BHGH v1.08 has now gone live for supporters!

Since last update: (v1.05)
More poses + hanar walk-in for citadel map. New client-based session timer, gameplay updates and plenty of tiny things I've forgotten to mention

Still to go:
Cerberus walk-in partner to wrap up 1.1, then 1.2 will focus on art/story (mess layers & character votes, mainly) and finally, 1.3 will be all about bonus "classic" mnf style scenes (details on those later)

In your "Pleasure Bon Bon Krystal" bootleg, what is the icon that's located on the top very far left (kind of looks like soap), and how do you activate it?
Also, there is a bug that when you click the "show" icon (located off the left side of the screen), it won't stay open...instead it closes by itself.

ahh, right.. guess I didnt do such a good job on that'un
the 'clean' button is for removing mess (like cumming outside)
it was meant to light up when there's something for it to do, too.. :?

and hidey-showey was a goof. I guess I never actually tested that button :lol:

bam! less than a month late. top-class support right here! :P ... :oops:

Zobo Wrote:did not get any save file from your test app.

yeah, I dunno... it hardly ever worked for me, either.
it'd save, then disappear later.

but, whatever.
apparently, it works for everyone else... so that's good enough for me!
I got no idea. I'll deal with the panic attacks when the bug reports start rolling in. :(

Very sad.. you not give access to 1.05 to other people even with 1.08 release :( can't wait to see how much your BHGH project is under progress.. can I ask your plans about your non-Patreon fans ?

Have fun :)

supporter early access goes for about a month

now that I'm finally commission-free and out of bootleg territory, I'll be looking to change how my page works

so, that number is gonna get trimmed down ;)

Almost all the cheats from pre 1.25 don't work anymore. It mentions check the list, when I type in Guarana or Gallery. What list?

If the list it is referring to is one that is locked to $15 Patrons on Patreon, then I think I'll pass on this one.

For a game for masturbation, it's grind is too steep and the progression too limited. I got bored before I completed the first level, and ended up watching some porn instead and fapped to that. With the cheat Guarana, it helped a lot to get over the initial grind and limited progression.

bingo. and the price recently dropped down to include everyone who had beta access

as for feedback on the game.. I guess..
the pacing and progression is the whole point.. but if you're not enjoying it, then I suppose this game just isnt what you were looking for ..
sorry :|

And here I thought you didn't like the idea of paywalls. Okay, fair enough.

It is like Microtransactions in AAA; the developers intentionally stretch out the grind, to entice people to buy the microtransactions to help them overcome the grind. Basically they ruin the gameplay experience, in favor of milking customers. I'm not saying that you are doing this, but it is said all the same, that your titles are starting to veer into this direction. I get it, you want to make a living off this, and I'm not blaming you specifically, but I feel bad that when people go from doing it for fun/hobby, to doing it like a job, that their personality shifts and all their values that they had, are thrown away in favor of acquiring more dough. Oh well, such is life, right?

Generally though, when a developer creates a cheat code to reduce the grind (ie Guarana cheat) or bypass the grind altogether (ie Gallery cheat), it is fairly telling that the developer themselves knows that the grind is harsh and that the good stuff, that people want to fap to, is locked behind a whole lot of time invested. This works great for an actual video game, that someone plays to try to win, but when the "prize" of winning is the stuff you want to fap to, then that means you can't fap for a long time until you get to the good stuff. Hence the value of a Gallery Mode. Anyway, I'm ranting, and I think I've spent enough time on this post and stuff, and I think I'm just going to leave the forums for a while and mope. Maybe in a year or two, I'll come back and check up on your stuff, but now I'm out.

Cheers, happy coding, and good luck!

Postby DerpGracious » Fri May 11, 2018 8:26 pm

To be perfectly honest, I was a "BHGH" supporter until last month when I saw the cheats were put behind a paywall after having it supported long enough. I find this practice to be completely intolerant against the supporters. Did I play the game? yes I did and I even enjoyed it and after being through with this project so much time, yet I still did not feel complete for not being rewarded for finishing the game just as I would be in many other projects.

Putting additional outfits for your highest "inner circle" supporters is something I would clearly understand as you are gracefully giving them their own special cut for being on your side that much, but you are not complimenting those who support you, you are doing the opposite, you are taking stuff back! You did not know how to counter the special stuff for your highest supporters and instead of making effort (Completely my opinion, not a statement) you just took back from your supporters... Cutting what they had just to get more money (you may obviously deny this, yet please try to understand that this is how it makes you look right now and slanders your reputation at the moment).

