Night Games – Valentine’s Night Off is now available to all patrons

Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!
The next major update for Night Games is ready for release, and there’s some great stuff here. If you are a Patron,¬†head over to our Patreon page to download it.
Obviously, we have Reyka and Eve’s sprites done, which means that now all permanent opponents in the game have full sprite sets. This means we’ll have some opportunity to add sprites from some of the secondary NPCs in the near future.
While I’ve been looking for a freelance graphic artist to commission, I decided to try my hand at some basic iconography. I’ve added some icons and effects to sprites to indicate status effects. They’re off by default, but you can turn them on in the Options menu to see if you like them.
There’s a simple, but very significant change to the way penetration stances work now. Sex stances now cause some guaranteed pleasure each turn in addition to whatever skills are used. The amount of pleasure dealt is based on the sex pace, which is controlled by the last Fucking skill that was used. Grind is slow paced, Thrust is medium, and Piston is fast paced.
I’ve also replaced all the Ex Skills with something I’m calling Adaptive Skills. Adaptive Skills have Mojo cost, just like Ex Skills, but they use your highest primary Attribute to calculate damage or success. This means that if you have mojo to spend, you have a decent version of the fundamental skills regardless of your build. This will make a lot of builds more viable.
Another big change is the titular Night Off each week. Sunday nights, instead of have a match, you have opportunities for longer events. There are only a couple events currently, but we’ll have more added soon.
That is because we’ve been reaching out to find additional writers. As long-time supports probably know, I’m a very slow writer. I’m earmarking a chunk of our Patreon income each month to commission additional writing and boost our overall productivity. I’ve requested a single scene each from many freelance writers this month to get an idea of their style. If you particularly like any of the guest written scenes this update, let me know. It’ll make it more likely I commission more work from that writer in the future.
Changelog:
  • Added Reyka’s sprite
  • Added Eve’s sprite

  • If Exact Match Only is set, skill art will only show up when in combat with the girl depicted in the image.
  • Added a bunch of icons and filters over sprites to visually show active status effects
  • The effects are going to be too cartoony for a lot of people, so I have them off by default, they can be enabled in the Options

  • Reimplemented and enabled Locate. The new version is not very elegant, but it shouldn’t blow up every time I touch the GUI

Looking to commission a writer for Night Games

Hi everybody.

I don’t remember how publicly I talked about this, but a while back I decided I should spend some of our growing Patreon income on commissioning more writing. I contacted a couple writers to request 3 or 4 500-1000 word scenes per month. Unfortunately, that ended up falling through as both writers became too busy to write for me. This past month, I’ve been too busy dealing with a job change and moving to look for a replacement.

Now that I’ve finished moving into my new place, I do have some time to seek out and vet people. There doesn’t appear to be a good hub for adult writers looking for commissions, so I’ll probably post on reddit and then look through individual tumblr and deviantart accounts.

However, if you’re here because you enjoy Night Games and you have some writing experience, I’d be happy to hear from you. You can email me at thesilverbard@gmail.com with some of your writing samples, and we can discuss rates.

It should also be noted that we’ve cleared our $1000 goal to commission someone to consult on our UI. I think finding a freelance graphic designer who is open to small scale adult game work is going to take me some time. I’m also probably going to need to set aside some money for a few months so I can provide a decent project budget for them.

If that happens to be something you have experience with, by all means you can contact me for that too, but I’m less optimistic about this one.
