Would you ever go to a convention outside of the US? I’m a huge fan and live in England, and I’d love to meet you! I know there are lots of other UK fans too!
We would love to, but it’s not an open venue for us right now - mostly because travel is pretty expensive. If we got a con invite, we wouldn’t say no~
I’m a huge fan of all your works, the Jisei series in particular, and I was wondering if you had a name for the next one yet? I was ranting about looking forward to a new game to my friend and she asked what it was called and I just stared blankly for a few minutes before continuing to fangirl over Li Mei and bunnies.
Hehe, Li Mei and bunnies are the best. We don’t have a name yet. There are a couple I’m debating over, and we’ll have an official announcement somewhere down the line.
How do you get the CG of Liam falling on his face in Kansei? I got it once on accident and then I never figured out how to get it again.
Mild spoilers: During the initial exploration, split up and go see Marissa. Tell her the truth, and agree to work with he. After Marissa tells you about Liam’s side dealings, go see Liam. You might have to go a couple times, since he has other things to say first. Eventually, he’ll head to his room and you can get that CG.
Will we be able to download/buy the songs from Backstage Pass? I’m so madly in love with Adam’s voice!!
The OST and Adam’s EP (with several songs) will both be available to buy separately, or packaged with the special edition of Backstage Pass (more details on the special edition as we work them out).
I like to imagine that John lets Sian read scripts over his shoulder because he’s either too tired or too amused to start swatting her away.
The game isn’t even out yet but here I am making fanart. Johnnnn with messy, unkempt hair laskdjsl;akdjs;klfjs;dlkfj ALSO I REALLY TRIED TO MAKE A BACKGROUND BUT ALAS
Oh SNET. Fanart Friday came early this week!
(Which reminds me, I really should open up the fanworks section on the official site so I can post all of these.)
I think it’s just the high contrast cel shading done with Kiri’s hair, but every time I watch Crime Edge I kind of want to
okay that’s better
Everything is Jisei.
Since people were asking, the Mizutani twins look younger than their given age due to a mix of genetics and their exercise habits (lots of running >.>). It’s something Aki uses to her advantage a lot.
Ooh, lots of questions this go-around. Let’s hop to it!
Are you planning on releasing any spin-offs or short stories for your previous or future games? I’d like to see more of the Jisei series and of Re: Alistair.
It could be argued that Backstage Pass is a spinoff of RE: A++, although the exact nature won’t be entirely clear until it’s out. We might do more with Rivenwell Online sometime, but there’s no solid plan for it yet. We definitely have some ideas for spinoffs of Jisei, like a short series of less horrible mysteries (stolen jewels, lost cats) that will come out after the main storyline is complete.
Who does the writing in your group?
Ayu Sakata. Normally this is where I’d add “She’s great! Go check out her other work!” but since it’s me, I’d feel really awkward doing that.
Are there any plans for other merchandise of your games? The only merch I’ve seen is a Alistair figurine and an Artbook for RE:A (which I can’t buy since the shipping fees on Lulu is too expensive).
We’ve got a lot of merchandise we sell at cons, like shirts, keychains, etc. but we don’t have an online store quite set up for that yet (partially because shipping rates really do become insane after a while). But we are working on a way to make it work - so in theory there will be some nice things available to buy online someday. As for upcoming merchandise, there will likely be keychains and phone charms in the near(ish) future.
Hey SakeVisual! I love your work (played almost all of your games) and I’m just a little curious if you’re going to make a figure of all of the RE:Alistair++ characters?
Aww, thank you~ Whether or not we make more Alistair figures depends on how well Alistair sells. At the price they’re at right now, we’re basically breaking even on the price (I know, I know - not “smart business,” but I never claimed I was here for the money). If we get close to selling out, we’ll put up a poll for the next character to get figure-fied. We do have plans for a Li Mei figure eventually, since she and Alistair tied on the “which figure should we make?” poll, so expect to see one of those before another Alistair figure comes out.
could have a link or something to every sunrise? :)
We’re not quiiiite done with it yet, but when it’s out, we’ll post links all over the place.
What are the ages of the characters in the main cast of Jisei/Kansei/Yousei?
Kangai is 18, Li Mei is 14, the twins are 21, and Gurski’s 28.
Time to showcase two of the lovely ladies of Backstage Pass. Celina’s a former child star, so her advice to Nicole isn’t overly enthusiastic.
I will be posting as much of my A-kon pictures as possible in the next few days, but first, here’s one of the things I bought! A beautiful little figure of Alistair from RE:Alistair++ by Sakevisual! I put him on a high bookshelf so he can’t steal my wallet.
Also, Ayu, if you read this, you totally made my day this past Saturday! It made me really happy that you recognized my username and I love the Oneiro stickers you have me. Thank you~!
Thanks for coming by! I really like being able to put names to faces (even internet usernames XD).
And a big thanks to everyone from tumblr who stopped by - you guys are the reason my weekend rocked.
Annd last one. Debated if I should draw him with or without glasses and decided to keep them on lol
Glasses are always a good thing. I really want to say more, but there might be spoilers. Is saying that already a spoiler? Hm… I wonder.
