Interview: Combin Ation
This time our interview features the cricle Combin Ation who ranked #1 in our bestseller list immediately after the release of the first work "Survivor Sarah"! It's a great pleasure to welcome the creator who produced this high-quality RPG in English to this special article.
We hope you enjoy the read!

Please introduce yourself to the DLsite.com users.

I was originally a fan of Japanese hentai game like many people. Especially attracted to RPG one. My first hentai RPG game is "violated heroine" which I think many people have played it. It is an open source RPG game developed by Japanese. I was shocked how good a hentai RPG game can be after playing it. Played some other hentai RPG games and learnt a lot then finally decided to created my own one (Survivor Sarah).

How long has your Circle been active?

I have registered this circle in January this year (2013). Original planned to release my first game on February but delayed to May.

How did you name your Circle, "Combin Ation"?

My circle name "Combin Ation" is simply come from the word "combination". Because I think I have never originally created something. I combine people's idea (about zombies, H-events), creations (2D graphics and 3D models) and program (RPG maker XP and its scripts) to create the game.

What kind of tool / software do you use to make your product?

For Survivor Sarah, I used RPG maker XP (Eng), Photoshop and the most important 3D tools for my artworks "Poser". I have been rendering with Poser for several years. I think it is the easiest 3D graphic program to use with. Go buy or download some 3D models then you can create a lot of great 3D images of your own. Also, I really can't draw honestly. So, I need it badly.

When you are working on your product, what type of things do you put your most thoughts into?

When I decided to create a RPG game about zombies, I keeping thinking about what kind of H-events would happen in such situation and world. I spent most time in thinking suitable events for the game. I always think good and reasonable H-events are more important than other things (such as combat, interface) for a hentai RPG game. I think logic and justified H-events can draw people into the game.

Is there any productions or creators you like or respect?

Yea, I really like Scale Garden, the creator of the Japanese hentai game "Hi to Tetsu no Bless". It is no doubt my favorite hentai RPG game. I think his drawing is really great and I like his style. He is able to draw the most beautiful female anime character in the world! Also, there are so many details in his game that I can never hope to create such things. I am still waiting for his newest game to come out!

Do you have any hobby you are into right now?

Anime (attack on titan), games (league of legends), movies (Ironman 3).....etc.

Users of DLsite.com are present around the world. Would you introduce your country and its appeal?

I would rather not to give too much information about my country, hehe. But I can only say both English and Japanese aren't my mother language.

How did you find about DLsite.com, and what motivated you to register your products with DLsite.com?

I found DLsite.com on some hentai game forum. I think it is the largest hentai game market out there in the world. The site has provided a great place and opportunity for single developer like me. If DLsite doesn't exist, I think a lot of great hentai game won't be created.

What kind of impression do you have toward Japan?

From my opinion, Japanese is one of the most creative countries in the world. I watch their animes, listen to their music. Everything is so original and they can still surprise you every year. Their seriousness to create things is one of the most valuable things in the world.

Would you like to take a work offer from Japan if there is an opportunity?

Having the experience of working in different countries is always great, especially a country you like.

Please let us know about your upcoming product(s) or your goal in the future.

I have plan on continue the story of Survivor Sarah. My next game should be Survivor Sarah 2 if it happens. You should be able to view the concept on my blog. I have ideas on other theme for creating hentai RPG game too. But I really want to finish the story of Survivor Sarah first.

Do you have any advice to those new creators who might be interested in producing works?

Creating hentai RPG game has become my hobby now. I found it is really fun to turn the story of your own into a game. If you are interested in making one too, you should come and join!

What message can you give to the DLsite.com users?

Support and feedback from users are always encouraging. Please don't hesitate to give us those if available.
