In the spring of 2231 humanity had evolved and a new kind of communication ability called “telepathy” had emerged.
In his first term at school, Yotsuba, takes notice to a girl who doesn’t use these newly developed telepathic abilities, and as the days pass by, the girl remains shut in and closed off to the world around her. One day, in the yard of his home, Yotsuba finds a Phillips-head screwdriver. He soon discovers that the misplaced screwdriver came from a nearby abandoned manor and proceeds to investigate.
Why does this girl not utilize her telepathic abilities? What will Yotsuba find inside the mysterious abandoned manor? The answers to these questions await player discovery in 2236 A.D.
NOTE: An all-ages version and adult version of 2236 A.D will be scheduled for release on Steam and Denpasoft respectively.
Developer: Broken Desk

Sakura Dungeon is a first-person dungeon crawling RPG set in a fantasy world where monsters and humans have been at war with one another for generations. However, a new battle is brewing....
In this story players will assume the role of an ancient fox spirit who awakens after several hundred years of deep sleep to find that possession of her lovingly made dungeon has been taken from her! As if that wasn’t enough cause for alarm, she has also been robbed of her power, leaving her weak and vulnerable. She soon discovers that it was a heroic knight who woke her from her slumber, and after a brief fight and “negotiation,” the knight decides to join her on an adventure to reclaim the dungeon! Together, they will unearth great treasures, reveal secrets and hidden rooms, and recruit monster girls to fight by their side...all while avoiding traps, fighting off dangerous enemies and bosses across multiple floors, and uncovering the devious plans of the new dungeon lord. One of the most important mechanics of Sakura Dungeon is the ‘capture’ mechanic, wherein the player will be able to capture monster girls they encounter and add them to their party.
In addition dungeon exploring, Sakura Dungeon is also packed with extensive dialogue and plenty of gorgeous backdrops and cutscene artwork for the player to unlock as they carefully navigate their way through the dungeon.
Also announced during the live panel at Anime Central, Sekai Project revealed several special guests who will be appearing with them this July at Anime Expo (AX) in Los Angeles:
