The Experiment

Game is now playable on mobile devices!

Version 0.4 is now released. If updating from an earlier version, you will have to create a new save file.

Introduction:
This game is a Rogue-lite dungeon crawler which I started developing to teach myself programming and improve my art skills in illustrator. In this game you play as someone who signs up for (or doesn't sign up for) experimental testing and finds themselves transformed into a woman and traversing a number of lewd tests. Each of the tests involves its own theme and fetishes and will have you navigating dungeons, investigating rooms, and ultimately trying to find the escape. Every test involves some degree of random generation so every run attempt will be different. All art is developed by myself and will continue to be implemented when I get around to making it.

Gameplay:
As you move between and investigate rooms there is chance you will run into an encounter that will test one or more of your stats (willpower, intellect, strength, agility) using a d100 roll. Encounters have the potential to deal damage to either your characters Health (physical) or Resistance (sexy). When Resistance drops to 0, your character will orgasm which results in a semi-permanent lasting negative status and a small health loss. If Health reaches 0 your character passes out and you are returned to the main staging area where you can spend upgrade points on improving your stats or unlocking skills and spend credits on purchasing one-time use gear for your next attempt.

The game is intended to be hard and utilizes a fair bit of random number generation so don't expect to succeed a test on your first few runs. Upgrade points are awarded even for losing so use each attempt to try new things, explore the tests, and discover the optimal paths that lead to a greater chance of success. 

Currently the game has:
- 3 fully completed areas each with 3 possible endings
- Character portrait that changes based on your character's various states
- An upgrade system that allows you to improve general stats and unlock helpful skills
- A shop system to purchase one-time use items to improve your odds
- An achievement system

Available Tests:
Area 1 - A cavern themed test with tentacle vines, mind-controlling fungi, and arousing pink mist - Features: Mind Control, Tentacle Vines, Extreme Arousal

Area 2 - A dungeon themed test where you must complete requests for 3 seperate succubi sisters in order to earn your passage - Features: Lesdom, Genital Transformation, Chastity, BDSM, and Femdom

Area 3 - An Alien/Spaceship themed test where you must repair a damaged spaceship in order to escape - Features: Alien Sex, Machine Sex, Egg Impregnation


Help! I'm Lost!
A helpful tip document and walkthrough document have now been added to the download. If you find you aren't able to figure out what to do I encourage you to check out the Tips document (also found in the Walkthrough section) which provides hints and tips without explicitly explaining how to succeed. If you do not have an interest in solving the games puzzles yourself feel free to consult the walkthrough document which contains explicit spoilers. If you find the game is too hard or too complex I would also encourage you to comment that as a review or on the forum post so I can improve the gameplay/discovery experience.

If you find any bugs or have suggestions for the game please comment them in the forum thread. I monitor it closely and am invested in making this game as good as it can be.

You are provided an opportunity to participate in mysterious experimental testing. Do you accept? Will you succeed? 

You! Plus some others you may find along the way.

Helpful Tips:
- The two most powerful items in the games are the vibrator and cargo shorts. The game ramps in difficulty after your first orgasm and both vibrators and cargo shorts help delay that.
- The 3rd attempt (non-encounter) at investigating an area will always be successful.
- Intellect is the most useful proactive stat for getting early Credits and Upgrade Points. You'll fail more encounters since most encounters do not test for it but you'll clear rooms and objectives faster.
- A couple points in health and resistance go a long way to surviving!

Negative Orgasm Effect Explanations:
- Horny = -20 Willpower
- Distracted = -20 Intellect
- Frail = -20 Strength
- Sluggish = -20 Agility
- Insatiable = Induces a 10% chance when moving for investigating for the character to instead hit themselves for -1 resistance
- Eager = Increases the odds of finding encounters when moving or investigating by 10%
- Aroused = All effects that hit resistance hit for an additional resistance, goes away after orgasming
- Exhausted = Lose an additional health from orgasming

The Cavern:
Objectives:
- To beat the cavern you need to find both the key and the exit. After finding one of the objectives the "Boss" will spawn and block the path and harder encounters are added to the pool. Additional objectives spawn in to aid in getting past the "Boss"; getting past the boss without doing the side objectives is possible but EXTREMELY hard.

Cavern Set-Up and Navigation:
- The cavern is set up with 20 independant rooms all connected to the main cavern. Each room has to be explored to visit.
- Two cavern rooms, "the mushroom tunnel" and "the deep cavern" are the only rooms that can be "discovered" without exploring as you are transported there upon failing certain encounters.

Encounters in the Cavern:
- From most likely to least likely, encounters appear through either exploring, investigating, or moving between rooms.
- If the game selects an objective room (key or escape) to be explored, it is more likely to spawn an encounter instead. The result is that the key or escape rooms are typically found later on (but not always).

General Strategy:
- In the cavern, the best strategy i've found is to explore as many rooms as possible before fully investigating them since tougher encounters spawn once you've found either the key or the exit.
- Once you've found both the key and exit, try returning to rooms you've previously explored to see if something new spawned.


