Narcissu Goods Status Update
Randy here, and I'm apologizing for how long everything is taking and an update on the status of all the things.
tl;dr: Most physical items have been sent to production, except all components of the collector's box because of engine port delays and bugs.
Most of the physical items (tapestries, printed shikishi, etc) have been sent to our Japan office to get production as of a few months ago. we haven't received the physical items yet and I don't have an ETA. However, we have yet to put in production orders for the OST, game discs, and collector's box yet.
The reason for the game delay is because of the ongoing porting effort of Narcissu 1+2 to the newer engine. Currently the engine update for Narcissu 1/2 is getting close to completion, all the scripts were integrated to the new standard after a million broken bugs. (There's no documentation for the back end so it was hours and hours of trial and error.)
That's all fixed as of early/mid June... HOWEVER, we hit a bunch of hardcoded menu options in the engine that are in Japanese, so we had to send the exe back to Japan to have that section translated and recompiled after failing to work around the issue with alternate menus and stuff. We're waiting on the engine developer to deliver a fresh exe to us sooner than later.
We can't produce the game discs without the finalized Narcissu 1+2 builds, and because of the box tolerances, we have to order the boxes and the OST all at once for fitting/tolerance purposes So this one exe is the critical blocker for all the physicals.
So I'm sorry that we got blocked in this weird thing, but we're working to get physical goods in everyone's hands ASAP.
