A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

This release contains the first four chapters of the game. These chapters are massive by visual novel standards typically an hour to an hour and a half for each chapter, so expect about 4 to 5 hours worth of content on this release.

Chapters 5 and 6 have been released on patreon. The patreon also has rewards such as custom renders and voting polls for extra content, and my previous game Depraved Awakening which is fully complete and also available on steam.


  • Chapters 1 through 4 of the current game.
  • 2800 detailed renders at 1920 by 1080 resolution.
  • 134 full 1920 by 1080 animations that run at 30 fps. These are in both lewd and non lewd scenes to help immerse you in the world.
  • A fully licensed soundtrack including 26 songs by artists such as Titan Slayer and We Are Astronauts.
  • Hours of current gameplay with replayability.
  • Scene replay theater.
  • Glossary of terms that expand the lore of the game.


  • The game plays as a visual novel. Much like a choose your own adventure book.
  • Every choice has impact. Never in the game will a choice come up that does not have some impact further down the line. There are no wrong answers. So, you can play the game how you wish, and see where things turn out.
  • Each girl in the game will relate to you differently on how you approach them. They have a score and a lust value. Depending on the girl these can open up new scenes and options in said scenes.
  • You have a hidden stat that represents your anger. This can come into play in many areas of the game. Not only changing dialogue but how you react in certain situations.
  • There are bonus images that are hidden throughout the game that you can find when a notification pops up explaining that a clue can be found. These are not needed for the game but are a nice extra for you to hunt down.
  • After a lewd scene has completed it will be added to your replay theater that you can access again from the main menu.

About City of Broken Dreamers

You play as a Ghost, a bounty hunter for hire. Ghosts often have the backing of the rich and powerful and are thus almost immune to the law. Among Ghosts, you are considered one of the best, but behind that lies a man running from his troubled past. Your next mark is a young girl with a hidden, and troubling secret. And when you face her, you’ll face your demons as well. You will meet a large cast of characters, both allies and enemies. How you interact with them will be up to you. Do you keep it professional? Ditch them? Or take them up on a night of hot, steamy, -- well, you get the point.

Are you looking for a visual novel with a bit more edge? Where story, and characters come first? A world with a thick backstory? This will all play out in a “City of Broken Dreamers”. The game is dark, it is fun, it is sexy, but most importantly it is engaging. Every choice you make will have an impact but there is no wrong choice. Only what you decide. Create your own path in the dark streets of Los Angeles.

Do note that this is an adult game so expect plenty of very lewd content. It can be skipped or passed by and you can still have an enjoyable experience but please be aware of that before buying.

Any idea when the next Steam update will be?

Anyone know when the next update is coming out? .. I've played until episode 8 or 7 I think, I'm not sure but I know it was the most recent update,but  even that was a while back 


Honestly more intriguing than most triple A games

(1 edit) (+3)

this game is simply beautiful, Gods is literally an interactive movie and I'm not talking about the trash of movies of these times, but the classic and raw. 

a masterpiece.


I love it!

This is a great game. The animation is amazing and the story is really solid. There is value in replay-ability which makes the game outstanding. So far I'm hooked with the narrative and I just cant wait to see more content. 

Really looking forward to what is coming. I am feeling like buying the game, but I don't really see any updates here and I was wondering if the devs are still uploading anything to itch.io. Also, if I buy the game here and they update it, will i get the update or just the version I paid for? I don't really like steam and if anyone can let me know I would really appreciate it. 

bro use this site f95zone.to

just make a free account and enjoy latest versions daily.


are you planning on releasing chapters 5 and 6 on itch.io and if so when?


I can't find the Game on Steam. :'(


Are you living in Germany? Yes? Then congratulations, all adult games on Steam are now permanently locked away from you because of german pornography laws and Valve's lazyness. -_-

get  a vpn

Ja leider, hab das Spiel Gott sei Dank schon vor der Sperrung bei Steam erworben. Kann nur hoffen das Valve da mal was macht.

(1 edit)

Da kann er leider nix machen. Wenn es solche art von games sind dann wird es ausnahmslos von Deutschland gesperrt sein.

Needs update for mobile version if possible other then that awesome game


Can we get an Android version?

great game ofc, but does anyone know how to unlock the final Victoria scene? i've gotten all the rest but idk how to get that one

nope but do u know the name of the song that is played at the sky lounge where u have drinks with victoria ?


Whats The Name Of The Song At The Sky Lounge The Place Where You Have Drinks With Victoria Anyone Know :(

Can't really play the game on pc... Will the game be release on Android device?


