The devs behind Baldr Sky are shutting down and all of their games are going to be delisted. This is quite a shame and I would like help in compiling files for a torrent of all their games including any necessary patches as some games like Baldr Sky got censored by ((( Sekai Project ))). I've downloaded the community patch that's still up however the uncensored video files are missing.

Text of the linked article:
>Giga, the adult-oriented sub-brand of Entergram (itself a subsidiary of TGL Inc.) announced on November 22nd that the studio will be shutting down as of March 31st, 2023 and taking decades of visual novel and action-oriented mecha titles off of the market. The team’s Google translated statement follows:

>    Dear customers, Thank you very much for your patronage of “Giga” brand products. As of March 31, 2023 (Friday), product development and sales of the “Giga” brand will be discontinued. We sincerely apologize for the sudden notice to our customers. In addition, regarding the support work for each game software, the service will be terminated on the same day.

>    Released in 1993, “VG We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the support and patronage of many customers over the long 30 years since ~Variable Geo~.  ★Future schedule is as follows.

>For Western audiences, Giga’s titles have been few and far between with 2019’s Baldr Sky being the most recent and readily available on Steam and GOG.com. Many others are available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Vita in Japan as well as on PC from Giga and various Japan-focused digital stores. As most of Giga’s releases on consoles are handled by parent brand Entergram, and the Western releases by Sekai Project,  it’s uncertain if they’re also at risk of being delisted or if we’re just talking about the racier PC stuff sold by Giga themselves.

>On top of this uncertainty, I am extremely out of my depth in regards to visual novels so I’ll leave it with a few links. Baldr Sky is currently available on Steam and on a 50% off sale at GOG.com. It hasn’t been confirmed but these versions are expected to be delisted on or shortly after the March 2023 deadline. You can browse all of Giga’s releases on their site and get more links to digital and physical purchases through their page at the Visual Novel Database.

>Thanks to Auster for submitting the news. I’ve added the major March 31st date to the Watch List calendar for now.

Visual novel or otherwise, it would be criminal to let an entire developer's catalog fall off the face of the earth. Furthermore, here is gameplay of Baldr Sky

Ah, before I forget here's a list of games they have developed. If anyone knows where to find files please let me know!

1. About the Baldr Sky patch project
We are SHADOWWOLF, a group of dedicated fans such as yourself.
After learning that the English release of Baldr Sky would cut out the 
adult content, we organized to create a fully uncut version of the game. 
Though it's taken several months of translation and hard work from our 
members, we've created a set of drop-in replacement files for game 
scripts, files and images most likely to be targeted by game cuts.
The patch is now live. You can apply the patch via download links
provided below. A separate download for movie files is available because
the changes are minor and the files are much larger. See the bottom of 
this page for instructions on how to apply the patch.
We thank you all for your generous support. Please enjoy Baldr Sky.
This patch is intended to be applied to the English Steam version. 
You can obtain a copy of the game via Steam at the address:
Note: Applying the patch after reaching Rain Chapter 7 can cause some side 
effects (or crashes) related to the Event Jump feature. We recommend applying 
the patch prior to starting a new game, or shortly thereafter.
* Adult Patch 1.01 *
Patch notes available below. Download size 100Mb.
* Unmodified Ending Credits *
The ending movies have brief spots where character nipples are shown and blurred
out. Since the files are rather large (1.8Gb) they are provided here as an 
optional second download.
Notice: Our MEGA account has been suspended due to false DMCA claims by a
troll by the name of Guapler. Users on the steam forums have been mirroring
downloads so that would be a good place to check while we work to restore
download links (linking them from this post would get them hit by DMCA).

Not participating in this. Thanks for ruining it, OP.

And how would you know that?
Either way, more eyes looking to preserve Giga's catalogue is better and I fail to see how reposting this on multiple boards ruins it.

Because my informant told me OP posted it there, too.

Is there a single non niche VN company that isn't bankrupt at this point? All I can think of is SMEE and they're gonna be filing soon after their last two flops.
I have their entire (worthwhile) catalogue sitting on a drive anyway, which do you want specifically?
Replies: >>179315
Again, I don't care as I don't consider VNs vidya and 99.9% of them are trash.

Watch the video, retard. Does that look like a VN to you?

Why even argue with him? You're trying to prove a negative to somebody who's entrenched in their own taste. You might as well argue with a wall.
This thread's probably gonna get deleted anyway because rapeman is a nigger.

How come we're always using Base64 to decode links? Is it because it's easy to find a decoder online?
Don't data scrapers ever pick up on this?

Nowadays places like those get shut down left and right.
Plus they had future releases as well, like 4 of them and they'll only be available on a really short time window unless somehow they get sold somewhere else by someone else.

If you don't look like this you need to leave this website.

Encoded torrent for Baldr Sky 1&2 in japanese. I'll seed it for a week or two.
Any half decent text editor should have a base 64 en/decoder built in. 
As far as I'm aware scrapers don't yet identify and decode strings of text. Yet
