Re: Visual Novel [renamed]

Make sure you stipulate explicitly in the contract that you have no intention of paying any of those invoices out of the startup capital or company revenues Why?

Re: Visual Novel [renamed]

That doesn't matter, which was the whole point of the mom-n-pop corner store analogy. So the facts and common practice doesn't matter; what matters is an analogy which doesn't apply here?

PAARFI. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE SLOW ANIMATION PART OF THIS. NO ONE CARES ABOUT WHETHER DIALOGUE IS IN SPEECH BUBBLES. NO ONE.
