And I'm telling you that just because you had that impression doesn't change the base nature of the game.

I am curious which parts of the game suggests to you that the corruption is the main part of the game.[/quote]
Oh gee, perhaps the fact that the goal of the game is to corrupt your employees? The fact that your entire business is centered around a serum that lowers peoples' inhibitions and makes them more pliable to sex? The fact that your goal in the game is to get people naked and have sex with them? Again, what forum do you think you're on? This ain't a place for people to post their amateur sim games.

Just because the tutorial is centered around explaining the major new aspect of the game (the business side) doesn't mean it's a business sim.

For reasons which will become clear, I didn't read the full conversations, but rather short snippets and just want to put my few words in, without siding with anyone in particular.

I don't have internet because I've mved to a new place, and also work security jobs where I have nothing to do for 12 hours. Game like Lab Rats, with generic characters, lasts really long for me because it allows all sorts of experiments, testing how potions work etc. (same reason why I don't have the time and focus to read full conversation - Im sitting at my friend's). Ironically, without the generics, the game would be another generic (heh heh) VN.

At the same time, the fact that any changes to wardrobe or potentially new sex positions means that a lot of files need to be updated, and at the same time, balloons the save files (15MB txt file is bloody huge!) makes it clear they need to be introduced with care.

This is why I think they should make the next version in Unity with 3D models in it, even if for only static positions, because then any new item will only require model update, and all new positions would automatically update the model outfits.

Anyhow, the game is great,

One problem I have, I can't hire a new person as a model after firing the previous one. Is this intentional?
I believe text dump is not a valid form of storytelling in video games. Video games are for interaction, not reading, therefore the story should be woven into gameplay instead.

Lab Rats 2 v0.22.0 is Live! If you're already a patron you can get it here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-22-31220173

v0.22.0 is finished development and ready for it's week of bug testing! The main focus of this update was extending the love system by adding two special roles for high love levels: The "Girlfriend" role and the "Paramour" role. You can now ask a girl to become your girlfriend once you reach a certain level of love. Girls who are already in a relationship with someone will say no, but if you are able to seduce and satisfy them can sometimes be convinced to start an affair with you. Both of these roles come with new related events, and both change how willing a girl is to have sex with you and in what ways. The amount that love is added to sluttiness when having sex has also been tweaked, reducing the amount given for girls who are not in a relationship with you. Family members also now receive a small amount of extra sluttiness based on love instead of none.

Outside of the new roles there have been a number of new clothing items added to the game, along with a few new standard outfits that make use of them. Boy shorts panties, daisy dukes, a new blouse style, and an apron have all been added to the game. Three new hair styles have also been added: A braided bun style, a curly bun style, and a short windswept style. On top of that, a bunch of old items have been tweaked and re-rendered, as have all of the character bodies. These are all part of the ongoing effort to improve and expand the images used in Lab Rats 2.
Finally, there have been a bunch of new events, sex descriptions, and dialogue changes. Your sister Lily has a new event that will be leading to future developments next update, and two new paths have been added to Mom's weekly mortgage help event. Two new sex positions, groping and fingering, have been added as well. A new date exclusive to the paramour role adds a massive 6000 words of dialogue all by itself.

If you're already a patron I hope you enjoy the update, if not I hope you're looking forward to the public release next week!

Here's a changelog to go with the update! (v0.21.1 to v0.22.0):

Lab Rats 2 v0.22.1 out and available to everyone absolutely free! Get it here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-22-31410003

The main focus for the v0.22 update cycle for Lab Rats 2 was the expansion of the romance mechanics. You can now impress a girl and have her fall in love with you, instead of being limited to corrupt her and turning her into a slut, or establishing dominance over her and demanding what you want. Girls with enough Love can be given the new "girlfriend" role, and girls already in a relationship with someone else can be convinced to start and affair with you. Once you are in a relationship with a girl her love will more greatly impact what sex acts and positions she is willing to try. Family members also now receive a small amount of extra sluttiness from their love.

Beyond the new relationship roles there is a collection of new clothing items that have been added to the game. Boy short panties, daisy dukes, a wrapped blouse, and an apron have all been added to the outfit designer. New outfits have also been added to the standard wardrobe to make use of some of these new pieces of clothing. The collection of hair styles have also been expanded to include a new braided bun style, a curly bun style, and a short windswept style. As part of the ongoing effort to improve the image sets used in Lab Rats 2 a number of old items have been tweaked and re-rendered to reduce clipping, and all of the character bodies have been re-rendered to improve quality as well.

Finally, there are a number of new events, sex descriptions, and dialogue additions included in this update. The main character's sister and cousin have new storyline events, and their mom has a new option for one of her weekly recurring events. Two new sex positions have been added, adding groping and fingering to the list. A new date type specific to the "paramour" role has been added, with a large number of branching paths included during it. The new "girlfriend" role adds the ability to ask your beloved to get herself a boob job, giving you an option to enhance her without the use of your mind and body altering serum.

I hope you enjoy the update!

And a full changelog (v0.21.1 to v0.22.1):

Lab Rats 2 v0.23.0 is finished and ready for it's week of patron bug testing! If you're already a patron you can find it here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-23-31992561

This update brings with it a huge rewrite of the core sex system of the game. This rewrite streamlines and improves the way you bring girls to orgasm, the way they do the same to you, and what rewards are given when either happens. Multi-orgasm encounters for both people are now possible as well! To go along with this rewrite three new sex positions have been added, meaning you can now get a handjob, titfuck a girl, or eat out her pussy.

There have been other major additions to the game this update as well. Four new clothing items have been added, giving girls two new bras, one new set of panties, and a new virgin killer sweater dress to wear. Pubic hair styles have also been added to the game. Girls can now have one of five styles ranging from clean shaven to trimmed landing strip to full bush. To go along with the addition of the energy system Three new serum traits and two new serum side effects have been added, giving you additional tools to manipulate your employees and your loved ones. To top it all off, a new at-home random event has been added involving your mother and sister.

Minor changes, fixes, and improvements abound as well. Chatting, complementing, and flirting no longer advance time, instead costing a small amount of energy. Arousal and energy both have visual tokens to represent them in situations where space is tight. The sex position selection menu now concisely tell you if a girl is likely to find a position too slutty and what your arousal gains are likely to be. And lastly, a bunch of bugs throughout the game have been squashed!

Lab Rats 2 v0.24.0 is currently available to patrons for a week of bug hunting! If you're already a patron you can find the download links here:
https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-24-32775583

It's the start of a new year, which means it's also time for a new Lab Rats 2 release! The main work of this update was behind the scenes, updating the rendering system used to generate the clothing and character images for LR2. That doesn't mean there haven't been any content additions though; new clothing items, new events, and new options for girls you are in a relationship with are all present in v0.24.0!

Two brand new clothing items have been added to the outfit creation system: heart shaped nipple pasties and a waist cincher. Both have also had new outfits using them added to the default starting wardrobe. Additionally, the leotard has been re-rendered to remove clipping and reclassified to count as a upper body shirt but lower body underwear, allowing for it to be used in much more natural looking outfits. Lastly on the rendering front, a new creampie element has been added to the game, finally allowing you to see girls walking around with your cum dripping down their thighs.

This update has some new written content as well. A new random event at work shows your slutty employees doing your work for you and corrupting their less slutty friends. At home a new random event has been added with your mother for late in the game, when love and sluttiness are both high. You can now ask your girlfriend or affair partner to trim their pubic hair into a new style, and you can now ask your affair partner to get a boobjob. At high enough obedience you can also demand she trick her boyfriend/fiancee/husband into paying for it instead of you. For girlfriends at high obedience you can now demand that they pay for it themselves.

