I'm not fond of the "College" theme since it's done so often, and I suppose because I didn't have the "dorm" experience myself, so it's hard to relate to. I can understand the attraction to said story line though, since many want the young but legal girls, and the wide range of character attitudes that can be employed into the plot. Jocks, nerds, recluses, sheltered, sluts, hot professors, and all manner of in between. A wide range of social settings like parties, dorm rooms, classes, public bathrooms, parks, hallways, gymnasiums and more give it room to not be static.

Since Dr Pinkcake impressed me so much with the writing in Acting Lessons, I will certainly be giving it a try. Skeptical, but still looking forward to it. :p

Edit: You forgot to put the prettiest girl on the OP. :p 181718_preview3.jpg
Maya's dimples are cute, her breast size is normal, and she doesn't have the unrealistic super high cheekbones that some of the other models do. :heartcoveredeyes:

I originally didn't want to repeat stuff posted in the Acting Lessons thread, but let's put it all here so everyone's up to speed:


Some info regarding the new game:
When the script for Episode 8 has been written and while I wait for renders to complete, I will have development time to spend on other things than Acting Lessons.

As I plan to continue to create adult games, I will spend some time planning changes for the different Patreon tiers and for the Discord server. Before any major changes are made to the tiers or to the Discord, I will notify you all well in advance. Changes to the Patron tiers will not happen before Episode 8 release.

The majority of time, however, will be spent on writing the script for the first release of my upcoming game. The title reveal will come sometime before Episode 8 is released.

I want to release a BIG first episode of the next game, not just a short demo.

As I did with AL, I have started planning the main story from start to finish, but this time I am allowing myself a little more leeway, as I noticed how a story can evolve throughout development.

The details that I am willing to share with you for the moment being are the following:

- The MC (main character) will be a straight, Caucasian male, late teen/early 20s.

- The theme of the game is...*drumroll*... College. The source of inspiration comes from every single college movie I've watched for ages, slightly fused with a game that I would love to see a sequel of (Bully by Rockstar). I could talk about this for a long time, but I will settle with saying that this is the game of my dreams and I'm glad I got some experience in game development and writing before attempting to create it.

- The camera perspective will mainly be POV (point of view) but I will show the MCs head more this time around as it allows for way better camera angles in animations and overall.

- I aim for immersion, again. The biggest focus, as in any college movie, will be humor, but the main story will stray slightly from that at times. It won't turn into a thriller this time, if you are worried about that, but I still wouldn't recommend the game to anyone going through a tough period of their life. Some topics might hit close to home.

- The game will have a permeating story. It is NOT a sandbox game. That said, there will be choices and branches.

- Some events will be forced for the sake of the story.

Let's look forward to the ending of one adventure and to the beginning of another.

Cheers and have a nice weekend!

To not make this post super short, let's end it with some new information about the upcoming game (With the working acronym: BADIK). The regarding players' preferences were very interesting; some results were expected but I was also surprised.

I intend to listen to your preferences with the next game. So I have decided the following:

- The story will have plenty of choices, big and small.

- There will be a balance between story and sexual content.

- I'm going to show more of the MCs face than originally intended. (This result was a surprise to me.) I will still have a lot of POV scenes, but not shy away from interesting angles this time around. So let me present the MC you will embody in the new game. (No not Josy, the other model)

- It seems like no one enjoys mini-games unless they are rewarding, but also that 50% would skip those mini-games if given the option. As I want mini-games for a very specific purpose, that I can't reveal until you play the game, I will compromise. You will get the option to skip mini-games, getting the same results as if you completed the mini-game but you will miss out on unlocking special renders in a gallery found in the main menu. For players replaying the game, this skip option will likely be welcomed, but know that I aim to make the mini-games fun and not a grind. I've designed three minigames that will be included in the game, thus far.

- There is no doubt that a majority of players like animations. That's very good to hear, cause I will make a lot of them. I enjoy making them and I feel like I'm improving. I will skip the speed alteration concept that Acting Lessons has and instead do more angle variations per scene. It will take more time to render these animations, but thanks to all of you the second PC makes this possible. Really! I wouldn't do this if I didn't have that second PC. So every animation you watch from now on, pat yourself on the back with the other hand.

- A small majority of players play these types of games with music enabled. I'm so happy to hear this, because there goes a lot of effort into finding music with correct licenses that suit the scene. I'm going to add a soundtrack to the new game as well and I have already decided on the main theme of the game. .

Thank you all for participating in the survey!

I'll end this post with a gif variant of Josy. I intend to have more dynamic renders like this one in the game, meaning that sex scenes won't be the only animated scenes.

I saw some concerns regarding Isabella's chest size.
That's totally fine, different strokes for different folks.

However, upon reflection and from feedback, I realized that the outfit wasn't the best choice for showing her off.

So, here she is in another outfit. It's the same chest size as in the other picture.

This is how she will appear in the game.

Even if it still is not for you, I wanted to give her a second chance for those of you who were on the fence.

Cheers and thanks for the valuable feedback!

I didn't want to repeat stuff posted in the AL thread, but let's put it all here:


After finishing Acting Lessons I will develop a new game. Today I'm revealing the final romaceable character of the cast, Josy. I'll include some extra renders of the rest of the cast. I have attached high resolution versions of the renders to this post.

Thanks! It's best to have that near the OP, so that people who don't already know about it can understand the basics instead of having to be told throughout the thread. :p

Some context would be nice...

You're right. I meant this thread to be a Hey, let's put BADIK stuff here, not in the AL thread, not thinking that, duh, people unfamiliar with Acting Lessons would be curious about it, too.

I edited the OP to be an intro to the game and moved the Sage preview to the post below. Sorry for the confusion everyone!

DrPinkCake has not revealed what BADIK stands for...
I read this word in the other thread a few days ago for the first time in my life, and since I'm a curious type, I went to look for what it meant believing it was an acronym. This is the only thing I found (on Urban Dictionary) :
badik.jpg

Now the only tag that could make sense to me with the game theme was #big timer
bigtimer.jpg
and reading this description perhaps, perhaps, BADIK could refer to the "character of the main character" (it's still English, yes?) of the game...

My mind is too twisted? :coldsweat:

Nice detective work there Holmes! I still think it's an acronym though, since college doesn't seem to be an obvious setting for a grease monkey gangsta', lol.
