  1. Well…was planning to test it…but with the planned stuff, hard pass. Sharing/swinging/prostitution…not my thing.

  2. Another MC which gets dumber as the story progresses really shitty that the player does not have ANY influence on the story!

    EP9 currently:
    MC should put phone on audio record since threats been made and be able to at least call lil’ Sis her full name, easiest argument to do so is ask for her ID and deduct that you call her whats in there and that to be called by a nickname is a thing of respect which she aint earned and even activly worked towards the opposite of it!

    Yeah devs really like to fuck up their games with stupid MC’s if not with the protagonist its with some shitty story twists or out-of-the-world events….

    Also whats up with 8 “Bonus” Episodes instead of weaving them into the game even if as flashbacks? How long are these bonus episodes???

    As for the folks here complaining ’bout the Mi LF plate on the porsche:
    Go fuck you cucks we put up with american cringe bullshit all the time and it is actually funny since it is an actually license plate code and I once saw a damn fucking MILF with that plate in Minden Germany…So buckle up and respect our culture like we do yours or be silent and if not consider yourselves cucks to your culture!

    1. Used to be in my top 10 but after episode 8 its just all been downhill . The time it takes to release another episode with very little play time is just crazy.
      getting 3k a month for doing pretty much nothing is sad i stopped my Patronidge on Patreaon.

  3. Ok that’s it. I’m done. I still can’t understand why you’d put in all this work and time into a project only to have it ruined by a protagonist you want to hate. He’s stupid, completely self centered, guilt tripper, manipulator and he sure isn’t familiar with the concept of “No means no!”. I’m in chapter four now and the only thing he’s done worth while is try to save Samantha from the rapist in the bathroom. Other than that he’s just a giant ball of narcissism.

  4. Well… the renders are pretty bad, except the Porsche. The dialog is pretty good so far and the guy isn’t a total derp. I don’t get what’s up with the frequent decision prompts with only one answer. If there is only one choice then just keep going, don’t ask me to keep going. We’ll see how it goes.

  5. These are my top 5 games
    1. Heart problems
    2 .The genesis order
    3. 4 years in Tehran
    4 .Halfway House
    5. Nursing Back To Pleasure

  6. Only recently had time to try this game, and it’s quickly moved into my top 5! Keep up the good work / recommending this game to anyone else. Just gotta get through the first scene, it picks up well from there!

      1. These are my top 5 games
        1. Heart problems
        2 .The genesis order
        3. 4 years in Tehran
        4 .Halfway House
        5. Nursing Back To Pleasure

        1. If you liked The Genesis order, trying playing Treasures of Nadia first, so that you can understand the story more, have fun.

  7. For those who can’t seem to figure it out, the update this round are the 8 BONUS EPISODES. The main story is the same.

  8. Im speechless, even though I have a full gaming rig, this game’s visuals left me shocked, it’s truly phenomenal. Not to mention the story, the characters, it’s all perfectly done. I find it one if not the best avns i have ever played. Those who say otherwise without reasonable cause are the same people who skip text throughout the game and go after the scenes, which is the only flaw in this game, that it ended quick. Patiently waiting for new releases.

  9. idk why so many people are complaining about the game this game is great and i play many renpy games this game is not your typical game where you get to automatically fuck all the main girl and where its full of sex scenes all the time ik it’s a game but it’s almost like real life you got to build up your relationship with the girls to be able to do anything with them i can understand the whole waiting too long for updates but when you play so many games like this one honestly who cares

    1. you are right i dont understand autofuck games to they so boring 10 min later you will delete shitty game

  10. If you like wholesome romance then you’ll love it. Although the updates are VERY VERY SLOW. Emily from this game and Eliza from Nephilim are the cutest female characters in all VN games.

  11. It’s a slow, long burn but it’s a great story about finding a place to belong and making new friends for life, if you’re into that sort of thing. If you’re into quick fap stuff then porn would be more to your liking. Starts to pay off in episode 10 with a couple really hot scenes, so it’s worth the wait. I’m glad I took the time to go through this and enjoy it. I can’t wait for more episodes.

