They can't afford to do Shin Koihime Musou, since last I heard they needed to sell 6,000 full price copies on their website just to break even. Most of Baseson's games are equally as expensive.

First world and its first world problems.

Anyway, looking forward to Sukisuki. While I'm not a big fan of the girls' faces (scaling 16:9 pics to my 16:10 monitor aspect ratio might help a bit with that), their bodies and the rest of the art does look great. Gotta torrent the whole thing since the official JP demo will take eternity to download.
I also have a problem with girls I like not being the main ones, and this is the case for both with Sukisuki and Supipara #1 here. Oh well.
That otome title's art doesn't look that noteworthy to me, but if the heroine is not supposed to be a self-insert one (yeah, sure), I might help her catch the better guy of the two.
I see no role for myself in any gay shit, but if MG manages to sell that butlers VN, good for them.
Maggot Baits story should better be a damn good one with a rewarding good end, since I'm not going to play a game where the hero(ine) I'm responsible for gets a bad end regardless of my actions.
All in all, not too much to be hyped for, but it definitely could've been worse.

The practice of releasing restoration/adult/whatever patches on Steam and calling them 'uncensor' does however, and I can't be the only one concerned about the misuse of the term recently.

Shiny Days was JAST and it has an "unofficial" restoration patch. Maitetsu isn't confirmed to be all ages-only yet but there's basically a 0% chance that it'll have an ero release. SP's censorship is probably referring to G-Senjou, slow releases of 18+ Grisaia patches, and whatever other stuff they choose to release as all-ages only instead of patching.

Shiny Days is JAST. And as real life has shown it was meaningless to censor because nobody has gotten in jail over their patched games yet.

I still haven't gotten a counter argument to how people would even find the scenes in a raid/customs. But apparently the police/clerks would play through the game and pick the right options to get to the loli scene and then jail you. Very dedicated police in Canada.

The latest Grisaia was censored on release. Not only the H scenes, but a fair amount of other scenes that included lewd jokes as well.

People get on SP's case because of shit like pic related and because they often don't prioritize 18+ patches unless they have someone like Nekoworks on their ass to make them do it. And even then they often charge way too much for the 18+ patches.

Maitetsu will be butchered as well. Not only the H scenes, but a fair amount of other CG and scenes as well. It's a lolige and I honestly can't see it getting on steam unless a fair amount is taken out. Which begs the question as to why Lose is working with Sekai in the first place. Unless they think English speakers want a bleeding chunks version of Maitetsu.

It's worth noting that sekai 'censoring' things generally means just localizing the all ages version of the game. They haven't directly made cuts themselves, they've simply chosen not to localize or delay adult versions.

Actually all those retard laws tend to say "If it looks like". Which conveniently makes all the moege illegal in a legal sense. Which is why I always find it ironic when companies say "We are a bit afraid to add this slightly younger character".

Not as ironic as it being legal to draw torture and death of children though. But I understand normal people. You rather want your child killed than naked.

The problem is that tat for tattoo is much more common so it shouldn't be a surprise if it confuses some people. Like I said, it's also valid for breasts and I wasn't terribly confused by your post but that doesn't mean others wouldn't be. I'm not sure why you are so baffled that people associate it with the more common meaning.

The programming and asset work on G-Senjou was done in Japan by Akabei Soft and SP has outright stated that the reason there is no 18+ version of the game is because of them.

>> No.15482417

>>15482381
Regardless of who did the censoring for the release, it seems that Akabei Soft was responsible for the all ages decision of G-Senjou. Frontwing has no problems with 18+ content, or 18+ patches, yet of their projects only Sharin no Kuni was all ages only initially only to be changed with later demand on Kickstarter. Both G-Senjou and initially Sharin no Kuni also had "creative" ways to break of the game to try to get some extra money, which seems likely from Akabei Soft. Additionally, of titles released thus far by Sekai Project, only G-Senjou is a censored only releas, despite there being no content in G-Senjou that would merit it getting censored over other titles.

I doubt there will be an uncut release Maitetsu release, and that would likely be all on Sekai Project. But as to G-Senjou, there is little reason to believe they were the ones who made that decision to release it cut.

To be fair if it isn't a viable choice they need to think of themselves first. There's a reason SP has yet to have a profitable year thus far--despite their mass sales in comparison (and their constant kickstarter whoring). Meanwhile MG is doing fine because they make far less retarded business decisions. If a license isn't feasible to acquire (meaning they aren't willing to pay an arm and a leg) I don't see the reason why they should absolutely have to listen to fan requests. The latter should be something to bear in mind for the future but not something you absolutely need to jump on immediately. Plus it leads to nice little things like Fata getting localized, which I very much doubt the english community even heard of before MG announced that it was working on it (it didn't sell amazingly but it sold more than I expected it to).

He hasn't been particularly succesful with Sekai though.

How much do you think Sekai is left with once you factor in the cuts that Steam takes (around 30%) and then the cuts that Nekoworks take? (usual publisher cuts are ranged at around 30-40%, but it could be more given Sekai's tendency to make absolutely stupid business decisions so as to aggressively acquire licenses)

Not to mention that a large amount of the Nekopara sales come strictly from Steam Sales, when the already cheap game goes for just a few bucks. I think you're over estimating how much Sekai takes away from their deals.

