Hi! This is Cafe. You probably don’t know me. I don’t want to talk too much about the general game info ’cause you can read all that stuff on its page already.
This was my first project for MangaGamer and I think it turned out pretty well. I didn’t know I’d be working on a Lilith game when I first got the job. I was just as surprised as you all likely were when MG announced they had acquired titles from Lilith at last year’s Anime Expo. It was shortly after that that I began work on Iris.
This is a nukige through and through, but there is some semblance of a plot here with a real conclusion. It might be twisted, but it’s there, and mildly amusing. I came to really like Iris, the lead, not just because she’s hot, but she’s a fun character in her own right. The game can come off as silly at times, but it breaks up the dark nature of it.
Surprisingly, there are references to a few sci-fi staples, so readers familiar with those works should notice this. I’ll hold off on saying which to prevent spoiling the surprise. There’s a chance I missed some references in translation, but I did try to be thorough with my research.
The h-scenes are divided in to three categories: sex with humanoids, aliens, or body modification. The body mod stuff is the least prominent of the bunch, but there are still a number of scenes featuring it. I think my favorite scenes are the yuri ones, though. Yes, it has yuri, too.
Do note that the game is told entirely from Iris’ perspective. This includes h-scenes. Some people love this stuff (like myself), but others might be turned off from not having your typical self-insert male protagonist. I think everyone interested in the title or Lilith’s games in general should still give it a chance. There is still a lot to enjoy here, and it isn’t entirely rape. But, there is plenty of that, if that’s what you’re here for.
