[Backers] Trials in Bunny Space

Those of you who have been paying close attention to the development of Zheng Shi will have noticed William’s name come up a lot. He came onto the scene slinging bunny-themed hotness left and right, then added a huge orgy scene for seeing your freed slaves go to work, then wrote over 200 pages of mouse boys and girls abusing you for your gems. Well, he’s launched a patreon now. I certainly pay him when he’s doing work I specifically request (like the Shock Hopper content in this patch), but he also writes a lot of stuff entirely out of the goodness and enthusiasm of his own heart. If you like his stuff, consider slinging him some bucks.

Now with the plug out of the way, lets get to the 0.7.243 Changelog:

  • It is now possible to enter the Sidewinder, the prototype ship being built in Zheng Shi! You must defeat your rival and his bodyguard and have the keycard from Dr. Teyaal to get in.
  • Once inside the ship, it’s possible to take on the leader of the Jumpers: the fearsome Shock Hopper and her diminuative bunny boy-toy-slash-domme: the LDC (Large Dick Collider). Between William and Savin there are a lot of victory scenes on offer here.
  • It is now possible to collect the coordinates for the next planet – even if you can’t get there yet. There’s also a few goodies tucked away with it – like an airtight Jumper spacesuit and the legendary fifth Galomax dose.
  • New Busts: Rat’s Raiders (all six), Gil the cuntboy, the LDC, and the Shock Hopper. Great work, Shou & Adjatha!
  • Lots of fixes and tweaks, especially for Rat’s Raiders.
  • Varmints are now considered “self powered” and won’t stop acting just because your shields are down.
  • Probably other stuff I’ve missed! Love you guys!

[Backers | TiTS] Not The Patch You Expected

Adjatha does good work.

You might have expected this patch to be the one with the final boss of Zheng Shi, but you were wrong! That project is going fairly slowly, owing to the massive number of variations within some of its scenes – some of which are cool and support things like tailcocks. Other variations are smaller and more mind numbing, like the following passage I’ve constructed as an example: “Your rigid cock{s} plowing into {his/their} mouth{s}{, your balls battering {his/their} chin{s} with a {weighty/chunky/yogurt-flavored} load}.”

You get the (slightly embellished) idea. It’ll create a great end-result, but it is SLOW to churn through.

Luckily, our community coders have been slowly putting some coded submissions into the repo for use in game. Here’s a nice chunk we’ve gotten ready for you guys.

0.7.242 Changelog:

  • Struggle code was reworked by SomebodyElseEntirely to make it more clean and consistent across the board and also slightly improve Escape Artist for physique-based characters.
  • Showering with Paige is now a thing (largely based off CoC’s “Brooke” scenes), provided by B and coded by LighterFluid.
  • Thanks to the efforts of Whimsalot, you can now name your pet varmint.
  • Lighterfluid spent some time cleaning up Rat’s Raiders as well as putting some more of their finished busts into the game, with help from their author, William.
  • And lastly, Quaelle’s pregnancy expansion (authored by Nonesuch) has been added to the game by DrunkZombie.

Great work guys! I’m going to try and enjoy my weekend and keep chipping at this boss battle when I have time. See you fellas next week for the end of Zheng Shi’s mainline quest progress!


[Backers | TiTS] Bimbofy Your Foxy Crewmate

It appears that Lash has pointed out Badger’s NSFW blog to the tumbr police! (This gave me quite a giggle! Thanks, Roman!)

0.7.241 Changelog:

  • Badger’s “Quest” for Penny can now be completed even if Penny is on your crew. I had to sort through seven different bimbofication variants and make sure the text was all suitable for her being in your ship for this! More time intensive than I thought. I also had to write some additional text for setting her up as a camwhore in order to match everything else bimbo & cumslut Penny has going on.
  • You can now turn Dr. Badger in using Penny’s replacement.
  • [pc.cockHeadsNoun] parser is now properly active. [pc.cockHeads] should also be more correct in its outputs.
  • Various typo fixes.

Of course that wasn’t all I did today. I reviewed (and more or less approved) a saurmorian transformation item as well as a few other smaller projects. I also did payroll and generally fretted around.

The ability to remove Penny from your ship (and pick her up again) remains as the last thing I need to do for Penny’s follower expansion to call it “done” for the foreseeable future. Zheng Shi stuff will come after, but knowing Will, there’s going to be a ton of variations which will slow down coding. Hopefully we’ll have the pirate base done sometime this weekend regardless.

Merry Jizzmas Writing Competition!


[PUBLIC] Ho Ho Ho, Merry Jizzmas!

I snagged this picture of the dryad (Amber) by a pair of artists in the public discord (Roman & Watermystic277). Great work, guys!

Okay, so despite the post title, this doesn’t actually add new Christmas content. However, I’ll be hosting a Christmas-themed contest. Details will be below all the change-log m-m-madness!

