DLsite localization campaign


DLsite English G-rated side is celebrating a one year anniversary and for that occasion will localize one item from their catalogue into English. The item will be chosen by fan request and it's your job to ensure that it doesn't suck.

The key points of this campaign are these:

1. The duration of the campaign is from May 24th to June 24th.
2. To participate you have to have a DLsite English account.
3. Send a letter to campaign201205@dlsite.com with subject "Anniversary Campaign" and list those things:
a) Your e-mail address you used to sign up for DLsite account.
b) Your name.
c) Choose up to three products you want to see localized and list their names.
d) List their work numbers.
4. The products must be available on DLsite English side and must be in Japanese. Products that are only on DLsite Japan side do not participate in the draw.
5. Any item is eligible and that means games, manga and anime episodes. Of course I and those of you that read this blog are only interested in visual novels, so let's not let some manga get the localization.
6. Both adult and all ages products can participate (I asked that of DLsite staff as the original wording is not very clear).
7. Only one letter can be sent. If you send more, only the last one will count so list all the titles you fancy outright.
8. Out of all the letters sent, 20 persons will randomly win 1000 DLsite points even if none of their titles won.
9. DLsite English mostly has only doujin stuff, so don't expect big commercial games when you browse.
10. If the creators of the wining title do not agree to the localization, the second place will be picked, after that the third and etc.

[Update 2012-07-08] So, the campaign is over and the winner is... Lonely Yuri aka Kidoku no Kiku Yuri. While I love yuri just like every healthy male, there are a few things that bother me. First of all the art is kinda weird and secondly its not an eroge.

Oh, well, I cannot dis the VN just because of that without playing it. I reserve my opinion after it is released.
