8 Best Yaoi Games That You Should Know Update 06/2022

best yaoi games

The world of yaoi and BL games is small and dark, and it’s hard for people who speak English to get into it. But if you are determined and know where to look, you can still find English-language visual novels that are fun to play, even if they use genre clichés and have crazy plots.

Here is a list of the 10 best English yaoi games. Some of these have professional English versions that you can buy, and others use fan patches, but none of them are for people who are easily scared (or anyone under 18). A lot of these games are very different, and how much you like them mostly depends on your own tastes.

Silver Chaos

Silver Chaos

Might lost his parents during a terrible war with the demon Hadeus. He wants to join the Royal Army. One day while he is training, he falls off a cliff and hurts himself badly. Might’s childhood friend Adonis uses a dark spell to save his life, but when Might wakes up, Adonis is nowhere to be found. Might meets a lot of beautiful strangers on his way to find Adonis. Some of them want to help him, but others try to stop him.

Silver Chaos is a more typical fantasy title, which is rare in the yaoi genre and makes for a great change of pace. Silver Chaos is a pretty old game, which you can kind of tell by looking at it, but the art is still beautiful. This game comes with an English patch.

Sukisho! First Limit

Suki na Mono wa Suki Dakara Shouganai!! is a popular BL series that most people know as Sukisho! because it was turned into an anime in 2005. First Limit is the first of four games that go deeper into the characters and storyline introduced in the anime. It gives the show’s lighter moments more depth and drama to balance them out.

The story is about Sora and his strange roommate Sunao, who he is supposed to have known since he was a child but doesn’t remember. It seems easy, right? But both Sora and Sunao have other selves that can take over whenever they want, and they are also in love with each other. Sukisho! With a patch, you can play First Limit in English. However, none of the other games have been translated yet.

Enzai – Falsely Accused

Enzai – Falsely Accused

Guys is a small-time thief in early 19th-century France. He is put in prison for life for killing a man he has never met. While he is in prison and being tortured in every way, he tries to find evidence and information about the case that will show he is innocent.

The style of the art and the brutal themes are not for everyone. Enzai is known for being one of the most bizarre yaoi games. It was the first yaoi game ever to be sold in the US, and there haven’t been many others since. So, you can buy it from JAST USA or somewhere else, depending on where you look.

Absolute Obedience

Absolute Obedience is made by the same people who made Enzai. The story isn’t as serious as in Enzai, but the game is still pretty hard. It has two different stories, and you switch between playing as Kia and Louise. Kia and Louise are both men who run an agency that helps their clients deal with troublesome young men.

Absolute Obedience is set up in an interesting way. The player has to take on different requests from the agency, which tell their own stories. Once you’ve done all of the requests and gotten a “A” on each one, you’ll be able to see two more endings that tell more about the main characters’ pasts. It’s a fun twist on the usual way visual novels are made. Absolute Obedience can be bought on its own or as a package with Enzai.

Bacchikoi!

Bacchikoi!

Toshu Kanada, a transfer student, is asked to join a baseball team that is falling apart. As the player, you decide what he should do to help the team and his relationships with teammates Ichiru and Masaru. The art in Bacchikoi! is really nice. It reminds me a lot of the style used in a lot of sports anime, which is great because it’s basically the yaoi version of a visual novel.

Bacchikoi! is really cool because it has a baseball mini game in addition to the usual visual novel gameplay. It’s a simple timing game where you have to click or tap the screen when the ball lines up with the target, but I think it’s a great addition. The game’s endings also tell you how many points you got, so you know how to try to get different ones. On the website of the game’s creator, BlackMonkey Pro, you can find both Bacchikoi! and its expansion, Back, in English.

SleepOver

The next game on the list is called SleepOver and is also made by BlackMonkey Pro. It’s a simple story: Kano has loved his best friend Aki for a long time, but he hasn’t had the guts to tell him. One night when it’s raining, he gets a chance to be alone with Aki and tell her how he really feels.

There is only one love interest in SleepOver, which makes it interesting. There are still more than one ending, though, depending on what you choose. SleepOver is one of the more fun games on the list. It has the same cute art style as Bacchikoi! and can be bought in English from the BlackMonkey Pro website.

Togainu No Chi

Togainu No Chi

After the third world war, Japan is split into two groups and has become a crime-filled wasteland. A young man named Akira plays a game called “[email protected]” on the streets of this dark city. He has moved up in the rankings enough to be asked to play Igra, a different game. If he wins, he could build a multimillion-dollar drug empire. If he loses, he will die.

Chess of Blades

Rivian Varrison is a famous nobleman’s son. He was recently forced to go to a big party for the king’s birthday. He has met a lot of interesting and sometimes shady people. But on the second day of the party, something happens that makes a mess of everything.
