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

Faulty Apprentice is an interactive visual novel with elements of fantasy and lighthearted fun. 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!

- Open Castle! You are free to go wherever you want, talk to who ever you want, anytime you want. The castle is alive and buzzing, explore at your own pace.

- 4 unique relationship paths! Each of the Instructors has their own mini games and personality quirks. Depending on who you spend time with will determine their role in the final battle.

- Good vs. Evil! Not everyone at the castle has good intentions. Some may be obvious, others may surprise you; depending on your actions who knows what could happen.

- Hand painted artwork! Enjoy beautiful character sprites, key story illustrations and animated backgrounds.

- Apprenticeship! Customize your apprentice and watch him grow as you move towards the final battle.

- Small apprentice in a big world! There are over 19 characters to meet, and over 15 locations to explore.

openworld? oh... it's text...

4 unique relationship paths?! nevermind, it's even more text...

good vs evil? seems like more of the same thing.

beautifully handpainted anime clichés for your weeaboo needs

this game even has customization features that changes the texts! but it's still a bunch of text

19 uninteresting characters, each with their own dialogues for you to gouge your eyeballs out from all that intensive reading

>no sex

what is the point of making a VN anymore?
