Higurashi – When They Cry

Higurashi - When They Cry

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni takes place during June 1983, at a fictional rural village called Hinamizawa (based on the village of Shirakawa, Gifu, a World Heritage Site),which has a population of approximately 2,000. The main character, Keiichi Maebara, moves to Hinamizawa and befriends his new classmates Rena Ryuugu, 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. 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. In each story arc, he or one of his friends become paranoid, and a crime is committed. Usually, the crime involves the murder of one of their own friends. While it seems impossible to tell their delusions apart from the mystery of Hinamizawa, slowly the truth is revealed.

    nice hentai vn, thx for uploading this!

  5. Taelove says:

    ok, I downloaded it and everything, but it’s only giving me the first 3 chapters. Chapter 4 seems to be missing? Or do I have to play through them all to unlock chapter 4? Please help, I don’t know what wrong.

  8. Soundwave says:

    Im curios but where can I get the VA for this version or will I go having to look all over the place for it or is there no VA’s on this version like ive heard?

  9. Melonie says:

    Part two isn’t working for me-
    It says it’s broken…
    Anyway to fix that? I’m redownloading it but I don’t know if it’ll work.

  10. D-Pooly says:

    It always says that i need to wait 3 minutes and 33 seconds, but i didnt download anything recently…

  11. Bluerosebud says:

    Hi ^^; This might sound annoying, but I was wondering about these downloads and the fact that they look free, but you also provided a link to another site where you could buy the game. If I download this game free, will I not have all the content or will I be optionally pirating it, or…?

    • admin says:

      Yes, all the games posted here are 100% free. “Buy the game” links, as in description, are optional if you liked the free ( pirated ) version of the game and want to support game creator company afterwards.

  12. Otaku-Sama says:

    Thanks for the game.
    Can you upload the minigames / the japanese version with the minigame patch?

  13. RiKanna says:

    It has the original BGM?

  14. IMSOANGRY says:

    I downloaded it but I have to idea how to open it. It has given me a choice from windows media player, winRaR archiver, adobe reader 9.1, internet explorer, kingsoft powerpoint and a few others. I have tried the first 3 and they didnt work. I tried another and it didnt even open to tell me that it isnt working. im soooo fed up can someone please tell me what to use to open it. thanks

    • Anonymous says:

      Well, I doubt you’re still checking up on this, but if you are, you have to use 7-zip, winrar, or a similar application to unarchive the .rar files.

      Just look up how to unarchive .rar’s on google.

  15. D3ATHbyD3FUALT says:

    I really need a quick tutorial on this, it just wont let me download them. Keeps saying its generating but nothing happens.

  16. Soritu says:

    I Dloaded this and I only got 3 chapters wheres the 4th one?

  17. ripperhf says:

    I’m downloading this since the one I have contains only the first 3 arcs and I want to play it all soon.Still,thanks a lot for the downloads 😀

  18. Simon says:

    I really want to play (read?) this but am having problems downloading it – every time I try extracting the part files I keep getting “File is Broken” so nothing works – what do I do?

  19. Konata says:

    How do you exactly deal with part files? Do you simply put them altogether into one folder?

  20. Yurara says:

    1st, click on the \DA-Free: Game Download\ then click on Higurashi part1. On the next page that will appear, dont click on the Big \Download normal\ or \Download Premium\ buttons. Click on the \tel?chargement libre\ button (it means free download in french.) Next page that appears, write the captcha thingy and wait 120 seconds then click on the \creent le lien de tel?chargement\. Your download should start not long after you did that. Do the same thing for higurashi part2. I hope i helped.

    • D3ATHbyD3FUALT says:

      I tried that just now and the thing said my download was generating but it never started downloading. Do hope the PS2 patch will be up soon.

  21. megumi says:

    it says i have to download it using ilivid ? and it’s not working because i have i livid and it keeps on telling me to download i livid witch i already have installed ? so please help me :(?

