  1. "Alternate Bad Ending to Mass Bimbofication ending added if you do it twice in a row."
    So wait, if I do NG > Mass Bimbofication > NG+ > Mass Bimboficiation, that leads to a Bad End?

    1. Yeah. It'll make sense when you do it. :P

    2. Oh, I didn't doubt that.
      I was just curious so I had understood what you meant right.

    >grapple scene for Cassandra
    Ah, here.

    1. Eventually, yeah. I've been working on getting all the play scenes done for existing slaves in the last couple updates.

  4. Saw Funtime Sarah has another scene, will this be included in the public update?

    1. Not on this one, unfortunately. I didn't have enough time after getting the art to write the scene for it. It will be in the next update.

      Delete
    2. Take your time, Doug.
      Also, teacher play time when? (I know, I know, "when there's art for it". Just asking if it's high or low in the priority queue).

      (Also, I hope there'll eventually gonna be some MC/Rack/Tiff threesome in store - given the latter two's backstory)

      Delete
    3. The problem is, I don't know when Roku will finish the rest of the mysterious stalker's art, and she needs to finish that before she can start on the teacher's art. She started working on a webcomic and so has not been working on the game art very much lately.

    2. Usually the 20th of each month - always one week after each patreon release (those are usually the 13th of each month).

      You're not being as stupid as you think, answer to your question is buried in the comments of older releases.

      Delete
    3. Patreon ($1+): 13th.
      Free for everyone: 20th.

  6. Question, will more storyline for Erin be added after the extra monster hunts? And what about giving Eric a sex-change potion (hey, not even new art needed for that - they are twins) for some nice twin action? (now, THAT would DEFINITELY need art) ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I am planning more of Erin and Eric's story but hadn't had time to continue them in this update. Eric's alternate forms are ready though for when I do have time to get to them. Catching up on all the play scenes for all potential slaves is pretty time consuming. xD

    1. I know - I do realize the potential for scenes is HUGE. You're doing a very good job of making a good game.
      I once mentioned to you that I am not at liberty to be your patron :( which means that the only help I can provide for you is bug chasing, feedback and encouragement. Have a bit of the latter. ^^;

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I actually have a lot of scenes I have rough outlines and resources for that I just haven't had the time to write yet. xD

      Also, no worries. I don't expect everyone who plays to pay. If did I'd be selling the game instead of making it free. xD

  8. I love how there's 20+ comments and the game's not even released for the public yet...

  9. 3 things:
    1: I'm not sure if it's because I use an old savefile, but is it intentional that the save crystal is now on the right side instead of at the top?
    2: When playing with Needy Sarah, there's 2 empty boxes of dialogue right at the end.
    3: There's a typo when playing with Tough Sarah. The Protagonist says "We'll keep trainIIng later," instead of "we'll keep trainIng later." (Typo is double I).

    1. Saving using Slot 1 causes you to automatically move to the Town. Not a big issue, but it did throw me off the first time it happened. (Not sure if it's intentional. If so, ignore it!)

      Delete
  10. Apparently, talking to your slaves = magic.
    Did Bimbo World NG+.
    Chose to team up with Molly. Enslaved Val in the hallway. Put her in slot 3. Headed to my room to change her to Bimbo personality. The icons were now in the upper left corner. I thought nothing of it.
    Headed to town, spoke to Bimbo Val, enslaved Sarah (Grapple) and headed back to my room (as I wanted to change her personality).
    The icons are now on the right side (like they were in previous version) again.
    Me: ...Wait what?

    I'm gonna do a fresh NG and see if that happens again later. I have to do some things first (such as shopping).

    ReplyDelete
  11. Okay, Val and Molly are bugged... Heavily.
    What makes me think that?

    Used a late 0.36 save in which I had only enslaved Val to prepare to try out the Bimbo World Bad End.
    Saw that her 8th Destructive spell is Hidden. "Neat."
    Grinded up to Tornado (which now gives 150 Proficiency instead of 70, so that's nice).
    Suddenly, her 8th spell isn't Hidden. "Weird, all I did was grind with Tornado but w/e."
    Reached ~5800 Proficiency. Still no 7th or 8th spell. "Huh..."
    Completed Bimbo World Ending.
    Enslaved Val in the hallway (as I tagged with Molly on NG+).
    Check her spells. Still says it's unlocked on the 8th spell. "Okay then!"
    Grind 8k-ish Proficiency. Still no 7th spell.

    "God damn it."

    Fresh save.
    Enslaved Val first chance I got.
    Spammed Tornado to grind. I'm at 10k Destructive Proficiency with Val. And she still doesn't have her 7th spell.
    "Fuck it. Let's check her Physical spell."
    Trained on 7th floor with her Physical spells.
    Reached 200ish Proficiency.
    Her 3rd spell slot is gone.
    Me: What the hell?

