Discouraged Workers project has ended

Finally the fifth of the Project DW series is over.
I'll update the Discouraged Workers one more time but it will be a very small update.

Of course I will update more if the Project Gamer Japones has finished their work of Spanish translation,

or if I decide support more languages.
Now, I will make free playable DLC and the other sequels of the Project DW series.
Thank you for watching this project for a long time.
I look forward to your continued support.

The English translation is rather spotty. Based on the demo trailer there's some errors and dialogue seems rather unnatural for speech.

Otherwise it seems rather interesting

It was used my english and the magazine too. My translator will translate what I ordered(currently working for demo game). The trailer will be renewed again when the official release. Current trailer is the updated version of arts.
