t13170.22019-11-20Any news on the English release?You could just check the release entry: "As of October 25th, translation is 100% complete. Editing is 100% complete. Image editing and programming
t13165.62019-11-18Being a VN Fan or in Industry is Suffering@3: You do know what Gacha came from, right? VNs where they sell you lootboxes for character with crappy gameplay you have to do, to read the story
t13144.92019-11-13Mosaic or No?@7: Look at the English hcg of something like Princess Evangile and tell me it's not disgusting. Vndb has no screen for that, and I can't tell you

t7442.5762019-11-11Game inclusion in the DB@573: Adventure is the main genre where the sub genres branch off. Visual Novels are one of those. Just like point and click adventures and others
t13122.42019-11-08Vns where the writers are female?Funny you mention Orgel. One of the routes from Tonakoi actually is in a way it'd be rather unlikely to be written by a male writer. Unfortunately
t11973.182019-11-06RIP this game^The gameplay is unchanged crap, if not made even worse. The story being "an improvement" also doesn't say much in this case. The early complaints
t7442.5652019-11-06Game inclusion in the DBZero Escape 1+2 is a completely normal VN for long enough times. The gameplay parts are very separate and the novel parts have essentially no choices
t7442.5592019-11-05Game inclusion in the DBHonestly, I don't consider "roleplaying" a novel. If the player has 100% control over the text said by their "avatar" (though it can also be quite a
t13068.152019-11-02Bishoujo vs Otome gameYou don't necessarily want "realistic" in fiction. It may be realistic and quite possible that a major "villain" stumbles down the stairs and breaks
t13096.22019-11-02Remake by GigaWasn't the console version the only one worth it, because of the protagonist being voiced by shizuku ? Not sure if a PC remake is needed. I hope this

t13090.52019-11-01Muramasa 10th Anniversary@3: I dunno about that. Geckou was so bad, I didn't even manage to get past common, and Axanael gets ruined by its awful structure, but also by how

t13079.22019-10-2910 years anniversaryWell, their Steam stuff was so halfhearted it was meant to fail anyway. One of them was even a machine translated game, if I remember right. But yeah

t2108.29502019-10-28Candidates for deletionDLC, sequel or not, are still part of the main game. Separating that is just completely nuts and defeats any purpose a new entry can have. What's so
t13062.182019-10-28I just cant........^Nukige and utsuge are usually mutually exclusive due to how much they define a game. A nukige is mostly about the adult content and "using it". That

t12889.52019-10-27Has anyone played this?It's not badly ported though. Probably at least. It's much more likely that it's crap on the Ps4 as well. The Ps4 also just happens to have 8gb of
t13061.142019-10-25MangaGamer vs Arunaru controveryI mean. It's not different in Japan. Doing work at VNs is something you do because of passion. Every writer getting successful enough mitigates to LN
t13047.162019-10-23Anime announcedYou guys are acting as if they definitely want to make a stand-alone anime. Most VN adaptions are simply advertisement so new people check the game
t13046.52019-10-22The VN with most characters including space.With this kind of stuff, you can't really count serialized stuff, or works that aren't a first major release. It's just weird. Like Higurashi, the
t13027.132019-10-15Translators as staff@9: I actually don't think quality check is even part of normal credits. At least not name by name. Usually it's stuff like "all staff", which makes

t13019.52019-10-14timing for this vnThe length is supposed to be an average. It's no problem to be a slow reader, but not everyone is like that. There are enough who'd consistently land
t6094.1662019-10-12Steam sale@160: I know this is getting old, but Steam is just a store. Publishers themselves decide if the game has DRM or not. There are a lot of games on
t13008.32019-10-11Any good endings?In this game's case it's less about being depressing, as the true ending doesn't make sense anyway. The good part of this game isn't the story in the
t12979.32019-10-11Technical messHonestly, if they wanted to do better with sprites, doing it like Studio Ryokucha or the kuru series is better. Emote can be fine if it's done well
t12988.22019-10-07Horror?I wouldn't exactly consider a tag strength of 0.3 as "it's tagged as horror". It's okay, given the curse and how "spooky things" can hunt/kill
t12976.72019-10-07Piano Duet denied reason weirdHow useful is that anyway? If we have too many tags, useless things like this shouldn't be added, as nobody would ever search for that. Also, there's
t12963.42019-10-06My Thought on thisThey probably changed the style, because having multiple emote characters on the screen at once kills the game. Might have been somewhat worried

t12533.492019-09-26Tag Cleanup #2 - Problematic TagsWhy even delete a tag that's obviously needed? It can be the parent of any other tag defining things more restrictively.
t11968.172019-09-23Mangagamer Translation@16: So. Onii-chan has "broski" as a western.. uhm.. equivalent? Also, a localization's goal is pretty clear: Make people understand stuff. Literal
t11968.112019-09-23Mangagamer TranslationThat's some twisted logic. Either you localize words like that. Or you don't. Otherwise you COMPLETELY miss the point on why you even do this in the

t12894.32019-09-22someone give me a reason to keep playing?A story doesn't need drama. But it does need a hook and something worth looking out for. Good slice of life is also varied enough to make it work

t3831.122019-09-17100% Voiced VNsShouldn't limit you in the long run anyway. Sure, close to 100% voiced is nice, but everything I know is just very hard to recommend.
t3831.102019-09-17100% Voiced VNsTie-in console only games are probably all more or less fully voiced like this. So anything based on a franchise really. Similar to that is stuff
