It's time for the monthly update! v0.14.0 is now available for the public, and v0.15.0 is up for supporters. This update largely focused on setting up the intro scenes for the home system of the Schen, establishing the player's base camp and plans. I've also started on a new XO smut scene, however it will need to be completed in the next update. This next month I'll be setting up the Joi system in the same way, and then doing some relationship scenes for the Seedcarrier. The patch notes are below, and you can check out more info at the Patreon post here.


v0.15.0 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • Functionality to set up Schen scenes.
  • Ship decorations added to Hansche and Joi system maps.

  • 1 Story-based duty assignment added to Schen plotline.

Evening all, it's new month update time! The public release is now updated to v0.15.0, and v0.16.0 is now out for supporters! This update includes some supporting artwork for the new factions, but largely focuses on more relationship content for the Seedcarrier. There's still a little bit more I'd like to get done with him before moving on, so you can expect at least one 'Romance' scene with the man in the next update. You can check out the Patreon post here for more info, or the patch notes below:

  • Functionality to support the use of spending requisitions in scene dialogue options.

It's mid-month update time, and v0.16.1 is now up for Patrons! This release primarily focuses on advancing the Seedcarrier's plotline, with a fair amount of new smut. I then spent the rest of the cycle working on quality of life improvements, with a particular focus on some new game options. For the rest of the month, I'll be returning to content with some new Harian and Seeder plotline scenes! For more info, you can check out the Patreon post here, or the patch notes below:

v0.16.1 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • Font selection added to Options/Gameplay. Fonts currently include Nasalization (current default) and the new Droid Sans option. Option setting is saved with save files. Setting only affects the primary scene text display.
  • Tabs on the Inventory screen are now highlighted similarly to those in Options.
  • New Cheat Code functionality:
    • The game now tracks if you've used a cheat code 'recently'. The cheat code prompt will not reappear when re-opening Options if you've used it once, and this is tracked in save files. However, it is reset when loading a save from a different version of the game.
    • Cheat code option added for advancing all scene timers to immediately allow the scenes. If you're currently in a 'hub' scene, you will need to exit and re-enter it to see if scenes have been unlocked.
    • Cheat code option added for immediately resetting all system heat values to 0.
Scene Content:
  • Romantic branch added to Seedcarrier relationship scene.
  • 'Romantic' Seedcarrier cabin hub scene and relationship toggle scene added.

It's mid-month update time, and we've got some new scenes tonight - some of them extra spicy! This update finishes off the main 'Harian civilians' plotline, although it will of course be revisited as the Harian system is wrapped up, and later on with the eventual epilogues.

For the next update, I'll be focusing on implementing a better scene replay system, as we're starting to get into more of the content that I imagine people will be wanting to replay. For more info, check out the Patreon post here, or the patch notes below:

There's even more assignments waiting to be added into the game, which will be my first task for the next update, along with getting started on plotlines for the newest species.

Happy Valentine's Day, all!

The queue of backlogged content waiting for implementation is now clear, and I plan to finally get started on writing plotlines for the new star systems in the next update. You can check out the Patreon post here, or the patch notes below:

Hey all, it's monthly update time! v0.18.0 is now up for the public, and v0.19.0's been released for patrons! This cycle focused on kicking off some of the reptilian Schen-based plotlines, particularly to introduce the Specialist and Leader NPCs for these factions. Portrait work for the new characters is currently underway, although they'll be getting placeholder portraits for the moment. Due to the shorter month I also had to leave some placeholder content in place for one of the new scenes, but I'll be filling that in soon enough with some new kink-trait-based scene branches.

You can check out the Patreon post here for more info, and the patch notes are below:

v0.19.0 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • None
Scene Content:
  • First Schen Specialist scene added to Schlyss, unlocked 20 hours following the previous Schen scene.
  • Second Schen Specialist scene added to Schlyss, unlocked 20 hours following the previous Schen Specialist scene. Branch featuring XOs in a relationship with the Player complete, Player-focused branches still in development.
  • First Schen Leader scene added to Schen Observatory, unlocked 20 hours following the first Schen Specialist scene.
  • Note: Character portraits for new scenes are placeholders.

Evening all, here to note that v0.19.1 is now up for patrons, and the Overseer's Edition of Carnal Coup is now on sale on both Steam and itch! This is part of the Spring Sales, but primarily I'd like to celebrate the launch of Steam's new privacy options, allowing you to hide your porn games from your friends.

