< report >Ruina ~Haito no Monogatari~ is a story-driven JRPG, but not a VN. The storytelling segments are short and discontinuous. The main parts of the game are combat and exploration. link

r60858 is an e-book link, not a game.Last modified on 2021-01-20 at 10:20

< report >As short as they may be, Jingse Xiaoran and Yingse Lingluo are standalone stories, rather than a remake of the original. I don't think they belong to the same VN entry.
r77233 is supposed to be deleted, as Japanese releases of those two were already in the database, making it redundant.

< report >Liu Zhixiao dupe of Liu Zhixiao

Also I wonder why Ruina didn't get deleted... Shame it's little known in the Anglophone world while being one of the most influential Japanese freeware games ever made so I can't find any English article about it except that MTL desc.Last modified on 2021-01-24 at 03:58

< report >Undelete Ruina ~Haito no Monogatari~ it is a VN, it has significant amounts of uninterrupted reading sections with narration
also can you please stop deleting things based off watching 5 minutes of youtube videos and actually consult someone who read the VN, thanks

< report >Watched more than 5 minutes. This link has a playthrough of the game and I have watched maybe 40 minutes. Didn't see anything that is even remotely VN-like.

< report >40 minutes is no better than 5 minutes for a VN of this length, its significantly more VN-like later on

< report >You say to consult people before deleting things, but that's unfeasible for unpopular games with few users having played them. In this case we see two people who have played it having different opinions: qpo says it's not a VN, you say it's a VN. From what I have seen, I'm inclined to support qpo.

The game looks like the very definition of a traditional RPG, not that different from any Final Fantasy title. Please, show me those supposed VN sections, because the pure gameplay sections are very long. I just checked a random 30 minute clip and it was pure gameplay with no reading whatsoever.

< report >IDK what exactly you watch when you say you watched a video about it and this is probably going to sound stupid, but wouldn't a youtube video be biased in what it shows, especially if it's a short clip? If I had 30 minutes to show off a game, it would hardly have any VN, mostly "gameplay" as it were because that's what people would be more interested in.

Just my 2 cents.

< report >If you have checked the link I have posted, it has the whole playthrough of the game. As it's over 20 hours long, I only watched the beginning and some clips from the middle. Considering most hybrids concentrate the most VN elements in the beginning, and they become thinner as the game progresses, the fact there are no VN elements in the beginning at all, is telling, imho.

< report >I had never seen people call it a VN or anything like that (in Japanese/Chinese player community), for years, until I came across that VN entry.

You can get few search results with "Ruina + novel game", and only some of them mean it's considered a novel game/VN. Others may compare it with a VN, or recommend it to VN fans. link link (Not "Ruina + novel" because it has a novel series.)

While "Ruina + RPG" is tweeted almost everyday. link (Excludes "library" for Library of Ruina.)

Also, it was considered "a hybrid between JRPG and P&P" by a RPG Codex user. link It's known for being "gamebook-styled". link

I hope this can prove how most players think of it.Last modified on 2021-01-25 at 03:36

< report >Seems like we've made two entries (r77276 and r77275) at pretty much the same time.

< report >Aren't these the same novel? I think Daddy Lies changed it's name to The Secrets We Keep and somehow it got a new entry.

< report >To be clearer, you have one result for 織澤 明史 and another one for 織澤 あきふみ which is an alias of the first. Hover over the two names and you will see.

< report >Episode - Choose Your Story should be removed, right? It's not a VN, it's a platform for other people to make their own stories with.

< report >Not sure if this is premature but r56771 the official site shows no sign of mobile releases present or future, it only says the game will be available on steam and itch.
