v.09.1 Progress
Hello!
Just an update on how everything is going so far for the v.09.1 update.
Completed So Far!
Social Media - Complete!
Social Media in the game has been completely redesigned and now several girls have interactive profiles including galleries of all their current posts along with many newly created images for this update.
Ellie, Samantha, Emma, Chloe, Tanya, Jenna and Fleur all have complete profiles and all have new images!
Banking App - Complete!
One of the smallest additions that is more of a gimmick than anything substantial, but a new trackable money system is now in the game, although there isn't going to be a money grind ever in Defending Lydia Collier, this was a good thing to get up and running for the future and experience.
Messaging - Complete!
A new SMS function has been added to the game that will enable you to increase relationship scores and communicate with characters even if you're not able to be with them at the moment. It also lays the groundwork for communicating with some not-yet met characters in future updates.
Phone Photo Gallery - Complete!
The Phone's Gallery is now complete, any character's that sends an image to your phone will have a folder appear and then a gallery launched when you click it so you can view them.
Bugs and Grammar Fixes - Complete!
All of the issues that have been raised with the last update are now resolved.
The Almost Dones...
Apartment Laptop, and revamped and menuless websites and tablets:
The foundations for the websites are now all completed and currently, I'm just working on fleshing this out and creating the new content to add some depth to the game. 
If the character's backstories interest you then you'll find points after certain conversations and events where you can go and read up on them if you wish. 
You'll also find the daily news articles and the ability to check previous days added, along with galleries for all the CCTV evidence you may gather, statements and other information to do with Lydia's case, and the office computer will now be interactive, along with a laptop at the MC's home that will become available should you be there with nothing else going on.
The WIPs:
Small amount of new renders & Improved Interview Scene:
As I've been going back from the beginning to code the entire phone in, there are several new ideas and improvements also coming throughout the earlier days.
Primarily for the game's main story I'm bringing in a new character earlier than planned. As the story develops you'll have the choices of who you want to be helping you with the mystery. Would it be best to trust in Vanessa and the local Police? Connie and your old friends in the City? Bilbo, Jim and the Veterans? Or go it alone?
Taking inspiration from the ending of Mass Effect 2, where decisions such as your fireteam captain and how much they trust you could result in a success or a tragedy; who you have with you, how much they trust you and how far they're willing to follow you will have massive effects on how the story ends, and I'm introducing some points where you can begin making those connections in earlier days with some new characters and new scenes.
I'm also adding new renders for some of the earlier scenes and adding more choices, perhaps instead of spending the night alone watching TV, you wanted to go and see if Yennifer was still at her bookshop in the evening because you went to check the CCTV during the day? Now you'll be able to. 
So that is where I'm at so far.
v.09.1 is going to end up being a big update both content-wise and technically, with loads of new content for the previous days and a base to just add in messages, news, pictures seamlessly in the future.
Whilst I get replaying a game you'd already played the current content in, isn't for everybody, I'm going to be adding in everything now so in the future you won't need to go back, and I won't be saying "Oh I wish I'd added this in back then!".
With all the foundations laid, right now is just waiting for the new renders to finish and finding my calling as a journalist creating all these articles.
Thanks for all the continued support, and if there is anything you feel would be a good change or addition whilst I'm working on these parts, let me know! :)

