Lily's Handmaid is a lewd visual novel about a woman's (involuntary) servitude to royalty.

Gameplay
You can expect gobs of readin', and slammin' that "Space" bar to oblivion. This be a visual novel. There a few different endings to attain, and a little over twenty player choices. Most of the choices did not feel very weighted, and I doubt that they had a significant effect on the ending. . . but I could be wrong. The story is extremely linear.

Story
Our journey begins with a softcore porn: Sarah, a handmaid in training, is enjoying a sensual moment with Olivia, maid-steward of the Duskheart Family. She's learning how to kiss, to please her mistress' sensual desires. Not only that, but she's to hone her martial magic skills, to serve as her bodyguard. A handmaid is a mix between a cleaner, a combatant and an escort.

Huh. Where's my handmaid?

As it turns out, Sarah's in a bit of a pickle: her mother stole (or "borrowed") a large sum of money from the Duskhearts, an ultra-wealthy (and super shady) family. Melissa Duskheart explains that she intended on selling Sarah's soul, but her daughter, Lily Duskheart, insisted that she didn't. Sarah is an exceptional fighter, having bested Lily many times in martial magic duels. Lily wants her to be her handmaid, a lifelong guardian and servant. Between losing her literal soul and being a "domestic servant", she picks the latter option.

If "domestic servitude" means royal treatment for the remainder of my life. . . where's the nearest rich 'n shady family?

Visuals
The title-screen was a clean and pleasant sight, and so was the user interface. Audio, display and text settings can be adjusted from "Options". In the "Gallery", (previously encountered) CGs can be reviewed, with all of their variations. The scenes that accompanied them, however, cannot be reviewed.

- The Goods -
The CGs were beautiful. I loved the art style, and I was saddened by the lack of CGs, especially of the sexual kind. Many of the CGs are used time and time again, a cheap tactic that I find jarring. Expect female nudity and female-on-female sexual intercourse.

Verdict
I recommend this game if you want a cutesy lesbian read with lots or kissing. If you want a steamy lesbian read, you're gonna want to pocket your moneys. . . you're wasting your time.
