Version 0.1.68.5 release

Version 0.1.68.5 is here!

I really wasn't sure if I should release this or not, as there isn't any new content to see (apart from the minor combat rebalance). I did a huge task on the engine this week, and it just ate all of my time...

Another big problem I'm having is that with the latest updates over the last few versions, a lot of content (especially sex scenes) has been 'left behind' in obsolete formats. Now that all of the core sex mechanics are done, I can work through and bring them up to the proper standard, but it results in there not being much new content for you to see.

That's also the main reason why I haven't been adding any new TF items, as I'm just going to have to go back and refactor all of their content when I do the TF overhaul...

I should be able to get all the sex scene content up to the new standard by version 0.1.69. I'm going to make sure that there's some new content to see then as well (I already have loads of content planned out, but I need to make sure all the current content is of an acceptable quality before writing it in!)

Anyway, here's v0.1.68.5 (the next version will be better, I promise!)


Here are the download links for version 0.1.68.5:

Pre-zipped easy download link (use this one!): Mega

(Removed Google Drive link due to lack of storage space. If you'd like a copy of this version, and the Mega link isn't working, please contact me! :3)

Lilith's Throne requires the latest version of Java to be installed on your computer.

Be aware: This version is still a very early release. There are game-breaking bugs, dead-end content, and it has not been fully tested as an executable jar. Please take that into consideration while playing!


Patch Notes:


  • Engine:
    • Did a complete refactor of one of the core engine components. (There's no noticeable change here, but it took me two whole days so I had to mention it...)
      Changed save/load windows to internal ones.
  • Gameplay:
    • Altered attribute bonuses (hover over each attribute to see what bonus you've got). This is still a work in progress.
  • Sex:
    • Improved: Started random attacker sex scene rewrites (~50% done) to bring them up to the same sort of standard as Brax's. You can now switch between oral/sex positions in a single sex scene.
      Altered: All sex actions are now available (corruption no longer fully locks them). However, if you choose to do an action that isn't within your corruption range, you will gain an amount of corruption based on the corruption requirement.
  • UI:
    • Changed response buttons to display an icon depending if the action is 'unlocked', 'locked', or 'corruptive'. No icon is displayed if the action has no requirements.
      Response/button tooltips now show detailed requirements for the response (if that response has requirements).
      Polished all tooltip dimensions and content.
      Fixed tooltips disappearing near the edges of the screen (tooltip positioning still needs further refinement though).
  • Combat:
    • Improved: First iteration of combat balance.
      Ranged weapons have been renamed to offhand weapons. (Although some descriptions may still refer to ranged attacks, as I didn't have time to change them all.)
      'Melee' and 'Ranged' attacks have been replaced with 'Main', 'Offhand', and 'Dual' attacks.
      Hit and dodge chances have been removed. 'Main' and 'Offhand' attacks now always hit, while 'Dual' attacks have a 50% chance to miss (but apply damage from both your main and offhand if you hit).
      Seduction, spell, and special attack damages have been brought more in line with normal attack damage.
      The 'Continue' stage of combat has been cut out. Each turn of combat is now resolved in a single button press (your action still takes place before your opponent's).
  • Other:
    • Improved gender pronoun options.
      Virginity fetish requirements fixed (need a vagina and to still be a virgin).
  • Bugs:
    • Fixed bug where perk points could be lost when saving/loading in the level up screen.
      Fixed resting text bug.
      Multiple typo fixes.
      I know I didn't do much bug fixing this version, but version 0.1.69 will be better!

    1. Don't sweat about the contents. Just do your best and deliver next week. I already found a bug, with a suggestion: I am missing 2 skill points. I am lvl 11 but my selected fetishes are not there. My suggestion to refund all of our skill and stat points when we import characters. Also there is a small text difference in spacing on the clothing screen pertaining 2 of the piercings.

      BTW I love the small exclamation marks and check marks you added on the buttons in the sex scenes!

