xpadmin, I have cool idea. How about releasing version 3.51? Exactly same game but with next higher LODs of meshes and higher resolution textures? Hardware improved enough since last release.


I would be unhappy to learn of this dev spending any time doing this instead of working on the next version.

Amazing game!!!
I'll pay .016 BTC for a new version, or even just some new ladies. If not, please sell your source code and pass on the torch.
Thanks for all that you have created so far.

Like damn I can understand the process of developing and everything but most don't just ghost their whole fucking support for the game, ignore the "Do not want to give false hope or expectations" Bull shit because that's exactly what it is!! BULL SHIT!! You can post a simple, "Development is going well/bad". "We are having issues but we are staying in strong!!" Some simple shit to give 98% of the people supporting your amazing game some insight. Like holy shit there really isn't any game like this and its making me furious, I tried Vr mate or what ever its called. It looks nice, takes a lot to run but without VR its kinda complete shit, and i get that's what it's made for!! But maybe I played it wrong but there just wasn't much besides posing and sticking a models dick in a girl. This at least had some story and even though it might have not been the best still it made it fun more than just sandbox fucking like a lot of games. This has a bit of both but the story elements to me just made it a more joyful play through, Besides that singular game which is heavily made for VR which most people do not have anyway, There really isn't much compared to this and that like I said pisses me off seeing as I have to wait so long for the ONLY game of its specific kind to come out without a peep from the devs. Sorry if I seem angry but when you make a good game and there isn't much on the market similar and then say you're working on something even BETTER!!! But ghost out without a peep it makes people just dread this whole process, with updates or even the slightest info like, "We're working on it!!" It would at least give us some insight on whats going on instead of being left alone with the shitty sex game market that is currently out.


Best regards,

Hey @xpadmin, could you or anyone else explain why there isn't a crowd funding like patreon for this project? There are a lot of porn games out there making bank with this kind of support (virtamate, vrtitties, wild life, etc). Most of them have visual quality, but not nearly same complexity as this game. Wild life for instance is completely barebones compared to this, and they are making almost 30k/month (the other vr games surely make much more than that). With this kind of money you could hire a staff and speed up the process immensely. You have a gold mine here friend, you just need to dig it.

Only reason I can think for not taking this route is that he is an eccentric guy who only works alone and doesn't really care much for the money, only for his art. If that's the case we, fans of this beautiful game, are fucked.

They are to honest, they know it will take years to finish next version and patreon suporters want updates every month. None off the others are making there own engiene.

At this point, I'd pay $5 a month just for a status report.

Once they finally get around to releasing this version (Whenever that'll be.) They should really stick with it and not make newer versions. It really confused me as to why they decided to go this route on making multiple game versions and not just adding expansions to the already made game? So instead of multiple different versions of a game, it'd be much better to have one complete game version and multiple expansion stories added as mods. That's why modding hasn't taken off either as well as it could've, because the lack of up-to-date documentation and they keep making different versions, if you do some how manage to get into modding, it'll be outdated when they release a new version so you'll have to spend time trying to update so your mod works with the new version. Seems so dumb to me.

I'm sure you're not making whole new versions of the game everytime just for the money because if that was the case, start a freaking Patreon, bring huge attention to your game with a free demo, linking it to sites like LL (LoversLab) and make bank. The majority of people who'd be insterested in this game/s do not even know it exists. Maybe you don't want to start a Patreon because you would rather work on it in your own time and with Patreon you'd be giving yourself a schedule/rewards you'd have to hand out, but honestly half the people on Patreon barely do any work and get insane $$$. (Not saying they do zero work and some of them do loads of work, but with some it's obvious they do just enough to keep their patreon people happy so they can still collect on that fat juicy monthly paycheck.)


tl;dr Stick to one version of the freaking game with multiple expansions/mods, make a Patreon, gain huge attention and milk us.

Version 3.5 is released and downloadable and they are happy with 3.5 being 3.5(and so am i)
They could just make new stories for 3.5 but the engine has limitations and lots of them

So they decided to update the engine which requires a lot of breaking
(i started making a game in UE4 now 6 months later i have gone back to the start and remade a lot of the things
that were the best i could do at the time, now those parts work a lot better however the rest of the game does not work anymore)

Version 4 already has updated lighting with day night cycles (i think) and PBR materials
one of the parts i hate for making current scenes is having to render the lighting to texture
it takes time and the files are very large and at the end it still looks meh

Now this change alone would make me remake all my scenes and remake all the textures and materials
Characters would also need to be re textured
however the feelings and emotions you can evoke with just lighting would be well worth it

Doing all of the engine improvements at once is the best option

Discussions on the choice of game engine and its features and limitations is usually only constructive from the perspective of the developers, and no matter the choices made there will always be people who think they know better (even when they have literally no programming experience).

Making your own engine: "Should've used unity or unreal engine!"
Using Unity: "Should've used Unreal engine!"
Using Unreal: "Should've used Unity!"
Using something else: "That engine is so old it would be better if you made your own engine!"

Look at Fallout 4 and you will see that the engine is really no better than how well the game is made. Fallout 76 uses roughly the same engine.

I'm still thinking that this is more of a social experiment... This may be the first time I've looked at this forum in 2018...
8-) Getting to a "check back next year" model to see if my account still logs in....

As others have said -- This has become more of a curiosity rather than something that will actually be released... and there are other products being developed in more open beta fashion to allow us to forget about Xstory, except for an annual peruse of the scant posts in the forums... to be honest I tend to see if Eskarn has developed something since that's a more realistic probability....

Enjoy the close of 2018...
