Idol Magical Girl Chiruchiru ☆ Michiru tapestries revealed! + Other news

Happy New Years Backers!

We've updated our reward images with the Chiru^2 tapestry designs! Please check the story section of the Kickstarter for a preview. If you're at the $420+ tiers you will get one or both tiers depending on your pledge. If you want to include them as add ons please add $40 for one or $80 for both of them.

We've been asked a few times about how to pledge for OSX/Linux ports and if the physical discs will include OSX/Linux versions... Porting the Grisaia series to OSX and Linux is going to be a complex technical process. In order to avoid delaying the release of the games, the initial physical release shipped to Kickstarter backers will be PC-only. However, if your pledge includes digital copies of the games, we will patch in free access to the Mac and Linux ports when they're ready.

      The difference between the last two stretch goals was $40k, currently an extra $85k has been raised. Will there be more stretch goals or additional rewards to come?

      If it comes down to this (only including the Windows version on disc), why not just ask in a survey which version of the game you want on the physical copy? If a person wants the Mac/Linux version on disc, they'll just have to wait longer to get that physical version instead of not at all.

      I'm pretty much ready to drop my physical pledge, too. My expectation was for a DRM-free copy with Linux support to replay in the future.

      "Initial physical release [...] will be PC only" - implying that physical pledgers will get the port version, but will have to wait for it to be available.

      Digital pledgers can "claim" theirs straight away, and Mac/Linux ports will automatically be away able like any cross-platform game on Steam.

      That's how I read it.

      @Andy physical pledge doesn't include digital downloads.

      Cancelling my physical pledge then.

      OK, so it does look (if you pay attention) that there is a good chance that physical backer can still get the ports. Just a bit later. Digital backers are probably easier to accommodate, if the game ends up on Stem anyway, by giving the, the code straight away and once the ports go live they will automatically have access to them.

      It is still a bit vague, though. And this is just for the ports that are a listed part of the KS. And people wonder why there is still a hell of a lot of vocal uncertainty about the uncut version. And uncertainty REALLY doesn't play well with putting money down. Not when you know that something will definitely happen, but have no clue whether your current contribution is going towards it or not. Be it physical or 18+, people just want guarantees.

      Mentioned that digital is cheaper only because it boggles the mind that the *cheaper* version gets more features (supports more platforms)

    10. Boris on

      So...
      A - digital copies are extra-cost, something that AFAICT seems unique to Sekai Project.
      B - digital copies are cheaper.
      C - ONLY digital copies will get Mac/Linux support.

      Why is anyone with Mac/Linux on their PC (Personal Computer, not Microsoft Computer) supposed to be interested in the physical copy? Isn't it just an empty, pretty piece of cardboard?

      But what about DRM-Free version?

      So we're out of luck then, those of us who are Mac users and backed for physicals copies? Will we have to buy it twice? I don't mind if my physical copy is PC only, but I feel cheated if I won't have access to a playable version for free...

      Or you could also patch in Mac/Linux for Physical copy owners. I don't see any reason not to do that... You're going to deny Mac/Linux owners a physical copy in their collection just because they don't have a PC?
