      Yeah it's sorted now but I had to switch to my credit card instead as the bank automatically cancel cards for potential fraud cases. I guess it's the right thing for them to do, but still really irritating...

      @Bagofrats Happen to me too. Easy fix on my side but still a bit annoying. Tried calling your bank?

      Just a heads up, saw you try to collect payment just now and my bank blocked it as a fraudulent transaction and blocked my debit card... *sob*

      Didn't seem any different to collections I've had before, but now I have no debit card which is annoying..

    6. Ross on

      What time today is our cards going to be charged?

    7. Auron on

      I have a question: Since the Light Novels and the Visual Novel itself are shipped on different dates, am I getting charged the full amout at once or do I pay things seperatly. when they are ready?

      Ok when I looked more closely it seemed to be about Sakura Sakura, still think that Newrit is drm free but disregard what I quoted.

      Yes, the physical version is drm free (I should add that to the FAQ, thanks for mentioning it)

    10. Rinoa D. Marukusu on

      I've already backed this game with a decent amount for the Collector's Edition, but I thought it had been mentioned that the physical copy would be DRM-free...? But now I cannot find out if it is. I sure hope I did not make the mistake of backing a DRM-damaged game, but if it indeed is DRM-free, I will back with more via BackerKit. Please reply soon; thank you.

      Hi! I'm just wondering if you had partnered with any distribution medium other than Steam, or if the only way to get the digital game is planned to be Steam. I know this might be impacted by some of the "issues" on Steam lately

      The Backerkit issue is exactly what I came here to check because I too saw it was expected to close in March and have been confused since no mention of it has ever been in any of the past months updates. Very glad there'll be a two week notice, too.


    14. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      Hey Bagofrats and Hades! Sorry for the late response.

      We haven't charged for Backerkit yet. We're holding off until we're closer to the release since we believe that your money should be in your hands for as long as possible.

      We'll be updating you guys as we get closer to release, and you'll have at least two weeks notice before we charge your cards.

    15. Hades on

      @Sol Press
      Similiar question as Bagofrats. Survey is closed and have status Answered, so i can't change pledge, but did u already charged bank accounts for it?

    16. Missing avatar


      Hello, Sol Press. I see on a comment that you closed Backerkit on the 10th of March but in my backerkit I can still see the survey as open? Can I still amend my order as I was only at the $1 level and might decide to upgrade.

    17. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      Hi Dakota! At the moment there is no news, unfortunately. We'll keep you guys up to date if this changes!

      Any new news if the other VN's will be getting released?

    20. Hades on

      Soooo... Sol Press.. Mby "Mirai Radio to Jinkou Hato" as your next project? Looks like ur with good terms with Laplacian ;)

    21. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @Auron Sorry for the delay! The last day to decide your pledge will be March 10th. Backerkit cards will be cards on the 15th. We can work with you to charge your card at any time. Unfortunately, one of the factors for shipping is that each novel being mailed out at different dates.

      @Miguel The packaging will be the same.

    22. Missing avatar

      Miguel on

      will the packaging be different between the all ages and 18+ physical copies?

    23. Auron on

      Sorry, if it was already answered somewhere, but I had a few questions.

      -What is the last date to decide on your pledge? As I have want stuff for 230$, the decision to buy will be good thought over.
      -When will I be charged? Since I need give my payment informations away, I think, its ether paying now or just a pre-charge to my card. Which one is it?
      Ah and 50$ for Shipping is quite the price for a game and 3 light novels^^...
      Thanks in advance

    24. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @Aaron Fox Yep!

    25. Aaron Fox on

      So if I change my pledge level to "67 Seconds Until Takeoff" I'll get both physical and digital release?

      Hao Yan Foo on

      @Sol Press Thank you very much. Got it ordered now.

    27. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @Aaron Fox The physical version in the addons will only come with the physical version. However please keep in mind, if you pledged to get access to Backerkit you can change your pledge level.

      @Radosław Wójciak We will be sending out the light novels as they're produced as they will take several months between each volume.

