Buggy Version 0.1.96.9 Release

Hello everyone! I'm so, so sorry about the late release, as well as the state that this version is in! x_x

The multiple-partner sex engine work took a disastrous turn this morning, and what I thought would be the final little section of code refactoring turned into a cascading nightmare of errors. It's taken me ~16 hours to get all of the (obvious) errors fixed, and I'm sure that there are more I haven't managed to discover yet.

This version is most likely going to be very buggy, so I really would strongly advise waiting for a hotfix (which I'll try and get out mid-way through next week). I'm absolutely exhausted at the moment, so I'm going to catch up on sleep over the weekend, and then work on getting a more polished version out as soon as I possibly can.

It's not all bad news, however. This work that I'm doing now is the last huge amount of engine work that I'll need to do on Lilith's Throne (the combat update will be very simple in comparison), and it's almost all finished. This really will be the last choppy period of the game's development, and once I've finished this (and the combat work), I'll be able to move the game's designation from 'Alpha' to 'Beta'. Thank you all for bearing with me through these rough releases; this will be one of, if not the, last of the highly-buggy updates! ^^


IMPORTANT! The game currently might not work on Java version 9.0.1! You'll need to either use the .exe version, or make sure you're running the .jar using Java 1.8.0_152!

This is still an early alpha, and will most likely contain bugs and half-finished content!

.jar version:

Pre-zipped: Mega

Full folder: Google Drive


.exe version (Please use this if you are on Windows and have not installed/updated java!):

Pre-zipped: Mega

Full folder: Google Drive


Version 0.1.96.9 patch notes:


  • Engine:
    • Did a huge amount of engine work for supporting multiple partners in sex. This required an enormous refactor of how sex is handled in the engine, which took up ~90% of the time this week.
      Final sex mechanics (taking the form of 'lust' and stamina) have been half-added to the engine.
  • Sex:
    • You should now be able to use all of your hands/tails during sex.
  • Gameplay:
    • Added double room upgrade, so you can now house two slaves in each room.
  • Clothing:
    • Added: Women's leather jacket (feminine, over-torso slot). (I added this to complete Kate's new outfit.)
      Added: Striped panties (feminine, groin slot).
      Added: Striped bra (feminine, chest slot).
      Added: Striped thigh-high socks (feminine, sock slot).
  • UI:
    • Moved weapons & jewellery into the 'equipped' panel, so all equipped items are now grouped into the same UI element.
      Fixed bugs related to tooltip positioning causing some UI elements to become inaccessible.
  • Other:
    • Removed 'Wing' clothing slot. (I might add this again in the future, but I was struggling to think of any 'wing clothing' to add to that slot.)
      Tweaked drop rate of racial consumables (the ones that are able to be enchanted into transformatives are now a little more common).
      Added more control over selecting font size in the option menu.
  • Bugs:
    • Minor formatting error fixes.
      The sex action 'Spread ass' is now correctly available for the player.
      NPCs should no longer get stuck on trying to transform your genitals after beating you in combat.
      Enchanted weapons (those with with stat buffs) now correctly apply their buffs when importing a save/character.
      Minor fix to default gender names (changed an instance of 'doll' to 'neuter').
      Minor typo fixes.
      Fixed hypno-watch and Arthur's package being found in alleyways.
      You can no longer purchase Arthur's Room upgrade before progressing to the correct point in the main quest.
      Fixed encyclopedia preview pictures not working.
      Fixed an error in changing what your slave calls you through the 'Permissions' screen.
      Fixed bug where pressing enter on a blank text field would cause the centre panel of the UI to go blank.

    P.S. I'll respond to all of your comments over the weekend. Sorry that this release is so buggy! ;_;

    4. In the future, considering the number of variations according to physiology, number of partners, etc, do you have any plans to let players submit their own writing for certain situations (or even existing situations, to decrease repetition)? Game is great btw.

      1. Technically you already can at the Git Hub you just also have to find a way to make it work in the code

      2. I'm planning on making a more writer-friendly way to submit content after I reach 0.2.0, so I will definitely allow players to submit writing for inclusion into the game! ^^

    5. I don't actually mind this since I prefer you get the work on the engine completed first and then focus on the content, so this works fine for me. Keep up the good work.

