The latest version of Ruin Me is now available to patrons! With this release, the previous version is now free for everyone, adding a horror expedition about a historical drowning site, a rare type of monster for a porn game, and potential pee play. Both versions include reframed character portraits for improved visuals!
You can always get the current free version on itch.io:
Please note: to upgrade on desktop, unzip the archive into a new directory. Your saves should carry over. Do not unzip over the previous version, as this can cause bugs.

Version 0.8.0, currently patron-only, adds:
- A story event involving the Ritual of Agrat, which is available once Theresa’s stats are all at 2. It progresses the Byatis storyline and includes a weird sex ritual!
- A change to the mirror in your bedroom to give a summary of your gender and appearance. You can retcon your skin color and change your gender there.
- Tracking for the status of your chest: either you have breasts, or the game will refer to your “chest”. If you have an existing save, women with a vulva are set to have breasts and all others are assumed to have none.
- The “Give Theresa a Spanking”, “Abuse Theresa While She Gives Manual Sex”, and “Receive Breast Play” play scenes. The lattermost scene is only available if you have breasts.
- The Strange Laboratory mansion exploration, unlocked by spending Ken once Act 2 has begun. Note that at this point you have a method for gaining Ken faster. This location provides basic anatomy customization.
- The ability to customize how Theresa greets you, done in her chambers under the new “propose a change” menu. She will now use a random greeting, chosen from the pool you select.
- The ability to customize Theresa’s nightly routine, done in her chambers under the new “propose a change” menu. If you choose one, she will report on her progress the first time you meet her each day. The orgasm denial option can result in a brief scene if you’re lucky.
- Nomenclature choices for Theresa’s breasts, your own breasts, and semen. I also reorganized the nomenclature menu under the “propose a change” menu.
- A brief scene where your basic BDSM supplies are recovered, intended to occur during the Sadomasochism training sequence. If you’ve already finished that sequence, you’ll get the scene out-of-order the next time you’re in the mansion entryway.
- A change to move the “Additional topic of education” option to inside the “Let’s work on your training” menu.
- A facial cumshot state to Theresa’s kneeling pose (and updated the Manual Sex training scenes to use it).
- A change to make forms of address for Theresa lowercase when appropriate.
Version 0.7.1, now free, adds:
- A new horror expedition, The Treacherous Splay, investigating a bend in the river that once killed animals and children but is now strangely quiet. It includes opportunities for picnics, romance, and watersports, and is available by talking to Arthur in the bookstore in Act 2.
- A change to make all standard character portraits more closely framed, which should help with the art appearing as if floating above the ground or poorly-resized.
- A fix to a couple of lines of dialogue that were inconsistent with the menu text in the manual sex training.
- A fix for a bug that let you pick training before you met the prerequisites.
Perverts who sign up to the $2 Patreon tier or above get access to advance versions of new builds and the patron-exclusive Reminisce feature, which lets you replay old erotic sequences that otherwise can’t be revisited and take new paths through them. 0.8.x will go public once the next patron-only build goes live.
