Tomoyo After is a sequel of sorts to CLANNAD, serving as a continuation of the character arc for romance option Tomoyo Sakagami. The full description can be found on the game’s Greenlight page:
Visual novel developed by Key
A sequel to CLANNAD, following Tomoyo’s ending.
Tomoya, the protagonist, has started to work at a waste collection company in the outskirts of town. He recently begun living on his own, and enjoys a calm and happy life with his girlfriend Tomoyo.
One day Tomoyo’s brother, Takafumi, brings his father’s illegitimate child, Tomo, to Tomoya’s apartment.
Tomo had been abandoned by her mother, and Tomoya and Tomoyo reluctantly decide they would look after her.
Furthermore, Takafumi’s ex-girlfriend, Kanako, ran away from her home just before the start of summer vacation.
She too ends up staying in Tomoya’s room.
Tomoya, Tomoyo, Tomo, Takafumi, Kanako.
And so begins the first and the last summer these five people will spend together.
“A never ending love does exist, I know it…”
The homely heroine who supports Tomoya, who has just joined the workforce out of high school.
She is actually very good at fighting and would win even against a group of people ganging up on her.
“It’s like a curse born of my mistake…”
Tomoyo’s brother. He is very well-versed with computers.
Against Tomoya’s wishes, he set up a computer in the room and visits to sue it frequently.
“If something like that doesn’t exist… It’s better to enjoy life as much as you can.”
A girl who ran away from home, unhappy with her mother’s upcoming remarriage.
She apparently used to date Takafumi and has a foul mouth.
“Then make up with a kiss.”
The illegitimate child of Tomoyo’s father. An innocent young girl who would believe in anything.

VisualArt’s’ localization of Tomoyo After represents an ongoing effort by the publisher to self-publish more of its visual novels in the west via Steam. Harmonia is the first, set for release in spring, followed by Tomoyo After in summer, with Little Busters! Perfect Edition also waiting in the wings. CLANNAD itself was also released on Steam by Sekai Project at the end of last year, and you can find our review of it here.
