Pre-Beta Public Demo

Hey, still working away on the new release: it'll be ready in about 4 or so more hours. I'm afraid to say that the save function still won't be working yet, but it will be going into the New Years update at the end of this month (and, following that, saves will finally transfer for every version going forward). Tonight Patrons will be getting new traits as well as the new event system and our special Christmas event, including work from our newest animator who I'm looking forward to introducing formally. It won't have all of the old events ported over yet, but it should at least be something fun for ya'll to enjoy.

For now I'm going to put up the demo build that Patrons got access to a little while ago; it's not a playable version of the game but it's something for free players to mess around with at least to see some of the changes that are coming in the new build. Once New Years comes, I'll be putting up the build I released to Patrons earlier this month, so you'll be getting something more substantial soon.

EDIT: To update for you guys; I'm still here, and I'm still working. Thank you so much for your patience. Still trying to get the update up ASAP, right now it's looking like it'll be maybe 4:00 AM PST.

EDIT: Make that 5:00 AM PST, 6:00 at the absolute latest. And yes, I am heartily regretting setting a deadline around the holidays :(. Sorry, and again thanks for your patience guys; you're the best.

  1. I was just reading the comments section on the last progress update (such a cesspool) and quietly wondering when the new release would show up Then I went to the main page, and hello! It's there now. Just as I get home and have some time for the fappin.

  3. I hope some of the beach scenes are still in. Getting mermaid jetsam and the treasure chest helps in the beginning. The pink pearl not so much, since if you get a visit from the alarune, she will consume it instead of being able to reuse it.

  4. So I came here with secondhand bias that the maker is one lazy developer- after checking the blog since the 9th December announcement every now and then, I have to say you really are bad at this.

    Before all the white knights rush in to defend- Please, I'm sure we all have patience, but it's one to say you'll do something and fail but to repeatedly do it? Now that's just disrespectful.

    I was going to cough up some money but never mind- I'll just check swfchan in a week.

    1. Okay, how about this. YOU try developing a game, and once its almost ready YOU get to rewrite the entire coding for the game to make it better for YOUR consumers. Now, on top of that, run a blog where you have people constantly criticizing you for not making YOUR game fast enough. Oh, and have fun finding and hiring people to help with the artwork and animations and story-line. This shit is not easy, don't come in here, criticize a game you know absolutely nothing about, read a blog and say the creator is bad at this. You are not making this game, H-bomb is. Also it's the holidays which can't make it any easier. The only people who have even the slightest right to criticize are the patreons, which ironically are the only people who aren't.

      H-bomb, stay awesome! Don't let these haters and inpatient spoiled brats ruin your mood. Your game is amazing and I'm looking forward to the next update!

      Shut the fuck up with your stupid passive aggressive bravado.

      You know what before you even suggested that- I was thinking about it. I'm animator and coder myself and I know how long such a project would take and I had this wicked thought why not put this dev to their place,

      So yeah I'm gonna develop my own game and you know what? It's gonna be free; You know why? Because no matter how much you imply I'm the one hating here I'm not, I'm talking sense here and I'm not going to be an idiot and ask people to pay for a shitty game which hasn't even developed- and then be even a bigger idiot and tell people I'm gonna update on a given date and time and then fail to deliver over and over again- That's just bad sense of responsibility.

      ---

      How long has it been since they said they'll post the updated version?
      How many times you think they said they are gonna post the update with an excuse?

      It's honestly not the 'wait' that is pissing most of the people off it's how they keep being irresponsible with their own word.

      Lol you think people that pay don't have a right to criticize? Well news flash even if it was free they still had the right to criticize, so please again shut the fuck.

      Calm down mate. The problem is not the time, it's the constant deadline breaking. We have been told that we would get a new working version days ago and he still hasn't released it yet. If he didn't give us such short deadlines, it would have been fine. Instead of saying that we would get it today, if he said we would get it next week and than released it 2 days before the deadline, everyone would be happier. He's creating expectations that he often can deal with.

  7. Anonymous, again. I've rethought my last post after feeling like a grade AAA douchenozzle for being glaringly disrespectful in the very same post where I tried (strrrrrrrrrrrettttttttttttttch) to call you disrespectful. Sorry about that. I'm actually just jealous, and I want you to fail like I know I would if I ever actually tried to do something imaginative. Cheers and happy holidays to you, your crew and the fams. Keep up the great work in the New Year!

    1. Hi Jason, I'm the guy from yesterday. I just wanted to chime in and let you know that this is exactly what I meant with missing reliability (but I know you know that by now):

      1) "I'm planning on a release complete with traits, events, and the new save system for Patrons and a public release of some of the older demo builds for Christmas!"
      2) "I'm still planning on doing the release tomorrow, likely pretty late in the day (so in a worst case scenario, it'll be an early Boxing Day release"
      3) "It's starting to look a little less like "early on Boxing Day" and more just like "on Boxing Day", but I will get the update up before the end of the day"
      4) "Hey, still working away on the new release: it'll be ready in about 4 or so more hours."
      5) "To update for you guys; I'm still here, and I'm still working. Thank you so much for your patience. Still trying to get the update up ASAP, right now it's looking like it'll be maybe 4:00 AM PST."
      6) "Make that 5:00 AM PST, 6:00 at the absolute latest. And yes, I am heartily regretting setting a deadline around the holidays :(. Sorry, and again thanks for your patience guys; you're the best."

