Unsung Story is currently in the midst of
Kickstarter campaign to raise $600,000 for PC and Mac versions in addition to the already-announced Android and iOS editions. If Matsuno's approach to the game's design sounds cool to you, consider contributing.

I have high hopes for Unsung Story; I'll probably play it on my phone if the Kickstarter doesn't succeed, but I'd much rather have a PC version, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
