Requoting something I posted on tohnochanMONTHS ago

I've played this game last friday night (installed finally @ 9 pm, stopped at saturday 1:30 am) and saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.

Holy shit this VN is depressing as fuck as you all know. Does anyone know if the spin-off novels and other related stuff has been released in English or translated? The universe needs to be expanded upon. Especially the Junker's experience as a refugee. Or was he a child soldier? It wasn't shown exactly.

Currently trying to dig up the link to a digital copy. According to the internet (in general), the game has been for sale since 2004 from the Kinetic Novel website, www.kineticnovel.jp/ in digital format. These instructions are horribly out of date so could anyone help in pointing me in the right direction here?

Dunno where to get it but.

Short but so very incredibly Key-worthy.

I got a copy through torrent. Google shows some results but only a few seeds and here is possibly the best one and may have been where I got my copy* . Anyway, if you're looking for an original copy, can't help you. Regarding the game, I just got this to make my sister cry tongue
I think I did something last night...

Well played, old chap!
You Bastard! I'm pretty sure inflicting Key V Ns on people comes under the 'Emotional Torture' provisions of the Geneva Convention.
Did I ever tell you...the definition of insanity?
well... A certain site has an archive visual novels. Admin there is really nice. But downloads are fileserve and filesonic only. MU is rare there. erogedownload.com

Guys, I have a favor to ask of you.

I'm cosplaying as the Junker at a local convention this weekend, and as the individual cosplay contest rules state, I must provide a full-body picture of the character being cosplayed.

We all know that there's no official art of the Junker, and the one picture I have of him (a fan-made one) is just a mugshot. So can anyone provide a full-body pic of him?

Wait, how do you even know how he looks like?

[up]A friend gave me a link to the aforementioned mugshot of the Junker. He looks like a soldier, wears a pair of goggles, and also has a raincoat draped on him.

Planetarian gets an official English release... for iOS.

[up]Holy crap I'm gonna get this right away. Maybe some of Key's other stuff (and hopefully other visual novels in general) will be brought over too!

And I got it! However, I'm doing the Steins;Gate VN right now (although I'm almost done with it), and there's some anime I want to watch after I finish that, so I may not get around to Planetarian for a little while

I bought it, read it and finished it.

It's quite good. The ending balances despair and hope quite well. I am an optimist so perhaps the ending seemed happier to me.

Conceivably that guy could end up just carrying the memory card around for the rest of his life but considering how important it seems to him I very much doubt nothing will come of it. If anything he has a goal now.

I was quite impressed. It really took me there. I'm glad for the translation.

Well, I finished Steins;Gate (Managed to get the True Ending too!), so now I'm gonna finished my watches of Azumanga Daioh and Panty And Stocking, which shouldn't take me more than a few days, and then I'll get onto Planetarian!

I remember playing this. It's the only thing that got me to descend into Inelegant Blubbering.
Everyone is a little bit insane. It makes the world so much more interesting!

Huh, iOS or not, I'm surprised Key actually allowed official English release for their stuff...

@Ultimately Subjective: Did you listen to the drama CDs? There's one that covers Junker's later life...it's the 3rd one, and has fan translation...

...still wish for official PC release though...

[up] Do I... Want to listen to it?

This was a kind of moving story really. But I'm not sure I'd actually like to cry ;_;

For the record it gets my "worth listening to" stamp. It may even be less tragic than Planetarian itself.

How strange to introduce a robot with a memory card slot and the idea of putting the memory card in the slot, only to not actually do it though.

I suppose if the point is that the stars are hope and there are people spreading the word about the stars it's actually pretty positive like that.

That's cool

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
