10/10 for anyone who is excited by main character AR+M2F. Especially if you like that hard to find shrinking plot line that doesn't go into doll size or vore. Just being small, for a human.
If these are things you like, it has a good chance of being your favorite game on the site.
It's also complete, a rarity on this site, though the author keeps adding additional good content as well.
Sleepover Makeover is a game i keep coming back to simply due to the short but high quality content it provides, its an ARTG game which i know is a turn off to some people but you can tell dragonfire knows their stuff, the game doesn't force you down a route, its open to how much you are willing to take part, be a douche, your mostly likely going to get one of the bad endings, be nice, you'll get an alright ending, once you play a few times you strive for the golden ending which as someone who has played this game and gotten nearly all the endings, i can say is more difficult than it sounds, you can easily finish this game in five minutes but with 28 endings and over 440K words, its not lacking in content.
My one criticism and this is mostly from a development viewpoint is that certain things feel pointless, let me rephrase, it is clearly going to serve a future purpose but as of writing does not. The story introduced in recent updates also needs some tweaking, i get what dragonfire is going for but as of right now its the weakest part writing wise in the whole game which is a shame cause the writing in this game is great, especially with the way regression works you can go through the same passage in two different playthroughs and depending on what order you did it there will be differences in words or sentence structure. I would also suggest that how clothing is used be tweaked, right now there isnt a lot of flavour, would be kind of cool if doing certain activiities in different clothes caused different options to occur.
Played through the game mutiple times and honestly for how small the game is compared to some much larger text games this one is very good and nails what it's going for. As a big age regression this game hit's what I want more of in a game that's primary focus is Age regression and portraying that in a gradual transformation with your actions, words and appearence slowly reflecting that in the dialouge and your characters actions,
While the game is PG13 it is still fun and somewhat refreshing way to get that expeirence where so many games either will jump straight to baby, glossing over the transformation and any imbetween ages and most portrayls of those inbetween ages are usually done in ABDL scenarios.
The story will always go through same story beats on repeat playthroughs the interesting develpments occuring based on the state that you go into a particular story beat with. With your state of mind effecting your characters perception of activities and your status affecting what your physically capable of, one playthrough allowing you to climb a tree uninhibbited while in another you won't be able to do simple math. Playing near the end and rereading the journal entries and seeing as the writing style and quaility slowly change or degrade with you is a fun sight, looking at the height chart or the traits tabs letting you be fully aware of where you stand in the group lets you take in every step of the transformation.
There is so much love and detail that go into the game in regards to how your transformation effects the flavor without chaning the game, as your wordage goes from mature and direct to simple and flowery. Highschool report cards changing to Middleschool and eventually Elementry school. As you slowly begin to fit in with the girls around you and attempts to not tag along or enjoy events fail, highlighting the snowball tumble.
The story is pretty simple for the most part and unoffensive, being a baby sitter slowly becoming just like the girls he's babysitting. The ending being determined by how much you allow yourself to go along with the party and how you treat individuals at the party. The characterization of each character isn't half bad for what it is you get a good idea of who each character is and can naturally pick up on traits to lean towards a particular ending. Some people find the forced transformation part of the story mean spirited or outright evil but the game never gets that mean spirited with it and your character rarely reacts in a way that you would feel bad or outright hate the people transforming him. For the most part your character rarely rides it out well enough only transforming as much as you allow him too, and the major negative reactions only coming out in endings where you severly mistreated characters.
The endings are either heartfelt or lean more towards a comedic edge, if you were an asshole to 4 little girls then maybe your deserved what you got. XD
Great game for those looking for a gradual AR/TG game,
Complete game. And been this way for a looong while. Don't even know why it has 0 at the front of it's version number.
Interconnected and highly variable content. You have a VERY high degree of freedom in the order of events and whatever happens to MC is reflected throughout the rest of the game. I don't think there's any other game on this site that can rival this one in this aspect.
Focused on AR. Probably a real treat for those who are into it. I'm not, but even being put off by that, the overall quality of the game is undeniable.
Invol as it is meant to be. No pretending, no stalling, MC is really NOT given a way out of this. He can put up a fight, and he does seem like he genuinely wants to when he does. However don't expect him to win that fight, tis a stacked deck you're looking at - a 16 year old nobody against a witch and a half, and no they don't care about [b]him[/b] in this.
The core of the plot makes no sense. It really doesn't. Not much you can do about it, there's really only 2 possible plot core types that make sense for these kinds of games - the unfortunate accidents and the sick tyrants. This is one of the games where we're dealing with sick tyrants but the plot is trying to pretend that they are not. They'll give you excuses, try to defend their bullshit, but a fact is a fact - no one with even a shred of compassion would do the things they do to a person. Trying to overwrite a person's identity is worse than murder, it basically IS murder with the added atrocity of treating the victim as a reusable resource (in this case a "canvas" for a new little girl... what, did the "mother" forget how new kids are made the normal way or something?). I get not wanting your characters to look like sick psychopaths, but that's NOT something you can avoid when writing a non-accidental invol game, the weak pretence just makes them worse.
The visual side is sorely underrepresented. Really needs more pictures.
People should read the tags before playing any game. There is an involuntary tag for a reason. The whole point is that your transformation is out of your control. If the setting was like you could choose to not do the transformation, it would ruin it for me. I don't like that gimmic of him originally being a girl and curse stuff though
All in all, I love this game. it's clear that the developer has put serious effort into this to make it immersive and interesting. The game has good story line and the gameplay is also gameplay is great. The writing changes depending on your traits being a half-cat or having lisp and so on. Most of the games just put a transformation and be done with it. Here, I genuinely feel like your traits are always remembered and even in the future those things have effects.
I see, that the 4 year old ending was changed that mother changed her son on a whim for the player to start (now) her life as a 3 year old. I think that's probably for the best since it's one thing for emily and others but it ticks me off that mother would do something irresponsible like that. EXCEPT sexuality. As the mental regression continues, and you decide to change your sexuality, there's not much about it other than discription.
the updates are frequent enough and I think they're not meager or unimportant so it feels like developer gives quite a lot of attention to this game.
overall 9.5/10 for AR+TF fetish
