[Game] Umineko no Naku Koro ni - Ep. 1 Legend of the golden witch

Today is the release date of Umineko at C72.

You are reading this because you know what this game is and why it's being anticipated.

Please carry on you discussion here. Hopefully this will get its own series thread when it becomes successful enough to be a yet another anime franchise.

I want to play this so badly it's not even funny. Will this game live up to the legacy of Higurashi? Or will the eccentric cast and plot make it a flop?

ARGH fly faster you piece of crap EMS.

I have to say one thing.

Ryu-chan is a master at pulling in people's interest!

So far, typical closed-circle mystery...

Spoiler for black Maria is moe:


And things are just getting warmed up...

Finished with main story. I patiently await this winter's Comike for Umineko Ep. 2

Spoiler for Tea Party (aka Otsukaresamakai):

Have any groups stated that they'd work on a translation for the game?
I can hope right?

Yeah right. I tried numerous of times to sprout interest when Tsukihime came out. No one cared. The same reaction with KimiNozo, Fate, and Higurashi. Basically people outside of Japan are not interested in these games until they see it in anime form. It's only then they start saying the same incessant remark "is the an English patch for this game lol."

So I'll be blunt - yeah right. You're never going to see this game translated by any "group" until it becomes animated. I suggest that it'd be simpler to buy the game and work through it with a Japanese dictionary at hand.

The following are from the Tea Party (Higurashi players, you would know this as the similar thing to the "otsukaresama-kai")


Spoiler for HIGHLY SUGGEST NOT TO READ UNTIL FINISHED WITH TEA PARTY:

I have a question. How many hours of reading is the first chapter of Umineko? I'd hate to play something as long as CLANNAD, though I'm sure that's not the case.

It can be done in less than a day - including the usual restroom and food breaks. That is of course, if you meet the pre-requisite of knowing Japanese.

Ever since I saw the trailers/promos on YT, the song being played was just awesome! Anyone know the title of it?

I wanna play Umineko. ;o;

u-u-u? xD Sounds weird.

Yep. A couple of people over at Hinamizawa Club are itching to get started on one, so it's actually looking pretty hopeful. While what kj says holds true 99% of the time, Umineko already has recognition just because it's related to Higurashi. Who knows, maybe this'll be the first time there's a patch out before the anime version actually starts airing

It's crazy but nice song.

I have question. Who exactly are the main characters of the story?
I assume they are Jessica, Battler (Batora), Maria, and (possibly) George).

I understand that the story is likely driven by all the characters. But eventually won't the visual novel focus on only one group of characters.

Also how is the in-game music?

And it's pretty cool of 07th Expansion to continue using nscripter. Despite the fact that kirkiri2 has been considereed superior.

Is it just mee or Umineko is as short as onikakushi-hen of higurashi?

I'm the one that is itching to translate this thing

so far
prologue, chapter 1 and 2 are looking incredibly short to me (ripped to MS-word they are only 5/14/16 pages)

Do the chapters get longer, kj1980?
Right now I'm unable to "play" it
