Quite a nice game, without any bugs that I could see, and with some nice gifs/images to go with the text.
However there are a couple of rough edges - the most annoying is the way that energy is used in the game. It turns it into a grind because even activities that you'd think would be restful use up large amounts of your energy reserves, so you spend far too much time napping/sleeping/bathing in order to regenerate enough energy to do something else. I think with a simple tweak to how much energy is used up the playability of this game would be hugely improved. The other issue - only mildly annoying - relates to the links for moving around. Within the house every room has to be accessed via the living room and to go to bed (which is vital to recuperate that energy!) involves several clicks each time.
I do think it's a fun game and it's still enjoyable.
You say if stuck look at help,but when I look there to find out how buying with the laptop works it just says buy dildos with laptop. The laptop only has masturbate. Do I need more corruption? Do I need to train throat more? It doesn't say! Please fill out your help more or add greyed out options that say 'you need this or this to activate'. It's a good game, but the mechanics are confusing (Still haven't found 'liberty' to allow you to walk at night).
Can't say I really care for this one. It's alright, but it's not great. It's good enough to kill a night or so with it though.
It's your average "girl sim", like something like "Girl Life", complete with that janky "foreign country" feel to it. I can't say that it's particularly fun, it's grindy as hell, yet a bit less than usual life sim games. The pics are nice though.
Fetishes are pretty varied, which is good. Something that irks me the most though, is that there's a clear lack of any TF in the game. Despite it being on TF Games Site. The TF Theme tags would have you believe that it has this TF content, but it really doesn't.
Age progression / regression? The game gives you the option to choose your age at the start. The AP content in this game is just the character growing up normally. Someone naturally growing up isn't something I'd see as a fetish/kink (but the internet is weird). Aging naturaly isn't really a TF in regards to what people are lookig for on the site though. Now that I think about it, AP is a bit of a weird one since everyone is aging in almost every game. AR content is just the ability to have your character start under the age of 18.
Invol/Vol - Pretty sure this is just in regards to the rape content in the game. Which isn't TF, despite being in the "TF Themes". Which is mainly for things like (in)voluntary transformations. Not if your character doesn't consent to vanilla sex or not.
MC/Corruption/Slow - People can be on the fence with this one, but in my opinion, MC/Corruption on their own doesn't constitute a TF game. Going from being a "good girl" to a "bad girl" isn't a transformation, it's a progression. Even if it's "slow".
"Oh but that's just semantics!" It's not. The game has a "Corruption" counter, but it could have just as easily been called sluttiness or anything else that suggests the PC is becoming more promiscuous. Doesn't suddenly make it TF. Same goes for the parents/family. Them being more open to their kid being a bit of a whore, isn't really a corruption TF. IF the character had some aura or something about them that makes people more influenced by suggestion or something, then yeah, I could see it. But the PC's dad agreeing to a blowjob from their daughter isn't a TF. It's just bad parenting.
If this game had the little tag that says it's part of the Hypnopics Collective, I'd have given it a pass. But it's not, and it's not a TF game. You can huff and puff that it's gatekeeping, and that "I don't care if it doesn't have TF, the game is good. Why does TF even matter? Plenty of other games don't have TF and are on the site!", but until this game has actual TF content, it's a fish out of water in terms of the site. Right now it's just skirting through loopholes with the TF Theme tags by using them for content that's technically in the game but isn't actually TF. Not to mention the official site rules state that the game has to have physical TF somewhere in the game to count as a TF game. Even more so if it has a Patreon.
I'm only being a sourpuss because it's out of its element here at TF Games site. Apart from that, it's worth a play. If I had saw it on another site, I wouldn't give it as a hard time. It's still grindy, mind you, and it's not an amazing game, but it's alright enough for a few wank sessions. Ignoring the lack of TF, there's a multitude of kinks and fetishes that's in the game, even some that others don't touch. So that's points in my book. You can tell the dev made it with "love, passion and eager" whatever that's supposed to mean. Hopefully in the future the game will actually have content that's worthy of the high honor of being on TF Games Site. I'm looking forward to when that time comes. Hopefully it's sooner rather than later.
Game is and has been a broken buggy mess for a long time through a lot of updates. The latest "feature" in the current release is a menu widget that immediately throws up errors from the moment you finish character creation. There's no possibloe way the developer could have failed to notice this if they'd so much as test-played even a single time, and I can only assume they just didn't care but released it anyway hoping some poor fools would throw more money to buy cheat codes from their funding site.
