One of the most interesting things about Summertime Saga is the fact that this is a game that was made possible by a Patreon set up. It is impressive that there were a group of folks so hungry for this kind of game that they were willing to pump up the cash to make it happen. As far as erotic visual novel style games go, Summertime Saga is gaining a ton of notoriety in this rather niche genre.
Sex, Myster, And Murder
What really makes this game stand out for me is the premise. The game is set in a rather small and at first unassuming town. A young man is shocked that his father has died in a very suspicious and violent way. He sets out to find out why those responsible did what they did all the while trying to live his life and find love. I know that the premise sounds super weird, but it is without a doubt one of the more interesting visual novel style game plots that I have encountered. While there is a ton of sex in this game and talking with girls is a huge part of it. You also have the dealings with your father’s death. Not just in the death itself, but the way you feel about it.
A Whole Lot To Do
Please keep in mind that as I write this not all of the features are fully realized in Summertime Saga just yet. Anyway, while you will have to chat to a lot of people (it is estimated there will be over 50 characters to interact with) there are also mini-games, stat improvements and many choices that you will have to make. It even has an inventory system which I feel is quite unique for a game of this style.
There are main plot quests that you need to get through in order to get to the end of the story. However, that is really just the tip of the iceberg for what Summertime Saga is offering you.
The actual sex that is on offer in this game is not for the faint of heart. While I have not seen all that it has to offer. On the official page they talk about every kind of sex you can imagine as being part of the game. that is quite impressive and it is also something that is sure to keep the game from getting boring quickly as some other erotic visual novel games can.
In all honesty, it is still early days as far as the development of Summertime Saga goes. However, what is here already is the bones for a very fun and hot visual novel game. I am actually quite impressed with the story that is trying to be told here. There are not many games of this style that manage to mix a murder in with all the hardcore sex action. If you like erotic games and visual novel-style games, I highly suggest that you check this one out and follow it as it develops.
