The city is full of crime and our hero by any means must survive here. He will have to ask for money from passers-by, sometimes steal money in order to survive in these harsh conditions. From the first minutes of the game you will immediately be given a unique task. You have to quickly perform tasks, move to locations and talk to the NPC, and at the same time monitor your hunger indicator and health. You will have to regularly visit grocery stores. So you always need to take care that in your pocket was enough money for food. By completing missions, you earn reputation and money. Become an authoritative Gopnik in the city and win the hearts of young priestesses.
Let me introduce myself, I'm a mugger, a thief. Do not rush to turn away from me his "Holy" face. Every one of you could be in my place. Sometimes there are circumstances that force a man of good character to become a criminal. It's not happening of its own free will. Almost Dostoevsky – "do You understand, my dear sir, what it means when there is nowhere else to go?»

I had to leave my old place, leave a high-paying job to get lost in the big city. I didn't run from trial. My escape was the only way I thought I could stay alive. I happened to witness a crime. What, let me keep silent. But believe me, these people weren't going to let me live.
Once in a strange city without means of livelihood, I myself, ironically, was on a criminal road, as an honest way to survive I failed: neither money nor documents I had. Do not judge strictly "honest" Gopnik. Although unlikely for my sins I will be justified in an earthly court. I already punished myself when I took the criminal path.

The Fate of the Bully
In Brief
The Fate of the Bully is an early access side scrolling isometric view point life survival simulation. You can see a video of game play via the Steam store HERE (40% off until 6th Oct now £1.01). We are given a free standing version of the game, but the Steam version being in early access will possibly include additional content as it draws near to its full release in about 4 months time. the developers say the number of NPC's will be increased from the present six to at least ten or more as well as other additional content...

The Game:
Only played the game enough to take some screen captures. So far looks like a fun game. There are some issues with the language even when you select English by clicking on the flag that appears in the top right of the screen when you first boot up the game. Basically a lot of the text that appears is often in Russian interspersed with English. Also the main menu that only includes the Play and language button looks very blurred. apart from those issues, everything else works fine.

The game window opens in a window by default. to change to full screen click on the full screen button in the top right of the window. When you reboot the game it always reverts to the window mode. On the right side of the game screen are three icons, a question mark that brings up the quests you have to complete in that part of the game. There is a button on the right side that was in Russian, when clicked it tells you whether or not you have met the conditions of the quest. on the bottom left is the number of quests you have to complete to meet the conditions. Early in the game this will probably just be one. As you walk to the right you will eventually come to one, two or more circles with arrows pointing up or down. These indicate whether you have completed the quests/tasks that you have been given. I haven’t played the game long enough yet, but i think if the arrow is pointing down the conditions haven’t been met, pointing up indicates they have. The more arrows you see the more conditions require completing.
There are several NPC’s that walk around randomly. You can either ask for money or steal from them. Depending who you do this to and who is around you may lose reputation. There are other notifications but so far they have always been in Russian. Some shops you can access a menu by clicking on the shop and it will show you icons representing various items such as food and health etc. Other shops sell weapons such as knives and baseball bats. I presume later in the game more weapons will be unlocked. The game was release don Steam two months ago and has positive reviews which you can see HERE

Game play Videos:
You can see several videos of game play HERE (English commentary with some swearing), HERE (Русский комментарий), HERE (Русский комментарий), HERE (Русский текст), HERE, HERE (English Text) and HERE, HERE (Русский текст).
Conclusion:
My initial conclusion would say that the text based part of the game needs to be finished. As it stands it spoils the game somewhat as you cannot always read what is said due to the translations to English not being present. I presume the Steam version will include this as one of the things to sort. I’m thinking of buying a copy while it is on sale as I quite enjoyed playing it briefly.

My Win XP PC Specifications
Windows XP Pro 32bit , Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz ,
4 Gb memory (DDR 2) , NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .
It doesn't work , even though it's been described as
Windows XP compatible .
It throws the error message :
" ForestGuardian.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point ReleaseSRWLockExclusive could
not be located in the dynamic link library KERNRL32.dll " .
In the Steam page of the game I saw that the game is
Windows XP compatible but it requires a 64-bit processor
and operating system .
So , maybe that's the problem .

