Progress Update and New Voting System

I'm back from being out-of-town for Thanksgiving, and ready to start digging in. The next game update will be released on Friday 12/6, likely around 11:00 PM PDT. The options menu, elves, demons, futanari catgirls, and a couple male/male animations will be in it. The options menu will allow you disable sex animations by category (m/f, m/m, or f/f), as well as allow you to turn off visual changes for neoteny, futanari, and pregnancy. Note that this will not affect gameplay, only visuals: if you turn off futanari, the futa catgirls will look like normal catgirls and have normal catgirl animations, but they'll still have the futa trait and be able to produce offspring with female monsters.

As for the new website I'll keep you updated as to when you can expect to see it, but in the meantime I'll post up a description of the new system so that I can get some feedback:

Membership:

For $5 you will be able to purchase a one year Breeding Season membership. Everyone who has already donated to me will be given a free membership, and I'll continue to hand out memberships to people who are significant contributors to the game (like Ironvein, for instance). Let me be perfectly clear: the game is still 100% free and will remain that way forever, and all further updates I make to the game will be released for free. However, members will get some significant benefits:

  • Early access to updates: I will post updates to the game in the members-only section exactly one month before releasing them to the public
  • Access to the development blog: I will update the dev blog three times a week with detailed info on game development progress and my future plans
  • Access to the breeding season suggestion forums, which will be a members-only forum where you can post up suggestions for game changes and additions
  • 100 free voting points every month (voting points explained below)
Also, there are features in development that will be available to members once they're finished:
  • Access to "debug mode" codes that will allow you to grant yourself money, change monster's stats, and give your monsters specific traits, among other things
  • Access to a daily development stream so you can watch me making the game live

Voting System:

The system is based on spending “voting points” to comission features for the game.You can purchase voting points from me. Basically $10 is 1000 points. People who donated to me previously but did not get the features they donated on included in the game yet will be given points equivalent to how much they donated.

Features are small, self-contained, and very specific additions to the game. An example might be “Male Elf on Harpy Breeding Animation” or “The Marquis’ Mansion Exploration Area”. There will always be a comprehensive description of what will be included with that feature (basically, far more specific and detailed than before).

Each feature will have a “Base Cost” of points that have to be spent on it in order for it to get added to my “To-do List”. The base cost is based on the amount of time it will take me to include that feature in the game, multiplied by my labor rate of $15 (1500 points) per hour. So, as an example: “Male Elf on Harpy Breeding Animation” is a sex animation that will take me two hours to make, therefore it will cost 3000 points to add it to the “To-do List”. Any number of people can contribute to paying the base cost: if you want to just add 100 points and leave it to someone else to pay the rest you can do so. As soon as the base cost is paid the feature will be added to the To-do List.

My To-do List will be a list including all of the features that are slated to be added to the game. Each week I will take the top 20 hours worth of features and work on adding them to the game that week. Once a feature is on the To-do List, you can continue to spend points on it in order to give it a higher priority for addition to the game. Features with more points will be higher on the To-do List, and will be added to the game first over others. For some features, once a certain number of points are added to the feature there will be additional time and quality added to it: For instance, for a sex animation, if the points spent on it exceed 6000 I will spend twice as much time on it and try to make it a higher quality animation than usual, possibly involving multiple positions.

Every two weeks, the last two weeks worth of features will be released with my newest version of the game. If a feature that should have gone into a release fails to make it in that week’s release for any reason, I will refund a quarter of the points spent on it and add the feature to the next week’s release. If a feature misses two months worth of releases, I will refund all of the points spent on it.

I want to be clear that unlike the donations I took previously, I consider the new system to be an actual commission, and I will make myself contractually obligated to meet stated deadlines. Points that are returned to you due to any failure on my part to meet deadlines will be eligible to be refunded for cash.

