Between is a game with slow transformation of the main character inspired by games on the site like Afterlife, Timeless Pantheon, Magical Camp, and quite a few more. In particular, I was inspired by their ability to tell a quality story with compelling characters independent of the TF themes while also using said themes as a pillar of the story and lore.

Below is my planned scope for it...

  • Enter an contemporary/urban/science fantasy story that involves magic, original supernatural beings, and transformations of our male lead. All of this is made with a focus on narrative, characterization, worldbuilding, and storytelling.

  • Explore unique themed dungeons with their own compelling mini-story arcs and find more extreme TFs throughout the game's various bad ends and temporary forms throughout a given dungeon.

  • Accept or resist your transformation by making choices to sway the main character's attitude on the situation, take on player controlled transformation customization via TFs being connected to class unlocks, and hunt out hidden TFs through dungeon stories and side quests.

  • Battle in a responsive, dynamic, and user friendly take on the RPG Maker battle system that emphasizes strategy. That means there is no grinding, no random battles, and a variety of other quality of life features.

  • Take on high challenge, optional bosses if you really want to test your strategies and mastery of the combat system

I'm very open to feedback and opinions, so please provide that via the discussion thread or reviews (whichever is appropriate based on the rules and content) if you're willing to provide.

 

REMINDERS:

  • You can use saves from earlier versions. Chapter end saves are considered the safest ones to stay compatible. To transfer your save, move the save folder under 'www' to replace the one in the new game files
  • You can speed through dialogue using the "Page Down" button/R1 button on controller. This helps to redo scenes much quicker (though it does risk cutscenes potentially breaking if you're not careful. Save often if you do.)
  • ATTENTION MAC USERS: You need to put the "Game" file in your Application folder. Or else any action that accesses the save system will fail and crash the game.

 

IF YOU LIKE THIS GAME, YOU COULD TRY...

  • The Discord for the game and any other projects I make.
  • Oathbreaker - Also a slow TF TG RPG, but this one using tactical RPG combat like Fire Emblem. (A collaboration with Icarue)
  • Petrichor - An escape room type game and a short, side story that takes place in the same universe as this with it's own cast of characters.

Between is an original contemporary/urban/science fantasy game that involves magic, original supernatural beings, and transformations of our male lead. It is inspired by games on the site like Afterlife, Timeless Pantheon, Magical Camp, and more... as well as commerical titles like the Trails/Kiseki series, the Persona series, and the Xenoblade series.

The main character (a recently hired employee of a company called IMEA Engineering) and his companions are thrown into a struggle for their survival as they must learn to work with or resist powers beyond their imaginations.

As the nature of "what's going on" is part of the mystery of the story, I will leave it at that. Expect a focus on narrative, characterization, worldbuilding, and storytelling as the main character slowly changes to a new, more feminine form.

 

NOTE: For full disclosure, the "X" rating covers small segments of the game as it stands. Most of the content is more akin to an R rating.

Spoiler Free Missables Guide (updated 0.6 release)

    • 3 P******* Affection points

    • 3 C**** affection points

    • 5 M** Affection points

    • +3 Acceptance Points (1 acquirable throughout game)

Some notes on the nature of some of these content elements...

Acceptance: Acceptance defines the Main Character's current attitude on the transformations they're undergoing. This can fall in one of five categories ranging from complete rejection to full acceptance. Typically, this value is determined for dialogue on how the MC reacts to a change when it happens, or other story elements that may be tied to it.

Affection: Affection points are a measure of how fondly a character thinks of the main character. It is important to note that low affection points will not lock you out of content. Think of it more like a rivalry/friendship system, though more on the scale of friend to something much more deeper instead. A platonic relationship doesn't have to be worse than an intimate one, for example.

“Horny” points: A value that will be used to track the MC’s openness to more casual sexual content. Think of it as an opt-in/opt-out for later sexually explicit content. The hope of doing it this way is to make it more naturally integrated into the story of the MC’c character.

One of the best games on this site.

Pretty interesting and creative game. If you like RPG Maker games this is definitely one of the better ones out there. In its current version (which at the time of writing is 0.6.1) it has more content than I would say most of the RPG maker games on the site, and there are many compelling narratives with good artwork, original worldbuilding and mechanics. Not to mention that the creator of the game continues to update it so (at least at the time of writing) it is one of the few RPG Maker games that gets regularly updated. It has also actually slow MTF transformation that is shaped by your decisions to some extent. 

If you are looking for something like a "sex simulation" however this game is not it.

I guess I'm not starving enough for a game right now to really enjoy this one.

I'm very turned off by it mechanically and storywise. To each their own as far as art and writing goes. However my largest issues with this "game" is that it's got so many instances of time wasting moments that don't feed or enrich the growth of the story or characters. For example, there are "fights/battles" that you are actually unable to win, and if you somehow do, you still get a game over. Then there also battles that you just can't lose. From a player perpective, I can't stand this kind of 1980's style arcade game where the boss is preprogramed to win/lose, why even have the battle? It's simple, don't put that kind of crap in your game. Just write it out. If not, it just looks like you attempting to be clever with your game's pace.

I'm also not a fan or blinding white screens that last for minute to try to showcase some artistic element from the story in an attempt to be emersive.


At least there are no bugs though, so theres that.

Only just finished the prologue and already its one of the most well put together games i've seen on this site, ashamed that it took me so long to play.

TL;DR: A great experience I can recommend to anyone that has no major beef with RPG maker games. Not recommended if you're only in it for the lewds. 

The story is a bit confusing at first, but gradually you understand more and more of the picture. It paces the story reasonably well, constantly rewarding your time with gradual reveals.

The characters are sympathetic and intersting. The world-building paints a unique picture I haven't seen anywhere else. The writing is solid, and never dragged the story down.  

One of the game's strenghts over other good RPG maker games is its combat system. The game has no XP/leveling, so you never need to grind at any point. Fairly early, a class system is introduced that allows you to combine a class and gear to make your own combination of skills for each character. There is also a tactic system which is global, and adds additional skills and bonuses for each character. Not all the skills you get from gear are amazing, but they are all fairly balanced so there's no definitive best combination.

The game features a number of seriously challenging puzzles. The hardest ones are optional. Fortunately for people like me who has limited patience, there is a walkthrough file attached. I recommend you use it whenever you are stuck, but otherwise leave it alone as much as possible for the most personalized experience. There are missable equipment. None of it is critical, so you don't need to go back if you "failed" to do something.

There are a few bad endings with major transformations, which some people like to look for. That's not my jam, but nice as an option for those that are into that.

Unlike many games with more railroaded transformations, you have some control over how much you want to transform and how much you want to accept it. Your transformations and level of acceptance alters some dialogue, but I have not tested to how large extent.
