Tiny Update

Dwolla continues to look promising, but it will be a while until I know if it will work out for sure.

On another note, no my artist didn't change, he would just prefer to be known as S-Purple from now on in conjunction with this game. Like myself, he's not keen on having his adult and non-adult work too closely associated with each other, as I think everyone can understand.

  2. I for one am loving the art change. And thankful for the time you guys are spending on this.

  3. You're doing a fair job of keeping us informed.
    That's is the way to increase confidence and get $$$.
    You have our attention.

  4. If Dwolla doesn't work out can you not just finish Breeding Season like this? And then later if you plan to make more games just have them meet the standards of whatever website.
    I think right now people care more about this game being finished than the website, if it's finished they're more likely to back the next game even if it doesn't have the content of Breeding Season as you're then cemented in as being reliable and making quality work.

  5. It's already been 2 weeks since last content update... I know that doesn't mean you're not working, but I can't get enough of your game... Just really small anim update would be such a nice advancement... like endings in the anim (creampie or wasted cum; afterall, this is BREEDING ;p ) and/or adding sounds (that really drive me nuts!
    By theway, 1st time I comment, so : HELLYEAH!!! WHAT A FUCKING NICE AWESOME GAME!!!! KEEP IT UP!!!

    1. Ugh, it annoys me to see people clamoring for pictures like an artist can just squat over a tablet and shit them out. They'll release what they're happy to, considering the ridiculous amount of fucking 'BAAWWWW U CHANGD MAH GAEM' they got with the last round, I wouldn't be surprised if we get a game update in a months time saying "Here's the art, fucking deal with it."

    2. What bugs me more are the suggestions of adding monsters or having an assistant or scenes with the other characters in the game when maybe 20% of the possible combinations of the current monsters are finished, and even then several of the animations are pretty lame, like anything involving the elves.

      I would like to see the event system at least started.
      I would like to be able to donate unwanted monsters to the shop.
      I would like to see the special semen that the elves promise when they arrive.
      I would like to see the game balanced a little better so that it doesn't take forever to breed something useful early.
      Could Hartista please change either harpy grease or horse cum so that one of them increases the chance of passing along positive breeding modifiers and/or traits.
      The arrow to move the scene forward in the harvesting scenes is way too big and distracting.

      None of this would require changing the art. Several of these changes would have an immediate positive impact on the game and could be implemented quickly.

    3. I would just love it if all of the different scenes were finished.

  6. Looks great. Can't wait for the chance to donate.

  7. Im in. I think the game is great for the level of development it is in. I will keep up so I know when you have everything lined up. Would anonymous paypal donations work?

  8. If he made a new bank account and signed up to PayPal with new ID and so on. It could work.

  10. Wow, this guy has done basically nothing since his "absence" and people are waiting to donate. Harista I can't say based off of your actions the laying off thing is surprising, I don't want to get personal but... You got someone to do the art you didn't want to. You're creating a site based around getting paid that none of your customers really care about except, to hope you finish and start actually working again. You update whenever you please, better lately but that's basically because of your new artist. It blows me away that people are lined up to pay, if you expect that kind of reenforcement in the real world, get ready for some disappointment.

    1. I work with Hartista as a hobby, he has real life priorities, so do I.
      And I create new artwork whenever time allows it, new sketches have been added over the week along with UI.
      Do not say things you cannot back up, makes you look downright silly.

      Delete
    2. What's there to back up? Everything you said is all well and good, and you all can do what you do. I based my statement on a track record that remains true. You didn't argue any of it, you simply stated irrelevant facts. Fact: Harista's track record sucks. Fact: last time people donated they were pissed. Einsteins definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Have a nice night.

      Delete
    3. how about you stop being a jerk and make your point in a nice way. After all just like S-Purple said Hartista has real life priorities. And before you say anything I to would like more and faster update like you, but unlike you I'm not going to be a jerk about it.

      Delete
    4. Both sides got right points..
      Even the game now is good enough to donate for me and as someone who find out this game since 1 month, i am ready to donate... but...

      1. I am very happy with the game and i played it for days non stop when i found out... The game mechanic is awesome and got brilliant ideas and its open for more... so harista is very good at this..

      2. I liked the harsitas artwork very much..i was just expecting more and more animations and characters.. but he gave the art section to S-Purple and as my taste, i prefer haristas vector drawings.. BUT the BIGGEST point here about animations... if they can manage to make good animations with S-Purple, i can ok with that...

      WE NEED TO SEE an ANÄ°MATION... this games animations are not so complex.. they are short loops.. it was easy when you are use to do it at flash as harista did before (easy means if you know what to do and got experience). But we dont have any idea what S-Purple will use for animating..

      I am asking to S-Puprple: I didint know you before so as an artist, did you animate before? If you accept to join this game as the artist, i think you did before.. so can we see some examples? Or better can you please do a simple animation for this game to give us any idea what we should expect for future..

