Singapore indie game developer and start-up Tango Dream Games has launched the Indiegogo campaign for their first visual novel titled ‘Queen of Hearts’. Queen of Hearts is a romantic fantasy otome game, inspired by the likes of Japanese and Korean titles such as Nameless ~ The One Thing You Must Recall, Hakuoki and Amnesia.
The Indiegogo campaign features a playable Prelude demo, and previews of what to expect from the full game.
The full game will feature about 20-30 hours of play time, being composed of 5 love interests’ routes. The story will have branching paths depending on player choices. The full game is expected to include over 30 good and bad endings, over 100 backgrounds and CG art visuals, and an original soundtrack.
Set in a beautiful medieval world …
You play a 17-year-old girl who has just been betrothed – to none other than the king …
You are to journey to the palace to meet your fiance, escorted by five unusual companions …
Experience romance, laughter and magic along the way … but will you make all the right choices to find your ‘happily ever after’?
Refer to the indiegogo campaign for further information on the love interest personalities!

Tango Dream Games is a Singapore- registered start-up that aims to bring quality Western-geared romantic visual novels to the world.
Our name comes from how our visual novels aspire to be fun, flirty and passionate, just like tango – the dance. “Dream” is the expression of seeking to turn dream projects into reality.
Queen of Hearts is the the studio’s first visual novel, and the results of its Indiegogo campaign will be very important in determining if we can deliver more visual novels in future.
