Wow, this may be one of the strongest starts to a story focused game I've seen on the site!

It's very early days so there's not a lot to go on right now, but if the current quality of writing can be maintained it bodes well for the future.

In terms of gameplay, there's not really much to it; you make some choices, those choices change the outcome of an event slightly, and occasionally adjust some hidden background stats that will presumeably play a part in later events.  It's simplistic, but works well for the purposes of the story the author seems to be trying to tell - and it's the story where this really shines. 

There are currently 2 paths in the game: A classic 'maid' path, which will presumeably introduce all the typical play on power dynamics and submission that we normally see from this kind of story (not a bad thing!); and a rather more original path that seems to be turning the MC into a young heiress.  I'm very interested to see where the latter path goes, due to the rarity of finding a feminisation story that puts the MC into a position of relative power.

I enjoyed what is currently available for both paths quite a lot.  The maid path is arguably slightly further along and can have the MC in a maids uniform before the current content ends, but they both give a sense of what to expect going forwards.  It's also wonderful to find a story where the premise is driven froward by encouragement and character motivation, rather than mindless cruelty at the hands of a master or mistress who doesn't give two shits the MCs feelings like so many other games.

This isn't a game for someone just looking to get their rocks off asap, but fans of well written, believable feminisation should enjoy it.  I look forward to seeing how it develops and what other routes the author introduces in the future!

This game is also meant to be a very slow burn. Yes please!<3 
and from what I've read and played you're off to a great start. Thank you for the amount of effort you've already put in this, it really shows and it feels like you're keeping the bigger picture in mind. The writing is really good and paired with the interface and images gives great immersion. If this is a teaser for what to come, I can't wait to get more !

While still in it's early stages I like what's there so far. I really enjoyed both paths, Can't wait to see how this progresses.

So first of all Great game!
Pretty good writing i quickly skimmed through it but so far i like the art its pretty attractive.

And the clothing options that hes going to wear its all good start for a decent feminization game.

-Spoilers-
I secretly hope that the nanites path is going to be an ABDL path, because their aint to much of those on TF site... 
((if that happens I probably concider becomming a patreon too but we will see ^^))
But even if that is not the case i will keep an eye on this game seems good so far.

Second i would love to mention that the best part you can do the time skip is to the start where the choices divert
Instead of at the start in to the first choice.

You have a pretty obvious moment where the story diverts and by the looks of it 2 more options in the works.
I would place the start skip there ^^

Hm

smart phone friendly

initial phase slow feminisation game

2 classioc rutes active

highly unfinished

minimal TF content

personal opinion: it does not add anything to the genre and i find the story telling booring.

It may improve in the future like any project given enough work and creativity(yet to find even a spark of it)
