That’s right, we’re finally doing a brand-new lewd interview for the very first time since February of this year! (2020) And this time I/we got a chance to sit down with the erotic indie games studio Graven Visual Novels.

Well, long story short. We ended up talking about everything from their upcoming ecchi Isekai visual novel/match-3 PC gameWorld End Echo“, erotic game development, Kickstarter, their plans for the future to their thoughts on censorship.

So with that said, please enjoy our interview with Graven Visual Novels 😉

Graven Visual Novels is a small team of visual novels developers that has worked on games such as “Bewitched”, “Silenced the house”, “Still alive” and “World End Echo”.

Robin TGG
Right off the bat, would you be so kind as to introduce yourself to our readers?

Graven Visual Novels
Hello. My name is Tony. I am one of the scriptwriters of Graven Visual Novels. I wrote the script to our previous projects with my good friend and co-writer Talsuni. This project is basically written by her, but I helped a little and made the translation.

Robin TGG
You don’t happen to remember how it all started for you in terms of developing video games? And at what point in time did you decide that you wanted to make lewd video games? (when, where, why and how)

Graven Visual Novels
Lewd you say… Well, we never thought that it could ever come to creating games like this. But here we are, with lewd girls showing you best of themselves!

We always wanted to tell people interesting stories in a different setting and now we are trying the new theme of Isekai. Talsuni invented a great story and the team decided that this one should be Lewd.

There are quite a few Russian gamers that like lewd games, sadly enough though…The same can’t be said about lewd game developers in Russia, as there isn’t all that many of them in the year 2020. So hopefully that’s something that will change in the future.

Robin TGG
Have you always been into erotic video games? And do you remember how that interest of yours started? And what’s the lewd gaming market like in Russia?

Graven Visual Novels
I played some erotic games for sure and I liked the ‘Mirror’ very much. After playing it I decided to make something similar, but simpler in mechanics. I believe many Russian gamers like Lewd games but I don’t think that Russian game-developers make many such games.

The story behind how “World End Echo” came to be might actually surprise you (at least it did for me).

Robin TGG
As of here and now though, you’re currently crazy busy with your upcoming ecchi visual novel/match-3 game “World End Echo”. So, how did that game project came to be? And how comes that you picked Kickstarter for your crowdfunding campaign?

Graven Visual Novels
We try to make visual novels for people of very different tastes. Our first visual novel ‘Silenced: the House’ was a body horror, the second was a fantasy ‘Bewitched’ with some quest elements.

Our third project is still in production, it is an action body horror ‘Still Alive’. Now it is ecchi visual novel/match-3 game ‘World End Echo’.  I remember how we picked the name for this game.

There were many variants like Apocalyptic Amazons and something like the Land of the Amazons. But then we remembered that the name of our previous project Still Alive was End of Humanity or World End Eden so we decided to make a similar name.

We really like Kickstarter, as Kickstarter is a great fund seeking platform! And even  though we didn’t manage to get the funding that we needed, we’re sure that one of our future projects will succeed there! And By the way, we plan to relaunch Still Alive someday!

world end echo

“World end echo” is Graven visualnovels rather cute and cool looking upcoming ecchi Isekai Visual novel/match-3 PC game.

Robin TGG
For those who may not know what “World End Echo” is all about, could you perhaps give us a brief introduction of the game?

Graven Visual Novels
It is about a gamer who finds himself inside the virtual next-gen game and seeks the way to freedom. He must conquer the hearts of the girls to beat the game and get out.

Robin TGG
Just out of pure curiosity, how lewd exactly is “World End Echo” going to be? And will the game be uncensored on release? Or will players have to download and uncensor patch?

Graven Visual Novels
The game has pictures with nude girls and there is a censorship feature that can be put on and off as you please.

For the most part, the feedback and response have been positive since “World End Echo” got announced (the same goes for the game’s PC demo launch).

Robin TGG
What has the feedback and response been like for “World End Echo” so far? (the gaming media, gamers and your Kickstarter campaign) Because I’m curious to know since you released a free demo for the game just recently.

