So began ''When They Cry''. This is a SeriesFranchise of linear [[VisualNovel sound novels]], anime, console games, and manga by 07th Expansion, a doujin group that became famous with the series' first installment, ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry''. ''When They Cry'' is broken up into a series of supernatural murder mysteries, which are further broken up into individual games, each covering one story arc. These arcs are marked by [[GroundhogDayLoop time starting over from a certain point]] with the dead members of the cast brought back to life for mysterious reasons. The series itself is probably most well known for the sheer amount of CuteAndPsycho characters in itís cast (the trope page image shows Rena Ryuguu).

Independent game developer [=Ryukishi07=] of 07th Expansion wanted to make a visual novel that stuck with people after they played it. For inspiration, he looked to one of the industry's pioneers, Creator/KeyVisualArts. Studying their games, he noticed that they all followed a basic structure. The games began with comedy and introduction of the characters and the basic concepts of the world; then the player got to know the characters; then something tragic happened to [[PlayerPunch make the player cry]] just as they'd gotten to care about the cast, accompanied by revelations of the true nature of the world and what had really been going on the whole time; then the story culminated with a miracle to EarnYourHappyEnding. Ryukishi decided that he wanted to make a game like that, too... but he didn't want to [[{{Utsuge}} make his audience cry]] like Key did.
