Chicago, IL – May 20th, 2017 – Sekai Project, a rising publisher and licenser of
Japanese new media and electronic entertainment today announced, during their live
panel at Anime Central in Chicago, their plans to publish and localize three new
titles for PC, the launch of a new Kickstarter campaign, and a new brand dedicated to publishing Otome and Boy’s Love (BL) games.

A synopsis for all announcements and updates can be found below.

VOID
Developer: Vifth Floor
“In a journey of revenge, you better be ready to dig two graves.”

That thought kept lingering in Arthur Woods’s head, as he continued his journey of finding the killer of his girlfriend, the mysterious organization called ‘The Syndicate’.

He worked as one of their assassins; he received his orders from cutouts and anonymous letters, and killed people no questions asked. He threw away what morality and humanity he has left for his desire of vengeance, while trying to unravel the elusive organization in order to see his true target. Arthur Woods is the mastermind, the author of his pain and misery, and he will not stop even if it kills him.

But one day, Ciel Blanchette, an MI6 agent, came. When Arthur saw that Ciel brought along Julie Ross, a vigilante, in tow, he knew that ‘The Syndicate’ was not what he thought it was.

VOID is the newest visual novel project from Vifth Floor, the creators of Just Deserts. The game will focus on deep plot and atmosphere. The game’s theme song and BGM is composed by Vesuvia, the same studio responsible for Vifth Floor’s past works’ music. Kareidon is the main illustrator for VOID, who is most famously known for his art in Fate/Grand Order.

Re;Lord
Developer: Escu:de
In a fantasy world where magic exists, the demon realm faced an unprecedented danger. Three “witches of disaster” appeared and invaded the demon country of Saarland. Due to the recent peaceful times, Saarland lacked the skills to protect the territory of Groesen. Recognizing the witches’ overwhelming powers, such as the ability to change the form of others, they surrendered the territory to them.

Half a year later, the majority of the townspeople in Groesen had been turned into dolls. Wilfred decided to take back the land from the witches, and he possesses the only ability to defeat them.

Re; Lord offers a fun and innovative map-building type gameplay with clicker style battle-sequences including different effects and abilities.

Hoshizora no Memoria
DeveloperFavorite

Meet Kogasaka You and his little sister, Chinami, both of whom after the sudden death of their mother, are set to leave the city to go back to their childhood hometown to live with their aunt, Shino.

When she discovered that You would be leaving the town, she made him promise to return to marry her and left him with simply a kiss on the forehead to remember her by.

Once You returns to his hometown, he searches for that childhood friend, only to find his previous meet-up location is now fenced-off and abandoned.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
