Accidental Woman is an interactive fiction life sim game for adults. It's built in Twine Sugarcube, and can be played on most OSes and smartphones. In the game, you take the role of a recently single and unemployed man who takes the offer of a longtime friend to move to the secluded town of Appletree. Due to an unfortunate accident, you find yourself completely transformed into a woman, and will have to deal with far more than just transitioning to small-town life!

You just posted the entire game, no need to download it now
I think we should just wait for some updates rather than using the 0.001 version.
There's really no point to this general, even if SO is a dickhead and doesn't deserve our attention, we can just not give him attention without wasting our time.
how much does SO pay you?
We're giving him attention by playing his game.
Anything that we make as a custom scene "mod" is not our fork of the game, as he can just use it if he likes it.
This AW game has real potential.
I fucking hate SO, but I also think the dev of this is a jew for starting a patreon before making the actual game and making $500 for a fucking character creation screen.
better be good anon
The dev of this is the shitstain shilling this. I mean, who else would bother with yet another no content patreonbait to this autism?
Another fucking tg game for broke brains. Don't we have enough of these?
We got enough bitch-ass complainers like yourself so I guess we got that going.
So in the NL thread I'm the one suggesting/asking when we'll get a AW thread. This is good. A bit early, to be honest, but good. I mean, I'm super hyped about the possibilities of this game from the character creation (loved it, still barebones to what the guy can do from first impressions, though) to the options (from taste in characters to the mentality traits) and lastly to the dev being real cool about extra writers, including content that SO would NEVER include and just his past pedigree. So I'm down with this one. This is the game I'll keep my eyes on. The guy seems open to what Newlife should've been. Doesn't shy away from forced/rape content. How he writes it will be the true test.
So with this being the 1st thread can we all get everyone complaining about the whole game being character creation and nothing else cause it's still early in development? Cause that's gonna be a recurring theme until we see what the dev pops out for the first update. Now I don't mean all the framework he's putting in but actual story/sex scenes. We're not there yet, for sure, but when that day comes I hope to God it shuts anyone dogging on him and makes his Patreon worth it. Cause let's admit it right now, no idiot does this shit for free when they can get money and y'all delusional if you think someone should white Knight his days away so we can fap for free (which we already do cause some guy here will fork over money and drop the Patreon version anyway).
But if it all turns to shit and he drops it or gets greedy…well, I'll remember how excited I was and realize what I'm doing with my life is questionable.
What a fucking wall of text
why are so many transformation games text only?
If you cant draw then make 3d renders like every other greedy talentless jew does
A lot of tranny games recently
Couldn't this general be combined with the Newlife general?
I mean they're pretty identical games, at least gameplay wise so far
Just like the COC general has TITs in it, the ERA games thread has tons of games in it and Trap Quest has Diaper quest in it
Wouldn't it make sense to have games with identical gameplay be in the same thread?
Wow. Based on the amount of people mindlessly bitching about how this game doesn't cater to their stunted imaginations, I can already tell it's going to be a really good game. I'll definitely keep an eye on this one.
>people actually think pages and pages of checkboxes will translate into meaningful variation in the content itself
I know not everything is alright in the head of a tranny fetishist, but come on now. Adding meaningless placeholders that imply future features is textbook method for baseless promises without any obligations to actually deliver. The user can only blame themselves if they imagined anything would come out of it.
This non-game has been carefully designed to tickle the fancies of the target audience without havign to deliver anything. And it has worked splendidly. Clearly the author knew what he was doing.
>Wouldn't it make sense to have games with identical gameplay be in the same thread?
The joke is on you, I wanted to say, because Accidental Woman has no gameplay. But the joke is actually on us because they're indeed identical…
Back to your dumbshit weeb visual novels, you.
What fucking gameplay? The game is literally just a character creator then a single scene wherein it tells you "Whoops, no content"
Tone it down a bit and someone might fall for it.
That's 90% of what's on TFgames.
Does it shove the tranny shit in your face the whole time or can you just ignore it in the intro?
It's the same like Newlife, and that wasn't tranny either.
In my mind tranny stands for transvestite and/or shemales, not for implausible MTF transformations and the like
On that note, their is a whole lot of gay porn on TFGames too
I'm cautiously optimistic that he's taken the road of building a solid foundation first as in clothes etc before throwing in any actual gameplay with benis in vagina action.
Though if he just ignores most stuff he's implemented so far it's just like GL.
>all these triggered TF fags
lots of customization, that's nice
>already getting $500+/month on patreon
still looks better than SO´s puke but thats easy
i love this kind of games but too bad there dont seem to be any better ones out there than Newlife.
yet i still pray for the day someone leaks out the game's code and we can get different shit out of it
this is /hgg/ 8chan, I was talking about it, I don't visit your tranny website
reminds me of ETO/Girl life
I really hope he isn't going to add shitty porn screenshots to sex screens like those garbage RAGS games
Yeah, it's the large department store that has everything you'd expect. It has the player's first experience with buying clothes, has a small pharmacy for an introduction there, and also has a hair salon and optometrist to give players their first chance to change their hair style and wear glasses. (there will be better salons, and a "Sunglass Slut" in town) It's also something of a test for how I want to build the game maps. First is the travel mechanic, where the game figures out how you get from A to B, and can trigger any location-specific events, as well as describe your trip. Next is map events, which come in two flavors "major" and "minor". Minor are mostly flavor events, major are either things like running into an NPC you've met, or a friend, game-world related stuff (like finding a line of people camping out to buy the new Pear iJackit smart device.) and finally some of the seasonal things related to the Institute and mysteries of Appletree.
So, to answer your question, I don't have any BIG storyline stuff planned specifically for Bullseye, though some of it could occur there. I DO however have some minor things planned for the location. One, which is a hook into a exhibition/voyeurism and cum play storyline is already in place, and there are more planned. (such as a pharmacist who you can talk into hooking you up with certain contraception-related goods, and a changing room blackmail event involving a camera and an electronics department employee…)
would you consider adding the option of starting the game as a woman who never was a man?
Apparent age is 12 minimum.
Are you the dev?
If so, i've got a question, are you trying to incorporate things like the looks, body, muscularity, race, skin/eye colour etc frequently in the sex scene descriptions?
In New Life i allways found it annoying how there's barely any descriptions going on and most that do are just about the size of the dick in action which makes it feel kinda… i dunno, mechanical? soulless like there's only the action but not much more "in-depth" descriptions of the scenes going on.
Also another thing, please treat the player character sort of like he'd be Gordon Freeman of the text-based sex-games as in someone who never EVER talks or if she does so you dont excplicitly write what she says but more like how she agrees/disagrees/nods peacefully etc.
100% this. I like filling in what my character said, just nodding would be great for the dev since less in this case is more and faster development on the more important content
I'm not sure that's the dev. Someone might have copied it from the blog.

>[ ] Disable Forced Content: rape, non-conscent, dubious conscent, sexual assault
>[ ] Disable Violent Content: violence, death, extreme S&M content
>[ ] Disable Extreme Content: extreme fetish content
Would that be scat and guro? Or is guro under Violent? Cause I'm fine with violence as long as it doesn't cross into guro.
this isn't even half of what you should be showing in a pre alpha and money is being charged for this crap? What the fuck?
It's free, there's no Patreon version. Y'all thick.
The blog says that there will be a Patreon version with the public version being a month behind (same as Splendid Jew), I'm assuming he isn't doing it yet so he can get peoples' attention easier.
Minimum age is 12. Hopefully, that option stays forever.
Might be more specific once any content gets added. Right now, none of this matters at all until we get the ability to get past step one: make your PC.
>Hopefully, that minimum goes lower
It already got pushed to 14 so you're both out of luck.
Beg for lower or at least a version that allows lower. I'm sure this guy will listen.
Wow, another tranny general. Arn't I surprised.
You think these people post this shit here because of how successful Free Cities is? At least that has content, this is nothing.
Easy to fix and write content for since it's open source. Game will just receive another loli/preg mod treatment.
>that has content
Trash content is just as bad as no content.
Yeah, I know that, but there's no version yet as he believes it isn't justified yet. I understand the appeal of a Patreon version and this guy doesn't seem like an idiot. I'm fine with the whole thing so far, he seems level-headed. For now, at least.
Not to you but to basically everyone else: Bit disappointed in this thread so far, to be honest. A lot of back and forth on the whole Patreon Jew thing, very little discussing about the dev being open to content submissions which we can already do via Google Docs. He's got a forum just for content submissions. Glad that we're finally moving away from Newlife (or at least attempting to). Good, SO never liked the fanbase here and we're better off focusing our energy on this new dev.
The writing is quite good and if he actually adds the fetish content that is listed in the game, its going to be 100% better than Newlife, IMO.
>100% better than Newlife
Two times zero is still zero.
I just hope this game has some actual fucking content for you if you want to be a "pure chaste maiden" as in being able to perhaps even be a prostitute going through mental gymnastics thinking she's still pure'n chaste because she only takes it in the pooper and keeps her virginity/vagina for her boyfriend etc.
Many people flak SO for being a prude and i have to agree BUT for the moment on pretty much every one of these kind of games from CoC to NL or GL there's nothing else to the game than banging or being banged by as many people as possible like it's fucking normal.
Too much excessive sex without fuck'all behind it is just booooo~ring.
Except you can finish CoC and NL being a virgin (GL has no ending)
It's not what the games are for, but it's still possible.
I don't know what gets you into the mood, but you're complaining about all these things in these games while you can stick to just one person or none at all.
>Except you can finish CoC and NL being a virgin (GL has no ending)
Yeah but there's not much content in doing so.
Well in New Life maybe there's more if you stick to one boyfriend but on CoC if you just stay pure and chaste you miss most of the content as the game is clearly made so that to "enjoy" all of it you have to fuck or get fucked by everything that moves apart from maybe demons as those raise your corruption level.
Even if it's possible it's not much fun when there's fuck all to do other than maybe grind levels/skills that mostly serve to gateway some sex scenes tied to high levels.
>perhaps even be a prostitute
I'm pretty sure there is a prostitution stat in the game
Is it possible to equip chastity wear and buttplugs?
not really my fetish but its good to have content in it like that
>if you just stay pure and chaste you miss most of the content
A game that's centered about multiple aspects of sex is obviously going to miss content if you choose not to pursue those aspects.
If there's 20 "waifu"s in a game and you choose to only sex up one, then obviously you're missing out on 19/20th worth of content assuming they have equal content.
I'm not sure what you're expecting.
It's like playing a 4X game and then complain you miss out on content because you only want to trade in that game… What are you expecting?
He's probably expecting good content. Not trash like Fenoxo's.
Looks promising, assuming it actually becomes a game. Obviously not something that should be supported until some basic elements are in (at least one sex scene, whatever your workplace/job ends up being, shopping at one store), I will bookmark this and check back in like 3 months.
Pretty much this:
Or more accurately like Girl Life turned out.
I dont mind if my niche fetishes arent catered towards to, i just hope this game turns out okay and doesnt fall into the pitfall where pretty much only way to play the game and enjoy it's content is to roleplay as a bimbo-slut who sleeps with everyone and everything regardless of what it is.
Yeah it's gonna be a game centered on you having sex but man fuck maybe it's just my shitty thing but for me it just feels empty if the sole goal there is is to fuck around as much as possible especially if there's no depth or real drawbacks to it.
I wish I didnt spend that time making the character since no content.
Okay that's fair enough. So basically you criticize that games like these build "wide" and not "tall" (You may not be familiar with these terms if you haven't played games similar to civ)
Criticizing the point that there's a lot of NPC's in games like these but not much to them. That's a good point, but that's not how I interpreted your first message.
The problem is simple; it's easy to make a lot of NPC that have a "Lets grind some progress until you can fuck and then you move on to another NPC". Making one in-depth with a backstory and having an NPC actually have character takes a different kind of writer.
Moreover, we're talking about devs that either write in russian and get machine translated or badly translated (That even with good translation will feel empty)
Or we get devs like Fenoxo and SO that spend 1 hour work for 5K a month.
I find it weird though. Because erotic games aren't new. Game developers have been around from before I was born and human creativity existed before fire was discovered.
Where does it all go wrong?
I wrote all of that with the assumption that I am correct this time in understanding your point. If I still don't get your point then I guess that all doesn't make sense.
Personally I think H-games have come as far as it needs to go, and all it will do from now on is continue to devolve. They will become walking simulators with no engaging gameplay. And there will be constant complaints from new-fags that the game is too hard, and want freshly written cheat engine guides despite it being decades old
I've still yet to see the effects of 'good writing' in porn. The most I ever see is some really good vanilla porn stories, but those are just a light read and not erotic. I am not even aroused by legitimate suffering either.
