The new patron version is 0.24.0p and adds:
- The “Spit Play” training scene, part of the “Advanced Submission” training sequence taking Theresa from Permissivity 3 to 4, including new art for Theresa.
- The first two parts of “The Smoky Glasses”, a horror expedition involving predicament bondage that first unlocks during Act I on Day 5 or later in town. The second part becomes available in Act II in town, and the third part is still unreleased. If your existing save is after the start of Act II, you can still access the expedition.
- Routines for Theresa to go out and seek sex or to work as a prostitute at night, unlocked at Permissivity or Depravity 4.
- Support for custom greetings for Theresa, unlocked at Permissivity or Depravity 4.
- The ability to skip undesired Advanced Permissivity training and advance Theresa to the maximum Permissivity of 4.
Version 0.23.1 is now public, adding:
- 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.
Perverts who sign up to the $2 Patreon tier or above get access to advance versions of new builds and the patron-exclusive Reminisce feature, which lets you replay old erotic sequences that otherwise can’t be revisited and take new paths through them. $5 patrons can guide development priorities with polls and suggestions and submit additions to random snippets that show up during play. 0.24.x will go public once the next patron-only build goes live.
