0.4.0 derp. Blame Blogger.

For some reason Blogger decided to update the download link for 0.4.0, but it did not replace the url for the browser version. 0.4.0 is now up like it should be, browser fans. Sorry about that. (I'd say 'My bad', but... I distinctly remember doing that, so... Google's bad?)

Simply Mindy 0.4.0 / 0.6.0 Preview

Oh, Saturday, sweet Saturday. What bringeth you to these tired eyes? Why, a new build, of course.

0.4.0

This week's public build is stuffed with all sortsa new stuff, including the beginnings of the story system that will guide players through each game of Simply Mindy. A brief listing of the highlights:

  • Two new jobs: Prostitute and Arm Candy. Both will unlock in the second year if you don't unlock them earlier via the proper stat spreads.
  • Added seasonal stat boosts. Which stats rise change based on the current season. I'll try to make these changes reflect the animations going forward, though no promises on accuracy. (I have a lot of animations to do before I'm done.)
  • Three new story arcs involving Froglord, Farmer John, and Shirley (the old lady landlord). Finding 'em necessitates doing things that would involve said characters, hint, hint. Proceeding far enough along Froglord's path can earn you a fancy overnight animation.
  • Added icons for Stamina and Mood. Mood doesn't function as a mechanic yet, but it will... some day...
  • Bug fixes. yay
Ayup. Go, go! It's up!


0.6.0

As for the patrons...
  • Two more jobs: Cosplayer and Mascot, each with two animations
  • The beginnings of the spell system for the dungeon sections, with five new animations
  • Two more overnight animations
  • Naughty messages for the Camwhore
All this and more (not a hell of a lot more, but more) on Patreon! Yay!

Dimlight City!


I said a while back that I was working on another game while plugging away on Simply Mindy, and the time has come to unveil that game. (I'm actually a week or so late. I am bad at social media-ing.) Thus, I present Dimlight City!

Currently in the funding stage - though the game is going forward whether the team hits its goal or not, so far as I know - Dimlight City is going to be a brothel-building title in a similar vein to, say, Simbro, albeit with a much more polished and complete look to it once it's released. You have complete freedom to assemble your brothel, gather a team of gals to service customers, complete missions, and, likely, masturbate to animates bewbs. Think a lewd version of SimTower.

And what role do I play in this enterprise? I'm the writer! Writing's much easier than the rest of the junk that goes into game-making, so I'm all over that. Everyone else has to work their asses off while I get to weave a silly tale about sex robots and dildo ninjas and the like. It's a great scam I've got going.

(Honestly, the plot is much more expansive and detailed than I probably make it sound. I wrote a scene the other day about law-wrangling, of all things.)

At any rate, if you like my storytelling abilities - or sexy cartoons flopping about on one another - I highly suggest checking it out. The Kimochi they've got running right now has a bunch of cool bonuses available to backers. Shell out enough and you'll get to have, like, actual sex in an actual brothel. Maybe.

Oh, and, uh, Mindy's coming along fine. That's a thing too.

I draw weird things.



This little guy might splooge in Mindy's face. Might.

Behold the Cure spell. All the spells in Simply Mindy are going to be at least a little naughty in nature, and this dude will bestow his curative blessings upon Mindy via jizz. Fun! He'll probably show up for a few of the white magic spells, though there are, as of this writing, four other magical summons that show up in spells as well.

He's not in the game yet. But Friday... Friday...! Patrons...!

Simply Mindy 0.3.0 / 0.5.0 Preview

0.3.0

Better late than never. I had some stuff I wanted to get done on 0.5.0 before I released it to the Patrons, so it was only fair you guys got shuffled back a touch as well. Just a touch. This week's new stuff for the public:

- Animations for the school. All six teachers get an animation. Cumshots depend on whether or not said teacher has a dick, or involvement with a dick, or if I felt like including a dick.

- New job: Gloryhole Attendant. It unlocks in the second year, or if you get the right stat distribution prior to the second year. This also brings in another NPC who may look similar to someone else in the game.

- Added a billboard warning of upcoming Lil D contests. It also tells you when you've unlocked a new job. For the moment it sits on the wet t-shirt contest most of the time.

- Added hotkeys! The hotkeys is indicated in brackets beside the button. Please note that the hotkeys were a bit fucked up in this build - as I recall they were screwed up a bit on the walls - but they get fixed as of 0.4.0.

Yep. Mostly aesthetic. This was the Christmas build so I didn't get a shit ton done, but there are plenty of new animations regardless.


