Vanilly Streaming and Progress Update

Hey guys; there'll be an update going up late tomorrow/early on the 1st (depending on your timezone). As of now I can confirm that the new save system will be in the game and working (barring any major bugs); meaning that from now on we'll be able to make saves transfer between different versions. There will still be a few updates in the future that won't transfer due to some large changes, but the majority of time you should now expect to be able to carry over your save with each new release. No promises on what else will be in the update just yet. There will also be a public release at the same time.

I also wanted to add that Vanilly, our newest artist/animator and full-time team member, has been streaming her work every weekday at 3 PM CST over on her channel at https://picarto.tv/live/channel.php?watch=Vanilly. You can also see her art over on her tumblr at http://vanillycheesecake.tumblr.com/.

The work Vanilly has produced for the game has been super stellar so far; in addition to animating S's art she has been designing new poses for us and as a result we have some really cool new scenes in the pipeline. Here's some sketches she made:









And here's some of the art that S has produced from them:



Oh, and one more exciting tid-bit: This scene (complete with cumshot) is now fully animated and you'll be seeing it in the game soon :P.

Oh, and I guess someone must've let it slip as it seems a bunch of commenters already knew, so I'll go ahead and admit that today is indeed my birthday (I turn 25 today) :P.

EDIT:
Oh man, and how could I forget? Vanilly made this enlightening diagram to explain the breeding process that I feel compelled to repost:

  2. I will of course remind everyone at 1st, but just as a precaution: GET YOUR BINGO CARDS READY!

    1. Hahahaha, this is so bizarre! Imagine, for a sec, that you walked into work on your birthday and a dude you've never seen before in your life was handing out fliers detailing everything he didn't like about you in a manner that made it obvious he was absolutely hanging on your every word and constantly interested in the things you did.

      This is actually up there with some of the more flattering things I've experienced in my life. It's just so incredibly tsundere! No one could've made this unless they cared very deeply about me and had a vested interest in my success :P. I don't even mean that as a joke; the fact that you would go through the trouble to make this means you're clearly emotionally attached to the project.

      Anon, I hope it makes your day that sempai noticed you; I think that in a weird way you made mine :D.

    2. Haha the poor guy probably spent hours doing that.

    3. Yeah, keep laughing. Let's wait till 1st and then we will talk about these cards again, okay? Personaly I pick the last card and I expect full points in 2 releases.

      @9:53
      If you spend HOURS on doing things as simple as these cards then ask HB to hire you. Looking at the progress done in last 6 months you will fit the team perfectly.

      And I'm NOT the Anon 5:16. Simply I don't consider these cards as just a joke. They are more real as bingo cards than BS after 5.3 as serious project.

    4. All I'm hearing is "i-it's not like I like you or anything, b-baka!" :D

    5. I ship. Just sayin'.

    6. Actual anon that did the thing here.

      Twist it as you will HB, calling it tsundere or flattery - that is your choice. I heard "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery", but I guess you could say "mockery" is one as well. Feel free to be flattered then. As a side note, your arrogance underlined by the crude attempt of humor, i.e. "sempai noticed you" is frankly repulsing.
      One could argue whether I am "emotionally attached" to the project. I might be, I probably am at this point, but I'm not sure it's the kind of attachment you would wish for your userbase.
      An attachment that grew on a fertile soil of broken promises, grief, lies (those of omission as well) and regret. I would be lying if I said I had very high hopes for your project or that I was a great fan. I wasn't, but I saw an interesting idea that could bloom into something unique. But with each update that hope dwindled and once positive emotions turned into negative.
      To cut to the chase, it was trampled by incompetence, pandering and foolishness.
      I wanted to further expand on your work ethics, your communication with userbase and your project management (generally speaking) - but I figured: why bother? You can point and laugh, I can rebute, both sides will be quickly swarmed by white knights/trolls (different sides of the same coin). This post is long enough as it is.

      PS.
      One hour. Ten minutes in photoshop, fourty-five spend on thinking about content and five to come up with the idea, search the randomizer, upload and write the post. Judging by the amount of chuckles I got from different parts of the internet, I wager it was an hour well spent.

    7. The anon doth protest too much, methinks. :P

    8. Hbomb, this made me laugh out loud quite inappropriately in the office, and I couldn't explain it to anyone. Very embarrassing. Anyway, I enjoyed this response much better than the self-flagellating or ultra-polite ones.

    9. That anon is going to need some of this-

    10. Your responses as the creator of this project are quite frankly pathetic.
      Either prove all the fucking naysayers wrong for once HPB by delivering on time or shut the fuck up. The third option is stay out of the comment section, because apparently your public relations skill are even WORSE than your punctuality.
      I, for one, will keep that bingo image ready

      Delete
    11. H-bomb you so crazy~ lol :)

      Delete
    12. Yeah, HPB, you're pathetic. So pathetic I'm going to play a game thinking about how pathetic you are, and reloading the page every two minutes all night until dawn. That's pretty pathetic, don't you think?

      Seriously, I for one am glad to see Hbomb giving whiners all the respect they deserve.

      Delete
    13. Reading comprehension, moron. I said his "responses" are pathetic.
      And I don't nearly spend as much time checking this blog as you claim, once per two weeks is enough to be disappointed about zero news or progress.
      Huge laugh at the "respect" though.

      Delete
    14. If you're actually trying to get a voice through then at least make the first logical action and make yourself a name. Or continue trolling anonymously with that free time of yours, because you're obviously not insecure or anything; and I'm sure you'll be satisfied by any sample that'll take you seriously.

