Warning: This game has adult content and is meant for 18+. Follow the story of Catherine Belrose, a commoner that has just graduated from the Academy of Magic in the capital of the Empire. While her training has made her into an elite in the Empire, studying in a school meant for nobles has left her with a soul-crushing debt to repay.
Knowing that the only way she can get as much cash as she needs is by joining the Adventurers Guild, an organization that employs mercenaries to deal with the ever-present threat of monsters, she does just that. But, there are those that do not want to see her succeed, and she is going to have to work hard for everything she aims to achieve.
Guide Catherine in this epic quest, join forces with dozens of like-minded adventurers and embark on many adventures in a world filled with magic. And while you are at it, discover how deeply the corruption runs in the heart of the empire, discover the secrets of the world of Valarien and it's rich history, uncover dark secrets better left buried in the sands of time, and pursue romance, or just casual sex, with the many companions that will join Catherine on her journey.
Will Catherine be able to pay off her student loan? Or will she fail and become a slave? It is up to you!
The game is still in development and you can support us on Patreon to get access to new builds earlier and actively participate on some of the development choices. Your support is also going to help us to keep improving and expanding the game!
Had a weird error come up after I un-zipped the folder for v0.9.2 (before c or d versions came out) where the folder seemingly duplicated itself so I had two of them. Strangely deleting one left the other but it was completely empty. So I just had an empty folder on my computer say it cannot delete itself as it "Could not find the file".
The newer versions haven't had this issue but still want to let ya know about it. I fixed it by using CMD to remove it, so at least its gone now :D
You can try using the app called Parallel Space. It allows you to clone apps, to run separate accounts on Twitter, and stuff like that. But if you clone Rise using that app and run it through there it works! Or at least it worked for me and some other people that tested it.
The problem is that we don't have permission to save the game anymore because android is cracking down on third-party apps like ours, we don't have permission to write on the device anymore, which means we can't save the game. This app works around that limitation and gives the game the proper permissions
No, she joins her legion in their camp and the last option I got was "Now to make this place feel more like home". Then when I press go out it shows this, and the only option is "I better tell Yda the news". And after that there's no more options, it just shows the option to go back to my house (in the city, not the tower) and the gym.
Art's great, SPAG is excellent which is incredible for a work this long with so many branching paths, and the descriptions do their jobs wonderfully.
But, and this probably sounds like a weird complaint, it's VERY hard to fail. Like, I decided to start a new playthrough and intentionally go for all the worst dialogue choices and while I missed a few sex scenes, it doesn't seem like much else is changing. I really wish that poor choices, ESPECIALLY during fights, had clear costs (immediate and/or long-term).
I know sometimes that isn't going to be possible (I might have little interest in Eleanor but you justified her staying interested with some masochism even when we specifically choose just unpleasant options and having her and her relationship be optional would change far too much to be viable to write, as an example), but unless the player goes out of their way to burn a bunch of days even the bad ending (I was hoping it'd be a route unto itself but I totally understand not doing that) is pretty hard to get by accident.
Have I just not played for long enough? I stopped after the orc fight, so it's definitely possible I'm missing later choices which have a more radical effect.
This is by design. I hate arbitrary bad ends in VN's as it's often hard to figure out ahead of time which options lead to them, long routes that eventually end in a game over because of a decision you took way back are especially a no go for me. The game is not supposed to be challenging, it's supposed to be a story you can enjoy free of stress.
That said, there are some new mechanics that are coming out on the latest build that involves the management of an army. I still will not add arbitrary bad ends, and it won't be too hard to manage the army, but perhaps you would enjoy the extra weight of each decision? There is a lot at stake after all.
Mate I really love this game but i recently got a new Android phone and the games not working on it my eyes literally started tearing up is ther any way u can make this game compatable with Android12 and maybe even on other upcoming Android versions pleassss!!
PS - I can't play the game in my pc cuz it's in the living room.
I can't do much at the moment unfortunately. Android made changes that make it harder for us to develop for android without going native. And mobile is not our focus, or my competence for that matter, so we won't be making another whole version of the game natively just so it can run on newer versions of android.
I'm normally not real keen on playing a female character in these VNs, but man is this story well written and developed. I actually didn't feel any cringe with this one because it's such an amazing story. Hell, I even had a moment where I was super proud of the MC and got emotional. That says something!
I have a bug report for you (this is not a new one). If you decline to have sex in chapter five with the half-orc bard whose name I forget, the game thinks that you sexed her anyway (relationships screen shows 1/1 scenes unlocked and her status as lover, and IIRC, later dialogue alludes to it having happened).
Okay, great. I was somewhat confused when it didn't release last Friday night/Saturday morning but didn't want to be impatient. I'll be looking forward to it.
I love your work, btw. You are great at both characterization and world-building (it's rare to see that together; I'm usually happy if someone is great at one and decent at the other). Plus, (speaking as a man) women write the best porn, yours being no exception.
Yes. Android made changes that make it harder for us to develop for android without going native. And mobile is not our focus, or my competence for that matter, so we won't be making another whole version of the game natively just so it can run on newer versions of android.
aaaa I have such a huge crush on Marius holy cow. As a (mmm mostly) straight woman I have been waiting for my sexy dark edgelord for a while now <3 Hoping for much more content with him (relationship path? haven't tried those out yet but I wanna be claimed by himmm haha) Still love the lesbian content too, really cute characters who are so lovely and annoying <3 anyway sending love and cookies for making female protag nsfw games where she doesn't get raped 83492 times (but still keeps it kinky!!)
I apparently lost all my saves? Im just playing this chapter but I dont see my saves anymore, which is weird since when I check the files on the locallow folder everything seems to be fine, I made sure to re extract on the desktop just in case and still nothing
Oh and please if anyone knows of some way to maybe fix it please tell me, I've been following this story since like chapter 4, chapter by chapter, I don't want to stop now just because I'd have to skip over dozens of hours of content to continue
That's weird. I never heard of something like that happening. I'm trying to think of what could make something like that happen, but nothing comes to mind. If you create a new save file, does it show up on the folder properly?
The problem is that they don't want to work with us. Android made changes that make it harder for us to develop for android without going native. And mobile is not our focus, or my competence for that matter, so we won't be making another whole version of the game natively just so it can run on newer versions of android.
Didn't expect it to be an interesting world with developed lore and likable characters when I clicked on it but I've actually really liked reading through this and it's not the typical "kinetic" VN you see in this category with shoices that change the outcome and relationships that develop over time.
The problem is not the game, it's Android. If the game used to work but now doesn't is because you updated to a newer version of Android.
Android is going in the way of iPhone and making it really hard for us to release apps for it outside their store. The game has a problem with the new scoped storage system, it doesn't have permission to save the game and there is no way for me to ask permission without building natively for Android. As mobile is not really our focus, or my competence for that matter, I'm pretty much just waiting for Android and Unity to find a compromise, which hasn't happened yet.
mate the game is amazing, every futa scene (and there's only a few, like less than 5 and the game has dozens) involves temporary potions (except one character that only appears a bit and for only a chapter) and is only mentioned the moment it'll become a choice, and if you choose to ignore it it's never even mentioned again.
I've been playing this game for the least few days and I gotta say that I love the DnD-esque worldbuilding and storytelling, but I was wondering if there was anywhere where I can post spelling and orthography mistakes during my playthrough.
We haven't really changed how the game works on a fundamental level so you shouldn't be seeing these kinds of problems. There was someone else that was having problems with the itch.io app installer and the problem was on their end. Try uninstalling and deleting the game files (don't worry the saves are kept separate) and then installing it again.
