HIGURASHI - When They Cry (ep1)



I've watched the anime of this, and if the visual novels are anywhere near as good they will rival Phoenix Wright for story. Downloading now, and will post impressions.

Well, not really like Phoenix Wright. It's more like a book with sound effects and pictures in the background. But the storyline (anime, at least) is absolutely amazing. And since these games are what the anime was based off, the story should be just as good. Not to mention it's free.

Just played a little bit of the game. The art isn't amazing, but it's still got the same creepy atmosphere the anime had.

Make sure you play it with sound, though. The opening doesn't have anywhere near as much impact without it.

And for those that are worried, the translation is very well done.

Lastly, despite what it seems like from the start, this is not a dating sim. It is very much a horror mystery story, like the app description says.
