The next few days are going to be pretty crazy.
You know that feeling you get when you get home after a long day of work and want to take a few minutes to decompress?
Well, we’re going to have the chance to do just that with KotakuUK’s annual Visual Novel Awards, a chance for fans to nominate their favorite visual novels and get the chance for an official winner.
For the first time ever, Kotaku.com is running an annual Visual Fan Awards!
We’ll be awarding the winners and giving a special shout out to our judges:Visual Novel Awards will run from April 8th to April 13th.
All entries will be judged by a panel of the community and judged by our judges.
Here are the winners for the inaugural Visual Fan awards:Visual Fan Awards will also be running on the 16th of April and you can watch it live on the Visual Novel subreddit, which will be available for free until the end of April.
In a previous year, we had the opportunity to award the winner of the Best Visual Novel of 2016 award to a very special guest, and I hope you enjoy seeing the same person in 2017.
It was a truly incredible experience, and to see that special person again was truly special.
Here’s the full list of Visual Fan Award winners for 2017:Visuals are often one of the hardest things to write and produce for a visual fiction, but I hope this year’s Visual Fan award will help to further your understanding of the visual novel medium.
It also gives fans the chance of choosing their favourite entry, as well as a chance to nominate other fans to get the official vote.
Visuals can be incredibly subjective and we’ll be looking to encourage you to read through the entries, as we are also looking to reward you with some fantastic prizes for your effort.
Here is a link to the announcement post, as always, so make sure you follow the instructions as they may change over the next few weeks.
