Harem c6m3 will be great!… but late



As I’m trying to put everything together, I’m coming to realize how involved and complex the Noemi/Samantha/Cecilia and Vanessa arcs truly are.  Both would have been enough on their own to be the centerpiece of a release but I am determined to get them both out to you in June!   Work is going as fast as I can do it, but the release will likely be a few days later than usual.

My usual goal is to get the new release out by the 5th of every month, with the 10th as the latest ‘acceptable’ date to get the new content out.  I think I’ll be able to release on or about the 10th, but there isn’t much of a chance to get it out by the 5th.  So please be patient, the content will come, just a few days later than you all are used to.  But I’m pretty sure you’ll find it to be worth the wait!

And as always, the public release is tied into the patreon release.  When c6m3 is ready for my patrons, c6m2 will be released to the public.  And from all the feedback I’ve gotten on c6m2 from my patrons, it is worth the wait as well!

And a few teasers from 6m2 to let you know what you’re waiting for!

Noemi wins!

In an absolutely dominating finish, Noemi wins the c6m3 poll! After you find her again, you'll be spending some 'quality' time with her in the extra scene this month! Should push the scene count to 6m3 to about 15!



And of course, a few teasers from the c6m2 content for those who haven't been able to play it yet!  It will go public in about two weeks, but if you want to play it right now go to my patreon page and support the development of Harem!

May poll very close... as always!

Every month I poll my patrons for the content they want to see in upcoming content. Which woman they want to see all of in upcoming content! This month, Noemi, Rhea/Alena, Samantha and Kathleen all made it to the final round of voting. Currently Noemi has a slight lead over most of the other women, and poor Kathleen is being left in the dust! But it's way too close to call it. If you're already my patron, make sure to take the time to cast your vote. If you aren't supporting Harem, any pledge of $2 or more will get you access to the poll.

If you pledge $5 or more, you'll get instant access to the c6m2 release, and if you continue your support, you'll get access to all the new content as soon as it's ready!

Of course, more teasers from c6m2 to let you know what you're missing!

c6m3 Status update!

A short status update. Usually the development cycle for Harem starts about the 10th of each month, running for 3 weeks of development and then a week of testing before release about the 5th. Usually debug on the 6-7th, and then I get my weekend for the month from the 8th-10th before starting up again. Got the writing itch early this month and started work pretty much immediately, and we’re already up to 50 pages and about 20 images created already! So c6m2 should be a good sized released.

Something which should be interesting to all the old fans. c6m2 will also be the end of the old content. We’ve been doing about 60/40 new and old content working our way up to this point, but c6m3 will start to break into completely new territory. Things like the final submission of Cecilia, training in The King’s Pleasure and a great deal more will be new for everyone. A very exciting time!

And as always, if you want to play the new content immediately, I would love your support through Patreon. My patrons have already been playing c6m2 for a week now and the feedback has been very positive. If you want to help me create even more content, any pledge of $5 or more will get you instant access to c6m2 release, and there’s higher tiers which will unlock all the scenes or special bonus scenes!

Thanking and planning!



First, a huge thank you to everyone supporting Harem!  When I started making this so many years ago, it was a fun hobby for me.  Last year, I thought maybe I'd get a few bucks here and there from fans by putting this on Patreon.  Never thought that I could actually live off of making my own erotic game.  But we just broke $3,000 in pledges today, and I just want to say thank you for all your support!  And the women of Harem do as well, they'd just be fantasies in the back of my mind without your help!

Onto what we have planned for c6m3.  The major push of c6m3 will be to get everyone in your harem back.  Samantha, Noemi and Vanessa will be finished this month even if I have to work 15 hour days!  I'm hoping to get Ariel, Cecilia and Diana as well, but that's bubble atm.  There's also additional content planned for Angelica, Sarah, Eleanor, Isabella, and whoever you choose through the poll this month.  We'll move Rachel a step closer and investigate more of the Eldari, but Rachel won't be finished until the end of chapter 6 and the Eldari until chapter 7.

I've released another bug-fix version to my patrons, c6m2.2.  Change log will be in the patron-only post as well as the download link.

Once again, a massive thank you to everyone whose supporting Harem!

