No need to feel bad in the least, it is a very good question . Unforutanely I am still figuring out the exact cost, due to the bonus items involved. I really won't know until everything is in my hands and ready to go, but my goal is to keep it as reasonable as possible.

Fair enough. Thank you for being candid about it. (:

If/when in future a S&RII will be developed, would you be interested in following the development to give opinions (from your posts I think to understand you are a fan of '80-'90 style RPG games)? I can't promise nothing about, any decision does not depend to me, just wondering if you would like your name being proposed.

You surmise correctly sir. I would be honored.

Thank you so much!

I really think Beau should be the one crdited for all the awesome work he did and all the risks he toke with this project.

Being "in the ones involved" (and being proud about it), your feedback is extremely appreciated, of course.

And being designer and (hard to believe for me) coder of the game, I'm glad if you are happy with playing the game itself too.

If anything is unclear in the game mechanics, just ask in the (a bit chaotic, sorry) development thread, I'll be happy to answer.

Cheers!

And we'll start a game play thread soon, but for now just know that you must enter the attack combos sequentially. So for the first enemy it is UP, release, A release. It's not too tricky, but there's a slight learning curve.

Nice update. Pretty exciting time for you guys. Congrats on making it this far and I look forward to the RE and many other future releases. The LE were well done and very unique as well. Overall, this was a great project and well done. Way to jump out of the gate running!

Okay, so what you are saying is whoever won a copy from the auction has the right to claim the number first before anyone else in 5-7? Example. winner of #3 LE gets to request #3 first even if someone who didn't win LE #3 post first.

The NA Edition numbering scheme is separate from everything else. I went back and forth a lot on this, trying to find the best and fairest way, but in the end it looks like the NA Edition is going to have to be its own separate entity. Otherwise, the first thirty would already be reserved, and other than the auction winners, the recipients do not know what number they will receive (still waiting on better labels for those; auction LE holders will be sent new ones as well). Nor did I want to presume that they would all be interested.

I've got a little article to write on the choices I've made concerning editions, but I'll keep it short for now. Basically, though the LE sold first, it is not the main SGP edition of any game. It is something that I did for fun, and because I wanted to. LEs may not accompany all future games, or may come after the other editions, but the NA will be consistent across all games (with some possible exceptions of course; gotta stay creative), and that is what the reservation system will be based on. To reserve based on LE would also not make sense when it came time for the next LE (boxes are done!), since those will be sold and given in various ways. Not all will be offered publicly, and some may not be put up for sale at all.

This may not be the most popular decision, but it is one of the many tough decisions that has gone into the project. My advice: if there is a number you want, or something that you would like to match to an LE, be there at midnight tomorrow.

Wow, what a response. Thanks for the explanation.
Hope I am fast enough to get my number or lower.
