Saya no Uta

A horrific and compelling visual novel about the depths we can sink to if our perception of reality is distorted. Written by Gen Urobuchi, creator of Madoka Magica. The less you know about this going into it, the better; suffice to say it is an absolute masterpiece of the medium.

There’s Not Always a Happy Ending - The modern world is incredibly concerned with spoilers: the giving away of surprises before you, yourself, have reached that part in the narrative. But some of the most effective stories out there are pretty up-front about their most surprising elements and still manage to forge a compelling, interesting narrative. D.O.’s Kana Little Sister is a good example … Continue reading There’s Not Always a Happy Ending
Visual Novels and Games: The Same, But Different - Every time I settle down to play — or even to write about — a visual novel, I’m reminded of how much I love the medium. I use the word “medium” when referring to visual novels rather than “genre” because in many cases, it’s not entirely accurate to call them “games”, despite the fact that … Continue reading Visual Novels and Games: The Same, But Different
