Sekai Project released the Clannad visual novel on the PC via Steam in November 2015 after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Sekai Project also released the Clannad: Side Stories visual novel on the PC via Steam in 2016.
The original visual novel has already been ported to PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Xbox 360, PlayStation Vita, and phones in Japan.
The game inspired an anime movie and two television anime series. The series follows delinquent high school student Tomoya Okazaki, who one day meets a strange girl named Nagisa Furukawa who is a year older, but is repeating her last year of high school due to illness. Tomoya becomes involved with Nagisa and her hopes of restarting the school drama club.
