Version 0.47.0p is exclusive to patrons and adds:
- A new graduation option for Theresa, “An Intimate Event”, which unlocks when Theresa’s stats are all at 4 and begins by talking to Theresa in her chambers. This option is available instead of the orgy. This involves spending a day one-on-one with Theresa and has various options:
- You can have a more romantic day or one that’s particularly filthy.
- One path allows for Theresa to dominate you during the day.
- All options end with a light dinner in a new location.
- A conversation menu with Theresa in her chambers, with responses that shift as the game progresses. You can discuss how she’s doing and how she feels about you.
- A bit of info from Byron during the intro that any minors in town are away at the mainland thanks to the causeway washing out.
- Change to use Theresa’s “on back” pose in the first training scene for Permissivity 3 (Vaginal Sex).
- Extensive refactoring of how the game tracks some things like player gender, genitals, clothing, and so on. This shouldn’t cause any changes in gameplay, so if you notice the game referring to you incorrectly, please let me know!
- Minor enhancements and fixes.
Version 0.46.3 is free for everyone, adding:
- “The Abstruse Synergy” horror expedition, with a tale of parasitic infestation and unreliable perception, available by exploring outside town after the beginning of Act 2. Optional kinks include lactation, group sex, mpreg, birthing, rough sex, and messiness.
- A new play scene with Meg involving urethral sounding. After you’ve delivered her first package, sounding rods will arrive in the entryway sometime soon after. Once they do, you can speak to Meg in the servants’ office to start the scene. While one path through the scene includes some instruction, please do your own research before trying sounding yourself.
- Completely redrawn art for Meg, including new arm poses and props in existing scenes.
- Variations on Meg’s conversations in the servants’ office for later in game progression.
- A submenu for conversations with Meg to make the servant’s office menu more readable.
- Categories for the out-of-town navigation menu to make it more manageable.
- New transitions, currently only used for travel during “The Abstruse Synergy”. Feedback on these transitions is welcome!
- A new option in the preferences menu to highlight “sophisticated” content. With this setting active, when you enable kinks using the locked suitcase in your bedroom, they will be bolded and highlighted in a color corresponding to each kink.
- A fix to the “street” background to make it a bit more level and crop out an artifact.
- Minor enhancements and fixes.
The patron version also has the Reminisce feature, which lets you replay old erotic sequences that otherwise can’t be revisited and take new paths through them. $5 patrons can access a special cheat menu, guide development priorities with polls and suggestions, and submit additions to random snippets that show up during play. The current latest version will go public once the next patron-only build goes live. If you want to contribute to the game’s development, please become a supporter on Patreon!
