Ready for Philosophy? Chuusotsu! 1st Graduation Is Out!
4 months ago – Tue, Apr 24, 2018 at 03:58:10 PM

Hello backers,

We hope you've been enjoying your pre-release copies of Chuusotsu! 1st Graduation: Time After Time!

The rest of the world can now join you, as Chuusotsu! is now available on Steam and other stores! It's been a long road to get here, but we can finally spread the wonderful story with all the world. If you like the game, make sure to share the fun with your friends!

In other developments, we have started working on mailing the rewards this week. 

In specific, almost all rewards for backers who didn't pledge for the Collector's Edition have been prepared for shipping, as well as B2 posters and wall scrolls for all backers, since these will be mailed separately due to size. 

 Having handled the goods in person, we're very impressed with all of their quality, and can't wait to get them into your hands!

We expect to ship this first batch of rewards this or next week. 

The custom USB cards for the Collector's Edition have also been ordered now, and if all goes well we will have all the materials needed for them within a few weeks.

Thank you for the support!
