Monster Girl Hentai Game Roundup: Autumn 2014

While I was busy battling through Violated Hero 5 several other monster girl hentai games came out.  A quick search on dlsite.com came up with this list:


Succubus Maze


I checked this out a while back just before Violated Hero 5 came out.  It looked fairly simple from the demo.  Superficially it looks like another RPG-maker game, but rather than being a JRPG it looks to be more of a stealth game.  The character has to sneak or run past succubi before they grab hold of you.  If they get you (and it can be more than one at a time), an animated 3D H-scene is shown of the succubi doing nice-but-drainy things to you.  I wasn’t convinced on the artwork at first glance, but the animated scenes looked good enough in the demo to make me consider giving it a closer look.

Monsters ‘n Girls


It’s Ghouls ‘n Ghosts . . . with sexy monster girls.  Ghouls ‘n Ghosts was a classic arcade platform game and also well ‘ard.  This is very similar, right down to the level design.  It’s a pixel hentai game similar to Eroico or The Paradise Fortress of RePure Aria.  If the monster girls knock you down, you get a little animation of them doing the sexy to you.  In the demo I saw cat girls, slime girls, lamia and some kind of frog/kappa girl as a boss.  Looked fun, but if it plays anything like the game it’s homaging it might be tricky to get to the end.

Succubi Nocturne 1R: Seductress, Teats and Male Virgin


Battle fuck game.  Some poor sex-starved shmoe of a protagonist gets transported to a fantasy world where sexy monster girls take on the form of the girls that teased him at school.  The demo has a very long intro followed by a sex battle with some kind of plant girl.  The battle caught my attention as most of the separate attacks not only have their own CGs but also have some animation as well.  Artwork looks good as well.  I’ll probably give this one a closer look.

Inran Sekai Seduce


Another RPG-maker type game.  The art on the cover looks a little too loli-esque for my tastes.  I had a brief look at the demo.  It looked like a typical topdown hentai JRPG.  The fights seemed similar to The Fantasy World of Mindia—girls in various costumes, no Bad End scenes from normal mook battles.

MonMusu Hunter J


This is the 3rd in the MonMusu Hunter Series.  They all look like action games where you go out and capture monster girls and if you get them you’re rewarded with a pixel hentai scene.  I haven’t played any in the series.  I prefer sexy Bad Ends and these are more capture, subdue and rape games.  It’s good that there are monster girl hentai games to cater for people more on the D side of things, but the demo didn’t really do anything for me.

In the Castle of Succubi


Visual Novel (I’m guessing) from the same people that made House of Monster Girls.  I checked that game out back here.  That was 10 H-scenes with a lot (and I mean a lot!) of text in between.  This looks like more of the same.  if it’s anything like its predecessor the one thing it will have is the most ludicrously ginormous boobs possible.

Succubus Hunter 2: Escape the Lust Den


This is another series of games I’ve been meaning to check out (the developers have put out 4 succubus-themed RPGs) and haven’t got around to.  It looked interesting from the demo—a mixture of stealth/running away and sex battles.  You start off a prisoner and have to avoid both generic mooks and the three main monster girls (succubus, slime girl, cat girl).  The two Bad End scenes I saw looked juicy enough for me to consider taking a closer look.  The main problem I had was with text hooking.  Couldn’t pick up any of the dialogue at all with my usual AGTH + Translation Aggregator combination.  If anyone has played these games and knows a fix for this, let me know in the comments as I wouldn’t mind giving this series a closer look.


Any of these look like they might be fun to do a Let’s Play of?  I’m probably going to do a playthrough of Violated Hero 4: Another Story next week as I picked that up and never got around to checking it out before Violated Hero 5 appeared.  After that there’s likely a long wait before Monmusu Quest: Paradox comes out.  To fill in the gap I might check out some of the games above if there's enough interest.

The one game I will miss off is the follow-up to ROBF, ROBFS4U.  I liked the original and the demo for the follow-up looked very good, but the game won’t ever be available on the English dlsite and the developer has made it very clear they don’t want westerners playing their game (either because of fear of piracy or fear of getting unwelcome attention from the rabid SJW wingnuts currently infesting formerly safe online geek spaces).  Annoying, but the fair thing to do is respect their wishes.

