Harlot Art - Broinn and Ciùin Mùchadh

The art previews for House of Hellish Harlots keep coming.

This is the dominatrix fairy pair of Broinn and Ciùin Mùchadh.  They are affiliated with the Sanctum of Strangulated Sighs and just love putting the 'bug uns' in their place.

(Just don't ask how they smother people...)




You can play with her (and others) in the text-only demo over on houseofhellishharlots.com.  I'm still working on the version with art and hope to have a demo out soon.

Art is by Marwmellow.  You can find more of his art over on DeviantArt.

These commissions are funded by my 5$ and higher patrons and subscribers on Patreon and SubscribeStar (and me to cover the shortfall :D).  If you like the look of how the project is progressing, please consider signing up.

Harlot Art - Osculia Suffocati

And the art reveals continue weekly.

Today it's time to show off another suffocatrix from the Sanctum of Strangulated Sighs.  This is the 'dark queen' Osculia Suffocati.  She has a kiss that will take your breath away.



You can play with her (and others) in the text-only demo over on houseofhellishharlots.com.  I'm still working on the version with art and hope to have a demo out soon.

Harlot Art - Soffocaria Gattagrandi

I'm speeding up the pace of showing these off, so expect new art every week for the next few months (and I still won't be able to reveal all of them before the upcoming demo - I have that many harlot pieces now!).

This is Soffocaria Gattagrandi.  You will perform cunnilingus on her or else!

Soffocaria is a suffocatrix from the Sanctum of Strangulated Sighs.  If you like oxygen, do as she says.





You can play with her in the (currently text-only) demo on houseofhellishharlots.com.

The artist is Marwmellow.  A big thank you to my patrons over on Patreon and Subscribestar for providing the financial help so I can add art to what was a text-only project.

I'm currently bogged down with writing the bigger 'mini-boss' scenarios.  Public updates have been paused until I start to get them out.  (Hopefully soon!)

Harlot Art - Asphya

Testing is going pretty well with the updated HoHH1.5 demo (the version with art).  That means I need to speed up the frequency of art reveals.

Here is Asphya.  She's one for the heavy rubber fetishists.  I hope she hits the spot.




This is the same Asphya from the aborted Okasare Kenny writing project from a few years back (which I'm still hoping to go back to at some point).  It's nice to finally give her a new home (even if she isn't the easiest to write!).

You can play with her in the public demo over on the houseofhellishharlots.com website.  This is currently text-only, but I am hard at work updating everything to have art.

The artist is Marwmellow, who's been doing some great work for me in drawing all these harlots.  You can find more of his sexy monster girls and other art over on DeviantArt.

I'm currently using both Patreon and SubscribeStar to fund the commissioning of this art.  If you like what you see, please consider supporting me.  Higher tier subscribers currently get to see the art early as well as detailed posts on the harlots' lore and background.

Harlot Art - Tete Khantu

You might have noticed there haven't been updates to the public version of House of Hellish Harlots for a couple of months.  This is because I'm currently working on the 'mini-boss' scenarios and they're a bit longer and more complex than the regular ones (and I also started a short story that's a little longer than first anticipated).

Thankfully, some of the art I commissioned for the harlots has now been out long enough for me to start revealing it to the general public, so I still have some cool things to show off.

Here is the lethal boob smotherer Suffocatrix Tete Khantu.  Her tits are lethal weapons and she just loves using them to suffocate the life out of a helpless man.





You can "play" with her over on the houseofhellishharlots.com website.  Be warned, the scare quotes are apt for this one.  Not many get to leave her room afterwards, although they enjoy their time with her.

Artist is Marwmellow.  More of their work can be found here.  They're currently doing a great job in depicting the various sexy inhabitants of the House.

If you wish to see more harlot art, I currently have $5 tiers and higher to help fund it on both Patreon and SubscribeStar.  I'm still in the middle of testing the Tier 1 harlots for a 1.5 version of HoHH that is more than just plain text.

Harlot Art - Ygolia Campbell

Here is more art of harlots from the game project I'm currently working on.

This is Ygolia Campbell, a lust daemon that likes to roleplay as a femme fatale spy (despite being more dangerous on account of being a... well... daemon).





Artist is marwmellow.  More of their work can be found here.

You can play with Ygolia over here on the houseofhellishharlots website.

