The Kickstarter for the Clannad visual novel official English-language crowdfunding campaign (by Sekai Project) met its goal within the first 24 hours after its initial launch. This means – $140,000 were raised for a full translation.
Sekai Project, the company that will take care of the whole project, will release the games on Steam (digitally) as well as a boxed game (physically).
The distributor decided to take on this rather ambitious project (although it ended-up being quite easy) because 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the original release of the Clannad visual novel.
