Yes! By pledging for a physical copy, you will get two codes all in all.
・Two digital codes will be emailed to you as soon as the games are released in Steam: You will get one for Muv-Luv (Extra+Unlimited) when it is completed around March, and another for Muv-Luv Alternative around Summer so you could play the game right away.
・The physical copies will be DRM free. :)Last updated:
What are "Muv-Luv Alternative Integral Works" and "Lunatic Dawn"? What is the difference between them and Muv-Luv Alternative CODEX?
・「Integral Works」 is a 300+ page book containing detailed information about the world of Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative. It is a complete package of its own—Integral Works includes various short stories, illustrations and information regarding the creation of Mechas/Tactical Surface Fighters (TSFs), presentation of Anti-BETA tactical formations and military lore, and history of most of the nations involved in the series.
・「Lunatic Dawn」 is a series of fanbooks by âge-soft released exclusively in various events. They supplement the lore with data on TSFs, design sketches, illustrations, and comments, and include Muv-Luv related updates.
・The Muv-Luv Alternative CODEX is a 400-500 pages interactive digital book with contents from Integral Works and Lunatic Dawn, and is in a cross-platform application format with easy navigation tools, parallax/layered object effects, music and extra sprites to make it much more entertaining to read.

Want to pledge for an item but don't have money right now? We've got great news for you - we're using BackerKit (http://backerkit.com) to help with the rewards fulfillment and make sure everyone gets the correct reward items and specifications.
・To use BackerKit, just pledge any amount for now to be a Backer. After the Kickstarter ends, you will be given a chance to upgrade your reward tier (not downgrade nor lower pledge made in KS), and/or add add-ons.
・Add-Ons can be selected in BackerKit, you can choose to pad the Add-On price to your main KS pledge to help reach the goal, or add the value instead in BackerKit phase- either way is fine.
・You will also be given survey(s) about reward specifics - Sizes, Designs, and any info the selected reward items may need.
・We will start adding everyone to BackerKit 2 weeks after the Kickstarter campaign has ended, as we need to finalize all KS refunds and payments before we start collecting data.
・You can change your upgrade/add-on selections via BackerKit until we lock things down and start sending out rewards.
・The rewards in BackerKit will not be as exclusive (boxes are not signed etc), some may cost slightly higher, so it's really advisable to pledge for the tier you want while the campaign is on-going! :)Last updated:
How can I include digital stretch goal items in my pledge if I backed at a tier below the Muv-Luv Trilogy Collector’s Box ($150)?
You will be able to add these items to your pledge via BackerKit when the Kickstarter has ended. Depending on how many stretch goals are reached, available add-ons will include the Android and PS Vita ports, the Muv-Luv Official CODEX, Photon Flowers and Photon Melodies.Last updated:
・We will provide you a choice between digital PC or Vita at the BackerKit survey after Kickstarter.
・When choosing Digital Vita, you have to keep two things in mind:
1. They may release a little late and around a month after Alternative(2nd game) PC's release date.
2. We can only provide the trilogy's code once to a region, so moving to another will prevent you from (re)downloading the game.Last updated:
・After the KS ends we'll send out a survey and you can choose which region you want the PS Vita code to be for. :)
・We've already confirmed that we'll be able to generate them for the other regions ( not just U.S. )Last updated:
・Just add $80 to your pledge if your tier is $150 Collector's Box or higher to avail both physical Vita and PC. :)Last updated:
・Yes, there are two PS Vita boxes with Cartridges for both games. :)Last updated:
・Photon Flowers and Photon Melodies will be completed after the main trilogy. We will distribute digital copies of both games to backers who pledged at the $150 tier or higher or who added them to their pledge via BackerKit.
・There are no plans for a physical release at the moment. We'll be sure to keep you updated with the latest news if anything changes. :)Last updated:
・The original openings will be used, as they're highly recognized by the fanbase as instrumental/crucial to the series' success.
・Other openings may be included in the gallery if there are no issues with the 3rd party companies which made the variants.Last updated:
All TSF boxes will be signed by the creators, while collector's box will be signed by the Muv-Luv team. :)Last updated:
・Before anything else, everyone needs to know there's an exclusivity license for the trilogy's Japanese scripts. ixtl is doing their best to hasten the proceedings with the 3rd party company holding the exclusivity, but we can't promise the multi-language feature yet. Current status is unknown.
・There is a separate release for PS VITA confirmed by the creators last October 2 live stream but only for Japan, and may possibly release sooner than the PC version. This also means the English release for VITA may be done in only a few months after we've finished the trilogy's PC version since the VITA engine is ready. We'll only have to do Debugging and QA for the most parts when the time comes. :)Last updated:

How will you handle distribution platform restrictions without compromising important story elements? (Note: this section contains subtle spoilers.)
・We will push for a release that is as faithful as possible to the original. Our goal is to allow newcomers to experience exactly why the fanbase votes Muv-Luv as one of the best—if not THE best—Visual Novel they have ever played.
・With regard to violent content, Muv-Luv is relatively tame compared to several games available on Steam, so we will likely get the crucial story elements across.
・We will also release an official patch for the remaining important elements from Muv-Luv. More details will be provided at a later date.Last updated:
