Played many a game on this site and other sites and always felt it was missing something or they were too short. So I decided to try to make one myself. OOPS It is not that easy :) So this is my first game (ever) in Twine.
It is not a finished game, so expect some empty passages and possibly some bugs here or there.
Basically I'm uploading to see if this is something people like, or hate, or whatever. So please let me know.
A game centered around a young girl Lizzy who ran away from home as she did not want to make a choice between her mum and dad when they decided to split up.
She ended up in Amsterdam, a city with a lot of opportunites, but not per se for a young girl.
It is up to you to guide her through all the influences of the city and stop the corruption of a young girl.... or not :)
It is a large file with many .webm files in it and some .jpg files.
This is currently version 7.0 - I just call it that way to keep track of development really - and I am working on version 8 which will have more events, improvements, more gifs etc.
03/01/2016 - V 0.7.2 Small update again to get rid of some small bugs and dead ends. Download this HTML version and the Data pack of V7.
Game is updated; 21/12/2016 with Version 7.0. There were several issues getting this version up. The biggest delay was due to my USB crashing which set me back in time a lot. Was able to recover quite a bit of data, but all vidfiles had gotten a new name from teh recovery tool. I also lost quite a bit of work on the phonesystem. So in order to get it out before Xmas I had to kill it. Still think the update is quite big though.
Hopefully I got all the gamebreaking bugs - there were many after the crash I can tell you - but only one person testing never... well you know.
There are 2 files now:
1 - The html file, made seperately to be able to quickly address bugs
2 - the Data file.
The html file goes on top of the Amsterdam folder - not in it!
Really Appreciate the replies so far; Please checck the forum section, the Walkthrough section and the ingame Hints section for any questions. A lot of the questions in the reviews below have already been answered; Makeup can be bought from the Mall, not the general store.
Thanks again for all the feedback so far.

You've lived all your life in a small village adjacent to The Lake District. You never realy been to a big city as mum and dad told you Liverpool and Manchester were full of dangers.
But a week after you turned 17 you're parents got divorced and you were forced to choose who to live with. There was no right or wrong choice, still whatever choice you wanted to make felt wrong, as if you were cheating on the other parent.
So that is the start and Lizzy ends up in Amsterdam. Will she be able to not fall into the dangerous downward spiral of drugs, sex, prostitution and the like? It is up to you.
You, the player who is trying to kee afloat in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
Many others, of whom some will try to help you, but most will try to gain something, which usually is money and they need a tool for that.
- Makeup can only be bought from ICI Paris at the mall, Lipstick and Nailpolish can eb bought from the general store as well as ICI Paris.
- Please visit the forums (Link at the left side) as most of the questions you may have will have been answered (likely already several times :)).
- Not all items have a function yet. Check out the ingame hints section for info on most items.
- Morale is the main driver for your pay in each job. the better your morale, the higher your pay. For most jobs addiction is a negative multiplier, meaining it reduces your pay.. for most jobs.
Not really a walkthrough but a list of locations to go to so far and key features :
- Home (duh)
- Beach (90% implemented)
- Mall (75% implemented)
- Club (party time - 85%-ish implemented)
- Spa health resort (can only get rid of addictions here atm; 10%)
- Jobs: Model - 100% done, Librarian 80%, Flowershop 25%, 1 more job available in next version Cleaning
- Park - 95% done
- Town - all events done I believe but needs polishing so 85%
- Park 'work' 90%
- Glory holes can now be found in most toilets (95% done)
- 1 more job!
- Street 'work'
- booths in club
- Dancing Queen
- more cities
Switched review to respond to the guy below.
This game is a life simulator, not just a vehicle for smut. It's your choice (influenced by events) whether to live normally or go off the rails. The stat gains and losses are regularly rebalanced and at the moment tend to push you back towards being nice, but that's to be expected if you're generally being a nice girl, working in a nice job and paying your rent on time.
If all you care about is getting to the slutty stuff, you can get a photo job easily. Day 1: try to get the job, look at the requirements (30 looks, 75 hygiene, advised to learn how to look good and to run in the park.) Easy enough. Go to the local shop. Buy the map and look at it. Go to the library and study fashion. Go to the mall and get your hair done and buy running shoes. Go home, then to the park. Go jogging. Saturday/sunday hit the library a couple of times on saturday and go jogging a lot (rebuild energy by showering) - this part is not mandatory but it's setting yourself up to progress well. Monday: shower, makeup on, go to studio. Congratulations, you're a model and can start earning cash tomorrow. Invest your early cash into make up, lingerie, jewellery, perfume, keeping hair groomed etc. Jog and keep hitting the library. Don't pay Henry in the first week, in any career it's better to invest that money in things you'll need then pay him off later. For fast descent into sluttiness, never pay him. Once your dignity has dropped a lot, wandering around the park has a much better chance of increasing your liberal score. Once you're sleeping topless you can explore all sorts of opportunities like going topless at the beach etc. None of this requires you do the model job, it just makes it easier/faster.
I came to this game because it was supposedly highly recommended and reviews posted on this site concur... but after playing this game for several hours, all I can say is that I'm not seeing why it is so highly recommended. Let me also state I have tried this game on Normal, Easy, and "Laugh" difficulty modes. Forgive me, numerous fans of this game. I have much experience with games of this kind (To name a few: Corruption of champions, TiTS, New Life), so I came in knowing what kind of game it was.
