Karryn’s Prison v0.5q by Remtairy is a 2D JRPG set in a notoriously lenient prison where a riot has just taken place. You play as the titular character, Karryn, the new female Chief Warden whose job is to subjugate the inmates and guards, with the alternative being becoming progressively unable to resist their sexual advances, until she is instead subjugated by them.
We All Play These for the Story
In all honesty, the writing in this game is painfully cliché. The premise could have come from any basic porn from the last 30 years. Outrageously curvaceous Karryn is the newly appointed warden in the most sexually charged prison to ever be conceived. A riot has recently broken out and it’s her job to keep order by beating both prisoners and her own subordinates into submission or failing to do so and falling victim to their intensely aggressive sexual advances.
This along with the faceless characters, the shockingly bland dialogue options, the 2 styles of encounters comprised of 3 positions sell the feeling that this is a sex game built around an isometric dungeon crawler. The two sides of this are not of equal weight as the dungeon crawler aspect, thanks to its skill tree style “edict system”, is far more fleshed out than the adult aspect, which is lacklustre at best.
The Edicts system is a reskinned RPG style skill tree which controls the general state of the prison. It involves meticulously managing resources in order to improve the state of the installation and increase the overall level of control that Karryn can exercise. However, the upgrade tree does not follow a straightforward path of making Karryn stronger relative to the other guards and inmates as the system is upgraded. On the contrary, many of the initial options add debuffs to Karryn’s stats, making it more difficult to get to the final upgrades. Which in its own way, makes a certain level of sense as the game still becomes more difficult with time; satisfying the players need for a challenge.
The system is crafted to encourage players to engage with the games own mechanics for replay value. However, there does not seem to be any particular reward to losing that players do not already have access to while playing. Being awarded titles, which add certain buffs and debuffs to Karryn’s stats once a run is completed, definitely add to the overall replay value, but I did not find them to be a sufficient reward for finishing the game.
A Double Scoop of Vanilla
Karryn's Prison lacks range in its adult themes in general. It very much felt like the same sex with nearly identical enemies, that along with the lack of value attributed to those sections lead the game to quickly become repetitive. The title is shallow compared to games like Liliths Throne, a title that encouraged sexual diversity and representational freedoms, something I found helped replay value.
The pinging sound when selecting options in any of the menus is jarring and quickly gets difficult to listen to. The music is fairly varied; comparing exploration music to battle music, but it is incredibly reminiscent of standard JRPGs and is in no way particularly interesting or memorable.
The bland adult content is overshadowed greatly by the aggressive means in which it is acquired making it blatantly apparent that this is not a game about sex, it’s about power. If that is what you’re after in your isometric JRPGs, then Karryns Prison is your one stop shop for that specific fantasy.
- Interesting take on the JRPG genre with an erotic twist
- The Edicts system makes for interesting and diverse gameplay options
- Repetitive gameplay
- Uninspired artwork
- Annoying sound design

Karryn's Prison is a lewd RPG and one of the toughest I have ever played! To be fair, this is by design as this game is not intended to be played casually where you just pay the least bit of attention and go from sex scene to sex scene. This is a game that demands your attention and requires you to get really invested in what is going on and feel like you have some real control over your heroine. This is a very dense game, but I want to try and give you a good idea of what you can expect here.
The Inmates Are Running The Asylum!
The whole premise of Karryn's Prison is something that I find very interesting. Karryn is a prison guard at this pretty wild, crazy, and messed up corrections facility. Something has gone down here and the prisoners have rioted and now Karryn has found herself in the middle of it all and these prisoners are out for blood…. And some action if you know what I am saying.
0 to 6, But Not In 3.5!
I am sure that if you have played a lewd game before, you have probably played one like Karryn's Prison where the main character goes from virgin to being a sex maniac willing to do and try anything. That is kind of what we have going on here, but there is a bit of a twist. This is a really slow burn and if you are expecting to see her get banged every which way possible in the first five minutes, you have come to the wrong place. Karryn embracing or being forced to have sex is going to happen, but it happens at a slower more natural pace.
As far as the actual gameplay of Karryn's Prison goes this at a glance looks like a classic top down RPG style of game and it kind of is. However, when I say that this game is hard, I am not messing around. You will die and fail a great deal in this game, but that is by design. The game demands that you get good at it, find the right items, get stronger, get better in battles, and so on. The battle system may seem like every other lewd battle system you have encountered that is turn based, but it actually has way more depth and is incredibly challenging.
What Big… Eyes You Have
I think that a huge reason as to why I stuck with Karryn's Prison even though it was kicking my ass was Karryn herself. She is very attractive and while the game has that typical top down lewd RPG style for the gameplay. We get these big portraits of her and the XXX content that looks fantastic. The artist who brought her to life did one hell of a job on her and she is one of the hottest protagonists I have seen in a lewd game in quite some time. I think that making her so attractive was a good call as it makes you want to get better at the game.
I think that calling Karryn's Prison a lewd Souls like game is very fitting. The reason I say that is because this is a game that some people will love. Those people will love how the game is a slow burn, how it is difficult, and how it does not hold their hands. However, on the flip side of this, those who do not like a game to be brutally difficult and something they have to dedicate a ton of time to may not be won over by this and find it more frustrating than fun.
- I loved Karryn as the main character
- It did not hurt the game that Karryn was super hot with giant boobs!
- This is one of the most challenging lewd games I have ever played!
- The whole game has a very “Souls” like vibe about it
- The challenge can be pretty brutal and will probably be off-putting for some players
- This is not the game for you if you want to see chicks getting banged in the first five minutes!
