Withered was an absolutely harrowing experience plentiful scares, but the true terror lies beneath its surface.

W
What initially caught my eye was its beautifully grim aesthetics. I knew I had to pick this one up, and the title sequence itself was enough to show me that I was in for a wild ride.

It did not prepare me for how horrifying the story truly was.

Withered excels in many aspects, from the unmistakably unhinged storytelling, beautiful minimalist artwork, to its use of ambient music and sound effects to sink its withered claws in the supple, vulnerable parts of your mind.

Truly, a masterpiece.

Why do cute things have to end so horribly!

I loved cinderAI, everything from the humor, to the cute artwork, and so much of it just teased of a much larger game.

I really hope to see more Cinder soon! I read that the finished product wasn't what you intended, but that's okay! I loved it all the same, and I hope you continue making more games in the future 💕

Pulsatio Cordis is another testiment that a simple story told well can yield amazing results.

The game takes great care in maintaining a steady sense of immersion throughout with splashes of light-heartedness to keep you engaged. As more Yandere VNs are taking creative liberties with their storytelling, Pulsatio Cordis takes us back to basic and allows its threat to remain present in the forefront of the game, focusing our efforts into managing our love interest's emotions.

Needless to say, I'm excited to see where the final game takes us.

I didn't know what to expect of this game, but I loved it. Please tell me we get bigger in the next update, PLEASE

This game, holy hell this game. I've not had a game leave such a deep imprint on me in a long time, and gosh - I'm glad we're going to have the chance to see more of this world.

Putting aside the beautiful artwork, Cognitive Coffee has absolute banger writing. No matter which route you take (and even if you get them all!), you're still left wondering what exactly is going on with the story, and I loved every moment of it.

Both characters are compelling in their own ways, and I'd be darned if this doesn't show up on the front page of at least one genre sometime soon.

Forgive My Desires, Father was a brilliant spin-off and successor to the developer's previous title, Forgive My Sins, Father.

Expanding upon the story of Samael, the writing takes you on a ride of emotions throughout the story, and provides a satisfying ending to this unlikely encounter.

Whether you've played the prequel or not, I'd highly suggest that you play this visual novel if you're a fan of the BL genre, and if you'd like to indirectly affect the actions of this young, troubled man.

I wasn't sure what to expect out of the Diner, looking as cute as it is, but when I went in - oh boy, it was just a ride through and through.

It's rare to see people explore the Yangire trope even in current times, but what surprised me more was how the game throws any expectations you have about it right out the window regardless of the decisions you make.

It's fascinating, and only leaves more questions to be answered.

It's rare to see a game that explores the journey someone goes through as they begin their descent into madness, and I was just so captivated by the story of Samael and Father Andrew.

I'll leave my review for the spinoff once that video is released, but in Forgive My Sins, Father alone - I was surprised to see how you actually explored what could've possibly driven Samael into committing the acts he could've done.

The story truly is captivating, and eerily true to life. At times, I almost forgot that it was a fictional story unfolding before me, and I just had to see what more there was to the story.

I can't believe there's going to be more of this game coming out soon.

It really reminds me of the classic creepypastas and nosleep stories I used to read ages ago. It's creepy, unsettling, and the fact that you just can't go back to play it again really drives up the creep factor. I loved this, and I can't wait to see more of it.

I can't believe how much I learned from playing this game, sheesh /pos

I believe this was one of the more wholesome dating sims I've played in a long time. Kara's a mess, but she's a mess I'd love to get involved with.

Also, the blahaj was easily the best part of the game 💕

I will neither confirm nor deny that I'm a stan for Catsket.

As always, the writing and artwork are absolutely beautiful in this game. Compared to the intrigue brought about from Art Without Blood, and the poetic melancholy of Laying With The Dead, God Is In The Radio draws you in and captivates you with a chilling sense of dread all throughout the story.

It's a fine addition to the Art Without Blood universe, but it also stands alone as a fantastic visual novel for fans of either Lovecraft of Stephen King.