Are you >>114268 ?
If so, more confused than ever.
>Personally I think H-games have come as far as it needs to go
I completely disagree. There are barely any, if any, that show any sign of progress after fucking. Usually that is the end of the story for that NPC.
There's no such thing as slowly becoming a real date person and then eventually husband/wife material.
There's a ton you can do, like with your bf/gf having issues at work and their boss/colleague trying to get in their pants and you have the chance to fend them off or let it happen etc.
The latter is there in some games, but on the most basic level imaginable. You can make some really serious things happen and with good gameplay, happen like the player intended them to, with bad gameplay, have things go to pieces for them is fine. (going to the gym to be able to beat up someone or fucking around with someone else and then lose your GF/BF completely etc (And not (necessarily) in the rape way as its usually done))
No, it can go a lot deeper than what it is, I think.
OH WOW, A GAME WHERE YOU START AS A MAN WHO TURNS INTO A WOMAN?
THIS HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE, IT'S SO REVOLUTIONARY, I THINK I'M GONNA GO PLAY THIS GAME RIGHT NOW!
Said no one in the last 3-5 years.
The fact that you're getting money for making this travesty is a fucking divine comedy. Half of the shit in CC is blatantly just taken from Free Cities, and I can smell the fagiase from here. I hope you get abducted by aliens so they can place an implant in your brain which makes you want to do something else, because killing yourself after all this would just be too unproductive.
I am >>114323 and was a separate anon. The idea of roleplaying these scenarios is neat, but I'd have to see these things actually being made to be convinced otherwise. Writing has stagnated and a lot of people are just impatient to get to the fucking. And things that aren't dependant on writing has very little room for growth, as the required effort to provide a greater experience than what we have now is too much.
I've gotten my fill of unnecessary grind for dating in Sims 3 porn mods and EraTW. Having to actually deal with relaitonships sounds like a drag, how is that even erotic?
You're just spouting bullshit now, anon. You can't play this game, or the hundreds of other 0.0.1 games like this.
My problem is substance more than anything. You can only be a slut in Fenoxo's games to actually get content, and being a slut just for being a slut really stops being a turn on after 5 minutes into the enormous amounts of walls of text.
The world is pretty much "empty", there are no real issues to be solved, everyone thinks of fucking 24/7, their preferences include EVERYTHING (yours too, your only response is positive, all the time) but that pretty much renders everything over the top vanilla, you're a husk that can't actually have any type of personality since the only thing you can really do is fuck, fuck and fuck some more, again, with the only answer being "Yeah, I totally love this!", there are no real consequences, there are no regrets, not even one ounce of negative emotions, there's no change, the character's the same most of the time with some scenes where it's clear there were multiple writers, meaning that you sometimes see some dissonance.
This is what I mean when I say there's no "substance". Nothing has any meaning, nothing TRIES to have any meaning, that works if say, I'm playing something like DOOM, where I can enter and just start slaughtering masses of demons for fun, but if I'm trying to get aroused and have a nice fap, I'm not going to get anywhere with this shit.
I'm struggling to find a balance between people like you with points like:
>Personally I think H-games have come as far as it needs to go
Which is a good point, don't get me wrong. But on the other side of the spectrum there's people that go:
>If you dont let others add scenes and npcs then you're just an attention faggot
I honestly agree a lot more with you, but the latter also has a lot of merit to it. I mentioned in another thread here on 8ch that I'm looking for opinions and when I expressed my consideration of making a closed source game, someone went totally bonkers.
People are hard to please. But if anything, I think things like Newlife will become a huge mess with everyone bringing in their own "quality" stories into it now (Not like there's much there in the first place, but if there was and people come up with a large "variety of quality" events then people like you get pissed off.
If you don't allow that, then people get pissed off that you make it closed source to make sure the quality is consistent.
It is just… You can't really have best of both worlds (Although in new life's example it's probably worst of both worlds anyway, it was a very poor example but the most recent one where people can add in their own stuff now)
I wrote that like a total fucking idiot. I should stop conversing while drunk.
I'm not the same person.
I played this and I liked it.
I am waiting on more content before I patronize it. +A Character creation
About adding scenes from outside.
Working in tandem or you know, edit the scene yourself, are the two only options.
If your game is based on personality options (e.g. just some extra variables), then it becomes easier to add scenes.
To be fair, you need to be quite interested to actually make something worthwhile, if you're in it only for the money and it's just a chore for you to do this, then it's clear that your product will not be that great when you meet up with some obstacles like these (writing isn't easy), but there are methods to write "objectively", e.g. see Era games, when using training commands the only things that changes usually (Tohok) are the adjectives mostly based on variables like skill and how much you like the person in question, something Newlife does not do, instead, to me it seems Newlife chooses from a bunch of random phrases and sticks with those no matter what, unless you lack certain personality choices, and your relationship with the characters only gives you the opportunity to use new commands but they don't really change much. Tohok for example, gives you dialogue based on relationship (mostly, never saw on skill, but TW does that) and commands that change flavor text (mostly adjectives) based on your relationship/skill/status of the individual.
I think someone should send Eratohok, EraTW and Eramegaten to this author and have him take references.
You should also think of nuances. Some options might couple up well with others or you can extend personality choices to be more of a spectrum when it comes to acts.
E.g. a dumb example, if you have an option to dislike futas, then having a threesome with a futa and a woman might be impossible, or you won't have as many options or have it so that with repeating the scenes, you start to no longer dislike (corruption but for character traits, can easily be turned OFF in options, but this type of nuance can make shit a lot more enjoyable, the way I see it).
tl;dr at bottom
The nuance thing is good food for thought but throwing in so many variables (Depending on genders, preferences, perhaps forced (drunk/drugs/blackmail etc)) starts to get complicated really fast. Especially with the modifiers for the game in the OP.
>Working in tandem or you know, edit the scene yourself, are the two only options.
There's no way a single person can keep up with "community driven contribution" especially if it gets popular.
>If your game is based on personality options (e.g. just some extra variables), then it becomes easier to add scenes.
I would really like to make it a bit more personalized than "Oh by the way, you like his big balls because of your pregnancy fetish!", come up with 20 ways to describe that sentence and use one at random for every scene for a guy with big balls.
Because that's exactly what Newlife feels like for me. It makes scenes feel very generic. Going out with one selfish prick is the same as going out with a different selfish prick in Newlife. Sure one is chubby and the other likes big breasts… There are at least some traits that provide variety (Such as impregnators trying to sabotage your contraceptives)… But almost all of it feels very generic because, once again, one impregnator is the same as the other.
>To be fair, you need to be quite interested to actually make something worthwhile, if you're in it only for the money and it's just a chore for you to do this, then it's clear that your product will not be that great when you meet up with some obstacles like these (writing isn't easy)
My plan is to - at best/worst (Depending on your view of these things) - have a donation system where I encourage people to donate only AFTER they feel like they've enjoyed it.
So they enjoyed it for a few weeks, perhaps that's worth 2-5 bucks for them. The next time they come back and they like the new content, then do the same.
I strongly discourage people to shell out money "in hopes" it motivates devs to work on the game, or to make it go faster. The opposite has proven true for many, many patreon games.
With the method I suggested (And will suggest if I ever get this off the ground…) there would be no regrets because you paid for what you already got and not what you may or may not get in the future.
It's less greedy and 100% safe from the customers perspective. Yes you get paid less. But I quoted your sentence to make a point that I do this for fun and not money.
Time is of no concern to me. I don't need to demand $500 (cough Accidental Woman) before I start a game that's remotely playable.
If it ever gets off the ground and I prove to the people that I can actually write adequately and bring out content at a steady pace, then perhaps I'd introduce a Patreon system. But unlike others, I want to earn my worth first.
tl;dr Do it for fun, people only pay for what they already got (If they want to), no one loses anything.
That's where they're coming from dumbass, they're leaking here to shill their shitty games.
At least we're not getting it as bad as /htg/ is getting it
every single thread feels like a shill post

It would be alright if they at least communicate with us then, right? At least that'd add some value to posting it here to both them and us.
Not like that's gonna happen, but if it DID, then there'd be some merit to it!
Hopefully your experience will work out for you when there's some content in the game…
>>The game doesn't save any values ever
Yeah, I had this problem too.
Just a heads up for anyone trying this out, if you save and load your save all your values get fucked up, so go for a single playthrough with no saves, and don't get attached to your save cause they're fucked.
So… $500 for a character checkbox game that doesn't save the checkbox choices.
I know you guys are cutting him some slack but, are you realizing what you're doing?
>Patreon FROM DAY 1
>army of shills, out of (((nowhere)))
>version.001 no content but it's coming soon :^)
Is this the most cancerous H-game in recent history?
Sometimes I wonder if you anons understand the problems you're creating.
If this author becomes like SO, then I would understand, but it's not as if any of you need to give him Patreon money, or is it hard to keep your money in your pockets?
Patreon whoring is annoying, but none of us have to go with it, as for now, this author is trying, and the prospects look better than Newlife, when Newlife was never once promising (it was known pretty much from day 1 that this'll be limited in content because the author is a retard).
All you do is make it more difficult for the community to influence the game if you're just going to diss it and that's all.
I don't think anyone that's a long time regular on /hgg/ is actually paying to the patreon.
Other people from tf site or whereever they come from fork up $500 to pay this dude to make a game, and no one here on /hgg/ has to spend a single dime, unless you're a sucker, but I doubt /hgg/ regulars are suckers that actually give money to projects that essentially haven't gotten any content.
>I doubt /hgg/ regulars are suckers that actually give money to projects that essentially haven't gotten any content.
Except furfags, they got money to throw away.
It's a plain scam. There is no "prospects" in there. It's just a bunch of fake choices masquerading as a character creator, created to milk some cash out of retards who can't see through the false promises.
I probably won't be playing this again. It was bad enough that you get cheated on right at the start, but the code tells me not to get my hopes up. There are some nice perk choices, but the rest of the writing isn't all that great either.
And I think you're jumping to conclusions too fast. I think people were stupid to shell out money already, absolutely. But it's not my loss and I don't want to jump to conclusions too fast.
Agreed and agreed. I hope he proves me wrong, because who doesn't want a good game for once? But we'll see, I'm not paying anything so it's not my loss if this is the end of it…
That concept sounds a lot better than what AW is doing, but it is my opinion after all.
>there are no prospects
>literally mentions the character creator
Also, don't claim that this is "masquerading" as anything, it's mentioned on the blog that this game has no content.
You also don't know anything about false promises since the only promise that was made is about a future update that will come soon.
I don't know how hgg can be so retarded sometimes. Somehow Lilith's Throne is OK because content somehow makes it acceptable that the author is baiting for Patreon cash.
This author didn't do anything of the sort (yet, maybe), he went on and opened a Patreon and that's it.
Is it hard not to give your money to random Patreons?
I almost fell for it, but then I realized the post was just too plain self-contradicting to have been made with any sincerity.
2/10, you tried.
>can't point out even one contradiction
Right, whenever you'll stop being retarded, I'll be here.
I didn't change the heightCM line since I never pay attention to metric, but looking at it now I probably should have since I left it retarded. Could probably just change it to Math.round($PC.height * 2.54) since the value you enter for $PC.height is just total inches.
How is the Lilith's Throne dev "baiting for Patreon cash"? They're far less restrictive than the AW dev plans to be.
It's the same old of microtransactions. If you don't want to wait it out or go through boring shit to get the game, you have to pay on Patreon.
It's true that it's less restrictive, but it's less ethical and more scummier.
Holy shit are you the same fag from the LT thread that kept going on about microtransactions? Was getting banned once not enough to make you realize you're a retard?
How is Patreons getting buggy, unfinished releases prebuilt (that you can compile yourself for free) worse than the regular monthly release being gated behind a Patreon wall (which AW is going to do)? There's nothing scummy or unethical about it, you're just a lazy retard.
I have no issues compiling the files actually. I do that for other games too.
It's the fact that they're asking for money for a compiled, earlier released files that is the problem. It's a scummy way to incentivize, just like microtransactions.
>You can get it for free
>All you need to do is go through hoops or wait it out
They could have just locked it behind a Patreon wall and not let you get it at all. Even then, you'd still only have to wait two weeks for the full release as usual. You're literally complaining about nothing, for the sake of complaining and being a whiny cunt.
>literally takes 1 person to compile and post for that to fall through, à la pregmod & free cities setup
Really grasping at straws laddy.
You can also wait for those gacha coins too.
Pregmod/Free Cities is completely free and won't try to bait you into paying.
