Your father has died, and he left you a massive debt. You have no choice but to sell your ass to pay it back! Let’s just hope that degrading yourself sexually will let you avoid total, absolute financial ruin!

STORY

You’re a rich girl, but your daddy died with a mountain of debt and now you’re a broke girl! Pay off that debt or you’ll get kidnapped by the Yakuza and forced into prostitution!

Every couple days, a small story event will occur. For example, will you accept the financial help of Uncle An? These choices primarily affect your money, and sometimes your ending. With 30 choices and six endings in total, the game has tons of replay value.

The setups to the sex scenes are hard to believe. The background music and dialogue tries to convey a serious tone, but the idea that every man on the planet is a sex hungry psychopath is outrageous. It kills any sense of realism.

For example, a shop owner accuses you of stealing and randomly fucks you. This is a mandatory sex scene without any buildup. It seems like the developer made the art first and worried about the plot second.

Although there are six endings, all of them are bad. It is impossible to complete the game as a virgin, so don’t bother trying. Even the so-called “good endings” are bittersweet at best. This game has a depressing side that left me feeling bad after playing it.

GAMEPLAY

Broke Girl was created in the Unity game engine. You only need a mouse to play. You can skip dialog by pressing the CTRL key, but you should avoid it. The skip is far too fast and there is no text log. This means, you’ll almost certainly skip far past where you meant to, and be left confused about what happened.

Click a job, make some money, buy some clothes. Repeat this until a scene or choice appears. The gameplay has zero depth.

The entire game would have been significantly better if created in Renpy. It would have had text logs, the option to reverse dialog, and custom skip speed built in by default. The game would also run smoother! Right now, there are occasional input lags that ruin player immersion.

The gameplay is simple. You owe 10 million dollars and have 2 years to pay it back. This is impossible unless you prostitute yourself. While at first you’ll do small jobs like selling real estate or giving massages, eventually you’ll have to become a prostitute for the big bucks.

Each job is tied to one of three skills. These are service, fame, and eloquence. For example, your skillful hands in massaging may come in handy in porn work.

Normally your skills increase as you continue working jobs. However, if you press the skip button, your skills will not increase. This means you are forced to watch repetitive chibi animations for hours on end, which makes for a boring experience. The game never tells the player it works like this, so you may have low skills forever without a clue how to raise them.

GRAPHICS

The artwork is mostly drawn in the Japanese anime style, except for some character sprites which don’t quite fit in. The female protagonist will meet tons of horny guys in her life, all of which have a unique appearance. Some fit well with her anime art style, while others look like they belong in a different game. The image above is a perfect example. While the girl is a typical anime blonde, the shop owner is drawn in a completely different art style. This was jarring and unexpected, my immersion was ruined.

The game was created in Unity, so naturally the frame rate is crazy. Sometimes it’s smooth as silk, while other times the game slows to a crawl. This has nothing to do with computer strength, the game is just poorly optimized.

Everybody has a single character sprite. This is horrible, because there are no variations based on emotion. A character’s dialogue will indicate they’re angry and going to hit you, but their artwork shows them smiling.

Cute chibi artworks play during your job, and the image gallery is completely unlocked once you beat the game, regardless of your ending. There’s also 8 different outfits. Sadly, these outfits are rarely shown during sex scenes, where the main girl gets naked almost immediately every time.

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

Broke Girl has no voice acting.

Due to poor optimization, audio quality suffers. When the game lags, the audio becomes scratchy and laggy. You may end up muting the game just to avoid it. When the audio does work, it’s crappy. The blowjob sounds like generic squishy jello being mashed about. The sound effect for knock on the door sounded like paper or bubble wrap. There is nothing positive to be said except that the game would be better off silent.

MUSIC

There are only a handful of musical tracks in this game, but they rarely work as intended. The main track that plays during job scheduling is good elevator music but painfully generic. Outside of that, the experience is dreadful. The music track will reset when you do anything, even pause for a moment! When you allow the music to play smoothly, it still disappoints by never matching the scene. The girl was crying two seconds ago, but now a happy bouncy tune is playing!

HENTAI

The hentai content is the true highlight of this game. With 14 unique scenes and artworks, there’s plenty of erotic content to enjoy. You’re likely to miss some during your playthrough, but once you complete the game, all the scenes will be unlocked in the gallery.

From cowgirl to doggystyle, there are plenty of positions to enjoy. The erotic dialogue shows the girl’s transition from hating sex to eventually begging for cum. Consensual sex is the minority of content. This gets pretty silly, because a guy will force himself onto you, then pay 600,000 money for sex. If he’s forcing you, why did he pay you?

While most content is vanilla prostitution, there is some borderline NTR content to be found. A suitor for the girl is completely in love with her, but she keeps sleeping around and selling her body to others.

CONCLUDING WORDS

Broke Girl is a prostitution-themed game created by a small indie developer. With six endings and 14 erotic scenes in total, there’s plenty of content to explore. Available in four languages and every operating system, including Android, this game has broad market appeal. If you love anime blondes with big tits, this is the perfect game for you.
