ok, so i read through the thread, and IF i understand this correctly: you cant beat the game / game gets considerable harder when you try to watch porn scenes. in other words; the game punishes you for wanting to fap.

is this correct? if yes, then this has to be the worst porn game design i have seen this year, and probably last year as well. i hope im wrong.

yes but actually no,
the game gets harder if you try to watch porn scenes, but it's hard for normal mode
you can tolerate it by setting back to easy mode (which almost guarantee "escape battle scene" every enemy, and enemy disappears when you escape them) so it's beatable.
thus easy mode allows you to fight easy, farm easy, etc.

I wrote a review originally stating the game might become unwinnable, but after looking through it again, I think I may have exaggerated it. Modified it (for like the 5th time, I may be liking this game a little too much despite its flaws).

The more Marle gets raped, the weaker she will get to sexual attacks in general, which make battles against mooks harder, incentivizing evading battles over killing mooks.

However, the leveling of the game is very lenient (lategame enemies can level you once per battle), and Marle learns all her skills quite quickly. Unless you did nothing but throw Marle onto dicks and tentacles from the very beginning and never won a battle, you should still be capable of clearing the game, I believe.


Is it bad game design? ...Honestly, yeah. I won't deny that. However, I personally give it a pass for being good thematic design, because obviously the MC is going to get weaker to sex the more she does it. That's the entire idea behind corruption. We see it in H-anime and manga all the time where a once great hero just becomes a nympho wreck. Other games do it through H-scenes, while this game does it through gameplay.

Hmm, the monster summoning apparatus seems kinda buggy - I cannot use it.
Was anyone else able to use the item yet?

Works fine for me. The top orb does nothing, the bottom orb will scroll through every enemy type and ask you what you want to summon, then capping it off with whether you want them to find normally or only use sexual attacks.

I obtained the "monster summoning apparatus" but cannot interact with it from my inventory. in the inn's basement are no new things to interact with apart from the magic box. I do have however not completed the boss fight yet, if that's the cause of this problem.

if you want the cg recollection room, go to the guild top left of the city, talk to the girl at the counter, pay some ingame money and there you go

From the preview images it looks like this one could use a "tentacles" tag.
Thanks!
Yes, very much so.
I think there's only 2 maps with humans where she gets dicked. Otherwise, it's either tentacles or tentacles and flesh colored or green dicks.

I can understand amateurs translating trash, because they have such taste... but Kagura Games? I wish they would translate Apostle already. Or that new ONEONE1 game.

thanks for your reply. yeah i will give this game a shot later, currently playing 2 other rpgm so it may tke a while.
as long as i can still beat the game its okay i guess. i just hate it when devs punish you for wanting to enjoy their art, in a PORN game. because that encourages you to stay away from fapping. makes no sense to me.

after many years of porn consumption im simply to degenerate to enjoy vanilla or bimbo stuff. because 90% of games are like that.

for me, real corruption games = first half of the game = her being raped, crying, fighting back. at the middle = she kinda starts to accept it, this is her life now. towards the end = she starts to enjoy it.

basically only the last 3-4 scenes should be 'bimbo' ' happy face / ahego' face CG. the rest should all be rape.
atleast thats how i see corruption.

the WHOLE POINT of corruption is to corrupt her. thats your END goal. turning some kind of feminist into a slut. thats a long way. this doesnt happen after 2-3 scenes. i usually turn games off as soon as they start to be sluts, cause i lose interest then.

sadly most devs false tag. its the same with pregnany. there are many games where devs tag pregnancy, and then its literally only one 10 sec bad end CG scene in the entire game. wtf.
As a joke here strictly, I would like all of us who had played enough H games as to be selective of what kind of fap materials we use to take 5 mins to think of " what the fuck are we doing with our lives here".

Anyone know how to get the cum pool scene from the image previews? None of the enemies seemed to trigger it, unless I missed something
