Version 0.14.1 Public Release

Download*: https://mega.nz/#!rkdTzYba!rKXvtn7lda7Wgs3cOg4nUFE8yXfXbh3rDrrEI4oz-YA
RTP Version: https://mega.nz/#!ukd1hA4Z!Crfaysxeg8n8hUwP6_fO3cLAwyO4HM8qqHlkHkdRjRQ
BKG Mirror**: http://www.badkittygames.net/games/tls/

*Requires RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to be installed. If you don't know what that means, use the RTP link.
**Won't be updated immediately.

Version 0.14.0:
 - Completed Simon's route.
 - Eight new plot sex scenes.
 - New NPCs and dialogue added to Yarra's route.
Version 0.14.1
 - Mostly improvements and minor bug fixes.
 - One invisible variable bug fixed. There's a small chance it affects your game, but completionists should still use this one.

Simon's route changes up the format yet again. It's all stable and finished, but there's one piece still missing: sex sprites. I had plans for more, but both commissioned artists and volunteers have not gotten back to me in time. There is a specific area where the implied sex fades to black, just know that I intended to have a sex animation instead. It'll get in eventually.

Expect the next update early January, but this one will be a little different. The next logical plot chunk will be the reunion of the characters, which isn't long compared to the other chapters. So I will use this update to catch up on a wide variety of game improvements that I have been putting off in favor of these routes. This includes one of the top requests so far, so I hope everyone will enjoy it.

There are some notes about this one, but they'll probably change by the public version, so I'm omitting them here.

Year One

A year ago today, I posted the first version of this game. Going to share a few thoughts about that, so if you're looking for game updates, you can skip this one.

Back then, I had no idea if anyone would be interested in the kind of game I wanted to make. And looking back, starting with something as meta as TLS was probably a mistake. But I'm glad to have found so many people who enjoy what I've created!

A lot of things were different then. I was working two jobs, one mediocre and one miserable, and hoped this could at best let me drop the worse one. Now, I'm looking very seriously at doing it full time. Since I'm a cautious person, let's just say fingers crossed for now.

One of the biggest changes during this year was starting Hreinn Games with Nomo. That's moved even faster than TLS, but I suppose I'll save retrospectives there for when it reaches a year old. Suffice it to say, I look forward to what we'll make in the future.

Looking over my progress, I'm fairly happy with how I've stayed on schedule. I didn't plan on all Stineford's quests taking an additional month to complete, but otherwise the game is proceeding according to plan.

Of course, you all know I'm aiming to make something really huge. Almost all the pieces are on the table now, but I'm aiming to bring everything to a satisfying resolution and that will take a while. We'll see where we are in another year's time, but I promise it will be on the other side of a lot of updates. ^-^

Thank you so much for all your support!

Version 0.13.0 Release

New update for patrons! Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

Version 0.13.0:
- Completed Yarra's route.
- Eight new plot sex scenes (this is the succubus route after all).
- New sprite for Estaven, new battlers for Hilstara, the Magekillers, and Tal.

Two things to be alert for, this time. One is that there are a number of events that can be completed in different orders - I think I've designed them so that no order is invalid, but it's possible that there's some combination that will actually cause your game to be stuck.

Another is that there's a section of the game where it might be possible to save in a nearly unwinnable state. I tried to think of a way to redesign this, and considered restricting save access, but in the end everything felt like awkward hand-holding. I don't anticipate the section being too difficult and it's possible to make it far easier by spending Sx on equipment/items, but FYI.

Related, Orcent is a temporary party member this route. I tried to do some different things with his stats so there's less of a story/gameplay divide, but we'll see how it goes. He's not broken, anyway, though his items might be.

For the next while I'll be focused on fixing bugs, then releasing and working on Noxian Nights 0.4.x. This will keep me busy a while, but I hope to begin work on Simon's route before too long.

Version 0.12.2
 - Bugs and typos.

Huge update for everyone! Aka's route takes you high and low in Ari-Yhilina, as you'll soon see. There are a lot of secrets in this one, so have fun figuring those out.

I have most of the planning for Yarra's route done, and I'll hopefully get started as soon as the release is past and I'm less busy.

Friday, October 2, 2015

Version 0.12.0 Release

New update for patrons, but also see notes relevant to everyone at the end of this post. Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

Version 0.12.0
- Completed Aka's route.
- Two new plot sex scenes.
- More battle songs have been added, further differentiating the various types.
- Slight chances to SP balance.

