This game let's you take the role of a young guy going to visit his sister for a short weekend vacation. Obviously, things don't go exactly how he's expecting.
The theme is a single, instant MtF transformation very early in the game and the repurcussions that follow. There is very little (if any) fetish content. Sorry if that's your thing!
I usually don't like wall-of-text games, but I'm seriously reconsidering my opinion on that with "The Weekend."
I guess my like/dislike has more to do with how engaging the story and the author are than not wanting to do a lot of readiing in a game.
The story in this game is ridiculously good, and exploring the different paths is both rewarding and fascinating. I just wish there was one path in which the player could achieve everything the game offers (sleep with Francis, sleep with Hayden, sleep with Sophie ... okay, mostly the "had sex with" achievements) :D
Anyway, I love the game and can't wait to see how it turns out!
EDIT: And I LOVE the artwork. I just wish there was more of it, especially for the more ... explicit ... scenes. This IS an erotic game, isn't it? ;)
@axlevan Your criticism has been made before, so there are players out there who agree with you. Perhaps you should join the Discussion pages and voice your critique there, as well.
It's interesting, but still lacking a lot of content, the biggest problem is some "fake choices", for example:
- Casey: I don't want to do that.
- Sister: Okay, I'm not going to force you to do anything...
5 seconds later...
- Sister: Casey, let's do this.
-Casey: * blush * (and Casey does what his sister wants)
Very cute and very sweet, and the art is adorable.
Some of the best writing in any game I've played here. This one has a wonderfully slow burn. It wallows in the tiny details of exploring and experiencing a new body and a new identity. You can kinda think of it as a friendlier, warmer version of The Masculine Mystique. Still, when the sex starts, it doesn't hold anything back, and again, you get a full-sensory experience that only text can deliver.
It's very much in the vein of a CYOA. I've explored four different principle story branches and they're all worth your time. Not sure just yet what the stats affect beyond some word-choice and details in how people treat you, but I can't say I've explored every nook and crany yet. (In fact, I'm pretty sure I haven't!) Don't think the stats page reveals everything this game has to offer; there's at least one branch of story that's not teased by the stats.
If slice-of-life, intense exploration of being a recently-transformed woman is your thing, this game should be at the top of your list.
Wall of text is a NO to almost all games, CYOA or AIF. That said, when you hit a load of wall of text and you enjoy it, it got to be something really good. The Weekend is one of those seldom moments. (Type One Error is another one of those seldom moments...)
The Weekend was a light hearted CYOA that started right off with a transformation and let you ran it through having a full range of emotional branch-offs with supportive characters. It went on with plain events and plain chatters, but some how I found jewel in it.
I guess I do not need to say more with the likes it is having. Give it a go if you are looking for some non-erotic fun read.
