Estate : Dominate

Estate : Dominate is an adult visual novel set in a female dominated environment.
It is not a pure femdom game though. Depending on your choices, you can increasingly submit to the women around you, you can do your best to resist their commands, or you can simply do what you must to make it through your summer as a servant at Herrenhaus Stern.

Honestly, better than any explanation is simply testing it out for yourself by playing the free demo version.

Here is the download of the latest version of Estate : Dominate.

You can also always come to the public Discord and talk to me if you have any question before you want to subscribe.

And here's my Twitter.

New tiers | New benefits | Lots of details


Hi everyone,

here are the promised details on how everything will work in the future. I promise this is the last wall of text for a while.

Like I said yesterday, supporting Estate : Dominate will give you two types of benefits:

Support Level Benefits
These are the benefits you receive while you are a Subscriber.
They work just as they always have: You pledge, and you have access to the benefits listed in the tier description until you cancel.

Permanent Support Level Benefits
These are permanent benefits you 'unlock' when your total support reaches $20, and then again when it reaches $100.

This is retroactive: if you have ever pledged at any time since I published the first release, it counts for the Permanent Support Level.

Since permanent benefits don't exist on SubscribeStar, I can't fulfill them here. You will need to join the Discord server for that. It's free, quick and easy to do, and you don't have to participate there in any way if you don't want.

With the explanation out of the way, these are the complete tier descriptions of the choices you will have very soon:
--------------------
Support Level 1 | $1
  •     Access to the SubscribeStar feed with development news and preview images
  •     Membership in the private Discord community

Support Level 2 | $5
  •     Estate : Dominate updates on release day
  •     Monthly 4K wallpaper
  •     Any other bonus content I publish
  •     Access to the SubscribeStar feed with development news and preview images
  •     Membership in the private Discord community

On Patreon, there is a third choice called 'Extraordinary Support Level 2', that let's you customize your pledge however you like. Here on SubscribeStar, it is replaced by the 'Tip' feature for the time being.
Estate : Dominate is a niche game which will never find the number of supporters of more mainstream fare. That does mean that higher pledges go a long way to make it possible to develop. But no one gains anything if I restrict content, and if I don't, then setting up a bunch of tiers that all give the same benefits is pointless. Might as well make use of the 'Tip' feature and let you decide yourself how much you want to donate.

 --------------------
Whatever you decide, every $ adds up to your 'total pledge'. And at the beginning of each month, I will check these 'total pledges' and give out the following benefits and permanent Discord roles accordingly:

Permanent Support Level 1 | Total lifetime pledges of $20+
Permanent access to all benefits you receive from the SubscribeStar tier 'Support Level 1'
-> Discord membership, development news, preview images
Download of the full version of Estate : Dominate when it is finished

Permanent Support Level 2 | Total lifetime pledges of $100+
Permanent access to all benefits you receive from the SubscribeStar tier 'Support Level 2'
-> Estate : Dominate updates on release day
-> Discord membership, development news, preview images, wallpapers, etc.
Your name in the game credits (if you want)
Download of the full version of Estate : Dominate when it is finished
 --------------------

The roles will give you access to Discord channels where I post the exact same content I publish here, and you will keep the roles at least for the full duration of development on Estate : Dominate.
None of this is to say that I don't appreciate continuing support once you reach the 'Permanent Levels'. But at some point, it's simply unacceptable that you lose access to the Discord community and the current version of the game when you cancel your active pledge. Support should go both ways.

The changes will go live pretty soon. It will be a very simple process, but I'll still post a short 'transition process explainer' with a timetable beforehand.
I'll talk about the Discord changes there. Please consider joining the server if you haven't yet. One important note: Please write me a message on Discord to let me know who you are. Knowing that is the basis for everything I do there.

I hope that covers most of it. Let me know if you have questions.

All the best,
Henissart

What's wrong and how to fix it - Vol.2


Hi everyone,

last post I talked about what's wrong, today's part is about how I want to fix it. Unless the 'why' isn't interesting to you at all, you should read 'Vol.1' if you haven't yet.

