New Public Build: Chapter VI

The time has come!

Version v0.60.1 is officially live and available to the public on both Windows and Mac, adding the latest chapter and all the bug fixes and general improvements that come with it. You can download it here: https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur.

So, what exactly is new? You can see the entire change log here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing but for the (very) abbreviated list:
  • Extended the main story line by several hours
  • You can ride Orus around outside for increased speed
  • You can now mine silver & gold around the world and use it to craft jewelry if your forge is upgraded
  • Added eight new written NSFW scenes
  • Added and revised new portraits and illustrations
  • Added new skill and spellbooks to the game
  • Performance optimizations
  • Balance adjustments
  • Lots and lots of bug fixes

Q. Will my old save version work?
- A. Yes, but you may experience some bugs--especially visual. Save often and proceed at your own risk!

Q. I found a bug! Where do I report it?
- A. You can reply to this post or post in our public Discord's designated bug report channel.

Q. How do I know when the build ends? (Spoilers)
- A. Chapter VI ends once Mercy returns to the cove from Witchdale.

Thanks for playing, and if you enjoy the game, spread the word & consider becoming a patron!

New Weekly Build: v0.63!

Hi folks, we're back with another build this week--the last one before all the holiday madness! Builds WILL resume over the holidays, so you'll have plenty to do through the new year.

Chapter 7 is well under way, and we're beginning work on an entirely new continent: Grey Clarion, home of the nomadic and isolated harps.

This week's build gets a lot of new things started, but it also goes back and adds some nice touches to the debug room (accessible to Old Salt patrons and above), something we've been neglecting for a little while. Now you'll be able to unlock every scene in the game, even if you didn't choose a certain path or don't have certain characters unlocked, etc.

New to the game? You can download the public build or become a patron at https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur.

Until next time, we hope you enjoy!

Best,

Nym

  • Added level 20 shade to the debug room for higher-level build-testing

  • Fixed an issue where Orus could block Mordecai*s path, creating a soft-lock

  • Fixed a misaligned greatsword animation

  • Fixed an issue where Beatrix was in the 2nd character slot instead of Orus, making her follow Mercy
  • Disabled player followers between when Beatrix is on the trader vessel and when Mercy reunies with Orus and Beatrix
  • Reverted a change where enemies or the player could die from slip damage
  • Poison now fades after 300 steps

New Weekly Build & Art Announcement

The patch notes for the latest weekly build are below, and we're happy to say that they are cool and good, but we have an even more important announcement to make.

We have decided to bring an artist onto our team, so for the last two weeks, we've been in long and sometimes excruciating talks with dozens of qualified people, trying to find someone who is the right combination of available, talented, affordable and invested in the project, which is a sort of modern holy grail of attributes.

That said, we have made some progress. Not so much progress that we can announce a name and a time, but enough that we feel confident in announcing that our search is fully under way and that we've narrowed it down to a few potentials.

That said, nothing is set in stone, and if you know someone who you feel is right for the job, now is a very good time to pass that information along.

Version 0.66 - 1-11-2019
  • Added a new cove event in Ch. 7
  • Added a new toy to Wulfhilde*s tier 3 workshop: The Cathedral
  • Added a new NSFW scene (solo F, toy)
  • Added new lines of dialogue to everyone in the cove
  • Added a new illustration to the Sparkling Plug scene
  • Added rooms to the second floor of the cove dormitories
  • There is now a new, duplicate cove area that players switch to after Ch. 7. (This was necessary because events have a 20 page cap, and this cap had been exceeded on a growing number of NPCs. Now I can start fresh and help keep organized.) There is also a new duplicate cove tavern
  • The first cove upgrade now correctly costs funds from Mercy*s stash
  • Upgrading the throne room now correctly costs funds
  • Updated the scene library with all recent scenes
  • Fixed an issue where cove images could overlay during cutscenes
  • Fixed an issue where combat read “she could not escape” even when controlling Marlan
  • Fixed a number of typos and text alignment issues
  • Fixed some misaligned item sprites

New Weekly Build: v0.67!

Another week, another update to Daughter of Essence for our patrons!

This one packs in a lot of new content in the cove, including tons of new character dialogue and a lot of that big, juicy story progression we've been building up to for a couple of updates.

It's been fun fleshing out the characters at home, so to speak, and there's plenty more where that came from in the future.

If you would like to become a patron or try out the public build, please visit https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur.

On the artist front, we've tentatively narrowed our focus down to one very promising candidate, and we'll update you as soon as everything's official. Let me just say... Audrey and I are very excited and optimistic about the future.

That's it for me tonight--see you soon!

- Nym

New Build: v0.68!

Hey folks, just wrapped up the latest weekly build, which takes the big leap of expanding the world east, in preparation for the next big adventure.

As I might have mentioned already, we've also settled on a long-term artist (whose work is featured above), and we'll get around to making introductions once everything is finalized.

It's going to be good. At least, I'm pretty sure it's going to be good. I'm like 94% positive that it's going to be good, and those are the kinds of odds I like to bet on. Daughter of Essence has come a long way since we launched this Patreon, and the game has nowhere to go but up from here. And that's damn well where we plan on taking it.

