Left: Jouya Askari, a noble and a dealer of herbs and spices. A bit silly she likes new ‘pets’ and tends to be masochistic. 

Right: A girl unaffectionately called ‘Monkey’ although that’s not her name. She only came to Alabast recently.

Two characters from Menagerie, that’s all for teasers for now! Next update will be a more in depth preview of the characters and what the game is about.

Yes, Menagerie is going to have explicit sex, Dizzy Hearts is also going to have sex as part of the story but I think for Menagerie the actual sex act is more focused in the story whereas with Dizzy Hearts, sex is the natural effect of two people in love with each other. For Menagerie we really want to tie the sex to the story as closely as possible. The common misconception is that plot can’t exist with sex in the story, that it cheapens it. I disagree, sex actually enhances the story greatly in my opinion, it’s more ridiculous to assume people don’t have sex. 

But the story is really enhanced by establishing a connection to the character and that makes the porn and the plot mingle together very well. The characters aren’t a random dice roll of archetypes you can have sex with, they’re all interesting and different in their own fun ways, it’s also going to interesting to do these lewd scenes and watch people talk about the characters afterwards because they were cool.

The Menagerie ties in with Vagabond thematically, which was partially funded by the Dizzy Hearts Kickstarter. These two stories are completely unrelated to each other and there really isn’t any overlap except for taking place in Radiant Period and at the same relative time as DH and Vagabond. You get a good sense of what Alabastian elves are like. Vagabond is really just a bigger story than Dizzy Hearts and the reason we did Toko, Menagerie before just finishing Dizzy Hearts is because we want Dizzy Hearts to be the best it can be, grow as a studio, and really challenge a lot of cultural misconceptions when it comes to sexuality. (Also Menagerie is just plain lewd in a fun way.)

In the desert city of Alabast, there exists a massive structure referred to as ‘The Sail’, which separates the nobles from the lowly commoners. In this ivory tower however, there are secrets the nobles keep even from each other. Deep below The Sail, there exists a collection of sorts called ‘The Menagerie’. Obsessed by novelty, the elves of Alabast even go as far as to collect exotic artifacts, creatures and even other peoples from across the world. Here there is nothing and no one on display without a price.

The Menagerie is a new visual novel from Lupiesoft and features multiple character routes, adult content, monster girls and more!

I need this.

Star of her own TV show in Hell called “Aces High!” She’s one of the strongest demons in Hell and definitely the most popular. Stanza of Middle Circle, she’s been in a funk ever since her show ended.
"I feel more like Aces Low these days."

One of the three Stanza’s of Hell (One of which being Pellatrix). Her name is Sweet Tooth Benny and she’s the Stanza of Inner Circle, she fights with a giant pipe organ named Queen Duluth, though in battle she mostly wears her instrument as gigantic gauntlets. She’s one of the strongest demons in hell and a pivotal player in Toko’s story.

I really, really loved Toko, both for the art/story and for the fact that it's hard as heck finding any good VN's that actually match my sexuality (lesbian). Most of what I HAVE found is plot-deficient porn (not that I always mind that, but some story is nice...), so I was wondering if you knew of/could recommend any good ones?

Thanks, it means a lot to me! If you’ve not played Sono Hanabira than I don’t really know what I could recommend to you. That’s pretty much the extent of what exists in this scene. There’s some new stuff that comes out, I think companies are starting to see it as a growing market. Hopefully we’ll see more companies like Yurin Yurin taking this risk and making more things like Sonohana.
