The next Visual Novel book club thread is up, this time for Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate: Plus by Christine Love:

I've also created a meta thread for the book club, so please share any ideas you have for future book club VNs in that thread:

The demo for Ciconia no Naku koro ni was released earlier today and I just finished reading it:

It's pretty short, just under half an hour, and seems a lot more action-heavy than the Umineko (I haven't read Higurashi yet):
A long action scene that takes up most of the demo did remind me of the first Witch duel in Umineko
Perhaps it will be more along the lines of Rose Guns Days in that regard, namely more about political machinations and gun-fights than mysteries.

But regardless, it served its purpose and made me even more excited to read the full story next month,

The price of the Steam version is going to be $40 and will feature both English and Japanese language support.

I think it's for the whole package, with further episodes added whenever Ryuukishi07 is done with them (just like with Higu and Umi)
Somebody asked WH about that on Twitter and they could neither confirm nor deny. But you might be right.

We already knew that it was going to be more expensive, but $40 is more than I expected.

Wait, no Taimanin on Steam? LAME!

Was it too excessive? Steam is still hosting the Butler torture porn game so as usual this kinda decision baffles me.

I don't remember school stuff in Taimanin tbh. It was a really long time ago but I thought Asagi was like 21 and out of school?

Well either way, I suppose it was a bit too hopeful to think Steam would carry it after all...

Hey everyone, happy Friday, it’s almost the weekend!
It’s been a while since we last updated you guys about what’s going on with Aokana.
We are happy to announce that Aokana was approved by Valve and will be released at the end of this month, on the 27th of September!

The game will be, like our other games, released simultaneously on the NekoNyan store, Denpasoft, Fakku, JAST, Mangagamer, Nutaku as well as Steam (with a free patch available). The launch price will be $34.99 with a 10% launch discount.

Next, Backerkit will close on September 25th. Please make sure your order is locked in ASAP, so that you can get your digital keys. As of right now, there are still 175 people who need to lock their surveys in, so please take a few minutes and complete it. If you have issues completing it, please send us an email at help@nekonyansoft.on.spiceworks.com.

We are also really excited to announce that we secured the rights for the additional scenes from the Perfect Edition of Aokana. Those will be added a few weeks after the release of Aokana and will be available as paid DLC for $4.99. People who backed us on Kickstarter or pre-ordered the game on Backerkit will get those for free.
Most of you know that we hadn’t been originally planning on licensing the Perfect Edition, which in our cases adds a couple of extra scenes (and H-scenes) with Misaki. Some of you may also know the reason for that was due to the very high additional costs of that version over the base version. As time went on, more and more people asked about us getting the PE, and expressed interest in it. Ultimately, after thinking long and hard about it, we wanted to give you guys, the fans, what you wanted as best we can. We decided to go ahead and license the Perfect Edition scenes, but to help offset the extra costs, have them as an add-on DLC for those that want them.

Finally, in general NekoNyan news, we are looking for an additional Unity programmer to assist us with porting games from KiriKiri, BGI, and others, to our in-house Unity engine. If you, or someone you know has Unity experience, and is interested in helping to bring VNs to the west, please email a full resume to apply@nekonyansoft.com, along with any examples of previous work, if possible.

Thanks everyone! We hope you are looking forward to the game releasing in just 2 weeks time!

-NekoNyan Staff

NekoNyan continues to impress.
Of course, there is still plenty of time for delays and complications when they get to the physical goods, but so far their campaign has been exemplary.
