New Opening Stretch Goal Funded on BackerKit!
2 months ago – Tue, Jul 18, 2017 at 05:24:38 PM

We've got another happy update for you today: After yesterday's BackerKit reminder, we quickly raised the remaining funding to reach the $27.500 stretch goal, funding the production of a new opening video for Chuusotsu - 1st Graduation!

Total funding now stands at $27.755, with the final stretch goal for a physical artbook at $30.000. Huge thanks to everyone who has contributed, either by backing the project or by spreading the word about it!

 

In case we hit the final stretch goal before the deadline of July 23rd, we will extend the period before locking down surveys to give everyone a chance to back the physical artbook as well.

Final Week on BackerKit - Confirm Your Surveys!
2 months ago – Mon, Jul 17, 2017 at 05:26:39 PM

Hello good backers,

We're entering the final week of raising funding on BackerKit, before we lock down the surveys for Chuusotsu -1st Graduation. There are still 68 backers who haven't chosen their rewards, so please make sure to visit BackerKit via the survey link e-mailed to you.

The survey will be locked down on July 23rd, this Sunday

Thanks to your generous support, we've climbed up to a total of $27.328 - meaning we're only $170 away from the stretch goal for Studio Beast to create a new opening video for Chuusotsu -1st Graduation! If only a few people pick up an extra add-on this week, we'll hit that goal as well. 

Don't forget that pre-orders through the pre-order store will count as well, until July 23rd!

 

After the surveys are closed, you can still change your shipping address, but you can no longer change your reward selection, addons etc, so if you meant to back for add-ons or other extras on Kickstarter, it's especially important you do so now.

Starting next week, we will round up the survey results and begin working on reward production!

BackerKit Survey Reminder
3 months ago – Sat, Jul 01, 2017 at 02:28:02 AM

Hello dear backers,

We're happy to see the BackerKit surveys are getting filled quick - currently 497 of 594 backers have already answered the survey, and the additional funding raised on BackerKit has made the total funding climb up to $27.083!

We are only about $400 shy of unlocking the next stretch goal for a new opening movie at $27.500!

Remember to answer your surveys before July 23rd when we lock down the responses. After that you won't be able to change your reward selection, including selecting additional items with credit you already have from the Kickstarter. 

If you missed the campaign, you can still take part by visiting our pre-order store. The new pre-orders also count toward stretch goals!

 

Looking for something to read while you wait? You can test the demo for Chuusotsu - 1st Graduation to get an early taste of the game.

We also just released a new Demo for the atmospheric mystery visual novel ENIGMA: by Uzumeya, you can download it on the Steam page. The demo contains the entire first route of the game, with 7 endings to unlock, and an estimated playtime upwards of 5 hours, so there's a lot to explore!

 

The world is afflicted with a mysterious disease known as "The Enigma." 

Chester, infected with this disease, finds himself washed onto a lonely island, Carlyle.

As he is being given a tour of the island by the girl who nursed him back to health, Chester finds himself feeling that something is off. There are no doctors from the mainland. Not only is there no information of the outside world, but the inhabitants seem entirely oblivious of the worldwide epidemic.  

---It's as if this place has been completely removed from the rest of the world.  

After a while, Chester finds a conspicuous white forest in the middle of a green expanse.  

"That forest devours people. That's what I believe."  

The forest's name is Enigma. The same as the disease consuming his body.
