About

Compass of Dei Gratia -On the Fifth Day- is an indie visual novel originally created and released in Japan in 2015 by indie developer Catalyst. A thriller/mystery/science fiction visual novel depicting the story of a group of survivors trapped in a sunken submersible, Compass of Dei Gratia is an homage to famous science-fiction visual novels such as Ever17 -Out of Infinity-. Although this is an indie title, the captivating story content and length are celebrated to be on par with many major visual novels releases in the genre.

We are Lemnisca LLC, a Japanese to English localization company! In the past, we have performed the localization for various visual novels, including Root Double -Before Crime * After Days- Xtend Edition, Dies irae ~Interview with Kaziklu Bey, and Raging Loop. Compass of Dei Gratia, however, marks our very first effort into publishing! In addition to the localization, we will be releasing the game on Steam and, if the stretch goal is funded, for the Nintendo Switch, too!

Unravel the mystery of what truly happened on the sunken vessel <SHEEP III> from multiple angles with three different routes spanning approximately 20-25+ hours worth of suspenseful story!

Lemnisca has worked solely assisting other companies with localization up to this point, but this our first time taking on the task of publishing a title.

We’re very excited about this prospect, but to take up publishing means that we require funding in order to cover the costs of localizing and distributing the game itself.

And what’s more, Compass of Dei Gratia is about 1 million Japanese characters in length.

For those unaware, that is about the length of a standard commercial visual novel — highly ambitious for an indie visual novel!

What this means is that the scope of the localization increases with the scope of the story, and to accompany that length, localization costs exceeding a regular indie title are necessary.

We would love more than anything to share this incredible title with all of you, but in order to do that, we need your help!

  • 52% - Localization Fees
     
  • 10% - Kickstarter and Payment Fees
     
  • 2%  - Backerkit Fees
     
  • 36% -  Backer Rewards Fulfillment and Production

$65,000 = Additional CGs!

This book will be integrated into the fanbook to create a one-of-a-kind tome filled with development notes, lore, and all things design!

$130,000 = Nintendo Switch version! 

With this goal reached, we will be able to port the game onto Nintendo Switch so you can solve the mystery wherever you travel!

Q: How will communication be handled after the Kickstarter campaign ends?

A: We will work hard to give as many weekly - monthly updates as possible. We at Lemnisca believe that clear communication is essential to building trust in the community.

Q: I have questions in regards to certain tiers or the Kickstarter itself. Where can I get these questions answered?

      A: Feel free to comment via Kickstarter’s comment system and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!

(日本語訳)

キックスターターについて

「デイグラシアの羅針盤」は同人サークル「カタリスト」が制作し、2015年、日本にて発売されたADVゲームです。深海サスペンスADVというジャンルで、海の底に沈んだ潜水艦に閉じこまれた生存者達の物語を描かれています。

我々レムニスカ社はゲーム翻訳を主に行う会社です。実績として「ルートダブル」、「Dies irae ~Interview with Kaziklu Bey~」また、現在進行形として「レイジングループ」等、様々なゲームを日本語から英語に翻訳しています。

今回の「デイグラシアの羅針盤」は初めてパブリッシングにチャレンジします。英語版を翻訳し、Steamにて発売し、もしストレッチゴールが達成したら、任天堂Switch英語版も発売します。

ストーリー

「どうすれば、彼女たちは生きてあの海を出ることができたのか。
     もし、違う選択をすれば、結果は変わっていたのか」

     2033年8月1日、
     深海遊覧船は水深700mの海底に沈んだ。

     一瞬にして失われた50名の生命。
     残された者たちは、閉ざされた深海で生存への道を模索する。

     だが、その水底には、彼らが予想もしなかった脅威が潜んでいた。

     “二人の生存者”の片割れは、
     繰り返す記録と記憶の果てに、彼女たちを救うことができるのか。


     「生存者を決めるのは、あなたです」

     これは正解のないノベルゲーム。


ゲームプレイについて

<SHEEPⅢ>内の4日間に起こったという謎を、様々な視点から解き明かします。


なぜキックスターターを?

今までレムニスカはローカライゼーションのみ参加していましたが、今回初めてゲーム発売にチャレンジします

パブリッシュするためにローカライゼーション費用及び発売に関する費用を支払うために、資金が必要です。

さらに、「デイグラシアの羅針盤」の長さは約100万文字。

それは普通のADVの長さで、同人ゲームとしては、かなりの長編です。

つまり、翻訳費用はストーリーの長さに比例しますで、その規模を補う為に、通常の同人ゲームよりも多くの翻訳費用が必然となります。

心からこの素晴らしいゲームを翻訳して世界の皆様にプレイして頂きたいと願うのですが、達成する為に、みんなの支援が必然です。


キックスターター費用分配

    52% - ローカライゼーション費用


    10% - キックスターター使用費用


    2%  - BackerKit使用費用


    36% -  リワード制作費用

Risks and challenges

As mentioned before, this is Lemnisca's very first foray into publishing, and with it, managing a Kickstarter, too. While we strive to keep you constantly updated on the progress of the project and the rewards, there is always the risk of delays or schedule changes along the way. We will always do our best to keep backers informed of what’s going on with both the Kickstarter and the localization process.
