Being a DIK
As TV shows got more and more popular, and streaming services appeared, it seems like everything was becoming episodic. Even movies like the Marvel MCU feel like episodes from a bigger season. And of course, video games couldn't stay behind on this, and this includes video games for adult audiences. Being a DIK is a Visual Novel game that comes in episodes, and while it may not be a Telltale game, this visual novel is packing a lot. Also, it's available on steam, so you can safely and easily play it yourself. But before you go and buy the game, let's talk about it for a moment.
About the game
As mentioned before, Being a DIK is an episodic adult game in the genre of visual novels. You play a university student who just got in and it's basically just going through all the Hollywood university experience. And even though it's not realistic it features elements like tests, attending to classes and more.
It's still a pretty movie-like university experience where there are tons of parties, drinking, and sex. But there are interesting characters and interactions, and it's actually nicely written. You even end up being part of a fraternity called Delta Iota Kappas, that's where the name DIK comes from. That and the double sense humor referring to, well, explaining the joke kinda takes the fun out of it.
A more American take
You probably realized that most adult games like these are Japanese, or more "anime" themed. And that's where Being a DIK is different. The relationships are with more mature women than in most Japanese eroge where they are usually almost underage, if not underage.
The narrative and unlike games like Honey Select, you don't get to customize the women. And there's more story to the game itself. so they are different games made for different audiences after all. Even though there are big visual differences between the two of them, it's hard to compare them.
Being a DIK is a great game, not only is the story interesting and the minigames entertaining. But there's actually nice art and gameplay involved. The humor is actually funny and it's an overall enjoyable experience.
The sex encounters are great, pretty sexy and entertaining. And it even feels rewarding when you pass a test. Solo developer DrPinkCake did a great job developing this entire game all by itself. This romantic drama is a great game where your actions affect the story and development.
Graphics and visuals: The game features CG images with excellent quality models and some small animated sequences. There are plenty of these scenes and they all look great. The art is cool and the women are sexy, what else could you ask from this type of game?
Gameplay: It sucks to play a game where your choices don't matter at all, and that's not the case here. Your choices affect greatly your character's personality and the overcome of most events in the story. Get to know all the different characters and unlock different scenes.
Sound: The sound is alright, it's not excellent but when you think that this game was made by just one person it makes it better. Of course, it's not up to the same level as Tobyfox's soundtrack for Undertale, but it's still alright.
