Development update - dating and progress balancing

I've completed most of relationships / dating functionality; now I'll need to add many texts and dialogues to fill the missing pieces for all the characters.

Once this is done and tested, and a few outstanding bugs are fixed, I'll release it as version 1.0.0.

The relationships screen will now show requirements for stages:


Dating will be a prompt-guess mini-game.



I also updated the the experience curve.
It was not a curve actually (the purple one), and when the player reached level 100, there was still a lot of incomplete rooms.
If was updated (the blue one) so that getting level 100 happened around completing all the rooms.

Improving in-game relationships development + diary

One of the biggest gaps in the game for me is a poor relationships model, so I decided to try improving the interactions with other characters so that they also included explicit preferences and multiple datings in order to be able to invite character and unlock actions with them.

Dating would be sort of mini-games, but in case I won't have time to implement it, it may be a simple click-to-complete-the-date event.

Here is an early preview of relationships screen (some icons will be clickable, with other having a tooltip showing missed requrements).




I also want to add a diary which would reflect the progress.

0.8.1

Recently I have made some small changes (fixed some bugs reported in this thread and added few more reaction dialogs) and updated the online version to 0.8.1.
At this point I see the game as more or less complete (the way I imagined it at the beginning), so if I won't get to working on the next major feature anytime soon, I think I'll consider the game as complete.

Taking a break

I'll be busy for the next few weeks, so there will be no major updates anytime soon.

0.8.0 and the gameplay updates

The main focus of 0.8.0 was on reworking session gameplay, making is visually simpler and a little more challenging at the same time. 



Changes:

  • Gameplay rework:
    • All previous body-related expectations were moved to the room-level requirements and interests, and are now displyed in the tooltip. Some of those are required to enter the room, while others would only provide a bonus score if matched.
    • Opening an ending now does not complete the game, and allows exploring alternative endings without restarting the game.
    • Clothes-related expectations are now sorted and displayed in particular columns depending on the target body part.
    • Any expectations that were partially matched, or not matched, and stay for the next round, are marked with an '!' mark and now can only be matched exactly (partial match will not work); this change was done to reduce the value of partial matches (e.g. bra) so that changing clothes was done more frequently.
    • Makeup and wigs now cannot be changed during the session (let's say, not to break the performance image); there is little value in these now that most of the body-related expectations are available before entering the room.
    • More details are now available at the end of each session.
  • Balancing:
    • Hitting the dislikes limit in the last round will now not fail the session.
  • Other updates:
    • Clothes that cannot be used are now not shown during the sessions - to save space and reduce noise.
    • Actions that cannot be performed because the partner is missing are now not shown on the small screens - to save space.
    • Last rooms of each line now cannot become low-level.
    • The viewers' info was moved from the top to the left - to save space (the viewers' block takes less space and looks better on small screens).
  • Bug fixes:
    • Using the 'no-scars' voucher did not reset scar recovery and caused scars-related expectations not to work properly - this was fixed.
  • Side effects:
    • The level may change a little (one up or one down) after re-balancing the leveling.

Development update - room / sessions interests updates

A quick update on room and session changes I am working on:


1. Most of the body-related interests will become requirements of the room.

I realized that it is not possible to change the body features (except hair length and make-up) during the sessions, so there is little sense in showing these interests during the sessions; moving them to the room requirements will allow prepare better for the session, and also make session UI less cluttered (more on the empty cell in #2):




Primary interests will be mandatory (it will not be possible to enter the room if any of the primary interests are not matched at least partially).

Secondary interests are nice to have, and matching those will increase the overall experience and currently gained after the session.

The overall match % for all these interests will affect the total score at the end of the session.



2. The session will now have an optional single body-related interest instead of 4; it will not affect the reaction, but only allow to get an extra bonus score. These will be minor kinks like moles, scars, maybe hair color, etc. The idea here is that these kinks will not be known beforehand, and the player may adjust the looks in between the sessions to get a bonus score next time.


3. The clothes-related interests during the session will be updated so that if any interest was not matched during the round, and it stayed for the next round, it will need to be matched exactly (to be green), and a partial match will not work.

E.g. if the bra was a partial match for the female clothes, and the female clothes interest stays for the next round, then the bra will not match anymore (will result in the red match) and something else will need to be put on.

This is done to make the partial match clothes (bras, pants, stockings) less effective (i.e. red) next round so that the player has to change the clothes once in a while.

0.7.0 and new facial featues

  • New Features:
    • New facial features were added (moles, freckles, and face scars). The corresponding items are available in 'Cosplay Stock' and are unlocked on levels 7, 12, and 20 respectively.


  • Other updates:
    • Grimacing activities are now unlocked in the opposite order (eyebrows first, then mouth expressions) to account that mask is used in low-level rooms.
    • Minor dialogue updates were made to account for new facial feaure items.
  • Bug fixes:
    • Areola re-positioning items were usable for massive natural - this was fixed.
