Version 0.2.19

From Degrees of Lewdity Wiki

Version 0.2.19 was released on 30 November, 2020. This update includes a new encounter type, adds weekly exams to school, adds a new area for treasure-hunters, and sprinkles events throughout the world.

Developer's Note

"I've been thinking about including exams for a while. Swotting is still the most reliable way to do well, but there are others. Kylar is always eager to help. Whitney is less useful. Cheating is possible, though the teachers will be watching. I hope it gives more context to the school skills, and makes raising those stats more interesting.

The moor will make heavy use of lurkers, so I wanted to develop their encounter mechanics beforehand. The mechanics also cover other creatures too small to be normal beasts/monsters, but too big to make up swarms. I sprinkled some other events around the world that make use of them, including in the new area. There's more planned for them in the future. Lacking a way to represent creatures of that size in combat felt restrictive.

The squirmy cave was planned for several updates ago, but was pushed back for time. It seemed a good location to tackle with the new encounter mechanics ready. The cave should serve as an alternative to lake diving. You'll need to go diving to find it. It's a criminal haunt, but there are more dangerous things down there.

I'm ready to begin work on the moor, which will include the last major additions before the jump to 0.3. However, I've been hoping to add snow and wintry events this December. I'd like one more update before Christmas, and the moor might be a bit chunky to finish in time. There are also some Robin scenes in the pipeline I'd like to include soon if possible. Not sure what order to expect.

I hope you had a nice November!"
