STORY

Yuno was almost sacrificed and killed by her fellow villages! Help this dark-skinned elf girl escape and find true happiness outside of the forest! Maybe if you’re lucky, she’ll fall in love with you completely!

As a sequel, this game is of equal or lesser quality to Gran Ende 1. There is no overall story, with most important events happening in the final hour of playtime. The focus is on love rather than adventure.

Building on the lore from the previous game, more information is revealed about “Gate Crystals”. These crystals are created by dark energy, but what if that energy was sealed away? Yuno has dark energy sealed within her that must be released.

The use of a male protagonist that can be named by the player was a cool way to make players immersed in the story. The character “Kuu” from the previous game makes a return and gets much more screen time. This game can be completed without sex. There are also aren’t any kinky fetish sex scenes. It is a character-driven experience with a linear story that offers only one ending.

GAMEPLAY

Gran Ende was created with RPG Maker. You move with the arrow keys and press spacebar to interact with objects and people. Press CTRL to skip dialogue. Press ‘Q’ to access the world map. Press ‘S’ to interact with Yuno. Hold Enter to speed up combat.

It’s a standard dungeon crawler, and a very grindy one at that! Player level maxes at 50, at which point you’re expected to buy stat-boosting items to beat the tougher enemies. Counting only the level grind, this game will take at least eight hours to complete.

This game removes many features from Gran Ende 1, such as bounties, prostitution, fame, charm, and lust. Instead, gameplay is focused on building your relationship with Yuno. Whether it’s eating together, talking, or headpats, you can increase her affection and unlock new hentai activities. To make money, the only option is the “subjugation system”, which simply pays you for killing 20-40 enemies. The features that weren’t removed for this sequel are either copied or slightly improved upon.

During the ending of the game, extra scenes and extended scenes will occur for each of the sub-events you completed during your playthrough. If you fully romanced Kuu, she will have extra dialogue in your ending.

GRAPHICS

The art is classic Japanese anime style. All the visuals are pretty good, but there are noticeable flaws. For example, the artist over-uses bright white lines to signify light and the contours of skin. Some of these photos make the girls look very shiny.

There are four gorgeous ladies for the hero to romance. The busty nun has saved her chastity for a true hero. The kind-hearted innkeeper has no self-control when it comes to big dick! Yuno is your petite elf who truly loves you! And my favorite, Kuu, is a gorgeous blonde researcher who has trouble expressing herself, but she truly does care for you.

The positioning of characters is strange. A great example is the artworks for the missionary position, which don’t look at all like you’re laying down! It looks more like the cowgirl position, and it seems like the artist struggled to convey a sense of gravity.

Even though some artworks are weird, there are many more than the previous title! The 15 basic scenes are given over 30 base CGs, with 500 art assets in total related to these scenes. Each scene has a variation for indoors and outdoors context. Also, each scene has new artworks for each stage of experience. A virgin giving a blowjob is different from an experienced girl throating cock.

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

Gran Ende 2 has no voice acting.

The available sound effects are varied and well placed. Some are licensed items, while others come from the RPG maker library. The sex sound effects are absolutely perfect! The sense of thrusting and the slapping of skin is super realistic and hot! Sound design conveys the emotion well. With rainfall and the dripping of water, the feeling of sadness is expressed perfectly!

MUSIC

There are 32 songs in this game, most of them royalty-free stock music.

The music failed to evoke my emotions. Atmospheric tracks often feel very out of place. You might hear a song with violin on top of running water. The lack of a cohesive tone to the game stops the music from hitting on any real emotions.

HENTAI

The game has over 30 base CGs, not counting character stills. There are 15 basic scenes, but each scene has multiple variations based on experience. The blowjob scene has four variations: The virgin blowjob scenes shows Yuno being shy around the dick, while the experienced blowjob scenes shows her deepthroating and begging for cum!

Sex positions are very basic: Missionary, cowgirl, and doggystyle. The nun can give you a titfuck and Yuno can give you anal. The dialogue is plain with girls only saying “Ooh” and “aah” as you pound their pussies.

Many players report that the sex scenes feel out of place. As a pure love game, you can actually avoid all sexual content and play this as a standard RPG. Even if you hunt for sex, you’ll be playing a long time before you access any scenes. Finding sex scenes will be easier after you beat the game and unlock the recollection room, which offers you hints.

My favorite scene was bending over the blonde researcher and fucking her brains out. She had no sex scenes in the first game. At last, I could finally creampie her moist virgin pussy!

CONCLUDING WORDS

Gran Ende 2 is a fun indie RPG title. The combat is grindy and the story is basic. The game is focused on the romance. There are no kinky scenes, but if you enjoy having a cute girl fall in love with you, you will enjoy.
