  1. Our trusted comrades at Sekai Project have begun working on the third party solution using Steam API, to help distribute the live version Steam keys to the original AppID owners. It may take around the 4th week of April for them to complete it. However, as the announcement title says, the original owners can already get their live version Steam key(s)! 1. Just simply send us an e-mail attanaka@ixtl.jpwith the following details: a. link to your Steam user account. b. (optional) if you have reviewed the game(s), send us a link to the review(s). 2. Addhttp://steamcommunity.com/id/tanaka_muvluv/as a friend 3. Once the friend request has been approved, send them a private message containing your email address. It'll take around 1-7 business days for us to send the key, depending on the amount of requests.
  2. We're almost there everyone, just a bit more until the physical rewards are sent! Once PQube produced the PS Vita cartridges*, they'll send the copies to the company handling the production of PC DVDs, Kickstarter Collector's Boxes**, Kickstarter artbook, and OST. The aforementioned company will alsoassemblethe Collector's boxes before sending it to TOM. Lastly, TOM will be doing the final packaging and shipping to backers’ doorsteps. The digital format of theCODEX is already completed, and will be printed very soon. The rest of the rewards like the pillowcases, Sumika figma, and apparels (T-Shirt, hoodies and TSF Pilot jackets), Destroyer plushies, and TSFshave been produced for quite some time already. *PQube will only produce a finite numberof units, enough to justify our partnership and for them to recoup the manufacturing costs. **Rice Digital's collector's box is different from the Kickstarter's $150 collector's box. **The Kickstarter Collector's Boxes doesn't have any ratings on the cover designs. The ratings only appliesto PS Vita cases. All therewards are coming from TOM's warehouse in Portland Oregon, andESRB/PEGi rating willNOT affect customs taxes. Lastly, while the $80 Kickstarter physical bundle isn't purelyexclusive, Backers still get an extra digital downloadalong with their pledges. Please keep your recipient name, shipping address, telephone numberup-to-date in BackerKit Contact us attanaka@ixtl.jp if you need to change your shipping country, or if you've lost your personal BackerKit link. Please don't share your personal BackerKit link with anyone!

  14. Changes to OST / Music licensing problems

    (Staff/Helroius): I'm curious where you got that 94.7% number. Some of the individual scripts had likeness ratings as low as 2% or 3%. If the script had needed less work, we would havereleased the game on schedule last March. Instead, we made the decision to delay, andchose to improvetranslationquality. The game has almost every line rewritten, 300+ images translated andedited to English, and the developers decided to add many features including image switching, even up tothe last minute. The engine was made to work with touchscreen tablets—nobody knew about this implementation at all until it was demo'ed on one of their weekly Fridaystreams.There were many bugs like unvoiced scenes, particular scenes not playing at all, UI/song translation debates, and more, all of which needed to be carefully found and fixed. There were many items whichtook a lot of passing back and forth in order to get approved, and thiscan be stressfulsometimes for the team. We really care about this game, and want it to be as good as possible. There arethousands of Skype chat logs in the main editing group conversation,and I witnessedhow thelines were carefully edited and discussed thoroughly. Have you fully read the Steam version?The team mentioned how Kei's personalityare like night and day in comparison to the fan translation, and more accurate to the intended characterization in the JP version. Nuance and clarity have been improved across the board, characterization is improved, and Extra is actually very funny, now—we've heard this multiple times from fans who were surprised, because they didn't remember Extra being so good in the original translation. Being delayed by months isn't something to be dismissed -- everyone, including the managers, needsto get paid, so going over schedule has huge implications. Say this game was meant to be released by March, and here we are, 4 months overdue. That means 4 more months where everyMuv-Luv team member needs to be paid, and that includesJapan staff from both ixtl and age-soft working on the project. What you said about "we could've done x" during Kickstarter—yes, there were many things we shouldn't have done becauseit just bloated the project scope and made the shipping, inventory management a lot expensive. But we can't cry over spilled milk, especially at this point,and can onlycarry on with the best of our abilities. The effect of getting a million dollars on Kickstarter isn't also as helpful as you think. Like you, most companies we negotiatewith tend to overcharge us forthe same reason—"You're the most funded Visual Novel so you should pay us max price!"If you wanted a straight answer if we made any money on Kickstarter, the answer is no. The "profits"are just enough for developing the game and to make sure everyone is paid, and the rest are going toward rewards fulfillment.
  15. Changes to OST / Music licensing problems

