Description
Release date: 2017
Koe (声) is a JRPG which introduces you to the Japanese language through traditional gameplay elements found in classic and modern Japanese role-playing games.

Begin your journey as a high school exchange student ready to take on their senior year in the small Japanese town of Sakuracho. Use your words to fight and progress your way through the story, and save Koe and Sakuracho with the mysterious princess Fleur who has nowhere else to turn to. Your time in the real world will be spent learning new words, phrases and basic grammar rules. All of this will become your power in the fantasy world of Koe, where you'll need to save and fight alongside your friends to uncover the mysteries of a broken kingdom, a falling empire and the volatile crystals.

By combining communicative language learning theory and game design, Koe makes language the weapon, armour and magic you need to use in and out of battle. Every phonetic Japanese character or 'Kana' has its own levels, power and usability, you'll need to remember and use the words you've learned to attack, defend, and heal your team to save the world.

We'll be updating (and releasing all future alphas through) this page in June. Backers- this means this will be our primary distribution platform and you'll need to come here to download the game instead of our website as we've done in the past.

I have been following this game for a long time. I wish I had known about the kickstarter so that I could have backed it. I love the concept of the game and can't wait for it to come out.

Punch enemies to death with a t-shirt? You wouldn't happen to be a dev for this game would you? ;)

Koe simply acts as an introduction to the language, but a lot of support is given in-game to further your studies past the gameplay and story.
