Visual novels in general are a very niche genre that a solid group of gamers thoroughly enjoy. I discovered the ones posted on the Lemmasoft forums for game jams and found myself amazed at the sheer creativity of every piece. Delivering a story through visuals, text, and audio is something that I find incredibly beautiful, and for years I’ve tried to support the genre through reviewing, recording, and streaming them.
Alas, the time came when I realized that I couldn’t keep up with the sheer amount of games constantly released, and when my queue of games I wanted to play far exceeded the amount of time I had to play them, my activities crashed and burned.
Still, I found myself really wanting to help in some way, and so EvnTide was created to help promote game developers and the constant steady slew of visual novels they release. I hope that this helps the community at large and I look forward to discovering new games to play for myself as a result!
