Cupid is an amazing visual novel that is both dark, heartbreaking, and engaging. It is geared toward young adults. (For those of you having trouble installing the game or reaching a certain ending, the creators have very comprehensive guides available. Look through their social media posts.)

The beginning of the game describes the life of Rosa, a wandering, poor, orphan who finds refuge in a church after the church's priest brings her in to treat her wounds. She is described as strangely beautiful and confuses the priest by offering apologises to an unknown entity.  [WARNING: indirect spoilers ahead]

Rosa is a captivating character who grows and develops throughout the story. Her best friend, Catherine, is another character who players learn to love, pity, and possibly hate. All the characters in this story are complex, wounded, and searching for one thing: love. For some, the love they seek is from someone else; for others, the love they seek is selflove. 

Cupid is a great game. One of the things that make it great is the way it uses sex. In many romance novels/games/stories, sex is a means to an end. But in this game, sex is both beautiful and terrifying. It is through sex that the truth is revealed and the downfall begins. Overall, we see into the minds of the partners in such a well-versed script that leaves readers hot, bothered, intrigued and fearful for one of the parties involved.

One of the previous comments discussed trigger warnings. This game is not for people who are triggered by: mentions of sexual/verbal abuse, suicide, self-mutilation.

I think this is a great game for a teen audience. The chilling ambience of the game is set as soon as you open the main menu.

For players that have more experience with visual novels or are a bit more picky about quality of writing, there's a lot of room for improvement for this game's dialogues/script. The dialogue is choppy  and transitions are transparent and predictable. The prologue tries its best to give players a background story and set the mood for the game, but the awkward sentences and half-introductions were distracting. 

Still, this game is a great free game. I did not get through the entire game, but from I have played it's clear a lot of work went into the game's development. The game's thumbnail/cover art is also very well done.

As all the other commenters have echoed, this game is amazing!! The fact that it is free is an even greater surprise! Please, if you enjoyed this game, please tip the creators! This was an amazing well-written story and beautifully crafted. It's easily worth the $20+ you would normally pay for a full visual novel game.