    We already forwarded a message to the developers asking ifwe will be removing orreplacing any of the OSTs from Alternative. I think it would be best for everyone to wait until we hear from them.
  16. Changes to OST / Music licensing problems

    We didactually ask ixtl about it. Gab specifically asked: "Also, the soundtrack 'Scandal' (the one like a parody of the Ricky Martin song) seems to have been totally replaced by a new soundtrack, can we confirm if this was supposed to be deliberate? While new songs are good, there will be fans who miss the old ones too (eg me ;_;)" Evan: "i think we should at least ask if there’s a reason why the song “Scandal!” isn’t being included though. i imagine for plagiarism concerns, but i think some people are gonna complain about it not being included, and the new song isn’t even in the same genre. it’s the first thing about the new version i’m kinda worried might be perceived as a negative change" Our communications and assistant manager, Nicolas said: "They removed Scandal because it haslicense troubles in Japan too." (did not elaborate further since he was answering a long list of questions from the tl team)
  17. Changes to OST / Music licensing problems

    Hi Euphoric, Thank you for the feedback. We did promise we're bringing new songs for the game. "Drama Bomb" may not be pleasing for everyone as a replacement for Warudakumi, but "A Matter of Pride" is pretty good, isn't it? Or did you not prefer having the new soundtrack at all? Nonetheless, we will confirm the OSTs in question and suggest not to replace anything at all. Also, around 50% of our fundingare actually going to production,shipping, and inventory maintenance. We are really walking on thin ice as we tread through Muv-Luv Alternative's localization. If the fanbase will be this merciless to us, then surely everyone'sefforts will fall apart. We are doing our best here.There were many worse issueswe managed to prevent before release (which took months, weeks to reach anagreement from all sides), and we do apologize for everything that seemed like we'veoverlooked. Again, we will try to listen to everyone's feedback, and address them to the developers. We hope for everyone's patience on the matter and a little bit of mercy will do... That's all we're asking for. Again, thank you for the feedback, and for backing our Kickstarter campaign : )
  18. "That" Scene (Possible spoilers)

    Hi David. we still need to talk about it today/within the week. I just wrote it during the weekend and it's Monday morning in Japan as we speak.
  19. "That" Scene (Possible spoilers)

    Because of the Unlimited unlocking situation, we gave them a clear list of what should be in Muv-Luv Alternative this time to make sure we're all in the same page. The list includesnot touching the gore cgand Asu e No Houkou being the one that plays upon game start Furthermore, any CGs that are zoomed in (or "cropped")should be at least scrollable in thegallery for full viewing.
  20. Still have not received a key

    Hello there, $35 pledge means you've pledged for the third part of the trilogy, "Muv-Luv Alternative", which is coming out later this year. if you want to upgrade your pledge, please send us an email at muvluv@degica.com using your Kickstarter email.
  21. Hello Sasakyo, can you kindly pm me the email you used for the Kickstarter?It's too late already to receive the gift bags at this point, and we can onlycheckour records what happened to the bag, or if you weren't included in the list. We're really sorry about this --sending out the early gift bags was more like a dry run with Tokyo Otaku Mode's services so we definitely knowhow tohandlethe main goods next time.
  22. Original openings

    Hello there, The original songs still play at the same spot they play during the original game. Unless you mean replacing the spot where the ps3 version is playingright now? Cheers, The Muv-Luv Team
