  1. I haven't read many EVNs, but of the ones I have read there are two that I can confidently say I have primarily positive feelings towards (well, three actually, but Juniper's Knot is already on the list so I'm not counting that one). Cooking Companions is one of those horror VNs that has a bright and happy exterior. In general I find that style interesting but usually poorly executed; for this one though, I feel the execution is solid. The story feels pretty nonsensical early on, but by the end it perfectly walks the line of explaining enough for the story to make sense without explaining so much that it loses all sense of mystery. https://vndb.org/v28079 And of course my favorite EVN is Sucker for Love: First Date. In this novel Eldritch horrors are anime girls, you can date them and help them end reality. Despite it's dumb premise, this novel is both humorous and genuinely scary; it transitions between comedy and horror seamlessly and it absolutely nails both genres. https://vndb.org/v30662
  2. Corpse Party: played it multiple times before I even really got into VNs because it's a pretty good horror game which frankly there aren't many of. Grisaia no Kajitsu: read the 18+ version first, skipped every h-scene cause they were bad, read the 17+ version after finishing the series, didn't like that they cut non h content from it. To this day I'm not sure which version I like more. Island: got a friend to read it years after I did, decided to reread it since there's a lot going on in that novel and I wouldn't be able to hold a conversation about it without a refresher. Dangrope 1 and most of 2: played them and had mixed feelings, was present for irl friends playing them as my mixed feelings turned to mostly negative feelings. Ace Attorney 1: It's a good game with exactly four cases and no fifth case, would replay again. 999: Played it on my own, liked it, made my friends play it while I watched. Some of VLR: Played it, hated it, but my friends finished 999 so they tried to play it (I think we only got through like two play sessions before they bailed). Cooking Companions: Haven't replayed it yet, but I liked it and it got an update a while back and it's October right now so I'll almost definitely replay it before the end of the month.
  3. Eyyy. I've been looking forward to this one for a long time. That said, really, the month after October? Why would they do this, I'm already burning out on horror.
  4. Idk, I think I'd feel uncomfortable driving a car with anime drawi-... is that a Subahibi car? I'll take your entire stock!
  5. Any recommendations for VNs written by them? The only one I've tried so far is Higurashi which left me with a bad impression. I would like to be hyped for the new Silent Hill rather than feel disinterested due to the writer.
  6. I never thought about it like that before, but now that you mention it both Meikyuu and Rakuen do kinda seem more like fandiscs than actual sequels.
  7. This is the first I'm hearing of it, so I appreciate that you posted it.
  8. I picked Gnosia up a few months ago since it sounded interesting but never actually started it, thinking it was probably more interesting in concept than in execution. Given these reviews, I think I'll have to dig through my Switch library and give it a try.
  9. Sweet, I actually backed the kickstarter for that one, so glad to hear to it came out well. It's probably what I'm going to read when I finish Hatsumira.
  10. It's probably not quite what you're looking for, but iirc Cooking Companions draws inspiration from Slavic Mythology. https://vndb.org/v28079
  11. If you haven't read the Devil on G String yet, then I've got a pretty good suggestion for you. https://vndb.org/v211
  12. If I worded any of that poorly or you have other questions, let me know. I read the novel a second time a few months back, so it's still pretty fresh in my mind.
  13. I can't think of any VN take I've ever heard that I agree with more than Higurashi having pacing issues. I started Higurashi back in February of 2018 and have been on and off slowly picking away at it since. Almost four years later and currently I'm just a couple hours into Tatarigoroshi because I just can't subject myself to that much nothing for long periods of time. I really liked the last couple hours of Onikakushi and I wish there was more of that.