Hi Guys, 
Just an update about v.09.1, this is actually going to be quite a big update in terms of what is added, although it isn't going to progress the story.
Here are some of the things coming so you know what I'm working on and that will be coming and will be retrospectively added to the beginning. As I've been making this update I've decided to add a lot of new stuff, way more than planned 2 weeks ago, so it is taking longer.
The reason I'm doing this is I don't want to release an update and say "Look at these new features", and then two weeks later release another update and say "Look at these new features now" and everybody go "Huh? I just started a new game for the last update, now I've got to do ANOTHER playthrough from the beginning?" and then two weeks later do it again. I feel that would be far more frustrating than just waiting for it in one go.
Coming in v.09.1:
Social Media 
Messaging 
Banking App and Money (although this is a tracker mainly for myself to get used to using for future content/games and to gain some experience, no money grind or anything like that will be added to this game.)
Phone Photo Gallery (for any images you may be sent.
Replacing menus in the earlier days (no more "Click to see fullscreen or skip" in scenes such as the interview.)
Revamped News Websites (again, no more "Click to see this", they'll be interactive.)
Improved Interview Scene (will now be options not to let the Detectives lay into Lydia so hard and to intervene.)
Apartment Laptop (will be able in some situations to use the apartment laptop to re-read news articles, view CCTV and evidence, and to look up characters and their backstories.
Bug and Grammar Fixes 
Small amount of new renders (these will primarily be small fixes on earlier days, along with lots of new images into the social media app)
So overall v.09.1 is going to be a very technical and world-building update. I know for some people me taking the time to work on this is going to be disappointing as you may just want more fap material, but I like my games to have stories and I feel some of these scenes if you choose to go through them will add a lot of character depth.
Thanks for all the continued support, and whilst I don't really do "technical updates" and the game has played the exact same from The Manifest v.01 to Defending Lydia Collier v.09, I think this is going to make everything a lot more interactive and will be a big improvement!

Hello!
v.09.1 will be out shortly, hopefully in a few days time.
This is going to be adding the phone to the game and will replace all the existing social media interactions so far.
Originally I was just going to add the social media aspect of the phone, and then go back and unlock things such as saved photos, messages, emails etc, however after having a think about it this means you'd have to replay the entire game just to have the ability to send a message on Day 3 you might have missed otherwise, and I think that would be annoying.
So I'm going to release it with all the features unlocked, which is why it is taking me so long.
This will also contain fixes to the bugs I've been made aware of and add a couple more renders to Steph's slave path to bring it to the same ending as the others.
Thanks for all the patience and continued support!

Hello,
Unfortunately, I'm going to have to delay v.09 for a couple of days.
I got my power restored this morning and sent the uploaded copies to my testers, and it has a ton of problems with bugs.
The bugs are coming from the new social media system I made, as anybody that tested it in the demo knows I had it up and working when it was its own separate entity, however over the weekend when I merged it in with the main game I've had all kinds of problems from Ren'Py errors to random bits of the phone UI showing up just completely randomly in other scenes.
I think some of these errors are from me rushing trying to code everything in over the last two days, especially with the power cuts messing my Sunday up so I'm hopeful I can fix this very quickly.
In the event that it isn't fixed in the next couple of days and before the 28th so everybody gets the chance to download before the end of January, I will pause my billing so you aren't all charged for February without getting the update in January as I promised.
Hopefully, have this sorted ASAP.

Defending Lydia Collier v.09 Release Date!
Hello,
Thank you for bearing with me, this update is very large and has taken a ton of work with some of the new features I'm adding.
This update will be released on the 24th of January!
As this month I've been doing my January Exams, I've been (and will be continuing to) rendering constantly in the background and by this date the exams will have finished so I'll have the  23rd/24th weekend to put all of those new renders into the game and then bug test it before uploading.
This will mean I can make a few extra renders, but as you can hopefully appreciate from my position it is far better to do it at that weekend once the exams are finished, than try and code in and bug test everything on the Monday or the Tuesday when I have exams the next day.
Defending Lydia Collier v.09 Information:
When is it being released?
January the 24th to anybody at the 'Early Access' tier or above!
It is the largest update yet! 
Hundreds more images than previous updates making this the longest day so far.
Including a brand new social media system! 
The pre-rendered 'Instagram' images are gone and a newly created in-game social media app has replaced them from Day 1 onwards, with new images on many of the girl's profiles!
Newer and more interactive websites! 
Using the skills I've picked up from creating the Social Media site, a more interactive approach will be taken to the websites where they feel more like the real thing than just a serious of pre-rendered images.
Improved adult scenes!
I've purchased some newer female adult assets than the same old ones I've been using since the launch of The Manifest in 2018, meaning the girls look a bit less plastic.
Thank you for all the continued support and patience!