A reminder that if you would like to try the public build or become a patron, visit us at https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur.

  • Created the custom Benn Wilkes sprite and portrait
  • Implemented transition back to original sprites and portraits
  • ATB tick formula has been adjusted, slightly nerfing the effects of AGI on ATB speed and increasing ATB speeds at lower levels across the board
  • Adjusted Isabelle and Edward encounter
  • Fixed a handful of portrait issues in the cove
  • Fixed an issue where the boat was transported just outside the cove even when it shouldn't be
  • Updated some lines of dialogue that felt out of place in the current timeline
  • Fixed an issue where you couldn't ride Orus in the chapter 7 cove
  • Fixed an issue where Orus wouldn't appear in the cove as a follower after Wulfhilde arrived
  • Fixed an issue where Gorstag hung around the docks after Marlan left with the ship
  • Added a new boat sprite for the Oldlight scouting vessel
P.S. ...Guess what build comes next...

Version 0.69, Dude (Weekly & Alpha)


At long last, after many hard months, we have arrived at version 0.69. To commemorate this occasion, naturally, we had to implement a new, thematically-appropriate NSFW scene.

But beyond the number of the build, this week marks another major occasion! After a few weeks of teasing and insinuation, we're finally pleased to OFFICIALLY welcome our new artist to the project long-term!

Her name is Numinox, or Numi for short, and she will be helping us with our art assets for the foreseeable future, so I hope you'll welcome her aboard and look forward to seeing what she contributes to the game! She's very talented and brings a cool style of art that Audrey and I think will fit in really nicely.

New Weekly Build, Version 0.70!

Here's the latest weekly build, in all its Frankenstein glory.

I worked on a lot of different bits and pieces this week, some of which weren't finished in time for version 0.70, so there are a few placeholders in there for now. Thus is the life of a dev who puts out a build every week, though, so y'all are used to that by now.

Even considering the works in progress, it's still a nice little build with some very oft-requested "features" snuck in there. It's a bit of a secret scene for now, so I won't spoil the fun.

New to the game? Try out the public build or become a patron at https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur!

  • Fixed Prince of the Deep having earth essence for some reason

  • Shells now remove Drowned as well as Sleep and Paralysis

New Weekly Build: v0.72!

Hi everyone, hope you're well and excited for the weekend. As is our custom, we have some CHOICE entertainment options you might consider integrating into your weekend activity list.

The art in our header is courtesy of Indoor Minotaur's newly contracted artist-in-resident, Numinox. We hope you like it, because there'll be plenty more where that came from going forward.

Next week, I'll be taking a little break from advancing the primary narrative to start tackling more SIDE-QUESTS and optional or secret content. This kind of stuff really gets me going, so I'm excited about it and hope you are as well.

New Weekly & Alpha: v0.73!

Hi everyone!

We're pleased to present the latest weekly & alpha build, version 0.73!

In fact, in much the same way that a Robert Frost poem might, this build diverges along two paths: one with additional features that is NOT compatible with old save files, and one without those additional features that IS compatible with old save files.

These builds will be very explicitly notated, so you don't have to worry about getting the wrong one. However, if you're not far along with your save, haven't tried the game yet or are even considering starting over from scratch with new decisions and a new build, you'll definitely want to pick up version 0.73.1.

The final consideration is that at some point down the line, the old save compatible versions will stop. It's simply too much work preparing two very different builds every week, but I didn't want to cut everyone off cold turkey. That just seemed rude. My current approximate deadline for that is with the public launch of chapter 7, which is still many weeks away.

I hope you understand! And without further ado, the patch notes (for both releases):

Version 0.73.1 - 3-1-2019 (New Game Required)
  • Mercy and Orus can both equip two accessories
  • Equipment types Orus can't equip no longer appear
  • Added new categories for better inventory organization
Version 0.73 (Old Save Compatible)
  • Added a new NSFW scene! (Beatrix, Toy, Futa)
  • Added a hunter's campsite to the overworld
  • Added new treasure to the overworld
  • Added all new Ch. VII Esterholt content
  • Added more progression clues to the siblings portion of Ch. VII
  • Added new cooking recipes
  • Fixed a sink tile error
  • Fixed an issue where you can leave Fort Wilkes without your crew
  • Fixed some typos
  • Fixed an issue where Beatrix's direction was incorrectly locked
  • You can now cook in the Esterholt manor oven
  • You can no longer hear the sea from inside the cove dormitories

New Release: v0.74!

Happy release day, everyone! Same as last week, it's split between two builds (to continue for a little while longer): one that is compatible with ALL old saves, and one that requires a v0.73 save or newer.

The old save compatible versions will be phased out eventually--probably once I wrap chapter 7 up and make it public. I wish there was a way around this, but alas. I'll make sure to ease the pain somehow.

Also, if you haven't yet, check out our brand new trailer here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3xsrvi8aQM

New Release: Version (Fallout/Soldier) 0.76!

Hi, everyone! This week's build, version 0.76, is the patron release of what will eventually become the next public build, which means it's not far off!

This ALSO means the save compatible grace period is approaching its gruesome end. I expect support for old save files will end around after version 0.78, so apologies in advance for that.

