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?
Please take a look at the guidelines here!

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!

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!
