- Plenty of blood and guts laying around. The guy with the knife looks
- suspicious.
- </dd><dt>Mystery</dt><dd>
- Suspense, tension and a little bit of morning dew makes a mystery game.

- </dd><dt>Romance</dt><dd>
- Pull some heart-strings, get intimate with another character, and have some fun!
- <br />
- <b>Note</b>: Romance does not imply that sexual intercourse takes place. Likewise,
- Sexual Content does not imply romantic intercourse takes place (for instance,
- rape).
- </dd><dt>School Life</dt><dd>

- dialog-box fall under this category.

- The text is presented in a special window, usually at the bottom of the screen.

- the <i>NVL</i> and <i>ADV</i> categories should be selected.
- </dd><dt>Action</dt><dd>

- player's speed, dexterity and reaction time. Common examples are fighting games,

- A game with a linear plot has a static story; it is not possible to get different paths
- or endings. Many games in this category do not prompt the player with choices and simply
- tell the story as it is. This is, however, not a rule: it is also possible for a game
- to provide choices, but they have no influence on the story itself. (e.g.
- <a href="/v3">Utawarerumono</a>)
- </dd><dt>Branching</dt><dd>

- to that of our own with a few significant changes, but it could also be
- radically different.
