Everything (all 12 chapters) is now public for free!
*** YOU MUST START A NEW GAME OR THERE WILL BE ISSUES ***
This is an interactive novel/experience, like my other titles. If you think my hard work is worth at least a dollar, please support me on Patreon! In this project, one plays as either the scientist/programmer Chieko Naru, the security director, Howard Wyatt, or a woman that becomes the first Cereborg (a robot from my universe/lore) named Emily Harbrook. All of my interactive novels fall under the same story arc, this title, chronologically, is the 7th title in the series. Hope you enjoy this, and please "like" any of my projects you enjoy on here!
Fetishes in this title will/do include- Female Sub, Male Sub, Female Dom, F/F, M/F and M/F/F Sex Scenes, mind control, hypnosis, Rape/Non-Consensual, Mind Control, Corruption, Gangbangs, Sex-Toy Play, Incest, Masturbation, Anal Sex (M/F), robots, and images that some may find disturbing! While I like to make people have an erotic experience, I also want that experience to be disturbing in a creepy way. Avoid this project if any of these fetishes are too much for you to handle!
When Chieko Naru created the A.I. known as Cerebrum, she had no idea what would happen. It has come to see humans as insane and does not like the prospect of its creator dying from age, so it has logically deduced that organic life is flawed and must become synthetic. Meanwhile, Howard Wyatt (the older brother of Bo, from the 6th title in the series, Cult of Corruption), hates technology and computers but is smitten with Cheiko. Emily Harbrook has arrived at the complex under the impression that she is going to test a product- but it was an elaborate ruse from Cerebrum. The A.I. is about to initiate its plan to take over the world, and only Chieko and Howard have a chance at stopping it! Or will they become pawns of the robot overlord and help enslave humanity? Play, Cereborg, to find out!
Howard Wyatt, Cheiko Naru, Emily Harbrook, Marv Everett, and many other characters from my intellectual properties!
I remember playing this ages ago when only the incomplete first chapters of each character were ready. Now I finally played the complete game, and it's a beautiful thing. Anaximanes's games are unbeatable in production values and storytelling depth, it's a true multimedia experience. The only problem I see is that sometimes the squick factor overcomes the sexy factor (like in Slugs and Bugs and a few other games), fortunately, this isn't a problem here. It also helps that I have a huge sexbot fetish. :)
It's also true that the fact his games must fit in a grand chronology with his other games causes them to sort of railroad the player into a canonical ending. All other choices are just "bad endings". But I don't really mind this, as I see his games more like immersive stories.
In Cereborg, my favorite chapters are Chieko's and Emily's by far. Howard's are a little bland, but the awesomeness of the other two protagonists more than compensates for it.
All in all, a great story, particularly for fans of robotization and/or Asian protagonists.
I am a big fan of Anaximanes games, corruption themes really turn me on. Also I like how he brings in some characters from his other works into another story.
I Can't wait to see the future chapters for this one (and pretty much all his games lol)
I enjoyed Slugs & Bugs, and this theme is much more to my liking. There are also some references to Slugs & Bugs, which is cute and interesting. It never gets obnoxious, it's very well done. Sadly, there is a total of two choices in three paths at the moment, neither of which is consequential. Hope that's going to be expanded on in the future. Other than that, the photoshopped images really enhance the story and often look really high quality. A good selection of pictures for sure. Bonus points for having a major female Asian character, negative points for making it Marica Hase :3 Hottest path for me was Emily's so far, although the term "USB port" sounds kind of silly. I'd drop the "USB". Thanks a lot for making this!
EDIT: I recall it being said on the hypnopics thread that after the initial chapter, the next update would contain the finished story. When I saw this update, I was quite excited, and then subsequently disappointed that, while it's been some time since I last played and I don't perfectly remember what was included in the first release, there appeared to be very little new content. Anway, hope the writing goes well.
I was a MASSIVE fan of Slugs and Bugs, it was not only one of my favourite pieces of erotic fiction, but it's one of my biggest inspirations when it came down to wanting to write my own erotic game. Having played what content is avaliable, I can safely say that this game is no disapointment. It has what made Slugs and Bugs great, good writting and erotic images. I highly reccomend this to anyone who liked the first, or is interested in the subject to any degree, you won't be disapointed.
While I like the writing, this is (so far) just a story written from 3 different perspectives. There's no choice in there whatsoever.