I know that previously I had difficulty keeping to deadlines and keeping fans updated. My living situation has changed significantly, and the new system is based on the things I've learned from my mistakes working on the game previously; I'm very confident that the structure of the new system will allow me to deliver updates on time. The new Features are set up in distinct chunks and I can easily predict how long they will take me to do, and the system is designed to keep me from biting off more than I can chew. I'm also going to be far more dedicated to keeping up regular blog postings to keep you all updated. If you're not sold yet, just keep checking in as over the next few weeks I intend to demonstrate a consistent update schedule based on the system.

  1. Early access is fine. However, an entire month seems a little excessive. I think the maximum that you should make people wait for finished content is 2 weeks.

    2. It would seem to me that the 'early access' just lets a core group of subscribers go in and find all the bugs in it. So that the public release has as little bugs/problems as possible.

      A month seems perfectly reasonable considering all the actual coding/drawing/etc is mostly done by ONE person.

      I'm still inclined to think HBomb is putting more pressure on himself than he should, but we'll see how it plays out.

      Good Luck Hartista.

  2. question re earlyaccess / point returns if a player spends mony to vote but not become a member and it takes 1 month and 2 weeks of work befor it hits free users would you not constantly be refunding points because its still a month for free users so technikly its fails to release in the first 2 weeks as a free user or am i mis understanding

  4. having a yearly fee for access to debug mode is kind of unfair and the time and energy you would put into it to try and prevent people sharing the game online would be better spent on the game itself

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm, I kinda with you on that one. It'd seem like Hbomb would need to make two versions of the game (on debug, on without). I'd be concerned that when debugging, that Hbomb would fix one and not the other. Plus it could introduce any number of bugs when interacting with each version (save file carryover and such). Adding a layer of complication that isn't necessary.

      But until this sort of thing goes live, there's no telling how it'll play out.

      Delete
    2. There will only be one version of each release. The debug mode will be accessed through a code that will change with each version update, and I will post up the code for members to see. There's nothing to stop them from sharing the codes with non-members; only that I ask that they don't. It's supposed to be a reward for players who are helping to support the game.

    4. Well. CoC was a good and fun thing. I guess if HBomb will start to add some memorable characters and locations to explore with a lot of different monsters, like succubus, jelly girls, plants and midget goblins with their daughters...

      Hartista... Totally add the feature of neoteny being able to have threesomes and shit. With both having a chance to get pregnant. You'll totally make millions after you combine it with a male player character.

  5. Worth to create a blogger account I guess now, to have myself notified by email when you update. :'D
    The system is a bit ambitious, but I guess, since I'm sitting here since http://swfchan.net/14/XKJSKR0.shtml I could as well finally add my penny to the charity.

    Love your game and would love to see you prosper with it.

    I was surprised at some points of your post, but hey. Your game- your rules. Some motivation will never harm the crowd.

    We had a bit of a conversation with Ironvein in your last post at the beginning of December. Can you comment the flow of thoughts please? And I would like to hear your opinion on the ideas. You haven't been talking with us for quite a while. :''D

    6. I'm just like it to be in balance I guess. But it's up to HBomb.

      And yes... I wish to see fucking angels.

      In my opinion the herm version will be fine to with them aswell. The angels are said to be herms anyway. I think they fit in just in general.

  6. hm after i read this 2 times i can realy understand why u want to do it in this direction hartista...
    i have no doubt against it but just one thing is a bit risky...

    if u do something like the "debug-option" and for this option that more money and such things for voting-points
    than u need to do an second game like Ironvein mentioned...
    even if u dont need to do an second game with that option than u have to do it on ur website so that no one can download it or something like that because all of us know that there will be crackers with such skills that they can easily do what they want with that game and upload it...(piracy) and after all that voting-system will be shit..

    so i hope u know what u need to do...i just said this because i want it to be fair..i will donate for it for sure even if u dont have an strategy against that but i just wanted u to keep it in mind.

    1. He's been to 4chan. He knows what are risks. :D
      But I guess we have learned from CoC that a frequently updated game dosen't stick around the /f/ to much. There is no point of loading down an bugged update anyway, so yeah, piracy is not something I think HBomb should be afraid about. But that is just my opinion on things. I can be wrong.

