Spankers, Spankees and Switches,
Plugging away at the first part of Episode 7. Been working on the new content, and I’ve implemented a few features that I think will make the game much more enjoyable. The new features you can look forward to when the new episode is released.
1. Several players like to play cross-dressing males. However, currently if you select male, the game will occasionally force you to wear (American) culturally male clothing (in particular, your costume and your work uniform). Naturally, this is unsatisfying for these players. Therefore, I’ve added a new option that allows players to specify what gender of clothing they want to wear independently of their actual gender. So you’ll be able to be a male character, whom the game puts in female clothing, or a female whom the game puts in male clothing. Yes, this does mean that if you’re a girl, and you select male clothing that your costume will be a thong and some boots and nothing else. No, nobody will comment on your tits hanging out. Sorry.
2. I’ve added a new template that allows me to write different text depending on which choice (first, second or third) you selected in the previous event. This will allow me to make the game much more reactive to the many roleplaying (aka pointless) choices I throw at you. Most exciting, it will allow you to have much more control over how your character reacts to a spanking. Do you take your spankings stoically? Turn into a giant crybaby as soon as you’re upended? Something in between? Do you start stoic, but quickly start blubbering? It’ll be up to you!
I’ve also added a new panel above: Spanking Adventure Gamebooks
This includes links to both the Master of the Manor and Dianne’s Promotion books written several years ago by Robin Pierce. They’ve disappeared off the internet. This filled me with incredible sadness, because they were incredible spanking games that inspired me to start creating my own games. So I decided to make them available on my website. Both books are very well written, and quite challenging. I don’t like the cane, and Pierce loves the cane, most of the spankers are much nastier than I prefer, and I don’t like how you have to choose between winning and being a total brat. However, they’re still incredibly sexy, and engaging and I’d highly recommend everyone who enjoys my game to go and try them out.
New version up with some fixes to bugs pointed out by Wildfire over at animeotk:
1. Some event names were malformed, leading to loading errors if you saved and then reloaded in the middle of the episode. I’ve fixed those event names, and also added a bit of logic to repair bad saves at load time, so you should be able to just load your game and keep playing. If that doesn’t work, starting from the beginning/the start of episode 6/the end of episode 6 day 1 should all work.
2. Fixed a couple of typos.
3. Fixed a bug where Scarlet Moon wasn’t properly gaining Power when choosing the Power option during the episode’s climax.
Scarlet Moon Episode 6 is Complete!
You can now go ahead and get it in the downloads section. It has a fair bit of Natalie-romance-only content, and two stat checks, though other than that it is alas fairly streamlined alas. Still, I hope people enjoy it.
Just finished fixing the *many*, *many* typos and other mistakes (mostly pronoun related) errors that VikingSpanko so diligently recorded and sent to me. Many thanks VikingSpanko!
Working on debugging the new content right now. Hopefully that will be ready for release soonish.
Not a whole lot to add. Chipping away at the second day of content. The second day has a fair number of paths, so it’s taking a bit, but we’re getting there.
Haven’t worked much on the next episode the past month (been pretty busy with IRL, plus taking a break after the latest release). However, I have done some work, so progress is being made. No timeline on when new content will be available.
Bugfix uploaded that fixes a crash when attempting to look at the new character’s powers, and a crash during Midnight’s date caused by a few screwups on my end with respect to clothing (it was possible if you were male to end up without any underwear, something the game doesn’t really like).
The first day of episode 6 has been released! Enjoy.
As always, the holidays have proven to be a slow time for me, game development wise. Still, I’ve been working on the next episode here and there when I get a chance and I’m almost done with the story content for the first half of the next episode. After that, I’ll have some AI to write, and some new powers to implement, and then I can start playtesting.
No idea when things will be ready though. I’ve also been doing some bug fixes, and UI tweaks based on feedback. That will get released along with the new content.
Sorry about the delayed update. October wasn’t very productive due to IRL stuff (both personal, and a certain event that I’m sure you’re all aware of) inhibiting my groove.
However, my productivity is starting to pick up some. Just finished tweaking the market scene in episode 2 so that you can help Vanessa without getting spanked (just pass the stat check), and adding a new dominant path in Episode 2 when Scarlet Moon is snooping around in Megawater before the climax of the episode.
