Hi everyone! My nickname is Ryou and I’m the leader of a Vietnamese visual novel making group. We call ourselves Millia Soft. We plan on making great visual novels and become something big. That has always been my dream to make my own game project. If thing go well, we will make bigger and better projects.

I have always been in love with JRPG since I was a kid. I want to make games with beautiful story that are loved by many people. In my second year of college I decided to make my own game. At first, I planned to make an RPG game like Suikoden series, but it couldn't come to live due to the lack of members and funds. Then with the help of my good friends who are willing to spend their college’s time to help me, I started a visual novel project instead because I love both visual novel and story writing. I want to build up some reputation for my group and I want to show people that we can produce good story. After much researches, I found Kickstarter, which I think is better than other fund-raising sites, then with the help from my awesome cousin in the US, I'm able to make it here. I think it will be a great place for my start up project.

It's a story about a world that was cursed by its own goddess. Long ago, there exists two goddesses, Millia and Hedria, with the duty to protect their world. But then one day, Hedria was angered by human and wanted to destroy the world with her curse. Goddess Millia had to sacrifice herself to temporary stop the curse then reborn again to continue ritual each 20 years. The never-ending cycle has been going for 200 years until she met Rize, the main character and also her guardian. After befriended Rize, she started to realize the world how beautiful the world is.

Rize was chosen by the world to become the Millia's guardian after the sudden death of his father. When he was young, Rize met the goddess and became friend with her. When he knew about her role to fight against the curse, he found it ridiculous that she has to sacrifice so much. He swore to do everything he can to help the goddess.

Together with Rize is his little sister, Meru, and childhood friend, Serina. The four became good friends with each other and share many happy memories with each other. But then again, it's time for the goddess to do the ritual. The magic she used to fight the curse not only take her body but also her memory. Furthermore, aside from Rize, everyone starts acting strange. The end is drawing near.

What will it be at the end of his journey, at the end of the road he chose? What choice will he make?

I hope you will enjoy this story.

After exchanging words, a Japanese music circle has agreed to compose and record 2 songs for Millia project.


Maybe you have heard about the game Ar Tonelico, a pretty well-known JRPG. The music used in Ar Tonelico were composed using a special-made language of the game (hymmnos). It's not easy to learn this language.

Stellatram, the group who agreed to help Millia project is a doujin music circle in Japan. Stellatram has released two albums doujin of Ar tonelico. We are very impressed by their Stellatram's songs so we decided to contact them and luckily, they agreed to compose the insert and ending songs for us.

They are a very talented group, take a look at their song here:

$2000: The original goal

As I mentioned above, making games is my dream and it's also my wish, my chosen career. If this project is successful, I will make a second big project which I already had some plans for it now. The extra money will go to that second project. Further more, I want my projects to set foot on Japan as well. I will find a Japanese translator to help that wish comes true with the over-funded money.

As the progress now, it will be done in May or June 2015 (earliest) or July 2015 (latest) if there are any problem arisen.

Risks and challenges

As mentioned above, I got help from my friends but I still need funds for artists and other stuff. I have my saving to somehow back it up a little bit but it’s not enough. Thanks to the generosity of the CG artist, I can pay him after I finish my visual novel and sell some copies, so I can continue the project till now. So the project may get into some problems without kickstarter.
