why did you cancel Skycurser ?

Skycurser-EXA would be a cool thing.

Good question. As I recall, cashflow and poor location test impressions. Then it came out and the hardware was a bit shonky so I've never been tempted. The pixel art looks great but the gameplay less so. I believe it was the developer's first shmup and it shows. Good on them for getting it out there though.

The likes of Griffin and NG DEV were never in a position to provide full Japanese distribution and entice developers like Cave onboard. EXA is a whole different animal. I don't expect A&B to be Cave tier but I'm far more excited to try it than anything since SDOJ.

You can do chargebacks for several reasons if you were the buyer. Item not as described, item not received, etc. I've done them many times (with Visa/Mastercard), and always got my money back. Maybe your credit card company is different, though.
Different cards have different chargeback policies. It may be that their card doesn't have a good chareback policy (or any). This is common on things like debit cards that support Visa/MC transactions, or entry-level credit cards.

I'd also be careful with chargebacks when using PayPal - they don't like it when you do that. Better to submit a dispute first.

No email on my end.

It's a shame, MAGFest just ended yesterday and I really wanted to have A&B there for people to play. I doubt there will be as much hype for it next year.

A quote from Shou on Arcade Heroes:
Aka & Blue is beginning to ship this week. Customers are receiving an upgraded version that’s not out yet in Japan, which includes some bug fixes and game improvements.
Happy days.

Lubing up for that Parcelforce bill.

I see you mentioned MAGfest, are you in the USA? Only thing I can assume at this point is EU orders are going out now.

Well, actually it is a EU regulation, but only Germany seems to enforce it yet. Every item that is brought into the EU ( new and sold by a merchant, so none private) has to carry a CE mark. When this regulation started, German customs gave a lot of people a hard time with retro hardware, but these days they have understood that this is only for new items and for b2b and b2c.

Exa being new and being sold as b2c could cause problems, I would think.

There was a debate if you had the right as a private user to import something without a CE sign, that could of course kill you, but depending on the customs you end up with might not help you and you will face delay and bureaucracy.
