Yaoi Metroidvania Style

Publicado

el

Most artists and companies that create or develop games focused on yaoi usually opt for the visual novel genre. This formula allows the players to take control of a character to make choices that can take him through different romantic routes with other characters. This format has existed for a long time and has produced many games that I consider personal favorites (Bachikoi and Camp Buddy). However, the yaoi artist “lvlv” is trying to create a new yaoi game that goes beyond simply reading dialogues and choosing answers.

The “Paradiso Guardian” project recently launched its Patreon website in which they describe their game as “Action RPG game heavily influenced by the Castlevania series, that also contains visual novel elements.” Lenga Valentine is the main character and it is your duty to help this Paradiso Guardian soldier to reclaim a floating castle that was recently invaded by mysterious enemy forces.

To let us know more about himself and Paradiso Guardian, lvlv allowed us to conduct a short interview that we share up next:

 

Q: Can you tell us a little about yourself? (age, nationality, hobbies or any other interesting fact about you)

A: I am a yaoi illustrator that lives in China! And I love playing games especially action-heavy types! I’ve always been dreaming to make my own game!

Q: Why did you become a yaoi artist?

A: I was told talented at drawing when I was young, and I realized I like boys at the same stage, too. The two-nature met each other and made me a yaoi artist. I think I am just drawing things that I adore and love.

Q: Paradiso Guardian is your newest and most ambitious project so far. What is the inspiration behind it?

A: Me and my partner all have our favorite action games. Although the game series we like are different, but we share same opinions on the gameplay. The main inspiration of Paradiso Guardian is Castlevania Symphony of The Night, which is so famous and get learn from by so many indie games out there. We decide to enhance the combat with some quick reaction system. Then we have Holy Flare system, the bullet time system works just like Witch Time in Bayonetta and Dodge Bullet Time in Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild.

But on the top of that, our main purpose is to make a sexy yaoi game that is wrapped with our shiny blinky fantasy! LOL

Q: What made you decide to use Lenga as your protagonist?

A: I am really into energetic young protagonists in Japanese manga. And I wish my protagonist can be cool and cute at the same time. So, I came up with this yellow-spiky-haired angel that punches enemies.

 

Q: Normally we only see yaoi videogames in the visual novel genre, do you think your project could expand on this?

A: Visual Novel is a great genre! I was thinking making this game into a VN when there were so many other VN games coming out. But I still want to make it in the form that I like. We are providing similar experience, just in a different way.

The Patreon website for Paradiso Guardian already has a SFW and NSFW downloadable demo. IN the demo you can get a taste of the combat system and the super-hot and sexy illustrations that lvlv is preparing for Lenga and the other characters within this world of angels and demons.

Finding a yaoi action game has been a dream of mine since many years ago (although I am still waiting for one that is fighting style like Dead or Alive) and it is very exciting to see someone who is finally creating a campaign to make it come true. The previous yaoi art of lvlv shows us his incredible ability for drawing and the game’s demo has also left me very eager to play more and more so that I can reach those sensual moments that the fighters will share after you have become the victor of a combat.

 

 

We wish lvlv the very best and hope that many of you can become patrons so that this videogame continues its development and we can have it as soon as possible in our hands in a near future. To learn more about lvlv, his art and new project follow these links.