In previous versions there was some content and I assume it's probably still in there somewhere if you can find a way to get to it before you give up because of all the other problems. But at present "gameplay" mostly seems to consist of making a character, telling the game that yes you want to take a shower and brush your hair every day, then proceeding to trial-and-error your way through options that mostly don't allow you to do anything except look at things you can't afford, until eventualy you start searching for new locations to go to, at which point this happens:
1) You get raped by some random passerby!
2) Restore from save. Buy a gun.
3) Ok, now you can avoid it.
4) But now you get raped by some OTHER random passerby!
So then you disable "get raped evey time you do anything" from the settings menu, and you're treated to such riveting gameplay as getting watch tv with your $sibling_type, and running out of energy but not being able to sleep because it's not late enough in the day so your only options are to walk back and forth between rooms dozens of time, or to take a shower a bunch of times to get enough energy to make time pass. Or doing fun things like "leap out the window" of your house to get back to the living room, because apparently English is not the dev's native langguage.
Game is an awful waste of time. Give it a pass.
It's still grindy, like many Sugarcube sandbox games are. On the other hand, there is some clear progression which helps, and MariaMod is a very aggressive developer, continually adding features and flattenning bugs. There's also an emerging narrative, which is gratifying.
You might want to try it!
It could be one of the best of its kind but at the moment it´s a broken buggy mess.
Days not advancing while sleeping so you need to do stuff over midnight to advance.
If you change into a bikini and go to the beach you can close your browser because it becomes a dead end no emergency escape button can get you out.
Ah yes, the emergency escape button gives you another type of error :-D
Showering not possible due to -55 shower gel, so lets relax for days in the bathtube.. thats more effective for regaining energy than sleeping anyway.
The whole sibling stuff is broken from the first second.
I could go on and on... if the dev would´ve cared to play this release (6.0.0) only one f... time for lets say ten minutes i´m sure a light bulb would´ve appeared.
Besides that the atmosphere is great and while playing it i wanted to see and explore more and more..until the point where our virgin Maria is fucked by a random guy without the option to say no.
I restarted and in that second run another one took her virginity again without a chance to escape the situation.
This game is worth a look but try to not get too addicted because it will disappoint you eventually.
One of the two best games I have ever played!
It does have some defects and it is not a huge game, but it is so seductive, it is so corruptible and it does it in a way I have never seen, sometimes slowly and exactly the way I imagine it , I just wanted it to last much longer to unlock everything, I hope the game keeps updating!
I think everyone should try it, if it’s not their type of game at least they’ll have some fun, my only problem with this game is that it’s not bigger and the interracial content at the beginning, but otherwise it’s one of the only games that I downloaded it so I never lose again!
Updated for 5.1.0
Sibling content completely broken and not in the game outside of errors in the code where you'd normally see the options or action links. Many photos are STILL NOT moved into the proper folders and some folders are outright missing. Stop working on whatever content you have planned for 5.1.1 and FIX THE EXISTING CONTENT. It's understandable that new content will bring new bugs but to just ignore the bugs from months ago is just lazy.
Each update is more broken than the last... dead ends, missing text, black screens... this game has potential but the dev MUST get the bugs fixed ASAP before adding in more broken content. Your fans will support you can show patience but it isn't infinite.
its a bloody funn game
but the game stat gain are like a parabola instead of diminishing returns
im sure once fixed it will become a first class game
Like most decent potentially grindy games... This one has a smartphone added to enter cheat codes. So you can get right into the thick of things.
This game has a lot of potential. The grindyness of corrupting family members is a bitch though. Maybe certain acts bump the corruption a few levels more than other acts. Also, the shortage of variety in the wardrobe is an issue. Also not exactly fond of forced anything, so the forced interracial stuff before my character is ready for that sort of thing is jarring and irritating. I don't mind the writing and can ignore most of the typos and syntax errors. Overall, I enjoy this game, faults and all. Keep up the good work and maybe add a little more choices.
I really love your game, it's amazing !!
Yes there are bugs in every updates, but the new scenes and the story progression are cool and the new kinks keep the game entertaining !
I don't know what do you plan to do in the future update, but I'm pretty curious to see Jack or his friends again (becoming their bitch or something else) or new content with the parents (more incest with them could be interesting I'm sure).
You're doing a great job keep going and thank you :)
P.S. : Are you planning to add "pregnancy", with all the cum in her cunt I'm sure you can create good dilemma between keeping the baby or not.
