Meet the minotaur from the old Greek legend, grow closer to him and manage a magical hotel.
Minotaur Hotel is romance story that mixes literary fiction with mythology and urban fantasy. Its romance is accessible and enjoyable to all lovers of gay content, but to those with an archeological or inquisitive mindset this game is a mystery built on top of Greek mythology, epic poetry and contemporary literature.
As you play, your choices — both towards the minotaur, Asterion, and as a manager of the hotel — will snowball into an unique playthrough and experience.
"This Halloween? We're Exploring the Haunted Brothel" is like a furry bara Paper Mario. In this game you'll explore the eponymous Haunted Brothel with your two protagonists, Jasper and Varahn.
While the art and adult content is certainly worth it, what makes this game really remarkable to me is its comedic writing, attention to detail and, most importantly, the sweet, tender and heartwarming moments between the two main characters — how they constantly display affection for each other even in the kinkiest of circumstances and check for safe consent.
This tenderness makes the whole package come together in a way that's both sexual and heartfelt. Really worth your time, but do keep in mind the game is early in development.
Reamus, a young cougar from overseas, is living a simple life as an antiquarian's assistant when he's turned into a magic-user — a pervader as they are called — and thrust into a life threatening plot.
Pervader is the best example around of gay content exploring a dark, ominous fantastical setting. Its world building is solid and will be particularly enticing for readers who enjoy stories such as Lord of the Rings.
Play as Killigan, a bull barbarian on a quest to follow a treasure map with a cast of dateable companions.
A fantasy story that will take you through richly-constructed lands with their unique characters, all with great art, writing and some combat throw in. Your choices affect Killigan; will you play him as a barbarian or as a diplomat?
Great for readers looking for an imaginative, engaging adventure.
Mutant Alley is a short, 3D erotic game where you have a sexual encounter with a dinosaur. There are other similar games, but Mutant Alley distinguishes itself a bit by the quality of its 3D model (very nice work there), subject matter (dinosaurs are seriously underrated) and, I'd say, polish. It looks good, it works well. It's a very specialised, niche product.
Nerus is a mystery and romance visual novel inspired from the likes of Umineko: When They Cry and The House in Fata Morgana.
It focuses on presenting and developing an intriguing universe populated by "shapeshifters" — beings which, as the name implies, can change their form but carry mysteries that go well beyond their appearances.
While the romance in Nerus is strong and compelling, its strength as a narrative is in its long-lasting mysteries. It's the kind of story which will have you piecing together details for days or weeks.
Quite possibly the most honest game on this list, Small on Top is a light-hearted, Undertale-esque 18+ RPG that focuses on and explores all the eroticism behind, well, small guys topping bigger men.
Spedumon's single-minded dedication to a specific erotic subject is engaging and captivating. An absolute must-play for readers of bara who like big, manly men bottoming.
A wolf mechanic sets out to get back at his ex-wife for being a neglectful mother the only way he can: a petty revenge plot that'll have him fucking her latest boyfriend!
This simple, sitcom-esque premise kickstarts a story of surprising emotional depth. Miles and "Boomer's" story is full of heartfelt moments that might just leave you wistfully looking at the screen.
Shelter is a comedy and as a work it's quite comfortable with the idea. Just as it starts it runs up to you with a dog's cheerfulness and gives you the jokes, shenanigans, toys and all the good stuff people like.
It's honest, and the art of making people laugh should not be underestimated. We all need some lighthearted shenanigans every once in a while.
Psychic Connections follows the framework set by games like Morenatsu and Extracurricular Activities, in the sense that it's a slice of life story with a cast of young men.
It distinguishes itself, however, by adding a little bit of spice with its supernatural twist — the cast of dateable bachelors are all psychics, whose particular gifts play a role in the story. The experience, overall, should be both familiar, in how its built on a tried and true formular, and fresh with its twist.
