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?
This group now has open membership. Simply click the join button above!

How do I contribute art to the group?

Initial thoughts.

I first took a look at the artist's profile MIZUSHIMA Sorahiko on google, www.mangaupdates.com/authors.h…, and there were a bevy of works under his belt, inclusive of titles that are for adults only.

Looking at the *cough* works that I could find on the interwebs, I think that the art factor is going to be adequate and aesthetically clean in nature.

But since this VN is all-ages, I doubt there will be any "eye-candy" moments so that should be kind of a disappointment to some, especially if they look up this artist's profile.

Next up is the Scriptwriter. This Fujimura Michiho, had even less of a profile than the above artist. Her signature work as stated in the kickstarter website, is not a light novel but a real novel with a photograph slapped onto it.

The very few reviews that it had were positive towards this book, with comments of how the novel was easy to read due to the meticulous style it was written in.

Something like that. I just took a glance at a review and the overall score

www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%81%B5-4-1…

bookmeter.com/b/4591142442

And many other seasoned developers behind this game.

As for the story itself, Neuroscience X Genetics X Sci-fi future, sounds like a whole great deal of terminology. I think that the script writer was a great choice, because it's very easy to get bored and distracted with all the jargon that could happen here.

I will admit that the premise of this story doesn't interest me. Sounds like a normal dude (protagonist) gets involved with the upper echelons of society, being useless for 70-80% of the game because of his "normalcy" while all them elites duke it off their genes.

It's just... huh.

The interesting factor lies in the depths of that memory searching, probably, but the plot itself feels kind of heavy. Not really my cup of tea, especially when there's the entire cast of teenagers + 1 young adult at 22 (nooo teen angst, please...?)

Of course, obligatory money for translated Japanese VNs... So I'll probably have to support this. I need to sit on this and think for a while.

Hello!
I am making a dating simulator for Your Favorite Martian using a wonderful program known as VisualNovelty.

I have run into one huge problem-
Importing a new character.

How do I do this?!
I have created many transparent images that make up poses and emotions of a character, Benatar, but I can't find out how to introduce him into the program as an actor. I have searched through what seems like the entirety of the internet looking for an answer.

Can you help?
Thank you so much!
