Anyone figure out what to say to Clara? Also, where does the game end in 0.0.2? Seems to only go to day 2 and then just repeats.



the three questions are:
1. 'Any present or past illnesses I should be aware of?'
2. 'Are you taking medication right now?'
3. 'How old are you?'
3.a. 'Probably a nurse asked you about that'

That what I found to work.

Clara's examination has been fixed in 0.0.3.

The game ends there, apart from a brief scene in Ray's Bar.

In 0.0.3 I added 2 new examinations, many daily activities (gym/pool/church/massage parlour), the start of a chain of Events ("Family Time") which involves your sister/coursin and niece and that will continue in 0.0.4, some dialogues in the massage parlour (with sex scenes too) and two new game modes.
I also added the ability to flirt with patients during the examinations, while introducing a new "Patient Trust" bar which can determine the outcome of an examination.
In 0.0.3 the game will end on May 31st (game time).


0.0.3 will be released for free on June 30th.

Latest release (0.0.4) can be downloaded here: https://goo.gl/xaeof4

IMPORTANT:
Previous saved games are not compatible with this release, not even those from 0.0.4c, that's because of the changes introduced in both examinations and the Codex.
I'm sorry for any trouble this might mean to you.
You still can play the game without restarting it, but you'll get some errors you need to ignore along the way.
I'm working on a way to make you skip the previously played content, but for now it's not implemented.

GENERAL:
* Corrected some bugs
* Fixed a problem when examining Rita's breasts. The examination won't proceed automatically to the abdomen.
* Starting with the 4th examination the "3 questions/exams" limit has been removed. You may now perform as many exams as you like. Beware though that making unnecessary examinations will lower your final evaluation.
* Added a summary of choices made in Family Time story arc. The summary will play after the event is completed.
* Revamped all choices with a new system based on "switches". This system will pave the way to achievements in later updates.
* Waiting Room has been changed, I wanted something that looked like a small clinic and not a big city one. You can still improve the clinic in future updates to get back the big one.
* Added some dialogues in Erika's introduction to the Clinic
* A new calendar animation is available. This substitutes the text string "It's Monday, May 1st, what should I do?"
* A new achievement system has been added! New achievements will be implemented as updates are available
* Added 158 new images (343 total)

GAMEPLAY
* You can now earn charme by going to the gym (+5) or to the pool (+3)
- These stats are still a mere placeholder and don't have any usefulness yet
* Added new dialogue options at the end of Trip to Seattle's storyline. The new dialogue will introduce players to Hospital Exam's game mode
* Added medical instruments to perform advanced examinations. The instruments' catalogue and buying options will be available in future updates. For now the game will act as you own them for free.

EXAMINATIONS:
* Added new introductions to every examination released until now
* New examination available: Monique
- Monique is a flirtable character in story mode
- Monique exam will start after May 14th and after Anne's
* New examination available: Karen
- Karen's exam will start after May 20th and after Monique's
* New examination available: Robyn
- Robyn's exam will start after May 25th and after Karen's
* New hospital exam available: Nolan
- In Hospital exams you'll have not only to examine patients, but also to use instruments over them. When the stethoscope isn't enough you could need a portable EKG machine, needles or even a scalpel!
Choose your actions wisely because in hospital examinations the patient's lives are at stake!
- Working at the hospital will grant you a bonus of 500$ for each well-performed exam but if things get rough you could be investigated by both the Medical Board and the police! For Nolan bad consequences will be implemented in
future updates
* Added height and weight check in Rita's exam

STORY:
* New storyline: "Trip to Seattle"
- Depending on player's choices on the storyline a new sex scene could be accessible
- TTS will automatically start while playing the game and choosing daily activities. TTS is scheduled to begin on June 8th (in-game calendar) and then go on on June 12th.


Known issues:
- Vanilla mode is still not completely implemented. Vanilla mode is the same as "Story Mode" without sexual interactions of any kind.
- Stats/Money gain and loss is functioning, however stats are still not used in events nor situations
- The game will end on June 30th to prevent players to go further. Full version of the game will cover an additional 11 months and there will be at least two more events in May.

In development (available before final update on July 31st!):
* Added sound effects (breathing / heart) to all examinations

The latest public release of the game is available for free here:

http://www.indiedb.com/games/general-pr ... al-methods

INTRODUCING COMFORT LEVEL (CL)
Every examination has been updated to include the "Comfort Level" (CL) of a patient.

The CL substitutes the "Trust level" of the patient.
The comfort level of a patient is calculated both by the patient's trust towards you and his/her mood, education and shyness.
Every patient will have a different CL, it's up to you to raise it to a level where you can treat him/her in the best of ways.
Every action will affect the CL, from asking questions to having the patient undress to examining him/her body parts.

Each patient has a different mood. While a patient can be looking for professional doctors, another one could look for a more strict one.
Some even prefer a playful medic, while some others are looking for more sexual stuff. It's up to you to determine your patient's character and behave accordingly.

