I'm so delighted to say that Lust For Darkness is the real deal. The fact that I can compare it to one of the greatest erotic thrillers of all time in Eyes Wide Shut, and not break down laughing, is in itself is a great credit to the developers. The game lacks the sheer mastery and refinement that Stanley Kubrick had over his canvas, but this is still leagues ahead of the clumsy, overly-simple idea of "horror" that most game developers aspire to.

Unlike Agony, Lust for Darkness is a pleasant surprise that doesn't attempt to gross you out at every opportunity. It has a logical and interesting world and an engaging story with a well done conclusion that makes it recommendable with a clear conscience.

This is more a one and done story, but its a story that's well worth experiencing first hand, even if it is a little rough around the edges.

Lust for Darkness is a horror adventure that takes place between an ancient mansion where dark ceremonies of a cult dedicated to sex take place, and the Lusst'ghaa dimension, a place abandoned to carnal pleasures and the infinite ecstasy. Strong Lovecraftian inspiration and designs inspired in Giger designs, for a horror adventure that sounds better than it looks and moves, with a technically poor version for Switch and a collection of bugs that necessarily subtract from the score.

Lust for Darkness is a decent horror-adventure game with strong visuals and satisfying mature themes, but the weak story and annoying gameplay quirks weaken the experience.

A psychological horror full of sex scenes without surprising story and content.

A disappointing foray into sex horror which does nothing interesting with either genre.

Lust for Darkness takes the most interesting concept ever greenlit on Steam and manages to make it more pedestrian than a sidewalk.

Lust for Darkness is an erotic psychological horror that relies too heavily on the shock value of nudity and gore in a way that that isn't handled with any level of maturity or seriousness nor has the gameplay chops to back it up. A couple of cheap jump scares is all you'll really take away from this short budget title.

It doesn’t take very long for Lust for Darkness to overplay its hand and reveal just what kind of horror game it really is; for all the shock value of seeing some Giger-esque creature with an overtly phallic head or yet another doorway shaped like genitalia, you realise it’s just that: hollow grotesquery employed for the sake of making you cringe.
