Drapri Guu-Ta-Life

Really, the name of this game says it all... 'A Dragon Princess's Lazy Life'.  This game centers around Takeru, a young martial artist NEET who will do anything to avoid real work, his osananajimi Suzuka, and the dragon he picked up off the street, Haru.  I'll be honest, this game is pretty similar to Nekonin in length, if not in quality (it is slightly better), and I mostly enjoyed it because the double-boke of Takeru and Haru is so hilarious.  Neither Takeru nor Haru has anything resembling common sense, and they are both perfect sponges, so most of the game has them quite naturally sponging off the people around them, Suzuka in particular.

The H in this game is plentiful for its length (four scenes in a three hour game), but they really aren't that important.  Neither Haru nor Takeru has a serious bone in their body (all they think about is food).

I'll be honest when I say I can't call this a great game... but it was amusing.  I'd hoped that this would be a new plotge by Whirlpool, but I guess I can live with a short comedy VN.

Well I guess nowadays Whirlpool can't make something like Suzukaze no Melt again, although piece series might be interesting. At least their short VNs series, Nekonin, can get them some money, although whether Nekonin series is good on it's own or it's just merely follow Nekopara's trend is another matter. What I can say is that Drapri here is probably intended as their second short VNs series after Nekonin, so perhaps we may have the second part of this in the future.

Just by what I saw?  Almost definitely.  Unfortunately, I can't say whether I'll bother with a second entry... I liked the humor, but even the best humor can get old if it is repeated often enough.

It's not that Whirlpool can't make games like that anymore... it is more like it isn't cost-effective at present.  To be blunt, coronavirus has screwed up the VN world pretty badly, with otakus less likely to splurge on random charage or figurines than they were a year ago... and things were already on the decline then.

This looks to have accelerated a trend that was already rising, toward decreasing VN production and a more specific decline in the charage-lover demographic due to financial issues.
