Fresh Starts is a game where you finally move away from your home town to the big city, but Hutinberg is an unforgiving place and you might need to do... immoral things in order to make your place in the town. To what lengths are you willing to go to stay in the city? Will you stay true to who you are, or will you change to try to fit in? Only time will tell...
As of Alpha 0.0.13a, the game --still-- heavily revolves around sissification of the PC, most event revolving around said theme. However, there are plans in the future to open new paths, but also to implement a female character. The game currently doesn't offer much story wise at the time, but all the content is optional, which felt really important as the game is supposed to be a "sandbox". However, major features keep being added with each update, making the game quite complex despite its early stage of development.

Nice game, the mechanics works fine. Missed the importance of the laptop for loosing dignity(you need that for loosing dignity)
Curious what the storyline is going to do. It needs some synchronisation: You get the task to wear a butplug while running around in a latex maid dress, with butplug and chastidy cage for your internet job.
It's fantastic start to a game, and I look forward to what comes of this in the future.
I must say though, content is not being added in a sensible order.
To start with you only had one off side quests on your computer.
Then a school system was added without any real content besides rocking up and studying. The patch notes indicate there is more, but I haven't had the patience to reach it.
Finally, what looks to be the main quest line (the Red Vixen pub relationship storyline) has appeared. But you can only progress once a week, and each progression is extremely minor.
Quite frankly you'll quickly find there's nothing to do and you'll just be skipping 7 days at a time to get to the next tiny piece of questline.
Personally I think you should give this one a miss until the weekly limitation is removed, or until there is so much extra content that you can fill a dozen weeks.
The game should just be a wake up and go to university button, followed by a visit the pub button with no locations or computer and one or two shops that get added in as they are needed for the storyline.
Considering it is version 0.0.10, this is not a bad start. Changes occur once every week once after you get to the said content. For the rest of the week, you grind food shower work school gym.
This is a great game. Easy to navigate fun to play and having a choice of starting character is great. One bug I found is with the tuition in 10b. When I try to pay the fee I get the following. Error:<<if>>:bad conditional expression in <<if>> clause: unexpected identifier. It's either a bug or I have gone wrong somewhere.
So far it's a very good concept, but the QoL oprtions are bugged. Every morning the debug escape has to be used as it breaks somewhere after it applies the time for breakfast and shower but before it flags them as complete. Also randomly interspersed with every action involving changing outfits.Otherwisethe gameplay is solid enough and show potential if one is into a slower burn and selecting the options for themselves.
I'll be keeping an eye out for some significant bug fixes, but I'm excited to try again.
That was a wonderfully fast update and many bugs were addresed. There are still a few liying in wait, but it made the game playable enough to track trough many options. the gym still binds up making it impossible to use after your first trip, unless you manually change your outfit.
There's a very solid foundation for a game here, but very little going on without player driving or foreknowledge. I can see the framework of a decent game here building itself up and I know with a little expansion and some better in-character engagement this game could be one of the greats.
One of the major failings of slow-burn TF games is player engagement during the tedium. Strong QoL features, clear paths, and intermittent burst of activity are critical to make it happen. Fresh Start is clearly building toward those, but doesn't have all of them yet. The game is currently at a point where you can experience the tedium, then buy your way clear fo some of it via the alarm clock (When the routines are working) and outfit saving. There's also framework for more to make things easier.
What's lacking is feedback and clear pathing. Feedback on what resources have been used by automation or when something has been altered outside of the various hypnotic content the player has to choose to engage in. Clear pathing in what actions are suggested, something to lead the player to make the right choices to engage the content they want. I can see the intentions to include that sort if guidance and from the earlier glitches I encountered, it's likely the kind of reporting I'm asking about is already in the back ground, we just need it more accessible.
On the subject of intermittent activity, there's some strong flashes here and there, but there could stand to be more and they would make a great way to guide the player without having to eternally use the porn/hypno method (For instance, In several hours of playing I encountered a single opportunity to decrease dignity, but reducing dignity is needed for most of the lewd content)
TL;DR: There is massive potential here. There's framework obviously in place for something good, but the execution so far leaves the player wandering in circles with too little feedback as to what effect they're even having.
