  1. I read on reddit today that Musicus was going to be licenced to Mangagamer and that made me think of this question. Is Mangagamer still relevant with the VN public? I saw them do this project since when I started playing VNs back in 2017 and I was just curious on what people think about the company. With the controversy surrounding the company, I was wondering if they have a place at the table or not. I just want to know what people think.

  2. New here

    Welcome. I hope you enjoy yourself here. If you have questions, you can rely on anyone here.
  3. I know I am late to post one of these, but I thought I would do one anyway. My name is Jardic and I am a writer. I got some things on the back burner of my mind and I dream to have some VNs to share when I am done. I have a ton of ideas for my works and I can always take any ideas you may have to consideration. I'm currently working on some stories I have written last year and I have been thinking about putting them on the net after I get them published. I mainly play VNs now. Before, I would play video games and be done with them. I put down the controller and started writing when I was in high school and I never looked back since. I still play games on my pc, but not as much anymore. My love for VNs happened 3 years ago and I got into them by boredom from playing video games. I found my calling from this medium and I have written a lot of stories that my be a base for VNs. I found purpose through them and I have been happier the past three years than the time before finding VNs. I hope you all can learn a few things from me and I want to learn a few things from you guys. If you guys are wondering, I am always on here, so if you want to chat, I am here. So take care and i will be wandering this place called the net. Take care.
  4. What are you playing?

    I have been rereading the Majikoi series lately in my spare time. I have enjoyed it the first go round, but I haven't finished it since I finished Momoyo's route. I think the game is good, but I enjoyed it more with a good cup of warm sake. I have also been playing Senren Banka a lot as well, but I haven't played this one since release day and I got bored after a few chapters. I normally play these games when I have time, but i have been in a gaming rut and I have been waiting for some new titles to come out. Maybe I need to get something for me to learn Japanese so i can play some of the untranslated games.
  5. I can agree that stories can be excellent when the initial premise is resolved or dealt with. That progress can help a story along or hinder it depending on anyone's point of view. However, it can be a problem if they progress too far in my opinion. I may be wrong, but some stories run far away from the concept it started on, that it isn't the same story anymore. I can't think of any examples right now, but I know some that have done this and it failed on them. But if done right, it is awesome.

    Thanks @littleshogun I will remember that. I follow your blog and I am a fan. So good luck yourself.
  7. VNs Mainstream or Niche

    I have noticed in the past few years that visual novels are flying under the radar for most game developers in the west but I have to ask this. Are visual novels going to hit mainstream or are they going to remain a niche forever. I hope for the former, because their are a lot of good writers in visual novel genre that have made a lot of good stories that need to be told. I believe they are good for indie developers due to them being cheaper to produce than a walking simulator and a horror game sometimes. I don't know if people will see what i am talking about, but those who do, What is you opinion on visual novel medium. Is it a hidden gem to go mainstream or a thing that will go away in a few years.
  8. Good PSA, but correct me if i am wrong, but I have noticed some porn sites doing streams of VNs on their websites. PHub being one of them. I'm surprised no one thought of doing that.
  9. VNs Mainstream or Niche

    I can see that. It's a mixed bag for some games. I knew some games make the list like the Zero time series and like you said Ace Attorney, but some RPGs make that list as well sometimes and that really confuses me. I know comparing Persona to Grisasa is a stretch, and others would think I'm crazy for making that comparison. From the earlier comments I received, I got my answer to this question. I don't know half of what this medium is right now, but I thought if I got some input, that would be a start. It is something worth discussing and I got more research on the matter Thanks everyone.
  10. VNs Mainstream or Niche

    @Plk_Lesiak that is what made me think that the VN industry was picking up in the first place. I have noticed since Persona 5 came out and has been getting momentum that I thought that VNs were gaining ground. I have noticed it for a while now and I don't know if what I said even qualifies as VN talk anymore. Also, if you are wondering. I don't know if Persona 5 even qualifies as a VN with as much gameplay it has. Someone told me it partly was and that is where I got this idea.
  11. Musicus: Is this or Mangagamer still relevant

    Thank you for the input you three. I didn't know what was going on and I wanted to be sure that they were still at the table with there heads on straight. I didn't want to see them go down the rabbit hole Sekai went down. I wasn't doing this to put Mangagamer down. I just thought something was wrong. I didn't mean to cause drama if I did.
  12. Hello All You Beautiful People

    I have enjoyed this community since I started back in 2017 and I haven't been actively started posting until now since I was trying to get a feel for the community for a while. I like it here a lot, Thanks @Plk_Lesiak
  13. What are you playing?

    That is how I felt about the series. I never played it, but I know what happened from people on discord. They talk a lot about it and i agree on the soundtrack. It was awesome. It was only a patch, but I would recommend looking on a pirate website for this. I do have a link to the actual patch if you want it. Here is the link to the patch for the game. https://www.witch-hunt.com/stage_rgd4.html
  14. VNs Mainstream or Niche

    At least I tried to answer the question. I couldn't follow what you were saying since I didn't understand what you were saying. Sorry if I was slow. I don't know, and correct me if I am wrong. do all of those VNs mentions have RPG elements in them?
  15. What are you listening to right now?

    I actually heard this one on my friends mixtape. He has the taste of a dead mouse. Good song though
  16. Captivating novels like Umineko

    It's fine. some of us were like that at some point. I may be wrong here, but there are not that many good examples of anime that is better than the source material. The only one I can think of is Stein Gate. I watched it before I read the novel and I liked it. I don't watch tv much, but I follow the manga and news from certain shows a lot.
  17. A Sky Full of Stars - +18 Restoration

    Don't worry about it. I was just giving ideas out. Also, good luck
  18. Gamer Girls in Visual Novels

    The sister from Wagamama High Spec is a serious gamer. I cant think of her name right now, but I know she is one.
  19. Captivating novels like Umineko

    This is why This is why I don't watch the anime based on a VN a lot. I just avoid them unless it is recommended to do so. In my case, it's like the .hack series where watching the show was recommended when playing the games.
  20. A Sky Full of Stars - +18 Restoration

    @Novel21 If you know @Infernoplex, why not ask him/her to do a spreadsheet to show progress like what @eplipswich did with his project. Then most people will stop asking questions about it.
  21. Hello All You Beautiful People

    Thanks. I just hope I can get them finished and find some people that can help me make it later. I'm not artistic with art at all, but I am with words.
  22. Hello All You Beautiful People

    I actually got into VNs while looking for more games to play. I came across Nutaku when I was looking for games to play and I played there for a month. But instead of giving up, I found Mangagamer and JAST and purchased a few games and I was blown away by the quality of the games given. I got into them real quick after i found those two sites. VNs gave me a purpose to do something and I thank them for giving me a new thing to write about. As for the VN that got me into writing them. It was Katawa Shoujo. I like the story a lot and the charaters felt genuine to me for something that was being played for free. I thought if they could do it, why couldn't I.
  23. Captivating novels like Umineko

    Have you tried the first two games in the When They Cry series. The Higurashi series of games. They were the first two in the series and if you want the full story for this series.
  24. VNs Mainstream or Niche

    @onorubThe modern VN started with YU-NO (the 1996 original, not the remake.) according to sources I found. Nintendo in the 2000's credited it for making the genre popular in the first place. It started back in 1983 with Portopia Serial Murder Case if you were curious.
  25. Is there a font which is like Grisaia?

    The link below is a font I found that may be close to what your looking for. The link is for the font the is in title screen. If you want the one that is used in the VN itself, check the settings of the game or in the game files. https://www.fontzillion.com/fonts/apostrophic-labs/mary-jane?utm_source=fontsquirrel.com&utm_medium=matcherator_link&utm_campaign=maryjane
