With more than $1 Million raised and all stretch goals met, the Kickstarter campaign being held for the Muv-Luv visual novel franchise has proven to be an immense success for both Degica and IXTL. Those looking to get in on the crowdfunding and take advantage of the pledge items on offer have only 31 hours (as of writing) remaining to pledge during the visual novel’s official Kickstarter campaign. With the total pledged currently equaling $1,063,565, those interested have until Wednesday November 4th 2015 at 5:00AM AEST to make their pledge.
That being said, they are also accepting pledges through Paypal, meaning it may (or may not) be possible to pledge after the campaign ends.
The Kickstarter will focuses on the localisation and PC (Steam) release of the first two titles in the Muv-Luv series: Muv-Luv (Containing Part 1: Extra and Part 2: Unlimited) and Muv-Luv Alternative (Part 3 – A direct sequel to Unlimited). This English localised release will include the most up-to-date HD graphics available, with assets sourced from not only the newer PS3 remakes but brand new updated content directly from âge-soft. It will also feature an upgraded engine to support newer OS’s and an updated user interface.

Shirogane Takeru was living a peaceful life as a 3rd year high school student, with his childhood friend Kagami Sumika. However, one morning Takeru awakens to see a mysterious girl named Mitsurugi Meiya sleeping in his bed. Thus begins the start of a high school love comedy where Takeru will have to choose between his childhood friend and the girl insisting they are bonded by fate.
Shirogane Takeru finds himself stuck in a parallel world where mankind is on the brink of extinction after battling against alien invaders known as the BETA for the last 20 years. Takeru soon finds himself enrolled into the United Nations 11th Force to fight these aliens. In this strange world he finds parallel versions of all of his high school friends, with one exception: Kagami Sumika, who does not seem to exist. Soon he will have to fight to save mankind and protect the girl he comes to love over the course of the story.
Three years after witnessing the tragic exodus of mankind, Takeru wakes up believing that everything that had happened was just a dream. The brief hope that he has at last come back to his world is dashed away as soon as he discovers that he is once more trapped in the parallel world of Unlimited. Restarting on that fateful day he first came here, will Takeru manage to use his knowledge of previous events to change mankind’s tragic future?