I felt scammed, removed my patronage, did not even freeze it, I just cancelled it and I even had to write a sharp feedback on patreon feedback form on why I decided to stop supporting this. I did state they I was scammed and I still persistently believe that was the case, very, very disappointed as well. Again, I implore you to please try and see the perspective here. You may not agree (very likely you won't) but whatever your reasons might be, however true and righteous they are or not, you forgot to think this through and the possible consequences with it and I hope you are willing to redirect your approach in similar cases for all current and futures projects.

P.S: For some reason I cannot login to my own account, I hadn't for some time and I can't even get my username back as the site says it is not found. When I tried to re-register, it said it was in use so I am baffled and therefore had to make a new and completely unrelated account to write this, and JUST to write this. So don't consider me a fake account, my original one was "flueee" and you can see how long I have been here. Oh well, I better try and get it back.

I must be missing something, I DLed the 1.25 version you just released publicly, but I don't see anything like the Shep in your screenshot, with the black lipstick and all. I'm guessing that's what was meant by "pale Shep and OC" in the changelog above, but I'm not sure what OC means or if I'm missing something. I found how to change hair colour but is there another button for changing the... art-style, essentially? Thanks!

Oh well, such is life, right

for this one, the design philosophy was something along the lines of "more playtime = more engagement = more fun"
did I hit the mark on that? ... apparantly not. :|
for the year or so this was in development, I'd only heard good things. so that's what I went off.
I welcome this sort of critisism .. I only wish you'd have all let me know sooner :?

Maybe in a year or two, I'll come back and check up on your stuff, but now I'm out.

firstly, the headstart cheats have always been a thing. (that hint under the cheat-bar itself) click the icon or type my name and skip all the early grind. easy.
also, I was actually asked to nerf that because apparantly it gave away too much for free and "spoiled the experience"
sure, you clearly have the opposite opinion, but let me know. because seriously, that's the only feedback I'd gotten
(though, on reflection... I was wrong to do what they asked for. the real problem wasnt the head start, it was clearly the basic starter pack :shock:)

oh, and gallery mode code is given away as a reward when you use the ship and beat the game -- which is something I should have added a long time ago, frankly

as a side-note on the instant gratification bit .. making 'popcorn' is something I'm really trying to avoid falling into.
mostly because diving right into things and having mostly non-interactive xxx really isnt working with the strengths that games innately have..
if flash games want to compete with things like SFM, then we need to try- having something to show for our much longer development times

that's fair.
.. no, really. it is.
but I still feel like need something special to give back to my supporters for you know, supporting me.
~ for giving me the chance to follow my dreams and make this gig my one-and-only purpose

I've tried for months to operate as a simple tip-jar, and that clearly wasnt working.
still.. I'm open to ethical ideas, anyone ;)

I think part of the problem was the huge hike between the early access and the inner circle price
cheats are down a level (they're open right now to all he old beta testers too) and I already give them out to anyone who asks

I try to be good. I try to avoid having to do patron-only updates. I dont lock previews behind the wall. no 'free' censored versions. I dont even do the whole "public gets the last copy when the new $50 one gets released" thing that a lot of other projects do.
so, unless I'm gonna take up something completely new like supporter sketches or something.. then what else can I give? :oops:

when you finish the game, the end scene now gives you that code :)

More playtime doesn't always equate to more fun. Take World of Warcraft, the master at stretching out 1 hours worth of content into 200 hours of grind. The main issue I have with it, is that you start with only handjob; if you started with all initial basic options (handjob, blowjob, anal, and vaginal), but had to use each conservatively, that would in my opinion make things better. I find games to be engaging when I have options and my choices have consequences; when you start with only one ability, and its not a very interesting ability at that, it bores me to tears.

To be fair, the last public release was 6 months ago. If the only feedback you got was from Patrons... my suggestion is to do a poll and see how many of them prefer to play with cheats (and if so, which cheats) on; it might be that they found it most enjoyable with cheats on, and as most cheats worked until you changed them in 1.25, its plausible that is where the positive feedback comes. That or, I'm extremely critical of bad gameplay and am tired of seeing it in almost every new game that comes out >.> Then that is just a demon I have to deal with.

I thought the cheat with your name was your Patreon link? Wasn't that the case for the earlier pre v1 builds? (ie patreon/corta). Also, I clicked the button several times, but only when you said click on the name that pops up, does the headstart activate.

Ah gallery mode, available after beating the game. Like most Swiss-Made flash games... ughhhhhh (those have terrible mechanics).

