Progressive Progress

Well, this week I managed to crunch down and get a little bit of time to work on the game. I managed to get a pretty large amount of work done for the time I had. Princess Melita's path is almost done; there's simply hunting down Tasa's supporters in Sayda left to do.

I also managed to compile a sprite sheet of some girls in crystals that I got from gameclover forever ago, but I'm contemplating making some custom ones so the girls can be nude and have more variety. It's a serious pain to make sprites (as it is time consuming) but it isn't especially difficult. I've figured out how to make the sprites of naked girls floating in crystals so I may or may not do it. I may have to set aside a day for it; the next version will have a scene on a boat. I have no boat sprites.

Also, I set up a fully functional orgasmic energy upgrade system. There's only two options - upgrade healing and learn the shade spell - but it's easy for me to expand it now that I have it set up properly. Getting a system to harvest energy from the girls in the crystals and making sure you get the appropriate amount of energy for capturing girls has yet to be done.

I won't be working two jobs forever; one of these is strictly seasonal and it doesn't last that long. I have zero clue how long it'll be.

Some super-cool news: I recently got a sketch back of the dwarven heroine, Audr. Her sex scenes will be SUPER hot. Her character design got a bit of tweaking too.

The halfling heroine is supposed to be the next one, but I don't have anyone doing her art yet. I've been really trying to find a skilled shortstack type artist that is in budget. I've seen some hopefuls, but it's hard to say what'll happen.

If anyone has a suggestion for an artist, feel free. Just keep in mind my commissions have to be under $50.

  1. What if someone donates money you could use for the commissions? Also, nice to hear about progress on the girls in the crystals, and I hope your jobs go well.

  2. If someone gives me a large sum of money to commission a specific artist I cannot guarantee that I will be able to hire that specific artist. They may not fit with the art style or may not be available for commission.

    Moreover, I want to ensure that I have all the money to complete the full list of extras first. Some artists cost three times as much as most commissions for Overwhored do. And heroines get two pictures (three if the extras get fully funded)


    While there are a lot of great shortstack artists out there, I don't know if I can justify reserving a ton of money for just one thing.

  3. Hello Cypress,

    I have a friend who is a pretty good graphic designer and comic illustrator. I'll present to him some Overwhored pictures and see if he can do the same for that payment bracket.

    Keep up the good coding work. Your game is great. :-)

    1. Hello again,

      He's interested. However, he needs to do some things first and will say something to me in two days aprox.

      In the meantime *I think* he would like to know how would you pay for those minor changes in a main picture. You know, changing the expression of the gil, adding some "features" in a very specific area of the picture, etc. I think those are great to give the scene a proper development, but I don't think he would do them for free.

      If you want to talk about this in private tell me and I'll send you my email.

      Kind regards.

  5. By the way... could you consider to make a script to have a key that could hide/unhide the text in H-scenes?

    1. There is one. Press F8 during scenes to hide the text.

      I'll need to say that explicitly in-game somewhere, and put it in a file with the controls.

    2. It would be good to do it during the first sex scene with the three slaves.

  6. Excellent additions to the game, I'll be waiting for the next release to try them out :-) Keep up the good work!

  7. So would we have to replay the whole game to get the other princess or would we be able to go back and do it after the fact?

    1. Make a save right before the decision. Then you can just go back to that.

      Ver 0.2.6 saves SHOULD work in 3.0.

      Delete
    2. And if we already went past the decision? Can we just go back and there be an option to hop through a time hole or something to do the alternate path too and then go on with the game?

  8. "Also, I set up a fully functional orgasmic energy upgrade system. There's only two options - upgrade healing and learn the shade spell - but it's easy for me to expand it now that I have it set up properly."

    Awesome, I've been looking forward to this for a while.

    In future, will you be able to upgrade all your cool "Free no-cost overmind powers" or what?

    1. Yes, but I'm carefully considering the angle I want to go with them. They were originally pretty overpowered, so I've got to consider how to handle it.

      Delete
    2. Cool, cool.

      I came in from a pretty early time, (near the beginning, or so I thought) but I don't think I came in at a time early enough to see the free powers in any fit state at all for them to be considered "overpowered".

      I guess you might be worrying that if you buff them enough with orgasmic energy they might get back into a state of being too strong, (a state in which I've never seen them) but eh, I'm sure it'll eventually work out fine.

    1. It's safe to presume there will be boobs,
      and let's face it - if there are boobies it can only get better. :)

  10. I found a game crashing bug. When you go to use the moo potion if you leave the dining hall before giving her the food and return it freezes the women in the doorway and the event locks the game up when the rebels attack.

    1. Then if you try to go back up the vent it tries to restart the event for the moo potion.

      Delete
    2. He knows about the vent bug, but hasn't released the bug fix for that since you don't need to go up the vent a second time.

      Delete
    3. I'm not too bothered by repeat reports. Better that than missing a bug because someone's afraid I already know it exists.

      Delete
    4. Very true indeed.

      Delete
    5. you make a good point Cypress.

      Delete
    6. It also helps in case they forgot about it in the slew of other reports or projects they're working on.

      Delete
    7. Yes. Don't trust my memory. I actually have that bug fixed but I do forget on occasion.

      Delete
  11. When next version of the game will be released? How many weeks or months?

    1. Depends on how much time I get off of work and how much I really want to do; there's a ton I can do in terms of shoring up various areas of the game and adding in optional bits.

      I can't give an exact date, unfortunately, but I'll be working as hard as I can to see it done soon.
