World End Economica Anime Crowdfunding Campaign Unveils Video

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Crowdfunding for adaptation of visual novel launches on Thursday

Game developer Spicy Tails posted an announcement video for its crowdfunding campaign for an anime of its World End Economica visual novel on Wednesday. The video features the song "Loosers" by Kishida Kyōdan & The Akeboshi Rockets.

The campaign will launch on Thursday.

Visual novel publisher Sekai Project released the first visual novel episode of World End Economica on Steam in 2014, then launched a Kickstarter to localize the second and third episodes.

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?

Sekai Project announced in 2016 that it would release the game for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2017. The release has been delayed, and Sekai Project stated on July 1 that it is "in the process of finalizing the port." The company plans to release the game digitally via the PlayStation Network, and will team with Limited Run Games to release a physical edition. The release will feature all three chapters of the game.

The first episode of the game launched in Japan in 2011, followed by the second episode in 2012, and the third episode in August 2013.
