177 is a Bishōjo game for NEC PC-8801 released in Japan in 1986 by dB-soft.

Players take the role of a rapist. If a man gives pleasure to a woman, he marries her. If a man doesn't give pleasure to a woman, he is arrested. The title of the game is a reference to a Japanese legislation concerning underage rape.

Though 177 was not the first game of this nature, the Komeito Party referred to the game on October 21, 1986. It was considered excessively explicit by the Japanese government, and was recalled and re-released with more conservative scenes and gameplay.
