Campaign funds limited edition Western release

Sekai Project's Kickstarter campaign for a limited edition physical Western release of developer Favorite's Hoshizora no Memoria -Wish upon a Shooting Star- visual novel met its initial goal of US$45,000 on Friday. If the project reaches its US$75,000 stretch goal, the Hoshizora no Memoria Eternal Heart fandisk will also get an English translation, and will be available to backers as a Kickstarter add-on.

Sekai Project announced in February 2016 that it plans to release the game on Steam, and the campaign launched on May 20. The translation is already complete.

The visual novel includes branching plotlines and multiple endings. Sekai Project describes the visual novel as follows:

Meet Kogasaka You and his little sister, Chinami, both of whom after the sudden death of their mother, are set to leave the city to go back to their childhood hometown to live with their aunt, Shino. Initially leaving their hometown of Hibarigasaki was difficult for You, as he was close friends with a girl who he saw nearly every day after school at the local town lookout. When she discovered that You would be leaving the town, she made him promise to return to marry her and left him with simply a kiss on the forehead to remember her by.

Once You returns to his hometown, he searches for that childhood friend, only to find his previous meet-up location is now fenced-off and abandoned. While out searching, he instead stumbles on a mysterious girl named Mare who carries a scythe and claims to be a Grim Reaper. Now back in his hometown, You starts to rebuild his life, making friends and continuing his search for the girl he made a promise to. Will he eventually find his promised love? Who is this mysterious girl and why does she seem so familiar?

As of press time, the project has earned US$46,256. The campaign will end on June 20.
