An ordinary high school student named John comes across an object of immense power on an otherwise ordinary day. Will he use it to pursue his own deepest desires? Or will he and his friends be caught between forces they don't understand?
These kinds of content usually only make up brief portions of the game, but they’re worth mentioning here.

\To fix the display errors on the user end; you can go into \renpy\display\image.py (open with a text editor)
Then change line 696 from "if len(matches) == 1:" to "if len(matches):"
This will cause the engine to pick the first image it found, instead of saying it has multiple choices.
This is not a valid fix for the author; he should get rid of the dupes (which also blow up the filesize).
First of all, great game, thoroughly enjoyed it as soon as I got to the only completed path.
I just have some advice for anyone picking it up and playing for their first time, show Kiyo the remote control once you get the option, because if you don't the game is full of dead ends. It's unfinished, but the potential really is there and it's a neat little game.
Also - for anyone experiencing errors (in-game errors, not python errors which result in a crash):
Unpack your game from its zip folder and put it on your computer, after which you can run the game as an administrator and it should be devoid of errors. I think (I'm not sure) that it's a result of the way winRAR works in its file previewer, the game seemingly has 2 files to choose from when displaying certain character images and the result becomes ambiguous, meaning it does not decide and the program should stop, but there's an error message put in place so that you can keep playing or check details.
I played through most of the game and tried several routes. To me, it didn't seem to have much content. There was stuff crossed out, and even with skipping the dialogue, I could get the gist of what is happening. Suprisingly short, but it is clear that work was put into making this.
I would say... 3/5 for enjoyability.
My personal favourite game on this site so far, Student Transfer is shaping up to be very promising indeed.
While it does have an admittively frusturating amount of crossed-out options of 'Path Under Construction'-style dead-ends, the world and characters it develop are full of potential and really help push this above it's inspiration, Press-Switch, in terms of quality.
You do have to actually have to work a bit; acutally read and think before you come across any real sex scenes, and even then they are fairly infrequent in terms of the game as a whole.
If I had to have one complaint (other than the fact that lots of the game is still under development) it's that the Female John storyarc (one of, if not the only completed arc I've found) feels somewhat... unfair. Your friend Kiyoshi turns you female, then messes with your mind so you act like his ideal girl. Of course, you can fight against this mental change (Crossplayer Ending), but you can also give in and become Kiyoshi's girlfriend (Jane Doe Ending). The thing is, usually in stories messing with peoples' minds to your own personal gain usually isn't considered a good thing to do. And, if you think about it, Kiyoshi just tried to kill off his best friend and replace them with a girl who has no choice but to act to his every wish.
That just sounds... wrong. I understand that life isn't fair, but... You'd think John would at least think about taking back the remote and undoing that mental change, or else doing something to have Kiyoshi face karma.
I don't know; just a minor thing that bugged me.
Reguardless, this game, at the state it's in, is absolutely overflowing with potential, and I'm looking forward to where the writers go with it next.
The artwork is lovely, the music is often well-placed, and the story can be incredibly clever and ingenuitive.
If you enjoyed Press-Switch, or if you just enjoy a good transformation storyline, then I highly reccomend this game.
Can't wait for 3.0!!!
