  1. Is it a harem or a romantic love story game with a single love interest can anyone please tell me and was it worth a try or not if anyone see’s my then please reply

    1. ITS worth your time ..but be noted at first its cringy ..and faicial expretions are retarded however it gets better

  2. It’s a nice VN, but let them act like grown ups, not like a bunch of teenagers. Even the dark path is to soft.

  3. I played 40% of the game and when the Kira scene started it felt boring so I am asking is there a single love path for Eliza is there or it is a harem game at the end
    If anyone read my message please reply to this

  4. DAMN. this game is addictive. Currently the best fantasy game. MC characteristics are perfectly balanced. All Lis are hot. I will rate this 9.5.

    1. Totally agree, it’s the best fantasy / medieval avn on the market, amazing story, lovely L.I’s and a mc who’s actually worth a damn.

  5. Nice game with nice garphics and a good story actually…the Mc is not one of those retard he is actually very powerful…the dark and light path make the choices interesting..i will give 9…


  6. Hey Buu,

    After this current update of 4.0 – I have concerns and thoughts:

    First; if you’re going to add a queen to the list and it IS a harem = Power Fantasy means MC is the one that SHOULD marry the princess. No one else. Have the queen intercede and let the princess choose her suitor. That’s the least she can do, since you wrote that she only got laid once and it resulted in a kid (NOT an attractive prospect if you ever do intend the princess to be an LI = She DOES NOT get to be boned or bred by anyone else!) * Make the relationship which you started like Pride & Prejudice end up like Lizzy choosing Darcy. The princess can find out what MC is; find out about his unintended harem and by raw pride/jealousy WANT to sign up to that life of freedom. As he grows to protect her and they gain in trust, she realizes he’s the MOST POWERFUL creature in any kingdom (you wrote the Nephilim has that potential – this is a pay off) so since he is her “royal protector,” he can marry her to continue that job because in her view the best way to “protect” her is to let him put a bun in her hot little oven ASAP. [It has the added benefit of paying off the ultimate power fantasy in that it makes MC the rightful heir as the next high king… and you can leave that to the actual end of the game – if he’s going to have a whole gaggle of women that belong to him eventually; he’s gonna need more room than just that deed. I get the symbolism and it’s romantic. It’s a good goal, but realistically if all the girls on the list will be MC’s they’re gonna need a BIG house] There’s also the fact her handmaid (on both counts) should be included as a free bonus that MC can pursue without cost, and eventually not behind either back.

    I’d also like to know why Selena is on the list? You made her betray the group – the MC. Then had MC forgive her; but say that if Eliza doesn’t, it’s fuck right off and see you never. That doesn’t track in a harem. Eliza BIT her. So if by the rules of your version of vampirism that either makes her a Thrall/Ghoul or an actual lesser blooded vampire = Fine. I assume that most bitten don’t survive and there are examples were a bite is all it takes in stories. (Though that’s generally werewolves, which I won’t be opposed if you add into the game – Alice could like it Doggie, very much for all we know. We all want to see the MC make her howl anyway ; ) ) Point being, Selena’s life literally BELONGS to MC. That should be what Eliza states, in order to make up for what she’s done. Other than that, it’s a decent update. I think you’re biting on games like To Be A King and The Sword Bearer a little bit with the protect the princess/get involved with royals crap, but at least you set up a world before hand that’s markedly different. Again, I’d like to see more from it than just getting involved with a MILF. There’s also the blind swordswoman you’re not doing anything with – and if you’re gonna introduce new regions, some of MC’s adventures should take him to at least one or two, to get new girls of course. There’s a lot of potential you’re building up. Let’s hope it pans out. You billed Onyx as pretty powerful; so if you’re gonna make MC fight creatures 5 times his size, either he needs to be powerful enough to win by the time you do, on his own… or Onyx needs to be good for more than sexy sparring with Eliza and random BJ scenes. (Final point about the princess & Queen for those that might contest she needs to politically marry: You have both Luna and Cassandra on the list at once. There’s no reason it couldn’t be the same with the queen and her own daughter. Marrying a nephilim would ALSO count as political power play, for anyone that knows the stated potential MC has)

  7. I have no freaking idea why this game is rated soo low???? only reason that comes to my mind is that the MC doesn’t bang every creature that moves and comes to his sight….there is a well driven emphasis on romance and character development…the character of eliza is sooo well written…..visuals are not as striking as summer’s gone or maybe where it all began or city of broken dreamers but it holds it place among top 10…….I love badass Mc in vns’ (dont compare with desert stalker). Summary : this game has a fully engaging story with well written characters and good visuals. This doesn’t have sex every 5 mins but u”ll stay attached to the story and the MC.

    1. how about the fact it’s a complete steaming pile of horse shit because no matter how many times you try to tell these girls to fuck off your not interested you get asked EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TIME friendship or romance path no matter how many times you choose friendship, also the fact that 2 of these choices are lies the first is do you wanna kill the wolf or distract it i chose the evil option and guess what YOU don’t kill the wolf i’m choosing all evil actions not killing the wolf is not evil next is the choice with Eliza where you can choose to go to sleep or embrace her choosing to sleep is supposed to end her romance path and does it?? fuck no it does not you get asked not 2mins later friendship path or romance not to mention every single girl in this apparently wants to fuck this guy why i can understand Alice since she has known him since they were kids but the rest fuck no this dev has created THE worst AVN i have ever had the displeasure of downloading if i could rate this myself it would 35 to 40% and that’s me being generous

      1. yesssss I agree with u in certain aspects like the dev forces u to romance every single time….every girl apparently wants u get her pussy stuffed by u…..Alice doesn’t have enough screen time…..yepp but still not a horseshit I would say….at least I like the MC who is not always acting like a child creep…..

        1. I will agree with you on the MC not acting that way which is why I’m not giving up on this one completely because the story is also pretty good, but for the rest of it I’m gonna stand by what I said If I turn down any of these girls that should be the end of It but it’s not and that is a shame. I would have put this in my top 5 AVN

          1. I disagree, I’ve played through the entire thing and there’s not a single forced L.I, the dev gives us plenty of chances to turn down a girl and occasionally allows us to jump back onto her path in case we have changed our minds, until we reach the point where we lock in friendship or romance with that L.I.

            Buuplays has added the perfect balance that very few devs manage to do, so I give him props for that.
            On top of creating an immersive world and interesting story with a MC that isn’t some spaghetti-spine dweep. It’s refreshing.

            1. no sorry I’m gonna disagree with you 100000% if I turn down the romance path with any one of these LI’s take Eliza I chose to close her path by not embracing her that should have been the end of it BUT it’s not your constantly asked, why the hell would I wanna go down the romance path with any of these girls if I chose friendship why would I change my mind. also I have played plenty of AVN that give the choice of do you wanna accept or reject this LI and that choice matters, in this it does not your forced to answer every single time, so fuck no this does not have the perfect balance

              1. no sorry I’m gonna disagree with you 100000%. I have, in real life, turned down girls then changed my mind later. But I understand how vexing it is to be nagged about it. What he should do it add something in the options to change a path if so desired. That way we all get what we want.

  8. This game was freaking amazing, at first was interesting in the sex but when playing it was more into the action and story, and discovered what abilities the characters would have and the setx scene was like an added bonus that made it awesome, it I had to rate out of 5 I would give it a ten, can’t waited for the next update an please keep up the good work, and if anyone clcoulld recommend a game who is just as good as well, I would appreciate it

    1. Bro for real this is the best fighting game I would play it even without the sex scenes just cause of the magic powers and abilities

  9. this game is freaking amazing. the characters, the plot, the mc, the renders. its just all so captivating.
    cant believe i missed out on this one for so long.
    100% recommend

