I seem to having issues with the minigames, most specifically the sword training. The second day "Make a three hit combo" is nearly impossible, since it doesn't seem to register clicks and the target seems to flicker in and out of existence. I also sometimes get the message "Label 'hit' could not be found" or somesuch.
Edit: It seems that if I do hit the third combo, the game freezes completely.
Hey there, I just wanted to inform you of a little bug in your Extended Demo. On day 3 I was given the opportunity to do urgent jobs at the Alchemist's but I didn't have enough Courage for that, so I decided to do them the next day. When I returned to my room at the end of the day, I was surprised to discover that I had 2 memories with the Alchemist available ("Speedy Spiders" and "Frugal Flowers") despite doing no jobs to unlock them. It's not that I mind it but I guess it's not intended.
I also unlocked the memory with the Archery instructor the same day, in case it matters http://imgur.com/a/mmek3
Thank you for this awesome game. I've played through the Demo countless times over the past several months and enjoyed every second. Finally I decided to purchase the NSFW version and a few wallpapers at gumroad.com. I ended up spending 15$ in a matter of seconds :D No regrets! I was just wondering if I will have to buy the full game when it's released (after having bought the Demo, I mean). Thank you so much again. I would love to see you guys succeed with this project.
Thanks for bringing that to my attention! Based on your in-depth description (thank you btw, more info than less in these situations are priceless) I know whats happening. Unlike the Instructor Memories, the Alchemist ones carry over into new games. However, the Memory screen doesn't give you access, until you make a new memory, so that should be why you unlocking the Alchemist memories alongside the Archery one. If that doesn't sound right though, let me know and I can look further into it.
I know its odd only hers carry over, but the memories were actually a very last minute addition to extended demo and I was testing how to carry over stats. Full game gallery will be more refined and all images will carry over. Cheers! -din
It's funny that you mention the memories carrying over into new games because just right before this playthrough I downloaded the latest version of the Extended Demo and deleted all the previous files, including saves, altogether. So it's definitely something different. Honestly, I believe it's not something game breaking and you probably have more important things to do, so I just thought that I would bring it to your attention :)
Ok good to know! I'll keep it on the bug list, and I can imagine why no one has reported it till now hahah! Appreciate you bringing that to my attention, cheers Sindweller! If you find anything else let me know (= Cheers!
Almost forgot to answer your other question. Full game will be available for purchase on Steam or DRM free on our Website. The demo here on itch.io is separate and donations will not carry towards the final game. We appreciate all the support here on itchio and gumroad, your gold is helping us develop Faulty Apprentice!
Being forcefully put into bondage by multiple women, just to be left alone in a dark room with more women, one of whom is scantly clad, ALSO in bondage, and trying to take advantage of me. Oh, game, you truly do understand me! XD
this game is cool help me to create a game like this but the Kenyan way please email me
When they told me to reach out and touch someone, I never thought I would take it this far. I'm excited, and yet terrified at the same time! Ha HAAAAA....I'm gonna die, aren't I?
Another great video! Already watched it half a dozen times haha! ! haven't had a chance to implement the grammatical error fixes yet but got them on the list. You are in the home stretch now, one more video should do it. Thanks again for all the support Rock, really appreciate it. Glad you got sone touches in too, we'll add that feature to all the characters in the full game, but for now only key characters have it. Looking forward to next Sunday, cheers!
Glad to see this is progressing well, I shall wait patiently for the full version. There has been quite a bit of interest for this game on the channel, please keep me in touch if you would like me to record it.
Yup! We're working hard trying to make Faulty Apprentice happen. Be sure to check out the Kickstarter if you haven't yet. Glad to hear FA is generating interest on your channel, Fellowplayer! We will definitely want play throughs when we release so will definitely keep you in mind. You're going to flip seeing the progression since that alpha you played, cheers bud! (=
Got this one recorded immediately after Episode 2. All I wanna do is make friends with the Sword Instructor, but the game won't let me. NOTICE ME, SENPAI!! :(
AAahhh!! I almost thought sword training was going to work for a bit there!! TAT
So brutal dude, but maybe its for the best so you can save her path for when you play the full game. We already started remaking Faulty in Unity and are working to beef up the mini-games (=
Good plan for Day 5, Archery training in morning so you can do Alchemist Urgent Job in afternoon. I want to see you make it to the end of the demo, good luck! Thanks again for making these videos, they are helping us spot typos and areas to improve, really appreciate it! We are thinking of holding a play through contest on twitter so keep an eye out and post your videos.
Ps. If you touch certain characters in different parts of their body you might get different reactions! XD
Episode 2 is up! And there will be more on the way. I seriously cannot wait for the full version! :)
Another great video Rock! And yes, your playthroughs are very helpful, thank you for recording them. Look forward to seeing more. Don't forget to try touching the characters haha! Goodluck! XD
Hey there! I've begun doing a playthrough of this game, and I've enjoyed what I've played so far. I did notice one potential typo, and had an issue with one of the trainerings breaking the game. BUT, I plan on playing more, so I hope this helps! Can't wait to see more! :) Thank you!
Dude! That was great video! So happy the fantasy references are landing! My apologies for the crash on sword training. The VN software we are using is great for starting out, but not built to support quick time events (sword training). If the Kickstarter is funded we can translate the game into Unity and not only stabilize the mini games but improve them!
Thank you again for the video! I hope you can see the potential of the game and will give it another try (just save before training XD) and if you like it plz consider supporting us on Kickstarter!
Look forward to part 2! If you have any questions or any other problems let me know! Thanks for playing Faulty Apprentice, Rock!
Hello! What sort of criticisms are you looking for for this demo? Since you're looking to reprogram it in unity instead.
When I play those mini games, sometimes the actual game would freeze up. So I have to close the program and reload my save point and hope that doesn't happen again. Also, after a certain amount of task it seems like the FirstGuard always give me a game over, not sure if its intended or not.
Thanks for letting me know! Yea, the VN software we are using is not really designed for mini games, so we are pushing its limits. We started a kickstarter to hire a programmer and translate Faulty Apprentice into Unity. Thats interesting about the First Guard though.. Did you complete the Alchemist Urgent Job by end of Day 5? She's only supposed to kick you out of castle if you don't do that Job in time for story event.
If we paid for the NSFW a while ago do we have access to the newer version of it or do we have to pay again?
Sorry I missed your message! You can re-download for Free by using the previous "download URL."
There should be a way for itch to recover that from the support page, cheers!
Just trying the new demo, looks like I'm stuck in a loop doing Sword training the second time. It happens after the level 2 Sword Training mini-game while the message repeats: "The Sword Instructor gives a couple of last pointers to the soldiers she is training and walks over to you." Again and again. After reloading save and doing it again it just gets stuck.
Also, will you do something about the annoying 'drag image' while playing any skill-up mini-game? You can drag an image like the target and because of it miss taking the shot.
Furthermore I'm experiencing quite a difference, especially convenient that Auto-text button and the quick save/load! Perhaps a slider to regulate the speed of the auto-text would be a great addition as well! Also, earning Courage after completing a Job makes sense, things go faster this way. Still not through the demo, will provide more feedback later!
EDIT: Finished the new demo! Turns out the loop only happens the 2nd day in the castle, and after talking to the instructor. I was able to finish the training till the milestone before needing to continue with the story.
Hey Chinpa! Thanks for letting me know, will look at those areas right away
Excellent, glad you were able to get past it! If tomorrows kickstarter gets funded we will be able to hire a programmer to translate the mini games in Unity. That should help a lot with training bugs. Thanks again for playing! Sword up! (=
Hello dinmoney! It's me Sergei, I hope you still remember me! :p (Even if I wrote my comments a long time ago. >_> ) Anyway I have a couple of questions and I really need answers on them: 1-"So i have a 512.55 RUB on my hands, that in dollars 8.78 USD, and I would like to support this project Faulty Apprentice (And use a NSFW version ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) where I go with that. It's okay if I buy you Faulty Apprentice on my 512.55 RUB, or should I wait when the game will be released in the Steam? 2-If I I buy a game right now, (NSFM) did the game what I just buy will updated in future when you decide to develop it or should I wait for full version and them buy? And last double question 3- If I buy game in other sites (like Steam) did I support this project? And if I buy game in Steam there will be te NSFM version? (Because I know 2 or 3 game in Steam what have a NSFM material and they was censored. I don;t like censorship.)
