Living Together With Fox Demon, a game where you can’t seem to help yourself and she can’t seem to stop wanting more of it.
I wanted to review a newer game that had come up on Steam that others were seemingly playing as well and giving out good ratings, and this was it. I was hopeful. I mean, I’ve played a lot of VNs, but not too many that cater to the perverted, horny minds out there.
This sexual thing between the two characters almost seemed non-consensual in the beginning…because it sort of was.
The guy you’re playing as practically forces himself upon her while she’s whining or pleading at him to stop. And of course he doesn’t. So that might be an automatic turn-off for certain people. I didn’t exactly like it myself, but the two of them finally get going to each other’s sexual needs.
But that start really sticks with you, I think.

What is this page?
This is an in-depth critique of the game Living Together With Fox Demon. I go all in with my review by picking apart the game, piece by piece. By doing this, I try to help not only the devs that created the games, but also future aspiring devs by giving my viewpoint on everything as an avid gamer, but please understand…
There may be spoilers.
Is there a Patreon playthrough of this game?
This is a static image.
But that’s okay because it’s beautiful to look at. Just the color scheme of the blue background compliments the white and off-tint of blue of Vivi’s outfit. You also get a look of the art style when it comes to the character models.
I could go without the giant snowflakes.
Personally, I really like the font that they chose, as it has that Japanese look to it, but on the other hand, it also reminds me more of a samurai feel. Now, there is a katana (I believe) in the game, so maybe it still fits into that theme, but I don’t know.
I do enjoy the colors they placed into the “Fox Demon’ though. They’ve made it really pop.
I wish there was an “a” in the title.
Start your life with a hesitant, yet frisky fox demon.
In case you don’t get through the full the and need to save.
Even if you haven’t played the game yet, this section holds a lot of the lewd screenshots, in case you want to hop in on the juicy stuff first.
The settings screen is very basic, which is nice, but I wish they could’ve stuck with the color scheme of the starting screen. Blues and whites. Instead, they went for a generic look that doesn’t match the theme of the game at all.
For when you can’t stand yourself and the games you play anymore.
You encountered a snowstorm while climbing a snowy mountain. You saved an injured fox demon in the snow and brought her back home to start a sweet life together…
Speaking of fox demons, check out this adorable white fox kitsune that seems to have stumbled upon the post. She looks a little lost, but that’s okay, because the two characters in the game seemed a little lost in that beginning blizzard.
Don’t let her looks fool you, she’d probably bite your face off.
I’d say around 2.5 hours, but probably less if you don’t plan on listening to the dialogue and prefer to read at your proper pace. For me, I’m a pretty fast reader and so I just continued through the text even while Vivi continued talking.
Your play time might be slower or faster, depending on this.
Also your play time might be different depending on how much “play time” you plan on doing during the game. If any.
Unless you’re coming back because you’re in a certain mood and want to check out the Memories section of the game in the settings, I don’t see someone coming back to it.
It’s not quite your basic visual novel where you’re enjoying a pleasant atmospheric background sound while reading through a script, as you actually get options within the game to do things.
Such as having a conversation, interacting with the fox demon, going out, or having sex with her.
This also comes with meters on how high or low Vivi’s stress, feelings, and positive feelings.
It’s not too complex, but still offers more than simple text and visuals.
While technically you don’t have any items or anything to interact with, you do get choices every now and then, and depending on which one you choose will decide the stress and feelings of your fox demon.
Well you can’t say the characters don’t look different, because they definitely do. You’ve got the fox girl you’re banging, and then the neko chick, plus a raven demon, and there’s a couple other “characters” that aren’t really humanoid in nature, but what do you expect when you’re playing a game that has demons in it?
As a character, you yourself don’t do any talking.
As for the characters like Vivi and the other demons, I enjoyed the voice actors that were chosen for the roles. And for a NSFW visual novel revolving around sex, of course Vivi is going to be a bit vocal when things between characters become a bit frisky.
I’ll say I didn’t mind the moaning. I’ve definitely played other visual novels that went too far with it.
The subtitles are at the bottom section of the screen where there’s a white transparent background. The words are easy to read thanks to the dark grey stroke outline around the font as well.
You’re also able to hide the dialogue, in case you simply want to look at the pretty picture.
One thing that annoyed the heck out of me though were all the ellipses. Like, holy crap. These characters pause in their sentences way too often making for an awkward and frustrating read. And I’m mainly saying that as someone who enjoys reading books.
Seriously, can you image reading a book with “…” throughout every dialogue or thought.
There are quite a bit of problems regarding the word usage in some areas, due to translation, so don’t expect everything to be right as you read it.
Sometimes there’s a “can’t” when it should’ve been “can.” Other times there’s at least one word missing from a sentence that might give you pause.
So the background visuals themselves sometimes look pretty generic–like when you’re inside the house–but that doesn’t necessarily make them terrible. After all, you’re not exactly focusing on them when you play the game, but…I kind of wish homes showed more personality in these types of games, you know?
Like, who actually lives in a plain generic bedroom? Come on.
Other backgrounds like the park are a lot nicer to look at.
As for the art style of the characters–they’ve all got a soft-shaded style to them and they’re all pretty basic in the shading department. If I’m being honest, Vivi’s nipples look like they’ve had more effort put into their looks than the overall character model.
I love how their eyes look too though.
I felt like the background music was something nice to listen to as I read what was going on. It also changes from time to time, but I never really focused on it, so I can’t say it was a beautiful masterpiece to my ears.
It’s not the best visual novel out there for you cat girl fanatics, but if you have a foot fetish, it’ll definitely cater to you. It has a lot of flaws to it, and one of the bigger ones I noticed after “finishing” it was the fact that it’s technically not even a complete storyline yet.
So as of August 15, 2021, it’s not a complete visual novel. The devs still need to add more to the story.
I don’t understand why they released it if that’s the case, but…just one of many problems.
Living Together With Fox Demon
Living together with a fox demon ain't half bad if she can satisfy your kinky, lustful needs, right? Though there is a storyline to this lovefest, it's dampened by the lack of listening on the guy's half and the bad subtitle writing.
