As the title says, which do you think is easier to make. A visual novel or a text based game?
Why am I asking this? Well, to be honest I’m leaning towards the VN. I guess the shortcut version of using VN as opposed to Text based is charming. Let us say in a VN setting you make your MC go to a room, technically you as the writer are not required to elaborate about the room. It’s just that a freaking room. Elaboration regarding that said room is optional. On a Text based, you as the writer are required to make sure the reader knows the environment and etc. etc. etc.
I found some topics that talk about visual novels, but nothing about comparing it to a text based game.
Which do you think is easier to make a visual novel or a text based game? We have to take note of the pros and cons about the two forms. In this can I ask any of you why you choose the VN or Text based and why?
- Both are hard to make
- No opinion
- Text based game
- Visual novel
