    Hi, everyone! This past month has had me making little improvements and additions to the game that didn't involve an awful lot of writing. Not that there isn't any new written content, but most of what we're looking at here is a lot more art (including a proper title screen at last!) and something I'm particularly happy about: The beginnings of a Spanish localization for Penlight! It's in its early stages, and you need to go through the game's menus to get to it, but the first two in-game days are now available to play in a second language, and I'd be thrilled if it helps to open up the game to new readers. There'll be more to come, with the hope of making the game fully dual-language in the near future! As for the rest of the new content, there are now four new CGs spread across the game, and if you check out Hiroko's and Nozomi's newest storylines again you'll find they've had some more work done to their script, with Hiroko's now written to a full conclusion and Nozomi's having her ending tweaked among other things. There's more little writing updates here and there (check the update notes), but like I said not an awful lot of new writing here. Just little incremental updates that hopefully make the overall game just a little bit better. As usual, you can find this month's release in PC, Linux, Mac and Android versions, on my Patreon or itch.io pages. For next month I'm cracking on with a storyline I left hanging some time ago while the art upgrades continue. Plus we should see more progress with the Spanish localization. Stay tuned! What's New Fully written the scenes for Hiroko's newest storyline Penlight is now partially playable in Spanish! Language select is available via the preferences menu, and Spanish text is present for the first two in-game days Replaced the placeholder title and main menu screens with new art Added a new CG scene for Nozomi's main (Trance path) ending Added a new CG scene for Hiroko's route Added a new CG to the start of Sayori's route Added a new CG for the ending of the Villainous Devotion route Made numerous edits throughout Nozomi's Trance path storyline, including some changes to the final scenes Added a few new background musics. They play during Nozomi's Trance path Replaced the outline for two of Nozomi's Trance path sub-paths with proper writing Numerous edits to previously-written scenes in Hiroko's new storyline Tweaked the Villainous Devotion route script slightly, and altered the ending a tad Added a tiny bit more outlining for the Villainous Redemption path Played with the menu colours a bit so they work with the new title screen better Android Version: Added an option to the UI allowing players to hide the UI until the screen is touched again The legacy sprite option has now been removed as maintaining them in the game was causing too many issues Word count is now over 200,500! Miscellaneous spelling and grammatical corrections Miscellaneous spelling and grammatical corrections Known Issue Changing the language on a line of script where an animation occurs (like screen shake) will throw up an error

    I'm a mimikko addict, and even I don't replay Nekopara games. There is only so much slave-race girl-banging I can take before the warped part of my brain starts imaging leather collars and chains onto them.

    Muv-Luv Alternative

    Muv-Luv Alternative VNDB Steam Summary "A destiny tossed about, in an insane world--- A flame of life blazing forth, in a dying world--- And now, one more future that is spun--- This is the alternative ending unable to be told before: A very great, a very tiny, a very precious... Tale of love and courage." (The next part has spoilers, so beware!) Three years have passed since the day Takeru, an unsuspecting Japanese high-schooler, suddenly awoke in a world not his own — a war-torn alternate reality in which mankind was on the brink of extinction, locked in a decades-long struggle against the ruthless extra-terrestrial invaders known only as the BETA. In that time, he’s been through an awful lot — enlisting in the military, meeting parallel-universe versions of his old friends, and even falling in love. But unbeknownst to Takeru, he and his squadmates were being trained to participate in a top-secret UN contingency plan known as Alternative IV — a last-ditch effort to take back the Earth via experimental technology. Unfortunately, however, development screeched to a halt when the project’s chief executive, Professor Kouzuki, hit a wall in her research due to technological constraints. With tensions rising, and pressure to shift gears from governments all across the world, the UN delegation opted to scrap the project in favor of its successor: Alternative V. This was humanity’s last resort — a plan that utilized all of their remaining resources to build a migrant fleet of interstellar craft, allowing a tiny fraction of the population to abandon the Earth in the hopes of finding life anew in another star system. Takeru and his comrades-in-arms were among those left behind, condemned to death by their fellow man. But it seems the hand of fate has bigger plans for Takeru, because it’s at this point that he wakes up to find himself back in his childhood bedroom once again. Not in his own world, mind you — but back where he was first spat out into this hellscape three years prior. This was no dream; this was a recurring nightmare. But then it hits him: this is a second chance. If he’s truly been sent back in time, then he’s the only one who knows of the impending doom that awaits this world. Perhaps he can use this knowledge warn to Professor Kouzuki, and together, they can somehow find a way to prevent Alternative V from ever being enacted. And who knows? If he can change history, then maybe — just maybe — he’ll find the answers to all of his questions. Why has he gone back in time? Why isn’t Sumika here? And most importantly, what IS Alternative IV? Muv-Luv Alternative continues the story of Shirogane Takeru after the events of the original Muv-Luv. This is a tale of a love so deep it breaks all barriers; about courage in the face of adversity and overcoming hardships. Takeru encounters and conquers insurmountable odds while his entire world is turned upside down around him. Ending Guideline / Suggested Ending Order Muv-Luv Alternative has 5 endings and 19 Steam achievements to unlock. By following this guide you’ll able to see and unlock all of them. Be mindful that the list below contains spoilers and you’ll also unlock all CGs as you go. This game requires five playthroughs to get all the achievements, but thankfully, there is chapter select, so as long as you do the first playthrough correctly, you won't have to restart the game from the very beginning. The recommended ending order is: Kasumi --> Chizuru --> Kei --> Miki --> Mikoto It is more optimal to do Kasumi's ending first, since, in the next playthroughs you can use a chapter select shortcut (the other "routes" also require fewer choices). It is advised to save before making any choice. Notes were left inside the spoiler boxes in-case you follow the recommended order. The method that is written outside the spoiler box may only work for the XBOX version! Ending Guideline Yashiro Kasumi Sakaki Chizuru After clearing playthrough 1, go to Chapter Select, and click the fourth option under chapter 7. Auto-skip and choose "Class Rep" 2 times. Then just pick whatever choices you like, and finish the game. Auto-skip again is probably a good route to go for this. Ayamine Kei After clearing playthrough 2, go to Chapter Select, and click the fourth option under chapter 7. Auto-skip and choose "Ayamine" 2 times. Then just pick whatever choices you like, and finish the game. Again, auto-skip is best, unless you want to play it again. Tamase Miki After clearing playthrough 3, go to Chapter Select, and click the fourth option under chapter 7. Auto-skip and choose "Tama" 2 times. Then just pick whatever choices you like, and finish the game. Again, auto-skip is best, unless you want to play it again. Yoroi Mikoto After clearing playthrough 4, go to Chapter Select, and click the fourth option under chapter 7. Auto-skip and choose "Mikoto" 2 times. Then just pick whatever choices you like, and finish the game. Again, auto-skip is best, unless you want to play it again. ~Warning Theater~ (XBOX ONLY!) Achievements If you followed this guide you should have unlocked all achievements, but, here's a list anyway: NOTE: Some of them are story-related and you'll automatically unlock them.
