Hi I just wanted to ask if you could tone down the water reflection? It's very bright and quite frankly could cause seizures in its current state.
Log in with itch.io to leave a comment.
In recent builds the water simulation has increased to a point of being uncomfortable to look at.
I have decided to change the water simulation technology altogether in future to a more anime-style water shader.
Unfortunately there is no date on when that will take place at this time.
Thanks for writing to me.
is this game Available in JoiPlay or coming to Android soon?
I have no plans at this time to support JoiPlay or Android as the game’s controls are a little complicated for touch interfaces like Android.
However, I have learned a lot about game dev over time and I probably should reconsider this.
Were you hoping to play on phone or tablet?
Cant get past new game/ character custo. screen. Playing on Windows 10
Sorry to hear you’re having problems playing the game.
This was a problem in early builds for ultra wide resolutions, but I was certain I fixed it.
Could you let me know your screen resolution?
3440X1440. I don't mind playing it at a different resolution but I didn't see that option.
I am currently adding an options screen where you can select a resolution in 16:9 or 16:10 ratios.
That what the game is optimised for.
Unfortunately you will need to change your windows resolution to 1920 x 1080 to play this version :(
This game looks super promising! Also, looks very unique. I was just wondering, how did you make those models? What program did you use? And best of luck with the future of your game! I'm sure there are times when it can get frustrating, being a creator, but I hope you can see it through.
Merry Christmas! :D
Thank you. I started making this game because I craved this kind of experience and nobody seemed to be making them.
The models that are in the game currently are placeholders from the Unity Asset Store.
I am working with an artist to make more unique and flexible characters.
You can see more here
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you as well.
Hey, this game is awesome! I mean, it's really far away from being finished, and I found a lot of bugs (almost 100% my fault since I can't make a normal gameplay like a normal human being), but I really felt your spirit of making a game with actual interesting gameplay over just another dating simulator. You got my follow and I'll keep an eye from time to time to see your progress.
I got a question if it isn't very daring; to sync both character's animations during sex scenes, did you put two points in space for position and orientation and just created a state for both characters or made it in a different way?
I was thinking on having the main character model hidden on any enemy and swap with the main character for sex scenes, but doesn't seem like a very optimized solution.
Once again, congratulations for your game, I really enjoyed playing it even on that early stage <3
Hey there Atommyc,
Thanks for this. These comments are life to me and is extremely motivating to keep going.
I'm so glad you "get it". The reason I started making this game was because I found that a lot of VNs and dating sims felt too much the same and the static 2D characters were not enough for me.
I've spent most of my time putting technology and features in place that will enable me to create more story and animation content later.
As soon as I finish with Bedroom Blackjack I'll turn all my attention to MGT again.
There is an update for MGT coming next week btw ;)
In regards to syncing animations I developed my own puppet system. This uses some transforms in 3D space with the same parent transform e.g. malePelvis, maleLeftHand, femalePelvis, etc.
I animate these transforms and then bind the character bones to these points using IK.
However, I have decided that I need to hire an animator to remake all the H scene anims as individual anims. I'll sync them by having the female animator monitor the time of the male animator.
private void Update()
_femaleAnimator.Play(0, -1, maleAnimator.GetCurrentAnimatorStateInfo(0).normalizedTime);
Thanks for playing the game and taking the time to talk with me.
Is this going to be updated
Can you customize the main character?
Yes you can. When you start a game you can select eye colour, skin colour and eventually hair style.
At this stage these can only be changed when starting a new game.
There will be several outfits you can unlock lafter.
There are a few characters that have 2 x scenes. E.g. Sensei and Akeno.
The completed game will have at least 2 x scenes per character
Bugs I've found:
- Picking up Misato's sword before talking to her prevents the player from talking to her.
- Tabbing out of the game (while paused or in inventory) and going back to it soft locks.
- Player does not fall while walking into the invisible wall.
Thanks for reporting these. I am having trouble replicating these issues. I have a few questions.
- Does the conversation refuse to start or is the dialogue option to continue missing from the list?
- I am not applying any soft locks. Can you resume the game if you press the Esc key?
- I don't quite follow what you mean here. Can you attach a screenshot please?
