These are, in my opinion, the best Original English Language Visual Novels (OELVNs) out there. Keep in mind that if I haven’t read them they can’t make it here, so don’t worry if you don’t see your favorites.
If you’re new to visual novels and want to know more about them, feel free to ask either here or using one of the options on my “Contact / Follow Me” page (under the “About” tab).
Disclaimer: Some of these titles contain adult content. They have been marked.
Note: The OELVN Recommendations List has a lower threshold for acceptance than the Visual Novel Recommendations List. OELVNs can appear in both lists.

R18 – Option to revert to PG
An Octave Higher – Formulaic Magic + Dystopian Society
