    They are gonna do Snow Presents, Fine Days and Cocoro Function too at some point (maybe even the FD for Cocoro Function), provided they don't go bankrupt or something. Good news for some people I guess.

    I have no idea.
    I, for one, am looking forward to this, provided the translation is better than Cross Channel or the main game and they keep the censorship at the same level as A Sky Full of Stars at worst.

    If that's the case, try Season of Sakura, Nocturnal Illusion or YU-NO. (With Season of Sakura, make sure to get DOS version and run it inside DOSBox.) Pixel-art classics (and wonderful character designs - taken straight from '90s anime). Three Sisters Story is on the same engine as Season of Sakura, but it isn't as good storywise.
    Season of Sakura:

    Three Sisters Story:

    Nocturnal Illusion:

    "One" doesn't look as good as Kanon, but I think I'll enjoy it nevertheless. Art style is similar, but it uses different engine, so for example, sprites don't have any smoothing on them, so the edges are quite pixellated. Also, backgrounds are of poorer quality. Actually, with Kanon they made significant visual progress.
    One's visuals look like something transitional between old pixel-art and modern style.

    Translation got up to around 900 lines this week. Really proud of the guys for keeping this rate up. The second pass edit for the prologue patch should be done soon enough and the patch itself will ideally be out in the very near future, so look out for that.
    We are still looking for a permanent TLC to work on this project. Please PM me if you're interested in working as a TLC for this project.
    That's all for this week. See you all later.

    Yesterday (or rather today around 2AM) I finished AIR
    Wow, that was a ride...
    First is "Dream" arc - something like "School" in Clannad. I played in the order suggested by @Flutterz's walkthrough - Misuzu, Kano and then Minagi. There are some other walkthroughs that suggest reversed order (meaning leaving Misuzu for the last playthrough). Actually both approaches make sense. Since Kano's and Minagi's stories can be considered side-stories, and Misuzu is main character, playing her route last makes sense story-wise. OTOH, reading it first gives game a structure somewhat similar to LittleBusters
    While Misuzu is main character of whole VN, and I love her, the best route of Dream arc is Minagi's. Minagi is lovely, first impression somewhat similar to Kotomi from Clannad. Michiru was annoying at first, but as I got deeper into the story, I grew fond of her as well. And the ending of this route hits hard with feels...
    This route also has interesting quirk, because
    Kano's route is significantly weaker, but still enjoyable, and she was very likeable character for me as well.
    Misuzu is great, but her route serves mostly as introduction for later arcs.
    After completing three heroine's routes, there's "Summer" arc. It has no choices, and gives backstory for "Girl in the sky" and her connection to Yukito. It was good, packed both with comedy and feels. Also, it features another VA I really like (first being Aya Hisakawa as Haruko) - Kikuko Inoue as Uraha.
    Then comes "AIR" arc - something like "Refrain" or "After Story". Main heroines of this part are Misuzu and Haruko. It was great, but it hits right into the feels many times, as its very bittersweet. At the end, I cried my eyes out
    There are some glimpses of hope
    but overally, from 4 KEY VNs I read (Kanon, AIR, Clannad and LB!) this is definitely the saddest one, without clear happy ending provided by KeyMagicTM (like Clannad After Story's final run or LB's "it's not enough!").
    I'm completely used to Key's art style, so no complaints here, and backgrounds are actually really good. Music was good too.
    I tried both English patches (WinterConfetti's and GaoGao's), and finally switched to the former (with All-Ages addon from Takafumi). Both have their share of problems, but they aren't game breaking, so just pick your poison
    Great emotional ride, and it's for me right up there with Clannad and LB. 9/10

    adamstan reacted to Corrupted in Pick My Next VN   
    I just played all of Planetarian in one sitting. My thoughts:
     
    This has helped me refine my goals, here. I want VNs that make me do some or all of the following:
    1. Make me cry.
    2. Make me daw with lovable flirtation.
    3. Get me pumped or emotional with awesome soundtracks.

    I don't want to sacrifice quality for the sake of hentai scenes. I certainly enjoy hentai scenes, but I'd rather have no hentai scenes than bad ones that break my immersion. I think that means I want Nakige - not Nukige, not Moege. I have a preference for robots/AI, loli, yandere/loyalty, jealousy, and imoutos, but if I love a personality of a characther that's all that matters (I'll take Ramius's unattractive fatass from Evenicle any day because she's so fucking precious, appreciative, and loyal). 
    If I need to fap, I'm just going to go to "Professor Dave's Masterbation Station". *Opens it up* (Wait why is there a new scene here that wasn't there before?!)
    Grisaia really got on my nerves sometimes by dragging on and being too slow, but the more I think back on it the more fondly I remember it. It really was one hell of a complete experience.
    Well, I don't think I'm going to make another poll so soon - I'm going to start up second place, Ever17, instead. By the time I finish that, then perhaps enough time has passed that I won't feel guilty making another poll thread from scratch. Thank you for putting up with all my spam, ya'lls input is making my life better :>.

    Well, since it is really short, I just read Planetarian
    You were right @Flutterz, it is good. But so sad again, even more so than AIR ending... It reminded me of Ame's ending from Dal Segno. Both of these robot/AI heroines became almost human by the end of the story. And the track "Perfectly Human" that played during final scenes was so haunting... It was somewhat similar to the song that played during Dream World sequences in Clannad.
    The protagonist had some nice character development.
    BTW - it seems that the planetarium in Miagete (and especially its projector) was inspired by this story.
    To sum it up - great story, packed with feels, definitely recommended - 8.5/10

    adamstan reacted to NowItsAngeTime in Is Princess Evangile worth it?   
    Haven't started MMM yet but I think Evangile is an above average visual novel. Even in the common route, stuff happens like the MC having to get accepted by the student body instead of being instant harem boy to literally everyone.
    There's memorable enough drama in the common and each route and like people say, characters are very much still relevant even when it's not their route.

    I didn't play Hoshimemo, so I don't know how they compare, however as for imouto routes in general (from the VNs I've read), there is one in WagaHigh and SakuSaku.

    I was also convinced it didn't have honorifics, until I noticed it did. They're rare since almost nobody actually uses them.
    Yuzuyu doesn't bother with them, the guys don't use them, Tomomi prefers nicknames... They're just rare all around.

    I know. It's a classic and I have read some of it. My point is that I haven't seen any public bashing of Agatha Christie books for being improper English even though they contain something like this.
