This guy literally spent a whole year learning from scratch how to code and design games, actually made a really charming game, and then gave it away for free.
Just to spur people into making more art of sharp-dressed demon girls.

The game is pretty… snarky, in a meta way.
Instead of your classic succubus leotards and bikinis, they're all in designer suits. Basically none of them actually want to fuck you, but want to fuck with you, a subtle but very crucial difference. Instead of your standard anime-esque Kazuma Sato lookalike, you're an American 80s musclebro in a disco suit.
It uses "waifu" in order to grab your inner memelord's attention, then spins off another direction to form its own charming identity
