Today marks the launch of the Narcissu 10th Anniversary Anthology Project arriving on Kickstarter with a goal of $75,000. This is a huge moment for fans of Narcissu as this collection is no doubt going to be a must-have for them. Not only that, but it will help introduce a new era of visual novel fans to a fantastic series. It’s worth noting that if you do not have any knowledge of the series (but would like to) that you can play Narcissu 1st and 2nd for free on Steam.
This project also marks the 10th posted by Sekai Project in the span of just under two years, the eighth of which is for a visual novel. When Witch Boy Magical Piece failed to accrue enough backer interest, I wondered what their next step would be in regards to that project. At this point, we still don’t know as they have not posted a post-project Kickstarter update as is so customary with failed projects by other people. My belief is they are currently in private discussions with Rosemary House discerning how exactly to proceed. Even if those talks are still under wraps, an update saying “we are currently negotiating our next move” would be very beneficial.
As it stands, it feels incredibly awkward to see Sekai Project not acknowledge this failure publicly at all. It becomes even more awkward now that they’ve jumped right onto Kickstarter again while still mum on Witch Boy Magical Piece. To be fair, Narcissu 10th Anniversary Anthology Project has been in the planning stages for a good long while, and recently got a Prefundia page, but it’d be nice to see things resolved with their last project first.
