Leap of Faith - Chapter 1-4

Having spent 2 years wondering why your girlfriend left your seemingly perfect relationship out of the blue, you finally decide to move forward. And while you're opening your eyes to the world, it seems to be opening it's eyes to you as well. 

Before long you've connected with 6 different girls, all with their own stories to tell. From that girl you save from a horrible fate, to the superstar pop singer - even the returning ex. girlfriend. This is the story about your journey together. Which, through choices and opportunities, will lead you down a path you never could have imagined.

Leap of Faith - Chapter 8 Trailer

Features

Leap of Faith consists of over 12,500 static renders and 85.000 animated frames full HD - 1920x1080 resolution, with about 69.000 lines of source and dialogue, using RenPy as engine, accompanied by a fully licensed soundtrack.

In addition to the normal VN choice menus, you will have to interact with your phone as a tool to explore opportunities, or even discover them. Leap of Faith does not intend to offer you every experience in it by advancing through dialogue alone.

Full game removal from Itch - Announcement!

Due to circumstances outside my control, I've had to remove the full game from Itch. You can still play chapters 1-4 as a demo, but you will have to drop by my Patreon or look it up on Steam for the full game.

If you bought Leap of Faith through Itch earlier and need to access the full download again, drop by my Discord and drop me a message.

didn't even finish the demo before deciding to buy it. going to need to do a lot of new games but Cece my mine girl for the first one

(+2)(-2)

This - 

No words. 


I thought Eternium was one of th best AVN's around... but... then i played this.

The animations may not be as Hihh-RES, and the story may ebb and flow.. but the message... whats really going on....

This aint about sex, man.... or the girls....

This is an AVN with a message... and a story with a meaning behind it.

And Dev... if the intermission in *that* chapter was about you and something you went through...

I'm sorry you had to experience it. I'm sorry it had to happen.

But if it is your story...

She would be proud.  

I know I am.

I'm an writer myself... but nothing has made me feel like this story did. 

Too many write stories of sunshine and rainbows... and forget or overlook the fact that pain..heartbreak... they help us grow.

Even I did.

But you reminded me...showed me what was missing from my own work.

And I am grateful that you took the time to write this. To share this with us.

(+2)

You sold this game so hard for me.

Plus, seeing that trailer... made me overlook the fact that I came here for an entirely different reason, but stayed for something more.   

Really going into it with a high expectation now.

Not all me, man. If the Dev hadnt written it... we all would have missed out.... But glad my review could help sway another to try it out. Hope you enjoy it !

It's an interesting concept, with a ton of potential, all except for the writing. The writing needs to get thrown onto life support desperately. No I'm not trying to take a 'dump' on whoever is responsible for the written story. I'm just saying, the grammar and phrasing, need to be elevated to a level above 6th grade. Especially if you're going to be asking money for this.

Again, I'm not trying to be insulting or anything of the sort. It's a strong effort. Having dabbled in Python, Perl and etc myself, I have a good idea of the work and time required to put one of these stories together, it's not such a simple task even for seasoned programmers, just methodical and mentally exhausting. Specially if you're putting a story together on your own (I don't know if that's the case here or not). So I can easily praise the technical aspect of the work. Just that yeh, even on the more central characters of the story, the writing and phrasing left alot to be desired. 

Bottom line, I still managed to enjoy it. I hope my criticism is taken positively. I still would like to say thank you for the entertainment and I hope my comment will bare fruit in perhaps your next VN.

Peace.

Fmj.


*edit*

Forgot to mention I've only played the first 4 chapters so far. But for encouragement, I will head out to Steam and grab the entire work anyhow and see if perhaps I was just blabbering out of my a**.  ;)

After all, I'm still curious to see which direction the story is intended to take. Also after my above 'critique', I can now move into it with a less critical eye.


*Final edit*

So, finally I've finished the second half of the game, and indeed the writing improves decently in chapters 5-8. I'm happy I got the full VN. No regrets!

 As far as the game story itself is concerned, I give this game a 4/5 stars. I like the characters, the different story plots. But MOST of all, I really respect the fact that a strong amount of restraint was exhibited where the lewd scenes are concerned. Not over done and not done in a way that ruins the uniqueness of the story.  Also, I really loved the Cameos presented, IE: Jaye from "Chasing sunsets" and some others I forget. And I noticed the same in CS referring to when Jaye gets to meet Lexi, very cool!

I just register to putt a comment.
I was just searching for adult game and I found in Leap of Feaith a true masterpiece.
Not only graphics but story is do powerfull.

I laughed, I cried (never happened before), I still think about.

Thanks a lot for that, It was frankly one of the most intense experience I had those last years with playing video game.

Merci.

