During Anime Central 2017 in Rosemont, Ill., Japanese games company Sekai Project unveiled a trio of new computer games as well as a new "BL" line of games.
The first of the three titles is Void, which is developed by Vifth Floor. Void is a visual novel that follows the story of Arthur Woods as he tries to find the killer of his girlfriend, a mysterious organization called ‘The Syndicate’. Sekai Project says the game will focus on deep plot and atmosphere. Its theme song and background music is composed by Vesuvia, the same studio responsible for the soundtack of Vifth Floor’s previous titles. Void's main illustrator is Kareidon, who is most famously known for his art in Fate/Grand Order.
There is currently no known release date for Void.
The second newly-announced computer game is Re;Lord. Developed by Escu:de, the game takes place in a fantasy world where magic exists and the demon realm faced an unprecedented danger. Three "witches of disaster" appeared and invaded the demon country of Saarland. Due to the recent peaceful times, Saarland lacked the skills to protect the territory of Groesen. Recognizing the witches’ overwhelming powers, such as the ability to change the form of others, they surrendered the territory to them. Six months later, the majority of the townspeople in Groesen had been turned into dolls and it's up to a hero named Wilfred to take the land back.
Re;Lord features map-building type gameplay with clicker style battle sequences with different effects and abilities.
Sekai Project did not say when Re;Lord will be coming out.
Hoshizora no Memoria is the final of the three new titles announced by Sekai Project. Developed by Favorite, the game follows the story of Kogasaka You and his little sister, Chinami. The two are are set to leave the city to go back to their childhood hometown of Hibarigasaki to live with their aunt, Shino, after the sudden death of their mother. Years ago when You left Hibarigasaki he promised to someday return and marry a close childhood friend of his. Now that he's back, he searches for that childhood friend but instead finds that their previous meet-up location is now fenced-off and abandoned. While searching for her, he instead stumbles on a mysterious girl named Mare who carries a scythe and claims to be a Grim Reaper. Now back in his hometown, You starts to rebuild his life, making friends and continuing his search for the girl he made a promise to.
Hoshizora no Memoria is currently on Kickstarter and carries a release window of Sept. of 2018.

The first of such games being released under Maiden Voyage is The Bell Chimes for Gold. The game is developed by Otusun Club and follows the story of a rather ordinary herbalist named Maria.

So in spite, she goes back to work to make even more money with hopes of simply buying herself the man of her dreams.
