In Barrowport, a town of dark mysteries, the young woman said, "I want you to ruin me."

As a professor of antiquities, you assumed your new position would involve investigating strange artifacts and stories of monsters. You didn't expect that young Theresa Radcliffe would know your forbidden secret or that she would beg you to lead her down a path of depravity.

In this queer erotic horror visual novel, you train Miss Radcliffe in the ways of perversion as a slow burn while seeking out mysteries that will immediately lead to your own erotic peril.

  • Play as a man, woman, or nonbinary person, choosing your anatomy and presentation. 
  • Find yourself in both dominant and submissive situations.
  • Meet human sex partners with a variety of genders, body types, races, and sexual interests.
  • Encounter monster partners that are weird and scary instead of humans with ears and tails.
  • Experience horror heavily inspired by Lovecraft, but with all of the racist gross stuff replaced with sexy gross stuff.
  • No jump scares, but occasional sudden transitions and many challenging ideas.

Content warning: this game is intended for adults. It contains explicit images and text. If you are not of legal age to view such things where you live, you may not download the game. Additionally, please review the themes below.


The story is captivating and the author certainly has a wonderful sense of pacing: corruption doesn't occur in a vacuum, but intermittently around quests and discovery of the strange world you've landed in.
