A Beautiful World, where magic is a forgotten existence… will you come on a journey with Violetta?
Afterthought Studios aims to create stories that will touch the hearts of our readers and let them take away a lesson or two, which they can apply to their daily lives. The studio is composed of visual novel enthusiasts who have been on both the reader and the production side.
Through combining their rich experiences, comes Afterthought Studios’ first commercial project, A Beautiful World. The kinetic visual novel depicts the journey of Violetta, a young witch, in a medieval world where magic is a forgotten existence. The plot is inspired by Spice and Wolf and Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, places importance of relationships, money and politics. Intertwined with the storyline will include reflections of real historical events from China, Europe and the Americas, which would appeal to the inner-historians.
Our experienced creative team includes Darren Kwok, who is the author of the A Beautiful World. Previously he has been involved with the marketing and greenlighting for several visual novels and games.
Heading both music and sound production is Steven Melin. Melin is a video game, film, & television music composer based in Atlanta, GA. He has previously assisted industry veterans Garry Schyman (Shadow of Mordor, Bioshock series) and Penka Kouneva (Gears of War 3, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands). Melin is also a writer for Vision1 Music and AudioJungle music libraries.
‘harmonicblend’ was a music founded by Trass. Previously the team has worked on several indie game projects. They are well recognized for their Dreaming Mary soundtrack which is from an indie horror game. They also produced Sol-Akata for Comiket, which was sold out within 2 hours. Their most recent project, COSMOCRYSTAL was also sold out at M3-Fall in Japan.
Illustrating our sprites and CGs is the talented Yuuki and providing a background art for our characters to interact in is Sillyselly. The folks from Fervent are also assisting with the artistic process. Fervent’s previous works includes the hit visual novels Who is Mike? And CUPID.
On the programming side, MysteryCorgi will be joining all the dots together. She has previously bought to life several visual novels including:- Culina: The Spirit of Cooking and Hands in the Kitchen, That Cheap and Sacred Thing. Her side projects includes designing logos and GUIs for a number of indie projects.
In order to bring this visual novel to completion, Afterthought Studios require more funding to do the finishing touches.
