Visual novel publisher MangaGamer released the second chapter of 07th Expansion's Higurashi When They Cry Hou (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hō) dōjin visual novel game on Steam on Friday.
MangaGamer describes the chapter:
In this chapter, Watanagashi ("Cotton Drift"), Keiichi encounters a brand new mystery in Hinamizawa - Shion Sonozaki. Who exactly is Shion? Is she really Mion's twin sister? Is she just an alter ego that Mion adopts to let off steam, or is she a split personality? Maybe she's being manipulated into carrying out Oyashiro-sama's curse?! Either way, you'll have to find out the answers or die trying... when the higurashi cry.
MangaGamer released the first chapter "Onikakushi" on May 15 for US$5.99. The company plans to release the game as 14 individual chapters.
