Make Her Cum is a lewd sex simulator (or “Adult toy-play Simulator”) with assorted models.
No. Woot! Woot!

I received a free, “early access” copy of this game for review purposes — thanks DreamBig Games and Lemonhaze Studio!
Gameplay: published December 20th, 2021 (2/5★)
The goal of the game is to make women orgasm. Once you choose a lady, you must experiment with your sexual toybox to gain “points”. Each character has preferences; some women like things in their pussy, and others prefer things in their butt. If you do something they don’t like, you’ll gain “bad points” (ultimately leading to a “game over”). If you manage to muster enough “good points” to sexually satisfy your woman, you can feel good about yourself — you’re ready for the real thing!
If you’re not interested in catering to the characters’ needs, you may toggle “god mode” to make anybody like anything. If only real people had a “god mode” toggle! Actually, there’s no reason not to flip the “god switch” in Make Her Cum (unless you’re buying this game “for the challenge”). There’s no achievements or progression to see (and I somehow doubt the “bragging rights” are going to improve your social status).
Sexual Content: published December 20th, 2021 (2/5★)
The sexual content leaves a lot to be desired. Make Her Cum forces you to play in a specific way; unless you toggle “god mode”, every “playthrough” is going to clicking on the same four erogenous zones in a similar order. If you’re not jacking the mouse, you’re probably not progressing. Gaining “good points” is an uphill battle against decay and god awful camera controls. Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to fuck the girl next door and your eyes sorta whip around her room until you remember how to use your fingers?
Each sex toy may only be used on one of four body parts, decreasing immersion. When I see a “tongue” tool, I want to lick everything (yeah I’m a wierdo, so are you for reading an essay on a sex game!) Even if the characters aren’t programmed to respond accordingly, I should have the option to “roleplay” and collect points.
Overall, the characters need to move more in response to player input. Gaining “good points” should result in relaxed animations, and “bad points” should create tense animations. Players that are into consensual sex will enjoy the former, and players into domination or rape will enjoy the latter. It’s a win-win for everyone!
Story: published December 20th, 2021 (1/5★)
There’s no story whatsoever. Considering dialogue is conducted with text boxes (and not voice acting), DreamBig Games and Lemonhaze Studio have no excuse not to write unique dialogue for each character.
Sound: published December 20th, 2021 (3/5★)
The music is alright. It was thematically off, but at least it’s not royalty-free jazz or piano solos. I felt as though the music would be more appropriate for space exploration (and not so much woman exploration). It’s nice hearing the ladies moan, but their mouths don’t move; it’s as if they’re taking “faking it” to a new level by playing a recording to make us feel better. Otherwise, the lewd sounds (such as licking and penetration) sound alright.
Visuals: published December 20th, 2021 (2/5★)
The user-interface is alright. It’s clean and navigable, but the English is awkward. The “Settings” menu offers a nice seleciton of graphical preferences to increase accessibility for lower-end PCs. Using an RTX 2060, I was able to run the game on “EPIC” settings with little strain. Make Her Cum is graphically average (even on “EPIC” settings), but I was surprised by how little the game strained my computer. It seems like DreamBig Games and Lemonhaze Studio did a good job optimizing their software!
It’s possible to break the game if you’re not careful with the “Settings” menu. After selecting “Fullscreen”, my in-game cursor was calculated a distance from my actual cursor, forcing me to rely on audio ques to interact with the user-interface. As the “Settings” button is on the upper-right corner of the screen (and there’s no hotkey assigned to it), I had no option but to poke around for configuration files to find a fix. If this happens to you, “Fullscreen” may be toggled via the “F11” key. Forcing the application to window and is the only way to regain cursor control and access to the “Settings” menu.
The women look so average. Like, the only reason you’d find them attractive is if you know them or they’re doing something that someone hotter isn’t willing to do. The cast act like robots — they lie motionless, only moving in response to the mouse cursor. Using sex toys produces uncanny, robotic movement that’s exasperated by by the semi-realistic 3D models. Operation Lovecraft: Fallen Doll is a great example on how to animate “idle” positions and mouse interactivity. It may not have the same degree of interactivity as Make Her Cum, but at least the characters act like they’re alive.
Verdict: published December 20th, 2021 (2/5★)
At first, I was really excited to play with women in 3D! But as I learned the limitations of gameplay, I discovered Make Her Cum isn’t stronger than a flash game. The interactivity is limited, the graphics aren’t great, and the camera control is a nightmare. The ladies aren’t too bad, but the sex toys are way too plastic-y and movement is unnatural. I can’t recommend this game in its current state, but I do suggest keeping an eye on development. If the interactivity and animation were improved, I can see Make Her Cum becoming a short and sweet, reasonably cheap “Adult toy-play Simulator”!