      Delete
    2. I don't think this is really an issue. The final product is free anyway, so even if some hacker decided to upload somewhere else than there is no issue. However, HBomb may want to add a warning that 'if you had to pay to play, then you were ripped off.' Otherwise its free advertising.

      A thought though: If the player 'wins' the game, he should be rewarded with password to debug. That should stem attempts to steal, beg, or otherwise be very annoying.

      Delete
    3. Agree with Ironvein. To make things more complicated- not a password, but a point in the save. So people won't share the pass. Make people really play it, rather than go searching for a password.

      Delete
    4. i like ur thoughts something like that would do it...better would be that u get an password that only get along with ur account so that others have an other password than u or something like that

      Delete
    5. That would require HBomb to manage the database the holds all that account info; while it'd be more secure, its a little too paranoid and too much work for a free game. Eventually HBomb will move on to other projects and then everyone would be screwed.

      Delete
  7. I like the whole idea of having a subscriber/member system, but don't you think your kind of penalizing those who enjoy you game but either don't want to or can't spend the money? I mean a whole month? You're going to lose a lot of support with that alone.

    I can understand restricting voting to members, it seems like a solid system to get the most wanted updates out faster, but pushing updates back for those who don't (or can't) pay in is kind of counter-intuitive. And yes I did read Ironvein's comment on it as a way to find an fix bugs easier, but surely a week or two is enough to find the game breaking bugs.

    As a side note, what is the point of having a voting system when you have "access to the breeding season suggestion forums, which will be a members-only forum where you can post up suggestions for game changes and additions?"

    Sorry if I seem greedy, but after the whole "2 months, no word fiasco," delayed updates is a little worrying. Sorry if I am missing the point here.

    Replies
    1. He did mention that he was playing to provide free memberships to those who contribute in other ways (thx btw HBomb :).

      Besides, with a month to work on it; the updates will be more substantial than a weekly one with only one, or two new things. Giving it more replay value to try other things.

      Debugging is a fickle thing, a fix could easily lead to breaking something else and then there's the rare and hard to duplicate bugs (like the immunity failure bug). It takes as long as it takes.

      I think Hbomb intended the voting system to set the 'priority' of the features to be worked on, the forums will probably be filled with ideas (good and bad) in no particular order. The voting is for deciding the most popular ideas to work on first.

      The overall idea, is that he plans to have a public update out monthly on a regular basis. The 'early access' participants are just the testbed for the 'finished product'.

      Delete
    2. Then for the love of god, keep the update a surprise. Because if you start revealing what will be only there in 30 days, then it's going to be torture for most of us.
      I'm fine with all the advantages really, except the one that delays update. I kind of see your justification, but I still think it's a bad idea. But I guess we'll see.

      Delete
    3. I suggest making the update available when the members will say that it's ready. I doubt that there is a point in holding the update back if there are no bugs found. Same goes if there is too much bugs. The "Month between members and all" should be a deadline for HBomb him self, not for the fans. Furthermore, what is the point of adding new feature to the game if it's broken at current state.

      But, once there are more features, a month will be a reasonable time I guess. Right now there is not enough to keep average people interested. I doubt even 10 different people visit the blog on a regular basis right now. HBomb needs to get his lovers back with new stuff like terraria tries to.

      Delete
    4. @Juras I am the Anon who posted this comment originally. I agree 100% with your suggestion, instead of having in be a month, why doesn't HBomb just include a button that the playtesters can press when they think the game update is ready to release to non-subscribers? It would erase the worry of waiting an entire month, and the update would be random and relatively bug-free like a lot of other fans want.

    1. The membership will be tied to your e-mail address, and be made for the same e-mail that was associated with your paypal account. If this will end up causing trouble for any donors, they can contact me by e-mail and I can get it straightened out for them.

