Product Update - Valve

  • Selecting the "Simplify barrels/torches" option in custom.exe no longer causes the game to spit a few errors on startup.
  • The display error with the Survival Dungeon floor counter has been corrected.
  • The late-game magics that summon the elemental spirits now all have correct spell descriptions.
  • Using the Return to Title option in windowed mode during plot events now properly terminates the event.
  • Mackerels in the Emperor-Bug's Tomb have had a bug fixed and no longer make the fishing minigame unplayable if you fail to catch them on the first pull.
  • The song list in Jukebox Mode is now properly in English.
  • The few typos in plot events and in the post-game event listing have been corrected.
Product Release - Valve
Chantelise: A Tale of Two Sisters is now available on Steam! To commemorate its release, the game will be available at 10% off now through August 4th.

Chantelise is a whimsical Action-RPG brought to you from the creators of the renowned Recettear ~ An Item Shop's Tale. Search for treasures, fight challenging bosses, and delve deep into dungeons for loot and hours after hours of gameplay. There is fishing! Yes - fishing with collectible fish!

Five years ago, a witch's curse beneath the red moon turned Chante into a fairy. Now she and her sister Elise search for a way to transform her back into a human, and in their travels they come across a particular town, which is home to a number of nearby ruins, as well as a peculiar shopkeeper named Aira, and a strange, mercurial fortune-teller who calls herself Elma. Could this place hold the key to returning Chante to normal? Or will it lead to more answers than our two sisters ever wanted to know?...

I’ve spent a few hours nuzzling up to Chantelise, the next Westernised translation/do-over of a Japanese indie title from noble Recettear chaps Carpe Fulgur. Because I appear to be pretty terrible at the game, a full Wot I Think is probably some days off. Meantime though, here’s some early impressions ahead of the release on Friday.>

It strongly evokes Recettear while being absolutely nothing like it. Obviously much of that has to do with the love it/hate it/be a grown up and not be too fussed either way art style, but even beyond that a confluence of tone (via Carpe Fulgur’s extensive and breezily charismatic rewrite of the dialogue), references (many items bear similar if not the same names) and interface design paints this as a clear companion piece.
