Overview:
Welcome to Rieat, a fantasy world where the eternal battle between the Legendary Hero and the Demon King takes place whenever they are reborn again. Each time they clash, the world’s fate hangs in the balance… And so it should be this time… But so far, the new Hero hasn’t been found and Demon King is already making a move!

Our story begins with a girl named Rose, peasant born in Manura Kingdom, who decides to confront Demon King herself and prove that no one needs Legendary Hero. You play as Rose in a story that changes with your choices. You can be as bad as they get or as good as you can, but your actions have consequences. You can make her a shameless girl that loves sex, and exhibitionist that takes pleasure in exposing herself… or both! Her clothing can be torn in various levels of damage that will be visible both in battle and during dialogues.

Petals of Rose is story rich game that will take you on a long journey through various countries, to help Rose get stronger and face Demon King himself!​

//-------------- Petals of Rose 0.1.4c --------------//
- Info
No new content in-game, this build is like 0.1.4b, so mainly fixing issues.
NOTE: Since I am forced to move image files manually, if there is something missing, let me know as there is a huge chance I missed something.
NOTE2: Old saves do not work, in next release there will be option to move player to either end of Sedara content or when latest release ended. Questions will take care of branching and equipment. Sorry about that.

---- Message speed option
---- Khas lighting plugin.
---- Gallery unlocking NPC.
---- Probably some bugs.
- FIXED/TWEAKED

---- Missing image error no longer loops itself. Game continues normally.
---- Fixed reported bugs and ones I found.
---- Other things I forgot about.
- REMOVED

//-------------- Petals of Rose 0.1.4b --------------//
- Info
I combined 0.1.4a and 0.1.4b into one. This update deals with issues that were created due to many modifications to base game. Adds few functions. No new content added in this update.

-ADDED:

AV False-Positive
Extra note due to some antiviruses screaming false positive:
Ad-Aware
Arcabit
ALYac
BitDefender
Emsisoft
eScan
GData
MAX

Will scream false-positive because of one plugin (Galv_ImageCache.js), just so you know.

If you are using one of the mentioned software, keep that in mind as you may need to add it to exclusion.

Rest of the files don't trigger anything.

About the version: Not sure about the title, since this is a demo, in terms of a whole game it would be [0.1], wasn't sure which one to roll with so I went with demo option to not make it confusing.
Even the dev's Patreon states this is a demo version of the prologue. You might want to put "[Demo]" or "[Prologue]" in the thread title, with that small font size on this disclaimer (and version number 1.01) a lot of people are going to miss it and download thinking it's a completed game.

The developer's first post on Patreon was February 25th so that should let you all know about how far along this is.

Having said all that, I'm excited for this one and will be following its progress. I'm gonna download to try it out and see how much content we have so far. Thanks for sharing!

EDIT: Oh, the developer was the one who made the request. I missed that. x'D Thanks for sharing your game with us here!

Yep, it was me. Let me explain and probably create more confusion XD. While demo is an edit of main project, out there it's 0.1. So it's actually both, one is just edited. Due to some issues with a demo (which had it's own version before release ending up in 1.0, I had to hotfix demo to 1.0.1). So technically that part [demo] is 1.0.1, while whole project is at 0.1 atm (well, technically 0.1.5 now XD). I know, sounds confusing but I am used to having few minor elements build whole thing and each element is separate part of it so requires it's own version :p
So yeah, either Demo or 0.1, both are fine.

Well, it actually was longer than February 2018, but I wasn't working on it full time back then and had to redo/learn about tons of shit, so I kept it in shadows until that to keep my mistakes to myself XD.

As for the content in the demo, it's all in the readme:
  • Branching story. (total of 20 possible combinations, but to be fair, some are quite similar in end result)
  • 11 Hentai scenes. (7 unique CGs, 2 events + intro + default masturbation scene)
  • Complete first story event, side event and masturbation events. (Because fuck doing unfinished events - I want to see it all)
  • Recollection room / Route viewer in the same room.
  • 5 types of clothes / 4 types of underwear (also, weapon images for dialogue - those don't magically disappear unless you set them to off :p)
  • Somewhere around 2+ hours of gameplay, but it may depend on route.
  • Night/Day system. (not clock based, because fuck that, it's annoying)
  • Hand drawn images. (cringy art, woo!)
  • Prologue of the story.

No battles though, because battle images for MC and mobs require tons of draws, because clothes and cloth damage, so I left it out and finishing it all, having only mobs and rest of clothes to edit since I am done with underwear.

I haven't finished yet, but here are some thoughts:
* Hate the intro. The art is nice, but let me get to the game. And turn off the damned music as well.

* It's nice to thank people and all, but not at the expense of allowing people to actually begin playing the game.

* The slow text crawl is very, very annoying. Get on with it!

* The art is nice. So far, that's the best part of this.

* English isn't terrible, but it needs some work.

* This "game" plays very, very slowly. Actually, there's been no "play" as yet, just click and read.

* You've already told us that Rose breaking her hymen affected her reputation in the village. There's no need to show the villagers talking about it. One of the other, please.

* One more time--GET ON WITH IT!

* Once the game actually starts, it's not too bad. I'm seeing some promise. I like that I can choose to allow Rose to be indignant or to go with the flow from the beginning. I like being able to choose the female MC's corruption.

* Hotspots in the tavern could use some work.

* Please stop artificially slowing down the game. It doesn't help, and it's not fun for the player.

* A quest log would be nice.

* This game is so frustrating. it's fun when you actually get to play, but the scenes where you have no control are interminable.

I think there's some promise here, but it seems there are a ton of artificial delays that make playing it really, really frustrating. It feels a lot like the dev was worried he didn't have enough content and so decided to slow gameplay to make it seem like a longer experience. Once you get to actually playing the game, it's fun. The art is good, and I like that I have control of Rose's corruption--she's not forced into anything, which I like. Still, the game would be much more fun to play if the dev could elminate the slow play.

Soooo, is this going to be an actual RPG?
Yes, but prologue/intro is far from that, more like vn mixed with walking simulator, because I am not going to drop placeholders just to release something, either it's drawn/finished or not. That's why battle system is missing, which requires 5 poses, clothes/underwear for those, damaged version of clothes, mobs (not using default RPGM ones) and then making it work. Right now I am editing clothes to get damaged versions then I need to draw mobs, though that will go after I am done with battle system. And each mob will need at least 3 images: attack/hit/default, not even forgetting about sex attacks.

I haven't finished yet, but here are some thoughts:
Going to break it apart.
* Hate the intro. The art is nice, but let me get to the game. And turn off the damned music as well.
Skip option is there after it plays once, may need to get to first part of it so it saves properly.
* It's nice to thank people and all, but not at the expense of allowing people to actually begin playing the game.
Again, it's only during first time playing, but I get your point.
* The slow text crawl is very, very annoying. Get on with it!
Some people said it's too fast, though, maybe not a bad idea to add "skip" option.
* The art is nice. So far, that's the best part of this.
I have different opinion on this and it's not positive XD
* English isn't terrible, but it needs some work.
Yup, until I can afford someone to proofread/edit, not much I can do.
* This "game" plays very, very slowly. Actually, there's been no "play" as yet, just click and read.
* You've already told us that Rose breaking her hymen affected her reputation in the village. There's no need to show the villagers talking about it. One of the other, please.
* One more time--GET ON WITH IT!
Intro/prologue is very VN like, because... well, intro :p
* Once the game actually starts, it's not too bad. I'm seeing some promise. I like that I can choose to allow Rose to be indignant or to go with the flow from the beginning. I like being able to choose the female MC's corruption.
That's the point of heavy branching, it can go ways.
* Hotspots in the tavern could use some work.
What do you mean by hotpots?
* Please stop artificially slowing down the game. It doesn't help, and it's not fun for the player.
How exactly? The story is artificially slowing it down? Cutscenes?
* A quest log would be nice.
I was thinking about it, but it's more of a low priority thing since there technically are no quests.
* This game is so frustrating. it's fun when you actually get to play, but the scenes where you have no control are interminable.
Well, it's a prologue, so tons in terms of introduction. In that part it is very VN like, but I already said, it's going to be heavy story based. I can list tons of JRPGs I played (not especially porn ones) and it's nothing uncommon, personally like it.

I haven't finished yet, but here are some thoughts:

Not really, I just enjoy heavy story games and mixes of VN/JRPG (and I mean, really go back more than 15 years), in both you will see a lot of talking and cutscenes. I don't think I didn't had enough content, drawing stuff takes time, and scenes aren't mostly just same thing with slightly different edits. I have seen full hentai JRPs with less scenes, so there is that.
On the not forced... Depends, you probably went with good/neutral route so nothing bad happened. Doesn't mean it can't, try doing something bad - expect feedback that isn't positive.
This is a good response as it's completely opposite to ones I got so far.

I actually thought that scene added a lot to set the mood right there.

I hope this game is now full english not like your last one.
Aside some typos or grammar I missed, it's primary and only language is English. I don't plan on translating it to anything else.

Thanks. Well, that was the general idea, this and setting up another thing.

Seriously? Did I actually break something when releasing 1.0.1 for a demo? Fuck me, let me check.

after some knight arrested chief, game has a black screen and then goes nothing. it's the end of version?
I just checked, after he is taken away, black screen goes away and it plays normally. No clue why that happened.

Do someone else have problems in replay mode with scenes in taver with different slut lvl?
Would need to know which "day" of event and at what slut leveles. I had to rip apart scenes from complicated and branching event so there is a chance I missed something.

Just adding a "Hold CTRL to skip literally everything until there's a choice" like most JRPG games would be fine I'd guess.
Rolling text has a skip option, I just didn't enable it because whole intro can be skipped.
Though I completely agree on "ctrl" skip button and I tried playing with that, had issues with dialogue sprites not showing properly, but since I changed caching plugin, I should go back to it. I simply ignored all of that due to those issues and a fact that holding "enter", "z" or "LMB" (Left Mouse Button) speeds up the game and pretty much does that. While speed is not the same to what I am used to in novels, it worked. And that was mentioned in first few lines of text XD

Yo! I see you finally decided to post your game here. Nice!
Hope the gang treats you well and gives you some decent criticism.
I'm looking forward to playing more of it myself. :)