  10. Men I love this game so much, the romance upto sex scene and the the magic aspect, men I love the story.

  11. Your walkthrough mod is not working, after completing nephilim v 0.3.1 the mod shut down automatically in my Android device ( MIUI VERSION 12 ) , but I was playing v 0.3.5 , please fix this mod issue 😭

  12. Your walkthrough mod is not working, after completing nephilim v 0.3.1 the mod shut down automatically, but I was playing v 0.3.5 , please fix this mod issue 😭

  13. No -Despite all the previous bitching; I do recommend this for anyone that likes a good romance story. And Harems. Because you were expecting me to say anything else, right guys? says:

    Look, I know I’ve ragged on your style a bit Buu, so I’ll just come out and say it. I would have handled the quest structure differently; but as long as you don’t make the girls insanely jealous when the “Harem” finds out about each other – I do REALLY enjoy that you found a way to make it clear to the player (and it was cheeky of you to use Eliza to do it) that there won’t be consequences for pursuing such.

    You do know how to write compelling, endearing (and in Kira’s case, sometimes frustrating…) characters. You can hook an audience’s investment. Those aren’t small compliments. I always give them when they’re do. Kira became amazing on pursuit; you didn’t force me to choose between Kira, Kelly or Pearl, and I’m hoping things will develop with this new add of Rin [Even if I see what you did by adding her, so that MC could beat Kira’s Dad realistically with training that helped him do that]

    I do think Alice should get more involvement. I also think that doing that will and or should lead MC to help Luna break her Mom free WITHOUT black magic. I think the cup being useable once before it becomes a new fetch quest is a bit dumb… and I’d like to see more of the “Aunt” (Maybe adding her to the harem – you do have a dark fairy looking girl in the intro before the game boots. I don’t think it’s the right coloring to be her, but I expect there’s going to be a twist with her to explain the Dark Path) I guess Eliza’s becoming the vampire – but if it can heal any wound: He can absorb some of the power and “cheat” to gain cure greater wounds. Maybe regeneration for himself, and a lesser ability to pass it to others. It’s your thing; so maybe you want to create other ways to make the girls just as “ageless” and powerful? To help him take out the guy he’s gonna have to take on at some point. {I now want to see Eliza rip Taron’s throat out as her new turned self and have MC have to teach her how to handle that darkness : ) }

    You can definitely do romance. Credit where it’s due. We have different styles, and that’s okay. But like recognizes like. Even if my works are novels I can’t share online, and you design games. So thank you, for being one of the skilled writers for this genre of gaming. There’s a lot of them I’ve tried, and not many will make my “For Fun” list. You have. Keep going, because I think this story and what you’re building will be awesome by the time it’s finished. I’d always hoped it would be, saw what it could be, and wanted you to get there.

    1. and guess what this is NOT a harem there is no harem tag holy shit dude, why do you keep assuming it is
      one or should be one FOR EVERY AVN you play it’s pretty sad and pathetic tbh

      1. Dickhead – there’s at least ONE actual choice in game that literally reads “Harem Route.”

        There’s also the fact that the dev inserted a note recently in the last two or so updates that said you CAN romance all of the girls if you want, without consequence. There’s a LIST of women if you download the mod; and it shows you what their score is. Just because Harem isn’t officially “Tagged” doesn’t mean it’s not designed (or shaping up to be) a harem game. I would also have been decently fine if there was proper deliniation in choosing a set female’s path and it was a Dating Sim. The problem with those for me is that too many Devs decide to introduce ALL of the girls and let the player pursue them the WHOLE DAMNED GAME; and then at the end force you to pick just ONE. That’s not a dating sim. That’s just being assholish. A dating sim is you pick the girl you want to pursue from a shown list, once each has been introduced. Then proceed with the path for each girl individually, from there. Plenty more replayability that way. But that’s not how most Devs bother to code the games.

