ALPHA v. 0.1.06 (September 18)


v. 0.1.05 was badly broken, especially for head girls; this one should be better. Even so, I'm pushing this one a little earlier in the day so I can rush-fix any gamebreaking bugs.

Thanks again to the playtesters who are leaving bug reports and other feedback. Don't limit yourself to reporting my imbecilities; if you want something out of this game and I haven't explicitly said I will not be adding it, let me know. A lot of the content now in game is in response to requests.

The previous patch did intentionally remove the "train another slave" assignment. That content was overlapping too heavily with the head girl's training mechanisms, and in any case was not up to par.

Download: Mega.
If you haven't seen it, check out the post on the future of the game world.

Patch Notes:
  • New, non-random events. There are only a few of these as yet, for testing purposes. They tend to be relatively non-erotic, and connect the player and his arcology to the changing world. They will occur on specific, widely-spaced turns. For those who prefer to play one-handed, this content can be turned off on the starting screen.
  • Weather. This will eventually mean more than it now appears.
  • New quirk.
  • New random events. With the basic set in game getting closer to being bug-free, I'm gradually increasing the complexity of these.
  • Lots of bugfixes, including one for a particularly bad bug that stopped head girls from training other slaves properly.

    4. Hopefully fixed for 0.1.07. Bugs often conceal each other, and I sometimes can't playtest each and every scene every patch. Thanks for your reports, good stuff.

  5. My wish list is for bigger tits if possible even if they make girls stuck like amputations due to weight. Maybe having a bovine growth hormone. Just want to max out my hucow farm as much as possible. Base upgrades like better milkers for x8 liters per week would be nice if we get to stay after eveything goes dark. Also some way to slowly raise reputation from milking girls like starting a brand or contract with the dairy company ingame.

    1. Fair warning: when Wasteland finally happens (and it will be a while), I am intending to balance slaves with huge assets. It's going to be really rough hiking across the desert at the start of the game, and not being ambulatory is going to be very tough.

      Delete
    2. I completely understand, I see the milk they carry and produce as a needed resource in the future just like food, water and medicine. It may cost me a fortune to transport them and keep them safe, but I see milk becoming a new liquid gold when money loses its value compared to trading needed items. And if i dont make it, atleast I died trying my own way of things.

      Delete
    3. You're going to be very, very right about the needed resource. It's just that there's going to be a timeskip between games, and if slaves have physical impediments it will rip them up. Wasteland is the game I really want to play, myself, and what I've got in my head is a pretty hard roguelike in that it can and will remorselessly kick the PC's ass.

  8. When playing 0.1.06.3 I noticed a few things for later. So far I am loving the new events but we need a little more info about what is needed to resolve them. In the stripclub event the player has 6 rooms free and $5,000 currently and option 1 costs $3,000, option 2 has a chance to gain new slaves, and option 3 costs 2 rooms but you dont find out until after made a choice what you spent to fix or resolve it.

    1. For 0.1.07 the money amounts will be given on those events. Good feedback. I'm glad you like them. Personally, I find myself enjoying porn games more when they take place in a believable world that isn't 100% sex, but I know others get impatient with that kind of thing.

    2. I think you struck an amazing balance of providing everything scattered along the timeline without forcing any stop and grind progression like other titles have especially RPG maker games. Keep up the amazing work, and please see this to completion unlike so many other titles I have seen come and go recently.

    3. Thanks. The main reason I'm doing this is because I want to play the game, so I'm trying to keep it free of things that frustrate me, like grinding.

  9. Found one red text error so far in the 0.1.06.3 version, like the one from DrPill above.

    2. Good call on the birthday event. For now, the twinsex scene you're seeing is a default because the content isn't really complete there. The more scenes I add, the better they'll match the slaves you have.

  11. One previously reported bug - pregnant slaves from the volunteer event giving birth to their first child, and the child being moved to an orphanage - is still there in 6.3.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What exactly do you mean by this? Does the event not make sense? Or is the child being moved to the orphanage the problem?