  10. even though I enjoy the game very much I think I will keep my $5 dollars in my pocket for now. reason being is what is to say in a month more or less that Hbomb vanishes again, porn games have a habit of burning out in a bright light. its very easy to get bored with creating the game and need a break or just want to make something new.

    Haha one MONTH? Ive been a fan of you and your work Hartista, but withholding a updates for 30 days is excessive. Might as well forget about the game untill next year at that rate. I understand your doing it for free and ive been patient during your absence as life conditions didnt permit you to work on it at all. I implore you to reconsider, perhaps change it to a week instead of over three weeks? Im sure your already members and people willing to donate regardless dont mind at all and will defend you, but this is sure to be unpopular with the uncharitable population.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Obviously, you did not read the plan in its entirety. If you pay, you get access as things are made. If you don't then you wait a month that goes into debugging the new feature so it doesn't blow up when you try it.

      Delete
    2. And I think you're a bit too optimistic, which probably goes hand-in-hand with your free membership.

      If membership gives you access to a "Beta", when will HPB decided that the release is "stable enough" to be held back for a month, edited, and released to the public?

      Will he even bother releasing the game at the right time, or will he only concern himself with his members?

      Will he even release updates consistently enough to the members to validate your "beta tester" stance?

      Hell, will he even update the game at all? Coming back after a long disappearing act with a new payment plan after one small update does not create a trustworthy image, even with the carry-over from the previous plan.

      Delete
    3. Dude I'm pretty you didn't read that last part. Obviously he has already been unreliable he can't really deny or change that, but he's not asking anyone to give him money with no proof hes actually doing things. He will obviously update the free users because if he doesn't it is less likely that anyone new would donate money without see the game progress at all. He asking us to watch for now and he'll show that this game has a high priority for him now by updating. He already has a list of features that are to be added to the game just wait and see how that goes.

      Wow got a bit long there. Anyway programming isn't easy it takes time and there are constantly bugs popping up after every change a month is pretty reasonable for bug fixing.

      Delete
  12. I love your ideas Hartista! I got in when the donation box went down last time. I have always been wanting to donate but found myself unable too. $5 for me is a little low when I see how much work you have already put into this game. (I am a programmer by trade) I will definitely get that membership and throw some more in support of the game. Don't give up on this game! It is truly a great one :).

  13. Avoiding this until I actually see some consistent updates for once. It's easy to make and post plans, but following through with them is quite a bit more difficult, as we've seen with this project in the past.

  14. Anonymous agrees that you should show us some progress Harista. Who knows, maybe you are rusty already and our hopes are false. Show us futanari dickwolves ( something simmilar to catgirls) , and one anon will become a "strong member". Understand as you want.

  15. " Hey guys! Remember I promised a big update at the start of next week? Well get ready for... just kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  16. So for 5 bucks a year you have one year Beta access in which you have fresh updates with bugs and a more direct way to give input. Then after a month you have a bug free update for the masses.
    Seems fair but if a nonmember puts 3k points in his animation of choice he will only get it after a month. So nearly all input will be from fans. Decent system but I think a gradual increase in the lag between members and nonmembers will avoid alienating the ones that still don't completely trust you.

  19. 5$ is completely acceptable for beta access,
    however that only if you actually provide content, I would suggest to first finish at least some of the already well donated features like neoteny, futanari & male on male animations to show people that this project is really back to life.
    also I would have dropped the "debug mode" thing: it is already pretty easy to get stats/money with cheat engine,
    but it would be nice if there would be a sandbox mode after completing the game,
    maybe just give premium members unlock code to get it instantly.

    in short just show that you are ready to deliver content (and actually finish features) and it would make a better ground for you to sell memberships.

    1. Agreed. Harista, you owe us more 2 months of progress already. Show us some love and finish the futanari and elves before thinking about any payed membership.

      Delete
    2. Harista doesn't OWE anyone ANYTHING. Before you were DONATING money, there is no obligation on his part to provide a product. The only fault he has was putting the stupid poll up, giving a false impression that they were paying for features.

