The 07th Expansion developer sale puts a temporary cut to prices on all the games offered on Steam by the studio. Discounts range from 10% off to 50% off. In some regions, this puts the minimum price for some items at under $2 USD.
The 07th Expansion games on sale include the episodes of the Higurashi When They Cry series, as well as the Umineko When They Cry titles, and the latest game in the franchise, Ciconia When They Cry. The only game not discounted is the first chapter of Higurashi When They Cry, because it’s already free.
Higurashi When They Cry is a murder mystery set in the sleepy rural town of Hinamizawa. Keiichi Maebara, a new arrival in town, learns that murders and disappearances accompany the annual Watanagashi festival, and that the town is thought to be “cursed” by its guardian deity, Oyashiro.
Umineko When They Cry takes place on a private island, where the wealthy clan Ushiromiya has gathered to negotiate an inheritance. Unfortunately for all involved, the “Golden Witch” Beatrice is involved in the proceedings. A fighting game, Umineko: Golden Fantasia, is also on sale.
Only the first “phase” of Ciconia When They Cry has been released so far, with four episodes planned. Rather than the 1980s periods favored by Higurashi and Umineko, Ciconia is set after World War III, and follows young “Gauntlet Knights” as they try to prevent World War IV from breaking out.
