Over a year later, and it's on steam. Enjoy the feels all.

yeah, the price is outrageous atm and I would really only get it on humble or like, super steam sale where it's like, 60% or more off, but that's ONLY if I'm not in college.

The Dangopedia is a frakking awesome idea, that should be implemented into more localised Japanese visual novels.

Already have it since a few years ago. :v

But damn, the price is outrageous, plus I don't use steam anyways. :/
The only way to truly hurt a man, is to take everything that he valued and degrade it and remind him of it everyday of his life. But by doing this, you also create a monster, and you will regret ever harming that man, because he will be your greatest horror.

Hang on, "outrageous" based on... What are we comparing it to? (Sticking to US prices, BTW)

By word count, CLANNAD is pegged at around 1.3 million words. That's more than the entire Harry Potter series (~1 million words, over 7 books), more than double that of the entire Lord of the Rings series (~0.55 million words, over 4 books), and still more than double that of Steins;Gate (~0.62 million words). Keeping it to an Apples to Apples comparison, the standard PC download version of Steins;Gate was originally released as $40, before a price drop down to $30 several months after release.

Or to compare a few more commercially released, fully voiced, English translated visual novels?
Hakuoki: Stories of the Shinsengumi (PS3)? Or Xblaze Code:Embryo (PS3/PSV)? Or its sequel Xblaze Lost: Memories (PS3/PSV)? Each had MSRP of $40, and none of these even comes close to CLANNAD's word count.
Eden*, which is estimated at around 20%-or-less the length of CLANNAD? $20

Sure, one could argue that they'd get more out of $50 (or $42.49) with other types of games, "Your Mileage May Vary" depending on what type of games they prefer. But for visual novels, it's well within reasonable price range, especially when it has an updated translation and even an all new built-in glossary feature.

Yeah, I figured this explanation was coming. XD

Remember, anime's cut a LOT of content for the sake of motion and dramatic effect, that's how it works. They aren't going to make it any less than it's actual price since it contains everything in the anime PLUS MORE, MUCH MORE! There is a really good reason this was made from VN to Anime and that word count is a HUGE factor.

I was going to complain about how it was too expensive at the moment but damn, Mike makes a good point.

I think it's more that the 50$ just sumps at your face. I saw similar complaints to Trails in the Sky SC for the 30$, and when you think about it they were quite silly. There's just a sensation when seeing "50" that makes you see 50 fu*cking dollars.

See how quickly Sekai has caught on an added the sale. If they're smart they'll permanently change the price to 49,95$ or something like that.

The non-sale price is $49.99 so they already have that covered.

HOLY FUCK! THAT'S A LOT OF VN'S!

And yeah, I get it. If it's much older and you've already played it, makes sense. Visual Novels have been evolving over the years just like everything else so it makes sense.

I actually never tried Clannad. It looked ugly in past and it looks the same even now
