Trying for a beta next week

Well, I went and tried to get as much done as I could this weekend, but between catching up on things and the fact that I'll be returning to two jobs for the rest of this week (hopefully not much longer) I will do my best to get the beta out by next Monday.

After everything that's happened lately, I'm reeeeeaaaally running on fumes. Recent events are really no excuse for not getting more work done, but I get the feeling that once I've taken care of 3.0 I'm going to need a week or two of not working on Overwhored to just reset my brain.

In other news, paypal is allowing donations but wants things "verified" all the sudden. I don't know if this'll result in issues. I've been expecting them to shut me down at any time for some time, as they often do independent game makers. I intend to make a SFW edit of the game called "Overmind" (Which will be less work than you'd think) so I can accept donations on no-porn networks like WePay. Having a SFW version will also help with Paypal if there's a dispute. I can just point to the SFW version and say that's what you're donating to. That I spend my money on artists so they can draw porn is an unrelated thing.

You may not see the orgasmic energy system fully set up in this next version (It'll be functional, but I might not be able to get all the points in), but the Princess Melita path will definitely be working.

See you then!

  1. You're allowed a few weeks rest after the next release, on the condition that we still receive updates on Mondays during your break.

      Hell, I'd read it.

    1. Of course you can! Anyone who donates gets access to the beta and can be a beta tester. The amount doesn't matter. I've had donations of less than $1 and over $450. Though the big spenders are super awesome people everyone should love, every donator gets equal access to the beta and put in the credits if they want.

      I value EVERYONE that supports the project. Because you're the people I make the game for in the first place.

  3. The paypal thing isn't just you, people I know are having the same problem for mundane things as well.

  4. I agree with the first comment. I'm also bored right now and I would like to ask if you have an opinion on any of the anime out there in the world and on the internet. You don't have to come up with some huge answer about all the anime you have or haven't watched, just bored and curious.

  6. Did you jump versions from 0.2.6 to 3.0 ..?
    Been noticing for a while, but I just assumed you got all mixed up.

    1. Nope. I name my version after the point it has met in my development goals. There are seven rough "phases" in the game. The completed Branda chapter is phase three, so I just name it ver. 0.3. Once I hit 0.7 (all heroine stories done) I'll start really crunching, adding extra optional content I've figured out how to do, and fixing various problems. I'll start going into subnumbers like 0.7.5 more often then.

      Sort of like this update, actually. You won't notice much other than the Princess Melita path, but a lot is being done behind the scenes you'll never know about with this.

      With this done, we'll be at stage 0.3. I don't really know or care how normal developers use the number system, but this is how I'm using it.

  7. Glad you tooth aches are over :-)

    PayPal should not be a problem. The verification is needed when you reach a $$$ treshold and you should be fine as long as you provide them the authentication documents/scans they need.

    Looking forward to the next release, and by all means, take breaks when you need them and don't feel forced to get overworked cause the game will suffer from that as well.

  10. Well, I just recently found your game (I mean like just a few hours ago) and I am in love with it! Mind control has always been a favorite of mine though it almost always leaves a bad taste in my mouth (Basically it's a love-hate thing) but with yours it has a perfect balance in my head! I LOVE IT! I also love that when you're bored you start to make elaborate back stories. I also love that! I wish that I wasn't so poor so I could donate some money to ya. Now I better stop before I go on talking forever. So I hope that your next version comes out soon and that nothing bad happens to ya.

    1. Don't jinx him, the guy already has teeth issues. Also, if you ever feel like it don't hesitate to spread the word of overwhored to forums all across the land of the internet.
