Status Update

So there is bad news and good news. 

The bad news is: I've quickly realized that the stat overhaul is going to require more time. There's just a massive amount of refactoring that I have left to do as I go about changing a lot of the fundamental code structure of the game and I want to make sure that I take my time with it and have everything designed in detail ahead of time so that I never have to rewrite this much code ever again. With luck and good planning I should be able to make the game a lot more stable and make the process of adding new functionality far more efficient. I'm going to shoot for having the stat overhaul in the game by the end of next month, but it will depend a lot on how much I end up deciding I have to rewrite as I go about doing my code audit. On the plus side, I've gotten to see just how much I've improved as a software designer and programmer since I first started this game. Ends up you learn a lot building a project like this from the ground up :P.

The good news is that since I've given up on finishing the overhaul for this update I've been able to focus on a ton of things we've been looking to get into the game for a while instead. I can't guarantee exactly how much of all this is going to make it into 5.1 on Sunday but ideally as much as possible.

We've got two new guild events you'll be able to take part in as an alternative way to accrue guild points and gain some favor with Lily and Cordelia. They were both written for us a long time ago by Tai who is a great writer and a major contributor to BS, but its taken me until now to finally get them in (and if you guys like the events I'll try to coerce Tai into writing more for us :P). We'll also be implementing the map system to allow you to travel to all those new locations we teased earlier, where you'll be able to participate in some special new events!

We've also tried to expand on our animations a lot this month and try some things that are a bit more complex. Below is the the pose set-up for the new catgirl/futa elf animation, as well as a new thing I've been excited to try: additional close-up scenes to animations that let you see a bit more of the penetration going on.


Here are the redesigns that S has done to make the Marquis and Marchioness more in line with the style of the elves you can get in your breeding pens:



Finally, here's your first peek at some Ferals aside from Kala! As you might imagine, Kala claims dominance over a lot of lovers, and happens to have a size-able harem of men at her disposal (an occasional woman too, but Kala is really picky about ladies). These two, Oren and Trisk, are her right and left hand men (literally, she uses her right hand for Oren's cock and her left hand for Trisk's (she demands each of them use both hands for her, of course)).
Oren is a tigerman and the son of a monster and a human. He's exactly the kind of person you would expect in the Ferals and he makes it his personal duty to make sure that anyone attempting to challenge Kala, either to combat or vigorous screwing, is worthy of it.
Trisk is exactly not the kind of person you expect in the Ferals. However, Kala happens to value him because it's hard to keep a village of people who are only concerned with constant, uninterrupted fucking running without someone who is willing to sort out the rather difficult logistics. Like Kay, Trisk happens to be extremely small for his age (he's actually 27; also there's a chance that he and Kay are actually related). Trisk and Kala also share some rather large secrets in their past that will probably surprise you.

  1. Will we be able to play as a half monster breeder, similar to the ferals?

    1. How do you know that you aren't already?

    2. That's not the only thing you can blow if you keep deciding that world-building is more important than the actual postponed sex animations.

    3. Wow, it was a simple offhand joke. Get a sense of humour, or at least perspective.

    4. I'm just as excited about the new sex animations as the next person here but what's being built here is more than just sex, if they wanted to they could have just made a collection of every sex scene that could happen, make it a slide show and give it to you but I bet in truth it wouldn't make you happy. Sure you got what you want but the sense of effort and discovery would be ripped from you and you probably wouldn't look back at this game. Building the world expands your imagination and fills it with more untold possibility which is the real reason any of us are here and not just sex because there are hundreds of games that do that already, so let them build the meal and wait for the desert because frankly we love it because it is more then sex animation.

    6. I agree with Anonymous July 26, 2014 at 7:58 AM. The games I play the most are the ones you have to put in some time and effort to get the sexy treat. Its something about the hunt and conquest I suppose.

      And as for Anonymous July 26, 2014 at 8:21 AM, with 3200+ Patreon supporters (and likely x5 non-paying supporters), how can you expect he's alone in his/her opinion? I'm sure s/he and I are not the only ones that love the development of the Breeding Season world along with the sexy animations. Plus, your comment seems unnecessarily snarky... Why do you presume they are alone in their opinion?

      Also, Anonymous July 25, 2014 at 6:16 AM is just insulting. No need to be a dick if you disagree with the development of the game.

      As an aside, I wish people would just pick a name instead of using anonymous...It doesn't even have to be the same name from post to post. It just makes it a pain in the ass to comment on somebody's post if 95% of posters use "Anonymous."

    7. And to think that all of this came from me asking if we could fuck in a different way.

  2. Will the future human/monster children we breed look similar to the ferals? Such as a dickwolf human crossbreed with the tail and ears and dick with the various human parts. And if so, will they be usable on the farm for breeding and will they be able to be women halfbreeds as well as male? Lastly, would they be located in the house so that it has a function aside from sleep...lied, now lastly, would they be under their own category so we wouldn't have to get rid of the full blood monsters?

