Closing comments...

This year's festival was rather small with only nine VN entries.

But each had its own flavor and all were very well made, especially considering how little time there was to prepare them. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the writing in some of these games. Clearly we have some professional writers in the crowd! :)

Ultimately, though, with more interest in the VN genre, more members, and more publicity in general, I hope we can preserve an environment of playing, creating, and sharing something that we enjoy in a friendly community. At the end of the day, what matters most is that we have fun! :floating:
