"The HERS Project" is a TG-themed transformation game by tempestreturns in the RAGS engine.
After his car breaks down, a young man stumbles upon The HERS Project -- an underground research complex that seems dedicated to transforming young men into submissive feminine sex objects. He must navigate through the various stations of the complex in order to both change himself back and escape, all the while avoiding the many traps and pitfalls that await him.
The Player is a young man en route to visit his girlfriend on Spring Break. He has no default name.
A sentient A.I. located in HERS-3X, the initial station the player in the complex the player discovers. She seems suspicious and at best is harboring her own motives and at worst is insane.
The chief of security for HERS-0X (The Index).
A security officer for HERS-0X (The Index) and Stacy's sister.
The HERS Project registration photographer. She makes IDs for new employees of HERS. Her sister is Tracy.
The HERS Project receptionist found in HERS-0X.
The Player will encounter a variety of other test subjects throughout the HERS Project.
A very well developed game so far. Transformations are all at the start of the game, but once they've occurred it is just minor cosmetic adjustments from there (clothing, etc) for your avatar. There is a lot of interactivity in this game as you go through the story and unlock the puzzles that lead to further story branches. With this comes a lot of bad endings and (currently) the good endings aren't finished by this game version.
Graphically the game is good with your avatar and the characters that you meet throughout the adventure. For a RAGS game this is one where you will rarely become lost, but for some of the more obscure puzzles you will be looking for a guide to unlock how to solve them.
A worthwhile game to play and strongly recommended.
Really great game for what is there, but sadly hasn't been updated on forever. So sad that it's a dead game. Wish someone would adapt this to something new.
Considering the fact that the last update for the game was 6 years ago, it's no wonder that it doesn't work. The latest version of RAGS can't process this file. Unless the author updates it, there isn't much point in downloading it.
I don't like RAGS games for the most part. I think they're too tedious, and the engine is clunky and annoying.
I really like this game. The writing is well done, there is tons of personality, the artwork is good and creative across the board, and once I hit the end of available content, FOR ONCE I didn't want to delete an old game that I don't expect to ever be finished.
I hope someday it manages to get the rest fleshed out, because what we have so far is amazing. Even the stuff that caters to fetishes I don't have is good. That's rare. Really rare. Before playing this, I wasn't sure that could be done.
tempestreturns, I sincerely hope you someday find a way of finishing this. I can tell that a lot of love went into this game, and it shows. If you ever try to develop something else (for RAGS or a different engine), I'll play it in a heartbeat.
If completed, this game would no doubt be a 10/10. What we have now is still phenomenal.
This game is a "classic", but has a lot of issues. I feel like there is a lot of dead ends and "what the fuck do I do" moments. I wish the mechanics were more openly explained to the player. The world is very detailed but feels mazelike.
Overall I gotta say this game is pretty darn good but pitfalls into the same traps as other point and click adventure games.
