< report >I'd say so. With the exception of some console titles that force a copyright watermark on screenshots, there shouldn't by anything in the screenshot that is not part of the game.

< report >So, the Switch and PS4 physical editions of Fault Milestone One (both standard and collectors) have been sold on the Limited Run Games website this past summer. (r46643, r78701, r78702, r78700)

The website pages say:
"This release is not a part of the Limited Run Games Collection and is not a numbered release. We are distributing this title on behalf of Sekai Project. Missing out on this release will not compromise a complete Limited Run set."
and the covers only show the Sekai Games logo, and not the Limited Run Games logo.

What am I supposed to put in the publisher field? Both? If only one, which one? I currently chose only Sekai Games.

< report >While LRG says they are just distributing the game, they did manufacture the physicals, didn't they? They aren't simply serving as a store, are they? In that case, I'd say they are a co-publisher. Unless it was SP that manufactured the discs, and only had LRG ship them...

< report >Hmm Libra of the Vampire Princess: Lycoris & Aoi in "The Promise" PLUS Iris in "Homeworld" clearly seems to be a Japanese-made game but has no Japanese release. It's probably another "written in Japanese and then translated to English" dealio... but would the original language still be Japanese if nobody could get a Japanese copy?Last modified on 2021-03-20 at 19:28

< report >It was a DLC funded through Kickstarter as a stretch goal. Not sure if it was originally written in JP though. Most likely.

< report >is there any point in keeping 3 original trial screenshots for entries like link and uploading 7 screenshots for full release instead of deleting 3 trial screenshots and just uploading 10 new screenshots for full release?
is there any point in keeping trial screenshots for some entries in general, if there is no difference between trial and full release?

< report >No, if the trial has identical content that is incorporated in the full game, I don't think there is a reason to keep the screenshots separated as belonging to a trial, and could be merged into the screenshots from the full game.

Note, that in some cases trials have exclusive content, in which case the screens do serve a point to showcase the said content.

< report >Is it permitted to re-use official screenshots if they meet the usual requirements? I couldn't find any statement either way. So far I've assumed that it isn't permitted, and developers seem to be terribly at taking screenshots in general, but it could save a lot of effort when they do get it right.

< report >r67644 was originally released as freeware. However, the developer put a price-tag on it recently, in order to match the just released Steam version. There are no significant differences in content between the free and the commercial release, from what I gather.

Should there be two releases in this case, one for the new commercial release and one for the original (and no longer available) freeware release, or is it sufficient to change the original release to a commercial release and possibly add a note? The same question also applies to r72620, though the Steam version is not out yet.

< report >

It's simply discouraged, because the official screens frequently do not correspond to our guidelines. However, there is no law that prevents you from using them, if you are sure they are suitable.

is it sufficient to change the original release to a commercial release and possibly add a note
This. We don't add a new release entry if the release changes the status between free and paid, or vice versa. Simply changing the status, and possibly adding a note is enough.

< report >Should all girls with routes be listed as main characters? Because I really don't think so.
She has a route, she's a main character.
I don't think that's how it works. Side heroines are a thing. Official site shows that all 3 girls whose status was edited from side to main are indeed side heroines (silver crown next to the names, as opposed to the golden crowns the main girls have). Unless they have a serious presence in the overall story, I see no reason to change them to main chars.
