Ertal Games has put up a new Kickstarter for their boys love visual novel eroge Chasing the Stars set in a sci-fi steampunk universe.
Ertal Games, also known as A Hand in the Darkness, has created a new Kickstarter campaign for a new boys love visual novel eroge called Chasing the Stars. The short science-fiction visual novel tells the story of Tirs Abril, a young man with a dream of going into space and joining the colonization effort of a planet named Alaya. To achieve his dream, Tirs starts work with a prominent researcher to build a protective dome to be later used on planet Alaya.
Right now, Ertal Games is seeking 1,500 euro to fund the game and have already prepared a few stretch goals that include a Steam release, a custom dakimakura, the game’s original OST, the ability to modify the character’s outfit and partial voice acting.
Be sure to check out more information from the Kickstarter page below.
After building some satellite cities as a test, the Earth is finally terraforming its first colony, the planet Alaya.
Tirs Abril has always dreamt of going to space, and now he’s determined to take part in the colonization. Following his dream, he’s currently studying the last year of Environmental Engineering in college.
After breaking up with his boyfriend, he finally finds his sought-after chance: working as a scholarship researcher with Professor Marc Rossell, a prominent figure in the field of Environmental Engineering, and right now in charge of building the dome that will cover the inhabitable part of Alaya. However, Tirs soon will find out things are more complicated than he thought and his path won’t precisely be a rose garden.
How much is Tirs willing to sacrifice to pursue his dream? What risks or actions is he going to deem acceptable to achieve his goal? Will he reconsider his options or advance as an unstoppable force, no matter what? His decisions are up to you!
Some of the main features of the game planned already include boy love interests, multiple game endings, top and bottom adult content (including two threesomes) with the option to skip it at your leisure, a story that’s around 7-8 hours to get through, a CG gallery and a choices guide.
Ertal Games has also prepared a short one-hour demo for those that want to see where Tirs’s adventures start. The demo contains a lot of placeholder material, but by playing it, the developers say you should get the overall feeling of how the game will turn out when completed.
To follow the campaign and game’s development closer, you can also follow Ertal Games on Twitter , Tumblr , Facebook , and Itch.io. The full release of the game is expected to be sometime in the third quarter of 2017.
