The Future of TLS

Hello, everyone! I'm here to talk about several things.

Most importantly, I've just made public a significant Patreon post. In it, I talk about exactly how many chapters TLS will have, outline the rough shape of what future development will look like, and share some thoughts about what's been done so far compared to my original plans.

Second, I've updated the public version yet again to 0.29.5. Nothing too important in this update, but I don't like there being bugs in the main public version when a new one isn't imminent. So if anyone is replaying the war or starting fresh, get the newest version from the previous post.

Third, I've put up my commercial games on GameJolt. Check them out at these links if you have any interest in the platform:
https://gamejolt.com/games/ouroboros/252857
https://gamejolt.com/games/crimsongray/285247

As I detail in the first link, whenever I complete a chapter of TLS, I take a break to work on something different to refresh myself creatively. So I have not been working on TLS recently, but I have been working on a new project that will hopefully be complete soon. Patrons will definitely get to play a new, complete game in October, and everyone else can count on seeing it in time. ^-^

So yes, feel free to read that first post and please look forward to the future of TLS!

TLS 0.29.5 Public Release

Download*: https://mega.nz/#!rp0wRJrD!HZXZ1MMFEkX8aeV95zrULoy0iXfj9lOAYOTXvLPyO4E
Mirror*: https://www.mediafire.com/file/wwi0h1deh6je0v9/TLS%200.29.5.exe
RTP: https://mega.nz/#!yhNUhK6a!9Kk_1qeFMQ_ni5uyaUT7DRAOLlhcauYCpk9LnlUIkgM

*Requires RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to be installed. If you don't know what that means, use the RTP link.

Version 0.29.0
 - Another double update, both the end of the war and the aftermath.
 - Four new plot sex scenes.
 - Six new affection sex scenes.
 - Decided to increase the speed of buffing skills and trialed it on Carina's. Report if you like it and I can use the same style for other skills that target the entire party.
 - The new section of the game involves splitting the party into three groups for one dungeon. This is only possible thanks to the scripting work of Decanter. Huge thanks to him!
Version 0.29.1
 - Some polishing, removal of serious Hilstara bug.
Version 0.29.2
 - The orc summit has been made somewhat easier.
 - Hilstara's sequence has been made harder.
 - The number of reserves during the aftermath has been reduced.
 - This section has also been modified to eliminate some bugs, but more checking is necessary.
 - Riala's skills have all been compiled into a single menu.
 - The Unsuccubus Mass image has been improved (thanks to Decanter!).
 - All party buffing animations improved and sped up (thanks to CyberForte!).
 - Many minor bugs/fixes/improvements.
Version 0.29.3
 - Reviewing the entire war, there have been a number of tweaks to improve the overall balance.
 - Though I kept the reduced reserves, I made the instability penalties less punishing. In theory this will nudge games away from both extremes.
 - The results of the investments have changed in multiple ways. They are generally more beneficial to the player, so you may want to replay the very end.
 - Thanks to Decanter, we have an edited chapter four title card. Now hopefully more people will read it right at first glance.
 - Riala's sex skills have been given new animations and slightly rebalanced.
 - The usual bugs, typos, and polishing.
Version 0.29.4
 - Fixed several invisible but nontrivial mistakes involving hidden variables.
Version 0.29.5
 - Yet more fixes, most trivial but a few inconveniencing to certain saves.

Alright, everyone, this is the official public release of this version as well as the end of the third chapter! As you can see, the war has undergone a lot more rebalancing than a normal release thanks to all the new sections and different kinds of challenges. I also feel that some of the initial values I had for the investments and consequences weren't quite right, so I've modified many of those. Hopefully this version gives you some hard choices and challenges but is still fun to play!

With this chapter complete, I will be taking a break to work on a short new project, to refresh my creative energy. After the last chapter I created Ouroboros, for example. I will be saying a little more about this in the future, and you can count on the roadmap to the end of TLS being made public soon, but for now, please enjoy the release!