- The conversation refuses to start.(I haven't been able to replicate this either)
- The soft lock only happens rarely so I've only been able to replicate it one other time.
- While walking or sprinting into the world border at a high enough place at a shallow angle the character will appear to be walking into nothing while also walking slightly in another direction.(sorry, couldn't get a screenshot as as soon as the character stops continuously walking into the wall, they fall.)
Olá vcs conseguem trazer uma versão para Android??
i just fall through the ground after talking to this bunnygirl in the beginning... wtf
This is an old bug that has been fixed in the next version.
I am in the process of shipping the next version at this very moment.
In the meantime you can press Esc and click the "Rescue Me" button to return you to the world.
i can't progress with akeno (she is hungry/2nd stage)), i've got the milk shake and have looked everywhere for anything else. any hints on how to continue
I've seen another comment talking about this, but this is mostly just i can't find anything else
This is a little tricky to find and harder to give hints without spoilers :)
I suggest you have a look around the pond.
You can walk around the pond on all sides and the fireflies will let you know when you're close.
If you still need help maybe ask the Discord community https://discord.gg/xwm73bN
whens next update?
The Monster Girl Tailes releases have slowed since I have been focusing on getting Bedroom Blackjack to market.
I'm still dedicating time to developing MGT. I have just not been publishing releases as often
I have been working on new level design, a new character and some new levels for Patreon Release 0.35.0.
I'm not quite sure when that will drop, but I'll make Public Release 0.34.3 will be available at that time.
I'll release some dev logs on Patreon soon to explain the progress made so far.
I can't equip the chocolate sundae
Some items cannot be equipped, but are very useful in a conversation.
I'll add something to the user interface that better expresses that in a future release :)
will this be only for pc. or will you make it available for other platforms aswell?
The plan is to finish the game for PC and then explore the possibility of building for Mac, Linux and microwave ovens.
how bout android? any plans for it?
Regrettably no. I am not sure this game would be very enjoyable on a mobile device and I don't have access to Android devices.
Did you fix the unable to load bug? Because I'm still having it in 0.33.0
The loading bugs were properly fixed in 0.34.3.
Provided your save file is still intact it should work as normal.
I'll upload this version in the next week or so.
why i keep having sex at the bridge??
it’s a bug that was introduced in 0.33.0. This has been resolved in the next version 0.34.3
IAMSorry to hear that, mate. Seems to work for me when both downloading Monster Girl Tailes from the website and installing in the itch.io app.
Let me know how it all goes or just come hang with me on Discord.
Hey i just tried this game i think it's a good start, i just can't complete the thing with the catgirl she still hungry how do i give her the chocolate sunday ? and how about the succube ? still stuck when she ask what should we do.
Akeno the neko will want different food at certain points in your relationship. If you can't give her the sundae maybe she feels like eating something else.
Kuroka the succubus is an incomplete story line so far. Checkl your journal to see the available relationship level with the girls currently in the game.
The journal also has a Game Completion percentage to let you know if you have completed all available content.
playing public 0.32.0 and I can't load my save (pulls up the Yes or No box and then I can't actually click either option) or get Kuroka to actually do anything on my third conversation with her no matter what I do.
Thanks for reporting this, capricedhusara.
This is a new bug. I'll get right on it.
Hopefully will be solved in the next release.
Wow! Gotta say, I'm really impressed! You did an amazing job! I felt like I was totally immersed in a whole new world! It was very original and everything felt right. The only frustration I had was figuring out how to use the sex scenes as a minigame, but I soon got the hang of it. I only got to 80% completion, but I felt like I was playing a game the entire time, and for an early build, this is by far the most fresh, and least glitchy one I've come across, well done! And the environment felt perfect too, right down to the gorgeous music and water, I don't know how you managed it, but everything is flowing like an A-Grade game, keep up the amazing work!
I can't tell you how much I appreciate feedback like this. The H scene minigame is still being finalised. I expect it to change once I get better H scene animations are done by a better animator.
I feel new motivation to finish this game this year.
had the two "Milk"scenes with the cat girl, it was just the guy character standing there in a blueish void, is that supposed to happen?
Hi Name nAme naMe namE,
This is definitely not supposed to happen.
The upgrade to Unity 2020.1 introduced this issue where the location of sex scenes gets confused
It is a known bug and I am working to resolve it for the December release.