MangaGamer was also in the red for years. Amazon didn't ever turn a profit in its first six years, and to this day it's barely making a profit (relative to company size). Being in the red does not mean you're going bankrupt; it just means that your expenses are higher than your revenue (a very common situation for new companies), and thus you need other sources of income than your revenue (such as investors) to keep going. The only real risk of this is that you're fucked if you lose your external source of income (for example, your investors figure your company isn't going anywhere and pull out), but in Sekai's current situation they can just stop growing for a while to recover (assuming they're not too deep into the red).

Meanwhile Front Wing have been in the eroge market for ages and while they're new in venturing into the western markets, they were the ones to supply the 18+ versions and they have also published 18+ works themselves since breaking off from Sekai Project.

- Pricing. Dovac runs on 5-20 dollar VN sales to be able to say he sold a lot. MangaGamer howevers at 30-40 dollars and sell less.
- Hard copy system. Fans of a game will wait 1-2 years to see if a hard copy appears. This directly lowers digital sales of even popular games. And if they buy digital and then hard copy comes, they grow irritated with MG.
- Store not accepting paypal.
- Store download system is pretty horrid. Your library of owned titles are in sale order so you better remember when you bought it. (Jast suffers from this too)

You have their marketing to blame too. Saying things like "Hurray we got this game onto steam uncensored thanks to it having almost no ero" is not really going to push the title. If it had been "even though it has 200 H-scenes" you'd probably see sales in the 25k.

Considering MG was already on Steam and was working on more Steam stuff, and the Sakura series already existed at that point, probably for the better?

MG might have made contact with NekoPara and gotten that catgirl meme money but VA and Frontwing might still not join in.

The amount of releases might be less with MG not having enough translators to work on everything if they hypothetically acquired all of SP's licences but it seems like a moot point when everything SP self-translate takes forever to come out anyway so there's no difference there.

Tokyo Babel, Fata Morgana and Gahkthun failed because they were niche titles (ironically, mostly desired by the same pirate audience that wants 18+ versions).

The difference is Tokyo Babel is an unremarkable chuunige that no one really likes whereas Fata Morgana is widely regarded by the Japanese audience as the best doujin game and one of the best visual novels ever released because it has a strong narrative, brilliant characterisation and strong themes reinforced with wonderful use of motif, that makes it nothing short of a masterpiece.

You do realise Frontwing is in many ways WORSE than Sekai Project when it comes to publishing, right? They do all the same bullshit but turned up even worse; steam whoring, censorship, shitty translations, etc. They force Sekai to delay the 18+ version, they've been sitting on Himawari for months preventing Mangagamer from releasing it and they've announced they're bringing an all ages version of Island and providing now 18+ release.

Also. Front Wing aren't grabbing licenses left and right while ruining the entire western VN market like Sekai Project. At the very least unless they were to surprise us and start to publish the works of others. But until then, supporting Front Wing would just be that, supporting Front Wing.

Frontwing doesn't even work with Sekai anymore. They broke off relations. Frontwing is self publishing now so just purchase future titles from them (not the Grisaia ones, as they are under contract with Sekai). They released some Huniepop clone on steam not too long ago. And it even got a 18+ patch day one.

Meanwhile the recent Grisaia release from Sekai was delayed to shit, doesn't have a 18+ patch in sight, and it actually censors content other than H. And it's over priced as hell for the length.

Sadly Frontwing is no different from Sekai.

Corona Blossom is their Nekopara attempt. Same price, same patch cost, same catgirls.

Purino is their Huniepop attempt. Adult patch is just because else it would be a puzzle game and not sell at all.

G-Senjou, Grisaia and Sharin no Kuni are games they want to sell all-ages of. Grisaia and Sharin apparently got so much kickstarter/prefundia pressure on adult content that Frontwing reluctantly agreed with it. (But claiming they will always have to be delayed because all-ages have priority).

They also have Island coming, that is their "At least nobody can complain about adult content, LOL!" title.

I was about to say nobody would want that, then I remembered Steam kids would want that.

I mean there's nothing wrong with Sayori Kiminozo art, but it's not better than Latest Edition in any way.

Sayori doesn't change hair.

Latest Edition is actually probably the best art of any age game that exists for that matter, -maybe- besides TDA or Schwarzesmarken if you like bootleg imitation Carnelian. The time is better spent replacing everything Sou Miyata ever traced.

Great, more visual novels for Sekai Project to "pick up" and leave sitting around with zero actual progress until years after the proposed release date.
I can't think of one legitimate VN that they actually managed to release without completely fucking up the timing or quality of release, if releasing anything at all.
Why keep on picking up new visual novels if you can't release anything that you already have on your to-do list?
Expanding your backlog at a faster rate than you can finish your projects is a fucking horrible business model.
Can't wait until they go completely tits up and piss off every major JP company they've worked with.
If they keep this shit up, I'm seriously afraid that Japan will just stop giving a fuck about the west thanks to SP's incompetence.
