After checking Youtube gameplay videos I have also removed Sengoku Night Blood and That's Little World. Thanks to Savage and Scorpion for bringing those to attention.

@armony: Played a bit more of that game, though not to the end, and I think it does ultimately qualify as a VN. Feel free to add it here.Last modified on 2017-06-10 at 16:00

I'd like to ask once again about this game link . I didn't get an answer before because it wasn't released yet. It could be a VN just presented uniquely, but it may be a borderline case.

Now that's a very weird title. I mean, it doesn't help that nothing seems to be in English.

It's a riddle game for Chinese audiences. There is one screenshot on the store page that indicates some sort of narration, but it looks like the majority of the gameplay is on the actual wordplay riddles.

Wow, that's quite contrary to what I thought it was, thanks for the clarification harley.

I hate to be that person who keeps bringing up random Western indie games in the game inclusion thread, but thoughts about these?

Alone With You link link - reminds me a bit (structure-wise) of Read Only Memories, but with free-roaming segments instead of a command wheel. No narration, but loads of text.

You Must Be 18 or Older to Enter link - this one's just kinda weirdLast modified on 2017-06-18 at 01:26

Alone With You, I don't think it could qualify as a visual novel. The reason - but that's my reason, it's not the guidelines - is that text doesn't seem to be the main driving force of the game. A story-focused game, that's for sure, but not a visual novel imo.

YMB18OO2E, this one I think it's pretty much a visual novel, even if it's weird (and kinda boring despite the nice use of sound and quirky visuals). It's narrated, text drives the game with a story... well, yeah, pretty much a VN.

My feelings are similar to those of Palas.
Alone with You definitely doesn't look like it could qualify as a visual novel, while we might be able to squeeze YMB18OO2E in. It sort of fits, even if the presentation is a weird one.

Sorry beliar, I shouldn't have added that trait. She just seems like a reverse trap to me, but I keep forgetting that other people don't agree. I should have learned from my lessons on how the site works, cause I don't want to tarnish it.Last modified on 2017-06-19 at 17:40

What do you think about Dieselmine's "Material Girl"?
Steam version: link
Original version (NSFW): link
Looks like a combination of visual novel and RPG.Last modified on 2017-06-20 at 10:17

I've played and finished it before the Steam release was announced. It definitely doesn't qualify as a VN, most of the game is running around trying to earn cash to pay off the bills. VN-like segments arise only with regards to sex scenes.

Incidentally, the steam version is basically the 18+ version with all the h-scenes, just with the naughty bits whited out. Several companies have found that they can get away with this on Steam, with some even posting the uncensor patch in the reviews section as a loophole for Steam's policies. It's an... interesting approach. Expect more nukige companies to take notice of this.

Also, the English translation is barely-edited machine translation. It's extremely bad.
