Interview with Peter Payne of JAST USA

Rillania of Lewdgamer sits down and enjoys a few beers with Peter Payne, owner and head of visual novel publishing company JAST USA.

JAST is the oldest major VN English publishing company still around today, and is responsible for bringing over titles to western audiences such as Nitroplus’s Saya No Uta and Steins;Gate, Overdrive’s School Days, and Littlewitch’s Littlewitch Romanesque. In this interview, Rillania and Peter discuss topics such as the emergence of visual novels on steam, censorship in visual novels, how the western landscape has changed in recent years, his plans for the future, and Peter’s favorite fetishes.
