Morningdew Farms: A Gay Farming Game
Sweet Southerner Cody finally realizes his dream of starting a farm in the Gayborhood of Morningdew! Fun farming and hot loving-Yeehaw!
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, June 29 2019 3:59 AM UTC +00:00.
Steve meant to say for people to back the $25 tier or higher in our video! :p We need all the support we can get!
Sweet southern boy Cody always dreamed of living off the land. Now he's inherited his granddaddy's old farm and can begin a wonderful new life in the village of Morningdew--a notorious Gayborhood!
Cody will need to work hard to earn money. Once he has enough cash he can upgrade his house and marry one of Morningdew's hot bachelors. In the meantime he'll be getting to know his neighbors, REALLY WELL, and will find the man he wants to spend the rest of his life with.
Part farming game, part gay 'adults-only' visual novel, Morningdew Farms has everything for gay romance lovers and farm game enthusiasts!
You'll plant, harvest, raise livestock, sell goods, and earn money so you can advance through the romantic goals of the game.
Let's face it, your run-down shack isn't a proper home to start a marriage in. Furnish the place and renovate, then you'll be in the perfect position to land a husband.
With seven bachelors, including a possible threesome marriage option, you'll have dozens of scenes with potential husbands. Eventually you'll pick the man you want to go exclusive with. See if you can charm him so he wants to stay with you forever!
This hardcore adult game comes from the makers of To Trust an Incubus, so you know it will deliver the goods!
Speaking of Delivering the Goods:
Y Press Games always ships crowdfunding rewards in full and ON TIME!
Our great reputation means you can trust us to always keep our promises. (See more about that in the Risks and Challenges section way down below.)
Cody is super excited to finally start farming. The lustful gay hunk picked the perfect village to start his new life. Morningdew is a total Gayborhood!
Cody is lucky to have his big sister living right next door to his farm. She'll give him tips and spot him some money for his first week. Sis is steering Cody toward some of the local hunks so he can settle down and find a husband.
Cody will need to buy supplies at the Country Store, owned and operated by Butch! This hardcore prepper and male dom takes an immediate interest in Morningdew's spunky new farmer!
When Cody is ready to add some animals to his farm, he can get them from his adorable neighbor Jace. Sweetheart Jace loves animals and is a member of a cult! Wait...what?
If Cody wants to land himself a husband he'll need to renovate his beat-up shack. Luckily, the badass builder Rusty can do the work for him. Rusty hides a secret behind his manly exterior! Maybe Cody will find out what it is?
Sanjay wants to grow grapes to start his own wine label, and Cody's farm has the perfect conditions! Can this upscale man work with a down-to-earth country boy? And will sexiness ensue if he does?
Cody was warned to stay out of the woods, but can he resist the sultry call of the hillbilly? What will happen if he dares to trespass? Did I just hear a banjo?
As Morningdew Village's only cryptid (cryptids are things like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster) Nuzzler must be careful about who he trusts. He lives in isolation with only his love of cooking to pass the time. Will he reveal himself to Cody?
We desperately need this Kickstarter to be a success or we can't make this awesome game! Do you think you can help spread the word? If not on your own social media then perhaps on forums, blogs, or other pages you visit? Link to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ypressgames/mdf
Here's our Press Kit!
Las Cruces, NM - Y Press Games, the developers of gay sci-fi sex romp known as To Trust an Incubus, has launched a Kickstarter featuring a more down-to-earth offering.
Morningdew Farms is a gay farming visual novel. The developers boast the adult-only offering as the first fully functional visual novel farming game.
Intricate farming and monetary mechanics will rival mainstream farming games produced using more robust game engines. Y Press Games is stretching the capabilities of the Ren'Py engine for something more immersive than what's normally seen in an adult game or a visual novel.
In Morningdew Farms you'll plant, grow, harvest, and sell your crops in order to raise money to renovate your home. Once you've got the proper digs you become eligible to marry one (or possibly two depending on campaign stretch goals) of Morningdew's hot bachelors--but only if you've charmed them sufficiently.
The gameplay is split between working your land to earn money, and making all the right choices with the man your heart desires. Each of the seven bachelors is capable of delivering 25 unique scenes to the player.
With double the bachelors, content, and length of To Trust an Incubus, and an open world, Y Press Games is hoping Morningdew Farms will be its largest success to date.
But...they need the support of fans to make the game a reality. Their Kickstarter will run from May 15th to June 29th, 2019. Go here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ypressgames/mdf and make a pledge to ensure the game will be made.

Pledge $500 or more
The Whole Shindig!
The Whole Shindig gives you all the physical rewards and all the unlimited digital rewards! You'll get EIGHT custom key chains! These are adorable full-color die-cut 1.75" PCV key chains of Cody, Rusty, Butch, Jace, Jeb, Obie, Sanjay, and Nuzzler!
This is a photo of the final key chains from our last Kickstarter--which are IMPOSSIBLE to get now! We'll be using the same company and process to make the Morningdew Farms key chains!
You'll also get a physical copy of the full-color adults-only art book! If you've backed Y Press Games projects in the past, you know our art books are AMAZING! It's not just tons of gorgeous art, but Steve will describe the journey we took to make this game.
Of course we couldn't have a Kickstarter without offering one of our squishy mouse pads! Will Cody have a squishy butt, man-tiddies, or crotch mouse pad? Backers will vote! This is the mouse pad from our last game for an idea. It's sexy AND practical!
You can add ten sweet 1.5" buttons to your button collection too! (Designs not final--there won't be any duplicates.)
Don't forget the super-squishy 'Country Boys Make Do' corn stress reliever and the 'Suggestive Eggplant' eggplant stress reliever! Fun to fling at people!
And, finally, you'll get a LUSCIOUS 6"x9" glossy, full-color scratch-off card with your Steam Code! We haven't designed it yet, but it will be sextacular yet tasteful!
All Shindig backers will also get Beta Access to the game! That means you get a beta key on Steam that allows you to access to the game as it develops. We want your feedback! Help us to make this game as awesome as it can possibly be!
You'll sponsor a physical item on the map. It could be a rock, tree, clump of grass, mountain top, or, if you're the first backer, the bridge! When people click your physical item they'll see: (Item) Sponsored by (Your Name). It's possible you'll be on a second map screen player's can click an arrow to get to if we can't fit everyone on the first map screen.
Of course, you'll also get your name in the credits, the Steam Key for the final digital game, the exclusive to Kickstarter Bluegrass soundtrack, and the digital art book!
Most important, you get our extreme gratitude. This perk isn't cheap, and really helps us! Thank you!!!
Pledge $1,000 or more (Extremely Limited!)
You know how sometimes Kickstarters will give backers the chance to be in the game and it turns out super awkward and annoying for the players?
Not this time! You're literally giving the player an awesome thing that they wouldn't otherwise get if it hadn't been backed by you! Everyone will love you for this!
There are several EXTREMELY LIMITED $1,000 pledge opportunities that make you a character in the game who helps the player. These pledges come with everything described above in the 'Whole Shindig' reward, plus you can buy the chance to...
Give Cody A Fishing Pole!
You'll be giving players the ability to catch fish they can sell in the game! If we don't sell this perk, then fishing will very likely NOT be in the game at all!
If we get a backer for this perk, then fishing may occur through an awesome Fishing Hole Minigame (if we meet that stretch goal) or through a typical visual novel event. Take part in this HUGE game milestone by being that awesome backer who gives the player their fishing pole!
If no one gets this perk, AND if we don't hit the Fishing Hole Minigame Stretch Goal, then there will not be a fishing element in the game.
If someone gets this perk, then fishing will be in the game, even if we don't hit the Fishing Hole Stretch Goal! (It just won't be a minigame.) Be a hero! Provide a fishing element in the game for everyone!
Give Cody a Berry Basket!
This doubles the amount of berries players can pick every time they go to the berry field!
It's an important milestone, because as the game progresses players need to make money faster. You'll be giving them a HUGE helping hand!
If no one gets this perk, this will not be incorporated as a feature in the game. We only came up with this feature to offer an awesome perk to one special backer.
Give Cody a Skillet!
The skillet is attached to a particular bachelor's route. Cody will give this bachelor this huge gift and open a new possibility for them! We don't want to give too much away, but suffice to say we made this a very critical event in one of the potential routes!
When the player gets the skillet it will be a 'holy shit' moment for them! You'll be taking part in a key twist in the game! How awesome is that?
If no one backs this perk there is still a skillet event with the bachelor, but the impact will be lost somewhat. Your backing this perk makes the skillet a pivotal plot point!
Give Cody A Treat!
Players are limited to completing two major tasks per day. As they gain in experience it's important to give them a way to get more work done. A treat is INCREDIBLY HELPFUL because it allows the player to complete one extra task in a day!
How many treats will the player get? If backers don't get this perk then this will not be a feature in the game. If backers do purchase this perk, then the treats will be exactly what's backed. If only one treat is backed then there will only be one treat given to the player in the game. That's because we only came up with this feature to offer a few extra-special backers something amazing! Pick from these treats below. First pledge gets first pick!
- Hillbilly Pie (A Faux Pecan Pie Without Pecans)
- Possum Stew (Stew with Opossum Meat)
- Fart Beans and Weasel (Crock Pot Beans With Weasel Meat)
- Dump Cake (Canned Fruit Dumped into Cake Mix and Baked)
- Rocky Mountain Oysters (Breaded and Fried Bull Testicles)
- Porcupine Goulash (Elbow Pasta in Sauce With Porcupine Meat)
- Squirrel BBQ (Gutted and Skinned Squirrel Roasted on a Spit and Covered with BBQ Sauce)
- Elvis Fried PB & Banana Sandwich (A Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich, Pan Fried in a Whole Stick of Butter, an Favorite Meal of Elvis Presley)
All of these events are crucial to the story, and you get to be a part of it!
You'll get a customized sprite drawn just how you want it and a scene with Cody to give him your gift. You can make three edits to your sprite to make sure it's perfect! (Or more if needed, as long as you're being reasonable--we want you to be happy with your sprite.) If you have adequate recording equipment you can even do the voice of your character in the game!
In most cases we will not have these awesome game elements added unless some awesome people step up to help make the game amazing for everyone!
We know these are expensive perks, that's why we went above and beyond to make them extremely special!
And of course you'll get all the other physical and digital rewards!
Pledge $250 or more
It's a Hootenanny!
This EXTREMELY LIMITED perk is a great way to make a major pledge and get your name in our game for everyone to see! You'll own a physical item on the Morningdew Farms map. It could be a tree, mountain peak, bush, patch of grass, or, if you're the very first backer to get a $250 or greater perk, you can claim the bridge!
When someone clicks on your piece of the map they'll see (Item) Sponsored by (Your Name). How cool is that!?
In addition to leaving this permanent and personalized mark on the game for all time, you'll get all the unlimited digital perks, too! That means you'll get a Beta Key to follow the game's development, Your Name in the Credits, the Digital Game, the Digital Art Book, and the Kickstarter Exclusive Digital Bluegrass Soundtrack!
Pledges Under $250
- You can get Your Name in the Credits, the Digital Game, Digital Art Book, the Kickstarter Exclusive Digital Bluegrass Soundtrack, and a Beta Key on Steam to be a Part of the Game as it Develops for $100 (Hoe-Down Perk)

Do we seem desperate? Because we are! It's SOOOOO hard to get a Kickstarter funded! Our last Kickstarter was an UTTER FAILURE! If there's anything you can do to help spread the word, we'd be so grateful!
And I know, all the Kickstarters tell people to spread the word. You're not part of the project, so it's really not your obligation.
Here's where our request for you to spread the word is different: we're pathetic about it!!! So you could totally post something like this:
'I normally don't promote people's Kickstarters, but this one pathetically groveled for my help. So, meh, check it out if you want. It's a gay farming game. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ypressgames/mdf .'
No, seriously...if you do that we'd be SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL!
Tweet it, post it on Facebook, post on Instagram, make a post in a friendly forum or on Reddit...anything! It seriously helps us so much. ;_;
Risks and challenges
The reason you should trust us to deliver this game on time is our track record:
My Magical Demon Lover - Promised May 2018 - Delivered May 2018
To Trust an Incubus - Promised November 2018 - Delivered November 2018
(Full Disclosure: The game was delivered on time, but physical rewards were shipped eight days late. We tried our hardest to avoid this, but made sure backers understood why there was a delay and how the problem was being solved every step of the way.)
We know you've probably backed a lot of projects that end up being a year or more late or are never delivered at all. That's not how Y Press Games operates.
It would take the death of the project lead or some other catastrophe to cause us to fail in our delivery. We put a phenomenal effort in getting to rewards to backers on time, and we don't skimp on quality to meet those deadlines. Our deadline includes time to meet all Stretch Goals, except where specified. Seriously though, there's like NO WAY we'd hit those last three stretch goals. Right? ... right?
We're also going to send digital rewards through Kickstarter messages. You see, when we email rewards dozens of people never seem to get it. Eventually they come to the Kickstarter and message us for their reward email.
This time when you come to message us you'll see the message we sent you with your reward! Plus, Kickstarter will email you to let you know we messaged you. So you'll get an email AND a message. This will make sure you don't miss your awesome digital rewards! (Even if it takes us a month to message everyone individually! Sobs!)
You will get Morningdew Farms on or before December 2019 unless we hit one of the two stretch goals which specify later dates. If there is an unavoidable delay it will be short. If there is a long delay someone has died, is dying, or there is a natural or unnatural disaster of a biblical scale. We take our delivery dates very VERY seriously.
In a world of Visual Novel Kickstarters that never freaking deliver, Y Press Games differentiates itself as the one company you can always trust.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