    • History with this says:

      Then you’re clicking the wrong link, you do not need livid to use this, check to make sure you have the right link, it should not have a tiny blue arrow in the corner of it.

  22. slith says:

    use DA Free

  23. D3ATHbyD3FUALT says:

    I seem to not be able to download the games,it says that I can’t since its over 200 MB and the site says i’m not allowed.

    Help please?

  24. Lucky says:

    is it a game or what?

  25. Nemó says:

    The grammar is so bad, it gets on my nerves. It’s as if it was Google Translated, but I know it’s difficult to translate a Visual Novel. I just really loved the anime, and was a bit disappointed in the grammar here. The font is also pretty irritating, and I hate how you can’t adjust the size or color. I enjoy reading the VN version, though, it’s OK.

    I like the mystery the most, but I was also a bit disappointed in the absence of cutscene art. I was kind of looking forward to at least a bit of gore/blood.

    It’s interesting, but I was definitely expecting more. The drawings are also annoying, but I don’t want to get the PS2 patch, because the character’s seem to really lack expression. I want to be able to see their emotions…without the oversized hands.

    I’m in the middle of the 2nd timeloop, and I’ve noticed the second arc seems to have more difference from the anime than the first one. It’s a lot more interesting to read.

  26. Stuck says:

    So I downloaded the game, works, but I can’t get past the selection page. I hit Start and then these things pop up, I click yes but the last one I click yes but it just keeps popping up and I can’t get past it.

  27. whispers1997 says:

    lol sorry i JUST read some of the earlier comments.

  28. whispers1997 says:

    do you get to make choices in this vn or do you just click enter and watch the story….? Also is the second arc scary in the vn??? I’m waiting for my download…. it’s taking forever…

  29. Fiotok says:

    I am wondering if this is a problem with my extractor, and where I could get one that works.
    I can download the files fine, but when I try to extract them the part1 stops half way through and says it can’t be extacted and part2 won’t extract at all.

    I was also wondering if you need the original game to use this patch?

    Any help please?

    • Axyraandas says:

      Use WinRAR and Daemon Tools. WinRAR for the extractor, and Daemon Tools to mount the .iso file, which’ll show an autorun. No, you don’t need the original game, since I just installed it with no problems. They just add a few tracks to the BGM and improve the graphics. Nothing essential. Where is this patch, anyways?

      • Devlogger says:

        WinRaR works, and so does 7Zip. You don’t need to mount or install anything at all though, as far as I can tell; it works for me just by running the “higurashi.exe” file.

  30. Belnika says:

    is this for PC? thanks. BTW i’m new here.

  31. ianmaru says:

    Oh NVM, I figure it out after I read the older comments here.
    I didn’t know it has to be moved from the flash disk to PC first to get it work. :p

  32. ianmaru says:

    Guuyzz HELP PLEAASEE!!
    I’ve downloaded this game, but after I successfully extracted it, the game doesn’t work! It just keeps ‘not responding’. I’ve tried to play it on other laptop with different OS, but the outcome is still the same. What happened actually? Please is there anyone can help me? please respond, thanks ^^

  33. The Last Melody says:

    The links for the other chapters are dead ^_^

    • Duncan Idaho says:

      The links are not dead, they are broken, it seems the website cant link me to the other four chapters properly :/

  34. cryonics says:

    Hey admin just wanted to know when will chapters 5-8 be up? thanks ;]

  35. 1234 says:

    So people, any help?

    I am gonna finish tatigoroshi and don’t wanna be stuck without the 4 th arc.

    Any solutions?

  36. 1234 says:

    Uh, thanks for the download links, but I have a problem.

    These are supposed to be chapter 1,2,3 and 4 , right?
    Now there are 2 links, part 1 and part 2.

