Don't forget about "on rails" in addition to adventure and puzzle. This game is the definition of an on rails game although not in a traditional sense.

The team has concluded there is no evidence to support Visual Novel (no constant text screens over static images with frequent opportunities to make dialogue decisions that change outcomes) and no evidence for On Rails since you can move forwards and backwards at your own leisure. Just adding Puzzle.

Weird. I assume Visual Novel was a Novel without much text/dialogs, which is "Visual".

It's like saying Brothers is not a Visual Novel. Thanks to the images into constellations, the elements scattered throughout the levels, it tells us a story of friendship, or even more.

But I just checked, and Brothers is not categorized in Visual Novel, just in Adventure. That is a little bit weird.

I really liked the game. It has great music and visual effects. Plus the story that was unfolding in front of your eyes was worth it. Since there is no dialogue or even text to read, it could be played by just about anyone. Ok there are a few parts that rely on hearing though. Even though it was a bit short. But, since I got it through Game Pass - I have no complaints.
