The indie games publisher and indie games developer Voyvod Arts today announced with great delight and excitement that they have just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming alternate-history visual novel/adventure game “One Spirit”.
The alt-history novel One Spirit, set in a fictional nation from Eastern Europe, recently announced on social media the start of their Kickstarter campaign, which will be active until August 5, 2021. Voyvod Arts, the indie studio behind this dark, coming-of-age story, aims at reaching a funding goal of $21,871.25 (18,500€). At least the 50% of this amount will cover the development of the full game, which release is planned to happen between 2022 and 2023 on Steam.
One Spirit follows Yuri Danilin in his return to home, a small town called Nevilyovsk in the fictional nation of Sysica. The mysterious abduction of a young activist will be the starting poing of this playable drama where personal and public life are two sides of the same coin. The character will be voiced by the talented actor Yuri Lowenthal, who we already know thanks to NieR: Replicant, Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man and Naruto.
ABOUT ONE SPIRIT
One Spirit follows Yuri Danilin, a 18-year-old student disenchanted with life who returns to Nevilyovsk, his hometown, after finishing secondary education in the capital city. When news of a young local activist disappearing spread through the town, Yuri finds himself at the center of a dangerous game of truths that will push the whole country to the edge.