  3. As far as biology is concerned, isn't it impossible to reproduce by oral or anal?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For mammals, usually yes. There are a number of animals for which the digestive and reproductive systems share outlets or are otherwise interconnected, the most common example being a cloaca, but there are a number of other very different arrangements. I mean, there's a significant subset of animals for which fertilization occurs outside of the body entirely, not to mention of course asexual reproduction or self-fertilization. Reproduction in general has a massive number of mechanisms and on top of those a massive number of different strategies. Some animals, like (iirc) bed bugs don't even use an orifice for receiving sperm: the male actually pierces the female's exoskeleton and injects sperm directly into the hemolymph (their equivalent of blood) which then circulates to the eggs. This is, of course, all entirely irrelevant because it's supposed to be assumed that in any animation that involves impregnation the monster switches to the vagina at the end, and also monsters are magic and can do whatever they want, but I wanted to feel like I'm making some sort of use of my biology degree.

      (I do actually have a biology degree. And a psychology degree too! And yes, I am aware precisely how biologically inaccurate the things that go on in this game are :P)

      Delete
    2. Even for humans there's chance of getting pregnant when attempting to only oral/anal sex. Sperm can easily go to vagina even without penetration.

      Delete
    3. @HartistaPipebomb You have biology degree and made game where humans, half-humans, monsters have cross-species intercourse resuting in fertile offsprings poping out in 1/7 days. With psychology degree you made game including bestialty, eating various excretions, incest sex, sex with neonity... basicly sex with almost anything. Dammm... your professors must be proud of you right now...
      I like it :D

      Delete
    4. I'm pretty sure most players aren't that bothered with the intricate biological details and their suspension of disbelief not broken as long as there are sex animations. You know, something that's been on the backburner for WAY too long.

      Delete
    5. I for one would like monster pregnancy taking a bit. Like 2-3 days.why? Well, not only does it make more sense, but it also add some more variables and strategy. A pregnant monster is out of commission for 3 days.

      This kinda makes the "breed a super-monster and let it op offspring 24/7" less viable, and it should be made less viable.
      Poor females in this game are spiting out babies like a machinegun spits out bullets.
      How do they even walk?

      Delete
    6. Monster breeding's explained in the lore.

      Delete
    7. Yeah, yeah...yada yada yada.. .magic. But they still have to squeeze out that bay out of their vagina.

      Magic or no magic, spitting babies at that rate is just silly. And like I said, it adds more strategy.

      Delete
    8. Like the Anon above you said... fucken LISTEN to Cordelia...the poor girl doesn't tell you that there ARE Monsters that CAN be pregnant for a few days as long as their offspring is very powerful...but it's very rare...so yes there already IS a loophole to alter pregnancy for if your Monsters stats are very high...

      Delete
    9. *the poor girl doesn't tell you that....... for no reason or you to just ignore her

      Delete
    10. I know what Cordelia sez. And I don't care.Instant pregnancy shouldn't be in. A few days should be the norm, regardless of monster "power".

      Delete
    11. Too bad. :D

      Delete
    12. Then make your own game with different pregnancy mechanics, no one here gives a flying fuck. It's an integral part of the lore that has been there since the start of development, cry some more.

  4. Great update. Thanks!

    Really love the redesign for the elves.

  5. Nice to see the world of Breeding Season grow as time go's on also the Feral's are a vary interesting tribe from what i can see and the new NPC's look cool like Oren as for the new area's i hope to find lots of epic stuff there as it looks like the map will be vary big and i hope to see the Imperial city to down the road as well. Its awesome that you are doing some new twists on the sex animation's i was hoping for something like this to happen it would be interesting to see how some of this works out for example say the female breeder was mating with the feral Stallion with the breeder on her hands and knees and the next scene the depending on the fertility level if she did not get pregnant the next scene would be a close-up of her with the Stallions dick in her mouth as she is swallowing his cum with his hoof holding her head in place but if she did get pregnant the scene would be a close-up as well of her taking load after load of cum as her womb fills up it would be challenging to see stuff like that play out. You and your team have being doing a great job so far H-bomb you rock!

    2. Hmmm... I just assumed the red X was to close the map. It would be fun if it was an "X marks the spot" thing though... where the "spot" is a sexy time with an NPC...

  6. Suggestion: The ability to bring monsters home with you for the night and fuck. For balance purposes, I guess only have pregnancy chance and no stat changes.

  7. When are new neoteny animations being added? It always bothers me when I see the old animations after having seen sime of the new ones

    ReplyDelete
  8. Trisk and Kay have the neoteny trait so is it possible that they are siblings or half siblings?

