A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Buy Now$25.00 USD or more

Love Esquire is a romantic-comedy visual novel/dating sim with a touch of old-school RPG combat. In this game, you're not a famous knight, but a good-for-nothing squire who's on a quest to find man's greatest pleasure. Getting the girl won't be easy though, since most of them are waaaay out of your league!


So raise those stats, battle monsters, and unleash your full potential!



5 Dateable Waifus – Love Esquire's heroines are not just pretty faces! Each have their own unique backstories, plots, and dirty little secrets for you to uncover.


Turn-based Combat – You may not be a decent squire, but you have a number of unconventional techniques to keep your needy knight alive. Taunt, cheer, heal, and loot your way to victory!


Raise Stats - Git gud and become the ideal man by increasing your strength, charisma and intelligence. These traits not only affect your combat abilities, but also your relationships.


Forge Relationships – Amp up your squirely charm by giving gifts and whispering sweet nothings to your waifu. Get those romance points high enough and they'll open up in more ways than one.

Multiple Endings – What's waiting for your squire at the end of the journey? Getting laid or dying a lonely virgin? Be careful with those choices!

Fully Voiced – Hear your waifus fully express their undying love for you!


Mature Content – Love Esquire is a bit naughty and contains themes that your parents warned you about as a kid. You won't last five minutes playing this game!

Big fan of previous games, I like to play this game on Android. How is the progress on the Android version?

Hello! Love Esquire mobile is currently available on GooglePlay early access (Philippine region only for now). By July-August we'll try to see if we can open up the early access worldwide. :)

#phillipines

Hi! I just wanna know will the Android version be free or paid as well as the PC version? And is the release of Love Esquire mobile will still be in Q2 of 2020? Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic here in the Philippines

(+1)

Hello ChocoChewy. Just like The Letter, Love Esquire will be free to download for both iOS and Android. We're launching mobile early access on Q2 2020.

Hi! I just want to Ask when is Love Esquire coming on Android? Thanks!

(+1)

Hi! Love Esquire mobile will be out sometime Q1 or Q2 2020. :D

Looking forward to Q2 for mobile release ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Hi everyone! Love Esquire version V1.2.0 is up for Windows, Mac and Linux! Happy gaming! (◍•ᴗ•◍) ❤  

So, I want to buy this game on the Switch is that at all possible right now?

Hi LovePanda,

We're currently working on a console version, but we don't have a release date yet. Please stay tuned for updates! :)

I want to buy your game but when I hit the "buy now" button it says windows version.  Is there a full Mac version available?

(+1)

Hello worldpancake! On Steam we have the Mac version, but for Itch.io we will be updating the game to v1.2.0 and adding in a Mac and Linux version this week. :)

(+1)

Hi there.  I am really enjoying Love Esquire and think it is an excellent effort but unfortunately, I have run into a snag: the game freezes up after day 30 of month 4 and I am unable to progress further.  I am running version 1.0.0A (Steam).  Do you only get a maximum of four months to play or is this a bug?

Hello! I have version 1.0.0. How do I update to 1.0.3? And then to 1.1.0 when it comes out?

(+1)

Hey Squires, just a heads-up! v1.1.0 will be coming very soon for Windows/Mac/Linux! Thank you for your patience! <3

Any update on this? It's been so long and it's still at 1.03. Should I just buy it on steam instead since support on itch is spotty? Can saves transfer over?

Hello drmesa! Sorry for the delay! We will be updating the game to v1.2.0 and adding in a Mac and Linux version this week. :)

Давно не играл в столь дивную и прекрасную новеллу. Хочу сказать большое спасибо создателям данной игры.  Вы потрудились на славу, ваша работа чертовски крута, а повествование и персонажи Love Esquire не дают заскучать. Надеюсь в будущем вы выпустите ещё много интересных проектов. )

(+1)

Thank you so much! We are glad you loved the game! (◍•ᴗ•◍) ❤  

Спасибо вам большое! Мы рады, что вам понравилась игра!

hello!

