Cursed Lands is a fantasy RPG by Winter Wolves, and a prequel to Loren: The Amazon Princess. In addition to an adventure with turn-based combat and a "social talent system" that lets the player use bluffs or reason to influence a battle, it also offers six possible romances; four bisexual (two girls, two guys), and one same-sex relationship per gender.
A mysterious mist has sprung from the lands around the Castle of N'Mar, bringing with it an undead blight. As a member of the Empire's Envoy, secretly working with the Grimoire Council, it is the player's job to recruit a team from across Aravorn and put a stop to the evil within the castle.
This visual novel provides examples of:
- Character Customization: Instead of having one or two preset characters, the player can pick their gender, their race (human, elf, half-elf, or dwarf), their profession (scholar, debt collector, bard, or merchant), and their appearance.
- Non-Standard Game Over: It's possible to refuse the offer to assemble a task force to deal with N'Mar, which will lead to a short sequence of someone else being chosen and the player wondering what could have been before being booted to the title screen.
- Previous Player-Character Cameo: Various characters from Loren provide assistance to the player, such as Amazon Queen Karen, Archwizard Apolimesho, and Myrth the Druid.
- Your Cheating Heart: It's possible to romance multiple party members at a time, but it will have repercussions.
