It continues… sprites and animations are taking too long (which really is normal) but it’s going, I don’t know what else, every time I have to come here to post without any significant update it’s really discouraging, posting out of obligation every month is becoming a big distraction and mental drainage, so I think I will stop and report back every milestone or something or just disappear until the end, I don’t know.  You probably won’t see anything this year anyway and at this point I have no idea what’s going on after, I hate it as much as you do.

Everything continues fine though, or what I consider fine at least, just slow, I really don’t complain, I think I’m doing well given the circumstances, I just really hate coming here just to say the same thing over and over , but that’s how it is… shikata ga nai.

  1. I dont think I speak for only myself that id rather see an update even if it’s just something you think is tiny and insignificant over not hearing anything at all. Mostly just because when you don’t hear anything you start to wonder what might have happened to the person, whether they’re doing well and such.

    If it’s too much of a problem for you I’m sure people would understand though. Just let us know you’re alive now and then.

    • I agree.

    • It’s really not a problem, it’s just stressful knowing that you expect more and I don’t have more, I know I shouldn’t care but I’m becoming more and more paranoid the more it goes.

      • progress update are nice, but I more enjoy seeing new pics. either way, I’m glad you’re making this game. really looking forward to it.

      • Listen man don’t stress over it because it’s not like we are paying you for these updates, we aren’t paying you a monthly patron fee so there is no need to be stressed over not having a big monthly update. We aren’t entitled to these updates I for one am just very happy that you are at least showing something, it’s cool to see stuff even though it’s not major stuff.

        Sounds like your aching for a pep talk.😉

        That said… I’m the anon from back in April that told you about things for artists/craftsmen get easier to organize and plan with experience. How’s that working out so far? It sounds like you know it’s going to take a long time and it sounds like everything is within expectations for the work you’re doing. I’d say “don’t stress out about it”, but y’know, it seems like you stress out a lot anyway, so I guess that can’t be helped.

        If you really think you’ll feel better about not doing monthly updates, I mean hey, go ahead. You don’t owe us anything, and you gotta take care of your mental health. On the other hand: Do you really have anyone to talk to about the art you do? If you don’t, and even if it’s not here, you should find some people. It helps you keep perspective on your art and being able to talk about it gives your mind some ease with these sorts of things… A lot of stress can build up about what you’re working on, and you don’t even realize the extent of it when you’re in your own bubble. And y’know, Internet Strangers tend to be convenient because they’re the least emotionally connected to you (They aren’t judgmental family, they aren’t there twitching their faces in odd reactions, they don’t employ you).

        In a way I guess the internet as a whole is sort of a masturbatory confessional booth.

        As for your fans? They just like to know that you’re okay man, and not dead in a ditch. I mean, they want the game too, but anyone who’s watched enough of these in development knows to dial back their expectations knowing that Life Happens for a lot of these people who make these pieces of art for little or no money, and that’s pretty understandable.

        …Assuming you play other H/Porn/Erotic? Games… why not talk about some other ones, and share some of your theories and opinions on those. You’d then I guess…. be sharing stuff that’s low stress and expectations while you continue your work? Perhaps a happy medium.

        I don’t know, just some thoughts. Either way, I hope you find what you need (whatever that is), and Good Luck.

      • random anon Says:

        nah, it’s okay. I don’t really expect anything major like NEW HOT FEATURE or SUPER AMAZING 20 HOUR TENTACLE GLOPPING.
        Even if it’s the same kind of post, it’s better than not posting anything. Keep up the good work!

      • Yeah, you learn as you go, I know now what mistakes not to do and maybe how to do things a bit faster but the real benefits of that will show up in a next project.

        And nope, I really don’t talk to anybody about it, and I don’t really feel like I want to, I’m not good at talking in general.
        Regarding other games, well, I haven’t really had the chance to play anything, I mean, I had, but every time I even think about playing I can’t help but think I should be working on my own game, at the end I just would feel bad for playing instead of working and end up not playing anything. In reality though, If I have time to play I should have time to work, there should be no excuse.

        Time is really the biggest problem, I’m not stuck or anything, I just need to keep working and hopefully have enough patience from both sides, that’s all.

      • Personally I don’t expect blog updates to gimme intel on progress, just to get news for the dev. So if you wanna get more personal stuff or chit chat with us etc without giving us any new info on the game I think it’s fine. It’s just nice knowing you’re still thinking about the blog, because even if you didn’t do any progress, it still shows us you think about your game and about us😉 don’t be so stressed man

    • Yeah, gonna jump on this train as well. I’d rather see “Hey, still alive and working on stuff” than nothing at all for months at a time. Toss in a few WIP pics, and maybe some specific stuff (coding, models, writing, etc) that you’ve been doing, and that’s even better.