Oh gosh, I'm so glad to have gotten the recommendation to play this. Bug Dates is absolutely adorable, and it's fascinating how you managed to create such unique characters to choose to date.

I honestly had a hard time picking just one, and boy golly, I'm so glad to hear that we're going to be getting more out of this Universe soon enough.

I believe the hype behind this game was definitely justified. I had my eyes on it, even before coming to know about the Yandere VN community.

The art style is just so clean, both Keith and Tenebris are so cute in their own way. I do have my own theories about the two characters, but I'm honestly really excited to see where the story takes us in the final game.

There's no such thing as a perfectly relatable MC... I take that back

I honestly couldn't believe that a freaking joke I made midway through the game turned out to be the big plot twist in one of the endings 😂

I really enjoyed this, especially with how the cute art style juxtaposed against the much darker themes. It's just so fun!

I had to reread your disclaimer at the very end of your description, cos I really couldn't believe this was made in just a week.

You really shouldn't play yourself down like that! Despite the simple premise, I'd say the story was very well written and illustrated. It still kept familiar elements from it's predecessor, but Liar Liar 2 truly expands on the story further, and I'd say there's even major improvements in the art style as well.

I can't wait to see the remake of this, that's something I'm looking forward to covering once it comes out.

Oh gosh, I love how unique Mister Mike Mic was as a visual novel. It kinda reminds me of the good old days of short horror RPG Maker games.

I think what really shines through about this game as well would be its implementation of puzzles, where it really tricks you into paying close attention to the questions.

I really hope to see more from you soon. If this was a proof of concept, I believe there's so much more you can do with either this game or future projects.

Was I just kidnapped by a Yandere sheep? A Yandere Goat? I... I don't know.

Nonetheless, I do love how this essentially boiled down into an adorable horror otome sort of situation, where you have to manage Jacob's emotions to make sure he either leaves you alone, or keeps you as his play thing.

Also, I can't believe you're actually making an extended version of this!

I swear, it's not cos I wanna see what an absolutely feral Jacob would do to us 😂

The Murder of Beppi The Clown builds upon the absurdity of the first dating sim, and I absolutely loved it.

The comedy in both visual novels were spot on, and I couldn't stop laughing throughout my playthrough.

Would I want to see another? Maybe! It's a lot of fun, and I wish I could find more visual novels as ridiculous as these.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I loved this ride through and through. I never thought I'd commit murder for this clown, but it was all worth it 🖤

Picta Mori was an absolute thriller.

Between a heartwarming sapphic story, a truly terrifying chase sequence (how in the world did you capture that thrill in a visual novel?!), and the looming dread that hung throughout the story, it's difficult to pin down any single moment that shines the rest.

It was undoubtedly a captivating story, with a truly unique and beautiful art style to boot. I'd definitely recommend people to give this one a go if they ever have the chance.

For a game with a fairly simple premise, Liar Liar and its successor did a fairly good job.

Sometimes you don't need a complicated plot or amazing CG to tell a good story. Just telling a simple one well enough is great - especially with a premise that's as eccentric as Liar Liar. The artwork and music are incredibly cute, and once you get past the first 3 minutes of the game, you kinda realize that the game's plot was fairly well thought through.

I enjoyed it, and I think it should definitely be up there as one of the few classic visual novels made, similar to how Misao and Mad Father are well regarded within classic indie RPG horror games.

Alma is absolutely adorable, aaaaa

I'm so tempted to go through the rest of the endings just to uncover more about them, but the options were so mean, I couldn't QwQ Still! I can't wait to see more from the team, this was really well made.

Trapped with Jester was undeniably fun to play.

Amazing VA by Fennwic as usual. It's kinda amazing how you managed to show us so much about a character within just these few minutes of gameplay, and the artwork is just 💕

I wasn't sure what I was expecting, but it was a pleasant surprise indeed 💕

God, I've been looking for a game that would make me giggle, and this one just took me on a whole roller coaster the whole way through. It's a plus how the art style was just bussin'

Murder Date. Is it worth the $1? Absolutely and more

I was pleasantly surprised to see how this game holds up against the many other games featuring murder husbands. Jeff is just absolutely adorable as a character, and I'm really glad you decided to take a fluffier approach to the story.

