This week marks the Japanese lunar festival known as Tsukimi. Japanese people traditionally display decorations and eat rice dumplings to celebrate the beauty of the moon during this time. GOG is getting in on the festivities too; the GOG Moon Festival sale is cutting up to 85% off all kinds of Japanese games. Let's have a look!
GOG Moon Festival Sale - JRPGsIt wouldn't be a celebration of Japanese video games without a nod to JRPGs. If you're a fan of the genre, you're in for an embarrassment of riches. Tokyo Xanadu eX+ (80% off) tells the story of high school student Kou Tokisaka as he's sucked into a nightmarish world known as the Eclipse. If you're in more of a Black Mirror mood, check out The Caligula Effect: Overdose (20% off). Everyone's favorite hero Adol returns in Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of DANA (35% off - check out our review right here), and a new hero is born in Nihon Falcom's Trails of Cold Steel (40% off). There are plenty more JRPGs on sale if these haven't tickled your fancy.
GOG Moon Festival Sale - Visual NovelsVisual novels are well-represented in the GOG Moon Festival Sale. There are plenty of offerings from esteemed publishers like Sekai and Mangagamer, so if you're looking for a visual novel fix, you'll find it here. Both halves of the excellent Umineko When They Cry - Question Arcs and Answer Arcs - are going for a song (up to 50% off). For a non-traditional love story, check out The Expression Amrilato (20% off). If you prefer to be a bit more hands-on in your visual novels, then dungeon crawler hybrid Serment - Contract with a Devil (35% off) should do nicely.
There's plenty here we haven't even touched on, so go check out the GOG Moon Festival Sale for even more amazing deals on Japanese gaming. The sale runs until September 16th at 1 pm UTC (6 am PT and 9 am ET).
