The musical effects are great! They are more like transitions that you could use between chapters or for intermissions, etc.

The BGM music is for the most part "merry" or "happy go lucky", but there are a few "humor", "horror", and "sad" tracks as well, so you can create a project with varied emotion.

There are also some bonus sound effects. Most of these are school bells or door bells, I think.

This is by chance exactly what I needed for a visual novel that I'm working on.

I think that I counted 17 completely unique renders. I would suggest downloading the trial to make sure that it will work for your project.

The only drag is that the documentation and charts are all written in Japanese, though they seem completely unnecessary.

The addition of snow in the outdoor scenes is a nice touch. You can also look out the balcony onto the city, but if you look out the front door, you'll just see the background blend into a dense fog, snow, or rain.

KyuKyuKyunoQnoQ does it again!

These backgrounds look a little older and slightly flatter than their others, but they are still great for your visual novel game.

The set includes a bedroom with vanity, a bedroom showing a desk / homework area, a Japanese sitting room, a chain convenient store, a mom and pop convenient store, a kitchen, and a tea shop or restaurant or something.

All of the scenes come with day and night renders.

I downloaded this set of backgrounds because I really needed a pool for my summer scene.

There are nine different backgrounds, but really there are only about 7 unique ones because the 2 pool and 2 telephone backgrounds are very similar to each other.

There are a bathroom, classroom, station, two pools, two telephone poles, a school or office building, and an "ivory tower" which just looks like a school.

I was a little disappointed because the texture qualities varied, and I bought the set for the pool, but the pool looked like it came straight out of a 3D modeling program.

The station, office building, and classroom are really nice though, so it's still worth it for under $20.00.

Pickup!Good Songs for Visual Novels

Copyright-free BGM FULL Collection Vol.4
StudioKannazuki
$43.43 / 4,860 JPY | 450pt (10% back)
Original music compositions for free use in games and other media. 1 lyric track, 8 short arrangements, 40 BGM tracks.

I bought this collection because I needed a theme song for my visual novel. There are three folders. The first folder has 20 tracks where most are about a minute or longer. The second folder has 20 tracks as well, but many of the songs are under one minute which is why I gave the product a "4" (out of 5) overall. In the third folder, you get different renditions of one song. I think the karaoke tracks that it offers are a good bonus because you can use them to have a karaoke contest.

The trial folders provide a good representation of what you're buying, so you can always try before you buy to make sure it's the right product for you.

I bought this pack because I needed an indoor castle background, but I was a little worried that the scene would look like a 3D render as opposed to a 2D painted scene.

The images look better than the preview images, so I was happy.

There are a throne room, a hallway, a Japanese sitting / dining area, a game arcade (outside), a hallway in what looks like a hospital or maybe a school, a dessert, and a library. There's also an empty classroom. I'm not sure why they didn't put desks in it.

They also have multiple renders inside. So, they have morning, afternoon, and night, but they also have "lights off" at night and "lights on" (for the inside scenes).

The desert scenes also have some with and without moons.

I really think that Blue Forest has outdone themselves this time.

The armor is phenomenally well-done. It's glossy and shiny and the color is incredible.

If you have the "older brother" adult sprites from Blue Forest already, I think they will fit some of the male sprites, but for the women I'm not sure.

The weapons are pretty impressive as well. I can't imagine anyone rating this product with less than 5 stars for this price.

I downloaded the “Shouta” collection from Blue Forest as well as this one.

The download is packed with a large number of high quality sprites. It also comes with a bonus character creator which allows for more variation and additional characters, but if you can't read Japanese, it's kind of hard to figure out what you need to click on. This pack was particularly helpful for me because I can add a variety of ages to my game which really helps to bring a more complete experience to the user.

This collection is a little better than the Shota collection in my opinion in terms of quality.

My only complaint would be that a lot of the images are of the girls holding up their fists. I don't know why, but it looks like maybe you could add a balloon or ice cream cone to their hand if you wanted them to hold something.

This is another very well-done package by Blue Forest. There are lots of great images and different outfits for a variety of different scenes, but some of the boys haircuts are a little ugly and some of them look like girls. There are also bonus "stress", "cry", and other emotion marks included in the download. It's definitely a good buy if you need some younger male characters or “Shoutas” in your project.

Pickup!A Game Music Pack for Indie Developers

Copyright-free BGM FULL Collection Vol.2

$28.95 / 3,240 JPY | 300pt (10% back)
FULL Collection Vol.2 is a compilation of 3 released volumes.

If you are making an independent game project for an RPG, 2D fighter, or visual novel, you will likely be able to use some, if not most of these tracks. The tracks are usually about 2 minutes in length, and have enough variety to provide for a complete range of emotions and experiences.

Volume 4 seems a little more RPG oriented to me. Many of the tracks could easily be imagined on JRPG games for the Playstation 1, so they seem a little bit retro at this point. There are 10 tracks which range from being sad, upbeat, battle/action, RPG field (happy day/light). There is also one track which seems to have a Spanish playa (beach) feel to it.

Volume 5 is similar to volume 4. It contains what sound like RPG battles, a few motivational / positive tracks and an out of place organ piece which is great for me because I have one scene with a church in it. The instruments range from flutes, to organs, and even a drum or drum machine piece. There is also an eerie track if you need a piece of scary music for your game.

Volume 6 is a little bit different. It has one track which sounds kind of snake charmer like or Egyptian. It also has a few humor/gag/fool tracks which are good for any scenes if you have a character that is a buffoon or just need something for more light-hearted moments. It also has some upbeat/light tracks and one sad/melancholy one.

I ended up labeling a lot of the tracks because if you can't read Japanese, the names aren't going to be of much use to you. Ultimately, the pack should have enough material to make a complete game with a great atmosphere.

The only downside is that some of the tracks seem a little bit noisy to me. You can download the free trials at each of the available links to check each volume before you purchase the pack.

Overall, I would recommend this pack for any developer on an audio budget that needs to make a game.
