< report >Juna Usagi

The VN this character belongs to involves a lot of parallel worlds and stuff, so I added entries for all of the alternate world versions of the characters. Out of all them, this one character turns out to actually /not/ be an alternate. I.e she is not a different character that needs her own entry.

< report >#5080 We don't remove trials or demo if the full product is (or is going to be) available.
That partial release, on the other hand, might become obsolete if the version gets updated with the full version; but right now, those two releases can stay.Last modified on 2023-02-05 at 17:46

< report >He didn't ask to remove both releases but only one because they are both the same demo. If you look at the KS page:
You can already PLAY DEMO version of the game today, please add One Eleven to your WishList on Steam.

Also you can download here:
DEMO at Kartridge
DEMO at Anivisual

< report >EZZ, you can add Purojekuto Sekai Karafuru Sutēji! fīcharingu Hatsune Miku (great transcription am I right?) to your list. It's a "non-stop rhythm action" gachagarbage. I was gonna delete it after I watch a whole bunch of videos but then I am not that certain after I watched a more walkthrough-ish video. It had some black panels with narration on them.Last modified on 2023-02-10 at 05:21

< report >r48907 Kickstarter went silent in 2019 and the comments are angrily complaining about it being a scam. Developer was last heard from on tumblr in 2020 claiming the game would be done in a few months, then vanished forever. The game webpage times out. The facebook page has been locked or deleted.

< report >Slow Damage - All-Ages Edition

Based on this reply from JAST on Twitter from last month, JAST has most likely cancelled plans for the all-ages ver. on Steam due to, from the sounds of it, the game possibly being rejected by Valve for its content.

< report >The reply after that seems fairly clear "Steam has extremely strict rules about no child exploitation in games, and child exploitation is at the core of Slow Damage's backstory."

OTOH they might go for a non-H version somewhere else like GOG? (must we use the "all ages" label when it's blatantly not all ages?)

Musical Dream Note isn't a visual novel
What you meant to say is: "It's from an unknown developer, and nothing has been released yet", right? Because it does seem they are making a visual novel. Oh well, I'll delete it for now.

A producer entry may be created in one of the following scenarios:
When it is needed to link the developer or publisher to a release entry. In this case, the producer is required to have released at least one completed product. This means that translation projects and starting developers may only be added when they've actually finished a project.

My expectation is that this applies to visual novel entries as well, otherwise you would have entries with no developer (is that even allowed?). I guess that this is used to not be flooded by western vaporware.Last modified on 2023-02-17 at 08:55

< report >Are there that many "western vaporware"? because as I see it, what you refer to is probably stuff from patreon but given that they always release something, even if it burns, and it often does, it will stay anyway, so your rule wouldn't do anything, not that I am for it in the first place. I add promising stuff that is only announced on Reddit and I don't see a problem with that.
And yes, entries without producers are perfectly allowed. The rule you are quoting was made for translators who tend to start stuff for the social boost but never achieve anything.
I have never been bothered by too many VN to delete. It's always translators who are the real pain in the ass.Last modified on 2023-02-17 at 15:54

< report >We did at some point have an (unwritten) rule about not accepting & deleting VNs with no tangible releases from developers with no previous track record. Of course, that rule hasn't really been enforced in the past decade.

< report >>Are there that many "western vaporware"?

If we made entries for every project that was ever announced on lemmasoft but never got as far as a demo, yes, we would be flooded. It's been my understanding that it's not appropriate to add that sort of game unless the developer has a track record of having made SOMETHING.

Same for kickstarter games. If it's a total nobody who's never made a game and there's no demo and the project is pretty clearly going to fail, I'm not going to add a listing.

I don't go out of my to hunt down ones where the dev has added themselves here though, I only flag them if I stumble across them randomly and the project appears to have gone dead.

< report >Project SEKAI Colorful Stage! feat. Hatsune Miku.
reason: same as why BanG Dream! Girls Band Party! got deleted and t2108.4041

Out of the loop. But was there any recent change about rules on gacha game inclusion?

(And sorry to fellow Vocaloid fans.)Last modified on 2023-02-17 at 23:33
