This is the General Audience Version (SFW) of the game, view adult version here >

In the year of 2066, biologically engineered humanoids known as ‘biots’ make up a large percentage of the workforce.

The protagonist of Synthetic Lover is one such biot and, like the rest of his colleagues, he lives to serve a single purpose – to fulfill his pre-programmed vocation. In his case, that’s to be a companion in an adult entertainment center known as Dollhouse.

Biots are servants who exist as lifeless dolls until being activated upon request, their self-awareness is sealed off by design, taking with it their ability to think or feel of their own free will… That’s how the protagonist’s days go until the chance appearance of an opportunistic thief with a mysterious device in his possession...

Synthetic Lover is a Sci-Fi story about an individual who, unwillingly, finds out what it’s like to be human, to deal with hardships, overwhelming emotions, anxious thoughts, difficult situations and the imperfectness of life. It’s a journey of discovery, finding connection with others, fostering friendships, attempting to remain aware and mindful in the face of adversity and, ultimately, finding love.

Wrote this in a review, so please feel free to ignore it. I just felt I should add it here too:

This beautifully written story feels impactful, no matter what path you take. Be it romance, bromance/friendship, or just tragedy, whatever you want from this game you can get. It can be heartbreaking or heartwarming, that's up to the player.  Any route you choose has excellent writing. 

It hits right in the feels every time. I love it. (Also hate it, because the bad/neutral ends made me cry.  The bad/neutral endings are great for catharsis but bad for keeping your eyes dry).

In short, I love the writing way too much, the voices are fitting, and the art is pretty. What a great game. 

Thank you soo much for the kind words! We really appreciate your feedback and comments! <3

thank you for saying it, dollar is not my currency so it can be kind of expensive for me to buy it and I'm in love with the short version of the game and you might have made me decide on buying it