        I don’t assume it should be for EVERY game I’ve played. Most of the ones I gravitate toward CAN be, and perhaps would be better served in that they could be harems. I happen to like the genre for what it is, and have been more than open about that point. If they’re not designed that way, and they can be, it irks me. Because the path is open, and I can see where it COULD be. Frankly, if they’re not originally designed that way, but a path is left open in general to make it that way (and it doesn’t actually HAVE to be a harem if you choose not to play that way) then that’s fine. Absolutely. But if I choose to play as a harem – which is what you’re doing when you waste effort chasing EVERY female because the recommended path TELLS YOU TO – then I should be able to NOT be penalized at the end of the game because I actually found each girl endearing in their own right. I do want all of them; it IS a power fantasy, and I’m really bloody okay with that. Consider it like Pokemon, and they’re all Ditto: I want to BREED them all! I don’t give a flying pixie’s arse what you think is sad, or pathetic. The fact you took the time to comment that there is no harem in the tags – but missed that it’s literally written in at least one choice in the game, and the Dev themselves wrote in there would be NO CONSEQUENCES for multiple pursuits of a Love Interest, is pretty fucking sad to me. Tells me you either didn’t actually bother to play what’s shaping up to be an awesome game; or you just don’t bother to actually READ.

        1. listen jackass unlike you’re lazy ass I actually have a life and a job so I don’t have the luxury of playing these for hours on end like YOU apparently so I had not actually gotten to the choice of harem WHICH IT SHOULD BE FUCKING TAGGED so don’t try and talk down to me fuck tard and yes it is still sad of you to assume anything of what it should or should not be YOU should be happy you’re getting any of these for FREE and just enjoy them for what they are rather than complaining

          1. Disabled; not lazy – jerk off. There’s a difference. I literally cannot STAND long enough to work a blue collar job. So fuck you for any opinion you have.

            I write NOVELS. I just don’t have the cash to publish them = so most people think I don’t have a job. Do you have any idea what it takes to write thirty pages DAILY? I CAN finish a novel in a week; and that means fuck all to any of you. Especially the assholes that type TL;DR in any of my comments that don’t even count as a full fucking page! To have gotten to 237 books fully finished. 34 FULL series… Knowing DAMNED well I can’t afford to publish them? No. Then take your own advice and GO FUCK YOURSELF. I DO work. I just don’t bloody get PAID for it.

            I don’t “assume” what the story should be. It is what it is. Again; I DID get to the part where there was one labeled choice that says Harem. If you didn’t that’s not on me.

            1. LOL who the fuck is gonna know you’re disabled dumb ass, well then it’s not really a job is it then numb nuts if you’re not getting paid and tbh it’s no wonder you don’t get paid with the garbage you write, also I did notice however you never mentioned you had a life sounds about right to me

              1. No - I'm not going to dignify your childish name with a retort. I'm comfortable in my own sexuality and if you all can't guess what I like by now... says:

                It IS a job. I treat it like one; I structure my day like it’s work. It’s just work I don’t get paid for – because I can’t access grants in the genre I do write as it’s atypical to my gender. I actually DID mention I have a life; in my last comment to PenisMike. (Who can absolutely go fuck himself – and so can you and anyone like you with a name like you’ve stated) People like you are exactly why I’m taking an extended break from bothering to try and critique/review any of these damned games. At all. Like you all say; no one wants my help. No one listens to my help and apparently to everyone and their dog on this site I don’t matter. So once again, for the last time. Every. Single. Troll. Commenter. Can. Piss. Right. Off. I almost DIED in real life this year – I have NO more time, and will give no more energy to you assholes. You want to insult each other or each other’s politics all day because you’re bored rather than actually discuss anything about the fucking games we ALL play on this site: Have at it. Just leave me the fuck out of it.

