CLANNAD Visual Novel Kickstarter info



Sekai Project website | Facebook | Twitter

Quote:
Help us bring Key’s classic visual novel, CLANNAD, to English-speaking markets through Steam!

Why Kickstarter?

We at Sekai Project have decided to use Kickstarter because the cost of not only providing a professional, top-quality translation for 50+ hours of gameplay, but also covering licensing royalties, developing costs as well as the voices of many of the industry’s top Japanese voice actresses is quite a monumental task and we need your help! As visual novels still only occupy the hearts of a small group of gamers and anime fans overseas, localizing and translating such an epic comes with many risks, and now is our chance to show Key and other amazing visual novel companies together how much we want to enjoy their games in English!

Will CLANNAD be fully voiced?

Yes! If the project is successfully funded, it will be fully voiced in Japanese. Because we're relicensing the original voices the game will include the wonderful voices of Japanese voice actresses such as Mai Nakahara, Ai Nonaka, Mamiko Noto, Kikuko Inoue, and more! Please note that the protagonist was not voiced and we will not be adding voices for his lines. Additionally, we will not be recording an English dub.

Story

After losing his mother in a car accident and subsequently falling victim to an abusive, alcoholic father, Tomoya Okazaki is an emotionally-distant delinquent student at Hikarizaka Private High School. On his way to school, he meets a strange young girl, Nagisa Furukawa, who is repeating the year due to a severe illness. From their brief encounter, she decides that they are friends and enlists his help in order to revive their school’s drama club. With not much more to do, he cooperates with her, making friends with many of the students and learning about the different problems that they face…

Re: CLANNAD Visual Novel Kickstarter info

Did you remember to make a pledge for your copy of the Clannad Visual Novel. I am not sure if any physical copy will be available to order after this.

It means you'll be getting a physical edition of the CLANNAD MABINOGI Arrange Album and 80-page physical version of the CLANNAD Fanbook! Lastly, this is also KICKSTARTER exclusive edition, we cannot sell additional copies outside of Kickstarter once it's over so don't miss out on this

Re: CLANNAD Visual Novel Kickstarter info

I can't figure this out, is it the game or a motion comic?

I only read one before but I think the best way to describe it would be.

The reader plays a character, in Clannad the reader plays the character "Tomoya". In the Visual Novels of The Grisaia Trilogy the reader plays the character "Yuji Kazami"
I think Visual Novels are called games because once in a while the game gives the reader options of different things to say so you can choose the path the story goes.

but I only read one before not sure if that's all true for every Visual Novel.

Watch this video to see part of the game http://youtu.be/G9hGUC1x6-U

As a reminder, if you backed the game even with just a $1, this will allow you to get CLANNAD after the Kickstarter closes from BackerKit at any time

This is the Clannad physical release unboxing, they are going to be shipping in the next few days.

It cost me $50 for the physical release and it comes with the game, an album, and fanbook. if you did not support the kickstarter you can get just the game on steam for $50.

I didn't realize they still used that type of case.
