Going in dry


The great quest to get laid has begun in Love Esquire, an ecchi hybrid of romantic, comedic, dating sim elements, with RPG gameplay, now available on Steam.

Love Esquire was developed by Yangyang Mobile, an indie game developer based in the Philippines known best for their multi-route horror visual novel, The Letter. We reported on the Kickstarter for Love Esquire last year, and by the end of the campaign, Yangyang Mobile raised a little over $70,000 of their $10,000 goal. The game has since been finished and, thanks to the stretch goals, is fully voiced, and has animated CGs and backgrounds.

In Love Esquire, you don’t play as the hero who saves the world and earns all the glory; you’re the hero’s squire, and it’s your job to keep him alive. What’s even more unfortunate is that, in a few months, you’re going to be shipped off to war and you’re still a virgin. With the time you have left, find the girl of your dreams, give her gifts, and get on her good side.

The combat is turn-based. As a squire, you can buff and heal the hero, and taunt and steal from the enemies. Your methods aren’t common for a squire, but they are effective. To improve your stats, go to the training grounds, like the archives or barracks. Boosting stats will also help with forging relationships, as the local girls will like you more if you have specific stats to be their ideal man.

Yangyang Mobile could not provide an official uncensored patch due to the Philippines’ pornography laws. While Love Esquire is just ecchi in terms of sexual content, the developer has made the game moddable through the Steam workshop, so fanmade patches are possible.