Harem c6m2 released to Patrons! Public version upgraded to Harem c6m1.



Harem c6m2 is ready for release to our patrons!  This is a larger than usual release for us, featuring 18 new scenes, nearly 300 pages of content and over 300 new images!  Especially large considering that t51b’s schooling went mad which left the vast majority of content on my shoulders.  But it got done, and I hope you all enjoy it!

Harem c6m2 finally puts Terra back into your harem, after what seems like months of her missing.  The main plot is entirely moving through her in chapter 6, and you finally start to learn some of what’s really going on in this strange land.  And of course, bed just about every woman you meet on the way!  Hiro has also worked on a few sidequests, helping to clean up some of the pieces leftover after the big fight and starting to introduce the mysterious Eldari into the story.

I’m also trying to improve the content, or at least let you all select your own challenge.  In the systems menu you’ll find a slider called difficulty.  Increase it and the enemies level increases, giving you a truer RPG experience if you wish.  Decrease it if you’re just in for the erotica!  No penalty for lower difficulty, this is all just ‘play as you want’ design.




c6m2.0
Content additions
-The quest to recover Terra is completed, ending with a dramatic invasion of your enemies stronghold. Path includes 3 scenes  (Betsy, Melony, and Danielle/Teresa) before finally getting Terra back into your harem.
-2x scenes per route to ‘help’ Terra back into her place.
-A scene set rewarding Jessica for her help in the Temple Mons. Will either involve you and Donnie/Tomas or Kathleen, depending on if you kept the other man in your party.
-Additional sequence to move Rachel into your base. With a fairly unique scene at the end.
-A sidequest to introduce the player to the mysterious Eldari species and another to clean up the mess from the invasion and make Denai safe (for you).
-A scene with Donna and Terra, having some 'fun' while 'helping' Terra find her place in your harem again
-289 pages of new content
-311 images added
-18 new scenes added to the game and 2 bonus scenes
-Added in a difficultly slider under System to add/subract levels from your enemies.  Very much in beta state!

Bug Fixes
-Unbroke Kathleen's possession during combat in Denai
Retcon
-Added a bit of Teresa text pre and post Tentas to show her becoming more extreme

And with a new release being sent out to my patrons, the release they had been playing becomes the public release.  Harem c6m1 starts with you just getting to your new allies base in the Denai province, under constant attack from the other side.  You’ll need to find a way to not only survive, but recover Terra from their insidious/compassionate hands.  In doing so, you start to get the first hints that not all is as it seems in this new land.  In doing so, meet (and have sex with) quite a few new characters and find out more about the reclusive Tenta order.


c6m1
Content additions
-The quest to recover begins!  You'll have to rely on your new allies to get her back!
-Terra isn't the only slave taken from you in Corsix.  Samantha, Cecilia and Rhea/Alena are in Denai and you will get one of them back during 6m1
-A chance to meet the strange Tenta order and learn more about them.  Quite a bit more about their leader, Ulya.
-A new area means new slaves, and you get to start the questing to add Rachel into your harem!
-As my patrons voted for, there will be a new Jessica/Heather threesome scene
-An additional sidequest line to bring the fight to those hunting you.
-12 new scenes, 2 bonus scenes added
-262 new images
-315 new pages of text

Retcon
-Your second fight with Betsy and Melony occurs after you visit your base the first time.

Bug Fix
-You will stop getting notifications about the Fiona's Blood Lash quest after turning it in.

Harem c6m2 enters Beta testing!

After a few long days of coding, I've been able to get Harem c6m2 stable enough to start beta testing. The resolution to Terra's sequence has been fully coded and imaged on both routes, and I'm quite happy with the way that everything worked out. While my testers (and a huge thanks to them) are finding the bugs I didn't spot in alpha, I'm going to add a few more scenes into the game. Continue Cecilia's non-canon arc, finally turn Laurent into Laura for good, and reward Jessica for her actions.

The Jessica scene has turned out rather fun to write. If you kept Donnie/Tomas they'll be used in her scene, but if you sent them away, the scene had to be rewritten to use another member of your harem. And it turned out.. interesting.. to say the least!

Still can't commit to anything beyond an 'Early May' release for 6m2, but thins are moving along nicely!
