Release v1.00

Current status:

  1. In testing.
  2. An outage of approximately 1 hour.
  3. Finished.

This release won’t change anything about the game itself. I’m making improvements to player privacy because a lot of disturbing news is coming out of the US just now.

  • In Fleshcult, people choose which gender they want to play and which gender they want to fuck.
  • Fleshcult used an email address during sign up. Lots of people used a burner address (sensible!), but not everybody did.
  • I’m not in the USA, but my server is.
  • If Trump gets himself shot, impeached or ousted, Pence controls the US surveillance apparatus.
  • Pence really doesn’t like LGBT people.
  • It’s a really bad idea for me to have a  database that connects people’s email addresses with sexuality info lying around.

Here’s the plan:

  • Turn all the email addresses into hashes, much like I do with passwords. Reversing a hash is pretty difficult, so hopefully that should render the database useless to anybody who gets their hands on it.
  • You can still log into your old accounts. When you enter an email address I hash it and compare that hash against the database one.
  • You can use anything as an account username now, not just an email address. If you’re still worried, feel free to log in and change your username to something that’s not an email address.
  • Before hashing, I made a list of the emails of everyone who has opted to be on the newsletter, burned that list to a DVD, and stuffed it in my closet. It’s just email addresses, no sexuality info. If I ever restart development, I’ll use that to announce it.
  • I removed the Forgot Your Password system because it relies on being able to send mail.
  • You can’t buy account upgrades any more because that relies on mail.

Sorry about the inconvenience, but it’s important to take precautions before they’re required. I know I never finished that infestation tome, but this is all I could eke out time for. If the update broke something, let me know at: jack (at) (the game name) .com

    I’m from the US, and I do not like the new president or vice. With that being said, you might be over reacting a little bit. trump loves to run his mouth and tell lies, but he doesn’t have the power to really do anything to the internet.

    Hey, glad you’re still working on the game! Even if it’s only security updates.

  3. Pronema says:

    I am also glad to see another update come out, I was blown away to see that something more had been done and can only hope to see more.

    Also, I should mention that you should check out Fenoxo.com if you are still interested in games such as your own. It may renew the interest in your own development.

    • jackoekaki says:

      Yup, I know of Fenoxo, in the beginning he gave me a plug that was instrumental to getting crowdfunded. I’m finding that the NSFW top list at graphtreon.com is a good place to get a survey of the scene.

    While I heartily hope that your measures are never made necessary, it’s very good of you to do them.

  6. Yuko says:

    See? No issues online whatsoever. trump still sucks, but the porn is currently safe. So how about that updating? : )

    • jackoekaki says:

      True dat. Though it remains to be seen what Jeff Sessions’ policy is on porn. A revival of obscenity prosecutions would make it much harder to find business partners.

      As for me, I shipped my non-erotic project and while I broke even on production and living costs it doesn’t seem destined for much profit. I’ve been weighing up my options.

      Competing adult games have come a long way since I was working on Fleshcult, so it’s hard to know whether there’s still an opening there. I could test the waters with a Patreon that had a threshold for restarting dev (per update of course. No dev – no payments), but I suspect people would want to see a commitment on my end in the form of new updates before opening their wallets.

      • Yuko says:

        Eh that is ok. I’m just here being hopeful, but if you see no money in it, that is fine. Although there has been a spring in new H-games, this one always felt a bit… different. You could always try your luck with patreon, but it would take a lot of effort to show your product off and what you’d provide beyond. Still I thank you for all that you have done. Keep us abreast of anything new, fleshbult or otherwise.

    Still enjoy the game, but old Content very tedious. Really want new and improved. Pulling for you to do well

  8. M says:

    Gotta ask, is there more story content in this after the baron is defeated?

  9. Jeffrey says:

    is there a download link for this somewhere?

  10. bob says:

    Would really like to see this updated

  11. Haemolacria says:

    Hello, love your game! I hope you will resume working on it someday, it feels really unique.

  12. Mike pence says:

    So basically you came back to make a fucking blog post instead of finishing the game I mean seriously a game like this doesn’t need my email and this the only text game that I couldn’t download this isn’t a 1.0 btw the game hasn’t got an ending

  13. Yomommagay says:

    I’m pretty sure the dev couldn’t handle the outrage of a man he doesn’t like being the president and it drove him to madness.

    RIP game, you had potential

    • jackoekaki says:

      Oh I was mad a long time before Trump. I think Gumroad’s betrayal broke me.

    • Yuko says:

      Not many liked the orange scam artist taking office. It was better to prepare for the worst, when the worst comes to town. The Dev here though is working on other things, so it is best you don’t assume.

    Thanks for doing your best to look after us 😀
