Summer Fling is an erotic game and a visual novel style game that is actually quite popular. If you like your games to not just be “sexy” but also have a story that has some heart and humor. Well, you very may have just found the right game for you in Summer Fling.
The first that that is worth mentioning about Summer Fling is the character you play as. Summer Fling is one of the only erotic games that I can think of where you get to name the main character you play as. This may not sound like much, but it is kind of cool and a feature I think more games could make use of. The game is about you and your two friends from high school, Yuuki and Saeki. You guys are staying at your parent’s lake house so that you can have one last bit of fun before you head off to university. It is a pretty cliché kind of story for a visual novel style game, but it is also pretty fun. You have “relationships” and fun and you even get to shape the way the story comes to an end which is pretty cool.
Like many other erotic games, Summer Fling is going to a somewhat anime, manga kind of vibe. The characters have very overexaggerated features if you know what I am saying! They do have a cuteness about them and in all, I do like the character designs. There is a CG viewer so you can get a closer look if you know what I mean! The different locations that you can go to are not quite as well done as the characters in my opinion. They are not bad or anything like that, I just feel that they could have had a bit more going on. To be fair this is a lake house in a sleepy town so that could be why they decide not to have too much hustle and bustle going on in this little town.
Summer Fling is a visual novel kind of erotic game and it does what it does very well. Of course, as is the case with other games in this genre, the story is going to be what makes or breaks the experience for you. I actually enjoyed the story and found the main protagonist to be interesting and of course, her two high school friends (especially Saeki) were pretty awesome too. You will chat with various people and try to make relationships with them. The choices you make as you play the game will move the story along and ultimately decide what kind of ending you get. I played twice and got a different ending both times by changing around a few things here and there.
Final Thoughts On Summer Fling
I do not think that anyone is ever going to accuse Summer Fling of being the biggest erotic game ever made as it is a bit on the short side. Still, I found the story not just very sexy, but also fun too. It has rather witty writing and I did enjoy being able to actually name the main character.
