The first episode of Spice & Wolf creator Isuna Hasekura's three part visual novel World End Economica is now available in English via Steam Early Access.

Set in on a lunar colony in the distant future, World End Economica's story centers on the exploits of a boy with an ambitious dream. However, in order to fulfill his desires, our protagonist will requires a great deal of capital. And what better way to get it than by using the stock market? 

The mercantile themes shouldn't be a surprise for those familiar with Hasekura's previous work, as Spice & Wolf follows the journey of a merchant and his wolf-deity travelling companion. The author also penned a manga called Billionaire Girl, so it's safe to say that financial motifs run deep in his work. 

World End Economica comes from doujin cirlce Spicy Tails and was localized by the Sekai Project, a multinational group working to promote Japanese indie games. The team is presently working on adding additional languages in addition to developing a new engine to support Mac and Linux. Once that's complete, they'll start localizing the second and third episodes.

The visual novel is on sale for $9.74 through the end of the weekend, when the price will rise to $12.99.

This RPG looks just like Final Fantasy Tactics

This Wizard of Oz otome game lets you romance the Cowardly Lion, et al.

It's a rare day that an otome game gets announced for a western release. Visual novels appeal to a pretty select audience, and those targeting a female demographic certainly aren't any less niche. Every once in a while, thoug...more
