Plot Summary:

Everything begins with you sat at a table, adjusting your clothes and blowing a kiss to the cute little Fairy you’d spent the afternoon with. The ‘Captain’ comes in; a haggard and tired figure. Still, they might make for some interesting company, seeing as how captains have ships, money, and go on exciting adventures.

It becomes readily apparent that she’s on her last legs, announcing that the Pirate life is hard, and her luck is drained to the final dregs. The Navy is on her tail, and her ship is being scuttled with debt. Of course, you’re happy to offer a little ‘Stress Relief’, but she confesses she hasn’t a penny to her name. Hell— she probably couldn’t find gold in a chest.

You sigh and shrug; you’ve always been particularly lucky. The Captain seems awfully enticed at the whole prospect of some life-changing luck.

The little conversation is brought to a screeching halt by the sound of Navy boots stomping their way through the building next door. Not an issue to you of course, but the ‘Captain’ seems to be missing some facial coloration all of a sudden. Then with a snap of her fingers, she’s up and out of her seat with a brand new purpose, tossing her hat onto your head.

“Must be fate!” she announces pleasantly, and while you’re still trying to figure out what’s going on, her jacket is thrown over your shoulders. There’s a scampering, a yelping of alarm from one of the patrons, and then silence.

Once you’ve got the hat off from over your eyes, the ‘Captain’ is nowhere to be seen.

Skipping past the Navy isn’t an issue for you, and the real culprit is long gone. Nothing for it but to find this woman’s ship and get things sorted out.

… Or at least give back the hat and jacket… despite how totally cool they are.

Once you get there, you find a mismatched crew of helplessly inept girls who weren’t even a hundred percent sure they were pirates the whole time.

The crew announce that it’s unlikely the ‘ex-captain’ is coming back. She gave over the hat and jacket after all! That’s all it takes; its proof!

You scoff at the ridiculousness of it all, intending to drop the hat onto one of the girl’s heads. She gasps and scrambles away, begging you not to put that evil on her.

It takes you a while to come to terms with it all, but it seems you’re in charge now! First step, re-name the ship. Second step? Find a way out of debt. Third step? … We’ll figure it out somehow.

Mutiny!! is a galactic space pirate themed where the it is expected that the character interactions and development are the main course but the journey is equally as alluring as the naughtiness. Clearly a lot of work went into this game. It is as if Lupiesoft took everything they learned from past entries such as The Reject Demon Toko Chapter 0 and The Menagerie, took notes on what worked and what needed improving for the next title, mixed it all together and churned out this delightfully steamy gem of sexy monster girl space pirate goodness.

Mutiny!! Map

The map.

What makes this title different from other entries in Lupiesoft’s library is that besides the gameplay being the standard multiple choice visual novel fare it is also a puzzle game. See, there are three kinds of puzzles.

  1. The basic multiple choice with a right and wrong answer.
  2. Timed puzzles where it must be solved before time runs out.
  3. Ship battles, where goal is to survive long enough and avoid getting the ship’s damage to critical red.

Failing the puzzles or making wrong decisions will result in the “mutiny meter” going up and the crew’s morale worsening. A full meter is an automatic Game Over/Bad End.

The backgrounds and locales look stunning.

This is easily Lupiesoft’s prettiest looking game by far. The above picture is one “plreaders” will become familiar with: The Mutiny!! sailing. What makes this recurring image special are the locales the ship sails/flies through. Every single one is visually stunning, including the small glimpses of the ruins and secluded destinations we get. Despite it being only one background per destination every single one has so much detail. It is a treat for the eyes. The soundtrack is also neat, fitting the adventurous and perilous lifestyle of a space pirate.

Now the space pirating is a very nice touch but what drew me in are the wonderful monster girl designs. I daresay these are not only the best monster designs but best character designs Lupiesoft have cooked up since Asumamiya from The Menagerie. Sticking to company tradition the characters come in all shapes and sizes so there is something for everyone. Besides their designs the ladies are also delightfully charming, such as the genki dog Foo, the kind, sassy and sometimes creepy moth maid Elizabeth Margaret, the “not-so classic” tsundere sphinx Grozdana and my personal favorite the elegant yet somewhat timid “drider” Lirdynrae (Alcina the bear is my #2). Each girl has their pros and cons and Captain Grace must learn to cope with each one while flirting with them every chance she gets. Speaking of Captain Grace, she is a very kind, intelligent, sassy (different from Elizabeth’s sass), competent and capable human woman who just so happens to enjoy having sex and is not ashamed of it whatsoever. She also does not discriminate against anyone. She treats everyone with respect so long as they respect her back and is not picky when it comes to…”eating”.

Update: Got called out on this so I will mention that of all the ladies, Nemui the Chameleon has the most…unique personality shall we say.

Mutiny sex scene 1

Grace and Nemui the chameleon.

In the base game three of the crew members can be romanced, or promoted to first mate. Romancing a first mate requires making commendable choices and performing well during puzzles. While Grace does engage in some “fun time” with a couple of the crew members only one of them is chosen as her #1…in the base game. As mentioned in the length section there are planned DLC characters and stories. Also as mentioned in the warning section some of the ladies are futanari. Keep in mind however that the patch is not for the faint of heart as it alters the sex scenes in a way that not everyone will be comfortable with. These are monster girls and the artists did not hold back with the steamy goodness.

Overall Mutiny!! is Lupiesoft’s most ambitious, visually appealing and expansive game to date. The backgrounds all look great, the monster girl designs are the best the company has created, the characters are all charming and fun to learn more about, the puzzles are amusing the first time around and the naughty scenes deliver. As long as “plreaders” are a-okay with some of the girls being futanari then I highly recommend giving this game a go, especially Lupiesoft fans.

Buy the game on Nutaku (NSFW), Steam (Adult Patch HERE) or Mangagamer.

The DLC will come out periodically.

    I must insist that “futanari yuri” is an oxymoron. It’s either one or the other. C’mon dude.

    As for the game, the fact that the futa is literally unavoidable makes it a complete deal breaker for me. I despise futa, but if I could choose whether or not I see it, I could forgive it. And there is…very little actual yuri content. Shame, that. The artstyle is good, the general designs of the characters are cool and the dialogue’s okay.

      I don’t mean to argue on OG’s behalf, but genitals don’t define gender; women can have penises, and therefore can be included amongst yuri. That said, I’m glad that he put the warning out though so that people that aren’t fond of penises don’t go into this game and get an unhappy surprise though.

        Speaking in terms of definitions, no, if it’s futa it’s not yuri, it’s something else, if it’s yuri it’s not futa. This distinction is recognized(via tags for example) on every booru-style site and many others. This game has both. You can like futa all you want but don’t mislabel it as something it’s not. I’m not sure real-life gender definitions really apply here since futanari are basically almost never trans-women, they just inexplicably have penises, and are almost always highly fetishized.

        Using this logic, can we say that works where there are men who define themselves as women and prefer women, belongs to the yuri genre? Because genitalias don’t define gender, right? So, what a diffirences between man with penis and woman with penis, if them both identify themselves as women? What i want to say, that we absolutely must not cross the line between gender self identification and genres as yuri/yaoi/het etc. If you have male body, but identify yourself as woman, it’s not like you be a homosexual from biological terms if you have sex with another women or love them. Yuri not equally futa. Like qorl said, its an oxymoron like a “living dead”.

        P.S. I’m not trying to insult you. Just a simple question, because i really tired of this false type of tolerance.

        tfw I have to respond to my own comment because I can’t respond to you guys

        To qorl, I don’t know about most sites since I seldom browse non-fanfiction/doujins, but I have seen f/f g!p, yuri + futa tags etc. And since “futa”s are typically female with penises, well, it’s still female/female… and that’s all you need to be yuri. Most yuri isn’t even sexual, so it’s often a non-conversation.

        To yukkaonna, I highly suggest you look more into biology. The biological differences between men and women are almost non-existant on a non-manipulatable angle, especially if medically managed pre-puberty or even if you consider ranges of phenotypic secondary sex characteristics. Chromosomes don’t equate gender – there are far too many karyotypes giving intersex conditions (7-8 off the top of my head, on top of other conditions such as testosterone-intolerance etc) – and transpeople exist regardless of chromosomal typing, and are valid in their identified gender, regardless of what medical steps they take to transition if they even choose to. And if all you are considering gender is genitalia then I find your ideas of relationships shallow; demeaning any non-sexual relations at the base level, and further, requiring sexual relations to validate sexuality sounds an awful lot like bi and ace-erasure to me. I don’t mean to insult you, but you speak about tolerance ironically and illogically.

        Sorry for the rant, OG.

        I already talked about the subject of futanari in a Yuri Talk post so I don’t feel like repeating myself. My argument is still “Yes, it counts as a form of yuri because women born with both genitals do exist”. That’s good enough for me. Now do I want futanari in every single title? No. However, if there’s a game featuring characters who were born with both genitals I’m not gonna call it a disgrace or spit in its face because of personal bias.

        People are either cool with it, or not. Simple as that. No need to go into a hate filled rant about how it shouldn’t exist.

        I answered your question by rendering your wording moot.

        transpeople exist regardless of chromosomal typing, and are valid in their identified gender, regardless of what medical steps they take to transition if they even choose to.

        There are either men that identify as men or women that identify as women or nonbinary people that identify as nonbinary people (in various ways).

        Therefore, it is yuri if a woman that identifies as a woman is into a woman that identifies as a woman.

        I would be totally up for reading/watching something that goes into sexuality and gender deeply. Simoun is the only thing off the top of my head that does this, and IMO is a masterpiece.

        No, you don’t? Because my question was “can we say that works where there are men who define themselves as women and prefer women, belongs to the yuri genre?”. But it’s okay, you don’t need to answer. I heard you point.

        “can we say that works where there are men who define themselves as women and prefer women, belongs to the yuri genre?

        I’ll make it really simple since I fear you have some kind of mental blockage – some deeply rooted misunderstanding of the world or transmisogyny – that’s preventing you from getting the point.

        What is a man that identifies as a woman?

        You seem to think that there is some “biological” reason that there is such as a thing as a man that identifies as a woman – but you called this biological? It’s not chromosomal. It’s not phenotypic or rooted within “secondary sex characteristics” since they only differ at puberty and mostly reversible with hormone changes or in some cases surgery – and even if not do not render a trans people invalid, and to get the topic off of transpeople, that would be rendering all the big shouldered, tall women with fat in the wrong places as “men” in your strange system.

        tl;dr there aren’t “men that identify as woman”; gender is purely psychological and thus they are “women that identify as women.” As transgender women are women, if they also identify as lesbian or bisexual, then they belong in the yuri genre for as long as their romance with another woman is valid.

        Likewise, transgender men do not belong in the yuri genre, under any sexuality.

        It would be interesting to see more things like Hourou Musuko’s Saorin – a heterosexual girl that has a crush on a transgender woman – or perhaps it could be less-drama and more fluff if it were in reverse, as these make for very interesting and original character developments (especially when written well, such as in the case of Hourou Musuko).

    Is there any content that specifically requires a functioning penis for the plot to work, and not a “really cool strap-on”? If we start getting into pregnancy territory, I’m out.

    I can handle futa to a certain degree as long as I can romance someone who’s not futa. Game seems fun though, I like that there are a lot more gaming mechanic than a usual VN.

    There are some arguments on whether or not futa is yuri. I think futa and yuri tags are appropriate only if we can romance either a futa or yuri girl. If it’s purely futa, I don’t think it would make sense, but this is a blog site and how the web master determine the definition is based on their belief. I appreciate the futa warning though.