You can now reply to a patient in seven different ways:
- Calm
- Professional
- Strict
- Sensitive
- Charming
- Flirty
- Playful

Each patient will see his/her CL raise/lower based on your behaviour and his/her character. Each patient is now based on one of six archetipes (some will be added in future updates):
- Normal
- Doubtful
- Agitated
- Sad
- Shy
- Sensual
- Tired

Each archetipe works with the MC's methods in a rock/paper/scissors kind of combination. A sad patient could be stimulated by a playful answer, or even a calm one, while shy patients could get mad if they receive a flirty answer from their caregiver.

The CL influences everything in the exam, from asking a patient to undress to examining him/her, up to giving a proper medical evaluation of the issue at hand.


GENERAL:
* Bug fixing
* Added new Codex entries
- Codex entries now have pictures depicting the object of the entry
* Added 181 new images (as of 0.0.5a)
* Improved the coding of the game, which should now be smoother on slower machines
* Added a tutorial for the game
- You can disable the tutorial when starting a new game.
- The tutorial is always ON on Exam Mode
* Added a quick menu in the lower right corner of the screen
* Added a "Load" option in the contextual menu


GAMEPLAY
* You can now fast skip a new game directly to the new content introduced in the updates
- Click "New game", perform the interview with Dr. Kirkman and then follow the instructions on screen
* You can now interview and hire a new staff member from a pool of three
- Perks and costs of the new staff member are outlined in the game
* Vanilla mode is now completely implemented. Vanilla mode disables sexual content in the game.
* Examination mode's exam has been modified to include the changes made to the exams in story mode
* Examination mode will consider all staff to be available and every item as been bought
* You can now buy items from the store!
- Check the Codex for info about perks given by each item
- You can access the online shop in the Daily Planner after Rita's examination
* The 1st day of each month you will be prompted to pay wages for your staff and fees for your equipment

EXAMINATIONS:
* Comfort Level for each patient has been introduced (see the beginning of this changelog).

- Katia's exam will start after June 18th
- In the final game Katia's exam will be restricted to whose that hire Dr. Borelli in the staff. However, since the other examinations are still in development the game will act as you hired Dr. Borelli.
THIS IS NOT A BUG.
- Katia is not a flirtable character
* New examination available: Mark
- Mark's exam will start after June 18th
- In the final game Mark's exam will be restricted to whose that hire Dr. Kaplan in the staff. However, since the other examinations are still in development the game will act as you hired Dr. Kaplan.

Hey guys.
You can find release 0.0.6 - "Ice Dream" here: http://www.indiedb.com/games/general-practitioner

This is the biggest update ever released for this game, I hope you'll enjoy it. To start Rita's story arc you just need to start a new game, complete her examination and then explore city until you find the ice-cream shop.

I won't detail the following steps because I also need to know if all gameplay interactions are smooth as well, so if you find any trouble please let me know.

For the first time the game will be available for Mac, Linux and Android devices!

To install the Android APK you need to unlock "installation from unknown sources" in your device's settings.

Please note that since every Android device is different I can't help you with issues regarding your phone and you might need to refer to your local service provider.

As usual please read the changelog and avoid to report what's already in "Known issues" part. Thank you very much!

Some screenshots ahead:

You can now follow me on Twitter (www.twitter.com/BruniMultimedia) and of course at www.brunimultimedia.com

Be safe and healthy!

Hi There.. Nice game so far.. Just a few things I noticed.. You may want to move the blue block that states the amount of money, it currently blocks some of the text and very difficult to read.. Also not a good idea to have white text on a white back ground. the text blends in and becomes invisible.. However looks good so far..
Thanks
Mike.

The seventh major update to General Practitioner is now available for free to all!

Image

Here you will be able to discover more about Erika, whose dialogue options have been revisited throughout the entire game!

You can also invite your sister/cousin at the Festival, along with her niece. With her you can go to the beach, eat a drooling hotdog, visit the mall and buy an icecream at Miranda's Icecream Shop (yeah, the one where Rita works, with interactions that will change depending on your relationship with her).

You can always skip to the update right before the festival start. Of course Erika won't be the only dateable character in the update, since her friend Vanessa and even Vanessa's boyfriend Aaron seem to be very interested in the doctor (yeah, this will unlock male/male romances, but only if you want them to be available).

You will also experience a new hospital exam: Kamil's. This exam will test your skills in the game and its outcome will surely surprise you. Let me know if you liked it, I'm very interested in knowing that. Serena's exam was released last week with 007b.
Helena's exam is the last Clinic Exam released with this update!

Discover new locations and places to hang out with your loved ones and use the new interface to get informations about stats and skills with a single click.

Please read the changelog as it contains many useful infos about the update and how to start events!

Some users report an issue with the calendar in this release, as sometimes it makes the player repeat a day before proceeding further. This has been definitely fixed with 008 "Daily Chooser".

You can find the download links on https://www.brunimultimedia.com/downloads.html
or on Indiedb: http://www.indiedb.com/games/general-pr ... /downloads .

The game is available for PC, Mac, Linux and Android devices.