      Programming isn't something you throw together on whim and works perfectly at its inception. Most games take TEAMS of programmers MONTHS just to get something test worthy.

      You Anons bitching about the lack of contact and general untrustworthiness probably have not donated anything anyway; it's not about YOU.

      HBomb has no real obligation to you and COULD just drop it entirely, you bitching at him IS NOT HELPING.

      Instead he's offering a form of compensation and apology. Will it work, who knows? He's putting alot on himself (too much in my opinion) and now you bitch when he is actually doing something. This is something he does in his FREE TIME, downing him like this will just demotivate him further.

    3. im all for this but the whole keeping track on updates is a issue.
      Example: "Early next week I'll have the Options menu working, Elves, some Male/Male animations, Demons, and the Futanari trait working for catgirls. Most of this stuff is actually already in the files, it's just that I didn't have the time to get it all working before Thanksgiving snuck up on me, sorry about that."
      his words not ours, and sadly he didnt go through with his word. i dearly hope that changes

      Delete
    4. I agree with Ironvein, but accept the viewpoint of anon also. No one is talking about real money dept. Two and a half months ago we were indeed waiting for the stuff HBomb still didn't release. It's not about "He didn't accept payment. Only donations". It's more about the fact that people still don't see him doing anything yet.

      I suggest anon to wait. Despite that he missed another estimated deadline, I guess there is no point for him to making the new voting system if he isn't going to do shit. I have to do sometimes assembler language programming, so I can agree that shit never comes out the way you want it to, despite knowledge and skill. HBomb did say he isn't a master and needs some help with both drawing and programming. I admire that he still fights for the game.

      So anon. You are all-powerful, all-mighty and eternal. Please be patient as well...

  20. Harista, I'm glad to see you are back in a position to work on the project. I really enjoy this game.

    I can't believe how many people are crying about these proposed systems. If you aren't getting a membership, you aren't contributing but you're still getting the full game. Pull your thumb out of your mouth and be grateful that someone is being so generous with their time.

    The fact that a robust system is being put in place to support and contribute probably means that in the long run this project will become much more fully realized and polished and that is a great thing. Is there a chance this won't happen? Of course. Nothing is tying Harista to this project, but my $5 or $10 or $100 is a reasonable incentive for him to keep working on it. And for the love of god, please don't try to make the argument that you can't buy a membership. The only way that's possible is if you are either too young to be playing the game anyway or you're too poor to own a computer.

    1. I disagree with you, not saying I don't have the money to help Harista out or buy a membership if this system is put into play, however there are people out there who live under very financially constricting living conditions and may not have the spare money to spend on a game that they would prefer to spend on say... food? Electric meter? I'm just saying that there is a lot more in this world than you obviously know of.

      That said however I can fully see why people are sick of seeing "I can't afford $5!" and thinking they are either tight with their cash or too young to be here. Yes these people are most likely cheap leeches looking for a free hand-out but not all of them are.

      That's my input! Take it or leave it, I don't care :)

  23. As a suggestion for monster type scaling: Butt Stallions and Holstaurus should switch prices. You're capped to five male monsters at a time until you get Stallions, at which point your female monster cap has already tripled(technically, you have 16 if you count yourself.) Holstaurus's already have the most valuable consumable in the game, so it stands to reason that they should be closer to end game than the monster with the worst consumable.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think the prices as they are were just arbitrary decisions at the time; they'll probably change as time goes on.

      I do agree with you that Milk is currently the best consumable by far, but if we are talking balance based off consumables that the starter pens ought to be Harpies and Stallions. By the time one needs or gets around to getting those pens, you probably have breed some 'clean' breeders (i.e. no negative modifiers) and have little use for their consumables except on a one-to-one basis. If those were the starters, then their consumables would be very useful at the start of the game.

