I’ve gotten to the point in writing in my VN where I can start safely planning the layouts of my CGs, especially for fetish scenes. However, I’ve run into something I’d like some opinions on (I’m running a twitter poll on this at the same time, but thought I’d ask you guys too).
The player character is treated as a sort of self insert like many romance VNs tend to do, with the narration referring to “I” and the player able to choose their gender and name. But for certain CG scenes, it would be better to be able to show the player character despite them not being the subject of the scene. For example, the player character feeding another character. I had originally planned to just show the player character’s hands but in some close proximity scenes I think it would be distracting or just not feasible. So when you play a VN and your character must show up in a CG, how to you prefer them when you can’t customize them at all? Fully designed but faceless like an ecchi VN protagonist? Completely greyed out so you can fully use your imagination? Or something else?
- Faceless Protag
- Featureless Protag
- I’ll reply with another suggestion
Examples of both Faceless and Featureless, plus the character from my VN for comparison to show how they look side by side.
