Howdy,


I'm Az. I'm making an adult visual novel... Oh! Who am I kidding? I'm making porn. 18+, adult-only, x-rated, pretty hard-core game made in Renpy. I've been playing this kinda games for a while but this is my first time actually making one. So please give it a go and let me know what you think.  Anyways... On to the info and things:

You're a nineteen year old dude who just spent four years in juvenile detention. Today's the day of your release. But you're still under a six month probation period, so you can't do whatever the heck you want just yet. 

You get assigned to a halfway house way out in the boonies to learn a thing or two about being an adult. After all your were just fifteen years old when they put you away. And in juvie, they don't exactly teach you anything about dealing with the outside world.

So you're thinking to yourself you're shit outta luck being shoved from one crap hole to another. Outside, your friendly neighborhood probation officer is waiting to drive you to your new home. Is the new place gonna be as bad as you think?

Well, you have to play the game to find out. Or you could just read the rest of this post to get some idea of what to expect.


The following five are the main characters you'll interact with in this game. These guys have relationship stats tracking.

Samantha:



This is Samantha. She's the caretaker and owner the halfway house. She's a nice older lady and your potential mother figure. She also handles the mandatory counselling sessions to help you out with the multitude of emotional issues you're sure to have. She's the first person you meet when you get there.

Ashley:



This is Ashley or Ash to her friends. She's a fellow resident of the halfway house. I think she's a little older than you. I'm not really sure, she just tells me to shut the hell up when I ask. She's a tough, self assured lady, who won't take any shit from anyone. Thinks a little too highly of herself though. But don't worry I'm sure you'll be able to handle her just fine... Probably.

Emily:



This is Emily or Em to her friends. This girl is the most important character in the game. She's your potential love interest. You can do all kinds of shit with other girls of course, this is a porn game after all but this character is the only one you'll form a deep emotional bond with plot wise. She's the same age as you. Nice, sweet girl. Kind and loyal to her friends. But she's got a nasty temper and will kick your butt if you piss her off. So be nice. Oh, and before I forget, she hates perverts.

Officer Monroe:



This is Officer Monroe. Your Probation Officer. He's the first character you'll meet and he'll explain some basic plot points for you. He's a nice old bugger who's also not so secretly in love with Samantha. He's charge with monitoring your progress and will cart you straight back to juvie if you break the rules one too many times. So you better make friends with him.

Luis:



This is Luis or Lou to his friends. He's the only other male resident. He's been there for ages and is actually no longer under a probationary period. He's free to leave anytime but decide to pay rent and stay while he looks for a full time job. Is he a good guy? A jerk? Potential rival? Placed in the game so I can set up some NTR goodness? Who knows? Play the game to find out. Ha, ha.

How can get further episodes? I'm infatuated with Ashley. And after Cumming in her mouth, I wanna know if the Main Character can get to fuck her? And Emily is just too cute. Will there be more action with her and Samantha?

Great game and well written story and characters.  Also great character designs and models, top notch stuff! Can't wait for future updates to see how the story develops..

(+1)

I think there must be something wrong EP3.
When Hollis asks you to forgive him, I chose "no", yet Monroe talked something about letting Hollis "go of the hook" and "forgiving him". 

Samantha is gorgeous to me, something sexy about her. She's not overly attractive or bimbofied. She's kinda just.. natural. Maybe that's why she's so hot to me.

Hey, just a heads up that when playing through Ep 3, when talking with Emily in the hospital, I get this message:

Hitting ignore seems to fix it, but just wanted to make you aware for future updates/versions.

Other than that, loving the gameplay and story so far!

Download and apply hotfix 4

Oof what a game man.....I loved emily ... she is so cuteeeeeeeee.... when ep4 coming out man ?

Glad you liked it. As for ep4, Oooff. I slipped the Patreon deadline for it so it's coming out a week/week and a half into October sometime. Moving forward after that, I've extended dev time from 30 days to 45 days per episode. Can't sustain a 30 day dev cycle without major compromises.

As always, the public release will lag an episode behind the Patreon release, so ep4 will get a public release when ep5 is out for Patrons.

Looks 10/10, Story 10/10, Characters 11/10. Damn this is your first one? You got some talent, man^^ keep up the good hard work. I´ll be waiting 4 the next Ep. When will it be avaible here?

Ep3 will get a free release both here and on Patreon tomorrow. Ep4 will come out for Patrons a week or two into October. And yeah this is my first game (tho I do contract work for an outsourcing house for my regular job. So you've prolly seen my work on some  "real" games unknowingly). 

Oh okay i see ^^ Cool i´ll be waiting :P.

What 4real? sounds mysterious, i guess you can`t tell me more hm? :P i may have an idea tbh :D. See ya.

Hi!

I've just finished Episode 3 and man! It was a blast! I've enjoyed every moment of it.

As for characters in the game all my praise goes to... ASHLEY!  I was under her spell throughout the game.  I was in love with her for  not only with her beauty but also for  with her rebellious, independent and confident as hell personality.  I was so ready to do whatever she asked of me.  The was one scene that she said that if I wanted to learn where the Samantha's tattoo was, I would have to be her errand boy.  Deep down inside me I screamed like: "YES! YES! PLEASE LET ME BE ASHLEY!"  :)

Unfortunately, without hearing any request (or should I say command?) from Ashley the Magnificent, the game has finished :(
I guess, I have to be 10 dollars Patreon for  the rest of it. I will be definitely.
Anyway, thank you for this game... But... Specially thank you for Ashley!

You don't have to. I mean I would appreciate you becoming a Patron. Making this thing takes a lot of work but even without paying anything you still get each episode. Just one month later... officially. But as you no doubt know, unofficially ep3 can be found if you look. Even though I haven't released it yet for free.

Thanks for liking the game.

Just finished the game, officer monroe best character in the game

Sounds like you played ep3. Naughty boy.

Ha, ha. Just kidding. Glad you liked him.

Any full on footjobs coming up?

Sure,  that kinda thing fits with one of the ladies...

How do you get  Emily to promise.

Clarify please. Are you trying to unlock as scene replay (if so what's the name of the scene)?

The scene where you go see emily at night just before you meet Luis. The Emily night scene. 

On you first meeting where you argue with her: Do not apologize. 

This will let you go to her room to apologize later at night.

Ok thanks

I enjoyed the dialogue, creative and funny.  Can't wait for the next update.

EP3 is out for Patrons, free version should be available when I release EP4 (Probably at the end of Sept) . And then so on and so forth with a free release each month.

Great game, can't wait for updates.

How in the world did you manage a Ren'py game *without* Linux support?

By not having access to Linux to test it on. Now that I got testers it's supported in the next version

(-1)

What gave you the idea you need dedicated "testers"

Linux is well supported by Ren'py, and even if you somehow managed to screw it up, somebody would tell you. And thats a big if, you'd have to be doing something really wrong there. Like not supporting it at all. Oh wait.

Sorry, not gonna release something I haven't even run once and then claim to support it. Now  that I know it will run I will support it. 

(-2)

Thats a fancy way of saying "I don't know what i'm doing and i'm a terrible developer".

Ren'Py supports Linux. Python supports Linux. The only way Linux wouldn't run is if you were doing something seriously wrong, which apparently you are.

No other Ren'Py game has this problem except yours.

Bro he already said he's working on it, just wait for the next update

??? The game is in development. I'll add new things as I got along. Linux support being one of them. If you are interested in the game (thanks) and insist on Linux: It's coming. If you're not interested in the game.... then I don't know what all this is about?

No need really,  almost all linux distros run wine. I always just download the windows version and they always play flawlessly.  Install wine from your repository .  Download the game and click the exe and it'll start automatically. 

I loved it, as good as The Awakening, but into the story a lot, I will become a patron to get to play it early, but is there an specific tier to play it early or all of the tier get that access? Plus, do you have any social media, want to follow you closely

Thanks, glad you liked it. 

Day 0 access is the 10$ tier. You get the game straight from me at that support level. But I'll tell you straight up, you don't need to if all you want is to get the game early. There are other ways out there to get the game almost as soon as I release it. Just not straight from me.

As for social media. I got a Twitter account but don't really use it. Just gonna post release announcement there. But I'll setup a Discord server for my Patrons when ep3 is done, so I'll probably be in there everyday once setup.

I have to admit that I really enjoyed this game even that it is on Episodes. Thats actually making this game better. Although I would prefer some free choice... Something like I will choose if I want to go to kitchen or bathroom or outside but thats just what I would prefer. Can't wait for Episode 3.

Yeah, this game is more on the "kinetic" side of the visual novel spectrum. You more or less stuck with following the flow of the story. What choices are there mostly only affects how the other characters react to you.

Glad you enjoyed it anyway.

I recently started playing these kind of games and this has a better plotline than any other game I've seen. Can't wait for episode 3

Glad you enjoyed it. Ep3 coming late august for my Patrons. Will be available to everyone late september.

Hello i had some problems with your game. In the Android version whenever i try to install it it gives me an error saying app not installed i have tried reinstalling and redownloading but nothing worked any potential fixes in your mind?

Hi, sorry to hear that. The only think I can think of is that I'm only supporting  arm64 devices (newer models). My app doesn't support armeabi devices (older models).

Well, I could but that would mean supporting another distro. Maybe if I get a lot of request?

Sorry.

Az.  

Ok no problem

Started for your Howdy, Stayed for the Girls and loved it for them noice monroe Pinups, great game, cant wait for the next episodes

(1 edit)

Officer Monroe loves you too.

Thanks for trying the game.

I've been enjoying the app, and wanted to offer to proofread it for you, sort out some spelling errors and such. Free, of course, I just want to support your work, but money is tight

Sure, upload the edited script somewhere (pastebin or some such) and I'll take a look.

Thanks.

I love it, you are awesome Az :P

Glad you enjoyed it.
