Hello everybody, I need a comfy place to talk about VNs. /vn/ on 4chan is filled with literal pedos who only talk about eroge, and I don't like Reddit's format enough to use r/visualnovels. So what have you all been reading lately? What are some great games that we've been missing out on?

i dont usually read vns(not because i dont like them, i dont have any motivation to), but i really liked dysfunctional systems and jupiters knot. idk if its cause im not used to the genre or whatever, but i dont care. the prequel to DS sucks though, im looking forward to the actual sequel

Jupiter's knot looks pretty neat, I'll check that one out.

I haven't read a VN in years, but recently felt the urge to dive into one again. My last pick was Rewrite and I really enjoyed it, even though I'm not that much into urban fantasy.

i am not super into vns but i loved narcissu a lot. tried the sequel but i guess it just felt like the original self-contained story was perfect as-is so i didnt bother finishing it.

i dont know if they count but im a big fan of the hotel dusk games and zero escape series too.

I honestly preferred Side 2nd. It didn't make me cry like OG Narcissu did but was a better story overall. To each their own though.

Juniper's Knot is a great little game, really good for a Western release. Love the music.

Still haven't read Narcissu, gosh, how useless…

I'm currently playing Karakara, which is another short one (4-6 hours I think). Light and silly but well-grounded, the tone starts to shift about halfway through. I'm enjoying it and interested to see where it will go. Also fully voice acted + has an option for both English and Japanese subtitles, which is a plus for my language studies.

You can pick it up for a dollar in this week's Humble Bundle along with a bunch of other light distractions. 18+ scenes require a separate purchase on Denpasoft, bought them on sale out of curiosity but I think they detract from the story.

I'm currently reading Higurashi.
It's a bit strange, because in the past few years MangaGamer have released new translations for most (but not all, yet) chapters, which is supposedly the best way to read it. I've checked out both translations, and while the new is definitely better, there are still infrequent errors, like "strawberryt", "an classroom" and "gamering attention" instead of garnering attention. In neither translation do errors bother me, the writing is stellar, but it's strange to pick between which one you prefer now.
Otherwise, this is the comfiest horror I've experienced. Normally horror is treated all about lots of pressure on the reader, but this one spends lots of time getting you comfy and settled in, albeit to pull the rug out from under your feet later.
I'm not sure if that makes it sushiworthy. Horror is inherently uncomfy, but at the same time it can be very cosy too.

That looks interesting. I've heard Kira Kira is good too, about girls forming a rock band. That one's next on my list once I have the cash for it.

Basically everything, assuming you're only reading translations.

The latest novel I read was - and I swear I am not trolling - Euphoria. (If someone doesn't know it, it's a guro nukige, so keep that in mind if you try googling it). I was really curious because a lot of people everywhere kept saying "holy shit, the story is actually really good", so I wanted to test it out.
I obviously had to skip like 3/4 of the novel not only because it was shocking at first, but because it's so over the top it get grating after a while and you just don't even care anymore.
The story was… Eh. It was okay, it had kind of a fun twist at the end that nobody can imagine. It's probably the best story you could find in a nukige ever, but I feel it doesn't justify having to ignore all of the crap (sometimes literal) they throw at you for like, 4-5 hours or something.

I do think the sprites for the girls are gorgeous. Nemu in particular is very beautifully drawn.

Anyway, I wanted to get into Kara no Shoujo, but I haven't had the time to actually sit down and play it. I love mysteries and horror.
