Release 19: Manipulation
This update adds the second tier of Forsaken training actions, which generally have lower Stamina costs, higher Motivation gains, and much greater Expertise rewards. These actions will be the bread-and-butter of most training sessions, even after the later tiers get added. The two main drawbacks to these actions are that they might be too intense for low-corruption Forsaken, and that using them during a playthrough requires purchasing upgrades (the same upgrades which also unlock Suppressor Commander types). The latter requirement isn't very meaningful yet since there's no penalty for doing your training from the main menu, but it will be important for making the first tier of training actions more relevant during campaign mode.
Thanks to everyone for the feedback regarding where development should go next. I'm going to dip into flavor text for one update in order to implement the vignette system (and ideally also a scene viewer) and put some more proper erotica into the game. After that, I'm tentatively looking into alternative corruption paths. I think this order works well since once the framework for vignettes is in, it should be easy to add a vignette or two to updates which otherwise don't have much erotic content, and slowly build up the number of viewable scenes that way. The content of further-off updates still isn't set in stone, so feel free to continue to provide feedback regarding which features are needed most!
I've also opened up a tip jar which can be found on the site sidebar. I won't be putting any of my releases behind paywalls, which means that I don't have anything concrete to give to people who donate. This should be viewed purely as an option for people who are getting enough enjoyment out of the game that they feel it'd be worth paying for.
