Dear Bloody Chronicles Community,
We finished our beta testing period and feedback was very positive regarding the story, graphics, music etc.
However, beta testers pointed out that the number of grammar mistakes on the English version was too high (luckily for us, both the Japanese and Chinese versions are unaffected).
This happened despite having three different native English speakers translating and proofreading our script from Japanese.
We could easily fix them in our first update when we were talking about a dozen of something wrong.
Unfortunately, the amount of lines that need to be fixed is much higher.
Correcting hundreds of lines and re-recording them takes time.
We faced a dilemma because we wanted to release Bloody Chronicles according to our announced launch date but at the same time, we don't want to offer a game that does not meet our own high-quality standards.
What does that mean for the english Version?
The fact that we have to deal with several online stores (especially Steam) further complicate matters because release dates can't be easily changed.
In the end, after discussing the different options, we decided to release the game for you as Early Access version, so you can play it right now in its current state and see the improvements as we update them, until the definitive release on Q1 2019.
This Early Access version will have a 20% discount over the final retail price.
The backers will receive their digital keys for the main game as well as the DLC episodes (IF Mode, Christmas, Beach episodes) as soon as they're available, so those who supported us on Kickstarter will get a lot of extra content.
We are deeply sorry for this issues and we hope that this solution will be the best for everyone.
Thanks again to everyone of our wonderful community for your support, if you have any questions, please contact us.
Your "Igrasil Studio Team"
