"Marginal" game (Au$26.99) - what is this about?

It's in the RPG section listed as Au$26.99 in the Australian appstore but listed as a Free app on AppShopper. It appears to be a Japanese game with possibly the most bizarre intro text ever:

Quote:
Love love life adventure with lovely housemaids developed in mysterious European-style building.
Please satisfy service sincere from lovely housemaids.
Is this a valid RPG/adventure type game, or is it just a dating/sex app? I don't speak Japanese and I'm reluctant to pay Au$26.99 to download something I doubt I'll be able to play.

If it is a genuine game I want to add it to my site, and play it if/when there's an English version. So any advice/info from Japanese speakers out there would be welcome.

Thanks!

The rating description makes me think it is a porn game.

I have one similar game called Kira Kira, that visual novel was about forming a band in high school (the volume of the game is insane.. took me like 4 days to finish the first scenario...).. It supposedly have sex scenes in the game but on the iphone version, scenes were removed and/or strictly edited/censored LOL... Oh yeah, and Apple wouldn't accept porn into app store.. or would they? lol

Thank you so much everyone! It does sound like one that doesn't really fit with my site.

I have been adding interactive adventure RPGs (like gamebooks), but this doesn't really sound like that either.

Hope anyone that did download this is enjoying it anyway
