posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Sol Press launched its Kickstarter campaign for Favorite's Irotoridori no Sekai visual novel series on Monday. The project seeks to raise US$85,000 to localize the first titular game in the series, with stretch goals of US$170,000 for the second game Irotoridori no Hikari, and US$215,000 for the third game Akai Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai.
The campaign will end on March 6. As of press time the project has raised US$29,608.
Sol Press' scheduled timeline for the release includes the release of the last game in the series by 2021. Sol Press plans to publish the games on PC via Steam and Hyourin. It describes the series:
Kanoue Yuuma is a magician.
A magician with the ability to heal a person's wounds, no matter what they may be, at the cost of his own memories. This story takes place in the remote seaside town of Kazatsugahama, in a weird, wonderful student dorm known as the Arashiyama Manor. Down in the basement is a link to another world. A vibrant, multicolored world…
For all the oddities surrounding this young man, he spends his life peacefully, almost as if it were a dream.
Until one day, it all changed. Under a full, glistening orange moon, a girl came down from the sky.
"Please, Mr. Magician. Won't you help me?"
The first game in the series debuted in Japan in 2011, followed by the sequel in 2012, and the third game in 2015.