This game has steadily improved. Choices have been expanded for almost every scene. This is fun sex filled romp into a young adults life. Keep up the great work and all the new areas.
I really like this game, there are a couple of simple mechanics which all tie into one semi-CYOA scenario and a good selection of imagery and writing. HOWEVER. There's quite a fork at the beginning depending on the age you select, which I'm not a fan of. There is a small grind but it's not too bad to experience the game's corruption side.
I'm sorry, but it is impossible to give this game a good review. Why don't you give the player any choices? Having your character giving head in order to get direction back home is not only akward and silly but downright stupid. It does not fit the character at all with the stats listed. In fact, you are prevented such actions elsewhere, so why here? I could list lot of other situations where the game suddenly jumps into weird and highly unrealistic situations, leaving the player no choice what so ever. It seems rushed and unrefined. Half the fun is not knowing what your choice would lead to in these kind of games. Take your time. People are different, and choose differently in games.
It seems a fun enough game, but the description is completely false:
- There are dead pic links, I counted at least 4 in the last update.
- The Cheat Menu is only for patreons (which is not a bad thing per se, but it's simply not true that this option exists for any player)
- You can buy your apartment and create your brothel, both of which... are completely meaningless in the game as it is.
In any case, the game has potential and seems good. But still very far away from a complete game.
Pretty fun game from.what I've explored so far. I have managed to find one bug though. When working at the school's gloryhole, when the text says the client chooses you, nothing else happens, but when it says they choose another girl, you get a scene and payment, so it's probably something to do with an accidentally swapped If, Then, Else statement.
This really should be listed as a Demo, or at least Alpha. It is definitely not Complete! It is a mediocre game with only a small amount of content that is often grindy and dull. It railroads you onto a single path despite being set-up to appear a CYOA style game (at least one place you literally cannot select the alternative option). The interface is painfuly bad and the game often lacks meaningful feedback. There are a couple of bits near the end that are well done, but are definitely not worth the time investment with the rest of the game.
Young Maria is a fun game, although it can be terribly grindy at many points in the game, especially when trying to earn money. The sex scenes are hot as there are nice gifs to accompany everything, but I definitely think there should be more of a written description to accompany the gifs than a simple line of dialogue.
Sex does get rather boring pretty quickly as the corruption element quickly becomes obselete as you have more and more sex. An expansion of the school events would be nice, especially with some friends, maybe a bully or secret admirer that you could corrupt slowly. I'd also love another family member, maybe an older brother to start your path of corruption, as of now the corruption is first gained by either going out and finding Jack or reading an erotic novel.
Overall I'd give the game a 3/5 stars as it was satifying to play, but seemed to still be lacking in terms of content and replayability.
This is a great start, and it shows promise. I hope to see more of it soon. As has been mentioned before, having the option to say 'no' to people would help, especially the random dude who forces the player to give him head. Being able to say 'no' to that would be an improvement.
I went out on the street, encountered a random guy, and the main character was at his home sucking his dick after one and a half sentences of dialogue from him. Without an internal voice for the main character, I'm even being generous with saying "my character decided to", because the next page has him forcing you to your knees. I... I think I just got raped in the game? But the author didn't write it as if that was what I was supposed to get out of it. Do you, "Maria", think that this is how normal human interactions work? If this was not supposed to be a rape scene, why wasn't I given the option to NOT just suck the dick of the first black guy I encountered on the street? Player agency should be a top priority when designing an open world game like this, and if you're going to force the player to do something they might not want to do, there needs to be a reason for it.
Speaking of open worlds and agency, SOME kind of direction for the player is obligatory for good game design. The only directions given is "You were happy for an opportunity to find new friends and discover new places.", which I outlined above is shallow as fuck in in terms of human interaction. This game feels less finished than almost any other game on this site.
I like this kind of game a lot, but it is too early to be worth playing. The game is a never-ending Monday. There is no way to earn money. There are a few random encounters, but once you find all locations you stop being able to have random encounters. The only thing you can do in the park is relax. The only sexual content I found in my playthrough is you meet a random black dude while wandering aimlessly and decide to give him a blowjob (no options available).
[EDIT] The 'Play now' online version includes a lot of bugfixes that are not in the offline version. Also, the smartphone is essential to making progress. No smartphone, next to no content. So don't ignore it like I did.
Extremely barebones, little to no content, but it says it's Complete...
