Kozue's Strange Journey is a lewd RPG about a group of friends and their investigation of a recent string of abductions.

Gameplay
Kozue’s Strange Journey features a unique battle system and basic time management. As you pursue the main quest line, you will be subjected a number of “Dungeons” where all combat will take place. Battles are turn-based, and not too different from a standard RPG, but there are a few details which stand out. Whenever anyone is hit with a Critical Hit or an attack they are weak to, it will result in a “Knock Down”. A character that is knocked down loses their next turn, and the character that knocked them down gets an extra attack.

Story
Kozue is a member of an elite investigatory squad of magic-slinging schoolgirls. They protect the city from Shadows, malevolent entities that are born of malformed magic. Kozue must find the mastermind behind the Shadow army, while managing her friends and schoolwork. Were you not sold on the first sentence?

Visuals
The titlescreen looks great! However, it is lacking a key feature: most RPGs have some form of "options" or "settings" screen that can be accessed from the title. A "Config" screen can be accessed in-game, where you may adjust audio and display preferences. From "Extra" you may view unlocked CGs and play "dress-up" with the protagonist. The application is irrecoverably fullscreened, though the actual gameplay is confined in a 4:3 window. The English isn't the best, but I'd say ninety-nine percent of the time you'll know what means what.

- The Goods-
There are a whopping sixty-two scenes to unlock, many of which featuring one or more base CGS with variations in art and dialogue based on the characters' attire and experience. The artwork is very high-quality, and on-par for a high-budget title. Additionally, many characters sport nude portraits, allowing you to experience battle and dialogue with bare-breasted heroines. I was impressed by the generosity of unlockable sexual content that can encountered by simply playing the game. Be on the look-out for "H-Scene" markers, and be sure to talk about sex whenever you can! Expect female, female-on-female, and male-on-female sexual content.

Verdict
I highly recommend this game. I had an absolute blast, and it's not often that I play a game where I ask "what happens next?" I would venture to say that this title is worth full price. . . though I still recommend waiting for a light sale. This game is far from perfect, but it boasts a lot of content and frankly depraved content — between glorified non-consensual sex and totally-eighteen actors, I definitely disrecommend this game for sexual prudes. As for the rest of you, I think you'll enjoy the wholesome character interactions, with a (strong) side of depravity.