March is shaping up to be another month without an update.  I'm currently working on the mini-boss scenarios and they're a bit longer and more complex to write.  I'm also working on the HoHH 1.5 version which will include all this lovely art.

Harlot Art - Bebi Ansikt-Sitta

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I've been commissioning art of harlots for my current game project: House of Hellish Harlots.

Here is the adorably naive facesitting specialist, Bebi Ansikt-Sitta.




If you wish to play with her, you can find her over on the houseofhellishharlots.com website, where she has a full scenario in the public demo version of the game.  It's a text-only Twine game for now. I am currently working on a more advanced version with art.

To help fund the commissions, I created additional $5 and $10 tiers on Patreon and SubscribeStar.  As a reward they get to see the artwork earlier.  I also give them the original scripts to read as well as a full rundown on the background and inspiration behind each character.  This extra financial support is much appreciated as otherwise I'd struggle to get all the characters done (HoHH has over 75 harlots currently).

Once the period of timed exclusivity is up, the plan is to post the pictures publicly to help promote the House of Hellish Harlots game project.  We've now reached the end of that first period, so it's time to start showing off some harlot art.

I hope you like her!

The artist is Marwmellow.  You can find more of their work on deviantart here.

House of Hellish Harlots v0.052 (Nicolette)

I've updated the public version of House of Hellish Harlots to v0.052.  This adds another harlot from one of my old stories... sort of.

Nicolette
Okay, let's be honest.  It's Nicole from my stories... kind of.

Nicole is a popular character of mine.  However, while I've been able to sneak other characters in, I know most of Nicole's back story and have very specific plans for her in future stories, and there are quite strong lore-specific reasons why she can't be here.  To get around that, I've added Nicolette, a suspiciously similar expy.  I didn't want that to be too lazy, so I've also snuck in a few little lore tidbits to explain what's going on.

As for the scenario.  It's fairly straightforward, being a rewrite of some of Nicole's waterbed scenes in "Locked in with a Succubus".  Unfortunately, I didn't realise how much I'd have to deviate from that, and - as I've found with some of the H-space bestiary updates - sometimes trying to edit and alter an existing story can be fiddlier than just writing something new from scratch.

The scenario isn't very complex to play through.  Nicolette in-universe fangirls over Nicole, and shares a lot of her attitude and mannerisms because she wants to be like her.  To get around that, it's a fairly long and detailed sex scene (about 6K words).  Like Nicole, Nicolette also likes to give men a thorough pampering.

Her scenario also serves a mechanical purpose within the game.  As to what that is, I'll leave it to players to discover.

You can have fun with her here:
https://houseofhellishharlots.com/

Patrons and subscribers are a couple of releases ahead.  I'm back to my regular end-of-month release schedule, so they had v0.054 yesterday.  That release also adds a 'beneficial' harlot.  Friesya Holstun is a buxom and sexy cow girl nurse-in-waiting, and her scenario features lactation, a nursing handjob, and - of course - lots of big boobs.

I've also been getting a lot of art commissioned of the harlot characters, and have been previewing it for higher tiers as part of an ongoing Harlot Spotlight series.

If you like what you of the project, please consider helping to fund it at Patreon or SubscribeStar

Harlot Art - The Madam (2)

Here is some more House of Hellish Harlots art.  Not commissioned by me this time.  You have Atlantis27 to thank for this one.  He commissioned Thraeh for another piece of the House's boss, The Madam, and kindly allowed me to share it here.





There's a nice baroque style to this, which fits for The Madam.  She's been around for a very long time, but is still elegantly gorgeous.

I'm still intimidated by the prospect of writing her scenario.  It's going to need to be special to do her justice.

Anyway, until then, I hope you like the art.  Thank you to Thraeh for creating it, and Atlantis27 for commissioning it and kindly allowing me to share here.

You can find more of Thraeh's art on his DeviantArt here.  There are a couple more HoHH pieces Atlantis27 has had commissioned, including more of The Madam.

House of Hellish Harlots v0.051 (Sister Squeeze)

New Year and new update to House of Hellish Harlots!

Version 0.051 adds a requested character from my short stories.  This adds a harlot scenario featuring Sister Squeeze from my old short story "Squeezed".

Sister Squeeze
Her speciality is sexy roleplay.  It's a comic book superheroes and villains roleplay.  Sister Squeeze roleplays the sexy femme fatale villainess.  She'll either let the player defeat and "punish" her, or defeat and dominate them.

The wrinkle is that Sister Squeeze has actual powers and they're pretty dangerous.

Going behind scenes, what started as a straight rewrite of her story sex scene ended up being a little more complex.  When working out her mechanics, I didn't know whether to make Sister Squeeze an early round Tier 1 harlot, or a much more dangerous late round Tier 3.  In the end, the spot I needed to fill was in the Tier 1 bracket and I felt it fit her personality better.  However, if the player is unlucky, they can get her Tier 3 version, and probably won't survive it.

(As always, if you'd like to see her Tier 3 version, you can always bring her a Black Rose.  This might be the scenario where it has a real use.)

Working on her background was fun.  Is this the same Sister Squeeze as the story?

Maybe.  I worked some lore in to make it work if needed.  I'm still not sure whether I want to bring that story into the wider universe.  This might be the same Sister Squeeze, or it might be a very similar character with the same name.  I'll leave my options open.

You can check out the new version here:

Patrons and subscribers are still roughly a couple of releases ahead.  I got knocked off schedule Oct/Nov and I'm gradually getting back to normality.  They received v0.052 with Nicolette on Christmas Day and will be getting a new one with the 'forbidden smotherer' in a few days.

I'm also still hard at work on a newer version of HoHH that isn't just basic text.  I've commissioned a bunch of art of the various harlot characters and have been teasing it on Patreon and SubscribeStar.  If you like what you see of the project so far, please consider supporting me there so I can continue working on it.

I put up a public post yesterday with my plans for the year.

I hope 2024 will be great for everyone!

House of Hellish Harlots v0.050 (Toxina Luxú-Sapo)

The public version of House of Hellish Harlots has been updated to v0.050.  This adds one new harlot scenario.

Toxina Luxú-Sapo
Toxina loves a good sexy wrestle in the mud.  She is, however, the 'poison frog' harlot, so special care must be taken while playing with her...

Toxina is pretty tough.  She's maybe one of the harder Tier 3s.  She'll probably kill you a lot, but at least it will be fun.

You can check out the new version here:
https://houseofhellishharlots.com/

October and November were a little messy as I'm also working on the upgraded version of HoHH with graphics.  I'm a little late with scheduled updates there.

Patrons and Subscribers received the delayed v0.051 release a few days ago.  This adds Sister Squeeze from my short story "Squeezed" as a new harlot scenario.  As with the pre-existing characters like Eve Satana and Acarina, her scenario is a mix of new material and rewritten old material.

I'm hoping to get "November's" release out mid-December and then get back to regular schedule at the end of December.

Commissioning artwork of harlots is going well.  I have art of most of the 'smother' faction now.  To aid me funding it, I've created additional $5 and $10 tiers on Patreon and SubscribeStar.  Subscribers to that tier will get an early look at the new art as well as access to my original scripts and a deep dive into the lore background and inspiration behind each harlot.  Support at this level is to help me convert HoHH to a proper indie game with artwork, and is much appreciated.

I'm still trying to get back on top of things, so might be a little slow in responding to comments.  I hope you enjoy the new release and have fun wrestling Toxina.

Harlot Art - Suffocatrix Assphyxia

I've been getting artwork of harlots commissioned as I look to take House of Hellish Harlots away from being a text-only game and give it actual graphics.

Here is the bootylicious Suffocatrix Assphyxia.



Artist is Marwmellow.  You can find more of their work on DeviantArt here.

To help fund commissioning all this art (there are 75 harlots in the House currently and the final number will be around 100), I've created higher Patreon tiers ($5 and $10).

As a reward for subscribing at this tier, patrons will get a first look at the new art as it comes in as well as access to the raw scripts and my behind-scenes thoughts on both the lore of the character as well as some insight in how I came to write them.

The first harlot in the spotlight is the adorably naive facesitting specialist, Bebi Ansikt-Sitta.  Here's a little teaser of her art.



The full version can be seen on Patreon here.

(I'm hoping to have it also up on SubscribeStar later this week.)

Yes, I know there is a heavy amount of Patreon shilling going on in this post.  But in this case virtually all of the higher-tier money is going towards paying for art for every harlot character in House of Hellish Harlots.