As for this update, there's a number of new scenes and features covering the Schen and Happee factions, including new portrait artwork for the Schen Specialist NPC, Dr. 'Gigi'! Gaining DTF Happee recruits is also now a possibility, with all of the functionality groundwork laid to support the space goblins. For more info, you can check out the Patreon post here, or the patch notes below:

v0.19.1 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • Functionality to support Happee portraits and DTF recruits - DTF uniform art assets, facial portraits, NPC generation updates.
Scene Content:
  • Second Schen Specialist scene completed, with nine Player-focused mini-branches added, most based on sexual traits. If previously played, scene will need to be replayed to count as completed.
  • 1 Duty Assignment added to Joi System.
  • First Happee Specialist scene added to Megastructure Mall. Note: Portrait is a placeholder.
  • Scene replay options added for Schen and Happee scenes. New scene replays added: Schen Specialist 1 & 2, Schen Leader 1, Happee Specialist 1
Art Content:
  • Dr. Geesht portraits added to scenes and gallery (3 variants). Clothed variants unlocked by having played their first scene, nude variant can be unlocked via cheats.
Codex Entries:
  • None
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed error that would occur if using cheats to view the Gallery portraits of NPCs that had not been created yet (namely, Admiral Clausen). These portraits will not be available until the NPC has been met as their gender is defined at that point.
  • Fixed error that would break the Lover/Fuckbuddy versions of the XO Office scene.
Known Issues:
  • None

Evening all, it's another new month! v0.19.0 is now up for free at the usual page, and v0.20.0 is now out for supporters! This update kicks off a few more Happee Co plotlines, and also adds in a new QoL improvement which I hope will come in handy - map markers for when new plotline scenes are available! I have a bit more in-progress Happee Co writing to finish off for the next update, but after that I plan to return to the Harians. The Harian plotlines are almost complete, which means it's about time to get started on the process for what happens when a player 'completes' a system. I'll likely have more on that in the next update post or two. Til then, the patch notes are below, and you can check out the Patreon post here for more info!

v0.20.0 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • Scene Alert markers have been added to System and Galaxy Maps:
    • Markers will appear next to a System Map location if a new scene in an ongoing plotline is available at that location.
    • Markers will appear next to a System location on the Galaxy Map if any location in that system has an available scene.
    • Markers will not appear for: tutorial scenes, plotlines which have not yet been started, or one-off repeatable scenes.
Scene Content:
  • Happee Civilian scene added to Megastructure Mall. Added to replay mode.
  • First Happee Leader scene added to Mining Platform, unlocked after the first Specialist scene. Added to replay mode.
Art Content:
  • None
Codex Entries:
  • None
Bug Fixes:
  • Background image on the first Happee Specialist scene corrected to the Mall background.

Hey all, it's time for the mid-month update! This update features a new portrait set for the Schen leader NPC, and scenes for both the Happee and Harian leaders. The direction I'm going with for the Happee leader plotline is...perhaps a bit unsubtle for me, and is related to a short rant I've given on the Patreon post in regards to recent crackdowns on NSFW content on numerous sites. I'll be moving on with the Harian leader for the rest of the month though, and hopefully bringing that plotline to a close in the near future. Check out the post for more info, and the patch notes are below:

v0.20.1 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • None
Scene Content:
  • Second Happee Leader scene added to the Mining Platform, unlocked 20 hours after the first scene. Added to replay mode. Note: Due to a bug, if the first scene was previously played 20 additional hours will need to pass for the scene to unlock. Note: Portrait is a placeholder.
  • Fourth Harian Leader scene added to the Defense Platform, unlocked 20 hours after the third. Added to replay mode.
Art Content:

  • Schen Leader portraits added to scene and gallery. Nude variant can be unlocked via cheats.

