Higurashi When They Cry takes place during June 1983, at a fictional rural village called Hinamizawa, which has a population of approximately 2000. The main character, Keiichi Maebara, moves to Hinamizawa and befriends his new classmates Rena Ryugu, Mion Sonozaki, Rika Furude, and Satoko Hojo. Keiichi joins their after-school club activities, which consist mostly of card and board games (and punishment games for the loser, usually him.) Hinamizawa appears to be a normal, peaceful, rural village to Keiichi. However, the tranquility abruptly ends after the annual Watanagashi Festival, a celebration to commemorate and give thanks to the local god, Oyashiro-sama. Keiichi learns that every year for the past four years, one person has been murdered and another has gone missing on the day of the Watanagashi Festival. Keiichi himself soon becomes drawn into the strange events surrounding the Watanagashi Festival and Oyashiro-sama.

Unfortunately, Higurashi is not available on Steam. However, it is a candidate on Steam Greenlight, which allows the community to decide which games should be released on the service. If you feel Higurashi should be released on Steam, you can vote for it.

Its been greenlit. So it is going to be on steam. However something happened with the version that was going to upload to steam so its going to be longer than originally planned.

Yes...this came first, then the anime series.

This is also from the same group that made the story about the Golden Witch, of which I am waiting for the PS3Fication of; only the first chapter was done.

One thing I should warn people about, I suppose.

The art, looks cutesy, and that may make you think it is that type of game.

No, the cute art is there to disarm you. To make you feel like it's a Disney flick and it's a fairy tale with everything going right.

Wrong. Lots of gore, lots of death, murder, ect. It's actually stupidly dark for how the characters are drawn.
