This is an experimental RenpyWeb build of our game Sanguine Rose. Renpy games aren't made to be played in browser, and as such there may be some technical difficulties or bugs. We've also removed sound from the game to reduce filesize, since the game will not load until it has finished downloading. We do not recommend trying to access fullscreen mode since it can cause resizing issues.

If you want to play with sound and without any jittering, download the latest build on our Itch.io: https://duskyhallows.itch.io/sanguine-rose
or support us on Patreon to gain access to the latest build and additional epilogue scenes: https://www.patreon.com/DuskyHallows

Sanguine Rose is an adult Visual Novel by Dusky Hallows Studio. The game revolves around the seductive and dominating High General Carmen Valentine and the mercenaries who have successfully captured her. This build (albeit muted) contains the full three days of content. There's 149 items in the gallery to unlock, so be sure to play through the game several times to find every route!


Finally, if you want to see more Renpy games ported to HTML5 (and for the bugs to go away) consider supporting Beuc: https://www.patreon.com/Beuc

They're working with PyTom (the developer of Python) to make this possible. I don't know if bringing porn games to the masses was their goal, but it's a noble endeavour either way!

I am playing version from itch.io v 3.1.0, so my review is not specifically about this version here. I just want to recommend this game that is easily one of the best adult games I have ever played. If you are into bondage, power play and fantasy, this is your game. It is extremely well written. And some of the artwork is simply breathtaking! Only downside is that it could do with a little polish here and there (for example, some of the artwort is splendid, while other artwork is not at the same level of excellence; a few spelling mistakes in the dialogue; the dialogue is sometimes not well represented by what's displayed on screen etc.).

All in all, an excellent game of very high quality!

I can’t play it on my iPad anyone have any idea how I could play it?

Are we gonna see these characters again or is it a one time thing? i personally would like to see them again

We might be returning to them in a future project, but for our next project we're going to go for a more contemporary setting to refresh ourselves. - Hallows

Heartily approve of all of the actual choices and alternate paths. Also amazing artwork.

This is certainly a memorable game with a unique story and a remarkable and well-developed antagonist in General Valentine. With that said, however, I found myself more in agreement with monalisasimilie's critical review than the rest which were so full of well-deserved praise. Don't get me wrong: Sanguine Rose is a good game and one I would recommend to others. Still, I found it extremely frustrating how I was unable to make choices in certain key moments. monalisasimilie didn't remember the tea scene quite right, at least not the one I saw, but I've never loathed a character more than Roman at that moment when he sees Crow drugging the tea and decides to ignore it despite his knowledge that Crow is not loyal. The fundamental trouble is that Roman is in no way suited to a battle of wits (or any other sort of battle) with General Valentine. He is foolish, impulsive, overly trusting, and lacks the charisma needed to inspire loyalty in others. Unfortunately, he's the only player character we've got.

I suspect people that play the betrayed route first may not enjoy the game as much as others. In part, that's because it is so vivid and involving. Unfortunately, it's very hard to see the characters in the same way once you've seen them betray you so dramatically. What sort of future could Roman and Crow have together when she can be so easily seduced and influenced? As for Markus, he's less Pretty Boy Floyd and more Coward Robert Ford in my mind. He'd certainly betray Roman in the future if he deemed it advantageous...not exactly the sort of person I'd like in my criminal gang. No doubt they'd still end up looking shocked when they stand over Roman's corpse after some future betrayal; they've definitely got that part down. On the other hand, Glasha's loyalty is so strong it's hard to understand. Maybe Roman and Glasha's past really does explain it, but it looked a lot like love to me. Perhaps it's another manifestation of Roman's foolishness that he can't see it. I personally would have loved a "Red Wedding" type ending where Roman and Glasha figure out Carmen's plan, slaughter everyone, and ride off into the sunset together...in fact, I still hope that route is there somewhere and I just haven't found it yet. Maybe this game will get me into writing fanfiction, who knows?
