I just gave my first pledge on Kickstarter

1st day and they only need 17k to reach their 140k goal…

KickTraq (https://www.kicktraq.com/projects/sekaiproject/clannad-official-english-release/) says 88% funded after 12 hours. Insufficient data to properly predict the trending value.

Physical Packaging Update:

[QUOTE]Good Morning!

So first off, thanks to the amazing response from you guys we’ve been able to make the physical version extra special!

We are now planning to make it almost the same as the original 2004 release of CLANNAD first edition. All physical editions are being upgraded for free! We’re still working on our own mockups so in the meantime, here’s a few pictures of the original Japanese release taken by @misuzulive

So what does that mean? It means you’ll be getting a physical edition of the CLANNAD MABINOGI Arrange Album and 80-page physical version of the CLANNAD Fanbook! Lastly, this is also KICKSTARTER exclusive edition, we cannot sell additional copies outside of Kickstarter once it’s over so don’t miss out on this!

Next up is HD assets and ports, those are still under discussion with VisualArt’s. We noticed people were talking about cropped assets and while we haven’t seen the actual assets we will let everyone know and have a side by side comparison for everyone to take a look and judge if it should be used or not for our release of the game.

We do have some other ideas being discussed but can’t talk about it just yet!

Again, a big big big thanks from VisualArt’s and Sekai Project for making this Kickstarter a HUGE success we couldn’t do it without everyone’s support.[/QUOTE]

No HD would be extremely brutal.

I wonder if the physical version will still have to use Steam.

Clannad’s English Physical Release to Match Japanese 2004 Edition

posted on 2014-11-16 23:57 EST

Kickstarter-exclusive physical release will include fanbook and album

North American visual novel distributor Sekai Project announced on Wednesday that the physical release of their Clannad English release crowdfunding campaign will look “almost the same as the original 2004 release of CLANNAD first edition.”

Sekai Project also said in the update that like the limited-first press edition, all physical copies shipped to Kickstarter backers will contain the CLANNAD MABINOGI Arrange Album and the 80-page Clannad fanbook. The 2004 edition physical release will only be available through the Kickstarter campaign.

The campaign reached its US$140,000 goal on Tuesday, after less than 24 hours. Sekai Project initially listed a physical release of the game as a stretch goal, with a goal of US$100,000 for the Steam edition.

Sekai Project announced its plans in August to bring Clannad to Steam with full voices. Sekai Project said it plans to to release a fully-voiced edition with Mai Nakahara, Ai Nonaka, Mamiko Noto, Kikuko Inoue and others, but will not record an English dub.

The game inspired an anime movie and two television anime series. The series follows delinquent high school student Tomoya Okazaki, who one day meets a strange girl named Nagisa Furukawa who is a year older, but is repeating her last year of high school due to illness. Tomoya becomes involved with Nagisa and her hopes of restarting the school drama club.

The original game is celebrating its 10th anniversary and is receiving a PlayStation Vita port in Japan. The visual novel has already been ported to PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Xbox 360, and phones.

Key has produced such visual novel franchises as Little Busters!, Kanon, and Air — all of which inspired anime and manga adaptations.

Sekai Project is also funding the WAS The Hourglass of Lepidoptera visual novel until November 26. The visual novel includes voices by Rina Satou, Rie Murakawa, Sayaka Ohara, Hiro Unochi, Natsuki Abe, and Aoi Kana.

Clannad Kickstarter Adds Side Stories, Manga Stretch Goals

posted on 2014-11-24 22:30 EST

Stretch goal for HD assets already met

North American visual novel distributor Sekai Project announced its stretch goals on Sunday for the Clannad crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

The first new stretch goal at US$200,000 will be for HD assets. VisualArt’s/Key currently has assets as 1280x960, and now Sekai Project is asking them to process it at 1280x720 for widescreen support. The campaign had reached this first stretch goal before the company had announced it.

The next stretch goal, at US$320,000, will be for the Clannad side stories. The side stories started out as a series of drama CDs that were eventually included in the PlayStation Portable edition of the game in 2008 and added as DLC to the PlayStation 3 edition in 2011. Those interested in pledging for the side stories ahead of time can add US$25 to their pledge for the digital version and US$30 for the physical version.

The third stretch goal, at US$380,000, will be for an all-new Clannad anthology manga that Sekai Project will release in the West before it is released in Japan. Those interested in pledging for the manga ahead of time can add US$12 to their pledge for a digital version and US$15 for a physical version.

The campaign reached its US$140,000 goal after less than 24 hours, earning a digital and physical edition of the game. As of press time, the campaign has earned US$247,651, and has 45 days left to go.

Sekai Project stated that its English release will be “almost the same as the original 2004 release of CLANNAD first edition.” The company plans to release a full-voiced edition with Mai Nakahara, Ai Nonaka, Mamiko Noto, Kikuko Inoue and others, but will not record an English dub.

Is this accurate? Fans raised 200 grand for worse graphics than they already had?!

For 200K, we should at least be getting 1920*1080.

Clannad Kickstarter Project Adds English Translation for Side Stories

Kickstarter project less than $55,000 away from next anthology manga stretch goal

North American visual novel distributor Sekai Project announced on Sunday that the Clannad crowdfunding campaign had reached its second stretch goal to release an English translation and PC port of the Clannad Hikari Mimamoru Sakamichi de side stories.

The side stories started out as a series of drama CDs that were eventually included in the PlayStation Portable edition of the game in 2008 and added as DLC to the PlayStation 3 edition in 2011.

Sekai Project added the additional stretch goals in November.

The first stretch goal at US$200,000 was for HD assets. VisualArt’s/Key currently has assets as 1280x960, and now Sekai Project is asking them to process it at 1280x720 for widescreen support. The campaign had reached this first stretch goal before the company had announced it.

The third stretch goal, at US$380,000, will be for an all-new Clannad anthology manga that Sekai Project will release in the West before it is released in Japan. Those interested in pledging for the manga ahead of time can add US$12 to their pledge for a digital version and US$15 for a physical version. Sekai Project announced on Sunday that the Kickstarter project is less than $55,000 to reach the goal. Should the Kickstarter reach the third goal, Sekai Project will get Clannad one-shot and Black Gate manga author Yukiko Sumiyoshi (art seen below) to join Juri Misaki and ZEN to work on the anthology manga.

The campaign reached its US$140,000 goal after less than 24 hours, earning a digital and physical edition of the game. As of press time, the campaign has earned US$328,563 and has 17 days left to go.

Sekai Project stated that its English release will be “almost the same as the original 2004 release of CLANNAD first edition.” The company plans to release a full-voiced edition with Mai Nakahara, Ai Nonaka, Mamiko Noto, Kikuko Inoue and others, but will not record an English dub.

Did you remember to make a pledge for your copy of the Clannad Visual Novel. I am not sure if any physical copy will be available to order after this.

Yep, just got my notice from Amazon that they’re collecting the rather massive payment I promised kickstarter for this. Brutal lol.

I wish that they’d had a better way of ordering addons though. IMO a physical copy ought to have come with all tiers above the one that initially offered it.


#21

As a reminder, if you backed the game even with just a $1, this will allow you to get CLANNAD after the Kickstarter closes from BackerKit at any time

For now I gave $80, $50 for the physical copy and $30 for the Side Stories.
