Hey guys! Here's House Party 0.7.6 Beta! This update is mostly focused around bug fixes and polish, but there are a lot of interesting developments being introduced as well.
First off, you may notice the house is arranged and painted differently. We're preparing the game for our next story based around having a date night with Brittney, but we realized as we got into it that the house *looks* like people are having a party in it, what with alcohol, solo cups, and beer pong set up, etc...

We fixed this by redesigning the house to have more of a standard look, and we will be re-introducing the "party" elements down the line via story updates, so the custom stories will now have more of a say of how the house looks and is decorated.

This paves the way for us to begin writing new stories that will be available along-side the Original Story.



CHANGE LOG:

Added voice acting Lines for new dialogues
Improved lighting
Re-painted the house
Added a neighborhood and trees
Rearranged a lot of items to pave the way for new stories
Player can now only drink alcohol that is already in his inventory
Fixed a bug that allowed the player to ask Ashley to hand over her dirty clothes while at unintended locations
Fixed a bug that caused characters to spin with enthusiastic anger when they forget how to use a door
Improved/smoothed continuous dialogue interactions with Brittney
Fixed some issues with NPCs not getting re-dressed after coming out of the hot tub
Fixed an issue where you could escape Frank's wrath by sicking him on Patrick (Sorry)
Fixed an issue where Madison could incorrectly catch you stealing her diary when she's too far away
Fixed an issue where events in "Derek Smash" can happen before you get the quest
The kitchen slider can now be opened from inside as well as outside
Fixed duplicate thought bubble on the Raymond line in Madison's dialogue
Fixed an issue preventing the completion of one of Madison's quest-lines
Fixed an issue with completing the "Express Yourself" quest when some characters are in various states
Fixed an issue where the text would re-size on the Load Game dialogue
Bolted down a lot of items that could get lost or move somewhere that hinders the story
Removed Beer Pong Table and other "Party" elements so they can be re-introduced down the line as directed by the story

House Party 0.7.7 Info and Roadmap







Hey guys! Here are some updates about what's going on with us, and what to expect in the near future!
0.7.7 Release Info:

The new build is looking good. We fixed the issues that were breaking the older quests thanks to the bug reports we got in, and we're looking good for possibly an early release. Originally we anticipated releasing on 11/9/17, but it's looking like we'll have a new build out by late tomorrow or early Wednesday.

Translations:

With 0.7.7 we are finalizing a new way to translate the game into other languages. We are including a Mandarin Chinese translation packaged with the core game, and this will be the first of many languages that will start being available. Translations can be added to over time, so that any elements that are not translated yet, will just display in English in the game. The translations work as a mod, and are placed in the Mods folder. Translation export templates can be generated with the new Custom Story Creator.

New Content Coming Soon:

As many of you are aware, we hired a new writer on board, which means twice as much content twice as fast! I (Bobby) will continue writing the Original Story, and right now, we have the new writer working on a new alternate Story which will be a "Date Night With Brittney" (Working Title) story. Expect more of these alternate stories very soon, and also expect the new writer to get more involved with aspects of the Original Story.

Exciting stuff on the horizon!

Using the steam version here, and had a few bugs. When I ask Katherine to get private, she moves to the master bedroom, but then just stays there and I can't continue here story.
And is it normal with Ashley's story, that she is pissed after she blew you? Her text says, she enjoyed it though.

Hey there party people! 0.7.7 is now public! This update is bringing a ton of new features, new quests, and the ability to get drunk! You will notice a ton of aesthetic updates as well including the house layout, lighting improvements, and a neighborhood background. 0.7.7 also brings an update to the story creator that supports non-western characters, and a translation template that allows for easy translation of House Party into any language. We used this template to bring you an official Chinese translation of the game that is also available now.

Thanks to you all for your continued support and love for House Party!

Please enjoy this update, and stay tuned for future developments!

Hm, first thing I realized, the save games are gone. Is this intended or maybe a bug...

And the dialog with Rachael seems broken, can't talk to here anymore after 2 or 3 responses.

Yes, saved games are stored only with the version in which they are saved. For example, a save from 0.7.3 will be inaccessible while playing 0.7.7.

As for the Rachel quest, you may be missing a step in her quest that allows for new dialogue choices.

I believe this is similar to the other question, but yes saved games are not accessible across different versions of the game.
