CONCEPTION II: CHILDREN OF THE SEVEN STARS ★★★ 16 cert, Atlus, 3DS (also PS Vita)
Imagine you’re a teenager with the power to change the world. In Conception II, you take on the role of a boy who bears the mark of the star god and has the power to create the next generation of “star children” – warriors who fight monsters. You are literally known as “God’s Gift”. It’s enough to give you a complex of some sort. There are demonic monsters to fight, one of which has already killed your player’s sister on her wedding day. God’s Gift agrees to attend a special school for others with similar abilities. The roleplaying game pits you against the monsters, which you must defeat by creating those aforementioned warriors by collaborating with the school’s seven strongest girls. It’s more innocent than it sounds. Not only will you have to do all the usual stuff that dating sims require, you’ll also have to creep around dungeons and Dusk Circles to kill off monsters. Bizarrely fun.
