Thanks for your interest in us and Starship Inanna.  Below you can find answers to some common questions.

What is Starship Inanna?

Starship Inanna is a visual novel game being developed by The Mad Doctors in the Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine. At it's core it is a Choose Your Own Adventure style story set in a sci-fi universe akin to Star Trek or Mass Effect.

You take on the role of a Commander of the Titan Empire, who has just been assigned as second in command under Captain Alexandra Zal. The crew of the ship is comprised of select races of the Empire which the player will be able to interact with and have relationships with (that means plenty of sex (if you want it)). There is much to discover as the Inanna begins her adventure to unknown parts of the galaxy.  As Commander you will be sent on missions to different planets where you will encounter new cultures and civilizations.  You will run across slavers, enemy races, omnipotent beings, and more.  The choices you make as the story unfolds will have consequences, some subtle and short term, others may take much longer to play out.

These are the current episodes:

Ho
w much is the game going to be?
The game is available for free, and all future updates will also be free.  There are some Pretron exclusive scenes and galleries, but the base game and the entire main plot is, and will remain, free.

How long is the game?
The game is going to be under continuous development so there's no real way to tell how long it will be when it's finally done, episodes will be of varying length with some longer and some shorter.

What platforms will the game be on?
The game is currently available for Windows, MacOSX, and Linux platforms.

Where can I get the latest release?  Do I need to be a Patreon backer to play?
The most recent public release of the game, as well as credits and forums, are available at StarshipInanna.com.  Patreon backers get exclusive access to the alpha and beta testing builds but final versions are always available on the website for free for everyone to download.

How many people are on the team?
The Mad Doctors comprise of DrMadDoc47 who handles all the writing, programming, website maintenance, marketing, and visual artwork.  Omar manages all the audio production.

Is anyone else working with you?
Yes, we have a few friends and investors who do some play testing of the indev versions, Mrs. MadDoc works as a sounding board for the actual sci-fi side of the story.

Where does the money we pledge go?
Money generated from this Patreon will go support the development of Starship Inanna in the following ways
  • Upgrading computers to support faster and better quality rendering.
  • Buying content to use in the game and art such as environments, props, textures, etc.

Goals
$1,036 of $1,300 per month
Animations & More Staff!  At this goal we'll be able to start bringing some animation into the game thanks to some much needed PC upgrades.  Nothing too extravagant (we don't want to inflate the size of the game too much) but things like moving backgrounds, ship shots, cinemagraphs, and even some sex scenes would benefit greatly from some animation and looping.

Also, at this goal we will be bringing on another writer who is also an editor.  He'll try and punch things up in previous episodes, as well as keep the current episodes flowing and also help with some of the writing.
