I just cobbled this visual novel project together over the course of a few days while learning Renpy. I have wanted to make a visual novel for a long, long while quite honestly, and after playing a few from friends… I decided to bite the bullet and start learning how to make one myself. I am still learning Renpy, but the game so far is completely free of any bugs, and should hopefully at least give you the gist of what I am going for.
To give you the full scope of what I am aiming for this game to be, here is a list of features that I want to implement in the game as I keep working at it:
- Actual Art Assets and not just ref sheet cutouts of my OC’s
- Comprehensive weight gain system with calories, stomach capacity, weight gain powders and spells, etc.
- Branching story with multiple endings
- SFW and (optionally) NSFW intimate/sex scenes with both male and female characters
- Novel-length story
- A full monetary system with bills, a paycheck, and upgrades
- Knowledge system based off your chosen degree.
So, as you can see… I’m a bit ambitious here. However, this demo was written in 3 days while fighting off a cold on an engine I’ve never seen or used before. So… I have faith that I will be able to at least get some of that stuff implemented with time! I want to get it all in there too, and get it in there well; there will be no half-assing on this project. If something doesn’t work or isn’t coming out how I want it too, it won’t be added to the game… Period. So don’t expect anything half-baked.
This initial demo will be free, and will remain free for good. I will be shifting this whole thing over to Patreon eventually… Probably not for a while yet though, and there will always be a free build. I am well aware that not everyone can afford to pay for a fetish game after all, so I want to make sure that everyone can at least experience this project as it grows and moves forward.
7-29-20 - A bit later than I wanted it, but here is version 0.02. It’s not a whole ton of new content, but the game has a much better stopping point for the demo, as well as some unique music and art assets finally! There isn’t much yet, as the artist and musician are still getting caught up and working at their own pace (I don’t want to rush anyone with this), but there are some assets in there now so that you can get a taste of what the art of the game is going to look like going forward. The Patreon for the game will be launching on August 1st, where future updates of the game will be published. The demo will /always/ be free, and will get updates as more art assets, music, and new lines of dialogue are added into the intro of the game. I haven’t decided on releasing version other than this demo, and just polishing it up, but we will see. Anyways, I hope you enjoy the new content. Make sure to start fresh too, as some scenes have been reworked, and there is a new gender system in the game so you no longer are stuck playing as any one gender.
8-1-20 - The Patreon is live! https://www.patreon.com/NewSaggingTon is where you can go to support the project monetarily, and to see more once we have stuff to show. A few concept sketches for Carmine, as well as the sketches for Dhumal and Sasuke will be going up there soon, along with talk about how coding is going, and something from Bruce on music as well! The demo will still stay here, and still get updated, but the Patreon is the place to go if you want to see the story of New SaggingTon continue! To that end, there is also a Discord that I am launching at the same time! https://discord.gg/PdvXUNN is where you can go to discuss the game with myself, Bruce, and eventually JeffieB to give ideas, feedback, and just see more behind the scenes work. There will be AMA’s there as well, so if you want the most from New SaggingTon, give it a look.
Anyways! Here is a link, and let me know what you think! I also added in a Mac version as well, as that was something that was heavily requested!
-I am aware of the differing art styles and lack of clothing on the characters, the art is all from ref sheets of characters that I own. I have found an artist, but it will take time for them to get through all the characters and art assets of the game.
