< report >I mean there are so extremely low effort RenPy things like this: link

I feel like inclusion should have some standards, otherwise, the database will eventually be buried by memeshit. Even a monkey can copypaste stockphotos and throw random words together, but the result should not be considered a visual novel in any meaningful way.

Personally, I'd go as extreme as to advocate for the complete ban on the inclusion of RenPy games. RenPy users should make their own database.

< report >We are a database, not the taste police (for real, not the steam way), so no.

that's just racism but for VN engine.

< report >Several Japanese games are written in RenPy as well, or were ported to it when released in English.

Also, there are plenty of low-effort JP games as well, though they're slightly less likely to get added to the database because few users here go to the effort of following every five-minute-long freem game.

< report >It's useless to point out how OP is dumb in his quest to get rid of stuff he doesn't like. He is not the first and won't be the last one.
What should be done is teaching him and all people like him how to use filters, because, apparently, they don't know that it is possible to never encounter what they don't like when they browse VNDB. And to do that, they don't have to be selfish asses and erase something.

Look at that, your wet dream in a query!
Click save/load and save those filters as default.
Now we can go back to our previous tasks which are to add more crapware to the db.Last modified on 2022-04-20 at 00:33

< report >How about the OP started to not make a typo in the title just because he's blinded by fury seeing a lot of meme VNs in the database?Last modified on 2022-04-20 at 02:06

< report >Ren'py is just a python based engine for visual novels. Saying no Ren'py visual novels because some are low quality is like saying no unity based games because there are some low quality unity games out there. There are some very high level, very customized visual novels made in Ren'py that you'd never be able to tell was made in Ren'py. Of course there are also a lot of low effort games too - but if it wasn't Ren'py, it'd just be made in visual novel maker or one of the others. Ren'py is just used so often because it's really good.

You can't be biased based on the engine, that is arbitrary; and once you start trying to create a curated list based on 'quality', which is subjective to a degree, you open a whole other can of worms. As suggested above, just filter your own searches to see what you want to see in the database.Last modified on 2022-04-20 at 07:52
