Invisible Apartment 2: Reasons is the next chapter of the Invisible Apartment series of visual novels. Set in a future where surveillance and hacking are part of every day life, it revolves around human relations, their dreams and how to lead a normal life.
We already produced two chapters in the series. Invisible Apartment (available on iTunes and Steam) is an introduction to the whole series - unfortunately the novel is a bit short but many people liked the setting, the universe, the main characters and told us that they want more.
So we allocated more time to the prologue Invisible Apartment Zero; it's considerably longer, includes more choices, routes and introduces more characters. It's currently on Steam and available on Desura and iTunes.
But we want to go further. And that's why we're kindly asking for your support.
With Invisible Apartment 2: Reasons we want to give you even longer gameplay, more advanced options and allow you to explore the story from multiple angles. It won't be as linear thus giving the reader more freedom.
What we have so far
The screenplay is in existence. Characters have been designed and we have the first batch of character overlays. We have some backgrounds and the first batch of full page illustrations. We also have three confirmed music artists.
Here's one of the tracks from Søren Nissen Jørgensen which will appear in the VN and which was used in our promo clip:
What needs to be done
The full text is currently being finalized. We need more music (a lot more); we need tons of character variations (mostly facial expressions) and details for the backgrounds. We also need about double the amount of full page illustrations.
Why we need you
So far, this has been made possible by investing our own funds. However, to continue production at the present speed and quality we realized we need to make our production independent and self sustained. So help us bring out the next chapter(s) of this great story. With a successful Kickstarter campaign we will be able to release Invisible Apartment 2: Reasons in Q3/2015.

Risks and challenges
We have already produced two parts of the Invisible Apartment series.
We also never do an open ended production and we plan a lot in advance. With this visual novel we don’t intend to introduce a lot of new features and we are using artists we have worked with before.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