    How do I install them?
    If I install part 1, the program runs and shows 3 scenarios.
    one is onikakushi, a second one whose name I dont remember and the one which it says is the shortest…. in this order.

    there is no fourth scenario. How do I get that. Unpacking part 2 just replaces some files which i assumed would lead to data loss of parts 1,2,3 but the game ran and still showed scenarios 1,2,3 only(I did not delete the files which were not replaced during unpacking though)

    So, finally could someone tell the proper way to install this, along with parts 4-8.(also in 4-8, will I have to install them all in different folders and copy the same cg and music etc files to each of them, or is there way to have all the parts together in one folder).

    Thanks and sorry for the long rant, specific doubts give specific answers.

    • admin says:

      Oh, don’t confuse “archive parts” with “story parts”. This download contains all 4 story arcs (you need to complete first 3 to unlock 4th), but since filehosts allow only files up to 200MB size, whole game was split into two parts. You need to download both of them to play the game, but once you do, you get all 4 arcs in game.

      • 1234 says:

        Thanks for the reply Admin , you rock!!

        So how do I extract the archives?
        Is it done if I extract only part 1. My confusion is that both part 1 and 2 have files which have the same name (maybe winrar shows the files of part 2 in part 1 also).

        And does part 4 not even show up in the selection screen intil i complete the other parts.

        What about parts 5-8.Are they installed separately?

        Big thanks for the reply Admin. You are probably the only admin in the world who always reply to comments!!

  37. Avenger says:

    Ok since the other chapter links still lead to 404s, here are the urls to the working ones:

    Thanks before.

  40. Mikz says:

    Cant anyone know why cant I save the game O_o
    Everytime I save it , quit and return to , it disappears >”<
    Sorry for my bad English 😛

  41. Cyberworm says:

    Admin, sorry to bother you, but it seems like the second quartet of the chapters was not reuploaded in the process, as it sends me to a 404 error page. I apologize if this is an error on my part, I simply can’t find them.

    I also thank you from the bottom of my heart for (re)uploading all these fantastic novels, you are a truly good person to collect them all in one place. Thank you so much. 🙂

  42. Yuumei says:

    admin… are there any cg patch on this? i mean.. the ps2 cg patch

  43. Keiichi says:

    Is this english or Japanese?

  44. Rock2.1 says:

    and nalso does this game have any event cg?
    i’m only at the beginning but i didn’t see any..

  45. Rock2.1 says:

    does this version has any mini games or anything that u can actually chose?

  46. JustAGuytryingToDownloadStuff says:

    Woohoo many thanks!!!

  47. Hero Tanaka says:

    thanks for re-uploading them 😀

  48. JustAGuytryingtodownloadstuff says:

    ^This.
    Also if anyone could give proper explanation or a good link to download EVERYTHING related to this game, i’d be very grateful.
    Such a lovely series. (And i’ve only watched 7 eps of the anime yet,nothing else.)

  49. Havok says:

    Stupid SOPA… Please update link!

  50. Datenshi says:

    Is there any MF/RS link you can update please =)
    Thanks

  51. VirusX says:

    Excellent. I’ve been looking for a download for these for a long time.

    I’d also like to make a note of Higanbana no Saku Yoru Ni, the next Visual Novel series made by Ryushiki07. Should you ever find a download for a translated version, please make sure to put it on here.

  52. eragon says:

    Hello everyone,
    can someone please tell me where i can find the links for the higurashi voice and background patches?

  53. ren says:

    can anyone tell me is there any difference between higurashi vn and the anime adaptation? like a bit of difference in storyline and stuff?
    i already downloaded this,but i also have a lot vn’s on my list to read. so depending on you guys answer,ill either read it next or put it on hold for a while..
    anyways,for sure,ill play this eventually,its something i can i cannot miss afterall 😉

    • Anon says:

      there’s a massive amount of differences, the anime is a terrible adaptation, Higurashi is by far my favorite VN, but man.. in comparison the anime was awful.. they changed, censored and summarized (extremely poorly) everything

      • Anon says:

        oh, but of course I love Higurashi anime, is my favorite anime but the VN is 10000 times better

