12 Days of Visual Novels: Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning


For our final installment of the twelve days of visual novels we’d like to celebrate our last release of the year––coming out in just a few hours––Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning, with a comment from the game’s author and director, Sakurai Hikaru:

『黄雷のガクトゥーン』監督・脚本 桜井光

A comment from Sakurai Hikaru, author and director of “Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning”
When asked where the home of “steampunk” lies, our answer must surely be “the English-speaking world.”
And today, thanks to a great deal of dedicated assistance, the newest entry in the Far Eastern “Steampunk Series” of works – “Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning” – is being released in English translation.
One might well call this a “homecoming” of sorts.
And so, let me offer you these words – from the bottom of my heart.
─We’re home, motherland!

Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning will be going on sale tonight at midnight EST! You can still snag it for 10% off if you pre-order, or if you prefer points Gahkthun will be joining the triple points campaign upon release.
