Backstage Pass Greenlight Banner by tooaya
Greetings sakefans! After several requests from you super cool people, we've decided to put Backstage Pass on Steam Greenlight! We've already been told that visual novels don't belong, and anime art is for losers, but that won't stop us from making the best game we can for you, and we'd like to share it with as many people as possible. If you (or a friend) has a Steam account, please vote us up:

Backstage Pass on Steam Greenlight

Even if you don't have a Steam account, please share this with your friends and be sure to stop by the page to see our shiny new trailer featuring gameplay and animation from Studio DEEN.
Jisei (Visual Novel) by sake-bento
In case you haven’t heard, a super typhoon recently passed through the Philippines. It’s kind of scary for me, because I was just in the Philippines two weeks ago in some of the cities that the super typhoon passed through.

I’d like to help all our friends and fans in the Philippines, so to that end, all the money made from sakevisual sales this week (November 9-16, 2013) will be donated via Global Giving.

For anyone who’s new here, sakevisual has a series of supernatural murder mystery games: Jisei, Kansei, and Yousei. They’ve won awards and stuff, and I’ve been told the characters in it are sexy, so surely that’s a bonus. (Also, the art’s really nice and they’re fully voiced.)

If you’re strapped for cash, here’s a 15% off code: CKTE00028

It works on any or all of the games.
Jisei - The First Case - $10
Kansei - The Second Turn - $15
Yousei - The Third Investigation - $15

If you’d rather just donate directly, please check out Global Giving.

I hear it's pretty good, so give it a spin. ^_-

Yosh! The full version of Yousei is now available! For those of you who pre-ordered, the original confirmation email should have a link in it. It will lead you to the most recent version of Yousei.
