Hello there. I am your typical Informatics student from Indonesia. When I see Renpy from Pink Tea Games' Patreon, I am curious and find out about it on Wikipedia.

Python language, coincidentally have Python 3.6 with 32-bit Windows 7.

Good work for you and thank you for the contributions that enjoyed by many.

Hi, I'm a hobbyist digital illustrator doing lots of character sprites for practice. If you have any vaguest idea about your own visual novel project / want to see your own characters drawn, I'm more than happy to help! Also I'm regularly posting original character sheets anyone can use. Check them out if you are interested.
Best of luck on your projects everyone ;)

I'm beta testing Visual novel games for some points, so if you have a game you aren't sure is perfect, you could ask me for some help! :D You could check out the commission details on my profile. Note that I actually use Ren'py too ha

Hello, my name is HarukaNami and I am here to partner up with a BG artist now. I will recruit other talented people once the other things are planned and some arts are done. Sorry! I cannot offer money since I am broke, but you can gain experience and some add ons to your portfolio~

I found a sprite artist and now I'm looking for a BG artist. I have 4 different bedrooms and a few more BGs being thought of by myself.

Here is the information:

Genre: Sci-Fi, Friendship, Fiction, Angst, Tragedy, Mystery, Romance, Psychological(maybe). 

Choices to see stories: Zion, Ken, Karoline, Ashur.
Unlock Umbra’s route if all story routes are completed.

Summary: Lucia, the main character who lost her memory from a mysterious brutal murder. She woke up in a small headquarter meeting six people who lived in this headquarter as young executors. They kill prisoners who are in death penalties. Lucia will find out who the characters are, why do they kill? Why do they take this occupation? And what troubling past they have that lead them here? Guide Lucia and help gain each character’s trust or else... 

This is a long project, maybe 50,000 words or more.
This story will have sibling bonds, no incest relationship. 
Free game~
Three bad endings or more XD.
One true ending

Please give me a Gmail: or a PM in Lemmasoft: HarukaNami, I'm not active on this website. Thank you all!
