A Clockwork Ley-Line: The Borderline of Dusk Walkthrough (Sekai Project / Denpasoft)

If You Love Me, Then Say So

This is a walkthrough for the official translation of the A Clockwork Ley-Line: The Borderline of Dusk Walkthrough visual novel by Sekai Project. The first entry in a series of 3 games. Available for download on Steam in an all-ages version here, or in an unrated version at Denpasoft here.

The original developer of the game is Japanese company Unison Shift: Blossom. And this English guide for The Borderline of Dusk is simply a translation of the original Japanese walkthrough by Seiya-saiga but all the choice texts are adjusted to match the English translation instead.

A Clockwork Ley-Line: The Borderline of Dusk has 4 endings/routes, for 3 different heroines (Neko, Tsubaki, Ushio). You’ll need just 4 save slots and you will also unlock all CGs in the process. The guide was tested with the adult version of the game, but it should also work for the Steam version.

Neko

  • Nice to meet you
  • You’re not going to try it on Karasuma?
  • Shizuka-chan?

  • That can’t be the case
  • Regarding mana / Regarding Mists / Regarding the Realm of the Night
  • I think it was
  • Maybe it was fine with any key?

  • Shizuka / Tsubaki / Rito
  • A Night Realm student
  • The pocketwatch is in a locked room
  • Save Slot 1
  • The chapel
  • We should check if breaking it is really okay
  • The fairy was the culprit
  • Ask Ushio what got into her
  • The principal’s key
  • What would have happened if she had used it? / What would have happened if she had used it without knowing what it was? Could she have used it unintentionally?
  • Could we use it to determine where Furoya is?
  • What were those reasons you had?
  • Kick through the wall of strange creatures
  • Are you all right?

  • Sumi-chan was completely unrelated to the Mist
  • Like how she slept during the night
  • Chase the ghost
  • Did you pick up anything resembling a Mist? / Someone in a white cloak was standing beside you… / Did you pick up something weird and eat it?
  • Do you remember anything about yesterday? / How much of your memories are missing? Ask about the figure in white
  • His goal was to steal their memories
