By Request #1 - Higurashi: When They Cry - Part 2 - Chased by Shadows

Recently we opened up Commissions on our Ko-fi for people to get episodes covered for their favorite (or own!) game, and the first bite at the apple was by friend of the podcast, Francesco (The same one that came from New York to see us at Classic Game Fest!)

So for this Episode, we played the Second half of Episode 1 of fan favorite Visual novel, Higurashi: When They Cry, by Ryukishi07, as well as the optional epilogue and TIPS.

While this isn't the first game we've played that dealt with gruesome themes (Like Persona 3), I think I would be remiss to not mention that this game does deal with some dark and gory details, so proceed with caution.

If you'd like to play Higurashi, it's currently available from MangaGamer, who has it on Steam, GOG, and their own website, and each chapter of the game usually runs around 5 bucks.

If you do, I suggest playing it with the wonderful 07th Mod, which gives you more support for modern systems, and some quality of Life updates.

This is only 1/8th of the whole story, but if you'd like for us to cover Episode 2 and beyond, you can commission them yourself at
