New H-space Short Story for patrons - "A Sweet and Deadly Taste of Milk"

 A squad of soldiers investigates a mysterious Japanese castle transplanted out into the middle of H-space.  There are reports of a mysterious woman roaming the walls.

This is the other H-space story with a lactation/breastfeeding theme I had in progress.  It's quite long at 7K words, but more where I want the H-space stories to be in future.  (When the bestiary entries are fleshed out into full stories in their own right).

It's restricted to patrons at the moment and can be found here:

A Sweet and Deadly Taste of Milk

As with all the Patreon-exclusive stories, I am planning to put them in Amazon collections at some point further down the line.  I suspect I have enough for a collection or two now and Excessica probably want to know if I'm still alive.  Watch this space.

In the meantime, I don't want people to feel left out.  I have an idea for Literotica's current Summer Story contest and I'm hoping I can get that written in time.

As for House of Hellish Harlots, that isn't abandoned.  I just needed to take a break and work on some regular stories.  After the contest story is done, I'm planning to get back to work on that.

New H-space Story for Patrons - "Breastfeeding as a Combat Art"

As you might have gathered, I got a bit locked up on ver0.013 of House of Hellish Harlots.  It sometimes happens.  My brain can be a stubborn ass when it wants and just flat up refuse to work on some things from time to time.  After a fallow June and struggling for most of the start of July, I realised banging my head against the wall wasn't doing much, so switched tack to work on some short story projects to try and unblock.

This ended up being another look at the H-space bestiary stories.  A while back I spent some time trying to write a H-space bestiary story featuring a new monster girl every month.  This was fun, but ultimately not a good career plan as I ended up with 30 or so stories I didn't know what to do with.  Personally, I think they're a little too short and shallow to publish.  As an ongoing project I've been picking some of the better ones and revamping them into 'proper' short stories I can one day gather into a themed collection.

I posted an updated version of the sun lamia story for patrons that fleshes out the protagonist a bit more and adds more world-building and descriptions of the temple.

That was posted for patrons here:
"Sun, Snakes and the Great Uncle Fergus Stash."

I also revisited an old short story idea I started a year ago, but didn't really get anywhere on.  I posted that for patrons as a very early edit.

This isn't a shift away from the House of Hellish Harlots, but an ongoing project I'll continue to dip into if I find I need a break from the main game project.  Revamping the original H-space stories takes a surprising amount of time to get right.  At some point I'll have enough and put them out (along with some brand new stories) as ebook.

For now I intend getting back to the House of Hellish Harlots game project and hope to have a proper public demo out either before the end of the year, or very early 2021.

House of Hellish Harlots ver 0.012 (2nd part of Nurse Honey release)

I've finished the second part of the NPC Nurse release for "The House of Hellish Harlots".  This adds the three harlots that I didn't get time to finish for the last release.  Spending a little longer also enable me to also add their repeat visit functionality.

Repeat visit functionality is one aspect that has changed for the project.  Initially, I envisioned it as the player surviving 13 or so encounters and then "winning".  Adding functionality so the player can see a favourite harlot again, and the scenario might be slightly different has opened up other possibilities, such as adding subquests where seeing the same harlot over multiple visits unlocks new scenes and options.

Here is the current release (for patrons only):

The additions are 3 new harlots:

Va-kyuuma, a vac-bed specialist.

Calliophi, a lamia specialising in sensual massage.

Baloobia, a slime girl with very big tits.

The project is still ticking along nicely.  I hope to get a website version everyone can enjoy at some point, but I think that's still 3-4 months off with the amount of work I still need to do for a base demo.

House of Hellish Harlots ver0.011 - The Nurse is in the House!

This is only a short release that just adds the Nurse NPC to "The House of Hellish Harlots".  I did want to bundle 3 new harlots in with the release, but it was getting to the end of the month and they were still not quite ready.  I'm hoping to get them out early May.

The project is still patreon-exclusive, but I'm about halfway through the major NPCs.  Once all the major building blocks are in place, I'll stick it up on a webpage somewhere and switch the patreon-focus to picking and suggesting new succubus harlots.  That's still a few months off, so apologies to the folks that don't want to, or can't deal with Patreon.

April was a little distracted for me, hence only the Nurse getting finished.  Hoping for a better May so I can get more of this project out.

House of Hellish Harlots ver0.010 out!

Full details are over on my Patreon.

"House of Hellish Harlots" is the sexy text adventure game I've been working on over the past few months.  Currently, the main game loop, 3 NPCs and 11 sexy succubus/monster girl harlots have been implemented.

This release was originally meant to be a "mechanics"-only release after I tidied up a lot of code under the hood.  Then I decided to add Boobella's scenario (Yep, it's this Boobella) and a couple of extra scenes for Anna Boa and Suffocatrix Mamilla.

Yes, it is Patron-exclusive at the moment (a guy's gotta pay his bills).  However, I now have a roadmap in place and my plan is to put out a proper public beta version when all the NPCs are implemented and I've edited the old intro to match the new version.

New Story - "The Succubus Heart Squad"

Oh, and this one is up on Literotica, so everyone can read it.

The Succubus Heart Squad

Piotr Kurtzburg is your average nerdy software developer.  Normally, he doesn't get anything for Valentine's Day.  This year he gets a surprise as a statuesque beauty wearing nothing but a longcoat over lingerie hand delivers a card and chocolates.  Who are they from and just what is the 'Heart Squad'?

Yes, this is the complete "The Heart Squad", that mini-serial I started a couple of years back and then abandoned.

It's for Literotica's Valentine's Day story competition.  Every year, at this time of year, I drag it out and try to finish it, and every year I fail to do so.  Except this year.  To be honest, I didn't think I'd finish it.  I was a bit late getting the latest House of Hellish Harlots demo out and didn't think I'd left myself enough time.

Then I wrote 6,000 words on Tuesday...

I hope you enjoy it.  I'm also hoping I didn't allow too many typos to slip through.  My usual editing process is to leave the work on the side for a couple of weeks and then go back with fresh eyes.  As I was still finishing off the 1st draft on the day it was supposed to be submitted, I might have had to shortcut that process somewhat.  So, it might not be as 'tight' as usual.  It's one of those stories I might end up tweaking again when I come to put it into an ebook collection.  Any feedback would be helpful to that end.

(There are sneaky hints to another one of my characters, but it shouldn't matter if you haven't read any of her stories - it's Valentine's Day, just enjoy the succubus orgy!)

4 New Harlots for the House of Hellish Harlots

First update of the year.  I've added 4 new harlots to the game project I'm working on, "The House of Hellish Harlots."  Their names are Pix Decipula, Couchelaxa, Vête Piège, and Suffocatrix Mamilla, and they're waiting for you to "play" with them right here:

It's still a Patreon exclusive, I'm afraid.  Got bills to pay, succubi to feed and all that.

If you would like to contribute, but won't or can't deal with Patreon, and have an alternative site that you would be okay with using, let me know and I'll try to mirror things up on there.  I'm still not the world's biggest fan of Patreon.  They seem to have been quiet lately, but it's always worth having a backup in place in case Patreon gets a touch of the Orwells again.

As for a full public release: yes, I want to be doing this at some point to attract a bigger audience.

Currently I have the main game loop implemented, 3 NPCs and 11 sexy(ish) harlots.  As it stands, that's almost the same content as a small DLsite game (in text and code - I'm still lacking such luxuries as art and sound).  Unfortunately, I've been influenced too much by Torotoro resistance and Monster Girl Quest, so I'm a mad bastard that wants to make something awesome and unforgettable.

What I want in place before I start throwing it open to the public is the intro and the game loop all fully written, all major NPCs in place, and enough harlots to be able to play through for a few rounds.  That will then be the rough equivalent of an early access demo.  I'm still about 4-7 months off from that.

In the meantime I'll keep posting the early demos to my Patreon.  I'm only working in text, so I don't charge more than a $1 per month for access.  (If you feel I deserve more, I'm not going to turn it down!)
