LOS ANGELES – August 31, 2016 – Sekai Project, a publisher and licensor of Japanese new media and electronic entertainment, in partnership with Ebi-Hime, today announced the otome visual novel, This World Unknown will be available Friday, September 2nd on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

From Ebi-Hime, creator of Strawberry Vinegar, Asphyxia, The Way We ALL GO and Empty Horizons comes This World Unknown, a fantasy otome visual novel brimming with fluffy romance, world-building mechanics and shocking plot twists as Rhea struggles to come to terms with the consequence of war.

Peace is scarce in the country of Aslande, which has been at war with the neighboring country of Eressia for centuries. To Rhea, however, war is a distant concept; something she has heard about, but never witnessed. Born in a small, secluded village, Rhea occupies her life with more mundane concerns: her job at the local hospital, her playful bickering with her friend Asa, and her prayers for a successful harvest come autumn.

However, when Rhea’s childhood friend, Luca, returns home after fighting in one of Aslande’s many wars, Rhea is suddenly faced with a problem. Why is Luca suddenly so cold, so distant? What did he see out on the battlefield, and how did it change him?

At the same time, new worries plague Rhea, as one of the patients at the hospital is suffering from a rather perplexing illness – and a failure to cure him could have some unpleasant outcomes…

This World Unknown Features:

  • Writing/Programming by Ebi-Hime, artwork by Adyrn, and music by Amachamusic
  • Branching story lines with 4 different routes/love interests
  • Diverse cast featuring cat boys, succubi, slime girls, cute witches and more!
  • 50 unlockable CGs
