Quick notice:

To those of you who missed out on the beta and did donate, I'll send it tomorrow. I apologize for making you wait.

Unfortunately I'm still sick and had to deal with a highly disconcerting personal crisis. Namely, I live in an old farmhouse. It comes with perks but was not built by professionals and is very, very old. Thus when my bathroom's floor rotted out and my toilet half fell through the floor without warning I was displeased to say the least, especially because the problem extends to my bedroom. I have no idea how much it'll cost to fix, but I certainly don't have the money anyway. And no, I'm not asking you all to give me that money. For now I'll just have to live without my own bathroom and use the other one and live with a warped, messed up bedroom floor. If I do get it fixed I'll have to figure out somewhere else to live for a while. Needless to say, it'll be hard to work on my adult game if I'm staying somewhere without a lot of privacy. I hope that is not the case. Thankfully my girlfriend has been doing a great job of cheering me up via sexy costumes, so I'm not terribly down about things.

For now things are still on schedule for a December release. Once I'm done with this stupid being-sick thing I'll go and crunch on the new content. I AM still active in directing the art team, at least to the extent that I am directing directions their way when I'm not resting in bed. Things need to get done regardless of what happens in life, and I apologize for not getting back to those of you who had issues getting your beta sooner.

One of the things I'm getting done is preview art for the heroines prior to battle. Non sex-scene pics, basically.

Here's one of Nanshe prior to battle inked and drawn by the artist Mindwipe:




I think it'll add a lot to the game. The finished version will have color and a background, of course, and all the heroines will get one. Get hyped!

(I love evil Nanshe, she's just the sexiest.)

Also a sidenote: Kudos to Mr Haitch, a friend from hypnohub, who included Branda in a harem scene sketch he recently did. She's on the far right. Let him know if you like it!

I also spent a morning drawing up a quick pic for Hypnohub's Halloween contest prior to all the chaos. You can see that picture here. My art skills still aren't up to project quality, alas, but I work on it when I have the time in hopes of being able to contribute more substantially to the project.

Later all!

  1. OMG that line art by Mindwipe is perfect.

    As for your artwork, it's a lot better than mine, I had to resort to learning 3D modeling using freestyle to get nice line art. Because I have no skill with a pen/pencil.... -_-;

    1. LOL I was so stunned by the artwork I completely overlooked the part where your shitter fell though the floor.

      That sucks man. Housing is simply not affordable in NA.

      Anyway I hope you can get someone that will help you repair your house for a discount -_-;

  2. Sweet Jesus...

    I've seen game devs bloging about injuries, depression, boob operations, being homeless, serving in the army/navy/circus and more: but this is the first time for: 'welp my shitter fell thru the ceiling and f*cked up my bedroom in the process'

    Seriously, take this to tumblir and you'll strike gold in donations! XD

  3. That's terrible about the bathroom. I've had nightmares of stuff like that happening since it would ruin me.

  4. Hope life stops dealing you curveballs soon, but if not.. choke up on the bat and swing away! Hopefully you'll knock it out of the park.

  5. UGH hope that works out OK for ya!

    In going through the game so far, I ran into an ODD bug: the guard for Tasa won't let me through after supposedly getting the pass. It doesn't show that I have it either...makes it hard to continue beta-testing when you need something that's missing!

    Barring that, love the new content and the new artwork! Hoping the toilet crashing isn't too much of a problem, and doesn't affect things too badly.

  7. To tell you the truth Cypress, while you may not be looking for donations to fix a serious structural problem with your house, they also probably wouldn't be very difficult to get. You've got a good product, and with the switch to the new coding system the product should get even better (certainly the artwork you've shown us looks like a big improvement, at least). I've seen adult game projects that frankly just aren't in the same ballpark quality-wise, that get large amounts of donations through Patreon (Breeding Season, for one, has a product I would certainly call inferior to Overwhored but still manages to bring in $24k per month in donations).

    As for the structural problem itself....is it a problem with the joists rotting out or is it just the floor itself? If it's the floor and not the joists it should be much less troublesome to fix, but if the joists are rotting out then you've got a serious structural problem.

    1. Also, while I'm thinking about it....if it's just the subfloor that's rotting out, that's something you can fix yourself if you're a little bit handy. Not the easiest thing in the world, I admit, but significantly cheaper than hiring someone else to do it. It's been awhile since I've done it myself, but if you keep an eye on channels like DIY you'll eventually catch some tips on doing it yourself. Think Home Depot may run the occasional seminar on things like that for prospective do-it-yourselfers.

      Again though, if it's the joists that are rotting then you're in much, much more trouble. That's not a 1-person job by any stretch of the imagination and your best bet would be to get professional help....which obviously is not cheap.

  9. Nanshe is best girl. That is all. :D

    Cypress isn't on the IRC channel he started for a long time > check blog to see how things are > new beta is out, was sick, toilet fell through floor.... Wait what.

    Definitely looking forward to a December release.

    1. I imagine it will be whenever it's ready. Considering his shitter fell though the floor, I would expect delays.
