Version 0.2.21 was released on 16th January, 2021. This update lets skulduggerous characters break into the docks at night in search of loot, adds more wintry scenes to the lake, and lets Avery take you to a lavish hotel. It also adds new scenes to the asylum, among other additions and improvements.

Developer's Note

"It's been a while since I added a new skulduggery location. Searching the whole harbour is dangerous, but you can learn which containers carry valuables ahead of time by working there during the day. In the future each rank of skulduggery will let you break into somewhere new. I hope to make it more of a focus after 0.3, but want to add the prison before taking it much further.

Avery can now take you to three different places, enough to lead into bringing you home in the future. I'd like to add the homemaking skill first though, so it's still a while off.

I changed how treasure is found in the forest. It was previously tied to allure, which meant losing all your clothes and getting sticky could make finding antiques and wolfshrooms difficult. The chance  is now unaffected by allure, and is higher if you search rather than just travel. I also added more things to find, though you'll need to find buyers yourself on Connudatus Street.

The game should now track your first kiss, and first hand held. Let me know if you find a scene we forgot to update.

There were a lot of contributions, so it's another broad update. Thanks everyone!

Next update will add the moor. There's a new bad end scenario planned out there, but I might leave that for the following update. I'll see how long the other scenes take."

New Additions

This update primarily focuses on a lot of quality-of-life (QOL) additions to the game, as well as several other features:

  • The docks becomes a location of interest for Skulduggery at night, allowing the player to break in and search for loot. It requires a C rank to get in - giving an alternative of proceeding through the rank chain of skulduggery, rather than just "searching for marks" at that rank.
    • Working there during the day has a chance of revealing useful information.
  • Avery will now potentially take the player to a luxurious hotel, where they can spend the night.
  • Additionally, Avery can also pick the player up from school, instead of just driving them to school occasionally.
  • If the player has a high Crime value, Avery will try to scare the player.
  • Iceskating on the frozen lake during the winter season. On snowy days, Mason can be found swimming here, instead of disappearing entirely from the lake.
  • Fruit now grows in the forest, and can be picked and sold at the Connudatus market stall via Tending.
    • Additionally, mushrooms and flowers found here can now be picked and sold as other fauna produce can.
  • Giant bees nest within the deep forest, alongside their valuable honeycomb - requires high Tending for the player attempt to steal it and take it for themselves.
  • Robin can now be encountered for the first time on day 1, rather than from day 2 onwards at the Orphanage. The following locations Robin can be encountered at are as follows:
    • At the shopping centre late in the day,
    • At their lemonade stand at the Beach, or hot chocolate stand at the Park during the winter.
    • In the school canteen during lunch.
  • The Attitudes menu will display as a gold link marked by two exclamation marks (!!) whenever a new option is available to the player. These options are unlocked over time.
  • Old clothing makes a grand return in the form of "classic clothing".
    • Old versions of clothing artwork such as the original sundress are now available to wear at the Forest Shop as separate items to the existing items.
  • The Forest Shop has been updated to match clothing shop updates, adding sections for under tops/outfits, and icons for both classic clothing and clothing categories.
  • New clothing added, these include: A cloth choker, suspenders, arm sleeves, arm warmers, lace arm warmers and ankle socks.
  • New feats, these include: "In Red Light", "Oh Bother", "Employee Benefits", and "First Kiss".

Numerous miscellaneous changes, more information in the patch notes:

  • The police's opinion of the player displayed in the Social overlay will now note whether the police have enough evidence for an arrest.
  • A filter to the clothing shops, allowing only clothes with certain traits or for a specific gender to be shown.
  • Pubic hair is now made available for male PCs.
  • The ability to buy bottom (ass) pills from the Pharmacy, influencing bottom growth and/or reduction.
  • The PC's first kiss, and their handholding virginity, are now tracked, and are viewable in the Statistics overlay.
  • The "Game Settings" tab now has subsections for Human NPC and Beast Settings, making it neater.
  • The player will now receive a notification when they are able to choose a second love interest, or are no longer able to.
  • The "Flaunt" option now require the full demon transformation to select, but will become visible after the player gets any transformation.
  • The player can now strip any article of clothing or accessory at locations such as the wolf cave, lake, and pool - in which they were previously unable to before.
  • Drop-down menus for strip options make it easier to strip down when needed.
  • The impact of alcohol on fatigue no longer worses as the player becomes more drunk.
  • Finding valuables in the forest will no longer depend on allure, and the option to "search" will now increase chances of finding items.
  • The Attitudes menu can now be accessed from the wolf cave, updating it's facilities somewhat as a "safehouse".

Trivia

  • This is the first update to introduce a visitable hotel location.
  • This is the first update to introduce more "virginities" - more specifically, first kisses and first hand held.
  • This is the first update to introduce more pills to the Pharmacy, since the initial update introducing the pills.
  • This is the first update to introduce old sprites back into the game, in the form of "classic clothing".
    • These old pieces of spritework have not been seen since the 0.2.0.0 clothing overhaul update - the primary focus of which was to update clothing sprites to make them more visually appealing.
    • However, existing spritework of the updated clothing will stay the same, as classic clothing are separate items entirely - but will function the same way as they previously did nonetheless. This means that player cannot choose what variant of sundress they want - classic, or "modern" - and will have to choose between equipping the standard sundress found in-game, or wear the "classic sundress" found in the forest shop instead.
  • Prior to this update, pubic hair was only found on female PCs and the "hirsute" toggle. It can now also be found on male PCs.
  • Prior to this update, Mason could not be found swimming in the lake during the winter.
  • Prior to this update, the attitudes menu was not available from the Wolf Cave.
