Welcome! This website is meant to serve as an introduction to what visual novels are, and address their existence as a form of digital storytelling that can be classified as both video games and literature. You can click any of the images below or use the menu for navigation. As everyone has a different definition for everything, a lot of the information I’ve gathered here is opinion-based and not meant to sound objective. Please feel free to contribute your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section that is available at the bottom of every page.
