My Magical Demon Lover – BL Game Review

Spicy Ecchi Content + A Yaoi Fantasy Story + A Dash of Comedy = My Magical Demon Lover, a ‘mature players’ dating sim that puts the wannabe wizard Tristan with his choice of three hot demons. 

Earlier this year, Y Press Games released their fantasy BL visual novel, My Magical Demon Lover about an up and coming wizard that has to fuck one of three super mega foxy hot demons in order to gain “phenomenal cosmic powers”.

Fuck a demon → Become a wizard

That’s pretty much all you need to know going into My Magical Demon Lover. The game starts with Tristan fapping off in his bedroom, when he is suddenly summoned by his grandfather, a super powerful wizard. Thinking his dreams of becoming a wizard are about to come true, Tristan, flies off to meet his grandpa only discover he’s preparing to set off on a sexual romp in the Pleasure Realm. With no heirs to take up his role as village protector, Percival pushes all of his responsibilities onto Tristan, but, before he can do that, he must choose a demon mentor to help him with his task. Each demon will grant Tristan magical powers, but at a price… it’s sex. Tristan trades sex favors for magic powers…

It’s all on the box with this game, you spend the majority of the game trading sexual favors with your chosen demon lover, while also getting to know a bit about them. Granted this is not the first game to feature demon lovers, both the Seduce Me series and Cute Demon Crashers both have incubi (and succubi) as potential romantic partners. But, where those games ease you into the sexual escapades, My Magical Demon Lover skips the pretext and jumps right into the sexy times. Don’t get me wrong, you do get a chance to spend time with each of the demons in turn, however, that usually occurs after all the sexy times are done.

The characters are a lot of fun, with my favorite being Tristan’s sex crazed grandfather, Percival, he just steals the show whenever he’s on screen. Unfortunately, he’s not in the game all that much… in fact, I wouldn’t mind a spin-off game following him either in the Pleasure Realm or like a prequel game detailing his younger wizard in training days, because unlike his grandson, he knows how to party!

Now this is the story I’m dying to see unfold!

The demon lovers are all pretty interesting, each with their own unique personalities that correspond to their distinctive sexual tastes. Harse is a sweetheart, a kind and gentle demon that is looking for a human to love and dote on, his sexual encounters with Tristan is very vanilla… lots of soft touch and positive reinforcement. Whereas Karn is much more direct and commanding during sex and let’s not forget the BDSM… Soren’s route was by far the most interesting of the three, since, unlike the other two demons he doesn’t particularly want sex, which in a BL game is a rarity. That’s not to say that he isn’t capable, just that his tastes lie elsewhere. I also liked that some of the characters fulfill different roles during sex, in most games the protagonist is almost always a bottom or a top, so it was nice to see the roles reverse a bit in some of the routes.

While this game does feature a lot of sex between Tristan and his chosen lover, My Magical Demon Lover isn’t as explicit as most BL games I’ve played, going more of the shounen-ai route when depicting intimate moments. So, if you were expecting to see some “male genitalia” sadly there’s none to be seen, but, trust me the sex scenes are plenty steamy, even without seeing all the juicy bits.

I have to give credit where credit is due, Y Press Games, really embraced their premise, yeah it’s smut, but, they have fun with it. This is a very self aware game, it knows what it is and rather than trying to be something it isn’t it goes all in with the tongue and cheek commentary and comedy early on. But, what really blew me away was the art! My Magical Demon Lover is a really pretty game, with fantasy inspired character designs and backgrounds. Each of the demons has a distinct style that highlight their personalities and preferences, granted the demons are barely wearing anything to begin with, but, it works well with their bishounen physiques.

This was just an all around standard visual novel, there aren’t any additional features to unlock and the writing is pretty tame given the subject matter. However, the CGs do make up for this, since each one is beautifully rendered, bringing the steamier scenes to life, but, like I mentioned earlier, you don’t get to see any of the naughty bits.

final thoughts

My Magical Demon Lover is a very simple game, that on it’s own doesn’t particularly stand out from some of the flashier BL titles currently available. But, its that same simplicity that works to it’s advantage, there aren’t any complex storylines to follow or deep mysteries to uncover, making for a nice introductory BL game.

My Magical Demon Lover is a fun little romp that will definitely keep you entertained with it’s sexy demon lovers and steamy smutty scenes. But, as always, you don’t have to take my word for it! Check out the trailer below or give the game a try!
