Hanako Games is pleased to announce the official launch of Magical Diary! Grab the free demo and start designing your characters.

Posted by hanako on Jun 24th, 2011

We've been waiting...


We've been teased with all the possibilities...

But now, at last, the game is ready for launch!

You can grab a free demo from either the Magical Diary website or the downloads section here. Demos are available for PC, Mac, and Linux, and cover the first month of the school year. You'll also have the chance to play with the character creator and upload your designs to the online yearbook.

It's been a long journey and a lot of work to get this far (The game text now comes to about 150,000 words. You could fit two books in there!) but just because the game is released doesn't mean it's all over. When you buy the game, you'll receive a license key for access to the online updater, which will be delivering patches and new content in the future. There are already a few goodies lined up for later release, as well as improved support for modding - and, of course, fulfilling crazy fan requests. And then eventually there's the next game in the series to start working on...

So come along and join in the action!

I'm sorry, I would love to buy your game, but could you make it possible to pay via Paypal?

You can - When you get to the order form, there's an option for "Payment Method". It's a dropdown box that starts with credit card selected, but if you set it to say PayPal it will create a PayPal link button underneath.

(You can also check out through Amazon, including Amazon gift certificates!)

Only if/when steam actually agrees to carry it. Steam is not an open platform.

If you want it on Steam, PLEASE contact them and tell them you want to buy this game there!
