You mostly play from a submissive Point-of-View. Expect the game to contain scenes involving mind control, M/F, F/F, breasts modification, sissyfication, bimboification, transformation into a woman, light BDSM and use of alcohol and pharmaceuticals/drugs.

2020-06-27: Office Bully 1.01 Final (Update 0.17 - fixed a few bugs and spelling mistakes)
2020-06-06: Office Bully 1.00 Gold (Update 0.17)
You were the Office Bully, the playboy who could get anything he wanted. But not anymore. From now on, Women will rule your life.
Will you please them as a virile Stallion, or will you serve them as a humble Sissy?
Actions and choices traditionally linked with virile or macho behavior will increase your Stallion Rating.
In contrast, acting in a more passive or submissive manner will increase your Sissy Rating.
There are no rights or wrong ways to play the game, but the story will be tailored by your choices.
Office Bully is a Reverse Trainer game, in which you are being “trained” by various characters who aim to transform you (physically and mentally) into an obedient and compliant submissive.
It features non-linear gameplay, and allows you to choose the characters you want to be involved with over time (either as lovers, master/mistress or girlfriend/boyfriend).
All scenes features high resolution graphics and the sex scenes are animated.
The New Secretary - Woman Story - Abandoned)
You are a proud and ruthless executive in one of the world’s leading biotechnology enterprises. Or at least, that is who you were until recently, when your reputation as an “Office Bully” was about to bring an end to your career. To avoid a scandal, the company has offered you a single chance at redemption, which you reluctantly accepted.
Your body was transformed and your old identity erased, as you undergo behavior modification sessions with Dr. Kumiko Tamura, a renowned psychiatrist, to prove you are no longer a threat to your colleagues. In the meantime, you have been assigned as a secretary in a very peculiar enterprise, where you’ll need to display compliant behavior toward customers and coworkers as you are compelled to become an obedient employee.
Will you find happiness and a lasting relationship in this new submissive life, or will you attempt to regain your previous position of power?
Note: The game features characters from the Dream Therapy series, but in a different storyline. The original games can be found here: https://tfgames.site/index.php?module=viewgame&id=1681
The creator of this "game" has invested a considerable amount of effort in setting up scenes with character models, lighting and rendering them. They require you to play it from their site, and the amount of data served must cost something. I don't really understand why the author is choosing to bear that ongoing bandwidth cost, but that's their business. It didn't really trouble me that I had to play it on that site, but I imagine they were harvesting as much data from my browser as feasible; no different from many other sites, but one more you could have lived without. In some cases the site was slow at serving the images though.
Despite the effort lavished on this "creation", I can't really recommend it unless your kink is rendered CG characters in stiff, awkward poses.
I'm sure there are people who love this stuff, and if you are one of them, then this is for you. Everyone else should probably look elsewhere.
There are a huge number of similar looking images, employing models and textures that feel ... a bit familiar to me ... almost like I've seen these assets somewhere before, and I am certain that I *have* seen many of these assets elsewhere.
In terms of story, it's got the usual tropes and cliches that M2F games rely on, but the dialog and images aren't immersive or exciting. They push you out of the story, creating little interest, leaving me caring nothing - just like the main-character, who really doesn't seem to care at all about anything that happens to him/her and just drifts along, indifferent to being turned into a different man, and then a woman over the period of just a few days. Of course the first thing you do after waking up as a woman is suck some cock! Why wouldn't you? I don't think the author really sold that scenario in a way that made it believable. Instead, it simply felt unconvincing. It only got worse when having a single sex dream with a bit of anal made her into a helplessly compulsive submissive. The tags indicate the transformation as "slow", but compared to most games it's almost instant.
The text and dialog is weirdly formal and inappropriate, including some odd idioms that no native speaker would use. The author does his best, and there's no doubt you can understand the dialog well enough, but it's not colloquial English, and unlike some non-native authors who have a good sense of humor that more than makes up for any strangeness, the dialog here is all "on the nose", tell not show, heavy-handed with exposition and using ornate language that feels way out of place next to the childish crude gestures the characters use (and the non-stop sex and nakedness).
"Ah, this dress beautifully draws attention to your heavy breasts."
"Yes. You will make a stunning entry in the circumstance that we are required to circumlocute the beach."
"Indeed. I surmise you will draw the attention of all and sundry as you make your promenade."
