Kosmos Connections

Following a successful Kickstarter campaign, Thetau Games’ two-in-one mystery visual novel Kosmos Connections will be released on Switch. The campaign, which only has two days remaining, managed to reach its $6,500 goal.

Thetau Games says that the first visual novel “is a slice-of-life story all about reconnecting with old friends and forming new connections, while the second is a science-fiction short story that is integrated into the first.” The entire package “explores the concepts of perspective, empathy, and the desire to know the truth.” Players can expect to see a focus on bonds between characters.

Here’s an overview of Kosmos Connections, along with a trailer:

“Kazuhira Hatanaka is the man behind the Soul Uplink, a machine that uploads people’s souls to a digital world called the Datascape. However, when his assistant Nona runs the first test, it all goes wrong. She finds something in the Datascape that shouldn’t be there; something that gave her a sense of loss…” …At least, that’s the story of Uplink Alethia, the visual novel that Tau, your childhood friend, has created.

Welcome (back) to Kosmos, Adelfos! After being away for a long time, you return with your sister Runia for the final week of your winter vacation. With no hesitation, Tau asks you and Jennavieve, the mysterious café owner, to bug-test her game. Kosmos Connections contains two visuals novels in one – the short story of Uplink Alethia, and the fuller narrative that is Kosmos Connections. You must choose to spend your time wisely in order to build up your connections or even rekindle some. At the same time, you are helping out Tau by giving feedback on her game, experiencing a new chapter each day to analyze and discuss. Will you find out the truth of Kosmos, or forever be complacent where you stand?

Kosmos Connections is planned for Summer 2021. You can find more information about the project on Kickstarter here.
