Hello does this version require any sort of mod or patch like the steam version? (still downloading so I'm unsure)
Log in with itch.io to leave a comment.
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.
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.
haha too bad the demo cut short
will the game ever be available on android?
This game will be available on GOG as well? (if you don't mind me asking... )
No plans yet of a GOG release. If there is, we'll announce as soon as possible. :)
Would love to record some gameplay footage of your game just before release, do you give access to content creators?
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
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?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!! :)
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! ❤
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!
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 email@example.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. :)
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?
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...
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.
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 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! :)
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!
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!
is this really free download?
I LOVE THIS GAME ABSOLUTELY TOO MUCH :DD

keep up the good work
If ever you decide to play it, please don't forget to share us the link! We look forward to it! ^^
I can't what till the full verson
Thank you for sharing! We look forward to it! ^^
If this game is as good as I hear, I can't wait to play it.
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. :)
HOLY CRAP I CAN'T CONTAIN THE HYPE AAAHHHH IT'S ALREADY SO GOOD
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