I downloaded the game from here, but how can I transfer the game to steam?

Hi ozawashuri! Apologies for the late response! I don't think you can transfer the game to Steam, unless you bought it from there. ^^;

(-1)

I already talked to one of the devs and they gave me a steam key, thank you for responding though

(+1)(-14)

25$ what im 14 want me to steal my moms credit card im just gonna find a free version and hope i dont get a virus 

(+1)

If you're 14, you shouldn't be playing a game like this lol. Go play League of Legends or something.

shiiiiii im been doin this since i was 12

(+2)(-2)

Can i still received future update if i purchase this?

I think you're better off doing it on steam as updates usually get pushed there a bit faster than itch.

(+2)

Hi ji19 and Rika! Apologies for the late response! 

Itch.io will be getting updates, but not as fast as the Steam counterpart because it takes a lot of time for us to upload the whole game in their server. 

But as of writing, Itch.io has the latest 1.0.3a version that Steam also has. :)

(+3)

I just wanted to congralute you, your work is pretty sweet! (just got my copy, you have no idea how long I had been looking for something like this).

I do not want to impose, so please take this as a random question:

I once heard something about a big rpg expansion that was floating around as a possiblity for a DLC if your game did well, is that still up?

Anyway, keep up the good work and feel very proud of the awesomeness you have achieved!

Hi terraproxy, we apologize for the late response!

If the game did super awesome we will consider adding the RPG Expansion as a DLC! :D Although right now we can't promise anything since we're still far from breaking even. Please stay tuned for updates, though! And thank you so much for your kind words and support! ❤

Hi,, will this be available in app store(i phone)?

Hi Dave! Sorry for the late response!

LE mobile (iOS/Android) will be out early 2020, hopefully! :)

I don't know if anyone else having this bug but in battle the animation of character are extra small an the battle locks up the game

Hi Paul! We will be updating the game very soon to v1.1.0. Please let us know if you're still encountering this problem after the patch. :)

Hello does this version require any sort of mod or patch like the steam version? (still downloading so I'm unsure) 

This version of the game on itch.io does indeed require a mod for 18+ content. (A disclaimer of it not being the 18+ version along with a way to mod it would be nice devs.) I confirmed it earlier today and the only way to apply the mod is to find the files online in a roundabout manner since the developers did not bother to create a separate link for itch.io.

After hours of playtime, I saved the game the day before an event triggered (Month 4 Day 21).  I then applied the mod, booted up the game again to replay the scene, and found nothing had changed. It might be because of how the scene played out that caused the mod to not work (it skipped a day without saving - Amy's route) or that the mod might require an entirely new save. So be aware that you might need to restart your game.

Dang man that's rough! Any suggestions for where to find the mod? 

I don't want to link directly to it (due to the nature & question of its legality). I can give you vague directions though. Search for "love esquire mod" in a search engine and it's a few searches down with the website being a forum. You'll need an account to access the thread but other than that you should be set.

Sweet! thanks for the pointers man, I was able to find it... and find out that there is a 1.0.1 patch, which doesn't appear to be on here? I wonder if they stopped supporting itch.io? Or did they just name the build different on Steam and here? Odd. 

(1 edit)

Great that you found it. Apparently there is a 1.0.2 version that has been out on steam since the 12th - that build has some bug fixes and quality of life updates. I don't know what's happening here on the itch.io version since it says they updated the page 4 days ago (the same day of the 1.0.2 release on steam). So itch.io customers are getting shafted or they're having some difficulties. Hopefully, it's the latter.

I'd recommend anyone interested in buying this game to get the steam version. 

It's not DRM-free but the ease of access to get the R18+ mod, and future updates on the dot make it worth the inconveniences. Also you get the added benefit of trying it out for 2 hours and refunding it if you don't like it.

(1 edit)

haha too bad the demo cut short

will the game ever be available on android? 

Yes. Mobile version will be out around early 2020.

