Change-Log:
v0.2.2
This is the Mia Abduction sequence. At the end of 0.2.0, Mia ends up.. in a spot of trouble. 0.2.2 is relatively linear, but details the story of what happens to her afterwards. Can true love overcome pure evil?

v0.2.0
- This is really the Mia Waifu update. You can trigger her dates by giving her a rose in the library after Movie 3 with her.
- It's recommended you've already completed the Spicy Coffee and Dominatrix Doctor movies, since the dates become... significantly better if you do :)
- A day or to after the 3rd date, you might want to check your email.. someone's sent you some pictures of a pretty girl.

v0.1.3
- New movie, the long awaited conclusion to Spicy Coffee.
- Movies now pay out, depending on how well you do it, and how your skills are. Should fix the issue of running out of cash
- Lots of bug-fixes and spelling issues fixed

v0.1.0
- Added a new movie to Mia (in the library)
- Lots of new puppy-related side-quests
- Spell-checking and cleanup, thanks to the awesome beta testers and proof readers
- Lots of bug-fixing.

v0.09
- Cleaned up Mia's second movie for continuity issues
- 100+ new memories accessible
- Fixed up all the UIs to better support different aspect ratios
- Added support for showing stats (note that Susan's first movie requires Strength>10 for best outcome, and Mia's second movie requires Smooth > 10 for 'best' endings
- Cleaned up the computer interface

v0.08a
- Fixes Susan/Derek movie not triggering for a lot of people. You need to make sure you *read the email from derek* using v0.08a, since a critical flag is set at that time. Note that for the best option here you need to build up your STRENGTH.
- First pass on Mia's second movie, triggering on day 3 evening. This one has a *lot* of variables;
for best ending you need to build your SMOOTHNESS to 10 (coffee and running works), and ensure you've got the wet t-shirt purchased
- Emails now sort correctly
- Company name is now saved correctly
- Fixes a bug where reloading while there's a fullscreen overlay image remains
- More plan sub-sections, and fixes to the plan scrolling UI
- Fixed weight-training in bathroom not recurring


v0.08
- New Movie scene (NSFW); Susan / Derek. Follows the "Derek Spy-Camera arc"
- Improved plans and feedback on plans
- Bug fixes to Pam's opening sequence
- Bug fixes to savegame system, stability, and an improved Debug Menu (ctrl+D to access).
- Still no Mia2 movie (sorry). Taking the time to do it right.


v0.07b
What's new:
- Fixes bug where some actions would start happening more than once after a while (sleeping, shopping, etc)
- Fixes some progression blockers linked to Pam and Derek
- Can no longer avoid sleep by working through the night
- University is open for business; get your prestigious post-graduate degree in poetry, photography or intersectional studies
- Overwrite savegame added

v0.07a
What's new:
- Fixes coaching not replaying
- Locks away Mia2's scenes until they can be safely used
- Fixes a bug where the dialog hangs at the first video (video not playing?)
- All stat boosting systems now have correct mouse-over and works
- Credits text updated with helpful voices. I need to take time to add everyone who's given great feedback
- Settings menu accessible from Main Menu. You can now quit from Settings Menu
- Introduced an experimental 'on appear' animation for dialog lines. It's certainly noticeable, but I worry it's distracting... what do you guys think?
- Shop is now closed until Day 2; you're supposed to be filming movies the first day, not reading books.


v0.07
What's new
- Bug fixes and spelling fixes
- Advances the DEREK quest-line (at the hospital)

v0.06
What's new
- Introduces Pup, a man's best friend, and a new location (the dog pound)
- Fixing up typos and adding guards to prevent triggering events at night, or during movies
- Added new additional recurring events : coaching (makes money, with a chance to trigger an event later), lifting weights, running and suntanning (boosts stats)
- New additional recurring events related to pup

V0.07

Pros:

UI looks clean and easy to navigate. I especially like the animated items/idles (although a little less movement would work better, imho).
Admirable amount of work/detail in the porn ratings screen.
Models look good (even though most are stock HS).
Game premise is interesting and writing/grammar is decent (no broken English is a huge plus!).

Cons/Bugs:
I couldn't tell that the text on the right side were choices.
Settings not accessible/Music can't be turned off until after "intro". I highly recommend fixing this ASAP.
No way of quitting/exiting game if playing in fullscreen mode unless you know how to Alt-Enter.
BUG - If you open the Daily Ratings screen and click on history before opening texts, it jumps the game events and breaks the game so story progression isn't possible.
BUG - The location description is displaying incorrectly (office, bedroom, etc.)

Recommendations:
Add a Quit/Exit button to the Settings/Main menu page.
Enable Settings from the start so people annoyed by the music can shut it off.
Enable highlighting/contrast the text choices to let players know they're different.
Decrease the fade time for object descriptions.
Once you put in a Quit button, I suggest you set the default configuration to 1920x1080 + fullscreen.
The exit button on the computer screen looks like a speaker (audio) icon. I suggest a power button icon.

Summary:
An excellent start with a lot of new/innovative styling and decent writing. I wish the models were better, but they'll do ok. I look forward to future updates!

You should update and add a link to your itch.io page. It would add a certain amount of legitimacy/credence to your project.

Also, I advise you to clearly state in the op that this is a DEMO and will be buggy.

Hmm.. I linked the free build, but I guess I didn't make it totally clear that it's the latest official version. Updated the text to mention that, and that this is early days; thanks for the feedback. The game is about 6 weeks old, spawned by a PM exchange on this site. I don't really think 'demo' is the right work; I'd tend to call it a Vertical Slice. It's certainly pre-alpha, so take that for what it's worth :) I'm having a lot of fun working on it; hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!

The game froze at the "stick your tongue to her slit" what to do? I am using th downloaded version
Hmm.. curious. I'll see if I can reproduce it and fix it for 0.08. It's clearly a bug, might be related to a video not playing correctly. The game auto-saves before every dialog sequence, so you can rewind and play onwards.

Is there any dialogue that is not going to that choice? I have restarted the game and started a new game 3 times and it's still not working. the music still plays but my clicks are not doing anything.

No; both the boob massage and the oral sex scene goes through that nexus. Curious, but saying "it works here" isn't a valid answer to a bug report. I'll dig into it, and hopefully get it fixed tonight. One thing you can try; hold down CTRL (auto-skip), and see if that helps?

Got stucked after the first girl says she need to catch breath at her second visit.
So this is the second time Mia comes to visit? That's the end of the content for Mia at 0.07. I do need to tie that off cleanly, probably borrowing an idea from Big Brother and have the plan state switch to "to be continued". There are other people to meet out in the world, though.

Ok,then. I like the game so far.

Like the game so far, but ran into a bug. During the second photo shoot after "warming up" Mia, she just stands there in the bedroom. I can't click on her to progress. I actually left the apartment and spoke with one of the MC's friends at the Hospital, then went back and she was still there. Slept until the next day, still standing there.
