Alpha Build 3.1


HOTFIX: Made a change to Holstaurus Milk that should hopefully make it work better.
EDIT: Oops, accidentally posted up my cheater version with all the monster unlocked. Fixed now.
 NOTE: You can use SPACE to close menus quickly and skip through dialogue.

 UPDATES:

 -A lot of bug fixes: most of the older major bugs should be sorted out by now. Saves should work reasonably well now. If they're still a problem let me know.

 -NEW MONSTER: HOLSTAURUS. Most of the animations are still missing though, sadly.

 -New animations were added for the Butt Stallion, please enjoy them.

 -A tutorial has been added. It's a little crappy, but it'll do for now at least.

 -A terrifying new punishment has been added for too much incest

  1. Been breeding my harpy with her dickwolf son 11 times a day for 2 months. Can't see any "punishment" so far. Unless you count the fact that they don't seem to be giving birth.

    1. The "punishment" happens after a few generations of incest. If your monsters weren't having any children after that long it was probably a bug. It may have been the bug where holstaurus milk made monster infertile, which I fixed in a recent hotfix.

    1. Thanks :P.

      The next update will probably come about two weeks from now. I'm not sure how much content is going to be in it. If there's any big bugs I need to fix those will come first. Soon I'll put up a post on here detailing all the features I plan on having in the game.

  4. It is an excellent game and I hope more creatures and better animation occurs. even multiple animations with the same would be excellent. my favorites is always the stomach bulge kind. one thing for sure I hope that get fixed is the save button, especially for receiving a new update. everytime I receive a new update of the game and start playing i, I have to start the game all over and I hope there is a way to transfer my saved game. I hope this comment works! Love your work!

  5. will there be any futa content?

    You did post this on futanaripalace, after all.

    1. Yes there will be. Probably not for a month or two, though.

  6. Looks pretty neat. Hope to see good stuff comin' from this in the future.
    Couple notes:
    -Tutorial says that using items on monsters increases their stats as well, but doesn't seem to have any effect other than the normal item behavior
    -All m/m combination animations missing
    -Overall nice blend of humor & sexiness :P

    1. (meant to post with the others)
      - Maybe it wasn't implemented yet, but at the end of each month there seems to be nothing to make sure you get 10,000 gil
      - Could possibly be some price adjustments to (perhaps rising need for income) to help scale the game, since I think the current numbers wouldn't really be challenging at all to get 10,000 gil a month after the first couple months

      I'm sure you're already aware of most or all this stuff, just pointing it out.

    2. Using item does increase the stat modifiers, when you breed it will increase the monster stats more

  7. How long will it be before you start implementing a Futa character and adding male/male scenes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Futa is a month or two apparently if you scroll up.

      Male/male no idea, I actually want to know this also. I was hoping for the current males to have animations but it was a big let down when i found out they didn't. Personally just mostly looking forward to the male/male animations.

      (If i made donations, would that help speed up the process on male/male animations? I don't know if you do commissioned animations, or monsters. Something I'm also curious about.)

    2. In the nearish future I'm going to add avenues for people to donate for the addition of specific features that they want.

  8. Are you ever going to host polls on this blog?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Currently I carry out polls on the Legend of Krystal forums, and in the future I intend to have additional donation-based polls (pay for votes, basically) that will carry a lot more weight in regards to what I intend to put in next.

  9. Some anonymous comments as I like the mechanics of this:
    * herp derp is way too weak as a penalty... this is still the easiest route to get all six modifiers beyond light blue
    * Seems that very, very high breeding modifiers are indicated by black plus signs (probably off the color map) - keeping them green would be better
    * I highly recommend to re-roll a monster in the shop whenever it meets a clients demands
    * Early game progression is too random... possible solution: Add a button to refuse a client at the cost of maybe ten percent of your reputation plus a fee similar to the restock feature
    * I think herp-derp triggering could be done much better if you use some genetic fingerprint rather than a counter, maybe just an array of ten random numbers or so. Then you can use inheritance and recombination to get a better representation of genetic variation or deprivation. Should be quite easy to do.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The Gold Client demands list doesn't have a scroll bar, at times making it impossible to see all the demands (specifically, what type of monster they want).

  11. There's two things I would like to see with the game, at the moment at least. The first being the ability to change the name of your livestock after buying/breeding, as it is easy to completely overlook it at then, or simply not want to get attached until they become a bigger part of your breeding program.
    The second thing is I would like to see completion of current creatures be priority over adding new ones. I've seen enough games *cough*CoC*cough* That add a new piece of content but leave big patches of missing scenes, as well as a growing backlog of things to do.

    1. That said, the cowgirl is the best thing ever, can't wait to see the rest of the scenes c:

  12. Why are all of the malexmale scenes missing but the option is there to breed them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just because the malexmale animations haven't been a priority for me yet. Feel free to use your imagination until I get around to adding them :P.

      Delete
    2. How long will it be before you get around to them?

      Delete
  13. I'm somehow addicted to this game. I just love the humor mixed with sexiness mixed with wtf. :P

    I don't suppose you might be interested in an artist helping out with backgrounds, or something? I don't know flash, but I think the backgrounds could use some work and would be happy to paint some up for you. Let me know. (Vera @ FA)

  14. Great work!
    There is a glitch with traits - it can be twice the same.

  15. About the content malexmale, you could make them gangbang the farmer.

    Congratulations for the great game dude.

    1. That's not male/male, he also said he was doing gay scenes, so no.

      Delete
    2. Agreed. Threesomes don't sound like a bad thing, but there's no need to actually replace malexmale scenes with straight scenes.

      It defeats the entire purpose to begin with.

      Delete
  16. Great game, but I've tried pretty much everything I can think of and can't get saves to work. I have the latest flash version and nothing is blocked by firefox as far as I know.
    Keep up the good work!

  17. Looking forward to futa content. :)

  18. Amazing game, probably the most exciting project of its kind on the net. I think that the biggest flaw at the moment is late game balance. The first couple of weeks are great in regards to having the player make intelligent decisions to get by, but after getting a few high stat monsters the challenge disappears pretty quickly. The stat scaling is just way too good, and having 12 actions on a monster that take only 5 minutes or so to carry out, kind of breaks the game to be fair. A couple of possible solutions:
    1. Reduce how much each point affects the monster's attributes.
    2. Make the stat gain slow down at higher levels (so getting from 0 to 1 will be 1000 times easier than getting from 999 to 1000).
    3. Add caps to each stat based on the monster's genes.

    The other major game balance issue is how much incredibly good Holstaurus milk is. Spending money becomes an irrelevant thing of the past after getting one, as in a couple of weeks of breeding you'll be swimming in monsters that have a + in every attribute and two of every trait in the game. Again, I'm not sure exactly how to remedy this but here's a few thoughts:
    1. Change the effect of the milk altogether and add a super expensive fertility drug to the shop as a replacement.
    2. Add a hard cap to how many children a monster can have in a day/week/month.
    3. Scale the effects of milk way down and reduce the stacking bonus.

    It would also be great if you could make two additions to the breed menu: a birth chance percentage and an incest warning, because keeping track of parents can become a real pain.

    Those few minor problems aside, this is looking really great, keep up the awesome work.

    1. Stat caps actually already exist in my own secret personal version of the game :P. I'll look at adding the other stuff you mentioned.

  19. When do you plan to start doing gay scenes?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probably not for a while, but it really depends. The sad truth is that I'm a lot less motivated to make stuff that isn't a personal fetish of mine, however if someone commissions me for them I will gladly push them up on the priority list.

      In regards to how to go about commissioning me, I still haven't set up a system for it. Unfortunately I've been pretty busy lately.

      Delete
    2. That's unfortunate, well i hope you do eventually get around to them.

      Delete
    3. Have you considered doing one gay animation per update? That way you don't have to keep pushing them back and worry about them never being done.

      It's also a small workload to include just one gay animation per update, then when you do finally get around to doing more, you'll already have less to do and the people that want to see it will get something still, despite it being in small doses.

  20. Are you going to announce the winner of those LoK male polls and what you'll include?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, as per the poll Minotaurs, Catboys, and Dragons will all make it into the game. Will not give an ETA on them at all, that's too far into the future. The other stuff could still make it in but only if people make some noise about it.

      Delete
    2. Gotcha, thanks for answering!

  21. Hey Hartista, do you mind if i ask when the next update is going to be? You were saying on the Lok forums something about Sunday but, Sunday has come and gone.

    1. Yeah, that estimate was made before I ran out of stimulants.

      Once I have restocked on stimulants I can give you a better estimate.

      (I literally cannot work on the game without brain pills, it's just how it goes)

    1. Doesn't really matter. I read all of the questions, I just only answer some because I am capricious like that.

    2. Kinda defeats the purpose of asking if there's only a chance of it being answered, doesn't it?

  23. Oh, just realized. Seems like if you start a new game after you've saved one where you've unlocked a bunch of traits, they're still available (was hard to tell at first because there's no way for me to see everything I have unlocked).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So, there's a dirty secret about trait unlocking... There is none. All of the traits are automatically unlocked. If I can get to it today before I release the next version I'm going to put in some unlockable traits.

      Delete
    2. Oh... First time I played I didn't see any 'til I'd done a bunch of silver requests, so I figured they were unlocking X3

      Delete
  24. So uh....how do I get any kind of monster besides the harpy, catgirl and dickwolf? Is it unlocked via reputation or through breeding or what?

  25. is there a part 2
