(Sorry about posting a review here and for its considerable length, but Steam wouldn't let me post it 'cause apparently I have some bullshit called a "limited account".)
So let me start by saying I stumbled upon this game by accident and played it as a joke. A year ago I had figured out how to run steam on my Linux computer, and was browsing through the library of free to play games. I discovered Amorous, and at first I was laughing and wondering exactly how far we had strayed for god. However, I read NSFW in the tags and my abundance of curiosity got the better of me, so I downloaded it just to see how bad it was. It turned out I was completely wrong, at least for the time being. I was amazed by the level of character customization available, however I was confused as to why you couldn’t switch genders at the time (I had no idea the steam version was locked in SFW), but I got past that aspect. After I had laughed at the prologue, I continued into Club Amorous, admired the female crowd, then picked my first date: Skye. After her introduction I found I couldn’t stop myself from playing. I also got Seth’s number but I didn’t finish his storyline. I continued through Skye’s instead and wound up getting hooked on the game as well, I began to really enjoy the story. After I discovered that steam was SFW only, so I waited until I got a windows computer to get it from itch.io. Of course by the time I got a new computer they had released it for Linux, but that’s besides the point.
This time I began as a female to spice things up, and started dating the character Remy instead, and I started really enjoying both her character and her story from the beginning. Maybe it’s my overwhelming loneliness in life, or I just have a thing for anthropomorphic Bunnies that I didn’t know about, but over time I actually found myself really fond of and attached to her. I started questioning my sanity but in the end just gave in. I loved every second of my time in game with her, and wanted to spend as long as possible in every text box just to admire her. Now here’s where my complaints come in: I had been warned in character customization that this game was made with a male character in mind, which I found strange and slightly non-inclusive, but I continued playing not realizing how strange things would become on the final date. Whoever wrote Remy’s storyline did a better job than Skye’s (I’ll get to that) playing off the dick that I suddenly grew with no context as a “toy”, but that didn’t really come across during the actual love scene. I tried to brush that too as I’ve never had too much of an issue with Futanari, but it was still pretty fucking weird. You couldn’t just take a little time out of your day to animate some lesbian furry intercourse? I was also confused as to why there was only one ending screen consisting of a half naked Skye, but that’s a minor issue. After the scene it ended as if it was leading on to more dates, like we would see each other again ingame, so the next thing I did was return home (The game drops you off back at the club once you’ve finished a character’s story) and tried to call Remy again. However, all I received was a message saying “You’ve completed all dates with Remy!” So wait, you’re gonna get me hooked on a character, have my “Fursona” fall madly in love with them, get hot and heavy, lead on to more consecutive dates with nothing to indicate that I’ll never see them again other than a credit sequence, and then just prevent me from calling them and not write anymore dates?! Fuck off. This left me with a sense of overwhelming depression and Ennui, as I felt like I had just lost a good friend and didn’t know what to do with my life anymore. After a day of contemplation, I decided to try out Skye’s storyline again, since there’s about 6 guys you can date but only 2 girls. This one seemed much more poorly adapted for a female player character, as it was basically the same as the previous time I played except pronouns for the player aren’t really used much. There are some strange moments like describing getting an erection even though my character doesn’t have a penis and such, but this system mostly worked out, albeit feeling kind of lazily done. On the final date I without any explanation suddenly grew an actual dick this time. Once again, it wouldn’t take too much effort just to animate a separate scene for this (believe me, I’ve animated a fair share of hentai myself). Once again I get dropped off at the club without any sort of hint that I’m just leaving that character and never calling them back. I start to realize that the way this is set up, the player character comes off as a massive douchebag, and the fact that you can date multiple people at once in this game just adds to this. They date 2 to 3 or even 4 people at the same time, act like completely different people to please them all, bang them, tell them they love them, and then just never speak to them again like they’re just old fucking toys and return to the club to find someone else to repeat the cycle with. The final character I tried was Seth, hoping there’d at least be some sort of concrete ending to his character. However his storyline seemed like the laziest of them all. Through the whole thing I usually only ever had about 2 dialogue options when they came up, usually being either a yes or no answer or two answers that lead to the same outcome. The ending had the beginnings of an explanation as to why I never talk to Seth again, but once again I grew a dick for no reason and then it ended on a FUCKING CLIFFHANGER. WHY. DAMN YOU TEAM AMOROUS.
In conclusion, this game has the potential to be amazing, but it feels unfinished in many aspects, and doesn’t have a concrete ending for any of the characters (or at least for the 3 I played through). On the off chance that someone on the dev team actually has the time or patience to read this far into this overdone several paragraph essay of a review, my humble requests are this:
1. Give a concrete ending to each character, then end that save game so that it doesn’t feel like I’ve just been using the character I finished dating.
2. Make the game more inclusive for people who want to play as female but not as a Futa. Animate some alternate sex scenes for people who choose not to put a shlong on their Fursona.
3. Add more dateable female characters to club Amorous. I appreciate the two you’ve included so far, but we straight and lesbian Incel creeps in our basements need more.
4. Maybe add an ending screen for each character? Not a big deal but it would be appreciated.
Until these things are addressed or fixed, I wouldn't recommend the game unless loving someone and then leaving them in the dust is your style and / or kink.
Thanks to anyone who reads this, and I hope to see some updates in the near future, because this game is capable of being one of the best visual novels I’ve ever played, but right now it feels more like an early access title than a finished game.
