Phenomeno - VN by Nitroplus and Yoshitabe Abe
Did a search, but nothing came up. Found this on another forum today, figured I'd give it a shot. It's a freeware VN meant to promote a novel series of the same name. The VN features the first two books, from what I've gathered.

Here's the game:

and here's the English patch:

Since the game is free, I don't consider this a violation of our warez rules.

I played through it earlier, and it's pretty good. It's a mix of horror, occult, and suspense themes with a light dose of humor.

So for those interested, play through it and let me know what you think! It's a short play through, only a few hours.

I'm gonna give it a try. Thought Chaos Head was cool and loved Stein's Gate.

Looks interesting enough. I'll give it a try.

Thanks for the links Solace.

You can finish this in 2-3 hours, and it's a fantastic trip. Unforgettable stuff, god-tier art.

It was certainly interesting, and I'm half-glad I took it up in the middle of the night. Save for a few grammatical errors, the translation seemed to have done an incredible job.

I absolutely love occult stuff, so this really hit home with me, naturally. Art was fantastic, script was fine (can't really say it was "good" or "bad" distinctly, only that it did its job). I would certainly continue reading the actual light novels...

If I actually knew how to read them. Though I must say the sound was one defining factor of this I particularly enjoyed. The music and noises were chilling and I loved it. May not be able to achieve the same effect with just reading alone.

Thanks for the heads up on this VN. I'm very surprised i never heard about it before as it was a really enjoyable read.

Wow, I remember hearing about this back when it was first distributed offline, but somehow I never realized that they put it up for download. Thanks for the heads-up.

hmm quite an awesome VN with great art and great music.

I wonder what happens in the end thought

anyway here is the translated LN

That was a great, quick read! I'm on the fence about picking up the LNs, though... so much of my enjoyment of the visual novel version came from the music/sound effects and excellent direction. Can't really imagine the book version creeping me out in the same way.
