There is a FREE DLC to Remove Censoring available Right on Steam! (Unless you’re from a country that doesn’t allow adult games, then you can get the patch here: https://ypressgames.com/2018/11/02/patch-to-remove-censoring-from-to-trust-an-incubus/)

 

HarsiImploresKenta

(If you don’t like Steam keep reading for another option.) We worked super hard on this. Not only did we deliver the game on time to all backers, keeping our promises, we got in every stretch goal we met, plus five extra ones!  This is a monumental work for us, and we hope you’ll find it worthy of a good review on Steam.  We really need a great launch!!

*awestruck*

The temp worker Kenta is trapped in a lab with four sexy incubus aliens from another dimension! A gay sci-fi yaoi/bara dating sim for adults only!

Kenta, a temp worker, gets a job in a lab that’s holding four muscly incubi aliens in quarantine. They came through Professor Raiden’s interdimensional portal like several other beings who visited Japan before them.

Past interdimensional visitors have warned Professor Raiden about aliens that look just like these ones. They might be ravagers who are scouting Earth to plunder it.

The top linguist working for the lab can barely communicate with the incubi. He’s figured out they need to bond with someone in order to learn their language.

Will Kenta be the one to bond with the incubi? And if so, will he be able to figure out if they’re the evil ravagers or some other benign race?

  • A Dynamic, Story-driven Dating Sim with over 150,000 Words
  • Four Routes, 35 Endings, 50 Steam Achievements
  • 24 Original Music Tracks
  • Full Voice Acting from Top Anime and Game Voice Actors
  • Twosome and Threesome Romance Options
  • All Characters Versatile
  • Over 200 Gorgeous CGs
  • Three Unique Mini-Games
  • An Intricate ‘Choices Matter’ Stats System

Will the incubi stay in our world? Will Kenta get a permanent job? Make the right choices to get happily-ever-afters for everyone’s endings, or the wrong choices for some magnificently effed-up endings.

Sexually explicit art is censored with chibi stickers. If you live in a country that allows adult content you will see a free ‘Patch to Uncensor Artwork’ in the list of DLC (downloadable Content) of the final game. If you are in one of the 28 countries that ban games with adult content (sorry Australia) the patch will not work for you. If we offered it to you our game would be banned in your country.  You can get the patch HERE instead!

Get the Game, Sound Track, Art Book, and Cheat Map on Steam!

If you don’t like Steam there will be an Itch.io release in a few months.

And again, if you like the game please consider leaving a positive review.  They are super important and would mean everything to us!!

All Incu-Besty Rewards Sent

If you bought the Incu-Besty reward on the To Trust an Incubus Kickstarter or through Ko-Fi or Coffee, check your email, including spam, because your reward has been sent.

Here are some reasons why you may not have gotten your reward:

  1. You changed your Kickstarter email.  Even if you notified us, it’s impossible to keep this after-market info straight on 1,200 rewards.  Contact us again using the contact form on this site.  Give us your Kickstarter order number so we can look you up.
  2. You bought the reward from Ko-Fi or Buy Me a Coffee and didn’t put your email address in the message with the reward as we instructed.  If you didn’t give us your email we have no way to send your reward.  Contact us with proof you made a donation and we’ll look you up and get it sent.We said in the Buy me a Coffee instructions:  No email in your message, no reward.  Still we got several donations without any identifying information.  Buy me a Coffee does not give us any personal information about the people donating–so we’re stuck!  It’s up to you to fix this, because we literally have NO WAY to find out who you are.
  3. Your email bounced.  We had a bunch come back.  If this prevented you from getting your reward contact us and we’ll figure it out together.
  4. You donated less than the amount needed to get the Incu-Besty reward.  $5, $10, or $15 donations etc. do not grant any rewards besides your name in the credits and the backer only poster.

We’ll be directing anyone who doesn’t get their Incu-Besty reward to this post.  We honestly did our best to get everyone their rewards.  ;_; We’re only human.

Next up:  Incu-Beasty!!  We’ll be sending your rewards over the next few days.  Don’t worry, the game doesn’t come out until Nov. 23rd and you’ll definitely have your rewards before then.

To Trust an Incubus – November 23, 2018

We have a release date and a coming soon page on Steam!  To Trust an Incubus is LIVE on November 23rd!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/825300/To_Trust_an_Incubus/

Digital rewards for Kickstarter and Coffee backers will be coming your way in the next weeks, including Steam codes for your copy of the game.  These codes will unlock the game on November 23rd.

We’re so excited to finally have a release date!  And we need to tell you about something special we’re doing.  Check out our press release below:

(tl;dr To Trust an Incubus will be censored, but people from most countries can use a DLC patch on Steam to turn off the censoring.  Everyone else will be able to get the patch from the Y Press Games web site.)

You’re welcome to share this press release and the images shown/linked anywhere you want.  Help us spread the word!!

Gay Adult Steam Game Tries to Avoid Ban

Las Cruces, NM – To Trust an Incubus, a gay muscle or “bara” adult game published by Y Press Games, proposes a clever method to avoid the ban seen by Steams first adult game in 28 countries.

The explicitly sexual To Trust an Incubus game will have a censored release on Steam, with a free patch to remove the censoring offered as downloadable content (DLC) on the same platform.

The patch is region locked, so it will not be made available to the 28 countries that banned Negligee: Love Stories. All other countries, the US and UK included, will be able to remove censoring with the patch in the DLC section of the Steam listing. The patch will also be made available on Y Press Games’ web site.

To Trust an Incubus uses a unique censoring method which may entice players to play the censored version prior to using the patch. Chibi “stickers” are placed over explicit content.

Non-Explicit Example:

Explicit Example:

An art book is also offered without censoring as DLC and is similarly region locked in the 28 countries banning adult Steam games.

“Our Kickstarter showed us we have a lot of customers in Australia and Germany,” said Ryan Ipso, Y Press Games’ media liaison. “We don’t want to be banned in those countries. If this doesn’t work, it was still worth the attempt.”

To Trust an Incubus is a sci-fi visual novel featuring the character Kenta, who is trapped in a lab with four muscular incubi from another dimension. With over 150,000 words, 35 endings, 50 Steam Achievements, full voice acting, 3 mini-games, and over 200 CGs, it’s Y Press Games’ largest offering to date.

To Trust an Incubus will be available on Steam November 23rd, 2018. Y Press Games’ first game, My Magical Demon Lover, was released on Steam in October 2018 after a prior release on Itch in May of 2018 in order to deliver crowd-funding rewards on time. About Y Press Games Y Press Games is a visual novel publisher focused on yaoi, bara, horror, and otome games.

Nearing the Finish Line for To Trust an Incubus

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.  😉

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).
