Revamp Released

So, that's done.

In addition to fix the bugs that will certainly arise, in the next few days/weeks, we'll expand on some of the new systems (secrets and relationship, mainly, also some visual goodies ^^), finish the VIP systems and then move on to the next major project which is the battle system rework

I am also looking for people to write small dialogues for the girls, please contact me if you wish to participate

Tutorial for the new Brothel System

 Welcome to this small tutorial about the new features of the complete rework of the brothel system we made for the upcoming revision.
We'll take this step by step :

The introduction scenes of the game haven't changed, but if you pay attention, you'll notice that the girl prices have varied wildly :

traits and skills now are taken into account by the price calculation, some are getting the prices lower, some larger.

Ok Let's get to the main part of this, we'll look at the brothel menu and how it works

So Let's see the buttons one by one
-Sign in is to let your main character work at the brothel for the day, it'll skip directly to next day.
-Assign Brothel Job is where you'll tell girls to work a specific job, we'll look at it later on
-Girl Management gives you all the stats about the girls you have, allow you to change their equipment or move them through brothels
-Brothel Info gives you some useful data about how to manage your brothel , we'll take a look in a sec.
-Secrets is a new part of the game, that'll be our last stop for today, i won't spoil you ^^

So Brothel Info

General Brothel Info will give you some basic data about your brothel ( number of beds, of workroom ,...)
Market info is now very important, it shows you what's the general population your customers come from
Different customer classes have different traits and different requirements. Also if your reputation increases in certain classes ( the green bar), it'll also cause increases and decreases in related classes.
(If you have several sailors come in and be satisfied, you'll get more sailors but also more Ship Officers ^^)

Another important part of Brothel Info menu is Brothel Management, but we'll get to check that a bit later.

For now let's quickly check Girl Management, and especially the stat menu
So first let me explain reputation and popularity.
Reputation is a general stat for your girl, indicating both how well she's viewed by the various levels of society of the ingame world, and how well she can fit into them.

As she works in the various jobs and satisfies her customers, she'll pick up reputation points, filling the bar.
But when the bar is full, she'll actually need some training from the Brothel Owner Guild to learn how she must behave in the higher levels of society.
Higher Reputation girls will be more appreciated by higher society customers ^^

Popularity is simpler, it's a general idea of how much people want to see the girl. It's brothel-related ( if you move a girl, her popularity goes back to 0 as she isn't known in this brothel's surroundings)
and will modify how much customers come to the brothel, and how much they try to choose her.

Finally, lust is a new variable similar to health and morale, influencing how the girl accepts work. With high lust, she'll accept more often than with low lust.
But she'll also be more tempted by indecent proposals of customers when she's working other jobs.

Now for the main part of this tutorial, the brothel assign menu 
Here you see most of the available jobs for the girls in a brothels. Let's focus on a few of them which are new or have changed :

-Hostess : She's the one greeting your customers in. she'll ensure that the more important customers are served first (according to your orders on who's the most important)
and will charm them so that they stay patient while waiting in line

-Bath Attendant: Onsen can now be available for customers and bath attendants are here to ensure that their stay is enjoyable

-Bouncer: Bouncers block entry of the brothels to customers you don't want inside (you have several choices)

-Guard : Guards are wandering aroung the brothels ensuring that girls do their job and that customers don't cause a ruckus

That's it for the basic description, let's now look at the new assign system for a job : 
It's mostly simiar to the old menu with two main changes :
1) an access to the brothel management menu on the left. We'll look at it later
2) The Day on top.
The new assignment system works on a weekly schedule, if you assign your girl to work on sunday, she'll work on every sunday till you remove her from the schedule.
It takes a bit more work to set it up, but when you get a schedule that works for you, you'll only have minor adjustments to make ^^
Tip: If you want to completely rework your schedule for a specific job, press "R", it will unassign all girls for that job for all week.

Some Jobs have a secondary job, it's a job that does not appear in the main list from earlier (beacause of a lack of room) and isn't needed for the main job to work, but can give additional bonus.
The secondary jobs are Dungeon Mistress for Dungeon and Waitress for Cook and Bartender.
to access them, click or press enter when having the job name selected as seen in this picture : 
It'll send you to the new job :
 and click again to go back to the original menu

 Dungeon Mistress increases the efficiency of the dungeon, while Waitress adds her charm to boost the efficiency on both Cook and Bartender ( they share the same Waitresses)

Ok Let's finally get a look at the brothel management menu. Here you will have options on how to manage your brothel ( which kind of food and drink to serve, what bouncers check the customers for which is the example in the pictures, ...)
For bouncer, you can for example limit the entry based on gold, based on specific social classes or physical trait.
once you've chosen what you want to control, you'll get the secondary menu to tune it in more details :

 And last, we check out the secret menu. 
 Girls keep plenty of secrets from you ( they might have disobeyed some orders, stole some of your cash and other stuff). Occasionally they reveal the secrets to you ( voluntarily or while under interrogation), and this menu allows you to decide how you want to deal with that ( punish the secret owner, reward the person who told it to you,...)

That's all for today, The new revision is coming in the next few days at most. If you want me to clarify some points, please don't hesitate to ask questions. I'll talk more about the future plans after this is released.

Beta Test for Revamp

For those who are interested in the progress of our revamp of the game and want to beta test it  for us here is what you do.

Download our game using svn client
You'll need to install Tortoise SVN.

Make a folder where you want the game to be stored. I suggest somewhere accessible, like your desktop. Right-click this folder and select SVN Checkout.
It'll ask for an address.
Type in this as the address:

For the revamp after the game is downloaded you will see a folder called Future Revamp copy the data in that folder copy and paste it in the current version folder and you will be able to play the revamp beta.

If you spot a bug you can report it one of several ways

You can talk to use devs using out Chatango @

You can post it on this blog as a reply.

Register on our forums and report the bug there.
