As a lot of our readers probably already know, I (Robin Ek, TGG) have become a pretty huge fan of visual novel games (a couple of years ago, I would have laughed at the mere thought of me being a fan of visual novels). I mean, I´ve been playing through VN titles such as “Quantum Suicide“, “The Letter“, “Sekaiju Yggdrasil“, and “Dragon dating simulator” (to name a few). So, yeah, I´ve been hooked up to the visual novel genre for sure (I like VN horror games the most though).
We just launched a new visual novel called Ascendant Hearts on Kickstarter. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the game.
Hayato lived an ordinary life until he wakes up one day with amnesia… and finds himself in a world closer to the video games he plays than the world he remembers.
Fetch quests? Skill points? Respawning after death? It’s all a bit much to accept. A mage named Shiori offers to help him find his way, and with her help, he learns how to fight monsters, perform fetch quests, and put items in a strange metaphysical space called an “inventory.”
Soon he’s ready to take on NPC quests! But the town of Lightshire is in danger from deadly monsters—monsters that can kill you for real.” – Visualnoveler
And I´ll have you know that “Ascendant Hearts” is off to a good start since the game has already collected almost 1/5 of its 5,733 USD goal on Kickstarter. So, yeah, things are going rather well for Visualnoveler. Furthermore, since there is still 29 days left to go before the Kickstarter campaign ends, I believe that it´s very like that “Ascendant Hearts” will be fully funded on time. I truly hope so at least, as I like the sound of this (I also enjoyed the Kickstarter trailer quite a bit):
“Ascendant Hearts is a visual novel where you wake up in a strange new world before going on a real-life RPG adventure with three wacky party members.”
– Parody of traditional JRPG and MMORPG tropes.
– Immersive fantasy world filled with monsters and memorable characters.
– Numerous distinct environments, including a haunted library, a mad scientist’s laboratory, and an eldritch temple.
– Find true love on your quest to save the village of Lightshire.
– Lighthearted and humorous atmosphere.
– Four possible endings based on your choices.
So, what do you guys and girls think about “Ascendant Hearts”? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
