  • Some locations to explore : A City with townhall, shop, bar, clothesstore, cinema, public pool, farm , park and landfill

The first project: "The Promise"

You play as a man in his mid forties who has given his family a lot of promises.
And now it’s time to follow up on them. You must work hard and make many
decisions for your life. And those will have influence on others, as well.

The game is created with Ren‘Py and features 3D renders and animations made in
DAZ Studio 3D. The game has an individual main story (The Promise) and a global
main story. (But you don’t have to follow it, if you don’t like it). There are
many side stories and smaller events, based on your decisions. It is possible
that you close a route or get a different outcome.

There are some hidden stats for triggering certain situations and stats showing
per example the corruption of your wife. You will have to raise corruption and
the relationships with your family to get certain events and more.

The game will have different endings for each character. Many things will be
influenced by what you do. Many things are possible. You can have an affair,
cheat, or live in absolute love with your wife. You can make her more open for
other things and more. But be careful with your decisions - it is possible that
the situation gets out of control. The game will be a combination of grinding
and on time and choices depending situations.

I will release some major updates every 1-2 months, regularly small updates and
some other stuff for patrons.

"The Promise" is planned as a Trilogy:

In the first part (TheBeginning) your main goal is to earn money to get entry to the capital. The city in which you start is not the city of the rich people. The interior and
other things are not looking very good.

In the second part you live in the capital and your goal is to get a
good position and one of the few places in the exclusive residential area. The
world will be influenced by your choices in the first part. It is possible to
meet chars from the first part.

In the third part you live uptown in the exclusive residential area and
it lies in your hands if it ends in a good or a bad way. The world will be
influenced by your choices in the first and the second part. It is possible to
meet chars from the first and second part.

About me and my plans:

Greetings visitors and Patrons, thanks for visiting my project page. This is my first
step into developing games, but I’ll give my very best to offer you a good game
experience.

I'm a 40 years old man living in Germany, so I'm not a native English speaker.
I play a lot of good adult games and I know there are a lot of games with
similar ideas. But ever since I was a young man, I have dreamedof creating a
computer game. I used RPG Maker MV at first, but now Iwork with Ren’Py and with
DAZ 3D I make this dream come true at last. What is most different about my
game is that while in most adult games you play a female or a young man, in my
first project you play a married man aged forty.

All projects are made for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Hope you enjoy it.

man, I made it almost 5 minutes. Read my way through the intro, went to save, and a mandatory save naming prompt appeared.

See, I'm chilling in my living room, and the keyboard is not even close to me. If, every time I want to save, I have to get up, walk across the room, and hit 'esc,' that's just too much effort required on my part.

hi, i just encountered games like that again which is why i want to ask, here is nothing locked behind patreon and shoevd into my face yes? The most I'm willing to do is pay here after a demo, not on Patreon.

Its the same version like on Patreon if this is your question.

If this works now I might have a problem later, could you maybe use mediafire or something for the download links?

The most people use MEGA and for them is Mediafire to slow. So it is MEGA here on itchio. If you have problems to download please write again.

It worked this time, but I think at a certain amount it will tell me to either buy some MEGA thing or wait 24 hours or whatever it was that one time. That's the only reason I like to mention it. Thank you for the fast reply and I will do mention it if it will cause a problem at a later download maybe.

(1 edit)

Can you answer me another question, does the game use animations? sorry just found the answer in the description...YES

When will the release be today?

in 2-3 hours

Hi, can somebody help me what i need to do in quest the hot MILF?

Xagrim help me what to do thank you.

Hi,
you have to work continuley at the farm. A long time after Karen & Sina have left. Remember what happened during your meetings with them and answer her questions truly.

Thank you very much but i don't remember what happened last time so what i need to do.

Hi there 

When will the version v1.0 roll out. And will v1.0 be like the final version of the first part of the triology ?

