Homelands~ Main location demo + visual style

Please consider following me only on SubscribeStar or Patreon

Rise and shine! Today I’d like to show you something we’ve been working on for about two weeks. It’s a main location in a style that.. well, that will be our visual style! As you can see, only two first layers are drawn properly. That’s because this picture is huge and it needs some decent time to be finished. Anyway, right now we are making assets out of it.

Since this visual style is not matching the style of characters, I’ve asked another artist to draw them in a different style. We will try something more simple and with less details. Oh, and yes, we have already finished four enemies for now. It’s time to develop the right style and redraw them quickly. Yes, no one is doing that this way. But this is my first 2D project and I learn by making mistakes.

A programmer has finished UI (start menu, pause, and disclaimer) and is working on automatic generation of locations now. We will use it a lot in the future. Consider it a main feature of the game.

Well, I hope the visual style will be finished quite soon. It is a milestone I’d love to left behind and not just because it’s a lot of work. It also allows me to hire more artists and let them work simultaneously. Anyway, see you soon, people!

Homelands! Animation + a little peek on everything

Please consider following me only on SubscribeStar or Patreon

Hello, everybody! It’s been a while since the last post, so I have a lot to tell you. As you can guess, I’ve finished dealing with my exams (you’ll hear about them again in just a month) and now working at full power. Well, let me start.

I found a few new artists. I’m trying to gather the best ones and I’m definitely lucky this time! Also, we have a new animator and she just gave me contacts of another one.

My programmer is working hard and he has done a lot since the last post. Added working enemies, the whole fighting system, NPCs with their routines, changeable controls. A lot of stuff.

Now we have concepts of 4 enemies, 3 of them are ready to be animated and 1 is already in process (snow leopard, pic below). We decided to change the working progress to do things right. First of all, I’ll make a list of animations, then I’ll make sketches of them with an artist and show them to an animator. Then animator gives me a list of pics she needs and I give it to an artist who draws characters for animations. A long and complicated path, but I hope it worth it.

Oh! And two artists are working on the main location right now. It goes so slowly…

As you can see, the work is going. Sooo, thank you for waiting, I guess:) See you soon, people!

Homelands! We are working on visual style! Finally.

Please consider following me only on SubscribeStar or Patreon

What are the basics of all games? Gameplay and visuals. You can’t play any game without rules, rewards and loses – this is an important part. Let’s say Homelands has gameplay. It’s written down, at least~ And what about the visual style? Every game has it. And Homelands is about to get it quite soon, too!

Well, maybe not “quite soon”. It will take some time and a lot of work, of course. I’m not so sure when I will be able to show you the final version, so let’s take a look at the basic variant, one of many. “The basic concept of a visual style” 🙂

P.S.: It will be another week of exams and I’ll come back to you. Everything is good so far. Let’s just sit and wait till this is over. You can give me feedback meanwhile~

Homelands! New concepts! House and a snow leopard

Please consider following me only on SubscribeStar or Patreon

Hello, people! We just finished working on “basic concepts” and I’m ready to show you a couple of pics! There are about 13-15 new pictures I got just in a week, so I can’t show you everything. We finished working on upgradeable house and here you can see one of the stages. Also, I’d like to show you one enemy: a snow leopard.

So, what is ready so far? Concepts of main character’s house. Concepts of 3 enemies (there are 9 of them in total) and 1 friendly NPC. Concepts of 5 different weapons (a friend of mine wants to make them look better. She is working on this right now). Talking about code, our programmer finished working on main character’s basic moves, surroundings (like vertical ladders, cages, basic furniture), portals (from one location to another) and now he’s working on NPC routines.

So far so good. See you later with more exciting text and pics;3

Homelands v2! Info, concepts… Ideas?

Please consider following me only on SubscribeStar or Patreon

Hello, friends~ Remember my Homelands project? Forget everything I did before, I started it over. I know what I want now and a fresh start just makes things better. I know, I like fresh starts…

I just noticed that two weeks passed since my last post! So, what I managed to do in these two weeks? A lot of stuff, actually. I wrote a new design document for this game (it has 20 pages right now), found 3 concept artists and a programmer, wrote another document to define developing stages. The “bones” of the game is already in progress and I’m even ready to show you a concept of an upgradable main character’s house (I really like how it’s going so far).

I’m working, I’m trying, I’m doing. Thank you for your words of support;3

Oh, wait! I almost forgot to tell you what the game is about now. You are playing as a mercenary who helps distant villages to fight raiders. In return you get materials (which you can use to upgrade your house) and sex. Plus, you can capture enemies for talking with them! And fucking them, yes, of course. I missed a lot of exciting details, but I can’t tell you everything right now:)

Added API log in to all remaining games

But they are rather useless… Anyway! Now you can log in to SubscribeStar and Patreon accounts in Forest Fairytales, SLAT, Simple Gloryhole. I tested every link, so everything should work properly.