New Social Media Complete!
Hello everybody,
I hope you all had a great Christmas!
Some good news regarding the social media update I've been trying to implement, I'm fairly certain it is now complete and therefore I'll be embedding it into the next update.
Whilst I am fairly confident this should not force a restart if you have any saves where the MC is using the phone currently please either roll back prior to him using it (before the phone appears on the screen) or continue until he puts it down and it disappears from the screen. These scenes will be replaced by the new social media retrospectively from the beginning of the game, so it will cause issues if you try to open it whilst the old social media is in use.
If you'd like to test or try the new system, you can download it here. (PC Only)
This is a small tech demo and does contain currently unreleased images from v.09, although I do not think they should provide any spoilers.
If you have any feedback from this newest build, let me know as changes can still be made.
Regarding v.09, I've got two adult scenes left for v.09 and it will be released.
Thanks for all the continued support,

Defending Lydia Collier - Update Progress

Hello, hope you're all well!

Firstly a huge thank you to everybody who gave me feedback regarding the phone changes.

Initially I wasn't going to include it in this update and have a separate overhaul update, but I've been working on this so much I really hope I'll be able to fit it in.

Those of you have followed my games know about me and coding, I have absolutely no experience in it so everything so far has been extremely basic just a flow of text diverging on a flag here and there, but nothing beyond that.

With the new knowledge I've gained through learning screens and imagebuttons and all kinds of things for this I've got some big plans on making the game look better in lot of different ways. Anybody that really isn't bothered about this, the good news is that I don't lose any render time for it, as I'm coding and photoshopping back on my laptop. This also won't delay the update, if the renders are done first v.09 will be out without it.

Now onto the main substance of this update, I'm now on the 4th of 6 adult scenes to be included with this update. I realised some players may be on a more vanilla path with Steph so she's got an additional originally overlooked scene coming.

I've got more than 500 renders completed for this update completed at this moment in time. Previously, version 0.8 was the biggest so far with 430, and in this update I've already surpassed this and I've still got roughly 200 more to go. Version 0.9 is going to be approximately 700 renders, making it basically the size of two updates which is the reason for why it is taking longer, it is going to be the size of two updates.

Regarding the time of year, I will be unreachable for a few days and I'll answer any messages upon my return.

December's Poll will be 'New Years Eve Party' themed, and the poll will go up shortly after this post for $10+ supporters.

Thank you for all your continued support, stay safe, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Only featuring on Ellie's path, will she ruin the relationship with your employee, or make it even better?

Good Evening!

Hope you're all well and staying safe!

Defending Lydia Collier's latest update is still rolling along as planned.

I've now finished all of the story elements of this update, and am just completing the second of five adult scenes that will be added.

I've got about 200 renders approximately left at the moment, and am planning to have the update released probably the week before Christmas.

As previously mentioned this update will be the longest one yet render wise which is why it has taken a little bit longer than usual along.

Some of the funds I've received have also been used to purchase some upgraded anatomical parts, so they should look a bit more realistically and less plasticy than has been previously mentioned.

I'll post another update on the progress in a week or so.

Thanks again for your continued support!

White Phantom Games - November Progress Report

Hello!

I hope you all enjoyed the update of The Manifest: Shadows over Manston.

Since then I've been working on Defending Lydia Collier v.09, and I've currently completed and edited about 250 renders so far, and am about 50% through the dialogue.

This update is going to be released sometime in December before Christmas.

The Manifest's update took a week and a bit longer than planned and Defending Lydia Collier's v.09 is going to be the biggest update yet, so that is the reason for the slightly longer than usual update date. Whilst I could release a 300-odd render update this week, some people would appreciate that, but for some people, they'd have basically no content. So I'm going to complete the day as planned and then release it.

This update's day is going to be considerably longer than all the previous ones have been. The story is picking up massively with this update, and there isn't really going to be much of an opportunity for the MC to sit around and do nothing anymore, this means scenes for the morning, middays and evenings whereas in previous updates this wasn't the case.

Nearly every character is getting an adult scene this update, so nearly all relationship paths are going to continue.

