About this project

In order to find his lost friend, a divine entity must bond with a beautiful girl corrupted by sin. With their lives connected as one, the only way to survive is by withstanding heaven and hell together.

Since the dawn of man, Ascendants have soared through the skies. To the humans, they are ethereal, divine and immortal beings, guardians of earth and protectors of humankind. But even among the Ascendants, there are those who have Fallen.

Areon and his partner Eden are Ascendants tasked with the elimination of the creatures born from sin – the Fallen. Following a tragedy, Areon chooses to participate in the Divinity Project; a project with the potential to rehabilitate Fallen and make them Ascendants once again. There is a risk though. During the project, a Divinity Link forms between Fallen and Ascendant and this means their fates are linked. They are connected until finally the Fallen Ascends and is freed from sin, or the Ascendant Falls to the same corruption as the Fallen.

At the selection, the beautiful Ark catches his attention. A Fallen never approached due to her insanely corrupted personality. Areon, undaunted by her ferocity, forms a link with Ark. However, he did not realize that his powers will be irrelevant. What will be challenged are his wits, resolve, and mental fortitude. What awaits him is a bigger task than he could have ever imagined. 

  • A dark fantasy visual novel with action, romance, psychological and mature elements. 
  • Estimate of around 250.000+ words in length 
  • Three major routes, featuring three different heroines 
  • Explore Tuamera City in a whole new fantasy world 
  • Sprites with multiple expressions/poses
  • High-quality backgrounds 
  • Music composed exclusively for False Elegy

 

 

The story is set in a fantasy setting. The locations used in False Elegy are heavily inspired by famous European cities and architecture. A big part of the story will take place during the night. False Elegy will have backgrounds to accompany those parts.

 

 

Our stretch goals will always have a certain thought behind them. They're meant to either expand the False Elegy universe or to add more depth to the False Elegy experience. We won't deviate into side stories that are out of character and do not add anything to the main story. What we will do is elaborate on the important events that happen before or after the main plotline. Every dollar above our initial goal will be used to improve or create assets for the original story.That's a promise from the team.  

Our top priority is to add voice acting to the most important lines in False Elegy. One of the best things about the visual novel medium is sound. Having voices for the characters add an additional layer of depth to the experience. At €14.000($15,000) we're convinced that we'll have enough funds to hire professional voice actors.  

This is a stretch goal that we are secretly most excited about. If we can reach this goal, we'll make a prequel that covers Ark's teenage years and the events that lead to her current situation in False Elegy. This prequel will have voice acting and will be released for free on all platforms (PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android).

The complete collection for those who love to get physical! In this tier, we'll add another limited edition: the physical version of the scarf that the main characters will wear in False Elegy. The scarf is the main piece of clothing that will represent the group. Easy to recognize, but still shrouding the wearer in mystery.

Only one batch of these scarfs will be made! This limited collector's item will only be in production once, as a special Kickstarter reward for our Kickstarter campaign. Once the scarf production ends, it will never be available for purchase again!  

The design will be the same as the one Ark is wearing in this key visual:

 

 

 

One of our most unique offers: design your own Wallscroll with the help of the director/writer and the character artist. Do you want a special character in a sexy outfit or a silly costume? As long as it's False Elegy related and not adult content, we will make it happen.

Additionally, you'll also receive a physical version of your design next to the physical wallscroll of the $210 dollar tier.

But wait! There's more.
Your design = your decision.
Want the wallscroll to be officially sold by False Elegy, with your name on it as the designer? You got it. We'll even make it an option as a backer reward!
Or would you rather keep the design to yourself and keep it as a one-of-a-kind? The only official wallscroll design in the world!
Either way, you get to decide.

 

 

The most prestigious tier. Limited to 5 backers only!
Become a character designer, and design one of the Main Cast Characters with the help of the director/writer, and the character artist, 7Aho.

Hey! We're Team geNe6 and we're an international team striving to make our mark in the visual novel world. Our goal is to create the high-quality visual novel which everyone has been waiting for, whilst also introducing people to the medium. Inspired by both Japanese and western media, we hope to create something unique, and surprise everyone with our upcoming visual novel, False Elegy.

The team who made the demo:

  • Director/Writer - Jesse Ang
  • Character/CG Artist - 7Aho
  • Background Artist - ForD Nguyen
  • Music - Kinetik Lee
  • Editor - Anytsdow
  • Programmer - DragoonHP

Why Kickstarter? 

We know what it takes: hard work, perseverance, and passion. We want to make the best visual novel in the west, and we want to deliver it to you. The only things that are we currently don't have are the funds. We've been able to create the demo by funding it ourselves. Unfortunately, it's not possible for us the fund the whole game ourselves. That's why we need your support with this Kickstarter! We hope that you'll become a part of making False Elegy reality!

  • 30% Art - We have two dedicated artists who will be doing all the art for False Elegy. Their hard work will make up 30% of the total budget. We want to show the action scenes and the fantasy setting of False Elegy to their fullest.
  • 25 % Editing - With a sheer amount of 250.000 words, there'll be a lot of editing needed to be done. That's why 25% of our budget will go into optimizing the reading experience. 
  • 15% Music - Music is one of the key aspects of our visual novel. Good music can easily enhance a scene or make the story more immersive. That's why we'll dedicate 15% of our budget to our OSTs.
  • 5% Programming - False Elegy will require a lot of polish. Even the smallest details can have the biggest influences on user experience.
  • 15% Taxes and Fulfillment - We have to make sure everything arrives at your doorstep properly.
  • 10% Kickstarter fees - We don't have a choice.

Risks and challenges

We are aware that this a project with a big scope. We also know that with big projects there comes big responsibilities. The biggest pitfalls for projects like our are unexpected costs and bad management.
We have chosen a Kickstarter goal that not only covers all our costs, taxes and fees, but also covers us for unexpected issues if they happen to arise.
Even though we want to make great statements, we won't make promises if it's at the project's expense. We will plan sufficient time for us to develop, polish and test False Elegy. That way we'll cover the biggest risks for the project.
We will also work together with fulfillment services. That way we won't be drowning in logistics and shipping, and be able to focus on the development of False Elegy.