      Delete
    2. Actually I think Catgirls are the best for a first start, because if you think about it their consumables are literally almost useless.
      Using Catgirl Squirts you use a consumable... to be able to use another consumable. It's like wishing for one more wish - the net effect is nothing (except, of course, a small bonus to modifiers). This makes Catgirls' consumables useful really just for selling for extra early scrap - which in the early game is okay, because getting money is hard at that point and selling is more of a prime option (Harpy Grease at least helps you sooomehow by using it). Dickwolf Jizz is much more valuable to use on your monsters when harvesting because it actually lets you do more breeding in the end. Probably more useful than Stallion Cum... but I think it's sorta needed in the early game, because it starts off really slow.
      So I think it's fine the way it is, aside from maybe Holstauri being cheaper than Stallions.

    3. Cat gril squirts increase your breeding modifiers, which is a useful ability to have very early because its hard to get monsters with no negative traits. They allow you to buffer negative traits. They have their niche, and its already filled pretty welll

  24. The last system was a "donation" system only in name, to avoid the legal problems of accepting money for a loli/bestiality game. When you tell someone "Spend money, get content", it's not a donation system because people are expecting content back for their money/purchase. He said that he'd take the highest features and put them in game every month, that clearly did not happen.

    Just be careful guys, know that if you spend money on this, you may never get what you were promised. Maybe Hartista isn't an asshole, but he's at least shown that he's extremely unreliable. Hopefully that changes around as I'd like to see this project continue.

    2. It was entirely my fault for not being clear about my intentions with the donation system previously. I had never intended it to be taken as a commission, and due to me explaining the system poorly I absolutely gave people the wrong idea.

      This new system will NOT be donations, but an actual honest-to-god commission system. That is to say, the purchase will be contractually and legally binding. As part of the membership agreement you will be signing a contract, and if I do not fulfill my side of the contract, you can actually take me to court.

  25. So how will you know whether or not someone has donated to you, Hartista? I ask because a friend of mine donated from a random PayPal account and follows this a lot, but I dunno how you would be able to get membership to him.

    1. I have a database of the names, amounts, and paypal e-mail addresses of everyone who donated to me. I'll be tying the memberships to e-mail addresses, but if this won't work for anyone who donated to me they should go ahead and e-mail me at HartistaPipebomb@gmail.com with the full name tied to the paypal account they used and the amount they donated along with the e-mail that they'd like to have their membership associated with.

  26. Hmm seems like a risky move make HBomb. I'm not downing you or anything but you have diapered a few times be for and now coming up with a membership its not going to sit wall with everyone. Still 5$ for a year is far.We will see how it goes down the road be for I go for it. as some others may do the same.

    1. I totally understand any reservations people have towards getting a membership, as I've definitely had problems meeting deadlines and staying up-to-date with my blog in the past. I would suggest that anyone who is worried about whether or not I'll be able to keep up with my goals this time just go ahead and keep checking in on the site over the next few months before making a decision on getting a membership, as I intend to demonstrate that I can be very consistent.

    1. ^ Long story short.

      It's Friday harista. No elves, no futanari - no membership. Show us your word is worth atlest 5 bucks. It sucks when you lose someone's fate.
      If Ironvein is not harista's bot, he should agree that this is just a new beggining to the old story. Nothing is happening.

      He promised to be far more dedicated with keeping us updated of his status. What was he refering to? The old "once a week" or the new "two monts later"?

      Either way, I doubt that he will put the promised "early this week update". Or anything that will make me eager to try the game out again right now, after playing it for hours.

      Prove me I'm fucking wrong Harista. I fucking dare you.

      Delete
    2. If you missed it Harista said that the Friday update will be at 11:00pm PDT... He's got a fair few hours until his self-imposed deadline for this particular update.

      Delete
    3. I'm still waiting. You should always give a person a chance to finish everything in his own deadline. I'm just placing my view on the situation from the beginning of the day.

      I believe in Harista and apologize if my statement was a bit harsh, but the "voting system update" was not something I was waiting on Monday. So I just place my expectations here to refer to myself in my mind.
      I am anon. I don't expect Harista to respect me, or even read my posts, but this goes the other way around as well.

