The new patron version is 0.23.0p and adds:
- A scene where Theresa updates you on what she’s learned about the Reform Institute in the beginning of Act III, accessible in Dr. Harvey’s office in the old chapel.
- The ability to customize the Reform Institute, unlocked by the above scene. There are four different aspects you can improve.
- A new minor ruination, “Rescue a Boston Marriage”, letting you help a couple regain their intimacy. It’s available in the cellar of the Reform Institute in Act III once Theresa has informed you about the “birds”.
- Temporary body marking, unlocked by speaking to Pappy in the drugstore. Theresa will let you apply certain markings once her Depravity or Permissivity is 2 or 3; talk to her in her chambers.
- Assorted minor revisions and fixes.
Version 0.22.1 is now public, adding:
- A play scene: “Kiss Theresa as you masturbate each other”, available at Experience 2 and Permissivity 1.
- Outfit customization for Theresa, available in her chambers and unlocked by stat requirements or events that introduce outfits.
- Previously-existing outfits are her normal dress, her négligée, the caving outfit, and nudity.
- Additional outfits: a short, beaded fringe dress; an investigator outfit with suspenders; and mesh lingerie. They are available in a new exploration location outside town, purchasable with Ken.
- Alternate narration for Theresa’s first wearing of her négligée, for screenreaders and folks with images off.
- Revisions to existing scenes with Theresa to account for her potentially being already naked.
- An almost complete rework of Theresa’s standard standing pose.
- An improvement to Meg’s artwork.
