End of 2013 Monster Girl Game Roundup

Edit: Apparently Violated Hero 4 is also being released this year, on Dec 31. The spec page says it’s going to be wide screen this time too.

All right, it’s been forever since I’ve done one of these. There are tons of monster girl games and visual novels being made, but like any genre, most of them aren’t so great. Here are a few that are all right at least.

1. Tokyo TENMA

Tokyo TENMA is a Shin Megami Tensei-style monster girl RPG with first-person dungeon crawling gameplay. You recruit girls (by having sex with them) and construct your party with the ones you like best. The dungeons are fairly well designed, although the game is extremely easy so there’s no tension. Plus you can save at any time. I beat the final boss in one hit, although there is a (supposedly) harder bonus dungeon. The story is paper thin, and this is only the first part of what will apparently be a longer series.

On the hentai side, this game is great if you like stuff like Violated Hero. Half the monsters are sadists who dominate the protagonist; the other half are masochists who let him take the lead so there’s something for everyone here. All the sex is consensual, but the sadist types go a bit further than the protagonist signed up for. The only complaint I have is the lack of sound effects, but good art and scene design makes up for it.

2. Monster Alchemist

This is one of the most polished and well-designed RPGMaker games I’ve ever seen. That said, the art is surprisingly bad and the scenes have no sound effects. I didn’t see many of the h-scenes, but the ones I did see weren’t so great. For me, the point of an h-game is the hentai, but if you’re just looking for a good RPG with monster girls in it, you could do a lot worse than this one. You play an alchemist who collects ingredients and crafts stuff, including the girls themselves.

3. Dirunween ディルンウィン-現世編- 行け勇者よ! 違う、俺は魔王だ!!

More of a visual novel with fights, kind of like MGQ. It’s really easy and the gameplay is nothing special. Art is nice, but unfortunately the actual sex in the h-scenes is extremely short. If you’re just looking for some nice-looking monster girls to ogle, this one does the job.

4. Dramara Quest

This is a Dragon Quest clone with monster girls. I downloaded a complete save rather than actually playing the game so I can’t tell you if the gameplay is any good. However, the art is pretty nice as are the scenes themselves and the sounds. Maybe a little bland and not enough variety, but what’s there is hot. It’s slightly animated too, which is a plus.

5. Elements! (Power Up)

Elements came out last year, but an “expansion” of sorts just came out. You’ll need the base game and the expansion to play. It’s a sandbox game where you get 5 days to stop the island you’re on from sinking. Lots of crafting, material gathering, buying/selling, etc. It’s very much a cosplay-type of monster girl game, and I didn’t find the h-scenes all too exciting, but it’s a solid game anyway.

6. 魔に堕ちし者-Lilly-

This is a short visual novel about a futa succubus. In the prologue, she all but destroys a kingdom, killing the king and capturing the queen. The princess escapes, rebuilds the kingdom, and trains as a swordsman as Lilly the succubus sleeps. The flunkie monsters can’t finish the job so they wake Lilly up to do it. You get the choice of whether Lilly rapes a mother or her daughter, then she turns them into succubi. If you let the princess kill them, she beats Lilly and has sex with her retainer. Otherwise, she’s captured by Lilly who rapes her in different ways you get to choose. If you pick the bottom option every day, you’ll get an unbirthing scene (I called it vore, but it’s really not since the princess doesn’t die). 1-2-2 is a special ending too. That’s all there is to it, but it’s really hot (and somewhat demented too). Futa succubus, yuri, hypnosis, aphrodisiacs, anal, petrification, unbirthing, lots of oral, and more. The title is something like “One who is corrupted by a demon.”

7. Monster Girl Quest Delicious -Lunch-

The sequel to the set of scenarios I translated earlier this year. It’s not out yet, but there’s a demo out you can download from DLSite. Release date is the end of the year, conveniently right when I finish VH3. I might translate it since it’ll only take a week or two.


  1. The Noble Shade

    In addition to that, I’m being led to understand that I have to cave in to the monopoly Microsoft has on repairs.

    • The Noble Shade

      Whoops, ignore that comment. Here’s what I meant to say.

      Breakfast was really weird (in a good way), but lunch? That means dinner is guaranteed to happen eventually.

    • Moby

      Orc Kingdom. I’ve been playing that one recently. The only problem I have with it is how much of a grindfest it is (and it’s really difficult to get the monster girls you want to appear). Its contents are still getting updated with patches (same can be said for Tokyo TENMA).

