It got a little boring during the middle parts of each path that were almost identical to the others (I got sooooooooooooooooo tired of that stupid kick-the-can game DX), but it was really fun to see the different relationship dynamics (and refreshing that they weren't all romances!), and the final unlockable path that brought them all together...was just amazing. The friend who recommended it to me called the game "freaky," and I was like, "Yeah, whatever, I've seen this kind of thing before." Then I got to the part where SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Kid looks in the mirror and it's a different face and I was like, "WHAT IS THIS MY ENTIRE LIFE IS A LIE ALKDJGSLKGHAS:DLFJADKGJ:SDLJ *dead*"
Seriously, anyone with a bit of patience needs to play/read/whatever this VN. Definitely worth it, despite a few bits of innuendo (that can go right over your head unless you're thinking that way, I expect).
And I think I'm going to try out Umineko when I have a bit more time. I'd shied away from it before because I didn't think I could get my hands on English translations of the entire thing. But now I think I'll give it a go, because it looks like precisely my cup of tea
I really wish there were more VNs that weren't quite so explicit. It's a really interesting medium, and has a lot of potential for coolness, I think.

It looks deep, but I'm wary of it because it also looks dark. Can anyone tell me about its philosophical and theological content? I don't wanna play something that makes it seem like there's no hope.
Actually, let me change that just a little. Even if it does make it seem like there is no hope to you, I still think you should read it, because Narcissu shows exactly how some people in this world feel, and as a Christian, I think we need to understand others' suffering the best we can or else any proclamations of hope we give them will sound empty and ignorant.

Now there observation I made most people (based on steam reviews) say these are short visual novels and they may well be short. There not like animation or a video game where your goal is to complete the game in one sitting. There meant to be taken in pieces like a piece of pie or pizza, only a couple hours a day. If you do this then you will have find a much more satisfying experience and you can justify the $10 price tag. If you try to rush through in 1 sitting like eating a whole pie at once your gonna feel not satisfied enough because you will want more but there will be none left to give.
It sort of like an dramatic full cast audio book with static images that help enhance your brain to play it as movie. That the best way I can describe it. I hope this helps everyone.
besides can you recommended any more clean visual novels be greatly appreciated on steam.

the_wolfs_howl wrote:Okay, I'm getting myself all confused again, so I'm going to ask those who've played Higurashi/Umineko. So...they're in the same series, right? Are their stories connected, or are they like "spiritual sequels," if you will? I mean, is Higurashi necessary to understand Umineko, and does Umineko continue the story of Higurashi?
Also, I finally got around to looking them up on Steam since someone mentioned that at one point, and it looks like they only have chapters 1 and 2 of "Higurashi When They Cry Hou". What does the "Hou" mean? I'm getting very confused - is this just a different version with updated artwork and such, or is this a whole different story? Also, does anyone know if they're planning on putting more chapters up on Steam? I'd really like to be able to pay for this VN, but I haven't been able to figure out how to buy it in English anywhere else :C