Sexual gratification is based on instant gratification though. Video games are great when they have challenge to them, and challenge entices one to play them longer. Challenge requires concentration and using your brain to solve problems. However, when you are trying to fap, you are concentrating on fapping, and you don't like distractions. Challenge and gameplay are distractions; they force you to jump through hoops, when most of your brain is focused on gratification; not on problem solving. Thus, you need to be very careful in how you design a pornographic title.

You can have interaction, without requiring challenge or gameplay though. Take 3D Sex Villa 2, as an example. It has a lot of interaction, but doesn't force you to do gameplay or challenge. It can be done, if that is the desired direction.

Sex in video games can work, but it only really works if the player doesn't have to jump through hoops to do it. ie Getting the Romance scene in a Bioware title, is a lot of work (and you see nothing to boot).

Flash can't really compete though. Shockwave Flash (SWF) is being deprecated rapidly, and you will likely see no support for it within 5 years. SWF is poorly optimized, runs on a single thread/core, has a cap of 1 GB maximum for RAM usage, rarely provides good support with Video Cards, and has a load of other limitations, whereas Source Film Maker does not. What is however needed, is a new method of creating vector art (that's the stuff SWF uses) with all the benefits inherent in flash, but in a format that is updated and maintained for current OSs. That is why "Creambee" is moving to Unity (another hentai flash game maker), as Unity is widely supported by both its developers and by browsers.

EDIT:

You could send out a personalized (ie not generic boilerplate) PM to each supporter thanking them for your support. Might take a bit of time to write out each message, but it would likely be quite meaningful to people to receive such a PM, from a creator that they support.

Or, you could recognize particular supporters that put in a lot of time and effort, so that the rest of the supporters know that the work and feedback they do is appreciated.

Or, you could create a forum, and give supporters a fancy avatar or title. You do have Discord, so you could do something like that there.

-----

You could do televised MLP sacrifices to the Chaos Gods :P But in all seriousness:

You could suggest, once every 3-6 months or so (so that it doesn't happen too often and doesn't distract too heavily from main projects), to work on a Corta-ized bootleg of some new flash that came out. It is nice to see FYC and BHGH, but a lot of us do like a lot of your older bootlegs, and would love to see some more of those simpler bootlegs of new or old titles.

You could complete one of your old, unreleased bootlegs, or redo a released bootleg. The Night Elf of Hentairella 1 comes to mind. Be nice to see how your new knowledge and skills would work on a second attempt, of a first attempt at a bootlegging or early bootleg titles that you did.

sure, and theres plenty of people who loved that game and were always looking forward to coming back for more.
nobody really knows the secret sauce formula, but it's pacing was probably a factor. more bang for your buck, I suppose..

the grindy "go kill x of thing, forever" base game might not have been much on it's own, but it's hard to argue against wow being more engaging than the sum of it's parts.
maybe time was a factor, maybe not. either way, it's something I'm trying

alright.. but that's what the game was already... isnt it?
and the headstart cheat already gives all the basic moves if you wanna skip the first few sessions it takes to unlock them

yup. good call. :) that's something I'll be taking up, going forward
because even when I ask for feedback, I dont really get much I can actually work with..

the headstart is the only one with a speed-button, but there's more than one way to do all of 'em.
I spent a while adding in variants as well as caps/spaces/nospaces triggers for every single cheat code
I script the extra lines so people have the power to be lazy! :P

"there is no perfect pasta sauce, only perfect pasta sauses" it's no surprise that people's tastes are different, but also what they're hoping to get out of the experience
..not saying I've got all the answers or anything though. we're mostly just making things and seeing what sticks.. :?

after-all, romance books and grown-up movies are still a thing despite the existence of full free on-demand double-barrel extra-fist wham-bam anal 50-inch xxxxx hardcore pornography.. :roll:

recently I've re-organized how my rewards were set up, I think it's a better fit these days
as for the letter-writing campaign .. I already spend hours writing people as it is. I try to take every chance to thank the people who made this all possible, but something like that is a whole bunch of time that's probably better spent making actual games to keep everyone happy ;)

credit listings used to be opt-in. ... and hardly anyone used put their hand up for it.

already done. that's been a thing since we made the discord. :)

sure.. kinda. I let the people decide. that's the system.
I cant just drop everything to go work on something completely different and expect everyone to accept it .. the people vote and we all decide what happens. be-it bootlegs, remasters, roster extensions .. whatever.
(and that resumes after I've got these whim demos done, so people know what they're voting for)
