House sitting is an semi-open world game which draws inspiration from one of my all time favorites on this site: GOLD RUSH. Because it has been so long since Gold Rush was updated I decided that I wanted to make a similiar game and complete the story to fit my own preferences.
You will be guiding a young man Chad(you can change his name) through a gauntlet of trials. He however doesn't realize it is a full gauntlet. Along the way he will undergo many changes and learn just how much terrible power the Mob Families of Nevada wield.
With over 42000 words and almost 300 pasages this represents 5 months of work.
Make sure to start a New Game as this update breaks saves.
When Reviewing Please do not include bug reports in the review. Please place those in the Discussion Thread. Link below:
Chad has just graduated High School and will be attending a state school to study bussiness in the fall. His family doesn't have the money to help so he has to figure expenses out on his own. One of his friends from High School has a rich daddy who will be taking her on an 8 week cruise. She convinced him to hire you to take care of their mansion while they are gone. All you have do really is keep it clean. Don't forget to keep it clean though or you might loose out on all your spending money.
The first day there Chad discovers a secret room and a challenge which sits between him and half a million dollars. He has never been more motivated in his life to achieve success in something. But success comes at a price. Even the pursuit of success will come at a cost. How much is Chad going to sacrifice for the money? You decide.
Chad- Our hero
Abby- The rich girl
Stacey- A stripper
Sierra- Abby's dark friend with a darker reputation
Vamsi- Owner of the Local Pawnshop
Evelynne- Owner of the local adult video store. She seems kinda predatory
The walk-through can be found in my first post of the forum discussion thread.
Fixed Image Pack
I believe I have fixed some of the black screens.
Fixed spacing inside of the closets.
Fixed missing image links.
Fixed broken and orphaned tags
Posted a compressed file for download rather than separate files
More bug fixes
A few spelling and grammar fixes(not many I will do a dedicated combing in the next few weeks)
A few new images
Fixed a programming issue which prevented access to the Krav Maga studio. It should now be working.
Reworked the inventory system it should be less buggy now and more visually appealing. Fingers crossed.
The ballet flats should now work properly.
The first door now properly acccepts other female underwear than the white panties.
Make up has been added. It is in the bathroom after the first time you shave.
Fixed the issue with getting stuck at the mall if you skipped steps before going shopping. You will however not be able to finish day 2 unless you go back and fix those steps.
Fixed a game breaking bug on day 2 No need to start a new game if you have a save from V0.1.3.
There's some bugs and a few spelling errors, and it could use some better UI, but it's not bad and a faithful updated version of Gold Rush.
I'm looking forward to see how it will be updated forward and for it to reach content parity with the old game at least!
I appreciate someone trying to recreate the vibe and basic storyline similar to The Gold Rush.
However, the inventory/wardrobe needs a lot of work. Too many things seem to be able to stack.
Some coding errors that need to be fixed, etc.
A little more testing before first release would have been a good idea.
Hope to see it get better. But overall a good effort.
Thanks for staying on top of the bugs. Keep it up!
The good news:
The not-as-good news:
Definitely keep your eye on this one, but for now don't feel bad if you decide to replay the original GR instead and wait on this game a few updates for the bugs to shake out and content to grow before giving it a playthrough.
I am so glad that someone has attempted to take this over and hopefully will take it to completion. I eagerly await to see where this project goes.
about time someone did this, wish i could but won't know how and don't have the writi ability to make it good.
thanks for taking this on.
