Spoiler #3

Work in progress #23

The news about progress!All this time I’m very actively engaged in the development of Episode 2.

Now is the end of the stage of the rendering of game arts. It’s about 90% of renders already sent to the render station. Currently, there is about one thousand total of them.

The next step is to create an animation (yes, there will be animation with Monica). Total render time of animation and arts will take about ten more days.

In this time I’ll rework the game engine. It’s impossible to start the new chapter based on the mess that has accumulated there. Also needs to make a lot of improvements in it.

I had hopes that the programmer will help me to speed up the work, but I still have not found a good helper.

So I have to do everything myself, which will affect the release date of the game.

I planned to release the game at the end of this month, or the very beginning of the next. Due to the amount of renders and work with the engine, I can say that I will not have time this month. Most likely the game will be released closer to the December 10th.

Please understand me. I’m working at full speed, trying to maintain a high level of quality, but it costs time.

I want to make the sequel worthy of the previous game. I hope you stay with me and help me with this.

Work in progress #22

Hi!

It’s time to tell the news about the game and share thoughts about the future!

Work is going well. A lot has already been done, but also a lot more to do.

In the second episode, I want to use slightly different gameplay. The engine was initially written as some semblance of a sandbox. The first episode was linear, so the rework was linear too, but with some freedom of choice. In a linear plot, choices produce an infinite number of branches. Developing of the whole variety of branches is simply impossible.

It was decided to make the second episode with a number of storylines.

The storylines will be different. And if you like some events, but do not like others, then you can play only those storylines that interest you. Each of the main storylines will have its own final of the game. Where will Monika eventually come…

One more parameter will be added – “corruption”. If you wish you can play only certain storylines and complete the game without hard hot and humiliation scenes (Monica would be very grateful to you ^_^ ), but if you wish to make progress in such lines, you need to increase “corruption”. Bitchiness will also mean 🙂

Monica will wake up in the morning, and she will have a choice what to do next.

She needs to get food somehow. She needs to eat every day, or almost every 🙂

Monica can just steal food at the gas station, or she can make money on it.

This will be the beginning of the fall storyline.

The fall storyline

The fall storyline will start with the fact that Monica will have to work in poor neighborhoods and communicate with many people. Monica needs nothing more from these people but to do her job. But you understand that some people want a few more…  🙂

How Monica reacts and where this path can lead her depends on you 🙂

This story will later give the start to other storylines…

Betty and Bardie

Monica needs to live in a house, which means she has duties. If she wants Betty to be kind to her, she will have to clean the house every day.

In the house, two storylines start at once.

The Betty line and the Bardie line. These stories will cross, but this is one of the most humiliating ways for Monica.

These stories will also give a start to other storylines in which you will meet many familiar characters.

The office storyline

After all, Monica can borrow money from a secretary in the office.

This is the office storyline. Monica will meet new boss Beef and also Melanie, Alex, Dick, Victoria, etc…

These storylines will be started from v0.1.

In the near future they will be continued and also new ones will be added.

For example:

Marcus storyline.

Steve storyline.

The neighbour storyline.

Perry storyline

and many others.

The ultimate goal of the game is to return the former life. What kind of life it will depend on which path Monika takes. It’s quite possible that this is far from the life that she would like at the beginning. But who knows what she will be by then 🙂

As you see, it will be a significant and exciting game. Of course, only the beginning will be implemented in v0.1, but there will already be something to play.

I planned to release v0.1 at the end of this month. I don’t have confidence that I will have time to do it. But I promise I will try.

Launching a new episode is hard work for me, but further updates will go faster.

I hope you stay with me. Only thanks to you this game develops and sees the light!

Work in progress #21

Hi!

I wish to report that I’m working on the continuation of the story.

As you can see, Monica is not pleased with the state of things.

So she wants to fix everything and quickly return as it was. Find out in Episode 2 if she succeeds and how fast? And what will she have to go through on this path?

It all depends on you too. You can make it easy for her, but you can make her go through the all possible and impossible things 😉

Stay up to date!

Fashion Business: Episodes (Renpy Edition) EP1 COMPLETED has been released!

Hi!
I’m glad to present you the new version of the game which finalizing Episode 1 completely!
I’m very happy that it happened! Yeeeahhh!!!!
So much hard work is behind!
I made the decision to rework the game on 22 Apr. So, It took half a year of work, which showed the decision was correct and explained that to set big goals and achieve them is quite possibly. It’s possible if you love your work and people support you!
Yes! The main thing is the support of people! You, who read this – you make this game possible! And I say THANK YOU!
So let’s summarize what has been done and what the game has become!
The Episode 1 is entirely reworked on Ren’Py engine.
The story is overgrown with many details and became much wider!
The plot has become non-linear, and the game is very replayable.
There are two happy endings in the game now, a lot of choices, many different H-scenes, etc..
The game has reached a whole new level of quality. It is fair to say that now it is one of the top tiers of this genre!
The world in the game is alive. Almost all on the screen – is interactive. There are about 750 (!!!) clickable items in the game! Of course, not everything can be taken and touched, but about each piece you can get a comment from Monica, depending on the progress of the story. You can learn a lot about Monica, as well as find secret items to achieve one of the endings.
Further, there are more than 4300 (!!!) top-quality render arts. Average user rating of game graphics is “excellent“. It makes me happy and appreciates my hard work!
The game engine consists of about 1600 (!!!) graphics assets and sprites! So, every state of the game is showing as is and not schematic like in many other games. Every sprite has real full rendered shadows and looks realistic! It’s very hard, but the quality is in the first place for me.
And finally video clips. There are a lot of scenes and 226 (!!!) animation clips summary in the reworked Episode 1!
Significantly, the quality of the gameplay has grown thanks to your feedback. I took into account every review. At the same time, I have my own vision of the game. I received requests to include some elements of the plot that I did not expect, and I rejected them.
In my opinion, you can remake the game so that it will be very like by someone, but it will cease to be interesting for everyone else. So you can be sure about the future of the game.
Stay up to date! 😉
