      You mean a sequel to Cockwork Industries? We plan to at some point in the future, but not anytime soon.

    I want to ask if we have interaction options in videos in secret files and personal files after unlocking and re-watching them in the main game menu.

    I’m really impressed with your work. I have became an adict to it, I have almost finished it completely in a few days. Perfect rendering, wonderfull animations, good story. The minigames were funny but not clear, it took me some time to understand the system; except the last minigame, was it really neccesary for that kind of game? Please, release your next game ASAP, I can’t wait for more. I’m your fan forever.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the game. I am having difficulty getting better then a poor rating. I am curious about the mechanics in achieving the score. Does the foreplay scene affect the overall score or is it just a pre-cursor to get to the sex scene (and ultimately the score). The only guide I have to go on is the thermostat. By the end I have nearly reached the top but still NEVER achieved more then poor. I am willing to keep trying but if I understood better how the rating is earned I could focus better.

    Is there a way to disable the pixelation that covers the genetals? It was strange to see this considering some images on he digital seductions site has uncensored images, and so was disappointing to see this in game. Is there a patch?

      Astaroth [admin] - 05/12/2019 16:28

      Did you buy the DLC Pack on DLSite as well? If you didn’t, you can buy the DLC Pack from either Affect3D or and it will remove censorship mosaic in the entire game.

    After I finish the game, when clicking on “Secret Archives” I get an error that says:


    Feature not supported in versions of game marked X.XR

    I bought the game through Nutaku – not sure if that makes a difference.

      Yes, this is explained in the FAQ. I’ve sent you an e-mail regarding that.

    With a couple of games done I have to ask:

    – Could you explain how to beat the final mini-game? Every time I fail multiple times.
    – How do you unlock the other secret achievements? Only ones I’ve done are Volatile Mix and Nailed It.

      I do have the same problem. I do click on the buttons but still fail…

      • Astaroth [admin]

        Astaroth [admin] - 30/11/2019 01:33

        It didn’t occur to us before, but I think you guys can’t finish it because you only press the buttons and sometimes you also have to click the monitor on the left side of the screen once it turns red. Sorry that we didn’t specify this clearly enough. We will include a better QTE description in the next update.

    I was curious about exactly which sex summary options there are and how it affects the story. Or rather is there a way to better increase by chances of getting better than a “poor” rating. It seems that even though I fill up the action bar, I can’t get better than a “poor” rating, Simplified mode skips the foreplay which is a bit of a bummer and seems to default to a “decent” sex summary score.

    Any help in unlocking the best possible summary score would be greatly appreciated, I don’t like it when the ladies frown at me. 🙁

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 03/12/2018 15:44

      The sex summary scores don’t affect the story at all, it’s only for fun. In Adventure Mode there are four possible scores – “poor”, “decent”, “good” and “flawless”. With “good” or “flawless” score you get the same image as with “decent” score, only the descriptions differ. Initially we planned to expand on that (adding additional images, rewards etc. based on your score), but it turned out many people found the sex mini games frustrating, so we decided not to.

      If you still wish to try to get a better score, here’s some advice:

      1. In foreplay mini games look at the portrait reaction most of all. If the character is dissatisfied, you need to stop and try a different body part before the ring around the portrait starts blinking red (which means you are starting to get negative points). Holding the mouse button after the bar fills up will eventually start counting negative points as well. Also remember to alternate between different body parts as touching the same body part second time straight after the first causes a negative reaction.

      2. The sex mini games are rather straightforward. Just hit as many points as you can and that’s really it. Once you get the timing right, these should be quite easy.

      I hope this helps.

        Thanks, perhaps I’ll give it a another try, although I could have sworn I’d filled the action bar up but still got a poor rating.

        For what it’s worth I’ll admit the mini game during the sex scene was rather distracting, but I actually liked it during the foreplay section, which as I mentioned before, I was little disappointed to see it missing from simplified mode.

    With a team of just two people I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of this game and its sex scenes. Hope you won’t waste too much time and effort on the less important aspects here, and rather focus the dlc’s mainly on more sex scenes. The client and everything else works great aside from the save game system perhaps.