To recap: the three main areas I want to improve are 'work-life balance', 'pledge levels and benefits' and the 'subscription-only model'.
Covering everything comprehensively would require a huge wall of text. In the interest of brevity, I'll list what I'm going to do and I'm happy to answer questions in the comments or on Discord.

1. Work-life balance
  • I'm going to pick up a part-time job to stay afloat financially. Approx. 20h/week.
  • Game development will remain my focus and the goal is still to do nothing else in the long-run. I will make my time investment more dependent on the total support though and will adjust accordingly. For now, it will be 40-60h/week. If that changes, I'll tell you immediately.
  • To maximize the time I spend on developing game content, posts on Patreon/SubscribeStar will be be slightly less frequent and on a more variable schedule, i.e. I will post when I have something to say, not because it's Monday. 
  • I will be online on Discord almost every day, but I will drop in and out at will and without explanation.
  • Urgent questions (problems with the game download/bugs etc.) will always be answered asap of course. I do read all messages/emails immediately. 


2. Pledge levels and benefits
There's a huge divide in my mind between the people who support the game, and those who don't. But there's just about none between the supporter pledging $5 and the one pledging $20. Depending on where you live and your personal circumstances, the former can be a larger sacrifice than the latter. Dividing you into 'tiers' more than absolutely necessary feels wrong.
In the future, Estate : Dominate will have almost entirely flat pledge levels and benefits. 

  • Support Level 1 | $1
  • Support Level 2 | $5

'Support Level 1' will provide the same benefits as the current $1 Boy/Girl tier.
'Support Level 2' will provide everything I publish.
If you want to give additional support, you can use the 'Tip' feature on SubscribeStar to increase your pledge however you like.

A full breakdown of everything, including how the transition will work, will follow in the next days.


3. Subscription-only model
To fix how temporary the benefits of supporting me on Patreon/SubscribeStar are, I'm going to introduce permanent benefits myself.
Once your 'lifetime' pledges reach certain amounts, you will retain the benefits from 'Support Level 1' and 'Support Level 2' even without an active pledge. In other words: any further support will be a 100% donation because you will have access to everything I publish anyway.
The full explanation with all details will be in the upcoming post on the new pledge levels. The permanent benefits are very closely connected to those and it will make it simpler to illustrate the concept.

The goal of all this is to make supporting Estate : Dominate as voluntary and worthwhile as possible, without promoting the unfortunately widespread assumption that downloading porn games for free is alright.


All the best,
Henissart

What's wrong and how to fix it - Vol.1


Hi everyone,

I don't know how much background info I should post about this 'pause' and the upcoming changes. My first instinct was to write the initial 'announcement' post, and then detail whatever changes I'm going to make, done. But I've gotten a number of messages with questions, I've been talking about it on Discord, and it's probably always a good idea to explain the motivation behind bigger changes anyway, so... this post now.

It's the first part of a two part series, and only covers what's 'wrong' atm, and why I want to make changes. If you are only interested in the solutions (well, hopefully), you can skip this post.

1. Work hours / Separation between work and free time
I already touched on this before, so I'll keep it short: I never used any form of social media before starting development on the game, and I've never been a regular in an online community. I've sometimes traveled for many months without phone or laptop. Suddenly switching to a very online life came very easy, but I missed the mark on the separation between work and free time.

2. Pledge benefits / Tier levels
Estate : Dominate is my first public project and I had no idea what I was doing when I made the original Patreon page. The tiers and benefits were a mix of copying other pages and guessing. I've already made a few changes here and there, like removing the different release dates for different tiers, but the core is still as it was at the start. And it's a shitty mix of overpromises and things I dislike.
The promised 'polls' have never been an even semi consistent feature for example. The game is so complex with the 3 paths that I can't make a simple poll and run with the result. The few times I tried this it took way too long to do, and never felt like it added much.
The custom images for the top tiers are another issue. I love making them, but I've never found a good balance for either the number I should make, or the time put into them. The people on those tiers are patient to a fault with me and essentially apologizing at this point when they ask me for an image I owe them. It's just a crappy thing I'm doing with this.
And honestly, most of the segmentation into tiers has never felt right. The worst was the mentioned difference in release dates at the start, when some supporters were playing R2 and others still had to wait their turn. But there's so much silly shit, like: you get a wallpaper, but only you over there get the special custom image, but the non existent poll is exclusive for that third person right here... It's just gross.

