Is Lupin Still Flirting?
Master Thief Lupin the Third is always two steps ahead of his eternal nemesis, the ICPO's Inspector Zenigata. But occasionally, Zenigata is lucky enough to slap a pair of cuffs onto Lupin, and today is one of those days. On the train ride over to the hoosegow, Lupin's time is dwindling, and it's time to cash in on Zenigata's biggest weakness: his longstanding crush on his eternal rival. This short visual novel has four endings, and all the visuals are traditionally crafted with watercolor and fountain pen! Please enjoy and flirt your way to freedom!

This was so cute ahahha I loved all of the dialogue and the humour was just spot on. Absolute gem of a game.
i love this watercolor type artstyle, very nice to look at
ahh, i just finished playing the game, absolutely loved every second of it! the characters were written very accurately, the watercolor art was STUNNING and every single ending was super fun. all of the routes made me smile constantly, thank you so much for making this game!
Love the art style - it would be fun to see a Lupin/Fujiko game in this style.
I'm such a big Lupin III fan and this amazing game did not disappoint at all. The art was just great to look at and the dialogue had me smiling but also had me laughing my ass off (also love how many references there was from the series). Thanks for making my past 2 hours playing this game so fun, will definitely come back to it :]
Me who can't play the game because I only have a chromebook
Made a complete video
Just love the artwork and the fun gameplay!!!
gosh, is this hand-painted????
Everything I make is hand-painted, I sure don’t use my feet! XD
But these were all traditionally painted with watercolors, and then scanned into the computer. I tried to make sure that as much of the game as I could was watercolor, even the menus!
Thought the characters were OCs until I discovered the anime, this definitely pulled me into a whole new fandom. I simp for Zenigata.
Welcome to the Lupin fandom, my friend lol
Thank you, happy to be here! Forgot to mention I absolutely love the artstyle. It’s so charming! And it looks exactly like watercolor paintings. Are those digital brushes or actual traditional art? :o
All of the assets were watercolor paintings so they were physical pieces that Royce painted and scanned. We sold almost all of the assets actually, but we have some left on etsy at last check so you can see what some of the paintings look like when not in the game if you'd like :) https://www.etsy.com/listing/1023307256/lupin-still-flirting-art-assets-cut-in?g...
wow this is amazing! did you draw the visuals too? because they look beautiful :)
I'm a huge fan of Lupin the Third so finding this little gem to play was a real treat.
Love how you've captured the characters they feel like they've been taken from the show, and the art direction was stunning. Fab work devs <3
Thank you very much! We wanted everyone to feel like they came right out of the Part 2 dub!
This looks great. Any chance for a steam release?
Ok so I downloaded this for shits and giggles, knowing almost nothing about Lupin, and lemmie tell you this is some good fucking shit. The visuals are great and charming, the writing is witty and cute, and the game itself has every quality of life feature ever to exist and its fucking great. Now I'm in the situation where I'm gonna actually watch Lupin the III without knowing what their voices remotely sound like and having an extremely skewed version of the plot, its gonna be great. Thanks for making this and obviously putting so much time and effort into it, you may have just indoctrinated me into a new fandom
Oh hell yes, this comment was so nice of you to leave, and it is very satisfying knowing we may have convinced one more person to join up and watch Lupin.
There’s a lot of Lupin out there, so we recommend starting with the Dub of Part 2. It’ll pretend that there’s continuity, but there isn’t, really. The dub is super silly and fun and those were the voices we were writing for, so hopefully it’ll give you what you crave right off the bat.
I mean Lupin gives Zenigata a big ol smooch on the cheek right in episode one; they act like he’s joking but we know what’s up.
This was extremely cute. I really only know Lupin through cultural osmosis, but that didn't hamper my enjoyment of it at all. Super endearingly-written, brightened up my afternoon.
Thank you! I wanted to make sure that people who weren't Lupin fans could still enjoy it, so I made sure to include the dance-card segment at the beginning.
I have finally downloaded it and I love it, I am in love with this game. I wish I had a Spanish translation, but it's still very enjoyable
Gracias! Sadly, nobody on our team knows Spanish well enough to translate. But I don't mind at all if anyone else out there wants to translate it to another language! So in case anyone else reads this comment and was thinking about it, please feel free to go for it!
Some computers aren't too fond of programs that weren't submitted to Apple themselves for verification. Here's a fix from the Mac User guide: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/open-a-mac-app-from-an-unidentified-dev...
Hello, I have a mac as well and what I do is I click it with two fingers instead of double-clicking it. When you do that, a few options will open up. You want to click "Open."
After that, this will pop up. Click "Open" again.
That should open the application up afterwards. I hope this helped. :)
Made a video that has some ramen
absolutely hysterical. loved the ace attorney crossover.
I have never watched Lupin the Third, but I really enjoyed it all the same! I laughed out loud several times, and the kinky jokes were delightful! Definitely a fun little game.
Waaa! The game is very beautiful, the art is beautiful and the watercolor style finish I love. Simply wonderful and entertaining! Enjoyed by lupine fans.
I don't really speak English so I couldn't understand as much as I would like, but I was able to properly enjoy the experience.
The art is beautiful!! I've only watched bits and pieces of Lupin, enough to know the characters, and I feel like you captured them super well!
Thank you! Each member of the Lupgang has such a distinct voice, it helps a lot in making them all easier to write!
Made another video
I just played this to one of the endings, and its' so fun and charming! A Lupin fan after my own heart. And the artwork is gorgeous!
Thank you! Though I wanted to make sure the game was accessible to people who'd never watched any Lupin at all, my main audience was definitely other Lupin fans. My wife/co-writer/getaway driver and I are big fans, and making this was a great time for both of us! There might be more Lupin games in the future. Can't promise anything yet, but maaaaaaaybe.
Absolutely adorable. I could feel this game was made with a lot of love. I like that all the endings are canon -- Lupin's got a big heart, and the people who are important to him are REALLY important to him! It's beautifully made, too. Thank you so much for making this. It put a smile on my face the whole time I was playing it. <3
Thank you for playing! The whole Lupin III franchise is marvelous about letting people pick and choose their own canon; even Monkey Punch did whatever he wanted while writing the manga. I like that a game with multiple endings gives Lupin even more freedom and experiences (and hearts!).
Really big question but once you download the game on windows (i'm using a samsung laptop) how do you actually open/play it?? I've been really confused about it
Thank you for giving the game a try! When you download it, you should unzip the file, open it, and then click on the Application named "LupinFlirting.exe".
AAA I played this over a week ago for the first time and I can't stop coming back! It's so interesting and I love the art and everything! Keep up the good work!
I played through the full game and I really enjoyed it, massive props to you and dev team!
Thank you very much for playing! I'll pass the compliments on to the rest of the team!
oh i absolutely LOVE this! it's gorgeous & the characters are so fun the way you write them. (the bonus scene is sweet too.)
this is so fun and the art style is BEAUTIFUL!
Thank you very much! It was a great learning experience and excuse to draw Lupin and Pops a bunch! ^u^
THIS IS THE GAME I"VE ALWAYS NEEDED!!!
Hehehehe, I hope you enjoy! Let me know which ending you like best!
have u ever been to london
I loved the game. The art is wonderful (love the colors), the game is a perfect mix of funny and wholesome, and the endings are surprisingly varied! I haven't watched the show, but after playing this game I definitely have to :)
Side note: watercolor Fujiko is so pretty
Thank you! It can be an intimidating series to get into, with so much to watch! So to make things easier, if you want to start with the most popular (and my favorite) series, you can check out the first episode of Part 2 on youtube here. TMS uploaded it, so it should stay up for a while:(Also thank you for saying that Fujiko turned out well; she's supposed to be very, very pretty. <3 )
adorbs, you really nailed the characterization for both of them uwu
Thank you! Before we started writing, we agreed to go for roughly 80% dub energy, and like, 20% original Japanese. So it's mostly silly jokes, but Lupin has the Yasuo laugh, things like that!
Made a video
Thank you so much for playing! I loved your visual gags especially, the little Zenigata in the side sprite box and Pops wistfully imagining Goemon got a big laugh. XD
The water colours are *chefs kiss* (especially the food cgs WOW).
I got into Lupin from Cagliostro and the new 3D movie (so idk too much) but the portrayal of all the characters are brilliant (and really accurate)!
I've gotten endings 1, 3 and 4
! spoilers !
didn't expect to see Jigen/Goemon but they were very welcomed surprises :)
Thank you! Those films are a great place to start, they're so pretty! If you're looking for another Lupin movie to watch, I'd very much recommend Fuma Conspiracy. I think the animation in it is even better than legend that is Cagliostro (hot take, I know, sorry), and you'll get to see how very squirrely the gang usually is.
If you're looking to get into the show, our game is very inspired by Part 2. TMS has the first couple episodes up on Youtube, so it's easy to find a few!
(And as far as spoilers go, I had to! Lupin/Jigen is my favorite ship. I wrote the Jigen ending, and actually had to make myself stop. I almost started writing an entirely new game about them in the car. ^u^; )
VRV has every episode of Lupin the third for free with ads. Lupin part one all subbed, lupin part two dubbed for the first 79 episodes, subbed for all of them, lupin the third part 3 subbed, Lupin part 4 and 5 subbed. So far easiest way to watch them all but if your looking for dubs (Part 4, and 5) then would have to go through another route.
VRV is basically just Crunchyroll and Hidive put together in one thing so you can also watch all the Lupin I listed through Crunchyroll too if you want too
"I can just run from it. Running from your problems is a lot more fun than people make it out to be" this is such a lupin line I love it
Also the characterization was hilarious and heartfelt. Really glad I decided to play this!
