I know there are some creative people on here.. but how creative?

Have any of you guys made or at least attempted to make a visual novel?

I'm currently working on a short one, and I got down one scenario! I'm re-imagined Toradora! and gave the main character a harem.. kinda. (link below)

Hey, I've never played a visual novel before! I've always wanted to...but you know, life and stress and things.

Thanks for letting me try your game! I liked it. I just wish there was more for the western world to have that didn't require knowing Japanese.

If there is, I haven't looked hard enough.

Keep up the work!!

I'd like to work on one once I have the time & tools to do so.

I barely had time for mines. Very time consuming so I had to work bit by bit each day.

The two most prominent fan-made visual novels that I know of are Katawa Shoujo (put together by a 4chan group) and Everlasting Summer (put together by an equivalent Russian fan group). Both are very good games. If you look up info on the development of those games, or contact their creators, they might be able to give you some advice.

I think the Katawa Shoujo group more or less disbanded, but the Everlasting Summer group is still around and tinkering with their game; they patch their English language steam port pretty often, in any case.

Anyway, good luck!
