“Future Fragments” is a lewd platformer in the style of “Impossible Mission”, where you are looking for various fragments to protect your world from the dangerous power that these objects represent.
Starting a new game in this Electric Level demo, initiates a long introduction to everything – and by long it takes over 15 minutes to complete, assuming you don’t skip anything.
Once that is out-of-the-way, the game starts properly, with you arriving on a Save Pad, which is where you return to when you die, or when you continue a game. Your character can be controlled using the keyboard or joypad (with the latter being much easier), and you have the ability to fire a weapon or special items that let you perform tasks easier. It’s pretty simple to get used to.
This demo starts off on the third level, and it is vast, technically challenging map filled with switches that allow you to reverse gravity so you can walk on ceilings. This is needed to solve puzzles and access various areas that normally would be impossible to get to. A lot of the switches require timing to activate, so that you land at the correct place.
There are many enemies that traverse this map, as well as quite a few that just want to negotiate a truce. If an enemy does attack you, you are temporarily stunned, and which, if you don’t snap out of it, will cause the enemy to enjoy themselves at your expense. So keep this in mind, if you get assaulted too many times, then you will end up at the last Save Point (that’s where you can resume your quest).
The in-game graphics are very nice – reminiscent of Amiga games like “Gods”, and are animated and detailed very nicely (the same could also be said about ” Future Fragments” lewd content, as the animations and whatnot look like well-made hentai artworks). The game’s music is fine, and the sound effects do its job, but the best part of the game is the story.
You see, the story is very funny. As it consists of bored enemies, hackers who think that “password123” is a strong password (it’s not, by the way), some who are protective of the people under their charge, and the sadistic Vie who takes great delight in sending two soldiers to “somewhere far away” (there will be no spoilers here!).
The playable map is challenging, both with the amount and variety of enemies (aside from foot soldiers, there are laser cannons and flying electrical… things), the size and the complexity of it all, as you constantly have to change gravity backwards and forwards to get to new places and people. This level certainly won’t be completed quickly. Fortunately enough for you, there is a map that you can use, and that most definitely helps you out a whole lot.
So if you like platforming games, lewd stuff and want to combine the two together, then “Future Fragments” will certainly be worth checking out (you can download and try the demo right now if you feel like it). Here’s a fair warning though, “Future Fragments” will take a lot of timing and practice to get to various locations.
Even so, the game is certainly worth exploring. Especially since “Future Fragments” offers a very high quality in terms of voice acting (the topnotch voice acting is what makes “Future Fragments” stand out from the crowd).
+ Very nice graphics (intro sequence aside)
+ Music and sound does the job
+ Plenty of comedy
+ Also, plenty of lewd happenings
+ Simple controls and gameplay is easy to get the hang of
+ Voice acting is great, and all characters are voiced as well
– Graphics for intro sequence could be better
– The game takes quite some patience to master, as some timing is occasionally required for activating switches
Sound and music: 3/5
Replay value: 3/5
If you like platforming games, then Future Fragments is certainly worth looking into. As the game offers great graphics, voice acting and gameplay value. However, patience is required, but the results are worth it. So it will be interesting to see how development progresses.
