Hey guys, here’s some info about the Steam release…

Epic Battle Fantasy 5 will cost $15 on Steam. The release date is "Late 2018". The soundtrack will be sold separately, probably for $5. It’s DLC, so you can’t buy it on Steam without the game, but you can get it directly from Phyrnna for a little more.

Everyone who owns EBF4 on Steam will get a 20% discount coupon for EBF5. I think Valve sets this up so that coupons are sent out just after launch. This works better for me than a launch discount, because it lets me notify 200,000 Steam users at once. Should make for a decent marketting campaign to get the ball rolling.

Once the coupons expire after a month, I’ll release a Steam bundle of EBF4, EBF5, and Bullet Heaven 2. This bundle gives you 20% off if you “complete the set”. If you only own EBF4, for example, you can buy the other 2 games together for 20% off. This will be a permanent deal going forward, and it works in conjunction with other discounts. It’s basically a scam to make people buy BH2.

Patrons who have given me at least $15 will get Steam keys a few days before official release, so they can double check that everything is working correctly.

The free web version will be released once I’ve had a break from the Steam release. But the beta will most likely stay up on this website until then anyway. Saves between all versions will be compatible, and easily transferable with the save backup feature. Saves from the beta may have a few minor problems – such as permanently missing an equip or two if you save in the wrong place.

"It’s basically a scam to make people buy BH2." At least you are honest. Not an uncommon tactic though. "Buy two and get one for free!" deals exist to get people to spend more money when they really only wanted one from the start. Being Steam that mindset only get ramp up even higher.

I think you should release the web version with pc version, it is not possible to keep your game from pirates it will get stolen before launched, just like FF15 and TW Warhammer 2. Even worse, it could get rip-off copy and no possible way to stop that.

Like you said, there's no way to stop piracy.

You have to wait because the game's not finished.

he's already released 3 games on steam; and just like with any other game, pirates don't make a big dent since they weren't going to pay anyway

15 dollar, eh? That's pretty nice. But still, it's crazy we are alerdy near the release date. It still seem like yesterday when you announced ebf5. ...Time flies way too fast.
