the rpgmaker model would be easy to patch, id just release the game unencrypted and people could swap in the uncensored images.
my main issue with the rpgmaker model is, to run smoothly, that i need to fade to black for (currently but it wouldve gotten longer) 15 seconds while i run through all the animation frames to load them into memory.
In other words, the time to run through 200 images smoothly is to give them 15 seconds apiece and hope somewhere along the lines the entire thing didn't decide to shit on your work somewhere in-between, which probably happens 1 in 20 times? But, it's still hours of work for some images.

the game maker model doesnt have that issue, but to have a patch for safety it could be a little tedious.
I'd rather just release the game as is, its not like the story is gonna have any real artistic merit, raidy didnt, without the lewds it wouldnt have sold really.
I mean, okay, let's break this down. To put lewds in as a patch for game maker, you have to pull the old images and then create a new directory for said images while the patch occupies those slots? And that's assuming everything is going to go right (spoiler: it seldom does) on the first try. So, you're now asking yourself, "do I just do it myself and forego the whole patch process, or do I run sims and make sure all that extra work is worth it?" Well, the former makes more sense. So, yeah, like you said, Raidy didn't sell on story.

as for the title, dickdown dungeon definitely wouldnt fly i think. i could be wrong but i dont really wanna do anything that could increase the odds of it being thought of as a troll
I doubt western audiences would see it that way. I mean, you might get a "well, is the dungeon named that?" response, and, if not, then why not? It requires changing in-game text to match the title, assuming it doesn't already. I mean, it's really a neutral title, if we're being honest.

it doesnt get shit on, but im assuming theres an upper limit of what can be stored in memory before it needs to be played again.

the lewd patch method i came up with could be as simple as if file exists sprite_add but i think the way i thought of doing it would be better overall.

basically, sprite_duplicate gets me new indexes for each censored image, the duplicates are used by everything in game via those indexes
the images are also exported, so that the names of each sprite is clear,so replacing them in the local data folder is made simple.

the check for them existing is there so the uncensored images dont get replaced by exporting if you've already installed the patch.



as for the game title.
I could always put dickdown dungeon in as a nickname, if thats not the official name for the dungeon. wouldnt be surprised if some of the villagefolk snuck off there for fun every now and then.

It's ultimately what you think works best patching long-term. If it goes up on Steam before my next payday, I'll give it a try.


Also, "Cunthroat Cavern." I'm already imagining the multitude of lawsuits coming your way from people who misread that one.

Fair enough. I shall wait for it, then.
There really isn't much left to do for the demo but im having trouble getting it done somehow.
maximum is 2 cgs, and enough textures to at least start to build the village outside the dungeon. and a battle portrait for the first boss.

So concerning Steam, they are legitimately allowing R18 hentai games now. The story goes is Valve were slowly heading towards banning even mildly tantilising teases, like lingerie, cleavage etc etc and more and more games slowly got removed, biggest hit were anime styled games and especially VNs.

Well the communities behind these genres noticed and had a massive outcry over it, and eventually it was revealed that it was SJWs who were pushing Valve towards this, but in the end Valve just said "Alright fuck you guys we're removing all restrictions on sexual content!". To accompany this change, they added a relatively hidden option to view adult content.

The Japanese circles caught wind of this, and a lot of devs who post to sites like DMM and DLSite have been posting their games on Steam now in light of it all. Also, people are posting NSFW images of full-on penetration, and are only getting a "NSFW flag" on their pictures.



Now, enough about Steam, will enemy portraits be animated too? Maybe bosses at most since I know animations for each sprite would take forever.
