FAQ

Below we’ve listed out some of the common questions that we’ve been asked by our readers along with their answers. We hope that these will help you to learn a little bit more about VN Game Den. This list, the questions it contains, and the related answers may change over time.

Q: I wrote a comment on one of the articles but I don’t see it – why?

A: Every comment that is posted to the site goes through a manual review process before it is publicly accessible. During that review process, we may make the decision not to publish the comment for a variety of reasons. Rest assured that even if your comment was not published we did read it.

Q: Is VN Game Den run by volunteers?

A: No. Our writers, editor, operations staff, and marketing director are all paid for their time. Your support via Ko-Fi and Patreon makes it possible for us to continue to produce great content.

Q: I submitted my game to VN Game Den and it hasn’t been covered. Why not?

A: We receive lots of submissions and while we attempt to cover as many as we can through our articles, tweets, and our content creator network, unfortunately we’re not able to cover every game that is submitted.

Some of the most common reasons that we don’t cover games include:

  • Your game was released more than 6 months ago (Generally, the newer the game is the more likely we’ll cover it and if it’s older than 6 months it’s unlikely to be covered)
  • Your game is solely/primarily focused on pornographic content (We cover NSFW games but not ones where the primary focus is the explicit content itself)
  • The team prioritized other submissions during a busy month (This can happen for a variety of reasons)

Q: What is your rating guideline?

A: We don’t use strict guidelines because they can be too harsh. All visual novels we’ve reviewed have good qualities and we want to respectively highlight that along with any issues we find in an honest manner.

Q: I supported VN Game Den on Patreon and/or on Ko-fi, how is the money used?

A: VN Game Den uses all funds from Patreon and Ko-fi to support our website. These funds are used in paying our website upkeep fees, and paying our staff for their work.
