Description


Our story revolves around our protagonist Yamakazi Kusanagi, an ordinary boy whose life was dramatically altered upon waking up in Alfheim, the land of elves, after a colossal Earthquake.

Upon arriving in this magical land, our protagonist strives to find out if there are any connections between a phenomenon in Alfheim known as the universal tremor and the earthquakes back home while attempting to stay alive and discover who is trying to assassinate the princess of Alfheim and usurp the throne.

Or perhaps, he has intimate connections with the very mysteries of the world itself...

Characters


Yamakazi Kusanagi





While he's a lazy ass pervert who dreams of having a harem of girls at his feet, Kusanagi has a surprisingly kind hearted side. When he sees someone in trouble, he feels compelled to help them whether they be a family member, close friend or even a stranger.


He started practicing jujutsu(an old kind of martial art) and kendo together with his childhood friend Kogara Sachi at the age of five, but stopped after breaking a bully's arm in a fit of rage.


Besides his fruitless dreams of having his own harem, all he wants to do is become a NEET/hikikomori. It is not to be though, as Sachi has made a habit of waking him up and dragging him off to school whether he likes it or not.

Kusanagi can be a charming, intelligent man when he has to, and knows how to carry himself in a fight whether it be fought with the sword, shinai, or his fists alone.


Kogara Sachi





Sachi is Kusanagi’s childhood friend since she was five, when Kusanagi saved her from a pack of stray
dogs (which she believed to be wolves.) From then, she has helped him with everything from
preparing his daily meals to helping him study. They both started martial arts around the same age, a
sport that fostered their friendship and rivalry.


Alvaerele Ikeshia






Ikeshia the elven princess of Alfheim, who after the death of her brother she was declared the next
heir to the throne by her father. She is very cold in nature and trusts no one else other than her father
and her maid Elisven.


Elisven






Elisven is a maid at the elven palace (and Princess Ikeshia’s personal and most trusted maid, despite
being somewhat awkward.) Due to her more darker skin tone, she has always been seen as a spy of the
dark elves; thus, she has always been bullied and persecuted while growing up. Even now, after many
years in service to Princess, she is often threatened and sometimes beaten by prejudiced individuals
who still believes she’s only a spy. She is extremely loyal and feels indebted to the princess for seeing
what she truly is beyond her physical appearance.

Hi all,

Exciting updates! As part of our commitment in Prose Edda to improve the Sekaiju: Yggdrasil, we have updated our demo.

Voice acting has reported to have had bugs - It has been fixed. We also have added transitions to the scenes between characters as well as music to smoothen out gameplay.

We also have a trailer coming up. HOWEVER!

Everything I have just mentioned will be a Kickstarter and Desura exclusive!

Remember to help support us on the 15 of March when we officially launch our project!

Regards,
The Prose Edda Team

*reads*

All right, looking forward to the Kickstarter launch. So far, the KS VN roster has been pretty good, so it's quite possible I'll throw some money at this, depending on goals, stretches, etc. Looks like something I'd enjoy.

Unfortunately, this particular Indiegogo project did not reach its goal despite its publicity, its demos, its evident production values, etc., and this puzzles me, since other VN projects have raised more with less effort. Hopefully, Yggdrasil will have a second life, and, if it does, I still look forward to playing it.

Actual critism, or if you're going to take offense just ignore my comments.

On first glance this looks like every other VN made pre-2001. I'm not sure what's special about it, it features nothing new from any other VN, the visuals, given the "starting out/small size" of the project seems alright, but even when you take this into consideration it's on the low end. Character design and just artwork in general is weird, mixing how do you put this, "anime" elements with "real" elements, are you trying to go for a fantasy theme or a more realistic approach? Pick one and stick to it, I have no idea what your theme is if there is even one, and you need to have an unifying theme. I'm not sure how your soundtracks fit in, I can't judge just based on the trailer.

There are grammar/spelling errors in just your description...If your one paragraph of a description already has grammar and spelling errors, no offense I sure as hell don't want to read through your entire VN. The lack of professionalism/polish is appalling. I'm not bashing you because you're starting out, I understand you don't have the capital to invest or to have a team to design AAA quality material, but at the least if you're writing/designing a VN, make sure your script is free of grammar errors and spelling errors.

Based on what I can see thus far, it's just a jumbled mix. Not bad for a first start if it is, but competitiveness and quality of VNs in today's market is going to make this pretty tough, EVEN if it's going to be a free VN which I'm not sure if it is but...yeah.

Good luck.

I have no problem with actual criticism in fact I welcome it since i know where to improve. Now prepare for a HUGE update!

I admit my writing here may not be perfect but i can assure you the grammar and all the text in the vn is checked and double checked by our editor.

The character design has been redone as you can see in the updated 1st post or on our site http://yggdrasil.vnovel.com/new-finished-art-also-some-news/

NEW COVER ART!



First of I know a lot of you are wondering what happened to our greenlight page. We are sorry to say but we had some problems and issues with our publisher which led to or page being deleted but fear not we will be back in a flash.

Second my position in the country I am (Romania) prevents me from going to kickstarter by my self. So what would you guys prefer search for an alternative and get on kickstarter or go on patreon?

Third I'm considering to change the visual novels cuz of a few reasons:

The name is very hard to pronounce even for me lol.
Was in a very sleepy and had a cold when i thought of this name also might have been a little weabo.
Also cuz of this (videos are bellow). Personally I dont really want the name end up in list like those.
And lastly but not least i dont feel the name does it justice at the moment and doesnt really describe much of the story. Now I'm sure your under the impression from the demo intro that its just a fanservice romantic comedy which it is to some degree but thats just the tip and just the intro. To put it simple and not give spoilers away its more like zero no tsukaima(the familiar of zero) would have been written by my favorite series writer Gen Urobuchi whit some comedy and fanservice to balance it out not be in the way of plot or be thrown out there when its not need it.
