↑SRPG Gameplay Trailer
Simultaneous Japanese Release!
Welcome to our recruitment center, soldier.
Master Loki wishes to take over Yggdrasil by producing VenusBlood FRONTIER in English for Western fans and in order to do so, we require the aid of citizens and able soldiers!
VenusBlood FRONTIER is a Turn-Based Strategy Role Playing Adventure game. It's essentially a Visual Novel with SRPG elements in it, created by the Japanese studios Dualtail and Ninetail.
Master Loki is looking for strong citizens to help bring this project to life and they will automatically be enrolled into helping to take Yggdrasil over. The strong citizens who help bring this project to life will be rewarded with unique backer rewards which were obtained from our fallen foes.
Thank you for your time, citizen. We certainly hope that we can count on your support as we take over Yggdrasil!
VenusBlood FRONTIER seamlessly blends SRPG gameplay and narrative to immerse players in an epic struggle between the Demons and Gods. You can become the crafty half-demon Prince Loki as he sets out to conquer Yggdrasil. You’ll need crafty strategies and underhanded tactics to overcome the much stronger Demon heirs and Goddesses who stand in the way of your conquest. Will you be able to gather allies and rule your expanding empire benevolently, or mercilessly crush any who would stand in your way? Will you befriend captured Goddesses or brainwash them to be your loyal servants? Choose wisely, for the fate of the Human and Demon kingdoms is in your hands.
Loki Muspellzheimr, an exiled member of demon nobility strives for the throne of the Demon Emperor who has wronged him. To succeed the throne and exact his revenge, he must now obtain the hidden treasure on the Floating Continent of Yggdrasil, protected by the 4 beautiful goddesses of the seasons as well as their Chief God Odin.
There once was a great war between the gods and the demons. Known as the Ragnarok War, this war drove humanity to the brink of extinction.
Under the protection of the goddesses, the surviving humans were sheltered and continue to live on the Floating Continent of Yggdrasil. Many years later, the protagonist Loki and 4 other royal heirs prepare to invade Yggdrasil, contending for the throne of the Demon Emperor.
...Gods in heaven, demons on earth, and a giant floating continent inhabited by humans.
The continent known as the『Floating Continent of Yggdrasil』is also considered a floating miniature garden of the gods. It is a place where the human survivors of the great war live, the continent closest to the realm of the gods. The Demon Emperor Surtr who has his eyes set on that continent said this to his heirs:
"The one who brings me the Heart of Yggdrasil said to be safeguarded by the goddesses on the Floating Continent of Yggdrasil shall be the heir to my throne. As long as you get your hands on the Heart of Yggdrasil, I will not question your methods or your past transgressions. You are free to make alliances between yourselves, sabotage, or even 'remove' your fellow heirs as you would any obstacle. Kill and rampage as you wish, and prove to me your strength and worth!"
Hearing those words, Surtr's heirs, all having motivations of their own, began their invasion of the Floating Continent of Yggdrasil. Among them, an ostracized member of the demon nobility, Loki, has also decided to participate in the prolonged battle for the throne.
To become the Demon Emperor means you will stand above and at the very top of every demon. If corrupting the goddesses said to be as beautiful and elegant as a flower in full bloom will be the key that leads to him gaining the throne, he saw no reason not to participate.
5 invading demons, and 5 goddesses fighting back. All the pieces have fallen into place. All that remains is for him to wager his own existence in this battle and fight. In a continent caught in a whirlpool of chaos and ambition, Loki's own ambition burns brightly.
Create your own divisions, building armies with unique synergies to overwhelm your foes!
Create teams consisting of up to 6 units with varying skillsets into a division, allowing you to freely form teams tailored to your liking.
In order to not be defeated by your enemies, the goddesses, and rival heirs, your army composition will become a very important part of your strategy.
Make full use of your conquered lands and develop them!
As the war on the Floating Continent of Yggdrasil continues, the land you conquer will only continue to grow.
Production of food and procurement of resources are important factors that keep an army running. Build structures on captured territory according to the needs of your army, whether it be facilities that generate more gold, food, magic, resources, or training grounds for your soldiers.
Invade the country governed by the goddesses, subjugate their capital city, and capture the goddesses!
Build your forces and capture enemy territory before finally launching an assault on the capital city in order to take over the goddess' country!
Friendship, or domination?
Will you befriend the captured goddesses, or will you corrupt them, turning them into loyal servants who answer to your every whim?
*Some scenes are only accessible in the uncensored version.
Corrupt the goddesses, and have them reborn as fallen goddesses!
Corrupt the virtuous, gallant goddesses into depravity, and they will become a stronger and more loyal pawn.
