Interns of Ecstasy Island is going to be an erotic visual novel featuring random events and some roleplay elements. The story includes body/gender transformation, mind control and also sex. There's probably going to be sex it the game. Definitely. (Eventually)
Like most visual novels, the game will present a branching story with accompanying graphics, and allow the player to make choices for their character at various points. In addition, I plan to include random events and encounters. It's a completely different game every time you play! The game won't change radically, but the order of events will should change each time you play, with certain events only happening by chance, or others dependent on things you've done and things that have been done to you.
The Transformation Content and Kinky Stuff:
The game is based around an involuntary male-to-female transformation. After that, it's planned to include: body transformation, breast expansion, mind control, sex (of course sex!) between men and women, likely women and women. For anything else...we'll see how it plays out.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT LINKS: Due to compatibility issues with later versions of Mac OS, Mac versions are now a separate download. Please hover over the note by the download links to make sure you are grabbing the correct version.
For new players: Thanks for trying my game! Please keep in mind that this is an early WIP. While the script is currently over 249,000 words, I have only just started on the portion I consider the be the real heart of the game, and most of the features I'm planning on adding are not yet included. Additionally: There is currently no sound or music in the game.
IMPORTANT NOTE for returning players: As with the previous versions, it is essential that you start a new game. As many new variables have been added throughout the game, old saves will cause crashes and other bugs.
What's new? (Version 0.161)
Looks like I messed up the job selection change I made in 0.152. I'd forgotten that I'd previously given the player two opportunities to choose their job. I've restored the scene I removed but changed the job options.
I've also addressed some of the variables for the beach party scene to make attending and skipping work properly (I hope).
• Restored the original Day 19 evaluation scene, but made all job types available.
• Fixed the special work event check so that the beach party should only happen once and should be skippable.
• Switched the text window back to hiding during scene transitions to get rid of the black bar that was appearing on the bottom of the screen.
You now have the (completely optional) opportunity to support me in my kind of erotic creative endeavors. Like half the people on the Internet, I've added a Patreon page:
You play as a fairly average American college student, ending his third year at the university. All your friends are talking about a summer internship opportunity they discovered. They figure, if you need to get some work experience during the break anyway, why not do it at a tropical resort? You submit your application, get accepted, and, when you arrive, find that it's everything you could have imagined...but nothing you expected!
You're an American college student currently finishing up your junior year at your university.
While you're reluctant to admit it, you'd have to describe yourself as a fairly average guy. You're not a complete slouch scholastically, and you manage to stay in shape, but you have friends who are a lot smarter and more athletic than you. You're by no means ugly, but the girls frequently pass by you when you're hanging out with the taller, more attractive guys in your circle of friends.
How to Play:
1) Download and unpack the archive.
2) Locate and launch the executable.
3) Click on "Start Game" from the main menu.
4) Click the "Apply Now" button the the laptop screen.
5) Click anywhere on screen to advance the story.
6) Decisions will be presented below the text in the left side window. Click on the option you wish to choose.
7) Using your mouse scroll wheel over the text window will scroll the window up and down. Scrolling up over the picture window will "roll back" the game, allowing you to make a different choice (if you've changed your mind).
8) Right-clicking at any time will bring up the game menu, allowing you to save, restore or change options.
9) Holding down the CTRL key will skip through any text you've already seen. Alternatively, you can select "Start Skipping" from the preferences menu.
I want to like this game. Everything in it promises an excellent and well written story. The problem is that is exactly what it is, a story. Not a single one of your choices makes any difference to the copy-and-paste railroad of words that this is made up of.
The problem this auther has is that they keep padding out what is already there, instead of advancing the story and adding in some meaningful choices that have obvious differences. To use a crude term, this game needs more length, not endless girth.
The other problem is while there is a tiny bit of tf in this game, it is completly hidden and requires you to make a totally not obvious choice to get the ball rolling, and even if you make that choice you are still at the mercy of the stupid RNG events thing that make up 90% of the 'game' so far and is totally skippable once you have read it once.
The other bit that pisses me off is the stupid dream sequence where you do nothing but pick some shapes, no explanation at what they are supposed to mean so really you have no choice in the matter, and again this 'choice' makes no difference to the remainder of the game.
I really pity the shmuks that actually give money to this, because as far as I can see this is going absolutely nowhere, and no amount of bragging about word count can detract from the fact that this game hasnt advanced in any meaningful way.
My advice to anyone looking at this would be to download it, read through the well written story then delete it and forget about it. As a novel, its good. A game it is not, nor will it ever be.
Text walls, limited choices, lesbian spam, overwriting the decisions of the player, and being generally boring limit this game considerably. Should really be a HTML game as there no animation to speak of and all of the characters are just pictures of characters in Honey Select but instead it's a really slow extremely limited novel that doesn't seem to know what to do with topic. If you want people to read a book write fanfiction.
I like this game a lot, all I really wish is that, instead of time and energy going away when you've done all the events you can in one place, it'd be nice if it'd instead repeat some events, like being able to hook up in the club again. Was kind of disappointed by the lack of MF sex I encountered, but that might've been bad luck. Anyway, game's awesome, hoping to see more of it in the future. ♥
Game is excellent on its face with a ludicrous amount of potential - the only issue is it needs alot of refinement before its complete and its still lacking in the playability factor that makes me even want to start a game in the first place. The skeleton is there, but the organs have yet to fully develop. That said, its shaping up to be an amazing work of love.
1. The game has TF elements... supposedly? - these are either ridicuously difficult to find or basically impercievable to the charachters appearance or gameplay mechanics. These really need to be fleshed out quick because the enjoyment of altering your charachter is basically lost. I understand the "rogue like" element but after 12 plays I havent seen a single change other than hair color.
2. Masterbation exists, but it serves no purpose as of yet.
3. Sex is almost impossible unless you pick all the right answers for a few specific
4. There are all these puzzles and interactions that basically lead to dead ends and never go anywhere that I can tell.
The game is improving, but sprzeterobs's review below is still a fair critique. I suspect that the creator of the game is still working through getting a lot of the background game mechanics right, and those aren't exactly exciting updates for the players, even though they may be important.
If you're playing this game a second, third, or fifteenth time, the Control button is your friend. To say that there are walls of text to scroll through is not an unfair criticism. Hold down Control and they'll speed past. There are a lot of days where this will find you right back in your room to end the day, though I think as the game gets updated, there will be fewer of those days.
Sex is sparce in this game. There's a scene you can access that pretty much amounts to date rape (get drunk and taken advantage of), there's a scene where you witness others having sex, and there's another scene where you can be pressured into sexual activity. The game doesn't force you to engage in any sexual activity if you're roleplaying a guy turned into a chick that would rather avoid that aspect of life. As the story continues, I sspect there will be more opportunities for sexual activity - but since the game creator is focused on background stuff for the most part, I suspect it's going to be a while before we see significant story changes.
