Clannad HD

Clannad HD

After the death of his mother, Tomoya Okazaki—a guarded delinquent student at Hikarizaka High School—struggles to not only make sense of the abusive relationship he has with his alcoholic father, but also find meaning in his life. While on his way to class one morning, he meets a mystifying girl named Nagisa. She is a delinquent like him, but only because she is repeating her senior year, unlike the perpetually tardy Okazaki. From their brief encounter, Nagisa decides they should be friends, and enlists Tomoya’s help to revive the school drama club. Not being busy in any way, he decides to join in. Along the way, the two make friends with many other students and try to find both solace and belonging in their endeavors.

All visuals have been upgraded to 1280×960 for the Steam release of CLANNAD.

  1. hey their guys just want to as a couple of things.

    1st is if the side characters other than the main heroine have their own story that’s different or similar to the anime adaptaion.

    2nd if the VN is anything like the movie if there is any other VN that are like Clannad?

    1. Koihime Musou is like Clannad as well. It’s a Romance of the Three Kingdoms adaptation, but vastly different than the anime.

    2. There are other similar visual novels from the same people who created Clannad(Key, Visual Arts). Kanon and Air were made before Clannad, and One ~To the Radiant Season~ was made by the same people before they actually formed Key.

      Kanon and One are the most similar, having slice-of-life high school students with 5-6 girls/routes, with bits of supernatural phenomena having impacts on some girls. Kanon and Air have anime adaptations as well (Kanon has two, technically, but the 2011 version is considered the better version)

  2. Hey guy,
    I hope you can help me out, I really don’t know if it’s some kind of ending or something. But for me Tomoya, after talking to fuu-chan goes home, lies down and sees the snow again from the beginning. And then it goes back to the homescreen. Can someone please explain why? I need help, I am in love with the game way too much.

  3. Hi, i downloaded all the parts but i cant find a setup option, is there a way to put an shortcut on my desktop?

  4. Hello,

    Could you Update this?
    Since Yesterday there is a new Version on Steam with the Engine-Version:

    This Version has:

    Thank you.

  5. I watched a comparison video on Youtube, and found I much prefer original fan translation (it was more emotive and poetic). Any chance we can get that uploaded as well?

      1. Awesome, thanks so much for making this file available and letting me know! 🙂

        FYI, only Clannad HD is listed on the Downloads page…

  6. ugh…forget it…will buy it from steam.had problems downloading parts 21 and 20,and then its ruined the other download links.not going though it all again.

  7. meh…this is the biggest game I downloaded….I usually don’t download anything that has more then 15 parts at the most.but I read good reviews.

  8. Does anyone else have the problem where it brings up the game screen, but it’s completely black, and after you set the resolution options.. it stays a black+screen?

  9. I dont have any software to open a .rar file. Is there a free program I can use? Did I maybe make a mistake? Please help, thanks.

  10. anyone else with problems starting the game? i try starting it and all there comes is an error about not enough system recources and then my pc sais that it is a virus

    1. Yes i have the same error and I didn’t find a solution yet..
      if anyone knows how to solve it can they share it here please?

  11. Will there be Ushio in this game? or They will do a small one with Ushio in it? I have installed it but I haven’t played it yet, I just want to know if I will encounter an arc where ushio will be present 🙂 I love Ushio <3

  12. This is the steam release right? Do you have the steam release of planetarian? I remember it was here but I can’t find it anymore.

  13. Well, actually, I only download this today, and yet I have no idea how to install, I do have ideas, first is that I have to put in Steam directory D:\Steam\SteamApps\common, second is simple after finish extracting, just run

  14. So, when I download it, it says it’s a .rar file, but the icon shows an adobe pdf file and when I open the file after downloading, it opens Adobe pdf, how do I fix this? This happens on every download.

