Hard Times in Hornsville

Hard Times in Hornsville is a sandbox time management game focusing on adult themes, including several fetishes.
The game is focused on player choice and interaction. Compared to similar games the descriptions are shorter but can vary significantly depending on the players looks, statistics and previous decisions. The content is highly modular, separate pairings and fetishes can be accessed independently from each other. You can become a headstrong, dominant transwoman with a huge dick or a freakishly muscular but meek man working as a submissive housemaid.

The game currently contains:
- more than 1 470 000 characters (about 294 000 words) worth of text
- 189 3D rendered images
- a dynamic player avatar allowing 703.125 combinations
- 40 unique locations to visit
- 38 NPCs to have sex with (18 females, 18 males, 2 shemales)
- fetish content including domination, submission, feminization, exhibitionism, MtF/FtM tramnsformations, vouyerism, bimbos, maids, sissies and more!

This is the alpha state of the game with about 1/2 of the planned content included.

Please be aware: Large content updates happen monthly.The game's latest update is only available for patrons. All updates will eventually become available to everyone.
AlSO IMPORTANT: Plot, Characters and Walkthrough pages are VERY out of date! I will try to actualize them in a few days!

 

Current content:

Pairings (from most to least common): MF, MM, FM, FF
Transformations (from most to least content): MtF, Feminization (without actual physical transformation), Muscle growth, Dumbing down
Fetishes: Player submission, Player dominance, Humiliation, Maids, Crossdressing, Sissyfication, Exhibitionism, Hypnotism, Fuckmachines, Spanking, BDSM, foot worship
Player customization: A highly customizable player character with several available hairstyles, beardstyles, makeup options and clothes
Endings: Five are available( Depraved bum, Lab freak, Sissy mannequin, Fuckmachine victim, Whore\'s plaything)
Other erotic content: Masturbation and prostitution (the ability to pick up hookers of either gender)
Non-erotic content: A complex time and money management system, with purchasable things, jobs and a daily upkeep.


Notes:

- Most featured fetishes have a voluntary and an involuntary access route
- MM content in this game means actual gay content (sex between men), not just the player getting transformed into a woman and then sucking some dicks.
- The more extreme transformations are currently contained in Bad Ends
- There is only one ending available apart from the Bad Ends

QuickFix 09.24.
- Fixed the bug allowing you to repeat Helen's date and when it would say that you missed it even if you didn't
- Fixed a bug where Mrs. Spencer would not adress you correctly when you met her in the mall
- Fixed a bug where one of Tammy's sex scenes would display incorrectly after she hired you to fuck her
- Fixed a bug where 69-ing with Dave would lead to a dead end

Big Content Update 09.19:
This is our biggest update yet, close to half a million characters worth. It consists of:

Alltogether:
- 500k characters (about 100 000 words) of written content
- 36 new images
- The phone, a completely new tool to the game
- 2 New locations
- 16 new, sexable NPCs
- Helen's storyline extended
- Lily's dating scenes extended and reworked
- Dave got a new scene

Gamification (PATRONS ONLY)
- Skills are now harder to increase and more important overall.
- Sex skills are increased by having the appropriate type of sex multiple times.
- Certain places have a dresscode and require you to wear the appropriate clothing to enter.
- Dating Lily and Dave got more complicated but hopefully more rewarding.
- Introducing the phone! Now you can keep track of your contacts and even call some of them if it's needed.
- Introducing the Gift shop: buying things for certain NPCs is needed to advance their storyline
- Introducing the Casino: a chance to earn some money if you are lucky, a chance to earn some money by cheating (unless you get caught...) and a chance to meet some very friendly NPCs
- Introducing Hornsville's main plot! What could be that mysterious app be that you find installed onto your phone?

Whoring 101 (chosen by the community PATRONS ONLY)
- If you are experienced with sex enough you can now earn some money by selling your body. Not all clients are pleasant though. Maybe take care not to be seen as a cheap whore to avoid the really nasty ones.
- If you want to hire whores instead you can look for a pimp who will get you anyone your heart desires. It only costs a little extra...
- Do you have a submissive who adores you and hangs on your every word? Why not send them out to the Red Light district to earn some money for you?


This of course also means that the contents of the previous update became available for everyone. These include:

    Fetishes include humiliation, hypnotism and blackmail

Player attributes
Attributes can enable or disable options in the game but mostly they just modify the results of your actions. Currently tracked attributes are:

Fitness:
Fitness can help you in certain situations and it is also required to woo some of the potential sex partners
Lvl 1 fitness is required to work as a construction labourer and the higher your fitness is the more money you will earn working there
Lvl 1 fitness can currently only be reached by working out in the gym (3 visits are needed)
After that, it can be improved further by continuing to work out in the gym, working as a construction labourer (up to lvl 3) or taking drugs (which can also be purchased in the gym)
Highest level can only be reached by taking drugs
Fitness drops when choosing to masturbate after you have received a massage from Lily

