As of yesterday it has been confirmed that Narcissu, a free indie visual novel, created by stage-nana, the pen name of Tomo Katoka has been green-lit for release on Steam. Narcissu plays similarly to the Ace Attorney franchise and tells the tale of two terminally ill hospital patients who conclude that they do not want to die within the walls of the hospital. By stealing the protagonist’s car, they head off on one last roadtrip together.