Hi,

around summer. Yes its the final version of the first part then.

aaaaand I also wanted to ask you if you plan to incorporate more Jenny scenes in future updates, I hope so. but if not that's enough for me too XD

The Jenny events are complete. But you can see her again if you work at the far, on Saturday. But perhaps you will see her ,too in the swcond part. ;)

Hello Friend how are you? First of all, thank you very much for creating these games for us, I know that it is not easy to design these games, and I thank you for doing it. I have a question for you and I hope you will please answer me, and sorry if I bother you. Jenny the theater girl, I loved the scenes in which she appeared, her route seemed very interesting to me, but my question is, in what other games that you have developed does that character appear? I know that corruption appears in Katie and in the promise as well, but I don't know which one else, could you please tell me, and thank you very much, if you help me I promise that I will continue to support you as I have done until today and as I will always do, Thank you friend for your attention and sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi,

because its my first game, in no other game. ;)
But if a other developer use this char its possible, but i don't know.

Hey Xagrim, question if you don't mind.  I don't mind the Grinding or the going to work every morning of the game those things are fun.  But I am curious as to why you lock, block, cut off events?  I guess a example would be Nina and the Blonde girl who works at the theater.  I have gotten Nina's scenes and continued from there.  But the Blonde girl is locked for some reason most I can do is give her Books and it ends there.  So I guess my question is are you blocking content?  Like you can do things with Nina or the Blonde but you can't do things with Both, it's one or the other?  Cause I have tried and restarted MANY times and it seems no matter my choices, stats or whatever.  A lot of what you could do in the beginning are being locked out.  Like you are "Forcing" people to follow one path the end all of the be all, a way to force multi play through.  An if that's the case it's not worth it to play.  What I meant by not worth it to play is.  The first thing you say is "A sandbox VN (open world like)"  Well it's either a Open World or it is Linear.  I think that's the first thing you should decide before you make anymore updates.  It's either Open World or it's Linear there's no it's like both.  That would be like me saying I have "like a million dollars to invest in your project."  An then saying oh it's only $1

(3 edits)

Hi, 

sorry but i don't understand what you mean.

The blonde girl has nothing to do with Nina. And i don't hink she is locked, perhaps you have overread something but its difficult to say at which point you are. What says the CQM for this quest?

Nothing is blocked but of course it gives alternate routes. And if some route is closed you have do it with one of your choices.

Its cleary a sandbox game but of course it has trigger dates.

Hmm, Thanks for the reply.  I kinda understand but not really.  The only reason I mentioned the Blonde girl is cause she works at the Theater also with Nina.  Alternate routes?  So if I am understanding correctly basically your saying whatever choice I make in the game can open or close other routes?  An Trigger Dates would be like the going shopping with Wife and Daughter, Or to the swimming pool?  Trigger dates like that?  Special days of the week you can only do certain things?

Hi,
yes some choices could open/close routes. Yes this trigger will happend for all. Yes it gives special times/days only on this some events work.

Hello guys can someone please help me about Nina the quits say compliment her boy a lot i did it a lot of times but there is nothing new and it say watch movie together but i didn't know how when i compliment her body there is 2 option 1-(?????) 2-(just talk) can someone tell me what i have to do or how can i watch movie with her...?

Are you the guy from Discord playing on Android?

hello (google translate) I'm trying to raise all the stats of all the characters to the maximum but Lisa's slutiness stats don't go up despite the fact that I bombard the blue option on her, any info? (it is currently at 2/15 but given the spamming it is supposed to be at the maximum)

I'm having a similar issue. I have Lisa's "Slutiness" at 13/15 and her "Slutty but nice" quest at 3/5. Is there something I missed? Do I need to advance other characters as I have been concentrating on her and Helena(landfill  path)?

Also I can't find the Discord page. Can I get an invitation?

Ok, I finally got Lisa maxed out. Helena is moving along nicely too. I would still like to know if there is a Discord page.

good that it works now. ;)

Here you can find discord.

Hey can someone please told me how to read the books in android like the chart book...?

Thanks for reporting.

Seems that the slider works only for the Char tab but not for the Quest tab.

Fixed in the next version.Best regards.

i cant seem to get past a photoshoot model, its asking for 5000 on REA which i have and relation lvl 3 which im guess is in the characters states? which i have her at 120/120, i cant get this quest to trigger on saturday night

(+1)(-1)

a other quest is needed before, the hint shouldn't show yet.

Same am stuck on the same part what is needed ive try everything  i can tink of

(1 edit) (+1)

I have some questions and report to say 


First, about the quest system 

Idk if it's a bug, but in Android version you can see only 4 characters and can't slide down to others, so that gives some problems cause you can't get hints and see the progress 


And this take us to the questions

I'm kinda "blocked" rn with Jenny and the black haired girl in the counter at the cinema. Can't find any suggestion to go on. The first after the chocolate thing, I remember Mc tells himself about giving her flowers but after that I can't find her anymore but in the ticket booth.. 

