You know what I haven't talked about on this blog for a long time? Porn. Time to change some that a bit. Know what else I haven't done? Reviewed a game.
I recently discovered (and the developer recently began making) Princess - in their own words, "It's a text&pictures porn RPG about a girls adventures in an unknown and dangerous world. The game is fully translated into English." You take on the role of a nameable princess, kidnapped from her fantasy world and forced to survive in the slums of a high-tech city.
You have a number of basic stats - Athletics, Agility, Int, etc., and your main goal is managing Hunger and Energy and Shame while trying to make money.
- There is not a lot of content yet. An hour or two of gameplay, if you read everything (which I recommend!)
- The opening part of the game is very luck dependent. I ended up save-scumming a little, rather than starve to death and have to start over.
- There are typos and some Russian words still scattered around. You can sometimes tell that English isn't their native language.
- G'damn it did I have fun. Like, tons of fun. For such a small game, it's just... great.
- The shame mechanic is really cool. I like the idea of a stat that limits how much sexy-time you can have, doling it out rather than letting you binge all at once. I also like very innocent characters, to the princess was extra neat. :)
- The writing is just the right length. One sentence descriptions when you want them, full pages full of text to help get you off. Did I mention it got me off? Like, repeatedly and intensely? It's been a long time since I found a hentai game that did that.
- It's in active development! Most projects don't last super-long, but this looks to be getting a release a month, with a not huge but decent amount of new content each time.
- Rape. It is possible to avoid if you're lucky and skilled, but your princess will probably get fucked by dirty men.
- Embarassment. This is the big one that the game runs off. If you don't like this, you'll probably want to stay away.
- Mermaid & Centaur. Not a major theme, but they're there, and you'll probably have sex with them by accident just following the normal storyline. Not my thing, but easy enough to ignore.
- Lactation. How much exposure you have to this is your own choice, but it's there. I mostly avoided it.
So, long story short, great game, would recommend, play and enjoy.