      Yes. It's a free game. And no, we don't want Harista to dump it. But I beg him to warn us if he is dumping it. Or at least try. If he wants respect to his time, he should have some respect for other people's time as well.

      When I have a deadline in university, I do everything in the last 24 hours. Don't sleep. Come to uni. Get a mark and go sleep for 18 hours. So I don't understand Harista with his inability to stick to the deadline and give us at least something.
      But... respect to you Harista. I wish you to be reasonable with your time.

    5. Hahaha, patience children, patience.

      The update will be up at around 11:00 PM PDT. It doesn't look like there's going to be any major delays.

      You guys need to take life a little easier, eh? Not everything is worth getting so worked up about. I appreciate that you guys care enough about the game to have this much emotional investment in it, but try to keep your heads on.

  29. Concerned "Customer"December 6, 2013 at 1:15 PM

    A couple of things here
    1. This game is turning into a game called clone wars adventures...and no i am not promoting the game in any way here...

    download clone wars adventures at https://www.clonewarsadventures.com/
    DO NOT get a jedi membership
    go to games and look around some of the planets like coruscant and felucia
    It is a completely free game but in order to get the extra content you have to PAY them not what you call "donating"
    2. If you want my donation please post updates atleast every 2-4 days like another game call mario is missing Peach's untold tale(MIM PUT) by aedler... i am happy to donate to him because one it gives him more time to work on the game and two hes been doing the game for a year-or-so now.
    3. All i really want you to do if you want me to donate is
    1. post updates faster and not two weeks(i understand you took a week off for Thanksgiving that's is completely understandable) so about every 3-6 days would be nice
    2. and don't call it donating unless if its the same content and there is nothing special to it(mainly for your own sake if some idiot on the world wants to take you to court or have a complete arguement over this),

    1. Yes, it will likely be a week or two until I get the membership system up and running, and even after I do that I will probably still do simultaneous public releases for a few weeks just to let people who have reservations about getting a membership see a consistent release schedule.

  32. A question for you, if you don't mind HartistaPipebomb?

    You see, I find your game rather interesting. It has a lot of new ideas and a lot of possibilities. However its very early in development. Now I understand you would like funding/donations as well as voting from members to determine what to add in the future. And although I could consider learning your vote system I would much rather have a more direct approach. So my questions are:

    Do you want suggestions for your game?

    And if so where would you prefer to receive suggestions? Here? Via Votes? Personally I would much rather send you a mail or a message, but that is up to you of course.

    Best regards

    2. Every third of us is a hentai game god Setep. I've seen hundreds of such "mavens" on this blog already. Just get your money ready once the voting/suggesting system is back up yet. For now we are waiting for 1)demons/elves 2)options 3)futanari 4)male character.
      And it will take some months for Hartista to finish that at this work rate...

    3. I see... Well I thank you for your responses. Most informative. However I'm not simply trying to give my view of the game or suggest what the next "animal" would be. I want to give my full range of ideas to him and then leave. It will be his choice to either use the information or not. I don't care for the voting system or lines. It takes to long time for the maker, not only to set up but also for people to vote, then he decide whether that vote is accurate or not. Maybe a parameter is forgotten or.... never mind I'm rambling.

      My point is.. If the maker of a game wants players input, but not to a degree that they can change anything more than his choices (such as a voting system). Then its not a choice at all and the maker only wants a clue on what to work on next, not an actual advice.

      I want to give more than that.

      But I digress... Its his choice

      Best regards.

  33. Minor Request. If you are going to release something so late on the day for most people, could just say you are going to release it the next day? Since about 75% of time zones are already on Saturday if you release it Friday 11pm PST. (might slow down some complaining as well.)
    Although in your shoes, I would say every release was going to take the greater of 2 weeks or 2x longer than I expected, then release it when it is ready, especially if it is before the timeline's end. -The Scotty Principal of Engineering
