You are a lawyer working on a shocking murder mystery.
Lydia Collier, the main suspect, seems to be hiding some secrets.
In addition to that, there are more things to uncover and delve into.
This exciting adult VN centres around a London-based lawyer summoned to defend the wife of a prominent and vanished businessman, Charles Collier. Your role involves accompanying the defendant, Lydia Collier, during police interrogations up to the court trial, where you’ll assess evidence and build her case. In the midst of this, you’ll encounter a variety of characters, delving into the life of a prosperous single lawyer in London.
What truly makes this VN engaging is its exceptional storytelling, woven with intriguing plot twists and opportunities to pursue different romantic interests. Meet a seductive police officer with a mysterious history, your endearing assistant Ellie, and even the defendant herself, Lydia. Whether it’s your rookie assistant or a local police officer who captures your attention, you’ll have the ability to choose who to interact with and potentially form a romantic bond.
Amid this web of intrigue, the game presents diverse romantic paths that are anything but straightforward. You’ll encounter love interests with options to explore bimbofication and submission dynamics, delve into family corruption scenarios, or embark on wholesome romances.
It’s remarkable how the author manages to juggle the various romantic possibilities, the types of relationships, and the semi-open-ended main storyline. This is truly a comprehensive game, carefully designed with different paths offering distinct content, both in terms of sexual encounters and narrative. Replaying the game revealed substantial differences, and the choices are impactful.
In terms of sexual content and fetishes, there’s an array to choose from, but all are avoidable. The character development is skillfully executed. These aren’t mindless harem girls; they will show you their emotions like jealousy, conflict, and preferences, also based on your choices, which can cause a change in the narrative. With this in mind, you have the freedom to tailor a character’s behaviour according to your liking. The protagonist that you are playing as, the MC, isn’t perfect; he has flaws, and the female characters won’t simply fall for him without reason, another thing that is different from other adult games. Sometimes, your looks and sweet talk will not make a character want you immediately.
Moreover, the author’s detailed creation of an alternative London stands out. Each day, you can read various city news stories, and the detailing extends to the phone and laptop interfaces. You’ll come across news on London’s political climate and intriguing tidbits, including updates on TITAN, a recently formed elite police force that raises suspicion with each passing day. Their mission to rid the city of crime and drug trafficking is what everyone is talking about, but once you realise that they were involved in Lydia’s case, you start thinking that there’s something else behind it.
Similarly, you will progress in the revelation of the mystery behind Lydia’s accusation and be her possible saviour. Each day, you can choose which part of the story you will pursue, and you can also deal with other cases.
So, all in all, this isn’t your typical porn story, although the porn elements are great and the female characters are really sexy. The plot is complicated enough to make you want to see what happens next, all while keeping all the sexy and kinky elements of a regular adult game. The one thing I noticed that could be slightly annoying once you focus on it, is the lack of punctuation in most of the sentences, but that’s an easy fix.
The visual aspect is also high-quality. The only thing that bothered me is the fact that there are not many animations, and they are quite short. There are also some female characters, which I didn’t find attractive, but that is just a personal issue. I like the fact that special attention is paid to girls’ appearance and outfit changes when going on a date, for example; then they will be wearing more make-up and have a different kind of hairstyle, and at work they look more simple and casual.
Also, the whole design of environments and lighting is great.
In short, your choices here matter, and there is no illusion of choice. Similarly, sometimes you will just have to deal with the consequences of your actions, and the characters will definitely show you a piece of their mind if you do something wrong.
Also, the level of realness and actual personality is praiseworthy in this game, as each and every character is distinct. When you combine great writing, credible characters, and a mysterious murder case that needs to be solved, you get one of the most top-notch games available right now.
I also like the attention to detail that has been paid to the mobile phone interface and the laptop interface. There, you can read the news that is updated each day when you get to your office, check out social media and access galleries of other characters, send messages, and even snoop around Ellie’s computer when she’s not there. I believe this is a wide array of options that have been well thought out.
The music and sound effects are well used, and they go quite nicely with the overall feel of the story. You can change your name at the beginning of the story to make the game more immersive.
Defending Lydia Collier has a really captivating story compared to other adult visual novels I’ve tried. The art goes well with it, making it one of my top picks to play. The only drawback could be the lack of punctuation and the fact that some renders and models look outdated in comparison to the games that are coming out nowadays. The different kinks in the game are really interesting, but they are all avoidable, which allows you a lot of freedom in deciding what you want to see.
Some tags are: vaginal sex, oral sex, handjob, blowjob, creampie, virgin, BDSM, roleplay, cheating, choking, humilliation.
I recommend you play this amazing game. You can also check the dev’s social media below.