EDIT: The links have been updated to version 0.29.4, which makes a number of invisible changes. While these are not generally critical, if you did reasonably well in the war but received zero social capital during the aftermath, you definitely want to replay that section.

Version 0.29.0 Released!

New update for patrons! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

REMINDER: As this as an extra large update, it will take more than a single week for bugtesting to be complete. See below for a list of changes and expect the public version in a week. It's currently available on Patreon to $1 and up backers.

Version 0.29.0
 - Another double update, both the end of the war and the aftermath.
 - Four new plot sex scenes.
 - Six new affection sex scenes.
 - Decided to increase the speed of buffing skills and trialed it on Carina's. Report if you like it and I can use the same style for other skills that target the entire party.
 - The new section of the game involves splitting the party into three groups for one dungeon. This is only possible thanks to the scripting work of Decanter. Huge thanks to him!

Version 0.29.2 [9/1/17]
 - The orc summit has been made somewhat easier.
 - Hilstara's sequence has been made harder.
 - The number of reserves during the aftermath has been reduced.
 - This section has also been modified to eliminate some bugs, but more checking is necessary.
 - Riala's skills have all been compiled into a single menu.
 - The Unsuccubus Mass image has been improved (thanks to Decanter!).
 - All party buffing animations improved and sped up (thanks to CyberForte!).
 - Many minor bugs/fixes/improvements.

Really came down to the wire, so not a lot to say now. If you want a preview of this version, do check out the screenshots I've posted on various forums (ULMF, for one example). It's currently playable on Patreon, of course. Expect the public version in time, not necessarily a week depending on how long the bug fixing process takes.

I will probably not do many extra large updates like this again in the future. Though I think they let me produce more content per day overall, the additional content doesn't seem to mean anything to a vocal minority. It might be for the best in terms of overall game development again in the future, but in the short term it does not feel worth it. -_-

But that aside, this is a large update that I feel is a satisfying conclusion to the third chapter of the game! I hope everyone enjoys it!

TLS 0.28.0
 - Double update: the first two thirds of the war against the Incubus Emperor.
 - Three new plot sex scenes.
 - Implementation of the new party splitting mechanics.
TLS 0.28.1
 - Riala balance update, unique combat reaction added.

 - Misc polishing.
TLS 0.28.2
 - Further internal mechanical fixes and balancing.

TLS 0.28.3
 - Yet more polishing to war calculations.
 - On Yarra's route, the variable "Empress Approval" now works properly.
 - The Kingsmen and Queensmen bars now have more variability throughout chapter three.
 - Flower Speculation investment now removed from ledger after the reunion.
 - The Dusty Horde and AriGarda are no longer listed in the ledger after taking over Yhilin. The Iron Cudgel remains, however.
 - Since some people were unclear on this, rewrote dialogue to make it completely unambiguous when the Dusty Horde is destroyed.

In addition to more balancing and getting feedback from players, I used this week to finish off some old bugs and minor issues that had been low priority while I was rushing on new content. These are not a big deal, but I do try to go back and polish whenever I get a chance.

As a reminder: I might make retroactive changes to this section to balance the entire war, once I finish the next update. So if you definitely want to play only once, maybe wait a little. Having said that, this update has loads of new content for everyone to play!

Crimson Gray Released!

You can now purchase the game at the following places:
Steam
itch.io SFW
itch.io NSFW
MangaGamer

See the game's page for the NSFW patches and more info. Also, Ouroboros is on sale at itch.io and MangaGamer!

John is a young man suffering from severe depression. As he loses his sense of purpose in life, he begins to see the world in unfocused gray. Just when he begins to lose all hope, John meets a girl... a very special girl.

Your every choice will impact both characters' mental states, changing their fate. John might reject Lizzie, succumb to his depression, or die violently. Lizzie might lose control and ruin her chances or become obsessed with shadowy conspiracies that may or may not exist. Or just maybe the two of them might be exactly what the other needs and their story could end in happiness...

Version 0.28.0 Released!

New update for patrons! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

TLS 0.28.0
 - Double update: the first two thirds of the war against the Incubus Emperor.
 - Three new plot sex scenes.
 - Implementation of the new party splitting mechanics.

