CyberScherzoFF’s “The Little Black Bestiary” is an adult erotic visual novel about a demi-human called Tainara and her human friend. Long story short. Tainara is at college and after a long absence, she meets up with the protagonist.
Well, initially the idea was for them to meet and play video games. However, things change to a strip-game instead, played with an old combat ping-pong video game.
You see, Tainara is a connoisseur of old video games – with the combat ping-pong game peaking her interest. With the two people selecting players, the race is on to see who loses – and ends up naked first.
Anyways, I think you get the idea. As for the visual novel aspects of the game. Well, the visual novel section moves along at a steady pace, and fortunately enough for you (and me), it doesn’t take too before you meet Tainara (who is a sort of human/dolphin hybrid who has trouble finding suitable clothing).
The main part of the game could be regarded as the battle Pong game – which is like regular Pong but with rather laggy controls and extra enhancements.
You do get a chance to read the rather extensive instruction manual before your battle, but it’s not something that is really needed, as the controls are simple enough.
Even so, it’s worth pointing out that the input lag is annoying…On a positive note though, the developer does know about. So hopefully something can be done about it.
Why? Because it’s very hard to win against Tainara, even when cheating and in easy mode. However, even losing is worth it, though, as you’ll still end up with a nice sex scene.
Other than that. You have all the usual controls for a visual novel, but, being written in Unity, their usage isn’t quite as good as Ren’Py, with the skip function being the most obvious problem, although it’s certainly no real problem.
Furthermore, both character and background graphics are very nicely drawn, and the retro feel for the Pong game works well. So, in overall, “A Playful Proposition” is quite a slow-paced and gentle game, which would be well worth looking at.
Simply put, if you’re into monster girls, lewd content and visual novels. Then you should give “The Little Black Bestiary: A Playful Proposition” a fair chance with no doubt.
+ Very nice graphics.
+ The music is appropriate.
+ Interesting mini-games.

+ Tairara is a very sexy monster girl indeed.
– The mini-game controls are sluggish and are very hard to win.

Sound and music: 3/5
Replay value: 3/5
The Little Black Bestiary: A Playful Proposition is an interesting and pretty unique 18+ erotic visual novel. Why? Because A Playful Proposition offers an upgraded Pong mini-game and demi-human interactions.
So, yeah, it’s most definitely worth looking into if you’re into monster girls, erotic content and visual novels in general. Especially if the Pong game controls will be improved in the future.
