Right off the bat. For those who don’t know what “Oppaidius” is all about. Well, here’s a brief introduction to the series. SbargiSoft’s “Oppaidius Desert Island” is the third episode in the “Oppaidius” series of comedy/drama visual novels, and it works as a direct sequel to the previous episode (“Oppaidius: Tropical Cruise“).
And now that I’m done with the short introduction of the “Oppaidius” series, let’s jump straight into the current story events of “Oppaidius Desert Island” shall we?
As I was saying, after being shipwrecked in the last “Oppaidius” game, the protagonist ends up on a remote desert island with Angela.
However, things take a turn for the weird, as Angela’s talking boobs return, hallucinations become erotic, and the player ends up talking to “God”. To make matters worse, Angela and the protagonist may not be alone on the island.
Furthermore, whilst playing the previous episode is beneficial, there is a brief (and somewhat obtuse) recap of the story so far.
Simply put, if you have played the previous “Oppaidius” episodes, you’ll be immediately comfortable with the graphical style. I mean, nothing much has changed there, although there does seem to be more animations, as well as sex scenes. However, if you were hoping the experience an animated sex scene with Angela, then you’ll be disappointed, as it doesn’t happen…Well, at least not in the demo.
Well, I think you get the idea. So if you are new to the series, then it may take a while to get used to the 8-bit style of the backgrounds. To make up for it, all the characters are very nicely drawn, and where appropriate animate well (usually accompanied by sound effects too).
As for the game’s music and sound effects. Well, the music from the previous episode has been kept, which is good as all the tunes are great. I would also like to point out that choices are liberally scattered throughout the game. So there is no doubt in my mind that some of those choices will affect the ending of the game.
However, whilst the demo is substantial, there is no actual conclusion, so you won’t get to see what effects that they might have on the game as a whole.
Nevertheless…In Overall, “Oppaidius Desert Island” is shaping up to be a very good 18+ erotic visual novel, and the game would be of special interest for those who have played the previous episodes with no doubt.
So, all in all, as it stands now based on the current (latest) demo of “Oppaidius Desert Island”. The game is a very good and funny 18+ erotic drama/comedy VN that could become even better in the full version. So if you’re into erotic visual novels, then you should most definitely try the demo and keep your eyes on the “Oppaidius Desert Island” project.
+ The game’s humor is very funny, and it’s rather touching as well.
+ Animated sex scenes.
+ Lovely visuals and artworks.
+ Thick and sexy babes!
+ No censorship whatsoever!
+ Awesome game soundtrack by Luca Della Regina.
– The graphics style might takes some time to get used to.
– No skipping until the game has been completed (which isn’t a real problem though).
Sound and music: 4/5
Replay value: 4/5
“Oppaidius Desert Island” offers a very funny, sexy, and touching story, a story which no doubt got a lot more going for it than a simple story of someone who just can’t think about breast. So if you’re new to the “Oppaidius” series, it will pay to start off with the first episode, but if not, then this visual novel will no doubt be highly anticipated among fans/lovers of erotic visual novels.
It should be noted that I helped advise the developer with the English version.
