Game developer Spicy Tails released a video announcement Wednesday of its crowdfunding campaign for the anime of his visual novel World End Economica. The video features the song "Loosers" by Kishida Kyōdan & The Akeboshi Rockets.
The campaign will be launched Thursday.
Visual novelist Sekai Project released the first episode of World End Economica's visual novel on Steam in 2014, then launched a Kickstarter to locate the second and third episodes.
Sekai Project describes the story:
Written by Isuna Hasekura, the author of Spice and Wolf, World End Economica is a three-part visual novel set in the distant future of the Moon, 16 years after the beginning of human colonization. A young boy named Haru pursues his craziest dream: to stand where no man has yet been. To do this, he needs capital ... ridiculous capital. What better place to get so much money than using the stock market?
Sekai Project announced in 2016 that it will launch the game on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in 2017. The launch has been delayed. Sekai Project announced on July 1 that it was "finalizing the port". The company plans to launch the game digitally via the PlayStation Network and will team with Limited Run Games to launch a physical edition. The release will include the three chapters of the game.
The first episode of the game was launched in Japan in 2011, followed by the second episode in 2012 and the third episode in August 2013.
