ManServant Kickstarter!

Changing the release date for ManServant has given us time to raise funds for additional content! Please help out if you can! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ypressgames/manservant?ref=9vxd5m

In Ancient Rome, demons rule and all mortals are slaves. Follow the ambitious slave Silvan as he schemes his way into the emperor’s court to accomplish his mission of becoming a demon. He’ll do whatever it takes to reach his goal–no matter the cost.

A sexy, kinky, NSFW, visual novel/manga hybrid!

Both handsome and cunning, Silvan believes he can charm anyone, but the royal demons are not the same as his country masters. He must win the love of one of them in order to achieve his dreams–no matter what it takes!

Go here to Play the Demo!

Be sure to read the trigger warnings first!

Features

  • A Manga/Visual Novel Hybrid!
  • Featuring 18 Full Color CGs and 84 Black and White Manga Panels
  • A Darker and More Extreme NSFW Y Press Offering
  • Three Love Interests and Four Possible Routes
  • Includes a Polyamorous Route
  • A Haunting Original Soundtrack of 12 Songs
  • Over 150,000 Words of Story
  • 13 Possible Game Endings

Players can pursue Titan, Marius, Claudius, or both Titan and Marius–four full romantic routes! Over 150,000 words (15+ hours) and loaded with multi-panel manga pages as well as full-color images.

Characters

Silvan

He’s been a slave to ugly and ignorant rural demons all his life. He knows he’s handsome and thinks he deserves better. Not knowing his place in the demonic empire is a sin that will haunt him.

Emperor Titan

The god Pluto made Titan the emperor of Rome due to his wisdom and strength, and he’s sat upon his throne for hundreds of years. His tacit gaze sees through any scheme Silvan might try with him.

Minister of War Marius

Marius’ dark and violent side is easily unleashed upon slaves who don’t know their place–or those foolish enough to try to manipulate him. He specializes in something called the ‘Ecstasy of Agony.’

Counselor Claudius

The once mortal counselor helps to balance out Marius’ cruelty with mercy in the royal court. He’s earned his place at the emperor’s side with his intelligence and reason. Though fearsome in looks, he seems compassionate.

Titan and Marius Both

There is more than a working relationship between the emperor and his minister of war. Could an adept slave manage to lower the boundaries between them, while winning both their hearts at the same time? Throuples are not unheard of in the empire.

Julian

Julian has been a comfort slave for the royal court for several years. He has the same ambition as Silvan: to gain his freedom by turning into a demon. He doesn’t appreciate that he now has a rival.

Aquila

Though not a comfort slave, Aquila is afforded special privileges since she sometimes finds herself in a demon’s bed. She has no ambitions, and may warm up to Silvan in time.

Stretch Goal- Fifth Game Route – You Escape!

There’s only one stretch goal for ManServant and that’s an entire additional game route!  If this Kickstarter does amazingly well and we make $35,000, we will add another route and love interest after the initial game launch.

Silvan has escaped to Serica (China) where all human slaves have been freed!  He becomes the servant to a gorgeous demon lord who’s never been exposed to humans before, but is already enchanted by Silvan.

This time Silvan has a chance to explore things as a free man, and can fall in love with the whole of his heart!  Which is great, because this demon has lots of fun stuff he’d like to try with him…

This final route will add three months to the Kickstarter Deadline, for a guaranteed September 2023 release.  The four route game will be released before this, and the final route will be added for all players in a later update.

Rewards

In addition to our usual rewards of:

  • Your Name in the Credits – $5
  • Above Plus a Key for the Game – $25
  • Above Plus the Art Book, Sound Track, and Strategy Guide – $50
  • Above Plus Beta Game Access – $100

You also get a chance to contribute your own sexy scenes to the game!  This is a big reason we’re running the Kickstarter.  To get bonus content from our creative supporters!

Manga Panel – $300

Get a single manga panel with up to two characters.  Characters can be demon or human.  They can be our characters, both your own characters, or one of ours and one of yours.  Maybe you’re a visiting dignitary who is given a “gift” for a night?

You will get a sketch that you can give edits to before the final art is done. Characters can be in a sexy scene if you want.  You can include dialogue, or have us write it for you.  

This must be in the Ancient Rome setting and is subject to our approval.  We go the extra mile to make backers happy!  We’ll work this into the game however we can, possibly as a dream sequence.

Four Panel Manga Page – $1,000

Same as the above, but you get to tell a single story over four manga panels.  They will all be the same size (above).  You can craft dialogue to go with your story, or let us do it for you.

Color CG and Four Panel Manga Page – $1,500

Same as the above, but you can show the climax of your story in glorious color!  Get a full-color CG of up to 2 characters to conclude the story in your four panel manga page.

Please go here to support us! This is also a great way for fans in Germany to get this game!

