Release date: 2006 April 21th
Rapelay (レイプレイ in Japanese) is a 3D hentai game made by Illusion Soft|Illusion. It was released on April 21, 2006. The game consists of an improved 3D engine, and is mainly played through mouse control. The main story of Rapelay is shorter than those of Illusion's previous games, but it allegedly has more replay value than Illusion's previous games. Rapelay also has a "nakadashi" (creampie) counter.
The player plays as Kimura Masaya, a chikan - a pervert - who frequently fondles women in crowded subway trains. One day, a high school girl named Kiryuu Aoi has Masaya arrested for molesting her. Freed after only a day by his influential father, Masaya plans to exact his revenge on the girl. Tailing her, he discovers that she lives with her sister and their widowed mother. Putting plans into motion, his first victim is Manaka, Aoi's younger sister; he rapes her in a public bathroom. His next target is Yuuko, the mother of the two girls, whom he rapes in a secluded park. Aoi is Masaya's final target, the girl who had him turned in to the police. He forces her to go with him to a hotel - owned by his father - after coercing her with photos taken of her mother, then ties her up and rapes her.
After the player completes the initial storyline mode, the player gets to rape them in any situation of his choosing; this is the source of the enhanced replay value in RapeLay (and also the source of the pun in its name). This mode is called Training mode. In this training mode you can "break" each of the three women in nine different ways. Once they are fully broken, the girl will no longer resist your requests during training mode.
- Kimura Masaya 鬼村将哉:
The protagonist, aka the rapist. This is the role the player takes in the game. Aoi's actions got him caught afoul of the law, and he is now pissed and bent on taking revenge, personally. His father, an influential personage, was responsible for his quick release from the authorities. Also, the hotel room location in the game is said to belong to the hotel chain owned by him.
- Kiryuu Manaka 桐生愛花 (VA: Maki Izumi):
The pre-teen with the short black hair who wears a blue dress, she is Aoi's younger sister. The player can make her wear a cat ears hair accessory to force her to make cat sounds. Cute and adorable, her appeal can be summed up in one word: lolicon.
- Kiryuu Yuuko 桐生夕子 (VA: Kaori):
The busty, dyed-blonde mother of the two girls. Yuuko can be made to wear her glasses to force her to make virgin/nerd sound effects. She attempts to intervene for her daughters, but fails. Less aggressive than her eldest daughter, Yuuko nevertheless still tries to resist you even if only passively.
- Kiryuu Aoi 桐生蒼 (VA: Enokizu Mao):
The seifuku-clad brunette with a ponytail and an attitude who was responsible for your (temporary) incarceration, and the main target of your revenge. You may choose to let her hair down. She is feisty and has a strong will, resisting you even as you attempt to break her.
After completing the short storyline mode, the game leaves the player in an open-ended "sex training" section which constitutes the rest of the game, containing 5 modes, some of which are not available from the start and need to be unlocked. The objective is to break all three girls, achieved by getting all the objective boxes for each girl to light up. All of the objectives are accomplishable via the 2P mode, except for "shame" which is accomplished in chikan mode.
In this mode the player can't touch the girl. You can only rotate the camera around her and do the action "Prayer" by right-clicking on the "Character" button, this will cast wind and lift her skirt. After the player has done some achievements he will be able to undress her. There's another option wich allow you to go in Chikan mode, however it'll be possible only in the short story mode and will be replaced by a "Leave" command afterwards.
This is basically a repeat of the initial encounter on the train, where the player gets to partially undress and molest one of the girls.
In this option, the player can rape any of the three girls. The main character is in danger of being killed under a certain particular circumstance; other than that there are no other restrictions. There is also an option of different rape positions including oral rape; whatever the position, the player can use the mouse wheel to control the rape acts. There is also a danger of getting a girl pregnant if the player selects her in this mode during her "danger" days (indicated by her facial portrait showing eyes closed).
This is essentially a gang-rape mode. The player is restricted to one position, with four males assaulting the girl. The area restrictions for this mode are limited to locations with small space.
Also known as 3P or 4P mode. In this mode, the main character is able to rape two or three girls at once. This mode is locked until the player has broken at least two of the girls.
This mode is not playable, and can be only viewed in the Botuplay Extra CD. The idea is that the Neko-Kappa mode allows the player to have one or two girls tied up in bondage and assaulting them in that position.
Despite being an open-ended game with no real story conclusion, there are two possible negative circumstances which will force the game to end.
The main character impregnates at least one of the girls and decides to keep the child. The result is having the main character thrown onto the train tracks after a certain number of days afterwards. This ending is avoidable even if you do get a girl pregnant - at some point, the game will ask the player whether he wishes the girl to have an abortion.
If the player has not broken Aoi, taking her in the cowgirl position may leave you open to a surprise stabbing. She will continue stabbing you and laughing hysterically, while the scene fades to black.
As with most Illusion Games, there are some alterations that can be applied to change nearly every aspect of the game. The ability to alter game files, while handy, can also render the game unplayable, this can be caused by numerous things:
- Corrupt files
- Incompatible files
- Loss of files
There are also other factors that can change the outcome of a Modification (Also known as "mod").
Modifying Game FilesEdit
While the Illusion modding community is very large, and has innumerable contributors, it would not exist without the help of a handful of people, who made it possible for game files to be unpacked, repacked, hacked & changed to ones choosing.
There are a few basic tools needed to begin modding the game:
- 7zip.exe (command line CODEC program (See Notes))
- IluPak.exe (unpacks/packs Illusion Game files, .pp files (See Notes))
- xx_dep.exe (unpacks .xx files from unpacked .pp files (See Notes))
- xx_rep.exe (packs unpacked files from a .xx file, opposite of xx_dep.exe (See Notes))
7zip.exe can be obtained from a full distribution of 7-Zip (free).
IluPak.exe can be found on popular Hentai forum HongFire. The files are extracted in a structured way, i.e, if you were to unpack "RPP_00.pp", IluPak.exe would extract all of the files inside of RPP_00.pp into a directory named "RPP_00". Every file that you wish to edit MUST replace the originally extracted files location, or else it will not read the files. Once you have finished modifying the files inside of the directory, you can repack "RPP_00.pp" by dropping the folder "RPP_00" onto IluPak.exe, which will change the name of the old "RPP_00.pp" to "RPP_00.bak", and create a new "RPP_00.pp".
xx_dep.execan be found on popular Hentai forum HongFire. It works in the same way as IluPak.exe, in that you drop a .xx file (after you unpack it from a .pp file) onto the program, and it creates a folder with the .xx files contents. Once the editing is done, it is slightly different, you drop the directory onto xx_rep.exe instead of onto the xx_dep.exe. Once the .xx file is created, you then pack it into a new .pp file with IluPak.exe.
xx_rep.exe can be found on popular Hentai forum HongFire. It does the exact opposite of above, it packs an unpacked folder (made from a .xx file dropped into xx_dep.exe) into a new .xx file, to be used in an unpacked .pp folder.
Update as of March 2011: IluPak appears to be unavailable; use the Illusion company game-specific tools instead (also on the HongFire forums) to extract files from RapeLay's *.pp archive files.
