22:39:27 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> It's our first moege
22:39:36 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> no, we had dacapo
22:39:42 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> 3.5mb long
22:39:47 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> about the same length as koihime musou

22:42:36 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> (and a bunch of big name va playing the characters)
22:42:59 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> While we like little sisters, let's face it, there are better little sisters in this one
22:43:03 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Moon Stone Cherry
22:43:27 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Imouto Paradise
22:45:15 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> seems like the perfect game to talk about at otakon with oreimo
22:45:20 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> who loves little sisters?
22:45:25 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and i assume the rest of you have little sisters
22:45:52 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> It's a straightforward nukige
22:45:55 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and they are blood related
22:46:11 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> the producers made sure that each line said they are real little sisters and not some copout
22:46:19 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> yes, there is a harem route
22:46:25 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> if little sisters aren't your thing
22:46:36 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> next we have something that a few of you are asking about
22:46:40 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it's been a year since we talked about it
22:46:46 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> so here is Eroge
22:48:10 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Eroge! Sex and Games Make Sexy Games
22:48:13 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it's an eroge about making eroge
22:48:26 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> while it's sorta tongue in cheek and surprisingly accurate
22:48:53 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> you are hired to work at a small tiny name company, and the only thing that's inaccurate about this is he gets to bang the staff
22:49:00 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we have one of the beta testers
22:49:03 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> would you like to comment on it
22:49:18 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> first of all, i hate all of you, second of all, i wrote a report on the staff blog
22:49:42 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and second thing, i learned what faping was because of this game, and that's one of the many things i learned
22:50:12 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we got an email from clockup
22:50:15 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> almost done with final build
22:50:20 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it will probably be our next release
22:50:24 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we don't have a date set in stone yet
22:50:26 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Hentai Industries
22:50:30 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> new publishing partner
22:50:45 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> they are simply using us as a medium to distribute
22:50:53 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> they will be doing low priced games for various feishes
22:51:10 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Ruby and Warrior Princess Asuka, cheap budget nukige (the ones from ax)
22:51:25 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> next to announce our partnership with Lilithsoft
22:51:39 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> they primarily work with dark nukige
22:51:42 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> they of course have story games
22:51:55 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> (running through the games from AX)
22:52:17 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Innocent Grey
22:52:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> going back to this company
22:52:37 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> back from feb, when kara no shoujo 2 was annoucned, people innudated us with questions
22:52:43 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> "When will you get kara no shoujo 2"
22:53:02 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> so yes
22:53:03 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we got Kara no Shoujo 2 for you guys
22:53:34 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> pv
22:54:02 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> (and more people had played the original game here than AX, in at least 1/3rd of the crowd)
22:55:37 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> continuation of kara no shoujo
22:55:43 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> one of the darker titles, in the story sense
22:55:47 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it's my personal favorite of the games
22:55:52 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and personally, buy kara no shoujo
22:56:39 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and like i said, it's a continuation of the story, it incorporates elements from the two previous games, kara no shoujo and cartagra
22:56:43 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> thus before Kara no shoujo 2, we will release cartargra
22:57:30 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it's a prequel to kara no shoujo even though it didn't come first
22:57:49 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> to those who played, the main characters will be familiar, they will be the protagonists
22:57:55 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> you will see their story
22:58:12 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> since there are references in KnS2, cartagra will come first
22:58:26 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it will be the same translators on KnS on both games
22:58:32 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> it should be in beta testing soon
22:58:38 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> next up Neosis

22:59:01 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Free Friends and Free Friends 2
22:59:18 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> the series is about a girl who has lost her home for some reason and then goes on a SNS to sell herself out
22:59:25 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> to make a living and then move on
22:59:35 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and to celebrate that KnS2 is licensed
22:59:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we will be releasing Kara no Shoujo voiced edition and it will be out in hardcopy
22:59:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and there will be a limited edition

23:02:56 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Boob Wars 2
23:03:03 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> because the first one sold amazingly
23:03:15 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> this is actually from softhouse seal grandee
23:03:20 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> so it's more of a full length title

23:17:48 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: In DC3, do they ever make love to that tree?
23:18:07 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: Is that what you are into? Yes? I don't know...
23:18:46 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Brosou, how comfortable are you now wearing that?
23:19:06 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: the answer is not very by the wya
23:20:22 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Obligatory shin koihime musou
23:20:22 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: After the panel
23:20:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Games from Empress?
23:20:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: I don't know...
23:20:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> We haven't spoken to them before
23:20:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Anime or hentai related to the games?
23:20:24 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: We're talking with lilith
23:20:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> that's why we chose those 3 titles
23:20:23 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we don't know how well that's going to go
23:20:24 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Age Games?
23:20:38 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: Talking, don't know if or when
23:20:55 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: (something about an inception joke in eroge)
23:21:20 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: the company consists of 6 people, we have more people up here than at clockwork
23:21:48 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Chance of Koihime Musou fighting game spinoff?
23:21:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A:The thing is spinoffs is other companies are involved
23:22:07 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> so it makes things that much harder
23:23:50 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: When you try to license things, do you know the real reason they don't want their games licensed?
23:23:53 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: Imagine you made a porno, do you want other people to know?
23:23:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> There is a degree of shame in it
23:24:13 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Or the sales are fraction of the japanes eones
23:24:19 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and they don't want to see the sales flop
23:24:45 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> some companies want to do scripting and localization, and they don't have the staff
23:24:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Shuffle has all ages version, any chance of those being all ages?
23:25:21 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: The ps2 ports fall back intot the spinoffs, where you have more companies which makes the negotiation web even more of a mess to sort out
23:25:32 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> With Dacapo III, we're doing both the all ages and the 18+ at the same time
23:25:38 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we're interested in how the sales compare
23:26:22 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: (couldn't hear) A: our scripter has been, no wait, they are in beta testing now, so as soon as the reports are in, we might have it out after eroge
23:26:54 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: more yuri games?
23:26:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: Actually...
23:27:46 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> while we haven't announced it yet, but we've started working with a certain doujin group that just recently published their first title in japan, and we're planning to localize it
23:27:26 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and that is a very yuri title
23:27:52 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: More 7th expansion works?
23:28:13 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: Can't say anything at the moment, we know his works are popular, the problem is a lot of ryukishi works is the way he does the music makes it hard to sort out
23:28:28 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> umineko was already translated, and he gave a nod to that, but some of his other works, may happen
23:29:04 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Do you do programming for the games?
23:29:44 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: We're a localization company but our store is more of a publisher, and if you've been watching, we've been releasing oel and doujin games to try and promote those in the west
23:29:40 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> so we do plan to do those, but our main focus and endevours go into localization
23:29:51 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we do have a programmer who does a lot of work
23:29:57 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> and we've gotten a lot of titles because of him
23:30:19 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Chou Dengeki Styker get delayed?
23:30:44 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: We sent the translation to overdrive and they ran into some troubles, they have to do the script, but as soon as they do the builds on it, we hope to get it out fast
23:30:51 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: What languages do you work with?
23:31:03 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: I wish our programmer was here
23:31:47 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> Q: Otome games?
23:32:03 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> A: The thing about otome and bl games is we are interested and it's an area we're intersted in going into, but we want to do it right
23:32:14 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> There's a much smaller selection
23:32:24 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we need some direction since the guys don't know it
23:32:28 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we need opinions to know where to look
23:32:41 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> that's why the post is on the forums
23:32:48 <bay|Ota|Mangagamer> we do have a resident fujoshi expert