Principles only affect games you don't like, right?
What the fuck are you even talking about at this point? You literally have no argument
>Pregmod/Free Cities is completely free and won't try to bait you into paying.
>Principles only affect games you don't like, right?
Except it's the exact same setup as LT you fucking retard.
- Free Cities and Lilith Throne only release compiled versions on their blog on release dates
- But if you want, you can download from the git and compile it yourself manually
- They both have patreons which don't affect the above two points
The only reason people think higher of Free Cities is because the Pregmod dev is KIND enough to you all to compile the thing and post it for you every single time he makes the slightest update. Had LT a modder that was like Pregmod dev, it would be an indistinguishable setup.
The funniest part is people have refrained from posting compiled LT builds specifically because people like him kept complaining about it
I thought so, you're too retarded to understand simple words.
> you'd still only have to wait two weeks for the full release as usual.
>You can also wait for those gacha coins too.
If you don't know what gacha is, you can always deduce it from the fact that I'm talking about microtransactions.
>- They both have patreons which don't affect the above two points
LT DOES affect the above two points, those that pay on Patreon get the compiled version earlier.
Hence why it's similar to microtransactions.
But it's not at all comparable to microtransactions. The fact that you keep trying to hang on to that only proves that you have no argument whatsoever.
>>- They both have patreons which don't affect the above two points
>LT DOES affect the above two points, those that pay on Patreon get the compiled version earlier.
>Hence why it's similar to microtransactions.
So LT gives out an optional bonus for the extra eager faggots whereas Free Cities doesn't, LT gives you more options and that's bad?
How is it not comparable to microtransactions? In most F2P's that involve microtransactions, if you waste enough time, you can get the items they have you pay for for free.
It's a pain in the ass, hence why you're more eager to pay.
>So LT gives out an optional bonus for the extra eager faggots
Microtransactions do the same.
Except preview builds are buggy and unfinished, and take less than two minutes to compile. It's not at all the same as a microtransaction. Again, they could have just not let you compile it at all.
>microtransaction microtransaction microtransaction gacha coins microtransaction I have no argument microtransaction microtransaction
You're repeating yourself when I already went out and debunked that point.
Giving out a shitty version doesn't change anything, hell, that makes it worse.
The barrier is exactly that, the fact that you have to compile it, or otherwise, you can pay some cash and get it earlier than others, just like with pretty much any f2p microtransaction.
And what is Pregmod Dev in your microtransactions analogy?
Honestly, I feel like the only way to satisfy some people would be if the github was setup with script that automatically compiled the build every time someone pushed to the git, while also linking the latest compiled build to the thread every time someone pushed to the git, basically an automatic push-to-deploy system that also posted to the thread.
Lmao you didn't "debunk" anything, you just said "microtransaction" a bunch with nothing to back it up. I really doubt anyone has donated specifically to get prebuilt previews. It's just an extra "thank you" to contributors. And if you don't want to pay, you're free to compile it yourself. There's literally no similarity to a microtransaction no matter how many times you say it.
Pregmod is basically asking for donations.
LT is being scummy with the way it incentivizes you.
If LT would have barred it or wouldn't have asked for money for early compiles, I wouldn't have had any issue with it, really.
It's pretty hypocritical that HGG doesn't have any issues with it in the first place, and quite baffling too.
>Giving out a shitty version doesn't change anything, hell, that makes it worse.
But that's what you're asking for, you want to be on the cutting edge of development, so you're gonna get something that will inevitably be buggy because it's not a full release (which would be checked for bugs when posted onto the blog, like FreeCities, LT and every sensible dev does).
>There's literally no similarity to a microtransaction no matter how many times you say it.
Really? I thought I was pretty clear here:
>The barrier is exactly that, the fact that you have to compile it, or otherwise, you can pay some cash and get it earlier than others, just like with pretty much any f2p microtransaction.
Again, it's not about what is being pushed out in the first place. It's the practice that comes with it.
Do you know why microtransactions are bad? Hint, it has nothing to do with the fact that you can pay for shit in-game, it's what you pay for exactly and the way it makes you pay for it.
First of all, what's wrong with trying to give contributors a reason to contribute? Most people aren't going to throw money at a game for nothing in return, and a dev can't just push out updates without either stopping development to find a job or getting income from donations.
Second of all, it's incentivizing it LESS than if it were just gated behind Patreon. "You can get it prebuilt by paying, but you can compile it yourself for free". You're literally contradicting yourself.
>Pregmod is basically asking for donations.
>LT is being scummy with the way it incentivizes you.
Well there you are, because without Pregmod there is no difference in the setup between FreeCities and LT, you don't get early compiles at all with FreeCities without Pregmod dev, and Pregmod dev isn't the creator of FreeCities, he's a completely separate entity, and so I repeat >>114656
But they're not getting it any earlier than anyone else. Patreons get it at the same time it goes up on Github for anyone to compile for free. It takes literally two minutes. So again, no matter how many times you shout "MICROTRANSACTIONS", they're not at all the same.
Point out a game where microtransactions for thing X are loudly complained about, but thing X can actually be gotten by any 1 person and given out instantaneously to everyone else with no additional effort?
Or where literally anyone can get thing X for free with minimal effort
>First of all, what's wrong with trying to give contributors a reason to contribute?
Nothing at all, it's what reasons you give them that change the whole equation.
Which is worse, a gun to your head or no gun to your head? I'm sure the answer is pretty obvious.
Of course, this is an exaggeration, but the point remains the same.
>Most people aren't going to throw money at a game for nothing in return
Are you sure? E.g. Youtube content creators get quite a lot of money without barring you in any way.
>You're literally contradicting yourself.
That's because yours is a strawman, see above.
No, this isn't the same thing at all. It's not even about earlier builds, it's about the way it incentivizes you, is it such a difficult subject for you?
Patreon donors do get the full version earlier, you're blatantly lying.
Ethical concerns don't necessarily care about the outcome. You're missing the point.
>Which is worse, a gun to your head or no gun to your head?
But there's no gun to your head at al???
>Youtube content creators get quite a lot of money without barring you in any way
You're not directly giving money to Youtubers, you're generating ad revenue by watching an ad before their video (IE, barring you in some way).
>Patreon donors do get the full version earlier
No, they get PREVIEW builds at the SAME TIME the PREVIEW build goes up on github for anyone to download for free. The full, public release goes up on the public blog for anyone to publicly download for free.
You guys doubled the thread count in under an hour. Well done.
This thread has more content than the game
>Ethical concerns don't necessarily care about the outcome. You're missing the point.
You're Ethical concerns basically amount to the idea that the creator of LT is jewing people with the latest compiled version that can only be gotten by being a patreon or through great effort. Except it can be gotten without being a patreon and with no effort.
The difference between your complaints about microtransactions for Thing X that stems from people's experience with online f2p and p2w games is that those systems do not let you get said Thing X easily, often through extra Hours, Weeks or Months of grinding to make up for it, if it's even possible (that's how they get people to pay, that's how the jewing works), and they may ban you, punish you if you some how hack your way into doing it and find out.
Whereas with LT, you are given a simple list of instructions on how to get Thing X for free that doesn't take you Hours, Weeks or Months of grinding, and not only that, but YOU CAN GET IT INSTANTLY, FOR FREE, WITH NO EFFORT AT ALL were ANYONE to compile and link it. AND LT can not ban you or punish you for getting the latest compiled version for free through some other method.
That's not actually a real feat however.
Why are you trying so hard to miss the point.
>But there's no gun to your head at al???
>Of course, this is an exaggeration, but the point remains the same.
There's no gun to your head when it comes to microtransactions either.
It's simple manipulation.
>You're not directly giving money to Youtubers
I'm talking Patreon.
>you're generating ad revenue by watching an ad before their video (IE, barring you in some way).
That's not the same thing though and being barred isn't the issue, as I said in the same post you're replying to.
>No, they get PREVIEW builds at the SAME TIME the PREVIEW build goes up on github for anyone to download for free.
They get full versions earlier, otherwise you're saying the TL blog is lying.
Reading is hard, you're still missing the point.
Using the same system like microtransactions but poorly does not mean that it's not the same system.
>Reading is hard, you're still missing the point.
>Using the same system like microtransactions but poorly does not mean that it's not the same system.
No, you're still desperately trying to conflate LT with microtransactions despite being proven that LT setup cannot incentive anyone in the same fashion as microtransations with the gaping hole in your argument being that LT allows for instant, free distribution to all parties whereas microtransaction systems go out of their way to disallow instant, free distribution to all parties.
You are, essentially, pointing at a frog and trying to call it an elephant because it has 4 fours.
>There's no gun to your head when it comes to microtransactions either
Then why the fuck did you use that analogy in the first place lmfao
>I'm talking Patreon
THEN WHY BRING UP YOUTUBERS???
>They get full versions earlier, otherwise you're saying the TL blog is lying
They don't get full versions earlier, and no where on the blog does it say that
>Reading is hard
Yeah, it sure fucking must be for you to fail this hard at comprehending simple concepts
>tfw reading your argument with him
>he brings up points
>you address those points
>he dismisses his own points
>No, you're still desperately trying to conflate LT with microtransactions despite being proven that LT setup cannot incentive anyone
No, you haven't proven that it doesn't incentivize anyone. It's also dumb to make such an absolute claim.
Being incentivized =/= actually committing the action you're being incentivized for =/= the issue.
Again, check out:
To give you an analogy for why your argument is a failure, attempted murder is still murder even if the perpetrator failed spectacularly, made the victim laugh and died instead of them.
The mere fact that someone cannot do something properly (mostly or at all) does not mean that they're not doing that something or attempting to do it.
>whereas microtransaction systems go out of their way to disallow instant, free distribution to all parties.
That's not true of all microtransactions and those are still scummy.
>You are, essentially, pointing at a frog and trying to call it an elephant because it has 4 fours.
I don't know what 4 fours are, I believe you meant legs. But no, this oversimplification is false.
Reddit, please, stop being retarded. A gun is also an incentive. What I did is called an analogy.
>THEN WHY BRING UP YOUTUBERS???
Because a lot of them use Patreon, get a shitload of money, and their content is completely free.
>They don't get full versions earlier, and no where on the blog does it say that
>If you're supporting me on patreon, you can get a preview build of the game on there.
>Yeah, it sure fucking must be for you to fail this hard at comprehending simple concepts
There's no need to project, Reddit.
Also, take your retarded friend with you back to where you came from:
is still attempted murder*
This shit shouldn't have its own thread. Neither the concept nor execution are original and the fact game is at v0.01 yet getting patreon supporters makes me wonder if the dev isn't actually paying some russian bots for patreon equivalent of botted instagram likes or twitter retweets. So it looks like the game is not garbage even though obviously it is.
I don't want to set the world on fireeeee, I just want to start an inferno in one of the /hgg/ threads.
>If you're supporting me on patreon, you can get a preview build of the game on there.
>you can get a preview build of the game on there
Boy, reading sure is hard
Anyways, you clearly have no argument. Literally all you're doing is shouting "MICROTRANSACTIONS" and coming up with retarded analogies that make no sense at all and have no relation to this situation, then when you start getting desperate you start calling people "Reddit", as if you aren't the epitome of normie faggotry.
>No, you haven't proven that it doesn't incentivize anyone. It's also dumb to make such an absolute claim.
>Being incentivized =/= actually committing the action you're being incentivized for =/= the issue.
It'd doesn't incentivize anyone in the same manner being shown two meals, one behind bars, and one right in front of you, doesn't incentivize anyone to get the meal behind the bars. If you cannot grasp this simple concept, then I'm afraid you may be too far gone from the realm of common sense.
>muh russian bots
It seems you're the one that can't read. The preview builds are compiled Git files.
It's too bad your analogy is trash because your meal IS behind the bars, it's just that you'll get it in front of you in two weeks OR you can take down the bars yourself.
>gibsmedat nigger still at it
I just realized you're probably too retarded to have even understood what preview builds are
Preview build =/= full release
The full build is released every other week on the blog for everyone at the same time. Preview builds (unfinished, buggy PREVIEWS of the final full update) are released to Patrons, and at the same time the github is updated so non-patrons can compile the preview for themselves.
Your dad should have either hit you less or way, way more.
>Preview build =/= full release
So what? How is that even the argument here?
I said it here:
>are released to Patrons
>and at the same time the github is updated so non-patrons can compile the preview for themselves.
Pushing towards Patreon in a scummy way.
Because you said Patrons get the full builds early, which they don't. I know you're too stupid to keep track of anything someone else says, but at least keep track of your own arguments, please.
