A common misconception when it comes to Kickstarter is that all projects are seeking the same goal, which isn’t true at all. While it is true that many are seeking creation, some are seeking distribution. This is popular in the video game section of the site. Some creators have already made their game, but now they want to expand it to a new audience, and even potentially grow the game from where it is now. This is the case for the visual novel known as Wonderful Everyday.
This title has already been released in Japan by developer KeroQ, and the game has already made it to the top of the charts in the many different areas, including being hailed as one of the best recent entries in its genre. Now, they’re teaming up with Frontwing to bring an English Localization to the West, as well as making physical copies of the game, and physical items like t-shirts and stuffed animals.
Now, Wonderful Everyday is an adult-oriented Kickstarter, meaning it has not only dark themes, but some very deep philosophical questions. The game itself is about a group of people that are about to have a major event happen to them, and you’ll follow them all in the lead-up to that event and beyond. What will happen to them? How will it affect the others? This is what you will find out.
However, if you want to do things a little differently, the first chapter of Wonderful Everyday will be available in Steam in August, and should the remaining chapters get localized, they’ll be uploaded for free. So you have options on how you play this title.
Visual novels are not for everyone, as they emphasize story over gameplay more times than not, but the trade off is that you’ll have fully developed characters and a story that isn’t bound by wandering the world in search of story and cut scenes. If this sounds like your kind of game, then head to Kickstarter and support them.
