Kickstarter for World End Economica #2-3 in English Launched
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The North American visual novel distributor Sekai Project launched its Kickstarter campaign for episodes two and three of Spice and Wolf author Isuna Hasekura's visual novel World End Economica on Monday. The company is looking to raise US$22,000 before July 9 to localize both episodes digitally on Steam and release the entire trilogy in physical format. The Steam release is planned for Windows, OSX, and Linux systems.
Sekai Project describes the story:
Written by Isuna Hasekura, the author of Spice and Wolf, World End Economica is 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 -- to stand where no man has stood before. To do so he needs capital... a ludicrous amount of capital. What better place to get that much money than by using the stock market?
If successful, the visual novel episodes will be released in May 2015. Reward perks for backers include the digital soundtrack, pencil boards, and wall scrolls.
If the campaign reaches its stretch goal of US$30,000, Sekai Project will port the game for Android devices. The campaign has raised over US$14,000 as of press time.