    The last minigame felt a bit off too. It just takes time.

    Maybe one small thing for the comming dlc’s could be to add a button to the sex scenes that lets you move back and forward between the positions at will.

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 18/11/2018 16:46

      Thanks for the feedback! We’ll definitely consider those suggestions for DLCs and future releases.

    Are you gonna put some long nails on your avatar in the game ??? Tx

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 09/11/2018 00:10

      Are you asking if you’ll be able to play as a female character? Not in this game, but we’ll have female playable characters in future games for sure.
      If you were asking about something else, you need to be more specific.

        Maximus - 15/11/2018 03:19

        Tx for the respond but im talking about the nails of the girls, i would like that some girls got long nails just like many girls in sodoms sluts for exemple!

        • Astaroth [admin]

          Astaroth [admin] - 03/12/2018 15:52

          There’s still a new girl coming for the second DLC, so if long nails fit her design, I don’t see why we shouldn’t do that. Overall though, if you like the Sodom Sluts aesthetics, you should probably wait for the SS-themed game that’s coming in the future. There’ll be long nails for sure ;-).

    Hopefully the next game has a white MC. Can’t really get into playing as a black dude.

      strippertipper - 19/05/2019 07:25

      This is not a one off problem. Add a patch that can change MC skin.

        Tokage [admin] - 19/05/2019 10:01

        I’m getting really tired with those kind of “requests”. For the last time: forget about changing gender/race options for MC, in both Cockwork or any upcoming game. Don’t bother with that kind of comments/requests as it simply ain’t gonna happen for numerous reasons: a/ a shitload of unnecessary work (it’s not a 3D game where you can simply “re-texture” the model, all of the scenes that involve MC would have to be re-rendered, code must have been rewritten to point to different graphical assets and so on) b/ while not necessarily an issue with Cockwork Industries there will be stories where gender/race is an important PLOT POINT and simply cannot be changed c/ there is no possible way we can cater to all the preferences that are out there. We do our thing – if you’re unhappy with it, there is ton of other devs whos works may be more appealing to you.

    Really nice artwork and pretty good game. It was like an old school point and click adventure meets a VN. Also, thanks for including an optional gay path. I’m sure there’s been some flack over it, but it was much appreciated. Can’t wait to see what else you do.

    Honestly if I were you guys I would never make a H-game with mini-games in it again, with or without them being in the middle of the actual H-scenes. I would even go as far as to consider just removing them from this game entirely.

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 31/10/2018 22:47

      We’re currently working on a gameplay update that will allow you to choose if you want to play the sex mini games or just watch the scenes.

    naughtytico - 31/10/2018 15:16

    Can you include a replay for the minigame , Maybe a shortcut in the start menu

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 31/10/2018 15:40

      Not possible at the moment, but we might be able to add something like that in the future. In the current version, you can re-watch the scenes using an online link in “Personnel Files” after you finish the game.

    amazing guys , the best graphics and animation i ever seen , LOP /sex&glory/Patreon games can’t compete with this quality.
    but there are some things that could be better like adding more exciting stuff to the story because the game is short , more romance scenes or variety/options in romance scenes.
    but off-course i understand to get that quality it took alot of time and effort.
    great work guys.

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 30/10/2018 17:58

      Thanks! We worked hard on that one, so we appreciate the praise 🙂

      We have DLCs planned for the game, so more sex scenes and romance options are coming.

    Hey, you don t have a sound menu or a window mode play! Also, your game is great, keep it like that! You should concentrate on this side!

    • Astaroth [admin]

      Astaroth [admin] - 29/10/2018 13:15

      There are obviously things that could be added, like the ones you mentioned. Adding those options is not as easy and quick as it seems and requires coding knowledge we’re still in the process of acquiring (though we’ll obviously see if those can be added eventually). Keep in mind that while I focus on writing the guide, Tokage is constantly working on the programming side of things, so no resources are lost in that regard.
