someone needs to revive the Extra2 page, and hopefully the Zwei one later.

That's pretty awesome. Good for them in toughing it out and coming back hopefully stronger and more motivated than ever.

I highly doubt there'll be any. When they "rose from the ashes" late last year I said to myself: they've come back to life only to sell more Aokana merch after their mobile game failed to gain traction, and time has proven me right. Even EXTRA2, which they mentioned they "intend to make" in their back-to-life note, has not received any real update since: all they did was announce they were looking to hire both scenario writers and artists, and run a bunch of polls on Twitter. Everything else they've done since restarting is to sell Aokana merch; old merch, new merch (e.g. new daki covers for sub characters), everything they can think of. I have little faith in them actually making EXTRA2 happen, let alone ZWEI. This is, after all, a company that sat on the Aokana franchise selling merch for so long, couldn't finish producing two mini-fandisks in that time span, decided in late 2018 that they'd rather close shop and pursue mobile games instead (while screaming left, right and center on Twitter and on their website that "there's categorically, absolutely and definitely no chance whatsoever another Aokana sequel will ever be made"), and now come back wanting to sell more Aokana merch while dangling that EXTRA2 carrot again (and they conveniently deleted everything their Twitter account said before rebirth).Last modified on 2020-05-24 at 11:18

Erghh.. irritating. Too bad, that's the production companies of my first two VN's Ricotta and Sprite nowaday have become the shadows of themselves.

It takes time to make stuff, you know.

I’d love for them to actually make EXTRA2, then ZWEI, and if they still want to keep at it and make an EXTRA3 for Asuka (which, to be clear, is not possible in reality), I’d be ecstatic. Their track record doesn’t imbue me with hope, however.Last modified on 2020-06-03 at 20:01
