This is a 720p demo and it will take 15 seconds to 2 minutes to load depending on your internet connection and browser. Expect longer load times in Chrome and best results in Firefox.

Check out TsukiWare's demo of the upcoming visual novel "The Tower of Five Hearts"! In this story, Princess Marie is tasked with choosing a potential suitor to determine the future of her Kingdom, and her mates come in the form of kemonomimi maids from the nearby nations!

Tons of cute girls and yuri will be in the full version, and here is just a taste of what's to come!

You can support the game on

We also just successfully crowdfunded this title and another via Kimochi

Expect the full game to have at least 16 unique cg's if not more by the time we're done with it.

Credits key is the castle icon in lower right corner of the menu.

*********************** Update:: March 25 ***********************

// Known issues and Fixes //

-- Insufficient Memory --
Changing the memory allocated from 768mb to 512mb due to issues with MOST clients not being able to load the WebGL application. I assure you, it has almost nothing to do with your physical hardware.

-- Clicking too Fast --
This is was due to a misplaced boolean value allowing you to skip much of the dialogue without ever appearing. It should work as intended in the next build.

// Changes //

-- Background Images --
Reducing the scale of the images. 1080 png backgrounds are unnecessary for a web build and 4000 pixel tall character sprites are excessive. These changes are to decrease load times.

-- Audio Changes --
The audio used were in .wav format and was 105mb in total. This was deemed unnecessary and changed to .ogg. Now the audio files are only 8.9mb and the load time should significantly decrease.

-- Navigation keys --
Due to the bug fix, I have reactivated the spacebar, return, and enter key to progress the dialogue.

-- Added New Rope --
I mintymiyazaki is now forced to work longer hours tied to my chair unable to move anything but my fingers to operate the keyboard as the staff pours melted hot wax on my naked body. Please save me as I am not really into this sort of thing.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

I played Katawa Shoujo and the way that game's interface is set up is really good. Having a log to read old stuff (I'm a little ADD and forget things I just read sometimes) would be nice and having the character models stay present while talking would be nice because a lot of the time I want to have them still there so I can give the words I'm reading a voice. When they disappear after the first line it makes it harder for me to follow who is saying what. Me simple like pictures

Other than that, very promising; can't wait to see it finished.

Ironstrom responds:

We'l at the very least have a talk internally about the characters staying at the end of the line unless until a different character might come on. Though it might be a little confusing for us as their reactions might be less in sync unless we go further in depth with that. I do have to agree that is was a little jarring from experience of otherwise though a bit of an afterthought.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

even though its not long, it looks incredibly promising, I'd buy it when the full release is available

Thanks for the comment :D I hope to update the demo before release. Though if you are interested we are about to release a spin off game demo to this title in the form of a bullet hell shooter game in the next day or so just keep an eye on this account. We hope to continue to release it as a free game to promote the commercial release of this one and just give people something else to do :D
There's been a lot of improvements to the system in the course of a few months. The game should feel a bit different thanks to the feedback from the supporters of this game.

Those backgrounds are just dreamy. Love the music choices, added perfect ambiance. Cute story and characters. This shows me I still have much to learn! All my best, HET.

Ironstrom responds:

The music was pretty bouncy...
I'm thinking of actual ambience next time with more audio sources for more detail.
Not quite sure if the complete game will be a web build, but I can definitely do a mobile | PC version.
Web builds require a lot of stripping... I'm pondering if I should do it in Flash personally...


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Seriously amazing demo I can't wait for the full game. Even though it's only a few minutes long it is already by far my favourite visual novel. Beautiful artwork and creative character development. As far as what the previous commenters have mentioned maybe adding a button to skip to the interactive parts might be helpful for people who want to replay their decisions.

Ironstrom responds:

Press and hold shift and then press the 'S' key to skip to sex (jk)


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Ok I really like the Demo. Its good, Starts off a little slow and intro could use some shortening. Its too long and you kinda get out of it before anything good happens. That said I cannot wait to see more and I hope some more game play elements, (Maybe add a skip feature to pass text ahead or a feature where clicking fills the text right off)
I look forward to seeing more. But will the full version ever be free? Most of us sadly cannot afford currently to support, (I hope too someday soon as I'm not living PC to PC.)?

Ironstrom responds:

There will be a extended version of the demo thats just a little longer before release but no free full version. Also we are working on a free gameplay orientated game featuring these characters right now with animated pixel art characters.

It will feature breasts... I swear...
