Earlier this month Sekai Project announced a handful of great visual novel publishing partnerships. One of particular note was Planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~. At the time, they didn’t specify a release date.
Today the Steam store page for Planetarian went live with a countdown. Thanks to that, excited fans now know the kinetic novel’s debut is set for September 12. Just in case you’re curious, a “kinectic novel” is a subset of the visual novel genre and means that you’re playing through a story without impacting its path via choices.
Games by Key are some of the most loved in the modern visual novel community. As such, even if you’re not normally a fan of the genre, it might be worth looking into Planetarian.