Hydra's Inspiration - A Succubus for Christmas (part 3)

And the stories behind the stories for the remaining five tales from A Succubus for Christmas:


Wrapdance

The club and background comes from real life inspiration.  I was in Moscow and - after copious amounts of alcohol - found myself in a strip club where the girls gave out lap dances in a similar fashion to how they’re described here.  I changed the dancers to succubi and made the venue another Strip Club With A Dark Secret.  The real tension is the protagonist’s struggle between his body’s desire for primal pleasure and the mind’s desire to stay alive.  The story picked up an editor’s choice tag when it went up on Literotica.  This gave me a nice little ego boost at the time and made me think I was doing something right with my writing.


The Coils of Aenictia

This is another story inspired by artwork I’d seen on the internet.  This time it was of a lamia or slug-type monster girl engaged in unbirth.  I didn’t know that much about the vore fetish at the time.  The picture seemed sexy and it gave me an idea to give the protagonist a kind of twisted rebirth (to make a change from all the Sucked To A Withered Husk stories).  The planar catastrophe was another excuse to throw a clearly non-human monster girl into a contemporary setting.  Trying to think about how that catastrophe happened gave birth to hell-space, my goto setting for monster girls that aren’t an easy fit for a modern-day setting.


Squeezed

This was the second story I submitted to Literotica.  Succubi and similar monster girls are one interpretation of the highly seductive, sexually-dominant femme fatale.  Other classic examples come from super-hero comics (eg. Poison Ivy).  The character that eventually became Sister Squeeze was originally going to be in “The Embrace of Uvulu’ai” until I realised her bright and colourful powers were more suited to a comic book setting.  The story was also a fun opportunity to have a sideswipe at the so-called moral guardians who are less than moral themselves.


Happy Ending

The title is both a troll and an allusion to the euphemism of ‘Happy Ending’ (a sex act that gives a client an ejaculation at the end of a massage) used by massage parlours.  Erotic body-to-body massage given by a girl on top of an airbed is one of my favourite porn scenarios and I’ve used it a number of times in my stories (it’s also a lot of fun irl too ;) ).  It was a perfect opportunity to bring back Annette Brite and also add a sneaky reference back to “Bubble Bath” (yes, the stunning girl Clive walks past as he enters the shop is the succubus from “Bubble Bath”).  The troll part is an acknowledgement that most of my stories, while sexy, often don’t end well for the central characters.  The title reflects that irony.


Incall with a Succubus

And then the real happy ending.  I knew I couldn’t constantly write about ‘dude encounters sexy demon girl, demon girl sucks out his life/soul’ without it starting to get repetitive and/or people starting to wonder if I had some deep-seated psychological problems about sex.  Horror (and horror films specifically) doesn’t have a good track record here when the central message of most slasher flicks can be summed as thus:  Have Sex And You Will Die!!!

I needed a ‘nice’ succubus and along came Nicole.  All the sexy goodness with none of that icky death stuff.  Maybe.  I wanted to leave enough hints of darkness so the readers don’t forget what she is (and a little uncertainty makes the sex more thrilling).  Jack Newman is a politician because it was a realistic way of establishing Nicole’s credentials as an exclusive escort and also because I liked the irony of a politician, normally a despised profession - with good reason - in fiction, being the one to get the ‘happy ending’.

Hydra's Inspiration - A Succubus for Christmas (part 2)

Carrying on with where the inspiration came from for the stories from my first collection, A Succubus for Christmas.


Hookahed

This was the first story I submitted to Literotica.  It’s another old fantasy of mine.  For the early stories the plots were usually excuses to set up a twisted sex scene with hot demonesses.  Koontz’s unconventional appearance was inspired by news stories of a real life mob boss (think it might have been Vincent Gigante) walking around outside in nothing more than a bathrobe to make the authorities think he was crazy.  The idea of a mob boss with a harem of succubi at his command seemed too good not to use again, and so Koontz became another of my regular characters.