  14. So, I made it out of the cave without being raped by Kira…amazing. I had to press (FRIENDLY) at least 20 times before she got the hint. Afterwards they got to a scene with Alice who is studying hard and keeps thinking about the MC. At this point, you may as well completely delete Alice because other than at the very start of the game and a short encounter in town, the developer has given her NO opportunity to spend even a minute with her childhood friend, with whom she is in love with. Who in there right mind would chose her as a love interest? She’s non-existent throughout the whole game. But hey, we get PLENTY of Kira who neither looks good nor has any redeeming qualities as far as her personality goes. She does a complete 180 in the cave though to try to get you to screw her. After you tell her for the 20th time I WANT TO BE FUCKING FRIENDS YOU STUPID BITCH, she still tells you “this wont be my only moment of weakness” lmao. Yeah, I have no doubt about that. I went from loving this game to wanting to delete it from my computer thanks to the last two updates. Unreal..end rant.

    1. Hahahaha, so much for “end rant”. So I get back on the ship, Kira continues to try and rape me by shoving her tits in my face along with Kelly. The MC is just loving it, even after I’ve turned Kira down literally 20 time, I shit you not. Then shortly afterwards I get the option for my first relationship lock in! Yay!! Gues what the options are?
      Visit both (romance)
      Visit only Kira (romance) <———-LMFAO!!! Are you kidding me???
      Visit only Kelly (romance)
      Visit neither (friendship)

      I bet you any amount of money that if I hit visit neither (FRIENDSHIP) for the 21st time….this dumb motherfucking dev will STILL continue to shove her down my throat, you can't make this shit up lol. Honestly, at this point I can't help but just laugh. The developer just needs to hang it up and find a new hobby, I don't see a future here for him. Why give the player choices if you aren't going to make the choices matter even in the slightest? I chose Eliza as my main love interest long ago, since she got injured they have just been throwing pussy at me NON STOP, and I can't keep them off me with a fucking stick. I'm pretty sure that's going to have consequences as well later down the line with Eliza lol. Because no matter how much you say NO, they keep kissing and doing shit anyways. It's hilarious. This game is now utter garbage and it's a shame because up until Eliza got injured, this game actually had a lot going for itself. The MC totally changed as well, he's no longer the serious type like in the first half of the game, now he's the pussy that's just drooling over these ugly sluts that treated him like crap the whole time. I'm going to skip through all the dialog and see what happens, then I'm deleting this trash from my computer and forgetting that it exists.

  15. My god what happened to this game? I was loving it up until Eliza got hurt, Now it’s all Kira, Kira, Kira. I keep turning her down as I have ZERO interest in her, now the stage is all set on the island with a campsite ready to go and she’s just like a cancer I can’t get rid of. It’s really starting to piss me off. She’s exactly the type of woman that instantly turns me off, gtfo! How many more times do I have to turn her down? I’ve done it like 5 times already…

  16. this “No” guy is so awesome.
    he caring about what he does and sharing his thoughts, is a incredible trait.
    I’d definitely be very interested in you if you were real, in real life.
    love you <3

    1. Thank you. I am real, in real life. I promise. But I might also be Pinnochio. Who No’s.
      Comments like yours are much preferred. Sometimes sorely needed. I appreciate it.
      Have a good day, Ray. The site needs more like you.

  17. A wholesome VN. I almost dont wanna play it. But I like the story too much to not to. This isnt your typical adult vn. Its a more of Romance, story-rich, adult vn. Its great.

  18. That such a wonderful and best VN I ever play you have a different concept that differe you other the unique one I love that and you do amazing character development for ELIZA but come to ALICE she is only appear in short time in next update try to develop story for ALICE .and each update are every small it’s like short story we didn’t able to reconnect with the story so please take your time and give us a long time play coming to the story you nailed it definitely amazing. I’m daily checking for update what going to come next just awesome . please considering to giving us the long updates

  19. Jesus… People and their obsession with harems. There are tons of Pokémon-like ‘gotta catch ’em all’ harem games, go play them. No need to ruin every game with this ridiculousness, especially if it doesn’t fit the game’s world. It could work in this game, but it is up to the dev to decide.

