I think I’ve been promising this for years at this point, eh?
Umineko When They Cry aka Umineko no Naku Koro Ni is the successor to Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, likely my favorite VN of all time, and I’m very excited to get into it. Consider this your last chance to weigh in on the format of Umineko. Right now, my plan is to hold posts until I’m done with a section, then post weekly, so by the time something goes live you can be sure I’ve at least finished that portion of it. I’m going to be extremely strict with spoilers for this, y’all. Please don’t make me have to issue bans. Please report offending comments ASAP, preferably to Farla or Mini-Farla so I don’t accidentally read them as I deal with them.
All I know going in: It’s a mystery structured like Higurashi involving Christie-style ‘rich people come together, bad things happen’, and Frederica Bernkastel is in it, meaning it takes place in the Higurashi multiverse. Which brings us to an important point:
There are absolutely 100% going to be Higurashi spoilers in this LP. Go read Higurashi first. It’s 100% worth it.
There are also spoilers here for Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. I highly rec reading that first as well, since I reference it under the assumption that everyone knows something of the plot. Also it’s very good.
I’ll be using the Steam release for this LP.
