< report >Is being able to click to advance a requirement to qualify as a VN?

Systematic Insanity is made in Visual Novel Maker and occasionally shows a tiny bit of the default interface to let you save, but it seems to be primarily a movie in VN format. You can't speed it up or slow it down, all you can do is sit and stare at it.

< report >I recently "obtained" it. Here are some screenshots: intro - title screen - prologue - first animated scene (Suggestive) - dialogue (fully automated) - save menu - narration - pause menu.

Edit: Although you can pause the "game", it goes to a pause menu, it doesn't stop the auto mode. Also, it seems you can only do that in the dialogue parts; there isn't any GUI during narration or scenes.Last modified on 2021-09-05 at 21:07

In that case it's just a movie that for some reason uses the game engine for playback, but whatever floats the dev's boat. There are interactive movies in the db, but in all cases they allow to at least pause the playback. If this feature is missing, I don't believe the 'game' should be here.

Is that game even out yet? I can't even find any footage of it on Youtube. Looking up the Japanese name gives no results either.

It seems to be pretty usual VN RPG. (Story narrated in VN style + plus some 3D rendered action sequences and RPG gameplay). Also it's produced by Key and written VN veteran Maeda Jun. So I believe it could pretty much fit here.
They even specifing that as "ドラマチックRPG"Last modified on 2021-09-12 at 21:42

Can Boyfriend Dungeon be added?
Not... sure? The few gameplay videos I've watched showed that there is some narration, however the dungeon crawling parts get pretty lengthy. Is there enough pure story to shift balance for the story/gameplay ratio? Hard to say from the videos, especially with most YTubers editing their videos.

Gonna abstain from a decision. If you have played the game and feel there is more story than gameplay in it, I won't prevent you from adding it.

Could Heaven Burns Red be added?
As it was mentioned, it's not out yet, and I'm not gonna judge the game based on promo videos.
