Not terrible, but not great either. If it was a bit more fleshed out it wouldn't be too bad.

TF happens shortly before the game begins. Though there's a fair amount of "improving" you can do on yourself. Images are appropriate and varied, and I quite like the "fertility meter" thing as well (though I'd prefer it being part of the hud and not something you have to click through to see). 

Honestly I couldn't understand much of what was going on though. You're bombarded by walls of text that function as story content, but aren't written well enough. Plenty of spelling errors and weird grammar, but thankfully not as much as a Blauz game (which is apparently one of the creator's primary inspirations). You can follow along with it fine enough, but it won't be winning any awards for writing.

Game itsef boils down to escaping from a town where you were being hunted down as a male. Which means TF'ing into a female, and finding a means of escape, as well as managing money and earning it. There's a few different ways of escaping, which you can find through playing the game, though from what I've found, the endings all lead to the same ones (depending on your variables when escaping). An interesting feature is to avoid getting pregnant, which becomes increasingly more difficult as the game goes on and you need more things, and the game features a fertility cycle for the character. Have sex on a safe day, and you're in the clear, on a medium risk one, you're playing with fire, on a dangerous day, congrats. Game doesn't end at that point, but rather continues on, so you can keep playing just as long as you don't reach full term. 

A major gripe though is the training and working. You're forced to wait like 15-30s for them to complete. It doesn't really add much to gameplay, as I find myself leaving the tab anyway to look at other things. Maybe if the gif files associated with them varied each time you did it, they wouldn't be too bad, but most of your time playing the game will be spent watching those. Food quickly becomes a non-issue as well. There's not much difficulty once you reach jobs that pay out a good amount of cash. Maybe if something happened like you had to find a new hideout and all the required costs associated with it, or something else to make you more financially vunerable the push to do increasingly risky acts would make more sense, but at this point it doesn't too much. Not to mention it's rather quick to corrupt yourself, with only 1 job really keeping you away from that (eventually you'll reach a point where you'll say "okay" to everyone's advances, rather quickly). I'd prefer if the pole dancing job at least had a smaller impact on corruption compared to the brothel (and blacksmith as well, since that ramps up really quick too).

But yeah, it's an alright game. Not great. You can finish it in about 45 minutes or so. All 3 escape types. I just wish there was more meat to it, as it's a good platform, but not much else.

I've just started, but it is a very fun game so far!  One thing that I wish would change is instead of timed events, like working, add a button at the bottom that lets us continue whenever we like.  Also, I'd love it if you would add more and larger breast and butt sizes to the game.

Oh this one has a ton of potential. It suffers from balancing issues though, and the timed actions are annoying and should be removed. I'd like to see some things expanded on though, i mean the game overs are sudden and breif, you'll be going about your buisness when BAM! Game Over! one page description and your done.

The game is definatly on the right track though and i'm looking forward to future updates.

I love this game, particulary the preggo content. It pushes all my buttons.

 

There are some spelling errors and I don't particularly care for the main story line, but the alternate endings are A+ in my book. Would love to see some of the pregnancy content expanded more.

 

What I would like to see: Note, spoiler, highlight to view:

I would love to see the player character be able to get dosed with the same stuff you can give your female room mate, that makes her more submissive towards the madam's instructions to always be pregnant.

This is quite nice for your first game. It has many elements to it, several mysteries to solves, several paths to take.

It is perhaps a little unbalanced, as if you take the "good" path, it gets very grindy. For instance, making money. You make 5 times more money by working at the brothel than at the beauty salon. So far I've found 3 different endings. I like the animations, I like the story. Exercising and working can have some slightly annoying timed gifs though. I mean, you have to wait 10 or so seconds for the gif to finish, while a % counter goes up to 100. I understand the reasoning behind it, to convey to the player that this is taking time, but.. after watching it for the 30th time, it loses its charm.

English as a second language is common around here, so I'm used to that.  I would try to suggest re-writes or looking for typos but honestly this is just arduous to read. 

Every page is just a giant block of text.  There's no paragraph breaks or anything.  It's just too much work to read through something like that, to such a degree that I'm just not even interested in trying.  

So the first change I think the creator should make is to apply some basic text formatting so that the content is legible.
