ChronoClock, Mature Themed Time-Traveling VN Launches Feb 28th
(Last Updated On: February 24, 2017)

Sekai Project, Purple Software and Denpasoft Studios have all collaborated together along with Nutaku to launch the mature-themed, time-traveling visual novel called ChronoClock.

Nutaku announced that the game is set to launch on February 28th next week. The story follows Rei Sawatari who ends up receiving a magical pocket watch from his grandfather that allows him to rewind time by five minutes.

Rei devises a unique plot with the watch: to find out which one of the girls in school has true feelings for him. He decides to make a list and ask the girls about how they feel, and if things don’t turn out well he just rewinds time.

However, things take a disturbing twist when one student commits suicide one day at school. Rei decides to rewind time and find out what happens. He discovers a startling situation involving another student and decides to use his pocket watch to help out.

The game mixes in romantic dramedy into a time-manipulating tale about a coming of age story involving Rei and his school crushes. You can check out a trailer for the ChronoClock VN below.

The visual novel features up to 30 hours of play, along with multiple routes and alternate endings based on decisions players make throughout the journey.

There’s also full Japanese voice acting (no dubs, only pure subs), along with lots of evocative and highly detailed Japanese CG artwork.

While a lot of visual novels are launching on Steam censored and butchered, some of them have decided to actually reach their intended audience by allowing Nutaku users to get their hands on the fully uncensored version of the visual novel.

Now that Sekai has partnered with Nutaku, VN fans can expect to see more high-quality novels making their way from Japan to the West in their full uncensored format, and you don’t have to worry about SJWs trying to get the game pulled or banned or censored.

If ChronoClock seems like an interesting visual novel, you can keep an eye out for its launch on February 28th next week for $40. You can check out the not safe for work Nutaku page to learn more about the upcoming title.

    Hi, I have a question I’ve been wondering for a while, so I want to just put it out there. I like stuff like Monster Musume for example, and stuff with cute characters like that, and a lot of stuff in that vein that is only targeted at people who only like girls, and when I think up characters and stuff that are either fan characters or original that are sort of sexualized, it tends to be both male and female characters because I’m bi, and I was wondering if I made something with both male and female fan service if it would lose appeal for people who only like one gender. I’m obviously not attracted to everyone I see and I have preferences for what I find attractive, and I don’t like fan service if I find someone ugly, but if I don’t find someone ugly or especially attractive it just doesn’t do anything for me either way but I’m not extremely bothered or anything. I was just wondering because obviously I only know what it feels like to have the sexuality I have, if it would be a detractor if something had both male and female fan service. Sorry if this is weirdly written, I’m really tired.

    • I think most people would not mind if a media had both female and male fanservice in it, because a lot of people are into heterosexual fan-service involving a female and male (I think).

      And you also need to know that a lot of people, especially males, do the “self-insertion” thing (imagining he is the male fucking the sexy female in the medium). Personally I think “self-insertion” (no pun intended) is complete bullshit, but that’s my opinion.

      BUT… for myself, being straight, I prefer all-female fanservice, because anything sexualized that is male I have no interest in, and quite frankly is a turn-off to me.

      As a straight guy, when I want fanservice I want to see tits and vagina, NOT dick.

      It also explains why I like Yuri very much, and have no interest in Yaoi (I am actually starting to hate Yaoi mostly because of the obnoxious fangirls, SJWs, feminists and the Anime media that praise and glorify it everywhere, all while shitting on Yuri). For example, they flicked themselves silly over Yuri On Ice (anime about a male ice-skating faggot) and hammered Keijo!!!!!!!! (anime with female-character-fanservice). So once again, double standards from these people.

      I can say that a product which has only female-character-fanservice will get my money over a product which has both female-and-male-fanservice.

      Another thing to consider is that there is and always will be more of a market for straight males.

      But all in all, that’s just me. I think most people would not mind if you put both female and male fanservice in your product. Just do what you want to do.

        Since I’m not looking to make money, I think maybe I don’t have to be as careful as someone who is, though I still wouldn’t want to really repel people. I also have less common tastes sometimes, so I’m worried about that, though I do have character ideas that would probably have broader appeal. I don’t want to only have them though. I don’t try to design anyone as ugly though obviously. I wonder if just targeting toward straight guys is going to be important or not. I know it’s the largest demographic for ecchi, but with such a volume of stuff out there, I don’t know if I could make anything that wouldn’t just get lost in a shuffle. I know there’s certain niches out there with not a lot of stuff, and I know people get frustrated when they can’t find the kind of thing that appeals to them. Do you think there’s any sort of semi-middle ground or should I just go totally niche? (And I actually thought Yuri on Ice was cute, haha. I haven’t seen the whole thing though, but I enjoyed what I saw. I also tend to really enjoy watching the ice skating part of the Olympics though since they do such crazy stuff, so that probably doesn’t hurt. Whatever floats your boat though. I can’t make any claims on the fans though since I try to stay away from that sort of stuff.) Sorry if my writing is awkward, I’m feeling really out of it today.

