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!
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.
This game spends a bit longer than many handling the transformation, your feelings about that and equipping you with the tools (clothes, makeup etc) to pick your own way through the story options offered later. Once that's done, there's certainly plenty of choices available of who to spend time with and whether to explore your new sexuality or resist it. Although it's not a sandbox with complete freedom to do whatever you want, it's absolutely not a railroad once the setup is complete, it's an interactive story with branching storylines that do significantly change the experience. It's written to a much higher standard than most, which makes it more compelling to read, but it doesn't focus heavily on the sex yet, which some will find disappointing. There are storylines developing that have the potential for more, and more extreme, sexual content. Highly recommended if you're looking for more than fap material.
This is a great interactive-story, and as in all of them the available paths is limited but there are many to try.
Looking forward to more of the story as it progresses.
Note that this is an 'interactive story', not a 'game'. Don't go expecting a full sandbox life-sim here....
Anaximander64 must have missed his life's calling as a crazed train conductor, as much as he vents spleen about railroads. It's also a little silly to complain about other people responding to your review while you're responding to someone else's review.
The game itself has decent writing (significantly better than the average here) as well as cute pictures, yet I find that it's far too gentle and, in that gentleness, it lacks a serious sense of internal conflict. A minuscule part of that can be attributed to "railroading" (that is, a lack of resistant choices with real consequence), but this wouldn't be a problem if the choices supported more substantial internal conflict, even if those choices were still directed down a largely defined course.
With internal conflict minimized, however, the plot can seem too much like wish fulfillment and overly sentimental, missing the eroticism and drama proceeding from internal resistance. While this good-natured treatment of transformation is appealing to many, it isn't to my own tastes.
