Really loving this game and totally in suspenseful anticipation of the next update!
I've (admittedly, and probably shouldn't admit this) played this game up and over Chapter 3 at minimum a dozen times since I've found out about it.
Westane, keep up the good work, you're amazing at it. Though, I can't help but wonder what would happen if you took this from being an HTML text-based game into an Indie game of sorts, kind of like the Legend of Krystal (on Newgrounds, if I'm not mistaken.)
Nevertheless, you're good at what you do. Amazing, actually. So keep it up!
This is a wonderful little game that gets me so into it I actually really love some of the fetishes that I usually stay away from (I even double checked to make sure I hadn't started to like them outside of this game just to be sure). It's the only game I've actually liked so much that I became a patreon of the creator and I'm pretty happy with it so far. Westane is very vocal and open with his plans and keeps enough updates rolling out that, though I would always love them more frequently, I'm satisfied with how they're going as is. It's an easy recommendation with how easy it is to start up and get into and just how much content is already in the game (and on the way) as is compared to so many projects on this site.
I may, at some point, expand on this review and talk more in depth about the game, but for now I'll leave it at this.
Have played it till the end of the current content and I have to tell you:
PLEASE continue working on this awesome piece of work. Story is awesome, character interactions are decent, transformation system is good, witing is appealing - my favorite on this site so far.
We might have a piece of gold here, i am reaaaallly looking forward to updates!
When can we expect a new chapter/version?
Content is hot! Comparable to "Perverted Education" in terms of development and quality. Has good direction, a layer of intrigue, and even an option for slower/faster transformation. The ability to explore different rooms gives it that nice sandbox feel I love.
A small criticism might be that the lab work can be tedious. "Are you sure you want to make this serum?" That's why I clicked it. If the player could create a serum or materials with just one click without being taken to a description then that might be a better experience.
The Company 5.1.11. Time played; about 5~ hours.
Short review: Very good, love the (non sex) gameplay mechanics, fantastic story pacing, good writing, and consistent images. Currently lacking in some sex scenes, but there is more than enough currently to enjoy.
Story - Brilliant concept. Player character is a promising chemestry student who manages to create a powerful drug that forces a subject to follow perverse commands. After being promplty hired by a secret government organisation to synthesise more, your job is to formulate, create, and test your serums on any subject you can get away with.
Gameplay - The GUI is mostly intuitive, nicely polished, and for the most part explained well. A small but helpful tutorial shows for new players after creating their character. Game difficulty, transformation speed, and transformation in general can be tweaked after the first few nights, but after that, there is no option to change anything.
It does occasionally get a bit long in the text, but it is written in a way that is fun and immersive, using easy to read and well structured text boxes for dialog so it's not so bad.
Transformation occurs dynamically, going off what actions you have taken in the game, and the time it takes to reach a transform threshold, can be tweaked to be slower, normal, or faster. However the transformation itself, when ready, occurs instantly in the morning. Also, transformation only occurs to the player, if I'm not mistaken (which I don't mind personally). There are other fetishes in the game, such as domination, submission, shemales, bimbofication, incest, and even a small amount of beastiality, all done very well.
The Player - Character creation is fairly basic. You select your first name, last name, gender, and gender identity. Later you get to decide whether you are suseptable to transformation, and how fast it occurs, but, nothing other than that. However when the character gradually changes, their reactions to certain things also changes, making their personality believably dynamic, which is a nice touch.
NPC's - Most of the NPC's can be influenced by your drugs in someway, although in this current version, some are rather incomplete. For spoilers sake I'll leave this fairly blank but some NPC's can be altered in dramatic ways, and if not careful, lost forever. NPC's images are consistent, so it never breaks immersion.
Interaction and Sex - This is where I feel the game is let down slightly. The sex scenes are linear, and your options before engaging in an act (if you have any) are limited. Of course this largely depends on how far your relationship with certain NPC's has gotten, but even further down the line, there is not much choice. However, they are still rewarding, as simply getting to that stage requires a decent amount of work.
You can just talk to NPC's, and engage in normal conversation, but this doesnt seem to have any effect, nor any end goal. If sexual action is what you desire, you have to use your serums, which is a little sad.
Things I liked;
NPC's notice and comment on your appearence, particularly when you are transformed.
The pacing of the story and writing.
The sisters storyline, which is probably the most complete is very good indeed, though may just be a personal taste (+1 for Dakota Skye!).
All fetishes are optional.
Things I hope to see added/changed;
More options during sex. E.g, change position, change act, deciding where you want to finish (inside/outside etc [if you have a choice!]). I realise this is mostly image dependant, but still.
Have some interactions that are normally unlocked via serums, unlockable via having a good relationship with an NPC. Maybe special events for interactions encountered this way.
Self-testing with serums. Your lab parnter could "assist" you in that. Potential for a LOT of bad ends!
Weekends currently feel a little lackluster. You can go out and shop for clothes or buy adult toys, but that is really it for the outdoors. A bar or nightclub to visit would be nice.
Rent to pay at home, and more things to buy in general.
Although you do need to sleep at the end of each day, there are no primary need features (hunger, thirst etc), which I feel would be out of place and too 'micromanagey' in this game. Though when everybody else at work is having lunch, it does feel strange to continue working like a robot, so maybe a mandatory lunch or something wouldnt go amiss.
Lastly, and more personally than any other, pregnancy risk. You have a lab, where you create strange drugs, such as a pregnancy accelerator (9 months in 9 minutes?!)/pregnancy ender. As for what happens next, I'll leave that to The Company to decide.
Great game. Look forward to seeing how it develops.