New to the game? Become a patron or try our free public build at https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur.

I'd like to take a little time this week to advertise some of our other outlets as well, especially since many people have an (understandable) aversion to Patreon's increasingly problematic business model.

You can find us in a bunch of different places:

Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3xsrvi8aQM
Twitter: https://twitter.com/IndoorMinotaur
Itch.io: https://indoorminotaur.itch.io/daughter-of-essence
Game Jolt: https://gamejolt.com/games/daughterofessence/336983
Discord: https://t.co/Ia3YoXhfdy

And soon, we'll also be expanding our subscription service beyond Patreon to other comparable sites, as requested by a number of fans and patrons alike.

Until then, we're continuing to make our game bigger and better, and we hope you enjoy.

Version 0.76 - 3-22-2019

  • Added new strangers scene
  • Added return to cove and new cove dialogue
  • Added new cove scene

  • Marlan now exists in the cove after returning from Southgate

  • Fixed several typos
  • Statue beneath the Eastern Spire now reports the correct combination

New Weekly & Alpha Release: v0.77!


Hello! This week "officially" concludes chapter 7 and begins chapter 8, although I still have a few loose ends I'd like to tie off before I can remove those quotation marks.

That said, we're excited to be starting the next chapter of our journey. To celebrate the conclusion of chapter 7, our new public build is coming as soon as NEXT WEEK, so that's big news for our non-patron followers! It's been many months in the making, so we hope you're looking forward to it.

New to the game? Become a patron or try out public build here: https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur.

Without further ado, the patch notes for our latest release.

New Weekly Release: v0.79!

Hi everyone, we're back with another weekly release. This has been a very polish and maintenance-heavy week on account of the fresh public release and all the feedback we've received, but we still managed to get some new content developed along the way.

New Release: v0.80!!!

The EIGHTIETH build of Daughter of Essence is being uploaded now, if you can believe it (not including hotfixes!)

New to the game? Want to try the public build? Want to become a patron? Visit https://www.patreon.com/indoorminotaur!

This week's release is the start of our new "dragonbones" implementation, which is a system whereby we can start to animate some of our larger boss fights with a lot more flexibility. This creates much more lively encounters, and it also tends to save file space compared to the old sprite sheet method of animation.

It's a slow process and it requires a lot of learning new things, but so far I'd say it's already paying off. Beyond that, the new Hawk's Keep area has expanded quite a bit this week, and there is a huge pile of other bug-fixes and QoL improvements we've knocked out again.

This has been a productive week, as it turns out.

Version 0.80 - 4-19-2019
  • Added new areas to the Hawk's Keep sinkhole
  • Added major new boss fight to Hawk's Keep sinkhole
  • Added several new enemies to the Hawk's Keep sinkhole
  • Began implementation of “Dragonbones,” animating several boss encounters
  • The “equip” animation in combat now correctly plays over the character equipping
  • Guts is no longer spinning around confused during a cutscene
  • One of Petrova's crew mates no longer wanders away from the table during a cutscene
  • Ralph now correctly leaves the infirmary at the end of the Carvannah chapter
  • Orus's navy and green backpacks now require the correct dye color
  • Fixed a bug where a box contained infinite wool cloth
  • Fixed a possible soft-lock when talking to the blonde harp as Marlan
  • Fixed an issue where trying to leave the mine after hitting the keeper with a shovel doesn't play the right lines of dialogue
  • Fixed a passability issue on the bridge beneath the mine
  • Several quests now correctly resolve in the journal
  • Hallie no longer appears in the cove inn if she wasn't rescued (RIP)
  • Player followers are now disabled starting in the finder monastery until reunited with Orus
  • Ursus Chordata is no longer a fish. It's been changed to a cool giant crab
  • Fire Wisps are now correctly resistant to Earth magic, rather than weak to it
  • Fixed an issue where equipping Orus with a backpack caused the screen to fadeout when exiting the menu
  • Fixed a table passability issue in the cove
  • Fixed a portrait flicker when talking with Abner in the manor
  • In the initial fight with Marlan, his attack has been replaced with a skill called “Taunt,” which deals less damage & Burn is now the last status applied
  • Gin and Katarina no longer appear in Shiveworth until after Mercy is captured
  • Changed a few lines of dialogue with Abner
  • The leaf spirit in Shiveworth no longer requires the action button to trigger
  • Revised a few early choice menus to share better continuity with the rest of the game
  • Fixed a portrait flicker when boarding the ship in Shiveworth
  • Fixed a portrait not appearing correctly when returning to Ginny a second time to buy a fishing rod
  • TP required to trigger Trance state up to 150 from 100
  • Fixed some text-runoffs in Abner's room
  • Fixed some typos in Shiveworth
  • Fixed an issue where sell shops previewed the sale as an expense rather than a gain (thanks to a member of the Discord, Lexicographer)
  • The sun chest is now visible in Esterholt before you get a Sun Key
  • The ladders/ropes of Hawk's Keep now disable player followers while climbing
  • Tweaked the cutscene where Mercy fights the finder slightly, to try and avoid strange party follower behavior
