Welcome to The Bee’s Knees, home to The Buzz, A Visual Novel Podcast & also a few of my own visual novel projects.

I discovered visual novels about a year ago, when I bought a copy of Magical Diary on steam. I was completely sucked in, and after I played that I also played Analogue: A Hate Story, Katawa Shoujo, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Autumn’s Journey, to name a few.

Those visual novels, amongst many others, were more powerful and immersive than any other medium (books, movies, videogames) that I’d ever come across before. They made me forget myself for a little while, and actually made me feel like I was the main character in the story.

There aren’t many mediums capable of telling a story and immersing players the way VNs can.

After playing so many, I began plotting a few visual novels of my own. I started trying to figure out how I would be able to do this. I wondered if if it would be even possible for someone like me (with no coding experience or knowledge on making games) to create a visual novel. Fortunately, I stumbled onto the LemmaSoft forums and found that the community was super helpful and supportive, and, best of all, encouraging.
