Following its 2015 Kickstarter campaign, Muv-Luv Alternative, a visual novel by âge, has been released on Steam.
After a very successful Kickstarter in 2015, the Muv-Luv Team has been hard at work bringing the series over to a Western audience. Originally released over ten years ago in Japan, Muv-Luv Alternative officially launched on Steam earlier this week.
###About This Game
This is it. The chips are down, the die’s been cast, and the fate of the multiverse is on the line. Step back into the cockpit and prepare for deployment in Muv-Luv Alternative, the most critically acclaimed visual novel of all time. Just be sure to keep a box of tissues handy, because it’s about to be a bumpy ride.
This isn’t a cutesy high school rom-com anymore; it’s an epic tale of political conspiracies, international espionage, an alien menace, quantum causality, bittersweet reunions, genetic modification, and much, much more. Gluttons for punishment, rejoice, because once it gets rolling, there are no brakes on this pain train. It’ll test your limits, challenge your worldview, and by the time it’s all over, you’ll be so emotionally spent that it’ll be weeks before you can fully process the implications of what you’ve just witnessed. Fair warning, though: common side effects include feelings of emptiness, PTSD, and unrealistic expectations for any and all other visual novels.
This definitive release comes complete with a brand new translation, all-new CGs, additional voice acting, and dual language/ tablet support, so if you think you’re ready to take the dive, there’s never been a better time to strap in and see for yourself why so many readers consider this the greatest story ever told.
News on the Director’s Cut patch, meant to restore adult content, is very sparse. According to a comment made on Kickstarter, there are still plans for its release in the future. For now, the team is focused on getting the rest of the Kickstarter rewards out, as well as focusing on the trilogy release on the Playstation Vita.
Muv-Luv Alternative can be purchased on Steam for $39.99. It’s available only for Windows platforms. At the time of writing, it’s sitting steady with a 100% positive review score.
