[HTML] In Her Own Hands [v0.6.4a] [Surprise & Delight Media]


I could never have imagined the life that I have now. I live each day with no regrets, but that wasn’t always the case.

I was always the “good girl” who did everything perfectly. I colored inside the lines and never knew what I was missing. When I caught my boyfriend cheating with my best friend, I decided enough was enough. I left college and moved to the city, taking my life in my own hands. Now each day is an adventure, especially for someone as inexperienced at…well, everything…as I happen to be. Moving in with two hot guys started me down a path of temptation, and I’m only looking forward from here. I can’t wait to share all my experiences with you.

In Her Own Hands” is a compelling, HTML-based, adult game featuring a young female protagonist and the temptations that await her in the city. This immersive life sim was intentionally created to offer a sex-positive exploration of a woman’s sexual journey. Her erotic adventures know no bounds but are grounded in consent. She retains full agency over her decisions, no matter what consequences might follow. The IHOH story will continue to unfold as you connect with her personality, molding her character and journey according to your own will as you are presented with meaningful choices at every turn.

Note: This game will not contain coerced or forced sexual activity, nor any incestuous relationships.