Pool of the Undine

Another story inspired by a monster girl picture I’d seen online, this time of a slime girl.  The weird cave out in the moors seemed like a nice location for her to hide.


Slayer vs. Succubus

This was intended as an affectionate subversion of the classic eighties action hero stereotype.  I love those films even though it’s obvious anyone behaving like that in real life would most likely fuck everything up epically.  Super virile action hero versus infernal mistress of temptation was never going to end well in my universe.  This is a story I’m torn on.  It’s fun, but it’s also very goofy.  Quite a few readers let me know they liked this one and I try to remind myself to write similar stories every so often to break up the flow of grimdark ones.


Arachne’s Web

This one is unique to this collection.  I’d wanted to do an Arachne story for a while, but unlike succubi, which are easy to hide in a modern-day setting, a demon with the lower body of a giant spider is a little more noticeable.  I made her a dream demon to get around this.  The non-sex part of the story was inspired by a real life (and tragic) news story of an otherwise successful Brit going on the run in the states after shooting his wife.

The writing of it is another story.  Selena Kitt spotted my work on Literotica and encouraged me to put a collection together for publication through eXcessica.  I knew it would crazy to expect people to pay for work that was already available for free online, so I decided to include at least one original story (ideally a novella) for the folks prepared to part with their cash.  That was this one and it ended up being a complete bitch to write.  I suspect this was because I knew I was writing something for publication rather than fun and some of those old niggling writer doubts about being good enough had resurfaced to fuck around with my productivity.

I hated the story at the time.  It was only when I came back later I saw how nicely the concepts and imagery (the way she ‘eats’ the memories of his past loves and replaces them with her) came together.  It’s my favourite of the collection.  It might make a decent horror film as well (hint hint, for anyone out there with experience of making such things).


I'll finish off with the last five stories on Friday.

Hydra's Inspiration - A Succubus for Christmas (part 1)

A couple of months back I wrote a post on examples of where I got my inspiration from.  I said I might expand on this for stories I'd already written and a few folk seemed interested.  Most horror collections include some musings by the author at the back as to where the stories came from.  I thought I'd copy that theme and run through the stories from my first collection, A Succubus for Christmas.

It's a behind-the-scenes look, so there might be a few spoilers if you haven't already read these stories.


A Succubus for Christmas

I wanted a Christmas-themed story to enter into one of Literotica’s online story competitions.  For a while I was struggling to think of a way to combine succubi and horror with holiday niceness, and then the little black cells vomited out this idea and it fell into my lap pretty much fully formed.  At the heart it’s the classic horror genie trope—character finds artefact containing wish-granting entity, gets good stuff . . . but what about the cost.


The Masterton Covenant

Another classic horror trope—old guy in a bar telling a tale of woe.  It’s one of the few stories I’ve written using first-person PoV.  I’m not a big fan of using it for horror as—found footage stories and obnoxious stylist tricks aside—it’s a fairly glaring tip off the protagonist survives.  In this case it’s the point of the story.  He’s trying to warn others but he knows that ultimately the succubus left him alive as bait to draw in fresh prey.


Bubble Bath

This is an old fantasy—a sexy succubus coalescing out of bubbles to share a sexy bubble bath with a(n) (un)lucky dude.  This is the first story to feature Annette Brite, New Age shop owner and possible witch.  In the original idea she was a wizened old crone with a market stall.  I changed her into the alluring and mysterious owner of a New Age shop and realised this was an interesting character I could reuse in further stories.


Flesh Pitchers of Prague

The inspiration for this came from various artworks I’d seen of monster girls that were pitcher plant hybrids.  This was the 7th story I posted up on Literotica and my old short story writing instincts were returning with a desire to add more background and story to flesh out the obligatory sex scenes.  Strip Club With A Dark Secret is another classic horror trope (Think From Dusk ‘til Dawn, Vamp, etc.).  In those stories the survivor is usually the morally upstanding one that never wanted to be there in the first place.  I deliberately subverted that as brutally as I did to knock readers off guard.  The imagery for the final scene was inspired by a scene from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.


