The following is from an email that I received from the Chairman asking him if Piranesi is dead or alive - Masanori Nagashima:
Thank you very much for your email.
It is of course alive.
We have done some user interface changes for the Japanese version which is now V6.1 (only available in Japanese language).
We are discussing how we can improve the user interface for V6.0 for the world release.
Do you have any opinion about the user interface for V6.0?
As you can imagine, our income from Piranesi sales is quite limited now.
It is rather impossible for us to put a significant investment to change the user interface of V6.0.
Thank you very much again for your interest.
