In an attempt to get more people to play through their backlog of games, the lovely Anne from Chic-Pixel has organized a year-long event composed of different game genres themes each month called the Community Game-Along. Each month a new theme starts, and players can join in playing titles of that particular genre. It’s a really neat concept that not only allows you to get through your huge backlog of games, but encourages people to talk about their progress on Twitter using the various hashtags per theme! I’ve decided to join in this month, since it’s Visual Novel May and I definitely have a lot of visual novel games that I hadn’t really played.
Gift’s online shop’s sale event is about to begin real soon, so it’s time to prepare your wallets! A quick update though: Gift tweeted a few days ago that they have added a new plush to the list of items that are going to be on sale…the Mikazuki Munechika plush!
Yes, our dear jiji plush will be available for order as part of the Early Summer Campaign! I’m pretty psyched for this, as are many other fans, especially since it was unknown whether this plush was going to be an exclusive to some other event or released normally on shops like AmiAmi. It would be nice if they would release it normally, but knowing how Gift works, it would mostly likely be a webshop exclusive.
Gift tweeted early yesterday that they will be holding an online sale event called the Early Summer Campain. The event will be open online from May 15th to May 25th, where people will be able to purchase select exclusive goods from Gift. If you spend over 10,000 yen, shipping will be free, which is pretty nice. This event introduces some new items that haven’t been available before along with some re-releases, so if you’re a fan of Gift’s plushies, it’s worth it to order some of their webshop-exclusive plushies!
There are plenty of items to choose from, but these are the ones I think are worth noting!