3. Everything is a temporary 'subscription'
The Patreon/SubscribeStar model is genuinely great: a somewhat reliable monthly income instead of the 'cross your fingers for the one release after years of work' model is a game changer. But it sucks like nothing else that supporters get immediately kicked to the curb when they aren't actively subscribed anymore. And it's not like being a Patron/Subscriber is cheap compared to the normal standards in gaming.


The combination of all this is that I'm working stupid hours for little total compensation, while at the same time feeling guilty, because the individual support from Patrons and Subscribers is too high, which I'm actively promoting with promises I can't keep. 

This needs to change, but I'll talk about this in the next part.

All the best,
Henissart

Important development news


Hi everyone,

this is going to be a longer post. Here's a TLDR if you only want the most important info:

  • I will pause billing for next month, i.e. you will not be charged for June
  • I will keep working on the game without interruption
  • I will post development updates, previews and so on throughout June, albeit on a less regular schedule
  • I will release the next game update shortly after the Patreon 'pause'

Important SubscribeStar difference:
I can not pause billing here like I can on Patreon. The easiest solution that is pretty similar would be to edit your pledge down to the lowest tier.
All important information in June will be accessible at that tier, and I won't change your role/access on Discord. If you cancel your pledge, you'll lose access here, but if you write me on Discord I'll send you your usual tier rewards there for June. I hope that's a decent solution.



The overarching reason for this one month semi-break is that making the game like I have isn't sustainable long term. Since about December, it's been pretty apparent that I'm grinding myself down. Financially, but even more so in work-life balance.

I think I could keep going in the current fashion for another year or so, perhaps long enough to bring Estate to the finish line, but I also think I would never develop another game after this. And that would suck, because I do enjoy making games a lot and I have tons of ideas for future projects.

So, the question for me is: how can I make games (at least semiprofessionally) without driving myself nuts in the process? 
The obvious answer is to not neglect everything outside game development. Sounds simple, but is very difficult when you have a minor case of perfectionism, and you combine that with a strong feeling of indebtedness to the people supporting your work. It's essentially a permanent feeling of guilt whenever I'm not working, which ends up ruining whatever I try to do for fun.

Most likely I'll need to set clear boundaries between work and free time, and then force myself to stick to them. Perhaps I also need to adjust the time I spend on the various components of my work. I guess I could test most of this out without pausing the page, but since my work-life imbalance hinges on my inability to judge how much of my day I 'owe' supporters, taking out one side of the equation for a month will hopefully help. 

Game development will go on. As will updates on what I'm doing, previews, my Discord presence, just about anything. No promises for the frequency of posts though. At some point during June, I'll write a post enumerating whatever changes I intend to make.

I can't release while the page is paused, so R6 will come out shortly after. I hope that's ok with you.

All the best,
Henissart

Pet Play by Kitty
A Prize for Kitty


Hi everyone,

I know it's Friday, but this image is not a preview for the next release. 
It's Sphynx's (Kitty's) prize render for winning the first ever Estate : Dominate fan fiction contest.

It's an illustration of exactly this moment in Kitty's 'Pet Play' story:
"As she pulled up on the leash, guiding him up her leg, he slid his tongue over her knee and up her thigh until the leash finally loosened when his wet tongue met Bella’s dripping wet pussy."

I hope I captured the image you had in mind when you wrote that, Kitty!

Congratulation again, and also thanks again to everyone who wrote and voted in the contest.

All the best and a great weekend,
Henissart
