Tokyo Chronos

The virtual reality mystery visual novel first launched for PC on March 20.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:


“The next visual novel awaits beyond the screen.”

Tokyo Chronos is a virtual reality mystery visual novel told in an immersive 360-degree world. Characters with personality come to life right before your eyes ─ their fate lies in your hands.

An empty, deserted Shibuya where time has frozen over. A suspenseful mystery woven by 8 childhood friends trapped inside.

Lost memories; A strange message: “I am dead. Who killed me?”

Who is “I”? Why did we lose our memory? Who is the killer?

Fragments shattered like a broken mirror.

Where does the truth lie?

To kill, or not to kill ─ YOU decide.
