Websites to sell Visual Novels for Non-English Languages

#1 Post by JBShields » Sun Mar 19, 2017 10:58 am

Hi everyone!

I actually have two questions:

1) What are the best websites to sell games online for Non-English languages? I mean, there's Steam, but what other websites are popular in countries that don't have English as their main language? What do they use? In Japan? Russia? Germany? Spanish language?

2) What are the best websites to sell games online in English? I'm thinking Steam, Itch.io, GOG.com ... What else is out there?

Thanks in advance!

For Japanese content, you can always use DLsite.com
They also accept English works and have an R-18 side and a G side as well as classifications for male or female target audience

I'm glad you mentioned the G side because when I went there, I accidently went to the R-side :shock:

That's a fault(?) of the site's design. It assumes the NSFW side as default. Sorry about that, I should have provided links.

The English accessible G-rated side can be found here:

It might be worth mentioning that you can also purchase VN assets from DLsite.
