    New Release: Version 0.132!

    Hi everyone, I'm uploading a fun new release this week, featuring the addition of a whole new weapon type: GUNS!
    There's an arsenal of new guns scattered around the world, as well as a series of new gun-based skills to be learned from Marlan.
    Guns are a unique weapon in that they aren't tied to the attack stat as a source of damage, meaning they can be equipped from the back row without penalty.
    Beyond that, there's been a host of other tweaks to combat, bug fixes, and new additions. Try it all out and let us know what you think.

    Best,

    Nym

    Version 0.132 - 5-22-2020
    • Changing equipment in battle no longer skips a turn; instead, it applies a short evasion and counter attack debuff. This was done to encourage more experimenting with synergizing different weapon skills
    • Added the post-battle cove maps for the victory path (WIP)
    • The “ATB ready” sound effect was changed
    • Added the ability to equip guns!
    • Many new guns added to the shops & stealable from enemies
    • Gun skills can now be unlocked from Dalkon
    • Gun damage is based on a combination of Luck and Agility, meaning there is no penalty to gun damage for being in the back row
    • Updated the Skill Book with all the new Gun Skills & Abner’s weapon descriptions
    • All timed attacks are slightly more rewarding for perfect timing and slightly more punishing for misses, averaging to the same
    • Added missing fish to what Kethra will buy at New Light
    • Marlan no longer dodges attacks in the tutorial fight (this is so players can experience the difference in timed attacks)
    • Some early dialogue adjusted for better quality and continuity
    • Emelia will now send Mercy off with some food and the advice to learn cooking
    • Fixed some tile continuity issues in Shiveworth
    • Fixed a couple of portrait issues for Leite
    • Fixed an issue where Mercy could try to fish through the gates in the aqueduct
    • Fixed an issue where Gromblers were fished at the cove docks instead of Hufferpuffers. Gromblers are now exclusive to the Emerald Flats

    New Weekly & Alpha Release: v0.133!

    Hi everyone, hope you're hanging in there and staying healthy and sane.

    I've just finished uploading the latest weekly and alpha builds, which finally start to flesh out victory conditions for the latest cove siege, though there's a whole lot more coming (including bonus rewards for exceptional outcomes).

    Right now, it's mainly about adding everyone back in and writing out a lot of different conditional lines of dialogue depending on who makes it through unscathed and... who doesn't. I have a feeling I'll be fine-tuning this particular feature for a long time, so I'm just trying to get it all out there and written for now.

    Anyway, it's been a busy month, and next week I'm hoping to have a bunch of new audio for the game, including new voice work for Leite, Beatrix and Mercy!

    Thanks for the support, and as always, we hope you enjoy.

    - Nym

    Version 0.133 - 5-29-2020
    • Added everyone back to the damaged cove for the post-victory condition with new dialogue!
    • Fixed an issue where Olma could appear in the cove inn even if not recruited
    • Fixed an image overlay issue after the siege if you had recruited Marilea
    • Fixed an issue where Gorps could appear in the cove even if he had died
    • Fixed an image overlay issue after the siege if the boathouse was constructed

    • Fixed an issue where a key fragment could be looted from the same pot twice

    New Weekly Release: v0.135!

    Hey everyone! We're almost at the end of the road! This week updates the "victory" path with new content and some new areas to explore.

    Most likely by the next alpha release or shortly thereafter, the story will be complete--then it will just be going back and fine-tuning things, adding extra side-content, new scenes, new images, tweaking balance, that kind of stuff for a while.

    Then it's done! My god, I can hardly imagine it. Hope you're looking forward to it. Thanks for sticking with me this far.

    New Release: Not Dead Edition (v0.136)!

    Hi everyone, Audrey here!

    Nym, our main developer, story writer, artist and practically everything else, has been dealing with some health issues over the last couple of months. We're hoping he's over the worst of it but we're still waiting on some test results and it going to take him time to recover. In the meantime, our updates may be a little more sporadic with less progress being made. That said, we're nearing the end of the story so we're hoping that soon we can concentrate on making the game even better as a whole!

    • Updated some earlier scenes for better continuity
    • Fixed some typos

    Hey everyone, happy to finally get you a new patron build after having last week off.

