Localization company Sekai Project has opened the Steam page for the English translation of Purple Software’s visual novel “Chrono Clock”. The Steam page contains an extend description of the game, as well as various videos with Beta footage, so it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re interested.
In Chrono Clock, protagonist Rei Sawatari owns a watch that can rewind time for a maximum of 5 minutes. He can use this power as often as he’d like, though 5 minutes is not a very big amount of time to work with. But since he’s able to rewind time at any time anyway, he’s currently using its power to learn whatever he can about all the cute girls in school. Something that he could use to find a possible love interest.
When on one day he sees a girl falling down from the rooftop he quickly rewinds time to find out what happened, only to run into the confession of an extremely shy girl to his own best friend. The girl had mustered all of her courage to confess to her love. Much more then Rei ever accomplished on his own. So in order to help her he uses his power to make her second confession a success. From that point a love triangle begins, while at the same time he gains the courage for his own confession.
Japanese visual novel developer Purple Software has been in the running for a long time. If you’ve been a fan of Japanese visual novels for a while then you have most likely heard of them before. Perhaps through the names of games like Hapymaher and Mirai Nostalgia. Or maybe by games slightly older than that, like the 2007 release of “Ashita no Kimi to Au Tame ni”.
Both of the main artists for Chrono Clock, Koku and Hiro Tsukimori, have worked on art for several of the aforementioned titles. Story writer Mikage however, you might know best from several games by minori, like Supipara and Natsuzora no Perseus.
Release date and editions
As of this point in time, there’s no exact release date just yet for the English edition of the game. A Denpasoft download version will also be made available through Nutaku, though a page for that still has to appear. A physical edition will also be available for those that pledged enough during the original Kickstarter campaign.
