Howdy folks! We just wanted to let you know that Dead End Junction is now out on MangaGamer and Steam! It's a "digital dime novel" with a strong character driven narrative set in a uniquely Japanese take on the Old West. Written by Hidume from 773, creator of the Cherry Tree High series, this visual novel combines a good dash of 773's flair for humor with a compelling story-line that also isn't afraid to tackle some of the hard-hitting themes relevant to the setting, including the treatment of native peoples and the scars left by the Civil War.

Adventure. Gunslingers. Outlaws. Shoot-outs. War.
You’ll find none of those things in the one-horse town of Cow Stone Bell, as Jo will be the first to tell you.

But after a letter arrives from the President addressed to her no-good and nowhere to be found father, fate conspires to give her exactly what she wished for—wrapped up in a journey that will take her farther from home than she ever expected. Unfortunately, Jo is about to learn that a life of adventure may not be all it’s cracked up to be...
