For me I thought Mandy was the mother just from how old she looks and how her body looks. I saw nothing wrong with anything. Is everything going to be forced or will you be able to choose who you do things with? Can't wait to do more things with Shane. Her one scene is pretty funny if you decide to see what happens if you decide not to peek.

no idea whats the difference between 090 and 095, at least I cannot see any difference or additional content.
Still it seems nice, Its a huge relieve that its not another MC that only thinks with his dick. I so agreed with the talk that he had with the "niece" after you decide to stay and wait for her to finish the shower.

I dont know what to think about this game ... have you ever seen a guy knoting a girl with sunburn? o_O
And this guy must be a dwarf ... the table scene looks like it, or the two girls are giantess ...
seamanq, honestly said, if there is in the future not really a big quality jump from CG´s and story to the better side, I dont wanna play this again .... ^^
The majority here wanna play porn games not therapy games :p

Renders need some work and the script is all over the place. If you set them as ex-wife and daughter, the whole first conversation over dinner is ragged, at best. He knows absolutely nothing about them and they do not know he spent a lot of time in the area? Neither knows what the other does for a living?
You are not paying attention to the story then. There is always a "backstory" behind any story. In this case, this is a father who left a long time ago, has been living in a distant town, and has not really been in contact with his family. Therefore, he does not know details about his family regarding what has happened during his long absence. Likewise, his ex-wife and daughter do not know details about what the MC has been up to all those years. As anyone who has been around any length of time knows, people can change work and even the type of work they are doing multiple times during their lifetime. So a conversation about what everyone is doing for work and where Sandi is at regarding school are not unexpected, given the situation.

The hell happened here? Broken neck, swollen forearm, what is this abomination?
A developer with 2 weeks experience in Daz 3D is what happened. The renders will get better as I gain experience, thank you. By the way, you do raise some interesting points about that render. It was a complex scene that I was staging with very limited experience, and I was tending to a lot of details, so I missed how off Sandi was looking. I have asked for help in another forum to see how I could improve this scene, as you are definitely right, it needs to be fixed.

ThunderRob, thank you for the kind words, and I appreciate the willingness to help out, I really do. I have been active in online communities for well over 30 years (back to the BBS days) so I am all too familiar with how free people are willing to be when they can hide behind a keyboard and take pot shots. That having been said, I just updated the OP and added a changelog for the 0.95 revision so that people can see what was changed, and why, and I tried to credit the many folks who have made suggestions (some kindly, some not so much).

As a novice developer, I am sure that there is a whole lot that will need to improve, and putting a game out a month and a week after downloading Ren'py and Daz 3D was a crazy ambitious goal to be sure. Be sure that I will read all comments, and while I may not agree with all of them, I will take all feedback into consideration. As interest in the game grows, Patrons' opinions will hold stronger sway than those just enjoying the VN but not contributing, as is common with all VN development. Again, thanks for your support and I continue to look forward to comments and suggestions.

i first hit the internet in 1988 on a 300 baud..there were 7 other people on the bbs..lol...
2400 baud was about when I started. I would have got onto it earlier except I didn't own a computer yet, so I got on when my employer got one. I actually co-moderated a fairly large BBS for a while, so I am really familiar with the group dynamics.

You call that ambition, i call it lazyness.
You know it's bad, why do you even try to defend it? A month in Daz/Renpy?
Rushing it just so you have something to show on patreon and potentially start making money asap? This is not a race.

How are the renders good, if the characters are ugly? Aren't they part of the renders? Also, the renders don't seem particularly good, even if you set aside the design/look of the characters. The lighting and shading for example is very flat.
Not trying to start a fight, but I found this part of your review a bit unclear.
renders can be way worse. here its good.
they can be super grainy, super fucked up on poses,expression etc... but that not the case here.
as for chars, they can be ugly without affect the renders, because :
1- the chars doesnt affect the grainy or background level
2- the chars are not "totally" integrate on the redners themself but most sprites, and so can be changed easily.

as for the lighting, i not really care if its flat as long its correct (aka not too bright or too dark) and the shading join the lighting.

sooo, yes, for me even if some chars are ugly, the renders are still pretty good for a first time.

just my opinion tho.. with my terrible english, i guess its not easy to understand my point of view XD

There will be more choices in future episodes. I was trying to keep it simple for the first episode. Down the line, choices made will also influence what relationships can be built and maintained.
