Sentimental Trickster is drama heavy slice-of-life boys love visual novel developed by Lovenuts and published by Y Press Games. This game was a long time coming, five years in development hell and it’s finally here and I was so surprised when the release date was announced, because I honestly forgot this was still in the works. In the game you play a Haru, a college student who has left his small town life for the big city in hopes of getting a new start.
A few weeks ago, Justyna Pustelnik contacted me via Twitter about maybe taking a look at the demo for her upcoming BL visual novel, Sentimental Trickster. However, when I received the request I was wrapping up the 30 Day Anime Challenge (and in need of a break), so I wasn’t able to play the demo right away. But, I was able to talk with Justyna through Twitter and after reviewing the Kickstarter campaign, I was able to bang out a Kickstarter Support post for the game.
I originally planned on getting back to the demo after my Blogging Vacation, but one thing led to another and the demo ended up further down on my To Do List than I would have hoped… forgive me! So, I know this is late, but better late than never… right? So, with the Kickstarter winding down, I figured the time was ripe for a demo review in order to generate more buzz for the game as it nears its final days!
Edit (8/30): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal and two of the stretch goals. The final funding amount was $9,036 with 328 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of March 2017!
I am super late with this, but, about a week ago an indie game developer actually reached out to me on twitter about their new 18+ BL visual novel, Sentimental Trickster! As you all know I am a lover of all things BL, so best believe I was over the moon to hear about another indie BL visual novel!!!
It’s taken me awhile, but I finally got around to playing the demo and I can’t wait to see the final product!! The game is the brain child of one woman, so everything you see in the demo was put together by one person! Talk about dedication!
