The beta test session for Chapter 2 of Touhou Mecha has started. Our thanks go out to everyone who applied! If things go smoothly, I think we’ll be releasing this one around the end of the week.

Chapter 2 beta testing

Hello all, Graph here! I’d like to get the ball rolling for Chapter 2 of Touhou Mecha now. There’s actually 2 things I wanted to get done this time around.

One is the beta test, as you’ve guessed. If you’re interested in beta testing Chapter 2, send an e-mail to Aside from your intention to beta test, it would be good to mention when you can get started. I’ve estimated Chapter 2 to be about a 1 hour read, about like Chapter 1. The new TM Database articles take… maybe 30 minutes. It really depends on your reading speed!

The other thing was mentioned in Chapter 1′s installment of Hellcat Corner: A Q&A section for Chapter 2′s Hellcat Corner! You send us questions, and the answers for a select few appear in the upcoming Hellcat Corner skit! We’ll give preference to questions related to the world of Touhou Mecha or the creation of the VN, but we may include a question on a random topic as well. You can address questions to DSD, or to the girls of Touhou Mecha. Try to keep it PG-13 please!

You can send those questions to If you’re submitting a beta test application, you can also include your question with the application. Be sure to mention if you’re fine with seeing your question featured on Hellcat Corner! If your question doesn’t get selected, you can submit it to this topic afterwards, where you’ll be pretty much guaranteed an answer.

Please submit your applications and questions by the end of Wednesday, September 25. The betas will be distributed later that week, after we’ve looked through the applications and finished that Hellcat Corner skit. I’m going to be drawing until pretty much the last minute, so I’ll see you guys then!

EDIT: By the way, if you gave feedback in the beta testing period in any of DSD’s previous releases, you get a free pass! Just send us an e-mail mentioning your forum account name and which project you participated in, and your spot is guaranteed. It’s good to have new perspectives though, so we’re still taking newcomers!

EDIT2: The names of the readers who submit questions to the Q&A section may be shown in Hellcat Corner, if the reader chooses. If submitting questions for the Q&A section, let us know what name you’d like to use, or if you’d prefer to stay anonymous.
