The Fuwanovel EVN List: February 2024 Releases

Welcome to Fuwanovel’s newest monthly blog post, the Fuwanovel EVN List! In this particular blog post, we aim to share with our readers a summary of EVNs that were released during the span of the past month. Note that these EVNs might include indie titles from other languages that were made available in English. If you’re a fan of reading English indie titles, then look out for the post every start of the month!

We managed to do it for two months in a row! That’s a good start. I hope by now you’ve noticed that the EVN List isn’t actually a comprehensive list of all EVNs that got released within the last month. If we did that, well, this would be longer than it already is. So as much as we’d like to actually do that, the list more or less is turning into something that reflects what we thought were pretty interesting titles. Hope we share the same opinion!

As a quick comment, this month had a lot of game jam visual novels that got released. Individually presenting them all would be a pretty tiring endeavor, so I made sure to at least note some interesting ones based on the synopsis or some other aspect of the visual novel. Let’s talk about it more at the end of the list.

Without further ado, here’s the list of EVN releases for February 2024!
Note: The article lists EVN releases by release date; please keep it in mind when to avoid confusion on the titles’ order!

People of the distant future have taken a rule: human lives are too precious to risk for the exploration of deep space. That’s why in the atmosphere of an alien unfriendly planet, beneath the wide crown of the space garden «Ailanthus», lives a race of artificial servants – Artifites.

A young Artifite – explorer, Ein, is tormented by a vague longing. He doesn’t know when the expedition began, and why it still can’t reach its goal. One thing he knows for sure is that since they’re stuck here for a while, he should find himself a girl. And he’s got just the right one in mind.

Frequent encounters in the wardroom, lunches together with the whole crew… the task seems a piece of cake. But there are three catches. First, the girl is as cold and unfriendly like cosmic ice. The second one, she’s obsessed with exploring abandoned alien ruins, hidden beneath the planet’s cloud cover. And the third one, the empty ruins have begun to respond to her.

For most people, it is like a utopia, but beneath this beauty, this village is rife with feudalistic customs incongruent with its idyllic surroundings. Human trafficking, gender bias, and archaic rituals such as ghost marriage persist in the village, remnants of the old society’s customs.

The protagonist of the story, Ma Xiaodong, is the son of the Ma family, local landlords in this village. Living with his father, Ma Qingchen, his two sisters, Ma Minyi and Ma Wenhui, and his childhood friend, Zhu Qianyin, the five of them share a household. As the eldest son, Ma Xiaodong cherishes every day spent with his family, valuing them above all else. Though his father occasionally treats him harshly, he remains committed to the principle of filial piety.

Despite the seemingly peaceful surface, the inevitable conflict between personal growth and traditional beliefs creates tensions. Like a butterfly breaking free from its cocoon, changes in thoughts and contradictions with traditional values become apparent one summer. In this particular summer, long-hidden family secrets gradually surface.

Faced with the impending darkness, the choices between change and tradition, how will the young boys and girls respond? Will the gears of their destiny begin to turn, propelling them towards new horizons? All the answers will be revealed in this summer.

Order Us!

Developer: OrderUsTeam
Platform: Itch (Demo)
Publication: Non-free
Released: TBA

In retro-era Europe, a small cafe has a lot more than baking going on behind the curtains. The staff is made up exclusively of adorable girls dressed like menu items! The listed prices seem ludicrously expensive to any newcomers, appearing to cost several hundred times what one would expect. Yet the regulars argue that these “rates” are the best in town. At least, that’s what your dreams look like. In reality, the grand opening is two weeks away and you’ve managed to hire only two escorts, neither of which are capable of servicing the customers!


And that’s pretty much it! This time, we featured around 30 EVN titles. That’s a pretty good number, right? Going forward, I plan to continue doing it around the same number so it’s not too overwhelming of a list for both the reader and myself, haha.

Among those we’ve listed, a title I’ve actually played is protoViolence. Fujoneko wrote a news article about it a little over a week ago, and reading the synopsis by itself got me interested in the series. It’s a pretty good experience reading it by itself, but pairing it with its sequel that released in 2023 rounds up the entire story pretty nicely. And to top it all off, they’re both freeware! So if you have some time to just sit and read something, a little bit of Ctrl+F plus freeware might be the ticket to your next brainrot.

Special Mentions

Besides that, there were a few titles that didn’t make the final cut but I think deserve a mention. Apolitical Magical Girl Game by Stanwixbuster was a nice play on the “discouraged politics” guideline of Magical Girl Game Jam which turned a cute highschool setting for a magical girl main character into a visualization of the struggle to find meaning in fighting for an abstract idea of good. It’s pretty condensed and packed with a few fancy words, but the spirit of it is easy to digest.

Valentine date: WHEN my introvert BEST friend need my help for his valentine date by magi_kera was too simplistic for me to include it, but the art style was pretty damn adorable. Sure, the English isn’t exactly the best and the story’s downright mundane, but it made me smile a bit as I was doing the EVN list. Shoutout to all the introverted people who struggle to get out of your shell! You’re definitely not alone.

Last but not the least, I’d like to mention Order Us! by OrderUsTeam. Argent brought the game to my attention at the start of this year and honestly, it looked pretty nice at a glance. It’s Live2D too! Order Us! was originally supposed to release at the start of March, but due to an unfortunate incident with Steam, they’ve been forced to delay it and look for alternative storefronts to release it in. You know it’s a pretty big issue when even NekoNyan steps up and complains about having met the same situation. Well, at least now we know why Tenshi☆Souzou RE-BOOT! is delayed.

Come show your support for them in this thread!

Closing Remarks

To close it out, I hope at least a few of these titles we listed in this month’s list looked interesting enough for you to pick up and try to read. There’s a lot of cool EVNs out there that I personally haven’t read myself, so I’m excited for everyone to find their own hidden treasures among the numerous releases out there. Tell us in the comments if you find some!

As always, a lot of thanks to fujoneko for helping me out with the list. Look forward to next month’s list as well. See you in the next article!