And again, that's the opposite of pushing towards Patreon. Pushing towards Patreon would be barring the preview builds completely behind a paywall. Instead, you have the ability to get them for free. Seriously, why is it so difficult for you to understand this simple concept?
>Because you said Patrons get the full builds early
Yes, that was my bad, but my argument doesn't change.
>And again, that's the opposite of pushing towards Patreon.
No, that is what you do to push someone towards supporting you economically. It's called an incentive.
>Pushing towards Patreon would be barring the preview builds completely behind a paywall.
Somehow you're changing page and saying that the preview builds are so valuable (you said they're trashy, buggy versions and that they don't matter) that having them into the open changes the fact that their compilation is an incentive for you to pay on Patreon.
It's free to have a grave, but only if you dig it yourself, in the forest.
It doesn't matter if they're "valuable" or not, just to be sure you understand that.
>Seriously, why is it so difficult for you to understand this simple concept?
It is really simple, why is it so difficult to stop supporting practices like microtransactions, DLC, etc? Do you not understand ethical concerns?
How is giving you something for free instead of making you pay for it incentivizing paying? God damn, you're literally too stupid for me to handle. You're clearly too intent on being a whiny retard to ever understand any sort of actual logic or reason, so I'm done with you. You can keep being a fag here if you want, it'll just give everyone else more material to make fun of you with lol.
Can you guys just stfu and just see what happens and then make conclusions based on results?
Y'all talking about things that just derails this further and further.
One person >>114623 said this was
>a plain scam.
Can we just wait it out and just either call him our prophet if he's right or kick his ass if he's wrong?
And just leave the discussion about what AW is or is not and all other principles aside for now?
This is just pointless.
Nice post, AW dev
>How is giving you something for free instead of making you pay for it incentivizing paying?
How is giving you gacha coins for free instead of making you pay for them even if possible to do so incentivizing you to pay?
Ask that of the 90% of the users that are influenced by that and get to pay instead of waiting for the eventual freebies.
>You're clearly too intent on being a whiny retard to ever understand any sort of actual logic or reason, so I'm done with you.
It's clear you don't understand microtransactions.
>You can keep being a fag here if you want, it'll just give everyone else more material to make fun of you with lol.
Yeah, I'm done anyway. These redditors don't understand anything.
Well there goes any credibility you had left. Scumbag.
>I don't know how hgg can be so retarded sometimes. Somehow Lilith's Throne is OK because content somehow makes it acceptable that the author is baiting for Patreon cash.

Are you actually retarded? Re-read what you attempted to use as an argument, but slowly this time.
Baiting isn't used as a positive here. Re-read what I just said but slowly this time.
I was attempting to try to help them get over their cognitive dissonance about content and patreon whoring. It was still kind of bait, tbh, but hopefully they will have seen how monumentally retarded comparing LT to conventional patreon whores are and just fucking move one to a better argument.
wow this piece of shit is getting defended real hard, I should go donate to their patreon said no one ever.
Hello mister original, nice to see you here. Got any more inspiring one liners to amaze us with?
Most of it is probably the dev
What the living fuck is going on in this thread.
As far as I can tell, everyone hates each other.
This thread is an example of what comes from allowing people to market their 0.0.1 alpha patreon garbage here.
So then why not complain towards the mods, instead in the thread itself?
It seems very ironic to be upset about shameless marketing but then being the ones yourself to keep giving it attention by bumping the thread.
Thanks for the bump.
I'll save everyone the download:
>Wishful Thinking The "Game"
Because there's no fucking way that all those options are going to be functional. The closest game this is to is Cursed and that game is incomplete and has been in development for almost a decade.
Don't get me wrong the story so far was very good but having all those options is a clusterfuck, compare it to other games that do much less and release fewer updates– yeah this game ain't happening, regardless of how much money it gets.
>Thanks for the bump.
It was Sage'd, you dumb retard.
You're the one who's bumping, fool.
>he doesnt know how sage works
I jumped on the hyped train HARD but I'm having serious doubts. Dev spends a lot of time replying to people that leaves a comment. He tells in detail what the new store will have and this and such. I don't know…it's like he's setting himself up to false promises, you know?
I'm still in support of the guy but maybe he should speak with updates rather than comment replies and I know saying that makes me sound like an ungrateful cunt but I just want to burst my pants open and jerk off to the new content, whenever that may be.
Are you serious? The options were great, the retarded tranny story where the female friend turns out to be another pre-op tranny was abysmal. Can't we just have humans in porn games for once?
I don't think you do either.
Do people actually get off to these WORDS WORDS WORDS games? I find them erotic enough to hold my attention for a while, but when I want to finish, I have to go find some actual art.
Games like this are always a disappointment. I love the idea of character customization, but it will never be visually utilized. Sometimes, even the writing of the game forgets what you look like, so what's the point?
You're talking as if any of this is actually hard to do in the first place. The only issue is that authors tend to be fucking lazy and fish for money.
If they tended to their games, they wouldn't have any issue in using all those variables properly.
Writing scenes though, is something else entirely. While that's easy to do too, to also have something of quality there, well, there's the issue.
Yes, words, properly bound words, tend to stimulate the imagination.
Your entire market is at tfgames, anyone here who is looking to play Magical Tranny Sim 907 is also at tfgames.
>People already shitting on the game
Come back in a few months idiots, there is no content right now. FFS its 0.0.1. what do you expect?
My imagination is infinitely more arousing than oriental caricatures or 3d monstrosities.
>its 0.0.1. what do you expect?
Development ending in a few months, unless the patreon scam proves profitable, in which case the development will flunctuate between zero and barely non-zero effort.
Usually you'd expect them to announce at version 0.1.x at least instead of fucking 0.0.1
This, tbh. If I was going to make a game demo, I'd make something you could actually play before presenting it to you guys, let alone begging for shekels. The fact that there's already a Patreon when there's no more than character creation and a short intro suggests that the updates will drop to a trickle and he'll be milking his patrons for eternity. If the dev thoroughly BTFOs this post, good on him but I won't hold my breath and this trend of releasing half-assed alphas and proofs of concept has got to stop regardless.
>there is no content right now
That's the point
>the only thing you can do is spend 10 minutes creating your perfect waifu only to be broadsided by a "THAT'S ALL THE CONTENT FOR NOW FOLKS" message
Well that's not fucking content is it now, you little shit.
Thanks for the $600, goyim
This game is awful, but…
>imagine having an imagination so shitty it isn't better than random pictures
Learn the value of words, anon.
words are so much better then pictures.
I just hope you can have custom NPCs, that the real strong point of Newlife.
So is there actual content now or is it still just the character creator?
There has been no update since this thread was made.
but he just posted an update on his page?
>Version 0.01.9 will be released for Patreon supporters today as promised. (A bug-fix revision will be released to the public in a few days.) I'm finishing up a few odds and ends, tracking down a few issues with the clothing generators, and doing some testing to hopefully prevent as many bugs as possible from making it into the release. It'll probably be out in the late afternoon (Eastern Time)!
doesn't sound like a content update.
Since there's not much content in the game, may as well wait a few months before checking again.
>doesn't sound like a content update.
Actually, it could be, would have to wait a few days before it can be checked (unless someone here is actually a patreon and dumps it early).
That's an insane character creation. Even if this was a full team working full-time, there's no way this would be anywhere near playable within a decade.
Now this is bullshit.
just character creator
There was 1 update that changed the creator around a bit, unknown whats happening with update today in terms of what it's doing
Let's just talk personality traits. There are 18 traits with 3 distinct values; that's 3^18, or 387420489 possible combinations. That's not accounting for the physical factors of both the PC and the NPC(s) in a given scene. Even if you assume only 1/100 of the combinations matter for a given scene, that's 3^18/100 or 3874204 possible permutations. You need to develop code to automatically handle, say, 90% of those, which is going to be a massive undertaking; then you need to hand-write or hand-code the remaining 387420 combinations.
Even if you assume it's more like 1/10000 of the possible combinations, that's still 387420 and 3874 respectively. If you think that's going to be done any time in the next decade, you're a madman.
>update with no content
>still locks it behind Patreon wall
How is this guy different from Cuckhold Ostrich exactly?
The issue wasn't "no content" with Cuckhold Ostrich, but "nothing disguised as updates", which included "no content", but I doubt anyone would have had any issue if say, he put in a whole month meaningfully working on everything else related to development.
Who knows what this author will do, but considering the start, they're doing more than Newlife already.
Version 01.9 will be on Patreon for supporters momentarily, and a public version will be released in a few days with any bugs ironed out.
01.9 Change Log:
>Added the Bullseye map to the game, along with the prototype map control module and navigation method.
>When you reach Bullseye, click on different locations on the map to travel to the place you clicked.
>Added descriptions to Bullseye map locations, room view, and some story hooks. Locations will look a little bland until the descriptive widgets are build.
>Several bug fixes. (Including reworking several objects/arrays, age/height thresholds, and an issue with libido.)
>Updated the Debug Page, which now has a java-based bug reporting tool and variable checker. The bug report tool generates a report for you, making it easier.
>Implemented a game settings menu: changed content restriction settings to be toggled from that menu instead of being set once near the start of the game. Should allow more control for players in the future.
>Added the Clothing Generators, including adding them to the Bulleye women's clothing department.
>Created a clothing demo available from the game's main page, that shows off some clothes and explains a bit about how they work.
They got your money to throw away. The government gives it to them for being fucked up in the head.
Can't really blame a government for being fucked up in the head. That's like blaming cats for being curious.
Oh… you meant the furfags?
>pre-op tranny was abysmal
that bit went completely over my head, so that was the whole "condition" crap she was on about. Wow fuck this shit, at least Cursed was all about a slutty witch ruining your life. Like yeah the character creator was cool but I know for a fact that there's no way you're going to be checking all of those variables during an attribute check, its why most games only focus on a handful of attributes because its easier to manage in the attribute check.
Mmm I don't think you have to put up all the conditions on every single part of an event. You can have a hundred attributes and still pull it off if you manage to apply those attributes to events when it matters.
You don't have to show every single sentence how much you like how tall he is while he's pounding you. You don't have to think to yourself how much you'd like to impregnate someone while having a discussion at lunch in school. You don't have to let the teacher know how much of a nasty person you are while he's teaching class.
If you want to do it right you're probably better off with minor and major attributes (A character's personality being a major attribute while liking to wear heels a minor one for example)
You don't have to think of >>115353's 3^18 possible combination for every time you walk down a hallway.
the fuck my dude?
Thanks for the $600
>No real content; just clothes you won't be wearing and a map you won't have the opportunity to use
>No mention of actually saving your character creation values
Sounds like a whole lot of fucking nothing.
New version, not a lot of major changes but some possibility that it may turn out decent
Any content or just more customization?
Intro shopping area and clothing generator
More info from his blog for the next stuff
I'm going to do a little review on the map system code, and tidying up the open portion of the shopping code. If I catch any bugs, I'll fix them. I haven't gotten any bug reports thus far, so I should be able to put out the public release of 01.9 earlier than I expected.
Next Few Days:
My emergency trip to Ohio is coming to a close, and it's time to get back home and on a more normal schedule. I'm leaving ridiculously early Friday morning, and will be arriving Saturday night. (After accounting for different time zones, it's a 32-hour trip.) This basically means a huge chunk of time with nothing else to do but work on Accidental Woman.
My main focus for the next few days will be putting together a style guide for clothing, creating the FAQ/Content document, and writing the rest of the morning dialogue with Lily. I think it's worth working on these rather than diving immediately back into coding. I think a style guide is important, because it allows players to imagine or picture what a clothing item looks like in their head. For a descriptive game like this one, mental imagery is critical.
The FAQ/Content document is important for a few reasons. First, there are a lot of questions about content. I want to write out the list of content that a) I will definitely add, b) that I want to add if time allows, and c) I can't add myself. For the game in general, I'm starting to see more "repeat" questions. I took some time answering early questions, because I figured I could add the answers to this planned FAQ, which would be useful for everyone. I don't have time to answer repeat questions, or write an entire answer for slightly more specific or slightly different answers. By putting the FAQ together, I can focus more on the game without feeling like I'm ignoring anyone, and I'll be able to give briefer answers to more specific questions by referring to the FAQ. (And add the answers to the FAQ.) I have plans written out for AW, so it makes answering questions easy, but it still takes time to type the answers.
I'll start working on code again, finish the shopping and wardrobe system, and then do some of the prologue writing with Lily and your tour of Appletree. It's a crazy place, so I'm kind of excited to set the scene.
nothing new to talk about t b h, bump the thread when he's got that new FAQ/Content doc up
You mean the partially translated autistic mess with all the playability and narrative appeal of DF?
