Manor of Mystic Courtesans is lewd visual novel about hookin' up with glorified prostitutes.
You smash that "Enter" key and read, read, read. Beyond a lady who spouts exposition, there is little player interactivity in this visual novel.
You're the newest patron of the Manor of Mystic Courtesans. . . that's a mouthful. You're joined by Hostess Maria Sainte, who serves as a sort of tour guide and head honcho. The Manor a sanctuary of hedonism, a menagerie of exotic species to suit any and all's sexual whims. Located between dimensions, the Manor resides in a small world which serves as a place of trade and commerce. Hostess Maria explains that she's an apprentice, and she's training to be a bonafide Courtesan (who serve as sexual partners).

Though the titlescreen looked appealing, though a tad cluttered. From "Config" dialogue and audio settings can be adjusted, and fullscreen display toggled. Speaking of fullscreen, this game was designed in a four-to-three ratio, which means that maximizing the application will result in a pair of ugly black bars. The "Gallery" will allow you to review CGs, scenes and sound tracks. "About this Project" and "Release Notes" are places where the author discusses the game and its progress via the in-game interface.
- The Goods - All of the artwork looks great! Each sex scene is loaded with (static) CGs, with many, many variants to show progress (such as money shots). Problem being, the CGs are both censored and in rendered in an awkward aspect ratio. Expect female-on-female/male-on-female sexual intercourse.
If you don't mind censorship, this is a great set (of ten) sexy scenes with tons of sexy CGs. However, there is no interaction during sexy time, and the story is strictly linear (once a Courtesan is selected). For the playtime, I think this game is overpriced. But for the CGs, wowee. 'nuff said.
