VisualArts/Key announced on November 22nd, 2022 that the original release of planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ would be removed from Steam on December 1st. An HD update of the game was released on Steam in 2017 but it lacked the English translation of the original version until an update in September of 2022. With support for more languages than the original release, it appears VisualArts/Key decided to remove the older version to avoid confusion between the two products which were both priced at $9.99.

It is thirty years after the failure of the Space Colonization Program.
Humanity is nearly extinct. A perpetual and deadly Rain falls on the Earth.
Men known as “Junkers” plunder goods and artifacts from the ruins of civilization.
One such Junker sneaks alone into the most dangerous of all ruins — a “Sarcophagus City”.
In the center of this dead city, he discovers a pre-War planetarium.
And as he enters he is greeted by Hoshino Yumemi, a companion robot.
Without a single shred of doubt, she assumes he is the first customer she’s had in 30 years.
She attempts to show him the stars at once, but the planetarium projector is broken.
Unable to make heads or tails of her conversation, he ends up agreeing to try and repair the projector …
For the first time, this heartwarming and memorable title is available on Steam! It is fully voiced in Japanese, and can be experienced with both English and Japanese text.