      Dirunween (maybe it should be Dyrnwyn) was fun and I think it might have several sequels. (I beat it, but I didn’t understand much. The story might be interesting. H-scenes really are terribly short tho. If there’s any game I wanna see translated it would be Tokyo TENMA or Dyrnwyn. Of course, dargoth still has VH4 and the other Torotoro game on his list, and Rogue is done with translating once he releases MGQ3, so I won’t request (unless there’s any out there who would be willing)

      • I have Orc Kingdom but haven’t played beyond the intro so I left it off the list.

        Dirunween/Dyrnwyn/whatever is loaded with Japanese slapstick humor that would be a nightmare to translate. I don’t even understand most of the jokes, and since there’s no voice acting, it’s hard to tell what’s supposed to be “sarcasm” and what’s just a plain statement. Some of the scenes are pretty cute though.

    Why do japanese people have to use kanji WHY???? Damn language barrier if it wasnt for their writing system i would’ve learned it already. Soo many awasome material i probably will never be able to enjoy.
    I was wandering wouldn’t it be easy for them to translate their own game? i think it would be worth it for them

  3. Anonymous

    Thanks very much for postin! I’m interested in Tokyo Tenma for sure, I’ve been a fan of SMT so it looks interesting 😀

      • Cio

        There is already 2 monster girl in character menu, one is robo maid girl (YAY for the maid robo which losing on voting before, i think dieselmine know what the people wants actually :p), other is some worm KC ‘Sandworm’ type girl.

        And, it;s about time Succubus as the main girl! YAY

      • Alex the Lazy

        I saw the two-headed cyclops and thought it was a siamese twins monster girl for a second

        I’m glad the one I voted for made the cut! I hope WeaponSpirit and Incubator get to be in the next one,
        if that comes along and there probably will be a V seeing as the sales on the game are going well not nearly as well as MGQ but well

        all three parts of MGQ are on dlsites top twenty selling game list iirc
        I think part 3 is only game in that list from 2013 too.

  4. yuki

    I appreciate these roundups. I’ll never play most of them (too Japanese text heavy) but its good to hear about this stuff.

  5. Anonymous

    I have to agree, this game here (http://www.dlsite.com/maniax/work/=/product_id/RJ117172.html)
    definitely was good, played through it, it’s not that long either.
    However, I couldn’t understand anything, but it was fun to play though.

    Also, Dirunween or MGQ Delicious -Lunch- would be great to see translated as well, but since Dirunween seems to contain a lot of humour that is hard to interpret the latter one (or the one I mentioned above) might be the better choice, especially since those don’t seem to be too long, can’t speak for -Lunch- though.
    Not making any requests here, just throwing in some suggestions.

  6. Brave

    I like these roundup posts, monster girl games often fly under the radar, can make it tough to find ones that aren’t from a few specific companies. I’ll have to look into a few of these.

  7. 2-tall

    Say Dargoth what kind of torture do you think the protagonist VH4 is going suffer in those H-scenes? I mean what could they show us that we haven’t seen?

  8. Paradox

    hey dargoth, apparently rogue is not intending to translate MGQ Paradox, so is there a chance you’ll consider translating it when it comes out?

  9. Anonymous

    I’m not sure if anyone can help but I’ve downloaded Lilly and it won’t open. I keep getting an error message pop up and I don’t know how to fix it.

  10. Anonymous

    Hey Dargoth! Same guy struggling with Lilly. I’ve got my computer on a japanese locale and it’s still not opening. I can’t decipher what the error message is saying so I was wondering if you had any clue at all as to what is going wrong.

  11. Kurei

    Thank you for your hard work with the VH games. I have thoroughly enjoyed 2 and 3. After checking the VH 4 characters I was kinda a little bit disappointed with how many girls are appealing in this game. I mean, 13 out of 15 were very sexy in VH 2 and the same for VH 3, but for VH 4 you have only like 5 out of 15. Most of them have over sized boobs and a more ”vore like” appearance and art style compared to the previous 3 games. It’s not necessarily bad, and everyone has his own tastes but oh well.

    • 2-tall

      I noticed that they didn’t put anything up in the story section when I checked it recently. That kind of gives me the impression that the story (if I didn’t misunderstand anything and VH4 is coming before this year is out) is not going to be well written. So please tell me I misunderstood something here.