        • xDarkness says:

          compared to an anime or manga the VN is most likely MOAR AWESOME.
          That’s for F/SN, Higurashi and I believe 90% of all the other VNs…

          • MatsuoAkatsu says:

            I’m watching the anime (the first series, since I’m now reading Minagoroshi-hen, the 6th chapter), and I think it’s still useful to watch it alongside the Novel, having some “graphic” tips. For example, in Onikakushi episodes, the man in the car who tried to hit Keiichi, and the men who attacked him after he escaped from Rena were wearing the same uniform.
            Just a coincidence?

  54. eragon22 says:

    Hello,
    can you please tell me were i can download the background and voice patches? i don´t see them anywere.

  55. Zellrang says:

    GEHH~~ I hate this VN, it scared the hell every time X3~~~ at that just make me CAN’T STOP READING IT~~~ HELP~~~ I WANNA SLEEP~~ X3

  56. Count Monty says:

    Well, I finally decided to try and play these.

    Thank you, this makes it much easier to obtain them when they’re all in one.

    Too bad the second half isn’t, but at least I have a place to get them.

    HURRAY FOR CONVENIENCE!

  57. game says:

    You know? Now I really regretted watching anime first. As I think that anime is so kick ass, It couldn’t compared to either manga or sound novel. But I will recommended this to my aunt for sure. She’s a big fan for mystery novel and Higurashi is truly a masterpiece!

  58. TakanoMiyo34 says:

    So far , I’ve downloaded Meakashi-hen (Cuz its my favorite) I just recently downloaded Chapters 1-4 , But keep getting some strange message when I open it up to its main menu! I need help ! D:

  59. Aloha says:

    Oh, I see ^^

    I’m reading Himatsubushi right now. Akasaka FTW! But all the Mahjong thing with Ooishi is awful, I don’t understand what are they talking about D:

    I’ll upload the novels anyway, there are friends that wants them. Well, I want them to know Higurashi, so to speak xD

  60. Aloha says:

    No, the voice version is for PS2. The texts of that version aren’t in english, only japanese. There are original arcs (from the PC game) that don’t appear in the PS2 version (the voiced ver.), so these arcs would be without voices if I put a voice patch in the original games (the translated ones). The Matsuribayashi arc, for example, is only in the original novels, so it has no voice patch.

    Also, the original arcs that appear in the voiced version have some differences with the PC version, so the voices would not… uh… match the text and the situation often. Desynchronization and shit, all the time. There is a voice patch, I remember it… But it’s so “green” and has the problems that I said.

    And this is a novel. A novel, not a game. This is for reading, like a book, but with AWESOME music (the original music, my version includes it), backgrounds, and character sprites. The voices would be annoying, not letting you hear the AWESOME music. Specially in Kai arcs. If you want voices, only imagine it. You have watched the anime, you can imagine the voices. I really suggest you to read it without voices.

    Sorry for explaining too hard, I did it for people that know nothing about sound novels, not for you ^^u

    About my uploads, I’m… What’s the word? Agh, my english is terrible. I’m… Ah. I haven’t time to upload the novels now, but I’ll do it this week, that for sure. Wait a little, okay? I don’t want anyone to download a buggy version or that stupid version with replaced music and ugly sprites that is everywhere.

    I’ll come here in few days. See you!

    • Neanis says:

      Ah, thank you for the answer 🙂

      It´s just that i like voiced games better than the unvoiced. it adds more to the feeling (for example Rena´s USO DA! I love it.. xD). I would play this game anyway even if it had no voices (actually i did start already 😛 almost completed onikakushi-hen). i was just curious because i saw videos on youtube which contained voices and read about a voice patch..
      I already have my version fully patched with the better Sprites, backround and BGM, so only the voice patch would be missing. But if it´s that bad, i dont want to use it^^.

      thanks 😀

      • Aloha says:

        Agh, I always fail to reply a comment. Alkajdsd.

