TLS 0.34.0 Released!

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

TLS 0.34.0

New Content:
 - New section of the plot.
 - Four new plot scenes, six new affection scenes.
 - Uyae can join the harem.
 - If you did the transformation research, Dari can finally be cured. With enough relationship points, she can also join.
 - Bar miniquest. Visiting most bars in the game will trigger an Orcent conversation (nine added).

Changes:
 - The requirements to max Iris have changed. She is now locked at 99 until you have invested a significant amount in the Chalice States. If you already maxed her in the past, there will be no change.
 - Riala now comments on the current research project.
 - The head Unsuccubus reports on your base's stats.
 - Thanks to Lamsey, there is an updated map of Arclent showing the new nations! You can find it in the teleportation room.

I wanted to get Ouroboros out on Steam, but that's not happening yet. I don't want to delay TLS unnecessarily, so I'm putting 0.34.0 out now. I should note upfront that I worry about 0.35.0 taking longer than normal, but meanwhile, please enjoy this update! This one answers some questions that people have been wondering about for a while.

But I know people really play this game for the hawt, sexy philosophical discussions. I finally implemented a miniquest where visiting various bars around the world with Orcent will give scenes that include spicy personal reflections, naughty character development, and taboo theological discussions. Get it now before Patreon bans me!

  1. Lucky I max Iris already. So you can't change the dragon statue to be facing each other how about the gargoyles?

    Also this update was fast. Well I can't play cause I'm poor.

    1. Can I buy oroboros on other site and get an activation key for steam.

      Delete
    2. The large statues, no. Small statues could in theory get flipped versions.

      Verifying purchases on other sites seems like it would lead to issues. I do give Steam keys to patrons, if that's what you mean.

      Anyway, hope you enjoy the release when you play!

    1. Ah, sorry, that part was a joke about Patreon banning me for the conversations. =P Hopefully I will not have any problems with them for a long time to come!

    2. Patreon poicies is getting harder and harder for creators.

    3. I could see Simon and Robin's relationship being something that patreon gets upset about. Hopefully it's something that doesn't attract their ire.

      Delete
    4. Their family connection is only on paper, Robin was a post-war orphan adopted by Simon, not related. That's nothing compared to all the Succubi whom the first person they sleep with is their parents.

    5. Patreon is unfortunately rather inconsistent with its policies, apparently following patterns only to break them later. I know a lot of people have already maliciously reported me, and they haven't hit me yet, but it's possible they just haven't gotten to me.

      Dealing with these kinds of environments is an unfortunate fact of being a NSFW creator. That's part of the reason I'm trying to better defend myself against this during 2018 and make sure I can finish TLS even in negative scenarios.

  3. I had a hunch. Glad I chose the Dari research.

    Just out of curiosity, what is a "significant amount" of investment in the Chalice States?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not a set number, but rather any combination of investments or quests that lead the overall variable for the Chalice States to increase past a certain point.

  4. Ahhhh... Philosophical discussions are my fetish!

    1. Regardless, thank you very much for your support! You also picked a good month if you want Ouroboros - reply to me on Patreon for that. ^-^

  7. I've tried playing TLS with a controler thanks to you mentioning it in the last post, and I'm suprised I didn't try it earlier.
    It's more comfortable than keyboard, but may I suggest switching text skipping from L to R?
    Or switching quest journal to another free button for that matter, because as now L doubles for that two inputs.
    On keyboard you also have ctrl for skipping, but on controler I often opened the quest journal after skipping, which can be irritating after a while.

    1. Thanks for the feedback! Honestly, I don't hear much from people playing on controller, so it's nice to know someone is getting some use out of it. I will definitely consider this suggestion.

      Delete
    2. I've been using an Xbox controller for a while now. I use a program called Keysticks to allow me to use the D-pad (by default, VX Ace only seems to support the analogue stick), and I've also bound text-skipping to the right trigger. Sadly, Keysticks isn't free, but IIRC it's pretty cheap.

  8. I need to give out a huge compliment. I have been playing erotic games (text based and otherwise) for years now and never had this much fun with ALL aspects of a game. The economic side is well rounded and not tedious instead it feels like a fun little minigame with worthwile consequences in the world. the erotic content is spot on for text based games. the characters.... FFS i never had so much fun with npcs! Well rounded mentalities reasonable motivations and so refreshingly deep backgrounds. I have 2 very small suggestions: 1. The erotic scenes could sometimes use a better ending. For example the Iris "Meeting" scene is so damn hot but then abruptly cuts out. It might be intentional to stimulate the imagination of the reader but it will feel a little anticlimactic to some. (not critic just something to think about if that effect is not intentional)
    2 I dont know how popular this would be with other people. But i do feel like the "generic" succubi could use a little love. As in for example an option to have some fun with some of them. especially the elite proto-unsuccubus in the base. (again just something to think about. would love me some of those generics ;) )
    With best wishes and may no obstacles prevent you from bestowing such and awesome game/story/adventure to us.

    1. Thanks, glad you've enjoyed the game so much!

      I hear what you're saying on the feedback, we'll see how things go moving forward. For generic succubi, I'm not sure how much more you'll see of them. But there IS a scene planned for a minor character soon!

    2. By the way. What is your opinion on theology? As i unterstand from your writing in the game you think a lot like me in being an Atheist (Not believing in things for which there is no evidence) and are in opposition to people who try to force their imaginary reality upon other people.

      If you need help in any way i would like to offer that.
      Ben

    3. I usually like to speak on serious issues through my work, but it's no secret that I'm not religious.

      Thanks for the offer of help! I'm just glad to have people playing and enjoying my games, though. ^-^

      Delete
    4. With Pleasure. Even though my offer was a serious one in case you need some random npc conversations or other non important stuff that just consumes time, i expected you to decline since i can assert that these offers come far too often and mostly from ppl with some kind of agenda or goal.

      In any way. Keep making awesome content. TLS is THE best game for me and triumphs over any game i have played so far. This naturally includes AAA titles and dozens of rpg games be it erotic ones or otherwise.
      Best wishes, Ben

  9. I've played the games 2 times already, to different points because of updates, granted, but I'm loving it.
    Please tell me it'll be eventually available in steam as your other works.

    1. Eventually! Maintaining an ongoing game on Steam would be a huge pain due to their censorship policies, but when the game is complete I will seriously consider uploading it there as well.

  10. Hi Sierra. Why do you want to put out Ouroboros from Steam? And what is your next game for Steam?

    1. It has been one of the biggest requests from both patrons and fans - I think a lot of people prefer to have all their games gathered in one place. And while an old game probably won't sell much there, it doesn't hurt to be less reliant on Patreon.

      My next new Steam release will probably be a light side project I've been working on, dipping my toe into a new genre. Sometime in 2018, I think.

      Delete
    2. What new genre? Space genre? :D

      Delete
    3. I want to do scifi eventually, but not yet. Sorry, you'll have to wait a little bit for me to announce this one officially!

      Delete
    4. What about: High School, Modern, Martial Art, Demon, other dimension Theme in one game?

      Delete
    5. You won't see many high school settings from me. Demons, modern elements, and other dimensions are fine. And I like martial arts - you will probably see something with strong elements of this eventually!

      Delete
  11. Your dedication to this project is inspiring. And it's so good!
