Newlife 0.3.15

Hello everyone!

Version 0.3.15 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.

Version of 0.3.14 is now public. You can download it using the links on the right-hand side of the blog. The 0.3.14 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
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.

The main change for this version is a new scene that branches off from dates. This is similar to the porn cinema one, although this one can be initiated by either the player or her date if the requirements are met.

Here's the full changelog:

Major changes & additions:
  • One new scene which can be accessed from a date if you or the guy you're out with have certain traits.
  • You can now ask your partner to remove a condom, as requested on Patreon by Fiery Dog Poop, which I assume is not their real name.

Minor changes & bugfixes:
  • Fixes to text issues. Thanks to atc, death25, plundernoob, notyou & secondarian for reporting problems they found.
  • Added a change suggested by neokenka where the player will get a willpower hit if she has a lot of orgasms. This counts all orgasms across the scene-chain (e.g. nightclub-home-sex-morning after) regardless of how you have them or who you have them with. The effect starts at 3 orgasms – one or two does not give you a penalty. The maximum effect is at a fairly ridiculous 10+ orgasms and is as large as the maximum alcohol modifier.
  • Added shortcut keys to the describe people ('D') and describe scene ('S') buttons, as requested by LavBlu
  • Slightly improved the variety of sexy outfits npcs can pick (in e.g. the befriend scene where you go shopping).
  • Fixed a bug where concert invitations were not becoming less likely as the pc attended them. The chance of a concert being on in any particular week will now reduce as the pc goes to them, with the maximum reduction after attending two.
  • Npc who get drunk will now have an extra line in their descriptions with a clue to how soused they are – this was a suggestion from Baby J on Patreon.
  • Npcs can now autonomously wear condoms if the pc is on the pill or pregnant, but the action is rarer in these situations.
  • Slightly rewrote some of the male npc clothing descriptions.
  • Fixed a very unusual situation reported by Cubano where you can end up having a 0-year anniversary.
  • Fixed a problem in one scene reported by death25 where you can end up drinking alcohol even when pregnant.

Update: the following changes were added in an improved version released 22/01:
  • Fixes to text issues reported by Cubano and BleepBloop
  • Made it easier to orgasm during the pervy client office scene by firstly increasing the arousal bonus for low-self-esteem characters and secondly adding another boost for characters with the overactive imagination trait who go to his office without wearing underwear. This only applies to the office version of the scene – the home one is unchanged.
  • Rewrote the booty-call scene to have more variation, including some new lines for men who like oral sex.
  • Added some lines for men who like oral sex to the scene where your partner visits when you're stressed out.
Enjoy the new version, and let me know if you find any bugs!

Newlife Art

Hello everyone!

Development progress is slow this week as I'm ill. However, in these dark and rainy times we have good news - the talented artist Elanwye has completed a piece of art for Newlife which I've put on the Patreon page to replace the crummy old screenshot of an outdated version of the UI.

I've also updated to Patreon's new profile version. Sadly this only shows the top part of the image, so I'm putting the whole version here - click the picture to see it full-sized. I'm really impressed with it, and I think you all will be too. Enjoy it, and check out Elanwye's deviantart page to see more of her art.
