I've not played any of its products, but Voltage is a company that has produced several romance games.

I think that we're probably going to take a page from MoaCube and go non-anime for our next OEVN.

That's super helpful. Thank you.

And yeah. Voltage is pretty sub-par all around. That was one of the reasons I wanted to make a good English, Otome mobile game. Tired of teaching dudes how to cook for themselves.

I was originally gong to say that I think it's a stylistic choice and edging out of strictly anime style for visual novels might be a refreshing think to do and a way to start introducing a new style to visual novels so that people don't feel like it 'has' to be anime style...

Then I read the tired of teaching guys how to cook part and I laughed so hard I nearly spit out my drink XD
First Finished game! Deep Freeze Cafe.
