ADVaNCE is a review site dedicated to visual novels and other story-heavy games.

The  name ADVaNCE actually comes from the admin’s planned visual novel engine, the full title of which is “ADVenture and Novel Creation Engine.”

In the review site, ADVaNCE could possibly stand to mean “ADVenture and iNteractive Culture Examination.” Or something slightly sillier, as seen in this logo mockup:


But that’s too jumbled, we think.

It is our goal to review and examine the culture behind visual novels, Adventure games, dating sims, life sims, other sims, and other story-based games.

We hope you enjoy our efforts. Have fun reading!
