Hello again good backers,

Thank you again for supporting Chuusotsu! 1st Graduation: Time After Time! We hope you've been enjoying the game.

For those who haven't seen it yet, we wanted to share news of our next campaign, which has just launched: we're funding a limited physical Collector's Edition for Seven Days With You: The Most Precious Memory in Our Lives (aka Seven Days) by LIFE0. 

You can see the game's opening video performed by the wonderful Rita here:

Chuusotsu! Kickstarter taught us the importance of collector's editions for visual novel campaigns, so we took that to heart and this time we've built the entire campaign around them, offering both an affordable but cool Collector's Edition and a premium boxed Special Edition with additional goods.

Seven Days is an occult-themed mystery visual novel that features a cast of dead heroines. Please check out the campaign page for more details!

You can see some of the game's cute art (crafted by the popular artist Miko) below:

Seven Days comes in full HD and features a lineup of top voice talent by Uesaka Sumire, Kiritani Choucho,Fujita Masayo, Aranami Kazusa, Shimizu Ai, Shimizu Ayaka, Toda Megumi, Oohashi Ayuru, Maruyama Miki and Urata Wataru.

If it seems like something you'd be interested in, please consider supporting the campaign in return for exclusive rewards!
