< report >I initially kept it alive because SP claimed that they'd seek other ways to make the release happen. But it's been awhile since then and we haven't heard a word from them on that subject, so I think we can just call it dead and re-add it if they ever actually do release it another way (unlikely).

< report >The End of the Witch of Lorven probably isn't a VN. There's no narration on screenshots or video (on the official website). Looks like a simple RPG Maker game like To the Moon etc.

< report >@1338 You're probably right. I added it, but I don't necessarily trust my own judgment from way back in 2013, so I played it through just now to check. It has no gameplay at all, just pressing enter to progress dialogue; all the character movements are scripted. So in that respect, not at all like "To the Moon." But it doesn't have narration, and it doesn't have a typical VN presentation. Happy to hear what other mods think, but if there's no objections I'll delete it.

< report >I think there is no reason to keep Narcissu: A Little Iris as a separate entry since it is a chapter from Narcissu 3rd -Die Dritte Welt- (you can even see the name on the 3rd screenshot). It's should be listed as a different release and that's all.

< report >Eh, I thought vndb divides entries only if the content is different. Like if the new version of the game is completely rewritten. And it seems like there is no difference between Narcissu: A Little Iris and A Little Iris from Narcissu 3rd at all. Not even updated graphics or a new content (and even this is not enough for a separate entry).

< report >I agree with merging Narcissu: A Little Iris and Narcissu 3rd -Die Dritte Welt-. The situation here is identical to Tsukihime Plus-Disc. Genshi Doumei was a single story from the fan-disc released separately, and we have it as a partial release to the main game.

Long Live The Queen
They are pure raising sims.
True Love ~Jun'ai Monogatari~
This is pure classic date sim, it can be called as even one of forebear of the genre.

Actually I thought they were deleted already long time ago. Why keeping them even now, after all clearing the rules discussions?

Even if they can have some bits of narration - it is in the range of typical amount ANY sample of these genres will ALWAYS have. I tried to play them recenty - and I am certain now - they aren't vns at all. If you don't believe me - try them yourselves.

P.S.: also
Ar Tonelico ~Sekai no Owari de Utai Tsuzukeru Shoujo~
Ar Tonelico II ~Sekai ni Hibiku Shoujo-tachi no Metafalica~
Ar Tonelico III ~Sekai Shuuen no Hikigane wa Shoujo no Uta ga Hiku~
Ar Nosurge ~Umareizuru Hoshi e Inoru Uta~

Let's be honest here - they are jrpg before anything else. Despite being one who introduce the series here I admit it was done more by fan impulse rather than thoughtful estimation. They have vn elements but with almost zero narration and at ratio of like 10% of whole game AT BEST (and those elements are more like minigames to learn new spells with some character development along the way). They should be deleted long time ago as well if you intend to keep adherence to rules here not only in words. I know they are included in d15 rule here as exceptions but I think they are too borderline even for that. Maybe I feel my guilt here as creator of that entry - but I think it is my responsibility to delete them as well to keep vndb from becoming confusing mess further. I promise to be more prudent when I would try to add new borderline game to vndb next time )

P.P.S.: I think all this can result in needless long discussion again - sorry about that, I don't want make my post flamebait either. Maybe it would be more productive to make poll about deletion of such entries and do accordingly to what results after, let's say, one week will tell.Last modified on 2016-02-01 at 01:52