Hey Sergei! I remember you (=
1. Buying here would be great support for us! We will be updating the demo in next couple weeks with voice acting if you want to wait for that. For news and updates follow us on Twitter!
2. If you buy now, you can use the download URL to redownload at any time in the future. If you lose your URL you can get it again from the support page.
3. Steam doesn't allow NSFW so we should be releasing that version here on itchio.
Hope that answered your questions. We really appreciate your support and glad you like our game Faulty Apprentice! (=

Hey there, I was wondering, since I pledged on your patreon, do I get the latest version of the game?
We have an update to the demo coming end of this month, will be sharing with Patrons at that time.
Thanks for the support!
I just want you to know that this game so far is great! I'll be looking into getting the paid version when I have a little more spending money.
Hey glad you are enjoying Faulty Apprentice so far! Really appreciate the kind words and support! (=
Hey I am playing the mac version of this game and i can't seem to get past the first night of rest. Is there some thing that I am doing wrong? Looks like a really fun game that I look forward to playing.
Thanks for letting me know. What does it say on the Calender, day 0 Sunday or Day 1 Monday? And what happens when you press the Leave Room button in lower left of room screen? Just did a play through and wasn't able to duplicate that issue.
On the calendar its day 0. pressing the leave room button says im too tired (which seems to be a story thing). i tried redownloading it but the issue still stands :/
goes to night time with the castle and lights but it just stays there, i cant open the menu and try to escape or anything
Ok thanks, sounds like there is an issue with the auto-save system.. Sorry to trouble you but can you answer these questions?
- Are you using the Itchio app?
- Or do you have the game files on your computer?
- Are you getting a .sav file in the game folder when the game gets stuck?
Thanks you! I just started playing and I have been having loads of fun! I look forward to seeing what else you come up with next!
WOOO!! Thanks for bearing with me, glad the no auto save version is working for you, cheers!
I purchased the NSFW version, but am having the same issues. I've played the version you have listed here, but was curious if I could get a copy of the one I paid for. Really enjoying the game so far!
Damn, that sucks man. Can you answer these for me? I am trying to find root of problem (would be nice to keep autosave feature).
- Are you playing Mac version of FA?
- Are you using the Itchio app?
- Do you have the game files on your computer? Or are you playing via a USB drive?
- Are you getting a .sav file in the game folder when the game gets stuck?
Either way I'll get you sorted out! Email me at AGLstudioArt@gmail.com with the same email you used to purchase so I can confirm it. Glad you dig the game so far and thanks for your patience!
Hey dinmoney! Want to hear a good joke?
Joke: "What do you call a warrior who is not able to fight? DISarmed!" (Insert laugh track here)
Hey mate, I was just wondering if are at all considering releasing a complete version of the game that is censored? I ask because I would love to support your work but don't feel comfortable with nudity and/or sex.
Yes, we are currently working on an all ages version. Thanks for expressing interest in supporting Faulty Apprentice!
Love the bad and the seductive girls the most, the sexy and dangerous alchemist, deliciously mysterious cloak & dagger girl and the care free bunny girl :D Will there be different endings for each or an harem ending?
Hey glad you dig the game so far and have some fav characters!! I don't want to spoil anything so I can't say much, but I will say FA will NOT be one big harem ending, cheers! (=
It's been a minute or two but the next part is here! I had to resolve corrupted footage issues but now that it's fixed the next few parts are on the way!
Great Video again Owl! Thanks for posting! Next update will help you get that Courage easier, I promise XD
looking forward to it man! Keep me posted :D
I was able to get a level of courage but no more than 1 before I had to do the end sequence of the Demo. Will we be able to get more courage and unlock a few new scenes before we are forced to end the demo?
By the way I love how you made the mechanics of the game work, can't wait to buy the full version. I bought the NSFW version, to all those who haven't, it's worth the extra distracting scenes plus you're supporting the game progression. Totally looking forward to the Wet Tunic Contest, who knows what's in store for us faulty apprentices there!
