Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

Oh, come on, she has a loving family. She is healthy and otherwise fine. She is far from being alone. I know of people who got into that sort of mindset and no matter what I or others tried to do, we couldn't convince them that there were good things to look forward to. THIS is why I didn't want Me...

Re: [1583] the heartbreak of other people's luck

I wonder if she knows what she is? Has she just popped her tails and ears out because she is too miserable to bother to maintain control or they just manifest because she's too miserable to be aware of them. Either way, it sucks to be her : ( (I wonder if there is someone who loves her, but who she...

Re: [TTDP 005] A Troubled Earth-Bunny Girl

Masamichi is sneakier than I gave him credit for. Probably from watching Meimi outsmart everyone while she was still a Magical Girl. To unpack that: Pretty obvious to me that he's showing her that her actions impact other people other than herself, and that those actions may end up hurting those pe...

I didn’t take Megumi seriously when she teased Piro about a threesome, either. It was pretty clear she was just messing with him because he looked so out of his element.

(Holy crap, that was well over two years ago...)
Woah, I'm impressed how much you guys remember after such a long time.

You're right, it's not actual racism. What I'm saying here is that the behaviors exhibited so far is similar to what we find in racism. Fred is basically giving us an essay on the pitfalls of human behavior in general through this particular strip. Discrimination and/or persecution of any kind base...

Re: [TTDP 0003] Sentencing Guidelines

And the message is that cute foxgirls are much harder to manage than Zilla monsters which you can just shoot.

And the guy to be pitied here is Masamichi, who would rather take on a Zilla, instead of dealing with this dangerously cute foxgirl.

It's just a men in black spoof.

About managing dangerous Zilla monsters, which sometimes destroy half of megatokyo and sometimes take the form of a deceptively cute Foxgirl.

So you would disagree with the idea to create files/char sheets of the main characters. Point taken. It was getting slightly weird, but maybe I misunderstood you.

Re: As a Kickstarter Backer, I have a question

This is directed @paarfi had to take a part-time job to help pay the medical bills, and that has left him less able to get things done on MT projects. The plan is still: 1) Get the comics flowing again at the rate promised to the Patreon supporters 2) Then get the backlog of orders from the MegaGea...

Just hire a visual novel studio or an artist + experienced visual novel creator

Honestly, it is clear that Fred simply has no time to create the visual novel. So why don't you just contact an experienced visual novel studio or simply hire a talented artist + experienced visual novel creator to do it? I'm sure 30000$ would be more than enough to turn the first chapter into an ac...

Re: VNsNow

I guess the first question is, does Fred know how he wants to end Megatokyo? That would make pathing easier, even if it's just Piro's path. You can do self contained episodes. You don't need the whole story. For example, the first episode could cover the part up to Piro & Largo ending up in the Meg...

So, from what I see, I suspect that Moeko is a "typical" teenage girl, who is severely love-starved since she is in coma and cannot experience a relationship or sex. The difference is, of course, she has "powers" and therefore is able to live a life by tampering with the world, which might or might ...
