DONT DOWNLOAD THIS GAME YET, the possibility exists that one of these files contains a virus. 

Cupid is an amazing visual novel that is both dark, heartbreaking, and engaging. It is geared toward young adults. (For those of you having trouble installing the game or reaching a certain ending, the creators have very comprehensive guides available. Look through their social media posts.)

The beginning of the game describes the life of Rosa, a wandering, poor, orphan who finds refuge in a church after the church's priest brings her in to treat her wounds. She is described as strangely beautiful and confuses the priest by offering apologises to an unknown entity.  [WARNING: indirect spoilers ahead]

Rosa is a captivating character who grows and develops throughout the story. Her best friend, Catherine, is another character who players learn to love, pity, and possibly hate. All the characters in this story are complex, wounded, and searching for one thing: love. For some, the love they seek is from someone else; for others, the love they seek is selflove. 

Cupid is a great game. One of the things that make it great is the way it uses sex. In many romance novels/games/stories, sex is a means to an end. But in this game, sex is both beautiful and terrifying. It is through sex that the truth is revealed and the downfall begins. Overall, we see into the minds of the partners in such a well-versed script that leaves readers hot, bothered, intrigued and fearful for one of the parties involved.

One of the previous comments discussed trigger warnings. This game is not for people who are triggered by: mentions of sexual/verbal abuse, suicide, self-mutilation.

I am going through the same problem... Is it still the same for you? If not can you help me with it?

Same. I installed it and my computer detected a virus. DONT DOWNLOAD THIS! Im currently searching after the problem and i'll have to destroy the virus if i find one, i really hope that this isn't  a real one, that'd be dissapointing.

Yeah I had to scan it with both Avira and Malwarebytes in safe mode and delete all the temp files because both programs only quarantine so I had to delete them manually. I didn't know this so when I just scanned normally the first time I ended up getting more "backdoor viruses" long story short just make sure you delete all the files in temp if you have Avira. My computer seems okay now... I do think it's a real virus. Sucks because I wanted to play the game.

My anti virus programmed scanned everything and deleted the probably infected files, i scanned the others manually but there wasn't something suspicious, but i can't delete three left  pyton files even though im the administrator which is really weird.. I researched about this game but i couldnt find anything ..

Played this game on Steam. Totally twisted and I love it! I really liked the idea of playing as the villain (or anti-hero, depending on route). Very creative, beautiful art and a fascinating tale.

why is it that so many people say the game is sexy? what is sexy about a demon crotch with teeth?!

Okay, I haven't played this game in a while, so you're going to have to remind me when the heck that happens. XD

Respectfully, given the SHEER AMOUNT of heavy/dark content in this game, I think it's in drastic need of some trigger warnings. I wasn't put off by any of it myself, but there is SO MUCH both shown and implied for certain themes that I feel you really should put something, somewhere, so players who may have potentially been through certain things themselves don't have it dumped on their lap unexpectedly... after all, there's a vast difference between what one person is able to handle as "dark" or expects, and another, especially in a game that's so aggressively heavy in certain aspects as this... and no, I don't mean the gore or sex. :)

Other than that, I did enjoy this. The conditions for some of the endings felt a little arbitrary, at least so far as "why does X lead to this ending and not Y", and the big plot twist was sort of predictable, but I liked the cast a lot. I was really impressed by how expressive the characters were, there was so much detail in so many tiny tweaked character expressions that it made them all feel distinct and real. The atmosphere in the scene where Rosa was searching the room in the dark was absolutely fantastic and beautifully terrifying. Sound tends to get neglected in a lot of visual novels, and you did some great things here with yours. It's a little disappointing that so much of the villain's character and motivation is only delved into if you get that chapter seven for the bad endings, because I feel like it really sheds some important light on why they are the way they are, versus simply being a "monster", and it helped me understand them and sympathize for their cynicism far better than the long winded ethics conversations in endings one or two. But it's still a very well executed and engrossing visual novel, and I hope we see more from you soon!
