Lately I’ve been collecting tools that can extract CGs and sprites from visual novels. So for the next couple of texts in here I’ll be talking about tools for the most common VN engines currently.
Popular among doujin circles in the early days, before it was phased out by KiriKiri2. Games that use this engine include Higurashi and Tsukihime.
The most widely used VN engine by doujin circles and even some commercial developers. Games such as G-Senjou no Maou and Dracu-Riot! use this engine.
Very popular engine used most often by western VN developers. Games that utilize this engine include Katawa Shoujo and Sugar’s Delight.
On a side note, this script for RPG Maker VX Ace is really awesome for visual novel-style games: Saba Kan’s Galge Conversation System