    Hope you enjoy!

    In what chapter were you supposed to visit the snow town area with the mansion and wolf for the first time? That’s the last time I played this game and I would like to give it a replay but I am not sure if there has been a lot more content added or not.

    Hi there, to help put it in perspective, it sounds like you've played around half of the content currently available in the latest public build and closer to a third of what's available in total.

    New Release: Version 0.138!

    Hey everyone!

    Happy to present the latest and greatest in Daughter of Essence technology: version 0.138. Added in a lot more scenes and details for the possible endings to get, but there's still a lot more to go where that came from.

    Also finally added in the voice lines we got a while back for Leite, done by the very talented Midnight Datura. Those can be peeped in a couple of different endings as well.

    As always, the notes are below and we hope you enjoy.

    Version 0.138 - 7-17-2020
    • Added in a new voiced segment for Leite
    • Added new ending scenes
    • Added in Moon’s Cookbook, obtained from finishing the side-quest in Emerald Flats and sharing the muffins with Moon Lee. This unlocks a number of special new cooking recipes
    • Fixed an issue where Qel could land in various unintended places, causing issues with the menu
    • Fixed some quest journal issues and updated some unfinished quest entries
    • Fixed an issue where Hallie could remain in Mercy’s party after defeating the assassin
    • Removed a dev chest from Fogsborough
    • Adjusted some skills for better balance
    • Adjusted the Equipment Optimize function, more accurately weighting all of the base stat parameters for a more intelligent optimization (still ignores special parameters like evasion, resistances and critical, for now)
    • Adjusted a number of cove resident sprites for better quality

    Thank you! Also, is there a way to deactivate the auto-save function? It’s been kind of annoying me since it constantly auto saves the slot before my current save.

    Yes, pressing the N key (by default) will disable or enable the autosave feature.

    If you go into your keybind settings, you may find a couple of other hotkey shortcuts that are helpful. There's also a splash screen on startup and an image file included in the game's root folder with some of the default keyboard shortcuts.

    Thank you so much for the extra quick response time. And great work! The game’s just as good as I remember it being. Even if I am replaying the prologue.

    New Release: v0.139!

    Hi everyone!

    As of now, 7 of the 8 possible outcomes are more or less wrapped up, but I had to hold one of them back because it wasn't ready. Fortunately, it's the one least likely to be obtained, so it shouldn't hinder most players.

    I was going to just wait until they were all wrapped up and polished, but that kind of polish takes a lot longer than you might think so I figure I might as well let some of you experience the satisfaction of concluding your legacy at long last.

    The best I can tell, next Friday's build will also wrap up the last ending and get started on the polish side of things. Also, no picture this week because the build was 100% words and 100% major spoilers, lol.

    Plat the public build or become a patron at https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur

    Important:
    I've said this before, but I plan to implement some new features before release that'll break save compatibility. I'm trying to hold those off for now since we're so close to the end, but in the coming weeks as I'm getting everything spit-shined up for the big 1.0, you might see your saves stop working. The very next alpha build (v0.141) will probably be the last version you can use with your old save file and will include all of the game's endings, so make sure you don't hold off too long!

    Version 0.139 - 7-31-2020
    • Added in all of the ending narratives EXCEPT ONE (FUCK)
    • Added in a new voiced segment for Beatrix
    • Fixed an issue where the Ch. 8 Qel cutscene could play when arriving to the valley in Ch. 10
    • Added Mercy’s wounded sprites
    • Fixed an issue where Eva could be incorrectly absent from the cove post-battle

    New Release: Oh Man Oh Jeez

    Today, I'm releasing version 0.140 for both Windows and Mac, the build which finally includes the last of the story content (for now) and the last of the voice samples (for now).

    This is, for all intents and purposes, the first narratively "complete" release of Daughter of Essence, although it's naturally still in its alpha state.

    This is a pretty monumental occasion for me, but there's still a lot to do, so it's a bit early to pop the corks just yet. Just the same, we really hope you enjoy this content and look forward to seeing what's coming next.

    "But Nym," you might ask, "what IS coming next?"

