Small Taste of the New Animation

The Patreon response has been great! 94 people (and counting) have pledged in just these two days. We really appreciate all the support and generosity coming from our fans.

Since a lot of people have been clamoring for a sample of the new animation with S-Purple's monster sprites, here's the new catgirl idle animation I made (still a WIP):


Also, since it hasn't been posted up on this blog yet, here's S-Purple's concept for the female protagonist:

  1. I applaud this newest rendition of our female protagonist for being a bit more realistic to the type of character design you would actually see in a farming sim. Of course their was nothing wrong with your original character design, but in all honesty she looked more like a slutty college girl starring in a redneck porno flick. No offense.

    2. I prefer boobs then flat chests

    3. We don't necessarily know that the female protagonists will be flat chested until we see a nude in-game model in action.

    4. *protagonist*

    5. Don't worry, there will be plenty of big boobs and flat chests both in the game, as we're really trying to expand on body types.

      Later down the road, I'd like to even add the ability to change the main character's breast size, but that's another one of those "distant future" things.

    6. Are there going to be some monsters with smaller/normal sized nipples?

    7. Lol i don't mind small breasts but yeah you know big breast are alway better (for me atleast) so yeah that's why i wrote that i prefer boobs then flat chests thanks for answering me and even writing more about it. It shows us how much you care for us :)

    8. Hi! Just pledged as Nathan P and wanted to comment that the main character's breast size changing thing would be a big deal to me. Also haven't figured out quite how to talk about pledges on Patreon yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually. Anyway, thanks for working on this!

    9. I have to say that while I'm really digging the new art, one thing I really liked about Hbomb's character designs was the huge... everything

    10. One more thing: excellent outfit.

  2. Loving having S-Purple on the team, glad you finally got a pay-for option without dicking around too much on a website. The protag looks really nice, glad to see this game starting to get some steam! The animation looks pretty good for a WIP, hopefully H-Bombs animation skills mixed with S-Purple's art skills match up to make some good sexy stuff

  3. The specification of FEMALE protagonist tells me there'll be options for a male.
    If that's already been announced then I apologize, I don't read every thread in its entirety.
    Hartista, you're not bad, but you really lucked out with S-Purple. I hope he knows how much his art helps.
    Great work to both you guys :)

    1. A male protagonist is something we do want to do in the future (not sure how far in the future).

      Delete
    2. Well hopefully a male protag comes along soon enough. (I'm hoping he's as cute as the female protag concept.)

  4. Honestly I can't believe how quickly people are willing to throw money at you. I enjoy the game and all but honestly after what you pulled development wise last year... yeah I'll hold my money for a few more months to make sure we don't have a huge repeat.

    1. I totally understand people who are reluctant to donate as I've definitely had my fair share of missed deadlines and unannounced absences in the past.

      The way Patreon works is that you pledge money but you are not actually charged until the end of the month, and you are only charged if I have actually released my monthly game update. You can also cancel at any time. Basically you don't have to feel at risk of shafted.

      That said, I have absolutely every intention of not missing another deadline again, and I've been trying hard to both keep you guys better updated and be as consistent as possible. I'm also not doing this alone anymore, which not only means that I have a much easier time getting work done, but I have someone else who is getting a 50% cut of the donations that I have to answer to.

      I definitely encourage people who don't feel comfortable donating yet to hold onto their money and just stick around and watch the game progress over the next few months. I am confident you'll see that we're 100% serious about this.

    2. I can't imagine a better response.
      Not to suggest anyone was trolling so far, but Hartista's post is 100% Troll-Repellant.
      Wait and see, you skeptics. There's no harm in being cautious.
      But when you are satisfied with this project, and you have one dollar of disposable income you don't care about...

  5. I really have to say that I like the direction the new art style is taking. Especially the new female protagonist. That said, the idle animation is going to need some tuning. The cross-legged bowing that you've got going on looks really unnatural. You should pick a leg direction, have both legs face that direction, then have her shimmy. It would look a lot more natural. Also, the upper half of the body generally doesn't stay static during a movement like that. You've got to counterbalance, which forces the upper body to sway slightly the opposite direction.

