The Tomato welcomes you!
Altarune is a harem-building adventure and training RPG. It follows the hero Rae, a human who upon meeting Nekome, a mysterious Nekomimi, finds himself getting caught up in a quest to help save the kingdom of Altarune.
Along the way Rae will be meeting various girls to add to his harem. These girls will be able to explore new dungeons, be interacted with and trained in various ways.
What kind of game is it?
Dungeoneering is an adventure mode reminiscent of typical action RPGs. Heavily inspired by EasyGameStation's Recettear, this mode features procedurally generated dungeons for you to explore in a top-down view. Taking control of your harem member of choice you will encounter various enemies, treasures and hidden areas. Encounters here can have significant effects on the chosen girl's personality, likes, and dislikes.
HQ Building is exactly what it sounds like - a base-building mode where you can fully customize your guild's HQ. You can add furniture and decorate using a grid-based approach. You will be able to seat your harem members on chairs or couches, lie them down on beds, put them in various contraptions, and make them play with whatever entertainment you provide them with.
Play Mode is where you interact with your harem members in a close-up view. You are able to talk to them, praise or discipline them, (un)dress them, and play with them using a wide assortment of tools and collectable toys.
While Altarune is an 18+ erotic video game, production will be approached from a "game first" development standpoint. The first and foremost goal of this project is to create an entertaining and high-quality game with solid mechanics. Rather than trying to force a sexual angle onto every single step along the way, the game will instead use erotic elements where they fit.
That said, there is plenty of hentai content in the works, and even in the game already. This will include:
- Intractable furniture, including:
- Wooden Horses
- Fucking machines
- A dedicated Play Mode featuring all sorts of tools and toys, such as:
- Sex in various positions
- A dedicated Play Mode for certain enemies encountered while Dungeoneering, where you take control of the monster and get access to monster-specific tools and actions.
- Outfits and accessories.
- CG artwork collected by reaching various points in the story as well as dedicated mini-games.

What do you need money for?
While I can do most of these things myself (let's be honest here, a male tomato can't exactly voice a female catgirl very well), hiring people to do these specific things will result in both faster development time and much higher quality results.
What do I get in return?
Of course there are more direct rewards as well. As a subscriber you will be able to get access to subscriber-only channels the Discord server, exclusive sneak previews and updates, early access to devlogs relating to the game's design, and early test builds.
In the future I would like to add rewards like cinematic character renders and alternative CGs, as well as in-game rewards like exclusive toys and outfits also.
