I'm making some progress with Godot. ( https://godotengine.org/ / https://store.steampowered.com/app/404790/Godot_Engine/ ) I had intended to use it for arcade games, scrolling shooters and beat 'em ups, but I could be persuaded to do a brothel sim engine with a little help. I'd probably try scrolling shooter or brawler combat instead of the current turn-based combat, if it were me. Models and animations should be simple, but I'm a little intimidated to program it. If anyone out there wants to help, I could help make this happen.

I'd offer to upload it for you, but sadly the last version I have saved is 2.3b.

Here's something interesting, though. I went to the Simbro blogspot website and...it's VERY out of date. The last post made to it was in June of 2017 with the public release of 2.3 and the Patreon release of 2.4. That stood out to me because the reason 2.3b is the last version I have of Simbro is because that's about the time I stopped following. So I went to Graphtreon and compared June of 2017 with their stats.

Now, my memory is sketchy, but I think this was the point where fan good will was mostly lost. But looking at Graphtreon, June of 2017 was when their earnings dropped and never recovered. I'm almost positive this was the period of time where there were just endless delays and long periods of silence. But isn't that odd? The last time any update was made to Simbro's website was the same time that their delays and releases became inexcusable. And they are now supposed to release 2.7 within the next few days. Oh, also? The countdown timer isn't on the Simbro website. I swear, I recall the countdown timers being on the Simbro blog. The current timer that was linked to on the Patreon post is on countingdownto.com.

It would not surprise me at ALL if it turned out that someone left the project, leaving someone who wasn't skilled in everything required for development...and the person who left neglected to hand over permissions for the Simbro website. Other than pure laziness, I can't imagine why they aren't using the Simbro blogspot anymore considering it's still linked in their introductory statement on their Patron page.

Oh, and based on the countdown timer, they initially set it up to end on the 30th of June. As of me writing this, it will reach zero on the 7th.

Some things never change, I guess.

I actually downloaded 2.7 at one point, but noticed on their Patreon page that it still states the lastest version is 2.6, which has me believing the 2.7 version might just be 2.6 with a virus, I got rid of it as soon as I saw it had the same interface problems 2.6 had. Mainly when I'm looking for a download, I look for SWF versions (at least with Sim-Bro), however what I discovered is that it appears he's developing for Android phones now (when I looked up the extension on one of the downloads), it might be possible the interface isn't fully compatible on PCs even when run through an EXE...

And there's all the proof you need of how badly the flash version plays (can't really say for the Android version, I don't really trust it enough to put it on my Samsung Galaxy S6 & don't really want to be playing flash games on my phone anyways)...

Very good concept and execution. I got a little confused at the beginning though, like how to start and what not.

I think you have to level CHA a few times.

In later versions, you have the option to set to a day off before you go to jail for the day (this comes with an event also, either with the male or female cop; you get different outcomes depending on which cop comes to speak to you while you're locked up), this doesn't stop the money from being taken, but it at least keeps you from taking excessive reputation loss. The version I grabbed from online is a v2.7a executable (he finally got the game playable again in this version, although it seems the underwear matching bonus was removed).

Just want to point out? Version 2.5 to 2.6 had a gap of about 72 days. Version 2.6 to 2.7 (not including hotfixes) was about 111 days and (again, not including the hotfix) it has been 184 days since then. Considering they started working on 2.6 in 2017, they have thus far released only a single update that was started this year. I seriously wonder what's going on over there.

Pure rampant speculation: Judging from the abandonment of the blogspot, original maker sold the game/died/lost interest and these guys are cannibalising the fans.
