Trap Quest is a roguelike dungeon crawl virtual reality TF game.
If you are using Windows Glulxe and finding that the game is really slow then please please please try switching to Windows Git which is much much more lightweight and five times faster. The weakness is that a few users have reported save files sometimes failing to load.
In response to the reviews complaining "I can't do X even though I want to" or "The game is railroading me towards Y", this is not a sandbox game for you to become the dominant and take control of the miniverse, this is a roguelike where if you're very lucky you might survive with most of your mental faculties intact. For more details, read the FAQ. If you want a nice forgiving sandbox game where you can become the dominant, or where there's no meaningful downside to always choosing the slutty option, please feel free to play pretty much every other well fleshed out game in this genre of random encounters and transformation, including but not limited to Corruption of Champions and Bimbo Mall Battle.

Trap Quest is one of a kind. It is surely an iconic tf game earning it own place in the tf game history, just like Cursed for Rag or CoC.
The main theme of the game is MtF and sissification. However the game does offer a lot more than that. You will find the setting page very long with a lot of choices. You can disable whatever you do not want.
The sad news. The game has far exceeded what the inform7 engine can offer after a decade of work putting into it. With little formating and graphic support and a performance issue, the very active creater has to go around the engine for solutions. The result turns out to be acceptable, but far from perfection.
Inform 7 is a full TEXT engine. I remember the time when we need to try out the commands not sure what to do. It took a lot of exploring to learn that you can do something to the statue in the third room. We would try to kick it attack it use it wear it drop it drink it take it... Now, the creator has put images around with the available commands all listed out available for clicking. It is a lot easier for newbies... and at the same time taking so much fun out of it. BTW, does anyone know that "I" stand for inventory and you can "Look me" to check yourself up?
Anyway, other iconic inform 7 games:
Trap Quest is the only "alive" inform 7 project. The author is adding new content frequently. While it would take quite some time to get use to the interface, I think it worth the time doing so.
Does this game even NEED reviews at this point?
Anyway... after seeing the previous review I just felt like I had to add a few things.
IIRC, There's only 4 regions in the free version of the game ATM. 5th one is still supporters-only for now.
And the fact that there are so many of them is not even nearly as great as it sounds.
If you're actually doing most of the things that review talked about, or in other words if you're actively taking measures to win this becomes a VERY stretched game.
Add to that a fact that it's a one-way one-time build-up and we have a problem. Human body doesn't mirror this game's set-up, it doesn't come with save and restore functions. In simpler words you can't just go "oh darn it's getting late, I'll just dump my arousal to a file for the nigh and then restore it from there and get to the jacking-off part tomorrow", humans don't work like that.
Now, a big chunk of this problem is there because this game is probably the oldest one alive (being actively developed that is) on this site (definitely the oldest one alive from the notable ones), and every man and his dog know it inside-out by now, but a problem is still a problem.
It definitely WAS the best game on this site at some point, and in some ways probably still is. Yet at the same time in some ways it's dead (died from old age and overused organs I'd say) and will probably forever remain that way regardless of how well it's being developed.
Well that's what it's like as erotic material anyway.
As a game it has a different problem.
And again, it's somewhat age-related.
You know how some people get urges to change things up once in a while. Like re-arranging the furniture in one's room, and not because the previous arrangement was flawed in some way, but rather because the person just got too used to it?
Well from my point of view something largely similar has been happening to this game a lot over the years.
It's experienced a lot of gameplay changes that didn't make any sense it any better, and, like I said, to me looked like just changes for the sake of changes.
Which in itself wouldn't be a problem if many of them didn't make the experience WORSE.
Yep, that's what I'm saying. It used to be a better GAME at some point than it is now. MUCH better actually.
But if we're being honest, none of what I (or any other reviewers) said above matters.
If you've never tried this game yourself, you're DEFINITELY missing out (unless you're on this site by some sort of mistake, in which case hello, welcome, and GTHO for your own sake).
And if you have you don't need a reviewer's opinion AT ALL, you have your own.
This is the game that introduced me to this site, and having played dozens of the most popular ones on here now, I still think this is one of the best.
Game Score: 9/10
Hotness Score: 9/10
This isn't a linear story, it's a dynamic world with randomized elements, but it has lots of fantastically written encounters.
The initial complexity isn't that high, despite a somewhat unique interface, but there is quite a bit of depth here, and every playthrough ends up being unique.
As unpredictable occurrences slowly transform your body and mind, you must struggle if you want to avoid being turned into a total slut who is more fit for pleasuring your foes than succeeding in combat.
In this game within a game you'll be tempted to lose your sense of self, giving in to numerous lustful encounters, but the choices you make have enduring consequences, and it is quite a struggle to find your way back once you let go, indeed, sometimes it's nearly impossible.
This is a hard game to win. You have 3 critical stats, and there are ways to increase them, but there are tons of things that will impede you, reduce those stats, trap you in various types of bondage, leave you helpless as perverse foes close in on you, and the like.
One of the key aspects of this game is clothing. Clothing is protection, clothing changes how others react to you, clothing can make you strong, and clothing can be your undoing. Some items are cursed, leaving you unable to remove them easily. Some items reduce your stats. Some articles of clothing try to reshape who you are, changing you and the way you can interact with the world. Do not become too attached to your clothing though, some traps can transform it into something else, some traps and foes can destroy it, but the connection between you and the things you choose (or are forced) to wear is very strong in this game.
Then there are survival stats, you need to eat, you need to drink, you need to go to the bathroom, you need to sleep, you need to get exercise. Doing all these things can be challenging as you navigate the puzzles and wandering foes in this game, but not doing them will make you weaker, more vulnerable, more able to be overcome and forced to sucumb.
And then there are addictions, the more you do things (or are forced to do things), the more you begin to like them, and the less you'll be able to resist doing them when the opportunity provides itself.
If you want to become dominant, to master this world, to stalk the buildings and forests without fear, then you're going to need a combination of skill and luck. You'll need to gather items of power, carefully curating your wardrobe, gaining skills, and avoiding dozens of potential pitfalls. Even then, once you're a powerhouse, get too arrogant and you can find yourself as a receptacle for the lusts of all manner of beings. There are currently 5 regions in the game, 4 of them are randomly generated each time, and they progress in difficulty. However, some are optional, and sometimes you'll find an early opening with some good fortune and be able to blitz to the end [not spoiling it] in less than an hour. Probably, you'll spend your first time wandering around lost and getting thoroughly fucked.
This game has a fantastic concept and design, and has gone through many improvements in the past couple years. The encounters and interactions are fantastically written, but it's very rare where you're stuck in a situation where you don't have options available to you, unless you're losing very badly. Even then, there's something glorious about getting dominated by 3 enemies at the same time. Humiliating as it may be, it can be fascinating to see the mechanics of this game turn you into a sexual plaything, and so defeat can have a silver lining, or at least a residue that you get coated in.
This game has massive replay value (probably the highest of any on this site). I've played it between 20 and 50 times, though some have ended in defeat. I don't think I've ever finished it without being changed in some notable way. There have been times I've won and collected winnings in the millions of dollars, and times I've scraped through only to find I'm now in debt, and am forced to work it off with my corrupted body and mind.
TLDR: If you're into feminization, submission, domination, transformation, a host of other fetishes, or even just adventurous sex, play this game, it's super hot, challenging and fun.
Probably my favorite game on here, The only thing I would like added is being able to grow a cock while playing as a girl.
There's nothing to say that hasn't already been said. This is a masterpiece, this is art, call it what you want. I keep coming back to it, and It's in my top 5.
Keep up the good work guys!
