And here comes the second part of my retrospective! In two weeks, we'll move on to this years event and all the glorious yuri VN content it delivered. :3

Refrigerators, you say? If they included desperate, late-night dates or an overly-clingy protagonist, I see some potential for symbolism there. Probably not what the authors were going for though. :p

Nah, not on purpose, it's not a machine translation either. Looks like something done by a Japanese person with a rather limited grasp of English language - not the first time this happens when a JP developer tries to expand overseas without a professional localization company.

Well, there were earlier h-RPGs with extremely similar mechanics to those in DMC, so I didn't feel it would be fair to bash WC for ripping it off. If these allegations are true though, it's on another level entirely. 0.o

[2/2] And while I would normally be hesitant to say such a thing, in this case, art by and music by are just good enough to make the game worth trying out. And there are things to enjoy there beyond those...

[1/2] [Repost] Sakura Dungeon is such an interesting example of what was capable of in those rare moments when they actually tried. Something we'll probably never see again, but is always a bit nostalgic to go back too (and, genuinely fun to play through).

I'm so confused... I think I have to start with rule #1, not rule #26. :(

I've noticed today that my Yuri Game Jam coverage involves ~35% of my time spent reading VNs, ~15% writing about them and the other 50% researching stuff online and creating VNDB entries to satisfy my obnoxious pedantry. Good thing that I gave myself a few weeks to do this.. '^^

Although, Katie, please change that dialogue box animation in the next version. It's sooo distracting. :s

Finally got the time to start going through this year's VNs and ' Starship XO turned out to be a really charming little game. Some really cool characters and art there, highly recommended if you're not scared of queer themes. ^^

Also, if you played the game already, I'd be super-interested in hearing your thoughts about it. Was the VN just not for me? Is this kind of super-tame storytelling something people want more from VNs? :)

's Crystalline is definitely a visual spectacle, but also turned out to be one of the most ambivalent games I've played this year, especially when it goes to its storytelling. Check out why by reading my review!

AIRIS was the one that I had in mind (I reviewed it in the past and had another conversation about its disappearence today), but I know at least one other case of a relatively well-known freeware VN that became virtually impossible to find, so the question is broader than that :)

[Repost] When I'm trying to think of an EVN with a unique feel to it, 's A Little Lily Princess is always one of my first picks. Hopefully, my significantly reworked review does this excellent little game justice. :)

Still, it's not even something I would necessarily want to do (or have a strong opinion on), I was just curious how VN creators feel about it. It's very much in this grey zone that can rarely even be discussed outside of very niche/obscure games that aren't widely circulated.

Well, I think their intention was pretty clear when they literally removed every possible channel of downloading the game. ;) Plus, AFAIK, with freeware stuff, in most cases the licence don't prevent you from sharing it legally, so it's more about "should" than "need".

Well, abandonware is usually used for old games that were simply forgotten by the IP owner or even have unclear status. I refer to games whose authors actively tried to remove from the web... Like with you and certain comics you made in the past. ;)

The story is, there's an interesting freeware otome that was eradicated from the web by dev team's founder after the collective had a falling out. Do you find acceptable to share such a game publicly (no DRM is involved)? I'm honestly curious about devs' perspective on this. :)

Is publicly sharing a freeware game that was deleted by its author acceptable?
