The Essence of Gender is an 18+ game where the core game mechanic revolves around taking and losing essence of masculinity and femininity.
The game is made in HTML5 so a up to date modern browser in needed for it to run correctly.
Firefox or Chrome is recommened.
The game is a (text?) rpg with support to add a image pack.
I am new to writing as I am more of a coder guy, so until I get more experienced text/dialog will be lacking.
The game is still early development so there is much to be done but getting opinions will help the development a lot.
Opinions on design(css) and balance are greatly appreciated.
And please report any bug you encounter (with info from console if there is any).

I'm really happy for the suggestions & feedback, if possible post a copy of your feedback/suggestions in the Discussion Thread so that I can comment on it for clarification etc.
Graphics: 2 (Very simple 2D pixel graphics, with no animated motion. At least it's not another pure text-only game.)
Gameplay: 6/10 (This is where the game really shines. It reminds me of Corruption of Champions combat, except without the wall of text after each action. I'd like to give it a higher score, but the game is still very early. I'd like to give it a higher score here, because this was all done by one person, but I just can't.)
Story: 1/10 (You roam across the small game world freely without any pesky story getting in your way.)
Sound: 0/10 (No music, no special effects, no sound)
The writing definitely needs work, maybe another person who'll look it over as well.
What's there is already very solid. It's no TiTS or Lilith's Throne, but it's good.
This is WOW. A very interesting game.
My first impression of it is that it is a poorly made rpg-maker-overseeing sandbox map... but that word "poor" is a result of comparing the game to an rpg maker game with a well established resouce library as the foundation. As an HTML game built up from stretch, I really have no idea how much time the creator had invested into this. If you are expecting a text game like me, you could be totally owned. Awesome.
There are currently lots of issue. Balance. Bugs. Placeholder everywhere. But what is there can already make a pretty fun game.
My first run was stopped by a game breaking bug, turning my mascularity and all related numbers to NaN after a defeat... but it was enjoyable before that happened. I am looking forward to see a great game when it is more polished.
This game shows extremely good promise, keep up the good work.
Every day(every day is a couple seconds) that passes subtracts 1 kg of fat, which makes it nessecary to constantly overeat like a bear to build up food stores and prevent starvation. Stop that, make days go slower, make food system less obnoxious.
Edit: Vore options allowing you to recover food from enemies makes this more viable.