House of Hellish Harlots v0.049 (Squidgii and Squishii)

The public version of House of Hellish Harlots has been updated to v0.049.  This adds a new harlot scenario:

Squidgii and Squishii
This is an adorable and cuddly pair of creamy slime girls.  As with Brittnee they're meant to balance out the more sinister femme fatale succubi in the House.  Unlike Brittnee, they're Tier 3 and very dangerous.  They're probably going to kill you a lot before you figure them out.  On the other hand, they're completely devoted to giving out pleasure, so their victims at least get a very pleasant Bad End before being ended.

You can check them out on the public version here:

I'm currently in the middle of upgrading HoHH to add graphics, art and a more typical game UI.  Converting the scenarios over is keeping me busy at the moment, hence the single-harlot releases.  I'm starting to get art in of the various harlots.  I'm looking forward to revealing that, but it will likely be through Patreon/SubscribeStar first as I need to raise the money to fund the art commissions.

As always, if you like the look of the project, please consider supporting me on Patreon or SubscribeStar.

I'm also aware I've been a little slow at replying to comments the past couple of weeks.  I will get to them, I'm just juggling a lot of stuff at the moment! :D

House of Hellish Harlots v0.048 (Brittnee)

This is a slightly awkward one.

The public version of House of Hellish Harlots has been updated to v0.048.  You can play it here:
https://houseofhellishharlots.com/

It's slightly awkward because the new harlot added is... Brittnee, who you might have already seen in the public experimental demo.

When I was putting that together, I decided to take three harlots from each faction (plus Morticia), so the selection algorithm could work for 3 rounds without breaking.  The criteria for picking those harlots was was, in order, 1) they had artwork, 2) were Tier 1 easy harlots, and 3) had scenarios where the code was straightforward and easy to port over.

Brittnee fit 2) and 3) pretty well, so into the experimental release she went.  What I'd forgotten is that I'd only just put her out for the patreon/subscribestar release, and she hadn't had her public debut yet.  Never mind.  Schedules are schedules.  I hope you don't mind this month's release being on the anticlimactic side.

Currently my work is split between adding new content and porting existing content over to the newer HoHH1.5 version with fancy backgrounds, portraits, and (some) harlot pinup art.  As a result, I'm still in single-harlot release mode for new releases.

Yesterday, subscribers on Patreon and SubscribeStar received v0.050.  This adds the new 'poison frog' harlot, Toxina Luxú-Sapo.  She likes a sexy mud wrestle.

If you like what I'm doing and wish to support the project, please check out my Patreon and SubscribeStar pages.  I sometimes put out the odd new short story as well.

It also allows me to do nice things like commission art of the characters for the game, some of which I'm hoping to show off sometime this month.

House of Hellish Harlots v0.047 (Mistress Eve Satana)

The public version of House of Hellish Harlots has been updated to 0.047.  You can play it here:
https://houseofhellishharlots.com/

This is a bit of a special release as it adds Mistress Eve Satana, the succubus from my short story "The Biggest Tits in the World".  She's a special case compared to the others.  She's a visiting succubus and doesn't have a room, so she'll invite the player to join her for a very special stage show.

Just don't get too absorbed in admiring her lovely big tits...

I had to make a few code changes to the core module to account for her scenario not taking place in her room, as well as a tweak to The Elegant Woman's code for... reasons...

I should note this is still the plain-text version of HoHH.  I did a ton of work in August on the new version with graphics.  The core code for that is now in place and tested.  I still need to port all the existing harlots across.  Once I've caught up, I'll switch over to the new fancy version.  The current demo (with 16 harlots and some art) can be played under the 'experimental' tag.

If you like what you see and wish to support future development of the project, I have a Patreon and SubscribeStar.

Supporters get an early look at new releases.  I gave them v0.049 yesterday, which adds the lovable slime girl pair, Squishii and Squidgii.

House of Hellish Harlots - Mid-2023 Roadmap pt2

(Pt 1, covering the writing, is here.)

We're getting near the end of August, so I thought I'd drop part 2 of my mid-2023 roadmap for House of Hellish Harlots.  The first concerned the writing left to do, which originally was all HoHH was going to be.  Since then I've experimented with Twine enough to improve the display and add art.  It now looks closer to a regular game.  Despite this, text will be the focus, and the project will remain 'words words words' plus the occasional picture to brighten things up.

This is what I think I need to do, or rather commission other people to do:

ART
This can be divided into 5 areas:
- Title Screen + Logo
- UI
- Harlot pinup art
- Character Portraits
- Backgrounds

TITLE SCREEN
I have some ideas - either the exterior of the House, or maybe curtains across the stage.  Either way, I'll need to find an artist for it.  I tried the AI art approach... and it wasn't good.  One option could be to reuse harlot art.  A lot of DLSite games take this approach where they cut and paste a mob of sprites from the game on the cover.  I need a background and I need some nice titles spelling out the name of the game.

UI
This is the collection of icons at the top left of the screen (and top right, if you're playing on mobile).  It displays various player stats ('health', round number, money) as well as buttons to bring up the character sheet or sav/load menu.  I cobbled it together out of various bits of AI art.  It's functional and does the job of presenting that information to the player, but it isn't good.  Getting someone to redo the art and integrate it all within a nice panel (maybe curtains, maybe a batwing) is a high priority.

HARLOT PINUPS
If I had infinite money and resources, the ideal version of HoHH would have animations for every different sex act carried out by every harlot.  Sadly, I don't have infinite money and resources.  HoHH also has a lot of characters, way way more than a typical hentai monster girl game.  What I'm going to try to do is commission a single pinup for each harlot.  Even that will likely be expensive as HoHH will probably end up with around 100 harlots.  I've put enough funds aside to start the ball rolling, but will likely need to look for additional funding at some point to avoid being left dangerously out of pocket.  Any suggestions there welcome.  Maybe higher subscription tiers?  An adopt-a-harlot push for patrons/subscribers to directly fund their favorites?

I have started negotiations here with an artist for the first pieces.  Fingers crossed that will prove fruitful.

CHARACTER PORTRAITS
This is one area where AI art seems to be fine.  Female NPCs will get overhauled when I commission pinups for their scenarios.  I might just leave the car NPCs and Portly Gentleman as is.

BACKGROUNDS
Backgrounds is also an area where the AI art is adequate.  Ideally I'd like to replace them with proper art, and might need to do this if I want to put the game on Steam.  It will come down to resources.  I'd rather focus the limited funds on creating nice harlot art, especially as the backgrounds will likely be more expensive to commission.  If fundraising goes really well, and there's money left over, maybe...

OTHER
There are also a few other potential areas to add art/graphics.  This would be for the vendor NPCs - charms, potions and ailment cures.  It would be better if the player was selecting from a point'n'click shelf of icons rather than a list of text.  The same is true for gift selection before entering the harlot's room.

I have some ideas there and might experiment.  I put these as weak maybes.  Maybe for a hypothetical HoHH 2.

SOUNDS?
Music and sound fx is something I haven't put much thought to.  Maybe the stock ejaculation sound.  Maybe some ambient background noise.  Maybe the same stock music every RPGMaker monster girl H-game seems to use.

I'm not going to put any thought to it for now.  If the game project starts shaping up to be good enough for something like a Steam release, I probably should add some sounds and music.  Everything else is a higher priority at the moment, so it's off the table until it needs to be on the table.

CODING
The core game logic is pretty much all in place.

What might be needed is a bit of optimisation and polish - for instance delaying showing text of a new area until the background jpg has finished loading in.  I'll try to figure this out myself, but at some point might need to get an expert in to iron out the last wrinkles.

I might also need a second pair of eyes when it comes to packaging the game up as a game on Steam or app on mobile.  That's uncharted territory for me, and I'd be terrified of fucking up something basic.

Anyway, that's an approximate roadmap for the fancier parts of HoHH.  The ideal goal is a fully complete game I can release on Steam/DLSite.  However, I'm also aware a lot of monster girl hentai games have big ambitions and then end up becoming bogged down and never finishing.  If I feel I'm out of my depth and it's not something I can realistically do, I'll pare it back down to a simple text project with the odd picture to brighten things up.

This is a little vaguer as it covers aspects I'm not going to be in personal control of.  If you want clarification or further details, ask away below.

And if you'd like to support the project, you can on Patreon or SubscribeStar.  It's a big game project, but I hope people can see I've got a clear plan, clear end goal, and have consistently posted regular updates over the last couple of years.

House of Hellish Harlots 1.5 - v0.001 demo

After a fairly intensive month of so of hacking html, css, js, and Twine, I finally have a playable demo of House of Hellish Harlots ready.

This is pretty much similar to the early demos I put out for the plain-text version.  The demo stops after 3 rounds and there are only 16 harlots for now.  The main difference is that each part of the House has its own background art, each NPC has a portrait and some harlots have pinup art I'm borrowing from old commissions.  There is also a rudimentary UI panel cobbled together from chunks of AI art.  It's the same text and underlying core mechanics, but presented in a better way.