  12. Great game so far. It’s nice to see a game where you have to build up the relationship over time and arent able to fuck every one within the first 15 minutes.
    What bothers me a little is that the licensplate (MI LF-78) of the yellow/golden Porsche is registert in germany and the “city abbreviation” MI with stands for the City “Minden”. Minden is part of the Federal State. “North Rhine Westphalia”. But the Federal State Logo is the one of “Baden Wuerttemberg”. Different State ^^
    I maybe the only one to notice it 😀 but I live in a Citiy next to Minden so i cant unsee it 😀
    Just an funny coincidence. Gret work, keep it up ^^

    1. i have to agree cannot understand how this has a rating of 96% i give this at best 55% decent visuals

      1. Because everyone has different tastes. Read the other comments. This ain’t for u if u r looking for a fap.

  13. I just downloaded the game on Pixeldrain and it’s still ep9, even though it’s written ep10. Something’s wrong with that file.

  14. First time seeing this game. It seemed very well written and laid out. I’d love to see more hopefully soon! I’ll be keeping an eye out for this one for sure!

  15. One year of waiting for a whopping 1 hour of content. The people paying for this are getting fleeced so hard.

  16. Bit of a joke this one. 14 month development cycle and its 30 mins of gameplay. DPC pumps out 3 hours of content every 6 months or so

  17. Everyone has their own problems. Making your problems the world problems is just fucked up. You could have been born in a warzone or live with 1$ a day…for every bad situation there is worse. You, regardless of your situation are just wrong…you want to eat a burger free just because someone has the skills to make it. Unfortunately this world does not care, so I suggest to think well and hard, because there are opportunities for everyone as long as each is honest on where they start from. If you just blurp your condition, sad or not you remain just sad and expect the world to revolve around your sadness to solve your situation.

    1. The developer publicly admitted that he was going through a period when he was not in the mood to create anything. When EP9 was released, he earned approximately €7,000/month; now he earns €3,000/month, so it is more than obvious that this is not a matter of stretching time just to make more money, because on the contrary, he has lost enough of that money and support. Even a developer is just a person who has a family, a personal life, and problems just like you. And most of all, I don’t know what you complain about when you download his game from a pirate site, and I bet you never supported him

      1. Not all of us have decent jobs Bud. Not all of us make enough money to toss $5 – 20 bucks down a well, in the hopes of a finished product just because we like, appreciate or enjoy said product. No matter how much we may want to support one or even several games on this site. Personally I’m on a VERY limited budget, and $20 can be as much as 3 days worth of food for me. Three good meals, that I won’t have, if I give the money to the dev.

        This. IS. Their. Job. In most cases, or if they had one, some of that money should be going into development to make this side endeavor to make more money to make their life easier. He gets $3 k a month. A fucking month. Dude, I make less than $10 k a year on permanent disability because of how I was born. I WISH I could work at a manual labor job. As a writer, I can’t even find a decent way to guarantee I can publish my own work. I can’t fucking afford to self-publish. In Canada the poverty line is $21 k a year. I do manage to survive, and I get basically nothing for any kind of fun. I HAVE to download free from these sites. Or stick to being bored for most of the month. If he’s got a house, a job and a family, the fucker no matter what else he’s going through with $3 k a month to boot is doing FUCK TONS better than I am currently.

        I literally cannot afford to try and date anyone. No girl these days is going to go out with someone who could MAYBE afford if pressed, $200/month. Without any ability to save for emergencies if I go that route. You want to attack someone for stating a valid opinion, that’s your choice. But you have no clue what anyone else here makes, or can afford. With the economy in both the US and Canada as fucked as it’s been the last few years, you don’t get to judge anyone for what they can and cannot bloody afford.

        * If he has the skill set to code games, he could do program maintenance. IT. He could be making a lot more – at yes, a very bog standard, boring job. He chose this path and it’s still making him $3 k a month. From what you call a loss = which tends to happen if you admit you don’t want to do the work that people have signed up to invest in. Jesus. You think what, that if it was an actual salaried job and he skips a weekend or misses a big project that loses his company money; he should get promoted? Come on.

