This is HUGE NEWS for To Trust an Incubus!

MMDL was one of the adult titles held up by the new adult filters Steam was building for their store.  The background on the issue is long and complex, but what you should know is that we submitted MMDL to Steam on May 15th 2018 and had no idea if/when the title would be accepted.  I thought we might not have TTAI on there in time to deliver rewards!  But they backlog is over!  Adult titles are being allowed in.

Caveat:  MMDL is not as “adult” as TTAI.  You won’t see any wangs or butts or wangs going into butts, but lots of sexual content is implied in the text and images.

We are going to attempt submitting TTAI to Steam without censorship.  If that works out, great!  If not, we’ll censor and create a patch.  My hope is that we can get TTAI through in 3 weeks so you can get your Steam keys in November as promised.  If there’s any kind of delay our back up is Itch.io.

WE WILL DELIVER THIS KICKSTARTER ON TIME!!!  Digital rewards in November, Physical rewards in December.

Our Progress

We have all the art for the game complete except for six images that constitute the after-ending / incubus spouse scenes for the Vald and Saji routes.  I’ve given an ultimatum to our last two spouses to help us craft their scenes.  The game will not be delayed if they don’t get their info to us in time.

My awesome programmer Vivichibi is testing the preliminary Saji route right now.  It’s just as huge as the Vald route, meaning it’s double the size of the Devi and Harsi routes.  I’m going to test things after she does, then you’ll get this FINAL BETA hopefully by the 23rd.

There is A LOT more voice acting in this beta.  We have over 7,000 lines done out of around 13,000 lines or more total.  Thanks Steve Warky Nunez for busting your butt!  Thousands of lines come in every day.  You’ll get to enjoy some sextacular moaning in one of Saji’s sex scenes.

Seriously guys–it’s SOOOOOOO much hotter now that you can hear the characters voices.  I really underestimated how much great voice acting could add to our game.  I’m actually happy we made the Full Voice acting stretch goal!  (Even though it added an asstastic amount of work for everyone…!)

You are getting 3 minigames.  Yes, I wanted to do one per route, but we’ve run out of money (not including the money I have saved for the last six images, the voice acting, the physical rewards/shipping, and the programming–I’m very meticulous with budgets).  The three games we have are super fun and challenging!  Please remember: we never hit the minigames stretch goal so this was a bonus to begin with.

What does all our hard work add up to in the end?  Here are your totals:

  • 35 Endings!  THIRTY-FIVE!!!  Can you believe that?!
  • Over 150k words. The game is hugetastic. In fact…
  • The Cheat Map is over 100 pages!!!  (Thanks to our awesome editor Emily for creating it, because Vivichibi and I were too danged busy!) It includes a clickable index to get to whatever part you need.
  • 50 Steam Achievements!!
  • 3 Minigames!
  • Over 200 CGs
  • 17 Original Songs for the Soundtrack

You guys got us $47k on this Kickstarter and we put almost every penny toward giving you the most awesome, satisfying, sexy, romantic, funny, angsty, story-rich game possible.

The month of October is our time to finish the voice acting, get those last images and scenes nailed down, and test, test, test!  By the end of the month we should be ready to submit the game to online outlets (we hope, but you will get it in November no matter what).

The Kickstarter/Coffee Rewards

So you have the game info, how about the other stuff?  The Harsi ebook is finished and the Devi ebook is being written right now.  I have a schedule to get all four ebooks done throughout October.

The Cheat Map has been tackled by our awesome editor and is almost complete.

I’ll be getting the files for the Soundtrack together in October.  The songs are finished, but I want to add in some of the best lines from the game between each track.

The Art Book is at the printer right now for the physical copy.  They’re saying I should have the books by October 8th.   The Digital Art Book is much longer than the 64 page physical Art Book since why not? I’m finishing that up now.

Everyone entitled to a Personalized Voice Message from one of the game characters who turned in their surveys has had their message added to the master script for the voice actors to record.  PEOPLE:  Get your surveys back by the end of this month!!  Otherwise you might be stuck with a message from me.  :p

If you supported the game through Buy Me a Coffee, and signed up for ‘All Digital Rewards’ then you got a survey emailed to you a few days ago. Two emails came back as undeliverable.  These people are going to have to reach out to us to get their rewards.  If this is you–COMMENT!  We need your info to make sure you get your rewards!

Seriously, if we get a last minute request in October it’s possible the actor in question has already finished their lines and been paid.  We can’t call them back to the studio after that.  Turn in your surveys ASAP.

We have the Key ChainsMouse Pads, and Dakimakura in hand.  On the back of that dakimakura is Saji, btw.  I’m sorry I can’t mail it to you guys bit by bit.  The shipping amount you paid was for one package, and I need to get the physical copy of the game and all the other rewards in hand before I can ship.

