if you change your clock back and the registration doesn't break, then how does the game know when registration needs to be renewed?

It doesn't need to be renewed. You register it when you install it. The problem comes when you try to reinstall it years later.

My son wanted to revisit Pop Pop so I dug out my original registration email for it. It took a couple tries- I think the game was running already when he rewound the system date. Restarting the game fixed that.

So the trick works with at least one other Ambrosia game.
