Anime Studio Simulator is a visual novel with simulation elements in which the player manages an anime studio.
You’ll play as Yukari, the team’s director. Your role is to guide your team by deciding on the best course of action to produce your own anime series. Other factors will come into play as well, such as outsourcing work and dealing with random events.
It’ll be a tough journey for your team, especially since they lack experience. Furthermore, they’ll have to battle deadlines, stress, limited funds, and more. Can you guide them past all obstacles to successful create an anime?
Yukari is a teenage girl who recently graduated from high school. However, she has important plans for her vacation: making her own ANIME!
With newly-gained investment funds and the help of her friends, she hopes to turn her dream into reality. Will Yukari and her team make an unforgettable impression on the anime industry... or collapse from the pressure of creating their own anime series?
Anime Studio Simulator features choice-driven gameplay, which affects the story and ending. It will have about (4-6) different endings depending on the actions you take and how well you produce your anime.
Random events occur in the game based on the state of your team and your anime series. This will provide additional replay value beyond the multiple endings.
While progress on Anime Studio Simulator is coming along well, we require additional funds to deliver a complete and polished game. These funds will be used to pay the people working on this project and cover the Kickstarter fees.

Risks and challenges
We understand that developing games is tough and always carries some form of risk. However, we’ve had experience developing games such as Make the Path and Detective Cat on iOS in the past. Therefore, we have a better idea of the importance of budgeting and how to manage a project.
Programming for Anime Studio Simulator’s engine is mostly complete. We’re looking at a release date somewhere between September and October 2016.