      @Hao Yan Foo Our apologies! We've fixed this, the physical soundtrack is now available in the addons section.

    28. Missing avatar

      Hao Yan Foo on

      I had asked before about if there would be a seperate add-on for a physical soundtrack instead needing to pay for the $90 edition where it is included. The reply I got was that it would be made available but I hasn't happened yet. I can assume there won't be one then?

    29. Landis on

      which currency? I added the 3 LN's and it was only $12.90 additional for them with $20 for the pledge level. Total of $32.90 US.

    30. Missing avatar

      Radosław Wójciak on

      Additional 22$ for shipping of 3 LN? It's a little hard :/
      Shipping cost of CE - 20$.
      Shipping cost of CE + 3 LN - 43$.

      Why so much?

    31. Aaron Fox on

      If we buy the physical version in the addons will we also receive a digital copy? or will we just have to wait for the physical version?

    32. Missing avatar

      Radosław Wójciak on

      Thanks for explaining.

    33. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @Radosław Wójciak Users who backed the Kickstarter receive the digital version as well. This is so that users who pledged for a Physical version will still be able to play when the digital version is ready.

      However, this bonus is only for Kickstarter backers.

    34. Missing avatar

      Radosław Wójciak on

      I see tier with collectors edition for 90$ (it's digital and physical aspects) and collectors edition - addon with only physical aspects for the same price?

    35. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @Brian You will be able to, but the pricing may change.

      @YumeCreations Unfortunately they are not.

      I don't know if this has been answered yet, but would we be able to purchase the physical copies of the light novels after the backer kit has closed?

    38. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @J. Douglas Wellington The digital artwork will be sent out by the end of the week!

      I was a Libra backer and pledged $55. When will the digital version of the promo artwork be released?

    40. Sol Press 2-time creator on

      @Irxson Physical versions of the light novels will be available for purchase.

      @Dakota Stevenson We're still talking about the other three novels. It's possible that they will be made if there is a large enough demand for it. We'll most likely have more information as we get closer to the release of the game.

      Dakota Stevenson on

      I was hoping to get Alice's light novel. Is there anyway that's still possible?

    42. Irxson

      So how will the Light Novels work? Will we be able to purchase phisycal versions?

    43. Yuzchastics on

      Congrats Newrin guys! :)

      Good job ; ) So now take a little break and MiKandi - It is ur turn to new project now. Libra was fine and cool, same Newton but it is time to move further into 2018 :D

      @MiKandi Japan -We don't bite *wink*.- Hmm... I see nothing wrong with that. ~Walks over to say hi~ *Some say Scott died that day, some say he ran away in fear of his life, but maybe he was turned into a vampire! ~Pans to Scott drinking tea while playing Visual Novels with everyone~ :P

      I am really happy that things worked out and we were able to make the 4th stretch goal. Things got pretty close there towards the end, but everyone pulled through. Here's to a great start of 2018! \^o^/

    46. Rinoa D. Marukusu on

      Congrats!! °˖✧\(≧▽≦)/✧˖° Yay! Another stretch goal reached...!!

    47. MiKandi Japan Collaborator

      CONGRATS Newtonians, Sol Press, and Laplacian!

      That was an incredible campaign and quite the nailbiter at the end, right? Those final pledges were crucial in grabbing that 4th Stretch Goal we'd been after for the past several days. Woot!

      Now that the campaign is finished, we all know this is just the beginning of the next chapter. We're really looking forward to watching the game grow and mature through development until its ready to be enjoyed in all it's juiciness! Can't wait until the day comes!

      In the meantime, let's all celebrate and give a victory cheer for another awesome visual novel coming West! ^_^

      Ah, and before I forget, please check us out on Twitter! Stop by and say hi some time. We don't bite *wink*.

      Grats on the successful Kickstarter! I wonder if there is any chance that Backerkit funds will count towards the stretch goals. I was really hoping we would hit the Alice and Emmy light novels.