      1. Thanks for the feedback! ^^

        There seem to be a couple of bugs with the character importer at the moment, so I'll work on getting those fixed for the next release! Also, the phone menus are a bit rough at the moment. If I get the time this week, I'll improve the layout (and fix that overlapping text bug).

        (And yes, that line at the bottom of the readme refers to you. ^^)

    4. Hey Innoxia, just wanna get a few things out real quick. One, love the game so far, and it's showing a lot of promise. Two, there's a bug with Kate where if you lose your anal virginity to her, it won't show up in the selfie description. And Finally three, are demons going to be futa or not. Thanks for reading.

      1. Thank you! ^^

        I'll get that bug related to Kate's sex scene added to my bug list. It should be fixed for the next version.

        Also, while most demons are going to be 'normal' female succubi (in the lore), there are definitely going to be demon futas as well. (Perhaps coming very soon! ;D)

    5. Played through this one for a bugtest, found a few this time around.

      1. Not sure if I did something wrong, but the character importer does not work. Tried to import a character from 1.68 and it just defaulted to lv 1 male human (instead of lv 7 female catmorph)

      2. A random encounter climaxing from submissive anal will display text as if it's vaginal.

      3. If you try to dye an item while in the shop, the menu will not change to display the available dye colors, instead it will remain on the unqequip/drop/dye/shiftaside menu.

      4. Not sure if this is a bug but using offhand attack has the exact same text to describe the action as the main attack.

      Anyway, don't feel too bad about not being able to make a full release. You're already moving at a much faster and more consistent pace than other adult games out there. So long as you remain consistent with releases a lot of people will keep coming back.

      1. Dunno about the rest but did you export your 1.68 char? I did that mistake once. Go open 1.68 and go to settings and Export character. Then open the 1.68.5 and import. I haven't tested the patch due to the fetishes not porting but the porting works otherwise.

      2. That might be the case. Ty for the tip.

      3. Thanks for your feedback!

        There seem to be a few bugs with the character importer in this version, so I'll try and get them fixed for the next release. (Also, make sure you've exported your 1.68 character, as koolgam3r said. Loading the save file won't work, it has to be an exported .xml file.)

        As to your other three points, I've added them to my bug tracker and will get them fixed as soon as possible. (I'll make sure to give the offhand attack some unique text!)

        I'll make sure to stay consistent with the releases. I know this week's release was a day late, but I'll always make sure to put out a new version every week! (Even if there isn't much new content to see...)

    6. I can see that it isn't quite finished yet. I haven't been able to ride the random enemies or anything. Would be good if there was Cowgirl position for Male and Female characters.

      1. I can't make any promises, but if I get the time after working on this week's goals, I'll add in a cowgirl position.

        (Please don't get your hopes up though, this week's goals are taking quite a bit of time to complete...)

    7. Would like to note that submissive sex after victory still results in corruption gains. You stated that that was unintentional so i was unsure if you were still working on it or it got lost in some of the refactoring.

      I have a suggestion relating to the corruption mechanics. Instead of corruption gains on orgasm after a loss instead corruption could be based purely on actions you as the character take and potions like Lilith's gift. While i think the current mechanic is perfectly fine and forced corruption is kind of a fetish it might better as something based mostly on the actions of the player with a few exceptions like interactions with stronger demons and extremely corrupt individuals.

      If you do decide to change it to only certain npcs it might give more weight to corruption gained in those circumstances, On the other hand the system with the bugs fixed is perfectly functional on it's own.

      1. Yeah, I got a little lost in the big engine work last week and forgot to fix that bug, sorry!

        Now that you can gain corruption quite easily (by using corruptive actions), I'll take another look at the post-submissive-sex corruption mechanic. I like the sound of your suggestion, with only the more corrupt of NPCs being able to corrupt you after sex...

        If I do decide to leave it in, however, the bug will definitely be fixed for the next version!