The art is all placeholders at the moment.  The portraits and backgrounds are serviceable.  The harlot art is great, but was not originally commissioned for this purpose, so don't get too attached to it.  The UI is admittedly terrible and one of the first things I'm looking to overhaul.

It is playable, but might be a little rough in spots, especially on mobile devices.

I'm also regretting not giving it a proper title screen.  Unfortunately, I wasn't happy with the interim attempts and wanted to get the demo out there.  As with the UI elements, getting a proper artist in and commissioning a nice 'cover page' is a very high priority.



While it is a sideways step in some respects, it doesn't take long to port the existing harlots across (I did the 16 here in just over a week).  It shouldn't take too long to bring the other 60 across and push the playable round count up.

Then there is the longer (and expensive!) step of commissioning artists to bring the characters to life with a 'pinup' piece for each harlot.

Have a play with the demo here:
https://houseofhellishharlots.com/experimental/

I'd love to hear your feedback below.

House of Hellish Harlots - Mid-2023 Roadmap pt1

I posted this earlier this morning on Patreon and SubscribeStar, then switched it to public, then thought I might as well post it here.

Time to take stock of where I'm at with House of Hellish Harlots.  I figured I'd put a couple of roadmaps, one focusing on the writing side of things (which I'll be doing) and the other on plans for art and other assets (which I'll need to outsource and pay for).

First off with the writing and this is going to focus on the harlots.

Regular Harlots
Currently there are 74 harlots completed and present in the House, some with multiple scenarios.

There are 8 regular harlot slots left to fill.  Of those, one is a repeat scenario (Assphyxia), two are in progress (poison frog, forbidden smotherer), and two are roughly planned out (Sister Squeeze, a wide-eyed 'waif' succubus).

That leaves 3 slots.  Two of those I'm thinking of throwing open to patron polls to give an existing harlot in the faction (sensuality and classic) a repeat visit and different scene.  That leaves one slot open in the 'classic succubus' faction.  I'll fill that once I get a cool idea that fits (another performance in the bar or Sandy's tormentor are currently floating around)

I'd also like to add another neutral harlot that will basically be a rewrite of elements of Nicole's waterbed massage scene from "Locked in with a Succubus"

That's the minimum count of regular harlots to add.  Because of how the project is designed, I can add more than that, and new factions as well, but that will wait until after a version 1.0 is out.

Mini-Boss Harlots
Now we come to the mini-boss harlots that show up in rounds 5 and 9.  These are more powerful members of their respective factions.  They will likely be harlots with 3-5 different scenes.  This is to give them some repeat playability as the player will need to go through them multiple times to experience all their scenes.

Of those I need 10 - 2 per faction.

Of that 10 I have 7-8 roughly planned out in my head.  Current ideas include Temptacia (finally!), a slime nun, a latex-weaving arachne, an artificial scylla, a harem of imps, a fluffy-tailed kitsune, and Amoebella Glup.  The tentative 8th might be a nautical-themed huntmistress.

This leaves 2 mini-bosses for me to figure out.

Faction Queens
Lastly we have the end-bosses, or queens, for each faction.  This is the round 13 encounter and determines the overall game ending.  They will also have multiple sex acts, but will likely be sequential and how much the player sees will likely be determined by some kind of 'devotion' attribute.

I have pretty solid ideas for 3 of the queens.  I have a name for the smother queen, but haven't figured out what she is yet.  Classic succubus is still wide open.  That might be The Madam, but I also have other thoughts on where to use her.

Lore
I'll also need to give the 3 lore NPCs (Barman, Madam and Elegant Woman) enough dialogue to guide the player through the later rounds.

Writing-wise, this is the bare minimum I need to complete the game to a 1.0 release.

There are, however, a few things I really want to add, and probably will add unless I feel the project is dragging on and needs to be brought to a conclusion.

These are:

Post-room random events
These are just randomly occurring events that might provide bonuses, hindrances, or advance some side quests.

I want them, as I think they'll improve the game, but they're also not essential. 

Harlot team-ups
I have ideas for letting a couple of harlots double-team a player.  These might be related to side quests that result in the player unlocking an alternative round 9 encounter for a particular faction.  Ones I have rough ideas for are Mamilla & Assphyxia, Calliophi & her sister, Aphrou and Sapoonis, and the two huntmistresses.