    1. In one of the tavern scenes so far, there is literally a choice that reads (Harem Path) so dude, while you might be right, you’re also wrong. People can suggest what they want for the game; and the dev CAN listen. Or not. More people have probably pointed out that as a dating sim, he’s focused on exactly one girl over hard. The MC’s character is BUILT in story and in the lore so far to be a Harem Lead. That’s not on us. Whether it pans out it a different story in the longrun but this is for all intents likely to be able to be a harem path end. If we so choose to follow that. Many of us will, some of us won’t. Don’t tell me you’re one of those “pure adventure” hearts that wants the RPG for the RPG and would play through without romancing anyone. I know they exist but you have to figure they’re the unicorn here.

      The game is a power based game. The MC is going to end up over-powered (and possibly the tool of an evil overlord if we’re not careful about choices – or an edgelord himself…) either way. Harem is a power fantasy genre. They fit together quite well. If you don’t like it, you won’t have to play. Frankly for some of the devs choices I’ve gotten close to that point myself, and I’ve been fairly clear about it.

  20. Months? Months… really?

    The second major quest that MC literally CAN NOT afford to fail (because you’ve never heard of the concept of pacing or escalation I’d wager – and injured one of the Main Girls *** It SHOULD. JUST. BE. A. HAREM! *** too early; you can do that as a lesson in over confidence about the MID point of any story, that tests the Protagonist’s resolve, or shows his commitment to a particular female) Which on I’d also say since Eliza has been focused on too much so far and the other girls haven’t actually had the ability to be built up at all, is the only girl MC has shown consistently he does care for to that level. But MONTHS?!?

    Dude, I get that you’re talking medieval times, but you introduced the fucking concept of MAGIC. If it’s all that important, make it max a fortnight. 2 WEEKS. Tops. Yes, she’s not dying [Yet…] but what the fuck do you think Taron is just going to sit on his arse and let MC get the thing he needs? They’re all likely dead or captured by the time MC returns. Jesus Christ, was this idea dense from a story-based perspective. Are you planning to pull this edgelord bullshit with ALL of the women? {Fuck you by the way, for the dark path option to kill Selena’s sister – who should ALSO be in the Harem since you went out of the way to render her attractively, and NOW she owes a Light Path MC her LIFE!} Alice did at least show her tits, and did get a bit of time with MC, but why the fuck did you not make her insist to go with him??? (Also, also – don’t just label it “Lewd Scene” ; make sure the Player Knows there is NO Consequence in Points to that choice. I had to decide against seeing it, because I figured I’d lose points with Eliza for literally dicking around when MC was supposedly so fired up about making her walk again – which fucks everybody with a lick of sense narratively out of potential sex content – and was not clear about whether it would impact points with the potion maker) Sylph can watch Eliza so she’s got some level of gopher with healing potential. If MC needs a potion I guess he’s screwed now. It’s called foresight. You made the girl chase him this far, just to clam up in telling him what she really feels… AND you make Eliza be the bitch that says she doesn’t want to share him? NO! Just no. That’s Player Fucking Choice. If I choose Harem path – which should be clearly marked without a god damned walkthrough (which is also not up to date thanks so much) then she DOES NOT get to be possessive or jealous to the point it will ruin that. She WILL learn to share. She will see that she has to, or it will hurt him. And she SHOULD care more about that, since he is willing to keep ALL of “his women.” That’s how you handle it properly.

    I will give you points for at least not making MC’s Angelic powers some sort of defibrolator… but I take as many away for some of the backwards logic in this arc going forward {And if you want me attracted at all to a certain Red Headed Pirate; give me the option to take the fucking blade away from her. Turn the tables and threaten her with it. See how she bloody likes it. Nice, Kind and/or Merciful does not mean Submissive. Light Path, does NOT mean doormat. Fuck me I wish some of you devs would learn that}

    1. Since many will probably call me unfair, let me give you a proper example to show what I mean:

      The quest was to reach the city. We did. The first Guild Quest was to fight the goblins – you pull a berserker as a challenge. Fair enough. You pulled an assassin before even that if I recall, or directly after I forget which exactly. Little bit too far either way. I would have saved the assassin as a proper testing challenge until after the 3rd to 5th official guild quest. That way the player gets to see character growth, even individually, and proper reward to challenge scaling. The way you’ve set things up, MC cannot afford to fail or Eliza won’t walk again. He also really can’t win, except for Slyph’s given word that somehow, he can’t lose. So he should be walking to certain death, and you’re making most of the characters act like he is… but he isn’t. Because ‘Word of God’ Says So.

