Game development is not easy. Ways to make it accessible to those with little to no programming knowledge is in demand by many aspiring developers. This enables more developers to express their visions. Degica have done this for RPGs already through the creation of the popular RPG Maker series alongside Kadokawa Games. Now the publisher is trying to do this with the visual novel genre as well with the release of Visual Novel Maker.

In short, it is — with a few rough edges. Allow me to elaborate.