    ReplyDelete
  9. The new Marchioness is a big step up in my opinion. I like that they match now, and also of course she's hung almost as well as she was in the old art, which was one of the great things about her.

  10. Awesome update, thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  11. why the hell futa elf x catgirl pose/animation looks MUUUUUUUUUUCH better then male elf x catgirl? WTF? I hope that you will also change current silly sex position of elf boy x catgirl into the same thing as we can see for futa elf x catgirl

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wouldn't the closeup shots be more suited for the cumshots?
    No complains, just a wonder.

  13. Whatever happens, I'm really looking forward to the 5.1. Good luck with the stat overhaul and coding, I know how much of a paint hose can be!

    ReplyDelete
  14. hey, that is the best update so far ;)

    (still hoping for a good change / progress for the Feral, but except for that everyting is looking really good)

    ReplyDelete
  15. H-Bomb, you mentioned some time ago that you want to overhaul how the pens/structures. How you plan on doing it?

    I can see a few ways:

    1) having a grid (or simple free slot number) and each grid can take a pen. And you can build more than one of each.
    PROS: no need to re-design the pens. No extra art necessary
    CONS: monsters spread across 2-3 pens.

    2) Having a pen be upgradeable with extra capacity.
    PROS: all monsters in one place
    CONS: requires new art and probably more code.

    3)????

    ReplyDelete
  16. I hope that in this update there will tons of new animations for monster x monster sex scenes or protagonist(player) x monster sex&gather scenes and there will be also cumshot/creampie animations (like good old feral player x buttstallion). Can't wait to see catgirl/elf girl x buttstallion or player x buttstallion/demon

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think on S-purples tumblr there was cumshot pic for the catgirl/futa elf girl sex animation but its gone now but i to hope there will be lot's of these to see from cum swallowing to anilingus i'd like to see a nice wide variety in the harvesting and sex animations as well.

      Delete
    2. sigh I was hoping that they will first finish animations of hetero pairs instead of jumping into futa bandwagon... not to mention that they made futa elf girl x catgirl pose way superior to the catgirl x elf boy (aka plank boy or plastic sex doll) -_-

      Delete
    3. @up
      Yes, because your sexual preferences should be first priority for Harista and co.

      Imho there should be minimum one animation for each preference, so:
      - Futa x futa
      - Futa x female (elfgirl x catgirl from this post)
      - Futa x male
      - Loli x loli
      - Loli x female
      - Loli x male
      - Loli x futa
      - Loli x shota
      - Shota x shota
      - Shota x female
      - Shota x male
      - Shota x futa
      I don't really know ('cause I'm not interested in futas and lolis) if there will be futa neoteny, but if will:
      - Floli x Floli
      - Floli x female
      - Floli x male
      - Floli x Futa
      - Floli x loli
      - Floli x shota.
      So besides futa felf x catgirl there's should be minimum 11 (or 17) more animations.

  17. >checking VioletCardiovascular's art blog, notice Trisk is inspired by Ami of ModeSeven's stuff.

    Breeding season confirmed for vore and/or mode's special flavor of That'sNotHowSexWorksOhGodWhy that not even the voraephile's understand.

    I am getting ahead of myself though, and am aware it will never have a place in this game. It would be fucking hilarious though, monsters merging together in ways that can't be visually understood. Do not percieve this as hate toward's mode, his stuff just gets damn weird at times.

  20. I love the new content, but don't you think you guys spreading the game a bit too thin ? you still have about >150 animation to go just for the existing creatures / traits, I'm kind of afraid that if you don't focus on that the game will never be finished

      >I won't even mention lack of sounds/voices (unless they give up on adding those)
      ???
      >pure "genius", they should totally work for one of those Asian MMORPG game creators that like to add new content whole time but give a fuck about fixing old&current stuff


      ETA for finished game? IMHO 2020 or later

    2. This has been explained before. They want to add in working base features first before going about spending time on adding all the animations.

    3. Let me be the first to extend a huge debt of thanks for including a F/M anal sex scene. Aside from it being something I like, what better way of letting the user immediately know that the current coupling attempt will not result in offspring? :P

      Here's to hoping that eventually all sex scenes eventually have a/n option/random change to be vaginal/anal/oral/paizuri. Though it would add a metric ass-ton of animations to the already extensive list... Mind you, I did say eventually.

      And in that faraway day, here's a thought: A trait for the preference of which position a monster prefers. Anal, oral or paizuri lover would result in lower preg rates (and seeing that particular sex scene), while vaginal lover yields higher rates (with the vaginal sex scene). Perhaps I just like the thought of having an "anal loving, futa catgirl." Food for thought for some time long from now. :)
