Starting today, we will be hosting a unique campaign here at MangaGamer──The Hinamizawa Virus Bundle──for those struggling with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The tale of Higurashi When They Cry is one about a group of people banding together to face the threat of a mysterious virus that endangers their village.
For this campaign, the first chapter of Higurashi When They Cry will be made free-to-own on MangaGamer.com and Steam until an effective vaccine for COVID-19 is discovered. We will also be making chapters two through four available at 75% off until Tuesday, July 14th.
Since so many of you enjoyed our Valentine’s Bundle earlier this year, we wanted to end 2019 with a bang with two unique bundles: our Naughty and Nice VN bundle packs!
Starting right now, you can get seven amazing visual novels in each Naughty (18+) or Nice (all-ages) Bundle pack for $39.95―that’s a $400 value for both bundles!
Sale ends December 26th, so act fast before this incredible deal disappears!
Our Nice Bundle pack includes: Higurashi When They Cry Ch. 1-4, Umineko When They Cry Question Arc, Himawari – The Sunflower, OZMAFIA!!, The Shadows of Pygmalion, The Kiss For The Petals -Remembering How We Met-, and Space Live!
Our Naughty Bundle pack includes: Beat Blades Haruka, Imouto Paradise 1, Eroge! Sex & Games Make Sexy Games!, Kuroinu Ch. 1, Boob Wars, Please Bang My Wife, and Free Friends 1!
Due to the ongoing issues with our payment processor, customers are welcome to reach out to our customer support team via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to setup a manual PayPal payment for MG Points, which work like store credit, that could then be used instead of a credit card. If you would like to wait until our payment processor is back up and running, that is certainly an option!
Want your copy of Minagoroshi on Steam or GOG? No worries! We’ll be launching on both platforms later this week!
Hello, Kouryuu here! So today we’re actually going to be discussing a slightly more serious topic: Child welfare.
Higurashi Ch. 7 focuses a lot on a specific characters’ struggle with child welfare officials, and we decided to provide a brief look into the history of child welfare in Japan, and some of its problems—specifically its difficulty in handling cases of abuse, leading up to where it lay at the time of Higurashi, around 1983.