This game will be available on GOG as well? (if you don't mind me asking... )

(+1)

No plans yet of a GOG release. If there is, we'll announce as soon as possible. :)

Ok, Thanks for the fast reply :D

Would love to record some gameplay footage of your game just before release, do you give access to content creators?

(1 edit)

When Is The Game Fully Released?

Hi PigPoopers! We will be announcing a release date within the next few weeks! Please stay tuned! Love Esquire will be coming out this year! :D

(+1)

The only part where my heart stopped beating was when it suddenly told me that the demo is over.
I hate you for fucking my heart over
I love you for making this game
Keep up the good work, also, how much is the game going to cost?

Hahaha! No worries, the game will be releasing very soon so you can play it to your heart's content! ;D Also, it would be priced at $24.99 USD with a 10% launch discount. Please stay tuned! (◍•ᴗ•◍)❤

can you download on chrome?

Yes, you should be able to.

Hello Arrowstyle! Thanks so much for playing Love Esquire! We're glad you enjoyed it!

Please don't forget to follow the game here on Itch.io, and get notified when it gets released! ❤

I've downloaded the alpha demo for Windows 10, but it won't let start it cause I keep getting a missing app.info message every single time. Does anyone know how to fix this?  

(-1)

Hello LingDaKingofXing! Sorry for the late response. Please email us a screenshot of your problem at john@yangyangmobile.com and we'll do our best to help you. :)

It started working for me last night, so everything is fine now. The demo is amazing, and I'm excited to see what the finished game will look like!! :)

Oh, yay! That's great news. Thanks so much for playing the game! Please don't forget to follow us here on Itch.io, so you'll get notified when the game gets released! ^^

Just played the demo and it was great! Please release the full game soon.

I also wanted to ask how much this game is gonna cost (or if maybe it's gonna be for free~) and why there haven't been any news about the game recently.

Hi Worldgamer! Sorry for the late response! The game will cost $24.99 USD with a 10% launch discount.

We're also looking at a September 2019 release, but if that fails, the game would most likely be released at early 2020 instead. You can find more development updates about the game in our Kickstarter updates

Thanks so much for playing the game! Please don't forget to follow us here on Itch.io, so you'll get notified when Love Esquire gets released! ❤

oh no

oh yes

wish demo was a lot longer'

Hi Paul! Sorry for the late response! We'll try to see if we can release a longer version of the demo a few weeks before release. 

Either way, thanks so much for playing the game! Please don't forget to follow us here on Itch.io, so you'll get notified when Love Esquire gets released! ❤

but I do understand it was mainly for the display of mechanics.too bad my skills couldn't help in design of the game sculpting an makeup fx rarely help in game design outside concept designs

even though it was just the demo, i thought it was great!

Hi blueboy! Sorry for the late response, and thank you so much for your kind words! We're happy you liked the game! Please don't forget to follow us here on Itch.io, so you'll get notified when Love Esquire gets released! :D

Played the Demo and what can I say? I like everything about this game! The art, the gameplay, the humor, the characters(Princess Beatrice is my personal choice, I love stories about newbie knight and rich ice queen princess warming up to newbie knight as story goes on and their relationship progress).

... Hhhmm, I guess the only thing I didn't like was the fact that our Squire didn't have a default name. Don't get me wrong I'm not against the idea of Nameable Hero to suit the player, but I just like to keep Protagonist's name canon name by default, since well... It feels more natural and canon I supposed(I hopre that "Squire" is not his default name...)?

And I guess I wonder if the whole "harem ending" will be a thing, since I find it hard to believe we will be able to pick up 5 female characters in just 4 months. I also wonder if there is going to be a some sort of "true ending"?

Overall, definitely going to buy game on Steam when it will be released in 2019(But we don't know the detailed data! T_T ) and go for Princess Beatrice route(And mabe the harem route if it's turnd out to be a true route, but I prefer Beatrice only so far)!

Doing god's work Yangyang Mobile! I wish you good luck!

