There aren't any plans to release a trial version at this point. It's a great idea, though, and while I believe we've been prevented from putting them out in the past due to various constraints I'll look into the possibility of releasing demos in advance of some of our other upcoming titles.

I'll ask about this in regard to Yume Miru tomorrow just to be sure, but to my knowledge it's not in the pipeline.

I hope it's a possibility--trial editions are a great way for undecided people to get a taste of the title without committing to actually purchasing it. Especially for a game which already has a Japanese trial, I'd imagine it wouldn't be too difficult transposing the translated text from the finished game into the trial parts, but then again if the staff is already fully swamped just trying to get the full release out the door it's kind of a moot point.

Theres also possible licensing issues. It may cost more to purchase a game + demo then just game itself. Do you know if that's the case Shingo?

I think someone asked a similar question on the Hirameki message boards; if I remember right, the answer was something along the lines that for the most part, there weren't really any additional licensing issues with a translated trial edition that had been released in Japanese, but Hirameki was unable to create trial editions for games that didn't have them for the Japanese release. Of course, I could be wrong--it was a while ago and my memory is fuzzy. I guess it could also vary by company, too.

Since Shingo seems to have temporarily disappeared, my quick mini update on YMK.

The game is supposed to be "gold" (which I assume means ready to go into production) within two weeks, so release date should potentially not be very far away now.

Just finished updating the PP Yume Miru site. The game description is basically unaltered, but the character descriptions have been revised along with some of the technical specifications. A full version of the theme song is available for download now as well (the same one that's on the official Japanese site), with translated / transliterated lyrics. I nearly felt myself floating out of my chair while I was working on those lyrics...

Just one question: the character description under Tsubaki Hirofumi states that he is a "self-proclaimed 'ero-gay'." Is this correct (ども,エロゲイで~す!), or is he supposed to be an 'eroge fan' or something similar?

I believe that's supposed to be a joke, because he claims to like men and he plays eroge.

That's what I suspected, but I just wanted to double-check.

Tsubaki's character is something of a contradiction. He's gay, and yet he's into eroge - hence the "ero-gay" pun (present in the original Japanese literature, not of my own invention). He's suave and flirtatious, yet serious and dependable. His hitting on the main character is strictly humorous, as are his attempts to promote his favorite bishoujo games, though the inevitable meta-conversation does ensue ("pursuing a girl in real life is different from pursuing one in a game, Tsubaki", etc.).

This isn't to say he's completely a comic foil, however; he plays a serious (though minor) role in the resolution of a couple of the paths, acting as an advisor and confidant to the protagonist. A generally likeable character, in my opinion.

A personally important question has come out, and I fear it may be a kinds of question a little too sensitive to ask officially.

A: It's not a typo; the Japanese version was released on two CD-ROMs, and the English version is scheduled for a DVD release. This will have no effect on game content, however.
But I dare ask!! ... *whisper* Will the region code include 2? *whisper*
