About the Circle
Babesoul Entertainment (http://www.babesoul.com/) is an international studio specializing in small, cheap mini games that can be purchased through a single game engine (similar to Steam). The are also developing an online sex RPG. “Rebecca Touch Me” was released on 10 Jan 12, and is one of dozens of affordable mini-games available on their official website for only $3.99. Alteratively, it is available on DLSite for 1,785 JPY ($23.24) …now that’s a markup from hell!
“Touch Me” is supposed to be a 3D touch simulator with a slight bondage theme, however it is actually a train wreck of a product that is not even worthy of the time I’ve spent telling you how awful it is.
If purchased through DLSite, you must log-in with their secure application kicker; which is the anti-piracy they use for video games that are [SARCASM] so hot and well made that people will actually want to play it [/SARCASM]. Needless to say, this is a major downer for any title, but for this one it’s just ludicrous. If you purchase this game (and please don’t) from the official website, you have to create an account on their site and log in with it.
Either way, once you get past that, you load straight into a room where Rebecca is suspended and awaiting your attention. There is no text, or audio, or dialogue to expand on that. She has a mood indicator, which seems to only change if you touch her feet (strange). There is no tutorial or guide, or adequate instructions to get you going.
As you can see from the screenshots provided, Rebecca is not much to look at. Her body is pretty ordinary, her costume is un-original, and well… she looks like something from “The Sims 2″ complete with flat textures, rudimentary shading, and distorted lines on her clothing. I’m guessing that Somavision’s developers churned this one out during their lunch break. It’s just plain horrible.
No music, and no sound effects unless you count the annoying error beep that plays whenever you touch Rebecca. She has a voice, but only makes noise when you touch her. The voice effects are choppy and repetitive, and are only slightly less annoying than the error beep.
At only 60MB in size, there’s obviously not much to see here, so I find it puzzling that they chose to use a 3D engine rather than a simple flash environment. As for the engine itself… FAIL. The controls are simple enough to figure out, however once you attempt to move the camera, it jerks you right through the walls out to an empty sky… so yeah, clipping is a bit of a problem here.
When you do touch Rebecca, her reactions are minimal, usually just a wince, or maybe her boobs bounce a little. But it’s evident to me that this graphics engine was not designed for sex games, it’s probably recycled from a 10-year old FPS. Furthermore, whenever you click-drag to remove her clothing, the entire engine grinds up and gets choppy… and this is on a Radeon HD5870 so no, it’s not my card!
Long Term Value/Game Play
As with any other touch simulator you can grope her and peel of her clothes, but without a tutorial I can’t tell you what else to do. Each time you touch her, it resets a “position counter” that doesn’t really seem to do anything other than annoy me. Then if you sit still and let the position counter run down, it prompts you to “touch the model” and then if you touch her nothing different happens.
I did manage to peel off her bra and panties, but it took me five minutes or so to realize that in order to actually remove them, you have to click on a box in the back of the room. Basically the look and feel of this title were both so lousy that I gave up after a few minutes.
Overall Impressions/Last Word
This is the worst 3DX title I have ever seen, and I cannot score it low enough to do it justice. Take this an an example of just how awful some 3D porn can be, and recognize that artist who *are* doing good work deserve your praise and yes, even your money.
Needless to say, don’t buy this title… but if you want to point and laugh, check it out here.