I know this was months ago, and you may never see this. But just in case someone else does: this seems playable on Android using JoiPlay plus the Ren'py plugin (available in the Play Store). Haven't played all the way through (just started, really), so there could be an incompatibility I just haven't encountered. 

But the most common failure modes I've encountered with Ren'py games on JoiPlay don't seem to be a problem: the game starts, the menus are navigable, and text entry doesn't break it.

Just something to chew on if you really wanna try this game.

I simply just download the game, installed it and it worked perfectly on my Android like any other game would .. So why's everyone finding it so hard to get an android version 

I think they're looking for a direct port, because it's easy to just install an apk. I used to do the same, but I've kinda just switched to JoiPlay altogether, because there is a better repertoire of games and in many cases it's as stable or better than the android port.

And there are games, like harem hotel for instance, which are simply too big to install as an apk.

I dunno, man. I dunno. 

I get what you saying tho I'm not sure if you familiar with Dark Assassin, but all their android ports works perfectly fine.. Well at least the once I've played, can't speak about the ones I didn't obviously.. But yeah it works without any problem plus the website uploads new VNs everyday.. Like the moment an update gets released DA releases an Android port of that update... Also something to mention is that DA has a whole library of android ports, over a hundred I'd say


I see that "Book One" Was released on Steam. What difference if any are there to what Itch.io has ? If there is a difference is book 1 coming to Itch.io ?


Book One is chapters 1-7.  This Itch.io version is chapters 1.-4.


Thank you for the clarification. Hopefully Book One comes to Itch.io.

Whats it called on Steam? I cant find it.

Graphics, sets and atmosphere are amazing! very well done. I'm not a huge fan of these types of games but this one has a nice appeal and made me get interested in what was about the happen.  Very well done! I do really wonder how and where you got all the good assets and 3D models.

I have an  idea for a game where i would need a few 3D modelled girls like this for especially with different outfits. How did you get these?

I'm currently also making a sexy game, a latex fetish/ bondage picture solitaire game.  https://guldor.itch.io/latex-fetish-solitair


sorry i don't know how to Censor Potential Spoilers.

hey i don't know if this is a bug but during Chapter 3 i think when you go to meet a contact at "Stairway to Heaven" during the Scene with Venus after selecting the slut mode Venus's Name changes to "Victoria" for 1 Render/Dialogue sentence, i'll share below screenshot's of what i mean since Your Discord is Exclusive to Patron and i have no other way to report bugs.

as i was saying, i don't think the "Victoria" name drop was intentional unless she Hacked Venus into Unlocking the full service because she is watching the MC at that current moment and the MC is unaware?

Intentional ;)

I'm Loving this game so far... 2 things however...

1. do you plan to add sounds effects for the sex scenes like for spanking or the wet sounds from penetration, BTW the soundtrack and Animations are really great especially when it comes to the Elasticity of the Skin and Vaginal/anal area's

2. it's your game and i'm loving it so far but please please tell me that has a somewhat Harem ending, like at the end of the game all the girls are in a relationship with you happily because i don't think i can choose any of them over another, having to pick just  or 2 girls would literally kill me bro... there is way to much work put into these character and story not to Allow the MC to Happily be with them all at once in a happy ending. PLEASE DON'T Break our Hearts mate.

I only now saw how dedicated Philly is to getting people to be Patrons cause DAMN they're WAY ahead of us here in Itch with the game - up to episode 7 already as of 4 days short of a month ago! Sheesh! Now I am very curious to see just how long it is until they feel it's been a patron exclusive long enough to warrant giving us down here access to episode 5 hahaha. Well, go get yours Philly! We'll uh.... be waiting eagerly down here for the scraps and crumbs lmao


yeah i totally understand the reasons for having patron though unfortunately many like myself can't really afford to back anyone when living fortnight to fortnight...i wish it was just a 1 month wait time for public release like most other games.  

Honestly I agree with you 100% there on that front. But in the end, it's a ridiculously time consuming and expensive process to make games on your own, especially with such a quality set of graphics and some of the animations even. That stuff is endlessly more intensive on computers than most people realize, that's for sure. So I totally understand why he's so heavily bias to his patrons.

But... man, again, I agree with you so damn much haha. It feels like it's been abandoned down here in hand-me-down town! Kinda wish they'd give a little more appreciation for those of us who can't afford to pay for the games/patron with the other costs they've got to cover in life. Even more so with 'rona going around, things got endlessly more tight for us budgetarily. I guess you could say I'm conflicted with my feelings and perception on it. haha.

I have digressed enough for a thousand children to die if this was their reading assignments though so, hope you have a great day/night!


