Hey everyone. It's been a long time since my last journal, in which I talked about the game I was working on, a Visual Novel.
Recently I've been experimenting with RPG Maker VX Ace Lite, which is a free engine for making retro style JRPG's. The thought occurred to me that story I wrote up might be better suited as an Roleplay Game rather then a VN. Right now though, I feel like if I switched over to making this an RPG it's going to take longer to make it then it would be if I stuck to a VN. A VN would take a lot less work, but I also really like the idea of the story as an RPG. So I'm kinda torn between those two.
Working with the engine, I do feel like I'm making a lot more progress with what I want to do over if I just focused purely on writing. At the same time, it's a whole new discipline to learn, and right after I just started to scratch the surface of using Ren'Py.
What do you guys think? Should my game be an RPG or a VN?
