    Evening folks, our public and patron releases have updated once again! This is a notable update, not so much for the amount of content in it, but that this represents the end of our Phase 1 development - species introductions. Phase 2 will be much more feature-oriented, and we'll be starting with a revamp of the game's introduction sequences. This should be an interesting phase of the project, and you can swing by the Patreon for more info. Or, you can check out the game links below:

    This month's patron update is now up! This release is a little smaller than most, due to the fact that I'm holding back on adding in the introduction revamp until it's more complete. To help tide you folks over though, we do have some nice art updates, including the female Roth insectoid designs! This month's second release in a few weeks should have the revamped tutorial in it, and I'm hoping it'll be at least somewhat entertaining even for folks that have already played through the game as it is. We also still have a development poll going for the next few days for patrons, currently in the lead is more Specialist relationship content. There's quite a few Specialists, so we are taking requests on who should get priority, even if you can't vote in the poll itself. Can find more info on the Patreon, but you can enjoy some patch notes here:

    v0.18.0 Change Log

    Game Functions:

    * Monthly Cheat Code Updated

    Scene Content:

    Double update tonight, v0.18.1 for patrons and v0.17.1 for the public! Due to a clarification of Patreon rules, public builds will no longer be directly linked on the Patreon, but can be found on our blog's downloads page, or, well, below. The latest release focuses on revamping the game's introduction and tutorial, which is nearly done but still needs a few more scenes. Once that's wrapped up, we'll be moving on to Specialist relationships! We also have some nice insectoid art added this month, which I'll be putting together some previews of later. More info can be found at the patreon post, or the patch notes below:

    None planned at the moment. Between the interspecies aspect, and the part where playing through a game probably won't take 9 months (though we'll see when it's done), there's not any particularly easy space to fit it in. Perhaps at the end when I'm filling out niches here and there, I could add a post-game epilogue that advances time a bit to show various cross-species mutts running around or such.

    v0.19.0 is now up for patrons! This release continues the introduction revamp, very nearly done now, but also includes a lot of art goodies! We have portrait art for Sorority the Cloner, some new background art, and notably, designs for the Figura natural (unshapeshifted) form. This doesn't appear during gameplay yet, but it will be very useful for future CGs and the like. Once I wrap up the new intro, I'll be moving on to Specialist scenes for a while, and we currently have a poll ongoing to determine some priorities for Specialist scenes and art, particularly now that Sorority is all arted up. You can find out more on the patreon, or you can check out the patch notes below:

    v0.19.0 Change Log

    Our latest supporter release is now up, v0.20.0! This release has a few more Specialist Flirt scenes, but more interestingly contains quite a bit of new character portrait artwork! Work also continues on TTS/Accessibility Control updates, and I'll likely be continuing on that for the next release or two as well. The patron poll on the next batch of NPC portraits still has a few days left to run, but based on early results we should be having some new Roth Insectoid artwork coming up.

    This game keeps wandering across my radar, and it always looks really enticing, but I'm having problems really getting into it. Well, mostly one major problem, really: The background's a bit too distracting for me to read all this text on. Changing the, err, background background (?) in the options menu doesn't really help, since it's the background of the text box itself that has all these edges and stuff. Turning off text colors helps a bit by making things less visually noisy, but then the text colors themselves are useful for keeping track of who's talking, so I'd like to keep them.

    I could look into doing a minimalist UI option, no promises on when I'd have time for it though.

    Hey guys, got a pretty big update for our supporters tonight! First off, we've got a full half of our set of Directors arted up with portraits in just this release, with the second half already well in progress. This is the final set of NPCs needing designs, after which most of our art efforts will be able to focus on scene CGs (priorities for which we currently have a supporter poll running to decide on). Additionally, I had some time this release to add in a much-requested QoL improvement: visible hints for choices to make during Citizen Seduction attempts. Now once you've made a certain attempt on a certain race at least once, it will be marked for you in the future as a good, bad, or neutral choice to make. We also have a few more Specialist Flirt scenes, and we have Hummer and Princess up next on the list for those hoping to see more of the ladies. You can find out more at the Patreon post, or scope out the patch notes below:

    v0.21.0 Change Log

    Game Functions:

    * Monthly Cheat Code Updated
    * Directors may now show portrait art where available. Director options added to gallery portraits.
    * Director Scene 5 buttons will no longer appear, seeing as this content is some ways off.
    * Seduction attempt choices, once used, will be colored on your next encounter with the race to indicate if they are good choices. Green = Good, Yellow = Neutral, Red = Bad. These are unlocked on a per-race basis, although there are slight preference differences between genders as well. This will only track choices attempted starting with this version.
    * The 'Max Impersonation' cheat will now unlock all seduction attempt hints for all races as well. This cheat will need to be activated again with this version in order for this to take effect.

