Well-written, fun bit of historical porno, September 18, 2014
by Daemon Pyrate ( Optional. For example, "San Diego, California," "Barcelona, Spain")

Lots of dialogue. Needed more rooms and a longer prologue and epilogue but it was fun. I'm looking forward to playing it with the commentary turned on.
