Exogenesis reaches 30% of Kickstarter goal, Green-lighted on Steam in 7 days

30 April 2014 - Post-apocalyptic adventure Exogenesis by Philippines-based studio Kwan is now slated to release on Steam after getting approved via Steam Greenlight as it reached 30% of its $32,000 Kickstarter funding goal in just 7 days.

Zero Escape creator Kotaro Uchikoshi also acknowledged the Zero Escape-inspired game on social media, where he is quoted as saying "I'm looking forward to this."

Japanese media also wrote about the English-language game, most notably Yahoo! Japan.

"Exogenesis ~Perils of Rebirth~" is a post-apocalyptic adventure/visual novel hybrid inspired by Ace Attorney and Zero Escape games. It combines the point-and-click gameplay of adventure games with the heavy focus on storytelling found in visual novels.

Set in post-apocalyptic Japan, the story of Exogenesis is about former wasteland treasure hunter Yu Sayashi who's on a quest to revive his dead sister. Players have praised the game's high production values relative to other titles in the genre, and the story's themes are nearly unheard of in commercial visual novels.