      You created a rag-tag group that REALLY should just be teamed up. Alice can still belong to a different guild and use adventuring with MC’s team as extra credit therein. She is the type to be over-achieving. That way you won’t sideline a potentially necessary healer. You have Eliza as the Glasscannon DPS, Borri as the beef Tank/distraction and MC is the Heavy. You can include Flynn, and even Sabrina or Selena (interchangeably really) as some level of comic relief/debuff or merchantile connectivity. That’s your team. Whatever else you add on role wise later is just gravy.

      Send them on a few easy missions. Perhaps like I say, four to five maybe six if you really want to stretch. Show them using it to train up; the nephylim can absorb powers (and one thing you missed that negates the need to travel in the first place to the relic, is either a high elf – who might be more magically powerful than whatever Slyph is and should be able to cure paralysis – or a lizardman. Have him absorb some sort of regeneration effect, and make Alice look up a way to cast transference. It wouldn’t have to be permanent. Just enough to get the job done temporarily) There’s also the automatic Angels are supposed to be good at healing. Regeneration SHOULD just be a spell he knows already, innately. Beyond that, again: use. His. Powers. It does show growth. I just don’t like when it’s a deus ex machina against death. Because that means you wrote your characters into a corner you haven’t figured out how to get out of.

      Once you send them on some easy to mid missions, Taron will TEST them; with a dupe harder challenge. This can be the point you really should introduce him. Rather than right off the bat. If they succeed (which should be a mark of both player choices and your work so far to create proper power scaling) then Taron will decide more direct intervention would be necessary. Even thrilling. His goal would not be to take down easy prey. He’d be the type to get bored that way, or he wants to face a true warrior type, one who can match him. If he can’t be used to help him achieve ultimate power, as a pawn. It should however be just a tease. Another test, or one to see if it will “break” the MC. Either to mold him to what Taron wants in the dark path, OR to see about his actual resolve as stated above. Doing it this way also creates options to a) build up the harem if so chosen with ALL of the girls, and b) do the same with the potions maker so she doesn’t come off as the town slut/man eater who only wants to bone MC and be done.

      The quest to get strong enough, while finding clues as to where his nemesis could be from the Guild for each quest completed as a partial reward, should have been the way this went forward. You’ve set it up like a JRPG for no reason. With all the assholish troupes that entails. It’s not an anime. He doesn’t need more than his parents’ deaths for his “berserk” button. You could have structured this out for at least 20 good and intriguing chapters, to work toward an actually shown to be achieveable goal of vengeance well earned. Instead you’re leaping through 4 to what seems like it should be the MIDDLE of the story. I think that’s what galls me so fiercely. Because there IS potential here. I still believe that. You just have to work on the pacing, and the scaling of both your quests, and character powers.

      1. Good to see you again Murikan… how are you liking the name changes?

        Also, at least it isn’t TL;DR… even if it is.

    2. “I wish some of you devs would learn that”
      Then do it yourself, instead of trying to teach other people how to do their jobs

      1. I wouldn’t have to teach them to do their jobs if they knew what they were doing in the first place smart ass. But insofar as whether I want to program anything; I’m a novelist by trade. I know story craft. I’ve tried RPGMaker before and it’s a pain in the ass to get it to do anything. If I wanted to be a game dev, I would have to rewire my brain to be even more anal retentive…

        all I can do is try to help people who are good at coding, be better at writing coherent, cohesive, compelling stories. I do not expect any of them to actually listen to me. Like most of you, I am more venting my issues with the games, and trying to provide some instances of how it could be fixed. Which frankly is more than 99% of you bother with. So maybe next time keep your damned opinions to yourself; or come up with your own review and suggestions to help. The devs do want feedback, some of them do check sites like this for it, and they need all the help they can get to know what does, and more specifically DOESN’T work. Other than that, have a nice day.

