Alpha Build 5.7 Public Release

Hey guys, streaming has been going great. I'll likely be doing a small release (somewhere between an update and a hotfix) sometime next week that finishes up the item system with the ability to buy and sell them along with special consumable effects, an animation or two, and some bug fixes. You're all welcome to come chat with us while we put it together; it'll give you a better idea of how much hard work goes into the game- and also we just like chilling with you guys :P.

By the way; as an update on both the web dev position and the project manager position: we've received a lot of promising applications and are still in the process of hiring. It's been taking so long to get new hires on the project right now just due to unexpectedly taking on Vanilly full-time (so worth it) on top of budget awkwardness due to tax day coming up, but we absolutely want to fill those positions ASAP as they're both important for us.

Anyway, I'm also putting up the public release for alpha build 5.7. You can find the patch notes here:

And finally I'll leave you with a WIP preview of our St. Patty's Day event animation:


S and Vanilly have been doing these one-off holiday event animations both because they're incredibly easy to plop into the game (unlike breeding animations with variations that often take hours and hours to implement) and because we're focusing on putting a lot more seasonality in the game and things you can expect to change month-to-month to reduce the feeling of an endless grind.

  1. I feel like the winter version of the farm would look cooler if the whole river on the right was frozen over. : P

    1. Haha, I told S not to make it frozen over.

      Now you're making me doubt myself :P.

    2. I assume when you get to breed merfolk their house will be on the river, they'd probably get unhappy if their water froze.

    3. Anon at 8:45pm I do remember some kind of barn or something like it from S-purples old posts Its was in the river.

    4. Hi H-bomb if you see this the game doesn't play in browser for some reason it keeps telling me that this file will harm my computer and i'm not trying to download it I just would like to play it in my browser I don't know what going on?

    5. @Mr.X I've seen that barn, but it was for the plant monsters, not the merfolk. We haven't seen a merfolk barn design yet I believe. Still if we do I'm betting it's on the water. (It'd be kinda cool if it was on the waterfall, like they jump down and swim where in whatever body of water it leads into but jump up the waterfall into the barn when they wanna rest)

  2. Would the web-dev be in charge of the new website and/or forum? It's the only thing I'm really holding out for, as being able to discuss the game properly in between updates would make the wait that much more bearable.

    Also, are you intending to ever (I imagine it's not a priority) to make the seasonal special events for both breeder options? I've noticed quite a few people feeling disappointed at not being able to boink one NPC or the other.

  3. His Divine Majesty posted on Monday December 29 2014 that, "this project will take a long time, perhaps another year or more". It goes on to say "a project that will take months and months to reach completion".
    There is no agreement on the total number of animations, though the low numbers seem to be around 400. Even with ten animations per month, that would be three and a half to four years. Yes, four does "technically" fit in the "year or more" category, but that is one hell of a jump. "Year or more" sounds like a year, maybe a year and a half, not four. Totally blows away "months and months".

    It looks like the last mention of a project manager was December 7 2014, "there's been a lot of things competing for our attention this last couple of months, but I will start getting back to applicants within the next couple of weeks."

    What a coincidence! No mention of a project manager for three months, it comes up often in the comments of the most recent post, and suddenly His Divine Majesty just so happens to mention the project manager. That doesn't at all seem like a way to placate the masses.

    This is an official Troll (TM) Brand Troll Post. If it's not Troll (TM) Brand, it's not angry, vindictive, and riddled with perceived entitlements, all while slandering His Divine Majesty.

    1. How the hell are you playing this? There hasn't been anything that could be defined as "playable" in months.

    1. I'm actually having the same problem :(

    2. You aren't downloading the game, you are downloading more of a link. Find the file (it's usually in downloads, unless you changed the file destination somehow) and drag and drop it into the internet browser of your choice (firefox, google chrome, etc.). A tab should then open in the browser with the game in it. Hope this helps! :)

    1. I'd also like to see the fbreeder milked, but for real, not just a nibble-suck (though that's cool too!). I bet a lot of people would probably want the same for the mbreeder's prick.

  10. Hey, I agree that Vanilly was a huuuuuge boost for the team - who could dispute it? But she's not on the Patreon front page as part of the team, which I feel is a shame. She should definitely be up on the marquee.

    1. Let's take all of hbombs funding and push it to vanilly!

    2. not even kidding, holy shit. if you've dropped mittsies or whoever else you have on animating i hope you've given their pay to vanilly cause shit, she deserves it. She's done SO much work, at a consistently high quality and at a consistently high right. not to mention the effort she makes to interact with her audience.
