Newbie VN reccomendation quiz

#1 Post by BunnyAdvocate » Wed Jun 13, 2018 4:33 pm

In collaboration with Fuwanovel, I've been working on a little VN recommendation site that'll ask you for your genre preferences/platform/protag gender and then give you a list of recommended VNs. To work out which VNs the community think are best for newbies, I created a little sorter quiz (where you're shown a pair of VNs and asked which is more newbie friendly).

There's a ton of great EVNs so it'd be great to have them represented on the site. So if you're interested in voting, you can do so on the sorting quiz here. You can also see the full list of VNs here. If there are some VNs you think we really should have included, let me know asap and I can add them to the list.

I hope you enjoy the quiz!

I appear to be running into an issue when I click the first link:

But I otherwise look forward to seeing this in action. :)

Oh that's really odd Morhighan, I wonder how that happened. It seems to be working for me. Can you try it again please as perhaps I was in the middle of updating the file when that happened?

Alternatively, try this url that'll skip past the intro phase: http://bunnyadvocate.x10host.com/rank/rank.php (Remember to recheck the "include EVNs" checkbox if you follow the direct link).

I started...but the first 4/5 rounds were all JVNs...and I haven’t played any besides Phoenix Wright. So I feel unqualified to participate in the quiz.
A Close Shave:
*Last Thing Done (Jul 7) Finished Emotion Matrix for Joint Customer Sprite.
*Currently Doing: Print Matrices, & decide emotions to use for Joint Sprite, think about blinking and lip flap. Maybe also about TransitionConditionSwitch?
*First Next thing to do: Code in all the sprite emotion and camera movement for Close Shave Sprite Sections
*Next Thing to Do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Other Next Thing: Do SFX

Same here. But, as soon as I read that the quiz is based on VNDB data, I understood it wasn't for me.

No, sorry! You must be mistaking me for someone else.

There are a ton of EVNs in there, it's just that there are a lot of JVNs too. I just added a filter option on it so you can be shown ONLY EVNs from now on.

Thank you to everyone who voted. We're up to 17k votes at the moment, and the newbie ranking looks great, with a nice mix of otomes, EVNs, and JVNs. I'll be posting the results in around a week, once I'm sure the last voters are finished.

The next stage is to generate a website for the results, where users can enter their genre preferences and the like. While I'm adequate for an amateur, I'm not a professional web designer, so if there's any experts out there who would care to offer some input, please get in touch. I'd love to talk with you.