Evening all, it's monthly update time! v0.20.0 is now up at the usual page, and v0.21.0 is now available for patrons! This latest update finishes out the Harian Leader plotline, and sets things up for the Harian system in general to be wrapped up in the coming month. Doing so will unlock a few new goodies, such as being able to recruit Harian crewmembers specifically, so that's something to look forward to for Harian fans. This update also includes some smut, and getting a CG done for that will be the next thing on our artists' to-do lists. You can check out the Patreon post here, and the patch notes are below:


v0.21.0 Change Log

Game Functions:

  • None
Scene Content:

  • Fifth Harian Leader scene added to the Defense Platform, unlocked 20 hours after the fourth. Contains two main variants, based on whether you played fair or not when capturing them. Added to replay mode. Unlocks the Admiral's nude portrait in the gallery.
  • Sixth Harian Leader scene added to the Defense Platform, unlocked 20 hours after the fifth. Added to replay mode.
Art Content:

  • None
Codex Entries:

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed issue with eye coloring on facial portraits for Harians.
  • Re-fixed issue where crew members could get traits for body parts they don't possess. Existing crewmembers have not been altered.

Evening all, it's mid-month update time! This update focuses on the setup for the plotline to 'take over' the Harians' home system, with a couple scenes covering the planning of your...plan. This update also adds portrait artwork for the Happee's DominatorCard CEO, as well as a number of progress flag-related bug fixes. You can check out the Patreon post here, and the patch notes are below. Enjoy!

v0.21.1 Change Log

Game Functions:

  • Minor improvement to scene branching functionality.
Scene Content:

  • First scene in the Harmen System Takeover plotline added. Unlocked 40 hours after the final Harian Leader scene, however the Harian Athletes plotline must also be completed and Choker's relationship type established (either Platonic or Romantic) in order to complete the scene.
  • Second scene in the Harmen System Takeover plotline added. Unlocked 20 hours after the first scene. Has several options for completion, the seduction 'combat' encounter option is still in development and will not currently complete the scene.
Art Content:

  • Happee Leader portrait added to scene and gallery. Nude gallery can be unlocked via cheats.
Codex Entries:

  • None
Bug Fixes:

  • An issue with progress flags would re-close the Victorious Alley scene and the Victorious shop after progressing the Harian leader plotline. These scenes will now be available 40 hours after completing the first Harian Leader scene.
  • A check has been added to unlock the Victorious Athletes CG in the gallery for save games which played the scene before the CG was added.
  • Due to an oversight with progress flags, the player's decision at the end of the Harian Leader plotline was not being properly tracked. Progress on the last Harian Leader scene has been reset if previously played, and the scene will need to be played again.
Known Issues:

  • None

This update focuses on the Schen, including the ability to recruit Gigi to your ship crew. This next month I'll be returning focus to the Seeders until I finish them up, although I'll also be starting a poll in the next week or so to select the next two factions to add, so I can get the artists started on assets for those. Keep an eye out if you want your vote heard!

Also, Carnal Coup Overseer's Edition is currently 50% off on Steam and itch.io! Check it out if you haven't already picked it up! v0.23.0 patch notes are below, and the Patreon post is here for more info.

Hey all, it's mid-month update time! This update features one new story scene, but the primary focus has been on a new type of duty assignment: chain duties. These assignments tell mini-story arcs entirely through duties, and four sets (21 duties in all) have been added in this update. There's still six more sets left to come though, and that will be my primary focus for the rest of the month.

There's also a poll running currently for Liberator+ patrons to choose the next two factions to be added to the game! I'll be adding in one returning species from Carnal Coup and one new faction, the insectoid Roth currently have a strong lead for the returning slot, but the slime/robot competition for the newcomers is still close!

You can check out the Patreon post here for more info, and the patch notes are below:

v0.23.1 Change Log

Game Functions:
  • Functionality to support 'Chain Duties':
    • Chain Duties are Duty Assignments with mini-story arcs, with several assignments which progress in a set order.
    • The first set of assignments within a chain will progress the chain even if they fail, although they will not provide rewards.
    • The climax assignment in the chain will repeat until it has been completed successfully.
    • The final 'epilogue' assignment in the chain will be infinitely repeatable.
Scene Content:
  • Fifth Seeder Civilian scene added, unlocked 20 hours following the fourth. Added to replay mode.
  • Two 'anywhere' chain duty assignment sets added (10 duty assignments).
  • Two Seeder chain duty assignment sets added (11 duty assignments).
Art Content:
  • None
Codex Entries:
  • None
Bug Fixes:
  • None
Known Issues:
  • Chain duty assignments still need additional updates to properly clean out invalid duty options from the list in some cases.

I haven't been on here for a long time for personal reasons so it's great to see the game thread still be regularly updating as it is, I need to get back into this one sometime bc I have such a soft love for it.
