Simply Mindy 2.6.0 / 2.8.0 Preview / Poll Winner

It's that time again. Let's get started.

2.6.0

This week's freebie build has three new features which I brought in to give players a little alternative for building up their stats.

- First up are Minor Crises. Minor Crises pop up on the main city hub page from time to time (it's pretty obvious when they do), and when encountered present Mindy with, well, a minor crisis. You're given a situation, allowed to choose between three stats to resolve it, and see what happens. Succeed and you get a little prize; fail and you get a little penalty. Either way you get some cheeky animations. These will work into some of the storylines (already have worked into Soo's storyline in 2.7.0), but for the most part you can avoid Minor Crises completely if you're not keen on the idea.

- Next are Titles. If you click on Mindy's face on the main hub screen you'll be taken to a new screen where you can choose a Title for Mindy. Titles will give Mindy little bonuses when she sleeps. Note that these effects are negated under weird circumstances (story-based, usually) or if Mindy hasn't paid her rent. Titles are usually earned through end game bonuses, and when they're unlocked once they're unlocked for good 'n all.

- Last is another 'school' NPC (I want to give her a unique backdrop some day) who will allow you to swap stats for stats at a 2:1 ratio. You can also purchase some Titles from her. (And, naturally, she has been worked into the sexy-sexy animations in 2.8.0, specifically in Modelling.)

Also, a bunch of little fixes for past problems. There are always more bugs to root out and stomp.


2.8.0 Preview

I was deep-diving in code a lot this week, so I set the storylines aside for a bit and focused my non-programming efforts on new animations. Filled in a bunch of gaps in the lineup, including:

- Two new animations for Shay at the school;
- Four new Modelling animations;
- Two new Camwhore animations;
- Two new Farming animations;
- Two new Cosplay animations; and
- Two new Mascot animations.

It's a solid lineup. I think Mindy looks good in the Team Rocket outfit. Even if the iconic 'R' never makes an appearance.

A heads-up in advance to would-be Patreon subscribers that last week's build was a bit of a shitshow because of a change in Stencyl versions with unanticipated consequences (a lot of stuff broke), and much of this build focused on fixing what went wrong. Just sayin', things that worked before may be a bit janky, though I've gone to lengths to address the issues. You won't have any troubles getting at the new animations, at the very least.


Poll Winner

Whoops. Forgot to preview last build's poll thing. Ah well. It was Metroid-related.

Anyway! THIS build's $3 patron-exclusive animation bundle was a bit unique. I gave my patrons a bunch of polls, and the results helped me cobble together a new female character. Behold Lady Tang, insidious pirate captain of the Sooniverse. And, yes, I've incorporated her into Simply Mindy in a little cameo. Will probably give her a bigger role in a future game, whenever that might happen.

Wanna see her get nailed now? Well, hey, it's only $3...

Simply Mindy 2.5.0 / 2.7.0 Preview / Fanart Finally

Sorry for lateness, guys. Seems like it happens a lot, lately. Mixture of weird personal stuff (my grandmother kicked my laptop down a flight of stairs and broke it?), the holidays, and the game becoming increasingly complex.

2.5.0

At long last, contests are fully-implemented in this build. All four of the seasonal contests are up and running. They include:

- The usual wet t-shirt contest, with some new contestants;
- A button-tapping, cum-rising, heat resisting contest;
- A modeling contest, where you pick an outfit and a pose for Mindy and she does the rest; and
- A quiz. Get questions wrong and Mindy gets dipped into a vat of tentacles. Guess what happens to her then.

Aside from a little glitch in the quiz where some of the questions don't appear (which has been fixed in a later build), it's all good. There's also a new ending tied to the contests, because of course there is, and the next build has two more contest-related endings.



2.7.0 Preview

Not up yet, as of this message, but soon. It's a complicated one.

