I remember downloading a copy of this game in the early 2000s and trying to play it, but not getting much of anywhere. It was a 3D graphics game, but with the early method of using shaded spheres (ellipsoids?) for the graphics, kind of like Ballz. I didn't get very far in the game, but the idea is that you play either a male or a female in what looks like a medieval European village. I'm not certain if it's set in that time period or if it was just more of a primitive style of building with people from the modern era visiting. There are creatures - my impulse is to say they were goblins or demons - that you can fight or sneak by. I never did a very good job getting around them. I think you start out in either an inn or a church. The loss screen included your character being strung up by one leg by the creatures, I think with the implication that they would eat you.
It was probably either MS-DOS or early Windows. I think I played with the keyboard, but it might have used joystick or mouse controls. For some reason, I want to say it was named something ending in "-otica" like Exotica or Erotica, but I don't think it was about sex, so those don't sound right.
I might have downloaded it from the Home of the Underdogs site as that's where I got a lot of "Abandonware" games at the time.
