Developer Devgru-P has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their historical visual novel Mein Waifu is the Fuhrer, in development for PC.
Mein Waifu is the Fuhrer tells the story of Erwin Rommel who is leading the invasion of Poland when things go south as a plot to overthrow the German government led by Oberstleutnant Claus von Stauffenberg results in the death of the entire German high command. Returning to Berlin to prevent civil war, Erwin discovers that Führer and the other high commanding officers aren’t dead, but instead changed into anime waifus.
Through the story, the anime Führer runs Germany into the ground at every turn and doesn’t seem to understand the military strategy or even diplomacy. Throughout the game, players will make friends, but mostly enemies, at pivotal moments in history as events follow the Battle of Stalingrad to the Invasion of Normandy. Also, since the game has waifus you can expect that there is some romance here. I’m pretty sure you can date Hitler in this game…
The campaign gives players a chance to purchase the game for $10 and is asking for $8000 to fund the rest of the game’s development. The team has previously run two other successful Kickstarters for their previous projects which now leads them here.
The developer adds, “This game is a parody work. Devgru-P is an inclusive company that includes team members of many nationalities, religions, sexualities, gender identities, and backgrounds. Nothing in this game is meant to offend, nor would we as a team or company publish a game with that intention. We are 100% against any form of bigotry. All of our games have a 90%+ positive rating on Steam because we’re a team who knows how to do parody right! Let’s make a great game together!”
