On a related note, I want to welcome Fleet onto the Breeding Season team! Fleet is the first dedicated Flash developer we're adding to the team, and along with aiding in the art asset import/set-up process he'll be helping me tidy up the messy, messy code-base to make our ability to deliver content way more efficient. Fleet will help us fix one of the biggest bottlenecks we've been struggling with, and over the next month or two I foresee a very big increase in the amount of content we put out!
I also wanted to let you guys know that we're currently talking to two very talented artist/animators who are interested in contributing to the project; I won't name any names until things are all worked out, but I will say that there's a good chance you might be familiar with some of their work already.
Also, since I'm sure you guys are dying to know by now: I'm planning on releasing the next update late on the 23rd. There's a chance that will spill over to early on the 24th, but I'm trying to prevent that. Sorry about having the updates squished together at the end this month. I'll be putting up 5.2 for patrons and releasing 5.0.1 to the public.
5.2 will be relatively small: expect a couple of animations, an event or two, and some bug fixes/cleaning up of earlier animations (futauruses will definitely be fixed up). We have much bigger things planned for 5.3, at the very least you'll see Seraphs in-game and a few new animations, beyond that it's a little early to say but we have some things we've been working on that should be going in within the next few updates.
Finally, I thought I'd leave you with some new art from S:
This is Inquisitor Darkholme. Some particularly devious Inquisitors have made names for themselves by seducing unwitting victims into attempting to violate Imperial mandates of chastity and decency, and then betraying and arresting them when they fall for their traps. Darkholme is the undisputed master of this style.
To monsters, not having sex is akin to starvation. As such, the idea that there're humans who aren't having sex or are even entirely celibate is a matter of great concern to certain compassionate monsters. Out of pity for these poor humans, a band of demonic monsters have formed a charitable organization known as the "Fuck the Humans Foundation" based around bringing sex to humans in need. Unfortunately, for some reason people seem to keep getting the wrong idea about their noble mission.
By the way: the one on the left is a Semen Demon.
Merrith is the loyal butler (butt-ler?) of the Marquis and Marchioness. She's actually one of the oldest elves alive, and has served the Marquis' line for generations upon generations. She is rather uptight and a bit stuck in the "old ways" of the elves, but she takes great pride in her ability to serve.
And, finally, here's a peek at a scene that I know a lot of you are looking forward to:
