The Snow Angel Release - Version 0.42

 


Hello everyone, it's that time again! A new release with a bunch of sexy new content for you to enjoy :D

In particular, I'm pretty happy with the expansion of orgasm content in the sex scene system. Now, rather than a single description fitting the situation, there are a lot of variations based on your character's kinks, for both the PC and the NPC. Right now they are randomized in an order of precedence, so certain kinks are more likely to show up than others. Fans of the Risky/Pregnancy kinks will certainly be delighted, but the shame-fast, "rape", and "slut" kinks are also well represented. If you have a lot of these kinks in one character, it'll probably take you some time to see all the possibilities!

As you may already know, this has been a pretty rough month for two out of three of us in the main development team. Besty had a family emergency, along with a type of morass or burnout that is probably associated with the hardships of the pandemic. He's using his saved-up vacation time to relax and recuperate, and thankfully, it sounds like he's doing better already. Besty should be returning to work around the time we do the 0.43 release (he had a lot of vacation time saved up).

I've been dealing with worsening depression symptoms that have been tied in with my medication changes over the last year. Depression is something I've dealt with from a very young age (since I was six or seven years old), but I was lucky enough to find a combination of medications that let me experience "normal" for several years. Unfortunately, issues with my heart, combined with the natural tendency of antidepressants to stop working over time have meant that depression has been a bigger part of my life lately. This last month in particular has been pretty challenging.

Fortunately, I've learned some coping skills over the years so things aren't as bad as they could be. Due to the swelling of mental health issues during the pandemic, it took some time to get in as a new patient with a psychiatrist in my new location, but now that I'm being seen regularly again we'll be able to restart the process of finding a new set of medication that works for me. I know it's not an easy process to find something that works, but it's worth it. I'm looking forward to being able to enjoy life (and expanding AW) again!

Please take care of yourself, everyone! Things have been hard for everyone, and there is no shame in reaching out for help if you need it. And as always, thanks so much for your support. Having Accidental Woman and our little community of lewd people has made a huge difference for me.

Out In The Cold

 

I've been going with a 'cold' or 'snow' theme for the last several images. It's winter and some of the images I've found are striking, amusing, or both. Unfortunately, I think this one would probably violate Patreon's terms because the woman is naked, even though there is no actual nudity displayed.

Patreon seems to be continuing its crusade against adult creators, though mostly for things like games and fiction rather than artists, possibly because artists generate a lot more revenue and their content is more ambiguous. Still, despite my hatred of censorship, I have to admit that they're the primary source of funds for Accidental Woman. With employees on the dev team to pay, and a desire to see this project through to the end, I want to avoid causing unnecessary problems.

Our content, while certainly inventive, seems to fall within their guidelines (though the language leaves a lot up to interpretation, so the wrong employee on a bad day could decide it doesn't). Should we run into an issue with Patreon, we'll decide what to do then. I feel that we could remove things easily enough, and our mod support in the game's code would make it a fairly simple matter to add such things back in.

Of course, this is all hypothetical. I haven't heard anything from Patreon or otherwise suggesting that there's a problem.

Anyway... enough of that stuff!

We're still on track for our next release on Saturday. There will be a solid amount of new content for you to enjoy, including expanded prostitution and more orgasm text for sex scenes. I wish there'd be even more, but the usual challenges of the holiday season, along with that 2020 mojo have made it a bad month for us. On the bright side, part of Besty's emergency has turned out better than we expected, and things seem to be getting better recently.

Hopefully, 2021 has been kind to you so far as well. 

As always, thank you so much for your support. Accidental Woman wouldn't be possible without you!

Iceland

 


Happy Winter Solstice everyone!

I hope you're all able to make the best out of the holidays despite the circumstances. While I know that everything isn't going to magically return to normal in 2021, I do hope things will start getting better.

The 2020 craziness continues to affect the AW development team. My parents and my brother's family have all come down with covid, they're in a different state so my immediate family is fine. It's hard not to worry about my parents given their age and health, but the odds are in their favor. Besty is in the middle of his own little shit snowstorm, with a family member being very ill with a non-covid situation. I won't go into any detail in order to respect his privacy, but it isn't looking good. Thankfully, Anenn has been spared any new craziness this month.

What we're working on for version 42 is going to see a little shuffling due to everything going on, but we should still have a fun release for you to enjoy. The big thing will be new prostitution content for street walking and working for The Oldest Profession. There will also be some new orgasm content and some other fun content here and there. There was also an expansion of nightlife content planned, with a new club and more activities to do in clubs, but this will likely be significantly curtailed temporarily due to Besty's issues and the holidays.

We'll keep plugging away at the next release, thanks for your support everyone, it wouldn't be possible without you!

Happy Holidays!

The Snow Bunny Release - v0.41

 


Hello everyone, it's finally time for the release, and I think you guys are going to like what we've added this time.

We added a lot of content to the sex scene system, supporting more kinks and variations for individual actions. It's a huge update, with about 35,000 words of new sex scene action content. Because the generic sex scenes are something players see more frequently, we want to keep adding more to it to keep it interesting. We also expanded the body portraits, adding male body portraits for male NPCs, and adding support for skin color. Female body portraits now have 713,687,040 combinations to match your characters. We've also added some other fun things, like a new roleplay challenge mode that requires you to get pregnant often enough or you'll die, along with three characters to try it out with.

We're going to keep working on making AW better and better, and it's only possible thanks to you. From Anenn, Besty, and I: thank you so much for your support! We hope you enjoy the Snow Bunny release!

Cooking

 


It's getting close to that busy time of year with lots of cooking, decorating, and family visits. Well, this year the family visits may be a bit constrained, but a lot of the overall hectic atmosphere of it all will probably remain. In any case, there's nothing to do with cooking actually planned for version 0.41, so don't worry.

The main thing we're adding this month is a big expansion of the sex scene library content. Adding more variations to actions and including versions of actions for more kinks should make the general sex scenes more fun.

The other thing that we're working on, which is a bit overdue, is the character body portraits. Besty is going to be working on adding male body portraits, and we're going to try and improve and expand the female portraits together as well. I'm really curious to try a couple things to see if we can get a better result than what we already have. 

The rest will be a mix of smaller misc items as usual, adding minor content and some neat things. Without any major changes to code, I'm hoping we'll also be able to get a little caught up on some of the bugs that have been resistant to pesticide. There's a couple reports that crop up that we have a hard time replicating, just because they seem to have some preconditions to occurring that aren't always obvious. We also had someone kind enough to submit some typo reports right before the last release, so we'll be working on those as well. (thanks!)

That's it for now, it's time to get back to work!

The Honey Release v0.40.0

 


Hello everyone, it's time for a new release! There's a lot of new stuff in this release, with new content and some new code items. Normally I'd talk about some of the big things in detail, however, I ended up taking longer than expected to squash bugs the cats left for me in the code. That being the case, I'm going to jump straight into the changelog!

We hope you enjoy this release!
