So, you’ve always wanted to visit the “Democratic People’s Republic of Korea”, but were too afraid of what might befall you?  Well, “Stay! Stay! Democratic People’s Republic of Korea!” will sort out your wanderlust, somewhat – and without the danger of being stuck there.

“Stay! Stay!” makes it quite clear from the very start how far behind the time’s North Korea is.

“Stay! Stay! Democratic People’s Republic of Korea” is a spoof of the “Go! Go! Nippon” series, but obviously set in North Korea.  It employs satire to poke fun at American knowledge and attitudes towards North Korea, as well as North Korean attitudes to the rest of the world.

“Stay! Stay! “has no problem with poking fun at artists.

The game features a rather idiotic American soldier tricked into visiting Pyongyang after exchanging pen-pal messages and playing Panzermadels Online. When he arrives, he’s astonished to find that his pen-pals are females, and they want him to stay in their apartment. He’s even more astonished to find that he isn’t allowed to go anywhere on his own, the food on display in a shop is fake, and he is universally despised.

Yes, there is lewd content to be found in “Stay! Stay!” (not as much as I would like though). Even so, I would still recommend you to download the free +18 patch via DEVGRU-P.

The story is sharp and mostly very funny, although it is not above detailing the hardships and problems that the citizens of North Korea suffer – this is especially poignant when a woman in a restaurant drops her food on the floor, and the protagonist is reminded that she isn’t allowed to replace it.

Considering how easily the protagonist was tricked into going to North Korea, you have to wonder…

The two girls whom the protagonist stay with are always very nice to him, but will reign in his comments every so often, and has no problem burning his clothes if they think it would offend the Great Leader or cause them problems. It’s never known how much they believe in the rhetoric coming from the Great Leader, but considering the real reason the protagonist is invited. So I think that It’s safe to assume a fair bit is just for keeping up appearances.

It doesn’t take long before you realize that DEVGRU-P loves to make fun out of everything there is.

The protagonist, in turn does like the two girls (although he has no problems teasing them), and wonders if he could (or even should) help them escape. Taking place over a week or so, the protagonist and the girls visit various places around North Korea (including the USS Pueblo), which is historically interesting for it’s own sake.

“Stay! Stay!” is a nice mix of awesome graphics, designs, music, humor, sexy babes and dead serious topics.

The end of the holiday culminates in a mountain holiday resort and an unwanted meeting with a drunk and randy fellow guest, who takes an immediate shine to your two companions…And it is soon after this that you find out what yours and the girls fate is : Tied to a post and shot or escape to a “better” place.

It’s a darn shame that DEVGRU-P didn’t add more lewd content to “Stay! Stay!”, because that would have made the game even better. Furthermore, the game is rather short as well. I mean, sure, there are four different endings in the game. Even so, the game is way too short for its own good.

So, what about the visual aspects of the game then? Well, “Stay! Stay’s graphics (especially the backgrounds) are very nice, with quite a bit of detail and the title/ending music is great. How accurate the information given in the game is, I don’t know, and no doubt a fair of imagination has been used for various parts, but it certainly doesn’t detract from the overall story.

There is very little in the way of lewd content to be found in “Stay! Stay!” – aside from an accidental grope in a shower, and the result of your choices, all parties keep some sort of clothing on all the time. Nevertheless, “Stay! Stay!” is with no doubt a really sexy, funny and dead serious dating sim/visual novel. So if you’re into games of this kind, then don’t miss out on “Stay! Stay!”.

Pros:
+ Very funny in parts, but can also be pretty serious too
+ Not afraid to comment on American attitudes and knowledge of North Korea, visual novel writers, artists, North Korea and mobile phone manufacturers
+ The title/end music is great, and the graphics are very nice

Cons:
–  The game is rather short
– There are very few static lewd scenes, but they are uncensored
– Stay! Stay! Only offers four different endings, and the only real reason to replay the game would be to see all of them

Gameplay: 4/5
Graphics: 4/5
Sound and music: 4/5
Controls: 4/5
Replay value: 3/5
Story: 4/5

tgg grade 4 out of 5

Verdict: 4/5
Stay! Stay! is both very funny and at times deadly serious (one of the nightmares the protagonist has is pretty nasty). You see, “Stay! Stay!” is a game that pokes fun at many different things : North Korea, America, the visual novel genre and graphic artists. It may be short, and the information (and some graphics) may be inaccurate, but it doesn’t detract from a fairly thought-provoking visual novel.
