Quality of Miel games

|Does anyone else find pretty much all Miel games to be extremely lacklustre? I know they are short nukige, and the art is fine, I actually really like it, but the execution could be so much better. Lots of wasted potential, unfortunately.|

|wow the new game boards are active today|
I haven't played an awful lot of them, so could you elaborate? What is it, exactly, that makes them so bad? How are they any worse than the other short nukige studios?
Maybe Miel isn't Waffle or Lune levels of quality, but neither of those companies release monthly. Miel games aren't supposed to be unforgettable experiences; they're supposed to be cheap porn. I think it's unreasonable to expect anything else.

|I like them. They are almost all the same (loser/neet/pervert MC, girls "mindbreaking" in the first scene, womb tatoos, some unhealthy ammount of piss, etc) but its something good enough to pass the time. I specially love their focus on sprites since they really put a lot of work in them (preggo sprites, erotic clothing sprites, cosplay sprites, collar sprites, tatoos sprites, etc) which is above even the big names (I can only think of BISHOP that put that much effort in sprites, most eroges with scenes where the heroine wears a fetishistic wardrove usually will just not show you the sprite and instead will go directly to the H-scenes while the spriteless heroine talks) so for that alone i play their games.|
Also really like some of the writing, like in Gakuentoshi when one of the heroines came up with an school anthem about the MC cock or how in Onahole Kinshi the MC turned a holy womb symbol into a lewd onahole knight womb symbol.
Akira is a great artist too, some of his expressions are silly but the heroines designs are great.
Just wish their other artists were as good as Akira because other than Akagi they are not on his level.Last modified on 2018-09-29 at 04:47

|Miel's nukige focuses on more darker fetishes than their "sister company" Norn (which mainly does vanilla) but not so dark where they reach Black Lilith or Empress levels (where some scenes feel closer to snuff/torture than actual porn).|
Most Miel games usually do have a interesting, fetish focused premise (fantasy worlds, mahou shoujo, idols, housewives etc) but it mostly only serves to justify the different sexual situations the characters end up in.
If their was a common theme I'd say Miel (and Norn) has it seems to be impregnation towards the end and a pregnancy ending (though it's nowhere near the level of say a company like SQUEEZ).
As mentioned above if you want "higher quality" Miel consider playing a BISHOP game. The general consensus seems to be that they do what Miel does but on a large scale and/or with more polish.
Overall I'd say that Miel works because they pump out games so quickly that for every game that you didn't really enjoy they're 2 or 3 you do.Last modified on 2018-09-29 at 08:51

Miel's nukige focuses on more darker fetishes than their "sister company" Norn (which mainly does vanilla) but not so dark where they reach Black Lilith or Empress levelsI would not really call it dark since quite every other violation genre work is more dark. Of course it is still rape very often here, for like the first half of the first scene so rather it is just instant corruption plus lots and lots of debauchery.
The general consensus seems to be that they do what Miel does but on a large scale and with more polish.Eh, I am not really fond of their nearly "nude" (colored) nipples, somehow the color really turns me very off though not that I am a fan of Miel/Norn's preggo either. I'm not really sure either whom I could recommend though instead who is a light dark as Miel and is basically instant corruption. Over BISHOP I sure would choose Tsurumiku and their steady concept of deceit and training. Only piercings thou', no tattoo.
some of his expressions are silly but the heroines designs are great.I ain't sure either what's up with this stupid(/cross-eyes)+small iris Ahegao either... but I suppose one at least one of Dieselmine's artists is worse for me for them nearly if not completely being white (never mind other decisions). I guess Dieselmine and Miel are quite similar in many regards, including instant corruption+preggo but I do not know if I would choose either over the over (and Dieselmine, apart from being maybe a tiny bit more dark, YMMV, also has other concepts, including games) though Miel is a bit better in the art department I think (while Dieselmine more in terms of writing/setting/H)

In hindsight I should have said slightly darker scenarios not fetishes.Last modified on 2018-09-29 at 08:57

|They release about one game per month, I'd say their quality is good enough for such mass-production.|

|I just think they could be a little more creative in regards to CG direction. I mean, when you draw beautiful busty women and you don't even show off their chests properly, or make use of them, it just kind of bothers me.|
I have nothing against the fetishes and themes that they specialise in, and I think they pull those off just fine, and I know how much content they pump out, but I still think it could be done with a little more flair, so that every single game doesn't make you think "didn't I play this already?"
And what is their deal with nipple piercings?
Anyway, I heavily prefer more plot driven, deeper, and longer games from other studios, such as Lune, Waffle, Hadashi Shoujo, etc, but I do enjoy shorter and more shallow ones as well. All in all, I just think that Miel could do some things differently, which may help boosting their popularity. But what do I know, I'm just a regular consumer.Last modified on 2018-09-29 at 14:46

|#4 SQUEEZ never had that good of a record with pregnancy, it was usually reserved for the last CG ending (Be it individual or harem) in their early middle days but by their end the pregnancy content was lacklustre, just look at their last game, Ero Appli, and their new company game, Ero Mahou, where all the pregnancy was a simple harem CG. Heck even impregnation is not really a main them in both of them as more as the natural conclusion to too many naladashis. Miel has had more consistent and better impregnation and pregnancy content where the MC and girls many times talk about pregnancy, the a big orgy where the MC aims to impregnate all the girls, then individual impregnation sex scenes with them, then actual preggo sex scenes with the girls (Some may even be threesome preggo scenes) and finally the final orgy pregnancy sex and lets not forget the nice pregnant sprites (Usually naked, with collars or wearing erotic clothes). It does more for pregnancy in its short while than SQUEEZ in its entirety.|
#5 He means as way of contrasting with Norn since Norn is more about happy pregnancy and lovey dovey sex than many Miel games (Even the most vanillaish Miel game is more fetishistic than most Norn games combined, like Nekura Bishoujo). Like for instance Lune which will make an hypnosis Elf game which by itself is pretty safe but if you compare it to Sukebe Elf it will be pretty dark (But not as dark as say Boku no Elf Oneesan by Lilith).
#8 Considering how much piss there is in recent Miel games i say that the big heads there likes to push their fetishes on the games they make, but its also a pretty standard corruption fare.Last modified on 2018-09-29 at 17:13
