  1. Hiya guys! Been a while since I posted anything in general chat but I figured I'd ask around for some good visual novels!

    Just a note here, I personally love murder/mystery ones, and anything that has a good branching paths or large numbers of routes will interest me. It'd help if it was mainly on PC and in English (or has an English Patch)

    A few of the ones I've played before are Ghost Trick, All Phoenix Wright Games, Zero Escape, 999, Dangan Ronpa (1+2) Those sort of sum up my general favorites. My all time favorite is Steins;Gate (Played Chaos Head didnt like it very much, it got too grim too fast and had little in the way of victory or happiness) I'm currently playing Kara no Shoujo and it's working quite well for my tastes.

    I've tried getting a few of the Ever17 series but I've failed (You cant legally get a few of them anymore and the downloads I've tried didnt work D:)

    So ya, if you guys have recommendations hit me with them! (Sexual Content or Not doesnt matter honestly.)

  2. Lucy - The Eternity She Wished For
    Real tearjerker and a fine good read.

    Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
    Everyone ought to know this one by now.

    Katawa Shoujo
    Depressing, hilarious, insightful, and with beautiful artwork. Could not recommend more.

    Also you have great taste in visual novels. ^_^

  3. Muv Luv Alternative is my favourite sci-fi VN. Shikkoku no Sharnoth, and Kindred Spirits on the Roof are also pretty great. I'm playing Kara no Shoujo 2 now, but it's very slowpaced. Maybe you should check out VNDB if you haven't, since it has information about VNs.

  4. Good suggestions all around, though I tried using VNDB it just...doesnt really work out for me for some reason, like it feels too...complicated? Its a good reference but it feels like whatever I try and search it doesnt seem to narrow it down good enough for me XD (Maybe I'm just a super picky bastard)

  5. Gonna offer three of my favorite VNs with increasing rate of grim-darkness.

    Nekopara Vol 1 & 2: Light and fluffy romance Neko VN. Authored by the famous artist Sayori. Get the Original (18+) version.

    Aiyoku no Eustia: RPG-esque fantasy epic quest, coming of age, chosen ones, that kind of thing. Made by August

    Saya no Uta: My personal favorite. A dark psychological horror VN which will make you question the very definition of humanity and sentience. Published by Nitro+, Written by Gen Urobuchi of Fate/Zero, Madoka Magica, etc.

  17. "Grisaia no Kajitsu". That one is... Well, it's awesome and all, but damn, there are times when it gets really fucked up. I'm not sure how to adequately describe it... Anyways, it's worth at least a look.
