7 NSFW Yaoi Games from Itch.io

I've been on a Yaoi game demo binge lately on Itch.io and wanted to review each game I play while also recommending some indies for you guys. To start Let's dive into the intriguing world of "Dead Dating - Your Gay Summer Horror Bromance" (yes, that's a mouthful, but bear with me here). This title had me at murder mystery, but it certainly delivered more than just a whodunit plot.


7 NSFW Yaoi Games from Itch.io



Gameplay


First things first, the gameplay. In this demo, I was thrown into an isolated mansion, trapped with ten guys (some of whom are admittedly pretty cute), and a killer on the loose. The game's exploration mechanism lets you wander through various areas, discover clues, and collect items that could impact the story.





You're not just collecting random stuff for the sake of it, but each item might have clues, unlock secret files, or even affect the outcome of your relationship with these characters. So yeah, explore away!


The customization of the player character is a cool touch. You get to choose everything from your name to your haircut, mustache, and eye color. Though it doesn't affect the gameplay, it adds a personal connection to the story.


Episodes and DLCs


The game is broken down into five normal chapters and a hidden one, aptly named "Episode H." And there's more content promised with three upcoming DLCs. I love the idea of multiple paths and endings; it gives the game replay value, and trust me, you'll want to explore every nook and cranny.


Boys, Boys, Boys


Now, let's talk about the boys. Different costumes and appearances evolve as the storyline develops. These are not just eye candy but part of item collections that can impact your story with them. It's a fun addition that adds depth to the characters.


Lookback Mode and Other Features


The lookback mode and Eye of Truth are nice additions, allowing for recall of collected CG and forcing important clues to appear. Auto mode speeds up conversations, which is handy if you're the impatient type like me.


Final Thoughts


This game, with its multi-layered plot, engaging characters, and interactive gameplay, caught my attention and kept me engaged. It's part murder mystery, part romance, and totally addictive. I'm eager to see how the full version unfolds, and I'll be keeping an eye on those DLCs.


"STORAGE" by OOO


Alright, let's get into the not-so-subtle realm of "STORAGE" by OOO. Now, before I dig into this, I'll give you a heads-up: this is a clicker game made to simply make bottom-kun (yes canon name) orgasm. It's one of those games that you randomly find but the simplicity of it makes you curious. Reminds me of the Yaoi 'Sensitive Pornograph' but if you know you know.


Gameplay



Storage by OOO


"STORAGE" keeps things incredibly straightforward. It's a clicker game. That's right, your primary action is clicking on the screen to make bottom-kun orgasm. But don't be deceived by its simplicity.


You play as a boss with, ahem, "other intentions," working alone with bottom-kun to search for documents. Your job? Well, become the boss and make sure the other employees don't catch you in the act. It's as simple and as complicated as that.


Feels like a Yaoi OVA based on a manga one shot.


Language Support


One notable aspect of "STORAGE" is its multilingual support. You can choose from English, Spanish, Chinese (Traditional/Simplified), and Japanese. However, the voice acting is exclusively in Japanese. It's a welcome touch that broadens the accessibility of the game.


Animation and Voice Acting


Let's talk about the elephant in the room: the voice acting and animation. For a game that relies solely on clicking, it's essential to get these aspects right, and "STORAGE" does a pretty good job here.


The animation is engaging enough to keep your attention, and the Japanese voice acting adds an authentic touch that enhances the overall experience.


Final Thoughts


Okay, let's be clear: "STORAGE" is not going to win any awards for its complexity. But it doesn't need to. It knows exactly what it is and embraces it without apology. It's a guilty pleasure game and knows who the target audience is.



Lovers of the risqué, buckle up because this time we're diving into the world of "Yarrow Valley." This game doesn't hold back, it's cute art may fool you, but I'll put it out there straight away: It's R18+, and it's for adults only. If you're under 18, skip ahead because we're about to break down what makes "Yarrow Valley" a spicy addition to the Boys Love Universe. Honestly if you're not 18+ you shouldn't even be here reading this article or even the website itself so please be aware that all these games are 18+.


The Game Itself


"Yarrow Valley" offers around half an hour of reading time for the full story, but don't let the brevity fool you; there's plenty to unpack here. We're going to watch Yarrow and Havi's relationship blossom into something quite steamy, complete with two unique sex scenes to choose from. Oh, and did I mention there are three original songs created just for Yarrow Valley? Yeah, the game doesn't skimp on content.





