World End Economica by Spice and Wolf's Hasekura Added to Steam Greenlight

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

The official English version of Spice and Wolf author Isuna Hasekura's visual novel World End Economica was added to Steam Greenlight on Wednesday. On Steam Greenlight, if enough people vote to say that they would buy the game if it were available on Steam, then Valve would make the game available on the PC. The page is streaming a subtitled opening sequence featuring the theme song "World End Economica" by Kisida Kyodan and The Akeboshi Rockets.

Three visual novels are planned for the series. The first "episode" launched in Japan in 2011 followed by the second episode in 2012.

The Steam Greenlight describes the story:

A three part visual novel set in the far future on the moon, 16 years after humans have begun to colonize it. A young boy named Haru has been chasing his wildest dream. His dream is to stand where no man has stood before, and in order to do so he needs capital, a ludicrous amount of capital. What better place to get that amount of capital by using the stock market? There are two key rules that govern the stock market.

The first rule: Never take a loss. The second rule: Never forget the first.

Only those who follow these rules are able to obtain enormous wealth...

The campaign is also hosting a raffle for the first episode's soundtrack if it is "green-lit." The first episode was previously available in English last year.
