Welcome!

WELCOME!

Hi! This is a group for everyone and anyone who loves visual novel games. It's still a fledgling group, so expect more revisions and additions in the future.



What's a visual novel?
A VN (sometimes called ADV, or adventure) is a text-based game. It's basically a novel with pretty CG art and amazing seiyuu voice actors who read the lines for the characters.

There are published VNs for PC/PS2/PSP/DS/etc. as well as doujin VNs based on fandom. Original VNs are also produced.

Wiki: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_n…

Who is this club for?
-Anyone who likes VNs.
-Anyone who is making a VN.

What is this club NOT for?
-Any art that is a blatant copy/trace of an existing artwork.
-Fanart of random anime/manga/etc. unrelated to VNs. Anime/manga based off of VNs are okay. (This doesn't go the other way, because if it did, we'd include ALL fandom, which is not the point of this club!)
-Getting popular. Please do not spam your entire gallery to "get more exposure." That is not the purpose of this club!
-Trolls and drama-makers.

So, how do I join as a member?

Hey everyone,

In an effort to enliven the group, we'd love to bring more VN reviewers and enthusiasts on board!

If you're at all interested in posting blog entries about VNs (reviews, news, coming up, even promoting really good original VNs), just send us a note telling us what you hope to do! :)

Best,
Blizz

Hello!  I was just wondering if anyone had the name or account of the artist or who drew the background for the group icon?  It's really nice, and I was curious.

Hey peeps!

My friends are creating a really fantastic sci fi visual novel called Orion. The art is absolutely fantastic! But it won't get made unless their kickstarter gets funded and they are three days away from the deadline!!! Please check it out and if you like what you see, contribute! Thank you very much! Here is a link to the kickstarter page and the demo download:www.kickstarter.com/projects/6…

Hi there!

I'm in the making of a visual novel and I'm currently looking for some artists who can draw characters and backgrounds. The project is rather small as the engine is home-brew. But don't underestimate the workload.

If I didn't scare you away yet, please send me a note. (And yes it's paid).

Hey Folks, 

I'll be doing some LSing of Live2D. A pretty neat animation tool. You can find it here:

Hey Guys! I've been trying to come up with a way to both give sneak peeks at our upcoming Visual Novel AND showcase a live-streaming event. I decided to try and combine the two, without giving away TOO much information and host some Q&A to help those wanting to start or who have started a VN.

Essentially these sessions will consist of me brainstorming and showing you idea points that I will later evolve, off screen, into detailed game mechanics (can't spoil the game completely). I think it could be a really fun, interactive, and educational experience. Let me know what you guys think!

The only thing I'm kinda confused on now, where to livestream from, Youtube? Googlehangouts? Anyone got prefs?

Hey folks! Thanks for letting us join this group! I look forward to contributing and sharing whatever information I can! Our VN is currently in development but soon we'll be putting code and artwork together for some screenies and in-house demos.

If you guys need any advice or want to ask some questions regarding game development, I'll offer whatever information I can. (We're a first time developer so its not much advice :P (Lick))

Opinion question!

Do people enjoy playing long visual novels? Or would you rather have them short and sweet?

Thanks for replies!
