Added the visulization for Catelly's larger lips (Have sex with blackfire the first time)
Due to the many positive reviews of the game, I gave it a try with high expectations. But what I first found was a wall of text with an almost-unreadable tiny pale brown font over brown background.
After skipping that and playing the combat tutorial I got.. another wall of text, sorry but I'll stick with the games with ugly but responsive UIs.
I am very impressed by this visual novel. I found the artwork to be fantastic and enjoyable, the story to be overall very coherant and the interactivity from the game events entertaining and at times challenging.
The main character is someone you can empathise with, but their motivations are very erratic. One moment they're seeking independence from their "lot in life" off the encounter that started the entire story, but from the decisions you make it can be very easy to have them flipped mentally to be a bimbo hussy with the effect lurking in every future encounter you come across. While it does create some mood whiplash at times, by large it's acceptable under the story: they're suffering from the effects of wild magic after all and it's still active.
The NPCs and supporting characters you run across all to this current version have personality and developed back stories. Their motivations are all different and their effects on the main character do link in to the transformations on offer with this game. Your choices do matter and if you are careless you can find yourself at a Bad End (and you'll typically be warned right when you're on the edge of one) or causing discord within your social circle. I did find it a little strange how rape-happy two of the supporting characters are, but again I can give it a pass from not looking at it from the perspective of the story world: they're a lot more liberal than I expected.
The interactivity within the game can be limited or left a full, depending on your preference. Combat is optional if you so choose but turning it off can affecte events. There are items you can buy from a shop to help you in combat and all of the NPCs and your avatar can be levelled up with additional skills to use in the combat encounters. Active CYOA is in play in the game, much in the way that choice selection occurs in any visual novel, but there are consequences to your actions (transformations chiefly) and do risk leading to Bad Ends. Fortunately if you hit a bad end without saving, the game will take you back a step so you can see the other paths.
The artwork is top notch. While there is still development work going on and some of the artwork I was being shown did not exactly match the current state of my character, for the most part it was correct. I was quite amused to find that certain transformations do affect the story world past your avatar to maintain the "reality" being set around the wild magic at play (later main story event): it was a really nice touch. The backgrounds though frequently get same-same in both the visual novel sections and the combat sections, but it's not enough to be anything other than a passing observation nuisance.
Bugs are currently in the game the further you go. Got to see a strange exploding fireball graphic at one point that kept going throughout an entire fight and at a later fight against two special enemies with 2x2 grid hitboxes, the game didn't let my avatar or some combat actions that should have been working trigger. And in a much later game exploration section the Sleep and Rest buttons were broken. But hey, beta: I was able to cope with it and I am sure you can too.
TL;DR this is a great visual novel/interactive CYOA game to go through at least once with good transformations and the artwork makes it all worth it.
Combat is supposed to be disabled in the android version! Thanks for bringing this up.
Quite enjoyable content so far. Only real complaint is that the Android version seems unstable with glitching text on the battle screen, unresponsive settings button with said button disappearing entirely after the first battle.
This is a great game. While things seem to be fairly linear, the story it tells is good enough and executed well enough that trading off a less linear approach for them is worth it. The art is some of the best I've seen in a game like this and I love it.
Combat adds to the game, reinforcing what is already a very well fleshed out world and characters, while still being light enough not to make the game feel slow, grindy and frustrating.
For the main character, Catelly, I particularly love the angle her curse takes in making the game erotic. To explain, often in erotic games like this with MTF transformation, it's either an 'embrace the changes' or 'resist the changes' option. While in Unyielding the choices are similar in that many are whether on not to give in to the curse, neither option feels unrealistic. 99% of games here, either one or both feel completely out of character to take, breaking immersion in the games world and story. Unyielding doesn't have that problem, both giving in and resisting feel natural and progress the game.
Definitely worth playing! I took me awhile to get through all the content present at this stage, and I loved every moment. One of those rare instances where I'm looking forward to future updates not just because I love the erotic parts, but also because the characters are likeable and interesting, and I geniunely am engrossed in the unfolding story.
Thanks a tonne for all the effort and sharing! I've really enjoyed Unyielding so far!