The Dungeon:
Objectives:
- To beat the dungeon you need to talk to each of the three succubus sisters and complete 2 tasks for them each. The succubi can always be found in their respective rooms.
- Once you satisfy all the Succubi, you will have to return to the dungeon entrance where a final "end game" occurs. There are 3 possible "end games".

Dungeon Set-up and Navigation:
- The Dungeon layout is randomized each time but will always follow some basic rules:
- It will always be a 4x5 grid.
- The 4 corners will always be the Succubi rooms and the portal room.
- The main dungeon spawn point will always be sector 1x3 (the top middle) of the grid.
- Adjacent to each of the succubi rooms will always be each's "unique rooms". These are identifiable by the color referenced (the color of each succubi is specified at the game start but is randomized each run).
- One room, the "Map Room", contains a map that will display the coordinates and names of each location on the randomized map. 

Getting & Completing Tasks:
- Talking to a succubus who you have the correct genital state for does not require a roll so target the one you correspond with if possible.
- If you do not have the correct Genital State, they will refuse to give you a task unless you can succeed in an Intellect roll.
- If you fail a roll to talk with a succubus, you can try again once you either have the correct genital state or after you've completed a task for a different succubus.
- If you successfully talk to a succubus you can ask her for a task to complete. Once you do her task you will need to return to her to comeplete it.
- The only way to remember what a task you were given was is to talk to the corresponding succubus again. Although I might get around to programming in an "in-game notepad" for now a real notepad might work wonders for you.

Chastity & You:
- Being locked up makes it so you do not orgasm at 0 resistance but comes with a multitude of negatives:
- Once you hit 0 Resistance your Intellect and Willpower are set to 0 until you orgasm or raise it above 0.
- Hitting -10 Resistance causes an auto-loss.
- Encounters are inherently worse when you are locked in chastity and many cause automatic resistance damage without a roll.
- If you are below 0 resistance you can initiate an orgasm by talking to the dominatrix succubus in her room to restore you to max resistance.
- There are 2 ways to unlock yourself:
- Find a key potentially hidden in one of the rooms (the key is on a random loot table, can only be found once, and consumes on use).
- Complete the dominatrix succubus' tasks.
- Unlocking yourself from chastity will reset your resistance to 1 if it is in the negatives.

General Strategy:
- The best strategy for completing the dungeon is to avoid investigating needless rooms and instead beeline it for each of the corners. Investigate each of the succubi rooms and try to get tasks early so that you always have a plan where to head next.
- If you find yourself unable to open the final door after completing all the tasks, perhaps the Lead Succubus Sister can help?

Major System Update: Rolling an encounter no longer stops movement (in most cases).
- Exceptions to this include:
- Exploring in the cavern (rolling an encounter means you do not find a new location)

The Experiment is a game that has different themes, depending on the "room" you join in the game. The game is mainly in text, not overwhelming but you definite need to do some reading. There is a well made western style avator with changable body parts which is quite impressive. The UI itself is prelim but neatly done.

You are drawn to an experiment of some sorts for no reason and was turned into a redhead along with some other changes in no time, which the character feels totally okay.

Then you are given a laptop to pick a room to run through. I picked the second room. It is a rectangular shape area with blocks of rooms with different random? encounters. There is a hint of Trap Quest but not as intensive and focused. Without a target (trap quest: look for the stairs, or altar, or explore the map) it quickly becomes confusing if not a bit boring. I have to find my own way to entertain myself. say, should I do it anticlockwise, clockwise, or stay in the middle rooms? They are all random encounters in a big rectangle so there seems like little point exploring the map. So I went North, West, South, East and investigate anything that was thrown at me.

The lewd part of the game is okay. body transformation, femdom, penis growing and chastity, bondage, etc. more themes in that other room I did not explore. if this is your main focus, give it a go.

This seems to be one of those dungeon explorer type of games, similar to Trap Quest.

Althought at the moment the game is more textual than visual, there is a concerted attempted by the author to provide their own artwork for the game which is admirable. Though I'd highly suggest a clickable map for exploring/navigating the dungeons, although I do like that each dungeon room also shows completion status, so perhaps just add a visual minimap in the top right corner of the screen?

I'd also like to see hotkeys for navigation, maybe if you do make the dungeons traversibe, one could navigate using WASD keys, and search the dungeon with spacebar? That'd surely be more streamlined for the end user, and then you could just focus on the dungeon-specific content.

The author is jokingly harsh on themselves, when you go to equip items, they self-shift blame for being lazy and only adding a single outfit. Bah, don't worry about artwork for now, just focus on adding more dungeon varieties, perhaps some semblence of a story behind it all. Either way, it has been years since I played Trap Quest, I'm positively excited about what this game can become. But what I can say with certainty is that you can supplement the drawn artwork with pictures from the web, at least until you find the time or outsource the artwork. Hand drawn is a nice touch, but I'm cautious of it eating away precious dev time.

So, overall, glad to be the first reviewer, the game already has working dungeons so check them out, although it's definitely an early beta.