Since I'm done in plenty of time, I figured I'd release at the beginning of the weekend. Hopefully that will work better for all timezones. Paradoxically, though I've had more time than usual to debug, I'm more worried about having missed something. >.<

Anyway, this one is big, bigger than I can finish in an average month. Lots of things to do, and hopefully the effort I put in is rewarding. There are some non-combat sections where I thought, "Oh, this will be a nice little touch" and it ended up being way more complex to execute than I'd planned. This section is the other side of Yhilin you didn't see on your focused trips, so there are quests and secrets galore.

I'm a big believer in gameplay producing the feeling that the story requires. For example, in this chapter, Trin will play a major role but won't seem as under control as before. It's also meant to have a less planned feel, so those of you who like to seek out all your options and consider... keep saves. XD

*Requires RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to be installed. If you don't know what that means, use the first link.

Version 0.11.0
 - Completed Megail's route.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Some edits and new systems (see notes).
Version 0.11.1
 - Cleared up several bugs that led to potential dead ends.
 - The usual polishing, graphical bugs, and typos.

BUG NOTICE: I accidentally left a testing feature in the route splitting area (it looks like Aka). If you talk to her, you'll leap mid-chapter, which will definitely screw things up. So just ignore it until I put out a version with this removed and it will be fine.
EDIT: Newest version has it removed, no other changes.

Many thanks to my backers, who caught some bugs that could have been annoyances. There may be a non-bug issue or two (for example, bounties aren't in the quest log), but since this one is stable and I'm stretched thin, I'll try to resolve those with the next version.

I'm going to focus on finishing the Noxus Nights update and getting properly moved in, then I'll get started on the next route. The vote was pretty strongly for Aka next, so you'll get to see Aka and the mages explore more of Ari-Yhilina next time. ^-^

Moved!

 Hello, all! Wanted to reassure people that I didn’t die on my flight or anything. I’ll try to get to your messages and emails soon.

Jetlag has hit me pretty hard and the internet connection will be unreliable until I get a real router (stupid proprietary ISP thing). Under normal circumstances, I’d want to take a week off to recover and reorganize. But given the present situation, I don’t think that’s a good option. I’d really rather not delay a 0.11.1 that just needs a few fixes, and I don’t want any delays with Hreinn Games since we’ve only just begun to prove ourselves.

So here’s what’s going to happen. TLS 0.11.1 will come out tomorrow, or at least I hope it will. I’ve been awake a lot, often working since my body has decided not to sleep. Then a week after that, Noxus Nights 0.2.0 will come out (more on that over at Hreinn Games).

Once those are done, hopefully my circadian rhythm will be fixed enough that I can iron out my sleep cycle, get fully situated in my new apartment, etc. There may be a delay of a week or so before I start work on Aka’s route. I’m not sure how long this one will take but I’ll keep you informed. Then hopefully once it’s finished I can return to the normal schedule from here on.

Version 0.11.0 Release

New update for patrons, but also see notes relevant to everyone at the end of this post. Version history updated, you know what to do, etc.

Version 0.11.0
 - Completed Megail's route.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Some edits and new systems (see notes).

There's a lot to do in this update, and I'm pretty happy with it, but I don't know how the sidequests will feel. I didn't want to hit players with a lot of extraneous information for minor parts of the game, but I worry that the goals may feel unclear. On the other hand, I also worry it's too easy to sweep the whole set. Let me know, anyway, and I may tweak this in the future.

This would be a good update to keep multiple saves. Nothing important is missable, but some of the sidequests are. The investments also don't make themselves all obvious at the beginning, but they're not available the entire time. This is the feel I want, story-wise, but if you're looking to optimize, save away.

I implemented a new AI system this version (many thanks to Lone Wolf). Hopefully it will make some of these fights interesting in a way you haven't seen before. There's an optional fight I intended to be rough, but I don't know how it will feel when you're going in blind. My hint: enemies that look similar do not have the same strengths and resistances.

Nothing has changed, gameplay-wise, but a previous scene has been expanded. Simon and Carina have a longer conversation now before her first scene, so if you're into characters/lore, you may want to hop back to a previous save. Nothing critical, though.