        1. Everyone has their own problems. Making your problems the world problems is just fucked up. You could have been born in a warzone or live with 1$ a day…for every bad situation there is worse. You, regardless of your situation are just wrong…you want to eat a burger free just because someone has the skills to make it. Unfortunately this world does not care, so I suggest to think well and hard, because there are opportunities for everyone as long as each is honest on where they start from. If you just blurp your condition, sad or not you remain just sad and expect the world to revolve around your sadness to solve your situation.

          1. And you’re an opinionated asshole. Again; he makes 3 k a month, for basically FUCK ALL work to justify that. It DOES NOT MATTER what MY situation is dickhead; that was not my point. My point is that you are essentially being an ass to everyone who can’t afford in this economy to subscribe X dollars a month, just to pay this fuckwit’s way. Which is what you and every dimwit that does subscribe to him is doing. No matter how you look at it. My confession was more to explain the actual math. He is getting 3 FUCKING THOUSAND DOLLARS A MONTH, FOR ONE UPDATE A YEAR! While HE is failing to commit to the work he promised, which is ALSO the only reason he’s being fucking paid, by the skillset your dumb ass argues it’s warranted. You are entitled to whatever bloody short sighted dickheaded opinion you like. Say what you want about me, but if you ignore the logic in the math versus the actual output… all you are is a paypig apologist he’s going to keep milking, while he laughs his way to the bank. Fuck right off and don’t bother responding. This will be the last time I justify it. I hope you burn in hell, like everyone else that thinks the same bullshit way you do.

            Opportunities DO NOT just exist. There are grants but they have very specific conditions I don’t meet. They are not guaranteed, and I would be liable for the cost if the books don’t fucking sell. They’re also not the genre I write in. I happen to work in a genre that is counter to what my expected gender would write. So it WILL be harder for me to be taken well. You have no fucking clue what I have or not done to try to get anywhere. I HAVE researched the topic of writers’ publishing extensively and tried to help myself find work I can do. You know fuck all about me. I know fuck all about you, and if this is your stance… I’d rather just kill you myself. We will never meet, and you better thank your lucky stars. I’d make you feel exactly how badly it’ll suck not to be able to do what you want physically for the rest of your damned life. I’d use whatever weapon was around to make you understand what it feels like to be me, and never walk properly again. Then YOU couldn’t work, and you’d be just as fucked. Then, at that point, when you know what it feels like to be where I am on all counts, THEN you get to judge me. Fuckwit.

            You are the exact kind of asshole that is the reason people can just post shitty, half-finished/barebones and almost definitely going to be abandoned games on Kickstarter and Paetron, and sit back laughing while they collect cash. You, and people like you are exactly why there are stories of so many scam artists that just take the money and run. You want to toss your cash down a well, fair. It’s yours to burn. Have fun. I’d rather be able to eat for the entire month. But that DOES NOT mean I’m any less entitled than you are to entertainment. That I should be denied one of the basic human needs because I literally cannot physically do the work I would enjoy being able to do. You think I don’t wish I could stand like normal. That I didn’t have to worry about losing my balance and falling flat on my face, even just standing still. That I could run and walk as far as I want to? You think I haven’t wanted those things since I was born. Fuck you. Fuck you and every single horse you high minded, “pragmatic” dumbshit ignoramous’ rode in on. I know the world doesn’t god damned care. I exist in SPITE of that fact. I’ve managed to survive, on LESS than the poverty line WITHOUT BEGGING for money elsewhere. This asshole you’re defending, can’t say that.

            Again the part you are missing here; he has the skills to get a job that would pay him far better – if he chose. Your argument works BOTH ways dipshit. He could, but then he wouldn’t be able to sit on a site like Subscribestar + Kickstarter or Paetron and BEG for money to finish projects he in all actuality, barely has to work on. Instead of focusing on MY “sob story” why don’t you think “long and hard” – which is about any thought in your head, to come out coherently – about that. You stupid, blind son of a bitch. Who can’t even be bothered to think up a decent name. Do you know why I choose No. It’s to be an ultimate response to annoying curs like you.

