Story - The story of "Going for Goal" shows great promise and has the potential to grow into something truly captivating. Set in the world of football, it manages to combine elements of romance and intrigue with the sport, creating an interesting mix of themes that can appeal to a diverse audience. The inclusion of various love interests, each with their own unique qualities, adds depth to the narrative, making it engaging from the start. It's intriguing to see how the story might evolve beyond just football, leaving the possibilities wide open for the developer to explore different paths and subplots. Kudos to DarkSkello for crafting a storyline that keeps players curious and invested. - 76%
Visual - While "Going for Goal" has a decent visual presentation, there are some areas that require improvement. The lighting in scenes can be a bit inconsistent and detract from the overall atmosphere. DarkSkello should consider exploring YouTube tutorials or other resources to enhance the lighting effects for a more immersive experience. Additionally, expressions of characters tend to be overemphasized at times, which can lessen the emotional impact of certain scenes. By fine-tuning the use of pre-made expressions and exploring the parameters tab for natural-looking emotions, the visuals can be significantly improved. - 64%
Engagement - The game's engagement factor is quite noteworthy, with players expressing interest and excitement for future updates. Praise the inclusion of love interests and the absence of NTR elements, which seems to resonate well with the VN's target audience. However, there are areas that need refinement.Some players find the current version of the game to be a bit chaotic and fast-paced, with abrupt scene transitions and hard-to-read text. Addressing these issues would greatly enhance the overall engagement level, allowing players to better immerse themselves in the story and enjoy the experience. - 77%
Core Loop - "Going for Goal" establishes a core loop centered around decision-making and character interactions. The opportunity to shape the story through choices is appealing, giving players a sense of agency. However some of these choices feel hasty and poorly thought out, impacting the flow and coherence of the narrative. By refining the core loop and incorporating well-thought-out choices that align with the story's direction, DarkSkello can elevate the gameplay experience, resulting in a more satisfying journey for players. - 71%

  1. First impression: Sabine is a character that DOES NOT need to exist in a Harem Game; and my first instinct IS to tell her to go fuck herself if she’s going to be that confrontational to a person she DOES NOT know, right out of the gate. For no actual reason [Because the Dev can’t even be bothered to confirm in brackets – dumb writing]

    The only two attractive characters so far as I can tell are crossed between Luna and Bhinti or whatever the hell her name is. I would say that Chloe has potential and so does the petite Asian girl whose name you basically ripped off from Grandma’s House… and who’s Mom SHOULD NOT be a cock block if she’s going to perv on MC in the fucking shower! (At least when you did it to Shitzu it was to get points for her relationship… and he was canny enough not to jerk off about it… Her Mom should friggin’ know better if she’s otherwise going to be written the Helicopter/Tiger Mom kind of parent) Elizabeth might be hot – BUT you immediately outrank the MC by making her his manager. So it’s a business relationship that shows me you intend to blue ball with her.

    And fuck off that Kelly’s “first time” was in the car… Have you actually looked at the face you fucking rendered? Really… she looks like she’s at least 40 freaking years old. You want to make her 23, and maybe… but I do not know how you can make at least DECENTLY attractive bodies (on some of the women; because fuck me if Sabine DOES NOT get to be that bitchy in a Harem Game without looking like either Angie Everhart, or Cindy Crawford in their respective hayday to back it up. Voluptuous does not translate to pumpkin, and if she’s Cinderella reference – that was her friggin’ CARRIAGE. Not her hip to ass and waist circumference.)

    I can’t say I am impressed at all so far. You really need to come up with more attractive renders and a more believable story. If the guy pulling the deus ex machina to save the MC from the corner you wrote him into because YOU don’t understand the nuance of Tort Law (and that’s your problem) *** A contract would be signed by a legal guardian, or a TRUSTEE. If she isn’t legally one; she CAN be the other. Dipshit. This was a problem that didn’t need to exist in the first place – and if he wasn’t of legal age to sign the contract it’s not MC that would be at fault. Or held Liable. BECAUSE he was NOT of legal age to actually sign the contract to be the one that would be liable. The signee takes on the assumptive responsibility on behalf of the minor, of any debts and liability. It’s why they can’t sue child stars who quit work in Hollywood. It would be his MOM. Who is also not… which was needlessly convoluted, and I blame Paetron BS for that.

    You have a thing where a BASEBALL star is going to step in a martial arts ring… which WOULD NOT happen. Too much risk to damage the Star. They don’t do that. If you want him to be more than a baseball star = figure out what the fuck you want your Main Character to be FIRST… and then build the story off that point. Because a team owner who might be playing like the king of Germany, and pals around with tanks and mercs… is several hundred bridges too far. But at least the blue haired Bavarian is Cream Filled five seconds in ; )

    * Have to agree with Draco here Dude. It’s fine if you’re just learning, but if it’s been more than a year, I think that excuse should have run it’s course naturally by this point. Fix the characters to actually ALL of them be some level of attractive (they don’t all have to be Barbie, but no one likes the body positivity bull – and it’s actively NOT healthy. In any sense) and fix the plot to make a lick of sense and focus on the sport this MC is being paid for… and you might have something. Eventually. For now, this is the second strike. You got some balls, but I’m not sure how many are left.

  2. This game is like WVM but very poorly done, the renders are lousy and make most of the girls look ugly, the lewd scenes are bad and the story is so poorly written that it’s not entertaining at all.
    What is up with these Devs currently doing pure garbage? Do they really expect to earn money by making the minimum effort?

  3. This is a poorly made copy of grandma’s house and it doesn’t deliver in the least, unlike grandma’s house where the Mc is charming and you can identify with him, the Mc here is a little piece of shit that doesn’t deserve the attention or love he gets in the least, also the dev shied away from real incest extremely fast and pulled out the adopted fucking card, literally, take everything that is good from grandma’s house and turn it into a massive piece of shit, you can play this if you don’t believe me, you’ll see I’m not lying to you.

    1. They are both crap games , not worth the space on your disk. And if you identify yourself with that piece of shit who fucks a girl and moves to the next one , what tells us that about you.

    2. Well, after i played the first few minutes i had similar thoughts until the MC moved to Germany (Bavaria). If i read several signs the right way, there is still a possibility of actual incest already happening in this game. Although not in the usual / expected way. There might be a “plot twist” later on.

      The possible reason why the plot advanced very fast especially in the beginning, maybe has something to do with the aforemented plot twist. In my oppinion the dev could have done a different or better job though. In any form of entertainment the beginning or first part is to captivate, to bind the audience/player/participant. When it’s pulled off the wrong way it might put people off.

      The characters are somewhat written in a less interesting, bland way. i personally couldn’t get myself to care much (or sometimes at all) about any of them.
      I guess it’s because the first part of the current plot was too fast paced and there was not that much a character introduction except the short first anecdote…

      It’s somewhat same with the MC. In the beginning he really put me off with his behavior and then switched shortly after to be more “enjoyable”. But he still feels bland. While it might be debatable if that is good or bad, combine that with the “lackluster” character presentation it doesn’t look that appealing to me.
      Maybe the dev will rectify that in the future by giving especially the LIs more substance. Could be much better…

      Now the sex animations are somewhat subpar. If the dev can’t animate or won’t put in more work to have the characters not move awkward, he should stick to only renders.

      The very positive things are the inclusion (Harem, Pregnancy, possibly Incest) and exclusion (ntr/sharing/swinging/cheating, trans ) of the right fetishes.

      Hopefully the game gets much better with time.
      I’ll have another look at the game in a couple of months.

      1. The thing is this have been out for a long time now, it barely has any content and has 1.5yrs+ of development, at this point you can expect nothing really
