The content can be regarded as a little mature as the heroine gets into several sexual situations but there aren’t anything too graphic. The quality of the music used in this game is pretty good too!

Naturally, you are afraid that the museum you are working at would be the next target. Unfortunately, it appears that the thieves are interested in your grandfather’s works of art, as your grandfather is the legendary “Japan’s Leonardo da Vinci”.

For some romantic stories and games, the pace can be too fast that it seems unnatural for the characters to fall in love so deeply with each other in a short period of time. This isn’t the case with Love Letter From Thief X as the relationships develop gradually and naturally. We think that Love Letter from Thief X has one of the most unique and entertaining storylines among all the games by Voltage Inc.!