This is the extra large update I promised, containing the majority of the war. If you want a preview, definitely check out the update with screenshots that I'll be posting on all the forums.

Due to the length and complexity of this update, I can't promise it will be out in the usual exactly one week. There are a lot of calculations going on underneath the surface, and I want to make sure they're all correct and well-balanced before I release the update publicly.

Meanwhile, if you were waiting for Crimson Gray to appear on MangaGamer, the preorder page is now online. I'm still mostly looking toward the Steam release, but definitely use MG if that's your preference:
http://www.mangagamer.com/detail.php?goods_type=1&product_code=1027 

So yes, public release before too long, then the end of the war and chapter three after that!

Crimson Gray Released!

I have a new completed game out! I'll put an image and the synopsis here, but you can find out more information at this public Patreon post or the game's page. It will be available in all stores in two weeks, but currently it is exclusive to Nutaku.





Synopsis

John is a young man suffering from severe depression. As he loses his sense of purpose in life, he begins to see the world in unfocused gray. Just when he begins to lose all hope, John meets a girl... a very special girl.

Though Lizzie appears affectionate and devoted, it quickly becomes clear that she's so violent and unstable that a normal boy would run away from her. But when John sees her, he sees someone else suffering from a mental condition. John is willing to risk his safety for a chance to help Lizzie gain some mental stability. Lizzie is willing to murder everyone in school if she believes it would make him happy.

Your every choice will impact both characters' mental states, changing their fate. John might reject Lizzie, succumb to his depression, or die violently. Lizzie might lose control and ruin her chances, or become obsessed with shadowy conspiracies that may or may not exist. Or just maybe the two of them might be exactly what the other needs, and their story could end in happiness...

Crimson Gray is a psychological thriller, exploring the psyches of the characters and the strange circumstances that brought them together. It has a focus on subtle actions having consequences, your choices impacting the characters' mental stability in ways that could make choices down the line have very different results.

TLS Update

I am still aiming for Friday, July 7th. This update will be larger than normal and may require more bugtesting. Meanwhile, I hope Crimson Gray will tide you over!

 - Final iteration of Yhilin before the war.

 - During previous Yhilin iterations, you can now summon more people to the throne room. No balance changes.
 - New Eustrin mausoleum graphics thanks to Lamsey.
 - Lucy now has more unclothed images during her naked scenes thanks to Bug Reporting.
 - Bug Reporting is also responsible for the adorable succubus children. Expect to see more of them over time. ^-^

 - Back in Stineford, there's now a visual effect when the door is destroyed.
 - If you invested in the demon-ridden mineshaft, it now appears properly in your investment ledger.

Version 0.27.1
 - Made a major change to the magical shop in the Rose District. If you fulfill the requirements, you'll now have a chance to buy Orgasmic Empire tier equipment here before the war! This one is a balance chance, but can be utilized by any save prior to the ending screen.
 - Various flavor additions around Yhilin.
 - The usual polishing and bugfixes.

Prepare for war, everybody! I am very busy with the launch of Kingdom of Deception, so I'll keep my notes brief. Hope you enjoy! ^-^

As you can see, this update is getting a lot of things properly in order so that I can focus fully on the war event. Aside from the retroactive changes, though, it includes one last visit to Yhilin that should be fun. A lot of quests/variables/investments that have been ongoing for a while finally wrap up this time.

Some of the things I've been working on in the background are getting much closer to release, so look forward to some of that. But meanwhile, please enjoy this update!

Ouroboros on Newgrounds

The public version of 0.26.x will still be coming out this Friday, but for now, I have another diversion for you. Last night I put version 1.1.7 of Ouroboros up on Newgrounds, and fortunately it managed to get accepted fairly quickly:
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/692386

Even subtracting the people I know, it seems Newgrounds doesn't hate the game! =D I didn't think Ouroboros was a great fit for the site, so I'm pleased that it has been somewhat well-received so far. Depending on how well it does, this could be a chance for my work to get exposure to a large group of people who probably haven't seen it before. Please check it out, and if you're a Newgrounds user, maybe give me a vote?

EDIT: Huh, we got frontpaged pretty fast. I thought daily top five was about the best we can hope for, but this is unexpectedly good. Votes are still helpful for potential ranking and longevity on the front page - thanks to everyone!

EDIT 2: Alright: frontpaged, daily 2nd place, and thousands of views so far! I was hesitant about this, but it seems to have been a good choice. Now it's just a question of how long the ratings/views keep us on the front page, but it should stay there for at least a while, pulling in some new attention. One more thanks to everyone!

Full disclosure: if you played the old version of Ouroboros, much less 2.0, there's not really much new for you. I had to make some modifications so that it would be accepted to Newgrounds, but otherwise it's a port of the same game. I hope that some people encounter it for the first time and enjoy it, though!

Anyway, back Friday with the public version of the release.

TLS 0.26.0 Released! (+Demographics!)

New update for patrons! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

Version 0.26.0
 - New section setting the stage in Eustrin and Aram.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Party switching mechanics implemented in preparation for upcoming content.

Lots of new content I hope everyone will enjoy, but not a lot to say about that now. Big thanks to everyone who filled out surveys! I've just made my Patreon post on the subject public. Feel free to read it if you want to see the results in considerable detail along with some analysis and the Patreon discussion of those results:
https://www.patreon.com/posts/8851324

But even if you don't read that, I hope you want to see the results of all the character voting! I decided to do it in the style of those manga popularity polls for fun. ^-^ Here it is:

TLS Fan Demographics

Do you like statistics? I do! =D I find it really interesting to know more about the kinds of people who are interested in my games. So on that note, I'd be happy if you wanted to fill out this survey:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdxpYacxRczt5S4o72pQrRix67aeiVwgQ-DxHX501OGXFTn0A/viewform?usp=sf_link

NOTICE: Survey closed while I gather all the data in preparation for making a post! I'll open the survey again later for people to leave feedback, but for now I need to deal with a stable dataset.

All information is anonymous and ALL QUESTIONS ARE OPTIONAL. The survey is not intended to be invasive and none of the data can be used in an exploitative way. This is information for information's sake.

If you're a patron, please fill out the version of this survey linked on Patreon instead of this one.

I proposed this idea on Patreon last week and just made the post public now. Click through if you want to see the discussion or find out what the top ten countries interested in TLS are! Those numbers are just based on blog traffic, though... if you fill out the survey, maybe we can get better data! ^-^

*Requires RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to be installed. If you don't know what that means, use the RTP link.

Version 0.25.0 [3/3/17]
 - New iteration of Yhilin.
 - Four new plot sex scenes.
 - Three new affection sex scenes.
Version 0.25.1 [3/11/17]
 - New synergy skill system introduced!
 - The bug with restarting the game via F12 has been fixed.
 - Assorted bugfixes and polishing.
Version 0.25.2 [3/17/17]
 - More bugfixes and polishing.
 - Hardcore hugging action added to the reunion section.

This update covers a very busy visit to Yhilin, plus the new system of synergy skills. Lots of fun content in this update, as well as a development I know may be controversial for some. As always, I welcome all feedback and criticism.

That covers it for this release, so I'll be beginning work on the next section of the plot. However, you're also going to see some other fun things here in the near future. So stay tuned for those, and meanwhile enjoy the release!

TLS 0.25.1 Released

New update for patrons, including $1 patrons this time! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

Version 0.25.1
 - New synergy skill system introduced!
 - The bug with restarting the game via F12 has been fixed.
 - Assorted bugfixes and polishing.

The release schedule is unusual because I wanted to take the time to implement a new system: synergy skills. These allow party members to use new skills when another character is in the party. For example, if Robin is in the same party, Aka will gain a fire elemental stabbing skill. I think this is a fun way to expand the game mechanically and build on the relationships between party members.

Expect more of these as the game goes on! We're currently brainstorming the whole system's balance and many specific skills in a special Patreon thread, so feel free to stop by there if you're on the right tier.

Next public release is on Friday, see you then!

Friday, March 3, 2017

TLS 0.25.0 Released!

New update for patrons! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

Version 0.25.0
 - New iteration of Yhilin.
 - Four new plot sex scenes.
 - Three new affection sex scenes.

Version 0.25.0 of the game is another return to Yhilin, and I hope this will be a satisfying one. Some things that have been promised for a very long time will finally happen this update, but I'll let you see those for yourself.

This update will be released publicly in two weeks - please note the difference from the usual schedule. The reason is that next week there will be a second Patreon update featuring some code fixes and a new feature. More about this in a later post, I think it will be a fun addition.

Version 0.24.0
 - New section of the story, finishing the Zirantian section.
 - One new plot sex scene.
Version 0.24.1
 - Polishing and bugfixing.
 - Improved version of Fuani's image found by Decanter.

This update finishes Zirantia! Lots of things wrapped up this time, so next the party will be headed back to Yhilin. I hope that the next release can come sooner than the usual 4-5 weeks, because I've been trying to work ahead on Ari-Yhilina events like the new investments you saw last time. There will be more updates about this on Patreon, hopefully culminating in a faster than average release.

I think that's all for now. I'm going to be AFK for a while, because I am actually going outside and watching a movie. Insanity, I know. If anything got broken during the fixes, I'll be back to fix it later. Otherwise, I hope that I'll be able to transition fully to working on the next release.

I think this'll be a really satisfying update, lots of things set up before coming together. It'll be playable in a week, as usual. I meant to have some new fanfiction posted publicly to tide you guys over, but I ended up crunched for time this release cycle. I'll try to post it later. Meanwhile, enjoy!

*Requires RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to be installed. If you don't know what that means, use the RTP link.


Version 0.23.0
 - New section of the story added, beginning the Zirantian section.
 - Two new sex scenes.
 - The previous iteration of Ari-Yhilina has been updated, adding more potential affection.
 - There are also a significant number of Lynine/Orilise events added to that iteration.
Version 0.23.1
 - The usual bugfixes and polishing.
 - Additional flavor text added to palace room and the crypt.
 - Thanks to Lamsey for fixing and converting a lot of musical tracks. If you noticed any minor audio glitches before, those should be fixed now thanks to him!
 - Thanks to Decanter, we have a new Fuani sprite that matches her coloring better.
 - Since the "optimize" option does not really optimize in a game with multiple stats on equipment, it has been renamed. Thanks to HarmlessArachnid for volunteering his scripting knowledge, even if it didn't get used in the end. The discussions and contributions of players help me keep polishing all the details. ^-^
Version 0.23.2
 - Some minor polishing, but the real reason I put out a new version is this:
 - Several pots in 0.23.1 that give Zirantian Artifacts can't be interacted with properly. Update to this version to collect them.

Nice to have a straightforward release! I hope everybody enjoys this introduction to Zirantia. Lots of foundation for things in this update, so I hope you enjoy all the plot developments and new areas. Expect a big finish for Zirantia next update, then an extra large Yhilin update. The plot is definitely moving forward, we'll be getting to some very big events this year.

LewdGamer Interview

Okay, time to change pace a little! A while back I was interviewed by LewdGamer, and that interview just went online:
https://www.lewdgamer.com/2017/01/14/interview-sierra-lee-creator-last-sovereign/

Please do check it out. While some time is devoted to explaining my work for those who aren't familiar with it, there's also some new information in there!

Meanwhile, the release seems to have gone very smoothly, so the public version should definitely be out this Friday.

So, 2017!

Hello everyone, glad you're still with us! It's a new year and it'll be filled with a lot of releases. One of those should be coming soon, but first we have a few bits of extra content for you.

First, I've just made my 2016 reflection post on Patreon public:

Feel free to read for some more information about what I've done and what I'll be doing in the coming year. It should be a busy one, but I hope to be able to deliver a lot of content to everyone!

There will be some other extra content as well, but the first TLS release won't be too long in coming. Here's to a great 2017!
