Romantic Comedy Visual Novel : Kachuna

You are a Game Designer!

Play as Jun Mizushima, a gaming school student who suffers from "chuunibyou", or "eighth grade syndrome", a condition in which the afflicted genuinely believe that they posses superpowers. Aside from that, Jun is a charismatic young man, who is really determined to create a video game of his own. Join Jun and his eccentric, yet talented, group of friends to win the annual International Youth Game Development Competition!

Want to give it a try? Download our demo here. It's got ~5 hours of gameplay. Let us know which heroine is your favorite! The full game will contain around 20 hours of gameplay, and we need your help to achieve it!

 Kachuna is the shortened name of the Japanese title "Kare no Chuunibyou ha Naoranai." The English title is "His Chuunibyou Can't Be Cured". Both titles are used interchangeably. 

Some words from our developer, Nyanime: 

The 'Sakurasou' story was the initial inspiration for Kachuna. The antics of the main cast brought me great laughter and joy. Their memories of game development melted my heart. Because of that, Kachuna's story is about game development.

I want Kachuna to inspire the same feelings I felt for Sakurasou. I want the audience to laugh, cry, and smile. I want the audience to say "This game was good" and make memories of their own.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest challenge is getting the campaign completely funded, with stretch goals included. Though this is our first project, we are dedicated to delivering a complete game to your hands. The demo was created and funded with the help of Nyanime, a founding member of Tamaya Kagiya.

This campaign aims to fund the rest of the content, so the game can be finished. If this campaign doesn’t get funded, we will wait 2-3 months before we release another Kickstarter. This will push back the deadline, but the game will be completed. The biggest risk is a delay in delivering backer rewards.
