Qureate and Orgesta have officially released beat refle on Steam, a rhythm game where you could massage beautiful women in time to the music. To celebrate the release, the game is available for 10% off until August 7.
Beat Refle was originally set to debut on the Nintendo Switch under the title of Massage Freaks. However, it was “delayed indefinitely” on Switch following qureate’s “discussion with concerned parties”. The game attracted attention in Japan by using character names that are similar to members of the real-life idol group Hinatazaka46. The developer later changed the names, but criticism for its overly sexual content emerges.
▍beat refle Story Synopsis
Atsushi Yubihara meets the talking cat Momiji while cleaning the massage parlor formerly run by his late grandfather.
Moments after he attempts to uncover her true identity in spite of his confusion, a loan collector appears to reclaim what his grandfather owes. Fed unreasonable repayment terms, he starts to shrink into himself until Momiji shares with him a most mysterious power…
He has but a single month to make enough money to return what was loaned, marking the start of his troubled everyday life as a masseuse! There’s no time to question his power, or why there’s a talking cat or anything else!
Atsushi must focus on his somewhat very quirky customers and relieve the stress that ails them, all in time for the impending loan repayment!
