With women's group Equality Now campaigning against its games that simulate rape on virtual women, and with regulations now in place prohibiting the sale against similar titles in Japan, Rapelay developer Illusion is taking a different approach with its latest hentai game -- since it stars a male demon who submits to forced sex when defeated.

In Yuusha Kara wa Nigerarenai (You Can't Escape From the Heroines), a group of female Dragon Quest lookalikes are chasing the player, a male demon named Maou, to drain his energy through sex and seal him away. When the heroines catch up to players, they'll fight the women off through an odd combat system that involves different and often ridiculous poses (pictured).

When players win the battles, the game will present a consensual sex scene with a female demon, which will strengthen Maou's powers. A defeat, however, will punish players with a scene in which Maou's antagonists steal his energy and become more powerful by having sex with him.

This seems like odd loophole exploitation by Illusion - I'm surprised that the new forced sex restrictions imposed by Japan's Ethics Organization of Computer Software (EOCS) don't take scenarios like this into account.
