Umineko When They Cry

Umineko When They Cry

Welcome to the world of “Umineko When They Cry” (When Seagulls Cry)
Welcome to the Rokkenjima of October 4, 1986.

You have been given a chance to catch a glimpse of the family conference held annually by the Ushiromiya family.

The remaining life in the old family head
who has built up a vast fortune is very slim.

To his children, the greatest point of contention at this family conference
is the distribution of his inheritance.
Everyone desires all that money, no one relents, and no one believes.

Who will gain the old head’s vast inheritance?

Where is the 10 tons of gold that the old head is said to have hidden?

Can the unnerving riddle of the epitaph which is said to point to
the location of that gold be solved?

In the midst of this, a suspicious letter is sent from one claiming to be a witch.

The presence of a 19th person on this island,
which should only have 18, begins to hang in the air.

Brutal murders repeat, and unsolvable riddles are left at the scene.

How many will die? How many will live? Or will everyone die?

Is the culprit one of the 18, or not?

Is the culprit a “human”, or a “witch”?

    is there a relation with this game and higurashi?

    • CaramElle says:

      Umineko is like the spiritual successor of Higurashi, except it’s more fantasy oriented. There are characters who are implied/explicitly related to Higurashi characters, so the ties are pretty strong between the two series.

    After I extracted all the files from winrar, when I clicked the application it says”failed to start”. I noticed after that, the steam_appi.dll or something got deleted(?) on it’s own. And when I clicked the file again it says ”the program can’t start because steam_appi.dll is missing from your computer” any help?

    • admin says:

      Files don’t disappear on their own. My guess is that your antivirus deleted some (false positive) and that’s why game is unable to start.

      • mementomori says:

        Thanks, it’s just like you said. It seems that my Malwarebytes automatically deletes the stean_appi.dll file. It works now heh

    The art looks different.
    IMO Fan-translation one has better art.
    Unless maybe you can change the art like Higurashi?

    Also don’t expect any choices except in the last episode.
    This VN is about story and mystery.
    Just enjoy the ride. If you’re not enjoying it after 1-3 episode then maybe this isn’t for you.

    I’ve played up to the sixth episode and then skipped most of the text till the end. All I want to say is that you shouldn’t expect this VN to be that much of a mystery ride where you try to find all the clues in a grand last reveal, you just try to find all the clues that move the story in the most logical away possible so that you won’t stop reading it. In the end you either wake up, or dream forever.

    • ScienceCat says:

      Probably the right choice. Honestly I hate everything after 6.

    • Ex Nihilo says:

      Spoiler:

      The detective part is over after chapter 6. Than it’s all about the truth. But I think a hobby detective veteran could even make sense of it if only have played chapter 1-4. In retroperspective there is everything already placed in the open. You just have to find the beginning and than use sharp logic. We all failed at that because we liked it as a witch story even when the game itself told us nonstop that there cannot be a witch if the culprit should be human.

      God I miss the afternoons on Rokkenjima…

    How is this different from the other version? All 8 chapters in 1? English voice actors? Also, FIRST!

    • admin says:

      It’s official English release (previous one that’s already posted was a fantranslation). Chapters 1-4 (question arcs). Better artstyle..

      Overall, if you already read original (with console graphic patch), there’s no point in downloading it, but if you haven’t – this is the version you should be getting.