    Loosely speaking, and without making too many promises, here's what my agenda looks like for the coming weeks:

    1. New features and mechanics implemented (will break saves)
    2. New art
    3. New written NSFW scenes
    4. New voice lines
    5. Thorough playtesting, bug-fixing, combat improvements, balance-adjustments and writing edits for quality & continuity
    6. Re-examining the way our written scenes are viewed on the screen, to see if we can increase readability and quality
    7. Hand-to-hand abilities and weapons
    8. Continuing to tie up any loose ends with the narrative
    9. Fleshing out more of the ending summaries for optional characters

    Thanks to everyone for the support so far, and we'll see you soon!

    Version 0.140 - 8-14-2020
    Added the final ending narrative scenes
    Added in several new voiced narration segments for Mercy
    Fixed some typos and text runoff issues
    Fixed an issue where a test switch was enabled for the ending sequences, allowing certain endings the player might not have earned
    Fixed some dialogue in the ending narratives for better quality & continuity
    Fixed an outdated fishing spot in Mar’Liore

    Phew, REAL glad I'd never downloaded this before- having to start over again would be a huge pain! How long, roughly do you think, until this game is going to be FINISHED? Because while I'd quite like to play it, I want to keep the number of times I have to repeatedly download the game to get the latest version to a minimum- preferably just one, if possible.

    New Release: Version 0.142!

    Hey everyone! Not doing an image this week, because almost all the new stuff is system tweaks or changes to stuff that already exists.

    You can get the full scoop down below, just remember that all bets are off for old save files at this point until the full launch. I've knocked a lot of the features out I was hoping for, so here's what's left to tackle:

    - New Art
    - More adult scenes
    - Playtesting
    - Balance
    - Bug Fixes
    - Fleshing out all the endings a bit more

    Until next time, hope you enjoy!

    Version 0.142 - 8-28-2020 - (Breaks old save compatibility)

    • Added a new cutscene with 2 variations which helps to contextualize some of the endings
    • Added an “overkill” feature, granting bonus rewards for overkilling easier enemies
    • Base weather effects now carry over into battles from the map
    • Added a shortcut keybind to the Stat Allocation menu (“P” by default)
    • Added keyboard functionality for name & number entry
    • Added the ability to rename most weapons and armor (useful for keeping track of rune upgrades or hidden abilities, or just for fun)
    • Added a “message speed” feature to the options menu
    • Redesigned the shop buttons for use with a mouse
    • Made some minor tweaks to the early cutscenes for better quality & continuity
    • Mercy no longer starts with 100 SP; instead, she gains 100 after choosing her Essence Type
    • Fixed an issue where spending 300 SP only increased crit chance by .5% instead of 1%
    • Fixed the coloring on some of Orus’s weapons
    • Adjusted a typo in the target rate distribution & made it cost 100 SP instead of 300
    • Fixed an issue where trying to leave the throne room in the opening dream sequence revealed the wrong portrait

    The currently weekly build should be compatible with the final product. As for a timeline, we are near the end of the alpha but it's hard to say beyond that.

    Release 0.143: The Exterminator

    Hello, everyone! Version 0.143 is here!

    I'm working on a couple of actually COOL things this week (that you'll learn more about soon), but most of my fun took a backseat to the Biblical plague of bugs that I've been busy annihilating. Thanks to JJJ from the Discord for reporting a number of these.

    The full list is down below. The keen observer might also notice some new content and fairly significant balance changes sneaked in there, and I am caught red-handed: it's been a busy week in Development Purgatory, but the finished result is a much refined and improved experience for everyone, I think.

    And it's all fully compatible with last week's build, so don't fret there. Chances are, everything will be compatible now even up through the full launch and beyond.

