< report >To put it simply what defines a Visual Novel and an Adventure Game is how the story is being presented.

If the story is being presented as a text in a box no bigger then half of the screen its an ADV. Example: link

If the story is being presented as a text that takes place in anywhere on the screen without clear cut boxes to confide it in it is a VN. Example: link

(note that the games that allow you to make the text box invisible like v278 MaW2 doesn't count as VN's)

Many users are tagging games with long stories as VN's, thats a wrong use, please use these tags based on the story telling method used instead.Last modified on 2008-07-08 at 16:11

< report >On a second note, if a games story is being told in a box thats larger then half of the screen its a VN of course. But more importantly some games switch between both methods from time to time, those should be marked with both VN and ADV. Example: v5
