Until one day, monsters called Nightmares destroyed the kingdom. Princess Rosalia and her fairy knight Diana hid deep in the castle, praying that their last hope, the magical Rose Crystal Mirror would produce a miracle, and save their home, however, they were attacked by the leader of the Nightmare Agency, Druzy.  Diana fought helplessly before finding herself transported Earth, but her Princess was nowhere to be seen.

Unfortunately, the Nightmares began to attack this new world too. Valerie Amaranth, an ordinary 16-year-old, has her world changed forever when she receives the powers of the Legendary Crystal Warrior Diamond Heart.

IT SO CUTE :D (their cookie run oc :3👍)

I love the game so far! Absolutely amazing work on the art, character writing, story, EVERYTHING! I'm so excited to play the full thing plus whatever you have in store for the DLC! Honestly this game is helping me become a little more secure in my gender (Nonbinary They/He) and my sexuality. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to see what else you make if you have future plans past this game. Hope you have a wonderful day Dreamy Pyon and other players! <3 :D


Omg I absolutely love this game! It's amazing how every character have their own unique backstory and pronouns. The design of this game is so adorable and this game is is like no other visual novel that I have ever read. I'm looking forward to all the future updates. Happy new year!

No.  You can not customize the casts pronouns or names as the protagonist and all of the characters are established characters with set personalities.

Deleted 81 days ago

Um well. OK.

1. in this instance, the character's personalities very much do have to do with their chosen pronouns, this is part of their writing and their characterization. it's not a frivolous character trait. They aren't paper dolls for the player to customize however they like.

and 2. it's extremely weird to expect the ability to change an established, non-customizable character's pronouns at all. This isn't a kingdom or god simulation where you are in charge of everyone, it's a narrative visual novel. And it's especially an odd request for trans and non-binary characters. This would be a horrendous idea to implement and would only encourage transphobia and bad-faith arguing that the character's gender's are "up for interpretation". We live in a world where transphobes demand that trans people change their language and presentation for cis comfort. Because it's "weird" or "hard to understand" and it's just "easier" to use a different term. While I am not saying that YOU'RE asking this because their transness makes you feel discomfort, I do think this is something you should keep in mind next time you get it in your head to request something like this.

None of what you said fucking matters. I am nonbinary myself, first off. So you can quit with the condescending bullshit. And I never once claimed all nonbinary people used they/them. Point to me the part of my reply where I did. I would be delighted to see it.

This is about SPECIFIC CHARACTERS pronouns. Specific characters with SET CHARACTERIZATIONS. You can not change this SPECIFIC person's pronouns because in this story, and in this game, much like real life, it's not YOUR decision what OTHER people's pronouns are.

If you read my reply again, SLOWLY you will see that. But you got so concerned and offended over the idea that I MIGHT have called you transphobic that your brain must have turned off. 

Mind you, if you read my reply again SLOWLY you will see I also never claimed you WERE. I gave you the benefit of the doubt and tried to explain why your frankly ridiculous question (how often do video games let you customize NPCs? be fucking for real.) could come across as disrespectful and offensive. Because saying that you find a trans characters pronouns hard to understand reminds me, as a NB person myself, how people justify misgendering me and people like me, because it's simply "too difficult" to learn. But I get the sense that you clearly don't care about how other people feel.

 Learn how to read before you fix yourself to say some stupid shit in other people's replies.


i love this game so so so much!!!!!! i found it from a lil video on my tiktok fyp it had me in TEARS ( not even bc i was sentimental ) bc this game is just. mwah. ever since ive played it and it has changed my life. my skin is clear and my depression has been reversed. the game ui is literally so helpful and cute too like get u a girl who can do both. i love every character in this game!!!! even if this is just the demo its so addicting... like i just wanna keep coming back and look at the pretty artwork and experience this game. if u like mahou shoujo, homosexuality, and good art this game is for u! <3

Oh my gosh okay!! So I just finished playing 3 routes (as far as possible at least) and this game is just so much fun!! It just gets more and more compelling with each chapter! I can tell just how much love is being put into this game, especially with how long it's been in production while constantly updating. I first came across MWDH about 6 years ago, but until recently I just thought it had been abandoned... then I found out... it wasn't abandoned! I'm just so happy to come back to it after all this time and see it flourish! Congratulations to everyone working on this game, you all truly did (and are still doing) a wonderful job!!!!! I hope to keep supporting you all!!!!!!!

This game looks so beautiful!



Me deciding to play this game thinking it'd be a cute magical girl game:





Kommt bald noch ein Update, wo alles funktioniert (auf Android)?

I love the game I can’t wait for the next update


I just finished what's existing of Liam's route. I can't wait for more content of this game!! It's so engaging and well made, as well as having extremely lovable characters. Another thing I like is that Valerie is a well designed main character instead of being those 'blank slate' type people. Best visual novel I've played!!!


I love this game soo much the character designs are amazing Dreamypyon

(1 edit)

I've seen videos of the developer redesigning yandere simulator characters! I already knew about the existence of this game but never tried to play! now i just want to see how the game is! lol

and also because I LOVE magical girls! and i always wanted to see magical girls with dark skin! and all the characters look so cute!! I really have to play!! I don't know what I'm missing!!

(1 edit) (+1)(-1)

Cute story about magical warriors. Choices seemed to me not important, but then I realized I was wrong.

I like this game, but I have a question.

In character description Zacharie's pronouns are they/them, but in demo people use he/him. I don't understand, why, and it doesn't seem right. Last comment is not relevant anymore. Just finished playing new chapters (8-12) and I liked them as well.


