Visual novel fans should already be very familiar with the Narcissu titles, a series that wasn’t afraid to explore themes about terminal illness and the relationship between the living and dying. If not, Narcissu 1st & 2nd is available as a free download from Steam and comes highly recommended. However, Sekai Project have decided to team up with Stage-nana, the original creators, and do a full remake of the Narcissu anthology. Fans have been waiting years for the rest of the Narcissu series to be translated and, if the Kickstarter campaign is successful, this will finally happen.

Sekai Project and Stage-nana plans on releasing the fully-recreated series of games as well as a brand new scenario on PC. The good news is that fans won’t have to wait very long for this to happen either as the goal is for have these titles available within a 6-month time frame! With 2015 marking the 10th anniversary of the original game Sekai Project decided that it is about time that loyal fans are rewarded with a definitive anthology of the series.

The complete anthology will include the origin story of the 7th Floor, a separate side story set in medieval Europe, a short epilogue for Narcissue 2 and also an entirely new chapter in the Narcissue series. All the visual novels will come with brand new art and re-recorded voices. According to Sekai Project, “Himeko’s Epilogue” will be available as early as late November, with the other titles expected to be completed in December, January and February.

Sekai Project has already pushed $60,000 into the project and bulk of the additional $75,000 goal on Kickstarter will be used for voice licenses, new voice recording and the work required for the brand new chapter. A $20 pledge is enough to secure digital copies of all four games, which will be lower than the future retail price, but there are additional goodies to tempt fans. These include a digital copy of a Narcissue Visual Fanbook with author comments and bonus material, limited edition physical disc of Narcissu 1+2, T-shirt and tapestry. One of the pledges even include a dinner with Tomo Kataoka, creator of the series, at Anime Expo 2016 in Los Angeles!

Lewd Warfare (Ironstrom And Co)

With plenty of English visual novels appearing on Steam and in bundles these days players are spoiled for choice. However, indie games with adult content still face an uphill battle in terms of funding and exposure. We’ve seen developers like Lupiesoft expanding their roster with adult titles, such as the upcoming Menagerie, but outside of the visual novel genre the pickings for quality adult titles are still slim. Nevertheless, a small team of programmers, designers and artists are seeking to change this with their upcoming 18+ title, Lewd Warfare.

FlameFrost Legacy By Epic Dragon

In recent years we’ve seen indie developers take on some pretty ambitious projects, and pull it off, but Epic Dragon takes things to a whole new level. This indie outfit composes of only a programmer and artist, but these two guys plan on creating an MMORPG. We are not talking pixel art or retro art visuals either, but full-blown 3D and tons of detail. Even more amazing, they plan for the whole thing to run inside a modern browser without the need for any plug-ins to be installed first and for players to get in the game within seconds.
