< report >@npzmzfg You did a really good job with the research. I think it's safe to say that they are both same game thus Bride of the Nile and War & Romance should be combined into one page. They even have the same screenshots and logos.Last modified on 2021-02-25 at 12:39

< report >r57923 is the same as r74341 except it was put through this converter which just does a few tweaks to make VNDS visual novels work on the Vita VNDS interpreter. It should probably be deleted. I know I should've turned r57923 into a proper VNDS release entry instead of creating r74341 but it's already five months too late for that now.
EDIT: Ditto with r57924 and r30236
EDIT2: Ditto with r57926 and r63522
EDIT3: r41343 is a duplicate of r41342. The converter supports both languages.Last modified on 2021-02-26 at 17:45

< report >DirectDoggo is a dupe of Direct Doggo.

I have no idea why r72402 exists... According to SteamDB, the dev didn't push an update on 2019-04-11. The game surports Windows, Mac and Linux at launch, and still only includes English language as for now, there's nothing notable it may add.

Since Wuya Daxian got deleted, I think Antony de Fault, Chard and Richard Campbell should be deleted too.

And here's why Once10 should get deleted:
- r77513 is the first release of Once'. The team abandoned the project and released an 80% finished version.
- r77515/r77517/r61693 is a total remake with new graphics, soundtracks, and it's completed.
- r61765 (Once10) is a Unity port of r77513.

< report >Does this really need a separate release entry for every time the game was updated?

r78237, r78238, r78239, r78240, r78241, r78242 so far seems a bit much.

< report >#3663 It was my understanding that versions that differed in some significant manner (here through the addition of new chapters) deserved separate releases. But if that is a misunderstanding on my part, then naturally I won't object to most of those getting nuked.

Edit: Depending on the answer, r63272 may also be a candidate for deletion (judging by the changlog in the game), as may most of the releases for Pesterquest.Last modified on 2021-03-01 at 13:19

Ugh... We have never really established precise rules for demos, but it's never been a major problem how users treat them. However, in my opinion 6 demos is really an overkill. Imho, the demo release entries should represent some sort of milestones in the preliminary creation of the game. I'd say that we should leave the first and the last iteration of the demo, without the inbetweens.

Changeling Tale seems sort of okay to me, though the latest (and the last according to the dev) iteration of the demo is 1.6, so r63272 should probably be updated.

Pesterquest absolutely do not need all those entries. This is a different issue altogether. This was a work in progress with cumulative updates with each release superseding the previous ones. Only one release should eventually remain, and that is the last one - the complete game.

Since Wuya Daxian got deleted, I think Antony de Fault, Chard and Richard Campbell should be deleted too.
Double ugh... Why do the devs have such an interesting way of crediting themselves. In both cases the group credited themselves as the Publisher, but listed every member of the group as Developers. Eacil seems to have gone the way of simplification and deleted Wuya Daxian, crediting only the group as both the dev and the pub. I probably agree this is the smarter way, even if it doesn't follow the Steam listing, so I'll probably delete those other guys too.

< report >Whoops. Sorry about giving you extra work in that case.

If you nuke all but one of the Extended Demo entries, then I can turn the last one into a combined release. It should probably be a partial release too, since the developer was planning "roughly 7" chapters, and it is at 5 extra chapters now.

But I'm not sure I understand why Changeling Tale needs a release both for the 1.0 of the demo (r52886) and for 1.6 (r63272, if we update it). While script has been greatly expanded since 1.0 (which is what I thought motivated the 1.3 entry), there have been multiple additions in different demo releases. See the changelog here: link

Is the idea to have an entry for the original version and for the latest version with substantial additions?Last modified on 2021-03-01 at 18:40

I have admittedly never paid much attention to the demo releases, so I'm making this up as I go, but from what I see in the changelog for Changeling Tale demos, there were multiple chapters added even after the 1.3 release, so it's not really different from your 'Extended Demos'. So, yes, as I have said, my thought is to have the early demo and the latest demo.

It should probably be a partial release too, since the developer was planning "roughly 7" chapters, and it is at 5 extra chapters now.
Wait. Do you mean the full game will have 7 chapters, and the current game has 5? That's... not really a demo anymore. It indeed looks more like a partial to me, though maybe the Kickstarter greed will strike the dev and he will strive to create additional 7 chapters....Last modified on 2021-03-01 at 18:49

No, and sorry for being imprecise. The "extended demo" will have an total of 7 free chapters added, five of which were included in the latest extended demo release. These are all rather short chapters from what I can see. It was announced here: link

There will also be a full release, that the author is planning to fund via a Kickstarter campaign in the near future: link


EDIT: Me saying it should be partial was just me forgetting that there is no such thing as a partial trial.Last modified on 2021-03-01 at 18:59
