ArtWitchStudios's News

Posted by ArtWitchStudios - 2 weeks ago


A few of you might have noticed that there were no changes in Night 1 for web. That's because of a save error I went back and fixed. When I did, it seemed I was getting a heavy database mutation error, again. I tried to work on it for a week, I got it to lighten up but it seems to still happen.


We highly recommend that you check out Love Sucks on Steam or Itch for the actual installer. It runs more stable and now has music!


Still, had to upload to here. Was important. Any bugs let me know


Also, did a few grammar fixes as well!

The update to Night One we've been working on for a while is here! If you want something spooky and sexy to play on your Halloween evening, here it is! The Night One updated includes a couple of bonus scenes, a little bit of lewd, and some expanded plot that introduces a character who will be recurring in future nights! Here's a full changelog:


1. Added two new scenes! 

2. Added pictures to other ones

3. Added more music!

(Web version only) Disabled music. The stuttering audio bug was a problem with HTLM5 that we were unable to fix no matter how much we tried to make it behave. After several complaints, we decided it was better to turn it off than grind down your ears with awful sounds. For the best listening experience, play on Steam or download the game from Itch.io to run locally on your machine!

-Developed a crossfader so music begins and ends better

-Discovered oggs can be better

-Relooped music!

-Releveled music for optimal listening

4. Fixed Pictures -Fixed Dr. B's images

-Fix Naomi images

5. Added more sound effects

6. Added a sound effect on the right channel so those of you who are crazy and don't love our voice actors should be able to sit in silence.

7. Added so many voice effects

8. Many bug fixes

9. Added Replays that just show the scene

10. Reworked character select

11. Did code work for several things coming up


We wanted it out before Halloween, but we'll take Halloween itself too! Why did it take longer than we expected? Well, Frosto, the head writer and programmer heard a sad mewing at his apartment door one day, and he took in a little kitten. After finding the owner, he was allowed to keep her!


This is Callie, and she is the little troublemaker who kept distracting him.

So what's next? We continue work on Night Two, of course! When is it coming? Well, a lot of things have happened this year, for all of us. It's been quite stressful at times, but work continues at a steady pace. Not as quickly as we were hoping, but sometimes it just be like that, you know? We have more art to finish, more writing to work on, and some more fun bits to program. If we want to make this game without having a stress-induced meltdown by crunching, Night Two is going to be coming out in the early part of 2022, barring any unforeseen circumstances. As Night Two will be a paid game, I would rather give you (and I'm sure you'd all rather play) a polished game than one we rushed and didn't enjoy working on!


As always, follow our Twitter and join our Discord for updates and to hang out with us <3

Exactly one year ago, Kayla hit the button to launch Love Sucks. We were honestly so scared, we didn't know if anyone was gonna play it.


267,063 views later, 2,080 fans, 6665 exp and 1,146 friends on discord, seems our worries were unjustified.


Thank you for being one of the greatest communities on the internet, through the critiques and the great comments, through the fun of spending the year checking every day.


We were going to make a big update, but then a cat dropped into my lap and has delayed it. But it will be coming out, free here with two new scenes.


And of course, night two is coming as quickly as we can make it. Y'all great.


Keep a look out for the update this week. And if you haven't yet, join our discord. Strange people doing strange things.

Hi All, working hard on Night Two but wanted to make a few fixes to Night One

-Biggest update to this is that Anna's gift now has sounds. We had them recorded but didn't have the time to cut them up for the scene, but we finally got them in

-We also did changes to the credits. It's now easier to enter. We didn't plan on it, but we've added our Patrons to Night One! (Working on that shinier bit for upper tier. Thank you all!)

-Did various spelling corrections and grammatical changes

-No longer says Sarah's model will be in a future update. It was in last update

-Code shuffle and additional updates


As always, follow us on Twitter

And our Discord!

And we have a Patreon too!

-Night Two preview: We added a preview of Night Two, along with a small preview gallery!

-Feed Sammy: We have a game were you can feed the cat. It's under Extras


Fixes:

-Visual updates:

 -Anna No Ears: When Anna takes off her ears, the ears stay off this time

 -Anna placement: When Anna transforms she stays in the same spot

 -The Fourway: The meetup in the library is more spaced out and should flow better

 -The missing hand: Jan now flips the switch properly

 -Assorted other fixes


Other improvements:

About six months ago we started right here for you fine folks of Newgrounds, and now we're up on steam.


Night One is up for free on Steam, with an exclusive Night Two Preview, a minigame, and new UI. I'll eventually get it over here, but if you're tired of the sound skipping, go check it out!

Hey Everybody,


So the end of the year was crazy for us, along with setting up a business we also go the patreon up and running, and we're prepping for Night Two. But there was some things from Night One to finish, and we're working through those. Dr. Blankenship in all her glory has been added to the game. Sarah hopefully will be coming along soon to.


There was a lot of technical fixes for performance done. The game is now under 50 megs, and effects and general editing problems were fixed. Though the average user isn't going to see a lot of changes, this is pretty big, because this means that the game has been halved in size since we started. However, three big changes:


  1. By popular demand, we increased the font size. I know that doesn't seem like a lot but that changed a lot. A lot of dialogue had to be retested and effects had to be moved around. But hopefully it's a lot easier to read.
  2. Dr. Blakenship has been added.
  3. Thanks to a user named bobdillan, we decided to redo some of Theo's motivations when it came to the girls and Naomi. He made a compelling case and we're working on smoothing out the bumps. Theo's motivations went through a lot of changes, and that was a point that bothered us, so we reworked it.


There may be a few more versions that come out before the week is out, but we're back on track!
