6m0 coming along, but the poll is incredibly close!

We're making great progress on 6m0 so far.  All of the Denai content is written (and mostly coded), Heather and Naitay's Corsix quest is submitted and I'm up to about 100 images.  If you've played v1, there's some similarities in the tram, but significant differences throughout.  Everything is looking good for an early March release.

Every month I do a poll for my Patrons, asking who they want to get a scene in the next release.  You met both Yvone and Beta during the Corsix quests and captured both of them during 5m4 (currently Patron only).  Before you leave for Denai, you'll have a chance to give one of them head for the road!  Right now, only one vote separates them.  If you want to cast your own vote, it only requires a $2+ pledge on my Patreon!

6m0 polls, status update, and 5m4 teasers!

A quick status update for you all:

I'm running a few polls on Patreon to help determine the path of Harem for the next few months.  Besides the usual extra scene poll, I'm considering making a few of the fetishes in the game more extreme, and would love feedback on it.  Also, in chapter 6 I can either focus my work on getting Terra back or evenly divide it between Terra, Samantha, and a mystery slave!  These polls can be found at https://www.patreon.com/posts/7958968 and requires a $2+ pledge to support harem!



And for 6m0, progress is excellent.  I've already completely rewritten the tram sequence, about 150 pages of content so far, and gotten the base code working for the sequence.  Probably spend the next few days on the Denai content itself.  Once the player gets to their new base, I'm going to swing around. I'll rewrite Hiro and t51b's content for Corsix, add a scene set for Phoebe and do the extra scene.  If there's still time leftover, I'll push back into Denai.

 And of course, teasers!  These are from the 5m4 content, which my Patrons are currently playing, but won't be released for free until March.

Harem c5m3.5 released and plans for 6m0



c5m3.5
-Fixed a bug that could cause Sarah’s Corsix quest to freeze.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3KuKjSbH2FhcE83OTIzUTdrQUE

Unless something big pops up, c5m4 will be the last release in chapter 5.  There’s a few things left to do in Corsix, but not enough to focus an entire release on it.  Hiro will be writing Naitay and Heather’s content, t51b will be writing Fiona’s follow-up and a chance to capture her if you missed her in Eowen.  She’s likely to become more plot-important in the tail end of chapter 6 and into 7.

That leaves me with comparatively little to do in Corsix.  I have a scene set in mind for Phoebe and there’s a scene to write based on who my patron want to fuck before leaving, but that’s maybe 30-40 pages of my usual 200-250 page/month production.  So, I’ve started on chapter 6, the tram ride specifically.  It takes you a few days to get through the Corsixan desert and it’s going to be an exciting ride for sure!  From there, the quest to recover Terra, Samantha, Cecilia and [spoiler] is most of chapter 6 main plot. 

My goal for c6m0 is to complete the tram, some of the early confrontations with Melony/Betsy and possible get the player into their base in Denai.  About 50% of the way done with writing the tram so far.

Harem c5m4 released to Patreons, Public Version updated to c5m3

Progress continues!  During the December poll, my patrons overwhelming voted for a release where the player stayed in Corsix after the trial for a time.  This gives you the chance to interact and fuck all of your harem (minus T/S/C) as well as explore Corsix yourself.  Several of the slave's quests lead into more quests and two new minor slaves are available to capture in the process!

Harem c5m4 is currently reserved to Patreons pledging $5 or more.  If you want to play this new content and support the ongoing development of Harem, please visit my Patreon page at:

patreon.com/user?u=2583450


Harem c5m4 patch notes:
-Unable  to leave Corsix and pursue your missing slaves, the player will have  time to explore the city himself and meet a few of the locals.
-You'll  get access to most of your harem again, giving you a chance to find out  what they did while you were incarcerated and maybe meet a few of the  people they 'met'.
-Multipart quests for Donna, Fenja, Joan, Cindy and Kathleen.
-An extended post-coital conversation with Angelica about what lays ahead. Well both post-coital and pre-coital.
-2  new minor slaves are capturable, Yvone and Beta. Although there might  be a more profitable use for Beta than having her laze about your base.
-One future slave introduced.
-8 scenes added to base game, 3 more Non-canon/bonus scenes
-303 pages of text added
-286 images added
Retcons:
-Noemi didn't leave town without saying goodbye. You'll find her in your garrison.
Bug Fixes/Adjustments
-Reduced  the number of events in Corsix to smooth performance. Some people will  still have performance issues in Corsix, this is just my first stab at  fixing, or at least improving, it.
-Smoothed out some transitions in Noemi's 'Doing Time' sequence
-Various text corrections
And a teaser for the new content!
With Harem c5m4 out to my patrons, c5m3 becomes the public version.  Download it at:

An update on the update!

Starting to put everything together, combining the images, text and mechaincs into the game itself. Should be in testing before the end of the month, hopefully release within a few days of Feb 5th.

Complete short of assembly: Donna, Angelica, Cindy, Joan/Beta, Fenja/Yvone, Noemi and Fiona's scene. I've bumped Kathleen's priority up as she's another active quest, and I want you all out doing things after the trial arc.

Bubble, but unlikely : Phoebe and Sarah. They're both passive interactions with just talking/scene.

Next month: Naitay, Heather and Fiona's post-quest content/interactions if you didn't capture Fiona in Eowen. Hiro should be back and writing during Feb, and t51b has taken over Fiona, so that will leave me with a realitively short to-do list mysef. My current plan is to finish up my odds and ends in Corsix and then start rewriting the tram.

If it works out that way; Feb will be 5m4 and March will be the start of chapter 6 as you all take the tram into Denai to track down your AWOL women and go hunting for a few more!
 
And as always, some teasers from the 5m3 content my patrons are currently enjoying!
