Need some yuri video game recommendations? Despite being a relatively popular genre in the anime world, it can sometimes be extremely difficult to find games tailored for yuri fans. Typically, in the world of visual novels especially, it’s more prominent to see harem-themed games that focus around opposite sex characters. This often leaves players having to play a sex opposite to their identity in order to woo the same sex.

Well, have no fear because we understand all too well the heartache of not being able to find decent yuri games that have an anime art style to them. There are quite a few yuri video games out there that are exceptionally well done, regardless of whether or not they were made by a major developer or a small indie company. Good yuri games include A Little Lily PrincessKindred Spirits on the Roof, and many more!

    Kindred Spirits on the Roof is a classic yuri game that you should play at least once! Its popularity is not unfounded as it has a beautiful storyline that will make your heart soar. Enoki Sachi and Nagatani Megumi have been dead for a while, and 50 years apart from each other at that. Since their death, they've both taken to haunting the school roof and have even started a romantic relationship with one another. Since Yuna is the only one able to see them, they have a request; they need her to gain advice from other potential couples in the school to learn how to initiate their first time so they can move on to the afterlife. Granted, this sounds strange, but the premise is actually more based on the emotions leading into such an act versus the act itself. It's a very beautiful storyline and one worth entertaining!

  • It's no wonder why this is one of the most popular yuri series out there. The visual novel's story is mostly based on the various girls at St. Michael's Academy and the different stories surrounding them. The leading couple feels a sense of nostalgia returning to school, the place where they'd first meet and eventually fall in love. The game has grown in popularity and does have an overall series, but unfortunately, Remembering How We Met is the only one that was ever released in English. That being said, you can still look up information about the other games if you feel you've lost something in the story. On its own, it holds a lot of a very sweet love story about how the main couple, Risa and Miya, met that deserves to be recognized.

    If you don't have a lot of time for a ton of content, this visual novel is the perfect short story that you're guaranteed to love! Fusa has been sent to the apartment of a student who appears to have stopped coming to class. While she was only there to give her the handouts, she ends up falling asleep in Seri's home and being awakened by an unexpected kiss! The game follows their romantic developments and also reveals the different aspects of their lives. If you need a really quick fix, it's a perfect time filler.

  • If you're looking for a yuri game that's truly adorable, check out A Little Lily Princess! The art style for the girls is incredibly cute and the story for this visual novel is just as good. The overall storyline is actually from the classic children's tale, A Little Princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, but with a yuri twist. Sara Crewe must learn how to adjust to her new life after leaving her father's side and life of luxury in order to attend boarding school overseas. Luckily, she'll meet plenty of other girls to keep her company! This is a very light story with a lot of excellent retellings, some parts coming right from the book while others are adding on to the Victorian prose.
