It's finally time to release 0.25. We spent a lot of time on it, so we hope you'll enjoy our work. If you haven't seen our previous posts, here's the gist of what you'll see in the update:
0.25 revolves around the new massage office in Julia's fitness club. To unlock the new content, you will need to meet the requirements we wrote in the quest log. This time, the massage questline will be pinned to the top of the quest log for your convenience. As usual, you can check it if you get stuck.
We finally unlocked the fitness club. Now Kate can visit it, meet Jessica (Julia's friend at the reception), and start learning how to be a masseuse.
There is a long series of events with Lien, Julia, Alice, and especially Max. Finishing the storyline will unlock periodic events with several options.
As you probably know, we spent about 50% more time on this update, so it's no surprise it has about 50% more content, too. Usually we don't have enough time to add everything we planned, but this time, once it was clear we will blow the deadline because of the Corona virus, we've decided to roll with the punches and doubled down on the amount of content. Update was going to be released late anyway, might as well make it as big as possible, right?
We don't want to delay the update into the next month for anyone, so this time the delays between the releases will be smaller than usual:
Today is April 21st, the release date for $40 Patrons. (Kinda sounds like we're letting you out from the prison, but you know what we mean)
Three days later, on 24th, 0.25 will become available for our $20 Patrons.
Another two days later, on 26th, yada yada $10 Patrons.
And after another two days, on April 28th, our $5 Patrons will get the access to the 0.25 update. Offline version for the 0.24 will become available on the same day.
As always, your client will update to version 0.25 automatically (including images).
If you don't have a client installed on your device, you can download it from here.
Automatic updates should work as usual, but if you want you can download a build with all images from here.
P.S.: Some time ago we mentioned about our lead programmer working on the offline version of the game on a new engine. We're happy to say the new version is almost done. It's basically working already, but we still have to work our some kinks like fonts and stuff. The new version should be much faster than the current one.
If we don't lose too much money from the pirated version, we would like to move on to the offline version as the main version of the game. Fingers crossed, we really don't want to lose our jobs in this market :)
But we won't have to worry about piracy until we actually finish the new version. For now, it's time to release 0.25. Have a good time!
