Visual novels

Visual Novels are rather static games that do not feature a lot of gameplay, they are completely story-driven experience. Visual Novels focus on static graphics, sound and text that keeps moving and developing as you make choices that will affect the narrative. There are several ending options for most Visual Novels and you can reach each of them by altering the storyline once you are required to make a choice in the game. Your choices can do both lead you through the story in different plots or make you face the bad ending and you will have to replay. Visual Novels originated in Japan and most of the examples of them are anime-like.

As there are many different options and a lot of scenarios the novel can take once you start making choices, the games are likely to be huge (in terms of possibilities). The game takes the direction you choose. What will you do? It’s up to you only.
