/v/'s Recommended Games Wiki

This page's content is really, really outdated. Check out the stuff there and update if possible.


Okay, so you're working on a video game, and you want your bros to know about it in some way/shape/form rather than continuously reposting in 'Amateur game dev threads'.

Here's a list for you bros to post your projects and BRIEFLY discuss what it's about, why you think it'll be neato. Linking to a development page/blog would be nice, but the only true requirement is some sorta screenshot, ya dig? A short gameplay video would be even cooler!

The Projects[]

Project Name Developer Genre Description Project Status Screenshot/Video
/v/irgin Quest !!Y+vf2690if0 RPG

Game has shown constant progression, even if it is just an RPG Maker game. Genuinely funny, dev made threads every Tuesday afternoon.

Made by the same guy who made SANIC THE GAEM 2: GAME OF /V/ EDITION (but this time with less memes.)

One of the few /v/ games that were actually completed and made with /v/.

Has a "sequel" (?): Shattered God - Quest for the Divine Relic

Go Fast Sanic Action RPG

There are 3 steps to build up speed.

Firstly, you have to hit the keys as they hover over the empty square (similar to guitar hero).

Secondly, you have to hit down as soon as the down arrow goes over the empty square.

Lastly, you have to mash down as fast as possible for 10 seconds.

There is a secret if you get over 1000 speed, no one has gotten it yet (some faggot on a stream got 993).

Katawa Shoujo Four Leaf Studios Visual novel Katawa Shoujo had humble origins on /jp/, with the help and suggestions of 4chan (particularly /v/ and /a/) users being implemented into the game. The story tells of a young man who, after suffering a heart attack upon hearing a confession from the girl he loves, is diagnosed with cardiac dysrhythmia and sent to a hospital where he meets several lovely and charming teenage girls who each suffer from a different disability. Features plenty of gratuitous sex scenes, but that's not the reason most people play the game in the first place; the art, writing, and interactive nature of the story are what made Katawa Shoujo worth checking out.
