Backstage Pass
March 25 - Ayu

Update: The Backstage Pass beta has been given a content update, so if you're currently testing the beta with us, please re-download the file from your confirmation email. We are also working to get this onto Steam Early Access so that future updates will be automatic for you guys.

Important: Due to the extra content, old saves are not compatible with the new version. To delete a save file, hover your mouse over the save thumbnail (in the game) and press the 'delete' key on your keyboard.

This update includes:
-Opening video animation
-Bug fixes
-Typo fixes
-Additional scenes for each of the main four guys and the alone path
-Updated GUI
-Updated extras: Endings list and media gallery (music room/video player)

Bugs we're still chasing:
-Quickmenu still works during the scheduler portion
-CG gallery crashes on certain CGs
-Keyboard functions don't work on certain screens (like wardrobe)

Remember you can post bugs you've found here on Steam or on our official forums[sakevisual.friendhood.net]. Even if I don't respond right away, I am reading everything.

As you may have already noticed, Backstage Pass has just been Greenlit! Thank you many times over for all the votes and support! You guys have been absolutely great through all of this, and we're looking forward to being able to share this game with you.

To that end, the beta is currently available for everyone who pre-ordered.
Find out how to get beta access here[sakevisual.blogspot.com]. The current beta focuses mostly on romance, and represents about half of the final game. We don't have any Steam early access plans yet, but we will try to work something out.

Hey gang! We're very happy to announce that we're officially in the Top 50 on Greenlight now! Numbers here shift a lot, but we're set pretty comfortably in the middle range at the moment. Many thanks to all of you for voting and spreading the word. We hope we'll make it to the Top 10 by the time Valve greenlights the next batch of games, so please continue to share this with others.

The beta version is getting ever-closer to testing, so if you pre-ordered, keep an eye out for that. We'll also update you guys here once it's ready.

Also! If any of you live in the Dallas area, we will have a table at Mini A-KON in Denton this Saturday. It's a free convention, and a whole lot of fun. The voice actor for Adam will be a guest there, and the actor for Matthew says he'll do his best to stop by and say hi. More information about it here[www.a-kon.com].

First off, Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! A huge thanks to all of you for the support you've given us and this game in the past month. We've been on Greenlight for a little over a month now, so it seems right to give you an update.

-We recently passed 80% of the way to the top 100. We're all crazy excited, because it seems top 100 is actually within sight. Thank you for voting, and please share this with your friends so we can keep going!

-Beta testing for pre-orders will start within the next few weeks. While the game is not complete, it's complete enough that you'll be able to enjoy the story, and we're looking forward to your feedback so we can make it even better.

-If you haven't read it in the forum yet, here are two confirmations:
1.) Pre-ordering the game WILL net you a free Steam code if it winds up on this site.
2.) There are several hidden routes including one GxG route.

Again, many thanks to all of you for supporting us. We can't wait to get this game out for everyone to enjoy!
