STORY

In the year 20XX, the human race has been conquered by an alien nation called “The Alter”. Humanity nearly went extinct in the fighting, until two girls were found able to use their weapons. Kagura and Saya are the last hope for humanity. They are, the valkyries!

The setup to the story takes place on the dlsite store page. When you start the game, you’re just abruptly told to destroy the four alien bases nearby. Once you succeed, the game ends just as abruptly as it began, with a text box saying “Time to take back earth!”

Kagura is your brawler while Saya is your sharpshooter. All data gained from battle with the Alter is accumulated as “points”. This is the currency of the game used to upgrade your characters. Feel free to favor one over the other, or balance their skills equally.

Since mankind is nearly extinct, there are no NPCs to speak to. All sex scenes are defeat scenes in battle. If one of your girls is defeated, she will be kidnapped and taken away. You must use the other girl to find and rescue her by navigating a short maze.

In each alien base, you must destroy five computer consoles, then defeat a boss in battle. That’s 20 computers and 4 bosses total. The game starts out incredibly difficult, but by the end you’ll feel like an unstoppable mecha warrior of justice! I just wish there was a satisfying ending, because while the game has tons of great niche content, a climax is missing.

GAMEPLAY

The game was created in RPG Maker VX Ace. Use the arrow keys to move. Press CTRL to skip text. The skills you have at the start of the game are the only ones available, so get used to them.

Rather than a standard level-up system, this game relies on points which are used to raise certain stats. In general you’ll want to raise Kagura’s magic points (MP) to cast more spell, while raising Saya’s health points (HP), since they start out weak in those categories. Beyond that, customize them however you see fit.

Some enemies have high defense, so you’ll need to use moves that ignore and penetrate their defense. Others have high speed, so you’ll either need to raise your agility to strike first, or raise your HP to endure some shots. The game is filled with interesting choices like these that keep the player on their toes and planning ahead of things.

I recommend finding the four chests in the game as soon as possible. These contain alter data you can use to upgrade your characters early on. They also contain trap-finders, which are vital when attempting to rescue your partner. The game is two hours in total, and left me begging for more! It really gets addictive over time!

What sets this game apart from others is the “Confinement and Rescue System”. If one of your girls is defeated in battle, she will be taken away and tortured by Alter forces. Whether it’s being whipped or fucked by tentacles, this takes its toll on the girl who was captured. Over time, her maximum MP and other stats will gradually decline.

This creates a strong incentive to rescue her. All that hard work you put into raising her stats is being sapped away slowly! The only way to get it back is to navigate through a maze full of traps to rescue her. And if you get captured as well, it’s game over!

Sex stats are tracked in the bottom right corner of the screen when a girl is captured. Climaxes, creampies, squirts and more! The more time you waste, the more of a pounding she takes! A feature like this is revolutionary! Placed into an NTR game, it would be a best-seller!

I beat the game without ever losing a party member, mostly because I level-grinded nonstop. When I tried it out, I was glad I had the “insight ring” to see all the traps. Rescuing her from prison was an absolute thrill, I felt like a total hero!

GRAPHICS

While the art is drawn in the anime style, it’s much more gritty and realistic than previous works by this developer. Metallic cracks in your armor, concern in the girls’ eyes, and alien-looking machinery probing their bodies make this game a mindfuck. Normally this developer has happy artworks, but this game proves his versatility in creating a truly unique visual experience. It actually feels like an alien race has conquered Earth!

The world map is pretty small, with the game isolated to a single island. With only 12 scenes in total, this game does seem pretty basic on paper. Of course, the sheer level of skill used in creating the enemy sprites and sex scenes makes this game feel much larger than a two-hour experience. It felt akin to Nier Automata in its level of apocalyptic realism and believability.

There are 22 unique enemies in total, each creepier than the last. One looks like a dark and evil version of a Gundam mech, another looks like a moose standing on its hind legs! With every twist and turn, you never know what you’re going to see next.

What would have really made this game complete was some kind of underground city. Maybe the survivors of humanity are hidden away, hiding from the alien menace, akin to Chrono Trigger in its depiction of hope in a bleak future. I wished for more NPCs to talk to.

VOICE ACTING AND SOUND EFFECTS (SFX)

Earth Defense Valkyrie Kagura has no voice acting.

The sound effects in this game come primarily from the stock RPG maker library. Thankfully, the game is not based on swords or magic, so there’s a better variety of sounds to enjoy. Even if they’re stock assets, they’ll still feel unusual for most players.

MUSIC

There are 17 music tracks in total. While some loop after a minute, others are longer and more enjoyable. Still, they’re all stock assets or carried over from previous games by this developer. Even the main menu music is generic. The visuals are gorgeous, the music is very basic.

HENTAI

There are 12 scenes in total. Once the game is completed, the recollection room is fully unlocked and available inside the home base. Player health affects how much clothing is worn, but this rarely has any effect. The one time it did was hilarious, Kagura was nude as she announced the Alter threat had been defeated.

While previous games by this developer offered sexual harassment in battle, this game does not. This means you cannot raise sensitivity levels on body parts or track sex stats outside of rescue mode. This felt disappointing. Even if sex is unlikely, I still like having a positive note on my status that says “virgin” or something. It makes me feel like a skilled player.

Aliens don’t care about female pleasure, they only care about fucking and unloading in human bitches! That means, don’t expect erotic dialogue or something. Once you’re caught, it’s pure fucking!

The biggest downside to the crazy premise and setting of the story, is that it completely precludes the possibility of animation. Her arms and legs are bound into mechanic monstrosities, her pussy is attached to a vacuum tube, her tits are poked with needles, it’s too much! Some would say these scenes are more crowded than sexy, thank goodness they didn’t try to animate this. I’m already light-headed just trying to understand what’s going on!

CONCLUDING WORDS

Earth Defense Valkyrie Kagura is a futuristic sci-fi RPG experience about two busty babes fighting off an alien invasion. My only complaint is the lack of NPCs to interact with and no original music. The visuals are incredibly complex, the gameplay is super enjoyable, and the unique premise makes for a super engaging adult gaming experience.