0.7.240 Changelog:

  • Bimbo Penny can now be recruited to join your crew if you want a cum-slut on the go. The scene for finding her with Mitzi’s panties should also appear for crew bimbo Penny.
  • A big ol’ pile of fixes, courtesy of Jacques00’s hard work.

New This Month:

  • New quest and minidungeon – recruiting “pure” Penny. This means she can’t be a bimbo or cumslut. Big thanks to the Letter B for helping out with some of the writing on this!
  • New encounter in Zheng Shi: Rat Thieves. The last big gang on Zheng Shi to be represented, Rat’s Raiders, fight in groups of three, containing two male and two female rodents that are randomized per encounter, including a full Female Rodenian. Approaching Urbolg three days after beating him will trigger an event and enable them – rarely in the Mines, and commonly in the Foundry.
    • This all-mouse group will always attempt to shake down unaffiliated people wandering Zheng Shi. You have the option of paying their toll in credits, gems, oral sex, or breastmilk. Fighting them is fine, too. True to their name, they are focused on stealing your credits and gems, and their fighting reflects this. If you lose, expect to be relieved of a lot of cash! Be careful of getting stunned!
    • Rat girls and rat boys have different combat abilities and quirks, some shared. The girls have higher shields, more aim, and focus on damaging shields and hindering you. The boys have higher HP, more physique, and focus on damage output. They will also use items frequently amongst each other. There are either two boys or girls in a fight, changing the dynamic of combat – carrying multiple damage types is heavily advised!
    • After enough wins (or losses!), a series of events kicks off where the Rats determine a little something about Steele! This mini-plot can be concluded with enough interactions and input, leading to benefits down the line while also changing all the interactions dynamically.
  • Cumslut Penny can now be recruited to your crew via a simple new dialogue chain.
  • Crew (pure) Penny can be taken to bed.
  • Sera received an expansion from Nonesuch & DrunkZombie. It adds the ability to turn her Sterilex on or off, a reverse cowgirl wakeup scene, a tweaked shower prank to be avoidable after the 1st time, and a tender pussy fuck sex scene.
  • New Busts: Half-Rodenian Raiders (M & F)
  • New Scenes: Jerking off on holocam with cumslut crew Penny, futa Penny masturbating with Mitzi’s panties, converting regular crew Penny to a camwhore cumslut, volunteering to be Haley’s personal milker, using the ‘taur toys you can get from Urbolg yourself, futa Shekka pegging you, Amber and Mitzi doing “Soak” together. Most of these were penned by Wsan.
  • sackDescript adjusted for better readability.

This time, we’re going with a similar format to the Halloween contest, but a little broader. Entries should be either dreams or a scene for an existing character doing something holiday-themed with you. Rules below:

  • Grand Prize: $100, Judge’s Choice Entries: $75. Neither of the above but used in game? $50. Payout must be done via paypal.
  • Entries should be written as a dream the player can experience while sleeping or as an interaction with an existing character.
  • Entries should still be titillating in addition to holiday-themed.
  • Entries should consist of no fewer than 500 words and no more than 7777 words.
  • No more than two entries per author.
  • All entries are to be posted in this forum thread.
  • Please submit your entry before the clock strikes midnight on the night of Saturday the 15th (of December, ofc).

 


[Backers] Penny Camming & Tweaks & Mouse-folk Busts

Pretty sure everyone on the public discord has seen this bust by now, but if you haven’t… enjoy! (by: Adjatha)

With all the reviewing (and editing) I’ve been doing, I haven’t been coding as much as I ought to be, but that’s fine for the moment. William and Savin have been giving the head Jumpers some real effort and polish. I’m told that we’re down to finishing up the bad ends now

0.7.239 Changelog:

  • New Busts! The half-rodenian boy and girl. I assume these are the nude variants, but they’re all I have, so they’re shoveled in for now.
  • New scene for Camwhore Penny when you and her jerk off into and on each other for the camera. (By Wsan)
  • Adjusted the encounter rates on the foundry deck of Zheng Shi to favor our mousy friends a bit more.
  • The descriptions for ballsacks have had some more adjectives thrown in and a few yanks out. No more mentions of your “empty sack” just because you came recently.
  • Assorted bug fixes and typo corrections.

In non-code news, I finished my edit pass on the Luca expansion to hopefully get her somehwat presentable. I’ve also greenlit five other projects for coding and placed them on our internal trello, one of which was more than 100 pages of screwing around with various New Texan cow-girls. It isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, however. A fair few projects have been rejected, sent back for reworks, or launched into black holes.

Half the reason I hate reviewing projects is that I have to turn down people who have spent dozens of hours slaving over these projects. It’s not fun, and I don’t like doing it.

At least I’m most of the way through July’s submissions and getting into August’s. We catching up, boys!


Reviewnoxo

I’ve been reviewing the backlog recently and greenlit a few smaller projects already. I’ve also been working on editing some content for Luca (the futa VR parlor lady on Canadia Station). I’m always half-way through her 70+ pages. Instead of trying to power through it, my current goal is to wipe out 4-5 pages of editing on each workday until I’m caught up.

Our community could really use some more good editors to help aspiring authors clean up their submissions. Comment-enabled submissions on google docs are actually really good for editing because anyone can suggest edits directly in the text that the author can then accept or reject as needed. Tomorrow will probably be similar, though I’m told Wsan has my Penny commission coming up soon. Look forward to that.

That said, it’s almost 11. I think I’ve earned a chance to play some bad videogames like Fallout 76.

P.S. I spent some time this morning reworking the ballsack descriptor to include details like fluffy/scaly/etc. It should also no longer display text like “empty sack,” because that does not read correctly. Instead I’ve thrown in some more adjective combinations to communicate that you’re backed up or fresh-drained.


[Backers] Penny Camming It Up With Mitzi’s Panties

0.7.238 Changelog:

  • Cumslut Penny can now be recruited onto your ship as a camwhore. Note that if you recruit her this way, calming her down will not be an option as she has no fallback for making money. This comes with a few variants for some of her other scenes, like “Other Crew” for example.
  • Futa Penny can now be caught playing with a pair of Mitzi’s panties, thanks to Wsan. Note that for this scene to occur, the “Other Crew” discussion with Penny must be completed first.
  • Lots of fixes for Penny’s recruitment, the rat thieves, and assorted other things.

I intend to take a break for Thanksgiving, after which I am going to tear into the review backlog with a vengeance. Wish me luck!

Happy Turkey Day everybody!


[Backers] Camming Foxes and Naughty Mice (This Is a Big Boi)

Looks like someone commissioned another pic of the Seer (on Myrellion) and their captain Steele, by Octomush

Seriously big patch hitting today. William’s been working on a group of enemy encounters for Zheng Shi for a long while now – to the tune of 200+ pages of raw, written content and thousands upon thousands of lines of code from Lighterfluid. I haven’t exactly been idle myself in the time since yesterday’s patch either – Penny’s getting some more of her options prepped and ready to be used with her crew variant. Tomorrow I’ll be looking to add a scene for recruiting Cumslut Penny as a camwhore. It should be a simple write.

0.7.235 Changelog:

  • New encounter in Zheng Shi: Rat Thieves. The last big gang on Zheng Shi to be represented, Rat’s Raiders, fight in groups of three, containing two male and two female rodents that are randomized per encounter, including a full Female Rodenian. Approaching Urbolg three days after beating him will trigger an event and enable them – rarely in the Mines, and commonly in the Foundry.
    • This all-mouse group will always attempt to shake down unaffiliated people wandering Zheng Shi. You have the option of paying their toll in credits, gems, oral sex, or breastmilk. Fighting them is fine, too. True to their name, they are focused on stealing your credits and gems, and their fighting reflects this. If you lose, expect to be relieved of a lot of cash! Be careful of getting stunned!
    • Rat girls and rat boys have different combat abilities and quirks, some shared. The girls have higher shields, more aim, and focus on damaging shields and hindering you. The boys have higher HP, more physique, and focus on damage output. They will also use items frequently amongst each other. There are either two boys or girls in a fight, changing the dynamic of combat – carrying multiple damage types is heavily advised!
    • After enough wins (or losses!), a series of events kicks off where the Rats determine a little something about Steele! This mini-plot can be concluded with enough interactions and input, leading to benefits down the line while also changing all the interactions dynamically.
  • It’s now possible to bring Penny to bed, thanks to B! (Unsubtle plug: you can take a peek at his newest project early if you back him on Patreon.) Falling asleep with low energy results in a different, sexy waking scene, so be sure to give it a spin!
  • Penny can now be convinced to become a cumslut while on crew, though the result is her getting into camwhoring rather than opening up for public use.
  • Penny’s cumslut-specific scenes should be re-enabled for crew Penny with necessary logic adjustments made to the text – including the Flahne tryst. Though it occurs to me I forget to add a check to make sure your ship is on Mhen’ga. That’ll come next patch.
  • Various fixes and tweaks.

0.7.236 & 0.7.237 Changelog:

  • Fixes for the new rodent encounter.

[Backers] B-b-b-onus Scenes

Fenoxo upon reading new Penny content. Thanks Shou!

This one is mostly a collection of small, 1-2 scene expansions that Wsan has sent my way along with a little bit of Penny work. The weekend is over, and Fen is back on the workhorse. There might be another patch tonight (or tomorrow) with more follower Penny stuff.

0.7.234 Changelog:

  • Added some flavor text to Penny’s crew approach for if she’s a squirter.
  • Added a new talk option for discussing her newfound squirtiness which then slightly changes the above. Futanari Penny is far more shameless about it.
  • The milodan fertility priestess encounter rates have been increased, and losing to her 4+ times in a row now results in a new bad-end.
  • You can now volunteer to serve as Haley’s personal milker.
  • You can now make use of some of the taur toys you get from Urbolg, so long as you have a penis. (And crew Amber can join in!)
  • Futanari Shekka can now take a swing at your backdoor.
  • Fixes for various typos.
