Newlife 0.3.7 released with doggy-style sex

Hello everyone!

The doggy-style sex scene is finally ready for release, after countless delays. There's still work to be done around improving the path to it from the makeout scenes, but the sex scene itself is done and I hope you'll enjoy it.

Version 0.3.7 of Newlife is finished and I've released it on Patreon. Early-access Patrons can find it in the creations section here. The changelog is below.
That also means that the 0.3.6 release has been made public. I've updated the links here on the blog, so you can download it now from here. The 0.3.6 changelog is here.

As usual, saved files & templates from older versions probably won't work with newer ones. 


For new players - just use one of the links to the right to get either the jar or the exe version. You only need one or the other - not both. I recommend trying the jar first.

For either version you'll need to have Java installed. A lot of programs use Java so you might well already have it. If the jar shows up as an unrecognised file type, then you probably don't. In that case you can get it from http://www.java.com/
The exe should tell you if you don't have the right version on your computer, but you'll still need to install java to run the game.
There's a guide for new players here which includes some troubleshooting tips for installation & downloading.


Here's the full changelog for 0.3.7:
  • Fixes to text issues. Thanks to Pandora Reed, Cubano, death25 & souldead341 for reporting problems they found.
  • Fixed the player's arousal increase for feeling her breasts during cowgirl sex being too high if she had the sensitive breasts trait.
  • Some other small modifications to a few sex actions, usually to take into account preference information that wasn't being checked.
  • Fixed a bug where encouraging the pervy client multiple times could have unintended effects on the actions he chose.
  • If you've had sex with the pervy client, then he'll always count as being “encouraged” in any future scenes – unless you've also beaten him up at some point. Due to limitations in the information that the game tracks, this only applies to penetrative sex, not oral.
  • Following a bug report by OrangeJuice, modified the treasure hunting event so there's only one npc this can happen with in each game. The initial conditions are the same as before, with multiple npcs who could join for for it, but once the scene has happened once then any future occurrences will always have the same man. This prevents various odd or nonsensical storyline problems. The probability of the event firing will normally be unchanged, but it will become unavailable if it happens once and then you unfriend the npc or let your relationship with him drop.
  • The treasure-hunting scene can now trigger with your boyfriend, as long as you've been treasure-hunting with him before. It won't happen for the first time the event fires though – I guess treasure-hunting is something he does to get some “me time” and he doesn't want his girlfriend along unless you already have that sort of partnership.
  • Mums can now play with their existing baby while waiting for the results of a pregnancy test.
  • Fixed an issue reported by Cubano where breakfast choices didn't depend on owning cooking gear. You now need to have bought this to serve any breakfast that requires cooking (i.e. the full English and porridge choices).
  • Ambitious characters no longer get the increased stress from working once they've reached a top-level job in their career – currently just “elite saleswoman”. Top-level jobs have an extra line in their description explaining this, so it should be obvious which ones they are when the promotion is available.
  • The makeout 'push him away' type actions are no longer automatically disabled when you get close to orgasm, but now require a willpower check instead. For an average willpower character, this means they'll tend to become unavailable earlier than before.
  • Men can no longer initiate sex or move to an more intense makeout position the same turn that you've taken one of the opposite actions (e.g. “push him away”, “move his cock away”).
  • Added the doggy-style sex scene, which can be initiated from the lying-down makeout by either you or your partner. At the moment the actions that get you on your hands & knees immediately start sex. This will change in future updates once a parallel set of makeout actions have been written and hands & knees can be made into a separate sub-position similar to when your character is on top.


Enjoy the new version, and let me know if you find any bugs!

  2. I'm liking the sound of all of this, but there's one thing that bothers me.

    All of my favorite sex and dating scenes come from early in the date with an asshole, when he treats you like dirt.

    Is there any chance that in the future there will be a character trait, something like "unlucky", you can take that will cause people to be less nice to you? And maybe a character trait certain NPCs can have where they treat you nice early in the relationship (or, combined with the asshole trait, nice-ish), and then treat you worse as they "fall in love" with you? Because that's the way it works in real life. Plenty of people act sweet in the beginning, but don't have their partner's happiness in mind at all, and treat them bad to keep them dependent. And some people just seem to have a string of bad luck all of the time, too.

    So, like if you had "unlucky", and the npc had "asshole" and "sociopath", then the relationship is gonna be shit all throughout, even if you get married? And even if you're real charming, friendly, nice and flirty, and they love all of that?