Unrelated to the game, I have only a few days of work before my job ends. I'll be clearing out a ton of business, packing, cleaning my apartment, and otherwise prepping to leave the country and move. Due to this, I cannot say with complete certainty when I'll be able to do the 0.11.1 public release, or when I can begin work on the next section.


I don't anticipate substantial delays, but I hope getting this update out before I go is a good will offering.

New Project Announcement!

There's a shiny new project to announce! I've been referencing potential collaborations for a while, but it's time for the first one to come to light.

I've replied to a lot of artists interested in collaborating, but the only one to work professionally has been Nomo (see some of his work on HF). The two of us are teaming up to work on some projects that I have high hopes for.

Our first game has a demo basically complete, with multiple sex scenes done. Where I hope we'll really shine, however, is regularly putting out updates with decent amounts of content. We've planned out this first game in detail and it'll be jam-packed with a wide variety of scenes.

We've been working for almost two months, so I'm reasonably confident we can deliver and that I'll be able to continue work on TLS without any delays. Especially after I lose my job and have more time.

The demo will be going up at the beginning of August, but you guys can see a sneak peak of the promo now:

I'd say the formula here is similar to TLS, weighted more toward hentai. We're also keeping the scope much tighter, hoping to knock out a major chunk of the game each month until we finish after several. That's not to sell it short: I think the end result will be able to go toe-to-toe with just about anything in the western market.

And after that, who knows? Well, we do. X3 What I mean to say is that we hope to keep providing high quality games in a variety of different styles and genres and I'm really enthusiastic about what we could do! First, though, we're focused on proving ourselves by getting this game out.

Hope you'll all check it out! Let me know what you think!

Version 0.10.0 Release

Here we go, new update. Version history is updated, notes below, etc.

Version 0.10.0 [7/18/15]
 - New section of the game.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Three new affection sex scenes.

I have mixed feelings about this update. The plot developments turned out
just how I'd hoped, and I'm very happy with the character stuff in this
section, but not so sure about the combat balance. Some areas are fine, but one
is... more complicated. Let me explain.

I had an idea for a new mechanic would have been a really fun change of
pace, but the script I was trying to use failed me. I put some serious effort
into figuring it out with no success - this could be really time-consuming in
the end. Since literally everything else was completely ready, I decided to
redesign the dungeon around a different mechanic. Delaying the release for one
niggling problem wouldn't have felt right. I hope to fix the mechanic later,
but meanwhile let me know about the dungeon in this update since it didn't have
as much time for playtesting as the others.

In addition to that, there's a big battle sequence at the end that's
different than anything that's come before. I went back and forth about how
best to balance it, because I wanted to create the right feeling for the
section while providing a fun challenge of a slightly different sort. Not sure
if I struck the right balance or not, so let me know all your thoughts.

Once you've finished the update... you'll know that there's going to be a
poll for the $10 patrons. I won't put it up right away, let more people finish
the update first. I can't start work immediately, anyway, due to bug reports
and other business I have to take care of.

Anyway, enjoy! ^-^

 - Twenty new affection sex scenes.
Version 0.9.1 [6/27/15]
 - Minor polishing, plus one fadeout bug.

As you can see, this is basically the backer release with some minor improvements. Nothing much new to say about this. I have the basics of 0.10.0 laid out, hope to get deep into it soon. 

Friday, June 19, 2015

Version 0.9.0 Release

I've updated the version history and sent the newest version to backers. There have been a few wrinkles with the new systems, but otherwise it's nice to be on schedule again. ^-^

Version 0.9.0 [6/20/15]
 - New section of the game.
 - Five new plot sex scenes.
 - Twenty new affection sex scenes.

The big thing you probably noticed there is that I managed to finish everybody's affection scenes! It was a bunch of work, but this way no one's favorite character will be under construction. You could edit affection to get them all (honestly, if I was playing I might >.>) but I intend to balance sex content on the assumption that you're slowly earning them over the course of the game.

One word about balance this section: my goals this time were a little unusual. I wanted to give the feeling that the party was stronger, but still give a sense for their limitations. What ultimately matters is that this section is fun to play, so let me know what you think.

Update on the job front: when I lose my job in August, I should be able to transition smoothly into part time work that will tide me over until I can apply for the 2016 semester. Other than the unavoidable time spent moving, I anticipate there won't be much delay in the game. This job is a very good option for me, so once I get housing settled I'll be feeling comfortable again. ^^

Anyway, I think that's all about the game. Hope you guys enjoy the chance to revisit old areas, but with an update this broad there are sure to be some bugs.