Hardcore Cruising -Available Now!

WARNING: NSFW IMAGES WILL FOLLOW!

Hardcore Cruising is now available on Steam and Itch with a limited time Launch Discount!

Grab it on Steam Here

Grab it on Itch Here

All aboard the HMS Size Queen! New crewman Milo Barre has started work on his first cruise. He always dreamed of working for this illustrious cruise line, but his big brother bullied him by saying he wasn’t slutty enough to make it.  

Can Milo prove him wrong and be the sluttiest cabin boy on the ship? His lifelong dream is on the line!

We have to be honest…we’re very disappointed in the launch sales we’re seeing. We expected such a great game to make more of a splash.

A big part of the problem was launching Hardcore Cruising during the Steam Summer Sale. It’s being drowned out by all the other titles on sale.

We had to do this, because we needed the income this game will provide to come in the June Steam payment in 60 days. It was a tough decision, and we wish could have released sooner.

Hopefully sales will pick up. Be sure you don’t miss out on the launch discount.

Next up – Dear Monster

Work on Dear Monster is well underway! We released the Imbriss route to beta testers to much acclaim!

“First off, I ALREADY AM IN LOVE WITH DEAR MONSTER! The dynamics between each of the characters in the beginning really shows off their personalities. Plus, as Imbriss’ route unfolds, the character development he, Allen, and even Faeryn go through is phenomenal! Also, the art is GORGEOUS! The moving sprites really help the game come alive too. I’ve been quite fond of a lot of your games, and I have to say that Dear Monster has taken everything to the next level. I pretty much played it almost nonstop over the weekend because I was so absorbed, lol.” -Vex Vixian

Add Dear Monster to your Wishlist so you don’t miss the Launch Discount!

ManServant – An Edgy Gay BDSM Demon Game

We changed the release date on ManServant to March 2023. This is to give the game a good chance to get Wishlist Adds on Steam. If we can get up to 7,000 Wishlists before launch it will give us a huge amount of exposure on Steam.

Please consider adding it to your Wishlist to help us out.

ManServant is a Manga/Visual novel hybird. There are 80 manga panels in the game in addition to the numerous color CGs. That means you get up close and personal images, like the one below.

In addition to many hot full-color CG images.

This is another game we hope you’ll add to your Wishlist.

What’s the Deal with the Patreon?

Okay, here’s the deal. One or more times a year we have Kickstarters that have amazing perks available. A lot of people felt bad that they weren’t able to afford the big perks they wanted, like beta access or physical rewards.

When you sign up for our Patreon your monthly pledges are added up for you, and then you can use your balance to back a the next big Kickstarter we have. Saving up $10 a month can usually get you beta access on one of our Kickstarters. Saving $20 a month can get often you some beautiful physical rewards like 3D mousepads, dakimakuras, lapel pins, key chains, posters, or more!

In the meantime you can use your balance for all the new games you want. We’re very generous with digital rewards for our long-term backers. Sometimes we don’t even deduct the price of a game we give you from your balance *wink*wink*.

Go here and pick a tier to make sure you have a big balance ready for that next big Kickstarter we’re having…which we tease at below!

Something Big is Coming

Allen thought he had his life all figured out. He just graduated university and was headed off to med school. Then a strange letter arrives from a grandfather he never knew. 

He’s pulled onto a new path toward a strange mansion filled with even stranger creatures.

These fantasy beings shouldn’t even exist–and yet, they’re somehow familiar. Allen has no time for mysteries, but when he tries to leave he realizes he’s trapped, and so are the magical monsters! 

Allen must solve the mystery of his own past while learning magic by “bonding” to one of the fantasy creatures.  Otherwise he’ll never get free!

A NSFW tale of magic and love between man and monster with art by the famous bara artist Jouvru!  Will Allen escape the magical mansion and continue the life he planned–or has his entire world been turned upside-down?

We May Give Up on the Kickstarter

Hi Everyone,

Yamila here. We’re running a Kickstarter for our kinetic yaoi visual novel game Vampire Slave and it’s looking pretty grim right now. We have only 8 days left and still need close to $4,000. http://kck.st/35KdE2y

This one might be a failure for us. I am making a last final push today. If you can support us, or help spread the word, we’d really appreciate it. You can back the Kickstarter here: http://kck.st/35KdE2y

If you can’t support us financially, please help spread the word:

If we don’t make our goal I will not be relaunching the Kickstarter. We have the art for chapter 2 done, and will put out a chapter a year until the game is complete. It will basically be put on the backburner.

We won’t put out anymore yaoi games after this one if we can’t at least get funded. Yaoi is my passion, almost as much as bara, but unfortunately, they are not winners for Y Press Games. I need to consider our employees and the long term future of the company. This Kickstarter may be a sign that we need to forget about yaoi games for the future.