Well... Those aren't actual lines from the game, but they sum up pretty well the flavor you can expect. It's as stiff and awkward as the character poses.
Another quirk is the repetition of the same exposition phrases, over and over. "Am I now nothing but a sex doll, to be used as some kind of toy?" "This is to be my fate from now on" and so on (I paraphrase).
The repetitious exposition is as offputting as the creepy realisation that everyone has the exact same set of teeth.
I found myself nodding off while trying to play this and eventually gave up out of boredom. I later struggled through to the end, but felt underwhelmed. To say that's a plot is not really describing it. Events just happen, characters come and go, but they all say similar things and then at the end there's a little scenario. It's a valiant effort, but the author lacks the writing skills to carry it. It's not particularly erotic, or funny, or original, and there are many other graphical stories more lively and enjoyable than this.
The characters are devoid of personality, probably because every line they speak is dripping with exposition, pushing along a story that ceases to matter when it's naked image after naked image. There no sense of control, no suspense, and little in the way of surprise.
If you instantly love the images, or the odd writing hits your buttons then keep on going. But if it doesn't spark for you immediately, I suggest you quit while you're ahead.
If you are doubtful at the start it's probably not worth investing time in it hoping that it will get better once the "plot" gets moving. I don't think it does.
It's a good thing he abandoned the incredibly dull female route in favour of the male route. The art is quite good. The dialog is not quite so good with the characters a bit weak in the area of having individual personalities. The plot's actually pretty good, though. It's actually kind of interesting to see the evil shrink from Dream Therapy actually make the final choice to be irrevocably evil here. I'll continue to follow new releases.
Note however that this "game" is super linear. I've played through with all submissive and all dominant choices and there's almost no difference in what happens. It isn't true that there's no "sissy" content. You are given several opportunities to wear women's clothing. It just...doesn't matter to this point. I assume that if and when this character's story ends your dominant versus submissive score will determine which of two endings you get. Then again since Rick's story seems to be over and we have switched to a new victim that may not be the case.
Despite being listed as complete, this game doesn't allow you to play past chapter 2 unless you cough up some dough on Patreon.
There are now two games under the same heading.
Disclaimer: There are two paths to choose from at the start, the majority of my review is regarding one of the two paths which is abandoned work by the author. The game contains no indication that this path is abandoned. I wrote this review before I learned that it was an abandoned path, and was very angry to have wasted my time on basically nothing.
Female path review:
This game is utter trash.
It has a mind-numbingly boring gameplay loop where you literally have the following choices:
Day: Go to work. I've seen a total of five outcomes for this. Four of them are sexual, where you choose whether or not to do something with one of two men, I'm not sure what as I'm skipping the text and declining the option. With the two women, it's cunnilingus. The other is solo, and you can choose to masturbate, suck a dildo, or... I think just buckle down and get work done. This last option gives you extra money... which is completely useless, because you cannot spend it on anything.
Night: Masturbate or sleep.
There's your entire game. New clothes, which do not look remotely interesting, cost more than your money cap of 100.
There's a locked daily event which costs 200 "progress" points (advanced by sucking the dildo, and maybe sex events). Once you grind out the points for this daily event, you're then informed it isn't available. It would have been nice to know that before I wasted my time grinding this exceptionally boring game.
Also, this game with no content is marked as complete? Holy shit.
-Added later: I just read that the author generously left in this "incomplete" path for those who like extreme tedium. My mistake for missing one sentence in the cluttered description. (This sentence is now missing entirely from the description and you must go to the plot tab to even find out about it. This should have been clearly marked in the game.)
Male path review:
The other path follows the visual novel style of his other games and, at least the way I played, led to the male character eventually being instantaneously TG'd. I won't spoil the rest of the story, but I figured knowing that was important.
If you like his other games, this one should suit you as well.
I'm not usually one for sci-fi magical tranformations where you just take a pill and BAM GIRL but this one was nice. It was pretty decently paced if you are a good reader and took me about an hour to play through. The characters are strong which is nice, there is a sex scene for basically ever chapter and the story was simple to follow. The art is fantastic and very immersive, combined with some decent animation to create some fluidity.
Of course, the main complaint I and others have are the lack of choice. Sure there are choices you can make in the moment, but none effect the outcome of what comes next. And the music only exists in the chapter screen, and the sfx is very sparingly used. I think it worked once.Still if you like a story where you become submissive to women go ahead and try it. 7/10.