    Scene Content:

    * Piledriver Flirt 2 & 3
    * Roth Garden Random Encounter

    Art Content:

    * General Awenson M/F Nude and Clothed portraits added to scenes and gallery
    * Chief Researcher Jaegean Nude and Clothed portraits added to scenes and gallery
    * Commander Nashe M/F Nude and Clothed portraits added to scenes and gallery
    * Baroness and Praetor Nude and Clothed portraits added to scenes and gallery
    * Roth Specialty CG added to scenes and gallery

    Codex Entries:

    * None

    Bug Fixes:

    * Seduction Attempts will now use the correct racial preferences for 'Place' suggestions.

    Known Issues:

    * TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
    * WebGL Issues: Be warned that save game data in WebGL mode is less permanent than PC standalone. May also be more prone to memory and other issues.

    Evening all, another double update night, with v0.20.2 for the public, and v0.21.1 for patrons! This release is a little thinner than the last one, with a focus on Vox Propagandists, but mostly due to the nature of the cycle as we already have a couple new art items submitted for the next release. I recommend checking out the status post if you'd like more info on the coming month, and you can find the free release up at the usual downloads page. I will say here though that we're almost entirely done with the NPC design phase of the artwork, and from here on it's pretty much all gravy! And by gravy I mean sex scenes.

    Latest patch notes:
    v0.21.1 Change Log

    It's Patron release day, today with something of a milestone: completion of NPC portraits and designs! We've got three sets of Director portraits in this update, along with some new CGs and a set of Flirt scenes for the insectoid Roth Specialist, Princess. Our artists have now been retasked to working on backgrounds and sex scenes, while I'll be writing up scenes for Switch, the Secret Police Specialist for the next release. This month is getting a compressed schedule somewhat, so a smaller chunk of content, but I believe we're still making good progress even so. As always you can get more details at the Patreon post, and patch notes below:

    Today...is not a double update day, as I've moved up the release of v0.22.1 to avoid landing on the holiday. Patrons do get a treat tonight, however, with a new batch of Specialist flirt scenes, and our first Director/Overseer CG! While a smaller release due to the compressed schedule, we still have some goodies, and we've set things up for the rest of the Director scenes which are on the way (Schen Scientists currently in progress). Our next free update will be next Friday. In the meanwhile, you can check out the Patreon post for details, or the patch notes below:

    v0.21.1 is now up for the public! You can find it at the usual page here. Notable features include flirt scenes with the Lencist Piledriver and the Vox Hummer, and a buttload of Director portrait art.

    Also, while we have been adding quite a bit of artwork of late, it's mostly been reserved for patrons and those who find it in game. To add something for those checking it out, may I present a scene from the recent patron release:

    v0.23.0 is now up for Patrons! This release marks the completion of Specialist 'Flirt' stage relationship scenes...if a lot of stripping and masturbation counts as flirting, at least. I may be fuzzy on the subject. Our next milestone is currently up for a poll which will be ending soon, so I recommend checking out the Patreon this weekend to hear more about what goal we'll be working on next - it may be a big one. We also have a number of new art items in this update, including two new CGs and a new background shot. You can check out the patreon post for more info, and the patch notes follow:


    v0.23.0 Change Log

    Game Functions:

    * Monthly Cheat Code Updated
    * Minor tweaks to Scenes Gallery to make variants more space-efficient (still not a final layout). Button images tweaked to be more visible.

    * Double D Flirts 1, 2 & 3

    Art Content:

    * Color corrections made to Vessian Matron portraits

    * Background added to Citizen Seduction - Simulation Deck Scenes and Gallery
    * Vessian Specialty Citizen Seduction CG added to Scenes and Gallery

    Codex Entries:

    * None

    * Corrected preference flag setting that was swapping the preference 'type' for Celopi Specialty M/F and F/F CGs.

    Known Issues:

    * When reviewing random encounter scenes that have been unlocked, the selection options may not show the correct buttons.

