Unfinished Crowdfunding Projects

We have rescued a few projects in the past.  If your options are to never deliver or to get help, we might be able to help you.  Each project comes with different circumstances, so we look at things on a case by case basis.  Contact us through our contact page and let’s talk.

Some things we may be able to help with:

  • Financing
  • Programming
  • Project Management
  • Line Art (if we can match the existing style)
  • Coloring (if we can match the existing style)
  • Backgrounds (if we can match the existing style)
  • Music (if we can match the existing style)
  • Voice Acting Production
  • Writing (if we can match the existing style)
  • Marketing
  • Publishing

Our philosophy is to offer a fair deal or no deal at all.  If we can’t help you, but the game looks good, we can usually put you in touch with another developer who will offer you an equitable contract.  We’ve done this for another game in the past.

Writer/Artist

If you are both the writer and artist, or writer/artist/programmer on a dating sim and would like to partner with us, we sometimes offer net royalty-share opportunities with 50% for the creator.

To submit, make sure your work fits into one of the genres on the bottom of this page and send a query introducing yourself and listing your past works and any credentials.  Give us a brief description of your project with a beginning, middle, and end.  Provide links (not attachments) to multiple examples of your artwork.  Contact us through our contact page.

Artists

Artists should submit by contacting us through our contact page.  Tell us what you’re interested in doing:  Line Art, Backgrounds, Logos, GUIs, Flats, Shading, or Graphic Design.  Provide links to samples of your work.

We are very strict about deadlines.

Programmers

Right now we’re producing visual novels programmed in Ren’Py.  We currently have three programmers working for us at this time and are not looking for additional help.

Writers

If you would like to be a writer for us you should submit your own concept for consideration.  You do not need to be a programmer to submit a concept to us.

Writers are paid either a flat amount for the entire game script, or a percentage of the sales, possibly with an advance.  We negotiate with writers on a case by case basis.

To submit, make sure your work fits into one of the genres below and send a query introducing yourself and listing your past works and any credentials.  Give us a brief description of your project with a beginning, middle, and end.  Contact us through our contact page.

Genres are listed in order of preference –

Masculine Gay Games for Men
We would like gay game submissions from existing fans of the genre.  If you are not familiar with Barazoku magazine from Japan, you should at least be a fan of the western variants of bara which include the work of Patrick Fillion and Tom of Finland.  The demographic for these games are gay men.

Gay games can be x-rated or sweet and funny without graphic sex.  The fan base is open to all well-executed, respectful, and enjoyable games.

Yaoi – Open to Writer/Artist Royalty Share Submissions only
Yaoi games must have extremely strong premises propped up by exceptional art teams.  There is an enormous amount of material for western yaoi fans to consume.  For a game to sell well it needs to contain an irresistible premise, and something that generates buzz in the community.

We are extremely selective with yaoi games and do not plan to make more than one a year.

Yaoi games can be x-rated, mature audiences, or without sex scenes.  The demographic for these games are women.

Do not submit shota-con or anything that even vaguely looks like that if you squint at it.  Rape should not be presented as sex scenes that are meant to titillate, in a positive light, or as the basis for or start of a relationship.   Unhealthy relationships should not be presented in a positive light.  Both partners should have agency in the principle relationship.

No one under 18, even ancillary characters, may be present in X-Rated games.
