The heroine is a cat in a retro-futuristic world who loves good food and, with her fellow animal friends, is willing to do anything for it. Namely, stealing. She also happens to be the gang leader. Their activities disturbed the lives of people in the city to the point that the authorities decided to take action. One day, her best friend is taken hostage in hopes of luring her out. Taking the bait, she goes ahead of the pack to rescue him, meeting with a few good souls who saved her from trouble along the way. After the rescue mission, she realizes that her selfishness of stealing food has brought harm upon her friends and thus she decides to disband the group. To earn food honestly, she wishes to become a human. Her prayers were answered by an unseeming Fairy Godfather on one condition – that she would never steal again. With her immediate agreement, she is turned human. Now, as a newly-turned human, all she needs to do is find her bearings in this brave new world. And who better to help her than those who saved her earlier on?
Purrfectly Ever After is an upcoming English otome game by new indie visual novel developer, Weeev. With Purrfectly Ever After, Weeev aims to bridge the gap between Japanese-centric otome games, told in a not-so-Japanese point of view and storyline.
As stated by Weeev:
“We want every girl (or guy) to be able to relate to the story. Our aim is to be on par with the likes of other otome game giants such as Voltage, Otomate and Rejet and we strive to provide the best storyline, artwork and most importantly, experience to our players. We want you to gasp at a twist, smile at a sweet moment, but ultimately, we want to touch your heart with our stories. One of the efforts to enhance the gaming experience is to have the in-game dialogue voiced with Japanese voice actors. We put a lot of thought into quality control over the artwork, so we hope that you’ll give us a chance to share our stories with you.”
In order to give the product that Weeev wishes, they need a sum of AUD 9,700, approxomately USD7,555. Kickstarter has helped visual novels get successfully funded in the past, and Weeev hopes to achieve the same success.
