Gahkthun of the Golden Lightning


The year is 1908. The 20th century is still young.
An unfamiliar 20th century – in an unfamiliar world.
This is a world that experienced a 19th century very different from our own. A world filled with innumerable steam-powered “Engines.”
The unnaturally rapid development of this steam civilization has left the world’s skies shrouded in grey… and its seas dyed black.

“Sea” – Once, the word suggested an expanse of blue. Today, it refers to something dark and putrid.
The former harbor city of Marseille in the European Kingdom of France looks out on a sea as black as any other. But these particular waters are home to something that can’t be found anywhere else on Earth…
A massive artificial island, solid and imposing as a fortress. A city in its own right, but also a school; a place bursting with life and color.
Its formal name: The Marseille Offshore Academia.

In the spring of 1908… A single young man appears within its walls.
After declaring his intent to wage war against its powerful Governing Council, he introduces himself in this way:
“Nikola Tesla. 72 years old. I’m a transfer student.”
“Students of the Marseille Offshore Academia. My hundred thousand young friends, cursed by fate.”
“…I will save every last one of you with my own two hands.”

And at the summit of Château d’If, a bell rings out.
The Bell of Gahkthun, announcing that the time of rejoicing is at hand…

  1. Hey Guys,

    I saw that this is a 17+ VN, aren’t there any H-Scenes?
    Or is it identical to the japanese Version?

  2. Admin, it seems that part 03 of the downloads is missing or corrupted. (something weird happened to my previous message)

  3. Admin,+it+seems+that+part+03+of+the+downloads+is+missing+or+corrupted+because+I+can’t+seem+to+get+them+to+download.

  4. Why does my OP only show green screen? When I opened the game, the sound for the OP plays but all I can see is green screen? But the game works fine I think. I’m just scared that all videos/movies in the game will only have green screen which I think would take away some of the game’s glory

  5. I love that VN . It taught me : If you love someone or has problem with your family , just tell them about that . Don’t keep that feeling , it will “kill” you slowly and make you become terrible person

  6. Can someone explain what this game about?
    when you play as Neon, first she some kind of student,after that she waitress,and afther that she sold as slave.
    too hard to understand.(sorry for bad english)

  7. Apparently Neon only has sex with Tesla, while he fucks around with multiple women. Way to cop out HALF THE FANBASE of this franchise, guys. Not like women enjoy reading about sex too or anything.

    1. If Neon have sex with multiple men that would be a problem. Male and female are different, you can call men the attackers and women the defenders. As attacker the more “castles” you are able to take the better. But as the defender the more attackers you repel the more appealing you are, in fact only allowing 1 invited guest in make you that more valuable.

          1. The idea that a wife has a list of men to compare her husband to is said to be troubling. That’s why I lol in doujins when the girl loses her virginity and proclaims it was the best. Based on what?

        1. well the analogy may be off but i do you have consider the different biological nature between men and women.

          1. male is fertile for a longer part of their life spam. so when your female partner is no longer fertile male still can reproduce.

          2. it is far easier for male to go and impregnate a bunch of different female then it is for the female to be impregnated by a bunch of different men.

          3. during pregnancy and shortly after the female is very vulnerable/occupied where the protection by the male is desired.
          However there is no such biological constrain for the male, in fact the male still holds mating desire when the female is in a state that is unable to do so

      1. Nice try, that’s just a scheme to control what women do with their vaginas. And that control extends to sex and reproduction.

    2. What the flying fuck are you talking about? Did you even play the game? Almost every single of the girls there are like Tesla’s Daughters, he DOES NOT want to bang’em, as a matter of fact, Jo is the only girl aside from Neon that shares a bed with him, and that’s only because she forced him using her art. And even when he sleeps with neon it’s just because she really wanted it.

  8. The game seems to be very deep, but I am having the problem of “So much was written, yet nothing was said”. The VN tries to be deeper than it needs to be, and I was content with the starting grim and dark themes. But the more I progressed, the more I lost interest, since the narrative was dragging on. Also, the timed choices seemed like a good idea, but it actually doesn’t have any sense since you can just reload the save game before the choice was made. I mostly enjoyed the parts with Tesla, but the parts with Neon alone were pretty bland and uninteresting. Also, the characters could have used more backround to give the readers at least some immersion.

    Those things are even alright, but the setup is what always irked me the most in futuristic/alternate history VN and games – steampunk. Seriously, the VN would have fared better with the old fashion futuristic setting, not the overused steampunk. I know, it adds to the darkness of the story and blah blah blah, but that is the very definition of being overused.

    My verdict for this one is 6/10, I am not sure if I really want to finish this one, even though I got quite far with it.

  9. What does the silent mode in config do?

    And about the choices you will figure if they are wrong or right by listening to Tesla afterward. Just save on every choice.

    Damn the Auto correct on Swiftkey changing my words.

  10. What does the silent mode in config do?

    And about the choices you will figure out of they are wrong or right by listening to Tesla afterward. Just save on every coffee

      1. Female protagonist doesn’t automatically mean a otome game, just look at Shikkoku no Sharnoth, Raidy, Yuri games and many others.

    1. It has two protagonists actually, So no need to fear about it being another cringy otome game.

      ….Oh crap here they come better hide.

  11. this game had a bug where there wasnt voices for some of the characters in the second half and a patch to fix it was linked to by the coders twitter account an hour ago.

    can you pls reupload patched version or upload the patch by itself (assuming it works on versions of the game which arent legit)

    1. In around 20 minutes or so. I have the files prepared already – just a bit of testing left to see if everything works properly.

      1. I am actually sorry about that. I was really impatient even though you actually provide all these games for free. I apologize for my impatience. Thx for all your hard work.

    1. They finished translating it, but haven’t yet released the patch to the public. It should come out later today. Of course, you will find it posted here as soon as it does.
