Here’s another piece falling into place!

Slave Auctions before today were only used from the goblins to cash out on the Princesses they manage to get their hands on. Now it’s a whole new story!

If you have a pass Slaver Pass in your hands, you’ll be able to join the daily auctions the goblins hold in their palace!

The starting “goods” are the races that do not have a reign of their own, namely kobolds, dogs, driders and even lamias.
Without a powerful Princesses protecting them they’re perfect targets for the goblins’ slave hunters!

Of course as your playthrough unfolds all the defeated races will be added to the list of the available ones.

Consider that an auction normally would last 120 seconds, I’ve cut the timer down to 30 seconds in order to shorten the lenght of the video as much as possible.

The starting price for this slime was pretty low, slime aren’t considered that valuable, and that’s the reason why it didn’t get many offers.

As the desirability of the slave increases, so do the number of partecipants and of offers it will recieve!

Desirability is influenced by:

  • race’s rarity (from kobolds… to lamias)
  • frequency (a race that was often sold in the previous week loses value)
  • slave’s level (1 to 10)
  • slave’s profession

Now, about “professions”, the most valuable one of course being Princess of the Reign, I’ve come up with a number of them.
These 10 professions reflect how the Parent Stats lo Love, lu Lustpo Power, we Wealth) of the slaves have been distributed. We have:

  • Warrior ( lo 10% lu 10% po 70% we 10% )
  • Bounty Hunter ( lo 10% lu 10% po 40% we 40% )
  • Merchant ( lo 10% lu 10% po 10% we 70% )
  • Courtesan ( lo 10% lu 40% po 10% we 40% )
  • Harlot ( lo 10% lu 70% po 10% we 10% )
  • Maiden ( lo 70% lu 10% po 10% we 10% )
  • Noble ( lo 40% lu 10% po 10% we 40% )
  • Bocca di Rosa ( lo 40% lu 40% po 10% we 10% )
  • Wild One ( lo 25% lu 25% po 25% we 25% )
  • Gifted One (all unallocated)

There will be surely space for more.

Now, to show how intense they can get, I’ve cheated in order to get a shiny one on the following day’s auction…

And the offers went through the roof.

shonedog2

There’s something you cannot buy with money” makes no sense to a goblin.

Ok, let’s get this out of the way, since there’s much I have to show and so so little time to do it!

Today we’ll cover:

  • Moss Princess and how it’s so easy now to make any character playable
  • Upgraded UI for reigns’ military management
  • A shitload of new animations for NPCs and completely new ones incoming

Moss Princess

This cutie right here!

CustProg2

A new, fully functional, Princess joins the cast! She’s well hidden, so you’ll have to find her first!

She’s kind of a loner, loves dark and cramped spaces, but ends up realizing that she’d better rely on the Knight if she wants to find the perfect place for her to feel at home.

hkk

Just don’t leave her in the “horrible” Tavern! Too crowded.

Hikikomossi

(eheh, puns…)

That’s the name of her ability! She doesn’t like to fight at all and if you force her out while there’s enemies around she’ll just…

lumpy

!!!

Only by holding down the appointed skill button (Left-Ctrl is the default one) she’s able to move around and fight while in her “humanoid” form, but just for a limited time.
Normally, in dangerous places, she’ll be that lumpy thing you see above!

Reduced damages, slower movements, but she’s also permanently in stealth mode while in her Lump Form!
You will be able to easily avoid enemies (and guards at the castles’ gates) if she’s in your party!

More playables!

This isn’t a 1-time-only event, I’ve taken care to prepare the whole system that will let us add playable characters to the game at our leisure!

The ones that will likely follow this scheme in the near future could be some of the most loved Princesses that didn’t make it as “main” Princesses!
Next one will be Crystal, and we’ll likely end up polling more between the many lovely girls we have!

Crys

Military upgrades UI

Cleaner visuals and accessibility were taken into account as we changed everything there was to change in order to make Princess & Conquest a new experience for everybody!

The cleaner menus, like this one for the military upgrades, show just that.

The stats you can upgrade by paying up large sums of Swirl.png Swirlies to the rabbits are shown both between the choices and in the UI window by the top right corner.
No risk of getting them mixed up, this way!

