The Fixer is an adult life sim lite visual novel. You take the role of our protagonist, Samantha, who is a Fixer. As a Fixer, you are tasked with making "problems" go away. From investigating industrial sabotage to diplomacy between factions. All the while trying to balance your normal day to day life.
The world is suffering. Disease, economic and government collapse and the death of over half the population has lead to most people living in extreme strife. The town of Blaston, where the story is set, fared a little better than most and so you and your sister try to make your way there to seek refuge.
After playing through one of the origin stories, you find yourself in Blaston, having been rescued by the cities main power base and in return you agree to work for them as a "Fixer". Someone who solves potentially sensitive problems using tact, diplomacy or underhanded means. Will you manage to make a difference to the town and it's power brokers or will you fall into the pit of depravity and despair along with the majority of residents in Blaston?
She is our protagonist of the story. Her name, skin/hair colour are all customizable to your liking and play a large part in the story. As the Fixer, you will be tasked with getting close to people to fulfill your mission, and in many cases you will change your appearance to better suit the preferences of those you are trying to befriend.
Sandbox gameplay around a more traditional branching narrative.
Character customization. Change your skin and hair colour. More to follow.
Wardrobe system that lets you mix and match any clothes you have bought as well as colour them to your liking.
Pregnancy system. It's all fun and games till your belly starts to grow
You have had your life saved by being given a new experimental body after you died in your last one. One that can have it's features changed so your race and apperance is no longer set in stone. You boss expects you to use this ability and work for them as a Fixer.
Samantha (Name customisable) - This is you.
Dr Tucker - Your boss. He will assign you missions related to the Institute.
Emily - Your sister, She will help you get adjusted to your new body and the world you woke up in.
I like the games art, menus story for the most part.... what bothers me is your a fixer that supposted to salve problem for the company cuz your tied to them which makes sense but you have to go to school pay rent ajust to be a girl amonge other things that just dose not make sense..... i feel theres to much tacked on for your char to do. on one hand they need you to do a normal life but they also hold your had and force you to do so many things like go to school and pass exams and also be a secret agent for them i don't buy it
This is fun and interesting, looking forward to more!
Nice graphics, nice game system, interesting characters and UI.
I'd raise the body-modification cost, if 17 quick turns of flyers can get you a complete body modification, it feels too easy.
I'd love to see a height modification option.
I like that you can choose the colors of your clothes, but it feels a bit unrealistic that you can change them at will. Maybe you could make it so that we could buy them in the color we want at the store?
Overall, great clothing system!
I'd move the "go out" icon on the right, because on the left I always end up clicking it by instinct when I want to go to the bedroom.
Why does the sister stay there if you can't talk with her?
Why is his new body, by default, "fat"? Is it because it's been degrading?
Great job overall, I hope you'll continue to work on this!
This is a game I'll be keeping my eye on to see how it develops. Right now, besides going to school, there's only one Fixer mission and it's underwhelming - the protagonist says much. Still, it makes sense in the since she's a newbie at this and untrained. Baby steps as they say.
If you want to know where the game is going sex wise, you can go to the bar, where it looks like she'll go down the rabbit hole of accepting more and more bad behavior from the patrons and ultimately will probably end up pregnant because of it. It's rather repetitive to get to that point, though. I imagine this is more a placeholder to provide some sexual encounters until the missions she gets working for the institute lead her to possibly be impregnated there. Just guessing.
Some of the other criticisms others have written seem to be fair as well. It seems rather arbitrary to have the protagonist be legally unrelated to the sister, and for her to completely vanish from the game. She seems to exist purely to introduce the situation and then poof. This isn't something that can't be fixed later as the game develops. The author may just not want to bother writing for the sister right now.
I will keep an eye on this one. I'm looking forward to seeing how it develops.
very impressive first releases.
the interface is polished, everything seems to have been setup for story development, nice work!
note: please don't forget to include footwear ;-)
I will stay tuned for more to see where the game is going, but please keep up the good work
I have encountered a bug - when fatigue is too high to proceed with automated school sports, the game crashes.
This is up to a great start I think. Good premise, good writing (nice and succinct, but descriptive without errors. A lot of renpy games have a ton of long dialogues), nice clothing / wardrobe system. I don't see the trojan alert on my computer after a scan fwiw. The game could use more activities and random events, maybe some more stats that you can affect (femininity? sluttiness? etc) right now the main character you can be accepting or not in dialogue but it doesn't seem to affect much.
Overall the developer did great work for a first release and I think this is a game to watch.
