Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

"Fuwanovel, I've come to bargain." Looking for time loop VNs.

Recommended Posts

I've search it on VNDB but I found few examples in English. The story mainly revolves around protagonists trying trial and error method until they escape more than one time loop like Groundhog Day.

Here's a pretty good list of different media with time loops, and it includes several VN's (though this is actually a spoiler for some).

VNs in this list:

Spoiler

Yu-No

Higurashi

Cross Channel

Zanmataisei Demonbane

Steins Gate

Maybe there's not that many VNs on that VNDB list, but if you didn't read Higurashi yet, that can keep you busy for a few months and is probably one of the best uses of the theme.

One VN that wasn't listed there that I strongly recommend is SoulSet. Quite a neat EVN.

Wow... It seems that only after learning about this game and the existence of this tag I truly understood the depth of Japanese virgin fetish. :wahaha:

I would, but the two VNs I would recommend for this would just be spoiling that they have time loops.

I'm not worried about spoilers but you could hide it in spoiler link.

The one that isn't a spoiler:

- Steins Gate

The ones that are spoilers:

Spoiler

Cross Channel

Muv Luv Unlimited / Muv Luv Alternative (though it isn't the protagonist's will)

Higurashi

Demonbane

Not a VN, but All You Need is Kill is also another piece of work involving time-loops.

(Spoilers)

I assume that no one's suggested this on account of the fact that it's technically not a time loop, however as far as narrative structure is concerned it is effectively the same so I'm going to suggest it anyways: Zero Escape: 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors .  To a lesser extent, the sequels fit this as well.  While I personally don't recommend the sequels, I know plenty of people do.
