At one point or another, we all encounter strange and unsettling times in our lives and have to navigate them with as much care and caution as we can. This might require a change of job, a change of perspective or a change of scenery. The latter is true for the protagonist that you control in Double Homework as he moves in with two women after a troubling time in his life to set things back on track again.
What strikes you immediately when you start this game is the absolutely astounding visuals on offer throughout the game’s campaign. The facial structures, amazing eye detail, impeccable textures and lighting and environments all culminate to offer an overall presentation that is worthy of any major game on the market. In some instances, the images on show are hard to distinguish from reality which is a really impressive feat.
Double Homework has a narrative that you can see a mile away. You live with two hot girls and you’ll get to know each and then have to choose between them or try and conjure up a threesome agreement of some sorts. It’s a typical teenage drama with lots of sex and mischief thrown in for good measure. While the writing isn’t anything that will set the world alight, its good enough to carry the subject matter along nicely. You’ll probably find enough reason to push on until the end of this one but if you’re looking for Something that will capture your imagination, you’ll have to look elsewhere
The one saving grace is that there are a set of multiple endings that allow the player to choose their own destiny in some respects. Plus the characters do have plot lines that intersect nicely in some areas. As we said, the writing is far from poor, just predictable.
Harsh load times
The gameplay is your standard dialogue-heavy choice game and dating simulator, nothing an avid adult game connoisseur won’t have encountered many times before. However, the main drag back of this one is the ludicrous load times. The engine with the very demanding 3D renderings causes the game to slow down drastically and means that whatever momentum that the story picks up is soon lost as you twiddle your thumbs waiting for the next scene or task to complete.
A passive experience
The game just seems to pass you by in a way. You can throw yourself into it, put yourself at its mercy and it simply will stand motionless and do the bare minimum. It’s going through the motions in the form of an adult game and anyone that likes to be intimate from time to time knows that going through the motions simply won’t do.
- The graphics are a saving grace for this one as they are realistic and almost flawless in their execution.
- The writing is cohesive and serves its purpose and most of the characters are likable at the very least.
- It just seems like a game that couldn’t get the traction it needed to be a great addition to the adult games roster.
- This game is still receiving episodic updates so you can always hold out hope for a big change but at this moment, its average at best.
