6m1 update!



A brief 6m1 status update for everyone:

As per an earlier Patreon poll, development will focus on getting Terra back in the harem before branching out to deal with Samantha/Cecilia/Ariel and the other slave being added to the harem during chapter 6.  I had hoped to be able to complete Terra’s arc in 6m1, but that might have been optimistic.  Looking through what needs to be done, that arc is about 400-500 pages and some 25 scenes.  Which is more than I can get done in a month.  I will push forward as deep into that path as I can, but it’s probably more realistic to expect getting through the Tenta section and then finishing Terra’s recapture during 6m2 and then starting with the other arcs.

On other news, I’m running another Patreon poll to see which characters get an extra scene for the 6m1 release.  I’ve decided to make this one a threesome.  There’s a poll running until the end of the 10th to determine which slaves will be part of the final selection.  On the 11th I’m going to pair them up as I see fit and put the final selection up to another poll.  If you want to participate, it only requires a $2+ pledge.  And of course, a $5+ pledge lets you play 6m0 immediately!

Harem c6m0 released to Patrons, public version upgraded to c5m4!

I just released Harem c6m0 to my $5+ Patrons, which starts the chapter 6 events.  Having several slaves taken from you during the trial, you find an ally who wants to help you get them back.  They arrange for you to travel to the province of Denai, but your opponents haven't been waiting idly for you to arrive...

If you wish to play the newest content immediately, any pledge of $5 or more will get you instant access to the new content and any other rewards for the tier.

Content additions
-The tram is open to bring you into Denai to recover Terra and Samantha.  It will not be easy.  6m0 starts that process, 6m1+ will be part of this content.
-Extended interactions with Jessica, Kathleen and Donnie/Tomas both making the coming battles clearer and defining Jessica's role in your harem.  The player will have a no-share option for all Jessica + Donnie/Tomas interactions.
-The first of the Denai events, with your explosive entry into this new zone!
-The start of the Fiona's capture path if you didn't capture her in Eowen.
-The conclusion to Sarah, Naitay, Heather and Phoebe's chapter 5 arcs.
-The ability to 'meet' Melony and Betsy personally.  And carnally.
-As my patrons voted for her, Beta will get a scene set
-16 new scenes, 2 bonus
-246 new images
-306 new pages of text

Bug Fixes/Adjustments
-Broken the Minor Slave category in Replay Scenes into individual characters
-Fixed an issue where you had to stand in the right spot for Donna's 5m4 quest.
-Add in a warning message when text is hidden
-Reduced damage for Bandit archers

-300+ text corrections throughout the game
-Broken the Minor Slave category in Replay Scenes into individual characters

Retcon
-Samantha is from Denai, not Corsix.

I am also upgrading the public version to c5m4.  You triumphed against the charges that the Namuhists leveled against you in 5m3, but the tram hasn't arrived to bring you to Denai to track down Terra and Samantha.  Your gaze turns to Corsix itself, to see what happened to your slaves during before the trial and if there's any women in Corsix worth adding to your harem.

c5m4
-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

Wow! Despite February being a short month, a lot of new content coming for 6m0. Should be ready for release in the next day or two!  After that's out, I'll update the public version to 5m4.  

If you want to play c5m4 immediately and get c6m0 as soon as it comes out, all you have to do is pledge $5 or more to support the development of Harem and you'll get the download links.  And there's additional rewards at higher levels of support!

Harem c6m0 enters testing!



There's still some writing to do, but everything that's at all complicated in terms of code is fully written, coded and imaged. I started testing late last night, and already getting a lot of great bug reports and getting them fixed.

I normally try to start testing around the 25th, but I had forgotten that February is a shorter month. It will push back the release of c6m0 a few days. I should be before the 10th, but probably closer than usual to it.  And that will also push the public release of 5m4 back until 6m0 is ready.  

But I can give you a few more teasers of 5m4 at least!