2.7.0 is a Soo-centric build, so fans of Soo Cubus should get a kick outta this one. It covers the Prostitute and Arm Candy storylines, which squirm together and build into a battle against another NPC. Choose your faction based on decisions made throughout the two storylines and see who comes out on top. This build includes:

- Two heavily-related storylines that come together and interweave;
- A new NPC to face off against Soo (no, not that dude above, he's just involved);
- Eight (!) new sleepover sexy-sexy animations for Soo and the newcomer, depending on which side you ultimately choose for Mindy;
- Seven new endings, five related to the Soo stuff, two for the Arm Candy and Prostitute jobs alone; and
- A basic tower defence minigame that pops up if you side with Soo. If you don't you instead get a battle, which is less interesting, but still a thing.

It's still underway, but I'm hoping to have this bad boy up before I go to bed tonight. Barring that, sometime later today (Sunday). So if you jump on Patreon to get it, you might need to wait a little while.

Guy Gin!

Fanart


Yep, I'm a dick. I finally got around to posting the fanart that has been accumulating for the last few months. I've sent messages to everyone who sent the pics along, and posted 'em on the fanart page. I'll made a more concerted effort to wade through the ridiculous amount of email in my inbox on a regular basis so these don't slip through the cracks again.

If you sent art and I missed it, please resend it. I promise I'll be good this time maybe.

Simply Mindy 2.4.0 / 2.6.0 Preview / Poll Results

Oh my god, I got it done on time this week. Kinda. If 4 am-ish is considered 'on time'. I dunno. When you're your own boss the lines about that shit get kinda fuzzy.

Simply Mindy 2.4.0

This week's public build revolves entirely around JizzBiz, the blind-blonde-bombshell who, uh, 'runs' Hell's gloryholes. I guess you can run a gloryhole. You get the usual bunch of shiznit with her:

- Four new sexy animations with JizzBiz if you make her a 'lover', though there's a bit of a spin on that this time 'round;
- A branching storyline, which, again, is a bit different from the norm - you'll see what I mean when you get into it; and
- Four new endings. Three for JizzBiz, one for the Gloryhole job.

Yep. Sounds standard, operates a bit differently. JizzBiz has been neglected for a good long while, so hopefully y'all enjoy the conclusion of her story. (Her sisters get in on it a bit, too, if you like the whole family.)



Simply Mindy 2.6.0 Preview

This week's Patreon build adds a few new features to the game, one of which involves the images above:

- First up are Minor Crises. Minor Crises are semi-daily stat challenges that allow Mindy to battle everyday life in Hell. You encounter a crisis, you pick one of three stats to resolve it, you see how you do. There are different animations dependant on how well it all goes. And yes, the three peeps above are from the Minor Crises. Not a massive addition, but fun - and an alternative for building up your stats.
- Second are Titles. Titles are items, of sorts, which grant bonuses when equipped. Most of them at the moment grant Mindy an extra point in a particular stat when equipped, again, as an alternative means of stat building over simple grinding. Titles can be either purchased or won via ending bonuses.
- Third is Carla, a semi-schooling NPC who allows you to both swap stats (2:1 ratio) and purchase Titles. And yes, Carla will probably appear in sexy scenes in the future. I wouldn't throw a girl into the game and not show her having sex at some point.

Oh, and two more endings. Just because.

That's that. Whaddya waiting for? $2 is so little.



Poll Results

Last week's poll looked inward, and I gave my precious Patrons the option to choose between a whole bunch of Sooniverse girls. Top three wound up in a threesome together.

So... they chose... Mindy... and another version of Mindy... and a girl who might as well be Mindy.

...

At least I know Mindy is popular, yeah?

Build Schedule / Apologies

Another month-long build time is coming up, so the next build release is gonna be late in December, four weeks from now. Holidays, you know. Not much point trying to cram in a smaller build. That said, the next one is going to be a double-decker storyline for Soo, so that'll be fun.

I also need to apologize to those who have sent me fanart. My email account gets a few dozen emails every day, and several fanart messages got buried in all the Patreon stuff. I'm going to update the devblog a bit over the holidays, and once I do I'll add the fanart. Again, many apologies to those of you who submitted art. It's all pretty swag stuff.

