I didn't know any one was translating it. Wow I hope its still going. (I've loved everything else from that circle)

Isn't that just down because visualnews.net as a whole is? (except these forums on a different server)

Hi, registered this time. ^^

The visual novel has been on the Deja Vu Visualnews subsite for
a while now with a "Coming Soon" status. I really hope they
manage to release it.

BTW does anyone know why the main site is still down?

Thanks ^_^. Yes I read it, the thread then went into the ethics of donations and so on, however he did say that he settled the bill in his final reply. Maybe his host messed up and deleted his files.

Just double checking... we're talking about this game right?

http://milkcat.jp/introduction/kimikaza/index.htm

Just wondering.. is this game a free doujin? The rest of the work from that circle has been free but I don't see a download link (only a patch one).

If its not, I have nothing against buying it I just need to know how or where :3 I love the Demo Movie so much X3

Yeah, that's the one- it's doujin, but commercial.

Will you be releasing the full version (with due permissions)
or a patch? If a patch, is this game easy to purchase?

Thanks for doing this game, it looks really good.
Appreciate your hard work!

Commerical doujin are often pretty hard to find T.T What is the average price?

Neither PaletWeb nor Himeya have it listed so a custom order seems the only choice for those outside Japan...

I will definitely buy this if I can find it

Wasn't Piece of Wonder a commercial doujin? Assuming the anime and VN localizing industries are all alive and healthy, I would have expected the majority of VN commercial localizations to consist of commercial doujins -- their licenses would be way cheaper than Air/Kanon/Clannad.

PoW was indeed. Now find a Japanese copy of it without using custom orders or Y!Japan auctions.

Kind of difficult isn't it?

As I'm sure you know, doujins have a smaller print run so they're harder to find. The english version of PoW was actually slightly more than the Japanese one due to its doujin status, a reversal of the usual price drop of english versions. (like for Ever 17 the Japanese price was 5,800 yen for the edition that was translated and sold for 40$)

Sorry SasCpt here.

I contacted Paletweb and the Milkcat site. Paletweb said this item
is sold out and unavailable. What search string would you use on Yahoo
Auctions for it though? I tried everything from the website and found
no results direct or via Rinkya. I guess I could try Masamichi at
Crescen-Shop or my girlfriend who's Japanese but she doesn't
like my ummmm anime/visual novel habits so there's no way that would work. :)

To recoup the costs of translating, publishing, and marketing games, you still need to release products that people want to buy. The problem with doujinsoft is that production values are rarely at the level of even lower-tier commercial games, so they're likely to be ignored.

I think Piece of Wonder has already fallen victim to that.
