Hey hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs, it’s been a LOOOOONG time since I wrote one of these (bear with me while I get back into the swing of things), but there’s a new crowd funding campaign over on Indiegogo for an upcoming BL dating sim, My Magical Demon Lover from Yaoi Press Games.
For those of you new, here, Let’s Show Our Support posts highlight current crowdfunding campaigns for indie games (usually VNs and OELVNs). I give you guys the basic rundown of the game and the perks of supporting the game’s campaign, as well as links to all the relevant game related pages and sites.
Y’all know how I feel about BL games, so when Yamila emailed me about the game, I knew I just had to whip something up! The Yaoi Press team is currently looking to raise funding to help with the current production schedule and to expand on the content of the game.

Hey hey guys I am super late with this Kickstarter campaign, there are just 9 days left to support JKU Studio’s upcoming 18+ BL romance visual novel GRAND!! I am a huge fan of BL games, so when the Neku emailed me about their upcoming game, I just knew I had to help spread the word (though granted real life decided that that was also the perfect time to knock me down a peg).
I am loving this influx of BL games from the western indie game developers and GRAND!! promises to be a fun new title. There is still time to show JKU Studios some love, but if you need a bit of convincing, I’m going to do a rundown of all the great features the team has in store for you if the game is able to reach it’s $3,500 funding goal by July 15th!

Upon its release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, but the the game was recently greenlit for steam. The demo covers roughly an 30 mins to an hour of gameplay (it really depends on how fast you read).
I never get tired of saying this, but it does my heart good to see another BL game in development, since the genre is still pretty niche despite how large the fandom is… hopefully more developers will start producing even more BL titles in the future! *nudge nudge wink wink* Argent Games has been on a roll, it’s been a year, but Chess of Blades is their second title and it promises to be a thrilling addition to their lineup!

It’s 2017 and with it comes the promise of new games and brand new Kickstarter campaigns!! If you all will remember back to September when I covered Aeon Dream Studio’s KS campaign for their Deluxe Edition of their debut supernatural romance visual novel, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons, I mentioned that they were also planning on launching a KS campaign for a sequel called, Mystic Destinies: Echoes. Well I am excited to announce that today marks the first day of the campaign!!
I absolutely LOVE Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons, and I have been stalking ADS relentlessly on social media for months since they first announced their plans to write a sequel! I am super stoked for this game because not only does it let you romance the villains from MDSOA, but it also features a gorgeous sun kissed protagonist!!

A Very Important Date is an upcoming Alice in Wonderland themed visual novel from indie developers Naive Sprites. Upon it’s release the game will be available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The developers are also working on getting the game greenlit for Steam. The demo covers the Prologue and the first three chapters of Gwyn and Emil’s routes, for a total of 6 chapters total, which amounts to roughly three to four hours of gameplay. So with just a few hours left in the Kickstarter campaign, I decided to bring you all a review of the demo version of the game!
I should stress that this is a loose adaptation, and that while Naive Sprites borrows many elements from Carroll’s iconic story, AVID is a wholly original work that promises to breathe new life into the popular tale.

So, a little while ago, I was asked to participate in a beta test for an upcoming anime themed tower defense game from Bizurk Software, TinyWars! The game has been in development since 2015 and will be available for PC and mobile devices upon it’s release.
I’ve played a few tower defense mobile games before, but they were never more than a way to pass the time on the commute to and from school. So when I was asked to participate in the beta testing for the game I didn’t expect much, but TinyWars proved to be both fun and challenging!
**Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any of the images used in this review, ALL images, screenshots, and characters belong to Bizurk Software.

Since today is Election Day here in the good old U.S. of A, I decided to bring you all a very special Kickstarter Campaign to get you all in the political mood! I will admit that when I saw this campaign last week, I thought they were pulling my leg, but to my surprise the whole thing is legit! So on this very special Election Day, I bring you the Kickstarter Campaign for Robert W. Amster’s political satire dating sim, Grand Old Academy!
Yes, ya’ll, a visual novel that lets you date the 2016 Republican Presidential Candidates! Oddly enough, this is one of those things I never thought I needed, but now that it’s here I can’t imagine my life with out it! I only have one question… okay well two…
- Why has no one tried to do something like this before?
- Will there be a sequel for the Democratic Presidential Candidates?
But, I think I’m getting ahead of myself a bit… Grand Old Academy will be a free to play PC dating sim, but they still need your help to get the ball rolling!

But, years of slacking off have finally caught up to our lazy protagonist (MC-kun) and he finds that his job is on the line… that is unless he wins the prestigious Seiyuu Awards.

So what sets this game apart from the rest? Legend of Run combines the immersive story of a visual novel with the puzzles and technical elements of an RPG!
When I first saw this game floating around on Twitter, I was excited because we definitely need more BL visual novels on the market. But then after finding out that it was also part RPG, I nearly broke my laptop in my excitement! I have no doubt that YesterJoy Games’s debut title, will make a huge splash in the visual novel community.

Edit (9/23): The Kickstarter for this game was successful at meeting its funding goal and the game was successfully Greenlit for Steam. The final funding amount was $2,969 with 111 backers! The game now has a tentative release date of January 2017!
So as usual, I’m a day late and a dollar short with yet another Kickstarter campaign! This time around I’m covering the upcoming steampunk fantasy visual novel developed by GB Patch, A Foretold Affair! I literally came across this Kickstarter campaign a day or two ago and I am ashamed to admit that there are only a handful of days left (the campaign ends Sept 16th).
Of all of the Kickstarter campaigns I’ve covered so far this year, this quite possibly one of the most unique. I really hope that this project reaches it’s funding goal, because this is a very intriguing story idea.
A Foretold Affair takes place in a world in which society is divided between that of the Abnormals (those with special abilities) and the Normals (those without). The games protagonist, Buffalo Seer, is Abnormal who’s special ability allows them to see the future. However, even among Abnormals this power is uncommon and those that posses it are advised against using it. Undeterred, Seer decides to peer into their own future and what they find changes their life forever.

Follow the link below to see the trailer for the game (WordPress won’t let me embed the video for some reason)…
I absolutely love historical fantasy books and television shows, so when I saw that there was an upcoming visual novel with similar themes I just knew I had to check it out! The Kickstarter claims that the game is inspired notable fantasy powerhouses such as, “A Song of Ice and Fire” and the “Dragon Age series”… My only question is, Where do I sign up?!”
