February 15th Update

One more update from dsp3000…

Just a brief update today, as there isn’t much to report unless you would like me to describe what working through 22 pages of production notes and over 3000 html files looks like. I could procrastinate and tell you how much coffee I’m consuming, but ultimately you just need to believe me when I say that it’s really the most tedious and least enjoyable part of the process.

My goal is always to release my games with zero errors, so the past few days have been all about testing and making changes to the critical files that make the game function properly.

In case anybody was wondering; making multi episode games with variables that carry over to create other options and consequences is basically a massive headfuck. Predictable really, but hopefully worth it. I’m working through the game file by file, checking all the links, testing all the checkfiles and making sure the score variables increase and decrease where they should.

As previously mentioned, during the past 10 months or so, I have been producing two episodes at once. This means there is a whole lot of material to go back and check over.

It’s not always possible to catch every single error, particularly as I work in a very fluid way, often deviating and making plot changes as I am working through creating all the images and files. But I will catch them if I can.

In terms of the release date, I don’t think that I’ll get everything completed satisfactorily for next Friday. But I am reasonably confident that Friday 1st March is still achievable.

I wish it didn’t take so long but it really just does.

Until the next update, I have included a few more preview images.

  1. Well it looks like we’re finally going to see Bridgette naked… in March (maybe). In any case good work dsp3000. Can’t wait to play this.

  2. We can wait for another couple weeks. I’d rather have a game that runs smooth anyway. It’s rough when you play a long ways into a game and then all the sudden hit a blank screen or error message so I appreciate the effort to make a game right the first time. Thanks for the update. Looking forward to this game when its released . If you ever need a volunteer tester Im available. Just throwing that out there. I’d still have no problem paying for it for what it’s worth. Good luck finishing up.

    1. Don’t fret, there are over 3000 to choose from.
      Then another 3000 plus to choose from for the next part.

      When I close my eyes all I see is pixels.

    1. Academy Part 2 is already out. It just isn’t free. The only Academy game that is free currently is #1.

      Out of the supposedly 5 Academy games, only parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 are out (but only #1 is free like I mentioned and this only happened somewhat recently).

      1. Yeah, I don’t really think it’s fair to paying members to knowingly release a game with errors or missing images, then release a patch to fix it.
        Still a few images to complete too anyhow.

        I’ll be back on it all day tomorrow so I’m trying as hard as I can.
        🙂

  3. You should not let comments by people rush completion until you are comfortable with your work. Best of luck with all your fine work.

  4. Any chance on seeing another Leanna game? She is my favourite model, and Kristen is pretty hot as well. Any chance of a team up game? Maybe as an undercover investigative reporter into a strip club, or seedy underworld? Could be lots of opportunity for scenarios. You games and graphics are great. I love playing them! Keep up the amazing work, and I look forward to the new games, and perhaps more Leanna? Cheers!

  5. Bridgette is nice, but Lola might be my favorite of your characters. This teaser is gonna get me to subscribe again.

  6. Well I suppose it will be worth the wait. All the best dsp3000. Just take care of yourself and dont work too much even if it means a delay of a few days or a week or even more than a week or even more. There is on hurry. Just dont stress out yourself and get sick again. All the best and take care.

  7. DSP, if you’re going to iron out the earlier Academy parts at some point, let me mention this: I was a little disappointed that oral sex with Alicia in Part 4 (in the elevator) would inevitably lead to failure. Such a great scene should not be part of a “failed” path, but be integrated into a working playthrough of day 4, IMO. Felt like a small design error to me.

    On the other hand, if Alicia gets similar content at a later date (in Date with Bridgette or Academy Day 5), that would be a way to make up for it (aside from fixing Day 4).

    One question that seems to be on people’s mind is, will there be a threesome with Bridgette and Didi or not? But let’s not get too fixated on one fantasy, I’m sure whatever DSP decides to do will be great. Heck, if it was me I’d probably go for a crowning ending of the Academy series and fuck all the teacher types at once (the new principal, Bridgette and Didi), preferably even in the teacher meeting room (office), thus making me the king of my workplace, but that’s just me. DSP is pretty good at making it believable rather than going completely over the top, which is commendable.

    Oh, this is going to be good… :-}))

    1. I’m one of the people hoping for a threesome with Didi and Bridgette (as mentioned in my post last week) but I can somewhat understand if it doesn’t happen since there has been conflicting messages in the game.

      Working against a threesome is that Bridgette seems to be very into monogamy and gets upset by the mention of threesomes or any sexual relationship that you’ve had before or actually do have.

      Working for a threesome is that Bridgette and Didi both put their hands on your lap in one of the Academy series, Bridgette mentions that she isn’t into women but she doesn’t know unless she tries, Didi only is invited if 1 event/choice happens which seems to indicate something will happen with both Bridgette & Didi (hopefully you will be involved in this), Bridgette hugs Didi amorously, and Didi cares a lot about Bridgette since she threatened/warned you at some point that she would kick your ass.

  9. Excuse the double post, the silly spam blocker withheld my first post for over 10 minutes, so I posted again (with slight alterations to the text, hoping it would pass this time), and a few seconds later *both* posts appeared. You may delete one.

  10. @DSP3000, will a walk-thru be available on the same day as Bridgette #3?

    As the series gets longer, the parts get more and more difficult to complete successfully and obtain a code for the next part since as the parts increases just because something that did back in #1 affects the outcome of #2 which will affect the outcome of #3. For example, let’s say in #1, during the choices you had the opportunity to look at the redhead in the bar but decided to be a gentleman/nice to Bridgette and not look at her at all. Seeing the images that you included in last week’s blog post of the redhead, this might come to bite you in Bridgette #3… and then Bridgette #4 (or vice versa where you decided to look at the redhead back in part 1, this might affect any possible positive grand finale.
