    NEW OCTOBER DEMO!!
    MEGA


    If you want to support us and make the full game a reality, as well as get MONTHLY DEMOS of the game (at the $5 or up tier), then go to EDIT: Deleted link for rule violation and help us out!

    In return, you'll be able to get some neat stuff, including;




    • A level editor and cutscene editor that lets you make your own levels and cutscenes in-game and even add your own art into levels!
    • Your name in the game's Databanks (most of the Databanks in this demo had Patron names in them!)
    • All the audio that Amisakadarthana's recorded for the game, including un-used audio (and lots of it!)
    • The straight up source code for the entire game, which you can use however you like in your own projects
    • Your name in the game's backgrounds or credits

    Also, to clarify, if you pledge ONE TIME at ANY LEVEL, you get THAT LEVEL'S (OPTIONAL) bonuses FOREVER, plus a copy of the game if that's in that reward level.


    If you want updates on the game as well and our progress, just check this forum post, OR check my Tumblr at http://hentaiwriter.tumblr.com!


    For those of you who are new to the game, just control+F "game summary" down below!
    -----------------------------------------------
    For those of you who AREN'T new to the game, there's a LOT of stuff that's new in this since the last public demo, including;


    • Talia's attacks have been overhauled; she now has a powerful charge attack, as well as a proper jumping attack (and soon to be crouching attack!)
    • Fully voiced cutscenes have been added; each level will have around 4 to 8 cutscenes
    • Six new sex loops/animations were added (three boss cycles, boss's blobs, Faye scene, Injured Soldier scene)
    • All enemies have had multiple sound effects added to their movement, attacks, etc.
    • Almost every sound effect in the game that already existed has been worked over, like Talia's shots, for instance
    • 20+ visual props added to increase aesthetics for the game, both static and animated
    • All maps have been overhauled and reworked since the last public version, with a few new maps added as well, bumping the total up to over 30 playable maps in the public demo
    • There's now "sex sounds" (pelvic slapping, cum sounds, squirting, etc.) during hentai animations
    • Opening databank switched out with a series of text tutorials (full game will have actual optional gameplay tutorial set in the past before the Fire Level starts)
    • Vents added; these will blow Talia around the room and are used as a puzzle gimmick/element
    • More databanks added in general
    • Fire Level Boss and boss room added
    • Bottomless pits turned into lava pits, so the player knows explicitly where they can and can't jump down into

    -----------------------------------------------
    Here's what's coming up in the next few months (not in any given order);


    • Conversion to C++; this will take a LOT of weight off the game's engine
    • Completely remade editor (for both ourselves and editor tier backers)
    • Cutscene editor (for both ourselves and editor tier backers, so we can knock out cutscenes much, much faster)
    • Options menu, to reconfigure controls in-game
    • Mantis bug database, for players to submit bugs so we can fix them
    • Parallax scrolling
    • Dynamic lighting (shots, flame, etc. will dynamically light surrounding areas and take into account depth too)
    • 3D sound & upping the bitrate of audio already in the game for higher audio quality
    • Ice Level Demo #1 for Patrons due on the 25th of October; monthly demos will again be works in progress, so no delays on these!
    • HTML5 Conversion for the current Fire Demo ONLY, for Newgrounds
    • Splitting Talia's charge shot into two separate shots for more balanced gameplay
    • Giving Talia her Fire Dash for the Ice Level onwards
    • Ice Level databanks
    • Ice Level enemies
    • Ice Level tiles
    • New musical soundtrack, composed by CheshireCat, inbetween programming
    • ????? (There's a few surprises we want to keep secret until someone stumbles on them in-game; I think people will be pretty pleased though)

    -----------------------------------------------
    GAME SUMMARY

    Future Fragments is an adult platforming game, with a Science Fiction theme.
    The easiest way to imagine it is a combination of the following;
    -Sidescrolling platformer game mechanics
    -Science Fiction aesthetics
    -Old school, yet fair, difficulty
    -Lots and lots of sex with a huge variety of enemies

    Additionally, there's a large amount of world building/backstory to the game that's accessible through "Databanks", computer terminals you can access around the game. (Patrons can get their names/characters in these, and this demo has quite a few of those in fact!). The player isn't required to read these to advance in the game though, so they're more for extra enjoyment, they're optional.
    -----------------------------------------------
    GAME STORYLINE

    You play the part of Talia, an 18 year old female magician, living in the Medieval Ages.