        • I wonder if just targeting toward straight guys is going to be important or not.I know it’s the largest demographic for ecchi, but with such a volume of stuff out there, I don’t know if I could make anything that wouldn’t just get lost in a shuffle.

          I think it depends on how good your art is and what kind of material it is.

          For example, heterosexual fan-service (a story about a male finding and fucking the hot female) is far more likely to get lost in the sea compared to say, lesbian bondage (a story about a female dominatrix capturing and whipping chained/bound females, etc.).

          If you produce heterosexual fan-service your art HAS to stand out to be noticed, because there are already millions of ecchi stories like that out there. Whereas if you produce something “niche” like gore, vore, scat, BDSM, etc., your art doesn’t necessarily have to stand out to be noticed.

          I mean if you look on deviantArt, notice how all the “niche” or “unusual” stories/comics stuff is on there? The ‘professional’ comic sites like Manga Fox only shows the professional stuff, you know the stuff that companies and professional artists sell and make money out of.

          The professional stuff from what I’ve seen is vastly heterosexual material.

          Do you think there’s any sort of semi-middle ground

          I think the “semi-middle-ground” is heterosexual fan-service. Because that way, straight, gay, and bi males and females readers get to enjoy something in it.

          or should I just go totally niche?

          I think it depends on your artwork ability. If it’s top-quality stuff, then you have more chance of making a name in the heterosexuality ecchi stuff.

          If it’s average/amateur level, maybe niche is the way to go?

          But at the end of the day, just do what you want to. Because when you’re doing something that you genuinely want to do, you’ll enjoy it far more and usually results in better production.

          Remember this is just my own opinion on things though. I’m not an expert on this kind of stuff so take my views with a grain of salt.

    • Interesting question.

      I think you have to go with what you want to do. I understand there is a lot of confusing messaging out there as far as product marketing and design is concerned, but if you aren’t worried about sales and you just want people to experience what you want to design, then focus on that.

      I’ll be completely honest with you, though: As GamesGoodMeGood pointed out, majority of core gamers are straight males. Majority of our traffic comes from straight males. Majority of games purchased are from straight males.

      So you could definitely make a game aimed at more diverse audiences, but those audiences are very difficult to reach (for instance, they’re considered casual, so they don’t frequent sites like OAG, Gematsu, Siliconera or Niche Gamer).

      We’ve covered a lot of games across a broad spectrum of genres, and the most popular niche/Otaku VNs are usually yuri-themed. Yaoi stuff barely gets any hits and a lot of people don’t seem to show much interest. Again, there’s still a market for it, but you just have consider that it’s a much smaller market.

      • Luca Wight

        Actually, I’m not making a game, I’m more considering illustrated stories or maybe comics. I’ve been drawing for several years now, but I’m not quite good enough yet for what I’ thinking, so this is more of a plan for the future. But there’s a lot of articles here about fanservicey stuff, so I figured it’d still maybe be useful to ask here. I don’t even think this is something I’d charge for. It would make me happy to make something that lots of people like, but I also know that people who are fans of niche stuff don’t have a lot to look at so somebody has to make it. I don’t want to really repel broader audiences though but I don’t know if it’s possible to do both. Sometimes if you try to appeal to everyone, you just appeal to no one instead. I do like girl/girl stuff, but I also like guy/guy stuff as well and I think that might be a turn off for some people. I tend to prefer same sex stuff usually for whatever reason. It’s not for any sort of political reason though. I wonder if there’s a way to make something with both male and female fan service without only appealing to bisexuals/pansexuals and without turning off straight and gay people. I don’t think I’d ever have anything to over the top sexually, but I don’t want to have to rule it out. I’m really stuck on this.

        • Well, in your case… the not-so-easy-answer is that you should really do what you feel best suits your creative sensibilities. It may not be something everyone likes, but if you’re being honest with yourself then you’ll at least feel proud of the work you do.

          Heck, a lot of the games I love and used to play aren’t all that popular, but I’ll still support the devs who make them because that’s what I enjoy.

          You’re absolutely right, though… if you attempt to make something that tries to appeal to everybody it’ll likely appeal to no one. So find what appeals to you and head in that direction. If other people like your stuff then you’ve found an audience, if not? Well, at least you can say you didn’t try to sell out your idea in order to be “broadly appealing”.

          if you want to be safe, make it a hentai game. This way even though your game features LGBT content, you’re not going to attract the insane western LGBT community aka those who always get offended at everything.

          make 2 works instead of one. The first one feature hetero, lesbian, trap (dude who look like a lady). The second one feature hetero, gay, and butch (manly girl)

    Nice to see more and more eroge making past shores. Although, Sekai Projects translations could always use more work. Been playing “Grisaia no Meikyuu” and I’m seeing a lot of translations where they try to draw a parallel to what’s being said. Keyword: “try”.
