6-9, 69

I’m thinking of having at least 6 characters in the new game I’m working on, but there could be as many as 9. And to be totally honest, I have toyed with the idea of having a whopping 15 characters in the game, but, yeah, that is not going to happen. Too much work… =_=

Once I’m done designing the six most important characters and their outfits etc., I’ll start drawing the backgrounds. While I do that, I will consider if any of the not-so-important characters deserve a promotion to an important character. Hmm… there is at least one likely girl…

And what has 69 to do with anything? It remains to be seen.

Working on something new.

And by something, I mean a game. Or two games.

Despite having spent most of Q4 2021 making content updates for Succubus Research Diary and Lily’s Handmaid, I’ve been planning a new game as well. And now that the said updates have been released, I’ve started working on the new project more seriously. Or, at least, more actively.

But there’s a minor problem.

The problem is (as always) is that I have way too many ideas of what I want to have in that game. Even after countless plot drafts (yes, I didn’t bother counting them), there’s still too much stuff to put in a single game that I could develop in a reasonable time. I may solve this problem as I usually do and just remove a lot of stuff (*cry*), OR, I might make two games with the same central characters.

Hmm…

For now, I’m going to deal with the problem in the way that problems are usually dealt with: postpone it. At this point, it doesn’t really matter whether I will make one or two games around the same theme. There’s a lot of stuff that needs to be done regardless of that decision.

Lily’s Handmaid version 1.4.0: Maid’s Life

The fourth and (probably) the final content update is here! It’s time to visit the Duskheart Family once more!

This update further expands the epilogue as well as the side story about Nadya’s daily nightly life. In other words, the new things are as follows:

  • Epilogic Episode 5
  • Nadya’s Nightlife Episode 4

These two episodes are strongly related to each other, and together they make up a story of about 5000 words. There are new event graphics, of course, and two new achievements for completing the Epilogue and Nadya’s Nightlife.

It is also worth mentioning that during the story Sarah receives the letter that her mother Serena sent her in Succubus Research Diary…

How to access the new content?

To unlock Nadya’s Nightlife Episode 4, you have to play through the previously added content first:

  • Nadya’s Nightlife Episodes 1-3
  • Epilogic Episodes 1-4

You can access Epilogic Episode 5 once you have played Nadya’s Nightlife Episode 4.

Note: If you have already played through all the previous content, you can access Nadya’s Nightlife Episode 4 right away. This should work even if you’re reinstalling the game (unless you have manually deleted the save data).

Oh, and perhaps it’s not yet too late to say this: Happy New Year!

Is Sarah naughtier in these new episodes than ever before… or is it just my imagination? Hmm…

Bath Time?

I’ve been working on two projects recently. One of them is my secret new project. It’s so secret that even I don’t know much about it for sure, so let’s leave it at that for now. The other project is Lily’s Handmaid. It will get another content update. It’s already the fourth one, and it will probably be the last. The theme of the update is bathing… but not quite the everyday kind of bathing. At least for most people. The update will be ready for release in late December or early January.

Succubus Research Diary version 1.2.0: Serena’s Services

The second content update is here! Serena’s Services expands the story in a new direction as well as introduces a new character, Jenny, to the game.

What does Serena do to make the big bucks and what does it have to do with Jenny? It’s time to find out!

New and shiny things:

  • New character, background, and event art
  • New 5000 word story about Serena’s business with Jenny
  • New achievements

How to access the new content?

You will find “Serena’s Services” in the main menu of the game. If you have already reached Ending 1, you can access the new content right away. If not… well, you know what to do. Or not do.

Well, I wrote in the previous post that the update will be ready for release in late November or early December. It’s December 1 now so I guess that it wasn’t a half bad estimate. Much better than those that I’ve made previously…
