If you’re reading this blog, that probably means you’ve at least got a tangential interest in cartoon teenage girls saying things written by grown men who have never talked to a teenage girl before in their entire lives! Do you? Well, then I have got news for you.
Motivated by boredom and an unused Steam code for TyranoBuilder Visual Novel Studio I had lying around, I have created a teensy tiny visual novel for everyone who wants to to enjoy. Inspired by all those anime about girls talking about nothing, I present to you Nothing Special, a (very hokey) visual novel(ette) that features just that, and, as the title implies, little else!
Nothing Special includes everything you’d expect, such as:
- Pointless, meandering dialogue about subjects you never think about!
- References to movies from 20 year ago and weird indie music you’ve never heard of!
- Six (6!) different sprites I made from lovely (open-source) art assets by Yuchinko!
- Three (3!) different annoying sound effects!
- Stock music!
- Random, sudden drama at the very end!
If this at all sounds interesting to you, you can download Nothing Special here (Windows only, for now)! Unzip the folder, open it, then click the file entitled “Nothing_Special.exe” and enjoy!
Playing through all of it will take you around five minutes, but of course I recommend you go back to pick all the choices you didn’t pick in your original run, which shouldn’t be too hard because this game is extremely linear because I don’t know how to code. Fun!
Let me know what you thought in the comments, and share this game with your friends if you want to inflict it upon them!
