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

    3. Sol Press 2-time creator on January 7

      @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.

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

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

      @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^/

      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.

      @FlatchestedMaid

      Some quotes from the Q&A page: "The physical version is all-ages. You will be able to change that in BackerKit for no charge, however, please make sure that the laws in your area allow you to legally import it."

      "The 18+ version will be completely uncensored!" So no mosaics.

    17. FlatchestedMaid on January 3

      Was at $55 tier, jumped to $90 tier! Will this release have 18+ patch/nudity content? Thanks!

      Just upped pledge from $90 to $140. If anyone plans on buying stuff in backer-kit, consider adding it now to get the next stretch goal. If you increase money on current pledge tier you can just use the leftover money for backerkit.

      @Sol Press,
      I was not asking for the other novels for free it was more if a tally could be kept of the backerkit addons and if we pass the next goal you could sell the next goal novel at a certain price on backerkit.

      I would gladly purchase the others that did not make the goals within this kickstarter if they were added to backerkit once the next total goal was reached.

      @Nerv987 In fact the LNs haven't even been written yet... This kickstarter campaign decides which ones get written, so I think we should have a say in it too.

    28. Missing avatar

      Nerv987 on January 3

      @Sol Press
      Yea but that still doesn't explain why we can't get a say in it since we are the ones who are backing this KS not them? They haven't been translated yet and they are all LN's so the order should be the ones ppl want. If backerkit money would count for them then I'd be more open to it the way it was because you'll get a lot more money from it, but as you don't want to do that, letting ppl vote for the ones they want would be best.

    29. Missing avatar

      Eldar Zeynalli on January 3

      Would be great if you could give the backers the option to vote for which LNs that gets translated.

    30. Daniel Reich on January 3

      I'll be honest I had no interest in backing this because its flat out bs, that Japan gets the signed shiki at 60 bucks and everyone else gets a massive shaft and cant get it until the 500 dollar package. I think that was by far the best tier and it was blocked to all outside of Japan which is weak.

      I ended up pledging for the collector's edition edition only out of respect for Mikandi and the stand out job they did with LIbra.

      If I may ask, will demand be seen based on backerkit orders of the light novel, or will there be some way for us to help support the decision to make the rest of them? Polls, emails, comments, purchasing something else, or pre-orders of the remaining light novels to see if we meet a certain order number?

    34. Sol Press 2-time creator on January 3

      @Nerv987 The light novels were in direct response to the Japanese community's feedback.

      Regarding Backerkit, any funds generated there have unfortunately already been allocated.

      @Sol Press
      Yea, but why not give the ppl backing this the chance to decide? You haven't translated them yet so I'm not really sure how it could make this any different then giving ppl the chance to choose.
      Also why not have the backerkit funds added toward the stretch goals?

      @Sol Press
      Should’ve posted an update on the digital artbook being available for 30$ on Backerkit along with the price of any other digital content that can be bought on Backerkit that wasn’t already announced earlier.
      Should’ve posted an update on what you said about all light novels being released if demand for them is high even if they weren’t funded.
      Should’ve posted an update that had all of @MiKandi Japan’s comments.
      Should’ve posted an update with all the information above together in one update.

    38. Kaiyoria Chi on January 3

      @Sol Press Thank you even if not free for backers of the tiers I would still buy them it is a pity that this kickstarter didn't make it that far -_-, I've seen mediocre vn's make more than this I guess cause the campaign being during the holidays money was being used elsewhere?

      I too would love to buy the novels even if the stretch goal isn't met. Here's to hoping there is enough demand.

    41. Marco on January 3

      That is good to hear that there is at the very least the possibility that all of the light novels being produced.
      I am the kind of person that likes to read up on everything that a story has to offer.

      Thank you very much for the update. While I am sad to hear that backerkit won't be considered for the stretch goals, I really do hope that you guys are able to produce the remaining light novels anyways.

      My main priority is having them made, whether they are free or not. If possible, I would like to buy them all physically.

    43. Sol Press 2-time creator on January 3

      @Sydney Weyand @Scott Frane @Phillip Stevenson @Kaiyoria Chi Unfortunately, funds generated in Backerkit will not count towards the stretch goals. That doesn’t mean that those light novels won’t be produced, though; if there is enough demand for them it’s totally possible that they will be created (they just won’t be free for backers of “The Laws of Inertia” tier and up).

      @Rabi_Rose @Nerv987 @donovan20055 The order was chosen based upon feedback from the Japanese community. Also, similar to the above, it doesn’t mean that those light novels won’t be written. If there's demand for them, the possibility of being produced is still there.

      The comment on the backerkit was made by a staff member on the Discord, but from what I've read, it's neither been confirmed nor denied since.

      The digital art book will be sent as a steam key?

      I hope they reconsider and allow backerkit to count towards the stretch goals. Most other Kickstarter campaigns count backerkit, so I was really hoping that this one would as well.

      I was counting on backerkit to help us hit some of the higher stretch goals
      so I could collect all of the light novels. T~T

    47. Phillip Stevenson on January 3

      So reading reports that backerkit addons will not be part of the Stretch goals, has this been confirmed?

      I won't lie but if this is the case it will feel like a poor job in the end, here we are with a couple of Light Novels but guess what you will never get the chance to get the others becasue for some odd reason an addon post kickstart does not count.. Even if its classed as an addon in Backerkit.... Makes sense.

      A few Stretch goals on a lot of VN kickstarters are counted on backerkit these days it's like a thank you for funding our project here is one last chance to get more content.