My Win 7 PC Specifications
Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit Service Pack 1 ,
Intel Core2Duo E8500 3,16Ghz , 4 Gb memory (DDR 2) ,
NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 768Mb .

Downloaded and installed without a problem .

It works just fine under Windows 7 , even though it's
not 64-bit ???

I've tried to play the game for about 20 min. but the
lack of translated text does not help at all .
I was forced to randomly click on the buttons , without
understanding why I get the results that I get , so I had
to quit the game .
It looks interesting enough to spend some time on it but
only if they fix the translating problem .
Also , some instructions would be appreciated .

Nevertheless , a big thanks to the Developer / Publisher
that gave us the game for free and the GameGotd team
for their wonderful job .

P.S.
Hi Whiterabbit-uk .
I've found your email .
I will try to send you a reply ASAP .

Steam no longer supports Win XP since 1st Jan 2019 due to something to do with Chrome. This game is a free standing version of the Steam version of the game, which is still in early access. This may be the reason why it wont work on XP, but I'm only speculating.

Whiterabbit-uk, hi .
Thank you for the reply .
I know about Steam stopping support for Win XP .
Actually my Steam account became inaccessible the first days of April 2019 .
So I started using my Win 7 installation to access Steam .
Maybe you are right about the reason of the problem .
The good thing is that the game works just fine on my Win 7 Pc .
I hope that they fix the untranslated text problem soon , so I will give the game
another try .

JEDIGEG,

I'm sure they will fix the untranslated text, at least on the Steam version. Also, hopefully they will consider giving it away again when they finally release it out of early access.

There was a developer aboutm10myears ago, that update his game at least 20 times and said to the giveaway community to just message him on his web site and he would give all new updates for free; which he honoured until it was fully updated. I still have several of the updates somewhere.

Whiterabbit-uk,
I hope the same too .
The story with the developer reminded me the case
of the Pc FPS game "Sin" and the (I think) 12 patches
it needed in order to finally play the game without glitches .
The first half of the game was just fine but then , Half Life
was announced and the developer rushed to release the
game before Half Life .
That caused mistakes in the code that caused glitches .
At some point the player could not finish a level .
The developer released a lot of patches and managed to make
the game playable again .
After all that the game got a very bad reputation .
Nevertheless , I loved the game and I often think that it would
be nice if someone could revive it for today's computers .
Do you remember it ?

There was a lot of error pop ups when i first downloaded it, I didnt think it would play but it did. Despite picking the US flag all the player options were in another language. I assume they said ask for money or take money with a reply in blue or red. There is no way to play this game unless you speak the other language.

mel,

Hi Mel, it's a pity they haven't sorted the language issues yet. This game is still in early access, basically a late alpha or beta version of the game. the developers don't expect to released the completed version for another four months or more. I expect the language options will be fixed by them. Maybe we will get the final version when its released. Some of the message boxes and other options do appear in English, just not all of them yet.

Despite the language issues I still enjoyed what little I played.

Whiterabbit-uk,
I agree, I downloaded it because it looked interesting. But i cant even complete the first challenge.... Squeeze the portfolio?!? It didnt seem to save the little progress i made stealing peoples money.
I hope we get an update with the language, so I can find out what the red boxes are telling me i am doing wrong :)

mel,
Hi again, I think you have to avoid carrying out stealing items when there are other NPC around apart from the one you are stealing from. (Much like when I'm playing The Elder Scrolls Online. I play as a thief and assassin. If other NPC's are too close, they alert the local guards, who may chase me and if caught I lose all the things i've stolen, plus I get a fine and have a negative buff added, that reduces with time. If I come near any guards while this negative buff is still active, they will arrest me or kill me., if I try to run and get caught they kill me). Each of the six NPC's that are walking around have different characteristics. I've not figured them out yet, though when I asked for money from the soldier I got a positive response, asking one of the other characters I got a negative response. The interactions between your character and the others depends on who is nearby at any one time. There are a couple of stationary NPCs that when clicked on, a different window appears. So far I've only seen Russian text and I've not figured out what the window is for .

I may just buy the game as it is on sale at he moment for less than the cost of a cup of coffee. At least the Steam version is being updated by the developer; whereas this free standing version is really just an alpha or very early beta release, that won't be updated unless they give the game away again when its complete?