And about the girl with the black hair, after the encounter with bf and the bar drinking I can't seem to make the next move.. I know there's something because I've played a much older version of the game.. But with this CQM problem I can't get "hints" 

(+1)

Can someone help me please?? I'm really blocked with Lin and Jenny, font know what to do..

(-1)

Hi, thanks for reporting.
Yes the creator of the CQM is working on a mobile version.

Difficult to say because its needed to know where are you exactly.
But after the Bar you have meet her at her home, it should be the available on the map.

You have to buy a couple of times the flowers but she is only on Monday in the cinema hall.

But for faster help you should ask on Discord or in the Forum.

(+2)(-1)

I've said this repeatedly to the dev and the menu is really useless except for knowing the character stats. All this game is is an Easter egg hunt. It's really not the hard to input a scene/event tracker or even actual make the quests your given to do actually viewable in the menu. Like I said though the dev has ignored it for a long time which is even more frustrating considering you have to playthrough every single patch to get to new content.

How do we progress Helena's story line?

What do you mean exactly? You can look in the CQM if you have discovered Helena, her Quests are all in.

(+1)

Does the wife and daughter have other routes I'm not into the sharing/ntr stuff is there other ways it can go

(2 edits)

The game doesn't have NTR. For the wife you can decide which route you would follow, depends on your choices, Sharing, Exibitionism or not and so on. And the daughter is a girl with her own life.

(+1)

Should make paths more clear in game

(+1)

Agreed I was trying to find some route where my wife wasn't getting piped or groped by someone else. All I want to know is if there are domination routes or at least one where they're mine not everyones

For the wife you can have a love/exibitionism/sharing route. Mostly can you see yet in the CQM.
If you raise blue options you raise the other routes.

so for the love route we don't raise blue

This game has gone through so much... I'm proud of it :)

(+1)

Thank you.

(+2)

I think something that should definitely be added into this game is some sort of event tracker or at least a better quest menu because that menu for stats and quests is really shit I don't get how that menu has lasted this long for a game that's still in part 1

(1 edit)

Which feedback do you have exactly for the CQM? The CQM is not old its in Beta and a lot of will be added in the future. Before the CQM the game has had a other system.

On apk every time (every patch I start over) I go to the news stand to see the MC's friend and he asks you to get flowers and chocolates I can never purchase them for him nothing is interactive and I end up having to roll back and avoid going there completely.

for the CQM specifically it's not easy to use via apk to see the characters you can't scroll through them your just stuck with the top of the list and I feel it's a bit vague because you kind of have to guess on certain blue texts because it leans towards the same thing sometimes but have different values. And should definitely include some sort of event tracker just so people don't feel like they're grinding endlessly because they're lost on where to go to progress.

Unfortunately the Creator of the CQM has made it not for Android, but he is working on a mobile version. But i give him your feedback.
The CQM is the event tracker but its not finished yet and will be updated every release with new stuff. But the blue options for Michelle and Lisa are mostly in.
Yes some blue options have different values and later different outcomes. 

I don't understand what do you mean? Is this a bug on Android? On Windows/Mac the quest works fine. Is there a broken up inside?
You have not to go to the shop.  Its in the event. 

so whenever ever I go the shop to see my friend he asks you to buy flowers and chocolates and when it takes you to the shop screen you're unable to click anything so I have to rollback and avoid ever going to the new stand again

(+1)(-1)
all this waiting for so little content???? I'm getting bored, please dev don't get me wrong but I expected more from this update
(-2)

how can i give lisa massage after pool?

The massage has nothing to do with the pool.

But how and when can I give her massage?

Raise the relationship and visit her in the evening. this Quest will be later add to the CQM.

When do we get to see wife sharing content.

(-1)

Hi,

you have a lot of kinky scenes for this in the game yet.
Real sharing will possible in the seond part of the Trilogy.

