Indie dev Christine Love has revealed that Ladykiller In A Bind will be her first full-fledged eroge.
Ladykiller In A Bind is also known by its spoiler-rich name, My Twin Brother Made Me Crossdress As Him And Now I Have To Deal With A Geeky Stalker And A Domme Beauty Who Want Me In A Bind!!
The main plot has you playing the cross dressing main character, trapped in a cruise ship with both classmates and enemies. The aim of the game is social manipulation, something that hasn’t been explored much before.
Love has also stated that this would be her last visual novel. In her words:
Actually, Ladykiller in a Bind is very easily going to be my least traditional visual novel, and vastly more systems-oriented than my previous stuff. It’s still a visual novel presentation, but we’re going to be doing a lot with the social manipulation element of the game; the ways you interact with people, and who you decide to pay attention to, will play a very big role in how the story unfolds. So there’s going to be a lot of careful balancing of hostile social situations, which is quantified through game systems, and designed to be very different in multiple playthroughs.
It’s also going to be my last visual novel, precisely because I’m sorta worried I’ve focused too much on making the same sorts of games, and I very much need to start increasing my range. I don’t want to fall into a rut of just constantly making visual novels about computer interfaces. I have no idea what I’ll be working on after Ladykiller in a Bind, but it’ll likely be a very different sort of game than I’ve done in the past.
And now, what you may have come here for. You can check out the game’s NSFW trailer below:
