HentaiWriter's Magic Matchup Demo Now Up


A demo of HentaiWriter’s upcoming title Magic Matchup is now available. According to the developer, the demo comes just as the game nears its full release within the week.

Back at the beginning of March, on a very naughty corner of the internet, a new game was announced. That game was Magic Matchup, the first in a series of games by the creator of Future Fragments, HentaiWriter. Magic Matchup is due to be the first of HentaiWriter’s “Small Games” Patreon service, a store of sorts that will allow people to enjoy short titles.

The ethos of this Patreon is that no game would ever cost more than $5, with various tiers that will allow players to pledge for the game they want or simply support the project. With the service up and running, we’re now seeing the fruits of its labor.


Magic Matchup is a visual novel at its core, with some additional mechanics on top. The game puts you in the role of a college student, who has found himself in a very strange school. Rather than anything ordinary, this particular institution teaches magic. Unfortunately for you, you have no idea what you’re doing here, or if you’re even capable of using magic.

Of course, this wouldn’t be much of a story if it stopped there. Even worse, you’re almost immediately challenged to a duel. With no understanding of the magical arts and even less understanding of what’s going on, it looks like you’ve got to take a risk. Especially since the teacher offers herself up as a prize to enjoy.

Magic Matchup‘s additional mechanics come as a consequence of its premise. The magical duels are experienced in-game, with players working on a “rock paper scissors” style system. You’re given the choice of three attacks – blue, yellow and red – which function in much the same way as the version we all played as kids. Winning sees your opponent lose some clothing, so it’s probably a little bit more fun than your standard fair.


Behind the scenes, Magic Matchup boasts quite a lot for a small game. The fully voiced teacher, whom you’ll be duking it out with, has over 600 lines of fully voiced dialogue, along with three CG’s. Each CG has some variants too, so while it’s not much, it’s not bad for such a small title. The game also features an original soundtrack, so for $5 you’re not doing too bad.

Magic Matchup is supposed to be due out within the week . This information comes from HentaiWriter himself, who made the announcement on the April 7th. According to the team, the game was around 90% complete when it was first announced back in March, so we’ll likely see it very soon. HentaiWriter has kindly released a demo for potential players, which you can check out here.
