Interview: Namida (March 2017)

Interview: Namida
This month our interview features the cricle Namida who creates big hit sleeping molestation simulation game "Night Attack on Little Sis!"!! We hope you enjoy the read!

1. Thank you so much for this interview! To start things off, could you please introduce yourself to the DLsite.com users?

Uhm… hello! Name's Rayn of circle Namida, an eroge developer and self-proclaimed panty-shinobi. ~(/:/)

2. How did you come up with your Circle's name "Namida"?

Ah let's see… Rayn derives from the word "rain" and it only seemed natural that the Japanese counterpart would be something like "namida" which means "tear". I just love rainy summer days and that atmosphere alone kinda describes my person.

3. What led to becoming a professional creator? Was there something that specifically triggered your desire to begin as a creator?

Professional sounds a bit too big ahah. But it is true that I'm putting my heart and soul into making games. I'm a gamer at heart with a big passion for eroge, I also like drawing and programming stuff and so I thought why not putting that to good use? But it wasn't so simple, I've spent a pretty long period of my life trying to find my way and while making games sounded like a cool idea, I was always put off by the people around me and my own low self-esteem. That's until I actually tried delving in the world of game-making and seeing how deep and charming that is!

4. Why did you select DLsite.com to market your product?

DLsite has been one of my favorite go-to places for many years now and getting to reach a Japanese as well as English audience is invaluable for me. So thank you DLsite!

5. Have you ever purchased any products from DLsite.com? If so, who is your favorite artist/creator and what are your favorite products?

Sure did! I have a long list of games I like such as Suzuka's Melody or Iris but if I have to choose a favorite I'd go with Erotical Night by circle e-ohkoku. I am grateful for what the creator has taught me.

6. Your information tells that you reside in Italy. Is DLsite.com well-known among the fans of Japanese pop-culture? Please tell us the awareness of DLsite.com in Italy.

It's a country with varied interests. I can't say it's much popular but I'm guessing there are big fans here as well and I see its popularity only increasing with time.

7. "Night Attack on Little Sis!" was the first product you published on DLSite.com. Prior to your success with "Night Attack on Little Sis!" on DLSite.com, were you involved as a contributor to other games?

Before starting to work on Night Attack I've been fiddling for 3 years with any kind of stuff related to making games (such as 3d, any-kind-of-game-engine-out-there, drawing, animation etc) in order to learn and understand what fit me the most.

8. "Night Attack on Little Sis!" is a big hit; many users are enjoying it. For those who have not yet played it, please tell us about what they will see and can expect on this product?

Oh it's a pretty straightforward game. You get to sneak in your little sister's bedroom to try to undress and fondle her in order to make her orgasm without awakening her. Backstory is up to your imagination!

9. Have you read any of the reviews of your game written by Japanese users?

My japanese is heavily lacking but with the aid of a translator I read all of them. A person in particular made an in-depth review of it which made me super-happy!

10. The concept, "Sleeping Molestation Simulation Game" is very unique. How did you come up with this idea?

There is certain charm behind the slow discovery of the opposite sex which draws up some of our earlier erotic memories. The fear of getting caught creates a state of heart-pounding exhilaration.

11. The style of illustration is "moe" which is very popular among Japanese users. When you were planning and creating this product, were Japanese part of your intended audience? If so, what characteristics of the product did you try and tailor for Japanese users?

I just happen to love japanese art style, I intended this game for both Japanese and International audiences.

12. Users play with "a young sister", not a girlfriend or a classmate etc. Why did you choose this character for your product?

A sibling is normally someone you've spent most of your life and therefore have built a special relationship with. But at the same time, you've probably never explored its erotic side while lust has built up over time. It also is considered somewhat forbidden which only adds to the excitement!

13. From where do you draw your greatest inspiration to create your products?

From my wicked mind that is ultimately the fruit of all the things I've seen and experienced!

14. What is the most important consideration when you are developing your products? What element is the most important to you?

For me it is important to give people a chance to experience those forbidden fantasies, and to do so through fun gameplay.

15. What tools or software do you use when you are creating your products?

I've used Unity for Night Attack but honestly it is too much bloated with stuff and team-oriented so development was a bit slow. Flash or Gamemaker are better alternatives for this kind of games. For the animations I've made use of Spine.

16. How do you enjoy spending your time when you are not working? Do you have any hobbies or special interests?

When I'm not in the digital world, I like to take some fresh air at the park and practice my kung fu skills!

17. So many users are enjoying "Night Attack on Little Sis!", and they are curious what you have in the works for your next project. Can you provide a preview of what you are working on now for future release? Also, please let us know your goals for your future?

I'm actively working on my next game named Wet Summer Days which tells about the water-related fetishes of two cousins getting to meet in a rural house. It will make use of more advanced gameplay elements and progression systems. Goals? To improve my skills and make greater eroge! You can follow my progress as well as help shape my games up at my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/rayn

18. You have been so very successful in this field. Do you have any advice for new developers to help inspire them?

Do not fear to dive in if you really like making games, do not give up your dreams as silly as they may sound. You will eventually succeed but also know that for that to happen you may need to go truly hardcore mode (hell yeah!) and make sacrifices. Take all the stuff you like and all the stuff you're good at and try to make something out of it.

19. Any message for your fans?

Thank you dearly for buying my products and/or supporting me in other ways. I will keep doing my best and I'm always eager to hear from you! Ninja out! ~(。--)