New Animations

I’ve (as I have personally worked on them) just added, editing and recoloring old animations that would otherwise be left unused:

  • 3 new animations for slime NPCs (deepthroat + vaginal with short/long hair)

pursli.gif

  • 1 new animation for goblin NPCs (paizuri )
  • 2 new animations for kobold NPCs (nipple-fuck + anal)

kobby5.gif

  • 1 new animation for golem NPCs (thighjob)
  • 1 new animation for desert NPCs (footjob)

For a total of ~900 new frames. Truly a work of love.

Akai instead is working on completely new animations for:

  • Cat Princess (reworking the old ones and adding the 3rd one for her!)
  • Human/Harvest NPCs
  • Rabbit Princess

You can judge by yourself: it’s a bunch of stuff!

Right now, as far as animations go, we’ve got all the bases covered, except for Human NPCs and Harvest Princess, that still lack their first animation as of today.

As soon as there’s news I’ll let everybody know! Until next time!

Here’s a couple new mechanics, already completely developed, that I’ve added in the last week.

Life Force

Simply put: the balance between the living and the dead.

If it rises, during your travels you will more likely meet one of the many living races that populate the Kingdom.

If there’s too many wars, or famine spreading (pestilence soon?), the Kingdom’s Life Force will drop and you will find way more NPCs of undead races!

It will naturally float to reflect the Kingdom’s status but, as you’ll see in this post, there will be other tricks to influence it, for better or worst.

Soul Wishes

All the wishes for the Putridarium are ready!

  • EggW Egg Wish: 1 week duration. Reusable.
  • ChickenW Chicken Wish: 1 time only. Exhausts the Soul. Consider it the parting gift a Princess has in store for the Kingdom.

If a Princess accidentally dies (and you didn’t trap her soul like Bill Murray would have done) you will be able to use the Soul Whistle to get wishes!

SoulWhistle

Here’s all of them.

feds.png
*poof* The bunnies are now well fed!

I will now proceed to add an additional page to the Status Screen, to show hidden stats like the Kingdom Lewdness, the Life Force and more. It won’t be available from the beginning of the game, but it will prove itself useful if you want to tune the Kingdom as you wish!

Coincidence or not, it’s all about dead stuff! Let’s cover some of the changes made during these Holidays!

Skeleton Princess rework

Skeleton gal got most of her questline rewrote, together with the addition of a new dowry!

The Bone Rattles

Even more importantly, her first route is now being added!
Will the Knight convince the spooky lady to marry him?

Only the dead will see.

Ghost Princess rework

This one goes way deeper:

  • She’s now completely mute.
  • Her reign is now surrounded by a barrier during nighttime, making it invincible and inaccessible.

    GhoGif3Cropped
  • You can destroy such thing~
  • Her route will also unlock after you successfully break the barrier!

Spodomantic

Together with a complete overhaul of her pre-recruitment questline several additions have been made. New hidden areas to visit, new quests and a completely new item that will be shown today for the first time!

Before talking about it, though, it’s better if I introduce: 

The Putridarium

Putrid
Death is not the end.

Under the Chapel you will now find a bunch of coffins, most of the empty at the beginning of the game, except for one.

If one of the Princesses dies during a playthrough her corpse will be sent in one of those coffins and guarded by the Church of Conquest. It will also possible to read about the cause of the Princess’ death by checking her coffin!

And now: how to use them!? Because there’s great power in Princess’ Souls, isn’t that obvious?

SoulWhistle

If the soul of a dead Princess is still somewhere around the Kingdom, it will definitely answer the whistle’s call!
Keep in mind that if you “accidentally” kill a Princess and take her Soul for yourself, that one won’t be able to reach the Putridarium!

Once they answer the call, you will be able to ask them one out of two wishes, for each little soul! There’s 2 kinds of wishes:

  • Egg wish: its effect lasts 1 week. Doesn’t consume the Soul.
  • Chicken wish: immediate effect. Consumes the Soul.

Some examples:

  • Harvest Princess / EGG: 1 week of sunny weather / CHICKEN: +100 Population to all the Reigns
  • Goblin Princess / EGG: 1 week with upped Fertility for all the Princesses / CHICKEN: +3 Wealth to all the Reigns
  • Ghost Princess / EGG: 1 week of Safe Nights (no Reign can fall under a siege during night-time) / CHICKEN: Resurrect 1 Princess and recruit her
  • Moth Princess / EGG: 1 week-long night / CHICKEN: +5 Diplomacy between all the Reigns

And so on… funny stuff to make every playthrough even more different if someone accidentaly kicks the bucket!