Graven Visual Novels
People say that they like the Angel) She is a companion of the main character. They also enjoyed the story. It is our first Match 3 game, so many people find it a bit more difficult than other similar games, but I think it is a plus. It makes a game a little more challenging. And the girls are worthwhile fighting for.

Robin TGG
Was “World End Echo” always supposed to be an ecchi visual novel/match -3 battle game? Or was that something that you came up with later on in the development of the game? And is there any specific reason why you decided to make an erotic visual novel with match-3 elements to it?

Graven Visual Novels
The truth is, it was me who came up with the idea of Ecchi match-3 game. As I mentioned earlier I liked ‘Mirror’ so I suggested our team making a similar game.

Graven Visual Novels likes all sorts of different lewd video games, that’s also why they like to develop different kids of lewd video games as well instead of just focusing on one sort of erotic genre (cleaver!).

Robin TGG
There are quite a few different erotic genres out there. So with that fresh in mind, Are there any specific erotic genres that you prefer to work with? (Yuri, for example) or do you intend to try out different fetches and whatnot for your future titles?

Graven Visual Novels
Our team likes to play with different genres. So we made the demo of Yuri horror ‘Still Alive’ and now this Ecchi Isekai. We also want to make an Otome game. Talsuni is fond of this genre.

I/we have never been a fan of censorship, nor are the guys and girls over at Graven Visual Novels as they think that any sort of censorship should be something which the players can switch on and off as they please.

Robin TGG
What’s your take and thoughts on censorship and cancel culture in the games industry? And is there anything that we could do to stop it?

Graven Visual Novels
I don’t know how to stop it. But I think that censorship should be an optional thing. Some people like games to be more erotic, so I think it should be a matter of choice. Games must be interesting and fun to play for people with different tastes.

youtube vs lewd content and tgg

On the 28th of September of 2018 Youtube removed our trailer for Nutaku’s “Panties of rage” (that even though we censored the whole video ourselves). Furthermore, Youtube also slammed us with a channel strike as well (the strike ended on the 24th of December in 2018)…It didn’t end there however, as Youtube removed ALL of our lewd content from Youtube at the very start of 2019.

Robin TGG
Since you just happen to be a game developer who makes erotic video games, what’s your take on Youtube’s anti-lewd content stand? Because now it’s almost impossible to cover any lewd games at all on their platform…(Youtube removed +70 lewd videos from our Youtube page back in 2018)

Graven Visual Novels
I don’t watch Youtube very often. Well, okay, except walkthroughs of our games. Nevertheless, I think that it is a loss for sure.

Graven visualnovels would very much like to see “World End Echo” on consoles, so only time will tell if that’s something that’s going to happen or not.

Robin TGG
Do you have any plans to release “World End Echo” to any other formats than just PC in the future? (PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and so on).

Graven Visual Novels
We would like to make it for consoles if we have a chance.

Robin TGG
Is it really correct that “World End Echo” will be released this June? (2020) And will the game be released no matter if  “World End Echo” gets founded via Kickstarter or not?

Graven Visual Novels
Yes, during our campaign we continued working on the game. So it would be released in June or July 2020. We had a plan to make it a bit huger than it is as we like to work on the game and that is why we tried to get funding. There are some goals that will make the story more adventurous so we gave it a try.

Graven visualnovels got a lot of plans and stuff in the making for the future, for example, they intend to make a sequel to “Silenced”.

Robin TGG
We have now reached the very end of this interview. So I’m just going to wrap everything up by asking you about your plans, hopes and expectations for the rest of the year? And is there anything else that you would like to tell our readers?

Graven Visual Novels
Our plans… Well, we are always making something. Right now we are developing a new Match-3 in a more mystical setting and planning the Routes of our Otome game.

Also, we have Silenced 2 in development. The sequel will be a fresh start to the scary adventures of Ashley. And we never forget about Still Alive, waiting for the chance to relaunch it.

Thank you for this interview opportunity. It was a very interesting new experience for me. Best wishes from Graven visual novels.
