    This thread is for the Harem RPG game, a RPG-VX ACE game for which I'm the lead designer and programmer. I would love it if you would give a try and let me know what you think of it!

    Fetishes: Hetro/Lesbian Sex. Vaginal/Oral/Anal. Sexual domination/slavery/exploitation. Mind Control and Coercion. Heavy bondage themes.

    Plot synopsis (no spoilers beyond the intro):
    You are a noble in a fictional, classically ancient land. After being framed for a military debacle, you are disgraced and are forced to watch as the enemy casts a great curse on your people, making your women barren. With no other choice, you decide to raid other lands, bringing their women back in chains so your kind can continue. But you’re blown off course and find yourself in a strange land, blessed by an angel an artifact that lets you turn the women you meet into [somewhat] willing slaves. But there are many forces with their own plans for this land. Can you find a way to return to your land with a hold full of fertile slaves or will you be brought down by plots within plots?

    Current content: Harem c5m1 patreon, c5m0 public.
    23 women to find and have sex with. 17 enslavable through early access content.
    177 scenes among them (all generated in 3dcg)
    2,600+ images and a similar number of pages of text/dialogue.
    10+ hours of gameplay
    Custom sprites/faces for each character

    Download links:
    Base game, requires VX ACE RTP installed separately.

    Harem is a dark adult RPG featuring heavy mind control, slavery, bondage and coercion fetishes as well as a spiritual subtext and questions on morality. It is not for the faint hearted or easily offended! Nearly everything that you do in the game would (and should) have you arrested in real life but some of us enjoy the darker fantasies. If you do not, don’t play it. What I hope you find if you do choose to play it is an interesting story jammed full of as many interesting characters as I can think of and then get to watch as you fuck them into slavery.

    One of the things to keep in mind as you are playing is the game isn’t a linear structure of events. The characters, plot and world will change as you make choices. While there is a limit to what a small team can do, playing the game multiple times will let you see more of the world and watch the characters evolve in different way. And of course fuck those characters in different ways as well.

    Please give it a try and let me know what you think. Good or bad, bug report or idea, I want to hear it. Feedback is tremendously motivating to me so please post here! Many of the events and H scenes came directly from this thread, I'm always looking for new ideas.

    A few minor issues with 4m3 that I'll have corrected for 4m4, but some of the stories in 4m4 are burning in my mind and I've started writing them. First one I wanted to work on was Jessica and the Circle Guild. They weren't directly part of any 4m3 content, but they've had interactions with a few of the major characters in 4m3. So 4m4 will have some of those relations updated for the new balance of power that happens in 4m3. And you'll fuck Jessica again (of course!). Different teasers on the Patreon/blog as usual!

    Making good progress on 4m4 already! Jessica, Vanessa, Angelica's writing and images are all complete and mostly coded. Rhea/Heather/Dianna and Fiona/Angelica are in progress, as are Naitay's and Kathleen's unique quests. And yes, 4m4 will unlock both Angelica and Fiona's whoring abilities!

    What I'm also seeing is a lot of group content. About half the content will have supporting roles from other slaves and quite a few of the scenes will be threesomes. So a lot of character interaction and growth as well as a ton of fucking!

    I'm working on a higher-res option for Harem as well, but not sure if that will make the 4m4 cut or not.

    And let's do teasers! As usual, Patreon, the blog and the forums will all be getting different teasers!

    Chapter 4 Minor 3 is out for the general public! 4m3 is really designed to resolve a lot of the macro issues that you created as you traveled through Celee, enslaving the most beautiful women in the country. The end of Kathleen's arc in 4m2 introduced a new threat which has to be resolved. While everyone in the westlands is sworn to you, the relationship between the factions there is unsteady at best. 4m3 also starts the focus swing of 4m4. 4m4 will be heavily focused on individual characters and resolving leftover questions about them before heading into Corsix and adding depth to them.

    4m4 is going a bit slower than I hoped. Well no, it's gotten bigger than I expected. We'll probably be about 300 images and more than 300 pages of text by the time that it's done. Probably end up closer to a patreon release on the 10th than the 5th.

    But enough talk, lets get to the porn!
    Harem (v2c4m3.1).exe

    v2c4m3
    Content Additions
    -The end of Kathleen's sequence may have resolved her past, but it was a bit of a cliff-hanger for the rest of Celee. You'll have to work with the Celeean Swords to address this new threat and change your relationship with them fundamentally in the process.
    -You control both of the human groups in the Westlands, but the peace between them is shaky at best. You'll need to unify your followers before going further into this new land.
    -With a member of the Celeean Swords now part of your Harem, Heather will have additional quests for you.
    -Terra, Sarah and Donna all have quests to explore their characters and get sweet unique gear for them as well!
    -Added a new shop in Eowen next to Fiona's, Amazing Mechanics, selling off-hand items for those who can't use a shield or dual-wield.
    -New Brothel scenes for Donna, Samantha (dark route only), Sarah, Heather and Kathleen
    -8 new in game scenes, 5 brothel scenes and two bonus scenes added!
    -167 new images, 210 pages of new text!
    -Teased a new character!

    Bug Fixes/Modifications
    -Significant buff to Noemi, giving her new skills and reducing the cost of existing ones.
    -Kathleen's Frozen Collar was supposed to be removed at the end of her questline and the stat buffs it gave her transferred to her directly. There was a few scenarios in 4m2 that wouldn't remove the collar, those have now been resolved retroactively.
    -Increased the damage scaling of Terra's spells.
    -Improved quest guidance through quest log item, still in beta state.
    -Put conditionals into Naitay and Phoebe's brothel stories to adapt to plot/personal progression.
    -Cleaned up Eowen as you progress the story to reflect the town rebuilding over time.

    Hey Ker good to hear from you.

    Been a long time follower of your game since the first time you released it, I have to say that the reboot of the game is just as good as the first version I'll be following this game for the foreseeable future so much so that you and a few other game makers have inspired me to try my hand at a H-Rpg but it died when my old computer died, I'm thinking about getting back to it if I do I would like your help with the 3DCG program you use for making the scenes in your game.

    Also I'd like to know what your inspiration for this game is/was.

    I'd be glad to answer a few basic question on 3dcg but you'd be best served by swinging over to hongfire and getting the basics down first. Just keep in mind that Harem is a full time job for me and I can only spend so much time working with other people on their projects.

    As to my inspiration? Well that was years ago! From memory I really enjoyed games like slavemaker but whenever I played RPGmaker or other community projects they were corruption stories from a female perspective, which isn't something that I really enjoyed. A person going by aslave had created a custom engine for game creation and I really enjoyed playing with it, creating a story where you played as a male and corrupted/enslaved other characters. He ended up dropping the engine so I transitioned over to RPG maker to continue my hobby. And it kind of grew up from there ;)

    Ok Ker I will check out Hongfire but for right now I don't have a working copy of RPG Maker so it will be some time before I get back to making a game, that and the fact that my aged and disabled mother and step father's health has gone down hill big time so I'm taking care of them so I really don't have a lot of time for game making.

    Slavemaker I remember that game and I really enjoyed it, like you it's what sparked my interest in making and playing H-RPG games.

    0">Definitely making progress on chapter 5. Most of the month has been dedicated to mapping and coding, I think I have the vast majority of all that in place for the next few releases, now the focus is on getting the content in.
    0">
    The October release will likely be the first 3 days in Corsix. Covering the initial entry sequence (imaged this time), the events occurring at night and Samantha's initial foray into town, and then the ability to choose between Noemi, Heather and Kathleen for the next 2 quests. Joan's on the bubble, I have an idea of what I want her to do in Corsix but not sure if I'll have the time to write and image it before moving release.

    The 4m4 public release will also be this Friday!

    I am glad to hear of the progress that's being made in the next release and I'll be looking forward to playing it when you release it.

    All in all out of the many H-rpg games I have played to date Harem is best one so far.

    Harem (v2c4m4.4).exe

    The expanded resolution and fullscreen options are in the game, but still a bit quirky. Sometimes images will shrink or expand from the borders, but never enough to compromise the scene. I think as a whole it makes the game better so we're going to run with it as is for now and try to fix the inconsistencies for chapter 5!

    Played the latest release and I have to say this game just get's better and better with each release.
    Ker I have to say this game is a classic, the characters have a life of their own meaning that they are not flat 2D characters, the storyline is deep and involving and the humor is well done.

    5m0 is nearly ready to enter testing and I can put out some initial patch notes. Just keep in mind that these aren't set in stone.

    -There is a bonus scene that happens as you leave Lesser Corsix and enter the mines. If you saved at the exit, make sure to go back into town to see it!
    -Begin to explore the largest city to date. More locations will open up during later revisions.
    -Radically improved introduction to Corsix quests featuring a 20-30 page introduction explaining how the sequence works and giving you a guided tour of the city.
    -First 4 Slave quests added: Samantha, Heather, Noemi and Kathleen.
    -Both a sexual and non-sexual route to complete each slave's quests
    -12 new in game scenes, 2 new Patreon Bonus scenes

    Finalized patch notes for Chapter 5 part 1

    All content for the first part of chapter 5 is completed! It went about as I expected. We were able to finish Noemi in time, but Joan will have to wait for the second part of chapter 5. Two new non-canon bonus scenes, one commissioned by Cecilia again and the other the inverse of Alena's bonus scene last month. Patch notes are now final. Only big addition is Du's contributions. He's helping us go back through the earlier content and try to clean up some of the text. So far he's finished the first island and will be working on Eliba. Image count and text length finalized. Should be released by this weekend!

    One thing I could use is a save to test the Sarah fix. If you ran into the issue where Sarah disappeared from the Castra after completing Vanessa's training please send it to haremrpg@gmail.com

    So looks like chapter 5 part 1 is stable, letting me focus on the next section of content. The second part of chapter 5 will be covering the next 3 days in Corsix.

    The nightly events will have the player move into a more comfortable abode and have a series of visitors. First night is still up in the air for who that is, there's currently a Patreon poll going on to determine who gets to be your 'conjugal visitor'. Then the Namuhists will make an appearance followed by an old friend.

    The day quests will most likely be Angelica, Naitay, Rhea/Alena, Joan and probably 1-2 more yet to be determined. As usual there will be a non-sexual route for all of your slaves to get your votes. A few teasers in the usual places (Patreon, Blog and Forums).

    I'm also considering changing the release schedule. Currently it's split. Patrons get the new content when it's ready and then the public gets it near the end of the month. Which is kind of a pain to maintain from my end and gives me a week or two where there's minimal incentive to to sign up and support development. I might just do both the rolls on the same day. Patrons get the newest content and at the same time the public gets the previous month Patreon release. It will add a week or so for the next public release but then you'll be getting new content every month, same as the current schedule. Let me know what you think!

    And of course, teasers! Although the upload tool here seems to be broken, but the patreon/blog/other sites have 'em!