I had a set plan when picking the stories for my first collection.  The first is a generic succubus story.  The second lays out the general background for people unfamiliar with the succubus myth.  The third expands on the myth and shows more imaginative interpretations.  The ending of the fourth is to let the reader know we’re not fooling around here – this is an erotic horror collection.

I'll continue running through the other stories later this week.

Let's Play Violated Hero 5! part 17

This is the last part of my Violated Hero 5 playthrough.  If you’ve just joined and have no idea what I’m talking about, the start and enlightenment can be found here.  If you’ve been here all the way you’ll know that Violated Hero 5 is an explicit and sometimes squicky monster girl hentai game.  People offended by that sort of thing should leave now.

First up I suppose I should apologize for the rather irregular schedule.  Normally I like to update these playthroughs every couple of days and normally I’m usually a few posts ahead and can do this.  This time around I fell behind and the update schedule ended up being a little patchier than usual, especially when I’m also trying to edit and post a delayed chapter for Succubus Summoning and finish a monster 12K word short story (more on that in a couple of weeks).

Back to the game and we won.  Shiva, Goddess of Destruction showed up and Luka-clone beat her scaly ass with much imbibing of liquid fortifications.

(It’s entirely possibly I might be a little tipsy typing this up as I finished a rough Friday at work with four bottles of beer consumed within a half hour period)

I’m going to assume that was the final fight as there’s only one slot left in the CG replay menu and Dieselmine isn’t quite as sneaky as Torotoro Resistance was with the final part Monster Girl Quest.

Shiva is also surprised when Luka-clone holds back on the killing blow, especially considering the whole universe is at stake here.

Um, Luka-clone buddy, I know you’re honourable and noble and all that, but there is a time and a place and with the worlds imploding all around us, this might be a good time to accidentally trip and thrust your sword into soft bits of anatomy.  Just sayin’

At least Shiva doesn’t immediately try to murderate us like Luna-Tea and Satan did.  Luka-clone’s explains he isn’t going to kill her because she’s a victim of her curse.

She does call him stupid for this.  Destruction God on the verge of blowing up all reality, I think she might have a point.

Luka-clone does have back up as the full cheerleading squad shows up.


(You know they’re all going to fuck him senseless at the first opportunity.)

Then I’m not entirely sure what happens as machine translation starts struggling.  Luka-clone beating Shiva, in fact beating all of them, in combat has some significance.  Each of the major bosses chips in with confirmation of what Shiva said and it ends up with all five dog-piling on Luka-clone.

It’s the Happy Ending Harem scene!


I think our heroic ambulatory bag of concentrated semen is in there somewhere.

Five girls on one dude is actually a little tricky.  There’s always one poor girl that ends up being left out (unless you can get skilled with your big toe).

I’d say it was Shiva here, but I think that’s her tail wrapped around Luka-clone’s manhood.

The dialogue runs through each of the characters.  We have Satan pushing her big tits in Luka-clone’s face.  We have one hand on Shiva’s tit.  Safi is giving the shaft a good licking.  Ariel is working on Luka-clone’s balls and Luna-Tea is licking away on the glans.

Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t take much of that for Luka-clone to blow.  Then there’s lots of slurpy sounds as they enjoy his semen.  This triggers another cumplosion and this carries on until the picture is slowly whited out with cum.

Good End Game Over.

That’s not quite the last of it.  The menu screen now has an extra option at the bottom.


This takes us to an epilogue.  The worlds have been divided up peacefully between Team Good and Team Evil and humans are sort of co-existing with monster girls.

There’s still the occasional bickering.  Luna-Tea and Satan are having an argument about something my machine translator fails to pick up entirely.  Ariel unwisely gets in the middle of it and Luna-Tea finally gives her that slap she’s been threatening for most of the game.  Ariel wails for Luka-clone to intervene.  Not sure why.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen a VH protagonist do anything remotely assertive in the whole of the series.

