THESE ARE NOT OFFICIAL RELEASE DATES.
Heart’s Choice Games are LARGELY GENDERLOCKED. There are reasons for this. This is not the time, place, or forum topic to discuss the wisdom or fairness of genderlocking. We would publish a game genderlocked to male romancing women, but we have not yet received a pitch for such a game from an author.
