Explore the twisted wonderland to find Alice in Eeny, meeny, miny, moe?’s BLACKSOULS II, a dark fantasy parody RPG inspired by fairy tales and modern action RPGs.
BLACKSOULS II is a dark fantasy RPG where you play as either the father, brother, or son of Alice. One day you and Alice are resting by a tree, until you fall asleep in her lap and wake up to her absence. Before you can look around to find her, the ground crumbles and you fall to the depths of Wonderland, a twisted world filled with mindless monsters and unusual girls.
Throughout the game you will be exploring a semi-open world in search of Alice. The game is brutal and filled with enemies, traps, and esoteric mysteries. Many gameplay mechanics in BLACKSOULS II are inspired by From Software’s recent ARPGs. You gain souls by defeating enemies, which can be spent as currency but drop to the ground upon your death. At the same time dying weakens your character until you use special items or defeat a boss. There are bonfires you can teleport from, and many other items you will recognize from the likes of the Dark Souls and Bloodborne franchises.
However, these designs have been re-imagined for a turn-based RPG. Running into a monster will transition to an active time battle screen, where each second characters load their action bar at the speed dependent on their agility. Once your own bar fills, you can use your actions. Consuming items doesn't end your turn, but attacking or using skills like dodge does. Which skills you can use depends on the equipment you're using, mainly your weapons. The only exceptions to this are spells, which you have to learn independently of your equipment.
During your adventure in BLACKSOULS II you will meet thirty-four heroines inspired by fairy tales, as well as characters from the classic fantasy novel “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. You can enter into a covenant with these girls to improve your relationship, but also have the option to rape and enslave them, or kill them outright. While all NPCs can be killed, doing so will decrease your SEN, changing the world around you. This statistic can be recovered through the use of drugs or by having sex with girls. With that said, sexual content in BLACKSOULS II is optional, and can be disabled during character creation. The game contains a total of 117 base CGs, not including their variants.
You can purchase BLACKSOULS II on DLsite for $15.39 (estimated from ¥1,650). A lengthy demo can be found on the store page.
To make sure that the game installs and plays properly, you may have to configure your system to the Japanese locale. DLsite offers a handy guide on how to do so, which is available here.
