Join the dark side of space; I welcome you to Armored Warrior Iris, a Sci-fi themed dark erotic VN.
Iris is the member of a 101 special unit of Armored troops, belonging to the federal army SSF. Along with her partner Mei Li they form a powerful team in the fight against a galaxy-wide human trafficking ring. They share a strong bond, but after things turn bad during a mission for Iris and her partner, Iris ends up captured by an Orc then taken to be sold at auction in Dark Town. Bought by the criminal leader of this town, Bozuk, to serve as a prostitute at his mansion for a host of different species, she soon has to please criminals she once pursued.
Can she escape Bozuk’s mansion? Will she ever find her partner who went MIA?
This is a brief intro to the story, but you are likely here for the sex and this game serves that with a variety of flavor and is one of the key components into my enjoyment of this game, along with the lovely uncensored art work and character design from the artist ZOL. The game has sexy voice acting and a total of five different endings based on your choices. This being a Black Lilith title, you can expect very extreme, dark, and disturbing sex scenes and I would not want it any other way.
Iris gets to choose who she wants to serve as a prostitute at each choice, and you have three main options: Humans, Aliens, and body modified. With the humans you get your standard cosplay sex to gang bangs, as expected of any ero game. The aliens route is dependent on species, where stuff gets unique and very perverted from weird double dick monsters to strange giant sperm species and tentacle welding life-forms. I loved the variety of sex presented from these out-of-this-world creatures and their unique sexual methods. Finally the body modifying route is also another reason I enjoyed the erotic scenes in this game. Iris’ body gets transformed to suit the customer’s request–from big boobs one scene to a lolicon the next to even my personal favorite fetish, pregnancy. Her body gets manipulated for the customer’s desire. This variety made the game very appealing as I could pick and choose a scene to suit a mood I was in, giving the erotic scenes and bit more replay value due to the variety. I only found one or two scenes not to my enjoyment.
The story had enough intriguing elements to keep me interested in how Iris would fare, while pushing the erotic content along nicely. Iris hates being forced into prostitution and slavery at first, but her perverted inner desire awakens throughout the story. This plot device, while very typical of these sort of games, is well crafted into the story, and the concept of Iris escaping Bozuk’s mansion, all while trying to find her partner Mei Li without giving in to her slowly overwhelming sexual desire felt intriguing to read. I also really enjoyed the voice actress, Kasuga Anne (春日アン), and felt she added extra depth to Iris. How she could portray Iris as a strong-willed, determined character to a lust-filled slut or unwilling partner came across well in the various scenes throughout the game.
Overall I enjoyed this game for its high amount of dark erotic content and sexual variety while keeping an intriguing story. I would obviously recommend this for fans of darker erotic content who enjoy a varied variety of fetishes. Hopefully we will see some more Lilith games announced later this year. I know I can think of another sci-fi themed trilogy of games I would love to see MangaGamer announce.
