About this project

 UPDATE: (4 March 2014) Voices from the Sea Demo is now available! Please give it a try! Thank you!

Voices from the Sea is a story-based game, commonly known as a Visual Novel. You follow the story of Cantus as he meets Maris, the mysterious girl by the sea - an experience that would change his view of life forever.

This is the default title screen. You can collect "wallpapers" during the game and customize the title screen. (Backers feature only.)

The standard in-game screen. The game will be fully voiced. It will also feature fully animated backgrounds and characters with multiple expressions and poses.

During the game, you can collect seashells everyday and watch Maris' various reactions. Experience different scenarios every time you replay it!

If successfully funded, this game will be released as a freeware. (Available on PC, Mac and Linux and DRM-free.) Additional game contents and special features will be available for backers only as a thank you for making this possible!

* Please refer to our Stretch Goals to see what additional game contents can be added to the gaming experience.

* The prints come in A4 size or 8.3×11.7 inches. They are printed on high quality glossy paper.

** The hard-copy game comes in a jewel CD case with customized illustrations.

*** The available commission is a single character, digitally colored commission, drawn by Zeiva.

$3000 - More extra contents will be added, including additional title screen wallpapers and a theater for fun random cut-scenes.

$3500 - A side story featuring one of the side characters will be added.

$4000 - Another side story featuring an alternate timeline will be added.

$5000 - A special Digital Artbook will be added.

* Features mentioned in Stretch Goals are only available on the Backers version of the game.

Risks and challenges

In general, we fund our games with our own money. This is the first time we decided to try a different method of getting our games out to the world. We would really like to offer this game for free so more people can enjoy our games. For that, we need your help! We hope our backers can help us reach our stretch goals and enjoy the extra expanded features! Otherwise, the game will be a commercial release with limited content.

Yours truly,
Mirage & Nitarou (Team Zeiva)

FAQ

  • The game will be fully voiced in English. However, if there is enough demand, we will consider adding the Japanese option to the Stretch Goals in the future.