Creator Spotlight: Grumby Games

Grumby's game is a rare thing among western adult games: a complete h-RPG! Grumby chose to create a complete game first and expand the middle later, which is a novel choice that maybe some of us could learn from. You may want to check it out if you're one of the people who wanted The Last Sovereign to have more direct character choices or a plot that didn't take itself nearly as seriously. ^-^ Now, I'll turn things over to Grumby:


Hi, Grumby here to talk a bit about Grumby Games and Sexual Kingdom,

Quite a few months ago I started a game with RPG Maker VX ace, it's a simple adventure type game with kind of a strange story, its still a work in progress with new adult content added roughly every month, in the next update I'll be including sex scenes with monsters and other enemies in the game.

So far there are only 3 sex scenes with ecchi type galleries, but that will be changing with future updates. The game will also start to include futa and gay sex scenes(Which are optional).

If you want to try it out you can head over to my blog and download it for free at GrumbyGames.blogspot.com

-

This is the first creator spotlight, but it doesn't have to be the last. Any other creators, if you're interested, contact me. ^^ Simple introductions are fine, but I'm up for exchanges of posts on game design, interview type things, or whatever floats your boat!

Version 0.8.2 [5/22/15]
 - New chapter of the game.
 - Five new plot sex scenes.
 - Five new affection sex scenes.
 - See elsewhere for full list of updates.
 - A multitude of minor fixes/improvements from 0.8.0 and 0.8.1.

This is the public release and official name change! Because I've improved a lot of things behind the scenes, old saves will no longer function, but there are new mechanics, redesigned characters, and added bonuses to make your replay fun! This version should be pretty polished, but there's always a chance I added new bugs at the last second, so let me know.

It's going to take me a little while to update everything, so forgive me if a few links are broken in the meantime. Once that's done and I finally sleep, I'll be diving into version 0.9.0 with the next chapter of the game! ^-^

Version 0.8.0 Changelog

Since version 0.8.0 was effectively a revamp in addition to being a new chapter of the game, I put the complete list of all changes here:

Major Changes
 - Yarra has been redesigned with a major art upgrade.
 - Hilstara and Carina also got art upgrades (increased emotional range and new profile image, respectively).
 - I dropped some money on new tiles, NPCs, and other resources. I want each country to have a different look and feel (as you've probably noticed, I used Mack tiles for Yhilin) and now I should be able to distinguish all of them.
 - A character I planned to introduce later now appears in the prologue. You'll also see some new graphics there, which will be relevant far down the road.

Graphics
 - Game now has a custom title screen and chapter titles.
 - The game now uses custom menus. Nothing fancy, but I think it matches the feel of the game better.
 - Talking to harem members in camp now produces a fancy popup with their information instead of using a text box.
 - Formerly generic NPCs like Ina, Lucy, Kara, and Orcent now have unique sprites and facesets.
 - The shade of Varia's sprite now matches her bust/faceset.
 - A few new facesets now match characters better (for example, succubus leaders no longer use lamia faces).
 - I also gave the Zirantian prostitute and the Givini characters proper non-generator facesets.
 - When traveling on map screens, you now have a movement cursor instead of a normal sprite.
 - Finally got a fog system figured out: maps can now have clouds, fogs, sunlight, and probably many other things. The ones I have may require some tweaking, but I think they make several areas look nicer.
 - Similarly, I'm making better use of VX Ace's weather effects. They don't feel appropriate for too many areas so far, but feel free to leave feedback on this.
 - Did a little remapping to areas that were bland or to make better use of my new tilesets.
 - Massively increased the iconset. This means that all sex skills now have appropriate icons (and some have improved ones). I also changed up some item icons to standardize things (like normal vs heavy armor) and made miscellaneous improvements.

Music
 - We have music that is, if not custom, at least non-default. I'm not going to add what I have recklessly, since it will balloon the file size, but I'll be including new songs as they're needed for added variety.
 - One of those is a new theme song that isn't so heavily used. Hopefully everyone likes it or lets it grow on them, because I really like the feel of it.
 - Battle music now varies. Bosses have a different theme, there's sadder music when you're forced to fight a certain ally, etc.

