I’d like to steal some of your time and briefly talk about the upcoming PE versions ( v0.6x and interim, up to and including v0.7.)
There are a lot of things that weren’t supposed to initially be implemented, but content makes or breaks sandbox games. Writing is one thing, but actually implementing new content takes time if the game systems aren’t present. With this in mind, I need to create many new systems from scratch to accommodate future content development and this starts with v0.61. Players can expect to find staff management, multiple bedroom studios, room upgrades, assigning staff and equipment.
In v0.7, the voted animations will start to kick in (FFM), as well as new more complex girls (NPCs) that are more than glorified dialogues (as prototypes at first to gauge interest).
We also have a first batch of events (which split into 2 categories: short events and snippet events). Short events contain a conversation, an end result and (sometimes) animations, whereas snippet events are simple one line events that trigger and immediately produce a result. The short events will also start to roll out after a number of systems are implemented. The game needs to be populated and we are very aware of that, but it is very hard to do so without developing the tools for doing it.
