Human struggles, sexy times, and literally all of the feels come to GOG.COM with the debut of Visual Novels, DRM-free of course.

Time to turn over a new page on everyday struggle and enormous plots where emotions run high with nothing off-limits. Revered for intricate artwork and stimulating stories, today we introduce the first of our favorite and acclaimed Visual Novels:

  • Fault (50% off) – written by indie studio ALICE IN DISSONANCE (wow that's a cool name), the fault series is a bit of pulp sci-fi, some fantasy, but mostly it's about the human. Milestones – or episodes – one and two of the ongoing series are available today.
  • Sunrider series (66% off) – an alternate universe, intergalactic strife, mech combat, high school, and love all around. Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius (free!), Liberation Day, and Sunrider Academy are a beloved and unique mix of strategy, romance, and visual novel. De-censor patch optional, but come on.
  • eden* (66% off) – stock up on tissues. It's for all the tears you'll shed throughout this critically-acclaimed last love story on a dying planet.
  • Higurashi When They Cry series (25% off) – spawning a popular anime and manga series, Higurashi is a "sound novel", where meticulously designed audio plays a crucial part in these unique stories. Chapters 1-5 are available today, with Chapter 6 slated for release in the near future.

This is just the start for GOG.COM – we're excited to explore the full extent of the greatest Visual Novels in the near future! The launch discounts will be around for one week, until May 29, 1 PM UTC.