Thanks for reporting it!
So when i went to transition from the first area to the second, the map didn't load properly in time causing me to fall through the map, corrupting my save. Just wanted to throw that out there just in case for future updates :)
Thanks for the feedback. The level streaming is very nice when it works and infuriating when it doesn't :)
I am working on a permanent fix for this bug, but I'll add a "Rescue Me" menu item to deal with this.
It will teleport your avatar to a safe place within the game zone.
Should be ready for the next release.
Will there ever be mac version for this? It looks like a really cool game.
I’d like to support Mac & Linux on Vulkan one day.
I will try to make a stable Mac build when I get to beta. That is likely early 2021 at this rate
Hey i have a problem when i press ''New Game'' im just stuck at the customize your character it doent even show the ''New Game'' Anymore
Sorry for my bad grammar
There was a similar issue like that a while ago when not using a 16:9 or 16:10 screen resolution in Window Mode.
Try running it on full screen mode. If that doesn't help could you send me a screenshot so I can work out what's happening?
Can I ask you to change something?
I’m always open to feedback. Let me hear your idea.
Can you change the walking motion?
This is a common request. I am waiting on a new male character model with better proportions that will solve this issue.
I didn't want to waste time on the placeholder male model.
I'll get a quote from an artist and see what can be done about the current model.
Dude, why theres names in trees?
Patrons & subscribers pay for the privilege of being immortalised in the game world. Their names appear in trees, statues, plaques and soon fountains.
It’s a way to thank my supporters for their generous contributions and making it possible for me to make this game.
0.30.2 has been released and it has the fix for the critical bug where you cannot start the game if you are playing in Windowed mode.
I grabbed the alpha 0.29.3 and when I start a new game, I can customize my guy but there is no way to proceed.
Make sure you enter a name or Click the Random button to randomly generate a name before clicking OK button.
When playing in windowed mode (on my Windows laptop) the menu isn't in the box. Additionally, when creating a new character, the options were similarly misaligned, I couldn't change the hair type, and there were no buttons for picking a name or moving forward.
Changing to fullscreen resolved most of the issues. However, I couldn't enter a name. I was able to move forward with the game, however so maybe I just couldn't see the name being entered.
Previous versions were great, but people might get turned off too early if the character creation part is bugged. Good luck though! I'm excited to see where this goes!
Thanks for reporting this, mate. Nice troubleshooting.
I have fixed the issue and it will be available in the next Patreon Release.
However, I will have a fix the current version in the next day or two. Retrofitting the fix into an older version is fiddly :)
Thank you very much! If the next version has the fix, then that's the most important part. If you can fix the current version, that's great, but not as essential.
Again, thanks for making this game! I'm looking forward to the next version!
This is an introduced bug. A fix will be available soon.
Thanks for reporting it.
im sorry but where is the beast?
The beast is a big part of the plot and is coming later.
I’m working on some of the more technical items in the game at the moment. I’ll add more story/plot later.
Love the game so far!
Question, is Natsu's progression implemented? I have 100% on everyone else, but Natsu shows 5 levels in the journal. And I can't find any way to interact with her other than her hinting the village is supposed to be there. I have checked the whole map several times and can't find any more items.
I’m glad you’re enjoying the game.
I’m afraid that’s all she does in this version. A bug in the current version shows more than one relationship circle.
This has been fixed in the latest Patreon version
How do I get to the bunny girl?
Nice game btw
Thanks, mate. It’s shaping up nicely.
To find Natsu you’ll need to run past the pond and follow the canyon to Greenfen Forest.
Then take the path to the village.
could you please help me i have a black screen when i start the game v
MonsterGirlTailesv0_27_0 64bit.zip476 MB
Sorry to hear it. Usually this is caused by antivirus software removing some core files required by the game engine.
- Disable your antivirus temporarily - usually a right click menu from the system tray
- Extract the zip file again
- Run the file "Monster Girl Tailes 64-bit.exe"
NOTE: Don't forge to re-enable your antivirus software afterwards.
It may also be your zip software. Using something free like WinRAR or 7-zip should be fine.
Sometimes the inbuilt Windows extracter doesn't work so well.
i am gay
On the catgirl's "milk" scene, her breasts are off-kilter (one is significantly higher than the other on her frame). Played with camera rotation to see if it was just the angle I was looking from, nope, it was the model. Possible its just me, but in case it isn't, figured I'd mention it.
You’re right about the breast position.
it’s a minor bug with the breast physics. I just have to modify the arm position
After talking to Natsu the journl breaks. It only shows hair and outfits of the girls and sometimes the wrong ones. Other than that, it's a great start and I'm excited to see where it goes.
Do you mind sharing a bit of your tech stack for this? What did you use to make the models/animations? Are they variants from a set of prefabs or did you work from scratch in blender or something? I love the look of this game.
Hi Black Finch,
I bought the original models from the Unity Asset Store and then hired artists to make heavy modifications. Tools used varied by contractor, but mainly Blender and Maya.
I then use my custom mesh combiner to assemble the characters with hair, body proportions, clothing, etc. The mesh combiner also rigs the skeleton accordingly.
I would recommend making your own character models instead of buying assets if you have the ability. It makes for a more unique looking game and is a fraction of the cost/effort.I’ll never do it this way again :)
This game is pretty neat as far as it is, the models and world have potential.
There are two things I'd love to see, or to know how to archive if already implemented:
1) A continue button. I was very confused that I saved and couldn't continue the game. Took me a while and a couple times of replaying the beginning until I realized, I could save, exit the game, open the game again, start a NEW game and do a quick load from there.
2) a positional reset. Either to a fixed point I lately came across or - to keep things simple - to the starting position of the game. As of right now I'm stuck due to a bug while an H-Scene. Suddenly map and female Character disappeared, leaving me with a sky and the protagonist. As the protagonist looks up all the time, I could only guess, that I got below the map and I can't see it from below because the areas are rendered from one side only.
As the concept is a nice one and I really like the models and the small-but-open-world style the game has, I'll closely watch how the game develops :) Keep up the good work!
I'm glad you enjoyed the alpha so far.
1) A "Continue" button for the main menu is coming. I am sorting out some bugs with loading of the game directly from the menu at the moment.
2) Rather than add a reset position feature I'd rather just fix the bug. Which H scene is it you are having issues with? Which girl?
You can look forward to some more open levels and more characters in the not too distant future.
thats great news :D
About the bug:
It appeared right at the beginning of the H-Scene with the feline sword-wielding girl at the small bridge, schould be Misato. It's the first/only H-Scene with her. I think the time was set to day. Got a sword, Ice cream and Head band in inventory. I guess I got myself a new map already. I also asked Himeko for a sword again and she gave me one, game showed the gain message but there was still only one sword in the inventory. Not sure if that could have something to do with the bug, but is the only 'outside the box behavior' I could think of, that I did in the game before that bug.
The bug itself:
After the last line of dialogue, the Protagonist and Girl should change position for the H-Scene to happen. Protagonist does just that - and goes through the whole scene, given his lack of clothes and his movement. But all alone - the girl was gone and with her the whole map. All to be seen is the sky and a dark blue abyss beneath the protagonist. After what is probably the length of the scene the protagonist turned back to clothed and upright standing. I can't move him, can't even trigger the walk/run animation. I can get into the inventory, change the time, open the menu. So all the keyboard reactions are fine, including save and load. Cameramovement is fine too, can look in all directions, right up and right down.
Beside that bug:
Hope that (lengthy) description will help to track the bug down. Do you have some kind of public bug-list, where people could submit bugs and look up what bugs are submitted already? I personally hesitate to submit on, say itch comment section or similar, minor bugs, that probably someone already told you about, maybe even 30 times. Having a list I could go through and only add a new bug if it's not already listed would be neat.
i have very high hopes for this game but i will say there is a lot of bugs. although i did have a fun time. am i supposed to know how to use the dev tools? and there is a bug with that, if you up the relationship at all with any girl you can never talk to them again
I’m glad you enjoyed the game. It is still in alpha, but I have tried to put enough in the game that it is possible to see the potential of what the finished game could be. The bugs will be fixed one by one as I go.
The dev tools are just for me when testing the game. They’re no intended for players so there are side effects like you mentioned. You can use them if you like, but you use at your own risk :)
