Lab Rats 2 - Down to Business (v0.14.1, 8/3/2019)

Plot
Lab Rats 2 takes place several months after the events of it's prequel. You have graduated from university, and during your search for a job you stumble upon a foreclosed chemistry lab. You decide to buy it (taking out a hefty loan to do so) and start up a business making and selling doses of the mind-effecting serum you helped develop over the summer. Your goal is to hire employees, research new serum traits, produce serum to sell, and grow your business! Use serum on your own employees to ensure they're happy, skilled, and willing to do whatever is necessary to secure a sale!

Features
  • Procedurally Generated Characters - Potential employees are generated from a combination of body style, breast size, skin colour, eye colour, hair style, hair colour, height, and personality! There are thousands of different combinations already, and more options are being added with every update!
  • Dynamic Clothing System - Not satisfied with a collection of predefined outfits? Create your own! Lab Rats 2 lets you create outfits by picking from a collection of bras, panties, shirts, skirts, pants, socks, and shoes! Tell your more obedient workers what they should wear, or create a uniform for all of your employees!
  • Highly Interactive Sex System - Sex scenes aren't just a series of images and text any more! Once you've seduced a girl you can choose what position you want to have sex in and what you're having sex on. Strip girls down as you go, pull off her panties so you can have sex, and bend her over your office desk! The more satisfied you leave your partner, the stronger the effect of any serum she has taken will be and the more corrupted she will become!
  • Custom Serum Creation - Research different serum traits and use them to produce your ideal serum! Increase Suggestability to make her more open to manipulation or her Sluttiness to make her more willing to have sex and wear slutty outfits. Serums can also change girls over long periods of time, growing or shrinking breasts, height, or providing a passive increase to happiness! Sell serum you don't plan to use yourself for profit to help keep your business going!
  • Business Policies - Use your hard earned cash to purchase business policies that make it easier for you to corrupt your business and increase profits! Impose ever sluttier uniform policies, require daily serum doses be taken by your employees, and focus your marketing on men to gain a larger boost from skimpy employee outfits!
  • Random Crises - Make difficult choices or seize unlikely opportunities when random crises strike! Accidental exposure in the lab gives an unexpected chance to observe the effects of your serum on one of your employees, and special training opportunities let you improve your staff by spending some cash.

I'll be doing my best! The original five characters will be making an appearance in LR2, but their addition is going to wait until the character generation system is a little more robust.

Lab Rats v0.3.1 is live and available to everyone! The direct download links are provided at the bottom of the original post, or you can find them here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/17681652

Lab Rats v0.3.1 brings in several major additions to the central gameplay. In addition to a huge number of quality of life updates and bug fixes, there have been two major features added to the game. First, the introduction of business policies. These are business upgrades purchased with cash that allow you to improve your profitability or corrupt your employees more completely. Second, the first of many crises have been added to the game. These are events which take place between turns and require player input to resolve. They can offer a lucky opportunity, giving you a chance to test serum on your employees or improve the skills of your staff.
Other noteworthy additions to this version of the game include: A character creation screen, an employee overview screen, support for dynamically coloured clothing (to be expanded on in v0.4), support for multiple facial styles (to be expanded on in v0.4), sex skills for all characters which influence how fast arousal is gained, uniforms can now be assigned to your employees once the correct policies are researched, restrictions on map movement have been lifted until there is a mechanical reason for it.
Enjoy the new version of the game, I'm already hard at work on the next one!
Here's a full change log, detailing all of the changes from v0.2.1 to v0.3.1:

Somehow I think the bad Event generator is broken...I hire a girl and the next timeshift she's comeing and telling me she wants to quit.
It happens repeatedly until all employees are gone and they barely stay for 1 day...raising their happiness isn't helping at all.
So unless I didn't get something this seems horribly unbalanced

After further Testing the interesting part is that it ONLY happens to Girls assigned to "procure supplys"

I had the same problem. I'd hire someone, and they'd want to quit the next day. I'm assuming that's because the only other event is the one where they splash water on themselves.

I think I figured it out now...
if the girl you hired has an obedience<100 she'll quit after a little while, so as long as you have girls with obedience>=100 everything is fine.
Ultimately it makes save scamming or cheating more important...so not very happy with this current mechanic.

and found a bug

@ dannub: Transformation will definitely be a minor focus in LR2, mind control and corruption will be present, and incest will make its way back into the game as we go forward and I add in the key characters from LR1.

