Version 0.013 of House of Hellish Harlots is out.
This release introduces 3 new harlots to the House:
Sorpresa Ombra - A lamia that likes smothering men with her boobs.
Zuripai Suponji - A large succubus that gives a full-body paizuri service.
Cibi Somnia - A sleepy sheep girl that likes to cuddle and give relaxing massages.
All three are slightly tricky and will likely kill you a few times before you figure them out. Sorpresa Ombra in particular is designed as a mid-to-late round harlot. She is survivable, but has some fairly narrow and cryptic requirements. Cibi's scenario might also come as a bit of a surprise. I was talking about going back to simple scenarios and Cibi's, as you'll find out, has a lot of player interactivity. Weirdly, I also found her fairly quick to write, type up and implement, so the productivity problems I did struggle with for a while are not in creating this type of scenario. I did try to make her nice and friendly and non-threatening... and failed utterly as I'm helplessly addicted to horror. Sorry.
There are also some other additions that were done a while ago before I switched to working on short stories for a couple of months to recharge my batteries.
One is hopefully a bugfix to the slowdown problem people were reporting.
The other is a revamp to the gifts. Under the hood I switched everything to just use a reference to the gift Id rather than gift object to be more efficient. The other change was to group gifts into categories and have some harlots only care about the category rather than specific gifts. It only affects a few harlots, but it should open up a few more options in the future.
Yeah, this is the first update in six months. I was shocked myself when I realised it. That little digression when I went off to write short stories for various Literotica competitions was much longer than I thought. Anyway, I'm back on this now and with another 5 harlot scenarios written and ready to be implemented, hopefully I can get this project back on track again.
Currently, this is still a Patreon exclusive. I want all the NPCs in place and enough harlots for it to be playable before I put a proper public alpha out. If you want to keep up with the progress, please support me here. It only costs $1 (+ tax) a month to grab all the previous builds plus various short stories.
