Simply Mindy 0.9.5 / 1.1.0 Preview

Sorry for the delay, folks. I took an extra day to prep 1.1.0. It's a new dungeon so I had a lot of shit to slot in and a lot bugs to work through. It's hardly 100%, but I'm damned happy with the results.

Anyway! You're not here for that dungeon (maybe), you're here for 0.9.5. (Things went wrong mildly.) Let's get crackin'.

0.9.5

Today's new build features a bunch of new stuff centring around a new job. The juicy details:

- New job: Modelling. Starting in her third year, or earlier if you luck out with your stats, Mindy can get a job as a calendar model, posing in front of a stupid summery backdrop while wearing a string bikini. Sexy times. She gets four animations to start off, 'cause I'm generous.

- New NPC: ShutterBug. He's fuckin' weird. Unlike the other NPCs he is not sexable (kinda), 'cause I needed to make up for the two non-job NPCs somewheres. There is a sex animation associated with him, though. Find it on your own. ShutterBug also has cut scene animations for a goddamned change.

- New storyline! Obviously, since there's a new job, but this comes with a twist: it's finished. Finito. Done. Everything related to ShutterBug is finished, and he comes packaged with three brand-spankin' new endings. One of them is just doing the job a lot, the other two you can figure out yourselves.

- Set up a quest system for storyline-related quests. You can now check your progress and see what you need to reach the next leg of a particular storyline. This does not pertain to dungeon quests just yet. Expect that in 1.2.0.

- Added three new animations for Farmer John. His story doesn't go any further, but by god, all of his sexy-sexy animations are done. Enjoy snuggling with an undead monstrosity.

- Added a new animation for Farming. Yay.

Yep. Go check it out above. I'm proud of the storylines, even if they are pretty danged weird by the end.


1.1.0

New dungeon. New monsters. New bosses. New quests. New bugs. New... new. Lots of new in this one. If you enjoyed the first dungeon you'll like this one more, because I like it more. So there. Specifics:

- Five new monsters;

- Four new bosses;

- Four new quests;

- Items, including equippable shit like Speed Heels that will let you run;

- A shit-ton of small-style sprites gettin' it on; and

- Plenty of examples of Mindy getting nailed. Because it wouldn't be an update without that.

Yep. Patreon, guys. $2. Need I say more? I need not.

Simply Mindy 0.8.0 / 1.0.0 Preview

I'll be a bit more expansive with this update. Last time... things. Things and stuff.

0.8.Something (This release went a little badly at first)

This release is all about endings, and you're getting six brand-spankin'-new ones, to bring the total up to seven. They include:

- Three for Froglord;

- A Time's Up ending, thereby making the game finite; and

- Two job endings, one for Camwhore and one for Maid, so... I guess technically the Maid one is another one for Froglord? Not really

This also includes the introduction of Bonuses, similar to Soo Cubus, which you can apply to your next round of play in Simply Mindy. There's also a gallery where you can view all of the endings you've collected. Remember: If you start a new game from the main menu without opening your old game, you will delete your save file, along with all endings collected.

Froglord's three endings are accompanied by his complete storyline, as well, so there's plenty to see and do. He also gets the rest of his overnight animations! Hooooope you like Froglord, 'cause this release has a lot to do with him.

Known Bugs

I'd like to set up a dedicated page for bugs I've found and eliminated. For now I'll just stick 'em in this release and hope people bother to read the damned notes. These bugs are fixed in the latest Patreon build, but you public peeps will have to suffer through them a little while longer.

- I have gotten many messages that the battle with the Judge can sometimes freeze when he uses his gavel attack. This is relatively rare, but it does happen. I've replaced the raining gavels with a larger, glitch-free one in 1.0.0.

- People have noticed that you can occasionally spam jobs. Stencyl keeps fucking this up on me despite repeated attempts to fix it, and I don't know why. At any rate, I think I've got this nailed down in 1.0.0, but I'm fully prepared to see someone point it out and vex me once again.

- Job description stat boosts don't always match actual stat boosts. I've gone through and fixed these for 1.0.0.

- The rain in BloodOrb Forest seems to make the game laggy for some people. Still working on an alternative. There are also some minor graphical glitches (black boxes, mainly) which I'm honestly not sure I can fix within the framework of Stencyl, though I'll keep trying regardless.

- The A button doesn't always appear on the screen while trying to interact with things in the dungeon. Pretty sure I fixed this in 0.9.0, but there may still be cases of it in 0.8.0. You should nevertheless have no problems just hitting A and interacting with objects / doors regardless.

