Glass Hearts is choice-driven Boys Love / Yaoi visual novel game that takes place in a psychiatric hospital. In the game you will play as Kai, a young man who has been admitted to The Long River Psychiatric Hospital. Make difficult choices that will affect everyone around you - for better or for worse. 

Remember that what you do and say matters, and sometimes helping one person means harming another.

Genre: Psychological thriller, drama, mystery, romance


A severed body found with clear signs of struggle. Police sirens, blood, an ambulance that came too late. No witnesses. No murder weapon on the site.

When the police drag you in for questioning and detective Peng throws a pile of folders on the desk in front of you irritably, spilling some of his morning coffee with the abrupt motion, you already knew that they’ve already found what they were looking for - a person to convict. Whatever you say won’t make a difference - but your history of psychiatric treatment does.

The court deems you mentally unfit to stand trial, and it’s not long before you find yourself in The Long River Psychiatric Center, a place people like you are sent to when they can’t go anywhere else.

To get help...or to be forgotten?

Strangely enough, you get a roommate. It’s almost like a dorm, you think to yourself before your gaze drifts towards the end of the corridor where an aggressive patient lands a punch on one of the nurses and gets restrained by two stalwart guards a second later. Almost.

Your roommate - Moyu was his name, wasn’t it? - is a very quiet man. Very, very quiet, unnaturally so. He doesn’t speak or look at you much, but apparently, this is to be expected. Everyone around says that his understanding is limited, that he is like a child on the inside. 

It shouldn’t really surprise you all that much, people are here because they are not okay, but there’s this unnerving spark in his eyes and that quiver to his lips that make you uneasy.

Something feels wrong.

Hello! I would just like to say that from the experience I've had from not only Glass Hearts but Mannequin Academy that I have full-heartedly enjoyed my experience. Now, unlike most people I purchased both games not for the "pretty boys" and "romance" but the mystery piqued my interest. Even though they have not been fully completed yet, I am well aware of the blood, sweat and tears that went into all of your games. You all have very good story-telling. Enough to want me yearning for more; and that is an A in my book if your able to have me feeling like that. Good luck and keep up the good work! Remember to take breaks and have time for yourselves at times though! Fighting!


Thank you for your kind words! We're so happy to hear that you enjoy our games and see the effort that we put into them (sometimes we feel like they're our reality, we talk about them non stop!).

We're preparing two  big updates for Mannequin Academy and for Glass Hearts soon after. This year, we want to concentrate 100% of our effort on working on them.  We hope that you'll enjoy how the stories unfold <3 Fighting!

finally got around to starting this! I didn't even realize that I already bought the full version of what's available! honestly, I spent WAY TOO LONG with the game just running in the background because I love the music haha

I'll get started again, this nurse just touched moyu and i wanna slap her. I actually spent some time in inpatient last fall for about a week; they were a lot kinder than these characters lmao!

EXCITED to get things going!

So happy to hear that you're enjoying it so far!:) We'll be waiting for your thoughts once you finish the current full version ;D ❤️ 


Is it okay to ask who exactly will be romanceable? :D

Hi! This is not a standard story in which everyone becomes boyfriends and a typical romantic route can be taken, but Kai will have a chance to form a deeper bond (and see where it takes him) with Moyu, Xiuying and Lian, therefore we consider the three of them romanceable. Subin will have his own mini ending as well :) <3


I cant wait for more ;__; I love them all so much. Glad to be part of early access <3

Thank you so much for playing the game! :D We are working very hard on it, there will me more soon <3


I'm absolutely loving this game, Can't wait for the full version. So excited! Hope it comes soon!


Thank you so, so much! We're so happy that you enjoyed the game <3
