    Hi, we’re Indoor Minotaur, a duo of experienced writers and game-makers, and we are creating an adult RPG called Daughter of Essence. You can find it on our patreon: Indoor Minotaur is creating Adult Games | Patreon.

    UPDATED! The public build of Daughter of Essence received another big update on 3-24-18, jumping from 0.14.6 to 0.24.2 and adding a massive amount of new content!

    Want to know more?

    In Daughter of Essence, you play as Mercy, a young woman who yearns to be free from mundane obligation, free from the oppressive watchfulness of her wealthy family, and free from the harsh laws of the empire. As one of the only living daughters of essence, however, freedom is not so simple. The Oldlight Empire and the Church both want her captured, and countless other factions want her strange gifts for their own gain.

    To be truly free, she must learn to sacrifice.

    Features:
    • Relevant and meaningful sexual encounters, written in detail and illustrated. All scenes featured in Daughter of Essence are consensual. We believe sex should be fun (and often weird). As long as it's consensual, nothing else is off the table. As we move along with the game, patrons will be able to suggest scenes they want to see!
    • Draw "essence" from elemental enemies, enchanted items and sexual encounters and use that essence to unlock new spells, potions, equipment upgrade runes, weapons skills, key items, and more!
    • Thought-provoking and deep character-building potential
    • Choose your class specialization, distribute stats how you want, equip different skillsets for different battles, change weapons mid-fight, raise proficiency with weapon types by using them, mix-and-match equipment to create your ideal build!
    • Sideview RPG combat with an Active Time Battle system and distinct timed-attack patterns for each weapon type and spell
    • Character-driven narrative with many paths and secrets
    • Base-building
    • A large, complex world with many factions, races, religions and interesting people

    There is no requirement to censor your in-game screenshots here. We do ask that you not use hard core porn for your avatar.

    I've 'cleaned up' this thread by deleting interim update posts. Once a new update is posted the old updates are no longer relevant.

    Yes, I'd appreciate it if you would do so. It would make it easier for people to find the latest news about your game without wading thru post after post of updates.

    Hello! It's a special release tonight, because we spent a lot of time polishing, fixing and tweaking to make sure the latest weekly build was also ready to be sent out to our alpha patrons.

    Version 0.34 is not a flashy build in some respects, but it gets a whole lot done AND adds 2 awesome new toys to the game, as well as their respective scenes.

    Another feature we're excited to announce is a planned reward for the First Mate tier of patrons. We've added a bathhouse to the cove with guest suites above it. From this point going forward, if anyone ever becomes a First Mate, they'll get a permanent, lore-friendly character with their own suite in the cove.

    Next week, version 0.33.1 will be going public to the world! Anyone can download the public version here: Indoor Minotaur is creating Adult Games | Patreon



    To see the rest of the pile of fixes and tweaks, have a little scroll through the patch notes.

    Thanks, everyone!

    • The following conditions will save costs: recruiting Hobart, buying lumber in Esterholt, having Ralph’s Carvannah shipment

    • Fixed another bug where some dialogue in the cove was not correctly triggering
    • Modified the effects of “Jolted” from 10% evasion to 10% critical hit chance
    • Fixed an issue where the ship sprite may look like a rowboat after Esterholt if the save file was started on a much earlier patch
    • Fixed an issue where Mercy wore her winter clothes back to the cove
    • Fixed an issue where Mercy’s portrait didn’t appear properly in the hunting grounds
    • Fixed an issue where Aunt Agatha cruised around during your chat in the cove

    • Fixed a couple of text run-offs
    • Fixed some typos
    • Fixed the Esterholt manor’s exterior not having a proper battle background
    • Fixed an issue where talking to Elijah from the side on the Esterholt docks could soft lock
