Visual Novels, yay!

Visual novels are story-based games popular in Japan. There have been several animes based on visual novels, including Kanon, Air, Clannad, Fate/Stay Night, Tsukihime, ef, and Wind ~a breath of heart~. There have been some attempts at translating some visual novels into English; some projects can be found at list of translated visual novels or from Insani, a group that translates (a lot of) visual novels.

Some of them are free and pretty good; I enjoyed Narcissu very much, and I'm looking forward to playing a translation just released by DejaVu, called Ballad of an Evening Butterfly.
