Hearts Like Clockwork (Demo has been released)

Recommended Posts


Far in the future, a war between humans and machinery has left the island country of Japan isolated.

Now, decades after the Japanese managed to reclaim their country and rebuild it, it seems normalcy has returned.

Hearts Like Clockwork follows the young Rin Kagamine as her ordinary daily life is about to become a lot more interesting,

...And a lot more dangerous.


In this game you play as Rin Kagamine, Crypton High School's first-year class president. On the day her life is about to change forever.

The adventure she will be dragged into will require her wit, strength, charm, and a good number of friends if she hopes to make it out alive.

Whether it's through friendship, Music, or brute force, Your actions may affect more lives than you initially thought.

This game features:

  • Original art by Melonie Moon
  • An original story which responds to your choices and playstyle.
  • Many familiar characters from the "Vocaloid" voice synthesizer franchise such as Hatsune Miku, Kagamine Rin/Len, Megurine Luka, and Megpoid Gumi.
  • A world crafted with love.
  • A brand new "Smartphone" system that collects information about the world you're inhabiting, and lets you call your friends if you happen to be lost.
  • A subtle twist on the Classic RPG-styled combat.
  • A simple friendship system, and innocent, pure youth romance (Note: at this time all romance options are girls)
  • Many jokes and references to Vocaloid songs and lore within them, none of which you need to know to enjoy the game!


Teaser and Screenshots!

The game comes with a difficulty selection!

This game looks really good. I like the custom graphics, and they help your game stand out from the competition. Keep it up!

I keep forgetting to post updated here (Since the place is a little dead)
Seems that I am making progress a bit more slowly than anticipated so I'm probably going to release it when I have all of Melonie's amazing busts~

Here's a preview of her Miku bust she did for the project~

Still making slow progress, My artist finished the first of the busts for the main character so I could put it in and see what it looked like in-game~

It's taking longer to make a playable demo than I thought but I will do my best to make it worth the wait~

For the one or two people who may be lurking, I'm afraid I will have to delay the planned December release for the demo,

as I didn't want to ship it with too many annoying placeholders! My artist and I have been working hard,

she's been making many more adorable busts and I have been listening to the feedback from testers and  fixing up

a bunch of problems with the dialogue and difficulty (Turns out that the normal difficulty is still pretty dang hard for the average player!)

After all I got to make sure the game has the

Ehehe~ Thank you~!
Trying real hard to make something fun and cute, and Melonie's portraits helped so much there~

Of course because it's meant to be fun and cute doesn't mean it can't explore some darker themes, but all in all there will be plenty of sweetness~
