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.


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?
Please take a look at the guidelines here!


-Monthly featured VNs?
-User VN creation tool introductions?
-Amazing VN reviews?
-Japanese translation/help/commonly used phrases?

Note the group! ^___^

Random from Favourites


So I was kind of twiddling my thumbs over when to write a new post.

The past month has been absolutely miserable for me at work because everyone in the company don't seem to care enough what goes on in IT administration.

I'm leaving so I can go back to study.

I have given my notice to quit at the end of this month and I rushed to do some coding by overworking everyday, so that the company can still function without me. All it needs is someone to do data entry and maybe work out. Maybe.

I found out on that fateful day, all of them don't care about/want to learn what I do.

Future Projects

Well in any case, I have a few projects that I want to do at the start of next month. I'll post more details later, but fans of reading web novels will probably be pleased.

Past updates

During my spare time I mostly TLed the entire visual novel's route for a character. From what I saw, there's still quite a bit left because another character hasn't been TLed yet, so I don't expect a release anytime soon. Maybe Christmas?

Current Updates

Muv Luv

Let's see... Well first is

Muv Luv Kickstarter

The splitting of product choices is quite weird.

$25 - First two Muv-Luv games.
$35 - Only Muv-Luv alternative
$60 - All 3 games.

So my first question would be, okay, will there be R18 scenes? Nope, it's not mentioned. That's kind of understandable, because Kickstarter probably doesn't agree with that. In the case of Grisaia by Sekai, they offer their +18 game through their own platform (as stated in…)

Since the kickstarter mentioned that one would be able to get the game through their website, that should be of no particular issue. If you *cough* had played this game before from somewhere in the past, there is no excuse not to support this, right?

One particular thing that I absolutely like about the stretch goals is the android support, but I'm not sure how's vita going to work out since I don't own that.

With regards to rewards past $60, there's a plushie and two plastic figure models, but these are really for the hardcore fans. You even have pillow cases of the in-game girls (heck the photos have them in uniform and not a sexy outfit) for 400 whopping dollars and a jacket for 500 monies. Sheesh. I know you want support, but are you sure you're not fleecing us instead of rewarding your fans? I'm surprised you didn't do up a boy pillow case to go after the ladies' wallets too.

There's also a contest by them where you can win a trip for two to Japan by checking their kickstarter, visiting their facebook and retweeting.

Witch boy Magical Piece…


You had me speechless for a few {enter}s. Let me just flat out state what is wrong with this game.

1) BL game without R18 content.

Let's just put it this way.

I might be wrong, but fans of this particular genre want to see something like this. Probably. Non R18 content games? Hah hah.

2) Guys turning into trap witches or something.

Just this alone makes my head spin.

3) What sort of plot can you do with this?

Only from Japan.

4) Who are you?

So who's the creator and developer of Witch Boy? The only mention of the developer, and I quote

"With the help of Rosemary House, we wish to release the most complete version of Witch boy Magical piece that we can offer, along with lots of rewards for backers! "

With the help of Rosemary House? There's not even one bit of information on the creator/developers. Who is/are the artist/s? Who are the voice actors? Have the developers work on another game before?

5) A mobile game to PC?

Instead of getting some high quality, well known BL game to port over, you got a mobile game? A frigging mobile game that's gated with time for story progression? Even if this particular VN is somehow well done and well received, you should have slapped it all over the place on how Japan is gushing all over this title to get some credibility.

Right now I'm skeptical and the entire thing reeks of laziness on the advertising part. At the very least, Sekaiproject should poll the crowd to see if they want this title to be ported over and create a functional demo to at least get some feedback from.

Concerning VN reviews from me

Because of my packed schedule, I will have to hold off on reviewing VNs until further notice.
Not so long ago, sekaiproject announced that there would be a CD-check (or is it DVD-check?) implemented on the DVD copy, and I thought "Wait, you didn't ask what the fans wanted?".

I was considering whether I should make a post here (to rant about it), but I felt that was too personal and it wasn't good manners if I didn't have time to research about DRM affairs across the other companies. For example, I don't know if there's DRM installed in a physical copy steins;gate by Jast USA, and I singled out Sekaiproject for censure.

But now, that does not matter, because Sekaiproject announced that they had gathered the community's feedback (which is probably a resounding NO) and discussed with VisualArts on this issue.

Clannad's physical copies are now DRM-FREE.

I must say I am super pleased. Although, my newest laptop does not have a DVD-reader... well, I'll see how it goes when I receive my game. Clannad's estimated release date was October 2015, not sure if that has changed...

I'm going to start updating more at the end of this month, some exciting news from me I hope.

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!

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!