      3. If you want to open a membership website and begin to get money from ppl, it passes the hobby... You start to get money from your hobby and it means you get some responsibilities to your customers.. you need to update ordinary, you need to make quality work.. You cant or you should not do whatever you want whwenever you pleases...
      Everyone got RL issiues ofcourse but when you get paid, it becomes your work (somekind of) and it becomes a part of your RL...

      Are you both ready for this? I am use you will get lots of money, i know from my experiences at this kind of fetish.. but could you continiue like COC maker done even it comes to devourse..

      Hobby is something to do at your free time... when you get paid from your hobby, it becomes a "happy to do work" but work is work..

      Sry for my bad english...

    6. I'm not saying he didn't make a good point I'm just saying he doesn't have to be so mean in making the point. He could have just as easily made it in a nice way. Afterall with out them the game wouldn't exist to begin with.

      Delete
    7. I'll actually still be the person doing the animating, S-Purple is just supplying me with art assets and sprites.

      That said, I'm planning on uploading a new animation for you all to see by next week, so just hold on and you'll get a chance to see it.

  11. i hope work gets going on this game soon

  12. Wow, I have found this game a year ago I guess? when the author posted it on 4chan. I didn't know the game changed so much, and this art is awesome!(No matter what name you use, I love your art).

    I hope you keep up the good work! I am looking forward to see this game becoming greater and greater!

    ReplyDelete
  13. first off love the game lot of fun ton of potential and the new art not half bad little heavy on the outlines but eh anyway just a suggestion but could u add in a way to get a specific monster instead of just geting random ones u choose a specific one like demon and only demons come up would help with spending less gil when looking for specific type and for the love of god man add sound to the breeding animations only seen 2 so far with sound

  15. When play the game at the link(tab) above, I saw that the monster shop has an updated interface, that's fancier and fits in with the setting more.

    However, when I download it from the link below the browser based flash on that page, I noticed that despite them both stating Alpha Build 4.3, the download version has the old blue-white panel. I'm wondering if the downloaded version is an older version of some sort, and am hesitant to test out one or the other, as I don't know if one is missing features or not. It'd be a little bit of a kill joy if I play the download version, only to find I'd have to start over in the event that I had been playing an older version than the current. If the only difference is the appearance of that panel, then I'd play the download version anyway, as it's just the appearance of a panel.

    1. Hmm, seems he didn't change the version number again, guess it's 4.3.1 now. The download link on the Legend of Krystel forum seems to have the latest version with the new shop touches.

    2. ah, thanks for letting me know.

      On another note, how do I download the .swf file? I can open it in another window, yet I cannot seem to find a way to save it to my computer.

      Delete
    3. right-click and "save as..."

      that's assuming you're using Firefox. if not then you should.

      Delete
    4. The new shop graphics were kind of an accidental stealth patch. I reuploaded the file and the new one just had a couple more assets in it. That said there's no other new content, it was just the shop.

  16. I have heard folks ask to give them the ability to change out clients if they do not suit, or are basically impossible to complete. I think that this would probably be game-breaking because you could then just spam the client change button until you get something you like.

    I think a better fix would be a "client contracts" system outlined as follows:
    Contracts are placed in the client screen and will automatically change after a set number of days unless accepted, at which point you will be given a set number of days to complete the contract (possibly assessing some form of penalty if not completed in time). Unaccepted bronze contracts cycle every 3 days, silver 5, and gold contracts cycle every 7 days. If you accept a contract, you will have 10 days to complete it at bronze, 15 at silver, and 20 at gold. This will keep the contracts changing on a regular basis, but will also allow players to pick up a contract if they don't quite have the monster, but are confident they can make the order within the time limit. Upon completion (or failure), a new contract will be posted to replace it.

    1. how about a refresh button instead because I just don't think it would be fun to be rushed into completing a contract. Speaking of contracts does anyone else unlock silver trait instead of a gold trait from a gold contract most of the time and is it a bug or is it suppose to be that way.

      Delete
    2. I've had that issue in a past update before. The gold contracts started to unlock gold traits only after I finished unlocking all silver traits.

      Delete
    3. So it isn't just me, oh if you save before you sell to a gold contract and reload it if you don't get a gold trait and keep repeating eventually you will get a gold trait. I guess it is random until you unlock all the silver trait. Although I still don't know if it is a bug or on purpose.

      Delete
    4. It's not an issue, the way the system works is that there are traits rated silver and gold. If you complete a Silver Client, you'll only get a random Silver trait. If you complete a Gold client, it gives you a random trait of the all the remaining traits (Silver or Gold). It's supposed to make finding a Gold trait more of a rare find compared to Silvers.

      My only gripe with the system is HBombs choices of which traits are which. I'd rate a trait Gold if it had a game breaking ability (Mutagenic, Incorrigible, True Breeding), but he's got stuff like Albino and Are You Sure... as Golds, even though all they do is fiddle with colors. Then there's the Free Silvers & Golds you get, .... just why?

      Delete
    5. You wouldn't need to be 'rushed' into completing a contract unless you ACCEPT the contract. There'd be no penalty for not taking a contract. Think of it more on the lines of "If you don't accept this contract, another rancher will". Since Bronze is easiest, the other ranchers will be more likely to accept the contract sooner. This is why they would automatically refresh at 3, 5, or 7 days depending on the level.

      The problem with just a refresh button is the simple fact that it would allow you to spam it until there's an ideal contract for you to cash in on immediately. This seems very game breaking to me, unless it costs progressively higher gold to do so (like the monster store), That, however, would mean paying a lot of gold if the RNG gods frown upon you.

      Having a time limit to complete an accepted contract in my mind really boils down to one thing: If you sign a contract, your client will expect the work to be done in a timely manner. However, I can see your point of wanting to hold on to an accepted contract as a long-term goal. So perhaps the 10-15-20 day complete/fail timer could be changed into a money bonus timer that starts at +50% for bronze +75% at silver, and +100% at gold, but loses 5% per day until there is no bonus left. Think of it as an incentive for quick service. This would mean, however, that once you have accepted the contract, it will not change again until its completed.

      tl;dr refresh button breaks game, details on how to address issues posted by earlier reply.

    6. contract should be first of all, possible to be completed, unlike elven slave girl in second contract, creature specific should be limited to the ones you have in case of bronze, and maybe "anything but" and creatures you can unlock with your cash balance.
      btw current system allows you to just load game until you have just the right contract...
      please don't treat futanari as a girl in contracts when everywhere else it's treated as a completely different type.
      and then there is futanari trait for male types that doesn't get them ant lady parts... not that i want it to be visible but i really hoped i can get futa dickwolf to get pregnant with but stalion :) or another futa (double pregnancy?), if they can't be futanari then maybe there should be some kind of trait like asymptotic carrier of futa trait :)
      So my idea for contracts is like that:
      make gold only type-specific(no anything but) it really is a pain in the ass when you try to get jus the right monster out of the breeding of two :) and would make the gold traits even more wanted, maybe even too hard to get all of them.
      silver could be just a little harder by adding the stat<number for it and leaving all the rest,
      bronze is just great how it is except i get "train me a demon" after 1st or 2nd day.
      Wouldn't hurt to implement the timer for contracts, but with at least 10 days before contract expires, even with constant loading and breeding i just can't get some contracts done in a week. just don't make shorter terms for easier contracts that would be just not right, with tutorial saying that silver and gold expect more.
      There is so much work and ideas to implement that i admire you for just not giving up on whole project.

    1. Not likely, despite all the monster variations in appearance and so forth, the main character art and animation was all 'hard coded' making it hard to make any changes. We'll have to see what S-Purple plans to do with it and how much forethought HBomb does when remaking the engine.

    5. Going down the Fenoxo route now? Is this going to end up with you only associating with a hugbox of people who don't criticize anything about the game or its development? The only comments that seem to grab your attention are the ones that are rude or vulgar so whats the point of keeping things civil.

      Delete
    6. You can criticize my game and development as much as you want; you can even insult me and call me names and shit, go wild.

      I'm not, however, going to tolerate people in my comments treating other commenters and fans in a disrespectful manner. The internet is full of places where people are led to believe that treating each other like shit is perfectly acceptable and they won't be expected to act like adults and consider the fact that they're conversing with actual human beings. Disagreeing is fine; hell disagreeing is great, because well thought-out arguments for one position or another are super constructive.

      However calling each other "pricks", or "faggots", or telling each other to "go die" is completely unacceptable behavior for an adult human being, and if you're not an adult then you shouldn't be here. I will moderate the comments and delete those that are disrespectful to other posters, because I will not allow that behavior here.

      If you're upset, that's fine. If you're pissed, that's fine. But express yourself respectfully or I will delete your comment.

      On a side note, I read almost every comment on the blog. I don't respond to most of them because honestly I don't have the time, or I don't have an answer, or it's something that I plan on explaining later, or any other number of reasons. I try to jump on the disrespectful comments, though, because I do not want anyone getting the idea that I'll let you get away with treating each other that way.

      Delete
    7. calling some one a prick is insulting them, but telling them not to be a prick like one of the post above is just the save as telling them not to be mean it isn't an insult when said that way at least not to me and if they take it as an insult that is their own fault. because I didn't mean it as a insult.

      Delete
    8. Oh and if you think I'm being insulting or disrespectful again then I am sorry but that is one of the problems with the internet, not being able to easy tell if people are being rude or not.

    Here is a link to another game: legend of queen opala. It contains bestiality too, and maybe Hartista, you can ask the creator what did she do to maintain her operation. Or just ask her about some tips for funding system.

  22. Okay I know you have newer posts and all but I think posting under this particular header is best for this info. Your Artists old name is still on the most recent version of the game itself on the starting screen you may want to update it to fix said issue since I understand the desire to separate hentai personas and normal personas.