Young Maria v2.2.7.0! API added, for YM v2 and Old YM

Play online
Download  Online/Offline version | Main Pics Folder for Offline version

You can buy new Access cards for all my games on my SubscribeStar or Patreon (not for YM)

Hello everyone! I finally finished working on SubscribeStar and Patreon API with my friend. As you can see, now you can purchase “Access cards” and get bonuses in all my projects (right now I updated Young Maria v2 and Old Young Maria. In 24 hours I’m going to update Simple Gloryhole, SLAT and Forest Fairytales). You can buy these cards on my SubscribeStar and Patreon and there are three of them: Basic card ($5), Advanced card ($14) and Full card ($24).

Let’s talk about YM a bit more. I can’t monetize YM on Patreon because well they don’t like incest. So, you won’t be able to get bonuses from Patreon card there, sadly. But I managed to create an Offline Authentication system. You go there, log in, get a code, insert a code into downloaded YM and… voila!

UPD 2.2.7.0
Changes:
– Added ability to log in to SubscribeStar account to get bonuses ($5, $14, $24 tiers). All other tiers will be removed soon, but you still can use cheat codes. For some time. Also, you can use special system to log in if you are doing this from downloaded game file (“Offline YM”).
– Removed all “system” tags. They were used with the (temporary) removed hygiene system.
– Added test for P.E. There are three types of the test: jumping, running and playing football. All of them test your Fitness. The system takes a random number and see if your Fitness more or less than this number. Your score is based on how far your Fitness from this random number (min. -15 points, max. 15).
– Added test cheat options for School. Now you can either: Tease your classmate with cleavage (15 Corruption, 1/3 answer); Let him “finger” you (30 Corruption, 2/3 answers); Jerk him off (60 Corruption, 3/3 answers). There is no Reputation or Corruption reward for doing this.

Well, see you soon, people. Have fun~

Tell me if something is not working, by the way!

Important message! Changes!

Well hello there. I want everyone to read this post, because it contains important stuff. First of all, sorry for being away for so long. It won’t happen again and soon I’ll tell you why!

First change: I’m making a pause (temporary!) with Young Maria. It’s still my main project and I know you love it. But I also see that fans are bored since I work on this game for solid 4 years! And I’m also deadly tired and need a fresh air.

Second change: Since I decided to make such pause, I started to work on my other projects and even started a new SFW one to get to know Unity. I’m a developer and I want to improve my skills! Face challenges! Make cool games! And I feel myself live again. More about this – below.

Third change: I’m still trying to make a working code so I can use SubscribeStar and Patreon APIs to make just three subscription tiers, but universal ones. So a subscriber can have access to every my project he’d like (even old ones, like Simply Gloryhole or Forest Fairytales). I’m trying my best here so you can change your subscription plan as soon as possible.

Fourth change: Since I’m working on something besides Young Maria, I can return to Patreon! It’s a big move to me. Some of new fans may wonder, so I’ll answer: YM was blocked from Patreon because of extreme fetishes. And if I’ll add these three universal subscription tiers, I’ll have to leave BuyMeACoffee, Gumroad, Boosty. They don’t have APIs to work with. But it’s just thoughts for now!

So, what was I doing all this time? A lot happened and still happening, but it doesn’t even matter. YM is a great game, but I’m so tired of it that I barely could force myself to work on it… So I decided to take a pause. And now I’m working hard again:) I spend days and nights on studying, talking with programmers, fighting with artists, learning C# and writing design documents (and I’m getting pretty good at this~). Pic below is related to this new SFW project.

I know that almost all of you are fans of YM. But I also see that less and less people really play it today. So why don’t we stop for a moment and try something new, hm? Thank you all for being with me all this time. Making changes is always scary as hell. Why don’t you mention me in our Discord server (https://discord.gg/GC37yVQ) and tell me what you are thinking about this?

With love,
MilkyNail (MariaMod)

Young Maria v2.2.6.0! Crime mechanics! Well, the base~

Play online
Download  Online/Offline version | Main Pics Folder for Offline version

Changed links for YM v2 and old YM! You can find links to new and old versions in the game

Hello, everyone! These weeks I spent mostly on implementing crime mechanics and working with my friend on SubscribeStar API. Yes, I want to make subscriptions that will work better and faster for players. I also want to change subscription tiers themselves! It’s just plans, but keep that in mind, please.

Okay, time to say a word about the new mechanics. I worked on them a huge amount of time. It may look pretty simple for you, but the system itself is very good and now I can add a lot of different crime scenes in the game easily! I won’t tell you all details except what you have to know. I’d love to hear your ideas about what we can do with this new system! I have a certain scheme right now, sure, but I never forget good advice.

