  1. “Top 10 Steam Titles
    1. Higurashi Series”
    To confirm: this is definitely counting each episode separately and adding them together?

    What are the rankings if we separate them into separate games?

  2. Just like every other year, I’ll be voting for Hatsuyuki Sakura. Someone out there seriously needs to start licencing Saga Planet’s visual novels.

  3. Glad to see the Kyonyuu Fantasy series doing so well. Here’s hoping this means we’ll get more of the series localized (plus the DLC) and more from Waffle’s library.
    As for me voted for the following:
    1) Sengoku Koihime X (and given there’s a nonH version, you could easily sell that on Steam)
    2) Evolimit
    3) The Silverio trilogy

  4. Please just add the Shin Koihime series
