Novel not new: A True End Podcast
Novel Not New is a visual novel game club with a queer focus and a casual bent. Every month, join Jen Unkle, Six Dettmar, and Em Marko for a critical and fun conversation about a new visual novel game. Our favorites will be dated, murders will be solved, lives will be lived, and all bad ends will be expunged from memory as we read our way through this most literary of video game genres. Novel is right in the name!
Welcome to a fresh, shining day for Novel Not New. We are hopeful, we are at our peak, we are ready to tackle the greatest video game series ever made, DanganRon-NO WAY DANGANRONPA IS AWFUL THIS IS THE NO GOOD AWFUL SERIES THAT WILL BRING NOTHING BUT DESPAIR! Either way... we ask, in this extra oversized episode, where you might fall, dear listener. Thank you for your time in this, the final killing game, at the end of the world.
We take a break from the long and complicate for the short and fun this month as the reading crew crack open the delightfully breezy Butterfly Soup, by Brianna Lei. Baseball, childhood pressures, the way the 90s taught us racism, and more all take their turns at bat as we slide into home with this funny, charming little game. Sports metaphor.
Next Month's Game: DanganRonpa V3! The Killing Game ends here.
We've finally done it, we've finally played a bad game! It only took three episodes.
But that doesn't mean it's a bad podcast, as the Novelettes all pile in for a lengthy episode about the ups and downs of drink making and people chatting in Glitch City with the cyberpunk mess that is VA-11 HALL-A. A whole array of 'delights' await you in this episode, as we talk about our least favorite tropes and lament men writing 'cool' women as a thing because it never, ever works.
Hello and welcome back to Novel Not New: A True End Podcast! We take a look back in time for episode 2 and talk about a small visual novel from the mid 00s, Narcissu! Thanks everyone for your feedback from last time, we're glad people like the show so much. A shorter episode this time, as we talk about sadness and death and coming of age in a stolen car.
Next month we're playing the cyberpunk bartending game VA-11 HALL-A, which you can get on PC or Vita!
