well! ^-^ I’m glad you like these assets. All GUI elements are PNGs, so the text on them isn’t editable, unfortunately. However, I’ll keep in mind to add text-free versions of all buttons to all future packs, and add links to fonts used, as well. I’ll also try to make a new GUI pack that fits your needs, if you have any special requirements regarding colors, or elements that you’d like to appear on it, please share! And sure, you can always edit backgrounds and GUI elements to make them fit better your visual novel games. Have a great Sunday! Rachel

Hi Anwynn, I’m sorry for the late response! Yes, sure! ^-^ I hope to take care of these soon. Have a great weekend! -Rachel

Hi 310, I’ve just re-uploaded both archives! You can unpack them with WinRar, or simply download the backgrounds as PNGs, I’ve uploaded all one by one. I hope this helps, have a great Sunday! Rachel

Hi 310, thank you for letting me know! I’m sorry you had this experience. I’ll re-upload the files in a moment and update you as soon as it’s done. Thank you for your patience! Rachel

Hi, thank you for asking about this. Unfortunately, my answer is a big NO, I can’t allow this type of use. My assets were created with the goal of becoming part of more complex creative projects (such as visual novels, digital comics, etc.), and not to be used as components for the creation of other people’s digital assets meant for further sale and distribution. This type of use not only shares parts of my work with third parties, but also serves competitive purposes. So no, I definitely can’t agree to it. Moreover, since the crypto market has its own rules regarding digital copies, I don’t agree for my assets (or any derivative works based on my assets) to be sold/traded/distributed there. You’ll have to look for another artist to help you with this request, I’m afraid. Sorry. Rachel

Hi Anwynn, I’m glad you like these! ^-^ Good luck with your game projects! Rachel

Hi Daza, thank you for your kind words, I’m glad you like these backgrounds! ^-^ And sure, you can use them in Interactive Text Adventure games, too. Have a great day! Rachel

Hi Anwynn, Thank you so much for these references! I searched around on Unsplash, and found some great photos for this pack, so, I hope to be able to make it soon! ^-^ Have a great day, Rachel

Hi Ertal, Thank you for your kind words, I’m glad you like these! ^-^ And, I’ll be looking forward to your new games! Have a great day, Rachel

Thank you so much! ^-^ I’m glad that you find these useful! Have a great day, Rachel

谢谢,很高兴你喜欢!^-^

Hi Anwynn, Thank you so much for your message! Providing photos when requesting backgrounds is optional. You can attach some as a reference, but it’s not necessary. What kind of beach backgrounds do you need? I don’t mind making more of these, the sea is one of my favorite themes! ^-^ Have a great week, Rachel

Please choose a background pack then, and I’ll be happy to send you the free download key! ^-^

Hi, no worries! Please feel free to request a refund! You can do so by contacting support: https://itch.io/support. If it’s not possible, just let me know and I’ll send you a free download key for a background pack of your choice. Thank you for always supporting my small shop here on itch.io! Merry Christmas! ^-^ Rachel

Hi Keruberus! I’m sorry for such a late response, I’ve been offline for quite a while. Thank you for your kind words! I remember, I made some backgrounds with restaurants and cafes, but they were scattered around different packs. I’m gathering the links for you:

Ice cream shop: https://rachelchen.itch.io/ice-cream-shop-mini-pack-4-visual-novel-backgrounds

Cafe, night bar restaurant, wedding restaurant: https://itch.io/queue/c/546327/rachel-chens-classical-visual-novel-backgrounds?game_id=558937

Cake display and cafe corner with seats: https://rachelchen.itch.io/exclusive-shopping-mall-pack-10-visual-novel-backgrounds

I hope to create new packs, though, and upload them soon. Thank you for your suggestion! Have a great weekend, Rachel
