The Kiss Release - Version 0.31 Change Log


Hello everyone, and welcome to the Kiss Release!

It's finally time to start exploring the main story after the prologue and meet your alter-ego in Lily's basement lab. Because it's been a while, and there are plenty of new players, I wanted to take a moment to point out that the male and female start stories are quite different. They have totally different prologues, and they have quite different relationships with Lily, the story's central NPC.

The male and female stories are actually part of the same overall story. When playing the male start story, you'll end up meeting the female-start NPC, and vice-versa. Each start gives you a different perspective and information about what's going on in the story, with Lily, and with the town itself. If you haven't tried both starts, I think you'll be surprised by what you discover and I recommend giving each side a try!

The way that Lily acts toward the opposite start NPC is one of the possibilities available if you play that start. However, it's important to note that the version portrayed is only one of several possibilities if you're playing that side. It all depends on the choices you make. It's also worth noting that the female start main quest is generally more difficult, though not excessively so.

I view the two starts as a collection of mirrored and opposite attributes. Probably the easiest way to describe it is by using the metaphor of a dark and placid lake. The male start character floats above the surface of the lake, looking down at her reflection and the female start character beneath the surface of the water. The female start character stares up at a distorted version of the male start character. She is in a much darker and colder place compared to the character floating above the lake. 
This month we did more bug fixing, balance improvement, and improvement of minor and overlooked things. The cheat modes got some love and care, NPCs were given clothes to wear, and I fixed the body portrait's pubic hair. I apologize for that rhyme. Besty has added undressing to the sex system, so you no longer start mystically naked. I focused on the main quest/storyline, which revolves around the effort to rebuild the rejuvinator. You can now visit Lily's house, ring her doorbell, and help fix the machine in her basement lab. It took some work to set up Lily's Lab as the central location for quest progression, but I think you'll agree that it's worth it for the types of character mingling it allows.

Thanks as always for your support, I really hope you enjoy this release!
