comments seem to point up, looking forward to playing soon.
It's a good game and it'll just get better and better, we rewrote some of the code and changed the way you interact with some parts of the game... hope you'll like it when the new update is up and running...

Willtylor, since you said you're open to criticism, I've come across a few major annoyance after only the first 20 minutes of game play or so. First is the over sized penis sticking out of the MC's boxers at the very beginning. I don't know if that some sort of crud way of saying, "hey, look at me, I'm a big man". But personally you could accomplish the same thing MUCH more tactfully by having the character wear larger tight boxers and just having the shape of the "thing" showing under the boxers.

Second is the MC's younger sister who while giving her background in the portrait, she's described as having been extremely close, practically best friends with the MC up until recently. Yet during the conversation the MC has with her while Jacky (the mother) is talking to the Mafia. The younger sister basically tells the MC that the mother is awesome and can handle anything, then all but proceeds to tell the MC he's a worthless turd. This has become an overused and boring cliche, ESPECIALLY when their backstory doesn't align that way.

I'm not sure if you've heard of the phrase, "cookie cutter", but the first two examples in your game. Are just that, repetitive boring characteristics that far too many game dev have in their games for their characters. Dev's need to stop copying and pasting bad, terrible, crud, and disappointing features they find in other games. And instead do what developing a game, creating a story is suppose to be about, original, fresh, and creative.

Oh and one last example, this is why I put the game on hold to type this message, this is where I had enough! If you're going to make a multiple choice game, DON'T have ALERT messages of any sort suddenly appear with the intention of insulting or belitting or sneering at the player for choices the player just previously made in the game. I don't know if as a developer you thought you were being clever, or witty. But to me, if I want try a safer route versus a risky route, just to see if it gets me where I'm trying to go in the game. I don't need or want the dev throwing a game alert in my face intended as peer pressure, for "not being man enough". Then on top of that having it say, too bad game over.

EDIT: Another example after I went back to the game. Stop with damned cliche of "MC has their lust in overdrive monologue thoughts.

Are you telling the player what they can and can't do in the game or are you going to give players actual options?!

Anyway, this is far longer than I meant to type. But I figured since you said you're new at gave development, I thought I'd post my critique.

Willtylor, since you said you're open to criticism, I've come across a few major annoyance after only the first 20 minutes of game play or so. First is the over sized penis sticking out of the MC's boxers at the very beginning. I don't know if that some sort of crud way of saying, "hey, look at me, I'm a big man".

Thanks for taking the time to post a critique, I know my tastes are different from a lot of people, and I'll be the first to acknowledge my weakness as a writer. So I just thought I'd respond to a few things, and tell you why I did what I did, and the rest I'll use to try to better the story in the future.

First as far as the MC's huge Penis. I'm a big fan of porn, and I especially enjoy when a girl almost gets split in half on someones dick, and since this is a porn game that presents a fictional scenario, I chose to have the MC's penis be closer to the porn cliche than that of real life. I tried not to go too overboard though, trust me it could have been bigger. ;)

Second is the MC's younger sister who while giving her background in the portrait, she's described as having been extremely close, practically best friends with the MC up until recently. Yet during the conversation the MC has with her while Jacky (the mother) is talking to the Mafia. The younger sister basically tells the MC that the mother is awesome and can handle anything, then all but proceeds to tell the MC he's a worthless turd. This has become an overused and boring cliche, ESPECIALLY when their backstory doesn't align that way.
I know there are plenty of examples in this game of my poor writing skills, but I was a little surprised this one bugged you so bad. I don't know if you have siblings, but I do, and you can be very close to a sibling and still be condescending and derisive to each other. (maybe it's different in other families.) I personally think this is a more realistic portrayal of sibling dynamics than if she just totally doted over the MC and just went along with everything he says and does.

I'm not sure if you've heard of the phrase, "cookie cutter", but the first two examples in your game. Are just that, repetitive boring characteristics that far too many game dev have in their games for their characters. Dev's need to stop copying and pasting bad, terrible, crud, and disappointing features they find in other games. And instead do what developing a game, creating a story is suppose to be about, original, fresh, and creative.
I freely admit that this game is "cookie cutter". I decided to take the things that I really like from other developers games and make my own version of it. In no way do I claim to be an innovator in porn game development. I'm really just trying to create a game that I enjoy playing.

Oh and one last example, this is why I put the game on hold to type this message, this is where I had enough! If you're going to make a multiple choice game, DON'T have ALERT messages of any sort suddenly appear with the intention of insulting or belitting or sneering at the player for choices the player just previously made in the game. I don't know if as a developer you thought you were being clever, or witty. But to me, if I want try a safer route versus a risky route, just to see if it gets me where I'm trying to go in the game. I don't need or want the dev throwing a game alert in my face intended as peer pressure, for "not being man enough". Then on top of that having it say, too bad game over.
This part of developing a game is what I have found to be the hardest. I want to create a game where the player feels like he has some freedom to choose, but since I'm just one guy. I don't have the time or energy to develop hundreds of different story arcs. So the way I see it is there are several different types of choices in the game. There's the kind that is meant to just create an illusion of choice, but don't actually have any consequences on the story. There are the types of choices that effect the way a character reacts to the MC (changing their stats one way or the other) making them able to trigger or miss certain events, and then there's the choices that change the arc of the story. I would love to have more of the last type, and maybe will have more of them in the future, but for now as a brand new game if I created too many arcs, the updates would be very disappointing to anyone who is focusing on one arc of the game, since I would have to spread my time and attention to all of the different arcs. For this reason, for now, I'm trying to steer the player down a fairly bi-linear story line that rewards player for making certain choices, and punishes them for making others.

EDIT: Another example after I went back to the game. Stop with damned cliche of "MC has their lust in overdrive monologue thoughts.
He's a kid who wants to fuck his mom and sisters, what else would motivate him down such a devious course.

Are you telling the player what they can and can't do in the game or are you going to give players actual options?!

Anyway, this is far longer than I meant to type. But I figured since you said you're new at gave development, I thought I'd post my critique.
Anyways, thanks again for your critique, I hope I was able to answer some of your questions of why I did things the way I did. I really do appreciate constructive criticism, as it gives me things to think about and hopefully will make the story better going forward.

New update:



Week 3


There's still so much to do, but at the same time, I'm really pleased at what we've got done to this point. We may have been a little too ambitious about the goals of this update. But we're still going to try out best to get there.

Right now I'm working on the story line that introduces an alternate revenue stream for the MC, so that he can start earning respect from the girls, and use his money to influence their actions. The mechanics of this new stream of revenue is a bit complicated, and most likely will only be introduced, or hinted at in this update. When it's complete it will be a really important and cool part of the game.

My computer hasn't crashed yet! She's still humming along and popping out the image renders. She's a good, if not old and outdated little machine. I think I've alluded to the fact that rendering the images is what slows us up the most.

I'm getting excited for our first update, I think everyone is really going to like it. I'm grateful as ever for your support, and I hope I can keep doing right by all of you.

I wonder what the new revenue option will be in the future? If it means earning respect, it probably won't be from spy cams... Any thoughts guys?
Personally, I can't wait either!

The only thing that I can confirm is that you'll have another way to earn money and it'll be by tacking some pictures... Please wait for the new game update and you'll not be disappointed.
