Ludum Dare

Hey guys, hope you've all been well! Just got finished spending my weekend working on my game jam entry for Ludum Dare, where the goal is to make a game over just one weekend. I wanted to try something a little different so I convinced my roommate to help me make a horror game with absolutely zero visuals. I thought it would be a neat idea to attempt to make a game that was entirely communicated to you through audio. It's pretty rough around the edges, of course, but I'm actually pretty proud of it. Feel free to download it and check it out:  http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-32/?action=preview&uid=52179 (I apologize for the corny voice acting, but we couldn't use text so we had no choice :P)

I wasn't the only one competing in the jam, though! Vanilly and S worked with a couple of their friends (Zeta and Plumegeist) to make this seriously beautiful 2D platformer:

Hotfix 6.0.2 for Patrons

Hey, here's the hotfix fixing the biggest bugs from the last hotfix. There was one bug that I was unable to replicate, which was the issue with saving and loading that some people were having. If you were suffering from that bug, please export and e-mail your save file to me at HartistaPipebomb@gmail.com so I can take a look; thanks!

6.0.2 Hotfix

Bug Fixes
- Fixed the memory leak, still working on optimizing
- Using the breeder from the breeding menu should work correctly now
- All monsters except elves should now have a consumable effect (still being balanced)
- Added a back to the scrollbar for better scrolling
- Dickwolf x Dickwolf now have the correct number of hands, and other small animation error fixes

Known Issues
- You may have trouble loading saves from earlier versions
- Can't sort by monster type in the Item menu yet
- There's no tutorial yet
- Pretty much all of the in-game stat and price values are placeholder; do not expect things to be remotely balanced just yet
- "I hate words" can cause strange issues (maybe you should try liking words more)

New characters and concepts

Hi all! This month is a focus on finishing the rest of the catgirl animations and breeder animations!
Here are some new concepts for the last of catgirl and some breeder poses
And a mElf x Felf in the mix
A few new (and old but revamped) NPC's have made an appearance!

breedingseason.com!

Hey, just letting you all know that I'm aware of the bugs introduced in the last hotfix and I'll be tossing up a 6.0.2 hotfix ASAP (this one will be an actual hotfix and not like a mini release :P).

Also, I wanted to announce that from now on you can use the url breedingseason.com to get to the blog! That should make it slightly less annoying than typing the blogspot url :P.

Hotfix 6.0.1 for Patrons

Yo. Here's that hotfix I promised, though to be honest it ended up a little bit like a small release :P. Managed to knock out a lot of little bugs. Next build will be 6.1 and I'll be releasing that in roughly another week and a half. I'll do the 5.9 public release at the same time.

6.0.1 patch notes

Additions
- Futa Holstauruses are now in the game
- New futaurus/catgirl animation
- New dickwolf/melf blowjob animation
- New felf/stallion and felf/demon animations
- There's now a snowy version of the town in winter
- The different monsters each now have unique consumable abilities (still balancing these)
- The gallery has been updated with the ability to set futa/neo and change the background
- Kala's camp is way prettier now (still nothing there, though)
- The futaurus/male elf and catgirl/futa elf animations have been added back to the game
- The Incorrigible trait has been added back to the game

Bug Fixes
- You can no longer duplicate monsters by continuing to hit "keep" after they're born
- Futa elves will show up correctly in the elf stockades now
- The Player's portrait in the status menu now shows correct gender
- Pens now refresh correctly after you donate or release a monster
- Menus should now refresh correctly when you fulfil a monster request
- The shop menu and breeding menu now sort correctly when the list is refreshed
- You now have to meet NPCs for them to give requests/show up in contacts
- Your first three requests will now always be a bronze, silver, and gold
- The monster and consumable shops will now periodically get new stock in without you paying to restock
- Breeding menu no longer randomly shows crit XP when it shouldn't
- Monsters should always level up when they reach enough XP now
- The Neoteny trait now shows up in the guild trait order menu
- You should no longer get requests for monsters over level 100
- Level request now scale slower, and request duration scales with them
- You now get trait description tooltips on the guild services menu
- Traits now have a stack size limit (most traits only stack up to 5)
- Ordering monsters now removes the correct amount of GP, and the length of time the order takes increases with the rarity of the trait
- Fixed a number of small animation issues
- Fixed the thing with the catgirl nose (you know the one)

Known Issues
- Can't sort by monster type in the Item menu yet
- Pretty much all of the in-game stat and price values are placeholder; do not expect things to be remotely balanced just yet
- "I hate words" can cause strange issues (maybe you should try liking words more)
- Dickwolf/Dickwolf is missing a hand, as well as a handful of other animation errors that are still floating around

And, just for fun, here's a sneak preview of a special little mini-game you'll have the chance to take part in at the beach in order to get materials for crafting stronger consumables:
And yes, there will be a chance you might end up finding yourself reeling in a much bigger (and sexier) catch as well :).

Happy Easter!

Hey all! I hope you all fuck like rabbits today on Easter! (In addition to a Christian holiday, Easter used to be a pagan spring fertility festival, so that's right up our alley :P)

I'm just dropping in for a tiny update to let you all know that there will be a 6.0.1 hotfix with a lot of minor bugfixes/small improvements coming in next week.
