In a world of Magic, Monsters and Mystery, you are the Faulty Apprentice!

Faulty Apprentice is a fantasy adventure dating sim with RPG elements and mild nudity. You take on the role of an ordinary farm boy that left home seeking a glorious apprenticeship. You have had a couple jobs, in fact, you have had a lot, more than you can count. Why do you keep getting fired? If you can't hold an apprenticeship at this castle, there is nowhere left!

Is a lifetime of failure leading the Apprentice to a greater purpose? Or will he fail in a blaze of glory like always? Perhaps with your help and some new friends, you can turn this Faulty Apprentice into a true hero!

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! (=

Cheers!

Geoff Trebs @dinmoney

Yes, that's help me a lot. Thank you! :)

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!

No worries!

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?

Hey made a custom No Auto Save build of Faulty Apprentice Mac demo for you, hopefully that will help!
FAdemoMacNoAutoSave
Cheers!

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!

Glad to hear it mate! I look forward to the final version!

Hi Fish!
We just released an all ages version of Faulty Apprentice!
Hope you dig it! https://dinmoney.itch.io/faulty

Hey, thanks for letting me know mate! I'll check it out!

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?

Hey thanks! No release date as of now, just starting to sink our teeth into the Faulty Apprentice development. For news and updates please follow us on twitter @AGLstudioArt or to be a part of the process by supporting on Patreon! Cheers! -din

does the instructors have names?


They do, but getting them to tell you is whole other matter XD

Thanks for playing!!

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!!

Thank you for the reply! is there a best place, perhaps Twitter, to follow news of a potential Android version?

Yes! We just made a twitter for the Faulty Apprentice @PlayFaulty and we also have our studio twitter @AGLstudioArt for news on all our games and what not. Cheers!

Hello, friends! I wonder - how to contact developers team by email?

Hello Pinkerator! You can reach us at AGLstudioArt@gmail.com

Cheers

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!! (=
