Inspired by many games on this site, this offering is a first attempt to create a game. Having zero previous experience with HTML, Java, CSS, Twine and Sugarcube I'm using it as a learning experience.
It is currently very incomplete and contains known bugs but hopefully no "double-click to edit" passages. One path should be playable to beyond day 40.
Not all variables are currently in use. Lot's of balancing to be done and yes it's possible to continue to do most things with negative cash, This is really just a first release to judge whether it's worth pursuing.
V0.03 now available as either Complete download or Update from V0.02.
V0.03B HTML file contains a quick bugfix.
You have been struggling with gender issues on and off for some time. Finally you decide to seek some help.
You The main character
Amanda The therapist
Jim A good friend
A variety of other NPCs that you may encounter on your voyage of self discovery
It's pretty straightforward. If you want, look at the Hints. No penalty for doing so.
V0.03 Primarily bug fix with a small amount of new content
Known Issues: Clothing system needs overhaul (aim for V0.04) & Money system still buggy.
V0.02 Correct set $Script =+1 to +=1 in Session02
Correct set $Hair =+1 to +=1 in Dream1

Remove $Fem -=100 & $Sub -=30 from Bianca2 & Bianca3 as this was double dipping. Adjustment to $Fem & $Sub are in Bianca.
Correct path to Office_240.jpg
Add emails from Veronica
Replace @@[email protected]@ in Friends passage to hint that you need to meet Jim
Add time & energy limits to Jim, Bianca & Rebecca passages to ensure they play correctly.

V0.01 Corrected images path. All images & videos (except 1) now disply correctly.
V0.00 Initial release
whoever reported dead link , its not (pictures are missing)
also one of my fav , remember checking it out in earlier stages . have high hopes for 0.3 glad is still being worked on
Overall I think it's well written and the images fit well too, but it's taking more of perverted education approach with very generic item selections... for some rason when wearing bra-panty sets, you cannot equip the bra separately, so if you wear a "set" item, it shows both bra and panties, but if you wear another pantie that is not a "set" it shows that bra is none instead of the original bra from the previous set. I hope you understand my long-winded sentence.
I can't wait for more progression in the office, and more interaction with the females that tease MC and send him naughty emails... I naturally expect the Therapist path to further continue down the line to further extremes. I did enjoy the random encounters in the waxing station, although you can only progress a little at the moment. Then again, this is an early release so naturally there will be more content, there's enough already for a good teaser.
My suggestion would be to revamp the item section into separate item sets:
Data structure is simple, item name/picture/slot, so should be arrsize of 3, then for equip you just check the type and remove&apply the new item to the correct slot, while the "character look" simply displays item name and picture when necessary, so I'm sure apart from scouring to find images it shouldn't be hard to implement sometime down the line. Of course the creative discretion is for the author, these are merely suggestions.
Other than that, a great early release, I just hope it doesn't end here.
After installing windows on a VM I ran this game again, looks like the filesystem works fine with it. I'm not suggesting that everyone run Windows to play this game, much less set up a VM to run it lol, but until the author fixes the broken paths, it seems that at least Linux is broken. I'm not sure about Mac or how it plays on mobile, so I can't comment about that.
I've really tried to play this, but I recently switched from Windows to Linux and the filesystem can't find half the files since they're in the wrong case... Bathroom where it should be bathroom, and etc for most content. I really don't understand why this is, but it makes the game unplayable, unless you want to play it as read-only. I manually fixed about 23 images, before I gave up.
Not a review, sorry, but a bug report: when playing from a case-sensitive filesystem, many image links does not work.
I've got to say, this is really cool so far. I saw complaints about how slow the game is to start, but TBH that really made the story for me. The mundane pace at the start, as your character struggles with self image and maintaining your normal life, captured a lot of the feelings of slogging through the day as a trans person, and I really appreciated that. Once it actually gets going, though, it maybe shouldn't be so repetitive. A lot of those therapy sessions got dull after a while, but I'm sure as development continues stuff like that will get fleshed out. The important part is there though: the writing is pretty dang good. Keep it up, I'll definitely keep checking this out!
The main problem I have with this game is just how long it actually takes to see some worthwhile content. It's very mundane and follows such a basic formula that it isn't worth sticking around for to actually get anywhere.
Go get breakfast, go to work, go home, sleep. It's a cycle that seems almost endless and it doesn't help the game in anyway. Yes, I know there is progress to be made by doing it but in my opinion it takes way too long and when the actual erotic scenes do come about, as mentioned before they are all just hypno scenes and are very lackluster. It's a shame because the concept of this game has a lot of potential but right now it's seeing none of it. I think the author should really hold a thread asking the players what they'd like to see in the game.