    Decided to bring Molly with me instead of Val.
    The Rest icon on Group Heal bug is back... Great!
    Suddenly, I hover over Group Heal.
    "Recover."
    Me: "Recover"? That's a new one...
    Says it'll use some of her Stamina to restore another character's Stamina. "Neat."
    I use it and I recover a small amount of HP and Stamina.
    Molly's turn comes around again. Check Group Heal again and... It's now Group Heal again.
    I move my mouse slightly below Group Heal. A literal hidden spell is there - it's the Recover spell, but the icon isn't present.
    Sometimes, I'm allowed to use the Recover spell, but other times, I can't. If I can use Recover, Group Heal isn't possible to choose but if I CAN choose Group Heal, then I can't use Recover.

    So yeah.

    1. Ok, I'm sure some of what you are experiencing are legit bugs but a couple things you mentioned have not had the code changed at all from the last version. I double checked the icon for Group Heal for instance and it is still fixed. I think your computer or browser may have mixed some things up; possibly loading some of the game data from older versions of the game from the Cache? I am going to try to work on figuring out which of the bugs you listed are things that are actually broken, in the meantime you might want to try using F5 to force load the newest version and start from a new game to see if that helps.

      Delete
    2. The Val one was my fault: she had ~5k Proficiency while Sarah had 10k (I didn't check who I was paying attention to).

      Regarding the Cache: It's possible - my browser sometimes says that the Cache is cleared (but isn't - I once had to clear it 4 times in a row for it to work...)


      Gonna do a fresh save again and see if it works (I'm gonna make sure to save on all 3 slots with a new savefile so there's no way there can be an old version around).

      If it's my computer: Wouldn't surprise me. I'm not an Acer fan...

      Delete
    3. I've got fixes for the typo, late ending scene, and the leaving the room when saving bug fixed. No idea if the icons sometimes being on stop or sometimes being on the right is a bug or not; trying to test for it but haven't had it mix up yet.

      Delete
    4. Thanks for that. Also, I found out a typo I didn't list earlier (sorry!)

      It's fairly minor, at least:
      When doing the Bimbo World Bad End, when it says Val is about to say something, it says [ instead of ] at the end (so... We're not finishing the first part but starting another?)

      Delete
    5. >Ok, I'm sure some of what you are experiencing are legit bugs but a couple things you mentioned have not had the code changed at all from the last version.
      I've been having the same issues with Group Heal and Recover since several versions ago.

      I can also confirm that the icons do jump right and left - literally :)

      Also, minor bug, if in the first Val conversation where you can flirt and then confuse her, if you do both spells one right after another without hitting space to read a line, you get the whole flirt conversation instead of going to thhe confusion one.

      Delete
  12. Not sure if mentioned elsewhere (ignore this if so):
    Val's 3rd physical spell (Grass Knuckles I think?) has jumbled text.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm also not getting the 3rd physical slot for Val. Not an empty slot: just plain no slot. Using a grinded savegame, Val is level 34, physical 3440

    1. also noticed negative stamina no longer locks the character into an infinite wait of ever-increasing negative numbers of "time for next action", but now just forces a rest. Nice. Very nice.

      Delete
    2. I got it on a fresh save - you need 150 physical proficiency for it.

      Delete
    3. damn lack of edit button, damn finding new likely bug right after posting...
      willingly entered negative stamina in level 15 with Rosal, Val and Sarah against allure fish. Val started being able to act normally even if at negative stamina, casting spells at regular intervals (with the counter behaving without rest times). Her stamina started into negative triple digits, and Overgrowth started dealing massive NEGATIVE damage.
      Whiskey.
      Tango.
      Foxtrot.

      Delete
    4. Earlier I had fixed the problem with having accidentally mis-aligned Val's third physical spell to appear in the second slot. You may need to refresh the game to get the correct position.

      By a total coincidence, I was just editing all the spells to prevent that exact situation. So, that should be fixed in a moment when I have it uploaded.

      Delete
  14. Not a bug but a sugestion. We've got a lot of repeateable "play" scenes this update. That reminds me, we got many superb scenes that we only get to see once in the game and which would be nice to be able to see repeatedly.

    It would be a nice adition. And most do make sense. Sarah's waiting-for-you-in-bed scene, for example, should be repeateable if you are dating her, after all. Or, there's no reason you couldn't cast Grapple at Julia or Sarah again at the school, or at Erin at home. Hey, you could even be able to re-cast Grapple at Cassandra through the magic menu in the dungeon if you are alone or with a slave (much like you give the book to Sarah the same way).
    Now, ordering Bimbo Val to repeatedly make out with enslaved Rack...

    1. I vaguely remember him mentioning at some point that he wants/plans on making the chest in Dan/Rosa's room work as an art gallery where you can see whatever art you've already unlocked (though I'm unsure on the scenes part).

    2. Yeah, that also could work. But you'll have to agree, the other way is more amusing ;-)

      Delete
  15. So, Grass Knuckles is being weird.
    First, it had jumbled text (mentioned earlier).

    Now, when I try to use it, the icon lands on "Rest" though the spell works as normal.
    I tried this on 3 different webbrowsers and for all of them, it lands on "Rest" but the spell will go through as normal if used.

    1. Sorry about that; I fixed the first bug and caused a new one. I have a new new fix uploaded now.

      Delete
    2. Same here, using standalone player and currentrly available "play it now" version. When hovering mouse over GK icon, I get "rest" text and description instead.

      Also, room icons jump not only right and left, but also top and side. On reload, they get superimposed one over another, and get back normal on re-eentering room. Game load screen has the icons at weird places instead of lined and inside the box. List of icon placement problems is very extensive.

      My advice is, if possible, to undo the changes of this update and leave them as they were in v.36 - they were in consistent locations thorough the game. Currently, you'd need to devote a LOT of work into rewritting their positions - time that would be better spent in writting new scenes. ;-) Of course, if the new positions are because some behind-the-scenes necessity, then you're SOL. :(

      Delete
    3. So, currently the problem with the text jumbling and spell weirdness is that I at some point got X and Y backwards for the spell list coordinates causing some spells to overlap in text. I am trying to sort out what spells are mixed up where right now; but there are a lot of spells.

      @FF I am still in the bug fixing stage of this cycle so fixing it isn't taking time away from writing scenes. Anyways, I have a fix uploaded now for the play now version to stabilize the locations. I just made a game, enslaved three characters and repeatedly walked in and out of the bedroom and their icons have been staying put so far. Will update the gamejolt one when I have the bug fixes finished as it's somewhat of a pain to update the game on there so doing it several times a day doesn't work very well.

      Delete
    4. >3 slaves
      This might be the problem. The savegame I used was a late game with every slave. For reference, I was using the version that was at the play now page at 7:30 AM, not the one from download link.

    5. I noticed TWO Rack icons when going for a fast Bimbo end with both her first lesson and the "Val is a bimbo" chat pending. Bug, or deliberate?As in, is that the reason you're fiddling with icons? If so (as in, if giving the player the chance to choose which converstion to have), FUCK YEAH!

      Delete
    6. If you got two Ms. Rack icons, you are playing a cached version of the game. I found and fixed that bug while testing a couple hours ago. Try forcing it to reload and then see if it is still giving you an issue. I'll enslave a few more people on my save and see how that affects things in the meantime.

      Delete
  16. At the ''Bad'' bimbo ending Dan's profile and big blue speach box cuts of the whole picture making Val pretty much unseeable.

  17. So, was gonna go ahead and grab Cassandra (Julia route).
    Fight starts as normal, but she immediately said "What are you doing?" (implying I had used Boost once on her). Using Boost 3 more times caused the battle to end, as normal.
    I'd assume it's a bug but rather safe than sorry.

    I have already cleared my cache before you ask.

  19. So attempted to get Doll Sarah.
    Got her Affection over 25, used the stone spell on her during the conversation, attended Jane's Private lessons and I don't get the prompt in the streets. Am I missing something or is it a bug?
    I'm playing as Rosa if that makes a difference.

  20. Just found out there's a Contract plotline.
    That was neat.

    Decided to sign it (might have been a terrible idea?) and it said another scene with her was present. "Huh, maybe the 2nd class (backstory)" I figured.

    Same scene played out again.
    "...That's weird."
    Decided to NOT sign it (though I did steal it - not sure what good THAT is gonna do me) and the scene stopped popping up.

  21. Not sure if intentional (and I admittingly forgot if it was mentioned before - if so, sorry!)

    When you enslave Dr. Tiff (using Ms. Rack), if you talk to Tiff about her fetishes, it's possible to re-watch the scene. However, asking for more backstory (as in, pissing her off by choosing the 2nd option first chance you have) does NOT make the scene repeatable.

  22. Not sure if intentional (or if it was mentioned):
    When talking to (slave Bimbo) Val in the streets, you're automatically transported to the school.

    6. Huh, I must have misunderstood you back then. It was actually a pretty straightforward bug; I just didn't change the room variable to match the lake location.

    7. Possibly? Well, glad to hear it's fixed regardless.

  23. One thing has been bugging me for some time about Ashley (if it's fixed in the upcoming version - ignore this comment!)

    For whatever reason, all her 3 initial spells (not counting the third one; so Slap/Grapple/Rapid Punch) gives 5 Proficiency.
    I understand that Slap does (being a basic spell) but it's kinda off to have a 4th tier spell only give 5...

    1. Yeah, I had a mistake in the code and it only gave proper proficiency for the first player (which you might notice if you cast Grapple as Dan/Rosa and got more proficiency) Will get that fixed.