I wouldn't call that "finished", nor would I call it good.
That depends on how detailed you want your descriptions. If you want Zork or Nethack style "narration", then you're absolutely correct.
However, if you want to narrate an actual person, that includes what they think about, daydream about, what they see or don't see, notice or don't notice - no, not every scene is going to hinge on every variable, but if we're being honest with ourselves, here, the vast majority of the scenes that actually interest people are going to be sexual, where those factors come a lot more into play.
You can ignore a lot of them, at the cost of narrative depth, but then what's the point of having them? My point is that you can't make all of those variables actually matter without the cost becoming untenable. The alternative, of course, is to make the descriptions, actions, and so forth all relatively generic, but then the game's either going to be a bunch of generic scenes that feel the same regardless of your character, or you'll be locked out of 90% of the content because you don't fit the criteria. There are lots of wrinkles and special cases depending on very particular combinations of characteristics. You can ignore them, but that makes RPing as that particular character bland and unfulfilling.
I frankly think AW is either a cynical attempt to divert support away from SO without any real intent of delivering a better game, or a very naive programmer is about to bite off way more than he can chew. Either way, the odds of this living up to the promise are about the same as the odds of No Man's Sky being patched into something worth buying.
>poorfags are mad because someone else is making profit out of a porn game
this is sad yet so funny..
die broke ass niggas DIEEEE!!1
<>>poorfags are mad because someone else is making profit out of a porn game
People are mad that he's making money without there being any actual game
>not an example of a ton of variables exceeding this and used properly too
Why don't you stop pushing this false narrative of "This needs decades because of variables" already? There's nothing believable about it.
If you really think what he did took no effort at all, make your own game then. Free money am i right?
Except it isn't, I'm currently waiting forward new content, this is no the first project that starts from zero nor will be the last, stop hating fam
Most projects that "start from zero" don't ask for money before there's any actual game.
And, for the record, I am making a game in the same program he's using, and yeah, a few checkboxes isn't that much work.
Hgg anons should be patreon whores too. It's not like they're not a bunch of assholes anyway.
I've played Era. It's tedious as all fuck even by /hgg/ standards.
The playerbase is tiny for a reason; even if they're a vocal minority, they're still a minority.
Hate it as you may, very few people enjoy ASCII graphics and partially translated UIs combined with a nauseatingly complicated (yet, somehow, still uninteresting) gameplay model.
Unlike most people here, and you, I'm going to bet, I've actually written complex software that uses zillions of variables in combination with one another; I know precisely how hard it is to deliver something like this, even with autogeneration, automation, and other labour-saving techniques. Literally every game that tries to do something this complex either turns out to be a scam, bogs down in development hell, or is so shallow that nobody actually enjoys it. Give me one example that isn't the h-strat-game version of Dwarf Fortress, that has tried anything this complex, and isn't dead, gone, or a total clusterfuck.
And to be honest, the fact that they're patreon-fagging before they even have gameplay pretty much proves this guy's intentions beyond the shadow of a doubt. Compare to FCDev, or Innoxia, who both (IIRC) created a Patreon specifically because they were asked to by the players, after the players decided they liked the games in question. AW, as it exists now, would probably take me an hour at most to put together. Thinking of the stats would take longer than programming the damned thing.
Until there is at least one scene that is written to account for a significant portion of the options the player is presented with, comprehensively, this is fucking vapourware and you're a fool for trying to excuse it as anything but.
>I've played Era. It's tedious as all fuck even by /hgg/ standards.
So how is it tedious?
>The playerbase is tiny for a reason; even if they're a vocal minority, they're still a minority.
How is the second or third most popular thread on these boards a "vocal minority"?
>Hate it as you may, very few people enjoy ASCII graphics
>and partially translated UIs
Wrong, completely translated, you mean.
>combined with a nauseatingly complicated (yet, somehow, still uninteresting) gameplay model.
I disagree, not only are you retarded for even thinking for a second that Era games are in any way complicated (complex =/= complicated), you're also retarded for trying to tell me that a more complex, complete sex training coupled with proper dialogue is somehow worse than the very popular Free Cities.
>Unlike most people here, and you, I'm going to bet, I've actually written complex software
>"I literally have no idea what I'm talking about"
> Give me one example that isn't the h-strat-game version of Dwarf Fortress
>"Don't give me any good example, that would ruin my non-existent argument."
> and isn't dead, gone, or a total clusterfuck.
I can give you about 5 examples of Era games, maybe more, really, that are still in development and have enough content.
The rest is totally irrelevant to me, I'm just correcting you about your inane ramblings, I assure you no one cares about how lazy you are as a coder and how much you are projecting your insecurities upon others.
>nauseatingly complicated (yet, somehow, still uninteresting) gameplay model.
Coding doesn't mean shit, we are not here to jack off to your fucking if/else chains, we're here for the fucking content, gosh this nerd is pathetic
Fuck me thats funny man, gg.
muh instant gratification
>this random patreon scammer is going to make a twine era game, just give him more shekels to perfect his checkbox design
Pretending to be a retarded shill is a sin.
No one asked you to give this author any money, just attention and criticism since they also have a blog.
Cont. That is if you want to have a better Newlife with a developer that does something.
This is necessary effort.
Not an argument, also, wrong.
Interesting, but it's too ambitious. So many options and there's no content yet
Not a pre-op tranny sine she got a pussy. That means she is a hermaphrodite or if you prefer a futanari often shortened to futa.
Screenshots aren't difficult to manipulate.
>screenshots aren't difficult to manipulate
>it's obviously a fake because the (You's) aren't even aligned
And maybe kill yourself.
If its well written enough it can be better than a shitload of visual stuff.
>OKAY: snuff, canibalism, pedoshit, rape, violence, torture, scat, etc. etc.
Fuck, i'm not one for playing with poo poo but if there's maybe watersports eventually in some form then aww yiis!
Speaking of snuff/violence too, am i the only one who hopes these games would one day be serious and realistic enough to include permanent injuries be they lost leg, tooth, eye or simply one that should be a standard in these games by now that is permanently stretched orifices?
Rustles my jimmies how pretty much every game from Fenoxo's shit to Girl Life etc magically after a certain time turn your holes back to tight. Somedays i just want to play a whore who got her holes ruined to the point se has to wear a diaper and go for the more extreme ends to satisfy her clients.
Shit… i need help…
>Somedays i just want to play a whore who got her holes ruined to the point se has to wear a diaper and go for the more extreme ends to satisfy her clients.
The odds of that happening are so low, you're probably better off making your own game.
powerful autism here, anon
If there's a way to separate the peeing from the pooing then I'm totally okay with this, I'll just disable the pooing.
Do also note that he wont be writing all that himself but if somone writes it he isn't against implementing it, just to keep expectations properly managed.
Genius. Make a "game" with checkboxes and earn money by implementing other people's work.
Kind of sounds like how cucknoxo does things these days. Except Thaum doesn't have to get them on a payroll. Pure genius.
>WHY WON'T SO INCLUDE CONTENT FROM FANS
>WHY IS AWDEV INCLUDING CONTENT FROM FANS
SO produces content, but very slowly
SO has produced at least the vast majority of Newlife
AWDEV has pretty much NOTHING except for checkboxes
>actually defends SO in any capacity
>le ruined holes meme
>complains about unrealism
I humbly suggest you taste-test a 12-gauge.
<can't decide if this is one extremely angry autist sockpuppeting, or more than one very angry autist circlejerking ire in a thread about a vapourware "game"
Vast majority of Newlife isn't much, mate.
You're too much of a moron to understand the issues at hand if you can defend SO in any capacity.
And they spent royghly the same amount of time on their respective games I take it or that just isn't anything to take into consideration?
No the checkboxes aren't tied to the things he isn't intending to write himself, the list of content he is willing to put into the game extends beyuond what the current checkboxes check for. There will likly be more checkboxes in the future if other people are willing to write for the game.
This isn't anything new there is a reason why it's said you can't please everyone.
What I Worked On:
On the long flight back home I mostly worked on coding with a bit of story content. Limited/irregular internet access makes the clothing style guide too cumbersome/slow to work on. I finished the morning scene with Lily, and coded in the actual purchasing system into the Bullseye map control. Still a couple kinks to work out, but it's functional for the most part. (It also correctly sends purchased clothes to the wardrobe arrays.) At some point over the Pacific Ocean, I caught myself coding part of the weather generator for some reason… I think because it connects with the map system and I was tired.
What I Will Be Working On:
I'm going to work on the clothing style guide, finish the purchasing system, work on the large amount of dialogue for Tuesday evening, and get started on the wardrobe system so that you can actually wear the clothes that you buy at Bullseye. I also want to add in some of the customization options available at the salon.
I'll probably put out a new version for supporters sometime during the week when there's enough visible/playable to warrant it. The next "big" release will be when I have all the above done, which will probably be right around the 3rd of September, but it's harder to plan exact times with story content and wardrobe system I'll be working on.
straight waist? so a normal waist?
Sounds more like being shaped like a fridge.
>fucking up sage
Shoo shoo 10 buck cuck.
Why are people who don't know how to sage allowed to post
I mean, it's cool and all that he's working his ass off on making content (sure hope that next update will show it) but the Thaumx sure loves to talk about the planned features.
Why not be like Trap Quest dev where Aika explains what the new game mechanic does in the patch notes for that release? AW dev is just talking about his plans and as a day 1 fan this is starting to irritate me a bit.
Thaum, I know you lurk here. Don't take it the wrong way but maybe talk less and speak with actions?
And yes, I know I sound like a total cuntbag that's entitled to a free game. Sorry.
How else is he going to get his Patreonbux
What're you on about?
>he's working his ass off on making content
>as a day 1 fan
>please let me suck your dick, dev
No wonder these scams always work.
>game is NewLife but in HTML and not java
>only thing it has is a better UI and an option to fuck the scientist
lmao recycling /weg/s that aren't even complete is what people do now for patreon money?
Guy almost lost his brother in a car accident, still worked on the game. If you want to be a prick about it you better have a shit-eating grin on your face while doing it.
fuck him and his broke-ass no health insurance brother, nigga
"bro, you gotta pay for my medical expenses!"
"I'll do that by stealing another person's porn game, and passing it off as my own!"
<you can't criticize him because his brother supposedly crashed his car
>implying it wasn't like that from day one.
Fuck off Newshitters
I'm quite sure the man rode a motorcycle without a helmet. Guess it's Gods way to purge us from stupidity.
It'd be pretty good if there was some actual gameplay. As it is the guy is basically shilling money for a tech demo
This is better than the shit SO puts out already. This format should be very easy to mod too.
From what I understand, theres suppose to be a huge update coming out in sept. Hopefully, it will actually have game content to play.
Are you sure his brother isn't gonna survive a plane crash in sept, allegedly?
Some of these Patreon devs can be on their death bed for 6 months, then Abracadabra, they're completely cured.
the fact that he has stated that he is okay with basically any content from loli to necrophilia as long as it fits the scenario is encouraging in g too. few things are as cringe worthy as a sex game developer acting sanctimonious about other peoples fetishes *cough*SO*cough*fcdev*cough*
Given that this is made using the same sort of engine as Freecities, modding it should be relatively simple. SO is a cocksucker. Says he's going to make it so people can add scenes, but only if he vets them. So nothing too icky, the cunt didn't even want to add anal. Imagine this if a community akin to freecities pops up around it. SO will be crying into his latte over it.
So do this have any content at all, or is it just character creation and some world building for now?
So far, just CC and such as you guessed it. Considering what you can do with the CC, it could turn out to be a pretty solid game. Sadly, there was nothing to do yet beyond that last I checked (about a version back). Guess we'll have to wait and see…and hope.
Just CC and 1200$ patreon bux a month now, dev very successfully shilled it into a startup, hope he actually delivers.
What the fuck this is real
It was at $600 last I checked
Where the fuck is this money coming from, who the fuck are these idiots shelling out money for fucking nothing, what the fuck
So someone took the source code of the Free Cities slaves creation and then added a few more radio buttons and they're making over $1000 per month for this?
How the fuck are people THIS stupid?
Patreon users == Complete Utter Idiots 99.99% of the time
At this point it would be temping to sell panacea there, made with dragon piss and manticore shit, pretty sure it would sell
I dunno but I seriously need to consider porn games because holyshit I'd be rolling in bank if I did.
He's angling well for the lifesim audience who are stuck with Newlife being in development hell and Girl Life being a buggy mess badly translated from Russian.
A dev delivering would make at least as much as Newlife (6k/month) but $1200/month for literal fucking check boxes is enough for someone to simply string people along for a while.
