Thank you, OP. I thought to myself maybe I'll make a thread about this, but I didn't. I was feeling shy and afraid of negative reactions because this visual novel can only be described as overrated garbage.
It owes its popularity to four factors.
1- It's free.
2- It's on Steam.
3- English translation available from day 1.
4- Nothing controversial about it, just cheap jump scare.
That's the perfect recipe to get the most out of casuals and ``ironic weebs'' as some call them.
On a side note, I personally wish this demographic was called ``Discord teens with ahegao avatars''. It's a longer name but does a much better job of describing it.
Expect more visual novels to be released in a similar format in the coming years.

Haven't read it and I'm not really interested in it but I heard that it's a bad Higurashi.
Are the similarities really big or is it just another one of those comparisons that stupid idiots make because they found one aspect similar?

>English translation
Wasn't it written in English?

Man, I really hate the trend of super glossy art that seems to be so popular now.

I'm not that fond of the contemporary art style in general. Despite the focus on cuteness in most newer art styles, there's a charm to older art that the newer lacks.

This picture is hilarious. I agree to some degree as well. I have seen several anime that look gorgeous that use the current style.

>>2131 Let's try to make "niwaka" a thing, again. As I side note, I felt a similar way toward the "Analogue" franchise, which I played hoping it'd please my love for the "2D text on a 3D plane" computer-y aesthetic (it seriously didn't, and the engine's complete ren'py dogshit to boot)
>>2137 Game's Never7, you should check it out.

Yeah, but don't let its fame turn you against it: It's pretty damned good. Monika best girl.

It's kind of amazing how it was coded. It really shows the extent to which one can use Renpy.
