SpicyTails, a doujin developer circle in Japan, has launched a Kickstarter for their three-part visual novel trilogy World End Economica.
From 2011 through 2013, the World End Economica series has been rather quiet outside of the promise of a console port in the west. However, since its PC release, the visual novel has gained many fans, but the developer mentions that it wasn’t a “commercial success.”
The Kickstarter is asking for $46,050 to help fund the project, which also has an investor to assist with additional funding. However, the Kickstarter isn’t to support the creation of the anime directly, but instead to help with advertising fees. Being that this is a small team, they’d like to try and bring this project to as many new fans as possible.
The money will be used for:
- TV commercials
- Production costs for advertising materials
- Exhibition fees at events
- Translation fees for overseas media
World End Economica is set in the far future on the moon, where for 16 years, humans have been colonizing it. The story follows a young boy named Haru, who has been chasing his wildest dreams, which involves him standing where no man has stood before, but in order to do this, he’ll need capital, and a lot of it, such is life. As he works toward getting enough funds to acquire his dreams, he ends up looking towards the stock market, which requires him to understand two rules:
- First: Never take a loss.
- Second: Never forget the first.
It’s with these rules that he might be able to fund his trip and gain enormous wealth doing it.
