"There are lots of predators out there... stalkers who'd just love to have a taste of someone like you..."

--------

Plot Summary

The graveyard shift at a dingy diner in San Francisco -- that's where MC's story begins. It's just another normal night, or at least it seems to be.

...That is, until a certain mysterious customer stops by, bringing the dangerous attention of a few people with him. When it rains, it pours,
and suddenly MC finds himself in the middle of a war he didn't even know existed... between vampires.

How does MC react to the dark, violent world that opens up before him? That's up to you!

--------

Image


► Genre: Drama, BxB romance, dark modern
► Length: ~60,000 words
► Endings: 8 (4 good, 4 bad)

► Changeable MC personality & interests
► Different dialogue & choices based on personality
► 11 track OST with a dark, urban vibe
► 14 CGs

--------

Ash has been stuck in San Francisco for most of his life. Even though he dreams of becoming a famous artist
(whether in music, digital art, or writing is up to the player!), he currently works the graveyard shift at a run-down little diner.

He's wry, tough, and determined by default, but his personality changes and grows throughout the course of the game!

--------

Image

Despite his intimidating appearance, Dominic prefers to keep to himself. A man of few words, he rarely offers
any insight into his thoughts, but his silence suggests a deep conflict going on beneath the surface.

--------

Image

Isaac reeks of "unscrupulous businessman," and makes no effort to hide it. He seems very out of place among
the rough, unrefined types who hang around San Fran's seedy parts, though there's a good reason for the company he keeps.

--------

Image

Wild, impulsive, bloodthirsty, and Dominic's polar opposite, Rex wears his vampiric nature like a badge of pride.
It's a wonder he's lived as long as he has, considering his reckless nature and insatiable appetite.

Argent Games is a 2-person team comprised of Dovah (writer/programmer/designer) and Gamma (producer/manager). After bonding together over a shared love of things such as games, anime, and Yaoi, we formed Argent Games in 2016.

We have two other BL games available on Steam -- Requiescence and Chess of Blades!

Red Embrace is the third Boy's Love (or yaoi) mystery/romance visual novel game developed by Argent Games, and many more are planned in the future!

Oh yeah, I am definitely buying this! I have been waiting for what feels like so long for this game to come out, so I am going to buy it soon while it is fresh in the store, hehe!

I look forward to playing it and hopefully pitching in with my thoughts sooner or later too. I have high expectations!

Question: do the locked routes ever open, and if so, how? Do you have to replay that route?

They're locked based on your personality, so you may or may not need to replay the entire route (or common) to unlock them, depending on how you've been making your choices.
