Life is all about second chances, which is why I believe Kosmos Connections deserves your attention. To clarify, this is the two-in-one visual novels from the very talented people in Thetau Games. You may recall this title as it previously was on the crowdfunding platform back in February. Sadly, the initial campaign was unsuccessful. However, the team is back with a new vision, but same passion and are really close to obtaining funding. This one flies under many radars, but the demo tells a very interesting story that I can no longer ignore. As always, I could write a million words about why I like this demo, but ultimately it comes down to you. I encourage you to try the demo and afterwards consider giving the developers $15. That amount is enough to secure your copy and inch the team closer to a successful campaign.
At 70% with 5 days to go. The goal is still reachable, but I think we'll have to work to make it past the finish line. Let's all do our best, everyone! pic.twitter.com/89VPhimESv

So what is Kosmos Connections about?
Welcome Back to Kosmos!
After being gone for eight years, Adelfos (the player) returns with his sister Runia to spend the last week of winter vacation in their hometown of Kosmos. Upon arrival, Adelfos meets up with his childhood friend, Tau Theta, who soon convinces him and her new friend Jennavieve Caeda into becoming testers for her visual novel – Uplink Alethia. However, as the group plays more of Tau’s game, the more her reason for creating it become increasingly questionable…
There’s also the second game! What’s Uplink Alethia about?
Kazuhira Hatanaka is the man behind the Soul Uplink, a machine that uploads people’s souls to a digital world called the Datascape. However, when his assistant Nona runs the first test, it all goes wrong. She finds something in the Datascape that shouldn’t be there; something that gave her a sense of loss…
Will you be able to connect with those in the town of Kosmos and find a deeper meaning from within Uplink Alethia, or will you instead continue to take the world at its face value.