      There should be some kind of limit to this, at least I thought so as a relatively rational person (or so I'd like to think). Anyways, have a nice day still and merry Xmas.

    3. Yeah I saw that, I took most of it from there -- thanks for compiling it. And I agree with you entirely. I'm not hate-mongering mind you, I am just pointing out that there's no way you can rely or trust him at this point.

      Delete
    4. Eh, Blizzard did the same thing with the Gnomes and Goblins release, actually it's not that unusual in the game industry for deadlines to be missed. I'm just happy new stuff is coming out, I don't pay so it's not like I got any real right to bitch, and if I did pay I doubt I'd be bitching as an Anon

      Delete
    5. One doesn't need to pay to have a valid criticism, this game used to be free and technically still is -- I'm sure you didn't go around telling people back then that they couldn't critique the game because they didn't pay for it... Patreon is a platform for donations and support, nothing else.

      And this isn't about the game industry at large or Blizzard (which you can hardly compare to this in any way... really now), it's about repeatedly missing his deadlines... 6 times in fact in the span of 2 days.

      Delete
    6. Anon 4:47 AM For the first time I think I'm wasting my time (and money) with this game. Therefore my other reviews, I think it's better not to give a delivery date if you think there are chances of not complying.

      Delete
    7. @5:02 AM: Yes, that sounds rational, although then I fear progress would slow down even more. I at least hope that he feels a bit of pressure because of his own deadlines, which would be missing entirely elsewise and probably delay new releases even more.

      You might consider "pausing" your patronage and checking out the game when it's further along, and if you still feel like it then continue your patronage. It's up to you! This is just kinda sad in general...

      Delete
    8. @5:07 AM Yo creo que tienes razón sobre that he feels a bit of pressure because of his own deadlines,for that reason I think it's better not to give a delivery date, just create pressure for him and frustrating for us when he's not comply.
      Great idea.

      Delete
    9. I gotta say I think your expectations are too high, guys, but I don't want to make an argument bigger. I think it's a fair point about meeting deadlines when they're given, but it's the holidays. H-Bomb isn't a professional, just some guy that knew some programming (assuming/I haven't been here from the beginning) and wanted to make a breeding game. He's learning and getting better, and we're certainly getting progress. We even have a new artist/animator who is freaking adorable. This was my expectation, and I'm happy to give a dollar for the progress so far.

      Delete
    10. I agree with Minty Kiss on this.

      Delete
    11. Thanks for the answer Minty. I know that he isn't a professional, but this isn't the first time this has happened... it would be more accurate to say the 20th or 30th if you count everything together (and it wasn't holidays then for most of the time)? At some point there should stick something about having to manage one's schedule properly -- and while I know that quantity and quality of the product doesn't scale with the amount of money that is thrown his way, I'd think that for 25k$ a month he could at least learn to manage his time properly or not give out nonsensical deadlines (although I suspect the former is the real problem).

      And of course I agree, seeing progress is always nice and having even more animators too -- that's exactly what I'd be willing to pay/donate money for; but that's the exception not the rule. (Oh and there was no argument there, this was actually a surprisingly calm discussion).

  21. Sup free custumer here, liked the teaser by the way shows promisse but unfortunatly i get the feeling nobody is getting a playable game for a very long time, not bitching by the way you guys are rewriting the game core so pretty much creating a new game i just hope you don´t start leaving stuff behind for one thing that really frustrate me is getting a new monster and not beeing able to watch him/her do its business all that abstract thing really doesn´t do it for me, guess i´m bitching a litlle now, still waiting to see an elf do the breeder and most of the futa stuff is still messed up just a thougt when a male futa pops i´d like to see him growing breasts and getting more femalle like, all done now been following your woork for quite some time and fell in love with the concept from the get go so guys keep up the good woork not easy to be the underdog in gaming industry you guys do us all pride waitting for the day when i can get an top knotch RPG X-rated from the ground up when this happens it will be because off guys like you, so thanks

  24. So cool, it's laggy and unstable, AMAZING.

    ReplyDelete
  25. So I have a lot of problems with this. And im gunna list them because its easier.
    1. This was late
    2. This crashes when trying to mate certain monsters
    3. Sometimes it shows a random animation and not one of the monsters you chose
    4. You cant do anything in the city
    5. You cant go anywhere on the map
    6. This is essentially the game we already have with a new breeding menu

    So in the end I understand this is a lot of work but don't promise us something that:
    A. we don't get on time
    B. is less than we already have
    and C. is insanely broken

    I sum this up pretty good? I think so

  26. hello i was just wondering if hbomb is planning on putting up a more stable version, i checked the old logs, but i didn't find a post about 5.4 becoming stable. in the update right after 5.4.2 release he said he was just a little bit away from re-stabilizing it.
    i know this thread is a couple of days old so i'll try reposting in the next one. anyone please menton if you found anything in the threads about 5.4 being stabilized

    1. Sup as far as i can tell even the latest 5.5.2 version isn´t up to the point 5.3 was moust of the animations aren´t integraded map features are still down and so on, get the feeling this is a brand new game so i´m guessing we´ll be getting the real deal only on versions 5.7 or .8 maybe for public release mid summer or something (august???) and here´s hoping version 6 is the final one, don´t know what else to say i love this game and i´d really love to play it
