The latest version of Ruin Me is now available to patrons! The new Patreon version adds a new training sequence in exhibitionism, a sex scene with a secondary NPC where she doms you, and the ability to be nonbinary. The new free version has a whole bunch of stuff, including new customization for the player and the training subject, new play scenes, and a continuation of the Act 2 storyline.
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 0.9.0, currently patron-only, adds:
- A new training sequence in Exhibitionism that brings Theresa from Depravity 2 to 3. This includes a new outfit for Theresa.
- A play scene with Esther where she doms you, accessible by visiting her elsewhere in the mansion once you’ve encountered her once. This comes along with a full revision of Esther’s art.
- The ability to have a nonbinary gender; characters will refer to you with “they” pronouns. If you have an existing save, you can change your gender at the mirror in your bedroom.
- Actual implementations of Theresa’s “self-degradation” and “begging” greetings and her “edging” and “orgasm” routines, since they’re now unlocked.
- An enhancement so that Reminisce entries for training scenes now have a brief summary of the scene.
- A change so you can no longer train a stat unless other stats are caught up; to start Depravity 2, other stats must be at 1.
- An improvement so training sequences now notify you that stats have increased when completed.
Version 0.8.1 is now free and 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 an update to the Manual Sex training scenes to use it).
- A change to make forms of address for Theresa lowercase when appropriate.
- A revision to Theresa’s kneeling POV art from 0.8.0, to fix some anatomy and perspective issues.
