Conception Maiden - Reveal + Demo download

Hi everyone,
The first main demo of a game I've been making since last year is finally here and can be downloaded below.

Conception Maiden story:

A boy name Minori is awoken from cold sleep(cryostasis) by a mother and her daughter, only to find that a deadly virus wiped out most of humanity, and that the 3 of them are the last living humans on earth (with the exception of an unknown number of other people in cold-sleep pods).  The world is also overrunned by "cross-breeds", deadly parasitic life-forms.  With just the 3 of them left, humanity faces complete extinction. 

In order to prevent extinction, Minori must(to his dismay) have sex with the mother and daughter, and impregnate them.  Using special technology, pregnancies can be accelerated to full-term, and birthed babies' age can be accelerated to maturity.  Then Minori will be forced to impregnate his female offsprings through sex as well.  Interestingly, all his offspring are female.  Unfortunately for Minori, these girls love sex and want to rebuild the world into his own personal sex-paradise harem.  Through this, Minori can increase the human population and use the girls' help to hopefully reach more cold sleep pods before it's too late, as well as take back land from the cross-breeds.

This game is a blend of tactical rpg and a side-scrolling platform-based fighting game.  The game is played in 3 different main modes:  Exploration mode, where you can walk around freely, Command mode, where you use a cursor to select and command units to move on a top-down map(similar to tactical games such as fire emblem), and Battle mode, where you control the character directly and fight the enemy in a side-scrolling fighter/platformer-like view.

The game's characters were made with 3DCG and was animated in different ways using mikumiku dance, photoshop, and a "figure" animation system I wrote from scratch.  Not just that, I also wrote the game engine from scratch using GM studio.  Note though, that is game is still in early development and the engine has only recently become stable.  However, there is alot of content, so please give the demo a try!

Here are a few screenshots of the new demo:

Demo update

Hi guys,
Sorry for the long absence. 
For about 2 months, I wasn't really able to work on the harem game because of limited free-time, so i started using what was left of my free-time to slowly make a map editor with game maker that can edit maps(rooms) in a similar way to rpg maker(like directly copy multiple tiles and paste them, do autotiles, paint fill effect, easier to navigate between tilesets, etc.).  This editor makes it far faster and easier to create/edit maps on game maker(can edit any game project's maps).  I was hoping to use this on the harem game.  The map editor isn't complete, but it is functional and I have recently used it to create two different maps in the harem game.  I will probably post a video of the map editor on youtube sometime in the future.

 After that I had more free time again and went back to making the harem game.  Though a great deal of this time was used debugging new bugs and difficult to replicate bugs(like animation bugs based on time, which only occurs when joints line up a certain way), as well as adding new features that I realized I needed in the game(the last i added was sound playing that could be triggered by the message box and by joints on any points of an animations).

I have hopefully fixed all the bugs(biggest bugs were joint animation sync bugs and command map bugs that made the characters unable to move/move incorrectly), and I spend over a week recently doing nothing but additional bug checking(which was mostly just trying to fix 3 big bugs), so the game is now stable enough for demo release.  The storyline and eventing of the game is also all in order now.

Since this is the first main demo, I will be posting it publicly at the same time I post it on patreon.  I will be posting the game demo here and elsewhere sometime today or tomorrow.  I hope you guys will look forward to it(I will also reveal the official name of the game then).

That's all for now,
see you soon.
