For a first release, this game is very promising and very well done. There is a lot of potential to make it into something that is a lot of fun to play. It is still playable, albeit not perfectly balanced, at a level that is impressive for a first release. I hope the author continues to develop this game.

From a technical standpoint, job well done for an entry level game. Good renders, easy to use interface.

From a gameplay perspective, oh boy. No sexual content except implied sex at best in one optional scene, repetitive encounters (which I understand may be because it's so new.) Winning is based on RNG entirely. You have to get an item then get out of the dungeon. I got the item, but couldn't find the exit from the dungeon in time because RNG dictated I'd find tons of encounters I had seen ten times over already and no longer needed money as it was basically irrelevant at that point.

The transformations are limited in scope, but this also may be a limitation of a new game. The biggest sin in my opinion is that the game so far tries to be a sexy game and a game game and fails to do either adequately. I can't tell if it's intended to be sexually appealing or if there's a bare minimum of that in nudity just to squeeze in some semblance of sex.

As someone whose favorite transformation type has to be inanimate, I have to say I am excited to see this game expand, get more encounters, and hopefully get more renders and descriptions for statue transformations. There needs to be more inanimate TF on this site and I'm happy to see someone provide it.

Especially when most games tagged with the "Object" tag is simply objects turning into other objects, it's nice to see an Object tag that has a person turning into an object.

The decent renders are pretty much everything this game has going for it. The gameplay is scarce, the encounters repetitive and the only TFs to be found are petrification and turning into non-morphic animals which, as TFs go, are probably the most boring and uninteresting possible. Worst of all, the game's sole victory condition is entirely RNG dependent which, combined with the draconian time limit, means that most runs are hopeless by no fault of your own.

The first thing to say is that this game is quite good, especially considering how new it is.  The core gameplay is all there and works quite well, and with a little thought you can really get into a solid rythemn exploring the dungeon.  The transformation content generally depends on whether you win or lose random encounters, so you may see it immediatly or it may take longer.

This game definitely isn't for everyone, I will say that.  It's a roguelike, so some runs will be great and others will end in quick disaster.  Never get too attached to any one playthrough, since even a short run of bad luck can be the end.  The TF content also mostly starts and ends at petrification, so if that's not your thing, something to keep in mind.

Overall, it's a fun and lite-but-challenging game that's definitely worth a try.