It's not just me, this is basically the same thing, right?
There are no other checkboxes you can have in these type of games, so yes.
No, AW has the same amount of point to the checkboxes as those static "CYOA" wishfulfilment images /tg/ likes to make have. Though this scam has the implication that those "choices" will mean something if the dev gets enough patreon shekels.
They're both made in Twine and feature a lot of checkboxes
Why would someone write this.
a normal waist then ?
>I don't know what you're talking about it's standard for games to have these types of checkboxes.
They are literally using the exact same categories and wording. If the FreeCities dev decided to attempt to sue the creator and had the code for the game audited I can bet you the creator straight up stole it.
why the fuck is this thread still being bumped? There's literally no content to discuss.
>There's literally no content to discuss.
Then you should've complained that the thread was even made.
You can look at the code yourself, Twine can't be obfuscated AFAIK. But without even looking at the code, it's pretty easy to see it wasn't copied. Most of the stuff isn't even the same. And just about everything in FC uses textinput, but AW only has checkboxes/radiobuttons. Also AW has a lot more CSS work, which itself shows he's at least somewhat competent at coding, probably to the point he wouldn't need to steal someone else's code to make checkboxes.
They don't even use "the same exact categories and wording". These are just common descriptors for body customization in games like this.
And by the way, yes, it's standard for games made in Twine to look similar.
Well, comparing this to Free Cities, I'm hoping AW is going to be, you know…good.
this patreon shill thread is fucking hilarious

Skill checks are one way that a players skills are used. Rather than simple thresholds, however, I've taken inspiration from tabletop RPGs to use a combination of randomness and the character's skill. The bonus you receive from your skill points on checks is a flat progression up to 100 points (meaning going from 80 to 90 gives the same benefit as going from 10 to 20). Above 100 skill points the player receives diminishing returns up to 200 points. The randomness comes in the form of a weighted RNG. Truly random RNGs are kind of crappy, because you're just as likely to get any result. This doesn't work well for skill checks, where an average result should be more common
>So, let's talk about content for a minute. I've seen a few posts (mostly 8ch) complaining that AW only has character creation, essentially just a bunch of check-boxes. It's true that the prologue of the game isn't finished yet, but it isn't really true that there's no content.
tbh m8 people just want someone who fucking delivers
Pretty much, if you post updates regularly with content that actually does look like you've worked on (Not SO's monthly, "fixed one bug that no one knew about") it for the duration of the wait, you're good to go.
Since you do look on 8ch, I think people do understand that your game isn't completely devoid of content, but you just laid down 20k words and you're barely at the prologue, that means your pace is slow, and it usually should be that way for these type of games, if I'm at a masturbation scene for a whole novel, that is "no content" if I'm looking for porn.
Since the PC will never be able to be a futa can you at least add futas other than the one NPC that will probably only have like three scenes
>Check the new version
>Didn't fix the way height was calculated
Just compare this (in game):
<<set $PCheight = Math.round($PCheight)>>
<<if $PCheight < 60>>
<<set $PCheightInch = $PCheight - 48>>
<<set $PCheightFoot = 4>>
<<set $PCheightCM = ($PCheightInch * 2.5) + 122>>
<<elseif $PCheight < 72>>
<<set $PCheightInch = $PCheight - 60>>
<<set $PCheightFoot = 5>>
<<set $PCheightCM = ($PCheightInch * 2.5) + 152>>
<<elseif $PCheight < 84>>
<<set $PCheightInch = $PCheight - 72>>
<<set $PCheightFoot = 6>>
<<set $PCheightCM = ($PCheightInch * 2.5) + 183>>
<<set $PCheightInch = 0>>
<<set $PCheightFoot = 7>>
<<set $PCheightCM = 213>>
To this (my fix):
4 lines vs. 17 lines. If you're gonna take feedback from us, then please consider consider suggestions to fix code. Also why did $PC.height change to $PCheight?
At least the values can be saved now.
Thanks. That's actually in the arousal function, which is sort-of the one-stop place for +/- arousal, so that you don't have to check how 15 things affect arousal gain each time you do it. Trying to keep it simple for people for when I open up the git. It seems like I screwed up the alert function (pop up box) that warns the player when they're getting dangerously aroused. (gotta have mindbreak…)
You're right. My height code is fucktarded. I was going to make a function to replace that shit that I did in Thailand somewhere, and when people were asking about max/mins I didn't bother. I wanna allow growth/shrinking so was just gonna do it all at the same time.
>>suggestions to fix code
Thanks for the code, I'll replace it now. I haven't actually had time to read all the posts, especially the earlier ones
>>why did $PC.height change to $PCheight?
>I wanna allow growth/shrinking so was just gonna do it all at the same time.
>I haven't actually had time to read all the posts, especially the earlier ones
>Sugarcube 2 saves a max of 100 object properties. PC has 130-something right now.
I've never used Sugarcube 2 before. Didn't know it had that sort of limitation.
There is a reason Free Cities moved out of twine; other than just ease of modding, that is.
To follow up, pregmod has somewhere around 238 variables assigned to the slave object without any problems. Why it works there and not here, your guess is as good as mine. There may be a sugarcube setting you can change for it.
Why don't you try and get in touch with FCdev for some advice? I'm sure that if you won't ask him to make your game for you he won't tell you to fuck off.
It's solvable, FC/PregMod have done it. I need to switch tweego for compiling, and poke around in their gits a bit to see what they did. For whatever reason, SC 2.18 would stop saving after 100, even tried making a blank game that essentially did nothing but load up an object, still failed. probably a stupid count limit.
I've basically done all my writing in the same way. FC/PregMod is what convinced me it was worth trying the format. I have been considering using unity (via cradle) to do some not-twine things, but not anytime soon if at all.
Probably a good idea, though I think I'd rather ask the pregmod guys
>all the clothing and underwear options don't have catalog pictures in game
I certainly love having to google search for an hour just to get a gist of what these things look like.
Which is why there's a style guide with pictures in the game. (admittedly not finished for the more obvious stuff)
This movie would've sucked so much less had this been an actual image from it.
I wish the faggot would just go for more simpler clothing choices. No need to have shit like:
>lycra open-paneled micro G-string (red)
>satin convertable contour bra (pastel-yellow)
etc, just have it G-string, Contour Bra, Sports brah~ etc… even bondage/fetish gear if he implements such doesnt need to be more than "Bondage/Body Harness" etc, no need for all that mostly useless information for fuck sakes!
I agree. Right now it's like he wanted to make his own version of Newlife and started by expanding on the only things Newlife already has too much of.
I don't understand the priority system these guys have in their brains. Hey lets make fifteen dozen clothes so you can walk around in them going from your home to the street.
Meanwhile, nothing at home, nothing on the street. But at least you show off your AMAZING clothes to no one in an empty world.
Hey, right priorities, right?
Yeah, like you said about Newlife i really fear once he finally starts putting on scenes and actual fucking gameplay it'l suffer the same treatment NL and even GL which also has shit-ton of useless shit in the form of clothes where the events/scenes itself are very lackluster in info making every scene feel the same.
Or just turn the clothing detail setting down…
>lycra open-paneled micro G-string (red)
>micro G-string (red)
The problem (for the most part) isn't that the clothing system is too detailed, it's the fact that it got priority over adding actual content
Real content takes effort to implement and doesn't signal endless variety for patreon shekel milking.
You people do know the saner thing to do is give people the benefit of the doubt, not immediately kill their projects on arrival.
If meanies on 8chan can kill your project then it wasn't gonna live in the first place.
I don't think you understand figures of speech, my little retarded friend.
Sometimes its just better to let things die if the initial response of your core audience is overwhelmingly negative.
>You mean a lone dev won't be able to make the fuckload of options in the character creation screen actually meaningful beyond generic stat bonuses? Stop the presses!
The core audience clearly is happy, as the patreon is thriving.
He shouldnt try to make it seem like they will be, then
The 'core audience' is Patreon gulls who are desperate to rid themselves of every cent.
Have of you guys played/got the update? Is it any good?
New public version is out. Unsure what's new but from the start you can pick the level of detail of the clothing. GOOD. I thought the earlier version was too descriptive. Having like 30 types of tissue. This is much better, so fucking stoked!
>patreon shekel milking.
>Lilith's Throne, a game that gets updated weekly and, despite being in early alpha, already has more content than Newlife
>Accidental Woman, a bunch of checkboxes and a random clothing generator made in Twine
What the fuck
Probably has to do with exposure. And a lot of people really fucking hate furry content.
Hispanic is not a race. Dumb burger developer.
The disgrace to human race, that was Breeding Season, says otherwise.
Furry faggots, the degenerates that masturbate to a dog fucking another dog, are for some reason wealthy, they are the reason why so many questionable patreon trash gets funded.
Afterall, being rich usually comes at the cost of low intelligence, being a retard or an autistic faggot. You don't ever remember rich people, you remember poor geniuses.
Stay angry faggot.
Most people from North America use "hispanic" interchangeably with "latino," but "hispanic" is gender-neutral so it gets used more when you can get sued for having the wrong letter at the end of latin*
>being rich usually comes at the cost of low intelligence
>You don't ever remember rich people, you remember poor geniuses.
Two of the most autistic things I've ever read on this board. And that's saying a lot.
Does this "game" have any content yet, or are we still waiting?
"Waiting" implies a chance of eventual occurence.
Masturbation is serious business.
lol if you think this is ever going to be anything more than smoke and mirrors while the dev generates patreon cash with his farts.
How many releases do you think it will take before we get out of the intro?
Leave it for a few years and come back. Hopefully by then he's written up an option where you can be Lily's live-in cumdump
who actually donates to this?
how braindead do you need to be to donate to a 'game' that isn't even a shell of something that represents a game
this guy is trying to collect funds and all that he's released is essentially half of chapter 1 of a book.
People with combination of irrepressible fetishes, excess autism bucks, poor understanding of basic software development and scraps of futile belief in the inherent decency of mankind.
hurr durr why donate
to a NEW project
with promising features??????
its almost like..
people put money in things they want
devs are wasting their time catering to idiots like you in a shit community like this, who will end up pirating and fapping to the games they whine endlessly about anyways
I want catgirls to be real. Just because I give money to some guy who claims he can make that happen doesn't mean he can or will make that happen.
It's one thing to say "This can't be done." and another to say "This can't be done by this person.", you're conflating the two.
I never understood posts like this. What's your goal? To "convince" people to not donate? Newsflash, there's probably a small percent of donators here as most posts are dissing the dude about his Patreon. You do know there's a free public version. Anyone who donate are sweetening the deal for us freeloaders.
Even if you somehow "enlightened" us on what you deem stupid we'd be stuck catering to Newlife and the cycle starts all over again. Hell, the Newlife train has been going on for too long and this train looks like a better ride.
So fuck off kindly.
I hope this shilling is ironic.
Honestly, after I saw some faggot shilling Towergirls here.
I doubt it.
He's not wrong though. It's either this or Newlife, and you still don't have to pay to his Patreon.
Pretending there is a dichotomy worth consideration between donating for absolutely nothing and donating for nearly nothing is retarded shilling that just legitimizes this money grubbing scam.
Are you retarded? I never said that this is worth paying for, I said you don't have to pay for it and that it's better to follow this than Newlife.
It's also retarded to claim that because something is in early stage, that it can't get meaningful updates or that it's impossible that it will become a good game. This attitude doesn't help in any way and it never did.
You still continue to maintain the statement that donations to this scam are potentially beneficial, i.e you continue to legitimize it, shill.
>I never said that this is worth paying for
You can't read for shit, you dumb nigger.
The updates will come even without money, if they don't come, there's that.
Haha poor people fighting and clutching desperately to their cup-o-noodle money while trying to masturbate is hilarious
>Anyone who donate are sweetening the deal for us freeloaders
In plain language:
>donations are not for nothing

It's okay, we got BARS to go with our checkboxes now!
The content is really heating up!
Real talk though, if we wanted to make a non-shit newlife/Accidental Woman, wouldn't C# be pretty good for it? I feel like the only plus for java and html is cross-compatibility but they're both pretty garbage.

For a text-based game, you can use virtually any coding language. The "best" one would be the one you are already most familiar with or one that already has a pretty good engine that you can work with right away (godot for example)
Really, it's not like you're going to calculate rocket physics. /care on programming language.

Don't forget his brother also got into an accident. Next month we'll have a lunar alignment that causes him to be restless and the week after that there'll be a tiger chasing him all month.
Is this taxable income.
