New Project Announcement!

There's a shiny new project to announce! I've been referencing potential collaborations for a while, but it's time for the first one to come to light.

I've replied to a lot of artists interested in collaborating, but the only one to work professionally has been Nomo (see some of his work on HF). The two of us are teaming up to work on some projects that I have high hopes for.

Our first game has a demo basically complete, with multiple sex scenes done. Where I hope we'll really shine, however, is regularly putting out updates with decent amounts of content. We've planned out this first game in detail and it'll be jam-packed with a wide variety of scenes.

We've been working for almost two months, so I'm reasonably confident we can deliver and that I'll be able to continue work on TLS without any delays. Especially after I lose my job and have more time.

The demo will be going up at the beginning of August, but you guys can see a sneak peak of the promo now:

I'd say the formula here is similar to TLS, weighted more toward hentai. We're also keeping the scope much tighter, hoping to knock out a major chunk of the game each month until we finish after several. That's not to sell it short: I think the end result will be able to go toe-to-toe with just about anything in the western market.

And after that, who knows? Well, we do. X3 What I mean to say is that we hope to keep providing high quality games in a variety of different styles and genres and I'm really enthusiastic about what we could do! First, though, we're focused on proving ourselves by getting this game out.

Hope you'll all check it out! Let me know what you think!

Version 0.10.0 Release

Here we go, new update. Version history is updated, notes below, etc.

Version 0.10.0 [7/18/15]
 - New section of the game.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Three new affection sex scenes.

I have mixed feelings about this update. The plot developments turned out
just how I'd hoped, and I'm very happy with the character stuff in this
section, but not so sure about the combat balance. Some areas are fine, but one
is... more complicated. Let me explain.

I had an idea for a new mechanic would have been a really fun change of
pace, but the script I was trying to use failed me. I put some serious effort
into figuring it out with no success - this could be really time-consuming in
the end. Since literally everything else was completely ready, I decided to
redesign the dungeon around a different mechanic. Delaying the release for one
niggling problem wouldn't have felt right. I hope to fix the mechanic later,
but meanwhile let me know about the dungeon in this update since it didn't have
as much time for playtesting as the others.

In addition to that, there's a big battle sequence at the end that's
different than anything that's come before. I went back and forth about how
best to balance it, because I wanted to create the right feeling for the
section while providing a fun challenge of a slightly different sort. Not sure
if I struck the right balance or not, so let me know all your thoughts.

Once you've finished the update... you'll know that there's going to be a
poll for the $10 patrons. I won't put it up right away, let more people finish
the update first. I can't start work immediately, anyway, due to bug reports
and other business I have to take care of.

Anyway, enjoy! ^-^
