I stumbled about this very interesting interview initiated by Siliconera with Norihisa Kochiwa who oversees all of development at Idea Factory including the Otomate label.

I didn’t have the chance to post about this before, but since I just found out something that distressed me (though I knew it was unavoidable), I just HAVE to say it! Please. PLEASE! Support Idea Factory International and Amnesia through legal means. The game got released only a couple of days ago in USA, Europe and Australia (not sure if worldwide) on both PS Vita console and PC via Steam and it already got patches and cracks for ILLEGAL download. I realize that you can’t possibly have money for everything that you might be interested in, being a gamer or into the anime/manga community is a quite expensive hobby sometimes, BUT at least buy and support what you LIKE! Set your priorities straight! And the feeling with which I’m trying to convey this to you is doubled when being aware that otome games have an uncertain future in the West! Pirating them is the LEAST that the western otoge industry needs and it could even KILL IT! Fortunately the PS Vita was not yet hacked (yet…), but Ify put their faith into us and gambled to bring Amnesia to the PC for those poor unfortunate souls that still do not own a PS Vita. You could at least download it to try it out and see if you like it, but if you like it then BUY IT. I can’t emphasize more how important this is ! It’s not available in your country? Fine. If it’s not available there’s nothing you can do. But the “I don’t have money.” excuse does not justify it if you set your priorities straight! Save up! Every $$$ counts! And better, wait for a sale. Amnesia is already being sold at 40% less till today! You can’t right now? Save for the next sale! There will definitely be more in the future! Also, if you want to possibly see the sequels Amnesia Later and Amnesia Crowd being brought to the West, then it’s even more of a reason to BUY Amnesia: Memories!
Don’t make Orion cry!