I'm pretty sure, yes
Well, that was bound to happen. Can't say I'm surprised that those dipshits who fund him will learn, but maybe in 10-15 years he'll make half of the game.
It really is completely insane. I have been following Lillith's Throne for a couple months now and it has some serious potential. Innoxia also posts multiple updates per week and so far has delivered a new version weekly.
This dev has done nothing except a character creator so far and he's already making sick excuses. So how the hell is he making more money? I really don't understand. Is it the genre? The supposed story this game will have? Because so far this game streamlines you far more and Lillith's offers far more variety, so in terms of fetishes Lillith's comes out on top by far. This game has made literally zero progress since the patreon.
Is it just a matter of being a better shill? Begging on more websites, promoting more? I feel like I'm about to have a stroke from all of this retardation.
Selective memory. Innoxia has missed a couple of content updates/hotfixes and got plenty of you "here we go" types bitching about it in response. The games also appeal to different niches, if you can grasp that concept. LT appeals to people who are in to corruption, transformation, fantasy, demons, furries, etc. a la CoC. AW appeals to people who are more in to modern-ish, realistic-ish stuff like GirlLife and NewLife. LT hasn't settled fully on mechanics and gameplay yet (the whole sex system, and dominance/submission were basically reworked because fuck it in the middle of development) and Innoxia dumps content instead of working on mechanics sometimes just to appease you lot, whereas AW's dev is working from the back-end up and isn't going to be content-heavy til the framework is done. It's different, but that doesn't make it better or worse. If that's going to give you a stroke, you should rethink your masturbation habits.
When do we get a game like this without trannies and furries?
>Het guise, a rock from space feel down and hit my cat now I am depressed. I was thinking of just sitting on my ass, drinking covfefe and counting my Patrreon shekels but that sounds too much like actual work.

Shows a picture of a store, and 1 sentence.
Next month again, but instead of a picture of a store and a sentence, you get colored bars.

Haha damn, y'all act like you don't know there are people who actually go outside and have lives that don't revolve around lurking on the internet and begging for free shit to masturbate to.
Look at those timestamps. It's literally all that person had to do all day long.
Should I make a shitty patreon project and get free money? How much programming knowledge needed? Would I be in legal trouble for not producing anything?
It's obviously so easy, I don't see why you aren't doing it already.
P.S. nice samefag
I never post images, dingleberry
Now if you don't mind, I gotta shell out some more money for checkboxes and bars.
Literally if you're only going to hate GET THE FUCK OUT
Aren't there enough games you sickos can masturbate to? if you're going to moan for a project YOU ARE NOT actually funding because we all know you broke ass hoes can't afford 5 bucks out of your welfare check, get OUT no one wants you here, JUST LEAVE
Also if you really think this is a scam that requires no effort at all, why aren't you trying to mimic his work then?? Maybe it will finally get you out of your mom's basement and flavored ramen noodles diets, free patreon money amirite??
If it's bait you don't post le ebin fish b8 meme, you don't post at all and laugh at the retards who do fall for it.

>Game seems like it's about to hand control over to me
>whoops that's the end no content
time to set a reminder to check in on this in a year
I wouldn't bother. With as long as this has been "in development" at this point, the fact that there is still no content should say more than I'd ever need to.
For those that don't get it, there will never be any content. It is a scam.
>Due to an unfortunate accident, you find yourself completely transformed into a woman, and will have to deal with far more than just transitioning to small-town life!

>Not getting filled with cock now that it's straight
What are you, gay?
How long has it been in development? The earliest post on the blog I can see is August of this year. It hasn't even been two months. I'm used to update speeds that feel glacial because I read fanfiction. This is a text-based game, and he seems to have the bones working well enough, so I can't imagine it'd be stuck in development hell like some of the other shit I follow. I mean, I sure as fuck ain't gonna pay for it, but putting the RSS feed in my reader ain't much of an issue.
Also, I was kind of expecting there to be a futa option, rather than just straight M->F.
Do you even know how long I waited for a NEW open world game where you play as a female that actually had a lot of customization? I'm not giving up right now
literally the only other character in the game is a futa so I assume you'll be able to get a dick at some point
Dude already said you can't
I think he's afraid that the game could turn into Cursed
I think he's just a lazy faggot
So does this have good pregnancy?
No, pregnancy has yet to be implemented along with most other things.
After the game is finnished maybe as a kind of expansion but the futa was added for those who like that sort of thing since they should get something at least, since there is no current plans for the PC to be one. Though the dev hopes to be able to implement it.
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mBU6Er-_EJdWqbJJ1A0fmR2yAZ3TUSLwHPWnXt9pLSA/edit# there you can read the original statement rather then rely on my paraphrasing.
WTF tease me with all the fucking Character Creation options, Make my slut a baby producing goddess. NO FUCKING CONTENT AT ALL. Please Author you can put 5 fucking scene atleast then continue to develop the game. I saw this game since the beginning waited so there is something before I play. And absolutely nothing. I mean give us a taste at the content not a bazlillion character creation option that don't matter at all because there is 0 scene showing that you can even write sex scene. How can you even have a patreon?
You know what the best part is? It'll probably stay that way for God knows how long. The answer to the whole Patreon question is it's own answer…Patreon. Go figure, right?
It's both pathetic and sad because there are people doing honest work, delivering content twice a month. Sadly, the 5% that are serious about this get ruined by the other 95% just wanting to make money doing as little as possible.
Really bums me out that Patreon is getting such a bad reputation because of this. Because we all know that whenever we see a new dev with a new "version 0.1" game, our first assumption is that it's going to be just another barebones game with no content for a year. And most of the time we'd be correct in assuming that.
Got damn you people get sassy when you can't get off
It's not about getting off, there's other games to play. It's about the disgusting lack of ethics and the fact this faggot makes $3500/month from a game with 0 content.
I think it's funny that there exists people stupid and desperate enough to pay for nothing with the side dish of pretty promises.
And I think its funny when people vote for their governments, desperate enough to pay for nothing with the side dish of pretty promises.
But this isn't /pol/ so lets just stick to converse about the thread's topic.
< Look at those amazing checkboxes and bars. Such great improvements in 2 months time!
>comparing a government to some shitty patreon garbage that could be written in less then 3 days
scat is a fetish smh
I'm comparing the people.
>still just checkboxes
I wish I could that much money to sit on my ass and make bars
There's a sucker born every minute.
At this point, I'm beginning to think that parting fools from their money is a moral imperative, simply to prevent them from doing shit like this.
>any lewd so far?
Isn't lewd normally reserved for images only? Also it's been a patron "game" since the very beginning so what you think?
HOLY FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CAN WE PLEASE HAVE THIS AS A FREE OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE LINUX GAME PLEASE?!?!?!?!??
it would be really nice if it was just a folder with all the data pre-installed into it so you only had to download/unzip/click the right icon inside the folder to play. no installation needed.
Did your parents drop you or something? Its a twine game. Its an html file that can easily be edited with fucking notepad
He is retarded, but to be fair in this context the game isn't "free," as free refers to it having an open source license (it's currently gratis, anon is saying it should be libre).
Sure, you CAN edit it, but without a license explicitly saying you can, the game defaults to the original dev owning 100% of the code of the game and any derivative works.
But if we wanted to make a community edit nothing is really stopping us from doing so. I dont really see the problem with a base dev having a de jure ownership over a mod. As long as no one is planning on earning money from said mod, everything should be peachy.
I don't really have a problem with it either, but some people do.
It's the difference between the modding situation with some games of "wink and a nod, not officially approving of them but not taking them down" and something like Paradox's explicitly mod-friendly approach.
Also, base devs having de jure ownership over mods can be troublesome in some cases, e.g. the base dev is European and a modder decides to make a loli mod. Now that base dev can be arrested for CP because he legally has the rights to that loli mod.
Probably wouldn't get convicted for it, but it's a messy legal situation nonetheless.
Does this game have any content yet
He just updated the game with new flashy checkboxes
Its unlicensed if it is to be protected it needs to be licensed otherwise corporations wouldn't pay to license shit. Even the free licenses where you can modify and do whater the fuck you want prevents one thing and usualy contain the condition to include a certain text informing of the license, the thing they prevent you fom doing is claming that the product is yours and licensing it as such.
on second thought the engine is licensed and the work probably default to the engine license.
Why does this topic still exist?
Anon, you don't understand how this works. Licensing grants rights to other people. Without a license, the rightsholder (usually the creator) holds ALL rights.
Corporate licensing isn't even close to the same thing as open source licensing, but even then it has a similar concept. By default the rightsholder, in this case let's say Marvel, has all rights. A second company, let's say Netflix, approaches Marvel and asks for a license. This license would grant them certain rights, and because Netflix would be making money off of this deal, Marvel charges them.
Marvel, in granting this license to Netflix, forfeits some of the rights they previously held by granting them to Netflix.
By assigning a license you are in every single situation limiting your own rights and granting them to someone else.
Unless you live in some shithole that doesn't have intellectual property laws, I guess.
I mean, you're mostly right, but usually you have the right to revoke their access to it. The only time you're limiting yourself, is when the contract specifies exclusivity for the license holder. No one forfeits their rights when they let out a license unless they didn't read the contract.
Anyone else get Error notbranded occourred when visiting the site?
HAHAHAHA. Where are the people defending this from 2 months ago?
"But he just started developing the gaaaameeeee!"
I'm AT LEAST expecting a "But it's only been two months and TRUST ME, he's doing A LOT OF WORK behind the scenes!"
To be fair, it actually seems like he does decent progress. The backend work looks robust, and just look at his new website. He obviously cares about the project.
This is all just proof that he's very good at selling the game without actually delivering anything. And I'll give credit where credit's due, he's a very good conman. He updates things that make it "seem like he does decent progress" and makes lots of Patreon posts, but it's been months now and there's still nothing in terms of gameplay.
The whole project is very well designed. The way how the character "creator" alludes that the game will soon™ feature absolutely everyone's fetish without actually delivering anything (or direclty stating something that might finally bend the illusion to a breaking point) is clearly quite clever, even though I would have considered it too extensive, but I guess overestimating people is why I'm not a professional level conman.
Not to mention his versions numbers be 0.0X which is pretty much a promise of "MUCH MORE TO COME." He's gonna be milking this cow hard
I personally feel it doesn't make any sense. You see it absolutely everywhere on patreon: people making a lot of money doing nothing/not much.
If you're already at a level of making more money than a real life job, why not actually treat it like the golden egg that it is?
It stands to reason that if you actually show off good content and considerable updates to show you work 6-10 hours a day on it, you'll earn that much more.
The only real reason I can think of that the latter doesn't happen, is simply because the dev can't. That they don't have the creativity and inspiration to deliver. No matter what a lazy ass you are, if you can triple your income doing honest work, you probably would if you could, right?
>It stands to reason that if you actually show off good content and considerable updates to show you work 6-10 hours a day on it, you'll earn that much more
This is the problem in your line of thinking. People continue to pay them if they only work 6-10 hours a fortnight, so why would they ever bother working 6-10 hours a day?
Now we have checkboxes AND bars
I'm honestly getting more fun shitposting about this game then I ever did playing it
I simply assume that more content = more paying patreons.
I guess that IS the problem in my line of thinking?
Already having something doesn't incentivize doling out money, so actually providing a functional product would be counter-productive for this sort of continuous scam. What these scams need to do is to convince the paying audience that the content they want will appear eventually.
With Patreon, rather than people looking for games with content and supporting them, people will find games with content they like (or in this case, something that looks like it may have content they like in the future) and support those, regardless of output.
It's a monthly payment and typically fairly small, so most people would only remember it once a month when they notice the charge, so as long as there's ANY progress whatsoever by that time, most people are perfectly happy to continue burning through money.
The average pledge for an adult game creator on Patreon 3-8 bucks a month. I'd hardly call 5 dollars "burning through money" unless you work at a fucking Arby's in Dinklefuck, Alabama or your mom isn't letting you use her credit card.
>He obviously cares about the project.
he obviously cares about convincing retards to keep giving him money while putting in zero content is what you meant, right
is anyone interested for a link of the dev's discord?
He's only been developing for a couple of months and isn't working on the stuff that gets your special little penis off just for you. I get it, it's sad. But I have some faith. For one, he isn't listening to anyone around here in determining how he creates his game, which is always a good sign.
Looks like you put things in the wrong order. I've fixed it for you.
>But I have some faith. I get it, it's sad.
Hey, if that helps you sleep at night, that's fine. But at least I'm not on some image board whining about my lack of masturbation welfare.
Woah dude, now that's crossing the line.
Me neither, guess I win twice? Does that mean I get to sleep even better? Does that mean I win trice?
