Disclaimer: At the time of writing, the game has an early build out. This review is not a representation of the finished product.

STORY

There’s no overarching story to the game, but there are quest lines which introduce you to the mechanics while teaching you about ancient Rome. The game has a decent conversation system with branching options during speech, which provide backstory.

The quests reminded me of MMORPGs. For example, there are characters who will do favours for you after you complete their errands. There are interrogation quests and even fetch quests! Some of these take you to new lands!. All of these quests are excellent at helping at world building. Mini-games gradually get unlocked as you progress through quests. There is gambling, whipping, and archery. The quests are definitely the strongest aspect of this very unique 3D porn game.

GAMEPLAY

On the surface, Slaves of Rome looks like a simple trainer game. You train your slaves and sell them for a profit, but it’s more complex than that. For instance, there’s a skill tree which increases your slave’s stats, ie. endurance and stamina. At certain nodes you’ll unlock positions and punishments, such as anal, reverse cowgirl for positions, and public humiliation and even shaving their heads!

There are two different modes during sex scenes. You can choose the hands-free mode, or you can play minigames. You gain more in-game currency from the minigames, which you use to buy items like whips and dildos for your slaves.

The sex minigame is about rhythm. You time your button presses around the same time with your character as he thrusts into the slave’s holes. You complete the minigame by filling up the “cum” bar which allows you to finish the deed by cumming all over your slave at the end. As for the punishment minigame, it’s mindless clicking for around 30 seconds. The minigames get repetitive after a while, sadly.

The progression curve is skewed. You have to grind a lot. Every character has a unique skill tree, so the tediousness of the grind depends on the number of slaves you want to train. You’ll be stuck seeing the same few sex positions for a long time if you want to accumulate currency. You’ll also be stuck seeing the whip punishment scene numerous times when farming skill points to unlock new sex positions.

There is a custom slave creator, where you can design your very own personal sex slave, but unfortunately the feature is locked behind the $50 Patreon tier.

Thankfully, there is a customization feature for the slaves you already own. you can change their weight, boob size, butt size and even give them elf ears! In the most recent update, the developer added a futanari option!

GRAPHICS

The game is made using Unreal Engine. 3D models look pretty good. The models do get roughed up during punishment scenes, their skin gradually gets redder, whip marks appear the more you whip. The bruises disappear at the end of a session. There is a wide variety of characters. There’s multiple races and physiques, and their bodies all have a tinge of shininess, as if lathered in lotion.

There is a minimap in the game but it is still in a very barebones state. All it shows are the basic structures without showing where the NPCs are. And with the map being so cluttered with houses, it’s practically useless since most of the time you’ll be surrounded by houses with no indication of where your objective is.

There are some alignment issues with the models during penetration: The penis will penetrate the side of the vagina when thrusting, dildos penetrate the sides and thighs, fingers penetrate nothing during fingering. It makes the scenes look clunky at times.

On the bright side, the environments all look very detailed. This is easily one of the best-looking 3D worlds in an adult virtual reality game. I was disappointed that these environments are not used more. I would have liked to be able to fuck the slaves anywhere I choose instead of in pre-determined locations, such as the dungeon.

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

When it comes to audio, you hear generic sex sounds, moans and whatnot. A random thing I noticed was the thrusting sounds, which were very pronounced and very notable in the sex scenes. I would have liked more environmental sounds to couple with the amazing landscapes.

Characters tend to say some lines during sex, such as “I’ll do anything!” or “Please Stop!” but only the subtitles show up, as there’s no actual voices being heard. Some characters have voice acting in quest lines, but the quality varies greatly. Some actors show emotion in their lines while others felt like plain reading off a script.

MUSIC

To my dismay, there is no music in the game aside from the opening cutscene. Some ambient music would be a welcome addition.

HENTAI

Slaves of Rome has the full BDSM arsenal as the player’s disposal. All your slaves are appropriately dressed to the minimum, topped with chains and collars. You’re equipped with various tools such as whips, canes and even the X-Cross to dominate your slaves. The game is also LGBTQ friendly and allows all sorts of couples.

There are quite a few sex positions, and the developer is constantly adding more. The characters’ looks and motions are natural enough. The only gripe I have is that the anal option is locked to missionary only. Every time you swap between vaginal sex and anal sex, you’re forced to watch through an unskippable cutscene.

I was not able to get virtual reality working for sex scenes. I was only able to float in the sky and alternate between positions playing out while flailing my two flying hands. I’m not sure whether it is my headset or the game because I was able to get the whip punishment game working. That was a decent VR experience. The whip movement was good and you can feel impact when whipping your slave.

Not all scenes are playable in VR and you’ll have to hop in and out of VR during gameplay.

CONCLUDING WORDS

Slaves of Rome is one of the most unique BDSM games I’ve experienced. Though the sexual aspects may be lacking in the current build, the other parts of the game are more than enough to cover for the weaknesses. Characters all have their own unique stories and abilities, quests are interesting and the world building is immersive.

This game has the potential to become the Skyrim of adult games but it is still bare-bones for now, with issues to iron out. I recommend keeping an eye on this game. Discover this steamy porn game at VRPorn.com.