        However, I hope you enjoy Onikakushi-hen! ^^

        You’ll be surprised with Watanagashi-hen. Specially in the talk of Rena and Keiichi with “Mion” in her mansion. The true past of Hinamizawa is something that they censored in the anime, for its CREEPY references to the war… It’s really interesting, with Mion’s grandfather and all. And this arc (like all of them) does a great work making the reader feel exactly like Keiichi. You really can forget that “Mion” is Shion while reading, It’s awesome.

        But Tatarigoroshi-hen is the fucking best in the novels. A true masterpiece~

  61. Aloha says:

    (Sorry for my bad english)

    Mmmm… The site where I downloaded the eight chapters is broken. And… Uh… Well, if I can’t find them quickly, I’ll upload the novels by myself. Just wait. What server do you want? I will include PS2 graphics and THE ORIGINAL, BEAUTIFUL AND AWESOME MUSIC. ASLKDJASD. Not the crappy replaced BGM.

    These novels are the best of the best. The Higurashi anime is so fucking shitty as adaptation. SO. FUCKING. SHITTY. But as anime, it’s very very good~

    PS: A warning to you all, people. If you download the novels with the PS2 graphic patch already patched, it would be very problematic and buggy in the later part of Onikakushi. Download the patch and patch the novel by yourselves. Sorry again for my english.

  62. Aloha says:

    I’ll help you. Wait a little~

  63. zz78 says:

    um…. the links give me a 4kb file “higurashi.rar” it’s supposed to be about 243 mb, right?

  64. Neanis says:

    i have a question… is there any chance to get the voice patch for this game? every link i find is dead or removed.
    Admin, if you got the voices for this game, could you please upload them?

    thank you 🙂

  65. croPath says:

    thx for having this i loved this series since i saw the amazing anime version its too bad that some chapters are exclusive to other systems

  66. takashi42 says:

    Does anyone have the original version? If so, please share it. thanks

  67. Kevin says:

    Hmm I can’t find the Himatsubushi chapter

  68. robert c says:

    is this even an ecchi game? or is it about psyco murderers and crap?
    im playing it and ive seen nothing eroge yet at all

  69. Chris says:

    –> Wei Yan .. Fileserve and Fileshare(or so my memory says the name of the other one is) only allows ONE download .. so you’ll have to wait for the current download to finish before being allowed to do another one ..

    Umm anyone .. is this game good .. I’m searching for a case solving Eroge .. I’m hoping this game has that feature since the overview gave me that impression ..

    Thanks and Good Luck ^_^

    • Kei says:

      its not an eroge, but its really good if you want to work up your brains.
      im in the middle of solving higurashi too, but i’ve finished Umineko no naku koro ni [its the second game developed by Ryu 07, after higurashi] and i must say i am extremely pleased with Umineko 😀

      really love it to bits. im very satisfied with higurashi so far.

  70. H-Fan says:

    Can you tell me which chapter does this version cover? I’ve got the version with first 3 chapters, should I download it?

  71. NoOne says:

    Admin, do you have original (Japanese) version of When They Cry? If you have please share with me.

  72. RedStar says:

    Tnx! Your site is awesome!

  73. Eterne says:

    wow.. higurashi.. im interested but.. is this really as intense as i think it is??.. im somewhat weak-hearted.. lol.. but if anyone wants to really recommend it.. please do so.. ^^

    and admin thanks for all the hard work.. currently enjoying my 6th game from here so far.. 😀

    • Rhian says:

      I would really recommend this game. I haven’t actually read this sound novel yet, I’ve only read manga chapters, watched all the anime, and played Umineko. so, I’m not sure of the more “gore” and “horror” aspects that people attribute to this. The manga and anime may be more intense. i know for sure the Umineko anime was more intense than the sound novel in my opinion. it could just as well be the same for Higurashi as well. But anyway, I definitely think Higurashi has an awesome story that is well worth reading.

