Just from what I've seen, though, it seems like the VN community would benefit more from achieving past 50% than to finish that last 10%...I think the difference is that VNs don't usually have the exponential bug growth that games do...

I've seen that article before and the "last 10 percent" paragraph is pretty accurate. When we finished I stayed until 3 am fixing the last bugs; drunk from prematurely opened champagne.

Though I don't think finishing a game should be the goal for all developers. As you're developing... as a developer, it's just as good to sharpen your teeth on less than serious projects.

I was a hobbyist developer long before I started doing this for a living and I've frequent a swedish developer forum. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a someone announces a new project and draws up a ridiculously large-scale concept (like the epic MMO) and the first thing they do is create a web site and a logo, just so that they can show off their non-existent game. My experience is that if showing off is the primary goal the game will never get made, not in a million years.

The analogous VN concept to the above: demos. It seems like most projects stop at that stage...
