Recently Sekai Project released the Clannad: Side Stories visual novel on the PC via Steam, the game itself is a companion game of the Clannad visual novel by Visual Art’s/Key. The following game was one of the stretch goals for the 2014 Kickstarter campaign to localize the Clannad visual novel. The side stories themself were originally titled as “Clannad: Hikari Mimamoru Sakamichi de” and were a series of drama CD’s eventually included with the 2008 PSP edition of Clannad. It would be later added in the 2011 PS3 version. In the release there will be CG’s and illustrations optimized for PC resolution. The Clannad visual novel was released last November on PC via Steam. The visual novel also released on the PS2, PS3, PSP, PS Vita, Xbox 360 and phones as well. A plot summary of the visual novel is quoted from MAL:
