Release 0.9

Sat, 03/29/2014 - 22:09 -- BlueWinds

So, here's the final backers-only release. In the next few days I'll be finishing up the last few details (and fixing any bugs discovered here) for a full public (free) release of the game. Expect it... very early April.

In this release:

  • Katri is now hireable (and her transformation related events should be a bit smoother).
  • I finished the last ~10 images for Katri.
  • There is a fourth loan payment (not a ton of text surrounding it, but some).
  • Apologizing to Alison after your fight (you can only trigger this event once, so you'll probably have to start a new game to see it).
  • A big gangbang is now available once you've hired all the women.
  • I tweaked the whoring money calculation. I didn't test the change, so you all will have to tell me how well it compares to Baths / Public Use now.

Emerald City Comic Con

Anyone else in Seattle and going? I was there today running a booth, and I'll be back on Sunday.

So... tired... I hold up to prolongued physical labor pretty well (and standing up + moving around for 10 hours counts), but crowds and people and smiling and talking...

I'd rather be locked in a basement alone for a month than locked in a basement with five others for a month.

Work history

Thu, 03/20/2014 - 19:37 -- BlueWinds

Two things in this post: an update, and a personal story. Everyone likes stories, right? Update first, story below the fold.

I am getting there! I edited the last sever images for Katri, wrote the fourth and final loan payment event, wrote one event for Tom Makhura, and added a harem scene involving all six women for a male PC.

Still to go are a couple more scenes, hiring Katri, and rebalancing Whore. Not that much left! I've also been working on the next game - new things are always shiny. I have some beautiful artwork from two artists, but I'm not sharing any of that here yet. :P

 

Text analysis

Sun, 03/16/2014 - 22:00 -- BlueWinds

So, I was kind of curious about this or this, given that many people online are surprised to learn I'm a woman. They (those two text analysis tools) generally classify me as male.

But then I tested them out with some other sample texts - various articles from Echidne, Gretta and The Journey Outside (Trudy Capote's game). The text almost universally registers as "male" - even the very touchy-feely post Trudy made about the death of her father.

So if three writers that I like and that are most definitely women all register that way... the tools must not be very good, and I shouldn't pay attention to anything they have to say about me.

:shrug:

Back to poking at the code for whoring income.

Release 0.84

Sun, 03/16/2014 - 00:05 -- BlueWinds

Well, here we are. This release contains several new backer scenes.

Known issues, which I will fix for the 1.0 release next month (there may be a 0.9 release in between, but don't count on it):

  • Katri / Karter appears irregularly, even after his transformation.
  • Whoring brings in far more money than it should.
  • Katri is not yet hireable.
  • Some of Katri's images are not yet edited.
  • You cannot make your final payment to Hilde.
  • Tom Makhura's event needs a followup.
  • It needs a second followup.
  • The final backer scene needs to be written (male PC taking woman's virginity).
  • Appologizing to Alison rather than making her admit wrongdoing (talkAlisonFightNo).
  • I need to finish a "finale" sex scene I started writing (if you've collected a harem, might as well enjoy it at least once...).

I'll cross items off here as I get to them.

Weird dream

Fri, 03/14/2014 - 11:42 -- BlueWinds

I am impatient and excited for a new release of SlaveMaker. He has an open beta out, but I'm waiting for the full 3.4 release. Slavery isn't really my thing, but it's easy enough for me to mentally substitute "slave" in the BDSM sense for the human-chattel sense of the word.

 


I thought I'd share some of my perversion with the internet again. Don't open this article unless you want too-much-information about a random stranger. *^^*

Backer scenes

Mon, 03/10/2014 - 09:39 -- BlueWinds

So, my goal right now is to run through all the backer scenes I haven't gotten to yet, at least one per day. The remaining ones are:

  • A woman offering bondage training (for the sub).

  • Claus, a very well hung young man who has some difficulty because the woman can't fit him.
  • A customer who uses your employee's pussy for perfume (a little weird, but I can write it...)
  • A male PC helping a woman through her first time.
  • A male customer getting a blowjob while the woman plays with him anally.
  • Tom Makhura, scene/event 1

  • Tom Makhura, scene/event 2

  • Tom Makhura, scene/event 3

If you expected me to be writing a scene for you, and it's neither on this list nor in the game already, please let me know.

Motivation

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 23:54 -- BlueWinds

Motivation is a fragile thing. Mine has been somewhat lacking these past few weeks - not because I'm tired, but because I'm excited about something new and having trouble focusing on something old. Here's a tiny sneak peak:

Vailia is about 1800px off to the right of this section on the full-sized image I have sitting on my desktop right now. :D

Version 0.83

Sat, 03/01/2014 - 19:18 -- BlueWinds

I was planning to work on the fourth and final loan payment, and to check out how much money various activities bring in, but instead I ended up writing a lot of fucking. Sex, sex, sex. I know you all will be very disappointed.

In this release there is:
