'Red Ops: The First Infection' – Zombies and Yaoi Galore



Gather around folks, it's time for another one of Emily's brutally honest reviews, this time tackling the upcoming zombie apocalypse BL visual novel, "Red Ops: The First Infection" by Vincere Studio. Get your geek goggles on, because this is one title you wouldn't want to miss - or would you? Let's find out. First off just make sure you make this game a part of your Wishlist on Steam!


First off, the premise of the game. We're talking covert ops, secret organizations, and a world teetering on the brink of a zombie apocalypse - the works. The setup seems right out of a blockbuster thriller, and that's not a bad thing at all. Given the developer's claim of an engaging storyline filled with hardships and world-ending events, it sounds like we're in for a wild ride. In a gaming world where every other title claims to be unique, it's refreshing to see something as honest as "zombies, love, and intimacy." Hats off to Vincere Studio for the transparency.


The plot follows Zach and Chris, two agents hired by RED, a private organization, to carry out a covert ops mission. Things take a turn for the worse when they uncover the origins of a deadly man-made virus, one that turns humans into terrifying, man-eating monsters. On the one hand, we have a potential zombie apocalypse looming over humanity, and on the other, we have a BL romance that promises to be just as explosive.


The game boasts over 6 hours of playtime, 25+ CGs, and two love interest routes leading to three different endings. Let's talk about the steamy parts. Red Ops claims to feature 9 NSFW scenes, and get this, even a polyamory scene. Well, isn't that something? They’re not shying away from diving deep into the intimate side of things, which could be either a hit or miss depending on your personal preferences.


The promise of an original soundtrack is an interesting selling point as well. The impact of a well-composed OST on the overall gaming experience cannot be overstated, and it's nice to see that the developers seem to understand this.

With the game still in development and a release date set for late 2024, it's too soon to say whether "Red Ops: The First Infection" will live up to its hype. But one thing's for sure, it's got the potential to offer a unique blend of thrill, romance, and gore.


Digging into the meat and potatoes of the game, you've got an impressive assortment of features and content to look forward to. The promise of over six hours of gameplay sounds solid and should be enough time to fully explore the characters, relationships, and world that Vincere Studio is building. With 25+ CGs excluding variations, the visual content of "Red Ops: The First Infection" looks set to be a feast for the eyes.

The prospect of two love interests or routes coupled with three different endings suggests a game that values player choice and offers replayability. Who doesn't love a good replay? More chances to explore different choices, see how the story can unfold differently, and get more bang for your buck. The nine erotic scenes (explicitly labeled NSFW) seem to indicate the developers aren't shying away from the steamier side of the genre. If you're into hardcore BL, this is a clear selling point.


It's not every day you also see zombies and the world ending in a BL visual novel, and I'm curious to see how it will be handled. Is it going to be tastefully executed or just a gratuitous fan service? Time will tell.


"Red Ops: The First Infection" is a game that appears to have all the potential of being a unique and engaging title in the BL visual novel landscape. With a premise that blends covert ops and zombie apocalypse with LGBTQ+ themes, it's safe to say it's not a run-of-the-mill BL game. It looks promising, as does the depth and complexity of its narrative and characters.


It's clear that Vincere Studio is pouring a lot of effort and passion into creating this game, and it's got me curious and excited. Of course, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, and the final verdict can only come once we get our hands on the actual game. So, fellow BL geeks, watch this space. "Red Ops: The First Infection" is one title you might want to keep your eyes on. You will also see some gameplays from the BLU founders on the BLU YouTube Channel so make sure you subscribe there before launch!


Remember, don't take my word as gospel, but use it as a guide. Try the game for yourself when it comes out, see if it resonates with you. In the world of gaming the key is to keep exploring, keep questioning, and above all, have fun. Till the next review, this is Emily, signing off.
