It's a good thing the internet doesn't have a word limit, because Analogue: A Hate Story creator Christine Love has announced My Twin Brother Made Me Crossdress As Him And Now I Have To Deal With A Geeky Stalker And A Domme Beauty Who Want Me In A Bind!! Or, to give it its much-needed abridged title, Ladykiller in a Bind. Described as an "erotic visual novel about social manipulation and girls tying up other girls", the game will explore relationships in a way that highlights the importance of (kinky) sex.

How happy I was to learn that Hate Plus was no mere director's cut edition of visual novel-esque adventure game Analogue: A Hate Story, as its name suggested. Back in April, we confirmed that it's actually a full sequel filled with more hate than ever before, and we now know that it'll be here in exactly two weeks. Now, for the celebratory trailer.

Christine Love, creator of "dark visual novel" Analogue: A Hate Story, has been tweeting and tumbling about "Hate Plus" for months. Slight problem: it was never entirely clear exactly what it was. And while, as a deeply disorganised person, I wholly approve of the haphazard approach to game promotion, it's nice to get official word that Hate Plus will be a full sequel to Analogue, delving further into the history of the spaceship Mugunghwa.

The danger of blending fiction and interactivity is that both elements could suffer: the fiction gets chopped into pieces and shuffled out of order, while the interactivity becomes the ludic equivalent of page-turning, throwing players the odd puzzle to keep them paying attention, and letting them loose on a decision every few paragraphs to maintain the illusion of agency.