    Double update tonight! v0.22.1 is now free on our Downloads page, while v0.23.1 is now up for Patrons! This release marks the first work on the Exploration Missions feature, which will probably be taking most of the effort for the next few months. These updates are going to include a lot of functionality that only partly works until it's all finished, so I definitely recommend checking out the Patreon post for the full breakdown of what does and doesn't currently work with the new Mission Selection screens in the latest release, or this post from a few weeks ago which explains exactly what Exploration Missions are. While I'm working on that, our art team continues with Director CGs and background shots, so there should be some fun smut to keep folks happy while I work away at the code. Patch notes follow:


    v0.23.1 Change Log

    Game Functions:
    • The Tension cost of tier 5 Department scenes has been reduced to zero. This is a temporary adjustment so that all scenes are available in a single playthrough without cheats, and will be restored once additional sources of increasing Tension have been added to the game.
    • Once Exploration Missions have been unlocked via Specialist relationships, the 'Launch Mission' button will now appear in the Office. This will take you to an example mission launch screen, this is for demonstration purposes only at this time. See the Patreon posting for this release for more details on what currently is and is not functional.
    Scene Content:
    • None
    Art Content:
    • Citizen Seduction - Private Quarters background added to Scenes and Gallery.
    Codex Entries:
    • None
    Bug Fixes:
    • Corrected issue in Citizen Seduction - Taste scene where a line was using the player's gender flag rather than the Citizen's.
    • Previously reported issue with buttons during random encounter reviews was due to using an old save file with a version compatibility issue. A check has been added to warn the user if they may suffer from this issue.
    Known Issues:
    • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
    • WebGL Issues: Be warned that save game data in WebGL mode is less permanent than PC standalone. May also be more prone to memory and other issues.

    Hey all, letting you know that v0.24.0 is now up for patrons! We get more into the Missions part of development, with the Mission Selection set of UI screens now fairly complete. You can now see how selecting a team will work, with the only missing part being that there are not yet any actual missions to populate the info boxes with. We also have a new Maelish CG from artist Suki! Our next focus will be on the UI for the Missions themselves, but this may take several update cycles to finish. In the meanwhile I'll be working on some Hellfire content as well, and perhaps filling in the codex a bit, so no releases seem too empty. For more details, check out the Patreon post, or the following patch notes:

    v0.24.0 Change Log

    Game Functions:
    • Monthly Cheat Code Updated
    • Mission Tutorial button and popup boxes added to Mission Selection screens.
    • Mission Selection Updates:
      • Corrected state cleanup issues when canceling selections and then returning to the screens.
      • Morph Selections now include gender toggles for non-Terran races.
      • Impersonation Skill texts are now linked in to actual skill. When skill is 50% or higher, the text will disappear and the race will be selectable. Portraits will be greyed out when not selectable.
      • Terran portrait now matches your character selection.
      • Morph portraits will default to your character selection gender, but will swap when applicable based on your selection here.
    Scene Content:
    • None
    Art Content:
    • Maelish Director CG, with gender and ethnicity variants added to Scene and Gallery
    Codex Entries:
    • None

    Hey all, it's time for another public/patron update! v0.23.1 is now available on our downloads page, and v0.24.1 is now up for supporters! Being a holiday release, this cycle is a bit of a random assortment, before I get back to focusing on the Exploration Missions for the coming releases. Every release gets us a little bit closer, and I'm hoping for 2019 to be the year in which Carnal Coup is officially complete. Missions will take a few months, as will the followup Specialist relationship content, but once that's out of the way I anticipate the end-game sequences to be relatively quick. As for what we have right now, you can check it out on the Patreon post, or the following patch notes:

    v0.24.1 Change Log

    Game Functions:

    * Scene Gallery now has multiple pages

    Scene Content:

    * New Hellfire conversation option added

    Art Content:

    * 'Space Cruise' Citizen Seduction scene background added to scenes and gallery
    * Vox Director CG variants added to scenes and gallery

    Codex Entries:

    * Roth Species entry added

    Bug Fixes:

    * Fixed issue where loading a game saved at a Break Period, which may immediately trigger a random encounter, would not apply dialogue text coloring properly

    Known Issues:

    * TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
    * WebGL Issues: Be warned that save game data in WebGL mode is less permanent than PC standalone. May also be more prone to memory and other issues.

    Just a heads up, v0.25.0 is now up for Patrons, however for various reasons this release is particularly skimpy. The next release will also be more focused on back-end stuff, although I do plan to have at least a touch of smut in it. Hope it doesn't disappoint. :p

    So, little later with the most recent free update, due to a weekend of illness - but v0.24.1 is now free for the public at the usual blog page! v0.25.1 is now up for Patrons as well, and features some additional Hellfire content, although the focus was on the code side of things, and will continue to be for the next few months most likely. I will be keeping some non-code updates coming though, which you can read about in the monthly status post. We already have a couple of art items queued up to go -it's a short month, and with the brief delay the next update is right around the corner.

    v0.25.1 Change Log


    Game Functions:
    • Text To Speech enablement is now a saved setting.
    • Overseer Character Selection has been redesigned as a sub-scene. This should have no visible effects on behavior.
    Scene Content:
    • Hellfire Dialogue Scene 3 (requires at least 3 recruits to unlock)
    Art Content:
    • Male Overseer/Roth Director CGs added to Scenes and Gallery (six variants)
    Codex Entries:
    • None
    Bug Fixes:
    • Corrected usage of the Return key during Character Selection.
    • Corrected TTS dialogue during Female Overseer selection which mis-identified the options.
    • Hellfire now strips down when a conversation turns steamy.
    • Corrected case where Portrait galleries could become nonresponsive when switching from one type to another.
    Known Issues:
    • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
    • WebGL Issues: Be warned that save game data in WebGL mode is less permanent than PC standalone. May also be more prone to memory and other issues.

    We've got a double update day, or weekend, really. v0.25.1 is now up for free at the blog page, and v0.26.1 is now up for patrons! This release is primarily notable for finishing off a coding sidetrack I've been stuck on for the past month or two, freeing me up to focusing again on some more new content. I am making some minor changes to one of the patreon reward tiers, which I cover in some detail in the monthly status post. Enjoy!

    v0.26.1 Change Log

    Game Functions:

    • Options, Gallery, Overseer Selection, and Credits panels have been transferred to a new system allowing usage on multiple scenes/levels. This should have no effect on apparent usage but required a lot of code movement and rewiring of buttons - please report anything not working as expected.
    Scene Content:

    • 'Support Group' Random Encounter scene added (no unlock requirements)
    Art Content:

    • None
    Codex Entries:

    • None
    Bug Fixes:

    • 'Back' button on CG galleries now remains on the 2nd page
    • In the unlikely event of a save file being transferred between a Windows 32 and Windows 64 system, the flag for TTS access should now be updated on load
    • Main dialogue screen scrollbar sensitivity increased
    Known Issues:

    • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
    • WebGL Issues: Be warned that save game data in WebGL mode is less permanent than PC standalone. May also be more prone to memory and other issues.

    v0.27.0 is up for patrons today, featuring a nice chunk of new artwork in our Directors/Overseer series. There's also been a decent amount of code work done, including a fix for one potentially mean bug that may've hit anyone who played the last version, v0.26.1. Can check out the Patreon post for more details on all that. Next upcoming release should include at least one new text scene, and it's probably about time I started making some actual mission content to go into this Exploration Missions feature. Check it out!

    v0.27.0 Change Log
    Game Functions:
    • Monthly Cheat Code Updated
    Scene Content:
    • None

    Codex Entries:
    • Setting - Overseers
    Bug Fixes:
    • Fixed issue in v0.26.1 where opening the options screen would reset gender preferences and settings. Note that this would occur even if you did not enter the cheat code to bring up those toggles.
    • Fixed issue where the art preferences panel would not close unless you fully closed the Options screen.
    • Fixed several typos in the introduction tour sequence.
    Known Issues:
    • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.

    Hey all, v0.27.1 is now up for the public, and v0.28.1 for patrons! We're getting well into Exploration Mission code and content at this point, and we now have something at least marginally playable in that area, if not exactly pretty at this time. We're also going to be able to use this as a springboard to start on getting serious in the Specialist romance plotlines, so you can expect to see more of that in the near future. As usual, downloads are up on the blog, and I recommend checking out the monthly status post for our May plans.

    v0.28.1 Change Log

    Game Functions:

    • Some basic Exploration Mission functionality added. Only Grunt's loyalty mission exists at this time.
      • The mission selection screen can now pull relevant information from mission sets.
      • When choosing a loyalty mission, the relevant Specialist will be locked in on the Specialist selection screen.
      • Advancing through a mission will pull encounters, displaying the encounter text and an enemy NPC profile. Special abilities not yet implemented.
      • Each encounter has an 'Easy Way' and a 'Hard Way', stat requirements are now shown on the selection buttons, and buttons will be disabled if team stats are not high enough for that option. If both options are too difficult, fleeing and trying with another team composition may be required.
    Scene Content:

    • Random Encounter - Schen Sex Toys (no unlock requirements)
    Art Content:

    • Octo Hangout Background added to Scenes and Gallery.
    Codex Entries:

    • None
    Bug Fixes:

    • None
    Known Issues:

    • TTS dialogue cannot be interrupted once begun. May have issues if triggered on multiple screens at once. TTS support is 64-bit Windows only.
