Some of the greatest visual novel games on PC are discounted until tomorrow

You can pick up a bunch of great visual novel games like Danganronpa and the Zero Escape trilogy in the Spike Chunsoft sale on Steam (opens in new tab), but only until tomorrow. 

Every entry in each series is discounted. Last year's Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (opens in new tab) is 50% off, at a more reasonable $30/£25, while the first two entries are just $8/£6 each. The entire Zero Escape trilogy (opens in new tab) is also available in a bundle for 51% off, while 2016's Zero Time Dilemma (opens in new tab) is 50% off. On a non-visual novel note, you can also pick up Fire Pro Wrestling World for 20% less, a game which was the subject of this excellent diary feature (opens in new tab) by Matt Elliott.

Both Zero Escape and Danganronpa figure into Hannah Dwan's list of the best visual novel games (opens in new tab) on PC. "Zero Escape is grim, but the story is fascinating and well told. Choices you make result in different endings, and the games play into it in a way no other visual novel really has." Katharine Byrne gave the first two games a 90% (opens in new tab) in her review last year, in case you needed more convincing. 

Danganronpa, meanwhile, got this endorsement in our best-of list. "All of the writing and character designs are funny, a contrast to the grim atmosphere of a game about students murdering each other in fits of desperation, with the mysterious and antagonistic Monobear egging them on in crueler and crueler ways." Andy Kelly also gave the first game a strong 86% in his review (opens in new tab).
