Progress Update #1

Happy Tuesday.

It’s been exactly 2 months since work started on our next VN and I’d say I’m doing good. 13.6% of the game has been translated and 80% of the UI edited. The speed at which I’m able to translate has increased by 1.5 times compared to when I started on Houkago last year, although I think the fact that the scenes in the new game are much longer contributes to it. I have to admit that I miss the writing and gameplay of HC as it was a lot more casual in tone, however, it is a nice change of pace to work on more story-connected scenes going on for 500-800 lines as opposed to one-off 200-line scenes.

Anyways, on to the main topic, we’re looking for more people to join the team. At this current stage, more help from a Sub-editor/QC would be much appreciated. Finding a TLCer is less of a priority, but we’re always open if anyone has the time and knowledge to assist me in making translation choices.

No experience is required, only motivation. There is a small test so I can gauge your abilities (editing no more than 300 lines on another game). If you are worried that the new game isn’t for you, we can have a chat and I’ll describe the themes of the story and you can use that as a deciding factor. However, I cannot reveal the title unless you pass the test.

Sub-editor/QC – Native/near-native English speaker. Japanese knowledge is not required. Mostly checking the main editor’s work for typos and grammar mistakes.
TLC – Fluent English & Japanese speaker, don’t need to be native in either.

Please DM me on Discord if you’re interested in being a part of our team. (PoisonPyte#1449)
