< report >I'm very curious if Sound Novel Tsukuru should be here. It just seems like an engine for you to make VNs, not an actual VN itself. It would be like adding RPGMaker as a game to an RPG database. Does it come packaged with some pre-made VNs or something?

The game comes with a previously created graphic novel about exploring an old house.
Literally in the description.
Sample game is called サウンドノベル劇場 夏の樹に棲む妖精(ニンフ). This should probably be the name of the entry.

The second entry has three common sample games + 1 per console for a total of five.Last modified on 2021-10-28 at 02:21

< report >Curious that Long Live the Queen was removed because "it is primarily a raising simulator", so VN cannot be primarily a simulator? I guess we better start purging the dating simulators, because they might lean too much into the simulation aspect. Or do dating simulators just get an exception in that regard?

I'm genuinely curious, about the criteria, like what would the creators have to change/add to be qualified as a VN? Would Long Live the Queen qualify as a VN if they added 1-hour of kinetic novel content before the raising sim aspect even appears?Last modified on 2021-12-02 at 15:14

That's informing. Let's see if I got this right:
In Long Live the Queen, each day you pick lessons to improve your stats, and your stat decides what happens after the lesson.
Therefore if the attendance of the lessons would be played out (where you talk to the teacher) instead of being offscreen, it would be considered VN? Because it would be indistinguishable from dating sims where you choose which place to visit every day?Last modified on 2021-12-02 at 18:33

< report >As I understand it, it was ruled out because the story segments between activities are not very long, so the amount of uninterrupted reading fails to give a fully VN-like feeling and makes it come across as more of a "sim date" or a pure raising sim, where the primary gameplay is all about boosting stats and the story is just a dressing on top.

I don't think that totally fits for Long Live The Queen because it is a very story-based game with zero randomness, unlike your average raising sim where all that matters is what you've gotten your stats to by the end of the game. A pure sim, you have to get through a little bit of story in order to get back to the main action of stat-raising. Long Live The Queen is more the other way around, you have to get through a little stat-raising in order to get back to the story. The game is still playable even if you use cheats to put all your stats to 100 from the beginning, because the story is the main gameplay, not the stats.

However, it's true that the story segments are short, so is it really a visual "novel", that's the question.

< report >#881 What truly is short? Is 1,000 words between raising sim? What about 2,000? 3,000?

< report >Cambrian QTS ~Kaseki ni nattemo~
Because someone didn't add a release it was removed??
I was about to add the game but found out it has a deleted entry even though it's a vn.
