Groundhog day and infinite time loop narratives are very much in vogue within the gaming community. Once a trope only used by indie games, this genre of title has recently found its way to the mainstream AAA bracket, allowing players to play the same day over and over again in the best way possible. However, for those that enjoy something a little more X-rated, you might want to get yourself acquainted with the eroge genres frontrunner, Lust Theory.
This game plays like games such as The Outer Wilds or Deathloop in terms of premise. However, in terms of gameplay, this one is much more similar to titles such as House Party, Being A DIK, Sisterly Lust, College Kings and City Of Broken Dreamers. This game aims to offer a never ending loop of non-stop sexy fun, but will we want to break free of this loop? We find out in our review of Lust Theory, season one.
Quite the Hypothesis
Let’s start with what this game does well. In terms of visual splendour, this game knocks things out of the park. The character models, environments, scenes, animations and overall graphic detail is superb. Allowing fans of this type of game to fully immerse themselves in this world. You’ll have a full POV experience as you aim to seduce and captivate the characters of this game with your charm and sexy features and it looks great when you do.
Another great thing is a lot of the more tame fetishes are covered here. So if you like anal play, feet or anything in this wheelhouse, the game accommodates for this. However, outside of the great x-rated scenes, there is little substance to the actual gameplay, which means the overall quality hinges on the narrative here.
Sadly, the narrative doesn’t lean into the core premise enough. The story is a very shallow one that plays out like a cookie-cutter, dime a dozen dating simulator. The game could have went much bigger with the time loop gimmick but instead settles for mediocrity in terms of storytelling. So if you want substance with your smut, you will feel short changed here.
Overall, for the generic but well handled storyline and writing, as well as the superb visuals, we have to score this game above average. However, with that being said, there isn’t much more to be praised here.
There is next to no replay value, no gameplay to speak of and the core concept could have been fleshed out so much more. We can only hope that season two picks up on the flaws and fine tunes the formula.
- Great visuals
- Decent writing
- No gameplay to speak of
- Plays like a run of the mill dating sim
