Am I the only one who thinks it's a bit silly to have to pay more for a version of the game with sound? Also, why no PC release? Some people don't like playing games all the time on their smartphone.

*gets really excited because of the announcement of Heart no Kuni no Alice in english*

*sees that is for mobil phones and it's not the entire game unless you pay for every route and other shits*

...I don't even know how to describe my disappointment :/

Why is the title "Alice in the Heart" and not "Alice in the Country of Hearts"?

Doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the game's translation quality...

Yeah, even though I have a smart phone I don't want to shell out almost $50 on this when the translation is something out of google.

Quinrose translated this themselves... So I can see why the grammar and wording are spotty most of the time.

Well some people do like playing in their smartphones, its more profitable this way because most western otome fans do play their otome in their smartphone so its more profitable. Also it's not the PC release because that one is the outdated version.

Downloading it onto my tablet now. I'll play the free stuff first for now, and see if it's worth buying the rest from there. I've been wanting to play this in English for awhile, so I don't want my hopes dashed yet until I give it a shot. XP

Yeah, I'm also disappointed to see that it's for smartphone release. (I don't have any smartphone because I won't be needing it for now.)

And now that I already saw the translation quality, I'm pretty sure I'd stay away from it. How can they release something that is so flawed and charge people for it? They should've attempted better localization.

Would have gotten this if it were for PC. I hate playing most games on a smartphone. I can see why many people do, but it's not for me, especially not for that price.

There are ways you can play smart phones apps on your PC just saying...

Very interesting. May play some day. I always feel otome games don't rank up with the other visual novels. I think they just get mostly ignored.

The headline had me excited, but it looks like a pretty meeeehhhh release...Whatever, I'll at least play the free parts to see if it's worth spending any money on.

Uh... That terrible translation combined with the price, I'd be better off buying the Japanese PC release and just muddling through the Japanese text on my own. Confused
