    Speaking of an easier place to find the changelog, maybe just have a link in the game client somewhere that points to it? You could stick it in the FAQ, Credits, or next to the Patreon buttons or something?

    Is there a way to edit saves in this game? I like my first run through a new game to be overpowered so i can see everything and get to know what my options are before i jump in to a proper playthrough. This game spits out saves in encoded gibberish and googling produced no useful results, even using the develop console has no guide from what i can find.

    Sorry that I didn't answer this sooner: You should be able to get to level 2 by continuing to gain submission the usual ways. If you're doing e.g. the oral and captain's log events then you're already at level 2, you can't go any further just yet.

    The question about edit saving will have to go to Noob.

    does @Noob Salad check these forums daily? I've stopped playing the game waiting for what i hope is a way to save edit but if they only pop in once a month i may as well just bite the bullet and keep playing in my unpreferred way.

    I check this thread monthly. Have you considered using Cheat Engine?

    Doesn't appear to work in the usual way though i'm not capable of doing much more than selecting a value, changing it in game and then isolating it via rescanning the altered value. Since it is a browser game, doing so just doesn't work, first scan works, second scan removes all entries so something else is going on.

    You probably saw "PIP" in the Changelog. Scroll down, it tells you how to access all new content as it comes out.

    Ok so i think i've seen just about all the content i can, didn't realise the game was still so early in development when i embarked upon it but from what i can see, this game is going places, it's a solid start and i look forward to coming back to it later on in its development.

    Well, Saturday night disappeared in a haze of lust as I started this game. Love the concept, love the execution so far. Some questions and ideas:

    - As it stands, is there any way to increase Perception, Booksmarts, or Luck other than increasing your submission level to Iannan and having her increase your performance?

    - What the items do seems kind of unclear to me. I ran into an event where I was able to use a Jiminy instead of needing to pass a couple of skill checks, and the Contrapartment came in hand when I got boarded. The Jetpack, Laser Cutter, and Redshirt Generator are the ones that confuse me; maybe it's just that the situations where you need them haven't been added to the game yet.

    - Clothing is a big part of being able to embody a character, I think. That said, it feels like the bodysuit she gave you is also an important mechanic, and it wouldn't be feasible to have a ton of clothing options since each would require an accompanying image. My suggestion there would be to make it so that you can take off the bodysuit and wear other clothes if you go the dom route or you can modify it in exchange for favors in the sub route, with just a few options in either route.

    - Funny enough, I got really confused because I couldn't figure out how to do the sub route. I ended up exploring the dom route first because I ended up with enough favors from exploration grinding that those options became available. The Nerve mechanic never came into play until I read that that was how you get the first submission level, at which point I flew around surrendering to the little attack drones until it happened. It felt a little silly (although that's a nice scene, so I enjoyed seeing it). If there aren't already plans for this, I'd suggest adding some kind of sex scene once you've given Iannan a body that is like a two-stage thing, the first stage just being a sex scene and then having an option midway through it to do something submissive that gives you a couple of points there.

    - It would be a nice quality-of-life feature to be able to add a little text description to each save file. I want to do a dom route and a sub route, and being able to tag that on the save files where I branch those out would be great.

    Thank you, I hope this feedback is helpful!

    Lots of potential, but it seems that currently the end of the story is marked by catching up to the dude and teaching him a lesson while improving/dominating/submitting to the AI. There aren't any hints of grander things going on and your possible participation in them except for possibly finding out the origin of nigh-inconquerable cloud. Not that a game requires it, just that it gives the impression of a rather shallow, surface-level events story.

    Also @Dancer , jetpack and laser cutters do have uses but with the right stats you simply don't need them. I haven't run into a situation for the redshirt generator either though. As far as I can see the stats that you've mentioned don't have trainers currently. It is very tedious and will take longer than most will take exploring the entirety of the game's current content but you can slowly grind up your stats by constantly failing things that require them and even then to a low point because there are very few things that have a skill requirement higher than 18 of which 20 seems to be the current maximum. I can't see how luck can ever be trained or increased without going into superstition or probability shifting implants though.

    Thank you for the feedback!

    We're hoping to add trainers for the first two in the next backer's patch. I have a training mechanism in mind for Luck in the next area, however it's a much tricker skill to balance and we'll need to think it through carefully before adding it.

    They were going to have much more use in the Wrecks events I had planned, particularly the RSG. Unfortunately that's been shitcanned, so I'm going to have to share more random encounters that require them in the next zone. I'm also going to have to rethink them in general because the way the way I wanted them to be implemented isn't feasible. You will get the chance to put them all to use though, don't worry.

