1. Is there a preload?
From a Steam Community Post
We've decided that RUINER won't be available for pre-load. However, in order to make your lives a little bit easier (at least at the beginning, because later, it will be much tougher, believe us), we've reduced the game file size from 21 GB to 10 GB only.
Hirasawa-sensei is a Japanese electronic music composer. The primary source of inspiration for his music can be traced back to the digital technology, the nature of man and machine, and philosophy. His most widely known work is the theme song for Berserk, a lesser known 1997 anime. He also composed the theme song for Paprika (dir. Satoshi Kon, 2006) and Millenium Actress (dir Satoshi Kon, 2002). His style can be described as techno/electro-pop. He can be found in twitter here, and his discography here
3. Why is this OT so barebones?
I wasn't planning to do this OT originally, so I quickly whip out this OT in a couple of hours after dinner. PM me if you feel any extra info should be included.
4. I'm downloading the game now, what anime should I watch in the meantime?