Of course when I said that there’s a coffin already available at the beginning of the game I was talking about Ghost’s, but that doesn’t mean that the whistle will be found on her~

 

I hope you’re as excited as I am! Happy New Year, we’ll deal with the lawsuit soon and get back building the most fun eroge ever~

 

On that note, while we wait for Wyvern‘s dedicated animations, she already has 2 made with her unique pallette!

Faun‘s new adult scene will also get added in the first possible occasion, Akai’s giving the finishing touches to his new animation!

Packing everything up for the upcoming release, that I want to be ready for the moment the lawsuit is over, but that’s no fun for the most part, so I’ve already started working on more on the side.

These additions won’t push the date further ahead, I’ll just put them on hold if I don’t manage to finish them up in time, so enjoy the preview and don’t forget to send us your feedback~

Moss Princess

  • Personality: Hikikomori
  • Location: ???
  • Ability: Agoraphobia

Didn’t see her coming, huh? Well, that’s part of her charm!

I’ve come out with a (much) faster way to make secondary Princesses playable and she’s our test subject! Consider her as a special looking Progeny, because that’s how she’ll be treated by the game engine.

She will have her own dialogue lines being played while she’s at the Campsite or in the Tavern and a very special ability, but that’s it for now! No additional work is required to have her ready to be recruited in your team!

Reworks

I’ve almost finished rewriting the dialogues and events regarding Skeleton Princess, the english was terrible and I needed to prepare the way for her new dowry, the  Bone Rattles!

The rattles already work perfectly, I just need the “Samba!” visual and sound effect to call myself 100% satisfied.
As you can see by the HUD in the top-left corner the “Samba!” ability replaces the Player’s (so no shield block for the Knight, or dodge for Kobold), but that’s the only setback to a deliciously OP dowry~

I’ll start reworking in the same fashion Ghost Princess next week, but her reign has already got an important new upgrade!

During nighttime, as long as you haven’t dealt with its cause yet, her Mansion will be surrounded by a barrier that makes it inaccessible!

More about it:

  • You won’t be able to enter her place, not even during sieges
  • Enemy reigns won’t be able to conquer her reign by sieging it
  • During daytime, or after you destroy the barrier, the Mansions won’t have that bonus anymore
  • All the other places in her reign will remain accessible, regardless of the barrier (you can see in the .gif above how the Inn is not surrounded by the barrier)

Besides what presented today, I’d rather not add anything more to v0.16, the first playable version of Princess & Conquest, so I’ll keep some of the new content we are preparing locked until future releases, when I’ll have time to test it out thoroughly.

Christmas will be a busy time, but there will be surely more updates on our status by then.

🡅🡅🡅🡅🡅

Between the myriad of things we’re taking care of right now, we didn’t forget about the FUN stuff!

Here’s 3 new items that will surely vary the gameplay even more! Thanks to Tsu as always for the awesome icons!

  • Gas_Mask G4sM-ausk

This top of the line gas mask, model G4sM-ausk, is the only way for the Knight’s team to survive the poisonous areas of the Kingdom Below!

If you have Slime, Golem, Skeleton or Ghost Princess leading your party (or a Progeny of that race) you obtain the same effect, though!

Poison does damage over time, it will be close to impossible to survive there without someone that resists it (or being stacked with potions!)

  •  Gorgon Shield

Here’s a rare piece equipments with a special effect, pretty useful and fun I’d say, that can be obtained only after the chain of events that lead to the opening of the Sunken Ruins!

In addition to its nice defensive stats (mostly Magic Defense) if struck often enough it will auto-cast Fear on your enemies!

  •  Bone Rattles

Shake shake! The wearer gains the skill: Samba!

Samba!” will replace the user’s skill! The enemies will burst into dance for a short time and won’t be able to fight back while doing so.
They will also be used to distract guards and will have their own sound effect!

Welcome back!

A lot to report, both game-wise and about what’s happening around this project!

New Quest Journal

Here’s the look of the updated Quest Journal, now with banners (37 different ones are ready, over the 60 we need) that fit the main location and characters you’ll meet during it!

