The game is good - just for me at the moment there are to many paths not finshed off yet but the game is still playable and you can still get to the last day but it is a case of working out what is finshed and whats not.
Can't wait till it is more complete to play properly :)
For what is here it is pretty good. But I wouldn't come back expecting much in the way of new content after any given update. Really do check the changelog to see if what you are waiting for has been adressed as the public version is 6 months behind the patreon. I expect to play it again in December. With the significant delay in development I would not expect to have new content to play until may.
The size of updates is a truly disapointing aspect of this game. Once a month the Author adds up to 10k words focusing on adding one-ish days to one characters content. This means that once a month you can eek out another 5-10 minutes of game play before you have nothing else to do in game. This makes updates very unsatisfying. While the patreon version could be updated monthly so that those who are willing to fund this project are placated, I honestly believe that the game would experience more growth in our community if updates were only released here every 3 months and included 3 updates worth of content. This would make each update more fullfilling.
Now onto the game and how it is made. The characters are rich and intersting with unique motivations and act based on those motivations. I would say that the implementation of the various characters is among the best on this forum.
The choices lead to your character being either hyper masculine or feminized. You can balance inbetween the two but the feel of maintaining a middle of the road character doesn't feel as developed. Though, I am not sure why you would chose to pursue such a line as you will miss out on a lot of content.
There are a lot of fetishes represented in this game. Chances are you can find one that you are into. However, to really get the tf content it is possible you will need to pursue fetishes that you really are not interested in. That in addition to the frustrating size of updates are the biggest weaknesses of the game.

The game has some cool ideas. I love the 90s setting, the writing is engaging, the RPG event is very nice, good selection of images. I just want more of the same, please, like 10x more :)
Okay, so I have a love-hate relationship with this game. It's got great writing, and a number of different characters you can choose to pursue or dodge; with more to come, most likely. Despite the number of likes this game has on this site, it is hands down one of the best I've ever played - more so than certain games with well over 800+ likes. I'd say the game is rather ambitious, with it aiming to give you both M/F and M/M content, and then giving you variations on that content depending on whether you're seen as more submissive or dominant (influenced by your decisions throughout the game). And that is exactly where my first issue starts with this game.
It's going to take a while to write content for every character in this game, as well as the variations on those routes too. That would be fine, except the rate the game is being written is - in my opinion, way too slow. The author has stated he works multiple jobs, so I can understand to some degree, but the game is updated usually once a month (with delays ranging from a few days to a week occasionally). These updates are usually about 6k-10k words on one specific character route and one specific variation (dom or sub route). These updates are chosen via voting on the authors Patreon, and this is where my second issue begins. Some characters in these games are bound to be fan favourites, and will inevitably get the majority of the vote and will get their content completed faster, but for everybody who isn't interested in those characters...well, they have some waiting to do until the specific thing they wanted to see finally gets an update. I feel like this is why people unsubscribe from the game. This is where the games slow update schedule really hurts it, because people WILL lose interest after months of waiting, and won't want to pay for what they have no interest in, right?
The conundrum here is that unsubscribing won't get faster updates. As of the time I last checked the author was around ~$70p/m off reaching a Patreon threshold where he could quit a job and dedicate more time to the game. I certainly believe the game is worth subscribing to as it has great potential. To the authors credit, although the updates are small, what's there is usually GREAT. I would urge anybody reading this to try the game out for themselves. I myself still want to see bigger updates myself though, and perhaps a rotating set of choices to vote for so that one character isn't hogging all the updates.
Pros: Great writing, Very hot M/F and M/M content, Dom/sub variations, Different characters with different personalities, Author is responsive.
Cons: Slow and small updates, Certain characters get more updates due to popular votes while others are lacking,
I Like this game. It is intriguing. But after playing this update and the last update I barely saw anymore game time. I guess I will have to wait 6 months and 6 updates before I feel like it is worth returning.
