A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Love Esquire is a romantic-comedy visual novel/dating simulator, with a nostalgic 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 waaay out of your league!

To make things worse: you have a few months left before this huge war happens, and the only thing you know is how to milk cows. Good luck cramming years worth of training into four months! If it's any consolation, you get a medal if you die. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

No one believes that a lowly squire can save the world while banging – err, bagging – the girl of his dreams... but with a shitton of dumb luck, well... you might just prove them wrong!

Welcome to the world of Love Esquire, and may the fertility god have mercy on your virginity.

 Nameable Hero – Whose name will these girls cry out during those scenes? You decide!

 5 Dateable Waifus – More than just pretty faces, the ladies of Love Esquire have their own unique personalities, story arcs, and backstories!

 Turn-based combat with a twist – As a squire, you have a number of “unconventional” ways to assist your needy knight. Properly time your actions to unleash the full potential of your skills which are simply... out of this world!

 Manage your day – Allocate what little time you have in this world by forcing yourself to socialize or doing your job as a squire barely living on minimum wage. 

 Git gud by raising stats – Stats will have an impact on your skills during combat, and they also affect your relationship with the girls. In other words, shape up to be the ideal man for the best results!

 Forge Relationships – Get to know your waifu on a personal level by being around her and talking about stuff. Sure, she’ll think you’re a creep at first, but persistence is key! As she eventually warms up to you, find out how there’s more to her than meets the eye. 

 Multiple Endings – What’s waiting for your squire at the end of the journey? Make decisions that will end up great or turn out to be otherwise.

 Partially Voiced – So you can hear your waifus partially express their partially undying love for you!

 Mature Content – This game contains subjects and themes your parents warned you about as a kid. 

 Moddable Content – The game will support simple modding on release. To be discussed in a future update.

 Original Soundtrack – We want you to experience the feels while playing this game, and our soundtrack will see to that!

Follow Love Esquire's development and see it to its completion!

I love this game, 9/10 just by looking at the demo, but I REALLY wish in the picture would be more.. appropriate or give them stuff to wear man.

I also thought it was cool that the sister was an option, cause back then it was a bit common i guess


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?  


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!! :) 


It started working for me last night, so everything is fine now! The demo is amazing, and I'm excited to see what the full 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.


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!

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!


Thank you so much! :)

I usually don't like these kind of games and when my freind talled me about this one, i expected to try it for like 5 m and then totally forget about it, but i ened up wanting more.                                                                                                                                                                                       It doesn't take itself seriously, the charachters are likeable , the art is amazing and the comedy is on point , i'am excited for the full release and i hope the best for you guys, keep it up.

Thank you so much!! We hope the full version wouldn't disappoint you!

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

Loved it! Only complaint - I wish there was more of it, haha. 

Eagerly awaiting the full version <3

Haha, we're working hard to give you guys the full version as soon as possible! (•̀o•́)ง

Thank you so much for your support. Please don't forget to follow the game and get notified when it gets released. ^-^

i like cartoon art stile and the trailer so IM DOWNLOADING IT.

Thank you, we hope you enjoy it. :)

really loved The Letter and I can't wait for this one. just one question though, are you planning on releasing it for android in the future?


Yes! Just like with The Letter, it would be first released on PC, and then mobile a few months after. :)

i say no to it because it contribute to the same stereotype tht men and boys should be ugly and have muscl so that they look even more ugly , absolutelly no sexy clothes for the boy character , very disgusting presentation with the same old stereotype that boys should be ugly because of the muscl and short hair , very gross character , absolutelly no cute character or face for the boy character  , if the boy character muscl is being deleted it increase his beauty , if is added hair tail to the boy his atractiveness increase and his beauty too , but yet that did not happened so thumbdown for the ugliness boy chracter


Thank you for your input. :)


I missed the campaign, so I  pledged $25 through PayPay two days ago. Do I still get the rewards for the tier? 
In any case, please keep up the great work!


Yes, thank you so much for your support! You should receive a BackerKit invite via your Paypal email in the next few days. Please look out for it! :)


Hi Devs!

If I may say, The Letter was incredible.  Thank you very much for such an amazing story and experience.  The heart attack-inducing moments didn't go unappreciated by my amused wife, when I screamed like a wuss on many occasions throughout the playthrough.  >_>

I'm currently sitting on thirty bucks in my Steam Wallet, curiously wondering when Love Esquire may be released.  Steam keeps saying 2018, and I'm rabidly checking for it each and everyday on my 'follow' and 'wishlist'.

Any news for nerds like us?

Thank you again!  Have a wonderful New Year!


Hi Pretts,

Thank you so much for playing The Letter! We're so glad you loved it! 

Love Esquire will be releasing this year, around mid-2019. Please don't forget to follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We normally post dev updates there.

Thanks and Happy New Year to you too!! ❤

author i wonder why are you avoiding my questions? is it because it is all a lie? ; ) :p

Question answered below. In addition, it's only been 13 hours since you posted your comment. Please give us some time to answer due to time zone differences. Thanks!

The Kickstarter is over, but you can still pledge via Paypal! :) https://www.paypal.me/YangyangMobile

If this game is as good as I hear, I can't wait to play it.

Thank you! We hope the final version does not disappoint! :D


is there nudity?

The game will have lots of fanservice scenes, but nothing that shouldn't be shown will be shown in the official version. Uncensored patches are welcome though, since the game will be moddable. :)



You should support their Kickstarter! If you back them on their game tier within the first 24 hours, you get their previous game for free!

Okay so this seems... so crazy and epic! XD

Must follow so I'll be stalking the progress - it's so promising, and I just love how you describe the features haha. On a more serious note, the art is very pretty. The stained glass relationship page is so charming too

Hehe, thank you so much Konoi! ^_^ We will be launching the game's Kickstarter tomorrow, and we're counting on you to help us spread the word! The more support we get, the crazier and more epic the game would be!! ♡
