Succubus Research Diary version 1.5.0: The Grand Finale

The Serena’s Services story arc ends with a bang! (Disclaimer: no explosions included.)

This content update isn’t called The Grand Finale for no reason. It’s not only the final update but also easily the biggest one. With a word count of over 11000 words, it’s approximately as big as the two previous updates combined! Of course, there’s plenty of new art as well!

The mysterious noblewoman Lady Julie was briefly seen in the previous update, but now it’s time for her to get into action. Be warned that she’s a woman who can’t be easily stopped once she has gotten started…

New things in a nutshell:

  • New character and event art
  • Lady Julie starring in the new 11000 word story
  • New achievements

Other changes and fixes:

  • A handful of typos fixed in previously released content
  • Some small tweaks to in-game menus

How to access the new content?

Serena’s Services can be accessed after reaching Ending 1. You’ll have to play most of the previously released episodes to unlock the final episodes. If you have already done so, Episodes 7 and 8 are waiting for you!

In other news

  • Arcus Plume has a newly-opened developer page on Steam. You’ll get a notification of new releases if you click the follow button.
  • The next Arcus Plume game will be announced in Q1 2023. Lady Julie is one of the major characters of the game! Who knows if there will be other familiar faces as well…

And finally…

Have fun playing The Grand Finale.

As always, comments and reviews are much appreciated.

Coming Soon: The Final Update

The biggest, sexiest, and finalest update is just around the corner! Approximately 85% complete at the time of writing this, the update will be ready for release in early December. It will be more than twice as big as the previous content update and feature the enigmatic Lady Julie. The Serena’s Services story arc will finally reach its conclusion! Stay tuned!

Despite the story arc being called Serena’s Services, Nerisha has a bigger role than Serena this time as well. Hmm…

Edit (Dec 3): The update is essentially complete now. There’s still some work to do like testing and adding the achievements to Steam and writing the announcements etc., but those shouldn’t take very long. Expect to see Lady Julie in action soon…

1.5.0 Underway

I’ve been working on the next Succubus Research Diary update for a while now and it is approximately 30% complete at the moment. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but the ladies pictured above are already finding the update quite… enjoyable. What could it be that they are up to?

Succubus Research Diary version 1.4.0: An Old Friend

Sometimes, a chance encounter with an old friend may open up new possibilities. What lies in store for Serena and Nerisha? Only time will tell…

It’s the first anniversary of the release of Succubus Research Diary, and here’s a little something to celebrate it: the fourth content update! This update adds two more episodes to the “Serena’s Services” story arc and introduces two new characters to the game!

New things in a nutshell:

  • New character and event art
  • New 4500 word story featuring Denice and Julie
  • New achievements

How to access the new content?

Serena’s Services can be accessed after reaching Ending 1. Playing episodes 1 and 3 will unlock the newest episodes.

Have fun!

I always find myself at loss of words when it comes to anniversaries of anything. I guess that passing of time, as such, doesn’t really interest me. It took me half an hour to write this little paragraph that essentially just says that I don’t have anything to say. That’s just how bad I am at commenting anniversaries. Yet I insisted on releasing the update on the ann

But more importantly, this is the first time Lady Julie makes an appearance. She’ll be a major character in the next game, so I hope you like her. I do like her already. There’s nothing like a strong-willed noblewoman who knows what she wants and doesn’t hesitate to do it. I guess that she resembles Melissa (from Lily’s Handmaid) in that respect. She’s not as evil as Melissa, though. Probably.

The Story Continues

If you’re an enthusiastic succubus researcher, there is good news and good news for you. No bad news at all. Yay!

The first piece of good news is that Succubus Research Diary will get still get at least two more free content updates. The next update is coming out in early September!

September 6, 2022: Version 1.4.0: An Old Friend

The release date (or even month) of the fifth content update, however, is still yet to be decided, because it will connect the story of Succubus Research Diary with the yet-to-be-announced next Arcus Plume game. The update will probably come out shortly after the announcement of the new game.

The second piece of good news is that Serena and Nerisha will make their appearance in the above-mentioned next game as well! Not as major characters, though. How do they end up in that game? Play the upcoming updates to find out!

So, yeah, the adventures of the nice but naughty duo will still continue. I like Serena and Nerisha so much that I couldn’t resist the temptation to have them in the new project as well. But what will they have to do with the arranged marriage of Miranda and Eleanor? That remains to be seen…