(1 edit)

It's a fun story with a sharp sense of humor. Great technical skills are put on display here, coupled with some very good story-telling techniques. The characters are all consistent and believable and the few plot holes are easily overlooked (An adult government agent working undercover while having sexual relations with a minor... would definitely be frowned upon). The author was a bit heavy-handed and preachy in regard to same-sex relationship themes and tended to wield the "small-town, traditional, conservative bigots" trope like a war mace, but otherwise, the story is solid and extremely thought-provoking. Thanks for the great read!

(-2)

Where do I get complete version? I've downloaded chapter 1-4 and can't download anything else or it's only for patreon and that bullshit?

Its on steam Josh.

(+4)

What an amazing game. Please if you are unsure just try it and thank me later. 

Sad about the people here just looking for a quick fix. This game is just so much more.

The story is just one of the best I've read in a long time, not just for an adult VN but in all medias. Absolute great work!

(-10)

Boring drama game

(+7)

Not as boring as your generic comment.

(+1)

Lmao that's a good one. 

removal why size issue???

android version ????

/sigh Played this game again and as always loved it but now that you have lost some of the songs it is quite sad. Honestly if you could not use the original then would have been nice for you to add a substitute for them.

The ride in the limo is just silent and cold and lexi singing at her piano during the romance just some generic music on loop the whole scene. Please if you ever feel up to it please patch in some other music for the locations where songs where lost.

Or at least take this as advice for the next game you make if you do, if something cant be used please substitute with something fitting that can be.

What software are you using to make the character models? I've been thinking of dabbling in Renpy and I really like how this game looks.

as an avid player of adult games, it looks like he is using DAZ. other alternatives are Honeyselect or Koikatsu to model characters. 

(+1)

Almost certainly Daz. In the scene where the MC visits his father, Sea's computer displays a Daz UI interface with an unrendered version of the scene loaded. Fun little "breaking the fourth wall" easter egg.

(+3)

I have played many AVN's, I enjoy the story's mostly although the lewd's are fun as well. However this is by far the best one I've played to this point, I've actually played through all the character paths and enjoyed them all, although I enjoyed the Cece's and Lexi endings the most. I highly recommend this game. I sincerely hope the dev's make an other game just as good. 

(+5)

This game... came looking for copper, found gold. For some reason, it just hits close to home, maybe because of my past... doesn't matter - the Cece path is incredible, it's funny, it's hot and it's so full of tears (fuck it, I am allowed to cry about stuff as well)... so sorry to the Dev for what he had to go through, you're not alone mate, thank you so much for writing this story.. incredible

(+1)

Hello good people.

I play this game for the first time - and I love it.

But I have to know: Does Linda work as a prostitute?

I think, I could not play the game any further if she would. It would ruin the game for me.

There is this scene were she comes home. Get off her clothes and you can see, shes wearing lingerie and she says something like: Thats a hard way to earn a buck. Or something like this.

I know Im asking for a spoiler, but could anyone tell me?

Greez

Just no.

Yes. (Now you have to play and find out...;) :)))

(+1)

Is there a 'Harem' path in this game?  I love all the chars, finding it real hard to choose between any one of them - I want them all! lol

No.

(+3)(-1)

The game is a true masterpiece.

(+2)

Played the demo yesterday, bought it on steam today. This is what a mature VN game can acomplish. got here from Artemis.

(+1)

Both games are super polished. Which is great for the games, themselves, but it kind of ruins the others, lol, since they raise the bar so much.

(1 edit)

You have no idea how much I love this game, I don't want to divulge much but I was born in Scotland, so hearing Auld Lang syne play during the game astonished me, more than a few tears were shed but after finishing the game I truly believe that this is the pinnacle of story telling, so thank you for sharing your vision with the world

(1 edit)

In my country Leap of Faith doesnt exist on Steam or isnt allowed to be on steam wher else can i buy it? Or is there anywhere else i can buy the game? Preferably with Paypal.

(+2)

You asked for a measly $5 Drifty, so I paid it, but this game turned out to be one of the best games I had played, the only tiniest complaint was too much geared toward the Lexi ending and Cece ending.... But please somehow get Itch to leave the "pay extra" up, and allow previous purchasers access to it, Because I have no ability as a purchaser to do anything. If I click on download, it just allows me to download straight away, as I have purchased it, so no ability to see the page with the $5 and pay more tabs!

You could support them for a month on patreon or buy the game on Steam if you want to send more money their way.

(1 edit)

But I shouldn't have to go that way. But thanks, I did think of that. Buying it on Seam is a better idea, and I may do that, but I know what % steam keeps, I am hoping Itch keeps less, hence my request. If Book III is available on Itch, I could pay extra for that, but I presume that will be quite a while...

(+2)

The story moved my heart. I laughed, I cried, and then I cried some more. What an amazing journey!

