Hi, I really like your artwork and games ( I always keep Cockwork Industries installed on my steam library), and I hope you guys will bring more masterpieces to steam. I just have one question can I unlock all sex scenes in Countess Crimson with just one playthrough?
Astaroth [admin] - 07/05/2022 12:39
Not possible. Apart from each girl having her own scenes tied to your personality trait score, there are also extra scenes for each ending. You wouldn’t necessarily need to play the entire game from the start each time, but would have to go back to an early enough save at least.

Jesus. Not only is there futa, but NTR as well? And this is supposed to be the “Vanilla game.” Disappointment is written all over this.
Dark Slaver - 07/05/2022 14:12
Obviously not the game for you Jacob, move on and find something more to your taste maybe?

Do you know the release times?
Astaroth [admin] - 06/05/2022 21:38
Evening most likely, probably around 22:00 CET, but it depends on how long file uploading takes, etc.
The Poet - 07/05/2022 13:06
I have a 24 Hour shift tomorrow, so hopefully you guys upload it sooner today 🙂

Can’t wait to play!

When does the discount on memberships start and how long will it last?
Astaroth [admin] - 06/05/2022 13:36
It’ll be 20% off on every initial purchase (30-day or 90-day depending on what you choose). Keep in mind that after the initial period our recurring memberships are highly discounted anyway.
For example, the 30-day recurring membership is currently $7.99 for the first month and $2.99 afterwards (regional pricing may vary if your currency is not USD). During the Countess in Crimson launch discount it’ll be $6.49 for the first month and $2.99 afterwards.
You can also just buy a one-time non-recurring 30-day access, download the game and then sign up again in a few months when there is enough new content available if that makes more sense for you financially.

02:03 trailer -> changing this futa female to a regular male demon should not be too laborious and it (demon) could change from female to male this way you could make game futa-free for people who do not like girls with balls and not change game plot at all.
Astaroth [admin] - 05/05/2022 16:58
Or you can simply skip the scene. The vast majority of content in the game is non-futa and honestly this topic is starting to get tiresome.
Dark Slaver - 05/05/2022 19:40
Do the game your way. I for one am intrigued and looking forward to the release.
Bob - 05/05/2022 22:29
So skipping the art you made is the solution, rather than making a second male model, which shouldn’t be much of a problem, or putting on a strap-on or something. How many scenes will I have to skip ? 20% ? Let’s say you sell pizza and tell your vegan customers to skip the meat ? Or do you make a vegan pizza ? If I am vegan, I want to eat 100% of the pizza, not 80%. Will I get a 20% discount on your game if I don’t want to see beautiful women with unsavory dicks ? I don’t think so – so why am I paying for 100% of your game and getting 80% ? If you’re tiresome it’s because you haven’t thought it through. So futa lovers and people who don’t mind it must be the majority of your customers because they get 100% and people like me will just have to skip it ? Good to know that i am in minority that will get 20% less content. If you get so many arguments about futa stuff mayby istead of getting tired of it ? Get an idea of it how to eat your cake and keep it same time so no one feels like minority and everyone is happy ?
Astaroth [admin] - 05/05/2022 22:56
Changing the character to male doesn’t fit the story, so we’re not doing that. And we will be adding more non-futa content, so how is that different to changing already existing content? We spend the same amount of time and you end up with the same amount of non-futa content either way.
Honestly, I checked the comments and it’s mostly you complaining about the futa content. While not everyone is into this stuff (which is understandable), we made sure it is optional and looks like most people are ok with that. You like it, you watch it, you don’t like it, you just skip it.
We value each of our players and listen to feedback, but at the end of the day, you can’t please everyone 100%. If you feel there’s not enough content for you, then it’s fine, just move on and play another game.
I think this discussion isn’t going anywhere and while I’m personally against excessive moderation, just be aware that if you’re just going to keep complaining about futa stuff, I don’t see a point of discussing it anymore.
Bob - 06/05/2022 06:11
You totally miss the point. The game will take off and you’ll start getting questions: why there isn’t a button on the start screen to select a fetish – just like there was a slider in the previous game with homo and hetero interactions. And instead of making a game for everyone as you advertise, you made a game revolving around Futa which is crucial for the story. And to be clear this is not a complaint about Fetishes but about a pizza from which I have to take out the meat to make it vege. If you haven’t understood yet, you won’t until game launches. I won’t take up any more of your precious time. Cheers!
Astaroth [admin] - 06/05/2022 13:16
Ok, so on the final note – we will consider adding a global futa on/off switch in options if it’s really an issue for many players.
Peeko - 07/05/2022 15:10
Following your ‘pizza example’, you are asking the chef not to take off some ingredient you dont like but to change the whole product like “i dont like cheese, put some spaghetti instead! and change the base for a steak”. Do you get it this way? This, and any other game/product (where they invested a few years btw), are their creations, if you dont like it, dont buy it, if you like most of it but not everything, its up to you to decide if the part you like its worth or not the money.
Bro, you sound literally like a Karen here…
Astaroth [admin] - 07/05/2022 15:54
I mean, in a perfect world we would make a separate game for every audience (like making a specific pizza for each customer), but that’s just not possible when a single game takes about 2 years to make. Even then, there would probably be people complaining “why are you wasting resources on X instead of making more of Y”. That’s just how it is.
With that said, if we can make quality of life changes to address customer feedback, we will, as long as it’s reasonable resource-wise. Yesterday we added a Futa “on/off” switch in options, so players who don’t want to see futa content won’t even have to manually skip in anymore.

Wow, did not expect it to be so soon, when you said May i expected end of the month, very welcome surprise.
Any update on steam release date?
Astaroth [admin] - 02/05/2022 21:28
It releases in Steam Early Access on May 18. Early Access does not mean the game is incomplete, it’s more like a precaution in case some unexpected issues appear.
Khamul - 01/05/2022 06:41
Finally! Waiting so long for this, can’t wait to see!
Khamul - 01/05/2022 06:30
Great as always, keep the good work, guys!