    All in all, I applaud what you're doing and mean nothing I say as anything other than as helpful critique.

    1. I absolutely appreciate critiques like this. I'm definitely taking your suggestions into mind.

    2. is it just me or does the crotch area on the catgirl in the animation seem a little weird.

      Delete
    3. Crotch needs a bit o fur, but not too much. Save the bald look for the ones with neoteny. Other than that, +1 on Frederick's comments, and another thing to consider is animating the tail as well. A cat's tail is useful for 2 things, counterbalance and mood indication. I know it may be a bit much to ask, but you may want to check out some of those disgustingly cute cat videos with an eye for cat movement and physiology.

    4. Missed this before, but...
      I just noticed that the way the animation is working at the upper thighs makes the catgirl look like she is wearing furry thigh-high boots instead of those legs really being a part of her. Is there a practical way to make the skin stretch there instead of sliding past?

      Delete
  6. Excellent art update, thank you. Been worried about how the female player character new looks might turn out - but unfoundedly! Very, very nice. The new catgirl idle is also well done! Hope you two will get a lot of support. I am considering to pledge, too.

  7. Animating style is better then i guessed... I thing when the updates started you will get more money.. I will give some too.. you earned it..

    But need some little expressions...

  8. Thats looking realy nice, i like this new art style.

    I just have one concern. Please dont neglect the climax animations! There was a few missing in the older versions so im worried it will happen again :P

    Thanks any way though this game is great.

  9. I would love to see the catgirls with bigger chests or thicker hips.. the cowladies need futas.. as well as the harpies. . And give the futas balls..

    1. Agreed on everything but no futa balls pls

  10. are we going to be seeing the monsters' expressions change during sex scenes? as an idle animation i think this is looking good so far (though i certainly agree with frederick d's critiques!), and i wouldn't expect the facial expression to change during the idle animation, but it always threw me off a little that the monsters were quite unflinching even while taking a foot-long dick up their hoo-hah. just one thing i would love to see if it's possible! :) i understand it's a little more challenging than giving the protag varied facial expressions, considering the monsters won't all have the same face, but in the future it'd be an excellent touch. i'd even be happy with a little less facial variety to start off if it meant more expression in the existing faces.

  11. This, is fricken awesome, I almost jumped up and started humping the female protag through my screen. Much more realistic then that last one, who honestly looked horribly out of place.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Funny you mention it, because I was in the process of writing down all the facial expressions I want S-Purple to draw for the different features so that I can do facial animation for the monsters.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ooo actually not bad, some fears are being nullified now. Also I think I can see how coloration can be done since you've broken the model into individual pieces and as such palettes can be put over them to induce color variation in breeds.

    Nipples are still disgusting looking but I guess that is a personal preference.

  14. By now i am kinda curious, what are the different Catgrils going to look like?

    Also while i really like the new version of the breeder i still would like a male protagonist, as someone that could knock up some of the female monsters, or maybe you could intake some of the harvested items yourself, but then again i can always play corruption of champions if i need that itch scratched

  15. catgirl is great, would be so sexy if the tail moved tho (like a cats)

    1. Absolutely. I'll be contacting everyone who pledged for a custom content tier very soon.

  17. *laugh* Her vag looks all swolen up like she just got pounded for 5 hours straight. Is that intentional? I love the way the arm movement flows with the legs, though I agree with earlier comments about the way the flesh part of the legs seems to slide in and out of the fur part (like a pair of boots).

    Still, the new protagonist is positively gorgeous. Please find an excuse to use those close-ups of her face, they are simply beautiful.

  18. Please make a male protagonist! That would make this game 1000x awesomer in my book.

  19. Just Awesome!!!!! Perfect main char!!!!

  20. The eyes feels a little weird.
    As if they're not moving along with the head.

  21. i have to say i like the old female protagonist better, she did you like a poor back water breeder, and it fights the loco where the farm is, but i wouldnt mind both female protagonists, we can pick the 1 we want when the game starts

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm really loving these. Especially the new look of the female protagonist. I think the look captures the idea of someone working at a farm.