Every time a new piece of the UI gets adjusted to the game’s new look I end up asking myself why didn’t I do it sooner. It was the same this time too.

New faction and castle: the Queen in the Sky

There’s Princesses, and then there’s Queens.

With unmatched power and iron… claw… the Queen and her dragon knights reign over the whole Kingdom! The strangest bunch accompanies them and those power hungry characters won’t hesitateto make use of the Knight for their own personal gain!

You won’t be able to walk in just like that without being seen as an intruder, first you’ll have to prove your worth to the Queen’s men (there’s 3 new quests for that purpose~)!

The castle already has a lot of rooms and a bunch of characters are going to be made to inhabit it!

New Meeting Spots

There’s “quantity“, there’s “quality“, and then there’s “QUANTITY

More than 100 new unique dialogues for these 2 zones: the Civil Ship and the Queen’s Inner Court!
As usual you may be able to meet (and fuck) every kind of character in there, with the usual unusual twists!

You may be able to find on the Civil Ship (normally dressed/swimsuit/naked) every race that isn’t at war with the region of departure or arrival of the ship!

No race is restricted when it comes to the Queen’s Inner Court, but watch your back! Noone know what those characters had to do in order to be allowed in there!

New Scenes (last week only)

  • Wyvern Princess main route is now 60% complete
  • Added Cat x Insect fluff scene

New Items (listing the ones with special effects only)

  • Gorgon Shield (part of the Medusa Armaments set): chanche to cause Fear upon blockin melee hits.
  • Prize-winning Carrot: +2 Affinity with Beast Princesses (Cat,Dog,Mouse,Rabbit and Goblin if Bugbear)

New places and lore

The Monastery hosts the higher ups of the Church! In P&C they act as the armed “claw” of the Queen, controlling the vast Kingdom on her behalf. They are involved in Wyvern’s route, so we’ll definitely see more of them soon, including new staple NPCs!

 

 

In the Pantheon the last heroes that valiantly fought against the Tyrant are being held… captive? Are they even alive?

Will the Knight manage to wake them up from their deathless slumber?

 

 

Status Update

Things are moving, and we’re absolutely confident the solution is near! This week might be a good one to finally be able to share some good news!

More world expansion to show!

Couldn’t bring myself to work on anything else than COLD AF locations and maps, but I also had other reasons to do so!
The icy region to the North, while already existing, has been expanded a lot with Wyvern‘s arrival, and it needed to be reachable and explorable in more than the usual ways.

We already saw (here) how the icy region can now also be reached by boat, that’s why I needed a way to link the two islands without the use of any form of Flight!

Flight requires Wyvern Princess or quite a lot of farming for the Cucco Wings, that’s why in most cases an alternative route will be available (but won’t always be there).

More maps means more places for events and NPCs, and I took care to include spots for some interesting stuff.

The monsters in here won’t be THAT strong, but the place itself will be dangerous to get through.

There’s an underwater pool you have to traverse. There’s sea between the two islands, afterall!

I’ve done the math: there’s 53 new maps compared to the latest pre-rebranding version, I’m sure you’ll have a lot of fun exploring all these new places we’ve worked so hard to bring you!

Soon enough I’ll show new items and new Progeny mechanics, meant to populate the game world in ways you’ve never seen anywhere else.

No cake is complete without candles to blow on top of it!

That’s why, while I’ve just finished adding the Bunny Garderie to the game, as the new method for breeding HUNDREDS of different warriors, ghouls, ghosts and dragons you can use in your team, I didn’t stop!

What happens behind the curtain?
WHERE DO EGGS AND PROGENY COME FROM?!

The answer, only for your eyes, in this video!!

Voyeurism is not a knightly thing to do, at all!
But YOU decide which kind of knight you want to be in Princess & Conquest. See if I care!

Now the pairing…

Spica/Desert/F  Boio/Harvest/M

You can see that, while the Desert and Harvest Progeny aren’t strictly the same race, they’ll eventually breed with eachother, to give the player a new character that will belong to the mother‘s race!

Cute daughter, mommier than her mom.

Next steps will be:

  • Progeny release into the wild (500 slots are a lot, but they DO finish)!
  • Abilities and breeding for them!
