Hm... irgendwie gibt's noch gar keinen Thread zu den "besten Visual Novels aller Zeiten", wie sie gerne gehandelt werden...
Dann hier mal ein paar Infos. Durch diesesn Kickstarter kommen wir überhaupt erst in den Genuss:
Aus dem Top 10 Ranking des VN-Subreddits (die Muv Luv Serie landete auf Platz 2 der besten VNs...):

Well-known as one of the longest and most-well liked visual novel series ever. The visual novel "Muv-Luv" has Extra and Unlimited, the first two parts of the story while "Muv-Luv Alternative" is a sequel and its own visual novel.
Muv-Luv Extra is the first VN in the series and is a light-hearted high-school romantic comedy. Its overall reception is mixed, but some people are fans of what it offers. Even if Extra's story isn't your cup of tea, it is important to at least do the 2 routes of the main heroines (Sumika and Meiya) to unlock the next part of the story.
Muv-Luv Unlimited is unlocked when you finish Extra and while it has most of the same characters, there is a slightly more serious plot. There is a lot more action and drama while still having a decent amount of comedy. Unlimited is generally more well-received than Extra and doing 1 route in Unlimited is all that is necessary before continuing on to Alternative. Feel free to go through all 5 routes if you want.
Muv-Luv Alternative is where the real meat of the story begins, being twice as long as Extra and Unlimited combined but with the quality increased tenfold. While Alternative appears to be Muv-Luv Unlimited's premise, Alternative is much longer, has more action, more drama, more heartbreaking scenes, more heartwarming scenes, and better music.
It's worth noting that Muv-Luv Alternative's story was inspired by a popular book called Starship Troopers. Similarly, Muv-Luv Alternative's setting and plot was an inspiration for a newer big anime called "Attack on Titan". In addition, JAM Project composed the intro song for Muv-Luv Alternative.
If you end up not liking Extra or Unlimited much, as long as you get through the main routes of those stories, Muv-Luv Alternative will be a very rewarding experience. Finishing Alternative may make you appreciate Extra and Unlimited more.
Die Vita-Retails von PQube erscheinen meines Wissens nach bereits in wenigen Wochen. Base.com scheint die besten Pre-Order Preise zu haben mit ca. 28 GBP/ 32€ inkl. Versand:
Ich bin ziemlich gehyped, weil die VNs einfach einen extrem guten Ruf haben. Wer hat's noch vorbestellt, wer freut sich drauf?
