Visual Novel WAS ~ The Hourglass of Lepidoptera ~ Now on Kickstarter

Longtime visual novel fans are probably shocked by their sudden move to prominence over the past few years. Sekai Project, itself a fairly new publisher, has championed much of this change. Today they announced their latest Kickstarter campaign for WAS ~The Hourglass of Lepidoptera~.

This visual novel takes place in the small real-life city of Tottori, Japan with a cast of anime characters. Developer SRL originally created the game to help showcase their hometown to the world. If the Kickstarter goal of $10,000 is reached then they’ll be able to fully translate and tweak the game engine. However, visual novel lovers should hope for the $30,000 stretch goal which will license voice actor performances for event scenes. To actually have the game voiced in full requires $46,000 in funding.

If you’d like to back WAS ~The Hourglass of Lepidoptera~ then hurry as Sekai Project Kickstarters are routinely funded far beyond initial goals. Right now there is a $12 early bird tier to grab a Steam copy which will definitely be gone soon.