    2. Well, depending on what background you yourself choose you can "prolong" the men treating you like shit. Basically choose the bitchy trait (being shy also helps) and be rude/cold/mean to him whenever you can, stopping sex in the middle of the act, kicking him out from your house randomly after inviting him home, slamming the door in your BF face when he comes for a surprise visit, step on his feet when you dance etc. That's the only way I've found to keep the men being assholes and stop them from falling in love with you. Doing so will lead to them disliking you as a person, but it wont stop them from trying to get into your pants if they think you're good looking enough. Try to go for the crude/sleazy types, having small breasts while they like large, dressing like a slut for the men who like classy girls, behaving in an erotic manner to the guy who likes classy girls, and vice versa, behave shy and cute to the men who likes the sexy naughty girls, are a few other ways to make them dislike you and thus treating you like shit.

      Well, having access to the cheat menu and the psychic (which lets you see all the peoples personality's) also helps a lot, constant reloading/restarting to get the type of men with the correct personality's you seek is also recommended.

      Played around with 3.7 version quite a bit today, and with the new doggy style scene, the men who really dislike you, will treat you "very" roughly. So far I'm loving it, keep it up SO, keep the rough sex coming. :)

      Haven't found any bugs for far, although there are quite a few spelling errors in the new scene.

    3. "You glance over your shoulder at Joshua and gasp that know you aren't the sort of girl men usually like so he should go ahead and do whatever it takes for him to enjoy sex with you"

      Super dirty but so hot. I think you need the low self esteem and plain face attributes for this to trigger.

      Delete
    4. Anlu, I know about that, and usually pick plain faced and bitchy or shy, and avoid good character traits. But my fetishes lean more towards porn movies, where beautiful and nice, but flirty, women get treated badly, not the other way around. And if only a few NPCs did this (plus the player character could just be really unlucky, and so get a bit of that from everyone) it would be closer to real life too. Being beautiful and nice and charming and clever helps, but it's no guarantee that you'll be treated like a Disney princess, not in real life. A lot of it still comes down to picking the right date, and luck. In real life some people treat you worse the nicer and more charming you are, or the more beautiful you are. Not a lot of people, but some people.

    5. Couldn't this be solved by an "ask him to be rough with you" option that has him act as if he dislikes you? Heck, this might even work with nice or romantic men, if you can pass a willpower or charm check to convince him to act that way. A lot of normal, loving couples still enjoy a bit of role-play nastiness, and this would also keep assholish men that way during a date/sex while allowing for a good relationship.

      It's also a bit of a disappointment that the "enjoys getting girls pregnant" trait seems to be limited to selfish/jerkish men.

      Delete
    6. Couldn't this be potentially solved by an "ask him to be rough" option, such that you can still keep an assholish guy that way while he still has feelings for you? It could even work for caring/romantic guys with a willpower or charm check, maybe as a role-play.

      Delete
    7. Better that that was yet another option, not that it would replace the others. It adds to the realism, and fun.

      And there wouldn't even need to be any extra flavor text for any of it (unless Splendid Ostrich just wanted to.) It would just require changing the order of the flavor texts.

      Delete
    8. I think it would be neat if it had the "ask him to be rough" option as a direct counterpart to the "ask him to be more gentle" one, which also considers the traits of the guys when it comes to possible responses. Enthusiastic dialogue from a guy who's been told to be more vigorous I think would work better than the meek apologies or malicious insults that can result when using the "be more gentle" option.

      Delete
    9. An "ask to be more rough" would be perfect for me I think.

    10. To the anon:

      Pretty much all men with the "asshole" trait will treat you like this at the start before they fall in love and mellow out. Mainly I choose selfish men or assholes (depending on my mood) when I start a new game, that combined with the psychic trait from the cheat menu gives me a lot more room to customize the game to suit me and my own preferences.

      The problem for me, was to find a way to keep them being assholes. The only way I found was to treat them in the same way. This could only be accomplished if your character was good looking enough (or hit enough of their fetishes), being "plain" mostly made them dislike you and not turned on enough to even want to try to get into your pants, even if you throw yourself at them. During my games, I've found one or two npc:s which really stood out though, they just hated you from the start, even when I tried everything to get them to like me, the refused even to dance with me, even if I dressed and acted to meet their specifications, so I'm guessing there are some hidden stats as well.