    You're easily one of the most talented newcomers under your King's reign, and he has a special assignment for you; you're to be sent 2,000 years into the future, along with the #1 ranked magician in the kingdom, Faye, to find and gather artifacts to bring back to the present time, in the Medieval Ages.

    The King wants these artifacts to gain power for your domain, and to protect his citizens from evildoers who threaten the safety of his kingdom. Unfortunately for the King though, his magicians have different plans.

    Talia and Faye both want the artifacts for different reasons; Talia wants them so she can set out on her own, free of anyone ruling over her, and Faye wants them to overthrow the kingdom and become the new ruler of it. So, it's a race to find these artifacts, and to get back home, before the other magician does.

    However, the future is full of a LOT of strange changes to society, and a lot of dangers, including a whole host of really, REALLY pent up things that want to have their way with the mages!

    And on top of that, as Talia gets farther behind enemy lines, things start to get a lot more complex than just getting the artifacts and getting home...
    -----------------------------------------------
    GAME FEATURES


    • Five stages, each large and expansive, (the demo is just one level) with lots of secrets to find and explore!
    • 25 enemies, each with TWO H-Animations per enemy, for a total of 50 animations in-game, plus multiple traps!
    • Gain abilities from the bosses that give you additional utility to navigate around the levels, and find secret areas!
    • Fully voiced characters in cutscenes, by professional voice actresses!
    • Classic platforming gameplay, difficult but fair!
    • Over 75 moans/sex noises from Talia on the demo alone, with tons more for the full game! (25 penetration noises, 25 non-penetration, 23 specialty sounds for the Berserker #2 and Half-Demon #1 animations, and boss animation screams)
    • A wide variety of enemy designs, including humans, demons, tentacles, robots, ghosts, and many more, as well as a whole host of fetishes!
    • A translation of the in-game dialogue in multiple languages (currently Japanese and Spanish) once the game's completed, by a fluent speaker for each (no Google Translate here!)
    • 7 different endings (and we mean legitimately actual wildly different endings)

    That about wraps things up; again, please, if you can support us with any amount, it means the world to us, and we are working very hard to get this game out ASAP while still maintaining a high level of quality. Also, if you think this game is worthy of your time and money, please do pass the news on about this game to others you know!

    i like this new update especially giving us the choice to have sex with the guy at the end for info on the boss though i think you should have given us the choice to help your rival since it could lead to alternate endings with her ethier being friend or foe though it is your game so if you don't feel like it then i understand

    Yeah, they definitely aren't gonna end up being friends :P Allies, sure, but not friends; at this point in the game though, they have no reason to help each other out.

    Those of you who got last month's demo, most of this will look pretty unchanged, as most of what we're working on this month is code-related stuff rather than aesthetic stuff, but here's some screenshots showing off some of the new stuff we're working on (we've of course done more than this, but again, most of it's code-related stuff)

    And for those of you who didn't get last month's demo, well, here's more up to date screenshots and so forth!
    Do note that as always, this is in progress; we'll be changing quite a few things like say, the vignette getting removed for this particular level (as you're no longer in a tight, constricted cave, you're "outside"... an artificial "outside", at least.
    In fact, this level won't even have doors, to more replicate the feeling of this just being a gigantic outdoors area; you'll be able to tell where the "map exit/entrance" areas are at by that given corridor having special markings with the shadows in the corridor for that entrance/exit.

    - The fire dash
    - The second enemy for the level and its two stances
    - One of the attacks for the older, shorter alien

    This month's demo (for people who pledged in October) should be out at the end of November!

    You guys are doing great! I'm going to donate to this Patreon for sure! Still runs amazingly well on Linux using Wine. Are you guys planning on doing CG pics for Game Over screens as well?

    There's a pledge tier on the game per month, that if we reach it, we'll hire artists to do game over CGs! Thanks for the praise :D

    will we be able to play as Faye at some point in the future (like as a end of game bonus or a choice at the beginning?) her character sprite is rocking it for me.
