About the game
In the realm of Tentacles Thrive, you will be discovering new tentacle species, stealing Lilith's heart, mating to create new species, managing and reviving the Humana race, or conquering the world through strategic battles. It is an SLG game with a love sim element and real-time battles.

Join us if you enjoy our craft!

Here are some unique features:

  • Hand crafted frame by frame or 2.5D animation for breeding, battles and endings!
  • Real-time strategic battle with simple card game like element
  • Have a chance to enslave the enemies after a successful conquer, which can be used in the future battles
  • Aiming for 136+ species
  • Every monster, ally or enemy, possesses an unique effect to add in chaos on the battlefield


Living in a world filled with large and powerful monsters, the Humana Kingdom has been confined on a small island for as long as anyone can remember. One day a royal family member, Lilith, discovered that the materials she had been collecting to create fabulous clothing, were derived from creatures called Tentacle Monsters. This discovery, though seemingly benign, would became the event that shook the very foundations of the world and forever change the dynamic between Tentacles, the Humana Kingdom and all the other nations of TT.

Backgrounds of Lilith, Tentacles, and Humana Kingdom
Lilith -
most of Lilith's family was killed in an invasion by monsters. Being born into a wealthy family, she was later adopted by the royals. She is most famous for creating beautiful clothing with a secretive fabric (dead skin from tentacle monsters). Little did she know that eventually the tentacles would mistake her as one of their own, and ultimately treat her as their queen.

Tentacles - rare creatures that live in some of the worlds darkest places. They are incredibly adaptable, shifting willingly from being solitary creatures to eusociality after their first meeting with Lilith, thus treating her as their queen. This co-evolution will bring great benefits to both the Humana Kingdom and Tentacles, but only if certain conditions are continued to be met.

Humana Kingdom - possesses basic understanding of agriculture and melee weapons, but lack the time to further develop important technologies due to constant threats from other monster nations. They rely on their geographical advantage to defend themselves. Indeed if they did not have it they would have been completely destroyed long ago. Thus, are they in a war of attrition.

First impressions of v4:
The moods mechanic is really interesting, and makes this feel like an entirely different game!   I liked the previous version, and I look forward to seeing how this new change plays out.  The new (I think?) additions of more tentacle story arcs and at least one new animation (or more!) really shine.  

My only concern is that without the other types of bonding (feeding, playing, etc.) available, it feels like "bonding" is a constant necessity that could lose its appeal after too much repetition.  (Also by virtue of it feeling like a "necessity" more than a fun game mechanic.)  I already find myself clicking through scenes I'd previously looked forward to, trying to unlock/reinstate the ability to raise Relationship stats.  Do I just need to be patient and unlock "feed," "play," or "discipline" abilities later?  (I've mostly been playing short test games to get a feel for the new features.  And trying to unlock the Queen's Nest lmao.)

Also I can't seem to locate where Intel is recorded, now.  I can scout, but the "Intelligence" tab eludes me.  Maybe I'm just overlooking it.  The Encyclopedia being immediately accessible is fantastic, but it's a little frustrating that the save function is a bit more buried now.

I really appreciate the increased emphasis on getting new species at random when bonding is concerned, but are all wild encounters going to be a dice roll as well?  (This isn't a gripe; I've just noticed that I still get random offspring regardless of the method used.)

This is a huge change and it's obvious how much hard work went into it.  I hope that at least part of this ends up being useful and doesn't come off as petty complaining.


Aww, thank you for the detailed feedback.
1.There won't be feed, play and gift in newer design. We just apply the item/craft when we want to use them.
2. Intelligence should be on the Map (click the eye icon), after scouting is being unlocked. If you can't find it then it could be a bug. Please let me know~
3. Wild encounter can be less random, we can partner with an appropriate monster while exploring, and Lilith would offer some hopefully useful advice about the direction.

Thanks, that is very good to know.  I did come across the Intelligence tag after downloading the game and playing offline (I'm on Chrome) so I might have overlooked it during my first online attempts, or it may have been a fluke or bug with Chrome.

Thanks again for all the work that you put into your game, and your patience with the players.

I followed your instructions for saving, but no matter what I tried it doesn't load my save file.  I went to the local save location where it originally saved the "TTv4_Save.sol" file and moved it to the same folder where the original file is located.  I'm at a loss, but I really enjoy the game so far!  Any advice will be much appreciated.

Thank you for trying ^^ So how are you playing it, like web, swf or exe?


Weird, downloading through itch.io just gave me a lot of # files and no swf or exe, did i do something wrong? i tried uninstalling and reinstalling too. Really weird. guess i have to download through browser for now.

What is going to happen here now that Flash is being phased out?

(4 edits) (+1)

Anyone with Flash Player installed can still play all the updates much like now. Newgrounds Player is also available: https://www.newgrounds.com/flash/player
And Air will still continue to be supported by Adobe.

How can I unlock bonding option?

Try public v4 that are just released. I have simplified it.

every version of this game ive played i could never save and so i can never play for long with out restarting.


Downloadable version are easier:

To reuse your save, you must rename your newly downloaded file same as the one you saved your game, as well as putting it into the same directory of your previous file.  

It is more complicated to get web version's save to work for newer version. You have to find and replace new save by locating the path much like below:

Newgrounds save location (Firefox):
C:\Users\[user account name]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[RANDOM LETTERS]\uploads.ungrounded.net

Any chance of recovering a browser save in Chrome, post-update?  I have the downloaded version, but I originally started playing on here, and was quite a ways into the game.

really loving the game so far but i really wanna know what exactly gives my soldiers more experience? how do i level them up?

You can gain relationship points (RP) through bonding, missions or battle. Some moods offer more points so it requires a bit planning in v4.

hey nonoplayer really really great game ,

but can you make the queen nest by selected monsters and not randomly?

thank you, really great game 

when i get the money i am gonna donate you 650$, for only if you keep going and don't stop from improving this game.

Thank you mate. Queen's Nest is designed for more rapid breeding, so it has a downside. Bonding offers more control when needed. Give public v4 a try if you haven't ^^

Is the Queen's Nest fully removed from v4?  I liked the options of rapid/random breeding verses bonding.  Added to the sense of strategy.


Love the game, but it's a bit confusing on what I'm supposed to do. Also whenever I look up what I should be doing or where I'm supposed to go, there rarely is any information. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be doing right now. Currently I've gotten to the nursing Instict, not sure if I have it or if that's next, and I don't know how to start a battle, which I assume is how I progress through the game. Please if anyone knows how to help me, please do.

Sorry for the confusing UX/UI. Public v4 is out, I have simplified quite a bit. Give it a try if you haven't ^^

hey nonoplayer  i loved this game so much thank you for this lovely game ,btw i have 2 questions .....1)how  to reuse the file which i saved on v3 where will the swf save file be located at ?

2) where is the v4 can you please give me A link  thank you in advance .........pleaseeeeeeeeeee  create more games like this one 

(1 edit)

Public v4 is out, you can give it a try ^^ Though it is not compatible with old saves.

Newgrounds save location (Firefox):
C:\Users\[user account name]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[RANDOM LETTERS]\uploads.ungrounded.net
Newgrounds save location (Chrome):
C:\Users\[user account name]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects\[RANDOM LETTERS]\uploads.ungrounded.net\[RANDOM LETTERS]
itch save location (Firefox):
C:\Users\[user account name]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[RANDOM LETTERS]\commondatastorage.googleapis.com\itchio\upload2\game\[RANDOM LETTERS]

Local save location:
First narrow down the scope by going to this directory. **(See how to unhid AppData folder if you have it hidden: https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/cant-see-the-appdata-folder/)
C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[Random Number]\localhost

And then search with the save's name: TTv4_Save.sol

This path should simulate where you store your exe or swf. For example, if the exe or swf is placed on your Desktop, TTv4_Save.sol should be inside a folder call Desktop. Also exe and swf saves aren't compatible with each other.

Hello, I have a problem where after conquering all of the lads adjacent to the secret garden (the first available ones), the Queens Nest no longer works. It becomes completely unclickable. I've tried both the exe and the swf version, is this supposed to be like this, or is it a bug?

I think I figured it out. I lost Slime Eye, and after finding another, the Queens Nest was open again

Thanks for reporting back~ I also tested it, confirm functioning properly^^

Hi, I found this game on wetpussygames and wanted to come support the producer, so I paid and downloaded it here, but after the intro impregnation video, it doesn't go to the running home screen, and the only thing you can do is explore or rest, but explore doesn't allow you to select a place on the map. I am using windows 10 home, just updated the adobe flash player, and am using the 3_09.exe from this site. I saw that someone else had the same problem, but did not see the solution posted.

Thank you for your support mate. I believe it is fixed in v4, but thank you for reporting.

Hi, so I've noticed there is an issue with some of the bonding scenes in this version. One is the Beringarius, where the dialogue for the first encounter seems to continue on to the second encounter, to the point where when the scene transitions twice, it freezes on the first animation. The dialogue box disappears and I'm stuck looking at it with no way of skipping.

Here's a video of the glitch

The other bonding scene issue is Gritario; it keeps repeating the first encounter scenario every time I bond with 'em. =/


Thank you NioTech. They have been fixed in future versions.


the game is not saving


(1 edit)

If you use Chrome to play web version, there is a possibility it wasn't saved. By clicking a few more times I was able to save it somehow. I suspect Chrome has started to eliminate some shareobjects(save data) that Flash uses.

I strongly suggest downloading and playing the swf or exe versions above. Though be aware that the next public version(v4.00) would not be compatible with older saves.


I discovered this game a few days ago (from a PornHub compilation vid, of all things) and I've already given one friend carpal tunnel because she's been playing it non-stop since I shared it with my buds bahaha - Absolutely adore the art and animation style of the monsters, can't wait for more updates on the gameplay, two thumbs up!


Haha, good to know you are putting some mouse to work ^O^

Thank you mate.

Yo, Nonoplayer! Can I volunteer to help you translate the game to spanish? I'm Argentinian. Spanish is my native language and im fluent in english.
My Email is pepsimanh@gmail.com (dont laugh please. I'll get a new one sometime...)

(1 edit)

There is no plan for translation yet, as there will be 300+k words. I want to finish most core features before working on translation. But thank you for the offer!

Oh. Thanks for answering anyways! I'm definetly looking forward to updates. Loving this concept you've got! <3

Hey Nonoplayer, I'd like to feature you with an interview over at my site http://kinkygaming.com/  If you are interested you can check it out and drop me an email that you can find in the contacts page.



Sure Alex, my pleasure ^^

how do you train for special items

You put a tentacle monster to train in certain territories for certain special items, and it takes time.

how do you  know which territories go with which monsters?

I don’t think the monster changes anything, I think only the territory changes the item received

so I am having an issue on v3_08 where the tenticles with the effect after 3 turns turns a enemy into an ally isnt working its effect wont work in 3 turns I saw it work once and it had been in more then 3 turns and didnt work again even with a army of them it never once worked even with 6 hearts

Okay thanks I will investigate.

er I've downloaded this game before, but when I switched phone and tried today, I can download both files but they don't seem to open? Thx in advanced

Not sure what phone you were using, but unfortunately the game doesn't support iOS nor Android yet.

For real? I know I've downloaded them game on mobile before, was on Android. Could it be because I was using puffin brswer to download? It's a adobeflashplayer brownser so it works like a computer, but the game was on a app. I might try that again. And keep up the work:)

(1 edit)

Thank you mate~ 

I heard puffin works, though I have never tested it.

I can download the files but they can't open unfortunately :( if I play via puffin will the game still be saved as I play? And btw is the app offline? I might try to play offline if I figure out a way to download a working version of the app.

I like the game very much!
One question: Is there a place where you can see which monsters are implemented yet? Just wondering if I did miss one or saw all available ;D

All available monsters are in the Tentacles Encyclopedia in the game, where it is not a question mark ^^

News about update? Does someone have performance issues with this!? Is it a bug or. . . THANKS for good game ! ❤️

I usually make post update on my Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/nonoplayer

Thanks bro! <3

how do i get special items?

(1 edit)

Look down a few comments, there it is. But in case you are too lazy, use train on territories to obtain special items.

thank you :>

Can't save in Exe, followed the directory that Nonoplayer posted a few comments down, it led me nothing. 

(1 edit)

Just tested it, it works on my pc. Did you move the exe file after saving? Tell me more details.

how do you move the file?

how do i expand the map?

Look at the menu thing on the bottom of the screen and click that circular eye thing, which leads you to a map you click the areas available and then you need the skill “conquer” to expand territory

where is skill "conquer"?

i only see "explore"

(1 edit)

You have to use Instinct to obtain more skillsets. I think Invade is the third/forth unlockable skillset.


How do you get to the bonding? I've unlocked it in the tree but I'm not seeing a button to press.

Its the 5th skill, have to use Train to obtain special items on conquered territories.

Nice game. Hoping for there soon to be a gallery feature.

I hear you.

Deleted post

I think your version is either bugged or outdated, because after you get pregnant in the beginning you get back to the kingdom and then back to the first area, then you go to the house and then you come out and you get the instinct tree, which is where you get the skills from. Also, you don’t seem to have the eye-ish thing on the top center of the “actions area”, basically where explore is, and that’s how you conquer other areas. Watch other people’s videos to see the difference.

Thank you for recording the whole thing to me. Though the thing that happens at 0:44 is a bit strange, I am not able to replicate it. May I ask were you playing on Windows?

