Um...::blush:: I wrote an exceedingly short sound novel called [text]. It's not as impressive as a proper Japanese game, but it's free, and free is good.​summerstory.​html

I also wrote a somewhat longer otome game that girls (and some guys) really seem to like. If you're interested...also free.​realistair/​

Soyasushi Productions apparently has some really awesome short VNs and some longer ones, all free. Here are some that I really liked:

Ribbon of Green
A story about two girls who used to be friends, but were torn apart by a highly competitive environment. Very touching.

RE: Prince of Nigeria
Hilariously different from the creator's previous game. This is sheer comedic gold. Basically, it's about a girl who treats every Nigerian scam e-mail as a love letter.

As these are mostly fan-made OEL works, the quality varies...incredibly, but there was one called "That Cheap and Sacred Thing" that I found rather moving. It's more a story with pictures than a game, but I thought it was a fine little SF tale in its own right.

Just found this one.

Phenomeno is a free visual novel developed by Nitro+ and illustrated by Yoshitoshi ABe. I'm actually downloading it right at this moment. Don't know if it's any good, but it's Yoshitoshi ABe, so it would be a sin not to check it out.

This thread might get moved later on, but I believe this qualifies as a free, translated visual novel:​

The translation group even got permission from the original creator to distribute this.

Mai and Yuzu?
