STEINS;GATE, a highly acclaimed Visual Novel that so far had eluded the Steam Store, will finally get a release in September 8.
No official announcements have been made, but the game already has a store page, and the developer has a specific webpage dedicated to the Steam version as well.
STEINS;GATE is the award-winning time travel science-fiction interactive visual novel developed by 5pb. and Nitroplus.
It is widely considered to be one of the finest Visual Novels ever made.
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.
