Status Update

The website has been a pain in the ass, but I've made significant headway on it and should have something to show you guys soon. I'm going to go ahead and put up a test version of the website that you guys can sign up as temporary members on and screw around with just to make sure it works correctly. Not sure if it will be before Christmas, but I'd like it to be.

As for the game update, you can expect it sometime tomorrow, I'm shooting for around 3:00 PM, but so I don't have to eat my words I'll say before 10:00 PM PST. There will be some animations (some M/M and some M/F), lots of bug fixes, and a bit of gameplay rebalancing. I don't think you'll need to reset your saves, but regardless on the next version I'll have a money cheat code for convenience with testing it (which will be replaced with debug mode in later versions).

EDIT:
I would say to expect the update around 5:00 PM PST. Not positive it will be then, but it will be between then and 10.

  1. Very nice to hear about the website and I hope we can mess around on it soon.

    I'm looking forward to the new version tomorrow and I hope it goes well.

    Best of luck.

  2. I would still want some more encouragement from you about the "pay for beta's of a beta game".

    As you have yet to prove anyone could trust you, I would recommend you to use a payment method that is retractable.

    I don't want you running with my money and coming back begging for more when it runs out, like you did last time.

    1. I've always offered refunds to donors, and there are individuals who can attest to the fact that I did refund their money when they asked.

      I will offer refunds with the new system too if, for any reason, I fail to keep up my end of the bargain. Purchases and refunds will be handled by a third party, and any money you give me will be subject to the terms of a legally binding agreement that will be clearly laid out.

      That all said, I strongly encourage anyone who has doubts to just hold onto your money and observe over the next couple of months before deciding to buy a membership or put money into the game, as I do fully intend to demonstrate a consistent release schedule and that I have every intention of sticking to the schedule I've laid out for myself.

    2. well I may stick around for a month or 2 as a trial, we will see how it goes. a quick question, will the new site have an rss feed?

    3. how will the payments show up on our accounts though? I personally do not have a bank account yet and am working on it so it will go through my mom's account and I really don't want her poking around judging XP

    4. Right now I'm talking to CCBill about handling the transactions, but even if I don't ultimately go with them it will be a company that works similarly: you'll just get a generic statement that refers to the billing company and a transaction id, nothing else. So you don't have to worry about "BREEDING CATGIRL WOLF FUCKING" or what-not showing up on your credit card statement :P.

      As far as RSS feeds: the members-only blog will be a wordpress site, so setting up RSS will be fairly easy. I'm not sure how RSS interacts with login protected content, though, (I have very little experience with it) so I'll have to look into that.

    5. Its funny how you say he took the money and ran and only came back when it had run out seeing as he could prob make the same amount of money he got from this after less than few weeks working at a minimum wage job. I'm pretty sure what has been published so far has added up to much more time spent working on it than he would have spent working for that amount of money at any job so I really don't see an incentive to use this as a quick cash grabbing scam.

    6. Damn, b00marrows...

      You really need to learn how NOT to sound (type?) like a complete douche-nozzle. At least every once in awhile.

    7. Hey guys, please be respectful to each other. Even if you disagree with each other I'd prefer if you didn't use insults.

  3. Appreciate the update, looking forward to the patch and the website!

  4. Thank you for the update, H.

    I really don't know how you so patiently and politely answer some of the dickheads who post here.

    As always, thanks for sharing your hobby with us.

  5. Woot update! Good stuff, looking forward to the website for sure.

  6. Just want to say that you'll have my support, H-Bomb. Sure you miss deadlines sometimes but I understand that animation, coding, etc.. as well as making a website from scratch can involve hiccups and unforeseen issues!

    Besides, among all the h-games I play this is the only one I truly follow frequently and I feel like a kid at Christmas every update I see here. Keep up the amazing work!

  7. you = sex!

  8. Do you still intend to make a male PC option?

    1. It'll be in the voting system, but it will be a pretty serious undertaking. Lots of things I'll have to rework in order to get it in. Granted, it's something I want to do eventually anyway.

    2. Maybe as a suggestion to 'step up' to that... maybe hiring hands to your ranch to help out (both m/f). They can be assigned roles and such so you can multitask more in the game as the number of monsters grow larger. Then with the 'hired hands' code you can just replace the girl with a player generated 'hand'.

  9. Thanks for the update Hpbomb!
    Do you have any plans to put orcs and x-ray in the game?

    1. He probably will, but the ranch is getting pretty full now. He's got enough now in the core that he really ought to work on the actual game. Extra monsters at this point is just that, extra.

  10. I'd really like to see the game develop more so i'm planning to buy myself a membership and around 250-1000 voting points (if paying 2,50$ correct.) But i have another question too will the membership payment be by paypall?

    Anyway Thanks for the update

    1. PayPal doesn't allow adult content to be linked or whatever. Heaps of dev's had to go to other places, which then changed their mind as well.
      For some reason they don't want to be involved in any way with adult content. Which is kinda stupid.

      Looking forward to the new updates. Does any one else have the problem of the intro messing up as soon as the second chick shows up? The white faced bitch whatever her name is.

  11. Can i ask:

    -In what programing language the game is written?

    1. The game is made in Flash, it's all coded in ActionScript 3.0.

  12. Are one of the fixes gonna fix demons they only seem to have +wil and +fer, its rather rare to see them with anything else

    1. Really, it's been a pain to find one like that for me. I have noticed that sometimes all the monsters follow a particular attribute bonus (i.e. every monster would get CHA + for example), random number generation is a fickle thing.

      Delete
  13. May I make a suggestion, H-Bomb? Instead of adding new content to the game (like the elves from the last one) perhaps you should focus on completing what you already have?
    Keep working on the game mechanics the way you already are, that progress seems to be just fine but maybe make alternating updates for mechanics and animations;

    1 week - Animation for existing characters (Futa Catgirl + Trainer, Demon + Catgirl, etc...)
    Next week - Mechanic/Story tweaking (Bug fixes, story progression, etc...)

    I only suggest this so you can organize your time better around what you want to accomplish for each update, trying to slam in as much as possible each time is just going to be more stressful and put more pressure on you to complete things to a strict deadline, and it might help keep some of the less-than-patient follows off your arse while you're trying to juggle all this stuff.

    Just an idea :)

    1. Agreed, you've got enough 'basic' stuff that you can move on to story development. Finish up what you got before moving on.

  14. I wrote a long reply to this that accidentally got deleted, but suffice it to say that there's reasons why I've done things in the order that I have. I'll try to write a long blog post later that will explain more of where I'm going next with the game.