      To the anon 2:

      Yep, for plain characters with low self esteem will speak like this when talking sexy, the doggy-style scene really does takes it to another level though. Not going to spoiler any fun though. :p

      Cubano:

      Agreed! That would be a really nice addition. Now all we have is "asking him to be gentler" action. Which by the way (for the anon above) works in the opposite way if he dislikes you, then his actions are even more aggressive and rough instead. The "pulling him into you" action will sometimes trigger him to be more rough and aggressive (guessing it's happens more frequently for the vigorous and enthusiastic lovers). Talking sexy and NOT complaining when he does handles your character roughly, also does seem to help a small bit in this regard So having the option to "encourage" the npc:s to be mean and rough while having sex in some other way than I described, is a great idea.

    11. "You moan and whimper, begging [guy] to let loose and eat you up like the monster he is."

      "You manage to gasp that you've been really naughty today, and that [guy] should punish you for it."

      Cheesy, yeah, but I do second Anlu and Cubano on this.

      Delete
    12. The whole point for me is NPCs that want to marry you so they can keep you around and abuse you for a lifetime. People like that exist in real life you know, not everybody falls in love and has their heart thawed by your warm smiles or whatever. Actually narcissistic people tend to be more abusive to those that they find attractive and admirable and sexy and interesting, and the more they fall in love the more abusive and controlling they get, that's in real life. And that's what I find sexy in my porn (which, by the way, most porn for men leans at least a little or heavily in that direction.)

      I want to play a nice, sexual, beautiful, shapely, friendly, outgoing girl with low self-esteem and willpower who is unlucky and so gets treated like dirt by everyone, who settles down and marries and starts a family with a man who's afraid of losing her and so treats her like dirt so her self-esteem is so low she thinks she deserves to be treated that way and that he's the only man that could love her. That's what I want. I don't know why that's so hard to understand. I don't want, "please pretend to hurt me," I don't want, "well if I just act bitchy toward this man all of the time, like I can read his mind and do exactly what he doesn't want every time, then maybe I'll get 50% through the relationship and he'll only be about half nice to me no matter what even though he's an 'asshole.'" I don't want that. Anymore I quit playing the game as soon as the guys start acting nice. That's just the way it is. It's not a criticism of the game, it's just me telling my opinion of what I would like. I don't know why everyone has to keep correcting me. I know what I want, and I've tried all of these "solutions", but me acting bitchy doesn't turn me on, and they come to like you and treat you nicer anyway, plus you can't "win" and have them fall 100% in love with you and marry you that way. I want to "win" and marry a complete fucking dick who likes his sex extremely rough and degrading, who takes me to the porn theatre and tells me I'm a bitch and tells me I'm only good for sucking his dick, when we're married with 3 kids, even though I desperately try to make him happy and please him. It's what I want.

      If you don't like it, well that's why it's opinions, boxes that you can check, or leave unchecked. I don't know why you don't want it to even be an option. I do. There could even be a disclaimer and an option to leave those completely out of the game for people that hate them, so you can't get them on the random mind traits, I don't care. If you hate that stuff, then leave it out, but I want it.

      When I masturbate I don't masturbate to me being a nasty bitch who has a super nice guy cuck of a husband who only likes gentle sex in the missionary position and who takes me out to Olive Garden and plies me with compliments and thanks me when I cheat on him. If that's what you like, fine. Is it ok with you if I don't like that?

    13. I don't think anyone's going to object to you not liking Olive Garden.

    14. A "masochistic" trait might suffice nicely. It could even convert cold guys into cruel ones, and other guys into cold ones, moving all or most NPC's one level crueler.

  6. What problems did having multiple guys available for the treasure hunt cause? Previously if you ended up finding trouble with a pencil neck or a lardo you could always wait and see if next time you pulled a buff dynamo more suited for adventuring.

    Replies
    1. All the "progress" that got tracked between events had been assuming it was always the same npc - there were several places where this was an issue, but the most blatant was that you could reminisce on your successful treasure hunt together with a man you'd never had the event with before.

      Besides, I think hunting for treasure at night in an industrial wasteland should be a bit of an unusual thing, rather than being standard practice for all the Interesting npcs out there!

  7. I'm wondering when we will be able to do it with two partners. Or with girls. But what gets me most curious; is if there will be more submissive positions, or maybe even possibility to ask your partner to take you in one of submissive poses.