1.0.0 Preview

Honestly, 1.0.0 is mainly about sexy animations, 'cause I'm also gearing up for the next dungeon, due out mid-April, god willing. Consequently, all you'll get for this Patreon release is sixteen new animations. Shitty, right? It also has facial expressions for Lil D in cut scenes and a few of the bug fixes mentioned above.


C'mon. You know you can't wait to see Mindy licking an ice cream cone that's wedged between her tits. You know you can't.

Simply Mindy 0.7.0

Hi, guys. Build is late because I've had to deal with a funeral that popped up out of nowhere, and I don't really have time to focus on much else besides that. I'm going to put 0.7.0 up quick, though, while I have a chance. It adds two new areas to the dungeon for you to explore.

Side note, I know about the Intellect and Spirit bugs, and they got fixed a little while ago. They're not fixed in this one, as I recall. So don't push them over 100.

Simply Mindy 0.6.0 / 0.8.0 Preview

Forgot to update last week again. Dammit.

0.6.0

- Added two new jobs, the Cosplayer and the Mascot. Both are outfit-related jobs, and Mindy's looks will change a lot for each of 'em. As such neither one has a 'default' set of clothes for cut scenes, and Mindy will look like a plain ol' ho when talking to the two new NPCs. Each job has two animations.

- Added storyline for one of those two NPCs. Hint hint: it's the more ghostly of the two. He gets a sexy animation with Mindy, and so, too, does the game's other ghost NPC (though unfortunately if you got that far before you'll need to start a new game and snag her again, as I forgot to set the flag up last time).

- Added spells. Mindy can cast spells. Yay! You can purchase spells outside the shop in the first dungeon. Each spell has its own little animation, and five of them are available right now.

- Changed up Mindy's sprite in the dungeon so she actually matches her damned combat outfit. Grumble grumble only I care about this grumble. Consistency grumble.

Yep. Mainly an aesthetic change, though there's enough game play to keep you going for a while. Now, if you want a beefier build, might I recommend...


0.8.0

You may have noticed, in the screenshot above, a slight difference in the normal layout scheme.

Yes. In 0.8.0., available exclusively to Patreon users for the next month, you can get yourself a Sinner's Orb and meet Mr. Moe. Which means there are now endings. Seven, to be precise. Seven. They include:

- A Time's Up ending;
- Two job-related endings;
- Three involving Froglord, everyone's favourite landlord; and
- One bad one involving a boss, which has been in the game since the last build but didn't amount to much.

Also? A gallery, with which you can view them once you've collected one or more. A gallery. You know that shit is worth two bucks. You just know it.

Simply Mindy 0.5.5 / 0.7.0 Preview

0.5.5

Oh my lulz. Look, a new build - and the primary addition this time 'round is the goddamned dungeon.

(Don't mind the extra .5. Things happened. We don't talk about them anymore.)

Yes, now you, too, can go exploring in the wilds and get into fights with evil, evil monsters. There are a few quests to do and plenty of vicious wildlife to bone. Some of it is a touch glitchy at this early stage, and the combat is rather barebones in this build (the next one has spells, as I recall), but there's still plenty to appease your genitals. Boost your physical stats - say, at the Farm - to unlock the dungeon.

The particulars:

- Five regular monsters to kill, and two bosses
- Item shop with a new storyline NPC
- Several (three, I think?) NPC quests spread 'round the dungeon
- Progression through Farmer John's quest, along with the ability to bone the ol' bastard
- Mindy gets to wander the overworld in the wrong outfit (fixed in the next build)

And... things. And stuff. It's up now. Go fuck up some monsters.


0.7.0 Preview

Y'know that dungeon I just gave you in the public build? In this build, it's bigger. And it has more monsters. And bosses. And storyline stuff. And that shopkeeper you met? The one with the brown-and-red hair and the cool gauntlets? You can bone her. I know, it's exciting. Patreon! Go do the Patreon!

I have a penchant for making references to stuff I like.


The spells in the dungeon area (which you public folks will be getting in a scant few days) are all summons. In this case... he represents the Scan spell.

Because. Like. He has... a scanner. Get it? ooooohohohoho

It amuses me, anyway.

Yeah, yeah, it's a porn game. I hear you, you want titties. Here, have the sprite for the Quake spell as recompense. It makes more sense in context.

dragon dragon, rock the dragon, dragon ball zzzzzz
