* Higurashi When They Cry is a sound novel.
The format of this product is a sound novel.
The music, backgrounds and characters work together to create a world that is the stage of a novel for the user to read.
They laugh and cry and get angry. The user takes the point of view of the protagonist to experience the story.
An important point to note here is the absence of what is commonly called choices and forks.
This means that you are freed from the tedious saving and loading, the searching for events and routes, and can instead enjoy the story from the beginning to the end.
Nevertheless, this is a game, not a novel.
As the player, you will be able to unravel the mystery surrounding the events in the game as the scenarios unfold.
You can ponder on the nature of the mystery by yourself when you're on the train, you can discuss it with your friends, you can search for clues on the Internet or you can even file complaints on the circle's website. The choice is yours.
This is Higurashi When They Cry, a serial murder themed sound novel that doesn't offer you any choices, but does offer you the opportunity to search for the truth yourself.
Will you fear? Will you become engrossed? Will you face the challenge? Only you can decide how to enjoy the story.
