At first blush Corruption of Champions appeal among its core fans is pretty obvious. Its logo, featuring the outline of a pair of buxom characters, gives the impression this game isn’t that deep. And, well, that impression isn’t far off base. Corruption of Champions, an erotic fantasy game, isn’t what most players would call inspired. Then again, most players don’t put in hours in this game expecting a riveting fantasy story. Corruption of Champions, however, does belong to a genre of game that does provide just that.
Setting aside the game’s erotic aspect, Corruption of Champions is very much like any number of sword-and-sorcery text-heavy games. These games take their cues from Dungeons and Dragons and try to capture the same nostalgic feeling that makes the board game so popular. The successful ones treat players to a fantasy experience rivaling Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones.
