Sentimental Trickster is a BL/yaoi visual novel with humor, heart and occasional awkwardness. It puts you in charge of Haru as he moves to a big city and tries not to get himself killed. Who knows, maybe he will even find the right guy along the way. That is, if he doesn’t scare him off.

The game relies heavily on the player's choices. Those choices include which guy you want to be with, but also ethical issues: what you think is right to do at the time. All the people you encounter have scars, and it's up to you to heal or rub salt.

Sentimental Trickster was made in order to give English-speaking players an experience akin to what Nitro+Chiral games provide, but with a lighter touch.

- An engaging choice system (check out the demo!) that will affect the whole game;
- Lots of special scenes that change dramatically, depending on your playing style;
- Lovable protagonist with a great sense of humor;
- Complex characters that don’t wear their hearts on their sleeves;
- Created by one person (Joell Joelly kindly agreed to take care of promotion);
- You can bully hipsters!

Imagine that you wake up one day and realize you’re not happy. This is how this game came to life.

My name is Justyna Pustelnik and I’m 30. When I go to anime conventions, I feel old. After all, I already have two careers behind me. I was an English teacher and then a copywriter at a successful marketing agency. I was good at both, but neither made me truly happy. So, I thought about what did. I’ve always loved Japanese animation. It didn’t start with One Piece or Bleach, but rather silly series like Kaiketsu Zorro, Dash! Kappei or Majokko Megu-Chan.

My first encounter with yaoi/shounen ai was in Fushigi Yuugi. I’ve been captivated ever since. Drawing BL manga has become a favorite pastime, but I’ve always been discouraged from treating it as anything more than a hobby. I listened... that is until the day I quit my job and started making Sentimental Trickster. Now I work 10 hours a day, (usually) 7 days a week. I’ve never been happier. I often listen to audiobooks during work. My favorite series are The Dresden Files and Sandman Slim.

Panda Waifu or Lazuli .

We will try our best to help with all the questions you may have!



After the release we will start to work on Steam background for your profile; those will feature backgrounds and characters from Sentimental Trickster.

We will also make Steam emoticons based on the character and will add steam achievements!

We are also thinking of bringing out extra story content. but this will remain an idea for the time being.

That sounds very promising! I cannot wait for the release! Steam definitly lacks some BL visual novels in my opinion, and I'm glad you found the time and the motivation to develop one! :)
