Destroying your childhood one article at a time.


A young woman finds an exciting new world in the erotic otomege Speakeasy.

Speakeasy is an otome game set in 1920s Los Angeles during the Prohibition era. The heroine, Cora West, comes from wealthy parents that want to force her into an arranged marriage. Tired of her parents and social class deciding her lot in life, she runs away from home and ends up meeting Vincent Harlowe, the owner of an underground speakeasy. She’ll be introduced to a world of jazz, illegal liquor, and debauchery that she never would have seen back in her gated community. While everything looks glamorous on the surface, there’s danger hidden beneath. The choices you make will decide if Cora finds love or loses herself to vanity and excess.

The game will have four-to-seven love interests if certain stretch goals are met. There will be multiple erotic scenes, three CGs and three possible endings in each route. If those stretch goals are met, there can be six routes, including one yuri route and one polyamorous route.










Open Late Games needs $19,000 to fund Speakeasy. If they reached their goal before the deadline, they have eight stretch goals to reach for:

At $24,000, they will make Dahlia Reyes a romantic route. Cora knows that Dahlia isn’t fond of her, but maybe she can be part of this clairvoyant’s future.

At $30,000, they will add a polyamorous route for Maxim Yurov and Nika Drozdov. These two men are still affected by the horrors they’ve seen in their war-torn country. Can Cora ease the pain in their hearts?

At $38,000, a clean version of the game will be made. If this goal is met, they will not fade to black during the sex scenes and explicit content. Instead, Open Late Games will rewrite a version of the script without the 18+ content and give it a more modest version.

At $44,000, MC customization will be added. This function will allow you to turn off all visual representations of Cora and change the heroine’s name to whatever you want it to be.

At $49,000, character sprites will be animated.

At $52,000, six more SFW CGs will be added to the game and each route will receive one CG each.

At $56,000, six more NSFW CGs will be added to the game and each route will receive one CG each.

At $106,000, Open Late Games will release a Nintendo Switch port of the clean version of Speakeasy.
