Don’t judge me. That’s hurtful.
Criminal Girls: Invite Only is a curious little dungeon crawler by Nippon Ichi Software. As such, the game comes with a lot of caveats typical of the genre and the developer. And, just to get this out of the way upfront so you can get back to judging me with your stern eyes: yes, this is that game with the BDSM character development system. But the thing about that is — well, we’ll get to that.
First off, we should talk about what the game actually is. In Criminal Girls, the player assumes the role of a young temp worker whose new job turns out to be Hell. I mean actual, literal Hell. The assignment is to guide the souls of a group of sinners along the path to redemption; since these were only borderline sinners, they have the chance to atone for their sins and be reborn, and it’s up to the player to navigate them through the four trials they have to face on their way back to the mortal world. And in an astonishing coincidence, they’re all nubile young women!
