Kinetic Novel
A sub-category of Visual Novels which avert the tradition of having Multiple Endings and instead focusing on a singular, linear plot. There are no choices whatsoever, nor is there any form of interactivity involved. Originally used to describe certain visual novels by Key Visual Arts (notably Planetarian), it has since then been used to encompass other visual novels.

07th Expansion (makers of the When They Cry series) refer to these as "sound novels," referring to the use of background music and sound effects to "punctuate" the story.
