Today’s Niche Spotlight is My Lovely Wife, a game that blends management and dating sim mechanics by GameChanger Studio, Toge Productions, and Neon Doctrine.
My Lovely Wife is a spiritual successor to the developers’ previous game, My Lovely Daughter, and deals with similar themes and mechanics. You play as Jake, a grieving widower still coming to terms with his wife’s unexpected and tragic death. A mysterious man grants him the knowledge to summon succubi and perform esoteric rites in an attempt to bring his wife back.
Use alchemy and arcane rituals to summon 20 different alluring succubi servants. Assign them to tasks, interact with them, and get them to fall in love with you…then sacrifice them using forbidden magics to create a vessel to house your dead wife’s soul. Make dark and difficult choices to achieve over 40 endings.
