Conception: Please Give Birth to My Child! (PSP)

RPG 26 April 2012

A Japanese role-playing game featuring elements typical of visual novels. Itsuki Yuge is the protagonist here - a high-school student who is taken to a fantasy world for unknown reasons. The reality he visits is marred by certain dark beings and the protagonist soon learns about the threat they have brought, and that he is the chosen one capable of facing them. Along with thirteen female companions, he sets out on a mission to defeat evil. The game offers a three-dimensional environment and focuses on talking to other characters, exploring the game world and fighting the enemies encountered. Combat is turn-based and the dungeons are randomly generated. Interestingly, the protagonist is capable of having the so-called Star Children with each of his companions. Those become new companions bound to the couple. Star Children however, were gifted with unique abilities which can be used in combat. One has to remember though, that their power depends on the level of intimacy between the protagonist and their female companion, as well as on the "mother's" abilities. Conception: Please Give Birth to My Child offers manga-style visuals, but apparently, the creators were not focused on quality when working on this aspect.