Best regards.

many people are upset because the game is getting longer and longer, remember that it is a trilogy and I would like to see it finished while I am young, not for my grandchildren to finish it, I consider the game excellent, I only have that criticism that I hope the developer understands
(+1)(-1)

I've been following for maybe around 2-3 years and I really notice a lot of improvement and change in the game. I don't know why some people are so mad and trying to rush you. We see monthly updates and that's honestly a miracle on itch with all the abandoned games here. I think spending the time to make a good game is worth the time.

My one comment/complaint is that I honestly how no clue how the fishing minigame works. I've leveled up fishing to full and fish for the 6 hours to raise my chances but I don't think I've ever caught one. With the update I see there's a black oval that appears and fades, but clicking on it doesn't catch a fish. In the next attempt the oval is in the same spot but when I click it, the game tells me not to click on the same spot. I'm super lost on how to do this.

Other than that, I'm really amazed at all the content that's already in the game. I'm pretty sure I haven't seen all the scenes yet and that's saying a lot. It's been fun maxing out all the stats and seeing the changes. The hidden stats are also fun, even though they're not kinks I personally a fan of. It's really cool to see anyway. I'm a huge fan of multiple endings and consequences, so I'll probably restart to play more carefully so I can reach the ending I'd want to start the 2nd game with. But for now, I'm just trying to do everything available and having fun doing so. Thanks for all the work and the consistency! 

Hi,
thanks for your feedback.

The black oval are only a cosmetic thing and has nothing to do with the skills. It shows only how many chance you have to catch a fish. If your Level is higher you can catch more fishes.

Good to know. Have fun. :)

Best regards.

Xagrim

Are there other paths for the wife and daughter and if there are can you tell me how

(1 edit)

Hi,
its a little bit difficult, because what have you seen yet?
It give different paths for them. If you have concret questions its better to get faster help on Discord or in the Forum.
But in the future updates the CQM will have the mostly events/cutscenes inside so you can look what is open.

Best regards.

Xagrim

would you be able to tell me the routes it's been a bit since I've played

(+4)

Well, the game is exceptional. It has a different approach from the others, something even more adult; the almost RPG control that the game gives you over the actions that give you different futures enchants me a lot.

But I'd like to point out that it's pretty broken from my point of view... Lots of character developments that break in the middle, sometimes one story development doesn't follow the other.

For example: I finished almost all the events, and lastly (the main ones) the trips of our sister-in-law and her husband to our house... There the event says it ends, but there are other paths that lead to Rome. But after that the game becomes a complete void and nothing happens.

I sweated 20000 New in my REA thinking that the game would unlock Nivéria for me... But nothing happened... Then you say it's a trilogy.. I don't know if it's a trilogy of events in the game, or a trilogy of games and the second game takes place there in Nivéria..

Anyway, it scares me because the game is in version 0.86, and playing gives me (in terms of game progress) the clear feeling of a game that is in version 0.40/0.50. Because the game takes a long time to engage, and when it engages the reward is not so great. I have more than 30 hours of gameplay, and I come to an empty end without much sense of progress with a wife (menáge) and daughter (the most I see of her is her pussy), no touching.

The game works very well in terms of tension and foreplay for great sex to happen, and it's nice while that happens, but the game focuses so much on that that it becomes nauseating, because there are hours and hours of it, it stops being pleasant .

I want to close by praising the project, and the differentiated and realistic idea of life that the game brings us, it's a planned project, and it hits many points, for example... A random 40-year-old married guy who has to work his ass off to fulfill your carnal desires and the woman's desire for life, not to mention hairy pussies, virgins, incestuous relationship, ménage, the wife's drama itself, a refined humor in the game (in many moments you have a good laugh).

When it's ready, it has everything to be the best Ren'Py game I've played since it became a rage in my teens in 2015. A big hug and luck to the developer. I hope I have alerted with criticism, and encouraged with praise.

Hi,
thanks for your feedback.

For the sister in law: The sentence of Rome could be a little bit misleading. It gives a alternate route for this. If the sister route ends you are on the alternate route in the warehouse which starts at the Newsstand.

Trilogy means a Trilogy of games.

It gives a FAQ which could answer some questions.

Best regards.

Xagrim

Bom, o jogo é excepcional. Tem uma abordagem diferenciada dos demais, algo mais adulto mesmo; o controle quase que RPG que o jogo te da sobre as ações que dão diferentes futuros para vc me encanta muito.

