Centers around a guy (Mr. Rogers) who takes over the management of a failing hotel. The original design was to be a resource management/business simulation game but it soon became obvious that story was far more interesting than yet another earning X pounds in Y weeks type of game. Although some game aspects are still present and the choices made will have effects within the story, the story has prevailed.
While the center of the main characters attention at the beginning will be his secretary Sophie there are plenty of other female characters in the story and I plan on letting my Patreon’s influence who gets the lion share of development time and welcome any suggestions they may have for how this can be made a better experience for all.
First big change is I have moved from 720 to 1080p. All new renders and animations are done in 1080p and all the 0.1 renders and animations have been redone in 1080p. Most of them got re-lit as well. Many got tweaked and a few got completely redone. I was going to release this with all renders using webp encoding for maximum compression and ease of download but I found that some images are left with noticeable defects and artefacts so I have done a compressed version version using webp (which is still pretty good) and an uncompressed png version (which is ten times the size). Choose the version which best suits your bandwidth.
Emily (the gym manager) got a lot of love in this update. I started her story and was just enjoying it so much I kept going.
The girl on the train got a bit a love.
Christine and Sophie get one big scene together and a few smaller appearances.
This update also includes then end of the regular admin requirements each week. Hoorah!