(1 edit)

The scene at 0:44s played normally, but the video was lagging because this computer can't record well.  I just skipped through the scene quickly.

OS is Win 8.1 Pro(edited) using Adobe Flash Player

Okay thanks~ What version were you playing?

Do you plan to make and apk version of the game? 

I do but I can't give an exact date.


I got 18 teritories, and almost got all monster except pondou, and i dont know how to proceed, idk what i should do except hunt and breed. can someone give me advice? ty 

sorry bad english

You are basically done with the game so far.

ty for the reply. can i load my game after update? or i need to restart all over again?

I’m not sure about that, think it’s yes, but I don’t know how. I myself can’t load but I’m not very good with technology

Save/load work on downloaded versions. For web, it is possible, but you will have to replace new save with previous manually.

itch save location (Firefox):
C:\Users\[user account name]\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\[RANDOM LETTERS]\commondatastorage.googleapis.com\itchio\upload2\game\[RANDOM LETTERS]

can you show me how to expand the map

Hello nono.

First: Thak you for the game!

Once it is finished, i will buy it.

But i have a question: I conquered all the territories that are available and have the research for the first branch of the instinct tree done, but i have no idea how i shall unlock the other purple diamonds. The only hint is "Achieve enlightenment goals to learn new abilities." but i have no idea what does that mean.

I would be really thankful if you could help me out with this topic.

Thank you and have a nice day.

Other skillsets are not developed yet ^^

Ummm... I'm playing on mobile anddd... Why is the save not working?

where is apk setup?

There are no apk version yet.

Is it possible to expand more than 2 fields in one way...or not 

(1 edit)

What do you mean by two fields in one way? Do you mean conquest?

Only 18 territories are made. I plan to focus on more features and contents before expanding, as it should have given us some good idea how the game work.

Hey I saved the game but when I went to play it again I could not load it.

If you are on the .exe version, then save doesn’t work well. If you are on the .swf version, then save works well as long as there isn’t a new version. If you have a problem, be reminded that save is still a “Work In Progress” system

I cant seem to unlock the instinct tree. I have played through it for a little bit. I also have like 12 monsters. I cant do anything other than hunt and breed. I don't get any of things that I see other people getting. I have done what others have done and rested once I get to the hidden garden. The monster brings me the head of a slain enemy. But after that I cant do anything else other than mate, hunt, and explore. I cant attack or anything. I feel like I missed something and will feel really stupid once im told what I missed

follow the instinct tree, the hints are the information that pops up when you click the purple diamonds, when they are green that means you can unlock them. And as for why you can’t advance, that’s because you have nothing other than explore, hunting, etc, while others have nursing, bonding, invade, scouting, etc.

there isn't a purple dimond

HHAHAHAAHH  I told you once I found it I would be angry with my self lol. Thanks Man. Really enjoying the game even with that mestake on my part

guys pls help i just didnt decovered how u can umlock new world,and the secret gardens pls help (respect)pls

You have to get the instinct tree to the point where you unlock the skill “invade” and then use invade to attack new areas and if you are successful, you claim that part of the world. And as for the secret gardens I don’t understand what you mean.

tnx appreciated sorry bout my language just exited and when are you gonna be able to find secret gardens.

secret gardens is the area on the mountains to the very left of your screen in the starting place, you can find it right away, so I think you mean something else?

sorry for all my questions but i meant how explore or something else

you explore in an area by clicking the button “explore” on the center bottom of the screen and then click a location, and to get to other places you click that eye in the top of the thing at the bottom of the screen where “explore” is

First of all, I should note that I hardly will pass this game to the end. First of all it is animation. I just can not keep myself every time I see a new monster in the business or one of my favorite old ones.
The second reason is not so good - the mechanics are not very clear to me. What does RP do? Or how to get the level without ditching the monster? These are all the problems of "alpha" and I immediately see what the main focus was on (I cannot describe how divine animation is).
I found a bug in one of the previous versions - if you do not save the game until the second using the Queen's Lair, the game crashes. But otherwise, with the software part of the game, it's all right.

I admire the quality of your work even in such an early version. I have already said about animation, I also really like sound design (Lilith's moans and monster sounds merge into beautiful music). The style took the best of the Japanese and European tradition and the design of everything from monsters to Lilith’s dress (I don’t know whose idea is to make her pregnant belly sticking out through the cut, but this is brilliant) it's all so ingenious everywhere and grotesque where it is needed

To summarize: it remains to tighten the igromechanical part and it will be just perfect
