THAT'S GOOD THEN! I hope you'll get time to play VNs
Oh, yeah, I absolutely agree! Just because it's "just a game" doesn't mean that the writing is somehow subpar to published books. There are definitely some things published that are of less quality than some VNs I've read.
TBH. Then there's a matter of POV and in general plotline choices that could make for very interesting discussions on plotting, since VNs in general have multiple routes of varying quality.
The VN that originally gave me the idea was Taarradhin by Cyanide Tea (I always hold that one up as a "true end" done well) and since it's SFW, on the short side, and has some interesting topics to discuss, it has potential as something I could do between units or at the end of the year or something. If I could do a longer VN as like its own unit and everything, I've been thinking about maybe CUPID???? With the mature filter on of course. But even with that I wonder if the content of the VN itself would put a stop to that idea even if the administrators or whoever were okay with me showing my class a game.
uhhh we are derailing this thread so hard right now oops
The pancakes look deLICIOUS I WANT ONE. hmm maybe i'll have some for dinner.
OH. I'LL CHECK IT OUT SOON!
It's less wordy and far shorter, but I've always held Locked-In as something to aspire to in both visuals, presentation, sounds, etc etc. It's just so EXCELLENT on all that. The plot isn't something I would discuss at length, but it has excellent narrator voice-- it's very commanding and is full of personality.
I'll admit I didn't have the guts to play through CUPID LMAO
I tried but chickened out by the first choice because... no... that's too cruel for me to do without losing sleep.
IT'S A VERY GOOD DERAIL ACTUALYL I absolutley love thinking about VNs as a narrative medium. I think it doesn't get talked about enough, even. It's got so much potential! If board rules allow it I could talk about this all day.
