A Kickstarter page is now up for the visual novel Episicava Vol. 1. The game has inspirations from other series such as Tokyo Babel and Fate. The goal for the page is $2,000 and at the time of writing is about three quarters of the way funded. Other stretch goals have been listed at $4,000 for twice as much content and $7,000 for an opening and ending theme. Several different rewards are available for pledges and include some wallpapers, a download from Nutaku, a Steam key, digital soundtrack, and digital artbook. Here’s a description of the game’s plot.
“Fifty years ago, the face of the Earth was permanently changed when it came into contact with a mysterious force known as the “Alpha Nebula.” As a result, humans developed various supernatural abilities and divided themselves based on those traits.
The main factions include: The Tonitrui, the Excedente, the Praecantator, the Permuto, and the Northmanni. Each has their own unique set of abilities that came with the collision – with the exception of the Northmanni, who remain largely unchanged.
Among these races, however, existed a special group of people who managed to retain all the other races’ abilities. They were a very powerful – but small and isolated group – known as “Emulators.”
Arin Arlento was one of these people, living in a remote village with his grandfather and other members of their race; everything was peaceful until the Northmanni Empire massacred the Emulators and kidnapped his childhood friend, Aria.
The only other survivor, Arin escaped into the Northmanni’s home continent of Rakos, hiding and plotting his revenge – that is, until he found out that Aria was still alive and was being experimented on.
Loathing the world that took everything away from him, Arin begins his quest to retrieve his friend and exact retribution on those who destroyed all that he held dear.
It’s one misguided man against the world…”
The Kickstarter for Episicava Vol. 1 will run until August 6. A demo is also available. Follow the link below to take a look at their Kickstarter page.