Another absolutely beautiful story by catsket

I've always loved the artwork for catsket's games, and though the game itself was fairly minimal in nature, the writing kept me gripped throughout the whole experience.

I can never say no to a nice, fluffy, yet somewhat depressing sapphic story.

THIS WAS IT! I can't believe I missed out on something so simple QwQ

This game is absolutely adorable 💕 So glad I got the suggestion to pick it up.

Amoeba Yandere? Amoeba Yandere.

This 
Parasite In Love was truly a breathtaking experience for anyone who's thinking of picking it up. The artwork for this game is truly a spectacle to behold, and the writing left me with so many mixed feelings.

What can I say? I loved it, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who's interested in playing it.

Nothing could go wrong from working at a convenience store, right?

Unfortunately, there isn't much I can say about the story this early on, as it's mainly an introduction to each character, the world we're in, and the potential danger at hand.

However, I do love the artwork. Admittedly, I was immediately drawn into it upon seeing the devilishly handsome love interest in Espoir Du Vide's playthrough.

Can't wait to see what's to come!

Brute Forcing a Caesar Cipher also yielded no results. Dropping this comment here to follow the thread :/

It's been awhile since I've had anyone mention the dark web in awhile, that was quite a throwback.

What I find fascinating about this game is that the art and writing were effective in eliciting such a visceral reaction out of me during the gameplay. It was gruesome, and painful to go through in the best ways possible.

I'm really not sure if Melissa is ready for the horrors of the internet.


I loved the aesthetics, and while the trope of the 4th Wall Break has been done so often at this point, it was still hella fun to see.

Well, you got me hooked, Little Moth 🖤

As the latest game to be released by Fluorescent Red Studio, it shows great promise. It's a solid visual novel all-round from it's captivating writing, premise, voice acting, and atmosphere. Even without the presence of sight, the story managed to draw me in, and I can't help but wonder what the "right choices" are meant to be.

It's a great demo thus far, I'm looking forward to seeing what the finished game would be like!

The premise for this VN is truly quite fascinating

It
It's not very often I come across a visual novel that has us play as the 3rd person of a yandere situation. It's interesting watching the interaction between the player character as well as Devyn, and it had me second guessing a lot of what's going on.

I'm excited to see what happens in the full game.

Why are the cute ones always so deadly?

14 Days With You was absolutely adorable. I kinda appreciate the fact that my character is enough of a skeptic to keep me from flinging myself into OBVIOUS DANGER Ren's charms.

The art style is adorable, and reminds me about all the Shoujo anime I used to love.

Really looking forward to the next release!

This was undoubtedly the coziest visual novel I've played in awhile 💕

Putting aside the fact that the interface and minigames are genius, I felt so incredibly immersed in the story, it almost felt like Micah was actually there in the other side of the screen.

I'm so glad I picked this up, and god - I can't wait to see more of him.

(1 edit)

Glass Mind, yeah the hype was warranted.

Thus far, the writing for this game is an absolute treat. I loved the art style as well, and the animations did add a nice layer of charm to the game which I definitely appreciated.

Super excited to check out the final game once it's released!

I'll have to say, You And Him was an unexpectedly pleasant surprise to play

The writing for this game is unlike any other I've played before. I loved how witty the protagonist can be if you manage to play through the good ending. There's a lot to unpack regarding the hitchhiker's backstory, and it leaves a lot of questions as to where this story may go when it's finally released.

I had a good time playing this. Looking forward to seeing how it goes!

I had an absolutely amazing time playing this game. I couldn't stop laughing throughout my playthrough 😂

Are you working on anything else soon? I would absolutely love to check out anything you come out with, especially if it's going to be as absurd as this.