      Sure, I’d rather see more details, specific things that are being done, etc. but like most of the people here, more than happy to just know you’re still around tinkering with things when you have the time. Having played Xenotake, I know the end result will be worth it (especially considering how much I love the demo for GHV).

      Keep it up, man. We’re all here rooting for you!

    Dont stress out tak you time and rest 9f you need it

  3. will there be catgrils

  4. Anonymous Says:

    Just wanna say that anything you post is good enough. Im sure everyone is fine just knowing you are still working hard. Maybe post something every two-three months or just whenever you feel like it. Dont stress so much though.

  5. Thank you for the update!

  6. Just show one animation each post. Would be enough for me.

    • This is exactly what causes his mentality. As well as asking for a good portion of the game’s raison d’être up front with no actual entitlement, you’re trivialising the act of making it in the first place.

      It’ll be done when it’s done, having progress updates is nice and Vosmug isn’t even obligated to provide us with them, never mind “one animation each post”.

      I think I speak for the majority when I say Vosmug, we appreciate the fact that the game’s being made and that you take the time to let us know about it. Your struggles with your own perception of the speed of progress is progress its self. Perhaps writing these posts is a subconscious way of letting (most of) us let you know you’re not beholden to us. I too am shit at working under pressure, but what I hope you come to realise is there really is none, unless the sales factor is a pressing motivation. You make the game you want to make and make it at the pace you want to make it at, and it’ll turn out better for it.

  7. bro your work is amazing keep showing that little piece of heaven and show us a little bit of ur work

  8. Hm…how about making an update on the trial game? That would make plenty of people happy.

  9. Yet another fan Says:

    I mean, you’re making the game as a hobby right? Why would we have the right to demand updates or whatever. As for me I’m just happy knowing that there’s another promising game in the making, however long it may take. So yeah, take it easy, if you don’t enjoy making it then what’s the point right? Just ignore any impatient bastards in the comments and go at your own pace.

  10. Anonymous Says:

    Honestly man, if you just pop up now and then to let us know you are still alive and you are working on it I’m sure your fans understand. I wouldn’t stress over it because it will be finished when you get it finished. Nobody is rushing you and all of us are excited to see your final product. Keep up the good work!

  11. Anonymous Says:

    We all appreciate your work and stuff, don’t stress over it, even if the updates are small I always enjoy go back and see how far you’ve come. Great job as always.

    That being said I completely understand. With our world today people just want more and more. So I can get why you’ll go back to infrequent yet significant update.

    Good luck for the future! And again great job. We appreciate you making the game!

    Take a winter vacation and come back after the new year! I think that would help you out. =)

    • NO non nonono ononno, I can’t extend things anymore, I rather work slow than risk losing motivation over a period of inactivity, also, coming back to something you are always rusty and have to relearn the habit of working constantly, thanks for the sentiment but I really rather not.

  13. I love your work. I’ve been lurking around this place ever since I played Xenotake all that time ago. Its a big reason why I keep visiting every now and then to see how things are faring. Now I don’t know of many Anons if they feel the same way I do (I hope they do), but I vastly value your mental health. I’m all down for not hearing a peep from you until word comes around of a shiny download button or the dreaded permanent hiatus message if that makes you feel better. I like reading your posts though, its nice. Seeing you talk about your progress, how you feel about it, sometimes other things as well. I’m not the best with words.

    TL;DR Do what makes you feel better, we love your posts either way🙂

    Vosmug, so is the sprite the only part left to finish, or is there still dialogue. I mean what are the parts still left to finish and how much percentage wise is finished?

  15. anemonyous Says:

    You don’t have to be ashamed of not showing enough each update. A few meaningless teaser images and some words are plenty enough. You’re not running a kickstarter so you have no obligations. Keeping your fans informed is simply a nice thing to do.

  16. Anonymous Says:

    Yo, calm down. Unless it”s causing you money trouble, everything is all right. You don’t need to stress about those things.

  17. come in to say hi every once in a while🙂 we would love to see tangible progress, but if telling us about it is weighing on you just saying hi every once and a while is fine.

  18. Anonymous Says:

    No sweat Vosmug. The fans that matter will still be here waiting. We’ll see you when we see you. You’re not obligated to anything except yourself. Don’t give in to anyone that tries to coerce you into turning back on your decisions.

