:TITLE:About us
- ..
+ Our primary goal is building a large, comprehensive and up-to-date database for
+ information about all existing visual novels. VNDB aims to be a central place
+ too look up general information about the visual novels themselves, as well as
+ practical information around it, like available releases, localisations and
+ producers.<br />
+ Our secondary goal is to promote the wonderful medium called visual novels to
+ a broader audience, an audience not limited only to people who can understand
+ Japanese, but to anyone interested in literature, anime, manga or games,
+ regardless of their geographical location or cultural differences.
