A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Buy Now$12.00 USD or more

The original blurb for the non-Ultimate Edition:

Hey, kids! Have you ever wanted to be sucked into a vortex and spit out into a world full of talking animals?

A walk in the woods turns into something a lot cooler when you and your friend are transported to a land much like ours.... but with talking dragons and upright, walking, talking animals of various species. Are you trapped there? Will you ever get home? Each day brings new mysteries and adventures, and you interact with a host of different characters to learn the ins and outs of this brave new world. A visual novel format with choices per scene. Not every choice will lead to massive change, but it will determine your friendship levels with each individual that you spend time with. Part Adventure, part Dating Sim, all weird and wild.

What's new?

Four new friends, including a few spooky ones! I mean, if you have ever wanted to date a Werewolf, now is the time. There's also a completely new October/Halloween arc!

Also: optional NSFW additions to all of the optional sex scenes. Short, text-based scenarios. 

Features

  • A cast of 10+ characters.
  • Each day, interact with 8 different people to learn more about the world and those that live in it.
  • A chance to change those around you via your talks with them - will you leave this world for better or worse?
  • Want to date a porcupine? You can do that.

There are some sexual situations and innuendos, but nothing hardcore. If you want Furry Porn, look elsewhere.

Is it possible to run this game on Mac or Windows? Do I need to find my own Ren’Py executables and figure out what to do with them? Help

(1 edit)

I had them set to Hidden. Everything is up now.

Yay!

I purchased this as part of the Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality. 

I'd like to bring awareness to the fact that the one darker-skinned human character is cast as the scapegoat/bad guy, which also happened in another game I recently tried to play from the bundle (Brassica). This is a terrible trope and one of the very caricatures of black people that the bundle was created to help change.

Although an interesting storyline, I can't continue to play this game.

I am sorry that you were hurt by our game. That was never our intention. I do, however, feel the need to point out that Anson is not the only African American human character in the game (although your point of Anson being darker skinned than Dorothy is noted), and even the main character's race, sexuality, gender, nor ethnicity is ever identified, left up to the player. But beyond that, I do understand your concern and we will do better to gauge the content of our products for any future socially conscious bundles. 

Through unconscious bias, your game feeds into a negative stereotype of dark skin = evil/bad guy. That's a problem, and it was my hope that you would take this concern seriously and take action to remedy this issue in a future update as another developer promised to do.

Talking about how Anson's not the only dark-skinned character in the game and how the main character's portrayal is left up to the player is an attempt to detract and deflect from the problem I raised. My primary issue was not inclusivity - it was the harmful trope, and I made that very clear.

The equivalent of an "I'm sorry you were offended" apology is not an apology - but that's fine, it's neither wanted nor needed. The entire point of the movement is to bypass empty gestures, listen to feedback/criticism, and take action in a meaningful effort to change things for the better.

Without doing these things, being a part of this bundle becomes lip service and the equivalent of throwing money (your game proceeds) at a situation while thinking that's all you have to do.

No.
It isn't.

My above response was very poor. The damage is done, and what was written in my response can't be unwritten, but I am going to be using this week to do a rewrite of the Furries script. You are right, and action will be taken to correct this in our game, and I would like to apologize to you personally for how I responded to your comment. You brought up a serious matter and I in no way should I have internalized it.

Don't see an option for the risque descriptions. But guess I might have to start over since saves don't seem to update.

I uploaded a new build with a clearer flag. The option should start at the beginning of the game, but if it keeps on not showing up, let me know. 

so this popped up when I clicked start

New patch should have fixed it.

Me and my friend saw this and thought this would be a fun game to play to pass the time, neither of us thought we'd fall in love with Andy Clarkhammer LMAO we beelined to his route immediately. 

I'm glad.

Hello, does the MC have a canon gender or are they supposed to be neutral? Wondering because Lysandria just referred to the MC as a guy. 

Oz is canonically male, but every love interest is romancable, be they male or female. There is a coming content/patch that expands upon that.

what happened to the mac version?

Apple has made it super difficult for indies to work with, but Furries/Bears was made before their new policies for verification, so the Mac edition should still work. If it is not up there, that is just an error on my part, as we recently put out a new patch.

The only download listed is one with Linux in the filename but tagged as being for Windows.

so I was doing the date with Clarkhammer and well this happened

I also noticed a patch for today were said errors fixed? Just asking out of curiosity

(1 edit)

Yeah, I had accidentally left open a DLC flag for some upcoming NSFW/Charity summer DLC (that will be included in a new patch for the UEdition). The new upload should fix it.

Ah cool it went through with the date. Might keep that save around for later <3< I did get the game through the big bundle going on. It was fun playing and will most likely play more of this for sure.

why

why not?

i guess that's all the justification you need at the end of the day

I like the game, but I found a bug (version from itch.io)

Second day of Haloween Preparations, attempting to speak to Bethany

No worries. I am enjoying it greatly. Let me know when the fixes are done and I can continue the game :)

Summary: Final Wren date scene errors
Day 2 and day 3 of Bethany Haloween not working

Will inform of any more i come across

Fixed.

No, Steam won't let me publish the same game just with all DLC included.

Does gift card work ?

Excuse me?