I had to order minimum quantities of all these items from China, so there will be some leftovers.  As I said, I’ll give you guys first crack at them before letting Warky sell them at conventions.  I think I’ll have 5 dakimakuras and 6 mouse pads when it’s all said and done, but I’m not sure yet.

I am making the buttons myself, I’m waiting for final surveys before creating the badges, I’m making the adult post cards myself, and I’ll order posters soon.

SO, there’s your update!  Beta-Testers will get another update with the Saji Route, and basically almost the entire game, in two days.   🙂

Three Routes out of Four Complete!

Hi Everyone!

Today we sent out the beta game of the Vald route to relevant backers of the Kickstarter and people who bought the chance to play the betas on our Buy Me a Coffee page.

This is our 3rd beta.  The Devi, Harsi, and Vald routes of the game are mostly done, leaving only the Saji route left to go!  We are adding voices and finishing the after ending scenes for the people who bought the right to marry an incubus.  Everything is going on schedule for us to release the game in November!

For Kickstarter backers who got physical rewards we have been ordering them!  Check out the mouse pad:

And we have line art done for the dakimakura.  Backers are getting Vald on the front and Saji on the back!

We also have the Incubus Key Chains in hand!  All four designs were delivered to us in June.

Sorry to everyone who missed a chance to get the physical rewards during the Kickstarter.  We still thought you might enjoy the artwork.  🙂

We are determined to have To Trust an Incubus on Itch by November!!  The we’ll have all the physical rewards of our game delivered to Kickstarter backers in  December.  This is what we promised.  We want to be known as the game company who always delivers our games on time.  🙂  Our first game, My Magical Demon Lover was promised to the Indiegogo backers in May of 2018.  We delivered it right on time!!  We’ll do the same for To Trust an Incubus, too.  🙂

Being the one company who always delivers their Kickstarter rewards on time might just make us famous.  😉

Seeking Art Team for Otome Visual Novel

Hi Everyone!

Our next game is a PG-rated fantasy otome (one woman picks from multiple men to date) with work starting on September 13th, 2018.

We would like to create a demo that comprises 1/3rd of the total game. The demo will be used in a crowdfunding campaign launching in January or February of 2019.

We’re looking for sophisticated, elegant, manga/anime style art that appeals to women.

Image
Example by Ero Pinku. We own the rights to this image. While the game is not yaoi, the artist will still need to create several beautiful men.

We have the money in hand now to pay for the demo graphics. The remainder of the game will be funded by the crowd funding, if successful. Interested creators should plan on remaining on the project through it’s completion. We are usually successful with our crowd funding.

Please submit via email yabraham[at]yaoipress.com Include a link to your online portfolio, a summary of your past projects, and one reference you’ve worked for in the past if possible. Answer this question: if you have committed to a long term project with 100 works due, what percentage will you absolutely guarantee to turn in on time? Also tell us if you have ever quit a project before and if so why. Do not send attachments.

Total Graphics Budget for the Demo: $4,000 USD

We require the following:

SPRITES $600
7 Base Sprites (from the mid-thigh up): $40/sprite
40 Emotional Variations Total: $5 for expression changes $10 for pose/expression changes

BACKGROUNDS $700
7 Backgrounds: $100/background

CGS $2,400
12 CGs: $200/CG

GUI $75

LOGO $60

GRAPHIC DESIGN $150

Our preference is for a studio that can complete all the tasks we need with a lead artist and multiple assistants. If a well connected artist can put together a talented team of four or five people that they work well with, that’s also ideal.

Otherwise we will be splitting up the art tasks ourselves and dividing payment for the CGs in this fashion:

Sketch Artist 65% or 50% if characters without a background
Background Pencils (if necessary) 15%
Digital Inker 12.5%
Flatter 10%
Colorist 12.5%

We would not be comfortable with a single artist taking on all tasks related to the CGs. If you’re a single artist please let us know which position listed above you’re submitting for.

The CG sketch artist should be involved with sprite creation. The tasks related to them can be divided up the same as they are with the CGs if necessary.

Payment is via Paypal after a low-res, watermarked image is approved. Missed deadlines will result in a 10% reduction of payment. All work is work-for-hire. You must sign a contract before you begin work for us.

The Harsi Beta of To Trust an Incubus is Coming Soon!

The first beta game containing the Devi route was given out to Incu-Betor backers from the Kickstarter and ‘All Digital Rewards’ backers from our Coffee Page!  Now the Harsi Route is coming out for all our Beta Testers!  This is more than half of the game.

HarsiEmbraceSaji

If you missed the To Trust a Incubus Kickstarter you can still play the beta game if you get the ‘All Digital Rewards’ donation perk!  You can also sign up to get the game when it’s released, or the Game, Art Book, and Sound Track.   (Physical perks are closed).

