Steam’s Daily Deal: STEINS;GATE at 50% Off!

Steam’s Daily Deal is the visual novel Steins;Gate at $17.49, 50% off!

The Steam release for the visual novel by 5pb. and Nitroplus is on sale for today. For those unfamiliar, the synopsis for the story of Steins;Gate is below:

STEINS;GATE follows a rag-tag band of tech-savvy young students who discover the means of changing the past via mail, using a modified microwave. Their experiments into how far they can go with their discovery begin to spiral out of control as they become entangled in a conspiracy surrounding SERN, the organisation behind the Large Hadron Collider, and John Titor who claims to be from a dystopian future.

Interaction with the game takes place through the “phone trigger” system, where the player can receive calls and text messages and decide whether to reply to them or not, changing the outcome of the game’s plot.