    1. Lesbian content will come, but not especially soon - the friendship update needs to be complete first and then it'll come down to a vote on which major update gets done next.
      If by more submissive positions you mean things like bondage, then that's the sort of thing that's only really likely to show up as patron-requested content, although I did do the "boss strapped to a couch" scene without being specifically requested to, so I suppose I might get inspired for more stuff like that.

  10. I don't know whether this has been discussed before as I am new here, but will you be implementing our main character to be futanari? as in the hentai version where our protagonist get changed into a woman but somehow we retain our penis(and he/she still has a vagina >.<) after the scene with ivy in the beginning....
    I would love it if you do implement this into your game. :3
    Other than that Beautiful game..... ;)

    Replies
    1. Just to add on, in addition to the above stated topic you could give us a lesbian relationship. As in the main character never really became interested in man but instead still attracted to women(hence, lesbian scenes and futa to girl or man scenes ;d) Would really love these as an addition to your newer versions of the game.

      Delete
    2. Splendid Ostrich has stated that lesbian content is already planned to be included, but it is some ways off-it will require adding in a full random generation system for female NPCs like males have, adding female NPCs to nearly all current scenes and dealing with a mountain of bugs and minor errors to account for a different gender with different physical characteristics being added to existing scenes; not to mention creating entirely new scenes for interacting and having lesbian sex. Even converting current scenes to strap on-equipped ladies would be impractical, since current sex scenes rely heavily on the male's arousal and generally end when he cums. It will be in eventually, but it will take time. For the moment, there's a great scene in the club when dancing alone where you'll be approached by two women and they'll dance with you, with lots of touching, groping and fondling; get aroused enough and you can even cum during this scene (if you enjoy it, you're welcome; I got to plan it by winning the Patreon donor monthly draw, though SplendidOstrich ran with my suggestion and made it far more awesome than I imagined it as).

      As for futa, I believe SplendidOstrich has said no. Implementing futa would basically require rewriting all scenes in the game from the ground up and adding a whole extra set of mechanics to deal with having a cock, which would be far more complex than lesbian content already will be. Don't get your hopes up; even if SO approves futa content it will be WAY in the future.

      Delete
    3. Glad you're enjoying the game :)
      As Centurion says, futanari (or male) gameplay isn't realistic for Newlife. Pretty much every scene and gameplay mechanicwas written with the assumption that the pc is female, so adding anything else would mean essentially writing a whole new game.
      It might be possible for an isolated scene to be added as part of the endgame, but endgame-only content is something I don't want to do much with until the main part of the game is largely done.

      I've had several ideas for other games I might make when Newlife is finished, and some of them involve more flexibility with playable characters... although some of them don't and I haven't decided which would be best to work on.

      As for Lesbians, I think Centurion's answer is very good - actually they've given you a much more detailed one than I would have! Thanks Centurion :)

      Delete
    4. Once lesbian npcs are in it might be interesting to have a rare futanari npc or two.

      Delete
    5. A futanari npc would be less massive a change than allowing it for the player, but it would still likely be excessively large unless it was restricted to a particular scene.
      Lesbians are likely to get a fairly unsophisticated implementation where there'll be separate makeout/sex/dating scenes for lesbians and for men. Adding dateable futanari npcs would mean another set of these scenes, and they're some of the largest and most complicated ones in the game.

    1. Although I present them with a list of options, it's the voter patrons who decide which major update gets done next.
      The current one is Friendship which will be a while longer - there's several large changes still to do for it. Once that's complete I'll update the version number to 0.4.0 and run a vote to decide which major update to do next.

      I do intend to complete all the core updates before finishing the game - and before even thinking about any significant non-core changes.That means the femininity update will come eventually, but because it comes down to a vote I have no idea when it'll be.

    2. Seconded.

      Not because we are pervs (to be perv. in a game of female-changing due to a bald-cure....) but is realistic.

      Also...

      Let's hope for a "prove me wrong" about this.

      not that we hate you to the point of forcing you to do that, Marvellous Ostrich, but will be just too exciting :3

    3. As far as I know, SO's said adding rape scenes is a hard no, full stop, do not pass go, do no collect $200. Adding a 'roleplay being raped with your boyfriend in a safe, sane and completely consensual manner' is a possibility via 'prove me wrong' events or possibly patron bonus scenes, but otherwise I wouldn't get your hopes up.

