Talk: So You Want To Be a Solo Dev

shibalist is a writer/artist/programmer/jack-of-all-trades who started making romance VNs during the pandemic, because what else is there to do during a pandemic (also, they wanted to see more unconventional romances). Due to the trauma of college group projects, they decided to go mostly solo and have not regretted it since.

shibalist’s solo projects include Yrsa Major (Otome Jam 2021) and the in-development Heart Sigil Elchemia (Otome Jam 2022 demo). They’ve also made VNs within larger dev teams, including writing/editing/coding for Under the Witch’s Trial (NaNoReNo 2022) and logo design for Pocket Love (Otome Jam 2022).
