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!
We return after some extra time off with a new episode about everyone's favorite princess death simulator Long Live The Queen! Enjoy our tales of confusion. intrigue, and being surprised just how many threads this seemingly simple game can have!
This Month's Game!
Long Live the Queen
Next Month's Game!
Ghosts of Miami
It's just Jen and Em this month as we take a break from the long toil of big games to enjoy this collection of three smaller releases. After the exhaustive trek of DanganRonpa, this is exactly the break we needed. It's nice to remember that games can be good and enriching and interesting while also being less than an hour. Join us, for the smallest games covered yet, in this month's appetizer tray of visual novels.
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.
