  1. Hippoboar Rancher, anyone?

    I... don't know if he would want me to share that. He used to post here quite a lot, but I don't know if I should say more than that. I'll just say, there were only ever two company reps who did that who were well thought-of, and he's one of those two.
  2. Hippoboar Rancher, anyone?

    I imagine this mostly flew under the radar, but a certain former PR rep, once known as the nicest guy in the VN industry, is translating this charming-looking indie game which is getting a Kickstarter to fund the translation: They already hit their funding goal, but consider showing them some love anyway; the game does look fun and goofy, and knowing Ian, the localization should be a riot.
  3. Funniest VN

    I am somewhat biased, but 9-nine-: Episode 2 has the only truly hilarious H-scene I have ever seen.
  4. First VN you ever played and what did you think?

    Edit: I somehow completely misread the OP o_O, so I'm basically rewriting this post, lol Clannad, because I loved the anime. Which soon led to Little Busters, and then down a very deep rabbit hole...
  5. Yeah... The structure of the game is definitely not friendly in that regard. The prologue is a slog.
  6. Summer Pockets English Translation

    On the one hand, I understand not wanting to abandon your own hard work. On the other hand, once a company has announced an official localization, the civil thing to do if you're a fan translation outfit is to talk to the developer and understand what they want you to do, not to say "fuck you, Key, we're going to keep releasing our fan TL patches". I hope these guys cool off a bit and have a conversation with the developer's English representatives to understand what their wishes are. Who knows? Maybe there's room for collaboration.
  7. I Walk Among Zombies vol. 2 released

    Volume 3 completes the story. The writer indicated a long time back that they planned to write a volume 4 for the webnovel, as an epilogue story, which has never materialized. However, there's more content at the end of volume 3 of the game than there is in volume 3 of the webnovel, so I saw one person hypothesizing that they got out what they wanted to in the game, so we'd probably never see a volume 4 of the webnovel since the content they wanted to do was in the game instead. Who can say.
  8. VN with both english and japanese text

    the Nine games: volume 1: https://store.steampowered.com/app/976390/9nineEpisode_1/ volume 2: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1033420/9nineEpisode_2/
  9. Sorairo is a lot better than Kokoiro, imo. More plot, more action, a bad end that destroys you, and absolutely hilarious porn in the good end. I'm looking forward to Haruiro as well. Half a year... would be nice, but maybe!
  10. 9-nine-: Episode 2 released

    Broski's back, y'all. Denpasoft (full 18+ release): https://denpasoft.com/collections/newest-releases/products/9-nine-episode-2 Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1033420/9nineEpisode_2/ Denpasoft (free patch for the Steam release): https://denpasoft.com/collections/dlc/products/9-nine-episode-2-18-dlc
  11. It's certainly a divisive game, but mostly WRT the secret ending (a lot of people don't like it, which is understandable). That said, I don't agree that the protagonist is a scumbag, and I think if you play through the entirety of the first twins' route, that becomes very apparent.
  12. Uhh, so, to get the first post-ending scene, you just wait at the title screen for a while, and then it'll take you straight to a short post-ending scene. After you've seen that, you just start a new game (either from prologue or the other option, I don't have it handy), and the new options are available.
  13. And since it's on the same topic, I'll take this opportunity to add some more thoughts on the themes that I wrote up a while ago. Would not recommend reading until you've finished Alice's ending.
  14. The game starts after the prologue. Trust me, it changes character fast. I'm not a fan of the prologue either.
  15. I Walk Among Zombies vol. 2 released

    Note that there is no all ages version and Steam and Denpasoft both have identical uncut, demosaiced releases. That means you'll need the right config toggles in Steam before they'll let you see it exists. Pick it up with a 10% launch discount on either store: Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1100800/I_Walk_Among_Zombies_Vol_2/ Denpasoft: https://denpasoft.com/collections/newest-releases/products/i-walk-among-zombies-vol-2 The new heroine in this one is really cool, and as with volume 1, the volume 2 is one part post-apocalyptic survival horror one part human drama. This time, I'd say, with a little more emphasis on the "human" angle, as Yuusuke slowly starts to become a little less of a clod.
