You Said I’d Be Quarantined and That I’d Be Fine… [To Trust an Incubus BL Game Review]

EgAIuq

(Itch.io|Steam|Ypress.com|Twitter)

Kenta, a temp worker, gets a job in a lab that’s holding four muscly incubi aliens in quarantine. They came through Professor Raiden’s interdimensional portal like several other beings who visited Japan before them.

Past interdimensional visitors have warned Professor Raiden about aliens that look just like these ones. They might be ravagers who are scouting Earth to plunder it.

The top linguist working for the lab can barely communicate with the incubi. He’s figured out they need to bond with someone in order to learn their language. Will Kenta be the one to bond with the incubi? And if so, will he be able to figure out if they’re the evil ravagers or some other benign race?

Will the incubi stay in our world? Will Kenta get a permanent job? Make the right choices to get happily-ever-afters for everyone’s endings, or the wrong choices for some magnificently effed-up endings.  Sexually explicit art is censored with chibi stickers. There is an off-site patch to remove the censoring for the full game.

☆○o。 Our hero is a pretty typical fluffy boy who immediately seems to get drawn into bad situations. While there’s an impression that something bad happened at his previous permanent job, Kenta doesn’t seem to mean anyone harm. In fact, he’s quite innocent until he meets the Incubuses in the laboratory. 。o○☆

☆○o。 Okay big guy, I can tell you’re the leader but you definitely have the alpha vibe radiating off you to the point that Kenta looked like he was about to faint. Vald is an interesting character, his golden eyes are intriguing to me and I’m glad he isn’t an oresama-type. 。o○☆

☆○o。 YOU. ARE. ADORABLE. Like what even, hahaha! Saji has a gentler voice and reminds me of the more passive and timid type of uke (bottom). He was very adorable and I really liked the interaction I had with him and Kenta. However, I’m pretty sure he’s a wild one... 。o○☆

☆○o。 Of course we have to have one dom-type in here, and Harsi actually scares me more than intrigues me. He has an animalistic energy that rubbed me the wrong way, and I didn’t appreciate how he came onto Kenta. It was a bit much for me, and I don’t think he’s for me... 。o○☆

GRAY’S FIRST IMPRESSION

☆○o。 Why is there always a flirty-type? Or someone who using ‘darling’ and ‘honey’ a bit too often that the sweet words turn into a toothache at the end ofthe first dialogue with them? Devi, from the get go, you recognize he’s a flirt and pretty lascivious, while I can appreciate the eye-candy, I don’t feel he and I will get along too well. 。o○☆

☆○o。 Well… I love me some megane men but I think you terribly are in need of a good massage and some sexy time, Arata. When we meet him, he makes it a bit obvious that he has a thing for Dr, Raiden, and he blushes profoundly at the mention of his mentor’s name. Albeit, that’s all we get, because if you’re not talking about his sexy professor, he rather not be around you at all. 。o○☆

GRAY’S FIRST IMPRESSION

☆○o。 So, this is our infamous boss who hired us to work with the incubuses who came through the portal. He’s fairly good looking for a man in his 50s, and he can be very short with you about things. However, he does have his moments of hilarity when he shows his aggravation towards the aliens in the quarantine zone. 。o○☆

GRAY’S FIRST IMPRESSION

☆○o。 Well, we met her with a pretty bad impression, but it was understandable since she was trying to get press off the property. Chiyoko seems career oriented and wants to be the head of the laboratory pretty badly. However, I feel the way she presents herself is a bit much for someone who is eyeballing the head director position. 。o○☆

☆○o。 I’m glad the save screen looks this nice and clean, I’m also pretty happy that it has a furturistic tone on it. Another thing I appreciate is that it shows a ‘snapshot’ photo of your save versus a timestamp. 。o○☆

☆○o。 Standard ‘choose your own adventure’ option and point and click features, and it wasn’t difficult to navigate with the utility icons on the bottom right corner. I prefer when game choices are centered like this and that the tool bar is off to the side but isn’t occluding the entire game screen. 。o○☆

First of all, I love the clean lines and the graphics of this game, the narrative bar was easy to read without me having to manipulate it to be brighter or darker. I also love how beautifully rendered the artwork is as the cherry blossoms in the back to the signage on the other side are well done. The icon bar on the right also was an interesting look at the game’s play through as it wasn’t something that bothered me while I played. Usually, I have a problem with games that have bright and colorful toolbars/utility icons as it’ll distract me from the gameplay because my eyes will get drawn to it from my peripherals.

