FRI 2:00 PM: Rise of the English Language Visual Novel (45 mins.)

Room: ONYX (Lincoln, Upper) Rated: Everyone

Produced By: Pixels and Pins Studio


Since the visual novel's inception in Japan, increasing interest in foreign media has created a massive audience for localized games in the US. But what about something more homegrown? With access to newer tools and resources for indie game developers, a new generation of visual novels is on the rise that takes inspiration from but delightfully departs from its Japanese forebears.
