Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

I've had it on one of my YouTube playlists for a while now. Especially when you compare it to that unbearably awful Nickelback theme song Tobey Spidey had in the first movie, like... I no longer see why Spider-Man needs to exist. YOU MEAN THIS UNBEARABLY AWFUL NICKLEBACK THEME SONG? Oh Chad Kroeger...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2015-4-1}

Glad to see this is still going. Not that there was ever any doubt. Spider-Gwen rules (I assume you saw the group that recorded a version of The Mary Janes' "Face it Tiger," right? Because that was BAD AS HELL. LISTEN TO THE FUZZY GUITARS AND BOW BEFORE THEM. Yes, bow. That alone makes her cooler th...

Re: Ask!

100312sidethumbs.jpg Pretty cuddly in it's own, squiggly way. :D What about dialogue, the interaction between the characters? I've recently experimented a little bit with writing a screenplay, and I must say, trying to think up something sensible for the characters to say is bloody difficult. So ba...

Huh, I'd almost forgotten about that bit of writing. Well, here's your answers:

Re: Ask!

Did any of the writers decide to go into writing officially? I think that every story line in the game shows a level of skill that was almost professional. In fact better than professional when compared to other video games. I write for a living, but it's all marketing material. I've picked up some...

Re: Iwanako: Mean Time to Breakdown {updated 2014-9-5}

On the real, Harry Potter was such a bundle of teenage angst in... was it Order of the Phoenix? I think it was--that I am pretty sure it soured me on the series permanently. What a shitty kid. I don' I just missed being the right age for the books or what, but I know I've never bothered to finish th...

Man, of all the things to get bored and randomly click on, I click on this. And then, after like half a year, I click on it again, because why not? I've got twenty minutes to kill, might as well skim through and see what's happened since the last time. Forgive me if I bring up "old stuff," I didn't ...

This post sums up the process pretty nicely, I think.

Re: Ask!

I was wondering if we could get an official dev statement on the nature of Emi and Misha's friendship? The subject was broached on page 226 of the thread, and the exchange went something like this: Like Aura said, there was originally going to be more hints that Emi and Misha had crossed paths on m...

1) Hell no. :shock: 2) HELL no. :shock: What he said. As for 3) Like Aura said, we had outlines for how everything was going to go before we even got Act I written, I think (or close to it). We took our sweet time putting out Act I specifically to avoid that sort of thing. If something big had come...

Re: Ask!

Do the devs ever read any of the wonderful fanfiction this game has inspired? And if so, what are your general thoughts when reading it? Occasionally, when the moon is full and for whatever reason I'm bored, I will randomly click around the fanfiction forum, consuming content without really thinkin...

Re: Ask!

Well, it's obvious that a lot of script and sprites were cut/replaced by newer versions but, was this the case for some CG? Or, by the time you got them drawn it was already clear which scenes were definitely gonna be on the script and which weren't? I might be wrong, but CGs were such a time-inten...

Re: Ask!

There were two side plots, one for Yuuko and one for the Nurse, that ultimately got cut. They're a bit different in that they weren't just random infobits, but actual story elements, but I'm sure they qualify. If you release what they were, I bet you'll launch a thousand fanfics. (Or at least more ...

Re: Ask!

As writers...does it make you Happy,Creeped out or Concerned the way people have bonded with the girls? Everyone has that one thing they latch on to now and again, and it becomes SUPER IMPORTANT and LIFE-CHANGING for a while, and there's absolutely no telling where it will come from, and there's al...

Re: Ask!

The fact that such a large percentage of people get Emi as their first heroine seems to hinge on following the nurse's orders getting them there. Was this intended? I.e., to make Emi a kind of baseline-setting "first girl"? Or was this tendency a surprise to the devs? I don't think it was intention...