      Personally I'm fine with this; plenty of TF and mind control games out there feature non-consensual sex, but it just doesn't seem like it would fit right in NewLife. If you're desperate, the game has something close already; try having sex with a jerk/selfish/asshole type guy you aren't attracted to without any foreplay to get you aroused first and it'll be painful and unpleasant; asking this personality type to be more gentle will generally result in him being even rougher and insulting you to boot.

    4. Rape scenes won't be added to the game, for various reasons that I may elaborate on when I write an FAQ.

  16. So I've been playing the 3.6 version, and the dialogue/description when you're watching the adult film is weird when you're playing a female start - it still describes "when you used to watch porn alone in your room as a man".

    Also is there plans to introduce exhibitionist content? Like maybe secretly having sex with your dance partner? I go through a lot of trouble to get a date back to my apartment, take of his pants and shirt, end the intimacy, strip my character, and then go dancing, but NOTHING HAPPENS. I am disappoint. (Just kidding.)

    Also is it going to be hard coded that most guys will only come once a night? I mean it's really weird that you bring home a guy after getting him off in a dirty alleyway, and he's not in the mood anymore even though you're stripping in front of him and bringing him a beer.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks, I've fixed that for the next version :)

      I probably will put in both exhibitionist and voyeuristic content, but I haven't really decided exactly what yet though. At the moment, I have some voyeur ideas but not much in the way of exhibitionism that I'm really inspired by. Still, there's some content of that sort that's up for voting for the "prove me wrong" milestone - we'll see what wins.
      Also, sex while dancing doesn't count as exhibitionism if you're alone in your flat! You at least need to buy that giant teddy bear to watch you :D

      Once a night is something I do plan to stick with, as I think the sex scenes would get quite repetitive across a 52-week playthrough if the amount of sex was increased by much. In fact, I've already had some requests to let people skip past the sex scenes!

      Delete
    2. Some suggestions for exhibitionist/voyeur content would be:
      - Sex in the middle of the dancefloor (only lesbians have that superpower?)
      - Sex at the office when you're not looking for a promotion (Maybe an option when your boss starts ranting?)
      - A way to initiate sex with the client, or maybe sneak around with him outside the client visits? (I find it odd that the client apparently won't ask for your number when he's obviously interested in extracurricular activity)
      - A way to take things to the next level in the adult cinema without going into the alleyway.

      >You at least need to buy that giant teddy bear to watch you :D

      I actually did that! The giant teddy bear is creepy/cute and I love it. :P

      And I respect your decision to make it once-a-night, but I do find it strange that the Unethical Experimentation Party seems to have not fixed male refractory periods. :P

      And yeah, I do think a "skip the sex scene description" option would be useful, I want an option for slutty characters to be able to get it on more than one night (esp. with "quick shot" guys).

      Delete
    3. Somewhat in the vein of exhibitionist/voyeur content, what about an alternate way to resolve the presentation with the boss event? Through skill or by luck, the player could release her boss in a way that didn't make continuing with the presentation impossible, and the boss could insist on fixing his "problem" with his own two hands so as to continue with the product demonstration. The player could be a passive observer, embarrassed or aroused as various traits would allow, or decide to offer some visual stimulation in the hope that it might help the boss get off faster.

      For sex without descriptions, I think something like that would make sense for when the game includes the player moving in with a guy. If they're sharing a bed and the assumption is that the player is getting it on more nights than she's not, then maybe there could be something like an "View sex with boyfriend" check box in the weekly planner screen that automatically adds a sex scene event in weeks that it's selected.

      Delete
  17. I like these ideas
    Another suggestion for exhibitionist content. At the gym : maybe have an option to take the "show off" action while training a bit further if you have the right kind of personality, clothes can "accidentally" shift/slip a bit too much, you know ;-)
    Also in the gym : when training together with someone. Allow them a bit of hands on time with you and feel you up (most seems to want that anyway).
    Perhaps a chance to get caught by staff and thrown out. Maybe some interesting reactions from some of the other guys working out, maybe leading to other stuff happening.... hmm Threesome in the change rooms =D

    Sorry if these ideas have already been suggested elsewhere.

    Keep up the good work Splendid, I really enjoy your game.

    However, this game let me knows that to pick a perfect another nearly impossible, (I random times and times), a ugly guy could be perfectly as a father and friend, and etc. Thank you for this game and sorry for bad grammar.

    1. Funding on patreon is close to the create your own NPC milestone, so you might be able to get the perfect guy that way.

    2. It's possible to get all those traits together - none of them prevent the others. As cubano says, the "create an NPC" milestone is probably what you want.
