A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android

Note: Temptation's Ballad is currently in hiatus while I return to working on my original visual novel, Repeat. I hope to return to working on TB within a few months. Sorry for the inconvenience! ;w;/


Temptation's Ballad is a fairly linear visual novel in a D&D style medieval fantasy setting. Three idiots from vastly different backgrounds band together in an adventuring party to unravel the magical secrets within the city of Axia. Together, they battle demons, seduce locals, and learn a little about themselves along the way. And probably cause massive property damage.

Patreon members will gain access to updates a month earlier than the general public.

This game will contain NSFW lewd scenes between male characters. These scenes pop up occasionally throughout the story as characters grow more intimate. View at your own discretion. It's very gay.

If you like my art, feel free to follow me on Twitter here! And if you'd like to support me on Patreon and gain access to monthly updates, you can do so here. Thank you!


FAQ: How do I update my game after a new build releases?

This varies depending on what platform you're on. If on Android, simply download the new build and install it. It should automatically update the version of the game you have installed. If on Windows/MAC/Linux, simply delete the old game folder and download the new build. Your saves are stored in your local files, so they should be retained after the update. 


Please note that the Android version is not stable on all Android devices. It is recommended that you play the PC, MAC, or Linux versions when possible.

Best VN I've read omg. Hope this goes off hiatus soon!

(+2)

For anyone wondering about the status of this Visual Novel, I'm here to tell you some information.

Yes, the development of this is still in hiatus. The developer is currently finishing up the last major content update for one of the character routes in their other Visual Novel, Repeat. (Although it should be noted that it will likely come out first for patrons of their Patreon, and non-subscribers will be an update behind in comparison.)

However, let it be known, that the moment the update for Repeat is completed, Shirokoi plans to resume their work on Temptations Ballad. They have many things in store for us.

Don't worry, development is NOT dead, just on hold, and it will pick up once their current project is finished. For now, if you're still antsy from waiting, try reading Repeat. It is also a great Visual Novel to enjoy.

I hope this set you at ease.

Is it still in hiatus?

yeah:/

I really enjoyed this VN! Loved the characters and story plot. Did the development go inactive, I hope the story will continue. 

Its still in development its just that shirokoi is making updates in the Repeat VN and yes he will come back here to push more chapters in

the maker is focusing on their other project. they will come back to this...at somepoint

(+3)

My question, did Cole came from magic? Like, is he made from magic? No sex or whatever

(+1)

Damn, good question

(+1)

I mean the bat lady said that one of his fathers broke in her lab that night and stole something, I don't quite remember anything but I think she said about creating life or stuff like that

(+1)

it's implied that it's a plot point that'll be expanded upon later. remember the bat lady (I forget her name)? she was studying that sort of stuff, and it's implied that Cole's conception is the result of her research 

(-9)

how do you play i

(+5)

One of the best FVNs I've played. Very good

(+4)

I agree with the comment under mine

(+6)

Just finished 2.4 Good job. Hope your other projects go well for you.

(+14)

good game

(+5)

When comes the next update

(+6)

Plot, humor, characters, animations — everything is of such high quality, it feels a bit unreal tbh. Shirokoi definitely makes some of the best content I've seen here on itch.

(+2)

RIP. Was so hoping for my dude to hook up with Sidd 馃槶

(+3)

pllllzzzz dont tell me this vn it dead or something

(+7)

Its not, the creator is working on his other vn which is Repeat, this vn is just in hiatus till the creator finishes the first vn

(+2)

and how long do you expect that to take?

(+1)

Probably a long time unless he decides to update the game

(1 edit)

I think he mentioned something about working on this game sorta soon? I'd hope that it's going to be worked on within a year but it might take a bit longer. 

(+2)

What type of hyena is Cole? To me he looks to be either a striped hyena or an aardwolf, but I'm not sure.

(+5)

Well his dad Marrow is a striped hyena. And Hamish is a spotted hyena. Take that how you will uwu

(+3)

That answers my question. No further information is necessary.

is there no patreon for Shirokoi?

https://www.patreon.com/shirokoi?utm_campaign=creatorshare_fan

(+1)

thanks found it

(+1)

dead?

(+4)

In hiatus

(+1)

For how long?

(+5)

Until the author finishes his original vn: Repeat to which it'll take a very long time

(+2)

~~that was~Amazing~

(2 edits) (+2)

Are the midi files or piano sheet music for the themes (ie: Cole theme) publicly available? Tried searching for the sheet music for which the themes were derived from online, but they were somewhat different from the game files. (I have the original files in the form of MP3s, also mp3 to midi conversion stuff doesn't work too well for slightly out of tune, very sustained music)

(+1)

here the whole playlist of all the musics if u want to try with this

Thanks, I have the audio files for the game already, I was just wondering if there was sheet music for the exact OSTs in the VN. 

(+2)

Any updates?

(+2)

Nope. There is a route in their other VN that is nearly finished. Shirokoi is focusing on that, apparently.

(+5)

Oh you mean Repeat. Man I haven't read through that VN in like a year now. Guess I have a lot to catch up on.  


