I love JRPGS and this game.

Japan has so many amazing games that people from the western world have no idea about. I've always found them to be the most fun games. I was playing this in Japanese (rather slowly since i've only been learning for a little over a year) right before I saw it's english demo on steam. I think your translation is fantastic for a western audience (with the exception of Kay-o-Day! and Yaifications! lol).

I instantly pre-ordered the game then and noticed it's actually out-selling lots of big name games here, which I couldn't believe. I think there are alot of JRPG fans that would gladly buy such localizations in the future. There is such a huge drought in quality games lately, everybody spending all their time and effort on graphics, games lack depth and that fun/fast addictive nature. JRPGs are usually the opposite, lets get more of them .

I almost never post in steam forums because the maturity level seems to be a bit lacking but... Thanks for localizing a great game. /fan for life

Actually japan is the same as west as most of the time only indie companies make new interesting games. Rest justs moves out loads of generic Jrpgs.
Western FPS = Japanese JRPG in being generic. Teenagers go out to save the world = Bald space marines

I was thinking more specifically doujin games and visual novel/rpg hybrids, my bad, I don't play console games, so I don't really know what the "normal" state of JRPGs is, just computer games.

I'd much rather play a game like this than the latest Final Fantasy VII spinoff they've shovel-ware'd out!

hmm I recentely got to play Galaxy Angel in english, its a 12+ VN crossed with homeworld as the closest thing to describe it... theres 3 games in the series but only 1 is translated.... which is a shame for a game released back in 2002 is reeks of quality.

Japan just knows how to attract attention better.
Anime. (anime characters are designed to attract attention)
Large eyes, small noses, small mouths, coloured hair. Think about it. It looks incredibly cute that way.
JRPGs.
Otome games.
Classical doujin games.
touhou. (yes, too bad america)
doujin. (yaaaay)
Tentacle...umm...material. =/
A more COLOURFUL culture. In every sense.
From clothes to food to idealism.
And a somewhat more fascinating history. (samurai, ninjas, wth >
