Poor Kotaro, he clearly wants to get the chance to make the game happen. I wish him the best.

Delightful tale old chap.
Anything more to add about the topic at hand or do you prefer to simply write unrelated asinine one-liners?

No need to act like an Internet warrior. I only did comment that can be misinterpreted in its tone.

(I'd wager he's not the sole holder of the IP).

Silly question; because I honestly don't know the 'scale of authority' even remotely well when it comes to these things.

If he doesn't have enough power/ownership to start a KS on his own; why does he have the power to go 'Yeah, random dude on FB, I'll take your $5M and we'll start the game'?

It's practically the same thing only with greater troll potential and more security risks.

What's the security risk? if a millionaire wants to donate money to make it happen, I'm sure the company he works for would be thrilled to draw up a contract for him that basically says that the money is a donation towards the funding of the game and that they have no rights regarding the game that is made.

Think security risk was the wrong word. Hmm...I think what I'm trying to say is KS vs 'random FB dude' is mismatched on the scale of 'reputable transactions' that you'd allow someone to perform with limited authority.

Let me try and break this down into an example:

-I own a business.
-I allow two employees to seek ways to fund our new project.
-Employee A comes back, shows me the KS website. KS has been in operation for a long time, has a good reputation, is trust worthy, and offers protections for the people involved.
-Employee B comes back and tells me Mr. Mac Scruffles of Scandinavia contacted him on Facebook offering a check of $5M to our project.
-Both Employees have equal 'trust' value and neither have failed me prior.

I'm always going to go with Employee A.

'Random generous benefactor on Facebook' is too much like 'I'm an Arabian Prince and I need you to send me $1000 to cash this huge check, of which you'll get half.'

Sure, it might be a real prince. But odds are you're just wasting your time believing it to be true. The amount of credibility/weight in a company you'd need to engage in negotiations over such a 'risk' is far greater than what you'd need to start a KickStarter, I believe.

I thought the whole reason he ended VLR on a cliffhanger was because he knew he would be able to make a third part.

Extremely disappointing news, but I was already disappointed when he explained how upper management was having him make VLR to appeal to a broader audience.  Apparently the popularity of Danganronpa has to do with this as well.

Kotaro Uchikoshi posted this on his twitter saying "I was so moved I almost cried. Thank you very much!"

Well that's disappointing.

Does VLR end on a cliff hanger or something?

It doesn't make me want to rush to play it either.

It's Shenmue III all over again.

What makes me sad is when bad games sell in high quantities and rare gems like Zero Escape can't find any love within their company despite a strong (yet unfortunately small) fanbase.

I find it amusing that a series in a genre that was almost non-existent in western releases until about 3 years ago is somehow doing better in the west than it is in Japan.
