You play as a detective trying to solve a series of crimes.
After a murder case, you are met with the deceased wife, Stella.
Then, you begin to discover many secrets revolving around her.
This adult VN follows the private and the professional life of a private eye who becomes engaged with a truly vile and shady sex cult that creates a drug that lowers inhibitions and increases sex drive, and then utilises that drug to abuse women in quite heinous ways.
Your role is to uncover the secrets, starting with a serious case. Your ex client has been found dead, and the first person you wan t to interrogate is his wife – Stella. Stella comes of as a nymphomaniac who lets you in on a secret – she and her now deceased husband loved to experiment, and she has found a way to relive all of her dirty fantasies.
We find out that Stella has also gotten into the cult and One night, you save Stella from the men, but soon after start discovering more details. In the meantime, your ex’s daughter has just moved in with you in hopes of finding a job in the city. You let her stay so she could find her feet, and she gets a job at a Beauty Salon which is also connected with the cult.
The narrative carries a dark tone, enriched by the film noir aesthetic and atmosphere. While your choices allow for some degree of influence over the main character’s development, it’s important to note that the MC was intentionally crafted as a creep, making it challenging to completely veer away from that aspect.
However, I would say that this game is a mixed bag if you would choose to play a less vile main character and perhaps even have a more wholesome romance. It can be very wholesome or turn out to be a minefield of potential threesomes you may not want, depending on your love interest. However, there isn’t really much character development or depth in this story. There are the usual nymphos (some of them are however drugged up! ), a married woman you have to save, and your step-daughter Judy.
I still have some issues with a couple aspects of this action-packed game. First of all, MC doesn’t sound like a detective or a former police officer based on his behaviour and remarks. Similar to how he doesn’t appear to be as powerful and confident as a highly male figure, it appears that ladies enjoy him despite the fact that he doesn’t always exude that assurance.
Additionally, there are depictions of NTR and lesbian scenes, so I advise against playing this game if you don’t enjoy it.
The game’s visuals appear dated, initially lacking animations, though they do show some improvement as you progress. Nevertheless, I didn’t find the visual content particularly appealing, especially in terms of the portrayal of female characters.
One peculiar aspect is the inconsistent depiction of smiles throughout the game, with Judy being the only character I found slightly attractive.
It’s worth noting that the main character’s face is rarely shown; the scenes are predominantly presented from a first-person perspective, enhancing the immersive quality of the experience.
While you do have some control over the MC’s actions and can exert influence on the game’s progression, I couldn’t fully enjoy the game due to the dated visuals and unattractive models.
You can monitor your character’s statistics in the upper left corner, tracking your relationship progress with female characters and your lust points. Insufficient lust points may restrict access to certain scenes.
As for the music and sound effects, they’re passable but unremarkable, not adding anything particularly special to the gaming experience.
Despite its narrative quality and intriguing mystery elements, this game didn’t leave a strong impression on me. I found the visual aspect of the story to be unappealing, and it detracted from my overall enjoyment during gameplay. Furthermore, some scenes are not skippable and you have no option to avoid them.
If you want to play something from PhillyGames, I recommend you try playing The City of Broken Dreamers.