    • Anonymous

      I just checked the samples and i hope i m wrong but isn’t this sphinx girl doing….pretty much the same thing that wolf girl did in VH 2 ? also from the characters look i guess this time we have desert/egypt theme

      • moonblack

        As far as I can tell from that particular sample you’re not wrong and she’s doing exactly what you think she is…

        I hope you’re right about the “desert/Egypt” theme too – it’s not something I see often in H games.

  12. Confusion

    Thanks for all your hardwork Dargoth!
    I just recently started getting into these games. My first stop was Monster Girl Quest, I really like the stories, characters and the content over all but it kind of started bugging me that Luka can be such a wuss when when it comes to every single monster “advancing” on him. I wanted him.. for once.. to be more aggressive but it never happened! Ever! I couldn’t emphasize “oh, Come ON!” more.

    The next game I decided to try was Desire Dungeon. I really liked that one because the prize for winning or losing a fight is gratifying and really fitting. If you lost, you get raped, but if you win, you take control of the heated situation. This feature overwhelms any negative aspect of this game for me. I wish it was longer though!

    Now I’m here browsing this magnetizing wordpress. I like how in Desire Dungeon you have the option to be raped or overpower at your choosing. My question is, is there any other games that’s similar to this? I was going to try out Violated Hero, but I saw some where that it’s sadomasochism heavy. Is this true? I’d love someone to tell me or suggest any other monster girl games!

    • Violated Hero is very masochistic. The heroes typically behave just like Luka, although they’re more likely to let themselves enjoy it eventually, unlike Luka.

      Vanadis has produced a bunch of monster girl visual novels where the sex is in a more give-and-take relationship, which sounds like what you’re looking for. Here’s a list of their VNs: http://vndb.org/p813 Unfortunately no one has ever finished a translation of any of them.

      Mangagamer released a localized version of Bukakke Ranch that might be up your alley too.

      • Anonymous

        The first one (Lamia no baai) is translated into russian. And it is one of the most generic stories I have ever heard. Though art is good and it’s fully voiced. If you play it with translation program (I think it was AGP or something) you won’t lose much. It’s not like it has some interesting dialogues or story

    • Anonymous

      There is also Demon Master Chris with you playing as female protagonist, you can capture monsters and add them to your team

  13. Kurei

    Wow, thanks for sharing these common theme titles. I was wondering, what I would have to do if I run out of MGQ and Violated Hero material. The art design on these Vanadis titles are excellent. Dirunween and Tokyo TEMNA are also a fine addition, since I enjoy RPG elements in general. Bukakke Ranch is also interesting and quite hilarious with all these ”sexual labels” and grinding processes. A shame that there haven’t been any projects for the others to translate them.

  14. Kurei

    As mentioned above Demon Master Chris is another title I forgot to mention. It is a mixture of Lightning Warrior Raidy and Pokemon-Rpg elements. It should also be noted that, its Yuri based, meaning that the H scenes are between girls/women. It’s pretty fun if you are into the theme, or if you are looking for another Monster Girl related H game with good art design and funny dialogues 🙂

    • Alexthelazy

      Nyaatrap also made what I am told is a free, shorter, loli version of Demon Master Chris called “Starmaiden Astraea Rio” if your into that kind of thing.

  15. Kurei

    Indeed XD. MGQ has really some unparalleled monstrosities going on. Man, I remember the first time I encountered that ”parasite girl” and then the ”chimeras”. In both occasions I said to myself: ^^Dude, just win I don’t care how, even use cheat programs if you have to ^^. But those moments make these games fun also. Regarding VH4, both succubi are super hot though. A must own game as well in my books. Thank goodness people like Dargoth make these games a lot more accessible and enjoyable.

  16. Michiru

    Sorry I’m posting on an old post just wondering if you knew anyone or if you are translating Lilly. I really want to play the game, but I can’t read japanese for the life of me. I’m so glad you are translating the next MGQ though. *huggles*

    • No one’s ever going to translate Lilly. There’s no story at all to it, it’s just pure porn. It’s also just a VN so there’s no stopping you from playing the whole thing in Japanese, even if you can’t understand it.

      • Michiru

        Ah okay I understand. I downloaded anyway and can’t get it to work even with the patch so looks like I can’t play it. I use applocale since I can’t mess with the locale settings on this pc. So now to hope someone at least makes a patch for it to work that way, but with what you said I doubt it.

    • Michiru

      I think I figured it out. Some weird thing in my system changed the folder name so it couldn’t find it. Hopefully it works now, but it seems some of the other file names where changed to random characters.
