How's everyone doing? Got some news, but first I'd like to welcome new patrons. When I started learning about game development while working on Wicked Rouge, I had little hope anyone would be interested in my game, but now, every month new people joining to support this little niche game. Thank you for showing interest in my game, every one of you gives me the joy to see that my work is appreciated. Arigatou
Definitely join the Discord channel if you haven't. I'll bake some cookies for everyone!
I've been working on bugs and planning&working on new features these past few weeks. Skills are almost done and I'm hoping to finish a new training system next week.
I hope it's not too confusing, it's a relatively simple system. Training stages won't be animated, but with lots of variations. More like short mini-events. Each girl will have different texts and pictures commenting on her progression through various stages of sex training and while the courtesans improve her proficiencies, she'll unlock new skills. It should give a good feel of progression in a less time consuming/grinding manner.
Different customers will have different preferences for services and needs. This is where general skills will come to play. Every customer could be serviced (entertained not sex-related service) by the courtesan, but to earn extra-big pay and initiate sex services courtesan will have to charm customers with her general skills. Customers with a higher budget will require higher general skills ranks.
Some customers will have a "rough customer" tag on him meaning they'll drain courtesans energy rather quickly. That's where "rough play" proficiency will come into play reducing that effect by half and in general, having higher proficiency will add a bonus to total tip
Another type of customer I'm planning to add besides peasants and rough customers are ruling class guys. For ruling class guys to appear, players will require to improve establishment reputation, and to serve this type of customer courtesans will require to improve their "refinement" general skill. Serving these types of customers will generate individual courtesans "fame". Fame will improve profits serving the ruling class or above, nobility.
To serve nobility, courtesans will require to unlock certain talents "idol" and "superstar" and follow specific rules to be able to serve nobility.
On the other hand, there are two additional proficiencies. Do you want to develop your pleasure house with extra kinkiness? Train "Exposure" and "Perversion" traits. That'll allow courtesans to serve groups of men during night services and use the stage for kinky erotic performances. It supposes to generate quick money flow, but it will damage courtesans fame required to serve the ruling class and nobility.
The choice is yours which kind of services you want to provide. Kinks to the max with courtesans willing to please men in any possible way or build a prestigious pleasure house for nobility.
New general skill, grace has been added.
Allure - overall useful skill.
Confidence - significant for rough type customers.
Endurance - To max HP/EN.
Refinement - significant for the ruling class and nobility customers.
Grace - significant for stage activity.
Fetishism - general skill-boosting profits from sexual activities.
Plus proficiencies. If the customer requires vaginal sex service, "pleasure" proficiency will boost that type of sex reward.
Probably a lot of things weren't mentioned. Fixed some serious RPGM bug issues with freezing for some computers, adding a new travel menu between internal pleasure house rooms, etc.
I'll be working on "Monthly digital art" for this month tomorrow so expect its release soon. It's a bit late, but I really wanted to be done with some new features before working on it.