    9. I don't know this is a bug or not but...
      there's no penetrative action in the menu (except for the mouth)
      I test it on both as the Heroine (that get raped by mook character/her slave) or Hero (that rape the Heroine, or breeding any other girls that he saw...)
      for your information my Character is a Super Character (I don't think it broke the game since I import it from the last update) ohh and it won't work on NPC either (I don't know about the others but... my Hero can't pen Lilaya)

      suggestion time:
      - Runaway Slave (if you don't equip your disobedience slave with low affection, they can run away (but you can capture them later if you met them)
      - make the slave revolt (if you have ten or more slave that have minus affection and obedience, they'll revolt and attack you in the same time one after another, and if you lose you, Lilaya, Rose, Arthur, and any other loyal slave will be raped in the orgy after that they can either free themselves or enslave you)
      - make your PC enslave able (to free yourself you either have to work in the slave pen to buy yourself or revolt against your master if you are strong enough (and you gonna be handicapped)
      - enlarge Lilaya palace (ask her permission to do that and go to contractor in the Shopping Mall... (from there you can buy a weapon like hammer etc))
      - Group Battle (since you make a Group Sex...)
      - Countable Wings (since 8 set of wings is much more cooler than 1 set of wing)
      - Angelic Tongue...
      - If your PC got raped, your enemy can 'wear' you (if they have the D) as an armor... (you'll be automatically enslaved by this and in the fight you NEED to protect your master or you'll be enslaved by another guy rinse and repeat)

      For Accessories and Clothing suggestion:
      - Wings : Front Wing Armor as Wing Accessory or Purity Seal
      - Hand : Boxing Glove
      - Ankle : GPS Tracker, Iron Ball
      - Anus : Butt Plug, Tail Butt Plug
      - Vagina : Dildo
      - Dick : Horn
      - Vagina Piercing : Vagina Sewing (have the same effect as Chastity Belt)
      - Lip Piercing : Lip Sewing (like the above but for Lip)
      - Horns : Ribbon
      - Tail : Ribbon, Bell (Cat bell)
      - Main Weapon : Magic Sword/Rifle
      - Offhand : Shield/Pistol
      - Armor Set (since I like knight... ohh but with crown not full face helmet)

      And lastly... Take a break (you NEED one)

      1. there is no penetrative option for me as well,and sometimes no blowjob either. also,the encyclopedia reset when i imported my save.

        Delete
      2. Thank you for the bug reports and suggestions! The penetrative bug should be fixed in 0.1.97. (The encyclopedia content is saved in the properties file, so if you copy your old one over into this new version, the encyclopedia content should be there.)

        I'll add all those suggestions to my list! :3

    10. Thanks for the update.

      In the coming combat update will the stats be reworked? As of now it requires you to completely avoid raising stats that you want your character to be somewhat average in and being weak practically requires you to heavily debuff your character. What I'm suggesting is basically a rescaling of the stats or at least their description ranges so that every character isn't considered "superhuman" from level two onwards and to facilitate weakling characters.

      Perhaps have the possibility to start as weak as you'd like with a longer progression between the weak, average and superhuman levels and let players begin with all average stats or a mix of above average and below average ones to balance eachother out.

      1. You can set the difficulty setting in the options menu. Every difficulty but the base has enemies scaling with you, and every higher difficulty has the enemy with higher damage dealt/resistance. The highest difficulty has NPCs at twice your level.

        If someone’s complaining about the PC quickly becoming superhuman, “make everyone else superhuman too” probably isn’t the answer they’re looking for.

        It sounds like what he’s asking for is a change to the engine so level-ups don’t increase base stats, but maybe things like fighting skill, teasing skill, or arcane skill instead, and stat ups are just from things like books, the gym, or potions. It would be a pretty big change, but not a bad one I’d say.

        Delete
      3. I will definitely be reworking & improving the stats as part of the combat update, yes. :3

      Oh no! That really sucks :(.

      You shouldn’t push yourself so hard, just defer the bad code down to the next update. It would be a bit disappointing, sure, but better than a broken update and you exhausting yourself. We’d understand (well, this is the internet, I’m sure some people would bitch, but they’re assholes, so screw them).