Hope he starts to work on Temptations Ballad again soon. I like this VN better.

(+11)

Ilia is the most iconic mother, and can't anybody tell me different.

(+3)

omg its so true i love her

(+3)(-6)

I love this VN. Will it be finished or will it end here? I do enjoy your VNs but no updates for a long time is a bad sign.

(+4)

The artist has been posting some art that seems to be up and coming. They normally do a 6 month hiatus but completely re-did the sprites in their other game as well as new routes. They have no intention of abandoning this game as far as anyone can tell right now, you just have to be patient.

(+3)

I appreciate the heads up and yes I'm patient. I was just purely curious. Thx again.

(+7)

Went in to give it a shot and came out starting my own bar to serve it liters. The pacing is top-notch, the characters are wonderful, and the humor is actually funny. "I'm not afraid to throw hands with a child" is living rent-free in my head.

(1 edit) (+2)

This game is so beautiful that it will make your eyes tear up truly remarkable and I wish to see more馃槉鉂わ笍

(+11)

i played this game not long ago. Let me just tell you... I wasn't fond of visual novels at first, but this game is just on another level. I LOVED the comedy, I LOVED the nfsw scenes (although i felt like there should've been more but it's alright) and I LOVED the storyline. This game made me so excited and at the same times broke my heart and made me cry ffs IT MADE ME CRY. Thank you for this amazing game. I will play it again when u make chapter 4. i wanna forget it all and play it again so baaaad. Oh yeah and f*** Katrina.

(+7)

i love everything you just said

(+2)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH thanks 馃槀

Yeah, f**** katrina.... Although, we don't know the reason why she's an a**hole.... Btw this is the only VN so far that made me cry so much that i wanna confess to everyone i know, that i'm a fURRY! (except for my nephew, cause he already know and he does not care). Can't wait for the next update ( btw. I love your art (鈦燸鈦犗夆仩^).

(+5)

I was actually blown away by how good the writing is in parts of this game, I haven't had a laugh like the one the duel scene gave me in a long time. Lovely characters and storytelling with a lot of potential too, really looking forward to seeing where this goes! Also, Hamish best dad.

(1 edit) (+4)

Just finished the game today, and I can't even verbally express how much I love it! 10/10! looking forward for the next chapter, please we need an update~ QwQ 

(+1)

when will this VN updated?

(+6)

I knew I recognised Artemi's phrasing when she got high fived.
(+3)

Artemi would be great friends with her and Kristen Applebees! Shirokoi writting style makes me think they would be perfect at the Dimension 20 dome.

(+5)

"I like your bandage" "Thanks it kept me from dying"
I died xDD

(+2)

I just played the game and I love it<3

You have become one of my favorite VN creators with this wonder and Repeat<3<3.

(+3)

Quickly fell in love the story and its characters. When I was already at chap 3 I was sad as there was still chap 3, but on the bright side I was happy that cole change. Looking forward for the next chapter! Thank shirokoi!

I just fell in love with this short story, but when I went through version 2.3, I decided to download 2.4, but there is a problem "I'm from Russia" and I'm not very good with English, if the translation into Russian would be great

(-1)

can you tell me when your next up date is 

(+5)

Can we please get a gallery for the NSFW scenes. They are so well done. Please.

(+2)

yes indeed ! that would be an awesome feature 

(+1)

You can check all the cgi in the files outside the game.

I'm on android.. :(

You can download a root file viewer. I use MiX but anything that allows you to view game data files should work.  

(+1)

Omg yes, but not only for the NSFW scenes but for all the cgs we've unlocked

(+7)

I just finished this demo, I loved it. The Characters were all likable and relatable in their struggles, and the humor is top-notch. Honestly, I downloaded this for the porn at first, but damn I loved everything else so much that I forgot about the NSFW stuff until they came up, the fact that the characters would get animated in some scenes, how they would move around the screen, the art, the humor, the story, and the conversations are all so captivating. I couldn't help myself but play the entire game in one go, it's clear that everyone working on this project is filled with passion and love for what they do. When I finally get a credit card, I'll make sure to support you. Thanks for making this great VN accessible for free despite the time and effort put into it, I hope you the best :D

(+2)

Hey, Shiro. Isn't it time to replace that first screenshot for one from fullscreen mode?

(+13)

GIVE US THE GRANK SMEX SCENE 馃毄

(3 edits) (+3)

Wonderful VN of Temptation's Ballad, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can't wait for the continuation and what comes next.

The story is beautiful and also funny, especially with Sidd's mum when she is annoyed/angry and when Artemia doesn't know what subject Cole is talking about.

Small question, will we see funky scenes from Grank & Cole in the future? Because curiosity is eating away after Cole chatted it up with his friend about Grank.

Something tells me that Noodle is going to be a hunky anthro when he gains enough strength.

do you know when 

the next update is

(+3)

I don't think


anyone does

(+3)

that is

















extremely unfortunate

Its going to be a while since they put this one on the back burner and are currently working on their other VN "repeat"

(+2)

Nuuuuuu why you do that to agatha, I really like;;w;;
