Summary

A kinetic novel is a VN that does not present the "player" with any choices at all; they simply read through a single unbranching story. The term originates from Visual Art's brand KineticNovel (and all games produced under that brand are examples of this), but it is now also used to describe games by other companies with a similar structure.
