About This Game

What is Faulty Apprentice?

Faulty Apprentice is an interactive visual novel set in a medieval fantasy world, featuring character relationships, minigames, and a riveting blend of suspenseful drama and comedy. Take on the task of defending a Castle full of virtuous maidens against an evil warlock and his legion of gruesome goblins! You've got twenty days to prepare for battle!

Now normally fighting wars, slaying evil creatures, saving princesses, and otherwise kicking butt would be epic, but you're just a scrawny farm boy with nothing more than a letter of recommendation from a mysterious wizard.


10 romance-able characters! Each of the instructors has their own minigames and personality quirks. Depending on who you spend time Training with, or doing Jobs for, will determine their role in the Final Battle.

Will you inspire others for good or tempt them into evil? The choices you make will not only affect your fate but the fate of those around you as well.

Training and Jobs are broken down into three categories, Archery, Swordsmanship, and Magic, each with unique gameplay!

Unlock key story illustrations! Enjoy beautiful character sprites and animated background art. Collect through gameplay and view during Gallery Mode!

The Faulty Apprentice in-game timeline is broken down by day. Allocate your time each day by choosing from a range of activities. Training, Completing Jobs, Exploring Stars Reach Castle or building Relationships. Each of these activities has its own complex mechanics that bring a wide range to gameplay!

Over 30 characters to meet, 10 characters to date and 15+ locations to unlock!

Some routes of the game will lead to good, others to evil. Will you save the kingdom? Or will you bring about its destruction? The fate of Stars Reach Castle will be determined by you, the Faulty Apprentice.
