Will you end up as a Concubine in the Royal Harem, or will you manage to avoid your fate?
I'm happy I don't pay much attention to reviews here. This is one of my favorite games / visual novels availble on the site. Recommended. I particularly am very fond of the equestrian portion of the story. Highly recommended and I'd love to see a sequel.
Utterly boring. Watching as player character degenerates in a worthless pawn pushed around by literaly every piece of scum (which is 95% population of this story). Even good writing does not save story from this. Main character (i will refer as it afterwards - because it's not a person, but a walking piece of furniture) is despicable - utter wimp that can't resist anyone even after it's magic is unlocked. Seriously, why the hell it does this crap - falls in love with person who wants to turn it into some rich bitch's whore, stays with this character when there's good possibility to escape, even after it return it's magic it stays with them, without any attempt to escape. This furniture does the same crap even after it's friends abandon it to being a royal's whore. Sorry but Logan Scodini but you wrote a story about worthless excuse for human being that should've been put out of it's misery a long time ago.
The story was well written, but not my cup of tea and for a game that bills itself as an "RPG Gamebook", it's really close to a kinetic novel, in a sense that every choice seems to lead through the same scenarios. That being said, the presentation is good even if light on artwork and you can tell the author spent a lot of time working on the story, it's quite complex and has a lot of world building.
My main critique is just that there isn't much of a game here asides from the combat mini-game and there's no real sense of exploring the world or taking control of the situation, much like you'd expect in an RPG style game, so if you're looking for those things here you won't really find them. What it is however, is a fairly decent piece of adult fiction that would be perfectly fine if all of the "interactive" elements were removed from it and just read straight.
An excellent story but not a game. No matter what you choose you're always railroaded in the same direction.
Well this is definitely an interesting change of pace, if you were going for the RPG route that is, with its combat, however the combat itself is horribly unbalanced and boss "enrage" is just a cheap method to increase difficulty, referring to the nercomancer, if you are going to place these kinds of mechanics into the game then you should allow the player to have some kind of leveling system instead of just choosing book 1 or book 2 type loadouts, storywise the game is great however its the combat mechanics that seem to bring it down, even with lowering the difficulty they are still frustrating dragged out fights.