Simply Mindy 2.3.0 / 2.5.0 Preview / Poll Results

Sorry for lateness, guys. 2.5.0 ran me into some severe overtime. Finally got done with those damned contests, though... more on that below. First!

2.3.0

The newest public build is good for job-lovers, as it's the final job! Huzzah! This one casts Mindy as a geisha in the house of a burly ol' feudal lord with nice pecs. You get the following:

- All eight goddamned season animations - not sure if I've ever managed to do that in a single build before;
- The first chunk of the NPC story associated with the newest guy; and
- The ability to make said newest guy into a lover, along with one animation.

I'm looking forward to finishing this particular story up. It gives not only one of the (in my opinion) neater NPCs lots to do, it also gives Lil D a lot to do. And I do so enjoy writing Lil D. He's such an asshole.


2.5.0 Preview

Y'know that cut scene that you probably all skip over by now that takes you into a wet t-shirt contest? Good news: the cut scene is gone! The wet t-shirt contest is still there, though, and it's accompanied by three more seasonal contests! The new contests in 2.5.0 include:

- An Overheating contest, where Mindy and another contestant try to hold out against the irrepressible heat of rising jizz;
- A Modelling contest, where you pick a costume (like the one above, my personal favourite) and a pose for Mindy and watch her strut about against other competitors for points; and
- A Quiz contest that will test your knowledge of the Sooniverse. Mindy is suspended over a pit of happy tentacles, and the more questions you get wrong, the closer she gets to slimy happy time.

Also, the wet-t contest. It has two more competitors. That is also a thing. Shiny tits, anyone?

Patreon. Right now. You know the scam. Do it up.


Poll Results

Last week's poll was all about anime girls, and the winner was a classic: Bulma, from Dragonball. Thus, she got a buncha animations of herself in different hairstyles, boffing a variety of DB/Z/S alumni.

All the more poignant since her Japanese VA just died.

So... uh...

That's... awkward. Still, spank material?

(RIP)

Simply Mindy 2.2.0 / 2.4.0 Preview / Poll Results

Yo. New build, she is on the way. Your public serving this week:

2.2.0

This build finishes off what I started in 2.1.0, fleshing out the third dungeon and adding a whole bunch more stuff for you to do. This includes:

  • Two more NPC quests (Cherry and Aember) and three quasi-quests, for a grand total of five-ish new things to pursue;
  • Four new bosses, including the final two Beasts (though one of 'em is not in this dungeon, and you'll need to go hunting for her in a previous dungeon, after locating a key that's rather critical to the whole thing); and
  • Five new endings. Three are Beast-related; two are tied to easily the hardest fight in the game thus far. I'll let you see for yourselves. 
It's also worth noting that a) One of the endings grants you the final spell in the game, one that I plan to extend quite a bit in the future; and b) One of the endings has a bonus that seemingly does nothing. It does, in fact, do something, though you need to go lookin' for it.

2.4.0 Preview


'nough said. If you like JizzBiz, you'll like this update. It's alllll about her, including:

  • A branching storyline (so surprising);
  • Four new sleepover animations (though with a bit of a twist, for variety); and
  • Four new endings, one of which is job-specific. You know, because, gloryholes.
JizzBiz was a loooooong time coming. Only $2!


Poll Results

Last week's poll was centred around porn, porn, glorious porn, and the situations that porn oft creates. 'Sex for grades' managed to win by a hair, and as a result last week's $3 bonus tier winner featured a dude and his precious teenaged (but of-age, always of-age) student. 

Since she did so well in a previous poll, I made said student Korra. Because why the hell not. For a tiny $3 you can see just what Korra does to raise that F-, in all its pixel glory! 

Also, you'll get Simply Mindy early! Because... that's how Patreon works, I guess! You know you wanna!

Simply Mindy 2.1.0 / 2.3.0 Preview / Poll Results

What ho. New build has arrived for all you freebie players out there, and, lo and behold, it's the much-anticipated third dungeon. Let's jump into it.

