This is a post I want everyone to be able to see- however NSFW posts must be locked to Patrons. So here's a public version of our latest Patreon post for those interested in the future direction of Spooky Starlets!
So, time and time again, we've had people request to be able to actually see the films they make. Usually my kneejerk reaction was- "that would be too complex, it would require too many animations, the point of the project is to just use your imagination!"
But after hearing it enough and thinking about it, I got to thinking. Would it be too complex? So, I ended up talking to a few animators about potential solutions which we could use to cycle our set of 12 positions across each of the girls with very little additional work. Now after an initial set of work, I am very proud to announce that we've figured out a working solution to introduce animations to the game!
As shown in these initial examples, we figured out a way to use the same animation for two different characters that have different proportions and body shapes. This gives us a lot of freedom to get creative with our girls while also not blowing up the animation budget.
We're still a ways off from actually implementing these into the game- and we don't have a terribly large amount of budget to churn these out, but I'll try and have these come out at a slow but consistent pace and post them here for Patrons to check out. Currently, we have some big plans for May. We want to add updated game mechanics and hopefully have the animations in by then.
Meanwhile for upcoming April content, we'll continue to produce new Starlets, CGs, and (ideally) more animations. The build in which Lucy will be introduced is delayed while I see about adding in a temporary placeholder tutorial.

Meanwhile, other things going on with the project- - - - - - -
We will be re-working the $3 tier. Not many people seem to be interested in the main adventure chart, so we want to transition that to being free content- while keeping the upcoming bonus charts locked behind the tier still. We are still thinking of another benefit to possibly replace the main adventure chart's removal from that tier.
Our current Starlet voting poll ends in approximately 3 hours!
Only 3 days left until we hand out the Susie Stitches Ringtones!
