Vilelab games “Indecent desires” is a very adult +18 intrigue/drama visual novel in the mould of something like the TV-series “Dallas” or “Dynasty”, with a bit of “Beverly Hills 902010” thrown into the mix (“Indecent desires” really does feel and look like the naughty +18 lewd version of those TV-series).
Starting at a new University, you now live with one of your mother’s friends, who happens to be a very nice-looking woman called Sarah. In addition to you and her, there are also two other girls staying in the same place. Furthermore, there is a maid who is supposed to regularly clean the house as well, all of which could lead to some risqué adult situations.
Right off the bat, the story is well written. Whilst some of the English is a bit stilted and occasionally a bit anachronistic, as well as a penchant for not capitalising i’s when a character is talking about themselves, it is still very interesting, especially as most characters are two-faced: What they say and what they think are quite often the opposite of each other.
In addition to that, the protagonist is pretty much a voyeuristic pervert – quite willing to peek under Sarah’s robe, watch her naked and later on watch two other girls play around – as well as a part-time blackmailer. However, the more perverted options usually end with you getting caught out and ending the game.
Unfortunately making “wrong” choices is a bit anti-climatic, as you just end up back at the title screen – some sort of epilogue, or closure would be nice. In addition to the aforementioned characters, you also meet a most likely still-drunk Russian girl called Karena, who just wants to drink and smoke, and the misogynist Trevor.
The sex scenes are animated, which makes a nice change, and usually go through different angles of the event, but the animation is a bit basic. As you can see, the graphics, as seems to be the vogue with these sorts of games, use rendered 3D models, which certainly allows for a lot of detail and depth.
Most of the backgrounds are just as good as the characters, although the ones for when you’re in an unnamed city do seem slightly out-of-place. The game is going to be episodic in nature (which is why the episodes aren’t particularly long), with the developers hoping to release one episode a month.
So the game could work well as long as continual attention is paid to the story (especially continuity) and the language used. Oh well, time will tell. As for here and now though, I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve experienced in “Indecent Desires” so far. Even so, there are some cons in the game that stops me from giving “Indecent Desires” a perfect score.
You see, I find the game’s music to be rather boring (that’s a pure gameplay experience killer for me), and like I mentioned before. Nothing really happens when you make bad choices. Furthermore, for some odd reason, the skip button doesn’t always work for some of the scenes in the game. In other words, you might not be able to skip some scenes when you want to…
Even so though, I still find “Indecent Desires” to be a great looking and interesting +18 erotic visual novel game. Simply put, if you’re into erotic visual novel games, then you might want to give “Indecent Desires” a try (especially since Chapter 1 is 100% free to play).
+ Very nice graphics, both for characters and most of the backgrounds too
+ Partial voices will be added
+ Story is intriguing as are the different characters
– Music rather boring
– A bit more attention to the usage of English would be a good idea
– Skip button doesn’t always work for some scenes
– Nothing happens (aside from being sent to the title screen) for really bad choices
Sound and music: 3/5
Replay value: 3/5
“Indecent Desires” is a very adult visual novel (both in theme and visuals) that’s also very interesting, and why is that? Because the game looks great on the graphics and visuals front, has hot babes, an intriguing story and offers some really nice lewd content. So it is well worth checking out, even though the sex scenes are a bit simplistic. I would also like to point out that a bit more attention of grammar couldn’t wouldn’t go amiss either. So with a little bit of care, a very compelling story could be made out of the series as a whole.
