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?

Clannad is a visual novel done by the Japanese company Key. You might heard of the anime, and perhaps played the fan-translated game already, but here is the official release that was funded with kickstarter. Upgrades include higher graphical fidelity and "Dangopedia" which lists Japanese related terms.

You play as Tomoya Okazaki, an unfortunate shounen, who spends his years in high school seen as a delinquent. One day, he meets Furukawa Nagisa, and our story starts from there.

There has been some discussion on the price of the game (estimated to be 40-50 USD on release), and I actually stand behind their pricing. For one, JP VNs are priced even higher in their own country, and this game is nearly fully voiced (protagonist is not voiced), and clocks in at 1.29 million words.

That's even longer than the entire Harry Potter book series.

There is a viewpoint of it being an "old" visual novel because it was released a long time ago and it should be cheaper, but the VN has never been released before, officially. It's like danganronpa or ace attorney has been out in Japan for years, and after we localize it, it totally should be cheaper because it's "old" already. What kind of logic is that?

Understandably there's a depreciating factor to many things, but if anyone who had played the VN years ago and then want to pass on it for the above reason, that's really unfair.

Not sure if I'm allowed to do this or not but....

For those of you who know how to use Ren'Py and understand how to use the scipting to create your own interface.....

If you're serious about making you're own VN and need an interface, I have one up for auction! You can certainly wait until I have yet another up for auction, but here's the deviation if you want to check it out:

Hello. Thank you for letting me join, everyone!

Now you're kind of like my family. I don't know almost any of you and if I get in trouble, you won't help me, but at least you accepted me as one you, which is nice. :)

Hi everyone! I'm so glad to be accepted ^U^

I'm great with art and story, but the big issue I'm having with my visual novel is the actual programming. I've been using Ren'py. 

I know Novelty is old, but I've wondered if it's still a better option for my needs. so I was hoping to maybe get someone whose used the programs opinion?

Also, if anyone needs an cartoonist to help with their visual novel,  feel free to note me!
