Timelapse | Erotic Game | The First Day

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Hey there! This is the first public build of my new game project (and my first time posting on Newgrounds – be gentle!) called Timelapse.

If you’re looking for a free downloadable version or if you’d like to support the development of the game, check out my Patreon page at: https://www.patreon.com/BBBen

Overview:
Shuji has lost the last month of his life. Now he finds in that time he's been dating a group of gorgeous, out-of-his-league girlfriends. What happened in that time? And will he be able to turn a group of jealous ex-girlfriends into a harem? Choose how you build your skills and which women you’ll focus on, as you date the girls in order to unravel the mystery and unlock interactive, point and click sex scenes.

This edition, titled "The First Day" includes the full first day of the story, introducing much (but not all) of the cast. There's much more interactive gameplay still to come, though!

Known issues: (to be fixed in future versions)
- There have been issues reported with saving and loading (please report them if they continue to appear!)
- The "skip" function is too fast.
- On Newgrounds sometimes the game just loads as a black screen. The downloadable version doesn't have this problem, so if you'd like to try that instead you can get it free here: https://bbbenaif.blogspot.com/

for a early build, not all that bad. my only complaint comes from hiding things before you reach the apartment (as the start of actual gameplay, that is when players are most likely to start using saves. not many people save mid-intro). once skip is made usable, i can see only really doing the intro (prior to the apartment) once. i cant seem to find the secret card thing unless it just has a bug that prevents it from showing up in the gallery, but i did find the easter egg wit emi in the tracks... i can see potential, but it does need to be expanded. just the stats as the gameplay can get stale fast (especially with only one set of flavor text per stat), but you did already mention plans for girl interactions. the harem size might end up being the key between good and bland.

BBBenGames responds:

Of course, expanding the game is what I'm working on at the moment and there's a lot more still to be added to the gameplay. You'd know if you'd unlocked the card, as well. Building more into the game takes time.

In the long run, should you play it again, you may also find reasons to play the intro again, but it's going to be the least interactive part of the game anyway.

Very well done so far, can't wait for the next update! Amazing art and story, keep up the great work!
Only problem was when I first started playing I put it on skip, and things were moving WAY TO FAST, so restarted and clicked my way through, good choice all in all.

I KNEW IT!

You never trust a normal looking guy wearing a hoodie in the shadows!!!!!

Seriously though, this is one of the best looking projects I have ever seen in a while, and not just from an art perspective-
The story set up so far is amazing and interesting, and you actually drop hints for those that are willing to be thorough and examine everything, while also not being needed to enjoy-

The idea for the gameplay mechanics sound interesting as well (although you of course don't really experience them with this being a demo of just what the first day will be like-) and I can honestly see the time management aspect being nice, as long as it's not *too* challenging, as a lot of adult games, strangely seem to have trouble finding that balance early on-

I also will say I'm interested in the characters present, although of course that's mainly from the mystery surrounding the entire game as a whole-
But all the girls definitely do have their charms and personalities.
My only criticism would be that the protagonist doesn't really seem to be reacting quite right given the situation he's put in-
He never really explains anything or gets frustrated when all the girls suddenly go from hot to cold to him-

He just kind of sits there like "Well...I have amnesia, I have no idea what the fuck is going on, I'm surrounded by a bunch of angry women, the last thing I remember was getting hit by a train trying to be a hero...meh, guess this is my life now-" I get that he's going through shock, but he just sits and says nothing a lot of the time instead of trying to explain how he legitimately thought that he was dead, before having a month long black out-

I don't know, lately I just have a thing against protags who just kind of sit around and accept that everything around them is going horribly wrong and that they're getting blamed for it all-

First impressions matter a lot, especially when it's for the character whose eyes you'll be looking through-

That's just my own personal opinion though, I had a blast playing this demo-
I think I saw all the secrets and most of the text, but I don't really know-

I think my only real problem with this so far is that it's just a demo and not a beta or something, so keep up the great work! XD

I would support on patreon, but I really just don't have the money, I will be following here on Newgrounds though-

BBBenGames responds:

Thanks very much, I'm glad you liked it! Also, thanks for the feedback on the details of the story points; that's helpful to hear and I'll think about throwing a few edits in to sharpen the hospital scene.

Enjoyable game. First playthrough froze on the sex scenes during his blackout, specifically when Emi is introducing another girl.

Second playthrough, I tried to use the skip option... but then it was skipping through everything. I tried pressing it again and it weirdly continued to skip, but at a slower speed. Refreshed the page. Started from scratch and the game seemed to run ok after that.

Having said a ll that, superb game. Once properly fixed and fleshed out, it will be quite enjoyable.

Just Amazing Voice Acting in this early state of a game well done like everything else like the story the art etc.

BBBenGames responds:

Thanks very much! I've got some fantastic VAs working on it. And I'm glad you like the story and art too, of course. ;)