I hope you enjoy the update, the behind-the-scenes improvements should pay dividends over the next few months!

Here's a changelog:
Spoiler (click to show/hide):

*CHANGES AND ADDITIONS*

There's two things I'd like you to fix, the voice over function reads everything on the screen, instead of just the dialog, and H button to hide interface also hides the girls' models (rendering it useless unless you want to admire the background)

Also, would it be possible to move the girl's image on the right a little higher so their feet are visible when talking to them?
I believe text dump is not a valid form of storytelling in video games. Video games are for interaction, not reading, therefore the story should be woven into gameplay instead.

Lab Rats 2 v0.24.1 is live! You can find the download links on my Patreon for free: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-24-32972209

LR2 v0.24.1 is finished and all ready for it's public release. A big chunk of work this month was spent behind the scenes updating the rendering system used to produce the image sets for the game, but there's still plenty of new content as well! This update brings new clothing items, new random events, and new options for your one or many girlfriends.

A large chunk of time was spent working on the rendering pipeline for new clothing items, so it's only reasonable that a whole whack of new items have been added. Nine new clothing items have been added to the game, including a barely-there micro skirt, easy access crotchless panties, and some elegant forearm gloves to help class up the experience. New default wardrobe outfits have been added to the game to make use of these additions. A new creampie cum element has also been added, allowing you to finally see girls walking around with your cum dripping down their thighs.

This update contains new random events and relationship options as well. At work, a new event shows your slutty employees helping their more conservative friends cut loose a little. At home, your mother has an important job for you once both her love and sluttiness are high. With enough obedience you can now ask your girlfriend or affair partner to trim her pubic hair into a style you like. You can also now ask a girl you are having an affair with to get a boob job, and with enough obedience you can demand she have her boyfriend, husband, or fiancee to pay for it instead of you.

Enjoy!

Changelog(v0.23.2 to v0.24.1):

Lab Rats 2 v0.25.0 is finished and ready for a week of patron bug testing! If you are already a patron you can find the download links here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-25-33641272. This update brings one major feature to Lab Rats 2: 2D Animation! Girls now bounce, jiggle, and bob to their hearts content! The new animation system has been completely integrated into the game, bringing animated character images into every single conversation, random event, business crisis, and sex scene! No game is complete without accurate jiggly physics, which is why LR2 now simulates the differences between small and large, natural vs. artificial breasts when animating characters!

The new animation system is the crown of this update, but there is also a sizeable chunk of new written content that has been added! Three new random events have been added and involve your cousin, affair partner, or girlfriend. Each event includes different possibilities depending on character opinions and level of corruption. The skull fuck sex position has been added and is available when transitioning out of being deepthroated, adding another oral possibility to the game.

Because LR2 v0.25.0 makes many changes and additions to the core of Ren'py I would like to remind everyone that it is likely to contain bugs, many of them game breaking. If you are looking for a smooth gameplay experience I would suggest waiting until the public, bug-fixed release next week. If you're happy to help with the bug hunting, or just too excited to wait, I hope you enjoy the new version of the game! If you run into any problems with the animations, or if you simply don't enjoy them, they can be turned off from the main menu.

Changelog (v0.24.1 to v0.25.0):
Spoiler (click to show/hide):

*CHANGES AND ADDITIONS*

- Modified character image section of the screen. Now includes a coloured backplate and a frame.

Lab Rats 2 v0.25.1 is finished and ready for it's release to the public! Get it here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-25-33849841

This update brings one major new feature to Lab Rats 2: 2D animation! Girls now bounce, jiggle, and bob to their (or your) hearts content! The ne animation system has been completely integrated into the game, bringing animated character images to every single conversation, random event, business crisis, and sex scene! Jiggly physics mean nothing if they aren't accurate, so LR2 now simulates the difference between small vs large, natural vs artificial tits when animating characters!

