December 30th Update

As I said in my last blog post, the next main game will be Rachel Part 3, but there will also be three smaller games released alongside it. Two of these games are already finished, so it seems appropriate to begin giving details on those.

The first smaller game will be entitled ‘Kelly – Solo’. You will be controlling Kelly under the guise of the narrator as we watch what things she gets up to while spending an evening alone. Depending on the choices the player makes, some of these can get quite naughty. Or she can just go to bed.

There are two different endings for the player to find.

December 16th Update

Time to announce what’s coming next from vdategames.

My intention was of course to do these announcements last week, but hotfile was shut down and I had to use my free time reuploading every game on the site. Players should now find three different new hosts for each free game.

Onto the announcements…

The next main, new game created for the site will be Rachel Part 3. It will probably be the last Rachel game, as I like the idea of doing a trilogy, though that doesn’t mean she won’t appear in smaller roles.

I am aiming for something similar to my Maddison game in terms of size and structure. For instance, I like the idea of a whole act for the sex, but with lots of variations, mini-games and rewards. You should also expect a similar amount of locations as there were in Maddison.

The Rachel game will not be alone however! I will actually be releasing a small collection of games this time around, rather than just one. Rachel will be the largest, but there will also be two to three smaller games released with it. Their sizes will be closer to my office party game (Alex and Sophie) or Tammy. I’m not too sure how many there will be exactly, but one is already completed, so there will be at least two released.

I will be announcing more details about these over the next few blog posts. I’m not ready to announce a release date just yet, but starting in the new year, there will be updates with preview picture on a weekly basis.

November 16th Update

Only a brief post today to announce the upcoming events on vdategames.

The next game will be a free game release, and as many have correctly predicted, it will be Zoe. It will be available to play for all on Monday, December 2nd.

Since it was surprisingly popular last year, I will also be doing the advent calendar this year, starting on December 1st.

I also have a new version of the members section nearly ready to upload, so members will see a change during the next few weeks. No new content will be added, but it should look much nicer and more appealing.

Final thing to say is that I am also working on the next game (or is it games? :)) for the members section.They will most likely be available in the new year.

September 16th Update

It looks like things are finally back to normal.

The website has been added to the same package I use for the main site and epoch have finished everything they need to do to give members access.

If you signed up previously, you should be able to log in now. If you are still having issues, please contact epoch via epoch.com. They will have your purchase registered in their databases and will be able to give you access.

I have also switched the pages back so new members can sign up now if they wish.

Again, my sincerest apologies for this issue, but know that it was beyond my control. I have now severed every connection I have to hosgator and they will never darken my towels again.

OK happy face_full

September 14th Update – Bad hostgator!

So here’s a newsflash – hostgator are a terrible company. There was a time when they were good, when I would have happily endorsed them. That time is not now.

A few months ago they announced to me that they would be changing the way my hosting package with them worked. This wouldn’t be so bad if they moved me to an equivalent sized service, but instead they downgraded me and said that to ‘upgrade’ to what I had would be $140 dollars a month extra.

They also appear to have fired a massive amount of their staff as it took 7 hours for them to email be back and I had to wait 25 minutes to IM tech support (used to be 30 minutes for a reply and a 3 minute wait to IM).

Many of you may remember similar issues with the main site a couple of months ago.

So here’s what’s happening right now :

– Hostgator is choking the amount of people who can access the members section at any one time.

– I am angry

– I am upgrading to their $140 a month plan for 1 month, then cancelling my account. I shall integrate everything with my dreamhost account as soon as I can, which currently hosts the main free site.

– The upgrade could take 24 to 72 hours.

NOTE : if you keep refreshing the members area, you should get through eventually! Keep trying and you may have some luck.

UPDATE : If I upgrade through hostgator, I also have to install all my own server software. What the hell?!!

I am also talking with epoch right now about the possibility of transferring the members area to the main one, rather than having it on vdg-offsite.com

My deepest apologies for any issues members are having, but know that I am just as frustrated and angry as you are right now.

September 13th Update

Jennifer has now been released.

Because this game is a little different, I’m calling what I uploaded today a beta. I’ve thoroughly checked the game, so I know there’s no dead links or similar major problems, but it is possible that a few of the sound files may be incorrect.

I will upload a slightly refined version on Monday, which will also give an option to display images instead of videos if anyone is having problems with that aspect.

A free demo is available in the games section for those of you who want to try it out.

EDIT : Hostgator have sent me an email saying that the members area is getting too many requests (because they changed the way the account works. Without asking me.) I’m looking into a temporary upgrade, but in the long term I’m guessing I’ll move the hosting over to the main site’s package.

For now, just keep refreshing as it should eventually load.

September 1st Update

I was planning on a full trailer this week featuring some of the animated segments of the Jennifer game, but my computer has been a bit of an ass ever since Thursday.

As a result, there’s no trailer this week, but here’s a small sample from one of the animated scenes : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpaPYISUNXY

The official release date will be announced next week, along with a full trailer and a final set of preview pics. Expect the release date to be around September the 11th and Friday the 13th (wow. Those are two bad sounding dates. The game should be good though and released then).
