< report >That is not a shitpost, it's an honest question i feel like the game telling me i solved the case and not even bothering with a single line of epilogue as to how they came out let alone what happened to them tells me all i need to know. Needless to say, i'm not thrilled to play more after this.

I did get a bunch of other endings before that, naturally. I also didn't look up anything about the game, which makes being just thrown out to the title screen after nearly 11 hours even more disappointing.
The endings i got according to the list are: 11, 10, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05 and 01.

< report >I forgot to tell about the version i played. It was the Remake beta test, so i do know about extra content and more choices, but if there isn't more content after the ending in these and only a side story content, i do not really see the point.

Edit: I read the "A Novel" side story now as well, that was pretty damn good! A shame that it was all kinetic, however. I also read the "Snow Maze" stuff and that was a pain in the ass to get through, so i rather skip other content like that.
Is there something choice driven still in this game, and if there is, how do i get to it?

Looking at the japanese guide via google translate makes it seem like this game is a nightmare with unlocking stuff. So honestly, if someone has a complete save so i can skip running twice over through the mystery route band ends, that would be not the worst thing to share. I wonder why they didn't just put these content unlocks into the menu,the same way "a novel" was added after completing the first ending? Might've made it less of a hassle to get to some other new content.Last modified on 2021-11-14 at 10:21

< report >I tried to dig through the game, raked up nearly 30 hours by the end, even got surprised by the story the higurashi writer wrote - because of the character writing, though not the story writing.

But no, i would not recommend wasting time the way i did, even with the jap walkthrough because this game has a hell of a lot of sup-par filler in it and the unlock system is a massive problem even with that walkthrough link.
Personally, i also never found something with the same quality as the main mystery story and the kinetic side story the og writer did and the one the higurashi guy did, everything else got worse and worse.

Edit: I went back and looked into the names of those kinetic side stories. "A Novel" is the one by the og writer and "Limbo" is the name of the other one by the higurashi writer. I would recommend stopping the game after those, tbh.Last modified on 2021-12-02 at 20:13

< report >Agree, main route with the killer is amazing. Others are pretty average. And another route I should mention is where Tooru survives and Mari died in the ski accident. After death lives of her and inn inhabitants (who are also died in tragic accident in the inn) are pretty horrible and interesting at the same time.Last modified on 2021-12-02 at 17:16
