Conception 2, on paper, sounds like one of those games your friend told you about but you didn’t believe was real. “It’s this game where you have to make babies with all the prettiest girls in school. But to make them, you have to use those Russian nesting dolls. Then, you use those babies to make an army to help you kill monsters. NO IT’S TOTALLY A REAL GAME! My brother has it!” Then years later, you find out its real and play it. Here’s the thing about those types of games, though: Once you get past the novelty of it, there usually isn’t much below the surface and that applies to Conception 2 in spades.