(+2)

This was a fun game. I would highly recommend it. Please tip the author.

(+2)

Got to say Cece's story hit home hard. Been through similar situation and its was handled brilliantly. Not often to writers get that topic, relationship and feelings so accurate. Brilliant hats off to you. 

(-1)

ima need that android download 馃憖馃憖馃憖馃憖

Why is the game not working on joiplay...someone?!

Will there be an android port

(+1)

Absolutely loved the game. And love it, I still have a few endings to go through. Thank you so much for making it, it's beautiful, and you do tell stories well.

See you in your next game!

Hey dev i absolutely love your work

But doc it's a very personal question,you don't have to answer you don't have to say any thing if you don't want,i m just curious and truly wants to know this but if you don't want to answer no need 

THis is too hard to ask even for me since i fear for worse but i will still,did your daughter cece got the good life like in avn or something 馃様馃様 sad 馃槶馃槶 happened,you don't have to say i know i asked something horrible just wanted to wish her a good life however she is,wherever she is.

(1 edit)

can any one explain the end scene on the boat and the old man in the park at the  end?

(+1)

It is probably your Grandfather who is the old man in the park. Your Father probably pulled some strings to allow him to have 15 minutes with you. In the background you see a man, he is Marvin, Steph's partner at Homeland, after the conversation, you see Marvin putting him in the police security van.

As to the boat, I don't know what you mean? If you could explain more, I may be able to help.

the boat is probably his next game. The shows must go on.

No, I think he means Lexi's boat, which is in the game, but I don't understand what he means by end scene on the boat.

Nah man he is talking about a ship that's seen in one of the ending,that's not Lexi boat he is talking about which mc travelled in wo 4 it's a different one

Never seen that. Do I have to go for a certain girl to see it?

(1 edit)

I'm assuming when you say 'end scene on the boat' you're talking about the after credits scene with Kevin, Chris, and James on the yacht. 

 Fairly certain it's just a nod to his next big project and was a fun way to display his new logo.  At least in the version I played after the scene showing the three of them on the yacht it showed the trailer for his next project.  I thought he made a pretty good effort to make it clear that's what all that was about.  Really just a nifty way to get that trailer out to folks who aren't following him here or elsewhere. 

 Hope that helps buddy.

spoiler ish so dont read if not played

first drifty well done and this hit home and the bit with the in loving memory bit was really hard hitting so sad to read and you did just that wrote a story.

second with cece i was good-ish at the first attempt because i thought well plot armor or so i thought. did not see the second one and was not ready for it or for it really to be dark. not something i should have continued even when warned but i was curios with what was next. it really fucked me up in head space especially right now after just losing a close family member to their demons couple weeks ago and kinda related to holly in this. however i actually decided to power on anyway. little rough but actually glad it did was a nice first go ending (Cece route). i gotta say 10/10 great story and the depiction of how one moment everything seems fine, smiles, laughs, and fun then bam their gone. its to spot on and why it made it super rough other then that i ended up far more engrossed in story and characters then most other vn's. honestly if you make this it into a book and ill read it 1000%

i only have one down for this and a minor thing really. i really hate that even with linda route cece always leaves on that bus if didnt chose her. its to sad. 

long winded thing and sorry but had to say it.

(1 edit)

馃憤馃徎 why the fuck we can't keep her as a friend? Why she has to be so good 馃槉 馃槉 who knew what to do for mc and when she knew now mc is happy she leave him not to make him sad but to make someone else life happy,she only remain with mc in her route because then only happiness of mc is her and she wants to make him and everyone  happy,she feels like a character that changes your life for best, sometimes we notice these people, sometimes we don't, sometimes we remember them, sometimes we forget them,but CeCe is one of the girl in the world who lives for others.I would have loved if in any other route she get some type of happiness in her life,but stil happy that dev showed us real life

(1 edit)

Steph is My Fav Girl.. ( I believe in true love ..)... Sadly the ending did not go How I wanted .....So many missing Storys that hasnt even Finished..
Ch8 is waaaaaaay to Short!...( cece and Lexi are only two that are finished  WTF .. What about other girls )
some of stories doesnt even make any sense.... I am not try to be rude Just being honest here.... Anyways its okay story but Need More work  with others girls

(1 edit)

Maybe spoilers:)



Well buddy if you believe in true love go for Linda,mc first love was her not Steph and i m sorry to say but i hate Steph,for her fucking stupid and nonsense story which felt like a lie,and she was still hiding so i don't trust her,and never trust the guys who leaves you for whatever then come with their stupid ass story like Steph,you know na story mc was depressed for two fucking yrs because of that bitch,he only got low lvl jobs because of her stupid not able to do good job as some sort of secret agent (is this some nepotism who give 18 yr old girl job as secret agent and let her work even after wasting two yrs in paid salary for doing nothing),and then the first meeting was my end for her,who the fuck not slut does that what she did in first meeting?like fucking and then throwing mc when her so called 'husband' comes,her whole story is just construction of her words nothing proven it could all be a lie,with her instead of love felt like a fling and she runway in next scene after you get together everytime fucking annoying,and even after throwing up, playing her route by skipping everything to just find something good like any romantic scene in her path,only thing i got is steph getting jealous when mc clicked photo with a girl,great a Fucking slut cheating on her husband gets jealous for this and who says she doesn't fuck around like whore? Fucking No one there to confirm her sorrow(stupid unrealistic story).

