What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We require more time to experiment. There are many additional objectives we would like to complete and some human feedback will be very useful in helping us achieve our mission.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We hope to release our creation in about a year (365 days), but this is very much subject to change as we consider our options.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“All the chapters are currently completed. Most refinements will be in the art and music. About 7% of character sprites or expressions have yet to be implemented. Currently using mostly placeholder music.

Achievements may be implemented based on community feedback. There will also be some additional content in the form of tabloid pages and Steam reviews discussing global events and 'Death Simulator'. Additional "episodes" may be included depending on how well things go.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Our creation is fully functional. As the Ren'Py engine is our chosen instrument to fulfill our objective, most common features are already embedded. The following highlights some of these features.

Features: Save, Load, Skip, Hide Text, Scroll (text) forward, Scroll (text) backward, History.

Please refer to the "About this" section for more details.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. Everyone will pay a high price in the future once we fully release. We plan to gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We welcome suggestions on additional features and ideas. Despite being few in number, we will do our best. The community's human input will mostly influence what kind of additional content and features (such as tabloid pages) will be included in the final release. We will carefully examine the data (reviews, comments etc) and take them into consideration in planning the subsequent chapters.

Thank you very much for your interest in collaborating with us.”

“I am Booth Preacher Jim and I.... I never asked for this”
4/20 – Booth Preacher Jim

About This Game

It is time for everyone on Earth to hear of the good word! And that word is Jim!

Let us carefully examine the life of Jim through the venerable medium known as the VISUAL NOVEL. A visual novel is like a traditional novel in digital form that has music, sounds and pictures. Pictures!!! The player progresses through the story by simply clicking the mouse and revealing subsequent text. In the game, much like in real life right now, some limited interactions are allowed.

The human player can make decisions at certain points in the story and choose one path over another. Just like real life, where one can choose to ignore or heed the parable of Jim. Would you like to know more?


This is the heartwarming story of Booth Preacher Jim, the Man of Sterling Quality.

Jim is a tremendous man who is big and strong and manly. Everyone knows it, even if his critics pretend otherwise. To be completely honest, they are all just jealous and have much wickedness in their evil hearts because they are nowhere near as masculine as Jim. Their small petty minds cannot comprehend Jim's huge heart that is always ready to help people, whether they want it or not.

His booth always appears where it is most needed. Unsuspecting pedestrians and commuters alike benefit from Jim's wise counsel as he screams unspecified sermons at them with a vociferous virile voice.

But his noble routine has been disrupted. An ancient Steam Greenlight game has finally been released from the depths of Early Access and now runs rampant throughout the internet. Anyone unfortunate enough to play 'Death Simulator' will summon forth the mysterious Evil Ghost in seven days... Unfortunately for Evil Ghost, her womanly ways will prove insufficient to overcome the mighty male maestro that is Jim.


  • Mostly linear story with very limited branching paths
  • Most standard Ren'Py functions (save, load, skip, scroll text, hide text, history)
  • A relatively large number of custom art of unspecified taste
  • Basic sounds and music whose volume can be adjusted
  • Estimated reading time: 40 to 60 minutes


  • Real humans.
  • Natural human conversations.
  • Masculine Dominance.
  • Strong male protagonist. Strong independent men.
  • There are women here. Women!!!
  • Real Life Permadeath. (Discontinued)
  • Weed.


Do not attempt to perform any of the dangerous and dubious actions that Jim and the others perform. For example, a human should avoid any close interactions with crocodiles or hit themselves (or others). The haka is usually performed in a serious fashion and for serious occasions.

Mature Content Description

Contains weed.
