#3901 & #3902: sources are good because we can't read Chinese or Indonesian.

Setou Kenji, Hakamichi Shizune, Mutou Akio, Shirakawa Yuuko seem to be unnecessary duplicates of their original counterparts. At least I don't see any reason for their existences.
These characters are from a non-canon fan game to Katawa Shoujo. That automatically means the character traits cannot be added to the canonic characters, and new character instances need to be created.

link no update since 2016
You meant to say "no update since the end of 2020", right?Last modified on 2021-07-19 at 20:40

< report >r32019 might be a candidate for deletion. It's been months since the patch was supossed to be out and there's no proof of it actually existing. The translator changed and privatised his Twitter account, has stated he will delete his account and overall there's nothing that points out it's being actually worked on or if the translator even did anything at all in the first place.

If something ever comes out, it could be undeleted, but for now I think it's safe to assume the project is either dead or it wasn't even a thing at all.Last modified on 2021-07-20 at 02:24

Yes. Relevant: Fun Translations.
That's.. both disturbing and hilarious. I'm surprised they went for something as "archaic" as that for their system. I guess it works if you have close to zero knowledge around how to make a more "proper" decryption system, but hell...

Also, as I was just reminded of it; How do you handle cases such as NONSTOP! ~Aru Onna no Ko no Nukisashi Naranai Nichijou~ - unless there was a proper 'application' release at some point, it is a set of 8 .wmv files (with 6 variation videos). There's text to some degree during most moments of the scenes, with small portions featuring only text on a still background.
So essentially, how do you treat releases that only consist of video files but still have plenty of text in ADV/NVL format?

That's doubly relevant since then a title I made a request about prior may (or may not) have been a valid entry - I didn't actually watch that video, though judging by the trailer the parts with text have very limited amounts of text apart from a few scenes.Last modified on 2021-07-20 at 00:35

< report >Videos are not VN even if they look like a VN recording. The dlsite link says format = video and file format = wmv and the description matches what you are saying about 8 episodes.
"Videos" are ok if you can manually click the text to go to the next line.
We don't even accept translated playthroughs (though I disagree).Last modified on 2021-07-20 at 03:15

< report >Voeux Exaucés

All social networks of this project disappeared, so it is possible to assume that it is dead (The demo would supposedly be available for download on December 30, 2017).

Facebook page not updated since 2016. Twitter account hasn't posted anything OTHER than retweets since 2017, when they said the game was "almost ready". Between 2017 and 2019 they retweeted some other people's posts but even that has stopped now. No one seems to have mentioned the project's name anywhere since 2017.

Altdeus: Beyond Chronos is a VR game.
Looking at the releases, unless the PS4 releases are also VR only that's not entirely true - and even if it was that should be irrelevant to wether it should be on VNDB or not, right? What I mean is that assuming that the game/VN roughly fulfills the requirements for being added, it being VR or not shouldn't matter - unless a decisive ruling has been made about VR games in the past.

As for this particular one I couldn't tell you just based on the tags and screenshots, someone who have actually played it would have to comment on how the narrative is handled outside of the samples provided and how much there is of it.Last modified on 2021-07-23 at 04:14

Altdeus: Beyond Chronos is a VR game.
After watching a bit of the playthrough (link), I don't have any particular objections for the game to be in the db. The fact it's VR, is not a criteria for exclusion. There really isn't narration as such, but the gameplay elements are rudimentary, so that's not a big problem.

Yeah, the screenshots gave me the impression it was gonna be a pure walking simulator a la The Stanley Parable.

< report >I actually added this as a VN, but after second thought I don't think it belongs here: Ensemble Stars!

There are a lot of ADV segments, from the main story and card stories, but after reading some of it again, it doesn't seem like there's much narration at all. It's mostly just dialogues and monologues.

I couldn't find too many videos of people going through the story parts, but here's a look at the first chapter:

Most of the ADV parts are like this. Any narration usually just comes in the form of internal monologue. And the VN parts are only one part of the game (albeit it's probably the main reason to play it):

Might not actually be considered a hybrid VN.

I added it mostly since it was similiar to A3! and Obey Me! but it might not fit VNDB like I thought. I think it should probably be deleted.Last modified on 2021-07-23 at 14:36
