Recently in attendance at Anime Central, publisher of English-localised visual novels and niche games Sekai Project have announced three new titles they are working on. This is in addition to the launch of another Kickstarter campaign and the start of a new brand to focused on Otome and Boy’s Love title. You can read more about all of their acquisitions below:
Developed by Vifth Floor
Void is the newest project from Vifth Floor, who in the past created Just Deserts. According to Sekai Project, this title will “focus on deep plot and atmosphere”.
“In a journey of revenge, you better be ready to dig two graves.”
That thought kept lingering in Arthur Woods’s head, as he continued his journey of finding the killer of his girlfriend, the mysterious organization called ‘The Syndicate’.
He worked as one of their assassins; he received his orders from cutouts and anonymous letters, and killed people no questions asked. He threw away what morality and humanity he has left for his desire of vengeance, while trying to unravel the elusive organization in order to see his true target. Arthur Woods is the mastermind, the author of his pain and misery, and he will not stop even if it kills him.
But one day, Ciel Blanchette, an MI6 agent, came. When Arthur saw that Ciel brought along Julie Ross, a vigilante, in tow, he knew that ‘The Syndicate’ was not what he thought it was.
Developed by Escu:de
According to Sekai Project, “Re; Lord offers a fun and innovative map-building type gameplay with clicker style battle-sequences including different effects and abilities.”
In a fantasy world where magic exists, the demon realm faced an unprecedented danger. Three “witches of disaster” appeared and invaded the demon country of Saarland. Due to the recent peaceful times, Saarland lacked the skills to protect the territory of Groesen. Recognizing the witches’ overwhelming powers, such as the ability to change the form of others, they surrendered the territory to them.
Half a year later, the majority of the townspeople in Groesen had been turned into dolls. Wilfred decided to take back the land from the witches, and he possesses the only ability to defeat them.
