GWJ's own Cory McQuhae, aka Vector, has launched a Kickstarter for a new adventure game called The Floating World. Available for Mac and PC, The Floating World will be released for Mac and PC in 2015. It features an art style based on classic Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock printing and uses unique language-based puzzles to recreate the feeling of being a non-Japanese speaker in the Edo Period of Japanese history.

Edit: If you're curious about Vector's previous work, you can get his other game Final Warrior Quest on Desura.
