[FEEDBACK] Trials of the Succubi v2.4th

Post by indyc »

To celebrate the 4th of July enjoy version 2.4th!

https://milovana.com/webteases/showtease.php?id=56177

You can vote for 3 girls in the poll! (Lana not mentioned because there is already more planned coming)
Spoiler: show
Fapnip is continuing to expand the Milovana space limitations so I can bring you new content.
Fapnip also invented time travel and conveniently included it in this tease.
Greatly expanded: Lily and Alina
Napping revamped with new scenes and random chances of events.
More Nikki, Anissa, and Kylie scenes.
New succubus Christie with 6 endings.
Mini scenes added in a few places.
Alpha/beta tweaks.
As always, be a critical as you wish and I will work hard to explain, fix, or include it. I'm always around to discuss anything you wish and let me know if you want to be part of the Sucubeta Testing Team.

Have fun exploring and surviving the ever expanding sexy gauntlet!

Pretty much?! Haha kidding.
Thank you and Heyho right back at you!

For how to encounter Alina:
Spoiler: show
The main way to get most of the content is to have rejected the succubi almost to the point of the game over condition. You can do this by having the sum of succubi affections low or losing as little soul as possible. The affection thing probably is too hard to trigger on an easy playthrough because it starts them all at 2 affection. I was guessing on the values needed for this to happen so if it is too rare or too common that is definitely feedback I need to hear.

The other way is to have a game over where no other succubi is leading in affection but this is only game over events and not the long scenes that the other condition will give you.

If you want the quick game over scene with her:
Spoiler: show
Find anissa at the start (back of the house) and constantly refuse to do anything with her (I mean constantly trying to get away and not indulging her at all). Then when you get inside, tell her you won't fix the sink. Her affection will drop below 0 and you'll go to Alina (This is on normal difficulty)

I skipped further into the day. Further into it I'm stuck at "look at saved images" & "check phone messages". I've clicked both several times and I can't do anything to continue. I'm in limbo. Not sure if anyone else has this glitch or not.

Just going to restart it, it's a great tease.

Hi! Just started enjoying the new version. The new scenes, especially the nap ones, are absolutely epic! Since the last patch i couldn't really find Sirena, and now I can't seem to find Christie. Have to say I only tried 4th of july for now (and enjoyed the new lily scenes very much :-D ). If i could get a couple of tips I'd be very grateful! :lol:

Anyway absolutely beautiful job as always. You can see that work has been put down to make the various relationship deeper

I sent gratchbd a message yesterday and we are speaking to see if I can find and fix it. There is a small chance that I was able to fix it. Thanks for the report and the compliment!

For Sirena, she is only found on the male fiance route. I agree with everyone that believes this is an odd way to introduce additional hetero content much less the fact that this is not communicated by the game well.

Christie is only found in Christmas and Easter after surviving pretty far.

Thank you for giving me your appreciation!

Question for everyone:
How many people have found the new Alina scenes?
Spoiler: show
Schoolgirl etc
I don't know if I made them too hard to discover or not. I also just realized that she is twice as hard to find on easy mode which was not my intention.

On Alina, I ran into at least some of the new content, but
Spoiler: show
I also tend to start very conservatively early on so I don't know how "normal" my play is.

If I had a critique, it would be that some content is too hard to find. This is a very long tease, so hiding scenes in extremely specific circumstances means it's unlikely anyone's going to see them - with this much material you can't speedrun through looking for new stuff, and if you're just going through again casually you're likely to choose some of the same sorts of options. Some of the conditions are also either narrow - characters who only show up in specific seasons - or rely on mechanics that aren't broadcast. For instance early on you're told "If you allow Affection to fall too low you will lose the game," so it doesn't surprise me no one stumbled onto the character who requires that your affection for all of the succubi is very low. It also never occurred to me that choosing a male lover wouldn't result in male pornography. It seems pretty obvious that that's what that option would be for.

If you don't want to make new stuff easier to find - and that would be fine, since it allows different routes to feel very different - maybe you could make completing the game ease up on some of the requirements, or perhaps put hints for finding difficult-to-locate scenes into the ending blurb. Conversely, maybe you could hook some of the new content onto mechanics that are visible - a succubus that only comes after you if you're highly Beta, for instance, or only if your Soul remains very high, or if you've lost/maintained/never had your virginity. Maybe if you reject Lana in her angel persona too frequently. Something people would choose voluntarily.

Still love the tease, though. It's incredibly in-depth and very impressive.

On game end, have you tried to "look at wrist"? Also, pay attention to the "hack device" option once you do that. You'll want to save the result of that for later.

First off thank you so much for bringing up this concern and going into such detail. While I completely sympathize and understand the frustration, I also feel like my ability to fix it is quite limited. With the absurd number of branching baths, some are bound to be harder to find but it is up to me to make large chunks of content not as hidden. I have long wanted to bring in a form of hint system (even better if it gave hints based off of what you haven't seen yet) but do not know how to best go about that. That being said, with the absurd number of branching paths it is guaranteed that there will be some very rare paths that few will see.

That is a good point you made about the affection warning pointing people away from Alina. She has 2 triggers to show up and affection is one of them. However, while the number of people finding her are less than I was wanting, it is also based off of a bug that I didn't notice as well as me guessing on values to see how they would feel. I have already adjusted her numbers for the next version but was having trouble updating the current version without breaking it.

The point on the male fiancé has been echoed by many and I completely understand that frustration. While it does contain optional gay content, the game does not in any way communicate the additional hetero content it brings. I still don't have a great solution for this yet it is on my list of things that I must improve.

Completing runs easing up requirements is a great idea but I honestly have no clue how something like that could be implemented. I think some of it goes back to having what could be a robust hint system that reveals itself the more you play. For the things like Alina that are currently too rare I am already adjusting those things.

Glad you like it so much, when the last version 3.0 comes it will be even more in-depth and impressive and hopefully I can iron out the kinks by then. Let me know what you think of the "look at your watch" mechanic, does this allow you to speedrun and experiment as you were wanting?

Hello, I'm glad you were able to enjoy it a bunch of times. Megan is found towards the very end on Christmas and Easter playthroughs. She will have greatly expanded content in TOTS 3.0.

It just keeps getting better! And now it has a time machine?!?!!

Is there a way to use the time travel thing to jump to spots in my previous game when starting a new game?