  19. You could literally post a picture of a potato for an update, and that would make me happy. I enjoy your artwork and played the hell out of your last game for quite awhile. I’d love to just hear how you are doing with everyday life. Doesn’t even have to be about the game. It comes when it comes. Don’t break your back over pixels, you know? All updates are, are little pokes at the crowd to say “Hey, this is still happening, keep waiting,” and so on; at least essentially.

  20. Hmm… Yes… Stress too much, you do. Relax while completing the project, you must. Nice, milestones are, but the people want more. A quarter milestone, perhaps, hmm? How about every time, a handful of animations or a scene, you make, hmm? Good way to break up the game into reportable parts, that is.

    But up to you, that is. To report as you wish, feel free. But report for your fans if you feel the need, about the struggles of each scene or animation, just tell us. All they really want, that is. A clock on this, the non-idiots will understand that there is not.

    Recommend to me a good hentai, Vosmug :3

  22. I guess I’m being a paranoid asshat again, don’t mind me, thanks.

    • Sir. I would NOT disgrace you by wearing you upon my buttock. How rude. However, I do feel that if you feel so obligated, simply take a random screenshot of your work and tell us what it is. Just give us a taste of what’s going on.

      Unless you wanna keep it a secret, then that’s all you, dawg.

  23. Glad to hear you’re still out there and the project is still alive. And if there is little progress or even if you feel you have to take a month off from this project, that’s fine too. Don’t sweat it!

  24. God damn Im so glad this thing is going on. I adore your style and enjoy every damn new animation or even a picture you show. This might be mainly my peenus weenus talking but man, I think it goes for both of us when I say that we love your work, keep it up !

  25. This game is basically vaporware at this point
    3 years vosmug, 3 years…

    • Can you please not repeat this , it does nothing but put the blog in the flame.

    • This is a hobby for him, not his primary source of income. He is also under no obligation to release the game in whatever time span you want. When it releases then we can all have a good fap, until then control yourself. You only look like a child complaining like that.

  26. hmm..

  27. I think you are a bit overworked here and on the workaholic side with this game project. I would recommend taking a break and thinking about whether it is really what you want to do in your spare time. If you suffer as much as I get from your posts, then I don’t think it’s a good idea to continue on this path if you value your mental health. I would rather have you quit and recover than to continue for the gamers sake just to have you get more hurt in this process Vosmug.

    All in all I think your games are among the best in the entire Adult indie games world, but you shouldn’t destroy yourself just to produce these for us players.

    I hope you get this message.

    • I wouldn’t say I “suffer”, that’s a bit too much, I’m more worried than anything, all my spare time should go into the game though, I don’t think a break at this point is justified.

  28. InternetGuy Says:

    Vosmug, do you think nipple inflation and/or penetration is too extreme for hentai? I’m thinking along the lines of Mouryou no Nie
    Anyone else?

    • nipple inflation sounds terrifying, I guess you mean breast inflation? Nipple penetration is less crazy I guess but I don’t really know if there are set rules as to what classifies as hentai and what doesn’t, I don’t particularly like those but I wouldn’t say they are too extreme not to be called hentai, even if someone says they are too extreme for them, it depends on your tolerance level I guess.

      • InternetGuy Says:

        I am going to break the rules of the internet by saying “Thank you for the correction,” that is what I meant indeed. Ironically, thanks to the Japanese there is that typo as an animation in one of the Queens Blade animated flash games.
        IMO I think insertion/inflation is sitting between extreme hentai and guro hentai.

        Also while I’m here.
        I enjoy your work.
        thanks for Xenotake
        GHV is looking good.
        ignore the update trolls.
        Wish I had 10% of your tallent.

  29. I’m praying on altar of pure lust for the release of this game. A lot of sacrifice was done. I’m hope this will work.

  30. Just take your time, dont overwhelming yourself.
    But i expect some Yuri and lesbian or Futa scene, good work!

  31. ganbatte

  32. sorry I can not use English
    I am looking forward to your game from Japan
    Good luck!!:)

  33. “Nope, there’s backgrounds, music, sound, level design, dialogue (just to add it, it’s all written already), difficulty balancing, etc. the process it’s still the same as I said here:”

    Now I have done Project Management as a course. One tactic we learned is the agile scrum tactic. Scrum is where you take one deliverable that is needed in a project and work solely on that for 2-4 weeks in bursts. At the end of that time period is something tangible to show for the work and you can tick that deliverable as completed.

    What if you were to try something similar in your approach? Try 1 or 2 months and only work on one aspect, be it music, sound or backgrounds and only focus on that. Then try to get that part completed within the time frame.