    Ready to try the public build or become a patron? Visit https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur


    Version 0.143 - 9-4-2020
    • Made equipment scale slightly higher to avoid scenarios where the player never upgrades once they have runes slotted into early gear
    • Reduced the point value of HP on gear and in the upgrade screen from 20:1 > 15:1, which should also address axes seeming disproportionately easy to use at lower levels
    • Added Maven back to the cove post-siege
    • Added a new campsite in the Glass Sea only accessible with Qel that starts a new quest (WIP)
    • Level caps are now 50 instead of 99, though SP can still be earned indefinitely. Stat allocation is capped for primary stats at 100 each and 33 for special parameters like crit and evasion
    • Fixed an issue where renovating the throne room after accepting the Iron & Scale quest could result in Meghan repeating dialogue about it
    • Fixed an issue with the doorway from the cove to the residential area sometimes not showing up correctly
    • Fixed a few outdated cooking fires
    • Fixed an issue where Lily could still remain after the first siege even if she died
    • Fixed an issue where Lily could mention Bartleby even if he wasn’t recruited
    • Fixed an issue where Mercy’s “Coat On” Switch wasn’t properly tagged when entering Esterholt, resulting in the wrong fishing animations
    • Fixed a missing portrait issue for Beatrix in the Carvannah palace dungeon
    • Fixed an issue where the mining cart riding sprite wouldn’t appear correctly in Hawk’s Keep
    • Fixed a portrait issue in the frozen caves passage
    • Fixed an issue where donating wool or milk to Lindsay in Aster Valley would incorrectly subtract a cumulative amount from your inventory equal to everything you’d donated so far
    • Fixed an issue where a guard in Fogsborough could appear in more than one place at once
    • Fixed an issue where Marlan could appear twice during a cutscene in the cove
    • Fixed an issue where the lumber could remain at Fort Wilkes even after the raft was built
    • Fixed an issue where riding in the Hawk’s Keep mining cart in chapter 9 could send you back to the chapter 7 Hawk’s Keep
    • Fixed an issue where the quest log still referred to the Emperor Crab as a fish
    • Fixed an issue where Quinn and Bartleby might not appear if they were recruited from the flame temple quest
    • Fixed an issue where Bartleby and Quinn would have dialogue based on the wrong death flags instead of their partner’s
    • Fixed an issue where you could enter the cove’s boathouse during the red moth cutscene, causing a scene break
    • Fixed an issue where Franz could appear before the final siege even if he had previously died
    • Fixed an issue where Mercy was unable to ride Orus in certain cove map variations in later chapters
    • Fixed an issue with the Red Iron Stump greatsword where it was not correctly applying the Dizzy state
    • Fixed an issue where leaving Mercy’s bedroom after ch. 8 could fail to prompt a choice to leave the dorms directly
    • Fixed an issue where Mercy’s “Daughter of Essence” class wasn’t correctly applying the added physical damage penalty
    • Fixed an issue where a number of quests in the journal without names or places would have placeholder names
    • Fixed an issue where Marlan could appear in two places at once when returning from Witchdale

    New Weekly & Alpha: Bugpocalypse II, the Reckoning

    Hi everyone, the new release this week is another massive collection of bug fixes and quality of life improvements for weekly & alpha patrons alike.

    Just a reminder to the alpha patrons, however, that this version will not be compatible with your old version 0.140 or earlier save files on account of the myriad new features.

    Still working hard on some new content behind the scenes, so there's plenty more to look forward to. Thanks again for all your continued support, and I hope you enjoy!

    Version 0.144 - 9-11-2020

    • Made slight changes to all the long-form scene formatting in the library. Enlarged the font from 28 to 30, reduced the page line count from 16 to 14, and added ¼ second delays to the end of every paragraph to reduce the ease of accidental skipping (If this is a popular change, it will also be implemented in the normal scenes)

    New Release: v0.145!

    Hi everyone! We've got another build with a whole lot of small improvements to quality of life, bug fixes, system upgrades and fine-tuning.

    This fixes a lot of long-time issues that have plagued the game as a consequence of higher than 60 hz monitors and should also improve performance on a lot of PCs while making the playing experience more consistent for everybody.

    Thanks for your continued support as we make the game as good as it can be in preparation for the full launch!

    New Release: v0.148 (Alpha & Weekly!)

    Konbanwa, comrades. We have made considerable strides (finally) with a new system for overhauling the game's overlaying image systems, which will hopefully improve performance quite a bit in builds to come as well as make maps look more interesting and dynamic in the process.

    This is a work in progress, so parts of the game have these new improvements and parts of the game remain how they were before. In addition, I've got some cool new fishing features launching this week and a million other bug fixes.

    Hope you enjoy!
