"The Alchemist" follows the journey of a young transmutationist, skilled in the art of making mystical potions. Something of a dejected hermit, the alchemist has spent the past few years providing his services to the simple townsfolk that reside near his tower, but otherwise has lost passion for his craft. However, when a woman with a peculiar problem comes seeking his aid, he soon finds a new lease on life.
"Episode 0" is a self-contained story, possessing a mostly linear path with a few variables. It is, however, abled to be played through start to finish.
"Episode 1" is in-progress, and features an explorable city. Planned features include fleshed out characters, numerous locations, and acceptable missions/tasks.
Transformations in Episode 0 focus around breasts, including: expansion, to scales both huge and unreal; lactation; and hyper-sensitivity. References to other TFs can be found sprinkled throughout.
Transformations in Episode 1 will be much more varied, pertaining to breast (expansion and lactation), muscle growth (both male and female), animalistic traits (such as fur and scales), and inanimate objects.
An alchemist, master of transmutation, the art of blending science and magic, has grown somewhat jaded toward his craft. Though alchemy can produce remarkable changes in both objects and people, the nature of magic dictates that these chances always be temporary. A fact that has flung this particular alchemist into something of a depression.
However, one day, an unlikely visitor could bring about the change he so desperately seeks. Unlike his usual customers, this woman has no come for some simple potion or remedy. Instead, she comes seeking help for a cursed affliction that has robbed her of her ability to orgasm. Thus, the alchemist seeks to break the curse the only way he knows how, to completely overpower it. Through a series of transformations, he hopes to push her so far into the realm of pleasure that she can overcome any mystical malady.
In the aftermath of breaking the woman's curse, the alchemist finds passion for alchemy renewed, but his resources dwindling. Thus, he sets out to the city of Hubwald, the capital of all things magic.
While much of the story of Episode 0 is linear (and where there are choices, there are no 'wrong ones'), there are three decidedly important variables.
These choices are what dictate the final scenes of Episode 0. Try different combinations (and maybe don't show a hungry ooze a lactating breast (or maybe do)).
Decisions prior to answering your door are purely to shed light on the world and main character and have no bearing on future content.
Truly one of the best tf games I've ever seen. Dear Brogan you just made my day
Already a great start, great world building, likeable characters, nicely contained story in itself, a lot of future possibilities, and with the added twists, you will not burn yourself out through hundred of different tf permutations.
I found the writing to be quite good and engaging, but the lack of choices in this first episode was a bit of a dull surprise. However I understand that it is just an introduction into a greater story with far more open possibilities, so what it is now is quite fair.
Transformations in the current release are all based around the same core transformation of BE, but what you have as the avatar is alright and very justified as the story goes through its tale. Interaction is very linear at this time, the story being what it is as a teaser, but acceptable given the character background and story world groundwork that should lead to more later.
Cautiously recommended; I am keen to see more, but people need to be aware that this first episode is text-heavy, so don't go in with too many expectations.
Pretty good start here. I'm looking forward to more. I would like more choices that more dramatically affect characters, but I understand if you that's not the direction you wish to take.
I will admit, I wasn't expecting much. New games tend to be rather barebones. Yet this one certainly surprised me. Concise, clear, and above all good writing and a completed story (if open-ended) make this game well worth playing already. I'm looking forward to further episodes.