Shiva shows up and it turns out their conflict resolution consists of forgetting about it and dog-piling on the ambulatory bag of concentrated semen instead.  Nice to see Luka-clone is still doing his bit for world peace.

And bonus harem scene.


There’s actual fucking this time around.  Shiva has ditched the snake tail and is riding away at one end.  Luna-Tea is riding away on Luka-clone’s face at the other.  Satan is giving Luka-clone’s ass a good lick.  I think she might have stuck a feeler in there as well, but at that point the art was starting to get obscured by copious cum splatters.  Safi has her big tits resting on Luka-clone’s belly.  And Ariel . . . well I guess someone has to be the fifth girl.  Sorry Ariel.

Then it’s fade to white.  Or rather fade to sort of cream/white.

And that’s it.  I hope you’ve enjoyed this playthrough of Violated Hero 5.  If you’re feeling particularly generous and would like to make a donation, may I recommend some of my books.  You’ll love them.  They’re packed full of sexy monster girl smut.

(Some people might tell you the protagonists in those books frequently meet horrible horrible ends.  Ignore them.  They’re liars.)

 I’ll give my overall thoughts on the game in a full review in a couple of days time.

Succubus Summoning 210 is up to read at Literotica

Literotica had a really fast turnaround this time.  Usually they take 3-5 days.  I submitted the new chapter late on Tuesday night and it was already up this morning.

Here is the link to the latest chapter:

http://www.literotica.com/s/succubus-summoning-210

NĂ¿te gets to have some fun this time around and I introduce a new monster girl type to play with Phil.

Currently I'm about halfway (3,500 words) through Succubus Summoning 211.  There's a snarl-up in one of the scenes I'm currently unpicking.  Not sure how long it will take to get it finished.  Hoping for sometime in October, but we'll see how it goes.

What will be out in October is the short story I didn't quite finish in time for Literotica's Summer contest.  I finished typing it up today.  It's 12,000 words and is very very hot.  I'll be entering that into the Halloween contest and you should be able to read it in a couple of weeks.

The Violated Hero 5 playthrough should continue tomorrow.  Had a big pile up of stuff happen at the same time and wanted to make sure I didn't neglect my normal writing.

Let's Play Violated Hero 5! part 16

And we’re getting near the end of the Violated Hero 5 playthrough.  Barring any more twists and turns, we’re down to the last boss.  For the start of all this insanity go back to here.  Usual rules apply: if you’re underage or don’t like sex, please don’t go any further as you’re likely to see things you’re not supposed to.

Last up we finally found the missing minor boss, the darkwitch, and it turned out she had more HP than the other major bosses.  This proved no obstacle to Luka-clone and he took her down.

Did he actually win one for real this time (as opposed to previously defeated bosses getting right up after the fight and attempting to jump his bones)?  The darkwitch says his light is too strong and starts to fade into the darkness.  Ah, but as long as there’s abyss she will be reborn.  There looks to be a lot of abyss.  So no change here either.  Oh well, time to push on to Shiva.

Onto stage two of abyss and is that the silhouette of another mini-boss?


Yep it is.  Her name is Remedy and she’s some sort of witch with melty legs.  Most of the mini-boss ends so far have been more brutal than sexy.  What does Remedy have for us?


A really brutal handjob it seems.  Afterwards she takes the rare (for VH5 mini-bosses) step of not killing us.  She wants to keep us as a pet, but the text makes it clear that’s not likely to be a long life before we’re emptied out.

For the rematch I one-shot her for spite with the nice new special attack Luna-Tea and Satan gifted me.

Then it’s a straight run to the end where Shiva is waiting.  She tells us we’ve been a bit a bit slow in arriving and shows us the consequences of that.


Um, that looks bad.  At least all the annoying early bosses with their things-in-the-ass Bad Ends are going down first.

Shiva mentions this has happened before, I think.  Unfortunately we’re going to struggle for good translation here if the story gets too complicated.  Because of her curse Luka-clone has to defeat her to save the universe.  I think she wants him to defeat her but because of the curse is going to fight to the best of the ability.  As best of her ability is universe-shredding Destruction God I suspect this might be a little tricky for our heroic ambulatory bag of concentrated semen.

It’s the last battle.  I have 6 super potions remaining.  Let’s see how many zillions of HP I have to get through.


Oh.  That’s less than the darkwitch.

Oh wait.  This is going to be one of those multi-stage things.

And indeed the combat cuts out after we knock half her HP off.


Shiva says she’s having fun and all her previous wounds heal up.  The end-game harem of Luna-Tea, Satan and Safi all show up to cheerlead.  Well, they try to seal Shiva, but that doesn’t work so well so it’s back to Luka-clone.

The game thoughtfully gives an option to go back to the item screen.  This is great as I can preserve my remaining super potions by using the basic HP and MP potions to max out my HP and MP.  And round 2!

Shiva has now reached the same level as her minion with a 1000 HP.  Okay, so she absorbs damage a lot better.  Everything is doing less than 100 per hit until I unleash the tier 4 special attack and knock of about 300 HP.  This triggers interlude number 2.

Time for Shiva to take the gloves off.  She goes all glowy and then it’s time for round 3.

This time her glowiness is reflected in the artwork as her hands glow with destructive magic (this is the same picture that’s on her profile on the VH5 website).  Her HP have increased, but only to 1200.

Her attacks do a lot more damage this time.  As this is likely to be the last battle I alternate between tier 4 special attack and super potion.  About four hits later and I’ve won.  But the likely harem shenanigans will have to wait until next blog post as we always show the Bad End first.

C’mere alt!Luka-clone.

This time Ariel doesn’t sneer or run away.  Luka-clone tells her to go and save whoever she can.

Not that it’ll matter.  Shiva’s gonna blow up everything.  She tells Luka-clone to enjoy extinction with her.

Bad End scene one looks like we’re about to get a good suck.  Either that or she’s about to fry Luka-clone’s erection with lightning.


She’s a lamia type, so Luka-clone gets all coiled up in snake body first (although it’s described as feeling slimy like a slug.  Snakes don’t feel like that as any exasperated herpetologist will tell you).  She also has the long snake tongue as well.  After that’s tugged a big load from Luka-clone she takes him in her mouth for a good long suck.

Next scene and Luka-clone is all bound up in snake tail while she rubs his erection against the outside of her pussy.


Translation gets a bit tricky again.  I think Luka-clone tries to talk her out of annihilating the universe.  She says it’s impossible unless anyone can solve the curse branded to her body.

Then they start fucking.  Shiva makes Luka-clone come and then makes him watch while she destroys the tree world containing his village and presumably friends and family.

Yeep.  Even I’m not that brutal.

Horrorhead:  You can be.  Be like Brian Keene.  Let me out.  We’ll destroy a world or three.  It’ll be fun.  Let meee ouuuttttt.

And then she keeps on making him ejaculate while she blows up world after world.

So much for my theory of Shiva having so much fun playing with Luka-clone she’d be distracted from destroying everything.  I guess that brings a whole new meaning to fucking someone while something they love is destroyed in front of them.

Even though everything has turned dark we still get an interlude before presumably Shiva’s extra scene.

Shiva is disappointed the person who could have solved her curse never arrived before she obliterated everything.  Now the rest of existence is collapsing, including the abyss.  Shiva decides her last moments will be having sex with Luka-clone.  She switches to a more human form and sits astride him for one last fuck.


And they fuck, with everything going dark around them.

It turns out there is more to Shiva’s action than seeking a last burst of hedonistic pleasure.  She doesn’t want to be solely a goddess of destruction.  She also wants to be a goddess of creation.  She’s doing this with Luka-clone because she wants to conceive and when she does conceive she tells Luka-clone that this will be the next world to replace everything that was destroyed.

Everything fades to black apart from a tiny spark in Shiva’s belly.

..

..

Okay so that was unexpected.  As much as I joke about when Dieselmine gets things wrong, I’m going to have to congratulate their writers here.  They did a very good job with that ending.

Next up, the likely harem shenanigans as we check out the Good End.