        And yes, I can do, and I can teach. If you’re still going to try to be a bright bulb about it. Choosing not to, is a different thing entirely.

        1. After the current version 3.4 three points Buu.

          – First, thank you for listening to my power suggestion if that’s where you got it.
          – Second, please make MC smart enough at some point soon to realize with the wording of your own explanation he ALREADY has the thing he needs with the absorption, to mend Eliza (I like the idea of extra treasure to make it worthwhile too, but that dovetails into…)
          – Third: You marked at least one point in the game with a “harem path” so please don’t make any of the girls salty to the point of denying MC just because you finally decided to stop fucking around with foreplay and actually rendered a very hot sex scene. Which again: Thank you. I’ve never said you don’t do good work, my critiques and or reviews whatever you want to call them have been trying to help you create the best game you can. Because I want your game to succeed, but not everyone knows D&D based rules for monsters, and not everyone is a good DM. Trying to program things is again an entirely different skill set from story craft. So it speaks well you’re willing to take ideas that work for your story. Hope you continue to put out this game until the story you want to tell is fully done. I do want to see where you go with it.

        2. YOU don’t teach these Devs fuck all they don’t listen to you why would they or should they, all you do is shit on there work and complain about how it’s not to you’re exacting standards, also nobody WANTS to listen because all you do is moan for someone who’s supposedly smart or say’s they are you’re pretty dumb because you still have not figured out nobody gives a crap about you’re moaning

          1. You cared enough to reply. Just thought I’d point that out, bright bulb. I’m not moaning. I tend to save that for my woman (if and when I choose to actually have one) I am pointing out things that don’t work, in general; because that’s the feedback that Devs don’t always get. They do need to know what doesn’t work, in order to fix it. I also tend to laud games when I think they’ve done a good job. Though I’ll grant I do that far less often. I’ve never been the type to shove smoke or rainbows up anyone’s ass. (I’m not even sure he’s into that sort of thing…) I don’t sugar coat, but I try not to be entirely assholish. Unless I’m being trolled. Then the gloves come up. Kinda wondering why you’d care if RanCor does blow Trannies? Why bother with a name like that; have you seen like a quarter of the games on this site. Or any other like it… it’s not exactly an insult mate.

            * Also: You don’t teach these Devs Fuck All. There’s a period you missed. I could insert dark humor for obvious snark here, but I’m not gonna be that crass. If you’re going to bitch about my reviews/criticisms, you could at least learn to use proper punctuation if you’re going to call ME dumb.

  21. Well, this “whiny kid” is 40 years old; an actual professionally paid writer at one point, and knows a thing or two about proper story structure, power scaling, world building and frankly balancing Harems. So while I appreciate you enjoy his work, maybe compliment him without insulting the hell out of people you don’t know, on a free to post site. Where literally all of us can take shots at you for being a cringey simp.

    I took the time to list what I hope – this last update was very much not pleasant. I was vocal about the points that DO need fixing. If he wants to sustain an audience. He can like that or not, since I download for free anyway as I am on a limited budget. The comments I do make are intended to be both venting AND helpful. Whining, is not what they are. Like you, evilbean; I’d like to see the story take actual root and sprout into a great tree. Your luck, you’ll come out gnarled. Withered and bitter. Like this dev will, if he continues to play up the edgelord because he wants to have a Sith option. He’s paid, to deliver entertainment, and begging the funds to do it. Guess what’s going to happen if most of the audience that paid him, doesn’t find the work as promised, or entertaining. That’s not on us, and it’s not whining to point out. That’s just cold, logical business.