0.5.0 Preview

By contrast, 0.5.0 is a huge update - one might be tempted to call it yuge - because it includes the game's first dungeon. It's not fully fleshed-out yet, as it requires more seasons, but there's still plenty to see, including:

- Eight (!) monsters for you to battle, and / or fuck;
- Three quests for you to undertake;
- The beginning of the items system;
- A new NPC to meet; and
- An item that unlocks another sleepover animation.

Yep. Patreon, folks. Pa-tre-On.

I'm shitty at maintaining this devblog.

And for that I apologize. Once I'm done with build day I wipe this place from my mind and just set myself to work. Here, have some pics of what I'm working on as recompense.


Dungeon! It's coming up in the next Patreon-only build. Granted, it's less a dungeon and more a forested area, but I'm sure RPG fans get the gist of the term.


New jobs a-comin'. Mindy gets to be arm candy and a prostitute. Also, rich spiders.


School! All of these courses have animations. They will be showing up in the coming public build.

Aaaaaand other stuff! I'm working on lots of stuff. Right now the focus is on the dungeon and the combat system, with lots more sex animations included. Simply Mindy is gonna out-sex Soo Cubus, this I swear.

Simply Mindy 0.2.0 / 0.4.0 Preview

0.2.0

Yep, I missed last week's update. IIIIIIII'm a shithead. My bad. I'll try harder to remember next time. (Though in fairness, when the time came to perform the update I hadn't done a ton of work, 'cause... other game I can't talk about yet. My life is just ruled by porn games now.)

Anyway! 0.2.0 is now live to the public. A list of the changes you can expect:

- Added several new animations: two for camwhoring, two for soldiering on the wall, one for paying the rent, and two for not paying rent. Also have Squirt buttons, because people love jizz.

 - Added a shit-ton of cut scenes that will provide more than enough context to get the plot jumpstarted.

 - Added the first of the seasonal activities, a wet t-shirt contest. It pops up automatically on the 10th of Brimstone, and you can choose whether or not you want to participate. The chances that you'll do very well in the first year are pretty low, but, hell, give it a shot anyway, yeah?
  
Note of caution: since the game is only supposed to last four seasons the wet t-shirt contest will only trigger four times. After that it won't (shouldn't?) activate again. Just FYI.

- Added a whole bunch of cut scene expressions to Mindy, enough to probably get through most of the game. Might add two or three more for variety.

- Added buttons that will allow you to work / learn two or more times when entering a screen, rather than having to keep going through the same animations and screen transitions over and over. 

Please note that this does not reset the animations. You'll have to exit and re-enter to get a different animation, assuming your stats change.

- Rigged up the school so it's more or less operable. Pay money, receive stat boosts from various teachers. Each of the six teachers (eventually to be eight) has ten snippets of randomly-chosen dialogue that will trigger each time you take a class. I may change them up based on the season in the future. Animations appear in the next build.

  - Added rent! Everybody loves rent! As in Soo Cubus, Mindy is charged $100 a day. This will, over time, go up, and I'll probably add different rent penalties as the game progresses. Enjoy the ridiculously low difficulty level in the meantime.
 
 - Changed the font. I must have done this eight or nine times before I settled on a font, and I did it mainly so it could be read properly. 

 - Added Money and Stamina to the Stats roll-out menu. These have since been reshuffled so they appear in more visible, convenient places throughout the game.

  - Added in the bare bones of the calendar system. The seasons don't do anything yet, not even aesthetically, but now you can see the names of the four seasons in their glory, as the days move forward whenever you sleep.

- Added more thought bubble dialogue for Mindy when she's idling on the main menu screen. I did not have time to shift the thought bubbles out from under the roll-out stats, nor to disable them (timed events in Stencyl are funky weird), so for the moment they're still a bit obtrusive.

- Added code that will round stats up to zero if they ever drop below, because that will happen almost right away. The only exception is Morality, for reasons. (It isn't affected by anything yet anyway.)


0.4.0 Preview

 Whew. Big list of changes. Now for the new new stuff! If you support Simply Mindy on Patreon right goddamned now, you'll get to see the following changes incorporated into Simply Mindy 0.4.0:

 - Two new jobs, with two new animations apiece
- The beginnings of the storyline system, with three NPCs jumping in on the fun - and one of them getting to bang Mindy, dependent on your choices
- Seasonal changes to stat boosts
- Revamps to the hotkey system
- Revamps to the main menu stuff
- Several bugfixes

- Automatic saving

All that and more! What're you waiting for?! Patreon! PATREON! C'mon, I need to eat! I'm hungry at this very moment, actually, so to hell with porn, I'm gonna go make a sandwich. Enjoy!