    1. Do u have .rar or zip softwares? I guess it needs softwares to turn file into zip or rar. If not u can try by downloading one

  15. So I am thinking of playing this game right now, but I absolutely cant stand BAD and most of all BITTERSWEET endings.
    Are the routes actual happy endings or some kind of train into onionabyss ?

    1. This was made in early 2000’s, I don’t know if you haven’t watch any anime back then but this style of art was typical and the moe genre was getting started.

  16. Clannad is one of the most overrated visual novels ever created so no one’s gonna miss anything if they read something else. It’s the one game I’d never give another try from Key.

  17. I’ve used this site in the past and all, but people, please DON’T download this!!! If you like Clannad, please buy the game on Steam so Key can get money for creating this awesome visual novel. Please!!

    1. Sorry but I don’t want to buy it without the sexual content.

      They would have to release an (un)official patch with the cut content like Starless for having my money.

        1. Thanks for the clarification.

          >Those scenes made me cringe.

          yes, Key are pretty bad when it comes to sex. (but I can fap with them anyway)

      1. I will assume you are either new to reading VN or only read eroge.Clannad never and I mean NEVER had any sexual content.Nothing was cut from the game. Despite the fact that I do not like sekai as a publisher, this time they released what is essentially one of the greatest visual novels of all time. And this version is a vast improvement (the fan translation was subpar and unreadable at some points, so much so that even the translator admitted that it was bad). In the future please do proper research before discrediting other peoples work.

        1. Sorry I’ve erroneously supposed that there was sex with the heroine at the end of his ruote like every other Key visual novel I’ve played.
          Anyway without “reward” sex at the end of the route I don’t feel motivated. I pass.
          You guys have fun, and don’t cry for me, I start Euphoria.

          1. Well, that is sad, by ignoring this VN you are missing out in a VN that will always be at the very least in the Top 5 best VNs ever.

          2. I wouldn’t say it’s a solid top 5 but it’s more a top 10 around the 7~10 mark being generous. There are much better VNs out there than Clannad that aren’t even translated yet or will probably never be translated at all.

          3. I agree a little, but this VN is the only one that will make you cry buckets of tears(like me, either in the VN or anime version, i cried a lot!), so this VN worth the buy on steam, it one of thoses storys that make history, and i say what i allways tell to my friends to recomend this VN:
            IT’S A MASTERPIECE

  18. Thanks, but for the first time i’m not gonna get my VN from here, for me, this is the one Visual Novel that deserves to be bought 🙂

  19. Thanks admin, although I’m going to buy this on steam I wanted to thank you for your continued hard work over all of these years. I was a freshman in high school when I first stumbled on this site and now I’m working full-time. This site is very nostalgic for me, really happy to see it up after all this time.

  20. More and more od “no sexual content” published 🙁
    Whats happening to you admin? Ur gf found out ur stash?

    1. “What happened”? I mean, he’s uploading what’s out and available. When more games with sexual content come out with translations, he’ll upload them. But recently, a lot of VNs without sexual content have been taking off. Which is actually a good thing, because it opens up people who have reservations about the pornographic side of visual novels to the medium as a whole.

      That aside, thank you so much, Admin! I’ve been waiting on this to come out without the bugs of the original fan translation. You’re awesome, man! Keep doing what you do <3

  21. I already played it…
    Well I guess I’ll just DL it coz its HD

    Admin how about Sound of Drop -fall into poison-/Shizuku no Oto
    pls 😀

    1. Well, as the name implies – biggest difference if in improved graphics resolution – up to 1280×960 in this version. Additionally, the translation is supposedly improved compared to previous fantranslated version. Also, they added “dangopedia” – encyclopedia of sorts, that’s supposed to explain some terms that western players may be unfamiliar with.

      1. Can confirm the translation is MUCH better than it was in the original. It’s not perfect but reads much smoother and is a better experience overall.

  22. OH MY GOD… you are the greatest and most wonderful person in the world… thank you so much…we do not deserve your kindness…do we?
