Foreword

I received a free copy of this game from the developers (after I asked nicely. . . thanks guys!)

Gameplay

Search for hidden objects to unlock lewds. The goal of each level is to locate each of up to three types of objects. It’s like “Where’s Waldo”, but instead of a stripe-suited satisfaction you get sexual satisfaction! Honestly, the gameplay is grossly unremarkable. Unlike the early Seek games, there is little interactivity. You don’t solve puzzles or open hidden compartments, you just look for a designated number of decals. There are a few levels where the hidden objects move (and these are the funnest levels by far.) If you get stuck, you’re gonna stay stuck (because to my knowledge, there are no “hint” or cheat-buttons.)

Story

Aurora is a digital world of distressed waifus, and they need your help! “Help” includes rounding up ghosts, screws, stars, and a variety of miscellaneous objects — in exchange for your efforts, the waifus of Aurora are ready to return the favor!

Visuals

The titlescreen features an animated waifu and lots of sparkly visual effects — I’m sold! You may adjust audio and language preferences from the “Setting” selection. You may review unlocked CGs from the level-select screen, which doubles as a gallery. Unfortunately, when viewing CGs, the user-interface cannot be hidden. I fiddled around with the keyboard, and instead I broke the gallery. . . I managed to duplicate one of the waifus, creating some-sort of lewd soup of glitchy tiddies! It’s. . . not as good as it sounds. Believe me, I tried it!

The Goods

There are eight sex-scenes to unlock (provided the DLC is installed.) There is a sex-scene for that corresponds to each waifu. They are comprised of a single animated CG, with two variants for progression and climax. Most of the CGs showcase a woman and one or more disembodied wieners; however, there are a few with light BDSM elements and one with tentacles! The animation and artwork is very high-quality, and I loved the dripping climaxes each sex-scene has to offer. You can also unlock the lewd/non-lewd versions of each level, minus the hidden objects. This adds another eight base, animated CGs to the gallery (or sixteen with variants for undress). It’s a shame the artwork isn’t interactive!

Verdict

I do recommend this game! However, it’s important to note that the gameplay is very weak. Aurora has a great gallery of lewd CGs, but it’s locked behind a twenty-thirty minutes of mundane labor. Hidden object/point-‘n-clickers can be fun, but without interesting mechanics you might as well play a round of fifty-two card pickup. I wish there were more levels with interactive objects, such as the disappearing ghosts and florescent butterflies. “Catching” hidden objects makes for a more engaging experience, and I’m sure it could be tied to lewding waifus somehow. Imagine, if every tentacle you catch means another tentacle catches the protagonist!
