English doujin visual novels

Unread postby miszou » April 26th, 2007, 7:09 am

Are there any English created doujin visual novels?

Since there are so many doujin groups outside Japan, I wondered if any of them maybe made a visual novel, or maybe a Japanese group that decided to make one in English (although that chance seems a lot slimmer XD).

Anyone knows of a English circle that's involved with visual novels? Or an English doujin visual novel?

I don't know about english visual creator, but somes japanese has been released in USA, but i think you already know about that.
If you are interested i can make you a list of the ones i found... but they aren't so many and a lot are just pr0n games but there are somes goods in my mind :).

But it seems to me i have heard about an english group that have released an Visual Novel maker. It like the RPG maker Program. I think you could found totally english novels made by fan but personnaly i dont expect a great quality of theses games if it's like the RPG Maker community which really a few goods games when i was using it.

There are many so-called Original English Language visual novels, but out of the few I've dared to play I personally found only one that offered a story of quality, namely the Echoes of Thunder demo. The best place to start is http://renai.us/ , it has a decent number of OELs ready for download and they host the Lemma Soft Forums which are the place to be where OELs are concerned.

Edit: The Blade Engine is probably the worst example of VN engines supporting English... Ren'Py is much better. Heck, even ONScripter is better! O_o

Ah tnx :D If I have some time I can just try out a few.

Like you said, I don't suspect them to be that good, but I'm curious to some fan made VN's.

If anyone has some good experience with at least one (echoes of thunder note ^^) let me know :]

Damn, you beat me to saying it.

Don't know of any western-world makers though.

Actually, I'm in the pre-planning stages of creating one. Does that count?

well let me know if you have more info about your project ;) I'd be happy to read about it :]

I was thinking that maybe in a few years I want to write a story for one, maybe :] As for now I'd just like to observe lot's of work, professional and amateur ^^. When I get back home finally, I'd have some time (or rather, a pc) to play trough the ones that interest me :]

Well, considering it's actually a bit further along now *thanks to my co-leader who's really more of a leader than I am's initiative in setting a deadline* I guess it won't be too embarrassing to post it now.

Two things: Please do not talk about how this is going to take a lot of work. I know that.
Secondly, I will not reveal what the TH's part of the title means.

But yeah, if you were wondering, you can now see for yourself.

I searched the site you posted and, DAMN, the games there have some of the ugliest drawing in history.

Only group I know of is http://abstractnonsense.info/?page_id=7. They're nothing impressive, only know about them because they're taking on Damaged Goods.
