Of all the weird shit that comes out of Japan, it was never gonna be long before someone discovered the Rift. “Yunalus” is the first we’ve heard from a major publisher though. I hesitate to call this porn, because there’s nothing obviously sexual, other than a bit of fan service panchira – but then I challenge you to find a Japanese game, movie or animation without at least some kind of fleeting upskirt.
Whilst many Rift owners are raving over the exciting possibilities, they fail to understand that the demo is made by one of the biggest hentai game publishers in Japan – Illusion.jp, whose previous topic matter includes abusing a girl and her mother on the train, and an incest simulator (you can’t make this shit up). It’s clearly alluding at something they’re working on for the Rift, and which no doubt involves doing naughty things to your babysitter. Cymatic Bruce recorded some gameplay footage for you, though there really isn’t anything to do other than walk around, and even then there’s no collision detection yet.
The demo consists of a nicely made one-room Japanese apartment, with curtains screening off the genkan. The player character is low down to the ground, and objects appear larger than normal, suggesting you’re playing from the perspective of a baby with a small IPD. This isn’t a new concept – Among The Sleep is a horror game about childhood experiences that’s announced Rift support. The room is cell-shaded in 3D anime style, but as someone who’s actually lived in these kind of apartments for a few years (they are literally all the same, right now to the off-the-shelf one-piece plastic bathroom), remarkably realistic. I’m just terrified of what kind of adult game could possibly be made from this…
Don’t even bother trying to find out more about Illusion unless you read Japanese – they are quite clear that they want absolutely nothing to do with us dirty gaijin, either because their games are just too perverse for our sensible governments, or more likely because they’re just fucking sick of reading English emails.