We are tweaking the courage system to grow evenly with the other stats and adding more dialog scenes with the instructors. Can't say anymore than that at this time. Thank for purchasing the NSFW version! We need all the funding we can get hahah! XD
Glad you are enjoying the game and distracting scenes! (=
Great demo looking forward to the full release, which is when by the way?
does the instructors have names?
Can't wait to try the demo. Is there any chance a mobile version is being considered. I spend close to three hours a day commuting to and from work and these types of games are exactly what I'm looking for (and many others too I hope). I would gladly pay $5+ for this to play on my phone!
Hey thanks for the feedback! We are definitely considering a mobile version and trying to keep the text and buttons large enough to work for it. Glad to hear you are interested!!
Hello, friends! I wonder - how to contact developers team by email?
To be honest, I sat down to record a video of this and ended up recording 3! The game is absolutely awesome! You've got yourself a new Youtube friend! Presently going to my college courses but I'll jump over to your patreon tonight and drop a couple dimes! Keep it up!
Hey thanks Owl!! Your support is much appreciated. Loved the first vid, can't wait to see more! Glad you are digging Faulty Apprentice!! (=
Time to finish this mother up! I can't wait for the full game! Dinmoney! Get on it! Mwhahahaha!
HHAHAHAHA love the guard line up image you made! Glad you enjoyed the demo bro! Thanks again for making the videos, Jes and I really enjoy watching them (=
Time for video 2! Gonna blast through the demo, since I did it in three parts this time! Sexiest episode evar!
Sweeeet! Good luck with the next part, something tells me you might be in for a suprise encounter XD
Alright, got the first video done from the new demo, and loved the changes! Keep it up!
WOOOOO!!! Thanks Flog! Nice first day of Sword Training! Glad you are digging the upgrades!
cant wait for next update :D
Awesome project. Rated with 5 stars.
(Before, I played this game)
Sergey(Me): Hhhmmm, like design in this game already. Let's see what we have!
(After, I played this game)
Sergey: What?! You can not end on this moment! B-but I need more! And why was cut remaining content?! It would be absolutely no need to do! *Sergey start cry like a little girl which robbed of her candy* ( T_T)
(And right now)
Sergey: Anyway I like this game! Waiting for updates, and pray to the heavens one day I got a game with all the content! ;'(
HAhahahahhaha yea, we just have the beta/alpha right now, (still learning game dev and proper labels).
Glad you enjoyed Faulty Apprentice so far!! Still have some cool new features to add before we can push towards the full game. Hoping to have an updated version by end of the month, gunna be siiiiiick!!!
Thanks for playing and leaving a comment Sergey! (=
Hey I thought I recognized your gamertag. Thanks so much for the Patreon support bro!!
Was awesome watching you play and I'm glad you are digging the game so far!! Is it cool if I use your video to promote the game when marketing time comes?
Working hard on the next update so we can get some quests going, gunna be siiiiiick!!! =D
Hello, I played the game and It does have me very interested in it, I plan to record the whole game however if it is a beta would it be better I wait until the game is fully complete? I would suggest maybe female voices as me doing the voices of the girls seems a bit odd. Also is this on Gamejolt? If not I do recommend it, its a good game and would get my 5/5.
Thank you so much for playing and recording! It is making my morning watching you play through the game so far (=
It's cool you are already recording, just be clear its the beta version, and be ready for next upgrade! (in about month or two). Going to be adding a lot more content like quests, areas of castle, and new navigation system next!
Would you allow me to use your recordings to promote the game when the time comes?
I want to get some female voice actresses too! Finalizing the script for the upcoming quests, after that I can start hosting auditions (volunteers till I can get funding).
Haven't heard of Gamjolt, but i'll check it out right now, thanks for the tip!
Glad you dig the game so far!!
Hello, yes feel free to use the recording, I just suggest Gamejolt as popular games get lots of attention there including mine and I would be happy to recommend it if I see it there.
In process of getting Faulty Apprentice on GameJolt, just had a small issue with email confirmation when signing up, but being taken care of. Thanks again for the tip, will let you know when I get FA up, or if I have any questions.
Also, thanks again for recording your gameplay! Watching your videos gave me a lot of insight on ways to improve the game (=