            TL;DR because so many of you enjoy posting that to my comments:
            – He makes $3 K a month. It used to be $7. Until he literally told everyone he wasn’t in the right space to actually DELIVER on what was promised.
            – He STILL makes $3 k a month. How many playing on this site do better than $36 k a year. For maybe one actual month’s worth of work.
            – When it was $7 k; he was making $84 k a year. How many of you here on DikGames make the same amount. How much work do you do, in order to make that much? That… is my point.
            – My life, and my circumstances were not the important part.
            I never once intended to make them that. I was trying to exemplify a comparison for raw logic that you either are too dim to consider, or literally do not want to hear. So again. Fuck you, and good luck. Whatever money you tossed to him, you’re not likely to get a completed game any time soon out of. There’s NO BENEFIT to most of these paetron based devs in actually completing their work. If you can’t see that, it’s your problem.

        2. Look everybody, “No” is telling us how everything really works!

          Sometimes you date someone who doesn’t make you spend $200/mo that you don’t have.

          Scripting is not coding.

          Nobody is responsible for how a stranger spends their money. It is morally considerate to stop charging people when you do nothing but that is a different matter.

          “No” might consider themselves a writer, but they are hardly a source of wisdom or advice.

          1. Murikan, I was paid to be an article writer game reviewer/editor on for about 2.5 years. Most of my work was done “pro bono” at the time because the people running that site fucked me around about payments for 2 years until they decided to tap me to write the story for their attempt at a video game. At which point ownership changed hands… The video game attempt did not go well, because I disagreed with what they wanted the structure of the game to be, and they kept changing what they wanted from me for a script. It didn’t pan out. After trying to work with the new owner of that site, and having him plagerize my work for a week twice over (He only changed the names to the right pen name when I called him out on it) the relationship eventually dissolved. I actually currently also have 33 fully finished novel series, and am working on my 34rth. I DO NOT “consider” myself a writer. I AM a writer. I have been paid for my work, belatedly or not. I may at some point be paid for it again. Or I may at some point in the future actually manage to save enough to try and self publish at least one of my books. That is the hope.

            I was also not arguing that I have the ability to tell anyone how to spend their money. I was sharing that his argument in attacking me for sharing my current circumstances to any given point, misses the actual math that PB&J was stating plain. I do not, and never will claim to be a source of wisdom, or advice. All I do post here is semi reviews, and story ideas that devs CAN use. If they choose. Mostly for the games I do want to support, because I want them to be as good as they can become. People like you, as much as people like him, are exactly why I tend to ignore comments. Why I don’t post as often as I was, and may continue to do, far less. There are maybe five games on this site I’d actually consider donating to; but it would be an expense I can’t support Monthly. There’s not really an option for one time donations as far as I know. So thank you both, for making me feel like shit. Have a nice day. Or don’t, at this point I don’t get to tell anyone that either; because it might be telling them how to do X. : /

            This is my last say on the matter. Anyone wants to chime in, consider it a dead horse. Beat on it if you want to. I’m not going to bother checking any longer as to whether my comments even get past the moderation.

      2. Yeah, except if the rest of us didn’t show up to work for 14 months, not only would we not have a job, we damn sure wouldn’t get paid $4.7k which is ACTUALLY what he makes a month as of right now. That’s a VERY well paying job to do fuck all for over a year and then release a 30 minute update. Suck his dick harder.

    2. I need to invest in a good PC and start making shit VN games too. Little effort=high reward $$$$$$$$

  18. Jeu bien fait, mais c est trop calme, meme si on ne veut pas trop de sexe, pourquoi pas? mais trop peu de scene ou d action coquine. j ai pas voulu suivre les commentaires, c est une histoire mignonne pour ado, a la limite et oui, c est dommage plus de mise a jour

  19. earns more than 2000$+ still updates this VN once a year and that too with 700+ renders only. I see why people are idiots. Support an active developer instead of milkers like this. Surely this is good one but its milking too much.