ABSOLUTELY adorable game!!! i only wish that i had the option to be a bit nicer to ethan... i feel bad about the nonsense i put him through, teasing him, ditching him at the cafe, etc. 

This game is so cute

Any updates on this?

(2 edits) (+5)

Is this game abandoned/on-hiatus? I remember playing this years ago and I can’t find any recent updates from the creator.

Edit: The creator is still working on the project and recently updated the Kickstarter! :)

Is it still?

I haven't even played but this already looks good


So is the full game done? Where can we get that?


I see black magical girls and I immediately downloaded it. 



OOOooh I loved this game more than I thought I would! I don't typically consume magical girl media, but this I really loved.

My thoughts:

I was initially confused as to which was the princess and which was the knight, but that was clarified later on! Diana and Rosalia's relationship was so adorable, I hope they get together T_T 

Dog valerie is insanely adorable. :p I loved the relationship she had with her friends. All the little inset pictures to show what they were talking about (like when Sophie and Valerie were comparing their Miracle Links) really added flavor to the story.

It was great to see all the diversity of body shapes in the game! Sometimes in VNs all of the girls look super thin. It was nice to see a girl with abs (Amber) and friend shaped girls as well!!!! It really added realism to the story, odd as it may seem <3

I look forward to seeing the finished product, great job!!


AHHHH SO CUTE when its gonna be finished?

Hello ✿

I loved the game, but unfortunately, the game doesn't have it in Portuguese (Brazil) ⍨ I would love it if I had (● ˇ∀ˇ ●)

But, the game its AMAZING ❤

eu tambem sou brazileira!! esse jogo parece tão fofinho e lindo!!


I really loved this game. It feels like a classic magical series with lots of great characters and is so open and inclusive that it puts a smile on my face.


This game make's me cry!!!! T-T The heartfelt parts hurt my poor heart so bad~! The art, and characters are so FRICKEN GOOD!!!! But, is this project still continued? Its not one of those unfinished projects...RIGHT??? I Cant just hook up on a game and get my heart broken again... T-T Also, very good.

I shall ease your mind for my own fear has led to minor research on activity, and i can state that its not even close to being cancelled at this moment (If you already know then i apologize for snagging your time uwu)

I didn't know up until now, thank you for telling me this! uwu

This was adorable!! I really enjoyed it a lot. I'm curious as to where the story goes next, and I really like all of the characters so far. Definite favorite is Zacharie: they are perfect and to die for!!

I appreciated the representation in this game, and I think for what it is, you've made something really nice!


The art and story are very cute, but as someone who's watched a lot of precure, I was very bored by the story. I found myself struggling to read dialogue because I figured it'd be predictable either way. I really liked the designs and the main character was really likable! I'm not sure why I thought it'd be any different from the generic magical girl animes out there right now, it wasn't advertised that way at all, so I don't really have any right to be disappointed. Anyways, as a fan of more grimdark stuff, I wouldn't recommend this, but it's obvious a lot of work went into the final product and I really respect that! <3 I hope this project does well so we can see more mahou shoujo vns in the future! :D


My review:

This game was excellent! Instead of being called a demo, I would have called it Magical Warrior Diamond Hearts season 1, because it really felt like you were watching (or playing through) a season of a magical girls anime. It was lengthy in a good way, and felt complete.  You got to play through a story arc from start to finish, which is rare in VN demos but is something I appreciate. The art felt authentic to the magical girl anime style, especially the transformation art.

Some personal opinions:

My favorite character by far was Valerie, she was such a good example of a successful main character. She had her own distinct personality, and was still likeable, but had her flaws too. I also loved Clover and Liam to death! The characters I liked in order then were Alex, Sophie, then Ethan.

I was pretty ambivalent towards Zacharie. I wanted to like him but he just didn't have enough of a personality to me. I also would have altered his character design, I would have preferred he looked more androgynous, to me he looked 100% female. Some height and broad shoulders would have been a good addition.

I actively disliked Diana and Amber (sorry!). They didn't mesh well with the group and didn't seem to need to be there. Having Amber take up a place on the magical girl team annoyed me because I would have rather that spot be taken up by a new classmate of Valerie's. Amber was also confusing in the game, because she simultaneously is addressed by both Amber and Amy, and her hair when transformed (when you see her first) is a natural blonde, but her hair untransformed is dark brown- it took me a while to realize that she was the same character.

The writing was excellent, the plot was well-crafted and was very accurate to the magical girls genre.

Overall one of the best demos on itch.io to date and I highly recommend this game.


As a fantasy girl, I love this! When the full version comes, i'll be very excited cuz Valerie just met Chandra and I understand it was a lot but I hope the full version comes out soon!

just a question, are there any routes available in the demo version as of now?


How is the progress coming along?

I love this game so much

As a person who loves the Magical Girl genre I have to say you have a gem here. It feels every bit like participating in a magical girl story and I can't wait for the full version.

Quick question: How much is gonna be the full game? With the full content and all? So I can start putting some money aside to buy it!

Voice acting is still not implemented?

it is not. The voice acting will be implemented in the final game!


I've heard the voice acting samples on the Characters page and I think the actors did a decent job with what they were given, and I've watched the VA video previews on your Patreon page and it was alright, though I think it would be nice if the characters actually spoke the dialogue. But all in all, it makes me really anticipated for what the final build brings. Good work.


I feel like im the magical girl... I LOVE IT!!!
