Want a coupon for $5 off the price of The Royal Trap? Here's how to get one...


livejournal, blogger, twitter, tumblr, WHATEVER. Talk about the game!

Facebook works if it's publicly visible on your wall but it's getting hard to link to facebook posts these days. Forums are okay if you're allowed to post this sort of thing there (don't annoy people by spamming, pls) and it's a forum that doesn't already have official topics. Posting about the game on the game's own forum doesn't count as spreading the word. :)

Post a link to the game page and say something about it. Post a screenshot. Talk about the characters. Whatever you like. You can even say you're just posting it to get a discount, that's fine.

Post something, then come here and post a link to whatever you posted so that I can see it, and I'll PM you a discount code.

I just have two questions.

1. Does the coupon code come with an expiration date?
2. Does this offer come with an expiration date?

I was just wondering because I'm waiting until March 1st to either post about the game or buy it.

Neither is planned to expire at this point in time - I can't say never, but certainly waiting until March wouldn't be any problem.

I posted a short "review" of the game on my site. It's available in English and German:


No need to send me a discount code, though. I already bought the game and it was awesome! :)

Aw dang, too late! I suppose you're unable to process $5 refunds? Never mind, not worth the bother to you or me - but I'll make sure Dan and the choicescript gang know this has come out anyway.

I shared the game on my facebook page. It's public and 'highlighted!' Hopefully that link will work...

I posted a first impressions based on playing through the demo on my blog here: http://adventuresinvanaheim.wordpress.c ... trap-demo/

and also posted to my facebook feed, I don't think anyone reads it, but I plug Hanako Games whenever there's an opportunity to plug.

I gotta' say, this VN is top notch.

by plotatochips I mentioned The Royal Trap on my tumblr! I will probably write an actual review once I play the full game. By the way, I would love to acquire a disc of this game at some point. Will you be producing hard copies in the near future?

There will be hard copies eventually but probably not super-soon... I usually aim to have new discs ready for Fanime because that's where we sell the bulk of them. (Also, while we produce most of the pieces ourselves, the case inserts get professionally printed and take a while to be delivered.)

Also, I have an Experimental Idea in mind for something to do with the CD version of this particular game, but it's going to involve a good bit of work and recoding so I don't want to get into it just yet when I have so many other things going on.
