Back In The Saddle

And so, we survived another release. Last week I worked on the hotfix, a little on the walkthrough and H-scenes list, and I did some preliminary work for gameplay content. Right now, I am writing a quest (I was thinking about making it available for both guilds, but I am not sure yet), involving a little expedition down an inactive volcano, and I am planning some extra content for Golden Leaf (having Erica behave as some sort of judge for minor issues in the county, with people presenting their case to her, and you taking the decisions on how to handle the various problems).

We'll see if I can do both, or if I'll have to pick only one and complete the other next month. I'll be writing the new harem path scenes either this week or the next, but other than that and working a bit more on chapter 6, there isn't much else for the short term, since I figure the gameplay stuff will keep me busy enough.
 
By the way, I am planning on taking a week off either next month or in August. I'll let you guys know when I know for sure. As always, I don't think this should cause me to skip a month, so it will be business as usual with a slight delay for the release.
 
That's all for today. Let me know if there are any problems with the game, otherwise I'll see you guys next week for the next dev blog. Whatever you do, have fun! ^_^

June Update

Once again, the masonry, the FBI and CIA all conspire to hide from you the apex of human civilization: SMUT! But fear not, for I will go to any length to bring you the only true entertainment for the age of enlightenment! You need not the nagging of your fellow humans and troublesome "social interactions", you need 2D waifus* and husbandos to fill that void.


(download here or at itch.io​  the free version of the ultimate waifu companionship simulator, while you can inform yourself on what really matters** by reading the changelog here​. I hope you have fun, and let me know if you find any issues. ^_^

*3D waifus can be purchased for $199.99

**Strangely enough, it's NOT the waifu stock market

A Brief Recap

 This week I worked on a new group scene (a lesbian one this time, available in the VIP area of the QoH), and then I worked a bit on the H-scenes list, and on some stuff for chapter 6 (maps and some cutscenses). I also did some work on the Patreon short story update for this month and I am halfway through a new scene with the spider lady, but I am unsure about a few details, so we'll see if I'll have to rewrite/tweak it or not.

Not much else to report, at the moment. The polls and art preview will be up for patrons tomorrow (make sure to yell at me if I forget), the next update should come early on next week (monday-tuesday, hopefully), and I'll be working more on chapter 6, finishing the scene I mentioned above, and then considering what else I can write to add to the game in the remaining time.

Monster Hunter

 So this week I worked on more bugfixes (a player on itch.io has been very helpful, letting me know of several bugs and other minor issues). I also wrote another scene for Catalina, one of the new Naris, I wrote a gangbang scene if you get drunk on Solina beach (so there is finally at least one random scene for doing so) and I wrote a scene with a new monster, a mind flayer. I still need to figure out where I want this last encounter to happen, though.

I did some minor work on mapping, to get ready to add the royal library into the game, since that should be in by now. Once I add "higher tier" libraries, I'll probably have to re-distribute some of the library research you can do, as well as add new topics. Well, that's not an immediate concern, anyway.

Coming this week are more scenes with monsters. I was thinking about the spider lady we can see once in the temple in the slums, but I am unsure if I want a quest around it or not, so we'll see. I also need to update the h-scenes list and see if I can write more group scenes.

These are all the plans for the short term. Either this week or the next patrons will also get the usual art preview and polls, so look forward to those if you are a supporter. Stay tuned for more news on Caliross, and I'll see you guys next time! ^_^

Fix It, Then Fix It Again

 So, with the release being on tuesday, the two hotfix releases, and some personal business of mine getting in the way, I didn't have much time for new content. I am almost done writing a new scene for Catalina, one of the new Naris, but that's about it. She is going to tempt you into a little one one one action, after the threesome wit her and Esmeralda, and she'll be very explicit about what she wants. :)

Coming up next are monster scenes! I'd like to see if I can put together the orc village for this release, which would make for some nice content, I think. Otherwise, I could introduce some new creatures into the ecosystem, so to speak. I also want to add a few more group scenes. Someone asked me if there were any other than the scene at the baths, and actually there aren't that many, so it got me thinking about them a bit more. Then there is also trying to push some more work for chapter 6, so I can slowly work toward the end of the game.

I am thinking about some shorter quests (I still need the final quest for the adventurers guild, and I need at least 1-2 more "regular" quests for each guild, as well as some independent quests and more), but I feel like I should give more attention to the main quest, which is why I have been mixing sexy scenes and work on chapter 6 lately.

Anyway, that's all for the moment. As usual, plans might get shuffled around to get the most out of my time working on the game, but this is a rough general outlook for the coming weeks of work. As always, let me know if you guys have suggestions or thoughts about the game. Stay tuned to see how development progresses! ^_^

May Update

 May(be) it's time to inflict upon the unsuspecting populace another Caliross update! Destroy your social life and sink into P.O.R.N. addiction (Profound, Original, Riveting Narratives)... Okay, maybe the story isn't that good, but I had to use this acronym somewhere.

Version 0.985 adds a super secret succubus brothel, revisits Ginnuk's ending for more orc love, and adds some random scenes here and there, with vampires (only the ones with a PHD), werewolves and even regular humans (the horror)!

Incur in the wrath of your ancestors* and play the devious free version (download here or at itch.io). Check the changelog here and embrace your hatred for unordered lists and unhelpful documents**.

* Ancestors not included with the base game.

** I elevated writing these into an art form.

Quick Recap

 

So, from where we left off I added one more scene for Eliza, one for Dominique, and then I worked a bit more on preparing chapter 6 (more mapping and the like), as well as fixing a few bugs and typos and handling testers' feedback. I should update the game tomorrow or the day after at the latest, so you'll get to try it out for yourselves soon.

Not much else to say, really, all that is left is tying up a few loose ends. I have had a weird week, probably because I have been dieting for a while, but I don't think the overall progress was too affected, even if I felt dead tired at times. I have increased my portions a bit, and everything seems fine already, so nothing to worry about.

Anyway, look forward to the new release! ^_^
