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!
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!
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!
I got all four endings. I had a great time from the moment I started playing. As a Lupin III fan myself, I loved the way you crafted such a love story that stays true to the core traits of the characters. I could totally buy every single thought and word expressed by Lupin and Zenigata.
(SPOILERS FROM HERE cause I dunno how else to mark spoilers in an itch.io comment)
Also, I was laughing so hard at the Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney cameo in one of the endings. xD
Thank you! We wanted it to feel like Part 2, if Part 2 was as casually welcoming of gay vibes as straight vibes. Loud and funny, pretty thirsty but in a cheesy way, with a little sweetness where it matters, just like Lupin. :D
(Also the Ace Attorney sprites are PINNACLE visual novel sprite designs, I got lost rewatching old trials while working on this game. Man, I gotta replay those sometime.)
I played the demo and fell in love... despite never having watched/read any Lupin III yet (shameful, I know!). The art is SO beautiful and the demo had me cracking a smile almost immediately. I am very much looking forward to playing the full game, hopefully soon. :)
This game was actually my top feature in my NaNoRenO 2021 Spotlight, if you'd like to check it out. (Feel free to share it as well! :) )
Whoa, thank you very much! And your list sounds like a good place to start; I'm really happy that I finally get to sit back and play everyone else's NaNo games now! I learn so much every year, and there are a few moments in Flirting that were directly inspired by wanting to try out certain tricks I saw in other games.
And if you liked the game, and you want to check out Lupin, then I encourage you to start with the dub of Part 2! TMS has uploaded a few episodes onto Youtube, and there are some compilations of jokes out of context that are pretty funny and can communicate the show's vibe VERY well.
Ok dude i played the demo and i dont think i've laughed that hard at something in a LONG time!! I can't wait to play the full version--downloading as i type--but the art and story so far are hilariously fantastic!!! I can't express how excited i am for this lol!!
Thank you! We wanted to make something that was just plain fun, so hearing that it made you laugh hard means we got it right! ^U^ I hope you have a great time with the full game!
I was really hoping for an android version, but I understand if it takes longer to develop
The paintings in this game are incredible! It looks like a lot of work went into them, they're beautiful!!
Thank you! I went through a whole sketchbook in one month prepping and drawing them! XD Honestly, it was very liberating having to work fast, and not being able to be a perfectionist about them. I got a lot of good practice!
oh man, this is so good !!! made an account on itch.io just so i could post a comment tbh.
i live for how it's written (lupin and zenigata are so in-character!) and the art is wonderful. very sweet, funny, & the title is honestly so great lol
There are a lot of really marvelous games on itchio; so if you're looking to get into more independent stuff, you've come to the right place!
And also, thank you! The title was just a placeholder I gave the file when we started working, but Tsushi liked it so much, we kept it. XD We'll be releasing the full game tomorrow, and I hope that it meets expectations!
This game is so beautiful! I'm so exited for when it comes out <3
I'm so excited to play this with my friends on discord. Thank you so much for making this game and i hope you're doing great!
Oooooh, I hope you have fun! Talking with friends on twitter about Lupin has been one of the good things about the past year, for me. ^u^
im so excited to play the rest!!
Thank you! I've been working on watercolors all day, and it's really nice to hear the encouragement! ^o^
omg i love this so much, looking forward to the full release
Aw, thanks for playing! It was nice to see Lupin fans reacting.
! ! ! I'm so excited to play this ! ! !
Me too! XD One of the fun things about game jams is that it really won't be done until the day we post it, so I can't wait to see how it turns out, either. XD
wow it's gorgeous to have it hand drawn :o
Thank you! I didn't get to do as many watercolors last year as usual, so it's been really nice to get to just go wild with them this month. ^u^
love the art style as well as the writing! i'm really excited to seeing how this progresses :>
Thank you! Doing this much art in a month is a pretty wild crash course on handling watercolors. It's not my first rodeo with them, but when you're putting out a piece every day or so, there's less time to forget what you've learned.
And I can't wait to share the rest of the game! Tsushi's writing has had me laughing a lot lately.
really looking forward to this! love the art and characters :D
Upon seeing the cute art and readin' them goofy words, I started smiling and couldn't stop. Can't wait to see where it goes.
Hehehe, that's just what we were going for! I hope that the full game can give everyone something to smile about.
I absolutely love it! The music, the art, the dialogue, the overall mood... I cannot Wait to see how it progresses ))))
Thank you! I wanted to try to make a fangame that both Lupin fans and people who were new to the franchise could both enjoy! And since Tsushi and I are cowriting it, I get to enjoy reading their bits too!
Oh, so this is what you meant by a SFW Off-the-Cuffs-esque game lol. I can't say I am not surprised, but I also can't say I am not very intrigued!
Tsushi wrote a short fic about a cuffed Lupin on a train and my brain did the thing it does.
I hear that most artists work on fanart in order to get attention on their original work. But I sure hope all the Exit fans come out to meet Lupin, they'll like him a LOT.
