Ratalaika Games have announced their latest game for the Nintendo Switch: Kosmos Connections, a “Two-in-One Visual Novel” developed by Thetau Games. But unlike their other projects, this one has to go through the Kickstarter phase first: the developers need $12 500, and $2 413 have been pledged as of writing. Click here to check out the campaign (which runs until February 25th).
Here’s the Kickstarter trailer, some details and some screenshots for the game:
Kosmos Connections places you in the shoes of Adelfos (or whatever you choose to name him) during his last week of winter vacation as he visits his hometown of Kosmos after departing eight years ago. During his absence, Adelfos’ best friend, Tau Theta, has created her own visual novel by the name of Uplink Alethia. However, as Adelfos and his sister Runia play more and more of this game, the more Tau’s intentions behind its creation are called into question.