@ Evangelion-01: Job satisfaction is calculated as happiness + obedience + salary above default. If that's > 200 (ie. default happiness, obedience, and salary) they will stay, otherwise there's a 1% chance for every point they're missing that they'll quit each turn they're at work. If someone is thinking about quitting try talking to them and giving them a raise, it comes with a happiness boost that you don't get if you give them a raise when they try and quit, which makes it doubly effective. I'll take a quick look at the code to see if there are any bugs lurking around that might make it only happen in procurement. I've tracked down the other bug you reported and fixed it up, thanks for the report!

Postby Evangelion-01 » Sat Mar 24, 2018 11:00 am

I tried that...
happiness was 110+ obedience 94 and I gave a raise before and offered another one when she wanted to leave (Ok I got to make her stay...but her wage was way over the board now)
Hiring a girl that asks 35+ giving her a raise twice makes her more expansive than a girl with far better stats.
First I thought a girl with high charm and Human Resources would raise my chances getting happy employees...but that didn't play out either.
You can be lucky and only have one girl with 90+ obedience, but I also had attempts when 4-5 girls quiettet within 2 days for that reason

Currently it's a reason to save before hiring and reload if the obedience is to low...you'll loose that girl anyway.
Maybe if there were more commonly Events that raise obedience at the start that would be less likely for low obedience=quitters but right now it can lead to an early game over just by "chance".

I like the rest of the game so far and certainly look forward to the chance to get the girls from part 1 included^^
On that note I wanted to ask if you are open for suggestions...since I think you can greatly increase difficulty and money management in a realistic way without makeing players lynch you right away :þ
Also the game could really profit from a "cancel" or "back" button

Realy enjoyed the first one and curious to how this one ends and plays out.

Just a little request tho. Please dont make a Nora 2. I dont mind a chalange but with her starting out with only two events who where chance based to ocur (at least what i figured) it tended to get somewhat frustraiting to get her up. Seing you work on a sequel made me to play through the first one again in normal mode and i got quite unlucky getting those events. By the time i got to her first event (the science party) i was already able to bang the rest all over town and up the walls.

Other than that all i can say is; Keep up the good work

Lab Rats v0.4.0 is out for $5 patrons for a week of bug testing and will be available to everyone next week!

If you're already a patron you can find the download links here: [Lab Rats 2 v0.4](https://www.patreon.com/posts/18417774)

The major change for this update has been the complete re-render of all pieces of clothing in the game to make them compatible with the dynamic colouring system. The outfit creator screen has been given a major overhaul to go along with that, and a few default outfits have been created to show off the new clothing and system. Now that the backlog of images is rendered I will be adding new pieces of clothing, imaging positions, and accessories with every update.

A few other quality of life changes have been made to the game: Girls now have a default +10 job satisfaction added, which should limit them to quitting only when very unhappy. Actions that are usually shown but unavailable because of time, lack of people, ect. are greyed out instead of missing entirely. This will keep menus more consistently ordered.

Finally, there are some content additions to the game: Three new crisis events have been introduced into the game and a new sex pose has been rendered (missionary).

I'm looking forward to getting this update polished off and pushed out to everyone next week!

A full change log (v0.3.3 to v0.4.0):

I can't turn a profit. I'm obviously doing something very wrong otherwise more people would be complaining about the difficulty I think.
So, any tips?

The easiest thing to do in the current game is to research the "basic medical" trait first, then design a serum with that as it's only trait. Get your company set up selling that serum for profit (make sure you've got enough supply coming in, it can bottleneck production if you don't have enough!), and once you're making cash you can start spending your extra cash on business policies and hiring extra researchers.

In general, pay attention to the production point/value ratio. Also don't overstaff. Hire as few people as you can get away with. That's 1 marketer, 1 hr, 1 researcher, and 2 supply and production each. That should balance out nicely.

Honestly, overall, it feels too difficult to get started. There's a lot of places you can go right off the bat, and even with the tutorials, the process of researching and producing feels overly complicated. There's too many steps, essentially. I'm going to play another game and see if I can narrow down some suggestions.
