A Choice-Based Mystery Featuring Anime Boys
Sins of the Everlasting Twilight is a choice-based story and dating sim game developed by Genius Inc available on Android and iOS. You live in an abnormal town where the sun never sets and everyone lives in fear of being locked away in a forbidden tower. Your life changes forever when a stray cat leads you to one of the forbidden towers. While trying to search for the truth about this strange world, you’ll flirt with three human-turned-demon men and discover why you feel so wrong in this sinless world.
Three Handsome Demon Boys for Your Choosing
The game features three different romanceable demon boys. Each has a unique personality and storyline. Zarek, the Sinner of Pride, is an arrogant demon who doesn’t care much for you at the beginning. Theo, the Sinner of Wrath, is a silent yet strategic demon who warms up to you over time. And Noel, the Sinner of Doubt, is the smiling face in the world of emo demon boys. You learn more about why they represent their sins as you follow their individual storylines. Each boy can be romanced and has his own custom ending depending on who you choose.
Easy Gameplay but Poor Energy System
Gameplay is easy: you read the text that appears on screen and tap it to continue onto the next bit of dialogue. There will be moments where the game gives you choices or responses to pick to move the story along. These choices can relate to whether you explore one of the forbidden towers or leave it alone, or if you want to stand up to Zarek when he talks down to you instead of remaining quiet.
Unfortunately, choice moments can be a double-edged sword if you don’t have enough Rubies. Rubies are basically the energy currency for the game. My first major choice that required Rubies took 20 of my 30 starter Rubies. A second choice came a few minutes later and I wasn’t able to do it. You can continue the story without Rubies. The payment is turning down your potential love interests instead of flirting back.
The game’s free way of generating Rubies is a bit tedious. There is a Minigame section where players can spin a slot machine to win coins, which can then be exchanged for Rubies. However, I only ever found myself winning around six to nine coins every four or five spins, and one Ruby equals 12 coins. You can watch a video to earn 30 coins, but you can’t watch a new video for a while afterward. Of course the quick solution to earning Rubies is to pull out your credit card. The cost seems reasonable at first, but you’ll be purchasing loads of them the more you play.
Demon Romance With a Mystery on the Side
Sins of the Everlasting Twilight’s story is a mystery about why your home town is trapped in a time looped day where nobody can sin at all unless they want to be locked away in forbidden towers. However, the game makes it clear that your potential romance with the three demon bad boys is its main focus. If you love dating simulators, then you’ll fall in love with the long gazes and secret hallway rendezvous you share with your demon soulmate. The story of why the town is frozen in time and why Theo, Zarek and Noel were turned into demons is interesting enough to follow it to completion. If your main focus is a mystery to solve and you aren’t in it for the romance, then you shouldn’t play this game.
An Enchanting Adventure With a Few Missteps
Sins of the Everlasting Twilight provides users with an engaging story and romance combination. Theo, Zarek and Noel each serve as fun love interests in their own right. Developer Genius Inc. spent time giving each character their own personalities so players could have variety in their choices.
The lack of any real way to generate Rubies passively or earn them at a faster rate makes it difficult to play the game for long periods of time without spending money. The story and characters can make you feel like you’re being whisked off your feet by a handsome demon. However, it’s difficult to stay engaged when the game keeps asking you to pay for Rubies.
Is It Hardcore?
Sins of the Everlasting Twilight provides a romance and danger-filled adventure for players who are willing to shell out real world money for Rubies every time they decide which anime demon boy they want to date.
