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!

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!

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!

Time to finish this mother up! I can't wait for the full game! Dinmoney! Get on it! Mwhahahaha!

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

(+1)

Love 'em! Can't wait for the full game, man!

Coming soon! =

Awesome project. Rated with 5 stars.

Glad you like the game so far! Thank you for the rating! (

(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! (=

Big fan of your art and style. I became a Patreon supporter the other day and can't wait for the full thing to come out. Here is the first video for our lets play of it as well.

https://youtu.be/MZfW3CZo6fA

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

(Edited 1 time)

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.

Hey Fellowplayer!

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 (=
