For the sake of every bodies time I from now on I will call the game "MGWGSN-V1".

So MGWGSN-V1 is for VNs what DID RPG is for RPGs (the RPG Maker ones, to be specific). The creator himself calls it a Sound Novel which basically means that the heroins lines are voiced and there are sound effects. This basically means a fancier type of a VN. The art is done by SharpFFFFFF.

We follow the adventures of Western Girls who are a type of Mahou Shoujo/Magical Girls. I don't think there ever was a 'Western' spin on the Mahou Shoujo genre, in which case the author gets an additional point for an original idea. Well, maybe original is taking it too far, after all, there are three girls called Red Blue and Yellow (the tittle Ranger just pops in your head).

So being who they are they fight some evil organization of robots who are doing the standard shtick of being evil etc. We all been around the block on this one people, move along. But as sorta hinted earlier by mentioning "DID RPG" this VN centers on DID/Bondage. So as you expect the robots will have to capture our heroins, thankfully the creator made them genre savvy, so when they actually get around to do the deed they look competent. From this point on the girls will have some tough times while trying to free themselves and turn the table on the robots. It really won't be easy.

Just so you know, this VN has no choices to pick, but a single linear path to follow.

An additional point in the game favor comes from it's soundtrack, which is very good and even has that one song with the cowbells that very catchy. You can also expect a lot of high quality moaning into gags - so good.

Overall this is probably the best DID/Bondage VN in existence (not that there are that many to begin with, if any at all). Bottom line is this, it was worth the full price of 25$ I paid for it and I'm eagerly anticipating Vol.2.

I feel obliged to acknowledge that this is probably the first genuine game about roaming the countryside and kidnapping females that doesn't fall flat on its face contentwise. And that for only around 10$ which is a steal, even for someone of my very limited resources.

As the description for this game implies this is a DID-centric game where you play as the a certain turban-wearing individual that kidnaps girls in a your-typical-fantasy setting. Your victims range from ordinary village-girls, town-girls, knight-girls etc. up to a large variety of other mystical creatures.

The gameplay is what one expects from a RPG-Creator, gets the job done. Although I have to admit a that playing a RPG - that feels like a lot like the other RPGs - and finally being allowed to take captive that smug, annoying *insert here the cliché fantasy character of your desire* instead of outright slaying her (insufficient punishment most of the time) has a certain charm.

One warning thought, as soon as you start this game your "got to catch them all" mode will activate itself. If you had some other plans in mind for the immediate future - like escaping from a burning building - well, stuff like that can always wait until tomorrow. Not to say you will need a whole day to beat this game, it's not really 'grindy' (there is also a "add +1000 to all stats" cheat item you can get easily enough), just enough to pose a challenge and keep you on your toes.

If you don't know Japanese you will be unable to capture all the 29 girls (there were 26 girls before the 1.2 patch - it's a good idea to have a dlsite account for easy re-download in case the creator decides do add some more content in the future) as some precise stuff you have to do is mentioned in the dialog.

Thankfully, you can always count on some anon on some board to do the translation of a walkthrough.
