FULL DISCLOSURE: I am one of the developers of Kokorogawari.
~ Preorders are now available for Kokorogawari on the game’s recently-launched itchi.io page (you can also check out the game’s features and screenshots here as well). Until 15/7/2016, buyers can get the standard edition of Kokorogawari for the special early bird price of US$20, and the deluxe edition for $30. The deluxe edition (all digital) contains the game, the game’s soundtrack, an artbook by the game’s official artist and fanart by the background artist.

A trial of the game’s first chapter is planned to be released during August, by which the game will still be discounted at the trial promotion price of $22 and $32 respectively. From September onwards, Kokorogawari will be reverting to its RRP of $25 and $35 respectively.

Precatio intends to release a trial of chapter 2 and 3 together if 300 preorders are reached by the end of August.

 

With 7 days left to go, Caramel Mokaccino’s Kickstarter has raised Canadian $26,388 (approximately US$20,649) by 629 backers. Four of their six initial stretch goals have been fully funded. Another stretch goal, the R18+ “After Hours” fandisc, has been added. The fandisc will be produced if the campaign reaches Canadian $38,000, and will be a collection of epilogues depicting intimate moments between the couples.

 

A preorder campaign of Oumagatoki ~Kakuriyo no Enishi~ is to take place in the Stella Worth store from 16/6~26/6/2016. Those who preorder at Stella Worth during this period will receive an exclusive bromide of Tokiwa with an exclusive quote by the character.

~ Dictionary: Two new words- Natsumatsuri and Tsuchinoko Kyuubin. Natsumatsuri means “Summer Festival”, and is an annual night-time festival that is conducted every August in Okunezato. Its true name is Okune Jinja Reitaisai, which approximately translates to “Okune’s Regular Shrine Festival”. Tsuchinoko Kyuubin, which roughly translates to “Tsuchinoko Express Delivery Service”, is a delivery company that only operates within Okunezato. However, they’re not often seen- so much so, that it’s considered amongst the young villagers to be good luck to catch sight of the company’s truck or kiss the tongue of the tsuchinoko on the company’s logo. A tsuchinoko is a real-life legendary cryptid creature (like the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot) that is said to resemble a snake.
