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. http://www.sakevisual.com/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.

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.

http://www.renpy.org is a site for a freeware engine for making these things, and you can find links there to tons of games (some free; some not) that people have made with it.

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?

Katawa Shoujo is an English visual novel that will be free and promises to be incredibly awesome...probably the best English visual novel yet.

Plus there's Anon's Nice Days, a 4chan-browser-oriented VN that will be released a bit sooner.

'Katawa Shoujo' roughly translates to 'Disabled Girls'.
