From the Novel Description:

Demetri messed up in the military and now must serve as a miner on Earth’s ally planet Secren. This is the last place he wants to be. Earth men are considered small and cute to the violent Secren men. Demetri already ran a mine on the ice world Donovan. This gives him enough notoriety for mine overlord Malstrum to take an interest in him.

It seems cut and dry that he’s going to rebuff Malstrum and make it on his own, but Secren is a brutal world. The male population are all slave miners desperate to reach their quotas. As an Earthling Demetri is an easy mark to get robbed or killed.

Giving in to Malstrum is the only way Demetri can survive. The charismatic mine overlord decides to make it easy for him.

In the Maelstrom game Demetri can date Maelstrom (aka Helix), a member of the Flurry gang, or the diabolical viceroy of planet Secren, Zheng Li. There is an additional route of the game that unlocks where Maelstrom and Zheng Li date!

The game will be 16+. Sex scenes will happen off camera with loads of intimacy being built up beforehand.

Maelstrom should release by March 2021! Join the Discord to keep up with all the news and get all the steamy preview images!

Alpha Hole Prison – Gay Yaoi Bara Prison Game

Hello Awesome Supporters,

Games are crazy expensive to make, that’s why we are doing advance crowdfunding on our most expensive game: Alpha Hole Prison.

If you haven’t played the incredibly hot uncensored demo, you don’t know what you’re missing!  This is the HOTTEST yaoi/bara game we’ve made yet. GO HERE: https://ypressgames.itch.io/alpha-hole-prison

We need your help.  Our cash reserves to continue working on this game are gone, and we’ve still got 37 image sets to go–not to mention voice acting!

Play the demo and you’ll see that this is a game you HAVE to have.  And then please consider preordering the game and perks on Itch.  You can also put your perk on Layaway through our Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/ypressgames

Through Patreon you can make small monthly payments so you can claim a big reward from one of our campaigns later on. We’ll be launching a Kickstarter in October, once the Mister Versatile rewards are delivered (Mister Versatile should be out by October 15th.)  If you can’t support us today, we hope you’ll support the Kickstarter when it launches: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ypressgames/212061860?ref=1f7ljq&token=6546a041

If you can support us now it would be really helpful.  Every little bit counts!  This is a great game, and you won’t regret supporting us.  Y Press Games never delivers a crowdfunding reward late, after all!

Alpha Hole Prison Fund Raising

​Hi Everyone!

First off, Mister Versatile ended with $35,500!  Do you know what that means?  We made more on the Mister Versatile Kickstarter during Covid-19 than we did on Morningdew Farms during the peak of the economy!  That was amazing!

Thanks to all of you who supported us, thanks to all of you who plan to support us in the future, and thanks to everyone for putting up with my advertising for the Kickstarter!

Studio Kosen is handling most of the work to create Mister Versatile, and are humming along at a rapid pace.  They’re on track to get the game out early.  That means our core team is free to focus on our in-house project, Alpha Hole Prison

Alpha Hole is a huge project for us.  It’s about thrice the size of To Trust an Incubus, and has animated sex scenes, something we’ve never pulled off before.  You can download the demo game here to check it out:  https://ypressgames.itch.io/alpha-hole-prison-demo

This huge game comes with a huge price tag:  $50,000.

Now, Y Press Games isn’t a struggling company by any means.  We pay our creators well and we keep a cash reserve–but it’s not even close to what we’ll need to make this game.​

We never start a Kickstarter until all the rewards for the prior Kickstarter are delivered, but with Covid-19 and with the huge amount of money we need for this game, we had to start crowdfunding as early as possible.

We’ve started this two ways:

1. An Itch.io campaign​ with numerous rewards to pick from.

2. A Patreon​ where you can make monthly payments toward the perk you want.

All the money earned in this early campaigning will be deducted from the $50,000 goal for when we launch the Kickstarter.​  It will be a lot easier to have a successful Kickstarter asking for $20,000 instead of $50,000.

The Itch.io campaign​ will run until July or August.  The Patreon​ will continue indefinitely.  You can store savings up to get perks on our next games once you get what you want from Alpha Hole.  We always put out one gay game a year unless there’s a catastrophic problem.  In which case we would be completely transparent with you–we always are!

Please consider supporting Alpha Hole Prison.  These regular Itch payments​ are what we’re using to pay our artists.  If you want to wait until the Kickstarter​, because you know we’ll need a huge push then, consider one of the tiers on the Patreon​ that is not for Alpha Hole Prison.  You can pledge $5 or $15 to start saving up for our next game.

Last Chance For Mister Versatile!

Yes, we’re still trying to make our Coronavirus era Kickstarter a success. Mister Versatile is an AMAZING game and deserves better than this! http://kck.st/2IFa8uE

A game like this should have been on par with To Trust an Incubus, which made close to $50,000 and catapulted our company to it’s initial success.

This was BEFORE people trusted us.  Three Kickstarters and one IndieGoGo later, everyone knows that Y Press Games is the one company that always delivers Kickstarters on time.   Besides that, our games are high quality!  We made the first functional visual novel farming game, for goodness sake!  One where you could plant, harvest, buy, and sell.  We went the extra mile–we always try to.

There’s nothing to hold people back, right?

The Coronavirus has kicked Mister Versatile’s ass, and we’re still lagging.

Mister Versatile is ostensibly BETTER than our last gay game.  And it’s still barely succeeding?  Are you kidding us!

We started out great, because the world wasn’t the disaster movie it is now.  Besides that, we HAD to launch this Kickstarter now.  Studio Kosen took a gamble with us.  They quit their jobs to put all their time into games.

We feel like we really let them down.  I know they understand, but still, we made some big promises on this Kickstarter based on our previous success.

They might not work with us again 😦

Please help us beat the odds.  This game is so good–one of our best.  We are asking for your help.

  1. If you have the money to back us, please back us.  Backing for a perk would be amazing of you, but even $1 will get your Kickstarter followers to see our game.
  2. If you can’t back us, can you help promote us?  Mention our link in your social media, blog, Reddit, or forums you visit?  It’s below: http://kck.st/2IFa8uE
  3. If you can’t back us or promote us will you help our visibility on Kickstarter? We’re on page 5 on Video Games.  Click on the  Mister Versatile campaign here to help us hit #1. Thanks, Everyone!  Now forward this newsletter to a friend!

We Lost ‘Be a Villain’ Perk

You guys know it’s been no easy picnic to run a Kickstarter right now.  We sold 3 of our $1000 perks, and one was returned yesterday.  It’s a huge blow to the whole team.  Check out Mister Versatile and consider being a villain or supporting us in any way you can.  http://kck.st/2IFa8uE

If you follow Y Press Games on Facebook, Twitter, Ypressgames.com, Steam discussions, Itch devlogs, and Instagram, you are only seeing the promotional side of the business.

From that angle it may appear we don’t care about the pandemic and are just trying to get our Kickstarter funded.

To see the human side of Y Press Games, the place were we can be ourselves in an informal discussion setting, join our Discord here:  https://discord.gg/Vd23qJ4

We need to get our Kickstarters funded in order to make our games, but we would never ask for someone to go broke by supporting us.

We know there’s a pandemic.  We are worried and concerned, the same as you.  We don’t put well wishes about the pandemic in our advertising, because it’s insincere.  There is a place for commiseration, concern, and unity, and that’s not in an advertisement where you’re selling something.
