It deals with the trio of Shun, Yuna and Haruka.The game begins in a premise where Shun and Yuna’s father has remarried. Choosing his newly minted married life over his children, he leaves to go live without them with his new wife. As a result Shun and Yuna live together as a duo, and are sort of attached at the hip.
Yuna is very strict with Shun and scolds or takes offence even at his slightest of mistakes. This has become the norm of their day to day existence. But, this mundane existence is split into two pieces with the arrival of Haruka. Haruka claims to be Shun’s sister and comes with a very weird proposition.
She believes that since she is his sister it must mean they love each other and if they love each other, which must mean they’re engaged to be married and if they’re engaged to be married that must mean they should do some sexual things together.
This angers Yuna to no limit and she does everything to prevent it. Seeing her attitude Hakura concurs that must mean Shun and Yuna are engaged to be married as well and if they’re engaged to be married as well that must mean they should all do sexual things together!

But all his plans are dampened when his parents decide to stomp on them by making him stay at their friend’s house. But his fortunes changed drastically when he realized that it is no ordinary household. It is made up of all women. And there weren’t any run of the mill women here. They are 5 very beautiful, sexy, voluptuous and hot women consisting of 4 daughters and their mother.
All these women are terribly inexperienced with men and are very excited with the prospect of entertaining a male company. All of them are attracted to him and want to have sexual relations with him. And with this begins the saga of jealousy, heartbreak, choices, and of course a lot of sex.

An expansion pack of the game, Jinkō Shōjo 3 Hannari, was released by Illusion in 2008.
Kokoro is an adult bishōjo game released on December 4, 1998 in Japan by Aaru. “Kokoro” is Japanese for “heart,” and the title represents both the literal breaking of the katakana expression for “heart” and the figurative breaking of the protagonist’s heart. The game deals with incest, sexual abuse, homosexuality and murder.
Kokoro has a very intense setting as well as a storyline. It mostly deals with the adventures and adversity of Sōji Kuonji. He has a bad past of being sexually abused by almost his entire family. His father, mother and elder sister all raped him when he was a child.
When we begin the game we see Kuonji in an incestuous relationship with his younger sister. He has become very mechanical and unemotional in his day to day attitude. All of this is because of all the horrible memories that have surfaced due to his traumatic experiences of the past.
The main mystery of the game happens when he begins to get increasingly haunted by visions of his parents having been murdered and of a mysterious dark-haired nude woman who tries to alternately molest and kill him.
Discipline: Record of a Crusade is a Japanese hentai interactive fiction video game developed by ActiveSoft and released in Japan in 2002 and by Kitty Media in North America in 2007.

Everything that happens from that point on is to fulfill this aim. Yuuki chases Hayami and he tries to avoid becoming her sex slave at all costs and meets many other girls in that course of action.
12. Nekopara Vol. 2
Though full of naughty and gratuitous scenes at its core Nekopara Vol.2 is a very innocent story of sisterhood and friendship. It follows characters like Kashou Minaduki and his two catgirls, Chocola and Vanilla, his sister Shigure, and the Minaduki family’s four catgirl sisters.
We have many character variations as well to make us root for people. We have an older sister, Azuki who has developed a shield of toughness to hide her inner sensitivity, and a younger sister, Coconut with all the good intentions in the world accompanied by a really clumsy attitude that almost always messes up everything.
Though in the past they were both very amicable but now an issue has cropped between them which has led to a lot of fighting. As the game progresses all these sisters begin to understand each other, their emotions, heart and feelings. This is sort of a slice of life, albeit a little lewd game.

14. Mizuki Island
Mizuki Island probably has the most check boxes checked when it comes to Erotic games than any other game, here. It has juicy, vicarious and voluptuous animation all throughout the game. It also has a very juicy setting of two people literally in an isolated location.
The game follows two characters named Mizuki and Kemichi. They are acquaintances that had been travelling together. The twist comes when they are deserted together on a beach. It is when they are deserted that the most enticing visual of the entire game occurs where Mizuki’s breasts could be barely contained in her bikini.
After this both of them begin a journey of self-preservation and solitary confinement. As expected considering how beautiful and horny these characters are, their adventure quickly achieves sexual overtones. The game has multiple Erotic and Hentai elements to it, but what really works for the game is how much user interaction it allows. The user actually feels that he or she is in the actual game.
15. The Menagerie
The Menagerie has a lot of themes working for it like class difference, mystery as well as adventure. It has people constantly in a war over a secret as well as each other which adds layers of interest to it.
It takes place in Alabast, a desert city. In this city there is a structure known as ‘The Sail’, which separates the nobles from the lowly commoners. Though the rules and regulations of this town seem set, there is something very fishy going on here.
There is an ivory tower, where this game is played. In this tower the nobles bury their secrets. At the very root of the sails, there is a collection of sorts called ‘The Menagerie’. There you will find everything or everyone you can possibly dream of. There are exotic artefacts, creatures and even other people across the world. But everything here has a very specific prize that you have to pay.
16. Bukkake Ranch
The first and foremost thing about Bukkake Ranch, is that it is very overtly sexual. It doesn’t beat around the bushes at all. Even though there is a sort of storyline, everything here is just about bodies and physical intimacy.
The story is set in a very quaint surrounding of Bukkake Ranch, where there is no hustle bustle of today’s world. Everything is very quaint and peaceful. The most beautiful and charming thing about this place is its four elementals- the salamander girl, Sara, the slime girl, Myil, the bold, Korin and the harpy Papy.
Everything is hunky dory until the Demon Queen comes there to demand the player aka alchemist to create a Slut Stone. The “Slut’s Stone” is an item created by gathering the sexual power, from each of four elementals: one of fire, water, wind, and earth.
The only way it can be done is by having lots and lots of sex with all of the elements and this is where the catch and the pleasure is.
In Eiyuu Senki the players find themselves in an alternate universe. Here the player is attached to Date Masamune. Masamune names him his younger brother. The hero’s characteristics are very enigmatic, magnetic as well as charming.
They initially just want to unite Zipang, but quickly start to dream big when they see the success of their operation. There next order of action becomes the necessity to stop the Temple Knights from corrupting the people with orbs, and subsequently feed on, their negative emotions
In all this intensity and confusion Masamune is always encouraging the player to engage in sexual and intimate activity with every girl they come across making the situation more embarrassing and uncomfortable.
The reason Masamune advocates this is because according to her every other girl in the world is the main characters’ wife and should provide pleasure to him. The game has Partial Nudity and Sexual Content.