The new animation system is the crown of this update, but there is also some new written content to go with it! Three new random events have been added, expanding your interactions with your cousin, girlfriend, or affair partner. Each event has multiple variants depending on the girls opinions and level of corruption. The sex system has been expanded with a new position: When being deepthroated you can now take over completely and start skull fucking a girl.

This has been one of the most technically challenging updates to bring to Lab Rats 2, but I think it's one of the most impressive as well! Enjoy!

Note: Due to platform limitations there are currently no animations on Android.

What does this new animation look like? Take a look! https://imgur.com/QZEN7Dl

It's the start of a new month, which means it's time for a new version of Lab Rats for patrons to bug test! At the end of the week a public version will be released to everyone absolutely free! If you are already a patron or want to become one you can find the links here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-26-34475664

v0.26.0 introduces a new "taboo" mechanic, representing a girls initial resistance to try something new. A ton of new dialogue and sex descriptions have been written to describe the moment a taboo is broken, totalling more than 26,000 words. Special characters like your mother and sister also have sets of taboo break dialogue, alongside all of the standard personality types. All of the existing events in the game have been updated to interact with the taboo system; many random events allow for taboos to be broken earlier than normal.

While the new taboo system was the main focus of this update, there have also been additions and improvements elsewhere. Eleven new clothing patterns have been rendered, expanding the options available in the outfit creator, and three existing items have been re-rendered to improve their quality. A couple of animations have been added, expanding on new animation functionality added last update. Lastly, a bunch of bugs have been fixed, including several critical display bugs found in the animation system on Mac or on non-1920p monitors.

I hope you enjoy the update! Here's a changelog (v0.25.1 to v0.26.0)

If you're already a patron (or want to become one) you can find the download links here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/lab-rats-2-v0-27-35507683

It's the start of a new month, which means a new Lab Rats 2 patron release! It's a star-studded release season, but I hope LR2 v0.27.0 will capture your interest just as much as Animal Crossing or Bannerlord! This update cycle had two major focuses: business policy mechanics and the seduction system. It is now possible to toggle business policies, such as mandatory corporate nudity, on and off. The seduction system has been reworked, with the previous generic "seduce" option replaced with a number of context specific options. These options correspond to a girls key stats: Love, Obedience, and Sluttiness. What approach you should take to seduce someone will depend on the girl.

The ability to toggle business policies on and off is the most immediate change to the policy system, but there has been a lot more work done under the hood as well. The policy purchase UI has been revamped to display more information more clearly and to support policies being toggled on and off. There is now code support for policies with an ongoing per-turn or per-day effect/cost, opening up a huge number of possibilities for additions in future updates.

The seduction system rework broke the previous generic "seduce" option into three distinct approaches, each one focused on a different key stat for a girl. Girls with high Love now respond positively to flirting, especially when the two of you are alone. Girls with high Sluttiness can be seduced by groping them to get them hot and bothered. Finally, girls who are highly Obedient can simply be commanded to submit their bodies to you. The results of each of these approaches is highly context specific; girls who are shy will want to go somewhere private before you do anything naughty, slutty girls don't care if you start grabbing their tits in the middle of the office.

There have also been a few additions and changes scattered throughout the game. Your aunt Rebecca has had a full suite of taboo break dialogue written for her, a total of 3,500 words. The generic ability to try and give any girl a dose of serum has been removed in favour of a high Obedience "Command" variant, with the "Sneak" option being replaced by more frequent random events and the "Ask" option being role or character specific now. Girls with high Obedience can now be commanded to strip to their underwear, get their tits out, or strip naked for you. When having sex girls will only try and take control if they have the energy to do something, and they now properly break their own taboos when in control of the encounter.

v0.27.0 has been a big update! If you're a patron I hope you enjoy it, if not I hope you're looking forward to it!

