Game Version Changelog:

v1.5.0 BETA

  • Added missing picture of the Murphy bathroom scene (Kissing).
    Added a backround to the dialogue window.
  • There will be a ‘Crossroad’ in Episode 5, but, as of now, there’s only one route of the main story available. Right now I’m focusing on the straight/lesbian routes and the first ending.
  • I’ve listened to criticism (good and bad) and I’ll make sure these are corrected for Episode 6. As for season 2, I will change the way I render and create scenes. Rendering the whole scene with characters in it is inefficient with my PC’s capabilities and requires a lot of editing.
  • Season 2 will probably be in either first person, or more in the lines of Good Girl Gone Bad, with full character side images in dialogues between characters. Then I can use a more focused style with character actions, I.E. kissing, sex etc.

v1.2 BETA

  • Episode 3 – Shadows
  • I’ve started introducing some of the variables needed for different paths for the later parts of the game and I had to take some time figuring things out to make sure everything was free of bugs.
  • Because of these new changes to episode 2, your old saves won’t work and you’ll have to start a new game or go back to your last save in episode 1.
  • That’s it for now, I’ll take a few days break and then start on Episode 4. There’s a few scenes I have in mind I need to render and add to the next episode, but then its mostly coding work left to do.

v1.1 BETA

  • Episode 2 – Temptations.
  • No changes made to previous episode.
  • Focused a little bit more on the paths, and important decisions.
  • I’m slow-dripping in information about Jenny’s past / future while mainly building the world and the characters important in the first season.
  • I made a conscious decision on adding in a some explicit content this version, my first animation, which wasn’t meant to be implemented yet, but I gave it a go.
  • Let me know if you liked it!

BETA – Episode 1
Initial Release

Developer Notes:

(I have voice acting planned for this and future titles, which will serve as the main character’s inner voice. However, it is a costly service, adding to the expenses of an already expensive game. Since I handle all aspects of development myself, including rendering, coding, graphics, music and sound design, and screenwriting, these tasks are time-consuming. Therefore, voice acting will have to wait until the first season is completed. Once the first season is finished, I will add voice acting to create a full release version. Lastly, I hope you enjoy the game and follow future releases. I have tons planned and I’m working on episode 2 as we speak. /Barbiecued)
