  1. Hey guys!

    Welcome to Fuwanovel! Hope you'll have fun posting.
  2. There's a VNDB tag for it. My personal recommendation, or rather the only game with that feature I played in which it actually made a difference, would be Sable's Grimoire. A very cool, story-centric EVN.
  3. Fast paced VNs?

    Hmmm... I usually go with EVN recommendations, but here especially they could be more to your liking, as they're usually short and to the point. Sweetest Monster and Lynne are great, short horrors by Ebi-hime. Soundless is a slightly similar, unsettling and climatic game. Ace Academy and One Thousand Lies are a nice, relatively short plotge without excess SoL fluff. Obviously, things like Saya no Uta, Phenomeno or even euphoria won't give you much time to rest. At least, those are the games that come to my mind when people ask for stuff with less SoL/faster plot progression, after all even chuunige usually have enormous wordcounts and a lot of casual moments, it's a bit of a core feature of VNs as a medium from my (limited) experience.
  4. Hello! New guy here

    Welcome to Fuwanovel! I hope you never find your limit, no matter how long you seek.
  5. Japanese equivalent of notable OELVNs?

    Hah, I wouldn't mind to see EVNs grow in a similar manner. But who would be the Key of the West? Well, I know nothing of old VNs, so I can't contribute to the discussion, but I enjoy the premise. If only me or @Palas could DBZ-style fuse with @kivandopulus for an hour, I'm sure the combined knowledge would effect in a dozen or two of perfect analogies.
  6. Something happened at Sekai Project?

    I'm slightly more disturbed by the fact, if we believe the annoucement, that they got rid of pretty much all their marketing staff, with claims they're not touching the actual translation/development crew (and no indication they're actually moving resources there/expanding the localization team). Marketing was, pretty much, the only thing that worked as intended in Sekai. This plus the fact that people got fired out of the blue, it doesn't look too pretty. Hopefully it's not some kind of disaster in the making, I actually would prefer for Sekai to stay considering their involvement as an EVN publisher.
  7. Something happened at Sekai Project?

    After all, they clearly had excess permanent staff and their projects were all going so smoothly...
  8. What are you playing?

    I've finished reading SoulSet today (another Polish VN, yay!) and I have to say that while I don't have much experience with multi-route mystery, this was definitely among the best ones I've seen in EVN form, definitely on par with Everlasting Summer. The cast is really quite unique and interesting, including the first cross-dressing character I genuinely liked (I mean, he somehow combines a really foul attitude with being absurdly cute - and well, the game provided two, in a way even three "real" yuri routes so I had few resons to complain). The devs also did a cool thing with the romance options, that is even though you need to finish all routes to get to the true ending and every character is romanceable, you can freely choose between romantic and friendship scenarios in all of them. This way, it can be played as a "yuri" or an "otome" - whatever pleases you personally. I only skipped one romance though, as the character is question (Apris) was terribly dull. The mystery itself was... Contrived, to the point I wasn't sure about a few details even at the very end, but it was generally quite satisfying. I like how the game uses "clues", with you keep between playthroughs, to make all paths meaningful and encourage you to go through all the endings, including bad ones. I'm not sure if I would enjoy it without the guide though, there's a lot of choices and ways to screw up in most routes and exploring them blindly mustr take tons of time (obviously, people that don't have to hurry through gamers like I do might have a lot of fun with that). Generally, a very positive experience, and even decently produced (a bit of disconnect between the sprotes and CG artwork was pretty much my onlyu complaint) - highly recommended.
  9. Plk_Lesiak’s Shovelware Adventures: Yume Creations

    Catridges are not so bad, I would warn especially against doing that to DVD drives (radiation) or other ports (electricity). And when it goes to these games... They are among the best-selling OELVNs on Steam, if we can believe the recently-leaked data (especially Aozora Meikyuu and Games&Girls). To be fair, they're mostly dirt-cheap, especially when on sale, could've been included in some bundles too. :>
  10. Birthday thread

    Happy Birthday to You! Sorry for being late...
  11. Hello from Delusional

    You chose the name just to be able to write this everywhere, didn't you? Well, either way, welcome to Fuwanovel!
  12. Looks quite nice! I see thers are in-app purchases in the game and you can buy it chapter by chapter. Is there an option to pay once for full content and how much it costs to unloch everything?
  13. "Your Diary" is coming out

    All the screenshots I've seen gave me the Tricolor Lovestory vibe (that is MTL edited into something vaguely coherent), I might be wrong about that, as I'm not an expert, but I definitely can't really agree that's crucial in this case. I don't really care whether this is a scam or a genuine fuckup, or even whether Hobibox is responsible for this directly or were scammed by a con-artist. The effect is the same (unreadable translation) and the only possible fix is reworking the translation from the ground up. It's also not some indie team trying to make a name for themselves on the VN market, it's a huge freakin' media company and I don't give a shit about their feelings or being "fair" to them, as long as they try to sell crap like this and give half-assed responses on how they are "concerned" about the backlash.
  14. "Your Diary" is coming out

    Even if they hired someone and got scammed it wouldn't mean it's not an edited MTL. It damn sure looks like one and if someone really gave this mess to a well-meaning company, it probably wouldn't be below them to go all Mitch about it.
  15. "Your Diary" is coming out

    This is an important point I think. Next time someone tries to translate Cross Channel, they should do it in Trump-speak. No more problems with that complicated prose and snobbish nuance. "Our club worked on the roof. It was a fantastic roof. We had an antenna there. A tremendous antenna. No one had an antenna as big as ours."