The Team


Brought to life by the collaboration of Arcade Party and DCS, the duo that teamed up for 2018's Yaoijam, "Yarrow Valley" showcases their strengths.

  • Arcade Party: Handling story development, script, and programming.

  • DCS: Taking charge of the story concept, GUI, sprites, CG's, and backgrounds.

For fans of the art, supporting DCS on Patreon gives you access to the art book for the game.


The Music


The soundtrack of "Yarrow Valley" deserves special attention. Created by Agent Ape, the music sets the mood, complements the storytelling, and adds an extra layer of engagement. Check out Agent Ape's Bandcamp and Patreon for more of their work.


Language Options


This game wants to spread the love, offering versions in French and Spanish. The inclusion of multiple languages is a thoughtful touch that makes the game accessible to more players.


Final Thoughts


"Yarrow Valley" is filled with passion and an appealing visual design. It's perfect for those who seek a condensed but intense playthrough, with engaging storytelling and well-crafted artwork.


This game might be short, but it's anything but shallow. From the story development to the art and music, "Yarrow Valley" serves up an experience that's unapologetically adult and satisfying in its execution.



Whew, take a deep breath, because we're about to enter the dynamic world of "Seiyuu Danshi ~ After Stories ~." If you thought that voice acting was just about standing in a booth with a script, get ready to have your mind blown. This 18+ Visual Novel / Dating sim takes us into the life of a voice actor with twists, turns, and a whole lot of choices. So, what's this game all about? Let's break it down!


About Seiyuu Danshi ~ After Stories ~


"After Stories" is like an extended universe of Seiyuu Danshi, where additional episodes (66 of them as of April 2023) deviate from the original game's setting. These extra episodes are dished out monthly and are Patreon-funded.





The interesting part? The base game alone doesn't do anything. You need to download the episodes to unlock them, and it's as simple as downloading the RPA files and placing them in the right folder (instructions are all there for Windows, Linux, and Mac users).


What is Seiyuu Danshi?


Welcome to the heart of the voice acting world! In Seiyuu Danshi, you step into the shoes of a newbie voice actor with dreams of winning the year-end Seiyuu Award. But here's the catch: how you reach that goal is entirely up to YOU.


Feel like slacking? Go for it! Want to be single forever? That's an option. But remember, every action you take affects the game's outcome.


Gameplay


What makes Seiyuu Danshi stand out is the lack of typical restrictions you find in ordinary Visual Novels. This game is HIGHLY interactive, offering an open-ended experience where you're in the driver's seat. Work, slack, date, or simply explore - the choices are endless.


After Stories Compilation


This add-on compilation gives you more of what you loved from the original game but with new angles, perspectives, and episodes. Whether you're seeking SFW content or something a bit more risqué, "After Stories" has something for every fan. Of course I chose the more NSFW routes but it's healthy to see a Yaoi based game also focus on SFW routes.


Final Thoughts


"Seiyuu Danshi ~ After Stories ~" is an immersive experience. From the captivating storyline to the intricate gameplay, it draws you in and keeps you hooked. The ability to download and unlock new episodes keeps the content fresh and exciting.


If you've ever wondered what life as a voice actor is like, or if you're simply looking for a unique and engaging 18+ dating sim, this game will not disappoint. Try out the demo and explore the many paths that await in the world of Seiyuu Danshi.

"Coming Out on Top" isn't just a game – it's a rollicking ride through the ups and downs, ins and outs of college life as Mark Matthews, and let me tell you, it's not all textbooks and lectures. This game is like that friend who drags you to the party you never knew you needed.

First things first, Mark's coming out of the closet, and he's doing it with style. You guide him through his adventurous journey as he navigates romance, friendship, and a heap of hilarious hijinks. Ever thought college was boring? Think again.




Coming Out on Top



Choice and Charm


Now, this isn't your run-of-the-mill click-and-watch game. No, you're in the driver's seat. Your choices shape Mark's experiences, and trust me, there's a lot to explore. Beard or no beard? Body hair or smooth? Right or wrong? The options are all in your hands to choose.


Date Night Delight

There are 18 of them, each one hotter than the last, and they're all waiting for Mark to sweep them off their feet.

To finish off I just wanted to note that these games all bring something different to the Yaoi Genre of gaming. It's a very small industry so it's always a pleasure to discover new games despite how long they have been on Itch.io. If you have any recommendations hit me up in the comments.