Mas gostaria de ressaltar que está bem quebrado do meu ponto de vista... Muitos desenvolvimentos de personagem que quebram no meio, as vezes um desenvolvimento de história não acompanha o outro. 

Por exemplo: terminei quase todos os eventos, e por ultimo (dos principais) as idas de nossa cunhada e seu marido a nossa casa... Ali o evento diz que acaba, mas há outros caminhos que levam a Roma. Porém após isso o jogo se torna um completo vazio e nada acontece.

Juntei suados 20000 Novos no meu REA achando que o jogo iria desbloquear Nivéria para mim... Mas nada aconteceu... Aí você diz que é uma trilogia.. Não sei se é uma trilogia de eventos no jogo, ou trilogia de jogos e o segundo jogo se passa lá em Nivéria..

De qualquer forma me assusta por que o jogo está na versão 0.86, e jogando me passa (em questão de progresso do jogo) a clara sensação de um jogo que está na versão 0.40/0.50. Pois o jogo demora muito pra engatar, e quando engata a recompensa não é tão grande. Tenho mais de 30 horas de gameplay, e chego a um fim vazio e sem muita sensação de progresso com esposa(menáge) e filha (o máximo que vejo dela é a buceta), nada de toques.

O jogo trabalha muito bem nesse quesito de tensão e preliminares para o grande sexo acontecer, e é sim gostoso enquanto isso acontece, mas o jogo foca tanto nisso mais tanto que se torna enjoativo, por que são horas e horas nisso, deixa de ser prazeroso.


Quero fechar exaltando o projeto, e a ideia diferenciada e realista de vida que o jogo tras a nós, é um projeto ambicioso, e acerta em muitos pontos como por exemplo.. Um cara aleatório de 40 anos casado, que tem que trabalhar pra caralho pra realizar seus desejos carnais e o desejo de vida da mulher, sem citar bucetas peludas, virgens, relação incestuosa, ménage, o próprio drama da esposa, um humor refinado no jogo (em muitos momentos você da boas risadas). 

Quando ficar pronto tem tudo para ser o melhor jogo Ren'Py que eu ja joguei desde que isso virou febre na minha adolescência em 2015. Um grande abraço e sorte ao desenvolvedor. Espero ter alertado com as criticas, e incentivado com os elogios.

what happens that nobody thinks, it will be that they are not interested in the game because it does not advance and the updates are poor, Dev please pay attention to this

(+1)
someone???? nobody???

(+1)
someone is also wondering why no one writes here, the comments have been dwindling as the game gets endless

(+3)(-1)

The base is so good, i can't imagine the final result being less than awesome; going from hate to love makes it a great experience and the relationship development with all the girls is really nice, the only negative aspect is that you can't know how far you are from a scene/dialog (if you need more love, corruption, or hidden stat), but maybe it is for grinding purpose (wich i'm totally fine with).

So yeah, that's my review for this project, my hype for it is as big as for any pokemon game (it's a lot, take it as a compliment) :)

(1 edit) (+1)

With the next updates the CQM (Character and quest screen) will be get more updates. So it get easier to find events/scenes.

(+2)(-1)

It's been forever since I played this game since I remember it being heckin long, but did we get past corruption 3 with the daughter yet, last I remember was finally unlocking a couple keyhole scenes

DEV pls release a proper  updated playthrough with a  proper in game quest tracker . u can skipp one  months update but pls add these features they are much imp .people cant even play half of your content . and add all girls in the character list

I'm Stuck with Lisa.. i was in the Cinema and in The Bar.. i also play the Hole Bar Scene with candy.... now i massage her every sunday and go to the Public pool... but there are no blue options... what now? No shower any more together...

(+1)

The shower will be repeatable in one of the next updates. And more stuff about her NTD.

(+1)(-2)
Even if I don't want to, I'm going to wait for several updates to pass to play more content, this lasted only 15 minutes of play

(-2)

Depends on which stuff you are waiting for. When perhaps  it could be 15 Minutes.
But this latest update has a lot of more stuff as 15 minutes.  Alone the new Helena stuff is much more as 15 minutes to play.

(+2)

I waited long to continue this game but my save files are not supported. For this kind of games it is incredibly boring to replay, even with the skip buttons. Are there any save files I can download?

(+1)(-1)

No save files, but you could ask on Discord or in the forum.
