House of Hellish Harlots ver 0.018 (new NPC Barman and new harlot Hiru no-Koochi)

The new version of "House of Hellish Harlots" is available for patrons and can be found here:

Here's a list of the new features:

This is the last of the regular House NPCs.  His role is to provide a seamless introduction to the other NPCs.  Later on he will also dispense advice on how to escape the House, but that is to be implemented later.  With his addition that means the basic game framework is now fully written.  The only placeholder material left are the three remaining placeholder harlot scenarios.  There are some optional features I'm thinking of adding later (random events, side quests), but for now the core game framework is fully written.

Just the one new harlot, but she does have a big scenario.  I keep saying I shouldn't make the basic scenarios this long, and then do it anyway.  After seeing how popular Suka no-Hirudo was, especially her 'just one more suck' aspect, I created 'evil' Suka using the leech-tongue succubus from my H-space stories.  She's so nice she'll make that difficult 'one more suck' choice for you.

You'll probably get sucked dry by Hiru a lot.  Her scenario is quite difficult.  She's intended as a late round harlot.  Even if you find the right protection, she'll still give you options that will make sure you never leave her room.  On the positive side, she'll make your time in her room very pleasant.

What isn't in ver0.018.

Cibi, Suffocatrix Mamilla and Sorpresa Ombra still haven't had their charm interactions implemented.  I was hoping to get that done, but it got crunched out when Hiru's scenario ended up being bigger and slower to implement than I was expecting.  I will try to get that done for the next release as well as fix some minor corner case bugs I know exist.

April ended up being a bit of an off month.  I was probably due one to be fair.  That's why there's only one new harlot.  Her scenario is one of the longer ones I've written, so I hope that makes up for it.

This means the proper public demo is going to be pushed back a month.  While the basic game framework is now fully written, there are still 3 placeholder harlots I want to replace.

I know some of you would like to support this, but really don't want to give money to Patreon, and I understand that.  When I put the proper demo out, I'll look at additional funding options.  What I'd like to do is ramp the project up to include decent artwork.  The game will primarily remain text, but Monster Girl Encyclopedia type pictures of the harlots would add a lot to a playing experience.

For now it's just about continually adding new content and growing interest.


  1. Been wondering something, is the Succubus Summoning stuff dead? It has been on hiatus for like several years now.

  2. Based on what he's said on this before, he's mostly been concentrating on House of Hellish Harlots.

    Once the game is in a stable possibly sale-ready state, Many-Eyed Hydra will probably go back to writing stories, provided on his muse cooperating of course.

    1. This, pretty much.

      There are always a lot of things I want to write and in the past I lacked discipline in seeing projects to their conclusion. HoHH is the current project and I want to see it to various checkpoints. Between those checkpoints, I'll look to work on other things for a break, but I want to avoid a repeat of last year, where I lost focus and spent too long on a couple of (long) stories in the middle of it. I've currently found a good rhythm putting out regular updates every month for patrons. I'm hoping to carry that over to regular writing when I switch back.

    2. So we readers can hopefully look forward to a steady stream of stories if things go the way you want them to. That'd certainly be something ti look forward to.

      Also, side note: for some reason, over the past 2 days blogger wouldn't let me get past the disclaimer that shows up on blogs with adult content, and if I kept trying after the 4th or 5th time I'd get an error message and the page would basically 404. Not sure what to make of that.

    3. Something screwy seems to be going on with the domain redirect at the moment. Sometimes I get sent to the standard GoDaddy parked domain page. I'll have to get on to them and find out what's going on. I'll definitely need to do it before I launch the House of Hellish Harlots page.

  3. @M.E. H. did you ever thought about releasing a walktrhough / branching paths of all the choices/scenarios? which token appeals to which harlot, which attitude / charm / gift has extra interactions ect?

    1. I'm hoping that will happen organically with people setting up wikis as with Monster Girl Quest.

      If it doesn't, then it means the project likely failed.

  4. Wasnt this supposed to have a non-patreon version a long time ago?

    1. It's always been a plan. Just taken a while longer to get there...

      I was hoping to have it ready last month once I'd replaced all the placeholder content. I'm still finishing that off with the last 3 harlots (for the demo - there will be a lot more in the completed game). After v0.019 is done and ready I'm hoping to get a web version out (if possible). Sometime in June is provisional for that, depending on how difficult/easy I find setting up the website.

    2. Oh, thanks for the heads up.