Charm:
Charm is commonly used to make people have sex with you but it has some other applications as well
Lvl 1 charm is required to work as a hotel attendant and the higher your charm is the more money you will earn working there
Lvl 1 charm can be achieved by watching TV (a random event 1:4 chance) or talking to Claire, the nurse in the Experilab clinic
After that it can be improved by working as a lobby attendant, watching TV and in certain random events through the story

Intelligence:
Intelligence is used to find out some additional information about certain situations and it is also required to woo some of the potential sex partners
Intelligence starts at an average level and currently it can only be improved slightly by reading a book
Low  intelligence lowers your pay for several jobs. High intelligence increases your pay when working as a telesales agent.
Intelligence is lowered by taking drugs purchased from Derek and by reading the magazines Lily provides you with in one of her sissyfication events
If you reach the lowest possible intelligence score , there is no current way to raise it back again!

Attitude:
Attitude is used to determine how dominant or submissive you are. It influences a lot of events.
Attitude starts at an average level. Changing it is usually a matter of choice: if you behave agressively and in an assertive manner you will become more dominant and if you let others take charge and never stand up for yourself you will become more submissive.
Extremely submissive characters will be prevented from saying no to several NPC \"requests\", making it harder to avoid certain events.

Sex skills
Sex skills keep track of how good you are at certain types of sex. These are currently underused and only change some minor details in multiple sexual scenes.

Cleaning
This skill is mostly used in keeping track of the \"Maid\" job path. It can be improved there and by working as a janitor. The skill will also increase your pay if you work as a janitor.
Lvl. 1 cleaning can be learned from Mrs. Spencer in her first dialogue
Lvl. 1 cleaning is required to work as a janitor

Masculinity/femininity:
Masculinity/femininity mainly influences opportunities for sex.
It cannot be changed directly but the game will calculate it constantly considering a multitude of other factors.
The surgery option in the clinic allows you to change something specific about your body.
Trying the experimental drugs in the clinic will always make you more feminine in various ways
Buying drugs in the gym will always make you more masculine
Having a beard will make you more masculine. You can decide to grow/remove a beard at home and style it in the saloon
Having body hair will make you more masculine. You can remove it in the clinic or in the saloon.
Certain hairstyles will make you more feminine. You can change your hairstyle in the saloon.

Gender, sex and genitals:
Gender determines the pronouns the game uses when it describes you. Sex is determined by what genitals you have and will influence your sex options.
Gender can be changed at home (check yourself out option) if you are masculine/feminine enough (you need to be at least androgynous in appearance to do it)
Sex can be changed in the clinic using surgery or by taking the experimental drugs. The latter will only change you from male to female (and will not always work)
Surgery is currently the only option to grow a bigger dick

Other:
Hair color, hair style and beard style can all be changed in the stylist\'s saloon (after you read one of the flyers in the city).
Makeup options can also be accessed through the saloon.
Clothes can be changed at home. Basic clothing is available from the start. There are currently two sets of clothing that can be found in the game. (the maid outfit and the sexy lingerei)
Eye and skin color can be changed in the clinic.

NPCs

Mrs. Spencer:
She is your housekeeper. You can talk to her at your house from 8:00 to 10:00.
Talking to her and accepting her help to learn some housekeeping skills will start the \"Maid path\"  Submitting to her will in the upcoming events usually increase your cleaning skills and make you more submissive. If you follow this storyline to the end you will become a maid yourself.
She currently has no sexual content only some light crossdressing

Dr.Marlowe:
He runs the clinical trial in the Experilab clinic. You can learn about this when looking for a job at home.
Taking the pill for the first time will always make you grow boobs (or grow larger ones if you already have some). Taking it again will grant you random changes that make you more feminine.
Eventually he will stop offering money and then he will stop offering the pills altogether
After he stops offering the pills he will want to have sex if the player character is feminine enough.
Having sex with him the first time gives you a coupon you can use for a free surgery at the clinic. You can have sex with him multiple times for no additional reward though.
Teasing him and then denying him his reward will lead to the \"Lab Freak\" bad end

Claire:
She is the nurse you see when you visit the Experilab clinic.
Talking to her will allow you to woo her and grant you an increase in charm unless you already had one. Flirting with her is only successful if you already have some charm.
After you have successfully aroused her interests she can be visited each day to have some fun in one of the empty rooms with.
Claire will only have sex with characters who aren\'t feminine
If you try to have sex with her without a dick she will think you are trying to prank her and she will react violently. Unless the player has high enough fitness this will lead to the \"Lab Freak\" bad end

Surgery doctor:
She is the one who collects payment after you made some changes to yourself with the surgery option
Failing to pay her will result in a warning. Repeat offenders will get the \"Lab Freak\" bad end
You can attempt to seduce her to avoid getting on her bad side. The attempt will only succeed at a high (3+) charm level, otherwise it leads to the \"Lab Freak\" bad end
The seducton will only work once! Trying to attempt it again leads to the \"Lab Freak\" bad end

Jim:
He is the receptionist in the clinic. Currently he has no scenes available.

