Lightning Warrior Raidy II: ~Temple of Desire~ is an adult game developed by ZyX, and later translated to English by G-Collections. It is the sequel to Lightning Warrior Raidy.

Gameplay[edit]

The game combines traditional turn-based battle with elements of visual novels. Unlike its predecessor, it uses limited animation for some scenes instead of simple static images. Maps, which had to be located in the first game, are now automatically created as Raidy progresses through a dungeon.[1]

Plot[edit]

The game takes place one year after the events of Lightning Warrior Raidy in the oasis town of Lake Blue (レイク・ブルー?). Raidy finds the town terrorized.[2]

Characters[edit]

  • Raidy (ライディ?): The protagonist of the game. She is a warrior with a mysterious power to control lightning.[2]
  • Gav: The main antagonist of the story who seems to be stealing the life force of young girls for an unknown but clearly sinister purpose.
  • Setia (セティア?): The beautiful proprietress of the Lake Blue Inn, Setia is a sociable girl who takes an immediate liking to Raidy after she is saved from the clutches of Jammy's bandit gang. She has strong lesbian tendencies.[2][3]
  • Clay (クレイ?): Lake Blue's cheerful town blacksmith. She has a fetish for weapons, and sometimes uses them as masturbation aids.
