Site Work Failed, But We Didn't Die

Ugh. Still more roadblocks. Need to get an as-yet unknown password from Nay in order to get this sucker changed. For now, please enjoy the mess of a forums we've got, and dream of the forums we will probably never one day have.

It's finally here... MAGGOT BAITS!!!!

Recommended Posts

ive heard about this one for years and its finally here! @Dergonu read it before it was released in the west and warned me of its horrors!

 

normally i wouldnt read this one but it is from a company that i really enjoy, clock up. ive read euphoria and enjoyed that, as well as eroge! sex and games make sexy games, as well as... please, rape me. :notlikemiya:

 

all of these i have enjoyed from the writing to the H and style. now im gonna make the plunge into something truly vile to see if my love for them holds up! call this a test of sorts. a test for what? idk, sanity? pray for me!

As someone who really prefers physical releases I will wait in hopes that this gets a physical release. While I myself do not go to conventions, mainly due to where I live, I think it would be hilarious if they decided to on their conventions sell physical copies of Maggot Baits where you got a vomit bag or a bucket when you buy it.

I've been wanting to read Maggot baits for a while, but gotta wait until I feel confident enough to handle the sanity loss.

The art (the only ClockUp game who's art I genuinely like) and the writing are major draws for me.

Good luck! I'd honestly jump right into it if I had the time to start a VN of its size. Euphoria was a really interesting experience for me despite all its flaws, MB sounds 10 times more extreme, but that makes me even more curious about some things... And about how deep my desensitisation to porn and gore really is. :P

I must say Mangagamer did a good job selling Maggot Baits with their little series of videos:

 

 

 

I think there is a interesting core to Maggot Baits, but I am still probably going to stay away since I have seen the CGs. :makina:

Here is a blog post showing waht you can expect of Maggot Baits:

Okay, so I've decided to torture myself by reading this, despite usually being put off by gore, sexual abuse and whatnot, since I hear the underlying story is supposed to be good.
Is there a guide available somewhere? I don't mind if it's in Japanese as long as I can make out which choices to pick.

This will be a nice change of pace after a lot of vanilla charage lately, still going to finish the ones I'm currently reading before I start this. Clock up really got me interested after Euphoria.

Read some of the works from shintaro kago, can't get worse than that.

What's the deal with pomegranates in this VN? They keep repeating it over and over and over again as a means to describe a color. Is the Japanese script this repetitive or is it a case of the English translator not being very imaginative? There are a whole bunch of other words that could be used instead, but for one reason or another, they just keep referring to everything as "pomegranate". Well, there was that one time when they went with "crimson"... but then they followed it up right away with "like a pomegranate".

Usually when you see something that distinct, and even more so a relatively uncommonly used word, it's in the original Japanese, and the translator has kept it there.

I imagine it's the same thing with Himawari then. I remember them using "crimson" to the point of me considering making it a drinking game but ultimately deciding against it because I didn't want to die from alcohol poisoning.

You want them to be imprecise about their shades of red? What a shameful attitude... :marie:

Spoiler

BTW, I'm just going through the first bad ending... I really didn't anticipate this giant chain of h-scenes to be there, but when the futanari witch x pig one showed up I couldn't help but laugh out loud. I wouldn't expect them to go there and the accompanying CG is just hilarious. :wahaha:

Spoiler

Oh, wow, the second pig has joined in on the fun! I'm just imagining some guro fan trying to masturbate to this and can't stop chuckling to myself. :'D

Spoiler

Done with the "futanari arc", as I'll refer to it for now. That was like 15% of the game? Kind of a borefest to be honest. There were a few interesting lore bits there and creative scenes, but I hoped for slightly more meaningful reveals or a cool punchline to it all. Well, at least I could do some skipping and if other bad endings prove similar, the actual reading time won't be as massive as I feared. Plus I have to admit that the h-scene text is pretty good, feels more meaningful and varied than most of it in euphoria. There it could sometimes devolve into a giant stream of moans or gurgles.

Well, probably going to see more of the story parts when I get back to reading, but I'm definitely finishing for today... It's late as f....

Nah man, he can handle it. After all, he's a giant! Like, 185 cm and 90+ kg! :wahaha:

Ugh, that expository dialogue... Gross. :wafuu:

I guess the writing is very solid overall. But it's also have such weird moments and the witch lore is so finicky... I guess it's no surprise they bend it to fit the fetishes, but I feel that when you center your story around the glorious eroge trope of "the magic of semen", you should at least stick to it, rather than shoving in the virgin fetish at the same time... :P

Edit 2:

Spoiler

"Human cockfighting" is officially my new favourite term from any VN ever. :wahaha:
