You're the star quarterback, the homecoming king, and you're dating the hottest girl in school. Life is good...or it was, until you got yourself cursed by a witch. She wanted you to lose your muscles and your spot as the starting quarterback, but to your horror, other changes seem to be taking place too.
Male path: This is pretty simple. Don’t do anything that would cause you to get transformed, spend a lot of time practicing football with Griffin and in the weight room, and you’ll hold onto the quarterback job
Jessica path: This is also pretty simple, at least for now. As long as you don’t break up with Jessica in order to get her into the Witchcraft Club, you’ll stay in a relationship with her.
Note: If your avatar shows that you're not wearing shoes, you might have to take your shoes off, put them back on, and save your outfit again
I've replayed this one a few times over the course of updates. I think it's one of the better games on site and keeps getting better. The art is alright, although sometimes it would help to see the other characters on their own to have it more clearly established which is which. I really like the Jessica path, easily my favorite part of the game.
My biggest ongoing minor 'eh' is that I really dislike Griffin and I dislike how easily some things pop in, especially if you've been telling him to f off for most of the game. I kinda wish there was a male option other than griffin although I understand with continued development that's probably unrealistic for where the game is going. My personal choice is usually to exclusively hang out with Jessica and fully ignore Raven and Griffin.
I haven't gotten through all of the content in this update, although there are a few new bugs in the graphics of the new version. I didn't run into any crashes, but some ?? stuff where the protagonist has socks while at the pool, wears school clothes at football practice somehow (early, not at a point where I think that's intentionally possible).
Anyway, I mostly just hope to see the Jessica path continue to grow at this point, and do recommend the game!
This game had me involved for hours, just slowly working through the story. It's nice to have your decisions have impact on future choices. Very well crafted!
Negatives: Sometimes you get railroaded: Trying the sometimes 3 or 4 variations and choices and always ending up at the same bad place was mildly annoying at times. The "sex" scenes are extremely limited, and the player has to do all the initiating. The other characters don't seem to have the ability to remove clothing or initiate anything in the normal sex scenes. (There are story scenes that things happen, but no character ever does any pushing once a boundary is established by the player choices.) Transformation happens very slowly over time, and it feels like some of the changes happening should be noticed a lot more by the other characters around the protagonist.
Positives: Active development - I went to load a save and the last time I played was 2 years ago or so, and wow, it has seen a lot of build up! What has been crafted here is phenomenal! There is a great, linear, adjustable story being told and the protagonist has a lot of ability to fight the transformations and maintain the sense of self instead of just becoming a chick. You really have a lot of say in how fast the descent is.
I'd definitely rank this in the top 5 games on this site, and I'm really looking forward to seeing more!
Coming back years later, I am so grateful to say that this game has far surpassed even the lofty aspirations I had for it back when I played the very first version. It has gained so much depth and so many great QoL features, all while continuing the absolutely top tier writing and TF direction that it started with. Even at this late stage of the game, the author is still taking the time to ensure any possible way to play the character is allowed to continue with a natural progression. The care that went into ensuring that the player always has control over what the main character's motivations are, and how they'll attempt to deal with things as they come is honestly mindblowing.
This is now hands down one of the greatest games on the site, and you are seriously missing out if you don't look into it. As I have been for every update starting from the first, I eagerly await the continuation of this masterpiece.
Original review kept below for posterity:
This is a very promising start, which is not something I say often. It reminds me of earlier RAGS based games with it's concept, which is kinda of refreshing to see. What I especially liked is how much control I had over the main character's personality. You aren't forced into playing a stereotypical asshole jock. That's still an option, but there is clear groundwork being set up to let your character and the people he interacts with have a lot more freedom as the game progresses. It helps the characters feel a bit more human, and a bit less like cliches.
The TF is a light presence, but I do like it's pacing thus far. While I might prefer if it were a bit slower, I realise that's quite hard to write, so I'm fine with what we have. I might suggest going a bit further with describing the body after a TF segment, as without any sort of graphic we have little idea what he looks like. I eagerly look forward to more mental TFs moving forward, which I can see being set up even where we are now.
Overall, it's a solid and well written little story with a lot of promise that will hopefully be developed later on.
This... has come so so very far from when I first played it...imo, it's almost in a complete state now, just a bit left to round it out if the author wanted to end it here. I'd very much look forward to this game going ever farther into the protagonist's life. IDK how or where it'll go from here, but wherever the rabbit hole leads, I'll follow right behind the author!
There even appears to be real-ish motivations to the characters, and more of a real romance than most games on this site.
TLDR: Awesome game, not complicated, very enjoyable and sweet!
PS: Would love to see more about Protag as a member of the witch club.

I only discovered this game by chance, due to seeing it in the 'recently updated' list here. I'm very glad I found it.
There are very few games which really hook me in - but this one's been added to that list. The way the plot develops is well done and engaging and there isn't the repetition or grind that some of the others have. I like that you have some control over the speed of progress and the variable options as to how you get there, with several different characters to 'help' you.
I will add that as a non-American I don't get understand any of the football references or content but the game was sufficiently enjoyable that that didn't put me off.
There are some rough edges, which is understandable for a work in progress: I couldn't find a way to buy anything in the mall except via a couple of very specific interactions; there's an error in the girlfriend scene which is already reported as a known bug to be worked on (EDIT: this has been fixed); and there are a few events which allude to interactions which haven't happened (EDIT: also fixed). But none of that mattered. It was good enough for me to play it through multiple times to explore more of the options. I don't do that unless it's very good content.
Some suggestions, offered only with the intent to help it to be even better:
Other than that all I can say is that I'm really looking forward to the next update. If you've not yet tried this game you're in for a fun time.
It's been a long time since I reviewed this one and it's too good a game not to say that it's getting even better. The newly added content adds more depth (and fun) to the story and doesn't feel like it's trying to go in six different directions at once, unlike some others. I like the hints option - useful if you need it, but ignorable if you don't - and the warning when you're running out of content. So much better than an abrupt finish.
A couple of suggestions I'll add to my previous list, again not as a criticism but to help improve it further: it feels like there should be a way to change your name or, better still, have the witches impose a girly name on you. And it'd be fun to be able to wear the fancy dress clothes at other times.
This game is one of the greats. Miss it at your peril.