Well I'm no expert or game developer but if you look at the patron I imagine he has enough to work in the game full time and could maybe afford to do the whole "One month late for public release" thing like most Devs do... I don't want to sound rude it he does have Both  Android version, Discord and up to 7 chapters Locked behind Patron... The reason I dislike this is because I feel like we are disconnected from the game, we can't really report bugs or get any news and updates like others, I always felt patron was more for those who like custom renders and other things similar to that but doing it this way feels like he's taken away free advertisements if that make sense, I feel like more could be accomplished if he was going down the same route others devs do with the way they run Patron... I don't think I've seen much or any reply from the Dev on this site either so it does feel abandoned unless your a Patron member

Well, Book One, containing chapter 1-7, just released on steam for about 8$/€, so there probably won't be any more free releases.


Really? huh. You'd think he'd tell us over here on itch if he decided to begin charging for the game. Well, I guess we'll all have to wait and see if he's going to let us know or not.

Выглядит чувственно

i hope you plan/are making more, cause i love this so much. the story and world are so good id read without the sex but ill take the sex anyday cause its as good as the story. like if hollywood was as good at writing as this...oh boy. tho please dont feel pressured, take your time and such :3


Dumb Question: How many chapters is this game gonna be? I still haven't played it yet and I'm waiting on it to be finished before I do play it. I know I won't be disappointed, because it already looks awesome and I played your last game Depraved Awakening and was blown away by it.

Are there possibly any plans to release an Android version, I myself don't care for any compression of any sort as I have an abundance of storage, I can't speak for others but this game definitely looks interesting and unfortunately I only have a laptop and no comfortable way to use the laptop whilst playing this kinda game :) I definitely do hope to see an Android version down the line

The beginning of this game was so polished that I joined the Patreon before I even finished chapter 1.  I will report back when I get farther along!

hey can u share this logo or its font? im going to create some steam grids for steamgriddb.com 

Beautiful game!  Please put the final version up for sale here when it's done!  I'd be much more likely to buy it here than steam or patreon.

can we have the mega link for this? this download link now is a bit unstable and I tried three times to download

Very well written and produced!  I truely enjoyed my time with the game looking foreward to seeing more as it devolops

I really love this game, i've replayed the chapters few times to see different outcomes. When will the next chapter come out? I really hope its soon, i got addicted to the game and really wanna see how the story plays out 😀

Phenomenal game. The renders for the 'scenes' are absolutely gorgeous, and the story is engaging (which is a rare thing for this sub-genre of VN. In fact, I have one render in particular from the 2nd Chandra encounter as my wallpaper now. I would like to know the name and artist of the specific song that plays during that scene.

If you are referring to the scene back at your apartment that song is licensed from Professor Kliq and is called Sacreligious.

That is indeed it! Thank you for the prompt feed back. That particular scene is my favorite in the whole project. From the song to the reders, and the narrative, you guys nailed it 110% on that scene!


Great story and concept, awesome graphics. My favourite of these types of games by far.

Where is the new update ?? Can't waitanother scene with Cleopatra xD 


Masterpiece !  I hope one day, i'll see this game on steam. Thus, more people can see how  good is this game.

Отличная игра

I don't know where to start. The game is damn great. The story, the graphics and literally everything about this game is amazing. The developers nailed it. Damn👍. Please provide us with the next chapters because can't wait to see the ending.

P.S.- also "Depraved Awakening" is also damn great.

where can you download depraved awakening from? Is it free to play?

Great game so far, loving the graphics. I am confused about the secret notifications. The tutorial says that when a hint dialogue pops up, to mouse over the area that it showed up at and new information will be added to your info tab. I got the first one when visiting Ellen in 'Afterlife' however I can not find anything anywhere. I scrolled over where the pop up was and everywhere else but nothing is added to my info tab, I even clicked on some things but that just advances the dialogue/scene.

If you found it it will be in the images tab. Finding those reveals custom bonus renders. It is just a fun thing to get on the side. Not a requirement by any means.

Yeah I figured if out on the second third ones then went back to get the third but I haven't tried to go find the first. I do like that they stay in there even if you load a different save that is past the secret

Brilliant story.  Loved every second of it & hope for it to expand even more.  


I donated to buy the game..  download keeps bombing out though.. any suggestions?

Bravo.  Amazing work so far.  Very minor typos in a couple of places, but looking great.

Thank you. I just did an update which may have some of those minor typos fixed. Each update I release sometimes players find some older typos and I am always sure to address them for each following release.

Must find update...... Feed me Philly..... I mean, um, yeah.  Cool.  Thanks.

please add 🐧 icon  to (Windows), it contains native game.

Done! Thank you.
