< report >So I just finished yu-no and I feel like shit. Why? Because it sucks to have something this great end.
So here I am, asking for reccomendations. I am aware that there's nothing quite like yu-no out there but it would atleast be awesome if there was some kind of vn with a similar gameplay system. Any ideas?

< report >Weeell, closes thing to yuno I played is divi-dead I guess. I did enjoy it, but translation isnt great and gameplay is .. well, I suggest using walkthrough. YUNO is better in practically every aspect, but somehow darker story of dividead makes it worthwhile - I rated these VNs same, but because I personally was enthralled by it, objectively I would say that YUNO is just superior in every way except -arguably- story. And perhaps OST, while YUNO has a lot more tracks, none of them really made much impression on me.

But yeah, yuno "timeline" system is unique and my recommandation is actually not really that close, from that era is not translated that much (era with more interactive gameplay generally speaking), so I wouldnt be really surprised, it there wasnt something closer in japanese.

Come to think of it, this link could be a bit similiar too.

I don't think any of them are good (and most aren't really VNs).

You must be joking. Please, tell me you're joking. It's not too late.

< report >If you're willing to tolerate rather arahaic control interfaces, may I recommend Gateway 2: link

It may not quite qualify as a VN, but it is a darn fine adventure with some vaguely similar gameplay as YU-NO but with more depth.Last modified on 2014-11-19 at 00:19

< report >Eve burst Error an Divi-dead, huh?
Guess that's better than nothing. I will go with divi-dead for starters I suppose.

Thank you for all the reccomendations guys.

< report >If you're into point-n-click item gathering adventure style of games. Sadly, there are way more western games in this genre than Japanese eroges.

Monkey island series is a great place to start.

If you absolutely want games in the eroge catagory. There's always Isaku. Where you gather items to escape a building. Or Doukyuusei 1 and 2, no item gathering but plenty of click-n-exploring.

Desire is technically a proto-Yu-No. Not as polished as Yu-no, though.

< report >I heard Desire and EVE are beta version of YU-No.
But Desire probably isn't the best game out there. It's confusing and obtuse. Requires a walkthrough. And the second protag's scenario is just a lot of sex.
However, EVE is a masterpiece. Amazing game.
