'All ideas grow out of other ideas. '
VNs Now! isn't just another gaming site. It is the reflection of a passion that is shared between talented writers, programmers, artists and composers spanning from the Americas to the South Pacific. The idea stemmed from realizing that kind of passion deserves a spotlight for itself in a world hungry for talent and in 2011 launched into the world with an interview and a handful of English Visual Novels (or Original English Language Visual Novels) to as many people we could.
Since then this small corner of the Internet has begun to take the glory of the EVN banner to new fields such as Internet broadcasting, App Applications and other things that keep the E-I-C up to 4 AM. And speaking of our illustrious Editor...
So, just who am I anyway? I am the merciless one, known to all except possibly you, Grand Master of the American Templar Order and servant of the people, JP the 3rd AKA the VNs Now Guy. Basically, I stumbled into this entire thing out of a desire to tell more people about EVNs. After playing a few, I found one I really liked and reviewed it on my fiction blog. From that came the thought of, 'Wait...I can't be the only one who reviewed Jisei (the game in question). Where are the other reviews?'
Then I saw other reviews done on that EVN...and then VNs Now! was born.
That isn't to say that my reviews are any better, it is to say that I don't treat EVNs like the red-headed stepchild of its console brethren. Story matters here and, as my literary motto goes, character is king. Hopefully that will shine through on this quirky, sometimes intelligent journey into this growing world.
