Story
What is it you want?
What is it you want so much you would do anything to get it?
And how far would you go to get it?

Kako no Koi is the story of Naoya Kiriyama, a normal boy at Moboroshi high school. His everyday life is nothing to get excited about: the biggest delinquent at his school considers him his buddy, his younger sister treats him with nothing but disdain, and his mother believes he must have done something to deserve that. The only bright moments in his days are those he spends with Chizuru, his cheerful and understanding childhood friend.

But after Naoya one night has a strange dream of standing in front of a great weeping willow, his life is turned upside down. His sister suddenly develops an interest in the occult, and her personality begins to change. Naoya's childhood friend has a terrible suspicion that may very well spell disaster for his entire family. Could this all be related to the tragedy of Moboroshi ten years ago when a local shrine burned down, apparently for no reason? Or is something even more sinister at work here?

Whatever it is, it brings change. Change brings loss. Loss brings sadness.

And with sadness comes... fate.

You decide what that fate will be.

Ehh? I like the story... so far. :) Although, I just have to ask, will this be kinetic? The story sounds pretty linear to me, though of course, I could be wrong. And if it was a kinetic novel, I hope there's still some way that we can... influence the ending. (Which sounds kinda like a visual novel already. Hahaha!) By the way, the art is gorgeous! <3 They're absolutely lovely. :") Ohh, if I could draw like that... *sigh*

Your art is just great *-*
But the story looks quite linear, will there be different endings ?

Well it's just the desciption of the prologue which is a bit linear but there will be different routes and endings. There are 6 endings planned. And it's not my art it's from Deji and she is a great artist ^^

As always, Deji's art looks fantastic.

The description seems intriguing. If your purpose was to tease a little, it certainly worked on me !
I think I'll back this, even if I don't understand German at all (well... only a few Stuttgart local words I got from my dad when he lived there for a few years ^^').

Looking forward to upcoming news on this regardless :)

The text here is in german but it doesn't matter because it's not direct from game since it shows only a bit of the graphic and technic :D

Nice ! It's a good idea to showcase this, especially the characters' expressions varying overtime :)
The interface looks clean and doesn't beat around the bush.
Good call ! It gives the game a unique appeal in my opinion.

The crowd funding is almost over, please support it!
http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/kako-no-koi/x/2547004

Also I added a new character Hiroyuki Onosaki. He will get a comedy BL route if the crowdfunding reaches 1500 €.