I realize that it is still in 'early' development, but the game has far too many dead ends that you only find out about after playing for a few hours (saying that something is "##%" complete in patch notes doesn't help on this. If a career path is not completed and will cause you to lose days, you should either state so at the beginning of the path in a note or allow the player to be able to find a new job during the path instead of keeping them locked down to it).
+ Lots of small fmv's or gif's of a naughty nature
+ Apparently has a good amount of naughty content, gamewise.
+ "Hint" section supplied in game that goes very in depth on stats and thier importance as well as items, thier use and whether or not they are implemented yet. very helpful.
- I have yet to reach hardly any of the naughty content. I've seen some people doing things in the park. I've been molested in town. I've been perv cammed. Everything else is beyond my patience level (over 8 hours of gameplay) to reach. To reach this content, you evidentally need to follow a very linear path through the game, which I have yet to find.
- Far too much content is either RNG locked or dependant upon stats that are beyond your control ( Dignity, I'm looking at you )
- Lots of bugs (ex: took a look at "hints" to get some info and when I left the menu, I had lost a full day in game )
My 2 cents worth of advice that would vastly improve the game:
Prepare for bitching and moaning, for I am butthurt. This game has potential... so much and it upsets me that my experience has so differed from what others evidentally have.
I mean, let's be real. This is intended as an adult game. It has lots of naughty fmv clips to depict things the character sees but to actually participate you have to jump through obscure, pre-programmed hoops to just qualify. Past that, you're against an RNG that seems stacked against you. Don't qualify for the event but encountered the scenario? "Sorry, here are the requirements for this event and btw, take this stat penalty to make it harder to qualify again in the future! Have fun with your 9-5 job in the morning and don't forget to do the dishes!" I mean it. Your dignity starts high and needs to be way low in order to qualify for sexy stuff or to get drugs (It's not terribly difficult to get cocaine, around the mid to high 70's, but the addiction and penalties aren't worth it when starting out). Dignity loss is far too easily countered in the game as well. Lose 5 points off dignity cause you were groped on the train? Okay, just turn your nose up (automatically) at a naughty billboard and regain half that amount. Then find (and keep) someone's lost cell phone or find a lost wallet (and keep the cash therein) and that'll restore more dignity(?!?). Dignity is a nearly constant see-saw in this game that can only truly be circumvented by drug use... but not cocaine. Pot and beer bring down dignity, but cocaine is the gentleman's drug. No dignity loss there. Since when is it a dignified action to steal and not undignified to do cocaine lines in a public bathroom?? The drug system in the game is unbalanced as well. Don't get me wrong, it's cool that the author had the forethought to add them, something that rarely happens. But enjoying 1 beer a day does not make a person an alcoholic. Pot is not that addictive of a drug. I agree that addiction penalties should be present, I like that. But Beer is not a poison and niether is pot. These shouldn't be lowering my health everytime I take a drink or a toke.
Also, public restrooms are healthier for you than the one at home (you restore health using them), even tho they decrease your hygiene and are the one place that you can do cocaine.
My main gripe is how difficult it is to get to anything interesting in this game. After reading forums and reviews, being a model is the route you want to take if you want to be a tramp and have sexy adventures, but to do that, you need Fashion and fitness to be at 30 to just get your foot in the door. Fashion, you can only build it 2 points at a time during the time you are typically at work. Fitness, you need to rely on RNG to get the fitness advert to be able to go to the fitness club and either pay 75 for a day of access (which incidentally will send you back home automatically several times during the day, costing you 18 to get back) or pay 400 for a week or 2000 for a year pass. Or rely on RNG to give you small fitness gains while in town. "But why don't you pay then?" Cause you're either being randomly robbed in town or robbed by your landlord raising your rent on a regular basis every few weeks. While working at the Flower shop, I was barely keeping ahead of my rent on Normal difficulty. This said, the cost of the Healthclub is INSANE . Per google: "The average monthly cost of a gym membership is $58, and out of that amount, about $39 per month goes to waste due to under-utilization. Jan 1, 2016" Euro to dollar rate: 1 euro to $1.06 . It should not cost 75 for a single day or 4000 for a full year. Maybe it's the fact I am american, but Gyms offer most or all of these ammenities but do not cost anywhere near this much. If you expect the player to be able to save this much, then maybe add in the ability to buy a car, or better yet, a better apartment where I don't have to look at a picture of someone's grandfather each game week.
Long story made short: There is far too much in this game that is out of the player's control and it feels more like a naughty "choose your own adventure" book that has large and massively tedious parts with repetitive reading before you get to any good bits than an adult game.
Love this game, but it slows down the long you play. It takes several seconds now just to change scenes. At the start everything took less then a second but after over a year in game things have slowed down considerably taking several seconds to do anything.
Version 0.7.2. Verified that with
>= 30 Fitness,
>= 50 Looks,
>= 75 Hygiene
>= 50 Energy
+ not on period
+ 15 euros
I can enter the club.
Great game. Many thanks to the author.
While playing I accidentally selected Hints and then version list. Now I can't get back to my game because return sends me back to Hints and the return on Hints send me back to Version list.
