"Love is both poison and cure, both knife and remedy."
Rosa's best friend, Catherine, is dead and she is sure Catherine's betrothed, Marquis Guilleme is to blame. Mother says so. Mother says he has to pay with his life. Although, she knows by now Guilleme is no ordinary man. He is tainted. A monster. He cannot be killed by usual means. To seek the best revenge, she must find out all his secrets and destroy him. But will her own dark desires consume her or liberate her?
Mother will tell her what to do.
Set in the romantic 18th century France, play as the third person point of view character of Mother — a unique twist to the visual novel decision making medium. Decide the fate of the characters, scold or console, argue or assent… Just don't be surprised if they start to question your commands.
What people are saying:
"Cupid is, simply put, everything Ive ever asked for from a dramatic EVN. This game will hurt you and you will love it for doing so" - VNs Now
"Cupid is a very ambitious game with the story that it is trying to tell along with all the details that it packs within it. And it does it so well! 10/10" - Hayurika
"Swear to god, if this isn't in my top VNs this year, something will have gone gravely wrong." - Christnenarium, Youtuber
"You know that feeling when you go into a story, expecting it to be another teenager's edgy fantasy, only to have it end up being one of the best things you've ever read? [Cupid is] certainly one of the finest in the medium" - Mimo Le Singe, Vocal Media

Anyone on the edge of trying it, try it out it's really special.
My thoughts on it is that it's really special, dark, gloomy perhaps. It stands out from a lot of other visual novels. Its main "theme" is well done and not cringe. Unfortunately for me I'm going though stuff so I was only able to get through half of the game before breaking up and crying. I'll finish this game and this review hopefully 1 day soon. I wish the ppl that worked on this the best!
is there a guide anywhere? it's high time that I replay this game, but I'd love to go for other paths and endings. it's been years since I've played, though, so I risk making the same choices as my last playthrough.
Okay, so, I literally just finished playing and I made an account just so I could comment, but holy hecc, this is game is twisted. And I love it, and hate it at the same time? I have so many mixed feelings, I feel like I have to take a break and think about what happend for a while.
I've read the comments, and I think the fact that I got ending 3 first time is why I am so shaken, lol.
Awesome game, tho. It's really rare for me to find something that can have some sort of impact on me. 10/10 will play again to see the other endings (and also, the sex scenes were so God damn heavyyy, ackkk, love it).
Hello, I have a request if it's possible. This is by far one of the best VNs I've ever played. Unfortunately my computer is once again out of commission due to a security measure wiping it when I tried to run Windows 7 on it [apparently it wasn't made to run Windows 7] now it's got no OS and is locked out of Windows entirely. All I have left now is my phone.
My request is, could you please consider making an Android version of this game? I would love to continue playing it if possible but I can't afford a Linux installer atm and unfortunately Linux is the only OS I can put on my PC now.
The story itself was beautiful , the psychological tugs and pulls are what made the game so good. The only negative thing about the game was the unnecessarily long dialogue. There were points where they wasted time on things that had no effect on future events. The problem with having overly descriptive text is the way it would un-immerse you from the game. If you were to come out with a remastered version of the game i would recommended keeping the paragraphs short and to the point, if it wasn't added to advance the plot it probably shouldn't be there.
Wow.... I have so many things to say about this VN but I don't know where to even begin... The entire experience was just jarring and heartbreaking, yet absolutely amazing. Thank you for making this game!
Please make this available on Android. I loved this game on PC but now I'm unfortunately lacking a computer all together. All I have is my LG V20 Android phone and I would love to be able to play this game on it. It is one of my favorite Visual Novels.
OKAY Y'ALL I JUST FINISHED PLAYING THROUGH IT FOR THE FIRST TIME AND WOO BOY WHAT A RIDE
its really good. i thought i wasn't going to like the third-person aspect of it but i loved it, as it was done extremely well. many (and i mean MANY) twists and turns. i didn't even understand half of what was going on, but i really really want to play through it more and find out.
its a wild ride. its great. everyone should play it.
this game has so many twists and turns! played this in one sitting. i fell in love with the characters, except mother. i wanted to be nice to rosa and she keeps patronizing her lmao i would def recommend this game to others. caught me by surprise on how dark this game got
This made my dick stand all the way up and I don't even have one. That's how you know it's a good game. Mannnnn, I must have gotten goosebumps at least twenty times while playing . Striking imagery and flawless sound design had me quaking.
It was so much more than I anticipated, and once I started it I physically could not stop it until I reached the end. Giving this piece of artwork away for free should be a crime, but hey, I'm not complaining. 10/10, would play again. Wow was that a ride.
Taleetos, your comment made me laugh so much! I'm glad to know you enjoyed the game, and it is my pleasure to know the story made you grow a phantom appendage. Let's hope this is for the best. Hahaha! Hope you keep supporting us in our future games!
