"Broken Hearts' Resort" is a short gay romance visual novel about two friends working together at the iconic Broken Hearts' Resort in Hawaii.

Julian has been single for a while, and in love with his manager, Jake. However, Jake has gone through a powerful heartbreak himself, and stayed single ever since. After giving him more than enough time, Julian got tired of waiting, and decided to take things in his own hands, and finally find a proper date.

His attempts to schedule one are interrupted by different things going on at the resort. There's no shortage of guests and each one of them has a difficult story, some very triggering. Will Julian manage to overcome bad luck that seems to surround him, and get a chance with Jake? Or is he doomed to get his heart broken like everyone else?

Player's Age: 16+.

Trigger Warnings: singlehood, relationship drama (rejections, break-ups, abuse, cheating, etc.), toxic people, toxic attitudes toward love, judgmental and impatient  main character.


Julian is a young man who received the post at the Broken Hearts' Resort thanks to his uncle, Mr. Swartz. He hasn't been through any kind of heartbreak yet, even though he feels annoyed about his unrequited crush for his manager, Jake.

Jake has been working at the Broken Hearts' Resort for a while already, and he's the one solving important problems at the venue, such as for example theft. After getting his heart broken by his ex, he hasn't dated much, but perhaps, Julian can make him change his mind...

Apart from Julian and Jake, there are 10 more characters: 8 guests and 2 visitors. What stories do they have? Is Julian able to help anybody with his advice, despite having been single forever?


  • ~5000 words of professionally written and edited text.
  • Linear storyline with 8 choices and 2 endings:
    • 5 “true” choices that decide which ending you get,
    • 3 “phantom” choices (choices that display a slightly altered version of the dialogue or inner monologue but don’t really affect the main plot),
    • 2 endings: Good End and Bad End.
  • 12 colorful characters: 1 main character (Julian), 1 dateable love interest (Jake), and 10 side characters (hotel guests, family), all with complex backstories.
  • Guestbook screen with unlockable character portraits, to remind you of the guests and visitors that you’ve already met at the Broken Hearts’ Resort.
  • Tropical game interface with souvenirs from the Hawaii (tickets, leaflets, posters).
  • 15 stylish backgrounds showing various places at the resort: the main character's room, his uncle's room, corridors, restaurant, common room, garden, beach, and others!
  • A soundtrack consisting of 8 pieces of music: an old-style, jazzy main theme by Kevin MacLeod and a quiet, tropical, lofi chillhop in-game soundtrack by DreamHeaven.
  • Bonus: After purchasing the game, you can download a free cheatsheet to make sure you don’t get a bad ending (or to get a bad ending on purpose, if you're curious!).

Hello, we just stumbled across this game on VNDB and would like to offer our translation services into German for it. 5000 words is not really a time-consuming project, so we could negotiate something quick, so you get easier access to the German audience that might stumble over your game and become curious about the German translation. It might help push sales forward in a different language market!

If you're interested, send us a DM on Discord or a mail at business@mimir-translations.org

Regards,

Mimir Translations

Hi Mimir Translations!