If you donate without leaving us your email and/or a message with why you’re donating you will not get your perk.  We MUST have an email in the message or we won’t know where to send the perk!

The First Beta of To Trust an Incubus Went Out Last Week!

We’re cruising along on To Trust an Incubus, our flagship game that raised $47,217 on Kickstarter.

playdate

On June 8th, 2018, our first beta of the game went out to relevant backers, specifically all backers who choose the ‘Cuddly Incubus’ tier or higher, and all backers who choose the ‘Digital Rewards Only Side Package’ either on Kickstarter or through Coffee here.  You can still play the beta if you donate for the Digital Rewards only on Coffee!!

status01

The Devi route was mostly complete, but has already been edited heavily through feedback from our testers!  Thanks guys!  The next beta should include voices for the portion of the game that made up the Demo game and another route of To Trust an Incubus.  There is four routes in all and we’ve already got one done!

In addition to the first Beta Game we’ve also distributed the Backer Only Digital Poster and have ordered the key chains.  We’ll keep plugging along on this!

To Trust an Incubus is still on schedule for a November 2018 release.  We’re hoping we can even get it out earlier.  🙂

Thanks to everyone who has supported us!

Tristan dreamed of being a wizard his entire life, but has no idea what it will cost him. He’s the great grandson of the wizard who protects his village and the first one to show any affinity for magic in three generations.

After waiting fiveever for his great grandfather to take him as his apprentice it’s finally happened! He’s been summoned up to the tower where his great grandfather watches over the village. But it’s not what he expects…

Percival has no intention of mentoring him. He’s eager to leave for a smutty vacation from his village-protecting duties. Tristan needs to take over, and that means picking a mentor from three demons Percival lined up for him.

The demons will give Tristan the magic he needs to become a wizard, but for a price! …His butt.

Fortunately these demons love humans and really want to connect with one. Tristan has a chance to fall in love with one of three demons, but which one will he chose?

Spicy Ecchi Content + A Yaoi Fantasy Story + A Dash of Comedy = My Magical Demon Lover, a ‘mature players’ dating sim that puts the wannabe wizard Tristan with his choice of three hot demons.

Three sultry routes, 50,000 words, and 10 endings! Choices matter and there’s a high replay value. Pick correctly for maximum love, wizarding skills, and sexy times!

Includes an original sound track and over 50 computer graphics to illustrate every spicy scene!

tristanindie copy - Copy

Everyone thought Tristan was going to be the worlds next greatest wizard. But then he graduated from school, never got summoned to be a wizard, and became a loser. After years of shitty work in a shitty tavern his ship has finally come in! Tristan wants to be a wizard more than ever now.

percivalindie copy

Percival is Tristan’s perverted great grandfather who became immortal at fifty. He’s protected the village for 100 years.  He feels he’s due for a vacation, and Tristan is just the guy to cover for him while he takes off to the Pleasure Realm.

Harse lost his beloved in the underworld and is incapable of loving another demon. He wants to be with a human and learn to share his love again. He’ll be a kind, loving, and gentle mentor–but he’s all seme (a top).

Karn is looking for a human to dominate into submission. As the most powerful demon of the underworld he can give Tristan the strongest magic–but it’s going to be rough! Karn is versatile and can be either seme (top) or uke (bottom).

If Tristan isn’t interested in sex with a demon he might want to pick Soren, who doesn’t want sex. What he wants instead, however, is a little weird…  When he does have sex Soren is all uke.

FAQs

Q. Can I get the game on Steam?

A.  Hopefully, yes.  We’re working on that right now and hopefully will have Steam availability in a few weeks.

Q.  How did you decide the pricing?

A.  From the Indiegogo Campaign.

  • To get your name in the credits was $5
  • To get your name in the credits and the game was $15 (so $5 for the credit, and $10 for the game).
  • To get the credit, game, art book, and sound track was $25 (so $5 for the credit, $10 for the game, $5 for the art book, and $5 for the soundtrack).
  • To get the cheat map you had to be an Alpha Tester or higher.  This was a minimum of $50, and most of this went to the Alpha Tester perk.  The $5 cheat map perk was added to this to sweeten the pot.
  • On this page we have to round by $3 to use the Ko-Fi donation system.  We round down when possible.

Q.  Can I get a physical copy of the game?

A.  No, there are no physical copies.

Q.  What if I just send you Coffees but don’t give you my email or tell you what I want?

A.  Then it’s a donation without a perk.  Thank you for that!!  🙂

Q.  Can I share these items online once I buy them.

A.  We beg you to please not do this.  Please give us a chance to make money from this game we worked so hard on.
