Bring Her To Life
GameChanger Studio, the Indonesian developer behind games like My Lovely Daughter and Ascender, have announced a new gothic fantasy game, My Lovely Wife, is coming soon. Like My Lovely Daughter, it is part alchemy simulation. This time, though, they’ve added in elements of dating simulations to provide a unique twist.
You play as Jake, an ordinary guy who is suffering after the death of his beloved wife Luna. When a mysterious stranger offers to help bring her back to life, he’s on board. It won’t be easy though. Saving Luna will require him to summon up to twenty different succubi in order to harness their Carnal Essence. Establishing a relationship with the succubi will be your first step. Their affection is necessary to complete the task. That is gained by focusing on each of their unique wants, needs, and characteristics. All this relationship building will lead up to a critical decision. After gaining their trust, are you willing to betray and sacrifice the succubi to obtain this much needed resource?
Managing the unique feelings of these various characters will be crucial to getting what you want and saving Luna. GameChanger are promising 42 endings depending on the many choices you’ll have to make in order to finish this tale. The developers seem set on making a unique statement as well.
“Developing My Lovely Wife, one of our goals was to make a statement about toxic relationships. When we’re in love, we tend to ignore that we may actually be trapped in an unhealthy situation. We hope that our game stirs the emotions of our players, to be disturbed not just by the characters, but by their own actions they make as Jake.” – Lasheli Dwitri, Narrative Designer
Sounds like an interesting combination for sure and one I look forward to jumping into. My Lovely Wife will be available for both the Nintendo Switch and PC in the near future. You can see a trailer for the game this is a spiritual successor to below.
