Visual Arts, formerly Visual Artist Office, and previously spelled in English as VisualArt's, is a Japanese publishing company which specializes in publishing and distributing visual novels for a large list of game developers. Visual Arts has developed game engines their brands currently use, including the current engine, called Siglus, and older engines RealLive and AVG32. Visual Arts also handles the distribution of these games. The games published are mostly for a male audience, though they publish games targeted towards women as well. They are well known for publishing games developed by Key, such as Kanon, Air, and Clannad.
