Venture Seas is one of those games that will undoubtedly satisfy a particular audience. At first glance, one would immediately identify that this is an adult visual novel made by a team of fans of the genre themselves. They don't seem to be looking for a quick buck here; it feels the developers are out to make a well-rounded erotic fiction game.
That notion is underlined because Venture Seas is still in early access since its 2020 release. But what else seems to drive this game as a more ambitious adult video game? Well, you'd think all the offensive content is there. However, there appears to be diversity in gameplay, customization, and an attempt to satisfy every adult player base. Venture Seas is simply something we need to investigate to find out more.
Sail the Sexy Seas
Let's try to pull together the somewhat esoteric storyline of Venture Seas. The premise is that you are a fantasy trade ship captain that's mulling around a mythical kingdom profiteering and spreading your erotic prowess around every port you land in. Sounds intriguing, right? The real oddity of the game comes around how gameplay is delivered.
Venture Seas is a cross between a classic visual novel, RPG, and puzzle/platformer. Weirdly, this wild mix of gameplay mechanics works because they are all bound by similar objectives and the same pace of urgency. While there's little in the way of animation (apart from the sex scenes and mini-games), the game somehow keeps you roped in.
And if you are there for the adult content, you can trust there's plenty of it around. Your entire ship crew is on some aphrodisiacs, constantly engaging in wild and kinky sex. But it's up to you to reign in control, so you become one of the most successful merchants in the kingdoms. Considering how horny this entire universe is, that task is not simple.
Venture Seas is surprisingly immersive for a game drive on fetishes and erotic content. Most games of this genre are questionable solely because they seem to offer very little in the way of a game. This title is surprisingly the opposite. Around the rewards of sex, there's a decent, playable video game that will keep you enticed.
An Opportunity in Every Port
So is Venture Seas any good? As much as it feels bizarre to say it considering the genre, yes, it is. The points to raise are that it still has those cringe-worthy storylines and visual novel graphics, and sometimes the gameplay feels like a mess. But as an adult erotic fiction game, it's surprising how much the title delivers.
Venture Seas is worth diving into if you're a fan of the adult genre or just a little curious. It trumps the genre's stereotypes by offering some decent and challenging gameplay around each lewd encounter. It's also infinitely better than infamous games like Lula 3D if that means anything to you. But alas, Venture Seas is worth a sail.