Gameplay
 - Yarra now presides over a harem management system. Right now it doesn't have a lot of functionality, but it lets you see everyone's profile shots again and keep track of people.
 - There's a quest log system to keep track of all plot and side quests.
 - Sex skills rebalanced, preventing the method that was making combat grindy for some people.
 - Shops now display more information about equipment so purchasing decisions are easier.
 - The text box toggles on and off when you press the Control key.
 - The giver of the mushroom sidequest now takes your mushrooms more efficiently.
 - There's a new battle during the early part of the plot.
 - Robin and Hilstara's exp in Stineford changed slightly. You can still optimize experience, but they won't be as far behind if you get them very late.
 - There are now items that restore SP in combat.
 - New slime enemies provide an optional chance to grind for items.
 - Lots of little notes: Robin/Hilstara comment more in Stineford, story dialogue changes slightly based on optional stuff, etc.
 - Minor balance changes. There's slightly more exp, money, affection points, items, and unique collectibles available than in previous versions.
 - Bunch of minor cosmetic things fixed/improved.

Version History

I'm making a centralized version history since it wastes more time than I expected to update all the threads individually. Dates are written American style: month/day/year.

0.27.0 [5/19/17]
 - Final iteration of Yhilin before the war.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Four new Synergy Skills available if you have enough affection.
 - There are new (retroactive) consequences to researching Dari's condition. Continue a save from the waiting screen to receive your proper benefits.
 - New Uyae conversations around Ari-Yhilina.
 - During previous Yhilin iterations, you can now summon more people to the throne room. No balance changes.
 - New Eustrin mausoleum graphics thanks to Lamsey.
 - Lucy now has more unclothed images during her naked scenes thanks to Bug Reporting.
 - Bug Reporting is also responsible for the adorable succubus children. Expect to see more of them over time. ^-^
 - Various enemy stat changes (mostly for consistency and to remove unintended exploits).
 - Back in Stineford, there's now a visual effect when the door is destroyed.
 - If you invested in the demon-ridden mineshaft, it now appears properly in your investment ledger.
 - The shop in the outskirts can now reopen depending on investments. This is a retroactive change, but doesn't affect balance much.
 - Several quest log items had been neglected, most notably Conquerer. These have been fixed, though your quest log may need refreshing.

Version 0.26.2 [4/28/17]
 - Bugfixes and polishing.

Version 0.26.0 [4/21/17]
 - New section setting the stage in Eustrin and Aram.
 - Two new plot sex scenes.
 - Party switching mechanics implemented in preparation for upcoming content.

Version 0.25.2 [3/17/17]
 - More bugfixes and polishing.
 - Hardcore hugging action added to the reunion section.

Version 0.25.1 [3/11/17]
 - New synergy skill system introduced!
 - The bug with restarting the game via F12 has been fixed.
 - Assorted bugfixes and polishing.

Version 0.25.0 [3/3/17]
 - New iteration of Yhilin.
 - Four new plot sex scenes.
 - Three new affection sex scenes.

Version 0.24.0 [2/10/17]
 - New section of the story, finishing the Zirantian section.
 - One new plot sex scene.

Version 0.23.2 [1/21/17]
 - Some minor polishing, but the real reason I put out a new version is this:
 - Several pots in 0.23.1 that give Zirantian Artifacts can't be interacted with properly. Update to this version to collect them.

Version 0.23.1 [1/20/17]
 - The usual bugfixes and polishing.
 - Additional flavor text added to palace room and the crypt.
 - Thanks to Lamsey for fixing and converting a lot of musical tracks. If you noticed any minor audio glitches before, those should be fixed now thanks to him!
 - Thanks to Decanter, we have a new Fuani sprite that matches her coloring better.
 - Since the "optimize" option does not really optimize in a game with multiple stats on equipment, it has been renamed. Thanks to HarmlessArachnid for volunteering his scripting knowledge, even if it didn't get used in the end. The discussions and contributions of players help me keep polishing all the details. ^-^

If you didn't know, the game used to be named The Last Fucklord. I still think that's hilarious, but I've been convinced that the title was misrepresenting the game: it gets across the sense of humor, but not that I'm trying to create a sophisticated plot, complex characters, and a fully realized world. I kind of miss it, but changing to The Last Sovereign was definitely the right choice.
