Snow[1] is a Japanese adult visual novel developed by Studio Mebius for the PC first released on January 31, 2003. It was later ported to the Dreamcast in September 2003, and the PlayStation 2 in February 2004 with adult content removed for both ports. While the original PC version has no voice, in September 2004 a new full voice version for PC, Snow: Full Voice Version, was released followed by another "renewal" PC version, Snow P.E in September 2006; P.E standing for Plus Edition, which backports added parts from the console versions. A port for the PSP titled Snow-Portable- was released by the company Prototype in August 2007. The game features more than six-hundred different stills with simple animations and effects[citation needed], a multiple-choice-based conversation system, beautiful Japanese settings and a long storyline.


The story of Snow starts when the main protagonist Kanata Izumo visits a small village called Ryujinmura (龍神村?, lit. "village of the dragon god") to help his cousin Tsugumi manage a local hotel with hot springs. In the village there is an old legend: In ancient times, the village is protected by the dragon goddess. However, one day the dragon goddesses fell in love with a human, which is strictly forbidden, and this incident finally caused the village to be always covered by snow after that. The game then tells the daily life of the protagonist in the village, and finally links the story to the legend of dragon goddess.


All of the voice actors given are from console versions (DC, PS2 and PSP).