UPD 2.2.6.0
Changes:
– Added three new variables: beautyBoost, fitnessBoost, intellectBoost. All of them are being used in crime mechanics. They are changing every turn and have no min. or max. borders.
– Added a «link for crimes». It has the following structure: The link text + The amount of tries allowed + The result of try (Success/Fail/Crit fail) + The crime with info about it + The basic chance of success and the Beauty/Fitness/Intellect bonus (the stat/2). Also, the “crime scene” has a hidden success paragraph and sometimes a Crit fail paragraph. Crit fail (always 15% chance, can be changed later) means that you were caught or you broke your tools or whatever.
– If you were caught you are going to have a talk with a policeman. He lists the crimes and you will have to pay the fines and/or go to Jail for a few days (depends on the crimes). If you are going to the Jail, you will be changed into the start clothes and your Relationship with parents will decrease a bit. Maybe I’ll add prison robes or something later.
– Jail is a bit empty right now. All you can do there is to sit and sleep. Nothing interesting. For now!
– Added a list of crimes. You can watch it in the Help menu. It has only Pickpocketing in it for now, but the whole list will be remade later, of course.
– Added seven crime-related widgets: CrimesList, CrimeNumbersToWords, CrimeWarning, CrimeSentence, CrimeChance, CrimeTry, CrimeTimer. It was rather hard. All of them make the base of these new mechanics and work altogether. I tried to make them both functional and compact.
– You can try new crime mechanics in the Bedroom. The last link will bring you to the temporary passage, where you will be able to try Pickpocketing, Crit fail, Jail and so on.

Well, like I said, it’s just a start. A base. It was a certain success and I hope you will enjoy the result as much as I enjoy the process. See you in two weeks;3

Young Maria v2.2.5.0! Work scenes + Park mating;3

Play online
Download  Online/Offline version | Main Pics Folder for Offline version

Changed links for YM v2 and old YM! You can find links to new and old versions in the game

Hello, everyone! I finally finished my exams and I’m very happy to return home. I’m making some changes to my site right now, so it may be a little slow for some period of time. Sorry for inconvenience, I’m doing the best I can, you know this.

Another thing I want to tell you is that I’m starting to work on a big new cluster of mechanics. Jail, crimes, cops, sentences, bribing, pickpocketing, exhibitionism (yeah, yeah, you asked me for so damn long, I know:3). It’s a massive work and I try to figure out what to do with all ideas I have right now. I’m not sure that you will see something in the next update, but I’ll try to implement this quickly. I need to say that it’s an important mechanic for YM v2. Meanwhile, let’s see what I managed to add in the previous two weeks!

UPD 2.2.5.0
Changes:
– Added an event for waitress job. A visitor may slap your ass when you pass by and you can either shush at him or wink back, getting tips. Yes, there’s no Corruption check.
– Fixed the Help menu a bit. Added a new article – Cooking.
– Improved food widget “Eat” a little. If Maria is having a free lunch in Canteen, the same food won’t disappear from her bag. In addition, free food is working as it was intended now.
– Added an event for lifeguard job. You have to save someone’s life and you actually do this. In reward, you get 1 Fitness point.
– Added the Dreams scenes to the list of scenes. Also changed the required Corruption from 90 to 80 points. I remind that there are 8 different scenes with different fetishes.
– Added a non-consensual scene that you can find working as a lifeguard (on the Beach). Make sure the non-con is turned on in settings and your Work Experience is more than 30. This scene contains 4 new gifs.
– Started working on the Jail. Added a group of processing widgets, crime list widgets, etc. I’ll work on it more later – it’s a very important mechanic.
– Added a scene for bartender job. A drunk man finds a hair in his drink and you can either change the drink or distract him with boobs and remove the hair. The second option rewards you with $5 and requires no Corruption or Work Experience points.
– Added a new location in the Park – Dog Area. It’s open from 7:00 to 23:00 and you can see this location only with Bestiality turned on in settings.
– In the Dog Area, you can hide in bushes in order to catch and play with some dog. They vary in sizes, breeds and moods (from “Cold” to “Frisky”). You can pet them, touch them (handjob), suck them off and mate with them. Earn trust of these dogs in order for more. You’ll see different scenes for every dog’s mood (there are three of them). Each action requires from 0 (petting) to 50 (mating) Corruption points.
– Added a “List of scenes” button to the left bar menu in the very beginning so players can check it right after stating the game.

Well, see you later, folks! Join our Discord server if you still didn’t do this! You always can ask me a question there, just don’t forget to mention @MilkyNail.