      Delete
    2. Mechanically, each separate event makes sense. First, you get a desperate mother-to-be come to you, and you enslave her. Then, the right number of weeks later, she gives birth. As is normal for slaves giving birth, the child is moved to an orphanage.

      Lore-wise, there's a problem. The desperate mother says she wants you to enslave her INSTEAD of her child being enslaved once she gives birth. The weekly update that mentions her give birth should have the "and the child is moved into an orphanage as normal" text replaced with something like "In accordance to your initial contract with [slave name], her child is spared from the slave orphanage life" instead.

      I could have sworn there was a different line in the weekly update for this event, one that didn't reference the orphanage, in earlier versions - but I might be misremembering things. Bottom line; the FIRST birth of the pregnant slave you get from the "desperate mother" event should NOT have the same weekly update text as the subsequent ones.

      Delete
    3. Ah, I see. This was poor writing on my part. The girl was intended to be afraid she'd miscarry, not afraid she'd lose the child. She knows it's going to an orphanage. Fixed to make that more clear.

  12. I started playing around with pregnancy to mix things up this time. Kind of interesting. It's funny to imagine pregnant amputees just wobbling along the floor and trailing milk around.



    Got a slave whose name was APaula when it should have been Paula.

    Amputees who are on enhancers get things like "She massages her dick uncomfortably. The A-HGH must be having an effect,..." and "She massages her butt uncomfortably. The A-HGH must be having an effect,..." and "She massages her tits uncomfortably. The A-HGH must be having an effect,...". They shouldn't be able to massage anything without arms.

    Even though the slave is supposed to have H-cup tits, the description for milking her said "Orena's absurd mammaries would fill a G-cup."

    Milking event assumes the slave has been implanted with drugs, and it doesn't really make sense if the slave got pregnant naturally through pregnancy.

    Pregnancy event and milking event don't take into account if the slave is an amputee or mute.

    Amputee, Play with her tits, "With your cock between her breasts, you squash her tits together to form a nice lubricated channel, and ride back and forth on her." This description assumes the slave has big breasts even if the slave has a small chest like an A-cup.

    Got the "Public Favorite" nickname for a slave that I never whored out or made serve the public. Should slaves that have never worked a Job even get nicknames?

    I think mindbroken slaves should get at least one random event, something to affirm that they are still there and alive. Maybe having them used as an example to other slaves and increase their obedience?

    1. Good reports, thanks. Surgery reactions need to be rewritten for more unusual slaves; known content gap. Everyone needs more random events, including mindbroken slaves.

  13. Another logistical incongruity: a slave acquired from the "ignorant immigrant" event, mentioned in her lore as not knowing how the slave system works, can trigger the "buy my daughter" event, where she'll mention her daughter being put into a slave orphanage 18 years ago.

    1. Proving, of course, that I don't know my own lore. Good catch.

      Delete
    2. You can still have the "ignorant immigrant" trigger "daughter", but you'd need to insert different lore - maybe something about the immigrant mother being a migrant worker who initially wanted to send money back to her family and now decided to have them come earn it too, or her deciding to bring more family members over by having the master enslave them too.

  14. Fearful shemale slave whoring: "After so much anal pain, she now dislikes being buttfucked" cancelled out her cumslut sexuality, then repeated every week until she reached Obedient, at which point she kept flicking between buttslut and normal as one week her highly-trafficked asshole made her a buttslut and the next the anal pain made her not one.

    I think something's odd about head girls teaching whoring/entertaining. It seems like the messages saying that a student of the head girl has been taught whoring actually increase their entertaining skills, but they still get the message after entertainer is maxed out. So they get taught whoring forever without ever learning about it.

    The basic piercings aren't getting reactions, only the second level in each slot. Might be intended?

    If you buy a pregnant slave from the random event, if they later request you buy a relative of theirs that relative will be lactating.


    Chastity belt/anal virgin weirdness:

    The huge-tit shower event doesn't respect chastity belts if you choose to join her in the shower. If you choose to fuck her, it doesn't respet the chastity belt or take anal virginity, despite 'You leave a load of cum in each of her holes'

    The milk-cow event doesn't respect chastity belts if you choose to have some fun with her while she's in the milker. The 'fuck her in public' option doesn't mention which hole you're fucking, but it doesn't take anal virginity off girls in chastity belts.

    The 'master please fuck me' scene with bio-females wearing chastity belts doesn't take anal virginity.

    Bio-female anal virgins wearing chastity belts being used as fucktoys: "Since you haven't yet decided to sell or take her tight little anus, you let her confine her efforts to her mouth and pussy."

    The 'assrape her' scene when a slave asks you to fuck her doesn't take anal virginity. May be related to the chastity belt she was wearing.

    Massive tit event: 'use her' doesn't respect chastity belts. 'Massage her' doesn't mention which hole is getting fucked, but doesn't take anal virginity with a chastity belt.

    1. 'She now dislikes being penetrated' from a disobedient slave being whored doesn't actually add a quirk. Is it just making her 'normal sexuality' more so?

      "It's the end of her shift as a public sex slave" is showing up for whoring, and for slaves with normal sexuality.

      Shemale whores with expert anal skills are getting 'her anal skills improve' over and over without actually reaching master. Teaching them personally gets them to master straight away.

      "Since between them they aren't devoted enough to enthusiastically perform an incestuous threesome" on twins with max devotion. One shemale, one not.


      Suggestion: two family members as fucktoys further boosts reputation in the same way that they amplify each other when whoring or on public use.

      Delete
    2. The rules summary says that permissive rules cost 300, but it actually costs 200. Not sure which is incorrect.

      From the 'orphan selling herself' event - "She stands in front of your dest", should be 'desk'.

      The daughter in a mother-daughter pair gets the 'they aren't devoted enough' scene when you try to fuck her with the mother even if you get the full enthusiastic scene when choosing 'fuck her with her daughter' on the mother's profile.


      Suggestion: glory hole assignment - variation on the hole that makes a little money and/or renown, teaches some skills, and lets you naturally induce cumsluttery and delight cumsluts.

      Delete
    3. It is possible to bleach already-bleached assholes.

      Something is odd with the description of the clothes worn with slaves set to public use wearing uncomfortable straps. When I end week or go into and out of her page they're sometimes wearing one of these on the menu:
      "Her posture correction gear forces her to constantly present her holes."
      "Her latex suit makes her look like the perfect fucktoy."
      "Her leather corset is forcing her to thrust out her tits."
      The corset and latex suit ones don't match the descriptions for the corsets and latex suits you can make a slave wear. By the way, the 'posture correction gear' talks about multiple holes even with a shemale, but I don't know if you're looking for bug reports for content you can't normally access.

      Ironing out quirks defaults back to 'break her will' after success, even on devoted slaves where it should be 'build her devotion'.

      'See if your hands can go around her waist' from the unnaturally narrow waist event on a shemale: "displaying each of her delectable holes"

      Delete
    4. 'Give her a chance to impress' when acquiring already-obedient slaves is taking anal virginity.


      Suggestion:

      Alternate descriptions for self-contradictory traits. Eg: Hates Anal/Buttslut, 'Her vocal disapproval of anal sex poorly conceals her inner buttslut' or something.
      Other pairings like this: Hates Penetration/Nympho, Hates Men/Cumslut, Hates Oral/Cumslut, Arrogant/Submissive, Bitchy/Humiliation - all these pairings are possible, and not all that rare if you look through the pre-owned auction.

    6. For what it's worth, you're clearly playtesting this game more thoroughly than I do. In partial compensation, I automatically take your suggestions into more serious consideration; if you'd like any other kind of recognition let me know. You seem pretty good at suggesting logical expansions to content I already intend.

      I have taken on board and expanded on your description ideas for conflicting quirks and fetishes. This was always my intent, but I hadn't gotten around to it; the fun of describing a slave who loudly protests that she hates anal while loving it in truth is too much.

