v0.18.1 is Live! Get it Here!
UPDATE: v0.18.2 has been released to improve the stability of the new version. It fixes many of the errors and crashes reported in v0.18.1.
Android: Lab Rats 2 v0.182-Android
Lab Rats 2 v0.18.1 has finished it's week of patron bug testing and is ready for it's public release! This new version comes with a hefty change log, with progress along three major fronts. First, Rendering improvements have been made and display methods have been updated, improving clothing and body quality throughout the game. Second, menus and action results have been updated to improve their functionality and player education. Third, new content has been added throughout the game. This new content includes the reintroduction of the Lab Rats 1 character Alexia as well as new dialogue, descriptions, and choices. Across the board the game continues to grow and improve!
Changes to the way character bodies are rendered have eliminated graphical artifacts where the head and body images meet and the image library of character bodies has been re-rendered. Character hairstyles have also been reviewed, with many of the previous hair styles being tweaked to have their contrast or brightness better match the rest of the game. All of these changes are part of an ongoing effort to improve the characters displayed in Lab Rats 2.
Menu functionality and gameplay feedback have received some attention this update. The changes that have been made seek to better inform the player about the results of their actions, as well as to highlight what actions might be possible under different scenarios. The list of sex positions has been changed to highlight the effects of each position will have on a girls corruption, as well as display what positions are possible only due to obedience or are blocked by clothing. The basic work tasks have been updated to display how much you individually produce, and when hovered the tasks now display what stats and skills are important for them. Unhelpful menu options have been trimmed from the game to keep the gameplay choices as clear as possible.
The last and perhaps the most exciting changes, new content has been added throughout the game. Alexia from Lab Rats 1 has been reintroduced, coming back into your life after a year of travel to "find herself". Her personal storyline, which will receive further content in future updates, prompted the addition of relationship statuses for all girls. Some women may already be in a steady relationship or married when you meet them, and corrupting them is more difficult. There is also new content inside of the sex system in the form of condoms. Some girls may ask or demand you put on a condom before having sex. Others, especially as you corrupt them and they become more slutty, may ask you not to use one and to fuck them raw.
I hope you enjoy the update!
