Have a question?
@redrum666: That information has been confirmed on the discord chat.
found a forum on pcenginefx.com about the game it looks like the game will be coming out on April 12th
@Stephen: not yet. Probably in the next few weeks.
Did this ship yet?
When the game is shipped ?
@Redrum666, Ho, and Josh: There is an update posted this morning explaining the delay.
what is going on with this kickstarter we should of had the PCE CD version of game months ago at least that is what the last update video told us
I guess the game will be shipped in 2019 or actually is a scam!
The fact that the site is down and all communication has stopped is definitely worrying.
@Ho and Laurent: An update will be coming explaining the delay. Apparently there is an issue with the trademark.
Any news regarding shipping? It's been a looong time :-)
Is it gonna ready in Dec or 2018?
Glad to see some updates on the game. Looking forward to all the new additions since the last playable demo.
Anyone who wants another Dreamcast project to back. Senile Team has another beautiful Dreamcast (also PC/PS4) game coming out through a Kickstarter that still needs some backers. Please check it out and support it if you are interested.

Ok, found... sorry!
Sorry to bother but I can't recall if I filled the backer's survey. Is there any way to check?
I just posted an update video with what's happening. I thank Daniel for filling everyone in as best he could. After the events that took place, we've been really busy trying to play catch up. I'd like to think we have been regularly updating with the exception of this last update. Ray and Army of Dorkness, hopefully the video will answer your questions. Otherwise, contact us directly via message if you have any other issues.
Is it really that tough to sit down to write a quick update to the people who helped fund your idea? The Tanglewood & Battle Princess teams do it all the time and I'm sure they're just as busy.
I don't mind that it's taking extra time. I do mind lack of communication. At the bare minimum post video of people playing the latest version when you go to conventions.
Answers should be coming from the developer not backers
Probably because he is busy making the game
How come Sarumaru isn't answering the questions?
@Chris: I have not been told an exact date, however I have been told that it will include the physical goods including packaging as well as gameplay.
How soon will the video be up?
@Everybody: I have been told that update video should be coming soon.
@Chris: I was told directly by Sarumaru, however it looks like it is going to be at least October before the game is released. More information will be coming.
Daniel Schibuk who told you that?
@redrum666: I don't know what happened with video, however I find out anything I will post
@Chris: I have been told that the game should be launching mid-september for the PCE/TG-16 and later for other platforms
When will the game be released for PC Engine/TG-16?
what happen to that video update they talked about over a month ago
I'm getting really excited to play the final product for Henshin Engine the Game! I think I'll play it first on my Dreamcast... no wait, on my TG-16... or maybe my Genesis... man, I just don't know. I'm so stressed right now.
No update since April? What is going on?
@Tom Streck Please email Henshinengine@gmail.com We can do it at our end! Thanks! :D
@redrum666 We will have a video update very soon! Sorry for the wait!
Hey guys. I'm having problems with the survey. I went to the backerkit site and all my shipping and payment information was still there but can't get into what version of the game I want and how I wanted to appear in the credits.
hi Sarumaru can we get an update on the game the last update about it was back in February
@Everybody: Please note that if you have not filled out your information on Backer kit you now have until May 30th due to the delay of the PCE and PC-CD versions.
Also note there has been no change to the relesse dates of the DC and Genesis versions which are still planned for Late 2017 and sometime in 2018
@Everybody: Please note the release date for the PC and PCE versions have been delayed to Summer of 2017.
@Everybody: If you pledged $39 or more do not place a pre-order yet as will have to pay additional shipping costs. There will be an add-on option coming. A link will be posted once everything is sorted out. You will also be able to manage your Survey from this link.
@Chris: I have not heard otherwise, so I would have to say yes. However, based on shipping I suspect we might not get the physical copies exactly on March 28th. I would not be surprised that it may take a week or more after March 28th for your copy to arrive. Also note this date only holds for PC and PCE copies with DC copies coming late 2017 and Genesis copies sometime in 2018.
Is the March delivery date still accurate for my physical copy?
@Everyone: FYI: Pre-orders for additional copies will not be available until at the earliest sometime next week. I have been told there will be the option to purchase digital copies and please note that these will be only for the PC. All console versions will be physical media.
@Everybody: If you have any concerns about your survey, please contact Sarumaru using the "Ask a question" button at bottom of the campaign page, by sending a message to Henshinengine@gmail.com, or by sending a message on Facebook.
@Sega Dude: I am still awaiting word on the pre-orders however, they should be coming soon and supposedly will be handled through Backer kit.
I pledge for two copies of the game. What if I would like 3 copies (TG-16, Dreamcast and Genesis/MD). Will we have a chance to pay for more?
Based on the latest poll numbers only 38.5% of backers have voted. If you are in the other 61.5% make sure to vote now as the poll will be closing today. Please see either of the last two updates for the link.
@Everybody: In case you have not seen the comments on the latest update, the cartridge poll will close on Friday 10/14, so get your votes in before then.
Voted Genesis/MD after careful consideration. More people have fully working consoles of that than Sega CD, and hearing chiptune adaptations on the Yamaha FM - if done well - could be excellent. For the lore of the game, having the Genesis represented would be nice, maybe some content can be a bit different to be pro-Geni since you're playing on her turf, now. XD
