22:39:15 <bay|AX|JAST> (Still filling the room)
22:39:39 <bay|AX|JAST> JAST USA 2012 Visual Novel Panel
22:46:29 <bay|AX|JAST> Okay
22:46:30 <bay|AX|JAST> So
22:46:36 <bay|AX|JAST> Good evening
22:46:44 <bay|AX|JAST> and welcome to the JAST USA visual novel at AX 2012
22:46:51 <bay|AX|JAST> My name is Phil
22:47:02 <bay|AX|JAST> Some people may know me as Makoto(?)
22:46:59 <bay|AX|JAST> I'll be your host for the evening
22:47:07 <bay|AX|JAST> I want to thank everyone for coming
22:47:14 <bay|AX|JAST> I know it's late
22:47:16 <bay|AX|JAST> so let's get this started
22:47:25 <bay|AX|JAST> we are JAST USA
22:47:40 <bay|AX|JAST> for 15 years, we've been bringing japanese visual novels to the west
22:47:46 <bay|AX|JAST> we have a catalog of over 50 titles
22:48:07 <bay|AX|JAST> people often ask what i like about eroge
22:48:25 <bay|AX|JAST> and I say i like the deep plots (cleavage)
22:48:29 <bay|AX|JAST> and the epic battles (let you figure this out)
22:48:21 <bay|AX|JAST> and the difficult choices
22:48:34 <bay|AX|JAST> and the epic characters
22:48:51 <bay|AX|JAST> in all seriousness, the visual novels have a great deal of story telling potential
22:48:58 <bay|AX|JAST> it's a medium that combines in whatever propritions you desire
22:49:06 <bay|AX|JAST> the best part of novels, anime, games, you can have it all
22:49:18 <bay|AX|JAST> and i think the games we released in the US do a good job of showing a ride range of what we have to offer
22:49:21 <bay|AX|JAST> last time we saw you
22:49:25 <bay|AX|JAST> we had just released demonbane
22:49:43 <bay|AX|JAST> and yukkuri panic
22:49:56 <bay|AX|JAST> the story about girls in a catholic school doing ... well... eachother
22:50:05 <bay|AX|JAST> both of these games are available at the Jlist/jast usa store
22:50:17 <bay|AX|JAST> so this year... we released 3 games
22:50:22 <bay|AX|JAST> the first is Aselia the Eternal
22:50:35 <bay|AX|JAST> this is our first all ages game that we published
22:50:41 <bay|AX|JAST> it is a strategy RPG
22:50:57 <bay|AX|JAST> in which you are summoned to a medievil fantasy world where you must fight beside cute girls, warriors called spirits
22:52:25 <bay|AX|JAST> this game provides a high level of strategy gameplay where you have to assme squad, choose skills and (lost in order to capture territory)...
22:51:22 <bay|AX|JAST> it goes from normal to super hard difficulty
22:51:28 <bay|AX|JAST> and over 100s of skills to choose from
22:51:37 <bay|AX|JAST> anyone looking for challenging hardcore gameplay or a seriously deep story
22:51:57 <bay|AX|JAST> compared to power levels... the trinity sword series. which is this ithe first of has some of the highest
22:52:04 <bay|AX|JAST> the next game we released is...
22:52:09 <bay|AX|JAST> My Girlfriend is the President
22:52:52 <bay|AX|JAST> representative of the fun and lighthearted eroge
22:52:45 <bay|AX|JAST> the two main heroines are president ohama of new japan
22:53:01 <bay|AX|JAST> president putina of russia
22:53:18 <bay|AX|JAST> secretary of staff...and this cute creature who happens to be a spaceship in uniform
22:53:28 <bay|AX|JAST> so if you want a game where russia and japan go to nuclear war over your body, this is the game
22:53:34 <bay|AX|JAST> and it is an election year
22:53:41 <bay|AX|JAST> so remember vote moe in 2012
22:53:58 <bay|AX|JAST> i'd like to thank (missed name) and his tl wiki team for translating the game
22:54:06 <bay|AX|JAST> School Days HQ
22:54:16 <bay|AX|JAST> as you can see, we had some fun with the effects
22:54:19 <bay|AX|JAST> it is shipping as of wednesday
22:54:28 <bay|AX|JAST> we were not able to get it out before the convention
22:54:36 <bay|AX|JAST> but we do have several hundred copies here
22:54:42 <bay|AX|JAST> this is a huge game...
22:54:44 <bay|AX|JAST> 13 gig of video
22:54:51 <bay|AX|JAST> two dual layer DVDs
22:55:00 <bay|AX|JAST> so serious thanks to kanna and the sekai team
22:55:24 <bay|AX|JAST> perhaps needs no introduction
22:55:27 <bay|AX|JAST> but i'm going to do one anyway
22:55:34 <bay|AX|JAST> you play a guy named makoto, no relation
22:55:39 <bay|AX|JAST> he does have many relations though
22:55:43 <bay|AX|JAST> he is caught between these two girls
22:56:00 <bay|AX|JAST> depending on your choices you can reach a happy end with one or both or one of one of three other girls or you get the opposite
22:56:31 <bay|AX|JAST> there are ... for those of you who were depressed or saddened by the ending in the anime, there are 21 endings in the anime.. and the majority have no blood...er... no one dies
22:56:43 <bay|AX|JAST> so if you are looking for a happy ending wher you don't trample on anyones hear, it's possible
22:56:51 <bay|AX|JAST> what we're going to do is show you a bit of how the game works
22:57:33 <bay|AX|JAST> the game is a series of videos...and choices appear..which are timed.. you will get 40-50 choices in a route..and silence is an option, and sometimes the right option
22:57:56 <bay|AX|JAST> (skipping this)
23:03:09 <bay|AX|JAST> (makoto shine)
23:14:16 <bay|AX|JAST> Since this is the highest profile release
23:14:21 <bay|AX|JAST> we put together a collections edition
23:14:35 <bay|AX|JAST> with an oppai mousepad and a keychain
23:14:40 <bay|AX|JAST> that's all for the games we hav ereleased
23:14:44 <bay|AX|JAST> now for games we are still working on
23:14:49 <bay|AX|JAST> first nitro+
23:14:59 <bay|AX|JAST> you may be wondering where these games are
23:15:36 <bay|AX|JAST> saya by urobuchi gen of madoka and fate
23:15:16 <bay|AX|JAST> hanachirasu...
23:15:45 <bay|AX|JAST> we've given the translations of the games to nitro+
23:15:52 <bay|AX|JAST> they are working on optimizing them for english and other problems
23:15:59 <bay|AX|JAST> this needs to be done between their many other projects
23:16:05 <bay|AX|JAST> it might take a little while
23:16:08 <bay|AX|JAST> we will keep you posted
23:16:21 <bay|AX|JAST> in the meanwihle we'll work on our other games like sumaga
23:16:24 <bay|AX|JAST> the translation is continuing
23:16:28 <bay|AX|JAST> we hope to have it done by the end of the year
23:18:07 <bay|AX|JAST> in this game, you play an amnesiac who starts the game by dying, and you wake up in heaven where god in the form of a kindergarten girl gives you the power to restart your life until you get the ending you want
23:18:49 <bay|AX|JAST> (Trailer)
23:20:51 <bay|AX|JAST> thanks to tinfoil(?) for putting that together
23:20:57 <bay|AX|JAST> and then we have our last nitro+ game, django
23:21:01 <bay|AX|JAST> western...
23:21:03 <bay|AX|JAST> set in space
23:21:52 <bay|AX|JAST> takes place on a planet that is for various reasons locked in the wild west... with aliens
23:21:30 <bay|AX|JAST> (paraphrasing in parts randomly)
23:22:53 <bay|AX|JAST> (not copying this, going over the various girls)
23:23:21 <bay|AX|JAST> and that's django in a nutshell which is currently being translated
23:23:24 <bay|AX|JAST> then we have...
23:23:28 <bay|AX|JAST> these 3 games
23:23:30 <bay|AX|JAST> moero 3
23:23:45 <bay|AX|JAST> you may recall this was delayed because the company disbanded after the earthquake
23:23:50 <bay|AX|JAST> we gave it to a programmer who is still working on it
23:24:02 <bay|AX|JAST> starless, the latest game by seishoujo(?), the bibleblack artist
23:24:07 <bay|AX|JAST> the translation for this is ongoing
23:24:13 <bay|AX|JAST> it started fairly recently
23:24:18 <bay|AX|JAST> i'll keep you updated via twitter
23:25:16 <bay|AX|JAST> and then we have sei narukana...the sequel to acelia... it's not all ages
23:24:50 <bay|AX|JAST> we would like to release more all ages games
23:24:55 <bay|AX|JAST> now we have Yumina
23:25:00 <bay|AX|JAST> Yumina the Etheral
23:25:10 <bay|AX|JAST> also made by the acelia the eternal team, so you know it has serious gameplay
23:25:50 <bay|AX|JAST> this girl needs to get elected so she doesn't fail
23:25:57 <bay|AX|JAST> the elections for this school are done as battles
23:28:43 <bay|AX|JAST> (video)
23:28:55 <bay|AX|JAST> that's basically it
23:29:12 <bay|AX|JAST> you might have noticed some discprencies, that's cause i was cheating, it's not that easy
23:29:14 <bay|AX|JAST> it's currently in testing
23:29:22 <bay|AX|JAST> we have to edit some game files to make sure everything works
23:29:24 <bay|AX|JAST> and that's it for updates
23:29:28 <bay|AX|JAST> now we have one new game to announce
23:29:34 <bay|AX|JAST> i'm afraid it's not steins;gate
23:29:42 <bay|AX|JAST> we're going to do this by showing the opening
23:31:10 <bay|AX|JAST> Trample on Schatten ~kagefumi no uta~
23:32:01 <bay|AX|JAST> it is a classic henshin hero adventure in the kamen rider/super sentai series style
23:32:56 <bay|AX|JAST> (going over charcters)
23:33:46 <bay|AX|JAST> one of the points of this game, that this company does for all their scenes, is you can pick if you want the heroines partinally clothed or naked
23:34:07 <bay|AX|JAST> this is a game first and foremost about battles and hotblood and epic transformation sequence
23:34:30 <bay|AX|JAST> translation on it began earlier this month
23:34:32 <bay|AX|JAST> will keep it updated
23:34:34 <bay|AX|JAST> that's our new game
