Desire is an anime-themed (hentai-themed, actually) adult graphical adventure game in which the player plays through the game three times, each as a different character. The first story is as the reporter Albert Macdougal, who seeks information about the mysterious island research facility called Desire. The second playthrough is as Albert's girlfriend, Makoto, the chief technician at Desire. The third playthrough is as Martina, the scientist in charge of the Desire project. There is also an epilogue. Each subsequent playthrough sheds more light on the events that transpired in the earlier playthroughs, giving this game a unique, layered quality.
