voices2Whist moving through the sea of visual novels on Kickstarter, something caught my eye with a truly gorgeous art style, and upon further inspection, I’ve decided that Voices from the Sea, the newest visual novel from Zeiva Inc, it worth a look. The game has been successfully funded and met its first stretch goal already, and with a week left to go on Kickstarter, Voices from the Sea is definitely one of the visual novels you’ll want to keep an eye on.

I actually took the time to play the demo, accessible to anyone from their Kickstarter page, and I can personally vouch for the quality and high level of polish this game brings to the table. The backgrounds are gorgeous, and this time around, the backgrounds are fully animated and the text boxes theme with them as the story progresses. The story revolves around the character Cantus, who has a pessimistic view on life until one day, sitting by the sea to escape the noise of his daily life, he meets a mysterious girl who takes a liking to him. You ride along as the two interact and Cantus’s view of the world is changed forever.

Voices from the Sea has already been fully funded, so we can expect an eventual release, and I encourage you to play the demo. I was intrigued by this game’s fresh take on the medium, and I’m genuinely excited about its release. The game plans to have full voice acting and cutscenes to make the story as immersive and involving as possible, and if it reaches its next stretch goal, we can expect a side story featuring one of the game’s other characters. Fully funded, it’s Voices from the Sea by Zeiva Inc.
