I don’t know what to say about Nicolau Chaud’s Polymorphous Perversity. That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to say about it; quite the opposite, in fact! It’s just that I went in to the RPG expecting a commentary on human sexuality, some reveal of a deeper truth. I was looking to explore the psychology of sex and the libido, as Chaud has a background in psychology.
The problem with saying something about this game is that what I have to say is difficult. Worse, it’s subjective; my first ten minutes with the game left me feeling very uncomfortable. My final ten minutes with the game left me annoyed. There is a lot to say about wading through the gray mud of that journey, so I’ll just start at the beginning.
