    Sure thing. I'm half-sure this is a bootleg game, but holy shit.

    I still have hope that it can succeed, seeing that Cognitive Dissonance, a fangame of the Mother series, got made AND even got an "enhanced edition". Granted, it's held back by the lack of experience of the devs and using RPGMaker, but the passion is here.
    Unless Oddity's devs have trannies and/or ugly men (or alleged women), then it's most certainly going to fail in said case.

    Legend of Utorepia, a short NES-style RPG originally released in 2014.



    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Originally it was released as freeware (and it is still available as one: https://www.freem.ne.jp/win/game/7388) but it seems Steam version will be a paid one.

    The last part is bit worrying...

    Interestingly the developer of this game now works at Alicesoft and directed its indie label's first game, Hentai Labyrinth.

    Hope this releases at $30, but I'd probably go for it at $40 too. Finally, Rune Factory comes to PC!

    His game is listed on Steam. It's titled Guns Undarkness, a "stealth RPG", coming 2023.

    And unrelated, but Kodansha, the big Japanese manga publisher, is now publishing indie games on Steam. One of them is strategy-ish thing.

    Also side-scroller and some co-op puzzle.

    Actually Meguro's game is also published by Kodansha. So probably the hate is from Kodansha.

    I've said this before, but I wouldn't mind if they moved on from Trails. There are now nearly 3 times as many trails games as there are other Legend of Heroes titles before this sub-series began. (14 trails games in total by now)

    They might as well just drop *The Legend of Heroes*.

    Well, they already killed Ys. The last two or 3 sucked a lot.

    I loved all Ys games up to Origin, but the moment they decided to force some braindead NPCs to run around and help you fight, the franchise was dead to me.

    Exactly! I still replay old Ys in almost every console and computer I can get it because I really love the series, but I don't want to play any of the most recent ones.

    It was only "50% done" a few games ago.

    Kondo seems to be happy plodding along selling ~500k per title with a lot of asset recycling to save costs. The bigger margins are clearly in the merchandise business anyway.

    FF15 team's next game Forspoken got a Steam page. No EGS exclusive means they actually want to sell this game.
