People looking forward to helping fund the Umineko When They Cry: Gold Edition will need to wait a bit longer for the project from Catbox Creative, 07th Expansion, and MangaGamer. It has been delayed for a second time. However, to make up for it, one of the voice actors and one of the backer rewards have been revealed.
As a reminder, the Umineko When They Cry: Gold Edition Kickstarter was supposed to begin on November 7, 2018. However, on November 7, 2018, Catbox Creative said on Twitter that its start date was delayed until November 14, 2018, due to a desire to bring even more content due to people showing a “overwhelming positive response.” On November 14, 2018, the latest Twitter update revealed another delay had been caused by a member of the launch team falling ill and did not offer an updated Kickstarter launch date.
Due to a health emergency affecting an essential member of our launch team, we are deeply sorry to say that the start time for the #UminekoGold Kickstarter must be slightly delayed. We will launch as soon as we receive word from our colleague that we’re out of the woods! (1/2)

As for the new reveals, it turns out Linda Young will be voicing Chiyo Kumasawa. Young is known for being Frieza in Dragon Ball Z, Genkai in Yu Yu Hakusho, Porlyusica in Fairy Tail, and the narrator in My Bride is a Mermaid.
Finally, one of the physical products in the Umineko When They Cry: Gold Edition Kickstarter will be a deck of playing cards. All 54 will be themed, with character art on the front and roses, stakes, wings, and butterflies replacing the normal hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs suits.
Umineko When They Cry is immediately available for PCs.