That's exactly my point, anon. It's a small enough amount that people don't think about it, thus they end up wasting a fair amount of money by paying $8/month for two years or something. And they rarely remember about it, so as long as the dev has ANY progress for those people checking once every month or two, the money keeps rolling in.
What do you even mean? He has literally nothing.
Well it's a stupid point and I've seen it made several times around here. The one anon who said he would be the savior of all gibmees was the epitome of that point, and where the fuck is that game? At any rate, I know how your point ends, in one of two ways: one, content never materializes. Money starts going away, dev gives up, anon says Yaaay I won the internet fight. Or two, content materializes, it's decent, and anon quietly backs out of the room and lurks until someone else starts working on a new game. See you then.
>Yaaay I won the internet fight
What? I was just explaining why that anon's way of thinking about this was inaccurate.
Why the fuck did you immediately go to tribalism?
>stop being so mean to the dev, he's giving a game* for free
>*content not yet available at the time
I hope he's the developer himself. At least he gets paid for bullshit.
Is it just me or did the guy's website 404?
Yeah, 404 for me too. Guess the scam's over.
No, not rly. His website is up and running just fine. He moved from blogspot to his own website last week and thats why the old link doesnt work anymore. The latest public update can be found on https://www.thaumx.com/blank-5
Latest blogpost is about him having a burnout.
God damn, coding checkboxes and bars is stressful!
How's work on your game coming?
They were being sarcastic.
Dev says in the blog post that his burnout may be from the increase in fan "support", and he really needs to work less.
Reading through the comments, I'd like to share my opinion about the game.
From what I'm seeing people are skeptical about the game and believe it might turn out to be a scam, which is a legitimate concern when you look at all the unfinished game with dev actively delaying their project to get the patreonbux.
I think it is normal to be upset when you look at all the lewd game that haven't delivered. So yeah, I totally understand people's frustration when they don't see progress on what is supposed to be a lewd game and yet there barely is any lewd content.
To me, it seems like the dev of AW is very ambitious and my main concern is him having eyes bigger than his stomach. Even if the game is finished I'm pretty sure it will feel underwhelming to the consumers because he won't have respected the features he planned to incorporate.
I recommend people to remain critical of the game's development. I treat lewd games like I treat early access stuff on steam. They always look nice on the paper and the prototype might have potential, but I always expect a finished product with a fixed price tag, because it's steam and they have power on the developers practices.
If the game follows what I desired in the first place, I will be happy to pay full price to help the developers. But I'm not throwing a penny for promises.
If an early access game is almost complete and already features all the content that I desire, I will pay before the game is finished because I'm already satisfied with the product. This is a very rare occurrence but it happens.
Conclusion / tl;dr
Sit back, wait and see what comes out of it. No need to throw rocks at it. Just don't be retarded and waste your cash on something that doesn't meet your expectation in in the first place. Promises means nothing.
As a continuation of this post and from what I gathered on the dev's discord, I believe he might be misguided on what he should prioritize in the development of his game.
Too much is put into the details and not enough is being made about what the game is about: lewd stuff.
Now I can understand that as a developer you need to build a solid frame in order to put all the good stuff in. But there is still not even a demo of what a sex scene would be like and at the same time the clothing system looks ridiculous in it's complexity.
I would have been thrilled if that was the case but for the lewd scene. Because that's a lewd game, not a clothing simulator.
I think the dev has his heart in the right place but he needs a wake up call from the people who cares about the game and tell him to start delivering on what people expect about accident women, hint: not a clothing simulator and certainly not a new newlife.
The growing scope is what concerns me. It's great to have features and whatnot, but unless they are associated with actual things to do with said feature. This especially goes with other things he has mentioned, he wants these things to be things you can ignore, which begs the question as to why to bother.
At least this isn't SimBro. They've put off work for damn near four months while operating on a monthly schedule.
This just sounds like an excuse, I don't think it is wise to minimize a game you care about by comparing it with something that did worse.
Well you know what? At least the new website looks pretty. Can any of your other smut games claim to have as perty of a blog? No, they can't. I bet they don't even host their own, its on blogspot or some shit. All other checkbox free games should bow their heads in shame.
But throwing rocks at it is the fun. Well, not at the game, but the retards that fall for the scam.
About what? That the most likely thing happens? Do you assume people get upset when the sun sets?
Kind of is. I respect the fact that they're not putting out a schedule per se because of the concept of underpromise, overdeliver, but it's off to a decent start.
Whether that actually goes anywhere is up for debate.
>come back after two months
>nothing new except pictures of clothes and some bars
>fucker has made 2.5k while playing sick
>everyone continues to fall for it
I just came here and didn't know about this game
Fuck you guys, i'm going to buy myself a better computer and make a half decent transformation daz3d renpy game with ntr and all those fetishes that seem to be sky rocking patreon donours to oblivion
It's too late, the bubble is bursting as patreon itself cracks down on porn devs. If you get in now, it'll be fully gone by the time you would be raking in any cash.
Maybe you can do it fast enough if you pay HentaiWriter to shill for you?
He didnt earn that much back when he called sick. And he wasnt down for a whole month either, so make that 500$.
Looks like you cheap niggers have to wait a little longer for your free shit
I don't think something that will never happen comes no matter how little you wait.
This game literally has no content, dawg. It won't ever exist. Anyone who's actually waiting is a fucking retard.
Ohhh right I forgot, this is hgg, where nothing ever happens. And if it does, it's too late. And if it isn't, it's not enough. Got it.
Two months and there has been zero content added to this game and the creator is already crying about being burnt out.
It's legit just a scam. Fuck off with your shilling.
Why do idiots always act like this is an argument? If someone offers me a slice of pizza and it's just literal sewage on top of cardboard, I don't need to bake my own pizza before saying that the one handed to me was terrible.
Anon, you don't seem to understand
THE DEVELOPER IS LITERALLY BEING PAID TO PRODUCE A GAME
HE IS NOT PRODUCING THIS GAME
This is why people are annoyed with him.
It's not a functional game either, there is no game to function. There is literally nothing. Are you completely fucking retarded?
What the actual fuck are you talking about?
HE QUITE LITERALLY IS NOT MAKING ANYTHING
THERE IS NO GAME
How the fuck can you say that he's producing a game when there quite literally is nothing whatsoever? What game? Point to it. Post screenshots.
Do fucking anything to prove that you're not just a mindless shitposter.
>THERE IS NO GAME =/= THERE WILL NEVER BE ANY GAME you fucking retard
Ah, so you admit that there is no game? Thanks, anon.
I don't find it necessary to read the rest of your idiotic drivel, at least you're willing to admit that you're incorrect.
I was on /dgg/ back when FC was just a concept in FCDev's mind, and I've been here since long before it was posted about here. One of my slaves is even a preset from way back when those weren't horribly broken. Or are they fixed finally? I haven't looked at the game in a while.
By your own admission, Accidental Woman quite literally is not a game. It has no content, no gameplay, no functions. Nothing that could be described by even an idiot as a game. As such, there is no reason to discuss it.
Free Cities, on the other hand, 1.) Was made by an anon, unlike this piece of shit, 2.) wasn't fucking charging money for its nonexistence, and 3.) was only discussed a ton once it became a fucking game.
Nice projection though, anon. You sure proved how superior you are to me, by systematically destroying your own argument.
The early days of free cities had a game, though. Pretty much every other game goes to bat with an actual proof of concept, no matter how bare bones it is. This game does not.
Even CoC in its earliest concepts had more game to it than this game does. You are shilling so hard you have dilluded yourself into thinking that an author who, in two months, has added nothing substantial to his non-existent game and gotten burnt out on tweaking his check boxes will ever possibly amount to anything.
Neither of us are talking about masturbation, anon.
By your own admission, there is literally nothing to discuss. This thread exists purely as an advertisement for the developer.
The fact that you are aggressively shutting down everyone who isn't sucking the developer's dick tells me that you're either impressively stupid or the developer himself.
What the fuck are you talking about?
BY YOUR OWN ADMISSION IS IS NOT A GAME.
Now stop fucking shitposting.
Please, go on about how you're so correct and how this non-game deserves to be discussed despite it having literally nothing but a name.
This is the only game people are shitting on like this, because it doesn't have any kind of content or structure you idiot.
>I've seen it before
Name even a single time it has ever happened. Feel free to take your time, I'll wait for as long as it takes.
Because I can't think of another time where nothing but a name has had a thread for this long, especially with an aggressive shitposter like you defending it the entire time.
Oh come on, anon. You're incapable of finding even a single example.
Don't act like you being called out as a liar is somehow a victory for you.
You're the only one who has mentioned "victory" here, anon.
You can't act like you don't care about something when you're the only one bringing it up, and you're doing so repeatedly.
Right, sorry. I had forgotten that I had quoted you there. I guess you're correct and everything I was saying was wrong.
What are you talking about? I just admitted that you won, the thing that you clearly desperately crave, based on how much you've talked about it.
Go ahead, revel in your victory. Throw a triumph, anon. You deserve it for being so correct on the internet.
I'm not sure where this line of shitposting has come from considering I've never once even mentioned the erotic (or lack thereof) nature of the game, but I like it. It's utterly irrelevant to the discussion and an ad hominem attack simultaneously.
If someone counters the statement, you have successfully dragged the discourse down to your level, and if they don't then you can just ignore everything else they're saying and act like your non sequitur was correct.
If you hadn't demonstrated so thoroughly already that you're incapable of thought I'd be impressed by a move like this.
>once you realize you can't win the argument with a shitty IP ban
How was I supposed to know you were banned? Or are you trying to imply that I'm a mod?
Ah, just refreshed. That makes more sense.
It would probably be for the best if my side of the argument was deleted as well.
Bad troll got banned.
Someone was shitposting about how Accidental Woman isn't a game but it's still somehow a good game and that no one's allowed to shit talk its lack of content, and that we should all pay the developer like the good goys we are.
Virtually every public IP address in the world says you're a retard
Does anyone know if any actual progress has been made? Dev said in his latest post that "stage 1" should be finished not long after Christmas, what is stage 1? the prologue?
>implying progress will ever be made
>implying 100% of thaumx's effort isn't going towards making the promise of a game seem more promising
>implying this isn't just a fucking scam
>Older saves are not compatible, sorry
Oh no! Did I just lose all my progress?!
Where the fuck is the download button on the ugly new site
page 2 if you follow the link above.
new public version, if anyone is interested.
change log: https://www.thaumx.com/single-post/2017/12/16/Public-Release-Version-0053
I don't think this is very useful. In decompiling the html like it suggests, you only get one .tw file that has everything scattered randomly throughout. Since it does have everything, you could compile it again and It would work.
But, how to use these github files? You can't. Or not directly. And it would be a huge waste of time breaking the /tw file into a similar structure. Since, as far as I can see, you'd need to do that with every release.. New art gets added -> decompile the latest .html again. Again, you'd be left with a huge .tw file to deal with.
Or am I missing something?
What's not included
>decide to check this "game" out of morbid curiosity

>apparently in America you pay for your shopping at the parking lot instead of inside the shop
>the game suddenly completely breaks down
>a hellscape where time and space lose their meaning

>struggle in vain trying to figure out if this really is supposed to be the game or if I broke something
I think I get it. This game is a metaphor for meditative self-denial. First you define yourself in detail, even though you don't really exist in any meaningful way. The shop represent Gautama's struggle with and eventual rejection of self-torturous ascetism. Next you are thrust into a nightmarish half-reality, in which you can futilely try to find meaning, or accept that both this game and life is suffering and only way to win is not to play.
>notice a shiny new website
>still no content or any real "game" months later
It looks like a great business strategy. Acquire money on promises, use money to make promises more attractive, get more money, bail out.
Yep, seems to be working pretty well.
>been like 6 months since any kind of real update
>making even more money per month on patreon
Just went through the """prologue""" of 0.9.5. The UI has gotten better and he's embedded a lot of attractive pictures he found on imagefap or something, but there's still no game here. You spend an hour customizing the girl, her fetishes, and her personality, followed by a shopping trip, and a session of dress-up. Then you're done; you've exhausted all existing content.
So basically literally nothing has changed in the last 6 months other than some stolen images?
He wrote shitloads of text for every choice you make and there's an encyclopedia, but it's still not playable on account of not being a game.
How do people not realize this is a scam
it's definitely 100% not a "scam." It's just the work of a totally insane person. He puts so much work into the website and the nonsense "updates" that he could have been done by now. There's like 10 page quarterly reports and blog updates every 6 hours.
The project itself is very clearly the big wank of a man with a mental illness. It's turning into fucking TIMECUBE
