there seems to be a problem with regaining energy. even with a full day of resting, hanging out and whatnot, I wake up to find that my energy is at 10. day after day.

Thanks for the feedback.

The energy stat is still not functional. While some activities already set it right many still don't. And for now nothing happens if your energy is too low.
I will update it in 0.0.3 that will have the game calendar reach may 17th in the in-game calendar events.

If I had to guess, I would bet on her being set to return later, possibly a little shamefaced. :P

Clara's behavior was purposely made like that, however I think I exxagerated things a bit with her (just by one point value, technically speaking), as many people already reported.

In 0.0.3 I will nerf her a little about this.

Examinations in 0.0.3 will be revamped with new layers of simulation and difficulty. News about this are going to be posted tomorrow at my Patreon page (public news, you won't need to be a Patron to see them). If you like visit the page http://www.patreon.com/generalpractitioner

0.0.3 will be completed and free for all around 26/06/2017 and will introduce LOTS of new content. A partial changelog can be found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/whats-in-0-0-3-11311894

The medical examinations in 0.0.3 will be revamped with the introduction of a new dismissal system. As of version 0.0.2 the examination endings consisted in telling the patients the cause of their problem, while automatic dialogues were given about prescriptions and discharge.

Starting with 0.0.3 the dismissal part asks the player more questions, such as:

- Evaluation of the disease/illness/wound

- Prescriptions (if any)

- Discharge orders (defer to a specialist / hospital / home care)

This way I'm adding an extra layer of simulation and a new level of difficulty, since it won't be always easy to choose an option over another (especially after the first three "tutorial exams").

Rita's and Clara's examination were also changed to the new system, so since old savegames won't work in 0.0.2 it's a chance to test it right away.

In case you're wondering how far I am into the development of the next alpha version for the game here's the changelog as of today.
In the list everything marked as "D" before the "*" is actually "Done", while the other things are in development.

D* Corrected some grammar errors in dialogues
D* Added two game modes:
- STORY MODE is the complete experience of General Practitioner. You will live as doctor [player_name] [player_surname] and manage your time between your job and your free time
- EXAMINATION MODE is the game focused only on the medical examinations. You will visit one patient after another without all the other game elements.
D* Added interview with dr Kirkman at start of game
D* Added a new stat: Sexperience
- Sexperience will determine the outcome of many sexual-related events. You may acquire sexperience by choosing certain dialogue paths or attending certain locations or events
D* Added marital status for the player character
D* Added sister/cousin for the player character
- The story arc will begin any morning after May 8th if no other events take priority and only if you choose "Clinic" as your morning's activity
- You will receive a phone call from your sister/cousin telling you she's coming to your place with her daughter
- They will arrive after 2 days from the phone call
- A new activity "Family Time" will be avalaible until they are your guests. This activity unlocks some events with them.
- It is possible, if a week since their arrival has passed and you didn't select "Family time" activity that some of the events will never occur
- If no special events are happening you will still increase your bond with your sister/family every time you choose "Family Time"
* Developed sister/cousin first part story arc
D* Clara's examination won't start until May 2nd
* New examination avalaible: Anne
D* New examination avalaible: Paul
- Paul's examination won't start until May 4th and until you finished Clara's
D* New activity avalaible: gym
D* New activity avalaible: pool
* New activity avalaible: Church
D* New activity avalaible: "massage parlour"
* Added some lines of conversation at ray's
D* Character Norah introduced in Massage Parlour
D* Added sex scene with ...
D* Clinic is now closed on Sundays ("Work" action won't be avalaible on sundays)
* Church is now open on Sundays ("Church" action will be avalaible on sundays)
D* Examinations will now end with new requests for the player:
- Diagnose the disease
- Prescribe medications
- Plan a follow up and recommend more exams

* Added a "Vanilla" game mode which contains the full story without all sexual parts (could be finished implementing in 0.0.4)
* Added many options to flirt with a patient in the examination room. These options won't be present in the "Vanilla" game mode (see previous point)

What do you think about these new additions to the game? Write down your impressions, I need your feedback while I go on with the game.

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.