In this case, I didn’t have any difficulty and I totally liked the layout, it reminded me of Quantum Suicide’s similar look.

My first day at my new job didn’t go as planned, considering Kenta wanted to make a good impression on Dr. Raiden, however… That didn’t go so well from his point of view versus Dr. Raiden’s view. I basically walked in with high hopes and the drive to be able to become invaluable personnel for the laboratory only to be hit with the HORNY BUTTON. You read that right, I got slapped with the HORNY BUTTON, thanks to the aliens residing in the facility and their UNIQUE abilities to trigger sexual desire.

Thankfully, I was able to pursue the option to ‘relieve‘ myself from the painful rise I had in my pants and get back to work. It would have been thoughtful if the doctor explained that the incubuses usually slapped us with the horny button as a way of saying, ‘Hello! Welcome to Butt Probingville, get in-We’re Gonna Do Butt Stuff!’ Anyways, I digress, as after the doctor almost has a bit of a meltdown in front of us about his aggravations towards these sentient beings, we meet a carousel of colorful characters.

While the interactions with the LI were pretty… Unique, I had a very rounding suspicion with how all this was gonna play out once Kenta started to go and do his actual work of cleaning the rooms and such.

Devi wasted no time on his run of things to corner Kenta and pretty much try to seduce the hell outta him. We were pretty lucky that Arata had been watching to sound the alarm to stop the whole thing from going nutso, and I was more than happy that Kenta had put his foot down with Devi about touching him–However, that doesn’t work out well for long…

Hello there, big fella INDEED. I had thought that Vald would be the more gentleman type but I was severely wrong when he managed to corner Kenta and make him lose his mind. I nearly wanted to slap Kenta for falling in too easily to the temptation and not even bothering to fight back, not even just a little.

Saji was actually the only one who captured my heart in the game, his quiet and sincere persona really put a dent in both mine and Kenta’s hearts. As there is a sadness that seems to radiate from him which is what draws us to him in the first place, while we did get a kiss from him, the moment is short-lived thanks to Arata.

Usually, I’m okay with kabedons when they are done in a manner that does make my heart go DOKIDOKI, but Harsi literally scares the crap outta me. So being cornered by him, I was pretty peeved that Kenta didn’t try screaming or doing a ‘slip’ move to get out of the awkward position.

After playing through everyone’s semi-introductory moments, I’ve determined that Kenta is practically going to follow his instincts and just allow his butt to get invaded by the love interest here. LMAO. I’m not sorry, truth be told with the narrative being written the way it was to how fast we were moving, I already knew this was going to be one of those novels that you either really love because it reminds you of trash tv that you know isn’t good for you but you binge it anyway, or it’s going to be a visual novel that you absolutely adore because the story and characters bring something intricate to the table and you place the game on a pedestal.

☆.。.:* EXPLICIT SCENES WITH THE ALIENS .。.:*☆

Now, these aren’t as explicit, but I’m not about to parade dick pics all over the blog, you’ll have to play the game to get those scenes. I will admit that the sexy times in this game are well-drawn, and the narrative is very much akin to something straight out of an erotica book. I appreciated the well-created words and verbal imagery to enhance the whole game play, but I wasn’t very fond of the voice acting this time around for this game. The actual dialogues between the characters and the sex scenes moments were very cringe-worthy.

I do feel they could have had a more successful game without the voice acting is as bad as it was, as both Chiyoko and Arata’s VA’s sounded so stiff and unnatural. It was pretty hard to chew through when I was going through the motions of all the scenes with the characters, it came to a point I just turned off the VA altogether.

However, above all else, the sex scenes were done well, and if you just turn off the VA and let the narrative take you–you can imagine better voicing.

The game has an interesting premise and I do like the idea that we have a bara concept versus the usual softer look I’m used to seeing with Yaoi BxB games. I wasn’t so fond that Kenta is a complete pushover with the characters and is easily swayed, and I know some can say it’s because the men have powers of seduction and such. However, while that may be the case, giving Kenta an advantage that he’s not affected by their charms would have been a good approach–and that he can actually push the characters away rather than be cornered.

One thing I am certain of, the game is good without the voices, I’m sorry, that’s just my preference and IMO it was a better play through for me to enjoy imagining what these guys should sound like. I have a mass appreciation for the detailing and artwork provided in the backgrounds and the characters themselves, but as the narratives progressed I felt I was reading junk erotica books LMAO. Not saying it’s a bad thing, but if you’re looking for a game with some fast, hot, and heavy sex with lots of tropes. This game is definitely a must to have in your arsenal of BL Games to have in your collection.