There will be at least one (but for some, more than one) adult scene for:

Ellie, Steph, Vanessa and Jenna.

Overall this means the update is probably going to be 600-700 renders long upon completion, which is about 20-30% more content than the previous largest update, which is why it will take slightly longer as it takes longer for my computer to render the extra scenes and for me to write the extra dialogue.

Going forward, each update is likely to be this size, however as many of the locations I'm creating this update will be already made I'm hoping to regain rendering time on the future updates as the story will revisit these same locations.

Additionally, with some of the funds that I've received from your donations (which I thank you massively for) I've purchased some background audio, and I'll be looking at adding this to the game in a future update once I work out how to do it. My aim is to make things like door knocking and story appropriate sounds can also be implemented at their necessary moments in the future to make the game a bit more immersive. This is something I'm practicing and learning to do, and as it does not take any time away from rendering this will be a random update at some point in the future to solely implement this when I've got it working, and it will just effectively 'bolt-on' to whatever update is out at the moment.

I'm also looking at a GUI upgrade on both games to get away from the default Ren'Py skin in the future, but this is low priority and so far something I'm not particularly good at, and again will be just a small update that adds on to whatever version I am currently at.

The Manifest: Shadows over Manston will also be getting two small updates soon. The first of these will be solely to add the small images of the person speaking that Defending Lydia Collier has, I've got these working now so I just need to render the faces and add it in, this is likely to be December time.

The second update will be a 'text rehaul'. I'm going to go back through the text and fix a lot of the errors, lack of punctuation and prune out and replace irrelevant dialogue that related to storylines I removed with the 'Retold' updates.

All of these smaller updates do not take away from rendering time, so will just come out once I've finished them.

Thanks again for all the continued support, I'm now solely working on this alongside my degree so will be able to keep up the lockdown level of hours I'm putting into it with furlough coming to an end!

Hello!
I hope you are all well and have a Happy Halloween this weekend!
I'm very close to completing the latest update of The Manifest: Shadows Over Manston and it is going to end up likely in the 400 render mark, making it one of, if not the, biggest update I've done image-wise for the game. Whilst it has taken slightly longer than planned, I think it is worth it to complete the extra images and not just cut the day short and release it now.
I've still got two scenes to complete, and these will likely each take me a few days so I will set a release date for this update to be Saturday the 7th November at the latest. Should it be completed and finished beforehand it will release as soon as it is done.
Thank you for all the continued support! I'm nearly at the point now with supporter's I can ditch my part-time work and instead work on this alongside my studies which is incredible and entirely down to everybody supporting me, so thank you!
Look forward to uploading the update and hope you will all enjoy it, as always if you have any feedback please let me know.

Hello!
Just an update on how it is going.
Currently, I've completed 275 Renders for this update, previously I said I was expecting the update to be 200-300 renders long so it looks like it will end up bigger than planned as I still have about 100 or so to go.
This month's $10+ exclusive renders will be Halloween themed, and as I've noticed some characters are getting a vote or two consistently but not winning, I'll make a shot of every character who has received a vote on the previous three polls. 
Thanks again to everybody that is supporting to me and I'll post again in a few days to give you a release date!

Hello!
This month's update will be one for The Manifest: Shadows over Manston.
This update will focus primarily on the 'Submissive Fiancee' & 'Penelope' paths along with advancing the story, and will likely end up between 200-300 renders long.
As previously mentioned; this update and future updates will be labelled v.2, v.21, v.22 etc. so that you can differentiate between the old v.18 versions before the "Retold" reworks which are incompatible. The "Retold" name will discontinue going forwards as well as each update will be new content. 
So far, I have completed 115 renders and am planning to release the update near the end of the month.
Thank you for all your continued support!

Hello!

As part of the ongoing changes to the website (will be revealed soon) whilst this month's renders are ongoing, I've decided to make an Instagram for the games!
All the posts will follow their ToS, but occasionally as if there are any renders that don't make the games, along with some of the girl's in-game posts, they made end up there.