    The suit is immutable mainly so our CG artist always knows what the PC is wearing, and that cuts down on the amount of work she has to do. There may be a few scenes where the PC gets to wear something different, but they'll be one-off events that don't have (official) art.

    Again the fact the Nerve mechanic doesn't really work in its intended role of pushing you down the sub route is a known issue, and one we're looking to resolve. The next zone will have much tougher Nerve losses, and I want to do a thing where Iannan offers you a Nerve balm in exchange for increased Submission at 50% as well. I like your idea too. Just in general there need to be more options for the PC to submit.

    I've passed this on to our coder, and he says it should be easy to implement.

    Luck goes up whenever you get favorable RNG.

    One off events where the PC has other outfits will have art.

    Losing Nerve does increase your submission (and lowers your stats!) but it's not the only way.

    I went ahead and added descriptions to the save slots.

    Another month, another patch. This one includes Holli and Lorien, the ilzune futa twins who run a weapons shop on Auspice. One is soft, the other is hard. They have an absolute fuck ton of content, all of it written by bunny/rodent specialist William, which is not all in the game yet. Very glad to finally get some of the hard work he's been doing over the last little while into the game.

    Hello i wanted to ask if there is any way to change the character portrait. I quite enjoyed the old one more and i got curious if there is any way to do so?

    So, off gate, I wanna say I love this game, a lot so far. I do however, have some concerns. One of which and probably my primary, is this: Is there gonna be a focus on massive endowments such as disgustingly huge tits or dicks? Because if there is it'll probably sour my opinion on this game really badly. I'm one of those very rare souls who enjoys smaller tits and well proportioned bodies. I like my characters bodies to look like they make sense, not seeing a 5'0 girl have massive E cups or some ridiculous shit like that. I actively PREFER A to low B cup breasts, and I'm scared that this game, like most other porn games, is gonna consider those unattractive and either A) Make things actively harder as a result of playing this way or B) Just make everyone have a C-Cup minimum and say fuck you to anyone who likes anything smaller.

    Another concern of mine is what actively working for the ITE is gonna do. How is that gonna impact your relations with other factions? I know that's more of a long game question and at this point is way too broad a topic to really be able to answer due to either not having thought that far ahead yet or simply not yet having the features implemented, but faction interplay is gonna be something I want to see from this and I'm very curious as to how that will work.

    Now, this isn't really a concern, but more of me praising the ever loving hell out of you. Naming your ship the Normandy SR-2. I absolutely love the easter egg that unlocks, even if it's only around two easily accidentally skippable text boxes long. You sirs/madams, get a salute for that. I would also recommend maybe adding similar easter eggs for names such as: USS Enterprise. Seriously, this is too perfect not to have one for. The Tardis, while not exactly a spaceship in the traditional sense, I find you can very rarely ever go wrong with a timely, well implemented Dr. Who reference. The ship from Alien, It's name escapes me at the moment, but come on, the potential here is endless. I would actually love to see more ME references too, since this game is clearly taking inspiration from it. Also, you realize your game
    s description on TF basically equates to This is ME in Text form correct? On purpose or?

    @IdunnoInsertName You can't but I suppose I can add them to the gallery.

    @JagerMister I assume you're referring to Adjatha E-cups. The PC has an upper limit on how big they can get and the current art reflects that. There are actually several easter eggs depending on what you name the ship. Maybe @Nonesuch can add more for the Enterprise and Tardis.

    I actually like that you guys actively respond to posts in the forums and don't take any criticism/concerns as just being abject hatred for the game and being butthurt about it. When you're actively able to have conversations with the Devs of a game as it goes, it goes a long way toward showing that A) You actively care about the opinions of your playerbase, which is really important in general but doubly so for smaller games like this that are just getting stared. And B) that you care about and are dedicated to maintaining the quality of your work. You and Non aren't going to back down on what you guys want your core game to be, but you're flexible and actully take player suggestions, as long as they're reasonable and can actually improve the quality, under advisement instead of dismissing them outright for your preferred model. That's pretty awesome, so thumbs up from me.

    Just booted up the new public patch, is there a way to access H&L's new scenes when you've already maxed their trainings?

    Well you can continuously lower your Nerve to 0 to lower your stats.

    EDIT: I uploaded a hot fix so you can train.

    Tried dumping my savings into training to no avail, does the game need to see your stats actually go up to unlock the scene? If so I might just ned to try the nerve trick you mentioned.

    Nah your stats don't actually need to go up.

    Keep reentering the store while twins are working after you've trained 3 times with them each. Eventually you'll get a random event with the suite invite.
