Posts about MangaGamer
In years past, Manga Gamer used to regularly put out a game every month. Normally very quickly after announcing them. But in 2022, they have only put out a few games. With nothing since June and seemingly nothing coming out in September either. They also haven't updated the project status page since July despite several games being announced since then.
I know they are just publishing things, and they don't have control over translation speeds or even what licenses they get. But I am wondering if there is some reason that is known for why they have had fewer games this year than the last few. For example, with the assumption, they don't suddenly drop something In the next three months, this is the first year they haven't released a waffle made game since 2017. (They released *three* in 2021 in comparison)
This is not meant to be a complaint. I know these things take time. I am just wondering if there are any known changes or issues with the company that has led to this situation. I couldn't find anything online about this, or really anyone talking about the drop-off in the number of releases.
Also updates on other Rance series:
IX beta build is ready.
Rance X sitting at 52% translation
And the Pillage of Raillore and that Clockup VN of Kenzen Public Service is releasing soon (like the nearest ever date on a few months after this).
So yeah, that's all.
It's time for a general thread! This month's topic is about the licensing company, MangaGamer.
MangaGamer is one of the oldest visual novel translation companies, with their first official release Which girl should I choose? releasing way back in July 2008 (they've lost the license since then). They've since become one of the most known in the VN Community for releasing almost all their eroge with no mosaics, as well as starting the trend of having consistent project updates through social media. They aren't without controversy, as they had payment processor issues for a bit, had that stint with Arunaru making a statement about them, and a certain line in The House of Fata Morgana that some people complained about (far after it released).

Not really sure what flair to put this under....
So unfortunately I got covid for the second time and this time, I'm actually really sick, so gonna be home for at least 5 days. Just finishing up Cafe Stella, Meteor world actor badge and Dagger & Uchikano - Girlfriend.I see the sale but Euphoria isn't included on them discounts. Shame because bullying Rika is like the best part of the game, actually it's the interactions with Nemu but that's another story for another day.
So I don't have the budget this week for Euphoria, but I do want something new to read, so asking for recommendations. I prefer something light hearted, funny or an decent drama and/or action. Also something decently long. Budget is $25 but we can do at most $30.
P.S. would really prefer to stay away from something like Euphoria, just because I love the game doesn't me I love the subject matter in it lol.
