Mid June Status
When will the update be released?
The plan is by the end of the month. I'm not happy about how long this update has taken. In hindsight, I wish it had been broken up into 2 parts.
There remains a healthy list of bugs and a few pieces of unfinished artwork. A beta build is currently being tested for content/continuity/dialogue/and of course bugs.
Commentary on v0.3.0 (This upcoming update)
Having playtested this update many, many times, I'm struck by a few things:
- This update is IMO "hotter" than v0.2, but less clever/humorous. I think the two big quests from Brooke's update (the insult quest and the computer quest) are some of the best content in the entire game, IMO. This update is more focused on showing the progression of a conflicted mother and son reckoning with and (ultimately submitting to) their growing lust for one another.
- Having extended the early part of Meredith's route, it now takes longer to get to the "fun stuff." I have a concern that newer players might give up too quickly and that the early part needs more "fan service" to keep them interested. I will address that in future updates.
Looking Ahead Short Term (to 0.3.1)
Since I'm looking to do more frequent, incremental updates going forward, the update after this one will be a minor one and should take a month (or two at most). The emphasis will be putting storytelling tools in place that I know I'm going to need and have ready to go for new story.
- Improved Sprite Rigs - Currently, MC (understandably) has the most complete sprite rig in the game. Meredith is currently the only other character that walks in all four directions, but the appearance of her rig needs a lot of improvement, particularly from the side view.
- Additional Sprite Rigs - Sprite animations for Brooke, Aunt Charlotte, Nicole, and Aunt Irene.
- Dialogue Emotes - Currently, only Lucy and Andrea emote. The following characters will get a set of basic dialogue emotes: Meredith, Brooke, Aunt Charlotte, Aunt Irene.
- Improved POV Blowjob Scene: The Meredith POV Blowjob scene will be improved to fix her "floating Zardoz helmet head" problem. This scene was originally created in Moho Studio, and when translated to Unity's bone animation system, didn't support anything like gravity bones to make her hair fall more naturally. Additionally, I have the wonderful foley (SFX)(commissioned from the wonderful @JayeWildeReads) to augment this scene with some good old-fashioned, authentic motherly ASMR.
- Improved Handjob Scene: The Meredith Handjob scene will be improved so that it's responsive to the "Mother of All Bombs" Perk. She will be redrawn to fix her short legs and her face.
