Laplacian’s Newton and the Apple Tree, a visual novel involving time travel and a genderbent Sir Issac Newton, is now available on Steam.
After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Newton and the Apple Tree has finally arrived to Western audiences. Developed by Laplacian and published by Sol Press, Newton and the Apple Tree is a visual novel eroge with air-headed girls and time travel hijinks.
While searching for his missing grandfather, Syuji Asanaga and his childhood friend, Yotsuko Utakane, somehow time travel to the 17th century. That is when they meet Sir Isaac Newton, who is moments from discovering universal gravitation. Against all expectations, Newton turns out to be a small, flat-chested girl.
When Syuji crashes into the apple tree Isaac Newton was sitting under, he prevents her discovery from happening. This causes important scientific discoveries to vanish and history to be rewritten. Will Syuji be able to fix the past and return to the present?
"'Newton' was actually the pen name of a brilliant-minded girl!?"
Protagonist Syuji Asanaga and his childhood friend Yotsuko Utakane, while tracking down Syuji's missing grandfather, unexpectedly ended up traveling through time to the 17th century, a time known for exciting advances in scientific discovery.
What they witnessed upon their arrival was the presence of a single girl right in front of them.
This particular girl would go on to be dubbed as the father of modern-day science, Sir Isaac Newton!
That’s correct, Newton turned out to be a small, flat-chested girl!
Unaware of this, Syuji loudly crashed into the apple tree right in front of the girl.
"You do realize that I was just on the verge of making the most groundbreaking discovery, don't you!?"
It was at the moment our main couple traveled through time,
right then and there, that Newton discovered universal gravitation!
And just like that, through Syuji's witless conduct, the great scientific discoveries of that century had all crumbled to ashes. What's more, like the domino effect, this would gradually end up altering key points in history.
Now taking up residence at the prestigious English university called "Tenbridge University," Syuji finds himself pulled into the antics of four strange girls (and Yotsuko).
In the midst of all this chaos, will Syuji ever be able to rectify history and return to the present!?
