Flotus Wrote: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).

Thank you for the offer mate! We will have lots of text from bonding stories, I doubt we will have enough funding ever to translate to too many languages while keeping the quality. But I will surely keep that in mind.

hmm, I have a few idea suggestions for the tentacle game.

1st)
would you be willing to implement some sort of automatic food gathering group? for example how you designate which monster is in the battle army, could a similar process be added for food gathers? I predict it'll be quite tedious later on in the game to not have such a feature.

2nd)
add a sorting method by species/level/ect in order to prevent tabbing though multiple pages to get to that one you want or need to select. (most definitely needed for this sort of game)

3rd)
population caps? maybe for each species? with the cap expanding when you conquer a new area?

4th)
tutorial of how to use bonding and monster breed mixing? (it's a pain to learn how to do this one with how much stamina it uses) [and I'm still not 100% sure how to make the cross breeds.. though I have a rough idea]

5th)
adding a sort of recipe list for how to make each cross breed. one that needs unlocking either though events or bumbling across the right mixture. (probably pretty important)

BUG!

1st)
if you have 2 or more of the 80% chance explore stamina reduction monster than you can cheat your stamina up by exploring in your garden where a monster doesn't reside. (doesn't 100% work every time, but does just enough so I can regain max stamina AND BEYOND!!!! :shock: )

in relation to this bug if you glitch your stamina past the max capacity the round number changes even though you've yet to rest.

Sorry for the lack of update~

1st) The idea seems really creative! I think I can incorporate something like that through some species's specialty/benefit.
2nd) Ay, I will add it to my task list, but can't say it would be priority
3rd) Food is currently in use as population limiter
4th) Got cha, I will improve UI/UX this month.
5th) As above

I think you could be playing an older version consider you mentioned 80%(now its 50%). That bug should have been fixed for a while.

hmm, any chance the combat could be something other than lane based?
I mean I don't hate it, but it lacks originality which the rest of your game has in surplus.

personally I think a hybrid reaction time / team turn based combat might fit best, so something similar to the first 2 paper Mario games?

some other options might be light RTS like battles, street fighter like fighting, and though I doubt this one is feasible without near tripling the game size but maybe something like pikmin's battle mechanic?

idk just my 2 cents. just feels like lane based combat is done to death and is bringing down the game's overall potential. *shrug*

Thank you for your lovely suggestions. I have taken a look into those games. They looked quite fun. Though I have been revising the core battle gameplay for 4 years now...I have to say its time to settle for one design. On top of that, I really love what I am making. And I am quite confident we have some originalities compare to other similar types of games.

The ideas require another major revision, I am afraid I would prefer to focus on the more important aspect of the game from now on, the H-contents ^O^

heh, maybe the suggestions might help you with the next game you make. (considering it sound unlikely you'll stop at these 2 alone)
ah well, at the very least I gave you some new game titles to play and enjoy. :P

on the topic oh sex content, any ideas how you might approach the incest aspect of it? I mean she is banging her own children with the bonding feature. >_>

but the question I suppose I'm asking is will there be an effect with the birthing of the next generation? hmm, better said maybe will inbreeding be encouraged, discouraged, or be ignored like it has thus far. (aside from the gene splicing thing to create new species I mean)

for example say you have Lilith bone and give birth to the same species as the parent, and the parent was also a child of hers. game mechanic wise will this be encouraged, discouraged, or just plain ignored and have no noticeable effects that differ form Lilith breeding with a random tentacle monster that's not one of hers?

personally I think the best way to approach this might be high risk high reward. so maybe have a 70/30 chance that the first generation become better than their parents and the ratio lower with each successive generation. this should not only create a soft cap on any bonuses (stat or otherwise) but also forces the player to deal with the occasional/frequent duds incest breeding without gene splicing might bring.

Really interesting game I have to say. Really curious what is still going to come.
But the exploring is quite random sometimes. Some kind of "markers" for already explored monsters and their areas would be awesome (like with the loot fields once you found them)
Otherwise I think I'm going to back this one.

I'll second some kind of tutorial system, it'll make things somewhat easier. Lilith seems content to enjoy just about anything that moves and it's quite hot!

One thing, on the bonding: some have detailed explanations, and some are "encounter1, encounter2", it's a little weird. Barring that it's fun and enjoyable, just...needing some help for beginners would be helpful.

The game seems to freeze occasionally. I was wanting to bond with the slime eye but it said "monster not here" then I couldn't appear to do anything. Also not sure what good the herbs are for right now since while I can collect them I can't seem to do anything with them

I do love the game, I just think the beginning could use a little direction better instead of more or less put on the player to find things out the hard way
