A visual novel is a type of video game that typically focuses on storytelling and character development. In a visual novel, players are presented with a story and must make decisions that affect the course of the narrative. Visual novels often have minimal gameplay mechanics and instead rely on text, dialogue, and character interactions to advance the story. Some well-known examples of visual novels include the Danganronpa series, the Ace Attorney series, and the Steins;Gate series. Visual novels can be a fun and engaging way to experience a complex and interesting story.
