Part base simulation, part adventure game, you play as a woman whose dreams lead her to discover a device of immense power in the middle of the forest outside her all female college. You then use the device's technologies to start enslaving women around your campus.
Gameplay is part exploration and puzzle solving, working on logic puzzles, talking to people, using items on stuff. The other part is building up your base using the resources and slaves you found during your exploration. Random events occur at night that test your base's defense or research capabilities.
Also there is a lot of sex.
Our hero discovers the Lilith Device, a large futuristic laboratory/living quarters in the middle of the deep misty forests. Egged on by the holographic assistant to the device, the player travels through her campus and enslaves two women to help build up the device. But when the holographic assistant offers her a choice between one of her oldest friends or her girlfriend, what will the player choose?
As a mysterious signal rings silently throughout town putting strange, robotic, obedient thoughts into people's heads, our hero decides to investigate, arriving at a mysterious mansion owned by the richest woman in town. But our hero isn't the only mind controller to take an interest in the place...
A new, brilliant researcher comes to town to talk about her new invention that can literally change the minds and bodies of anyone who enters it. Holo the Device's aide wants the researcher to serve the device but someone has other plans it would seem.
When someone kidnaps and enslaves one of our hero's friends she has no choice but to get herself enslaved in hopes of rescuing her. But when the Mistress decides to make every one of her slaves look exactly the same, will a rescue be possible? Would the friend even be recognizible?
It seems ruining Queen Mitsuko's base of operations has made our hero a number of enemies. When the device is besieged by an ancient coven of witches will our hero be able to sneak into their operation and settle some sort of peace or is she doomed to become one of their drudge slaves?
-More chapters to come-
Keep in mind, this is my first review ever on a game on this site and this is my personal opinion.
This is a game that I found randomly while browsing through the site and decided to check it out. 5 hours later I realized that I was still quite into it and really enjoying what is there to play with. So what is good about it and bad about it in my opinion?
Overall though I would give this game 8/10, big part of it is because I love games where you have a slave of your own to order around as you please or being an dominant person where people seem to fear you. This game has both aspects but perhaps lacks what exactly you can order your slaves to be doing and as mentioned, can get really hard really fast and that really gets in the way on earlier stages in the game.
I can only reiterate what previous reviewers have said, in the hope that this game is tried out by more people. This isn't a smut game with incidental gameplay. This is a well constructed, lengthy adventure game with clever puzzles, lots of lovely ladies to recruit and some XCOM style base management woven into the plot. Try it out!
This game should be the gold standard against which all other RAGS games are measured.
The Lilith Device is almost criminally underrated. It is a deep management game that revolves around capturing and brainwashing slaves. You capture a researcher and start to develop new technologies, which of course let you capture more slaves. All of this while avoiding your enemies - who all want to make you into their slave in return.
The story is well fleshed out and quite extensive, the base management mechanics are very fun and well made. At one point I ended up making a little spreadsheet to maximize my efficiency, but I think I went a little bit overboard there. The game also has several quite good puzzles, most of them are logical and work, although there were a few times where I was stuck for some time, and once I had to look at the forums for how to progress. It also has several cameos from Dollmistress' The Hive and Space Ditz, amongst other.
It is a shame that the game is not finished (and it looks like it never will be) - but there is still enough content to keep you playing The Lilith Device over the course of several days, and then play it again to explore the options you didn't try.
The Lilith Device is definitely a must-play. I'd highly recommend it to anyone, especially people who are into brainwashing, doll-making and lesbians.
An awesome game with it's basic content (recruiting slaves, tricking slaves and it's puzzle-like gameplay). Then made amazing due to it's XCOM style base management (research, base defending, role management and ongoing threats). Kudos CaptainSkel, not for making a good erotic game; but for making a game I'd enjoy without the adult theme. Looking forward for more content!
