Bible Black: The Infection (Baiburuburakku - バイブルブラック The Infection) is the second computer game and the most recent addition to the Bible Black series.

Unlike its predecessor, the game was developed by the Japanese company Kururi Active and released on the 25th of July, 2008. It was translated to English and distributed by the American company Kitty Media.

The game recycles most of the art and sound from the first game, but also adds several new images in a considerably different and slightly cruder art style. The voice actors have also changed from the original game and anime.

Gameplay

The gameplay is the same as the first one and is a visual novel, with few interactive elements. The player is occasionally presented with a few clickable multiple-choice decision points, not all of which are relevant to the general plotline (see the Endings section below). There are five different possible endings to the story, considerably less than the original game, which has twelve.

The story takes place over three days, but unlike the first game, this information is not seen in the corner of the screen. The day the player is on can only be seen when saving and loading the game.

Like other visual novels, the player is given the option to fast forward or rewind through dialogue. He can also save and load the game at any point. In the game's Extras menu, one can access previously unlocked erotic scenes, background music and art. Additionally, the player can check which endings have already been played out.

The game is completely voiced and has some sound effects and music (see Soundtrack below). However, the voice actors differ from the previous game and anime. Like much of the art, the music is recycled from the first game.

Plot

Kitami appears in Minase's dream.

The story takes place one month after the incident of the first game. The spirit of evil witch Reika Kitami who perished in the first game still lingers around the Academy, influencing students with sexual devotion like an infection.

The player again takes the role of student Taki Minase, who is now in a relationship with his friend and neighbor Kurumi Imari, wanting nothing more than to put his evil past with the Bible Black spell book behind him. When he wakes up screaming from a strange occult dream about Kitami, he knows that dark magic will never leave his life for good.

Mysterious events again start happening around the school, and the girls once involved with the ritual start behaving strangely. It is up to Minase and his trusted art professor Hiroko Takashiro to stop the spirit of Kitami and to figure out what the witch's former devotee Kaori Saeki has to do with it.
