Publisher MangaGamer and developer 07th Expansion have discounted each entry of the Umineko When They Cry series on PC via Steam. There are 3 titles discounted, though they are all also included in a collective, affordable bundle. Question Arcs is 40% off for $14.99, Answers Arcs is 40% off for $17.99, and the 2D fighter, Umineko: Golden Fantasia, is 40% off for $14.99. The package containing all of the 3 aforementioned titles is 43% off for $45.57.
In Umineko, players witness the events that occur on the island of Rokkenjima. The Ushiromiya family is hosting a conference to discuss who will obtain the inheritance family possessed by the former family head following his passing. However, suspicions arise within each individual as the apparent presence of witches, and other strangers complicate matters. The truth of the inheritance and the strife that leads to reaching it is grand indeed.
While part of the When They Cry franchise, Umineko can be enjoyed standalone. It doesn’t boast the same ambiance of horror as Higurashi does, but its mystique and vast, diverse cast grant it a distinct sense of identity. If you purchase this collection, you’re going to be easily occupied for a pretty damn long time. It’s a substantial investment, but one worth the trek.
