Tokyo Otaku Mode has launched a preview of its Kickstarter campaign for the dystopian VN Re: Sharin no Kuni. After the previously failed crowdfunding campaign, this time they’re relaunching it with lower goal at $80,000 and more reward tiers! The campaign is an english PC localization attempt of a bishoujo game by AKABEi SOFT2, taking place in a fictional “Land of the Spinning Wheel”, where the society imposes special “Duties” for those who breaks the laws. Let’s check out the overview below.
A society which imposes special “Duties” upon everyone who breaks the law.
The individuals who oversee these criminals’ rehabilitation are the “Special Elite”ーa rank the protagonist, Kenichi Morita, hopes to attain. To do that, he must pass his final exam, for which he arrives at a certain country town.
At the school Kenichi attends, he encounters girls bound by various “Duties.” Those obligated “to observe a 12-hour day” are forbidden from being awake for more than 12 hours per day, and those obligated “to remain in infancy” cannot grow up. It is meeting Natsumi Hinata, however, the girl who “cannot fall in love,” that throws him out of gear.
Soon, Kenichi makes a series of odd discoveries… His own grave, erected secretly on a clifftop; his patrimony, hidden deep inside a cavern. Kenichi finds that he must search for his own atonement in this dystopian society. What is the truth behind the the Land of the Spinning Wheel? Discover for yourself through Kenichi’s eyes!
A touching story with a deeply profound message, depicted with a serene touch and moments of lighthearted comedy, this visual novel is simply worth the experience, for both old fans and new!
Unlike the usual bishojo games that focus on the romance part between the protagonist and the heroines, Sharin No Kuni employs a deep and touching story with unimaginable twist, that will leave you speechless at the end of the story. Play the game through the eyes of Kenichi Morita, a boy that in order to become a “Special Elite”, he must pass a special exam by rehabilitating three of his classmates.
Once the goal is reached, there will also be stretch goal bonuses such as bonus chapter and a PS Vita release! By pledging to the project, you can receive various merchandises including:
