Our Kickstarter is Done!! We Got Slagathor!

Allen thought he had his life all figured out. He just graduated university and was headed off to med school. Then a strange letter arrives from a grandfather he never knew. He's pulled onto a new path toward a strange mansion filled with even stranger creatures.  

These fantasy beings shouldn't even exist--and yet, they're somehow familiar. Allen has no time for mysteries, but when he tries to leave he realizes he's trapped, and so are the magical monsters! Allen must solve the mystery of his own past while learning magic by "bonding" to one of the fantasy creatures.  Otherwise he'll never get free!

An adults only tale of magic and love between man and monster with art by the famous bara artist Jouvru!  Will Allen escape the magical mansion and continue the life he planned--or has his entire world been turned upside-down?

wasnt that supposed to be released on October? Why the delay?

Hi, can i ask about top and bottom with love interests? Does Allen always be top or bottom based on love interests or we can choose to be both?


Awww I'm really sad because no Android version and i was really excited for this when i saw it 🥲


Ikr 🥲 and couldn't play it through joiplay

windows 11 64bit is not working to play this game?

Please select the option to play with animations turned off.  

I realy enjoy the Demo! Will it be posseble to buy the full game here on itch.io too? Beceause german lwas says steam has no propper age check and so i cannot buy it from there when it is finnisched.

Yes!  We'll offer it here as well.


Same for me, which is why I also buy the games from itch.io now.


will the game has partial voice acting since the full voice acting goal wasn't reached? super excited for this game!

Hi Cookie, we no longer do partial voice acting on any of our games for reasons we can't go into.

Aww, that's so disappointing :(



I know this depends on funding but I was wondering if the orc route has been funded yet?

I am totally willing to donate to help with funding, if there is still a chance

Hi! There is still time to fund the Kickstarter. The first stretch goal (threesome scene) has been met and we're working on the orc stretch goal now. Here's the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ypressgames/dear-monster?ref=aor1ty&token=c...

Will it be available to android? And does the demo playable in Android via joiplay?

We do not support Android as a platform for our games.  Sorry!


damn imbriss scroll is 350 crying..


imbriss only top? Can he bottom?

Imbriss can top and bottom :)

so we can top him in the game?

Yes :)


So happy :))

Hello, I totally love the demo and will purchcase the full version. But please fix the animations in the fullscreen mode for the MAC version I would love to see them and don't have the problem they don't work correctly. They bug around and don't load right something like that. But you killed me with Faeryn and Hikmat. Im a big fan of the agyptian history and the gods... he totally reminds me of one of those gods. Mostly of Anubis whom I love!!! Also Faeryn because I love Unicorns and Horses. Yours -RZ- 

Thank you for reporting this, and thank you for the kind words!  Is it possible your system doesn't have a fast enough processor?  The minimum is 2.3 ghz.  We have had hundreds of Mac downloads of the demo and have not had any other reports like this.


Sorry for answering so late. I had not realised that you had answered. Fun Fact, I see your answer and am sick with the bloody corona virus, luckliy I'm vaccinated three times. :P I checked my MAC and found out it has 3,2GHz as an proccessor. But it uses Catalina as an OS and this OS doesn't like 32bit games. I can't play many games because they run on 32bit. I always get the notification that 'Your current mac-os Version can't process 32-bit games'  if I want to play some games from my Steam Account... so I think probably that is the main issue. That means no animations for me.¯\_(ヅ)_/¯ Than it works without a hitch. The MAC is also more than 6 years old and second hand. Before I got it was only a office PC so it is probably not suited for those games. Thanks anyway but I will enjoy and love it even if the animations don't work. :)  

Yours -RZ-

Hi RZ,

You have both the 32 bit version of the game, and the regular version in your Itch Download.  Click the Icon that doesn't have -32 next to it and this should solve your problem.

Hello YPress Games,

Thank you!!! Yours RZ


Time to add Faeryn to my list of light-haired, oceanic-eyed, pretty boy faves! Honestly can't live without 'em! :D


Loooove Slagathor. I really hope the stretch goal is met so he's included.


Well, I'm already hooked! I liked Imbriss and Momo the most but I guess they are definitely my type XD I can't wait to see more of this game.


Love sexy hunk creatures


This game only has one bara character based off the profiles and pictures but is listed as a bara game. Will it be adding more characters or does it have others that aren't shown?


I think you are confused about the meaning of bara. As a genre it really just means it is gay content made primarily for a gay audience, as opposed to yaoi which is gay content primarily made for a straight female audience.

Bara doesn't just mean beefy, hairy guys.


I want to know their age and height.

This looks so good and Imbriss 's design is 😍 They all look so amazing


Another quality assured visual novel from YPress! So far I like Slagator appearance the most! :) 

Do a android version pls


use joiplay

Can u teach me how cause I can't use joiplay, somehow i cannot unzip the file because of Android 11 system T_T


Then you need to download ZArchiver app. Open it go to downloads press long on the zip. It will give you choices. After you extract the zip open joiplay and add the game. While choosing the .exe game file if it exists, choose the one says 32 not 64. The app crashes to some games with animations. Choosing 32 one helped me 1-2 times.  (I haven't tried joiplay with this game.) 

Hi can i ask if you already played this game via joiplay? 😭 I can't play the demo using that, i already followed your advice but still can't play it. 


No I haven't used joiplay for this game yet. Some of the ×64 games don't work on joiplay I don't really know the reason  😅 


I love this game so much i love everyone on it  and the art style so damn good :D <3! I can't wait to have full game in my grasp keep up the awesome work  guys \o/!!


Mmh small question... Are Imbriss and Momo blocked as top or...?

In any case thank you for your work! Can't wait to see the final result ! 


Wanted to know the answer to this, too, before investing. Imbriss and Momo are the only two that interest me, but I have literally zero interest in them being on top. 


I think momo might have a bottom scene because I watched the trailer for the game and it's shows momo bottoming for allen in one of the artwork.


The art is absolutely gorgeous. I'm really looking forward to the full release - can't wait to find out more about Momo and Imbriss <3 - with all the little hints being dropped here and there. 


Agreed, I think the artwork in this is the best Y Press Games has ever put out. I like their regular art style as well but this is something special.


Hey, I'd really love to play this game, but my computer's CPU seems to be lower than  2.3GHz (it freezes and I can't play demo at all).

Is there any way to play this game even with lower CPU? Will there be, maybe, another version for us unfortunate people?

We are looking into it.


yes, as the game is made with renpy it should be friendly

What do you mean? Is there a way to play it even with lower CPU (and how do I do it?)?


all of the games from the dev are made with renpy engine, and it should be a friendly engine, as it can even be made into a browser game, however if the game ask a high frequency cpu requirement means its dev's problem and they should do something about it, Im using an i3 and vn game asking for that high spec is a joke forget lower cpu not even a modern i7 (i7 11th gen has 1.2GHz cpu frequency)  can run it


maybe upgrade to something newer, instead of blaming devs. 


bruh do you even have idea of what you said? like I said, the modern i7 of 11th gen has only 1.2GHz cpu while the game demanding 2.3GHz, whats newer do you deemed newer? 11th gen is pretty much new, and even the yet to be released laptop with 12th gen, come only with 2.1GHz cpu, this is only a vn game duh not even open world why would it have to be very heavy?

please explain how in able to run this on a literal chromebook with the most bare specs perfectly fine I'm pretty 1.2 ghz is not a standard especially for i7 processors cause I have like an i3 or i5 with 2.5 ghz 🤔🤔🤔

The newest demo has a static sprite option now.  We'll announce it after more testing.


Thank you so much!


I've only just started the demo, but wow, I love the 3d graphics of the men!


I haven't even finished the last 3 games you guys released Lmao, Ya'll are so fast keep up the good work & stay healthy! ( ✧≖ ͜ʖ≖)

I have some great news for you, DraythDrake:

Gods of Love came out in 2020.  

Alpha Hole Prison came out in May.  (We just released a new DLC for it since it was such a huge success.)

Maelstrom came out in April. 

The last route of Sentimental Trickster, Rin's Route, was released in June.  

We just closed the Kickstarter for Hardcore Cruising in October.  We're hard at work on that game, and everything is on schedule so far.  

Dear Monster is scheduled for release next year.  Along with our other game, ManServant, these are the three we have in development.

I'm glad you enjoyed our other games!


when I check the "more information" for the games in itch.i, they say in development, not released?

sentimental trickster and gods of love actually aready finish in!

this looks amazing! will the final game have voice acting?

It might be a stretch goal on the Kickstarter.  In the meantime, if you're vision or reading impaired you can always press 'v' on your keyboard to have the dialogue read out loud


You guys are spewing out games faster than my wallet gets filled. Love the concept in this game, right up my ally.


I come here because of LoveNuts, but the writing feel like other Y Press's games, not Justyna. Is she leave the writing part for Y Press as well?

Oh hell yes. Now this is right up my alley. Gimma that dragon and fox. xD But especially Imbriss. Finally, some dragon boy romancin.

Also, I'm 100% down for Momo and his controlling dom self. Now that was hot and spicy! He's welcome to punish Allen to his hearts content. xD


OMG, I just love the arts and stories. Please keep up the good work. Momo-chan <3


The art is good. The animations a bit exaggerated sometimes (like, if the character is staying in a strong wind or moves restlessly). The whole "bonding" thing reminds too much of To Trust an Incubus game. I was hoping for a stronger story than that. It's an adult game, not a teen romance, after all. There needs to be a proper tension, conflict, in the story besides just "choose one of these 4 hotties, choose the right way to talk to him to find a good ending". I read a pretty good amount of gay romances recently, but most of them are so cheesy and trashy. There are only sooo few of then with a really good deep story. Try October by Michael Rowe, just to improve your tastes in the gay romance stories.

WAIT A DAMN SECONDDD, why does this actually look so good???? u cant drop these type of things on us out of nowhere i almost choked on my water. 
im so excited for this i might actually give money . i pray this one is a long playtime.
edit: after playing through the story is good but it needs more of a 'umph', wow,and 'bwam' yk? it kinda gives the same vibes as other games..idk if its just me. the art is just completely amazing though.


Things I am here for: thiiiiiiiiiiis.


Oh, this game sound like an interesting  one. Gonna check the demo
