The Dark Lord Rises is adult fantasy game created with RPG Maker. As a Renan, young boy with magical talent you'll explore story in realm attacked by The Evil One - legendary existence threatening peace and order in whole human world.
Sounds like typical fantasy story, right? Well, it should! The story is just pretext to orgy of sex and corruption that will ensue because of player action. However, it is not supposed to be "take the bad guy and rape every girl" story. My philosophy is that good corruption/mind control stories need time and attachment to characters to fully work. With The Dark Lord Rises I take things slow and steady. In fact, as of current version the main hero is still from being some sort of devilish corrupter.
Renan of Cern - main character of the game, young, bright boy from small village who finds himself enrolled in Magical Academy of Avonlica. What he doesn't know is that fate has something great stored for him.
Rowena of Cern - Renan's childhood nemesis. Orphan who becomes priestess around same time Renan is enrolled in Academy in Avonlica.
Rudeus Alba - experienced mage and teacher in Academy
Leonette d'Avonlica - Renan's classmate. Pompous daughter of duke d'Avonlica.
Chloe - Renan's classmate. Weird girl who wants to make many friends.
Lynn - Renan's classmate. Level-headed boy who wants to become a proper farmer.
Blas - Renan's classmate. Airhead with knack for wind magic.
Celeste - Renan's classmate. Smartest girl in class, who also has many secrets.
Tancred - Renan's classmate. Creepy guy with weird "friends".
Laeticia - ancient succubus who awoke from her slumber... and now threatens peace in Avonlica.
...and many, many others.
Awesome game! Really enjoyed this. While a little slow to start once the pacing picks up a little I enjoyed every moment.
This is an RPG-Maker game done right. The story is great and contains the right amount of combat!. That said there is still some bugs to be found throughout the game but nothing serious. Things like sometimes being able to walk up cliffs or on walls and an NPC or the PC saying something out of order, stating knowledge they would gain in the next minute or so. Probably the very next conversation. Like I said, nothing serious and I only noticed it a few(Maybe 3-4) times each and it didn't detract from my enjoyment at all. As such imo the authors time is better spent working on any future content! :D Also most of the humor is geniunely funny and aimed at rpg fans.
With the most recent update, the PC has some decent character growth both mental and physical and for my own kinks its going in the right direction.
This game is definitely an X rating and not an XXX or even XX rating game. While the erotic content is there and well done it is spread fairly thinly over the game so far. As the author mentions however it is 'slow corruption' which inevitably means more later on and I completely agree that the best corruption takes time and attachment to the characters. I'm hoping for more in the future.
Overall a damn good game and one with a lot of content. Highly recommended and I really hope work continues on it but even in its current state well worth playing and a big thank you! to the author for all the time, effort and sharing!
I need some help because im stuck at the part where reina is trapped in the dorm room and it says to find a way to pass the day. Is anyone able to help me please?
Great little game! Some writing errors. The corruption is nice and slow and fun! It doesn't always make sense from the main character's prespective, but it's fun! Overall the story keeps you in it. I want more! More power! I really hope you keep going, and go big! I'm a fan of big choices! And then keep going after that. :D
But.... I'm not sure if I'm stuck, at the end of content, or if theres a bug. I'm supposed to be "passing the time away", I go to study but it says "talk to Gilhaz", I go to do that but it tells me, "I've had enough of Gilhazpeak...". Can someone help?
It starts off like a gentle fluffy breeze... and then gets really really dark in the most awesome of ways. Then.. does it get light again? We shall see! Really really enjoyed what's there, played for about 12 hours total.
Could benefit from editing and the text-scroll sex scenes aren't my preference, but the rest of the game was solid enough that I'm excited to see what comes next. Hoping some of my favorite characters will return, character development worked well for me!
In my opinion...
The writing, though there are some errors, is really immersive and enjoyable. I really enjoyed it. The characters are likeable and interesting and it's easy to begin to care about them. The story is quite entertaining too even though it's a little bit linear.
But.. the gameplay is a whole different story. I understand that there has to be a level of difficulty. But the difficulty gaps are massive and the 'difficulty' this game is trying to force is starving you out of resting points and resources. Combat itself isn't hard. It's just that you're utterly starved of decent recuperation.
In my opinion the game would be much more enjoyable if the (imo) imbalance in combat and the starvation of PCs was looked at and maybe fixed. It's the only thing I did not like about this game.
