Birds are chirping and bees are buzzing because...

☘️🥚☘️️The Spring Event has begun! ☘️🥚☘️️


One of King Isaac's first acts coming into power was an attempt to encourage trading with other nations and promote fertility in the harvests to come. A great farming market would fill the Lower Courtyard of Stars Reach every springtimethus becoming known as the Spring Festival. Traders from Northmark, Bunnington, Atlantis, and the Sand Skirts would bring all sorts of soils, seeds, and saplings. At least they would under normal circumstances, but with the declaration of siege, all trade has been shut down.

However, there is one tradition of the Spring Festival that cannot be shut down, at least not while your favorite bunny guard Hilde is on duty! During Springtime at the Burrow, all the bunny folk host a town wide Egg hunt for all the children. Since all the younglings at Stars Reach have been evacuated, Hilde is changing the rules to make it more fun for the Guards and you!

Each member of the Castle Guards have been given an egg to paint and hide somewhere in Stars Reach! While some girls may take hiding their eggs more seriously than others, as part of the rules they must all give you a hint as to where their egg is hidden, before you can start looking for it. Depending on how many you find will affect how much fun you and Hilde will have on your picnic date afterward ❤️❤️❤️ 


  • ☘️ Download the Spring Festival (current) Demo game build! 
  • ☘️ Accept the Event Job from Hilde at the South Tower on in-game Day 2, Tuesday!
  • ☘️ Find as many Eggs as you can, then bring them back to Hilde to go on a picnic adventure into the Hidden Forest!

The Faulty Apprentice Event Job: Bunny-bunny Egg Hunt will be available to everyone for a limited time.


There will be Good and Bad endings if you are playing a Chapter One build, but if you wish to achieve the Ultimate Romance ending you will need to find eggs from Guards and locations that do not unlock until Chapter Two. 



- $10 Knight TierPatrons can unlock the ULTIMATE ending in Ch.2! 
- $2 Patrons get Patreon-Access NSFW chapter One on itchio! 
- Free version available on Steam and itchio, and GameJolt!

Hail KS Apprentice! Your good friend and humble project lead, Din here to present the latest update to Faulty Apprentice: Chapter One. You may have noticed the Upper Courtyard was a little empty on Sunday Night, and that was because we have a few Guards yet to be revealed. In our latest patch, you can now start Talking to the Gorgon, Slime, and Ghost Guard! So if you are playing evil route these are definitely for you, and if you're playing for good, maybe you can turn them around over time?

Upper Courtyard: Night 07
- Gorgon Guard
- Slime Guard

West Gate: Night 07
- Ghost Guard*

 *The Ghost Guard, was featured on our Map to Adventure episode, her design was based on a runner up winner from our contest, GlassTrinity!

Aside from these new Guards, we have also added fixes to the Dark Elf and Black Cat dialogues and character hubs~


Developer Update Stream - Saturday 3/2
