The goal of management games is usually making successful business. Maintaining a system of earning money is a great feeling, but in games it is so much easier than in real life. The whole process gives a feeling that you make important decisions. Decisions about facility upgrade, income, outcome, hiring staff members, and so on. You have to create a system what is make profit. Although these games includes much more than management. Engaging stories and characters which mixed with management parts of the games.
Most of sexual management games takes place in historical times when brothels were operated legally. Except in a very few countries brothels are illegal nowadays (editor’s note: Unfortunately). The most interesting exception is maybe Japan, which has semi legal prostitution. According to the law, prostitution is forbidden, but health facilities and love hotels take advantage of legal loopholes and this phenomenon often appears in movies, comics, and sexual adult games too.
I’m making a little recommendation for three games from sexual management game genre. Two of them have historical settings, and third one takes place in modern Japan.
Patronus is in early state yet, but definitely deserves more attention. Setting of the game is an historically accurate ancient Rome. That means no mythology or fantasy creatures in Patronus, however Roman culture and ancient traditions are really engaging and you can experience it yourself as a citizen. According to the plot when you arrive home from military service, you realize your family is in great debt and only way you can earn money is reopen a long time out of service brothel.
Wicked Rouge is also historical, but different a little. The setting was inspired by Edo Japan era (1603-1868) but mostly fictional. Plot also starts with family crisis after your father was killed, as inheritor your responsibility to restore the pleasure house called The Red Patal in city of Hana. Making the business is not enough though as there are rivals who want your death so you can’t manage all conflict without spilling the blood of your enemies. The management part can be a little difficult if this is your first management game but if you’re patient, you will realize that it’s nothing too complicated.
World of Quickie is based on a short visual novel series. Quickie A Love Hotel Story is an expended experience because of game elements like management and dating simulator parts. As games title implies, you manage a love hotel. Love hotels are quite popular in Japan, they work as a regular hotel, except you can rent a room for an hourly or overnight price. The target audience is couples, secret lovers, and people who make a deal to spend a night together. Tone of the game is absolutely feel good, which is a great fit for the story and characters as well.
