  1. NekoNyan should create a fully accessible "free download" page that includes all 18+ patches, updates, and demos. That way it wouldn't matter where you bought the game.

  2. I'd say my reading/writing level is a bit above N4, but my speaking/listening level is higher. Basically, I'm fine with grammar, but have to look up a lot of kanji. This is why I stick with editing rather than translating. I had to halt my formal studies over a decade ago due to my health, and I've only just been feeling better this last year (I had a couple things hit one after another.) With that said, I'm still dealing with multiple chronic health problems. And, unfortunately, I no longer have the money for or access to Japanese classes.

  3. I don't think I've ever played a bad visual novel, because I'm pretty careful about what I buy. I've played a few mediocre ones, though.

    Figures of Happiness This actually used to be considered one of the good story VN when I first started playing them. Goes to show you how far we've come. It was really bland; that's all there is to say about it.

    Princess Waltz—Again, quite bland. It also lacked separate heroine routes. I still haven't forgiven JAST for choosing to license this over HaruUru.

    Mutiny!!—I take it back; I have played a bad visual novel. Played this one for work. The concept had a lot of potential, but it felt like half the game was missing. It also wasn't my preferred genre, but I can't hold that against it.

    We will only get an official office in the next months:ph34r:

    How about a tour of the office once it gets set up?

    What kinds of posts would you guys like to see in addition to those news/announcement posts?

    I'd love to see interviews with the artists and scenario writers for NekoNyan's titles.

    A "Visual Novel 101" series might be cool too. It could include stuff like:

    • The (Abridged) History of Visual Novels
    • Visual Novel Genres: A Nakige is Not a Nukige
    • Know Your "-dere"

  5. What are your top three favorite visual novels? They don't have to be the three you think are the best, just your three favorites. I wonder what your choices will say about you...



    I'm not usually into chuuni games, but damn if I don't love Fate/stay night. For one thing, it has Rin, who is totally waifu tier. I'm also a huge fan of history and mythology, so I have a field day with all the references in the game. Basically, Fate aimed for my weak spots.



    ...Speaking of weak spots, Hatsuyuki Sakura went straight for the kill with sad girls in snow. I simply cannot resist a good nakige, especially one set in winter. And Saga Planets tossed in a supernatural heroine, too. It makes me wanna「ぴゃー!!」:cuteblush:


    Ever17, the first visual novel I ever completed, way back in 2006. I can't even begin to describe the impact it made on my life. Even if it hadn't set the course for my future career, I'd still love it just as much. Really, the game is a masterpiece. It's the only title I've given a 10 on VNDB. If you like science fiction at all, you need to play this. Shame it's long out of print.

    We don't see that many VNs with a trap protagonist in English.

    I think that's because Otoboku didn't do very well. I'd attribute its lack of success more to the game's age and Caramel Box's art style than having a cross-dressing protagonist, though.

    I've gotta say, even though otokonoko aren't my cup of tea, this game looks awfully cute. :cuteblush:

    I don't really know what morals have to do with homophobic language, but if it offended you, sorry. It was meant more in the lines of "ego-shooters turning people into terrorists" and "anime games turn people into pedphiles", rapelay-scandal and so on. Again, sorry if someone felt attacked.

    "Faggot" is a homophobic slur. Moral douchebaggery probably would have been a better way to phrase it.
