A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Now on KICKSTARTER - play the DEMO!

Sentimental Trickster is a BL/yaoi visual novel with humor, heart and occasional awkwardness. It puts you in charge of Haru as he moves to a big city and tries not to get himself killed. Who knows, maybe he will even find the right guy along the way. That is, if he doesn't scare him off.

"I decided it was time. I packed my old, tattered backpack and left home. I still have nightmares... But I'm hanging in there. Even if my boarding house is in the middle of a freaking big, black forest. Good thing I know how to fight, in case something decides I look tasty. Hey, I'm the guy with a goofy face and violet hair. Getting beaten to a pulp in high school gets boring pretty quickly. But it doesn't mean I like violence.

I conquer the world one snarky comment at a time and I have no sense of direction. When I deal with people, things can get awkward. Ballet-dancing-with-a-peg-leg kind of awkward. So far, four-eyes hates my guts, pretty boy laughs at me and the landlord thinks I'm weird. At least I can always try to get myself killed with this pierced hero-wannabe...

I try not to think about the future. When you don't expect anything, you won't be disappointed, right? I just want to attend classes, graduate and become independent... that is, if you can even make a living after finishing an arts college."

The game relies heavily on the player's choices. Those choices include which guy you want to be with, but also ethical issues: what you deem the right thing to do the time. All the people you encounter have scars, and it's up to you to heal or rub salt.

Sentimental Trickster was made in order to give English-speaking players an experience akin to what Nitro+Chiral games provide, but with a lighter touch.

Features:

  • An engaging choice system (check out the demo!) that will affect the whole game;
  • Lots of 18+ scenes that change dramatically, depending on your playing style;
  • Lovable protagonist with a great sense of humor;
  • Complex characters that don't wear their hearts on their sleeves;
  • Created by one person;
  • You can bully hipsters!

hellohello, i loved this demo !! may i ask, when will the full release be out ??

Hello, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :) The full game will probably come out around July 2017.

Hello! I am a translator of renpy games. I would like to know if your game is going to be in Spanish...

And if it is not, I want to ask permission to translate the demo into Spanish.

Hi :) I'm sorry for the late reply. I had bad internet connection for a while. Feel free to translate the demo!

Great Demo! I really enjoyed it :) Soichiro is my favorite so far. Shinya is too mean for me :( Cool piercings guy is cool too. I look forward to a full release! :D

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I'm surprised at how many people like Soichiro. I expected him to come across as this boring, old pushover (at least in the demo, where the characters are just introduced), but I'm thrilled that you all saw something more in him. Haha, I like Shinya best, but just because he's the easiest to laugh at :D
