It's a pretty standard RPG, it does feature bad ends that contain transformation, but the gameplay doesn't focus on it. Just to be clear, since many people (including me sometimes) often look for a game that just throws sexy pics at their faces and that's it, this is NOT a game for those situations I'm afraid. It's slow paced, heavily focused on dialogues and on constucting a nice, vibrant world in which to play (I hope). The first part of the game will indeed revolve around a slow M2F transformation, but that might not appeal to everybody, because of the time it'll take for the character to change.
Latest version is chapter 3 BUGFIX3G (I made the golem chase less punishing). Sadly I could not add bad ends as the main artist is going through some rough times, I'll add some as soon as she's back on track (honey milf, maybe a dollification one, one for the sparring lesson...)
Saves from ch. 3 are ok, but saves from previous chapters are not compatible, but I included a savefile (Save15) for those who want to get to the new content right away.
For those wondering why I uploaded this as folder, well... a script made some files not included when encrypting in RPG Maker... so this was my least cumbersome option, sadly.
EDIT: I added a .zip download, should be much faster
KO-FI - I now have a Ko-Fi account, so... even if I still don't feel comfortable asking for money, some people told me they'd have wanted a way to support me. Well, here it is (tfgamessite labels it as a patreon link... but whatever)
TO ASK QUESTIONS OR POINT OUT PROBLEMS, JOIN THE DISCUSSION THREAD OR THE DISCORD SERVER OF MAGICAL CAMP AND LITTLE BITCH ACADEMIA
NOTE FOR RE-UPLOADERS: I know you exist, and I can't stop you, but please just link my file in whatever porn site you fancy, so I can have an idea of how many people actually download the game, don't re-upload on MEGA or whatever, ok?
(DON'T ASK STUFF OR RANDOMLY COMPLAIN IN THE REVIEW SECTION, WE HAVE THE DISCUSSION THREAD FOR THOSE, PLEASE)
Our protagonist is a rather depressed 22 years old guy, who dropped out of college and is now stuck in a shitty job.
That changes when he falls asleep in the bus on the way home, and wakes up in a strange forest...
I won't spoil anything more, since as I said the plot is a key feature of the game (even if right now there's not much to be amazed about, I think).
Will add them later. (past me was very optimistic)
I don't think there's a need for a real Walkthrough, since the game usually tells you where to go and what to do. Also I feel the battles are pretty easy right now, so I won't add one unless people ask for it, in which case I'll gladly comply, given the time.
Chapter 3 is out... finally.
If you want (mostly) bug-less experience, wait a bit for the BUGFIX version, once others have tested a bit.
This game is a solid 10/10.......actually 20/10
The story is interesting enough and the graphics and music and sound effects are excellent compared to RPG Maker games I've played.
The humor is a specific brand of clean internet humor that I like.
The gameplay is punishing though. It took me at least twenty times to finish the opening wolf chase and in dungeons there is a random encounter every ten steps.Honestly I think the game would be greatly improved with a lever to turn off random encounters, they implemented that in Magical Camp (which is made by the same people? I'm not clear on that)
LBA has some strong points that demonstrate that Edna has skill as a developer. The cutscenes are very well composed, with little details that require a lot of time and care to get right. The movement of the bus coming to a halt, for instance. LBA has enough strengths that I'm going to be checking back on updates, because it does more than have potential, it realizes and actualizes that potential... in some areas.
But the game has some acute flaws that greatly diminish the experience, most of which can be summarized as: It does not respect the player's time.
The tutorial dungeon's encounter absurd, for example. A battle against 2~3 rats every ten steps, on average, with every fight being a matter of mashing z/enter until the enemies are dead. I fought ten rats before getting to the bush on the second screen, despite heading directly towards it. The dungeon is visually very well done, but the size of it, combined with the encounter rate, makes it wear out its welcome. Same with the chase scene, which goes on long enough that it stops feeling tense and becomes tedious.
Likewise, jokes that could be fantastic are instead dragged out until the fun dies. Dr. Acula searching around for a wine glass, just to throw it to the floor, is a fantastic bit. But it's ruined by the rest of the scene, which reminds me of a Homer Simpson quote: "You take forever to say nothing." (Which I admit I'm guilty of myself.)
With an editor that can trim down the dialog, to keep gags snappy and the story moving, and with dungeon/encounter reworks to rein in the tedium? LBA could be the best game on the site, hands down. But it still needs work.
I was shocked when a saw a character's arc. Also a humour. This was a mixture made me love this game!
Of all the RPGMaker games that get posted here, this is one of the few that feels like a real game. There's minigames, cutscenes, the whole shebang. It's great. There's easily hours of gameplay here.
The transformation content is relatively sparse, and after a few hours, the only sexual/transformation content I've found has been sissy stuff. Unfortunately, if you're like me and are aren't into crossdressing or femboys, this probably isn't the game for you. If there's other TF content, I haven't found it.
While the writing is usually good, it also tends towards what I will affectionately call "Anime style cringe" and a childish sort of humor that can be pretty eye-roll worthy. Sometimes its charming, other times it's little more than mid 2000's rage comics put to the written word.
It's undoubtedly a good game. It feels polished as all hell, and the amount of work and care that's gone into it is impressive. But the scarcity of TF content is stretched between long sections of dialogue that gets cringey at times, mixed with your usual RPGMaker battles, which makes it hard to recommend if you're looking for a transformation game. However if you just want to play a game, it's certainly that. For me, there's not enough non-sissy content to sustain my interest through what I can tell is a very long game.
