Hard Times in Hornstown


Hornstown posterB

This is
Hard Times in Hornstown, possibly the largest fetish-themed text adventure on the internet. It has more than 13 million characters (2.6 million words!) worth of handwritten scenes and code illustrated with more than a thousand high resolution images and a player avatar which dynamically changes according to your choices. And you certainly won't be lonely, not with our 300 NPCs to meet, and greet and do kinky things with.

You can be male, female, straight, gay, bi, cis, trans or all of the above in a single playthrough. Your body and attitude changes with your decisions letting you be as masculine, feminine, submissive or dominant as you wish while you go through crazy sexcapades, committed relationships, threesomes, orgies and all kinds of kink-centric adventures.
There are many outfits to wear, jobs to try - both erotic and 'mundane with extras', dates to go on (there is an in-game dating app), and people to meet.
There is a huge number of storylines available (check the walkthrough: https://hornstown.com/walkthrough/), including  sissyfication, feminization, BDSM, leather, latex, sex toys, humiliation, objectification, cuckolding, erotic hypnosis, prostitution, bimbo/himbo content and a lot more.

The game is complete at this point but will continue to be expanded with new content indefinitely. Hornstown receives at least 200 000 characters (40 000 words) of new content each month without fail.

Patrons get big content updates 1 month earlier and get extra character customisation options at the beginning (they can start the game as a woman and a few other options).
All these options are available in-game for any player.

Starting from January 2022, people can also support us directly at https://hornstown.com/crypto

Higher tier patrons also get access to Hornstown Tales,
a series of erotic short novels set in Hornstown and written fom a first person perspective. They are freely available for patrons or purchasable on Amazon.

1.: Flowers for Trisha, a 135k characters long tale of feminization and sissification written from a man's perspective
2.: Seven Nights, a 110k characters long tale of venturing into the wolrd of BDSM, written from the submissive's perspective. Mm, Mf, Fm, Ff versions available.
3.: Mistress of the Circus, a 110k character tales long tale of hypnotism, humiliation and kink.

I do not recommend playing the online version of this, it has a lot of issues. If you do play the online version save after pretty much EVERY action you take or risk losing progress. Theres a lot of white screen dead ends for no reason, During Basis industires story, during the Janitor story, at the Gym, at the park, the library, and had a single white screen happen while talking to Mrs. Spencer. Save often.

I played an older version and really liked it. It had and has an enormous amount of content.

I don't mind the (potential) in game adds in the current version. I guess it is fair for non patreons.
However, you can no longer have local save files (I don't understand the reason for this). Unfortunately, that's why I stopped playing.

Pros of this game:

- Wide variety of fetishes. While the main focus does land squarely on sissification or outright MtF transformation alongside submission, there's a whole heap of other options to explore. Initially, it's harder to start a game as a more masculine and more dominant character, but many routes do have options specifically geared towards these types of PCs.

- There's some hot stuff here. Despite some fetishes falling outside of my usual preferences, the NPC renders can be really hot and the antics that you the PC get up to can be delightfully dirty. Really fun.

- Lots of content. If there is anything in this game that you find interesting, check the walkthrough on it, because odds are it expands into its own storyline with multiple branches and outcomes. Some characters are nothing more than one night stands, but other characters enter into relationships with the player and their attitudes and sometimes even appearance may change depending on your own choices - some with a lot less leeway for error than others.


Cons of this game:

- The core gameplay loop isn't super fun. Work provides a very low amount of money (50-100) compared to the cost of actually interacting with elements in the game. The camwhoring profession is an exception to this but even it is gated by extremely low initial rewards and the amount of in game time and effort it takes for it to establish itself as a high earning powerhouse. 

- Writing and code can both get messy at times. Older routes feature significantly subpar writing compared to newer ones, and some routes can glitch out and break mid playthrough. Additionally, loading an autosave or a new save can sometimes create unexpected mix ups with what is currently being rendered in the game's code - this can lead to characters instantly rejecting you or closing off storylines, or worse yet lead to bad ends when the game's internal data is so confused it thinks you've skipped a full day of gameplay. 

- Slow on browser. The .exe itself actually runs quite smoothly, but the game online is very laggy and is quite frustrating to play. 

- Player character looks significantly worse than the other models in the game, and hair colours other than brown lead to the hair being set too far down the model's head.


Overall, if you're willing to put up with the bad, this game has an incredible amount of content. It can test your patience at times, but I find myself returning every couple of months to explore new routes and sometimes redo the old. I very much enjoy Hornstown, flaws and all.

The game has 3d renders for various scenes, the characters, etc, so visually, it looks great. The various storylines one can take are well-written, and almost free of typos. In any case, be it visual or text, the content is there.

My biggest problem is the paid content pushing and advertisin. I'll start with the latter: the advertisements are always on, even in the download version. This is a problem if you're on a data capped connection, and there is no way to turn them off. The former problem is the obnxious textwall of "this content is available on Patreon" in the various in-game pages.

Monetizing content is fine. If you're giving us a free demo, just put your Patreon link in the intro, having it everywhere at all times is just annoying, and takes up precious screen real estate.


good content, just needs to avoid the whole raid shadow legends monetization strategy