    1. Thanks! I'm working today, but this evening I'm taking time off to have a birthday party that my roommates are throwing for me. We went out and bought a ton of craft beers last night and we're having like 15 people over for board games, so I'm really looking forward to it! One of my roommates is a chef and he baked me a cake and made some home-made peppermint and nutella icecream, which I am so psyched for.

  6. Happy Birthday! I saw this game, and jumped on the patreon the same day, and couldn't stop playing!

    Having watched Vanilly work the past few days, she definitely deserves a shout-out and a stamp for VanillyQuality™ as her animations have been turning out extremely smooth and detailed!

    Kepp up the good work and I hope to see more of the game in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Happy Birthday, Harista! We appreciate your hard work on the game. Is this latest build going to give wider access to some features (guild, cumshop, etc) or will it more or less be the same as 5.6 just with the save feature added?

    1. gonna be only the save function so far

  9. Any news on the other animators? I have literally heard of nothing from mittsies (and wasn't there one other guy too?)

    Vanilly's work on the animations has been amazing. I've been at her stream pretty regularly and the attention she gives every detail is incredible - major kudos to her! She's got some mad skills/patience/work ethic.

    Anyways, happy birthday man, looking forward to the update.

    1. The other animators all work with us on a part-time basis, so how much stuff they do for us each month is dependent on (1) how much work we can give them and (2) how much other conflicting work they have on their schedule. For instance, Mittsies hasn't been able to contribute much to the project the last couple of months just due to time availability, other projects, etc. Vanilly is the first animator who we're taking on full-time, and as you can tell she has been a huge help so far.

      Delete
    2. I especially think the fact that she's constantly in contact with the community is awesome, though I worry about her burning out. This is intense.

  10. Well Happy Birthday and have a good day

    by the way, awesome game u're creating

  11. I really do hope you're paying Vanilly well. For the quality of work and the amount of hours she's put, she definitely deserves a large chunk of the Patreon money.

  12. "clit dick maybe IDK" remains my favorite notation of all time.

  13. I'm very sad and disappointed that the dickwolf x fbreeder orgy didn't ended with double penetration (the hype after concet art was real)... the moment when I saw on stream how the bottom dickwolf is hotdogging (HOW THE FUCK?!) when other guy fuck her... God why? ... as always BS team had to ruin another cool idea >.>

    Replies
    1. Patience, friend :P. The bottom dickwolf penetrates too: it's a multi-part animation.

    2. so Vanilly added double penetration loop/animation (with cumshot in both holes) or it's just 1-2 seconds sequence? Cause when I was watching her stream I only saw
      a) bottom wolf penetrating her while top/right one is hotdogging her
      b) top/right wolf penetrating her while bottom one in some unexplained/impossible way is also hotdogging her (he pierces his friend dick to do it? he have ghost dick?).... last time I saw female breeder model she didn't had wide hips and ass wide as big barn so you could insert multiple dicks between her buttocks... she ain't Holstaurus

    Why not add a links tab to the blog which has the tumblrs, deviantarts, furaffinitys, and other sites for the dev team of the game in it?

    1. I'd really like that too! It'd be nice to be able to "check in" with the team members and see what's going on.

    Also; that animation explaining breeding is great! XD

  17. Happy b-day, Mr. Bomb! Vanilly is awesome, by the way! Cheers!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hmm, the diagram is too difficult to understand. Can you explain it in simpler terms?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Vanilly Is just about the best thing that happened to the game
    The concept art is cool
    I just hope the finished animations are easy to implement to the game
    once the version gets stable it'll be the greatest thing that happened since LoK
    I'm just happy to see it get this far

    Keep going HB

  20. Reposting in the new thread in hopes that Vanilly sees it ... I'm also really enjoying her work:

    Vanilly, I know you're busy with your LiveStream right now (very cool!) but since I know you do read these posts I thought I'd put in a request. A while back I'd mentioned that what really made the Kittengirl, Vealtaurus and Chickadee appealing in the original animations was the fact that their expressions and poses (particularly the idle poses) were "saucy" ... these creatures may have been smaller, but they were very much in charge of what they were up to. (The larger eyes were also cuter; I'm sorry to see all the female eyes getting smaller.) Just something I thought you might be able to help pull off with the newer designs too.

    1. Those have already been designed before I joined the team. I personally think they're really cute!

    2. Hey, thanks for replying Vanilly! I haven't seen the new designs or scenes with the Neoteny characters, but I'm really hoping they'll manage the cute-sexy well. I'm enjoying your work!

  21. So what abut your own website? Are we going to see it soon?

  24. I'm extrememly happy to see you take on begrudging comments like this in a very lighthearted manner. Kudos for keeping up the professionalism! ^^

    While recent releases of regular builds has been behind schedule, I'm very excited to see you guys pick back up steam; especially after seeing Vanilly's sketchs and S's art. Can't wait for the next build, and happy late birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I was hoping you could fix the following things in one of your upcoming updates, to make the game even better:

    1) The human Breeder should have the human intellect and adaptability, they should have the trait absorbing ability.
    2) The Futanari trait should be transferable. (you could even have an animation of the Breeder realizing it)
    3) The Breeder should be able to mate with herself.
    4) Breeder + monster = monster(either gender + possibly the 2 human traits) , Breeder + self = Breeder

    Keep up the good work.
