Version 0.6.1 and an exciting opportunity

Mon, 04/29/2013 - 16:22 -- BlueWinds

So... a new version number. This isn't as large an update as some others, but there's still some new content and code fixes. And it's been long enough since 0.6.0 that I felt like a new number was in order.

  • New Saber content - there's... a lot of text in this - roughtly 4000 words.
  • Fixes for certain missions, and various minor textual modifications.
  • A new included webserver, which should make it easier to run the game locally on a variety of platforms.

Yeah... not much, compared to the usual update size. I can do whatever the hell I want with version numbers. ;P

Usual disclaimer, please report bugs, blah, blah.

KICKSTARTER (sort of)

Wait, what? Yes, you read that correctly! Read on below.

Update

Tue, 04/23/2013 - 21:50 -- BlueWinds

So, a bit of an update here. Not much progress to report game-wise, though work on some content for Saber and the addition of a new girl continue at a slow pace.

Partially, this can be laid at the feet of the fact that I'm just coming out of a depressive phase - not much interest in anything, regardless of topic - and partially on some life changes I'm planning out (nothing concrete happening until July, but it's still a big step forward for me personally).

Version 0.6.0 Released

Fri, 04/12/2013 - 15:34 -- BlueWinds

Tada! It's been a long time in coming, but it's finally here. Highlights of the new version include:

  • Smoother upgrade experience (less refreshing required to get the most recent version of files)
  • Completely reworked loan system - only the first two payments are written, but they have story now. If you continue an existing game these events will still trigger.
  • Choose a gender and name for your character (and you don't have to start a new game to do so)!
  • Prostitution profit / refusal / reputation system reworked. Not too much of a visible difference, but money is a bit harder to make, and refusal is much less random.
  • Mana has a new talk variant.
  • New images! Mostly for Saber and Jill, but also sprinkled all over the place.
  • Hiring girls costs more the more girls you have - Guild taxes and whatnot. The second building you buy will also be much more expensive.
  • A great many buxfixes. I believe this will be most stable "initial release" to date.
