To Trust an Incubus

When Kenta began his job at Japan’s Inner-Dimensional Institute, he didn’t expect that he would become its test subject. The institute recently obtained four hunky incubi (male sexual demons) from another dimension, but these evil creatures can only speak by “bonding” with someone else… and Kenta is that someone. This is the plot of To Trust an Incubus, a recently released gay sci-fi yaoi/bara visual novel.

For three months, Kenta will live in quarantine to try and bond with one or more incubi. But while each one is muscular with a bedeviling set of horns, they’re also passionate. And potentially lethal — Kenta could fall in love or end up dead.

To Trust an Incubus is the latest “dating simulation” video game designed to appeal to gay gamers (and straight women). Other recent examples include Dream Daddy and Coming Out on Top in which players try to seduce a collection of hot dudes, each with their own temperament and personality.

To Trust an Incubus is a rather explicit game. There’s sexual language, non-consensual groping and non-graphic mentions of past torture. The game demurely covers up each character’s sexy bits with cutesy stickers (unless you download the uncensored patch), but the intercourse is otherwise on full display with graphic illustrations, moaning and narration

When so many video games feature straight male heroes saving damsels in distress, other are finally giving gay people a chance to explore dating and desire in new and fantastic ways. Even players who dislike sexualized storylines can still explore queer identity through other recent titles like Newfound Courage and Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker, paving the way for a new generation of action, puzzle and role-playing games with queer characters at their forefronts.
