Negligee: Love Stories, a hentai visual novel developed by Dharker Studios. Released September 13, 2018. Available for PC Windows. Available for download on Nutaku for $13.99. No voice acting. Uncensored genitals.

A collection of sex-filled short stories, Negligee: Love Stories explores the backstories of Karen, Sophie, Charlotte, and Jasmin before they met each other at the clothes shop. It’s a major step-up from this creator’s previous works. Each story explores sexual relations from a female point of view, and the social consequences of irresponsible lifestyles. The writing style is realistic, and will hit home with people whose friends and families have been devastated by the short-sighted sexual escapades of their loved ones.

STORY

Sophie’s story begins with her getting groped on the train. You can let the man have his way with you in public! Later, Sophie meets her college professor whom she has a crush on, and blow his dick. The scenario escalates quickly. Sophie soon gets her holes filled completely, and her fantasy fulfilled in the process.

Jasmin’s story is about her stripping. It’s a shameless corruption story about a pure conservative girl losing her dignity to the promise of easy money in prostitution. Every time Jasmin is being offered money for sex, the player can choose to ignore the offers, or let things escalate until her pink little pussy gets creamed!

Charlotte’s story is about her first time with a guy, and a girl. She’s unsure of her sexuality, and innocently explores her limits with two partners. Don’t make the wrong choices, or things can go sour for her!

Karen’s story delves into the backstory of the first Negligee game. Why did she leave the clothes shop so suddenly? All we learned was that Karen was married, having an affair with someone. This short story answers the question where she disappeared, and whether she lived happily ever after with his lay.

A special thing to note about each story is that the sex is indulgent, but the immorality of it isn’t celebrated. You see the negative social consequences of sex. Jasmin for example makes a lot of money from stripping and porn, but the more she whores herself out, the more she realizes where the dark path is taking her. Meanwhile, my choices in Sophie’s story in my playthrough ended with the girl getting traumatized and losing important relationships.

Negligee: Love Stories has some great written porn, but it also scores high as a story. The writers deliver a powerful responsible message to young people. Sex is not something you can just casually have, like picking the resins from a pastry. If anything goes wrong, and feelings get hurt, you can lose friends. This kind of positive cultural coding is terribly missing in today’s mainstream entertainment media, which is deluding everyone into a false sense of security in sexual matters. It’s always a risk to have sex with a stranger.

GRAPHICS

The art style is the same quality as the first Negligee. The sprites are all recycled, save for Karen who was barely around in the first game. The only difference is the dresses they wear. Oftentimes, your eyes are grazed by the sight of very fine fabrics taking shape on the girls’ luscious bodies. The underwear design is yummy, luxurious, and beautifully executed by the artist. The panties and brassiere are the type you can only access in expensive specialized stores for women. Every garment the girls wear screams high status.

The artwork in the CGs is just spectacular. The coloring is light and detailed with intricate shading. The shadows are barely visible, but strong enough to give a sense of shape to the characters’ bodies. My eyes feasted on this artwork. The characters looked great, and the backgrounds were realistic. The atmosphere was immersive.

GAMEPLAY

Negligee: Love Stories is a visual novel. You advance the story by clicking the screen. You are presented with several choices during play that take the story into different directions. There are multiple endings. You can save your progress into several save slots. Click the “skip” or “SK” button in the textbox to skip over scenes you’ve read.

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

The game has no voice acting. There are no sound effects, save for a light “thuck” sound while scrolling menus.

MUSIC

The opening theme is a cheerful but chaotic synthetic theme that goes up and down, all over the place. There’s many highlights; even a male choir joins the cacophony. Every time I boot up the game, the song gets me in the right mood. It doesn’t feel hollow or random. Especially the male singing that cuts into the middle made me think of the generations of men who built western societies secure and stable for our women. I feel the song has layers of meaning to it, while making you feel ready to abandon all notions of risk in hopes of getting laid!

The song that plays during Jasmin’s stripping scene is a jazzy tune that goes silent mid-song, lingering, stretching the beat. I liked that song a lot for its variety. Each character had their own theme songs, but they weren’t very interesting, and definitely not as good as Jasmin’s.

HENTAI

The hentai scenes have great build-up leading up to the eventual intercourse. You don’t have to wait long for the scenarios to escalate. Most scenes turn sexual straight off the bat.

The scenes have multiple slides that show the progress of the scene. There’s even simple two-frame animations of a girl jerking off a dick, for example. The girls try on different sexy outfits, they undress, while building up your emotional connection with the characters in anticipation of the glorious nudity. The build-up is excellent and makes the sex that much more satisfying.

The writing is solid, with few spelling and grammatical errors. The dialog is laced with sexy self-descriptions of what the females are feeling during sex. The language flows with ease and isn’t too prosaic for its own good.

I liked that the scenarios turned sexual so quickly, so I could drop my pants sometimes immediately upon choosing the story. If you prefer a slow build-up with ample relationship-building preceding the intercourse, this game is not for you. The sex in this game is quick: The girls hook up and lose control in the heat of the moment.

CONCLUDING WORDS

Negligee: Love Stories is the first game from Dharker Studios I approve of. It’s delightfully focused on the sex without sacrificing character development and relationship development. There’s a socially responsible message that the writers deliver gracefully without neglecting to provide a stream of fantastic sex scenes with cute conservative girls struggling in a world full of temptations. Ultimately the girls get corrupted, lower their standards, and descend into the hell of sexual liberation. Download Negligee: Love Stories!
