“Dies irae” Visual Novel Kickstarter Successfully Funded

Last month we posted about the Kickstarter campaign for Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~, which aims to bring the visual novel to Steam in English-localized form. Now, with just a few hours left to go until deadline, the crowdfunding effort is well above its initial goal of $160,000. 


At the time of this writing the Dies irae Kickstarter is really close to hitting $200k. Estimated delivery of the game and backer rewards is this May. 


There’s also a crowdfunded anime adaptation that’s set to debut this fall.


Here’s another look at the game’s pitch video for those who missed it:
