Firstly we would like to thank all of you for your patience with us and apologize for taking so long to formally address this topic. We had been hoping to resolve the situation or at least obtain some additional information from Valve beyond what has been already circulating publicly via third parties before making a statement, but we are unfortunately still quite empty-handed despite several attempts on our end.
Much of this will not be news to those of you who have been following the situation closely, but to clarify things and dispel some of the rumors that have been circulating, this is what we know: A Kiss for the Petals: Maidens of Michael was removed from the Steam storefront by Valve staff, we believe in response to a malicious and patently false user report. We do not know if or when the game will return to the platform at this time; it is very much out of our hands. That said, Maidens of Michael is currently and will continue to be available from our storefront. The game’s removal was not the fault of any of the game’s localization staff and no one has been fired or punished as a result.
We will keep you all updated with any information we do have as we become apprised of it. Thank you again for your continued patience and understanding; we assure you we are just as frustrated as you are about this situation.
With Umineko: Golden Fantasia‘s release tomorrow, we wanted to take a moment to talk about something exciting for our first ever fighting game release–rollback netplay. Continue reading
Hello everyone, and welcome to the game! We’ve put this together both to give players a general reference material to the game’s core mechanics, as well as provide new players with an introduction to the fundamentals. While you’re welcome to choose a team before reading, you may want to read this first to help inform your decision. So, without further ado, let’s get started! Continue reading
Hey everyone. As some of you may have heard, The House in Fata Morgana was released on the 3DS in Japan by FuRyu a couple days ago. For this new edition of the game, Novectacle completely remade the Maid’s sprites, and we’re bringing those updated graphics to the PC release for you today. Here’s a quick sample of how the new sprites look compared to the original: Continue reading
Hey, everyone. We’ve got a little surprise for you today to celebrate the ongoing summer sale. Our friends at Novectacle have been hard at work behind the scenes polishing and enhancing The House in Fata Morgana, and we’re bringing you the first fruits of their ongoing efforts today.
The update includes minor script modifications, adjustments to Mell’s and Pauline’s sprites, and a complete overhaul of the sound effects. More than 75% of the game’s SFX have been replaced with higher quality effects, and the total number of unique SFX has been increased almost 2.5x, giving the game a much richer, more immersive soundscape.
The version 1.1 update is live on both Steam and the MangaGamer website right now. However, due to the scale of the update, you will have to redownload the game from your account page if you purchased it from the MangaGamer store. Steam customers should have the update automatically applied for them.
