The devblog includes the full changelog for each update. Please leave all questions, feedback and bug reports on the devblog. There is a thread in the develoment forum, here, but I check it much less often than the blog.
The Play In Browser button to the left is updated by TFGamesSite. I do not control those updates, and the version hosted is often obsolete. The game is a plain 10mb .html, and I strongly recommend downloading and playing the latest version.
I now have a Patreon. Please consider it a tip jar, not support for faster creation of more content. For now, this is fun for me and I will do it regardless of how much is or is not pledged via some crowdfunding site. My hesitations about setting up a Patreon were worry that it might drive the fun out of this; let's keep it a tip jar and nothing more, and that won't be an issue.
Free Cities is a text-based slave management game in Twine 2, and it's my first game. The player character buys, sells, trains, uses and transforms a stable of slaves. Unlike many of the games on this site, the player character has no transformation options at all, and is almost entirely out of focus. Most of the standard slave fetishes are present, but please note that the game takes a more realistic approach towards slavery, meaning that non-consensual content is a significant part of what's present.
According to the site's definition, this is a beta because it's playable. Personally, I'm calling it an alpha because it isn't feature complete and is still very buggy. If either of those things bother you I strongly recommend coming back later; the game is progressing rapidly.
Very little: this is an open-ended slave managment game.
The out-of-focus player character, implied to be male; and his chattel.
An in-game encyclopedia explaining the game world and how to play is included.
I love this game so much. I've spent so many hours playing and re-playing it. It's fantastic. I've loved seeing how it's developed so far, and im excited to see how it evolves in the future. The one thing I would ask the author for is a scene or two involving getting fucked by a slave. The game does mention mistresses who do this, but the pc is not able to.
are all the errors i'm getting simply becouse game incomplete? i get big pop up after every week and messeges saying something like it cant find variables often IN the text
I absolutely love this game, but I noticed that I can't send a slave to the Confinement Cells, even after I appoint a Wardeness. Disapointing, that.
This is basically a sandbox game which is surprisingly fun. You can buy slaves, transform them to suit your needs, put them to work or sell them. You can also sell none at all and hoard them all for yourself while making money through other means as you're also an arcology ruler. The universe is pretty deep and well thought through. There is also a country of birth+race attached to each slave so you can get into a race-play, nationalism or something like that (I wish there was a way to set Player Character's enthnicity) by turning your arcology to Israeli supremacy Degeneration ideology :).
One thing I don't understand though is how children and pregnancy work here. I haven't played a game long enough to see the grown-up children of my slaves (are they even implemented?) and I cannot see the underage ones although in-game help says that such children are raised at schools where they are brainwashed and put on right hormones which I'd like to be able to do.
Overall its a good game, with some bugs, but if you encounter them either they're either harmless or can be quickly fixed by loading at game start . Also the whole probably carefully balanced money system goes down the drain because of the ease of making money.
How to get billions of money on week 1:
After first ~10 iterations it becomes buying at 1000, selling at 1600 which means your money grows 1.6 times each iteration.
I suggest removing market reaction to your actions or at least delaying it till next week, also capping the amount of stock slaves (menial, fuckdoll, reactor) you can have, its weird having a million fuckdolls when your whole arcology houses ~2k people and ~3k slaves.
This is an unbelievably complex game with tremendous reply value. The sheer amount of writing that has gone into this is mindblowing... but of course that doesn't matter if the game isn't hot and/or fun. I'd say it's definitely hot, with lots of options, random scenes, and events for every taste. It's kind of up to the player to create their own fun, since there isn't currently a ton of challenge or end-game. If you like sandbox-type games, it's fun. If you're looking to be spoonfed action, you probably won't like it.