The main ingame screen mentions something about a Walkthrough, how do I access that?

Seems to be on Steam but not Itch.io at this moment.

The Walkthrough DLC can be found on the Steam version, or the $10 Patreon Tier for Drifty's Patreon, according to the Dev.

I've just finished the Steam edition and wanted to say that i very much enjoyed this journey with all its ups and downs. It was an awesome story. I'm very curious what your next project (?) will be.

See the "New Game" development log above ...

Go all the way through the end credits, and you'll see the trailer (if you didn't already).  :)

I downloaded cp 1-4 and extracted the files and went to joiplay and did like usual but the game just froze....am i doing something wrong??

(2 edits) (+1)

I just played through the first 4 chapters to get a taster of the game and all i can say is this is an absolutely amazing game with comedy, romance, gut wrenching scenes at times that make me just wanna give em all a hug. You've done an amazing job with this game and I will most definitely playing the rest of this game. 

Update: I just finished the chapter 6 for Cece and that shit destroyed me, I hate and love how this game makes me feel. Its written so damn good that this is the second visual novel to make me tear up. You have outdone yourself 

Well I just finished Chapter 8 and with that teaser for Euphoria ima have to check it out. Once again amazing work on this game.

Played ep 1-6 on joiplay. Redownloaded everything for 7-8 and it wont even start.. is this by design ?

Have really been drawn into this game, well-produced and illustrated; I especially enjoyed the music, so am disappointed that on downloading the final chapters and unzipping them into my game folder it all runs perfectly, except silent,  - no sound at all. Can I correct this?

Unfortunately, you can't patch the final release with any earlier release.

Download all three files and patch them like usual and the music will be there.

Hey thanks

(1 edit)

    So I have to download chapers 1-4, 5-6 and 7-8 and combine them?

I just bought the final two chapters and finished the Lexi run first. Dang, the story, the feels, the whole nine yards. Really excellent work on this and I can't wait to see whatever project you have next. I'm going for a Cece run now. Thank you.

Just finished the game for the first time. I went for Lexi, and the story was SO interesting! I was sad to see Euphoria has been cancelled, so please tell me you are working on another game? You are a brilliant storyteller!!!

Also, given how good this game is, put all the chapters into one big file, and put it on Steam. I think it would sell like crazy! At the moment it seems silly that to replay the game, I have to delete the install folder and re-download chapters 1-4, etc!

1. Thanks.
2. Cancelled?
3. It was released on Steam, on February 11th. :)

(1 edit)

On Itch.io Euphoria is shown as cancelled, there was a trailer for it at the end of Leap of Faith. It is not on Steam, though there is a puzzle game called Euphoria.

Leap of Faith being on Steam (which I just checked) means I must be going blind. So now I can't complain that I have the Itch.io version and need to 1-4 then 5-6 then 7-8! 

Although it is 拢8.79 on Steam and $5 on here, so It does mean A) There is another reason for not complaining, and B), I should add a couple of dollars to my purchase, given how much I enjoyed the game, and how by choosing a different girl, I can see new scenes!

Can't add a couple of dollars, as my download purchase page doesn't allow for additional payment, and obviously the download page expects $5 or more, so won't take $2. I could pay $5 but then I would just own 2 copies of the game, or maybe even Itch would remind me I already have purchased the game. For any dev that has a "don't have to pay anything", there should be a way of leaving an after purchase "tip". If there is such a thing, let me know.

(+1)

SPOILERS AHEAD

So wait, what the hell happened in the post-credits scene on the boat? I'm confused

Same.

(+1)

its almost like end of world shit.. or your ass got drone striked maybe because that call steph gets at the ritz when she takes the call (if you dont bring her with) is homeland saying to watch you to protect you so maybe.  maybe its playing in to euphoria (the next game he's making) in some way. i have no idea but i wanna know too.

So anyways. Hopefully someone can shed some light on this at some point.

(+1)

it kinda just looks like driftys logo colors lighting up their faces the more you look at because it then it moves to the logo and trailer for U4ia.

That might be the case. I was hoping it would be something more substantial ;)