Derek:
He is a shady guy selling drugs in the gym. You can meet him by working out frequently (this will eventually trigger the event of meeting him)
The pills he sells will make you more muscular, less feminine and dumber
Derek currently has no sex scenes

Dave:
He is a fellow gym enthusiast you can meet if you work out long enough in the gym (this will eventually trigger the event of meeting him).
He will offer to be your workout buddy then after a while he will attempt to pick you up. if you are male.
Dave will only have sex with masculine characters who have a dick.
After starting your sexual relationship with Dave you can have sex with him at home or continue being an exhibitionist in the gym. The latter will lead to the \"Fuckmachine\" bad ending.
Dave doesn\'t go to the gym every day, if you don\'t see him, just go back the next day

Lily:
She is the stylist whose flyers are all over the city. Her saloon can be visited after the player decides to read one of the flyers.
She will offer a free treatment for the player. The player can choose the treatment or let Lily decide.
Letting her decide on the treatment will make her attempt to feminize the player, removing his beard, existing body hair and applying makeup to his face. This starts the \"sissy\" path.
Reacting angrily to this will instantly close the path. If the player meets all the requirements (see below) she will offer to date him.
To date Lily the player must be male, has to have high charm (3+), fitness(3+), at least average intelligence (not lowered) an at least average dick and a casually dominant attitude.
Trying to flirt with her can go two ways. Meeting the requirements above will let the player date her. Failing to meet them will make her start the \"sissy\" path.
The dating path currently consists of several dating activities, each with its own sex scene
Failing to pick her up for a date will make her angry and terminate the dating path.
The sissy path will have her start to sissify the player, changing his appereance, lowering his intelligence, fitness and increasing his submission. It has no actual physical changes.
The sissy path also has crossdressing, masturbation and oral sex scenes.
Lily will not attempt to sissify the player if she is already a woman or if he seems to genuinely enjoy the changes she makes.
Not paying for Lily\'s treatments will trigger the \"Sissy mannequin\" bad end

Prostitutes:
Prostitutes can be picked up in the red light district. There are male and female whores offering a wide range of services.
Prostitutes are generated randomly, their appearance and what the player wants from them both influences the price they ask for.
Not paying a prostitute will make it harder to find one the next time. Refusing to pay multiple times will lead to the \"Red Light District plaything\" bad end

Money and time

Hard Times in Hornsville is a time management game. Managing money is currently the biggest challenge in the game. (It shouldn\'t be that hard though.)
The number of days spent has no impact on the story at the moment
Certain places and activities are only available during a set timeframe each day.
Money can be spent directly, purchasing things and also at the end of each day in the form of upkeep.
Going to sleep with 0 money will trigger the \"Depraved bum\" bad end
Money can be made by working temp jobs, becoming a maid or taking part in the clinical trials.

It is a good game. Not as good as Perverted Education which has a centered theme, this one branches off and if you pick a not so interesting branch you may get bored. Now if you focus yourself in sub sissy maid path it is pretty neat. Hair stylor is something nice that can go deeper. Clinic can use some control so that people has to work for it. The maid path is nice, and the best part in this game. BDSM club is nice if you go the submissive path, I have not tried out the other paths.

What is behind the pay wall right now, is the mall, toys shop and another item or two, which is not a lot. What is already there is enough to make it interesting. The game starts to run out of content to me on the 30+ game days and I got past day 60s before I call it a quit. That says something.

I think if you like Perverted Education, you should at least give this one a chance.

hi

Majority of the content is under pay wall.

what is absolutely not false=>

A html game with a unity starter.

Basic stat and tf system that controlled by events.

the main contentis in multiple storylines that are half baked(not even 1 finished. exemp some gameover)

the game hasa modified avatar sytem (actual clothes are not suported)

this game provides many typ of fetish content but do not satisfy any of it.

 

Personal opinion:this game is like a klickbait. (hopefully prooven wrong in time)

The game already had a lot of fun encounters but the last update made it even better. Both the maid storyline and the BDSM club are really well done and extremely hot with lots of diverse scenes. I'm not interested in the gay content and thankfully it's easy to avoid but there seems to be a lot of that as well.

This one is definietly worth a try. And if you don't pledge, make sure to check out the update too, once it becomes public. I hope the author will continue on like this for a long time.

    For a game in it's early stages, theres a lot of content here, and good content too. It gets a little grindy sometimes but I think that will become less of an issue as the game fleshes out a little more. Like most sandbox type games the encounters can get a little repetitive at times but the scenes serve their purpose and do it well

   I'd like to see a way of being able to see the same prostitute again, maybe get their phone number. Reason being is its time consuming trying to sift through the randomly generated prostitutes to find one with attributes you're looking for. I'd like to see a way to save the ones you like so you could us e them again.

   Games with Patreon pages seem to be getting more and more common these days, but I can honestly say Hard Times In Hornsville is worth pledging. I'm eager to see where this game goes.

It seems pretty good so far, bit lacking content at the moment.  Really looking forward to seeing more from this game.
