I hope the LewdCorner community can help me with this one, as I only have the C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\RenPy location, to give me a little bit to go on, but not much luck so far. I had an external HDD fail on me fairly recently, and lost at least 50-100 games there. And while I had started to move my most liked games over to its final location, I was far from being done with the job, when that HDD gave up, as I was trying to weed out the unwanted titles in the process, and I first started playing in 2021. So suffice to say, there was a lot of ground to cover, and that HDD fail was most unwelcome in terms of timing, not to mention everything else I lost when it happened, almost a Terabyte of data in total with the games.

But, and I wanna be clear from the start, just in case, so you who are reading this have full disclosure. There is a small chance that my brain has merged two games together, as it's pretty much impossible to keep track of a total of almost 300 games, that I've played since the start in 2021, and what their names and storylines are, but (most of) my favourites are still with me. But as far as I can remember, the game or games, if it's two games we're talking about, I had either just started playing, or the game itself was in its early stages of development. But here's what I remember, and I will also describe how certain I am about the "correctness" of my memories of the details I bring forward here.

1. The game had a character in it called "Lord Inscetus" or something very close to that, and a play on the word 'Incest' as that's a tag in the game. Practically positive (absolutely sure) about this detail, but not sure on how the character's name was spelled on the screen, but the name itself, almost 100 % sure about that, spelling aside.

2. The MC had a scene where he was at a spooky old church/graveyard, where, if my memory serves right, he witnessed a woman being killed, in a gruesome way. And another possible detail about that scene, is that she was if not kidnapped, brought there against her will, because she knew the man (?) who killed her, and it was kinda like her punishment for talking to the MC about their cult, but I might be wrong about some of these details, though. And I believe also that the game started with a girl having a leg (maybe other limbs too?) cut off by her attacker, but still fighting for her life and crawling away after her initial attack, in the hopes of at least survive, but to no avail. So I think it's safe to say that the game probably has a 'Horror' and a 'Graphic violence' tag, in addition to the 'Incest' one.

3. The MC's intro/narration during the start and setup of the game, talks about the MC having a priest for a (best?) friend, and he was named, but I don't remember that detail, though. But it was "Father + surname" something. And if it's still the same game we're talking about, because this is the point where my memory is starting to be a little bit less reliable, I think the priest supposedly had two daughters, and I remember thinking to myself that if he was a catholic priest, how can he have children, as catholic priests can't get married? So they would have to be illegitimate children, (and bastards, meaning children born out of wedlock) that he fathered without the church's knowledge or blessing. And at that point, when a later scene showed "Lord Inscetus" talking to what I think was a daughter of his, as I believe he also had two daughters, thinking that the priest maybe in fact was "Lord Inscetus", and I believe that's where my version of the game ended, with Lord Inscetus talking to his cult follower/daughter about the MC, and what was in store for him in the near future, sort of in a cliffhanger style ending.

4. And if it's all one and the same game, it also casts some doubts about that very thing, as Lord Inscetus' character doesn't match a psycho killer, but he was a weirdo and a pervert with an incest kink, so maybe there's two different cults, or two different games? But here's my last main detail, pretty sure about the detail itself, but nof sure if this was part of the game with Lord Inscetus in it, or a different game altogether. The MC had an ability or power if you will, to see the last moments of a person's life after they were dead, by touching them, and was therefore occasionally brought in to help law enforcement with gruesome and particularly difficult cases, and in one segment, he is working with such an agency, and one of the team members is killed almost exatcly like the girl in the beginning of the game, and it was someone he knew (a guy), from having worked with him in the past. And one of his legs, was cut off too.

5. And finally some details I'm not sure about at all, but will include them anyway, in case they are from the game with Lord Inscetus, and/or to help to identify the possible second game. I really thought the game I was looking for, was by either ICSTOR, ICCreations, or Inceton, simply because there's a character called "Lord Inscetus" in the game, as a possible referance to the dev/creator themself, as at least two of these three, have made the 'Incest' tag their brand almost eclusively, and it's what they're known for, incest games. Secondly, the graveyard scene was gruesome, and by looking at these three devs, it doesn't seem to fit the type of games they make, it's more similar to Seath Black/Blackheart games, in that regard, but if I remember correctly, my research didn't match him either, unfortunately. But the reason I mentioned the graveyard scene again, is because if my memory of that scene is true, then the game had sound effects, most noticeable in that scene, with the MC running away from the terrible sight, and breathing heavily as he's trying to get back home unscathed.

And I could add a couple of more details, but I've rambled on long enough, and the details could even cause more confusion than help, not to mention the fact that it's hard to recap the details of a game I most likely lost in that HDD fail, when I don't even remember the game title, or names of any other (side) characters. And also the fact that we rely on things to work, not only because this drive was only two years old, but still outside the warranty period, when the fail happened. But we also rely on these devices as a second memory, and as long as they work, they keep track of things for us, and remember them, so we don't have to. And I had a first warning, when I was getting closer to the drive being full, by an error message saying 'File system error", but ran the suggested routine, and everything was fine, and seemed to work ok. But had I known that it would later fail, I would have moved more swiftly on transferring my games, but as the saying goes, hindsight is always 20/20, and it is what it is. And suffice to say, never buying a Seagate drive again, had heard they weren't any good, but it was what I could afford at the time, and maybe I should have listened to those voices on the internet, saying that Seagate drives were bad quality drives.

But anyway, as I said, I've rambled on long enough. And I hope that someone here, knows the game I'm looking for, and can point me in the right direction. And thanks for taking the time to read all of this, and thanks in advance, if you're the one who helps me find this game, as it left on a cliffhanger, and if it's not abandoned, should have updated at least a couple of times since I played it. And I really wanna see where the story goes, even though I typically steer away from dark games, horror games, or games with brutal violence in them. Oh, and I should have a couple of screenshots from the game, but I've only been able to find ONE pic, and that particular pic, isn't very telling, either. But if I find the other screenshots from it, I will update this post, but I really hope that won't be necessary, as I would literally have to go through a metric fuckton of screenshots, and if I go too fast, I might still miss it. So that is my least favourite option, and I really hope someone out there, knows EXACTLY what game it is, and comes through for me.

(Full disclosure 2: Yes, this is a copy/paste of my post on the other place, so no need to make a thing of that, I'm simply casting a net as wide as possible, in the hopes of catching the proverbial fish, in this case finding this game again, as I would like to continue playing it.)

Update:

Here's a screenshot I took back then, that I believe is from the game in question, but I could be completely wrong on that, just to be perfectly clear. But if I am right though, it's from the end scene cliffhanger, with "Lord Inscetus" in his secret lair, talking to his followers about the MC's future.

To help narrow this down:
What sort of graphics we talking about here, is it Koikatsu or is it the other 3D sort of graphics you'd expect / see from like Blackheart which you mentioned. (Not sure what that engine is called)

Yeah, the typical classic Ren'Py game look, and definitely not koikatsu or Honey Select, which have a more cartoon like look, while still being 3D, don't know about Koikatsu though, as I haven't played any Koikatsu game, I think. But I guess the game I'm looking for is Daz 3D and Ren'Py in combo with eachother? But yeah, pretty sure it was a Ren'Py game in 3D, most likely Daz, but I'm hardly an expert on this. I'm still fairly sure those other artstyles, are too different to be confused with it, though. Hope that helps a bit more.

Edit:
There's always the chance that I could be wrong, but I believe this screenshot I took back then, is from the game, but like I said, it's not telling me much.

Is it Ravenous - Game link
You must be registered to see attachments
I initially thought it was, but I have that game, and from what I saw while fastforwarding the entire game, so it is possible that I missed it, but the artstyle doesn't match the pic I just posted, and I couldn't see no Lord Inscetus there. But I was going through it pretty fast, just to confirm or move on, but from my original playthrough of it, I can't remember the MC having any abilities, or powers, or the game having sound effects, but I'll check again. And thanks regardless, but as far as I can see, it's not Ravenous from the looks of it, but I'll check again. And please read the original thread starter post, despite it being long, in case you missed any details which might help to confirm or exclude certain games.

Yeah, the game with the graphic violence is something else but most of what you're describing fits The Two Sides of Love (the priest, the sex cult, etc.).

Thank you guys so much, will check it out and report back. But I think that could be at least one of the games I'm looking for, since we now know it's two games my brain jumbled together.

Why don't you take a snip of your C:\Users\"User"\AppData\Roaming\RenPy folder and post it? I think that would help a lot.
Nah, not doing that, now that most likely one of the TWO, has been found. Now all that's left is to figure out the graphic violence game... :unsure:

Personally, IDGAF if people see what I play... LOL
Yeah, it shouldn't matter that much here, and I'm quite skilled with cropping and photoshop, so that isn't a problem. The problem is that it might be deleted from my games folder, (especially if it was an abandoned game) as well as the Ren'Py location, and taking/making a screenshot of the Ren'Py folder wouldn't matter much then, you know. But I'm very thankful for your suggestion, though, and I might do that later. Btw, how do you get a snapshot like that, did you use the windows help tool to get a big selection like that?

I used windows snipping tool.
Yeah I figured it must have been that, as a regular screenshot can only show what's on screen, and sometimes that's out of bounds for all the files to show.

On another note, wrote in the post on 95, that "thanks to another lewd corner of the internet, the game with Lord Inscetus in it, has been found, and it's 'The Two Sides Of Love'.", and those two words, although they had a space between them, and the phrasing (courtesy of the 'The Foster's' dev), it got censored "thanks to another *********** of the internet..."...

And one of his legs, was cut off too.
This one sounds like it could be Between Salvation and Abyss. The MC has that "see a person's last moments" power. He's back in town to see his family and help out with a case. At one point he's in the morgue to do his thing: first body he checks he only sees darkness and hears a gunshot; the second body is he sees her trying to reach a door out of a dark area (text says the door leads to a park, and until I went back to check my mistaken memory of it was her trying to escape a some sort of mausoleum to the outside part of a graveyard) but then getting caught/dragged back/throat slit; and the third was of the girl sitting on the ground with both her legs and her left hand had been cut/ripped off, she looks around and she's in an abandoned warehouse, tries crawling away, and then the man that did this to her catches her and snaps her neck.

Also I think you might be lumping the murders in with something else that happens (the punishment for talking to the MC). There's a young nun at the local church who is/was a friend of the MC and his older sister. The head nun punishes/tortures her for talking to the MC (and has punished her in the past for other things), and later on (spoilers if you hadn't played the version yet where this gets resolved) the MC rescues her and turns the tables on the head nun by torturing/raping her.

Yeah, I think you could be right, as I have kept that game going, but I honestly thought it was another game, as I thought BSAA was all about him being a werewolf, being reincarnated, et cetera. But I probably have to start the game from the beginning, fast forward through it, but keep an eye out and see if I see those things I described. Other than that, I think you helped me crack the mystery open, so thanks a lot for that. Which means that both games have most likely been positively identified now, and I might delete this thread later, but I'll leave it up for a while longer, if anyone else has any further details or info they like to add. Thanks again to you and the other clever heads here, now I don't have to scratch my head anymore, hopefully.

Apparently I must re-play this game because I don't remember such things! I remember fucking Julissa from behind on her bed while she's sleeping and Vanessa's accidental blowjob on the floor but nothing with the violence you described.
