How to Sing to Open Your Heart- on KICKSTARTER NOW! [commercial,otome,nekomimi,fantasy,cute,fullyvoiced]

Kickstarter Campaign: HERE!

"How to Sing to Open Your Heart (Japanese Title: Kokoro wo Hiraku Utaikata/ KOKOUTA) " is a cute romance visual novel that will be fully voiced in Japanese, with Japanese, English and German text like its predecessors, "How to Fool a Liar King (HTFALK)” and “How to Take Off Your Mask (HTTOYM)." This will be the 3rd installment of the Story of Eroolia series.


STORY
Princess Myana is the current leader of Laarz, who also happens to love singing. Her songs put her people at ease and give them strength to feel hope. One day, she travels to Eroolia to see how the sick luccretias are being treated, as a result of the alliance that is made between Eroolia and Laarz. There, she meets Ludovic, the head of Eroolia’s Imperial Guards, who tells her that pure isolation is the only way for there to be peace, with both countries agreeing to never contact each other.

Her meeting with Anna, Eroolia’s princess, also makes her reconsider her decision. On top of that, the arguments she witnesses in Eroolia opens her eyes, making her realize that the political situation in Eroolia is much more complicated than in Laarz. Letting the sick luccetias be treated there might cause a bigger problem for both humans and luccretias.

But Myana is a smart princess, with a lot of curiosity, who will do anything for the sake of her people.

Politics? Dispute? They might be obstacles, but escape is not an option.
But…what about love? Will it be a problem for her?

Can her song be the key to saving her people?

I'm focusing to finish all assets first and will proceed the game in one go, therefore I won't make a demo first now, while some of the assets are not ready yet.
In my current schedule, June will be the month to take care with the voice assets, and therefore I will need to prepare the script for the VAs, since this time there will be 13 VAs who will join this project :)
Enjoy and thank you for your attention :)

13.) Crowdfunding
Do not link to crowdfunding campaigns (including kickstarter or indiegogo campaigns) for visual novels or games unless those campaigns include a link to a nontrivial playable demo or a completed game by substantially the same team.
This is from the rules thread. If the other games that you linked were created by basically the same team, it is acceptable to post your Kickstarter link even without a demo for this game. c:

This looks super cute! Good luck with your Kickstarter campaign.

Oh thank you! I didn't know about it since the red notification at the top of the forum only mentioned about the demo. I will write more about the campaign then :)

Added more detailed information about the world of Eroolia, especially for people who never played the previous two games.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/12 ... ts/2214393

Also, I adjusted the text at introduction and story to make it sounds more friendly :)

And here is the sample of the game screen:

And then this character is Anna, Juli's sister who will hold an important role within the game.
