Sekai Project also offers stretch goal for potential iOS/Vita releases

Sekai Project's Kickstarter campaign for an English release of the final two episodes in Spice and Wolf author Isuna Hasekura's visual novel World End Economica met its stretch goal of US$30,000 on Thursday. The company will add Android support for the software, in addition to Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. As of press time, the campaign has earned over US$33,000 from over 670 backers with 25 days to go.

The company plans to use the Kickstarter funds to localize both episodes digitally on Steam and release the entire trilogy in physical format.

The company added a second stretch goal of US$33,000 for 1920x1080 art and video in both the new episodes and episode 1, a third stretch goal of U$60,000 to localize the 124-page World End Economica Offical Guidebook and short stories, and a fourth stretch goal of US$100,000 to add iOS systems and PlayStation Vita ports.

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?

The first "episode" launched in Japan in 2011 followed by the second episode in 2012 and the third episode in August 2013. Sekai Project released the first episode on Steam last month.

The visual novel episodes are slated for release in May 2015. The Steam release is planned for Windows, OSX, and Linux systems. Reward perks for backers include the digital soundtrack, pencil boards, and wall scrolls.
