Future Game Plans

The way I translate games, I don't have a "current project" the majority of the time - when I find a project I want to do, I'll just do it as soon as I can.
The most information I can give about my future projects is telling you what the creators of the games I've done already are up to, as they're a likely source of new games I'll want to translate.
If an author isn't included here, it's probably because I either have no idea what they're up to, or have no plans to do more of their games in the future.

Miwashiba
Miwashiba is working on a spinoff/sequel to 1bitHeart with a "detective" focus, called 1BeatHeart.
They supposedly finished the main work around mid-December 2016, with the remainder being making the opening video.
...They might be a little caught up in sorta-making a Dangan Ronpa fangame, though.

In early June 2017, they decided to release a Chapter 2 demo, stating they expect it to take a little longer still.
However, Miwashiba has asked translators to wait for the full game before translating.
So I will translate the full game as soon as it's released, but cannot post translations of the demos.

Their next game project after 1BeatHeart is planned to be a short game called The Faceless Double.
The LiEat series is complete. Alice mare will not have a sequel, and the true ending is, according to Miwashiba, "the best happy ending in that world."

Uri
Insanity: I won't translate it, as it's not a very good game, and Uri agrees. Summary here.

Uri is hard at work on several games. The last stated plans for order of release is (after The Hanged Man) Pedestal, then Sudden Illness.

The Hanged Man is the last game in the "main" Strange Men Series, and its chronological conclusion.
However, there are two "side-stories" planned, one serious and one silly, with the initials "TSMSAKL" and "TDMBD."

Other possible future titles (which were once on her site but are now in unknown status) are Haname and One Case.

Deep-Sea Prisoner
Deep-Sea Prisoner's "in-progress" page has many projects on it, with more known about some than others.
I may choose not to translate any given project depending on its content.

Carnival Rhythm: R-18G for gore. Teased in Wadanohara's bonus room. Preview page translation here (no release estimate anymore).
General Hashasky's Great Adventure: R-18G for gore and sex. Teased at end of Mogeko Castle. Preview page translation here (no release estimate anymore).
The End of Wonderland: Teased in Wadanohara's bonus room. While the original preview gave the name in English, the list uses a Japanese title.
The Great Sinner of the Dawn: R-15. No details known yet.
The Glorious Sea Kingdom: Was once mentioned on Wadanohara's secret bonus page, so maybe a prequel.
Deep-Sea Story -The Star-Guided Boy-: No details known yet. Could involve Minami, Wadanohara and Samekichi's son.
Paradise Sunken Into Darkness: R-18. A short game that seems to involve Ivlis. Seems like it's been a priority recently.
On the Sea Below the Sea: No details known yet.
Tomorrow I Died: No details known yet. There are a few small comics under this name.
Reficul the Devil and Friends: No details known yet.
Ivleeching (?): No details known yet. Name seems to play on a derisive nickname for Ivlis.
The Gray Garden (Definitive Edition): An RPG Maker VX remake with high-res graphics, new bonuses, and other little things.

Deep-Sea Correspondence and Sandy-Beach Correspondence are manga series.
The former is said to be a mix of small comics and such (100+ chapters planned), while the latter is more like one-shot stories (around 30 chapters).
I'm thinking it's unlikely I'll translate either one.

Not all of these projects are guaranteed to be games. They may come in some other form, and depending on that form, may come in parts instead of all at once.
Lastly, DSP has said they want to make a prequel to The Gray Garden in the not-too-distant future, then a sequel to complete the trilogy.

tachi
HeadLess: Translated by adricarra here. A summary is also hidden on the Moonlight Ghost page.

tachi suffered a head injury in September 2016 and was in the hospital until late December.
He's been steadily recovering, and his general sentiment since then seems to be "I'm working toward the point of being able to make games again."
Currently, there's been no indication of what he'll be making; just prior to the injury, he cancelled a game planned for late August.

Fantasy Factory
Faraway Story: Remaining Part 2 chapters still in development.

Ramuramu is still working on Faraway Story, but there are no estimates for when it'll be updated next.
There was a stream in the middle of August 2015 showing progress, where he announced the next version would be 0.75 (so presumably, up to Chapter 5).
Full disclosure about previous updates: Part 1 (0.49) was released August 3rd, 2012. It was updated with the epilogue (0.50) on September 1st. Then it was updated up to Part 2 Chapter 3 (0.65) on July 27th, 2014.

Miscreant's Room (Sen)
After Dudley, Sen seems to be working on at least one other game. It's unclear what sort of game it is, and he alluded to some future games not being freeware.
He sometimes posts progress screens on his Twitter.

His Mad Father FAQ explicitly says there will be no direct sequel, though there is the possibility of a game in the same series.

Sky Scraper Project (Uta)
Uta is making a long open-ended RPG called Good-Bye WanderLust, but in the tweet announcing it, said to "give it 50 years."
(On their site, they say "wait 5 years" instead. Optimism!)

kouri
kouri has expressed interest in doing a new project several times in the past, but it's unclear what it would be; it may not be a game.
It is highly unlikely he would make a sequel to Ib, and he said long ago that he didn't care to make another horror game.

Fummy
Fummy doesn't have a blog or anything beyond the site for The Witch's House, and I've seen nothing indicating plans for more games.
The FAQ page also says there have been no plans made for a TWH sequel or any other games.



About Nico Game Magazine Games
A number of games, including some by creators I've translated before (Kanawo), have been released for a project called Nico Game Magazine.
However, while these games are freely available, the rules around them forbid unofficial modification, and thus translation.
Some of these games, such as Angels of Death and Kokurase, have gotten translated and released by publishers.
But at present, it seems this is the only way translations of these games will surface; I cannot do free translations of them.