P.S- Hugh is a MC's homie, though he has a weird name. Oh... it's a Germanic name...  It was common among Frankish and French nobility? Hhhmmm.... Is there is some secret meaning? I wonder if our Squire's name is going to be something like that...

I'm not at all affiliated with the developers. I'm like you just very interested in the game. If you go to their twitter or patreon I think was where I found it. They had posted an update saying that while it was planned to come out this month (obviously that didn't happen) they will have to delay to polish it up, but they said everything is basically done. So hopefully maybe late next month.

(+1)

Hello svolozhanin7! Super duper sorry for the late response, and thank you so much for your kind words! Unfortunately, Squire is the MC's default name. And yes, there will be a harem ending! I guess you could say that the harem ending is the game's true ending, since there's important information in the harem ending that you won't find in any other route.

We're doing our very best to release the game this September! But in case we don't make it, our next window for release would be sometime early 2020 to avoid the barrage of video game sales and triple A releases that come with -ber months.

Overall, we're very happy you liked the game despite its flaws! Please don't forget to follow us here on Itch.io, so you'll get notified when Love Esquire gets released! Or wishlist us on Steam! :D ❤

Better late than never, right? *Sigh* Well, I'm man of my word, I will follow the canon no matter what name/route I have to take. I guess Squire's parents were already having a low opinion on him when they were giving him a name. Heh. ;)

Anyway, I add Love Esquire in my follow/whishlist since 11.05.19 and I can't wait for the game! I have yet to see the price in Steam when I play to buy it, but I hope it's not too high.

I was also reading you guys on Twitter when I find out about "The Letter" another game that you were working in 2017. I didn't check it out yet, but if I will get some free time and money I will buy Deluxe Edition.

And that's about it, I guess. Have a good day and keep the good work!

(1 edit)

Love Esquire will be $24.99 with a 10% launch discount. We also have plans on bundling it up with The Letter for a cheaper price. ^^

Thank you so much! Have a great day as well! 

I have a issue or glitch you guys might want to check out. I downloaded the game on my mircosoft 32-bit laptop and launched the game. The game opened but all the comes up is a white screen. I can hear background music but all I get is a white screen. Fix this please?

Hi FlakeT, sorry for the late response! Please send us your laptop specs to john@yangyangmobile.com, along with the description of your problem, so we could double-check. It might be because your laptop does not meet the game's system requirements.

amazing game this was.thanks a lot i enjoyed.

No problem! Please don't forget to follow us and get notified when the full game comes out! :)

The character artwork is great and the background art even better. The player ui looks nice and polished. The opening cinematic looked great. Didn't get to see a lot of the combat or other game play mechanics to know completely what it'll be like when its complete. Overall the demo made me very excited to see what the full game will be like! I'll definitely follow future projects if this ends up good!

Thank you so much for your kind words! Please don't forget to follow us and get notified when the game gets released! We hope the full game wouldn't disappoint! :)

I am a big fan of your previous work of art "the letter" and i am wondering when will you release the full version of this game? Will it take until next year i can't wait that long Hahaha!

Thank you so much! Love Esquire will be released within the year. Please stay tuned for updates! :)

so full game?

Hello, the one we have right now is just the demo. The game is still in development and is slated for a 2019 release. :)

ok thanks

No problem. Please don't forget to follow the game and stay tuned for announcements. :)

I'm trying to download that game for Windows but it's saying no compatible uploads were found for it. Help?

Hi Hobi, may we know the version of your Windows?

Windows 10

I am able to install the game from the browser, but I cannot install it inside of the Itch app.

Hi Hobi,  thanks so much for your response! Since it's working if it's downloaded from the browser, you might have to ask Itch.io directly about it because the problem might be in the Itch app itself. >_< For our end, we double-checked all our uploaded files and everything seems to be working fine...

Ah, okay! Thank you, I'll try to look into it a bit more! I can't wait for the game to be released, the demo was so interesting!

(+1)

Thank you so much! :)
