Love how NaughtyRoad is just rolling with the orc/goblina puns and going full on troll mode and feeding the nay-sayers with actual content as a "Fuck you, this is MY game. Have some high fantasy goblin girl" :cool:

I went back and played this game again . I got a totally different meaning from the opening walk than I did this fist time. I clicked on( don't) and avoided contact with the woman walking in front of me.
The first time I thought the daughter got mad at him for kissing her by mistake thinking she was his wife. This time when we got home I didn't try anything we we still end up holding one another and kissing. I try to pull back and she presses forward and is holding the back of my head . She doesn't get pissed off until you tell her you thought she was her mother.
So i'm thinking the daughter is really into him and that is why her attitude is the way it is with him now.

You can tell the eldest daughter deep down really loves her father despite her acting a real bitch to him all the time. My impression from that opening 'drunk' sequence was she wants to be the one to replace her dead mother in her father's life, and she doesn't handle the initial rejection very well. Not unheard of when trauma affects a family like this. This story so far is so very well put together.

hope y'all noticed..after the opening sequence..you get "two weeks earlier" so..this is foreshadowing a potential future incident..so how we play our game to that point i think will determine whether this comes to pass..and concerning how many times he goes to the office and such since the opening flashfoward..methinks we are on "day 3-4" tops so far by the end..so maybe 4-5 updates to that potential scene..plenty of time to boink office lady..get Denise comfier with MC rubbin' ointment on her nude body and time to get Macy back into his happy space maybe cuddling on the couch watching tv with occasional slips that would lead to the sexual tension shown in the flashfoward....i'm just tossing shit into the wind here ..so no idea..but i think too much about the games i really like alot..lol

@ThunderRob
Now you know after the rat killing Denise put on him with the broom that in 2 weeks he's not gonna be interested in intimate relations or kissing someone. He still might not even be able to walk by then. lol

It seems really heartfelt and thoughtful, especially for an adult game. I think only a few adult games are close to being well written and this is already one of them. I'm keen to see where it goes.

I just checked. After the incident at the start it says "several weeks earlier", so it was foreshadowing.

The realtionships seem very real, I really, really appreciate a good slice of life story with believable characters.
The "Bad emotion" system or whatever it is called is a really good idea too.

I personnally like when there is a little bit of natural ugliness to the models, but it is true that they are bordeline unrealistic with their deformation there. I'd say it's at the limit.
I don't mind but I do understand where people are coming from.

This game manages to create a surprisingly heavy atmosphere for an adult game. It makes the player get the feeling of loss that the MC and his family are facing. These words, for example, made me feel really sad...

301733

(But, following up, when she offered to give a handjob instead of some moody conversation, I was reminded that it is porn game... :p )

Okay, about the looks of the girls, I see some of you guys are trying to justify them as "regular"/"relatable". Well, in some senses, yes, but generally speaking - NO. You want to compare them to your everyday regular looking girls, look at their mother or the co-worker (or go outside and look at the girls on the street).

The dev certainly took things to the extreme here, but guess what, almost all games do that. While other games tend to show the girls as too much sexy/curvy/cute, this game seems to make the girls too much "ordinary" - almost to the point of being ugly. This is obviously a deliberate/intentional artistic choice on the dev's part - a brave one at that. And I respect it, no matter how I personally feel about it at this point.

So, why would the dev do that? Well, I'm no artist/critic - I can only guess. My best guess is that the dev wants you to look at them simply as your daughters rather than some young and fuckable chicks. If they were even slightly good-looking, the first thought in your heads would be, "oh, yes I wanna tap that ass" or something (men will be men). So, in order to counteract that emotion/train of thoughts - they need to be uglier than they should otherwise be. The dev wants you to love them first as your little girls, and then something else. The focus, then, can easily shift to interactions, rather than looks.

(Another such example of this tendency could be Haley's Story, where the main girl Haley has the least amount of curves of all the female characters of the game. I guess, the same thing applies there, the game wants you to love her as your sister and because of her personality, not just for her ass.)

Apparently, there seems to be only one problem. At first look, the younger daughter seems to give you a vibe of the D from DMD - a little too naive and immature for her age. Also, the interactions also seem to make less sense for an adult girl, this scene for example...

301752

I really liked this scene, but it certainly is weird for a dad to tickle her 18-year-old girl don't you think? Also, the older girl behaves more like an angry teenager. So, again, my guesswork, the game is indirectly trying to portray them quite a few years younger than what it says out loud. While many would wince at what I'm suggesting, I myself have no problem imagining that. It is required by the law that the characters be at least 18, but I never thought that was a magical number.

Overall, the game shows promise. I'll wait for a few more updates before making a judgment (i.e. review) though.

It's the same reason so many of those games have their 18 y.o. male MC's be a whole head shorter than their "landlords".

this is it, thats why some of the characters act like 13 y.o. kids, because they are
Well, 13 is a little too young, but yeah, that's basically the problem with underage characters.

It' not uncommon for underage characters to get involved in sexual activities in mainstream literature though. For example, in Vladimir Nabokov's novel Lolita, the titular character is only 12 (!) years old.

But I guess those restrictions are there for a reason. I totally despise pedophilia. But at the same time, I don't believe that the 18 y.o. is some sort of hard threshold.
