Team Mokyuu are a dynamic duo creating video games for PC.

We've gone and started this Patreon as a more long-term solution to funding our game development. We do all our work in-house and on our free time, which means a couple of things:

(1) We don't know how long anything will take
(2) We can't exactly determine what finite amount of funding would finish our projects. Funding mostly goes to paying our bills so we can and have time to finish our games. (But we can confidently say neither cost nor time will be in the bajillions~)

The Team

Team Mokyuu was founded by Lynn, a quirky trash-can-based life form with a 2-decades-long burning passion to make video games (which has long fought for fuel rights with a 1.5-decade-long burning passion to create comics!)

The other half of the team is Tessa, Lynn's magical wonderful wife with the curse of being fantastic at music and ingenious with creating cool game mechanics.

The Flagship Game



Say hello to Nadeshiko and the Forever Dream, a whimsical, top-down educational puzzle game that teaches you how to read hiragana! (Note that this game should not be used as a substitute to proper language education, only a first step or basic study device!)

You play as Setsuna Nadeshiko, a young Japanese-American girl who doesn't care much for her Japanese origins and shirks her studies. One night, however, she finds herself drawn into a dream from which she can never awaken unless she masters hiragana! How the heck??

Your job is to explore the magical dream world, acquire and master reading the various hiragana characters, solve the hiragana puzzles throughout, and figure out how to wake up from the dream! Learn to love your Study Guide because you'll be using it quite readily!



The game currently has 86 hiragana puzzles divided into 4 tiers of difficulty. You will learn basic hiragana, the dakuten and handakuten diacritic variants, sokuon (small tsu), and youon (small ya/yu/yo). The game uses a variant of Revised Hepburn romanization.

This game is written in Java on the in-house Makoto Engine and BlackBox2 technologies. It will run at 720p resolution at 60 FPS.
