Blood price is a lewd RPG about an usurped queen and her journey to recover her lost friends, and to defeat the one that took everything away from her.

Gameplay
Blood price is a rather standard RPGMaker experience. You go from point "A" to point "B", grinding for experience and gear between boss fights. Combat is turn-based, and initiative is determined by the way the player character "touches" enemies on the map. Each character possesses a unique set of magic and specialties which provide useful effects. New party members can be summoned by "eggs", although they are not as powerful as story characters. There is a point in the game where you must learn how to play poker — if you don't know how, I suggest aiming for "pairs" and save scumming until you win.

Story
Mina is a young vampire-girl with newfound responsibility. With her father's death, she is now the sole ruler of the Adelhart kingdom. However, her rule does not last very long — her land is swiftly taken by the evil Clown, a mad scientist bent on destruction and mayhem. She narrowly escapes his claws, only to be separated by her friends. Mina must locate her pals and form a fighting force to retake her throne as the rightful ruler of her father's land.

Visuals
The titlescreen looks okay. From "Sound Setting" you may adjust audio preferences. The application is forced fullscreen, although the gameplay is confined to a 4:3 playing area. To my knowledge, there is no way to window the application. There are no other user-preferences to adjust, or even a gallery to review CGS. While a gallery can be obtained after completing the game, it is only accessible in-game.

- The Goods-
There are thirty-six sex scenes to see, along with a few pieces of cut-content. As most of them are tied to losing battles, it's unlikely you'll see very many unless you throw your fights. During my six-hour playthrough, I saw four scenes — one from losing a boss battle and three from prostitution. The vast majority of the sexual content depicts the main protagonist (Mina) being beaten, blackmailed, drowned, groped, or raped by a variety of creatures. I think there's only three consensual sex scenes in the entire game. Mina's bladder is a much like a water balloon, waiting to pop at a moment's notice.

Verdict
I recommend this game when it goes on sale. While there are a lot of great CGs with kinky themes, the core gameplay and delivery of said CGs are deeply flawed. I didn't find Blood price to be terribly entertaining, or remotely challenging. If the gameplay and story were better refined, this could have been a solid RPG, given the depraved and sumptuous gallery. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend Blood price at full price.