  74. Higu says:

    Whenever I extract it, it stops at the middle saying that there’s an error or something. And when I click the new game, a message box appears… It’s all gibberish <_<

  75. Kiiro says:

    Very nice game… and nice website 😀 Thanks a lot XD

  76. claire says:

    hyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…. higurashiiiiiiiiii X3

  84. Luigy says:

    All The Hotfile links in this site are down and I really want to get some of the games here like KiraKira – Curtain Call and Higurashi When They Cry

    • admin says:

      Just like you said – most of hotfile links were removed. I’m uploading all games again to fileserve now, but it’s over 300 GB of data so it takes time. Be patient.

  85. djr7 says:

    file has been removed???
    i can download crack it looks like but the game says its been removed
    PLZ HELP!!!

  86. Confused says:

    It says there is chapters 1-4 included in the download, but the game only has three listed. Is there actually only 3 chapters?

      All four are there.
      You have to complete Tatarigoroshi (the 3rd) before Himatsubushi (the 4th) is unlocked.
      However, you can forcefully unlock the 4th chapter by clicking Extra in the menu, clicking Unlock Previous Chapters, then clicking Tatarigoroshi.

    The crack download doesn’t work for me anymore… It did for a bit, but now when I try to open it, I just get an error screen… What should I do?

  88. Zizi says:

    I have both of the versions downloaded. What does it mean to place the cracked file into the directory? Because I’ve tried what I think it means via WinRAR, and I keep getting error messages. What am I doing wrong?

  89. Zfish9 says:

    I’m having the same problem as Civ. I got the game downloaded, moved the cracked exe into the Higurashi directory, and all I get is a black window that doesn’t respond.

  90. Ally says:

    @Andrew
    Himatsubushi-hen is unlocked when you finish Tatarigoroshi-hen(the 3rd arc)

  99. Andrew says:

    Hey there. Just wanted to check, after downloading this, I don’t see the 4th arc (Himatsubushi) available. Is it unlocked through gameplay or just missing?

  100. Civ says:

    I put the crack download in the regular folder but even then it just has a black screen for a while and then says(Not Responding) before closing itself. Any suggestions?

  101. Anon? says:

    @ditto
    you have to put the crack files into the game folder, the game should work that way

  102. ditto says:

    i dunno how to get it to work ;-;
    i have the crack file download and the normal downloaded too but i don’;t know how to get them to work

  103. John says:

    Any reason why there are 2 “when they cry” games to download from this wonderful site? 🙂

    I saw that ep 5-6 are released in english but I havnt been able to locate them. If you find them/have any luck it would be nice 🙂

  104. ??? says:

    Now, there aren’t any decisions! But it’s great, anyway!
    Oh my God, I’ve been looking for this everywhere!
    😀 Hauu! ~Going mad with the Hinamizawa Syndrome~!

  105. JustWondering says:

    are there any decision points in this game (i ask because i have been playing for a while and one has yet to come up)

  106. Anaerobia says:

    wow….all you have to do is place the cracked exe in your higurashi directory…the error message you are getting means that it can’t find the archive files….

  107. 07 says:

    Same problem as keiichi and Desu. Clicking on the crack only gets me a pop-up titled “Error!!”. Then there’s some japanese characters and [ system.arc : ipl._bp ], that spacing exactly. Any ideas?

  108. That Guy says:

    Thank you so much for posting these! I had just finished watching the anime, and i heard that the sound novels where better so i had to check them out!

  109. ryo says:

    admin are you a god?!The god of all the eroge and visual novel in english!!^^

  110. Desu says:

    Ah, I’m having the same problem as ‘keiichi’ up there. Whenever I attempt to open the cracked file, higurashi.exe , it sends a message titled ‘Error!!’
    Maybe I’m doing something incorrectly, but if there’s a way for you to help, it’d be much appreciated!
    Thank you for all of your dowloads. (:
