Essence Hunt is a BxB (meaning, romance between males) visual novel.   Also, while it's not an adult game by any means, it does contain some censored nudity.  If you watch a lot of anime, it won't be anything you haven't seen before but I figure I'd better give you the heads up.  Now, with all of that out of the way...

Synopsis:

While out hunting, Shugo ignores his village's superstitions and kills a deer on sacred ground. This angers a powerful nature spirit named Asha and she curses him, telling Shugo that he must return what he stole within three days or he'll die. That's easier said than done however since returning the deer's soul isn't exactly in the realm of human expertise. Luckily, he's not completely on his own. A fox spirit named Kei has agreed to help him out on a whim. Can the two catch the deer's spirit and return it to its body before the three days are up? And is Shugo's new travelling companion even trustworthy in the first place?

Features:

- 25,000 + words

- 6 endings (12 if you include variants)

- It's free (but if you're feeling generous I definitely won't say no to you throwing some moolah my way *wink wink*)

I just finished getting all the endings, and it's so cute!!

This was my first time playing a BxB game, so I didn't really know what to expect, but this game was honestly amazing! You've raised the bar.

On another note, Kei is so cute lol and I just love it when Shugo teases him :3c

This is amazing! I love this!

This is such a cute story! The characters are so lovable, the artwork beautiful, and the music very comforting.

I'm just a little disappointed that there aren't any endings where Shugo can be with Oubu, but other than that everything is perfect! I like that there are no bad endings no matter what you do.

I feel like the only dude reading this novel. Hah!

Anyway, I liked it a lot. A lot more than I probably should have, given how I didn’t like the writing too much, though on the whole it is a good title, and I was forced to give it three out of five stars, which is indeed a pretty good rating and one which nobody should feel ashamed to receive.

Also, GAY GAY GAY.

So  cute! What a lovely game!

Ooooh Sacred Sand!  I KNEW that this game gave off similar vibe! I stalked all the endings in SS. Aaand can't wait to play the remake!

I'm eagerly awaiting more games from you :) I'll gladly donate fo the cause after the 10th ;)
