Night Games – Cats, Escorts and Grudges Public Release!

Hi Everybody!

It’s been a week since the current update released for Patrons, so you know what that means. It’s now available for everyone!

Mega Link

This update obviously includes the sprites for Kat and Samantha that were our $400 Patreon goals. You’d never know it by looking at our current Patreon status, but we actually hit that goal quite recently. We’re going to have the sprites for Reyka and Eve in the next major update.

We’ve also got a lot of major mechanical changes designed to let you tailor the game difficulty and pace to your tastes. Old saves are compatible, but you may want to start a new game to take a look at the new modifiers that are available.

If you want to discuss the game, please consider clicking on that Forum link in the nav bar. It’s pretty quiet right now, but I’m hoping more people will join.

The full change log is very long and only a post back, so I’m not going to paste it in a again. Just scroll down a bit.

Night Games – Cats, Escorts, and Grudges is now available to Patreon supporters

Hi Everybody!
The new major update for Night Games is ready for release, and it’s an exciting one! We have the sprites for Kat and Samantha that were promised in our $400 goal. The sprites for Reyka and Eve will be next.
If you’re supporting at the $5 or above tier, you can download the premium build here.
If you’re supporting at a lower tier, you can download the standard build here.
If you aren’t supporting at all, you have two options. First, it’s not too late to become a patron. Just $1 a month will get you the early release. If you’re not interested in that, the standard build will be available to the public in a week.
I want to take a moment to thank Veroen for the suggestions he posted in the forum. The two biggest mechanical additions, the Grudge System and Challenge Mode, were based on his suggestions.
For anyone with a passing familiarity with Shadow of Wardor, the Grudge System is like a light version of the Nemesis system. After you beat an NPC, she’ll get a grudge buff the next time you fight her that night. These grudges are mostly unique to each character based on their fighting style and personality. This will give you something extra to deal with if you keep picking on the same NPC repeatedly.
The Challenge Mode makes use of the handicap system that was already in the game. Instead of being offered handicaps for bonus money, in Challenge Mode, you’ll be automatically given a handicap each night. I’ve also added some more handicap types to make sure there’s a variety. This will be great for players that find the vanilla game a bit too easy, but don’t want to use the Hard AI.
Now I’m glad that the Hard AI is in the game, because I know some players are really fond of it. Thank you Jos for making it. However, I’ve never found it fun to play against. Optimized behavior is just too predictable for my taste. I’m glad that we have an alternative now.
The last addition I want to talk about is something that no one complained about, but bugged me during testing. NPCs that equip strap-on dildos now show them in their sprite. AimlessArt even went the extra mile to give each one a unique design.