      A glory hole-like assignment was always intended, mostly to give mindbroken slaves something they're ideal for. Since you suggested it I bumped it up the priority list for 0.1.07.

  15. Spelling error - "They, you suggest, can keep" when I intervened with the strip club owner closing shop in events.
    I choose: "Help set them up independently".

    "You offer a way out of their situation. They, you suggest, can keep working in the now-vacant shop if they work together to pay the rent. They can move into a couple of vacant rooms nearby that you can easily have set up as a bunkhouse. You'll collect a little more rent, and they'll have a second chance. They accept it with gratitude. It's quite likely they'll either fail or have to accept being whores rather than strippers, but that's not your concern. Two vacant rooms have been cheaply turned into apartments."

    I would like to see more nickname varieties, and eye color options including the ability to change their eye color.

  16. Impregnating virgin amputee result in this event:
    "You call her over so you can take her fertile, virgin pussy. She accepts your orders without comment and presents her virgin pussy for fertilization. She gasps in shock when she feels your hot seed. She walks away with roiling emotions, absently rubbing her stomach. Since she is already well broken, this new connection with her master increases her devotion to you. Her pussy has been broken in, and there's a good chance she's pregnant."

  17. God damn this is a fun game so far, keep up the great work :)

    That said, a couple bugs I've noticed:
    1. removing a girl's breast implants has a chance to increase her areolae as if you were *adding* implants.
    2. Having a girl whore while wearing a chastity belt doesn't prevent her from gaining vaginal experience, despite acknowledging that she's limited to anal in the sentence immediately before ("The stress of being limited to her anus for penetrative sex is tough on her health. She shows diligence, and with so many cocks to service, her vaginal skills improve.")

  19. I am not sure if this is a glitch or intended but my shemale girls never seem to move off of hormone therapy even after 30 turns of taking NOTHING BUT high doses of female hormones.

    Another annoying bug is when you reach high enough renown, and can Acquire other slaveowners' stock, after buying the catalog and buying a slave, if you buy the same slave again it will charge you the amount even if still have her and reset her stats to when you first bought her.

    1. Intended: some of the physical effects still have an impact no matter how long you've had her on them. Which makes sense, because her body doesn't produce them naturally. Successful MtF transitioners in real life are usually on permanent hormone treatment, I understand.

  21. Bio-female with a pseudophallus clit fucking another slave scene, choosing 'fuck the ass of the bottom': "the other slave is riding X's dick"

    Got a request from $recruiterMother.slaveName to buy her daughter for ¤$slaveCost.

    'Change training plan > None' sometimes gets stuck on a specific slave, and instead of setting the plan to no girl resets it to that specific slave. Started when I ironed out the Odd quirk on the slave in question, could be related to that. Setting the training plan on another slave and selling them set the plan to no slave, but the None button still reset it to the formerly odd slave. Save file: http://www.filedropper.com/bugrepsave

    Possibly intentional: virgins aren't getting the 'muscles' event.

    'Sentence her to public use' option on the 'vocal disobedience' event *is* taking virginities, but it doesn't mention it in the event text.

    'Abuse her' isn't respecting chastity belts.

    The 'see if your hands can fit around her waist' option in the 'devoted waist' event isn't respecting chastity belts.

    Events will either need to be completely rewritten or disallowed for amputees: 'devoted shemale', 'slave dick on slave', 'devoted waist'.

    'Spank her' option on the 'vocal disobedience' event mentions thighs for an amputee.

    'Use her holes' on a shemale amputee mentions her thighs.

    Muscular shemale on hormones, 'muscles' event, 'reward her for her gains': "now-softening penis". Powerfuck: "her erection".


    Anal virginity roundup:

    'Fuck the top' on the event where a shemale is fucking another slave doesn't take anal virginity.

    Gently fucking a shemale slave during the 'master please fuck me' event isn't taking anal virginity.

    'Enter the shower and take her' and 'see if she can do that while you take her' options on the 'shemale slave sucking her own dick in the shower' event don't take anal virginity.
