the physicality of this is insane ive never experienced such palpable writing i could smell the air

This game was fantastic, especially for what it set out to be as a -mostly really bad- day in the life of an artificial girl who has to pay rent and make difficult decisions to do so. I got the 'dad' ending and it left me with a warm but really hollow feeling, and that's exactly what I want out of stories like this one. 

I love Ines and I really love the way everything was presented,  the prose and music and everything.

I read Victim Doll with a friend last weekend. I related immensely to Ines' sexual frustration and genderlessness. The story was so traumatic it gave me a stomach ache, and I loved it, all the same. Victim Doll is unmarketable, disgusting, sincere, evocative, thought-provoking, romantic, tragic.

It sat in me like a brick, and I am still going back to it and re-reading it, and discussing it with friends.

Victim Doll will make you feel - and that is how you know it is a masterfully executed work.

it's been a day since i played this and i'm still thinking about it. i think it's a very poignant and unnerving exploration of the relationships of sex/violence and pain/pleasure under capitalism.

This is fantastic. It was a little strange with dirk, but everything else really spoke to the masochist in me. The "denial" ending was a little heart-wrenching, however the "papa" ending made me feel quite warm. 10/10

adored this, the violence is beautifully sensual but also loved the grim economics of it, reminded me of like Folding Beijing and uh, Marx, naturally. a beautiful mechanical flower of flesh and blood.

This just shook me to my core.
Fantastic blend of existential horror and erotica.

It's a great story but also, importantly, vitally: it's hot as hell

(+5)

just one of those pieces that make me so deeply appreciate the artform because i cant articulate what made it so amazing to experience. incredible

This has really stuck with me, an incredible game talking about some heavy, real shit. 10/10

This game is so beautifully and viscerally obscene and heart-wrenching, I'm a little obsessed. I haven't read anything else quite like it

(+5)

this is obscenely good. the emotion is so immediate and raw it almost feels like you shouldn't be allowed to play it for fear of intruding on something. i want to bite into this game like a peach.

I didn't know I needed something like this...

(+3)

That was fantastic. This guy can WRITE.

(+6)

bloody hell. I had to go back and replay the other doll opportunity because of how... obscene the writing was in this. masterful work, the ambience and tediousness of the world Ines lives in is really felt.

(+6)

i've never felt so viscerally... something in my entire life. i want to write my college thesis on this game. thank you for making it.

1: there are only two domino club members who know dutch and i am not the fluent one here lol. 2: this was good in like...a painful way.

(+6)

idk. this whole story was like a comforting nostalgic feeling perhaps because of my past or just a copying mechanism but I overall really enjoyed the experience of it, how it was put and so on. Short and simple although nothing truly is.