    12. Trade works just fine for me.
      Question: did you purposefully remove the option to have sex with your slaves? If so, why? Because I don't want my angel char having sex with demons so that there is a chance for her to give birth to imps.
      Also, in some scenes, I am unable to use my tail to fuck either myself or my bedmate, in any of the orifices.

      1. How did you manage to turn into an angel? I've been playing for a few months and didn't even know that was an option.

        Delete
      2. Well, certainly not by playing honestly, because there are no angel TFs available yet.

      3. Two ways...neither are legitimately in-game at the moment. One is through the debug system (type the word "buggy" during gameplay, without quotation marks). The other is through file editing you export files.

        Delete
      4. I didn't remove the option to have sex with your slaves, I just moved the sex options to a separate response tab (the sex options should still be there under that tab). ^^

    13. STOP... and sleep. I was thinking last night and you should of gone to bed early and posted here that the release would come out Saturday (today) than yesterday. It is more important for you to sleep, than get an update on time.

    14. I don't know if this was on purpose or not, but telling someone to stop self penetrative actions(like self-fingering or tailfucking) doesn't do any good --they go right back to it within the same breath.

    15. well i guess i will give one suggestion for wing clothing item not sure if it is a clothing or piercing though on a decent amount of drawing of humanoids with wings they sometimes have little chains accessory's on top of the wings i guess as a accent or something i probably botched the description but i guess that is really the only thing i can think of just little things since the wings cant be weighed down although i do not mind at all having nothing on the wings as long as i can at least get the 3 standard types as weathered, bat like/membrane, and dragon like/membrane with scale's on back i suppose fairy wings would be nice as well

    16. I hate how much you're pushing yourself, but I really appreciate what you're doing.
      Anyways, you probably already know this, but when I set my character to masturbating, I can't get her to stop. She just goes back to doing it in the same post. Sorry if you already know this. And don't push yourself. You're awesome.

    17. have an idea, choice permanence, there are alot of times I end up pressing buttons to get through actions just because they are repetitive, like the grind up, but the action changes and I press the button again in a 'lets get on with it' kind of way.

      So instead of having all the buttons shift, have the last button you pressed remain where it was.

      1. that would be nice,but i believe it requires too much engine work for TC.

        Delete
      2. not going to pretend to know what would go into programming it, it may be painless, it may be borderline impossible way to sidestep this would be a secondary choice area, I got a 4k monitor over christmas so there's a lot of unused space there, but if i shrink it to 1080p I have every fetish on this character, the fetish list would have to double for it to take up the whole side, and I have yet to see an npc not of my own creation that had more then 2 levels of fetishes, those areas could easily house 4~ or more commands either user selected or just the most recent ones

        Personally I would want talk dirty, fuck pussy, fuck ass, seductive look, and the two displace all options.

        Delete
      3. Thank you for your feedback! I'll look into a way of making the action buttons more static in a future update! ^^

    21. I've seen wing piercings, rings, and similar jewelry before, so I guess there's that for wing slot ideas. Though, have you considered removable arcane/magipunk wings or wing-like effects for the wing slot, rather than just wing-related "clothing"? That could be extended to arcane/magipunk tails, extra limbs, replacement parts, and so on, though that might be a bit too scifi for this setting even if you explain everything away as being ~the arcane~. Would be cool, though.

      Alternatively, you could try a back slot that takes cloaks and similar things. I've never felt like this game was in dire need of backpacks, but there's that option. The idea of a back slot isn't incompatible with the previous wing idea, either!

      These are just a few thoughts that came to mind when you mentioned not having any ideas for a wing slot, not requests or anything like that; I just figured I'd put them forward in case you haven't already decided against something similar and really wanted some ideas. :)

      P.S. Had to rewrite this comment from memory after losing it due to some weird bug of the website. I think I might've forgotten a suggestion or two in the process. :( Oh well. Guess I'll just reply to this comment later if they come back to me.

      Actually, I think the game is pretty much magic-punk already. We’re told “Like everything else that normally would have run on electricity in your world, the lighting, shower, and radiators all appear to be powered by the arcane.”

      Replacing electricity with magic is pretty much the definition of magic-punk. There’s also a Victorian aesthetic suggested a few times, which is pretty common of steampunk, a similar type of thing.