Changelog (v0.26.1 to v0.27.0):
Spoiler (click to show/hide):

*CHANGES AND ADDITIONS*
- Some purchased policies can now be toggled to be active or inactive. Some policies are always active when purchased.
- Added support for policy fuctions when applied, removed, on each turn, or on each day beginning.

- Uniforms may now be invalid if uniform policies are deactivated after they are defined. Invalid uniforms will not be worn until the appropraite policies are activated.
- Girls will change out of newly invalid uniforms if they are not naturally slutty enough to wear it anyways.
- Added a disabled slug to set daily serum action when policy is owned but disabled.
- Added full suite of taboo break dialogue for Rebecca.

Lab Rats 2 v0.27.1 is finished with it's week of bug testing and ready for it's free public release! This update cycle focused on two major existing sections of the game: The business policy mechanics and the seduction system. After purchase business policies can now be toggled on and off, and a new UI has streamlined the process. The seduction system has been completely reworked, removing the generic "seduce" option and replacing it with several new ways to start having sex with a girl. These new options correspond to a girls key stats: Love, Obedience, and Sluttiness. What approach you should take to seduce someone will depend on the girl.

The ability to toggle business policies is the most immediate change to the policy system, but there have been some major changes under the hood to make space for future content. The policy purchase UI has been completely reworked to provide information about policy state, price, and requirements. There is now support for policies with ongoing per-turn or per-day effects. Future updates will make use of these new features to add more policies you can purchase for your business.

The seduction system has been completely reworked in this update. The generic "seduce" option has been split into three distinct approaches, each targeting a different way to corrupt a girl. Girls with high Love respond positively to flirting, especially when you're alone, and might want to take things further with you. Girls with high Sluttiness can be seduced by groping them to get them hot and bothered. Finally, girls who are highly Obedient can be command to submit their bodies to you.

There have also been a few additions and changes scattered throughout the game. Your aunt, Rebecca, has had a full suite of taboo break dialogue written specifically for her, adding a total of 3,500 words of new dialogue. Girls with high Obedience can now be commanded to get their tits out, show you their underwear, or strip completely naked. Girls with high Obedience can also be commanded to take a dose of mind affecting serum. The sex system has been updated to properly apply taboo breaks when transitioning between positions, as well as limit when a girl will try and take control from you when you try and leave her unsatisfied.

This is probably the best visual novel game I have ever seen (Glassix and Man of the House are close contenders)

At the same time, there are few glaring problems with it:
1. Ren'Py is good for visual novels, but your vn is actually becoming a game. One of you should learn Unity and start making Lab Rats 3d. Theres only so far you can push Ren'Py, it already takes ages to load and save the game.
2. Can at least one person on the dev team finally get laid and learn how sex works? Seriously, who's idea was it that you lose energy when receiving oral sex?! It's painfully blatant the writers have very little sexual experience.
3. There is A LOT of Ren'Py errors which, judging by the error report, are caused by typos ('sluttness' instead of 'sluttiness' and various missing vars). I was thinking about listing them here but I assumed creators don't care.
4. The game desperately needs a 'skip scene' button sometimes, like when your Aunt is introduced or when you're going to meet Nora. If you've already seen them, you're just gonna be sitting and tapping space till it's over.
5. Certain sex scenarios should be linear, in my opinion. For instance, getting a bj in exchange for rent was a great idea, but I'd rather read it as a story that goes step by step, than reading the same message several times, and have her run out of energy when I'm at 99% arousal (I know you can use caffeine infusion, but this is still incredibly stupid)
6. If she sucked you off already, it's not really a taboo to kiss her... I think unlocking a taboo should unlock every taboo on actions less severe than that one.

I also have a question, is it possible to get Lily or Jennifer as girlfriends? I know they say 'no' even when starts are high, so Im just wondering if the option is there only to remind you about the possibility without it actually being expected to work.
I believe text dump is not a valid form of storytelling in video games. Video games are for interaction, not reading, therefore the story should be woven into gameplay instead.
