The Burst Release v0.27 Change Log


Hello everyone, and welcome to the Burst Release!

This release got its name from a rather dramatic addition to the fertility system: the ability to have your stomach literally burst during a hyper pregnancy. Don't worry though, this event should be rather rare, especially if you take advantage of the new 'elasticity' body transformatives such as UteriGrow™.

This has been a rather rough month, with my daughter and wife having some health issues, along with both Besty and I managing to catch a cold. I'm still pretty happy with what we've got accomplished though, which includes a whole bunch of new content. The additions to the Institute SPERM job alone clocks in at 20,000 words along with a bunch of scene images. I've also written 5 new Progenerate Technologies events, mostly related to fertility drugs, though there's also an interesting pre-birth stretching event. Speaking of fertility drugs, a bunch have been added along with the Gestique fertility clinic and spa. Gestation accelerators, elasticity drugs, fertility enhancement, fertility boosters, and even a zygote splitting medication are available. You can also avail yourself of the sauna at Gestique to help heal your unborn children.

We also got a lot of bug fixing done, some other content additions, and we've added the Resort area at Lake Clitea. Besty has also added an early version of the cooking system. You can currently cook a cheeseburger or blini as a trial, but next month you'll be able to make more complex dishes and add your own special "extra ingredients" to the food. Eventually, you'll be able to feed your date that fancy Rotini a la Rohypnol you lovingly crafted, or give your blini a nice sugar-semen glaze. The bug fixing was definitely a big part of our focus, however, as well as implementing some of your suggestions. One example is changing the class times for the various schools. Now they should be a lot more accessible if you wish to raise your skills.

Thanks for your support; we really hope you guys enjoy this release!

    • Fundal height and the size of your fetus/s can be found in the character details page.
  • Added gestation acceleration functionality to the fertility system.
    • Players can now take three accelerant drugs, each of which will shorten their pregnancy. (Amount shortened depends on the drug and whether the player has the rapid gestation mutation.)
    • The drugs can be found at the Gestique Fertility Clinic & Spa or will be administered automatically in the Progenerate Technologies job.

  • Added zygote splitting functionality to the fertility system.
    • Splitting zygotes is how identical twins happen. Previously all multiple pregnancies were fraternal.

  • Added womb elasticity and womb burst functionality to the fertility system.
    • It is now possible for the player's belly to burst during a hyper pregnancy, resulting in a bad end.

      • Belly burst thresholds will likely need to be adjusted based on player feedback.
      • Players working for Progenerate Technologies will never have their wombs burst thanks to their advanced technology.

  • The Progenerate Technologies Fecundate Division job now has 5 new events.

  2. Nice progress!
    I saw a few strange issues playing it last night (v27) -
    - Energy stuck on a very low level, and I am not sure how to restore it - eating or/and sleeping doesn't work.
    - Mental health deteriorates in an amazing passe - in 2-3 days one can go from the full health to the suicide bad-end. I tried to decorate the apartment, and having sex, yet nothing seems helping. Wait, the only one that helped me was Dr. Lector, who restored my help back to 100%, but this is way too expensive.

    p.s. I smell a bug in the balance formulas related to the mental health and energy.

  3. Thanks guys for reporting those issues. I'm thinking that perhaps the energy issue may be related to the rapid decrease in mental health, but we're investigating that now. The general practice doctor is literally a missing quotation mark. (Doh!)

    1. We will blame Besty for that. If he is from Russia, he should feel guilty all the time!

    2. FYI - it seems like energy doesn't work in the cheat menu as well...
