Weta and Red Lion are not in game yet, I should have removed them from the Encycloedpia so it won't casuse confusion.

I will put more hints into the Encyclopedia. Resources function aren't fully developed yet.

You need a more scout friendly monster. It might not be in game yet :)
Not sure I understand.
We need to obtain a species to enable this intelligence feature.
I hear you. I will improve the "Explore" feature.
Food is needed in all stages, but later on we will have better monsters, from discovering or breeding. And also there are other features that can help with getting food.
Yes, food indicator will be available in Diary.

I liked searching for the creatures, I think I clicked on just about every part of the mountains in the different regions looking for the Red Lion!. The encyclopedia tips guided me to each one, had a little trouble figuring out what counted as jungle on the map. Really like the art style and direction you are headed with this game. Having to decide how to balance exploration, then scouting and hunting while new creatures mature on your turn sounds fun.

Sorry, Red Lion is not implmeneted onto the map. It can only be breed currently, from v2.09 onward.

Food is consumed by the army, the monsters.

Slwoly, but surely, this is beginning to shape up to be an interesting game!

Could do with some clearer, precise instructions of what to do, or what to expect first, since I got a little lost on what I was supposed to be doing.

Gotcha. I am working to improve the UI and UX. Probably gonna use more popups and a main storyline to introduce each feature. Much like how we introduced the Secret Garden.

Love this game.

Could you provide a download link though?
Newgrounds sizes the game weirdly for me. I play on my laptop and have less pixels than most modern desktops.
I NEVER run against walls.

It is in there. Both Skitz and Red Lion are available through "Bonding". Sorry I didn't give you a clear description for the feature. Bonding is basically to mix and match species to get what you want. There is some amount of info on Pregnant Status and Offspring in the Diary section.

Playing it again, the voice actress is nice, but the cut and paste of short clips is jarring. Maybe try to get a few longer, maybe around 5 second long clips to add onto it?

I am improving the UI so we can access the essential info easier. Right now not much to walk through without the core battle gameplay, but Explore is to find new species through the map, whereas Bonding is for building a relationship with a specific one under your possession, as well as mixing and breeding a new species.

hentaiwriter Wrote:Glad to see you're still pushing on with this :D what's your ETA for the completed game?

Hehe I am having fun, thanks to everyone's support. Hopefully I can get the demo out in 3~4 months, and then completion in early next year. Though I have designed it so we can keep expanding the world, stories, and species for as long as people support us. I want to make the Tentacle Encyclopedia as rich as possible.

I have fixed some Flash issue on handling audio in the newer version, the cut and paste you mentioned might be due to lag problem before the fix.

Having run across the gifs in other places like exhentai, I think it could use a few more in-between frames to smooth things out. There seems to be a lot of stuttering and framing, but that might be me.

Nah,It´s not just you man. From the gifs I´ve also seen in sad panda he probably uses 5 frames per scene in each animation.

Hi there! I've really been enjoying this game since its public release. I've been wonedering if maybe you were interested in traslating it to Spanish, since I'm a native speaker and, although I'm currently busy with college, I still have some free time every now and then and I would be very pleased to help out with the translation of these project or any other project you happen to be working on for that matter lol (for a negotiable price of course, I'm after all, a broke college student xd).