If you want a goddess that specializes in battle, you can even break the mind of a goddess, turning them into a mindless doll or even a battle-crazed berserker!
Outfit your subordinates with equipment, and raise them to become stronger!
As units gain experience, their status parameters will grow even higher.
The stronger your units get, the easier battles will become!
The Routes of Law and Chaos
Harmony or Pandemonium? Do the ends justify the means? You decide...
Depending on your decisions throughout the game, your Law and Chaos ratings will change. Depending on your choices, how the story progresses could change...As well as the ultimate ending to your ambition.
Virtuous, Corrupted, Mindbroken...Decide, and lead the goddesses towards a new FRONTIER!
Both the Law and Chaos routes have unique endings, as well as sub endings for specific heroines!
Do you opt to maintain peace, and settling down with your most beloved heroine...Or do you opt to throw the world into chaos, ruling as the new Supreme Ruler and keeping all the women to yourself?

The One and Only VenusBlood FRONTIER
There aren't any other games out there that combine corrupting heroines and deep SRPG gameplay together quite like this game does.
We believe that this Kickstarter project is a chance to show the world the greatness of heroine corruption in a dark fantasy setting...!
Tentacles X Strategy, can we get some love for this combo?
We at Ninetail would like to pose this question to our potential fans overseas.
This game that we have poured our love and passion into developing, with a unique setting and themes...Just how appealing is this game to you?
This Kickstarter is, in a sense, a challenge we aim to overcome. An important experiment of sorts which will dictate the future of our brand as well as the feasibility of further expansion overseas.
Hardcore scenes serve as a foundation of this game
In the original Japanese version, certain more adult-oriented scenes are as crucial to this game as many of the other scenes in it. Without these scenes, you are not getting the "complete" VBF experience. For this localization project, we have chosen to develop an all-ages version of this game, which removes those specific scenes.
HOWEVER! There will be a free patch available for download that will restore all scenes that were cut from the all-ages version, allowing you to experience VBF in all of its glory!
An epic story mixed with a cast of colorful characters
Every character in the story is participating in it with different motives and agendas. Just about every character has personal scenes that you can view that will allow you to come to like and empathize with them more. Not to mention, certain hardcore scenes that are sure to sate your desires...
An epic adventure awaits, as your choices shape your path forward. The routes of Law and Chaos...A feud for the throne of the Demon Emperor filled with twists and turns, never knowing what'll come next...Such anticipation will surely be at least one source of excitement.
Playing this game to completion should easily take over 50 hours of playtime. And yet, should you aim higher, to completely conquer this game, to see every single thing it has to offer...Then be prepared to dedicate even more of your time as you work towards that goal.
Freedom of Choice is what every game should strive towards
The choice to corrupt the goddesses or not...
The choice to adopt a more peaceful, lawful approach to this adventure... Or to take a darker, more chaotic approach, paving the path forward in blood...
The freedom to hire any unit you want outfitting them before freely organizing them into any of 10 unit divisions available...
The freedom to choose the game's difficulty before proceeding with the game, with higher difficulties granting better items...
And of course, the freedom to enjoy the story set in a world based loosely on Norse Mythology.
Experience the freedom and sheer replayability of VenusBlood FRONTIER that no linear game can hope to provide!
Also, Ninetail's director, Keimaru, would like to say a few words...
Immerse yourself in the world of VenusBlood Frontier, with over 50 hours worth of story content, over a million Japanese characters worth of story! On top of that, even more hours will be spent crafting your strategy, preparing your army and taking over the Floating Continent of Yggdrasil!

Risks and challenges
VenusBlood FRONTIER is an extremely huge game. Translating the text and reworking the user interface is a massive and expensive endeavor.
There have been concerns raised regarding the quality of the game and especially its translation during the prefundia, and we have done our utmost best to answer the expectations of our fans.
We believe that you will be able to see for yourself the improved translation quality with the trial version, so please do consider giving it a shot.
There is always the risk of delays that come as a result of trouble behind the scenes. In order to ensure our fans are not disappointed by the end result, we prioritize maintaining a high quality for all aspects of this game and any problems that arise will be dealt with as swiftly as possible, and should delays occur, we will do our utmost best to ensure it is as short of a delay as possible.
Another challenge, you could say, is that this is our first time running a Kickstarter. We have been making games in Japan for quite a few years, but crowdfunding is a first for us. However, we have received advice from various sources including our partner JAST USA, and we believe that with their help we will be able to make this a successful Kickstarter.
International shipping from Japan to the rest of the world will definitely be quite the undertaking. Rest assured, however, that we will ship out each and every package with the utmost care and diligence for every single backer.
Despite all of the above, we certainly hope that we can count on your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
