A slow transformation of the main character game inspired by Magical Girl Camp, Little Bitch Academia, and most notably, Afterlife.
As of version 0.1.0 there is currently a little over 60k words of content. Much less will be seen in any given playthrough due to dialogue choices and other branching options, but it's starting to look like a real game.
Jake, a college student, is pulled to another world. I don't like giving spoilers much more than getting them, so play the game if you want to find out more.
Minimal Spoiler Walkthrough
Warning: I've tried to keep this walkthrough as close to the bare minimum for spoilers as I can, but I can't avoid all spoilers while still making it helpful.
After the lengthy intro an option to save will pop up prior to a mini-game. The only effect of this mini game is that if you dodge long enough, you’ll get an extra bonus to your stats.
Note that you can still be hit by orbs briefly even when you can’t really seem them right at the end of the event. If you dodged successfully, the text will list the bonus separately, so you’ll know that you got it.
Continue through the intro until you get control of your character again. Before leaving the building, note that if you keep talking to the character to the right of the door, you can earn yourself an extra 500 credits.
Continue on until shown to your room. Check the boxes in your room to pick up a stash of health potions.
Continue along with the story until given a choice how much divinity to spend. A few things to note on this choice:
When you fight if you want the second most potent form of a transformation coming later in the game, you’ll need to lose. There’s no other reason to lose short of seeing the dialogue, which also varies based on which fight you ended up in.
First Free Time
Continue the game until you get your first free time. You can do two events that take time during this free time.
See section on free time below for some options, but the one key thing to do at this point is talk to the nurse in the hospital. This will not take one of your slots, but you can only see one nurse event per day, and there are other events locked behind the event chain. With limited time, it’s best to get started.
Also, do not visit the library until the first two nurse events have been seen or you will lock yourself out of a few events.
Next up, there are two weapon stores. You must visit the one in the town center before you can enter the one in the south. Note that there are better weapons for the same price in the southern shop, so it’s recommended you don’t buy anything in your first visit.
Finally, it is recommended against spending divinity on new aspects if you want all options for an upcoming transformation. Spending 500 would make it a fairly heavy order to earn enough.
You will start off being given a choice to select two party members to fill out the party. Some notes:
In the first forest area there are a few things to do:
The optional boss is one of the harder fights in the game but should not prove too challenging with the right party and strategy. Boss details:
Continue the game until being brought to new scenery. This next part has a couple of puzzles. For the first puzzle, examine the machine to start, then push it up back the way you came.
Missable Transformation: After the explanation for the maze, but before moving on walk back up toward the entrance. This will trigger an event for a hidden transformation. You will not see the results of it until the maze is complete.
Continue on to the next boss.
This fight will be harder for some fights than others, but should be fairly simple for any party if you know what you’re doing.
After the boss you get the choice described in the notes at the beginning of the dungeon that affect the transformation.
Notes during the escape:
After continuing the main story, you’ll be given your second free time again with time for two time-taking events.
The only recommendation is to talk to the nurse again for the second event. After the second event you’ll be free to use the library. You’ll need to see both library events before you can continue on to the next nurse event.
Second Arena Fight
Your first weekend with nothing to do. You’ll have four free time slots to fill your time. If you’ve been following this walkthrough and saw both nurse events and then completed both library events, make sure to stop back at the nurse for a reward.
You may also want to visit the enchantment store to craft equipment. At minimum you should be able to get one from the earth spirit core, and you took down the spider boss, that’s good for a nice cheap piece of equipment.
There’s nothing optional dialogue scenes you can see early in the mission, but nothing of significance. Just advance the plot. Check around the town shops if you’re not sure where to go at various points.
This fight has an easy mode. Feel free to try without the easy mode. There’s no real reward beyond a little extra experience, but you may find it challenging. It shouldn’t be too hard.
Make sure to save after this boss fight.
This fight should be fairly simple, but you can get unlucky.
Continue with the main story.
Your final free time has but a single event slot. This is the only time you can get Adinia’s social event. Also, if you followed the guide, head back to where you entered the previous dungeon to find a glowing spot. You can use the item there at the enchantment shop.
Free Time Events
These are the events that take up Free Time slots
Has two events. It’s recommended not to do either event until the first two nurse events have been seen. The first one increases Study Points (used for training new spells) and adds to the main character’s magic defense stat. The second lets the main character equip staves and adds magic.
Adding aspects takes no time, but training spells does. Since you start with only one study point, it’s recommended not to train magic until after the first library event, as you’ll learn twice as fast.
At the gym you can train fencing. The first event teaches a stronger attack move. The second event lets the main character counter whenever a parry is successful.
Note: Second level social events for main characters require a minimum affection level. If short, there will instead be a repeatable event to raise affection.
Gedmern Social Events
To activate the first event, you need to first have entered the item store at least once. Then, it can be activated in the bar.
The second event requires the first and can be activated on the first floor of the Timeless’s headquarters.
Grosh Social Events
Both events are in town. The first by the food stand near the entrance to the temple. The second is by the shop.
Adinia Social Events
Adinia only has one social event. It can be activated only during the final free time event of the game and starts at the door to her room.
Niarae Social Events
Niarae’s first event is found on the first floor of the Timeless’s headquarters. Her second event is started by talking to another character near the entrance to the tower North of town.
Angie Social Events
The first event is found in town near the shops. The second event requires the first three nurse events be seen and is found on the roof the Timeless’s headquarters. To complete the nurse events:
Fixed bug that was preventing end of content event from firing and looping back to an old event instead.
Just finished playing and I had fun for most of it.
The story seems pretty decent while it takes inspirations like you said it's definitely it's own thing, the time problem is unique and why the m2f happens isn't the same old that I've come to see.
Completely bug free for me.
Still getting a feel for the characters but that all seem interesting in their own ways, I like the reversal for the one. Really thought she was going to be a tsundere when I first met her.
Combat is fine, nothing has been even mildly difficult when with your party members but I hope Jake can pull his weight when it comes to fighting soon.
A few different mechanics to keep me on my toes was a good addition, the timer and bubbles, the dungeon puzzle etc.
Oh and I like Izzy. :V
I look forward to seeing more of this.
Glad to see more games that actually intent to be a real game, not CYOA. What was presented in 0.0.1a is a solid fundament for a great and entertaining experience. Certainly Timeless Pantheon can stand on the same ground as LBA or Magical Camp once given enough time. Who knows, it might surpass them with enough work. Keep up the good work!
For the Moment pretty good with more development it could stand beside Magical Camp and co.
Game seems pretty cool, and btw, there is actually combat in this version. Not sure what the minigame part was in reference though....
Hopefully the character does at some point become a godling (if they actually aren't already) though, otherwise things might get kinda grindy....
Engaging story right from the get go! I'm interested to see more. Great start!
