Somehow reading this news has made me very happy. Now I can finally start playing the first Sora no Kiseki without going insane at.... a cliffhanger or so ending (which.... I've always suspected it has? Maybe I've been mistaken all this while?).

Everyone loves more TitS!
My only disappoint is that my PSP FC save is now moot. I had wanted to replay FC on Nightmare before SC, netting me both Estelle & Joshua's final weapons, but now with my limited RL time I might not get to do that on Steam.
"Ambition is the willingness to kill the things you love and eat them to stay alive."
I'm a bit sad that save compatibility might be an issue between PSP and Steam, but then again, I pretty much need two more playthroughs of FC to get a "complete" file. Perfect excuse to justify getting the Steam version of FC as well (I'm not overly fond of playing on handhelds).
I have a feeling that this might be because Steam is running in the background though. I don't know if achievements and the likes work if I run the game without Steam, so I have to look into that.
I think Unsavory always had the same problem. I imagine you are right about it being steam in the background causing it. Your not going to be able to run the games without steam though. Virtually all steam released games require it to be running in the background.
I know some will run independently of steam. That's why I said virtually all, not all. However those games are extremely uncommon. Unless steam has removed this requirement recently most will run steam if you double click the exe.
Wahoo! Now I can finish playing it! I put the PSP version down for awhile in hopes of a PC release. Wow, what a week it's been so far. Mighty no. 9, Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero, and now not one, but two Sora no Kiseki games released for PC! : )
Hmmm, digital-only or nothing. I'll take digital-only.
However, question for Tom when you inevitably respond in this thread, what about the chance of a physical release ala Kickstarter? I gotta decide if I should buy the Jp versions of TitS 2 & 3 for PSP so I feel atleast a little more complete. And isn't there a PS3 version? Any chance of that coming over. I think I know the answers, but I thought I'd ask all the same.
One thing with Steam that can cause easy lag is if you leave the main Steam window open while a game is running. That main window loves to eat up CPU. It's generally pretty lightweight without it, but if you're still getting lag, disabling the overlay (turning off "Enable Steam Community In-Game" in the game's properties) can help. Steam is usually -not- a contributor to lag other than the main window, though. But if you close the main window and disable the overlay it's nearly identical to running it without Steam entirely.
