I sent an email a while back (on 9/27/13) asking if I could offer thoughts on a character in Eastern Starlight Romance but I didn't get a reply. Should I send it again?

Graph, are you still going to wait on an English patch for GSTY despite the fact that the one running for over a year has made basically no progress?
Well, I might as well take the plunge just to see how they handled the new characters' abilities in a SRW setting. Though even without doujin games, there's already more games than I've got time to play. A lot of PS3 RPGs have had their translations finished up in the past couple of years, so I've been playing some major catch-up. (Been working through Atelier Totori lately)

Did you manage to pick up Yukari and Suika in Sengoku Gensokyo? (Or for that matter, get the bonus story with Alice/Marisa/Patchouli?)
All of the above! Though I got Suika in the second run, and I don't think I finished with the True Ending or whatever it was called. I remember finding the MAP sidestory kind of interesting, though I can't recall exact what it was about at the moment.

Have you played Genius of Sappheiros then? (I found Touhou Labyrinth not really all that grindy outside of Youmu, Yukari, Rinnosuke and the postgame. Gave up on postgame.) What point in Laby became too grindy?
Haven't played GoS. I got to somewhere in the Floor 16-18 range in Labyrinth, I think. So it was probably Yukari or Rinnosuke up next.

What did you guys think of HM and DDC, anyway?

I haven't tried DDC. As for Hopeless Masquerade, I'm pretty bad at fighting games so I had tons of trouble making combos connect because everyone's so floaty... not to mention just about every character has their own custom gimmick connected to a little display at the bottom! I got the feeling it wasn't for a beginner like me. The animation's quite fun to watch though. And Hata no Kokoro's one of my favorites out of the recent characters.

I'm not sure if it's been asked if you have favourite Touhous? If yes, then say so and I'll reread the thread again. I suspect it has been.
Well, opinions do change over the years, and people do pick up new favorites! And it's been over 2 years since that was last asked I believe. That said, I'm sticking with Utsuho. Some runner-ups include Sakuya, Sanae, Satori and Alice.

Oh, what do you think of Mystical Power Plant?

We'll be making a post soon, but the short answer is 'slower then we'd like, with significant progress still.'

I guess he meant a post on the blog. But uh, yeah, we haven't done one of those in over a year now, since Demo 3.0. There's still been some progress, although it's been particularly slow in recent months. Currently I'm the last one to have posted progress within our dev team, and that was about 3 weeks ago.

I believe for a while we've had a pretty clear plan of what needs to be done to finish the game. Iced/Talon = write the rest of the days on the story plan, me = transfer the scripts to code and look into more Renpy customizations/features, Graph = draw the rest of the CGs and code in battle effects. We've drawn up a pretty long story though, definitely on pace for over 400,000 words. It's quite possible that me and Graph may catch up with the writers early, in which case we might try some writing ourselves for some of the less-plot-essential parts of the story. We'll see though.

In any case, we do still aim to finish this (it helps that Touhou is still going strong after all these years!), and I can say for myself that I still enjoy working on this when I'm able to.

It's just good to know that you're still aiming to finish it. :)
