For clarification, the full release will stay free.

Incompatible Species follows the growth of a specialized pest control unit, both personal and as a team. Despite conflicts among each of the other members and their world, what binds them is deeper than what it seems.  

Human life undergoes a prosperous boom worldwide. Nearly all people are living more enriched lives, previously undiscovered cures appear one by one, and surgical repair is as simple as spraying yourself with a multi-purpose powder.  

But, of course, there's always room for even the tiniest improvement. Especially when critters that can mutate themselves begin popping up in unexpected cracks. When that happens, someone has to do the grunt work. Spotting an opportunity, Lucius Godwin forms the Exterminators and gets to it with his… companions? 

 [FEATURES]

  •  Stylish, expressive character art within a variety of locations
     
  •  Richly detailed "cutscene graphics" (CG) to capture the most important moments
     
  •  Full voiceover for all the major characters
     
  •  Extra side stories about the crew and those around them in their downtime
     
  •  Diverse cast mainly focused on LGBTQ+ characters
     

 [ABOUT]

Incompatible Species is a kinetic novel nearing complete development in Ren'Py, featuring a story about finding where your happiness in the world lies.

There is only one episode left after the sixth, but it's a huge one and we really need this push! This final episode features a whole bunch more new art assets than the previous releases. We want to make this story the best it can possibly be, and our development team, Konpeito Galaxy, needs your help!

The creator of this project wanted to create something with the DNA of a lot of the things she loves, and along the way, figured it would be a good opportunity to create a detailed story with complex and strong LGBTQ+ leads. I want to give the world more stories like this, and I'd love to see you help me bring this to fruition!

 [CAST] 

 CHRIS GODWIN
       [Character Voice: Kira Buckland]
       Despite aiding Lucius as an Exterminator, she sees his task as meaningless in the long run while making this but a step toward greater goals.

 LUCIUS GODWIN
       [Character Voice: Leo Jameson]*
       Believes that working hard in the niche he has carved out will earn him the praise he thinks he deserves. Comes off as loud and arrogant, but actually crumbles around those he cares for.

*Not in this build of game: current voice actor is DJ Horn, who may be kept as an alternate voice track.

 VITIEL
       [Character Voice: Penelope-Sophia Smith]
       Scatterbrained and a bit dorky, Vitiel stuck to Lucius ever since they first met. Vitiel hopes one day for more breathing room to calmly explore this fascinating, human-cultivated world.

 ANELIA
       [Character Voice: Kim Gasiciel]
       Nurturing and a tease, Anelia’s interests usually lie in the stability of others’ well-being, mostly for her kind and closest friends. Always looks to mediate problems before worrying about herself.

 MARGARETTA HEMSWORTH
             [Character Voice: Anairis Quinones]
       Looks stern and focused on practically keeping the world running and people going, but her actions are driven by the desire for as many people to live happy, healthy lives as possible. In charge of many big name companies while carrying a guiding wing to even those as small as the Exterminators.

 PI-ZAN
       [Character Voice: Darcy Maguire]
       Recurring pizza delivery and buddy of Vitiel, they often stop with the group. Rather obnoxious but content with their place in the world. Seems irrelevant. Probably is. 

 [BACKER REWARDS]

Backer rewards include a (digital) compilation of art related to the project with some commentary, as well as the full (digital) soundtrack. The poster will depict the main key art with Chris, Lucius, Vitiel, and Anelia. Below, you can see the designs for the chibi charms and physical copies of them, the soundtrack "cover", as well as sample pages from the artbook! 

 Note that the examples for the art compilation are anything but final. We plan to get it much more pretty-looking!

 [MUSIC SAMPLES]

 [BUDGET]

 [Art Assets 64%]

[Voice Work 26%]

[Kickstarter Fees 10%]

As you can see, most of the funds this Kickstarter intends to raise are for the new art needed for the final episode. There's... quite a lot. 

The soundtrack is essentially complete and the programming and its costs are being undertaken by the producer.