2.1.0

As with the first two dungeons, the third is jam-packed with new stuff - and rightly so, since I put two builds' worth of shiznit into it. You can look forward to the following:

- Six new enemies to fight, each with two sexy animations;
- Three new bosses, mostly done;
- Four new NPC-related quests, tied to either bosses, items, or both; and
- A bunch of empty space to explore. It'll get filled up as I fill out the game.

The monsters mostly made it into the brothel, though there were a few minor malfunctions in the gallery, so the flying dicks (there are flying dicks) aren't there until the next build. No worries, they aren't hard to find. There are also a few other bugs that have been largely (I think) smoothed out since this release, though feel free to comment and I'll see if they're still in the current build or not.

Also included is the elements system, whereby you can apply fire, water, air, or earth to Mindy's weapons and armour. Doesn't work on the armour in this build, but you can see some particle effects for your troubles.

2.2.0 builds onto the dungeon more and adds several endings, so if you enjoy this one you should like that one as well.


2.3.0 Preview

Moving past the dungeon and into storyline territory again, 2.3.0 adds - wait for it - the final job! yaaaaay! Took fuckin' long enough. Players can now enjoy watching Mindy get plowed as a Geisha. There's also a chunk of the NPC storyline added on, and you can make the new guy a lover, per the norm. I rather like how he's shaping up thus far.

Also? All eight Geisha animations are in there already. Done. Finito. Because I care. I care so much. You know you want that shiznit, and plenty more, for a paltry $2.

Polling Results

If you want to donate $3 on Patreon instead, you can also get your hands on the winnings from last week's user poll! It was sexy toon-related, and Kim Possible won. So. If you like sometimes redheads, sometimes brunettes, you know where to go.

Simply Mindy 2.0.5 / 2.2.0 Preview / New Patreon Tier

My god, I'm not writing an update at 7 am. It's only 2:43 am. I'm improving.

2.0.5

This is a biggun, and it was crazy enough that it drove me to require a vacation. The whole danged thing revolves around completing the storylines of two characters: Farmer John, proprietor of the zombie farm, and Seu, the busty girl behind the Cabaresque. You get the following from the build:

- The branching stories of both characters, which fly in all sorta different directions;
- Nine new endings - John gets four, Seu gets three, and each of their jobs gets one;
- A bunch more battles for the two scenarios, which may or may not come up depending on your decisions; aaaaaand
- Fixes. The .5, uh, may have been the result of staying up until, like, 48 hours or so to get the build done. It was not a fun time, let me tell you.


2.2.0 Preview

Soo Cubus players may remember this oily lass. Or not. Did you play on Hard Mode? That thing I still need to fix?

2.2.0 was originally going to be 2.1.5, and I was going to release a smaller 2.2.0, but voters on Patreon convinced me to just do another full build instead. As a result 2.2.0 is another dungeon-centric build:

- Adds two more NPC quests to the third dungeon;
- Adds two more bosses to the third dungeon, as part of those quests;
- Adds the two remaining Beasts to the game, both girly-girls;
- Adds five new endings, three related to the Beasts, and two related to an area I'd blocked off earlier; aaaaand
- Fixes some shit I did wrong in the last build. Not everything, but some.

It's a solid build that adds some confusing shiznit to the cosmology of the Sooniverse. And it can be yours, for a low, low price of $2!


New Patreon Tier

Look familiar? It should! This sprite is one frame of a Patreon-exclusive redo that I threw out as a sample of a new Patreon tier I'm going to fully implement on Monday. It's a $3 tier which will gift donors with a new animation every non-build week. These (likely) won't go into the games, but will instead allow donors to participate in themed polls and vote on what they want to see. One week you might be voting on your favourite classic porno setup, for example, while the next you'll be deciding which Sooniverse character should get banged by Link, Hero of Time. The possibilities aren't endless, but they're legion.

I'll set up the tier now so anyone who wants to get in on it can, and on Monday I'll throw out the first poll for all youse $3 donors. You know you waaaaannaaaaa!
