Are you too broke to back a Kickstarter right now? We’ve launched our Patreon to let people save up money month by month to support our crowdfunding in the future.
Save $5 a month and you’ll have a stash of money ready to go when we do our NEXT crowdfunding. This will be for our upcoming yaoi game, Maelstrom. Stay tuned for more information!

Each newsletter we’d like to remember a game from our past. This time it’s To Trust an Incubus, the game that put us on the map!
Can you believe Harsi was scared of YouTube videos? It caused an existential breakdown for the poor incubus!
Finally…what is yaoi? YAOI IS LIFE!
The bestselling Maelstrom novel series is being made into a visual novel by Y Press Games. It will be written by the original novelist, Yamila Abraham, and illustrated by Italian art Studio Dany&Dany!
Novel cover by Himitsu Studio, the Maelstrom game will be illustrated by Dany&Dany
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!
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!
Good Lord! Why is Rexillator choking Reaver? (And why is Reaver so calm?) Alpha Hole Prison!
Miguel’s in trouble!
Crap! Miguel’s in trouble! —Alpha Hole Prison
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.
Please don’t miss your chance to support Mister Versatile. By supporting our Kickstarter you help us reach stretch goals which make the game better for everyone. Right now we’re crawling up on the Mister Versatile body/facial hair toggle! Back our Kickstarter here: http://kck.st/2IFa8uE