NPC scenarios
Originally, I was thinking these would belong to a different faction and be a regular or mini-boss encounter from that faction.  The Doctoress is a clear fit for the artificial beings faction, then it gets messy.  Elegant Woman, Madam and Buxom Lolibaba all probably want to be in the 'classic succubus' faction and I can't really see Nurse Honey belonging to any faction other than her own.

I don't think I can tease Nurse Honey in the game and not let her do anything sexy, so she will definitely get a scene, and will probably be a severe late-game threat to the player on most playthroughs.

As for the others... I want to give them scenes, but it's working out where to put them.

This is what is needed for the writing.  There's still a fair bit to do, but I estimate I'm around the 75% done mark.  This ended up being a bigger project than originally planned because I put more into the individual harlot scenarios.  They are better as a result, but each is the length of a short story and takes about the same amount of time to write.

Despite this, I've kept a fairly steady release schedule.  I understand people have concerns about overly ambitious Western eroge projects never getting finished, so I hope this - and my new-release-every-month schedule - will reassure them that I do work on this in a professional manner and do have a clear endpoint in mind.

Thank you for the continued support and I hope you're enjoying how the project is developing.

And if you'd like to support the project, you can on Patreon or SubscribeStar.  It's a big game project, but I hope people can see I've got a clear plan, clear end goal, and have consistently posted regular updates over the last couple of years.

House of Hellish Harlots v0.046 (N3P-NTHes and Aphroú Kanáta ton Ouránia)

As it's the start of a new month, I've updated the public version of House of Hellish Harlots to a new version.

v0.046 has a carnivorous pitcher plant girl theme as both new harlots are variations on that type of monster girl.

N3P-NTHes
N3P-NTHes is another artificial being, this time modelled on pitcher plant lust daemons.  Unfortunately, she's one of The Doctoress's early creations and she neglected some aspects of her personality.  If you want to be brutally drained in a femdom way, N3P-NTHes is very good at that.

Perhaps a little too good...

Aphroú Kanáta ton Ouránia
Aphroú is a more conventional pitcher plant monster girl.  Her pitcher is filled with soapy water and feels like being in a relaxing hot tub full of bubblebath.

But be wary of getting too relaxed...

Similar to Sapoonis, I gave Aphroú a classical Greek appearance.  There's a decent chance the two might have a team-up scenario at some point, as Sapoonis joining the player in Aphroú's pitcher has a lot of potential for frothy fun.

You can have 'fun' with them here:

I hope you enjoy playing with the new girls.  Let me know your thoughts below.

While I have been posting recently about a graphics upgrade to HoHH, the main releases are still text-only at the moment.  You can check out how that is going under the 'Experimental' tag of the website (fairly good for desktop, still a little rough for mobile).  If you want to support the project more actively, you can do so on Patreon or SubscribeStar.

Supporters get access to newer builds.  They're up to v0.048 and were given Brittnee, a bratty 'teen' succubus, to play with in the latest release.

I'm still working on a version of HoHH with art and graphics.  I hope to show that off soon.

House of Hellish Harlots v0.044 (N'gleria Sepiida)

The public version of House of Hellish Harlots has been updated to v0.044.  You can play it here:
https://houseofhellishharlots.com/

This adds one new harlot, an ailment and charm associated with the harlot, and a few housekeeping changes to move some harlots over to the correct faction.

The new harlot is a little... unusual.  She has a regular sex scene and a very weird scene inspired from some monster girl artwork I saw floating around the internet a few years ago.

N'gleria Sepiida
She looks like an exotic alien babe with tentacles for hair.

She absolutely does not eat brains.  The Madam would like you to know any talk of such is nothing more than scurrilous hearsay.  Ahem.

I like to keep readers on their toes.  I hope you have fun with her, weird as she is.

As always, the Patreon and SubscribeStar versions are a couple of releases ahead.  They received v0.047 yesterday.  This marks the long-awaited arrival of Eve Satana to the House.  If you recognise the name from my stories, yes it is her.  She brings the 'Biggest Tits in the World' to the House and a special stage show the player should be careful they don't get too absorbed in...

If you like how the project is going, please consider supporting me there.  Last month I was throwing out a few rough graphics demos, which I hope will bring some much needed art to the House.
